Tig, I think you should have placed some more item_botroams on top of the 2 entrances and in other areas, then I could see potential in the botplay. Just to be fair with you, OK? Otherwise, I think this is a fair map, nice start for a 1st map Tig (even though this is 17 years late).

At first, there where no 'members' on ..::LvL. People just left comments. This quickly became an issue (a few people pretended to be someone they where not, and a few other things happened).

So, the 'membership' part of the site was then added. This topic and other site history questions should really be discussed in the forum.

Technically, this is the 8th map uploaded (with an id of '8' to prove it). The first was 'The Final Hour' by 'QuartZ'. You can check the map id by mousing over the 'Permalink' in the top right of a review page.

Bots are predictable and not smart enough to compete against a decent player who is familiar with this map. Two evenly matched players can compete well against one another provided they both have somewhat equal experience with game play here and play several games in sequence to decide the winner. The look and feel of the arena is good and item placement does great with 4 players. This one is worth keeping.

I found this map quite fun, prob a little bit too much power in the RL room. Bot play was terrible so couldn't really tell tho' (don't get much chance for LAN games and my inet con is shite). Bots just go round in a circle through the bottom tunnel and generally ignore the YA at the non-RL end of the map. V. good for a first map tho' and was clearly a good learning experience going by his other maps. 7 from me as a bit too easy to own.

LOL Natoman, well said. Haven't downloaded the map yet but it does seem like "not entered" got his ass kicked by his gran when he downloaded it. Downloading it atm, can't see how it can be that bad as Tig seems to have a pretty good idea about what makes a good map. I will return with a vote :).

I was hooked as soon as I started. The bots were great. The overall flow of the game is perfect. Item placement is good and the size of the map is awesome. The ratio of tight and open areas are right on. The textures didn't blow me away but overall the map is good looking.

I do have to say I agree with Natoman on "not entered" and "GreenManalashi's" comments. They seem to be some of the more "childish" and "moronic" of the commentators here on LVL. While Tig gave my map a poor review, actually none at all, I have nothing against him and think this map is very good. I LOVE 1v1 maps and this one will be in my baseq3 folder for some time. One more thing for "not entered", you seem to be an EXTREMELY bitter person with nothing good to say about anyone here OR any of the maps. Perhaps you aren't getting any sex or are sick of mastraubating to pictures of Minx ? Maybe that could be the reason for such bitterness ? Get some professional help man !!! Then come back and give some constructive critisism. Don't go away mad though, just GO AWAY !!!

I haven't played this map yet. I'm just commenting on "not entered" and "GreenManalashi's" comments. Their total mastery of grammar and vocabulary is astounding. I'm in awe. I particularly admire their creative use of the word "shit" in various forms. I can't wait to rush to THEIR sites to download their five-star maps! I'm sure with their high intelect, their maps must be sheer genuis!

About a month now since I've started coming to this site, and I've just checked out Tigger-oN's map. Being a lava/goth type map, I admit I'm a bit biased cuz that's exactly what I love (only the fog is missing for my volcanic-goth Hell of my dreams :). I really like the look of it, but I kept thinking there were "another room" or something. I just wish there was more map to cover. Double this thing's size and then It'd go from good to great! Now, I'm starting to wonder if I'm the only one to really love q3tourney5's peasoup !!!!

I dont know what you were thinking in making this shit map man, are you a guy that likes to just win, and dominate, or something? Dont you know of fair play, have you ever heard of such thing, and to make it fair for all players, ok i know it must have been your first map, well learn, and i cant believe it that this map is in the top 10, wow this guys must not know how the game of quake really should be played like, they must be 10 year old kids that gave you a good score, i mean its too easy to dominate, and there is no skill in dominating the map, but ill tell you what skill is, when all start with the same thing,and the respawn is just like the guy from the bottom said - respawn-die-respawn-die-respawn-die,now is that what you call skill? No way, i sure hope you will make your map better, and actually put some thought into it, i know you cant please all, others are just for the thrill of cheap frags, well i like my frags the hard way, the way it ought to be.

I like the architecture in this map -- however, the problem is that there's very little room to fight. You spend most of your time in corridors or stairwells. It's got a tense claustrophobic feeling, which can be cool, but the map isn't big enough to keep tense claustrophobia from turning into repetiveness.

Wow. Very nice aesthetically. I liked the room with the RL perch quite a bit. Still, I think Tigger ought to at least apply to his work the criticism he levels at others. For instance, while this is far indeed from a box, the layout leads to certain box-like predictability in the routes one runs. How about greater randomness, some more choice in direction? I had no difficulty at all pinpointing where my bot opponent was virtually all the time, and while that means I'm controlling the map, it also means that the simple layout reduces options, so that in essence you might as well be playing Q3dm2 (although arguably Tigger's looks cooler).

Not bad for a trial run. Fun for a while.

How about a challenge, though? Why don't you try to make the first (good) Q3 map that has no curves? I'd like to see that...

