02/02 00:50 - WaterFear by arcan770077f
RD3CTFQ3_v2: Huge open space map, mostly resembling a long boxy well,
split up on two parts by a vast massive wall. In the center of each base large
and high towers are surrounded by water. Flags are placed inside. Bases are
connected only with two passages along the sidewalls....
02/02 00:50 - Unholy Sanctuary by Martinus
An extremely ambitious map pack consisting of 4 unique, but similarly themed
maps. A lot of work has gone in to the construction of these maps.

Visually overwhelming at first, you may simply spend the first few minutes of
each map exploring the details. Reading the...
02/02 00:50 - OVerSKill CTF by V1979
A CTF conversion of Overkill!, original by
Wiebo de Wit. The gameplay is better
than expected but the level looks like it was made by Wiebo de Wit in
2000, not a based on or inspired by conversion in 2014 by a
different author.

There are a number of...
02/02 00:50 - Ancient Hall by r3x.theCat
This large DM/TDM map is very well done. An extraordinary massive Egyptian
temple. You will be feeling like an ant most of the time due to the very size
of most of the objects in the environment. However, this is to also include the
stairs, which feel too big, clunky, and...
31/10 03:45 - Hit the Floor by r3x.theCat
This map could have been a very interesting release if it was not for some errors:

There are missing textures (ssctf3/s_beam_red.tga, cpm24/redstatic.tga)
It is hard to identify the placement of the jumppad because the texture is not obvious.
Distance between some...
31/10 03:45 - The Rage (2) by the Shib
A conversion of the famous Quake 2 map The Rage (ztn2dm3) by ztn.

There really is little to say about this poor conversion other than:

The lift and ambient sounds are missing.
Higher resolution textures would look better (and they do also exist).

It's...
31/10 03:45 - Trespass by Pat Howard
Trespass is a map for relaxing. Pat Howard made it as a learning lesson
to practice mapping skills and as an early alpha &38; beta tester I could say
the layout is perfect.

The theme consists of an abandoned facility overgrown by plants, which have
been made...
31/10 03:45 - DeadStrong by Johann Slee
I would name this map Horror in Turkish Baths for its visual aspect.

It is nice enough for duels and FFA (2-5 players). There is a central hall
with a pool of blood which can be overlooked from different levels.
Corridors with stairs which lead from the hall into opposite...
10/09 13:45 - Catch Up by r3x.theCat
This map is a significant token of disrespect to those who would download it. I
don't know why someone would create a map like this.

The level looks like a huge race track with primitive monotonous textures -
complete with texturing errors.

The map may work...
10/09 13:45 - Hydra by Pat Howard
Yet another excellent masterpiece from Pat Howard.
Hydra is a map themed in a futuristic industrial site with clean metal
and concrete walls and number of crates laying around. Water is a major
feature.

For textures, Sock's industrial set
was chosen along with...
10/09 13:45 - MiniCtfArena by Diman8369
MiniCtfArena is a tiny, symmetrical CTF map that is only suitable for
1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2 CTF matches. Any more players and game goes
chaotic due to the map size.

The map reminds me of some experimental Team Fortress 2 maps that have a
small room for each flag and a...
10/09 13:45 - DustBowl by Johann Slee
15 years ago this map could interest someone. But not now.

Visual, there are only right angles and horizontally aligned textures. So the
map looks like a cut layered sponge cake.

The map is composed of two small levels (one above the other) with an ersatz of
...
10/09 13:45 - The Killing Machine by the Shib
An unofficial conversion of the famous ZTN2DM2 by
ztn for Quake 2.

Some critical words and suggestions:


The sounds of the lift are missing.
High resolution textures would look better and the do also exist
Most of us know that when one looks at a...
08/08 07:45 - Geotechnic by Phantazm11
Geotechnic by Phantazm11, is in my opinion the most beautiful Quake 3
map ever made. This mapper is known well for his maps here which have been
included into Quake Live, and this map by far even out does those maps.

The rock formation in the map is very well done, some...
08/08 07:45 - Perterbia "A snap Judgment" by B{ooDK{oTz
A very horizontal CTF map with lots of wide open empty space and textures that
reminds me of the Team Arena map Inner Sanctums (MPTEAM3), that is
Perterbia to me. It comes with a backstory, but no information as to how many
bots should be loaded with the map.

