Last update on 2015-05-28 at 13:45
 
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...
16/05 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...
16/04 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 - 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 - 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.
...
14/03 06:45 - Agony CTF by sst13
This is what a conversion is all about. The original level was Agony
designed for the Nintendo 64 as a
Split-Screen DM map in 1999.
The level was then re-worked and released as part of the Exclusive Dreamcast Deathmatch maps
for the Sega Dreamcast port of Quake 3.
...
14/03 06:45 - The Deepest Void by V1979
4 slightly different remixed CTF versions of the Q3A original space DM level
Apocalypse Void (q3dm19). The construction is solid, but then again
there is not much to it. It is a direct copy of the original theme and textures
except for the inclusion of red and blue colouring....
14/03 06:45 - Space Vortex by V1979
A slightly remixed version of the Team Arena space map Vortex Portal
(mpteam6) for standard Quake 3 game modes - DM, Team DM and CTF.

The main difference from the original release is the removal of the worm
hole tunnels. Interestingly this simple change alters the game...
22/01 06:45 - The Double Camping Grounds by V1979
Take the id Software original map, The Camping Grounds (q3dm6) and
duplicate it. Now join the two versions together. Repeat these actions but join
the maps in a different way until you have four combinations. Change the
entities and make the maps CTF. This is what you have here....
22/01 06:45 - Mech by r3x.theCat
At start-up this map looks good.
OK, there is a missing texture...
Ah, there is no bot-file.
But it has a nice tech atmosphere.The mapper, r3x.theCat shows an eye fordetail, the theme spreads through the whole map and it all looks very finished.There is a good choice of textures...
22/01 06:45 - The Edge (2) by V1979
A pure conversion of The Edge (q2dm1). As stated in the readme.txt. And
I have to agree this is as close as you get with a conversion tool as q2toq3a.
V1979 did not simply run the tool and left it at
that. No, the leaks are fixed, textures replaced with better quality and the...
02/12 12:45 - No Man's Land (2) by tekros
One of the best things about Quake 3 is the ability to mod the game and
create assets such as custom maps and models. This empowering of the
creative genius inside people does not always produce amazing results.

After reviewing Quake 3 maps for almost 15 years now, I have...
02/12 12:45 - Rustgrad by Hipshot
Hipshot has once again produced an
outstanding release. The architecture and theme is that of an abandoned
facility. It is medium sized and perfectly fits with 3 to 6 players.
Free For All and Team Deathmatch are officially supported, however it can
be played also as...
02/12 12:45 - Sector 9 "The Cytherean Outpost" by Kaustic
Originally built for the "Summer 2013 Mapping Competition" by Maverick
Servers - and won 1st place. I believe this version to be slightly
different (but this maybe wrong).

The map is both enjoyable and interesting, but to be very honest I am
surprised it won. The...
02/12 12:45 - Arena Gates by V1979
Another CTF remix by V1979. This time the
target is Arena Gate (q3dm1). Like the
authors conversion of q3dm7, this one
comes with different variants of remix, but four versions instead of
just two for q3dm7.

The first map has converted the outdoor area to the...
12/10 10:45 - Faces of Quake by r3x.theCat
A remake of the Unreal Tournament map, Faces. The readme states that the map
was designed for CPMA or VQ3 (standard) gameplay. I plays tested in vanilla Q3.

When I first spawned I noticed two massive towers on opposite ends of a
floating, rocky, wasteland area. The...
12/10 10:45 - The Longest Fall by r3x.theCat
Here we have yet another CTF remake of Q3DM17. It is basically two
Q3DM17s, with one mirrored and connected via the railgun platform.

The railgun platform, now the center of the map has become home to two BFGs and
a quad damage. There are also two launchpads on either...
12/10 10:45 - Q3 Stargate pack source by Camel-XP
This is a developers pack and example release. Included is an example map file
and all that is needed to see how to replicate the Stargate teleporters from the
TV series Stargate.

You can also see working examples in
Camelot Castle / Sahra Catacombs by
...
12/10 10:45 - McSarge's by cityy
Rustic, twisting hallways that look like they have been patched and repaired
over their entire life. An environment so richly detailed it is hard to believe
it is software technology that is almost 15 years old pushing polygons to your
monitor.

This is what happens...
12/10 10:45 - Day At The Villa by Kaustic
A small Mediterranean themed map. The gameplay is pretty good, but could be
better. You may find yourself playing for much longer than you realised. The
visuals however are a little lacking. Brush work is simple and blocky with large
steps, flat walls very little integration...
30/08 03:10 - Temples of Retribution by V1979
This release is consists of two maps, both a CTF redux of Temple of
Retribution (q3dm7). These two maps share a lot of the original, but
the first version is larger and is a more complete copy than the second.

Although the author has added support for FFA and TDM, this is...
30/08 03:10 - The Very End of Reality by V1979
Here we have a nice looking and somewhat well played map. It is a remake
of the classic Quake 3 map, The Very End of You (q3tourney6). The
main difference from the original is the whole map is
symmetrical. There are the two flag bases opposite from each other, not
unlike...
30/08 03:10 - The Yard Of Stone And Steel by Anthony Tullo
Another modified version of The Longest Yard (q3dm17) - of the worse
kind. Graphics are dull and blunt though the frame rate drops in the lower
areas. Gameplay has decreased in fun over the original as the openness and
jumpiness of the level is damaged.

Fun for a...
30/08 03:10 - Ironwood by Pat Howard
Ironwood is a small, Medieval themed CTF map that has been nicely
textured. With more than six players the gameplay is very chaotic. It is
recommended that you play only with the suggested amount.

From the readme, this map's theme is a medieval castle in the mountains...
31/07 14:00 - Lost Space by T-kölök
Tigs important note: This map will produce texture errors in other
maps. This is because the author has included (and possibly edited)
shader files from the original game. This is always the wrong thing to do. If
you download this map, please remove it or change the PK3 file...
