Almost reviewed this map, but CZGhost beat me to it :). If it weren't for the fullbright and maybe some better texturing, this map would be amazing. As it is, I still think it is a pretty good map.

@GuitarMan: And what's gonna happen to me now that I downloaded, played, and kept the map? You going to find me so you can strap me to an electric chair and electrocute me until I testify that I'm wrong?

It's not that bad of a map. Yeah, there are areas that could use improvement, but I like it's simplicity. Besides, the map has very good fps, and doesn't suck up so much space, convincing me to keep it despite any threat people may make to me get rid of it.

Reviewed by CZghost with some heavy editing by Tig.

LOL! When you see this at the end, you don't need to read the review, and YES, skip the map. Even the screenshot tells you "skip it". Issues could have been fixed with very little effort or even with no effort at all if things are done in a proper way from the ground up. Hopefully the mapper will take notice of this for his next release.

It is always the responsibility of the map author to include all the textures required for their work.

When testing a map and taking screenshots I always use a clean, default install of Quake 3, (no extra PK3 files) plus the map I'm testing. It is highly recommended that map authors do the same before they release their work.

In case you don't know, it is possible to have two copies of Quake 3 (a developer version and a clean version) on the one PC. To make a clean version, simply make a copy of the current main Quake 3 folder, then remove everything except the pak*.pk3 files from the baseq3 directory. You now have a clean version. Click on the Quake3.exe file to start the clean version of the game.

I had no problems with missing textures. Just keep on mind Tig has heavily edited this review so there are some informations I haven't mentioned in the review by default... So the textures they appear missing for Tig must be in Radiant's install pk3...
Yes, I had low framerates, but haven't mentioned it was because due to box-map fullvis...
//Edit: There's a screenshot of map. There's a texture visible, that appears missing for Tig:

I thought this map was very good. I didn't have any missing texture issues, so its likely just a problem at CZghost's end, probably due to come maps interfering with the performance.

In my opinion, this is one of the better Underwater themed maps despite the fullbright glare on certain parts of the map. I like how it isn't too detailed, so its very easy on the eyes. I don't care if it doesn't look hyper-realistic because its Quake 3!

No, I won't skip this map. I'm keeping it.