I...
08/08 07:45 - Duckhunt, Duckhunt DOOM! and Duckhunt VR by Eraser
A new version of
Entity Plus
arrived with this new Single Player experience. It is made in the same flavour
as the well known video game
Duck Hunt
from 1984 where you are sitting in grass and you have to shoot ducks flying
in the air.

This release...
17/06 13:45 - The Heinous Place by AndehX
We have yet another Quake 1-ish map. This time with high-res textures in TGA
format which makes for a pretty big download. Layout is similar to The
Place of Two Deaths (dm1) from Quake 1. Some platforms are present and it
would not be a great redux if there wasn't a trap. The...
17/06 13:45 - Block by r3x.theCat
A very simple CTF layout consisting of two large, square and open flag rooms
connected by another basic common ground. Items are pretty much all out in the
open and there is next to nowhere to hide. The outside edge is lined with lava.

The author states that the map was...
17/06 13:45 - Deck 2k7 by r3x.theCat
Deck 2k7 is a remake of the classic Unreal Tournament deathmatch level
Deck 16. The polygon count must be a pretty close match to the original
release from 1999 as there is nothing really extra in the Quake 3 release. A
few of the areas are a little different (it is a remake)...
17/06 13:45 - Endurance by flipout
Meet another masterpiece by Greg Ward (flipout).
Style and atmosphere of the map are close to Quake 4 multiplayer. There is
almost nothing from the original good old Quake 3: all the textures and models
are redesigned, but it rather brings benefits. The only thing which...
16/05 04:45 - Goldleaf by Pat Howard
Pat Howard's talent has again produced an
excellent map! Goldleaf is a visually combination of futuristic tech and
Ancient Rome elements including the Roman number showing year of Quake 3 release
- 1999. Using Evil Lair's
evil8 texture set with some custom assets, like...
16/05 04:45 - No One by r3x.theCat
A very nicely detailed map. r3x says that designed for CPMA gameplay and you
can really tell by the layout. It is a simplified version of the CPMA classic
Wicked by
FxR|jude, which was also remixed as
Wicked (cpm1a) by
FxR|jude and Decker.

Lighting is...
16/05 04:45 - Kora by Rota
Welcome back Rota. This release is really great and
fun to play. The first thing that impressed me was the visual style. Reminds me
of some abandoned industry facility. Dirty metal surfaces and plenty of
rusty-brown pieces of steel awakes some kind of good feeling in me.
...
16/05 04:45 - Cosmic Cathedral by BLOOD
This is BLOOD's first map, but you may not know it
judging from the intricate, carefully made architecture in the level. 8 players
in the Free-For-All gametype is what the readme suggests, but I can see this
map housing Team Deathmatch or Tourney matches.

First...
16/05 04:45 - q3sg1a, q3sg1b, q3sg1c by Camel-XP
This release contains three maps packed in one pk3. Each map has it's own
construction but the theme is always the same. If you ever watched TV series
Stargate,
you will immediately recognize the main influence of the pack.

Camel has been working on a large project...
16/04 13:45 - Bloodrust by Scummy
Visually, there is heaps going on here. The setting is a Sci-Fi processing
plant of some kind with enough occupational health and safety issues to cause
even the most conservative worker concern. There are bright green goo pipes
everywhere. Open, unlocked computer terminals in...
16/04 13:45 - Tokay's Towers by V1979
Another conversion from V1979. This time it is the Quake 2 classic
Tourney and DM map Tokay's Towers (q2dm2). Quake 3 Tourney, DM
and Team DM game modes are supported.

To be completely honest, this is one of the least interesting re-makes
I've seen. The lighting,...
16/04 13:45 - Carnage grounds by *ZeRo*
Carnage grounds takes place in the Ancient Rome period with classical
forms for buildings, accompanied by lava-falls, lava rivers and a lava pool.
Greek/Roman bots love, and I mean LOVE lava. They love it so much, they
want to embrace it! Clearly, Prometheus made a mistake by...
16/04 13:45 - The Double Edge 1 by V1979
A Quake 3 CTF version of the classic Quake 2 DM map The Edge
(q2dm1). Team DM and DM game modes are also supported.

The layout consist of two version of the map joined together at the
outside area where the water to the Rail Gun is. The Flag is
located on the narrow...
14/03 06:45 - blooddm2 by BLOOD
Some very nice brush work and layout in a mid-sized DM map. Angled walls and
lots of little ledges all over the place make for interest path options that
will shake-up the game play a lot. There are also a lot of possible Rocket-Jump
locations - way too many to list.
