Great map for a fast-paced 1v1.

Map looks alright for a floater, but it does have it's setbacks. I'll happily take a 7/10 for it overall.

This is a very nice map.

I have a problem though: I see an ugly white "border" of the skybox, so I see the border of the cube that the whole map is in. Does anyone know how to solve this?

this map looks and feels awesome, has a great atmosphere, is laid out real cool and is just plain fun to play. It took me 2 or 3 games to get used to it i admit but that's the same with any map. Overall i'd say this is one of the best i've seen... everyone should d/l this and try it out.

First space map I really like :-) (I'm no good jumper and hate falling all the time.)

You're floater is great ! With the jumppads facing 'inwards' you hardly ever miss it and diving down into that wonderful ocean isn't that bad. Original design and still very playable !

Very awesome map :)

original design, fine visuals, gameplay (bots don't fall of the ledges all the time, they're pretty smart here :)

but then again, what is a smart bot?

Fantastic skybox :) nice job on that one sock. This level is one of those, that stick out.

Great work!

ALso good connectivity, and i liked the secret places. Bots won't ever find them hehe :)

This is now one of the main DM levs we play at work. Good stuff. How about a nice green island under the base? Have huge ass Bounch pads to go back up..! Real water below? At last a map that you can go in, ON, around, over and under. (?) 8-)

Re: Sky map sizes... if the files are 512x512, it's only going to show 256x256 with the normal (second-highest) texture quality setting. That's probably the setting you want to use on a voodoo3 anyway...

[this BTW is why I can only recommend doing skymaps in 512x512 instead of 256x256.. otherwise people playing with normal settings are going to see the sky in 128x128; that's worse than Quake2!]

Yeah, this needs a CTF port for sure. Sock should keep this theme and just add another maybe smaller base connected somehow to this one. Still rocks as a DM though.

This is a kick ass map! I love it. It is cool to see differnt styles of maps coming out.

And would anyone, other than me, like to see a CTF version? Think about it, 2 different temples with jump pads/accelerators in between.

Good work

This is the best map I´ve played so far in Q3a. Really fine craftmanship. Next time can you make a map with a beach on a south pacific island with lots of palm trees ? Shouldn´t be a problem for you man.

I'm glad everyone so far has enjoyed playing this map. It was certainly fun to make.

Peak_Man: I have created a special version of this map using 256x256 sky textures. If u r interested mail me at

The sky texture is 512x512 (I looked through the pk3)... now I've finally come to regret buying my voodoo 3 instead of a tnt 2... but I guess there's always regret.

This is a wonderful map. It has a great layout, and there is not a single inch of dead space. I love how you always seem to end up in the central arena on the roof. The action then filters down to the other areas quite nicely, but once again back to the arena on top. This gives the map a certain unique flow, that really gives it an edge over other custom maps.

The atmosphere is also very nicely done, the pillars and shadows, on the outside ledges look very impressive. Well done Sock!

Uh... is the sky more than 256x256? Because I have a voodoo3... and if one more aspect of q3a is ruined because of it, I'm killing myself.

Sock, I'm so glad you didn't procrastinate with this map in beta any longer!

Way to go!

Seriously folks, if yer looking for a fast-paced, action filled, vertical map that abounds with playability and eye candy...look no further.


Sock, this map is so unique, I'm blown away.

10 out of 10!

Kudos, man!

If you look at the screeny and think "oh great, a maze map with lots of jump pads, no thanks..." you should give it a try anyway. It was a lot more fun than I expected, and the gameplay is a bit different than most floaters (more indoor-ish sections).

Minor but cool touch -- fall off into the water and see (hear) what happens. :)

Gorgeous map. Unfortunately i seem to be getting a lot of banding on the sky box. Anything i can do about that ?

(Oh, i'm running a GeForce 2 and for looking round a map i turn everything on - 1600x1200, 32 bit colour et al)
