Very nice map, particularly the FFA version (it's too big for tourney imo). Well connected, with horizontal and vertical action. The sky box is very nice. You can see the mountains through the windows.

Is this based on QUAKE3Stuff By Senn, or is it the other way around? Anyway, i like snow themes. Escpecially in this time of year.

It sure is a lot of fun. Great weaponplacement and many possibilitys for some surprises around the corner or behind a teleporter.

Hi Przemek! Glad to hear that you and the crew in Poland are enjoying my latest release.

Thanks for the review VanZeR. I'm a little surprised that it turned out to play fairly well in both modes myself.

Thanks for the comments Clowny-boy and Xixung ;)

Baron of Beef: 8-10 player load sounds like mayhem for sure. Glad you're enjoying it and thanks for the comments.

L8R!

Definitely a keeper and we have been thrashing it in FFA for the last week or so. Love the bedlam downstairs in 8-10 player mode, with calmer 1 on 1 upstairs. The rocket/yellow armour/megahealth/bedlam rotation is one of the best map bits we have seen. Great map.

Thanks for the positive comments. There will be some that don't like it as there is with anything. Can't please everyone }:)

Initially, I just wanted to build a small FFA map but decided that the size of the map would make for a decent Tourney level. Because vanilla Q3 spawns the weapons so quickly (every 5 secs) I increased them to 15 secs for the Tourney version and placed the RG on the double jump ledge. So, I'm really glad to hear that it plays well in both modes.

Unfortunately, I received an email the other day stating that there is an exploit in the map. I haven't found it yet but supposidly a player can get behind a curve somewhere in the map and kill without being killed. Damn! Wish I would have found this before release. Oh well, sh!t happens.

Yeah nitin, lighting is probably a little excessive in places for some people but I think that helps to give it a little bit of a "colder" feel. Not only that but so many people play with different gammas and configs that it is extremely hard to get it just right for everyone. Looks pretty good on my machine though...hehe

<|3FG20K>: Huh? I didn't put any arches in the map :P };)

L8R!

A very good map. I think the amount of curves is excessive, but that's just me. The layout is very intricate, which is a good thing, and the railgun placement is a nice touch to providing more connectivity to the plasma area. This map has a solid foundation. 9/10

very versatile map, plays fantastic as ffa, and tourney. Gameplay and aesthetics are awesome. Great work by jax, as always. This is one of those 'must have' maps.

Great playing map for both tourney and ffa. gameplay is fast and flowing even during one on ones thanks to the smart placement of teleporters and jumppads. weapons? ya it's got those too, and not scattered about like other maps of lesser quality. GG Jax_Gator! another ace map. download it now.
