One of the best "Gothic Hall" - type levels I've ever seen... bots like it ( use 7 or 8 for real fun ) and it looks and plays real smooth, good frame-rates all round the place. Good weapon placement too, although I seem to keep running out of RG ammo just when I neded it most! :-)

Monsieur RRROOOAAARRR lui donne: 9.5/10

Ok. I think I'll need to play this map A LOT more before I really learn it! It's just HUGE !!! The big downside I see to huge maps is that you have to escape heavy fire right upon re-spawning just to get to a decent gun, and the big gun emplacements scream out "Heavy bombardment zone". But in a team DM game with 10-16 people, this map must be the shit. Oh, and I love pulling 720s on those huge gaps !!! :)

Ok, I managed to solve the problem for both maps, by putting the image it was complaining about (launchpad_metalbridge04d) into the folder it wanted (textures/dmmq3dm2/)... I have no idea why it would expect to find that there. I think maybe there is something funky about that dmmq3dm2 map conversion.

I don't have the textures on the jumppads in the big room. I have a gray square. Bringing up the console reveals that it can't find the textures or something is missing. Anyone else get this?

Very nice map indeed. The arches are just a blast to fly through on the jumpads, that's chick's face is a sweet effect, and the whole map just has a great affect. I don't think it is too big at all. I am sick of three-room-and-a-hallway DMs. Great job Riscchip, let us know when your next is out.

Well. It's been on our servers for several weeks and I was wondering when it would get submitted.

There are many great aspects to this map. The flow and proportions are just right. Though the file says 8-16 it's actually pretty good playing hunt'em with 4 players.

It has a central room with a roughly symmetrical map layout (I haven't checked but it feels like it) and some large unique spaces to really fight in.

The screen shot shows a classic "risk getting you butt kicked to get the rl" section - since it's recessed in a little pocket and over looked by the top of the stairs. Even here the Riscchip has included 2 jump pads either side of the stairs so you can surprise those potential campers.

Weapon placement and ammo is intelligent and well thought out. The Quad is central to the main room but overlooked on four sides with opposing jumps on two of them.

Achitecture, while nothing new, is equally well executed but not very interesting to look at. The face is cool but the coolness is lost in it's placement...

The flow mentioned above is excellent - you never really know until you've played it for ages - whilst some players do follow routes this is greatly reduced by the distance and weapon placement. In this map you make do with what you have and fight your way to what you want.

Altogether it's a great map with some excellent set pieces and attention to [gameplay] detail.

If you ask me I'd say the author played his map again and again with lots of good quakers and listened to what they had to say....

I've had this map for a while now, haven't got sick of it yet, I think it's really good. Not quite as good as the *Top* custom Quake3 maps, but very good just the same. It'll be staying on my Hard Drive, well, for as long as Quake3 does anyway, lets see I'm 36 now, should live for another 45 years, so yeah !! it'll be there for quite a while :)

This map is reeal big for my tastes, however I have to say that that woman's face with the shader effect is so cool.. how come iD didn't give us some stuff like that? ;) .. reminds me of that old genesis game 'devil crush', heh.
