I see your new at mapping. Just keep practising and you will get there eventually. This is how i started mapping. Missing textures, sounds etc.. But after a few weeks you start getting used to it and you will start getting maps with loads of downloads like me!.

It took a while for you to write back. But yes, you can definitely see what I'm talking about.

He did make another map called "loony bin". You may have seen that one too. It really is no talent at its worst.

Ugh - I just checked out that other map named "Random" from that other site, and yes, there are missing textures, I guess they're from other custom maps.

@GuitarMan: You can download it from www.map-factory.org/quake-3 The site is Called "Map factory. The crappy map I was talking about with the toilet and sewers is called "Random" by jojobrough@hotmail.com. Just scroll through its list you'll find the map eventually.

@TheMuffinMan: As a matter of fact, IT DID. For me at least. textures were missing for the giant toilet, sewers, And the gravestones in front of the church. You may not have the same problem but whenever I tried it those Textures were missing.

Ok ok, I used q3map2 to decompile the bsp, fixed it up, put fresh textures on, did some item placement changes, spawn changes, and more. I emailed it to Tig and hopefully should be on the queue soon. It's call Random 2 (aka rg2). :)

ok ok ok i got the problem... he see 'em but he really have in some ways 'em in a different folders for some odd and vicious ways O.o
i''ve opened the .bsp file (I know, that's LMAO xD) with notepad and i've found this:

i've highlighted the textures we've in common; I don't know WTF he've quake 3 textures (texture/shader names exists but win users don't have the directory with that "original_q3ts/" fkng name O.o) in a sub folder for some ways and he've even textures that if the directory matches the name won't match like "textures/sfx/flame1side"
There are 3 possibilities: the first you're computer, even if it's a Mac, it's possessed.
The second: .lvl world should make a MAC section xD
The Third: you made those textures cause a lot of 'em does not exists in Q3A :)

Gooball; seems strange to me that the folder where the textures inside of pak0.pk3 are different cause you won't be able to play online; if you load a map the game will load the same map for you and for everyone; if you don't have something, it it tries to download the parts you're missing like textures, for example, from the server.
so I hope you'll understand that is impossible they're Q3A original textures :S I think that those are textures that you made, if you make something new you need to put it in the map pack with the same folder tree or it won't work :S

Yes, but you did not include the textures in the PK3 - so how would we see them? This is what you included in the PK3 (which is only a zip file renamed from .zip to .pk3)

- levelshots/rg.png
- maps/rg.aas
- maps/rg.bsp
- music/gms_juice.wav
- scripts/rg.arena

Where are the textures? Should we come over to your place to see them and play the map?

Gooball, not to nag but next time you put textures on, PLEASE make sure they are original textures so we can see them! Also I was trying to get my first map to work, I pretty much given up on it. I found GTK Radiant to be really difficult to master and thus I was unable to get it working. So I probably wont be mapping at all. =(

There MAY be a chance but not really anytime soon. Ive moved on to something simpler. Like mapping on Doom.

@Incognito I use

For Packing Pk3's: iPak 3

For Opening Pk3's: Stuffit Expander

I'll try Pakskape.

PS: Maybe we should talk about this in LVL forums.

Oh Mac....:).....well i did click on the Macintosh link on the quake3world links and the PaKScape utility also show up.
Not sure if it will work. If it works just use it to open any custom map and you can see how the folders are organised.

If thats so then what kind of map is supposed to be uploaded here? Are experimental type maps tolerable? Because I find gothic type and arena style maps rather boring. Again, no offence.

ANYWAY this map could have come with its textures.

I was in a bit of a mood when I posted that, but I'd still recommend to try and post a beta somewhere on a level design forum so people can suggest improvements and tell you about issues like the missing textures before uploading/releasing your next map. Q3W is a good place to do that.

To be sure you don't have missing textures I'd recommend to have a 2nd clean Quake 3 Arena installation (no custom pk3s, mapmedia.pk3 and no content in baseq3/* subdirectories) somewhere. You could also use q3min.org/ for that. Before release, drop your pk3 in there and fire up the map. Open the console and look for error messages, it will report a line for every texture that is missing. You could also use tools like mapcker (quakewiki.net/archives/equim/) that automatically grab the required textures and put them in the pk3.

Happy mapping.

This is exactly the kind of map that you should NOT upload to LvL. I'd even consider removing it so people learn that this website is not a dump.

Don't get me wrong: there's absolutely nothing wrong with being a beginner, not even with making crappy maps. People are free to make 1000s of bad maps, fine with me. But why upload them here?

0/10. Again.

The irony is that in the readme he states that he fixed the texture issue that was present in his previous release. That evidently isn't the case. The review was spot-on.

Gooball, once again - before releasing a map, run it in a fresh installation of Q3 without any other add-on content. If it displays all the textures, then you're good to go.

The map itself is a slight improvement over Place of Odd, but that's not much of a benchmark to set. Those pointy things can get you stuck, the weapon placement is bad (not quite as bad as Place of Odd, but still bad), there's weird clipping around the center of the arena by the teleporter destination, and once again you've whored the BFG ammo which is really unnecessary. Other than that, it does seem that you've improved a bit as far as your general level design skills go. 3/10 for effort
