This map does seem confusing despite having colored arrows and whatnot. Even after a few games I get confused at where I'm going.

I can't remember if there were any item placement changes; I haven't played QL in a while either. From what I recall though, most Q3->QL map ports don't affect the items too much, if at all - just visual touchups if needed.

@EmeraldTiger. Not been on QL is a very long time. Do you know if they changed any of the item placements? I like the ruin theme myself. If I had any criticism at all about this, it would be that I would want to see it more overgrown. but that's just a personal preference

It's quite interesting how different the original Q3 version and the QL versions (the official version added years after this map came out, not the unofficial QL version that comes with the Q3 version) look; the latter has a much more clearly medieval theme, whereas this one looks more like a collection of ancient ruins (as stated in the readme). The QL version is quite a bit more detailed and is certainly gorgeous, but I have to admit that the makeover kind of took away a bit of the map's character with such a drastic change of scenery. It'd be interesting to know why the theme was revamped. Excellent map in any case, though.

not confusing at all for me. the direction markers to the bases make this easy enough to learn

This map is very well done. The layout is well thought, the weapons/ammo/items are carefully placed. I really like it. Like TheMuffinMan say in his review this is a professional work. Also, it's pretty big and yes it may be confusing for moving in it at first but after a couple of minutes it's easier to find our way. My only disapointment with this map is that it doesn't support one flag CTF and Team Arena.

If you are interested, I've loaded the map on my Quake 3 public server @ 64.15.78.74 It's running the Threewave mod, you'll find the map in one of the voting room on the first floor. Sadly the level shot won't work in it - look for the blank level shot with the map name of desctf1.

The screenshots look great, but i feel the map deserves better lighting.
