Scorpion Tank, I think you're talking about sst13, right? His maps are pretty much the same as you describe them.

i remember some guy having 13 in his name which converted Q1 maps to Q3 very nicely. all his maps started with 13 (something like 13base) and they were very good. this guy should do more of his map, i don't remember a new release since 2011. i think his last map was iron hive.

It's a classic. Doesn't remind me of the original dm2, because of all this colored lighting. But the gameplay is as good as the original's. If not better.

e1m2 is called Castle of the Damned, and is a class map, esp. for teamplay. It's also the map where Thresh played 'the ferrari game' afaik. </anorak>

q1dm4 is already out on fileplanet and various other places. This website should be posting a review of it sometime in the near future (fingers crossed).

What is q1e1m2??? (The name of the map I mean.)

Hey Chummers, still concerned about that missing texture? I downloaded yesterday the Threewave maps and the texture appeared suddenly! Maybe it's like in Japanes Castles, there you needed again Threewave for all textures.

I like this map. As far as the bots being stupid about the floor w/ the lava , I have played against people that were easy to dunk also. I enjoyed killing them there as well.

The missing texture is what bothers me the most.Too bad , my eye is drawn to these points and I cant help it.Thanks Mike for the level

Theres an easy way to make that jump, just jump into the back wall, and rocket jump off it, gets ya round the corner easily.As for the map, great conversion, some very nice texturing, even tho it is a bit too dark on mycomp, but as author said, he has his gamma up high so u cant really critize for that.

Hey nice conversion. I playtested it and found can do the "round the corner" jump. Tho not too easily. If anyone wants a demo of this ill send them one. Also I found the level wasnt dark at all! You guys must have you gamma at like 0.7 :) A review will be up later on my site...

Aside from Ian Marks conversion (shiz_q1dm4 - using original textures & lighting) this is the best conversion of DM4 I've seen so far. Yes, there are gameplay issues that need to be dealt with because of Q3's physics, but compared to other conversions I haven't seen a better one out there myself.

As far as the "missing texture" is concerned - it's something I've known about but there's nothing I can do about it because the texture everyone sees replaced with a grid is one that ships with the game! I'm at a loss to explain this.

As far as darkness is concerned, I've seen screenshots that are from other peoples computers and yes, they're dark. But when it looks fine on mine and many other peoples computers - what am I supposed to do? Make two versions of the map? :oP

As the old adage goes:

"Can't make everyone happy."

I'm still trying to figure out what language"niggus"comes from{Dino}and how it's supposed to be pronounced...LOL...anyway,can someone please stop making a conversion of this over-hyped map?Yeah it's a little cool and all but mostly boring with thin hallways,dull architecture,colors and does have a good flow to it though{in my experience}

As weird as it may sound, I prefered Shiz's conversion with the original textures. I don't know why but some textures are clearly missing in my game. I get some empy squares at eye-level around every corner and I can't explain it. I really love the Jesus statue as opposed to teh old texture though, but the map is so dark that you can barely see it until you're directly under it. Nice touch with the teleporters. That's a features that's not used enough in custom maps and it looks killer! Anyways, a bit brighter, some fixed textures and a spotlight on Jesus and this map would rock, but as it stands I prefer Shiz's map.

You can always leave a hole in the crusher for the armor. Sort of an inverted U shape.

The jump across the lava to MH/RA in Quake 1 was easy - it's quite possible to do it as a straight, unmodified, running jump, and of course very straightforward with a curve or strafe jump.

YA being pushed out - i think you could have fudged it with a combination of _trans textures and clip brushes (maybe nodrop brushes?). Could of heald the squasher back a bit too. This is just of the top of my head, so it may not work at all :]

The around the corner jump is a clear sign of the difference between quake and Q3A air control - nothing you could do without rebuilding that whole section

The jump to RA/100h can also be made easy from the pipe (also can be done in dm2) I think the jump distance is 265 map units in Q3A, I would be guessing quakes, but i do know that that jump was about the limit. The lava jump to switch in dm1 was another border line distance too (which is an easy jump in q3q1dm1).

To me its these little things that make a big difference in the end. :]

In defense of the map - during construction, one of my testers did inform me that he could strafe-jump to the RA and 100h. We tried to get around this by shortening the ledge that they both rest on, but without heavily restucturing the map, there's was nothing I could do.

As far as the "around the corner jump" - I intentionally took that out. I wasn't aware that was a "problem" with other DM2 conversions!

As far as the YA being "pushed" out of the map (another problem I was aware of prior to release and probably should've said something in the readme.txt) is there really any way around that? I thought it was an engine bug or something. I'll look into it.

Personally, I thought it was one of the better conversions. Although the "most faithful" conversion title should probably go to Ian Marks.