You can do it!

Heh. We eagerly await your future maps, Tig.

"...a compliment to id's style..."

I saw someone else comment that this level was 'id-style' too.


As I mentioned to Shambler, its as if Tig's maps have always been Q3 style. A lot of his quake1 maps feature similar style and design to that present in One Down (and some of the id maps). His Q1 levels were released quite a long time before id even released screenshots of q3 maps, let along the game itself. Don't just take my word for it, download his Q1 stuff and check for yourself. I wouldn't be saying this crap if it wasn't true. :)

Tig's style just happens to be similar in some ways to q3-style and some of id's levels. Since Tig is one of the most original designers I've seen, I don't like to see people inferring that he's basically copied existing q3 styles or what have you, because it is simply not true. Tig's maps are Tig style, not id style.

Excellent work. Like many have stated before hand, its a tad easy to dominate.. But then again, its a small map so this can almost be expected due to its size. Loose the horn, make the general layout more "fort'ish", so to speak, mirror it and make it a KICK ASS CTF map.

Nice stuff. Architecture is great, a compliment to id's style -- altho I agree with Gonzo on that horn (unless you just did it for spite, in which case it's killer =>)Hope this will spur on many more 1v1 maps for Q3A.

#17   01 Jan 2000
Nice work, although I dislike that horn (doesn't fit to the general style) and it's far too easy to dominate in 1on1. If you time your weapon, item and armor respawn-grabs and know where the respawn spots are it's just respawn-die-respawn-die-respawn-die for your opponent.

btw does anyone actually know reactivedm1 from reactivesoftware?

(Played on a 3 player LAN, and separately versus bots).

Like others have said, it is a little easy to dominate and beat-up on struggling players. With the availability of powerups, if the victor of a particular battle took any damage they could restock again to full health/armour ready for the next encounter. Maybe the 2 health's in the main outside area should have been omitted, making anyone dominating this main area look for the health & armour on the opposite (less frequented) side of the map?

Also, the jump-pad is a worthwhile addition, though perhaps encroaches into the main fighting area too much? People were often running (ie backwards or straffing) mistakenly onto the jump-pad. Quite funny though, chasing a friend who is running backwards trying to retaliate with a perfectly aimed rail, only for him to mount the jump-pad and rail the sky. 8O)

Anyway, minor things as it's a great small ffa map - looks superb too. 8O)

Nice looking map, but for 1on1 it's too easy to dominate. It takes 13 seconds to grab the lg, ya, jump to the rl, fall into a teleporter hole, jump to the rg, fall down to the other ya, and through the tunnel to the 1st ya to complete the loop. With good timing, the other dude doesn't stand much of a chance.

And what's with the 'horn' just hanging there to the side? Seems a bit pointless to me, especially since they're always used as teeth in the id maps.

Now as a small FFA the map really shines; great framerate, a wide variety of weapons, and no easy camping spots. For that I give the map an 8.

I noticed that when running the gap you can cross as a player is a lot more than the gap if you are only walking (u can also begin to fall, then pop back up a bit if you have not fallen much). this is a cool feature, but also means level authors need to be more aware of the size of holes/gaps and the type of gameplay that will be happening around tighter areas

live and learn i guess :]

Nice job Ray. I don't know how you manage to make such high quality maps in such a short space of time. :)

This map looks excellent, nice texture use and subtle lighting effects. I only have a couple of minor complaints... as I commented earlier, I sometimes have a problem getting into that low archway in the middle of the map (more of a 'lack of control') issue in q3 than anything else though) and also because of the small size, it might be a bit easy to dominate. The item placement assures that the map is as fair as possible, though. In any case, it is certainly one of the best 1on1 maps for Q3.

Again, nice job, looking forward to what you'll come up with next!

great map. one of the first things i noticed were weapon did a great job of it. you didnt just plug in all the weapons you actually thought about gameplay. the layout is fantastic and those telerports are too awesome. i tricked my friend by jumping down there and coming up behind him when he though i had fallen to my death...laughed for hours on that one. only prob is its too easy to control... grab the yellow armor, camp the rocket and youve pretty much given the opisition no chance. maybe a red armor or mega health would have been cool. hope to see more, peace out.

Heh. Tigger r0xx. Any guy that can get Fribbles spooging over his maps must rule. Dunno what this one's like as I don't enjoy Q3A gameplay, but it certainly looks H0RRRRRNNNNYYYY =). Guy should get some help for putting a horn like that in. You know, he did a lot of very original Q1 DM maps that had elements of Q3A style, a very long time ago. Should be interesting to see how well that style works in the actual game...

This is a pretty good map. It has better visuals than some of the other user-made maps out for Q3 right now. Gameplay is pretty good, even though most of the fights seem to take place at the section of the map with the lightning gun and RL.

Good map. You should get it if you have some time. Though not the best map out, it certainly isn't the worst (or anywhere near it). This is one of the top 10 in my list of user-made Q3 DM maps.
