More than 2 years on, and I should have voted for it ages ago, but what the hell... a 10, and not because Im remixing it, but because its one of my fave maps of all time:-))

This could become a classic 1v1 map--that's where its tactical bouquet can really be smelt. Will be playin' this with my buds for a long while. If this level was dressed up with better visuals, would be a top-tier killing zone.

You suck fuck. This map is great for 1v1 or 3 person FFA.

Pretty good... a little bland but otherwise having good flow and excellent connectivity. Some of the textures could have been a little nicer/more varied, but a decent map overall.

cool . . . thanx for fixing the floor :-) The more I play this map, the more I like it. I think it's in the top Q3 maps out there (at least for 1v1). I especially like the light patterns that the lava makes through the grilled floor--nice. 8 out of 10.

If you haven't already, also check out Q3jdm8a by Fxrjude, he's given the addie down below. It rocks also, probably even more so than Q3jdm9, IMO.

I played this map a bit and I have to say it is pretty good.

I thought that the texturing was a bit drab, but the layout was cool and I liked the fact that it is fairly vertical and not flat. Only other thing that kind of bothered me..and this is a style/personal choice issue...was that some of the walkways and platforms seemed too thin.

Overall pretty good map..and I look forward to see what else jude has up his sleeve.. :)

Ok, i admit it, I'm a small map 1-on-1 freak! So of course I love this map! It may be a bit plain but I really like the fast gameplay.

Thanks again for the comments :)

pjw - you were right, i actually had two areas where you could sink throught the floor and fall out of the map, but i only fixed one (the one i thought you were referring to). URL of the (definately) fixed version is fxr.qgl.org/jude/q3jdm9.zip

oh yeah, run this map in lightmap.. lightmap looks 50 times better than vertex. pity it's so slow :/ Map definately plays better in duel... i played it in FFA.. not as good as i would have hoped.

And for those people who had a look at q3jdm8 recently, iv'e also re-done that with most (if not all) the suggestions people had.


for the aussies out there, there's a server with these maps on rotation thanks to QGL - :)

This map is reminiscent of many styles of gameplay, I find it perfect for tense 'must hit' rail fighting and also very important use of the shaft and rl is needed, I thought the item placement was good perhaps some more shards or the like but its a nice balance, not overdone such as wacking a Red Armor here and wacking a Mega there like Ztn's beatbox.

Visually this map is impressive, with very nice lighting and good running speeds suprising lacking curves but this isn't really an issue. With a little more refinement I think a definite stayer as a tourney map, this map has great potential!

I haven't downloaded it yet, but as I can see on the screenshot the map has a pretty good architecture and lighting. I think it can be a pretty good duel map but for ffa I think it sucks, because there aint a lot of space to walk on and I don't see a lot of items in the mid-field. It's a very good map, FxR|jude go on with map-making!

I agree guys. This map has to grow on you. Some might not like it but I suggest giving it a try first. It's not perfect but it's real close.

I don't mind the map at all, when I first played it, a while back, something seemed a bit strange ( just not familiar with the layout I guess) but after a while I began to enjoy it. The map looks good enough, I get a good game out of it with the Bot's. Sure it's not as good as some, but it's a lot better than some to. I decided to keep it, so, to me it's better than all those maps I deleted. Like the jump pad where you get three choices of landinds.

I actually think this map is very cool and has a really different feel from most of the Q3A maps out there. I would probably rate it as a 7 or 8, except that it's possible to fall completely out of the map in the corner by the grenade launcher.

I e-mailed the author re: this problem and was told "Oh, you must have dl'ed it right before I fixed that, try again." but alas, it's still there. It's a very fun map to play . . . PLEASE FIX THE FRIKKING HOLE IN THE FLOOR!! :-)

You were way too hard on this map man. The item placement is a bit off but other than that, the map completely ownz. It is also really fun to play on, and looks beautiful in lightmap mode, which are two very big +'s. With a little item placment re-work, this map could very well be a long lasting map. Its hella better than all the id tourney maps, thats for sure.
