The only disappointment I have is this is the only map you created Noruen.

@SW12, Tig's demo shows only the Fountain of Youth secret. That i have discovered. I'm asking about the BFG secret that i can't find:/

WOW, just wow:) Very impressive map (skybox,textures, almost everything!). The teleport "wormhole" is a nice touch to the gameplay:) The only thing that bugs me are the secrets, found 2 of 3 (the Fountain and "credits chamber"), but can't find nowhere the BFG secret:( also the labyrinth is quite frustrating, good for Single player games, but not for multiplayer games.
PS: Is there still a active DEMO, where i can find the secret BFG? @gooball60 link is dead:(

Thank you very much Gooball for finding the secret! Damn, I've been shooting to the sky all around, but never on that angle.
@SW12: did you get it to work? If not, then on the Q3 console try the following command: /sv_pure 0 and after that run the demo.

@SW12: The download for Gooball's demo has already been added to the bottom of the review. I'm not encoding the demo as a video - just linking to the demo. If you are still having issues viewing the demo, post some details about the issue and lets see if we can all work out what is going wrong.

OK, I had no problems here on WinXP, with ioquake3. The demo is called 'demo0015.dm_68' in the menu system, maybe you already have one with that name? You can just rename the files BTW.
That is one pretty hard secret to find too.

gooball said he used a mac not windows, which is what I use. So does this have something to do with it?

@SW12: In your baseq3 folder, make a 'demos' folder and place the *.dm_68 file (from inside the zip) into that folder. You should then be able to see the demo on the Q3A menu system.

Are you on mac or windows? If you are on mac, go to <computername>/Library/Application Support/Quake3/baseq3/demos/ (if you dont have a demos folder you can make one) Sorry I don't know how to do it on Windows. Try Google.

Wow, great findings! :)
That door underneath is intriguing, I guess that's the way to the Fountain.
I think it's got something to do with the message written around there, behind the middle portal, "The fire sent to the sky under arch with rune on the side will open the gate. Hit the mountain high if you want to wake the guide". :o

RE: the secrets:
I found them by doing the /noclip thing; first one (from my previous post) was The Fountain of Youth. Then I found the other two (The Gun of Power Tomb and The Labyrinth) the same way, as I couldn't find a "legal" way to get to them. I've found the "S" rune and even found the message written behind one of the portals, but looks like I'm doing it wrong, because nothing happens. I even shoot the rune inside the base and hear a door that opens, but all I found later was a hole on a wall with a teleporter around the corner, but it takes me to somewhere else on the map, not to a secret. :(

Thanks for review GuitarMan :) And to all of you for your comments I really appreciate it!
GuitarMan: There are three secret areas, or "secrets". But two of them is very hard to reach. Just look for the "S" rune :)

You know what the landscape reminds me of? The final mission in Dawn Of War. With the charred landscape and all. I wonder what planet that is...

A real work of art. The eery atmosphere is incredible, although looks a little bland in places. Not sure about the gameplay as I haven't played it enough, but it should be the typical slowish terrain map style gameplay which isn't necessarily a bad thing. 9.5/10 from me

Strangely enough, this one has been sitting on the map queue for quite a long time without getting reviewed. I wonder why, 'cause it's outstanding. Design is superb without eating up more resources than needed, I cannot stress this enough, as for me that's the point that makes great designers stand out from the rest. And of course, I loved the whole sci-fi set-up.
I'll keep an eye on this guy's work, that's for sure.
