The octopus looks good in the map. I like how you can choose what colour the textures are and make your own theme.

Haha... awesome re-make of q3dm17. I love the design, on my old hardware it would be cool to have a version that is a bit toned down, i.e. no octopus, and the cell-shading "edges" turned off. Then the map should run quite well plus look cool :)

This would have to be one of the best modifications to q3dm17 I have ever seen. Pity you can't run around on our mollusc friend.

WTF? What is the point of having a sentient space octopus overseeing proceedings if you cant land on it? Surfaces are way too rubbery making it the mapping equivalent of the icecream sticks "Bubble-O-Bill." Bots play it really well but be prepared to compensate your aim, it was hard to score a direct hit inspite of players being inside the cross hairs. The rubbery texture made for effective jump pads though. Look out! Here comes Peach and Toad on the final straight! Sickly Sweet. The Maximus Map is living proof that sometimes 2 heads are better than 1...

too bad this wasnt an original map. i would like too applaud LordSquart for this cool and rather hilarious remake of the longest yard. thats the reason for the 10/10. never seen anything quite as creative. he even offers various color themes. keep in mind that you wont be able to play it just by putting in the map file. youll need to use the link provided by the main comment in order to dload one of the color themes. make sure that file goes in the baseq3 folder with the map file or else it wont work. i believe the colors are red, yellow, green, blue, and pink, but there may be a few more. great map. if anyone makes a ORIGINAL map with this theme, i would pay them. nice idea, and its rather hilarious as i said before, because you rarely expect to see an octopus with funny little eyes in a game whos sole objective is killing. good ideas and good design. brushwork is rather simple and monotonous, but nothing else will do with such a funny map. good job.

Not much of the acid really...

I dont like it being dm17 clone, but the geometry is cool.

Kida very unoriginal original map: yetanother dm17 but with imaginative visuals.

Well, I'm able to run the map on my machine. If I can, then most of you shouldn't have a problem.

Mr. Squart, great idea and brilliant construction. Really gets the player involved by allowing them to make color schemes of their own.

My System,

Performance 500 Pentium 3 500mhz overclocked to 799.
GeForce Ti 4200 128M
IBM Deskstar 7200 rpm 20 gig HD,
Maxtor Diamondmax 7200 30 gig HD with 4mb buffer

Good map...I love the cel shading.Where in the world did you get the idea for this?Very refreshing to see someone go above and beyond the ID texture set(BORING).9 for creativitly alone.

Bots do suck,as something else stated, and leave plenty of oppertunity to tear them to shreads.

Get another creative idea,make bots play better,increase the fps a bit for people with slower systems and people will love you.

@lightning hunter

I dunno what your problem is...

I have athlon XP1900+(1.6ghz) 384 2100drr and a SiS 315 64mb grfx card(yeah...I'm waiting for prices on rad9500 to fall) and I never got under 30fps on this.I think your CPU is limiting your graphics card.2.0ghz+ should be much much better.Oh, and if you are using AA and AF, turn them off.5200FXs are horrible when it comes to that.

It is so refreshing playing this map. It brings new life to the already great q3dm17. Absolutely true to DM17 and beautiful in a unique way.

Actually, Jax has said what I thought about the map looking like something by quint. Well worth having for the aesthetics.

I grabbed this one back when it was first released. Very, very cool looking map. Reminds me a lot of quint's q-dolphin map with the use of all the curves. You've always loved your curves haven't you LS? ;)

Anyway, the map looks great but I am not sure how it plays as I just strolled around and checked out all of the cool looking structure.

Frames were on the low side (of course) but wasn't laggy at all for me on a 2.0 GHz, 1 gig PC2700 ram & gf4 ti-4200 64 mb.

8/10 from me for aesthetics alone.

L8R!

My game was very laggy, and sounds would repeat a few times everytime I fired a weapon in this map. I have a 1.3 ghz, GeforceFX 5200 Ultra, Pentium 4, 384mb of RAM. Any one else get lag this bad? It was completely unplayable.

Tried the red version because it looked neat to me, and I love it. The gameplay is changed a bit from q3dm17 because things are resized, e.g. the rail platform is a bit larger while the quad platform is a fair bit smaller (which eliminates camping up there! a good thing). You cannot give it points for gameplay really, since it isn't LordSquart's own layout, but it sure gets points for all OTHER sorts of originality. Happily, the Octopus is clipped so that it doesn't get in the way, and I never got "stuck" without dying in the pit of death (though I don't doubt that this ocasionally happens).

My issue: Bots suck. Well, at least compared to q3dm17, which you could normally say is understandable, except this "is" q3dm17. (On hurt me plenty with 3 bots, I had 30 frags and second place bot had 2. They'd have at least 10 in dm17, I'm not all that good.)

P.S. 8/10, btw

Not very playable because of fps issues, but certainly worth the dl for the aesthetics alone. Very well done map.

yes i found this nasty bugs too much later (tip:use /kill command in the console when it happen), i hate to see this bad bugs in my maps, tested this map a lot of times and tryied to fix everything ... it was a nightmare :D

And about the FPS, i know about this .. it is an experimental map sorry about that...

anyway thanks for this great reaview from tig himself :)

keep up the good work everytime ...

Quite a nice change and good twist to this ever so famous level.

FPS isn't so good.

I don't have a fancy video card...normaly this type map shows 50 to 60 fps on my meter.

This map runs about 6.

I fell off the platform and ended up running around the bottom of the skybox. Bot's did the same thing a few times.

Somtimes you die, somtimes you don't....and get stuck down there.
