01/04 03:20 - Battlezone by Tigger-oN
A high realism, small level with a focus on fast game play. Suits a 2 to 4 player DM and 2vs2 Team DM games, but Tourney matches are also a blast.

The level of detail is way beyond anything you would have seen in any other map. It is a shame the environment is relativity small,...

cs_assault for Quake 3 is a compact DeathMatch arena wrapped in

13/02 05:20 - The Grit Halls by Rust7
The Grit Halls (r7dm1) is a rather nice-looking map that makes
use of simple textures. A medium-sized map with a good flow to it. Best
for 4-8 player FFA, but is also perfectly fine for Tourney as well.

The item placement is well-balanced; the MH - accessible only by...
05/01 03:55 - Pitbull by fKd
For a medium-small arena, this is quite an intriguing map. Created by
the famous mapmaker fKd,
who was made popular for his amazing maps such as
Null and Void and
Undergod, he says in
the file's readme that this map's simple stuff... nothing too
fancy.

An older CTF map, created in 2009 and sat for over 430 days on the

128 megs or less, which was meant as a joke since this map is pretty
small to have more than 128 megs set up.

The map is pretty much a box map, which is...

I must say, this is one hell of a map! Hopefully, the multiple

Throughout this map, the complicated yet highly detailed
passageways and paths wind through this...
17/10 01:55 - Cloister of Unnamed Colony by Rust7
According to the readme this should be a long abandoned cloister, which has

etc.

And here comes a massive...
17/10 01:55 - Railgun Arena by Arcan
The name does not match the pk3 name but this did not prevented me to fire up

of this map is Railgun Arena and it is a huge box mostly with water on the
bottom. There are loooong ramps on...
17/10 01:55 - cu3dm1a by cuirass
This (possibly) Mayan-themed map is quite fine. Although there is not much
complexity in the brushes, several things like the leaves hanging from the
beams create a very nice atmosphere. What I've found a little bit too much is
the brick wall texture. In some rooms like in the...
17/10 01:55 - The Courtyard (V2) by Martinus
First of all, I'd say I had troubles with Hunk memory allocation. Set to 1024
and map runs fine. This info is missing from the readme file or the author
simply never noticed the issue.

The theme of the level is that of a futuristic city with heavy castle
influence....
05/09 04:45 - My Real Home ++ Super Edition by Rust7
Instead of the cliche giant maps

house in a cartoonish world where the players are not size of an ant or even a
mouse, but rather the size of a cat.

Combat can get very hairy in a map...

First off, the level is riddled with traps to make it more interesting. If you...
05/09 04:45 - The Ancient Place by Kaustic

map. Various posters, including those of real life movies line the...

The author of this map mentions that it was his first ever release for

collection of random ideas that are mostly just poorly executed. The map
shows many technical issues like double doors that are not linked,...

13/07 13:40 - Shivers by nyoshk
Shivers is constructed with a vertical column layout with some areas
that extrude from it. The geometry is somewhat complex in the sense that
you are jumping from walkways to platforms. You have to watch your step
in this map because you will find yourself falling down a lot and...
29/05 01:40 - Solar - AEon's Edit by Hipshot and AEon
First thing I realized when I entered the map is that it looks really
nice. Good textures, details everywhere, custom shaders. The custom
jumpads with fan and wind effect and the teleporter which is water
flowing from a pipe are a nice touch.

The place looks like...
28/05 13:40 - q3Q1pak1 - q3Death, q3Adler, q3Damned by Insane Kid
A pack that contains three re-makes of Quake maps. The originals are
"Place of Two Deaths" (DM1) and "Castle of the Damned" (E1M2) from the
original release by id Software. The third map in the pack is a custom
release that I was unfamiliar with called "Schloss Adler" by...
28/05 13:40 - Europa Station by Kaustic
The aesthetic of this map is very simple, but it shows the author's
respect for the texture pack that he used. Throughout the map, textures
are used consistently in a way that highlights the atmosphere that the
artist meant to achieve through releasing this texture pack. The...
18/04 07:40 - Opposing Forces by Gooball
This CTF map is made by a work-in-progress mapmaker, gooball. A center room
contains the Quad, a RL, some armor shards and a couple of ammo and health items.
There are branches off this main room to the two flag rooms. Each side contains a MG, an SG, a PG, a
YA and more health...
18/04 07:40 - OrangeTown by Rust7
For those of you who know of Rust7,
he is quite the DeFRaG
artist. His maps
have been widely used throughout the defragging community. When it comes to his
actual arenas, however, that's a different story. OrangeTown is a small chapter
of that story, for that is what...
18/04 07:40 - Vinyl Room by KRAFTWERK2K1
You appear to be size for a small mouse in a big bedroom, with a couch, a record player and a
giant boombox. The only light source is a huge skylight in the ceiling and some
wall lights. Sadly, there are also a few missing textures which spoils the visuals.


I found...
18/04 07:40 - Under Water by T-kölök
The overall theme and idea of this release is strong - an underwater base of
some kind. The layout is also working well. Sadly, that is about all however.

Technically, the map is a "boxed" map. This means entire level is drawn on
each frame which in turn leads to lag at a...
05/03 06:40 - Opposing Teams by CZghost
Opposing Teams is a Team Arena redux of PaN61's
Opposing Force. Before
reviewing this map, I decided to play around with the original so I could get
myself acquainted. After playing both, I must say that CZGhost did a groovy job
of converting it for Team Arena.
...
05/03 06:40 - Dual Cores by dONKEY
This CTF level was made as an entry for the
Maverick Servers Mapping Competition 4
by dONKEY. The judges awarded
the map 4th place. I must say this map is visually really nice.

The map has mostly positives and a few negatives. Rich details is a huge plus
but...
05/03 06:40 - The Lost Yard by sst13
A Quake style re-make of the classic Q3DM17 level.

Love it or hate it, Q3DM17 is arguably Quake 3's most defining map. Over the
years the community has been exposed to more
re-makes
and re-boots of this map than perhaps any other stock Q3 level. Many of these
