..::LvL Q3A - 20 Years
---------------------------------------------------25.Nov.2019-- ..::LvL Q3A - 20 Years -------------------------------------------------lvlworld.com/-- Quake 3 Arena and ..::LvL Q3A has been running now for 20 years. This pack covers 22 maps released over that time. After playing a short list of about 150 maps from the more than 2,300 that are currently listed on ..::LvL, one of the hardest things I have done over the last 20 years is picking which releases to include in this pack. While this limited release of 22 maps will not suit everyone, during play testing, these maps stood out to me. ----Included maps---------------------------------------------- - ChiropteraDM by Alcatraz, nunuk and Sock - OverWhelming Hostility by Auhsan - Estatica by Cardigan - Rainy Day by cityy - McSarge's by cityy - Shibam by DaEngineer - Up Close and Personal by DruZli - Meatball Grinder (v1.1) by Fingers - Undergod by fKd - Endurance by flipout - Iron Yard by Friction - Rustgrad by Hipshot - The Forlorn Hope by JustOneFiX - Ludonarrative Dissonance by Lunaran - You'll Shoot Your Eye Out by Lunaran and KungFuSquirrel - Story to tell by NecrosiS - Trespass by Pat Howard - Swiss Cheese Trickster by Q-Fraggel - Focal Point by Sock - Dismemberment by the Hubster - Aerowalk [Hubster's Remix II] by The Preacher - conversion by the Hubster - Tortured by thefury ----what to do------------------------------------------------- Extract the contents of lvl-20-years.zip to your baseq3 directory. Start Quake 3 and load the map of choice from the skirmish menu. You could also play through all the maps as a single player mission. In your baseq3 directory should also be a "lvl-20-years-sp.zip" file. This is a simple Q3A mod that will allow you to play all the maps as a single play tier. Exact the lvl-20-years-sp.zip (with directories enabled) to your main Quake 3 location. This will create a "lvl-20-years" directory with the following files: - description.txt - lvl-20-years.pk3 - lvl-20-years.txt (a copy of this readme) - lvl-20-years-start.bat - lvl-20-years-ioquake3.x86.bat - lvl-20-years-ioquake3.x86.sh While you can now use the Quake 3 menu system to select the "..::LvL Q3A - 20 Years" mod and start the single player mission, your status and tier progress is NOT recorded this way. ----keeping track---------------------------------------------- If you want to "record" your status and progress through the tiers, you need to start the game with the command line option: "+set fs_game lvl-20-years" For Windows users, you can use the included batch files, either "lvl-20-years-start.bat" or "lvl-20-years-ioquake3.x86.bat" For Mac and Linux users, there is an included shell script that may work for you. "lvl-20-years-ioquake3.x86.sh" If it does not work, open and edit to suit your environment. ----who did this?---------------------------------------------- This Map Pack was put together by Tigger-oN to encourage people to play these maps. This is only a small sample of the excellent Q3A mapping skill of people. All included authors were contacted, but not everyone responded. If your map is listed but you would rather it was not included, please get in touch.

The place deteriorated in peace for many years until one day when Sarge and Keel rediscovered it on a weekend urban exploration trip. They transformed it into an illegal dueling arena which is now notorious for attracting the shadiest, most degenerate Quake duelers and aggressive play. Be advised: trespassers will be shot on sight! GAMEPLAY: I got a flash of inspiration to make this layout after watching Quantic Dream's short film "Kara". The map was actually codenamed "Kara" during the alpha testing phase. Gameplay-wise, I was thinking about Lost World, Toxicity, and Blood Run, in that order for inspiration. My goals were to improve on making interesting connections between 3-4 rooms and to create trick jumps by making lots of small changes in elevation. I also tried to incorporate more cover than in my previous maps. This map is primarily designed for duel mode, but FFA has an alternative item layout and works well with three or four players. ART: I was inspired to do an abandoned factory theme after seeing Helder Pinto's amazing "Post Apocalyptic" UDK scene. I realized the the theme could work really well for a Q3A level because the detail wouldn't interfere with player movement. I spent a lot of time on www.dubtown.de checking out abandoned factories in Germany from the WW2 era. I fell in love with an album of an old ammonia factory (www.dubtown.d...fabrik_safea.html) and that served as the main concept art for the map. The central pillar by the RA is modeled after an old high-pressure ammonia reactor. I'd like to give special thanks to the awesome artists who contributed assets to this map. Without them, this map would never have been made. First and foremost I have to mention Hipshot (www.zfight.com) who created all the trees and FX for this map, as well as the sky. I am also borrowing most of the textures from his map Rustgrad. Sock (www.simonoc.com) created all the plants and the seams/shapes that I applied to many of the metal textures. Some of the metal textures are by Phantazm11 (www.phantazm11.com) from his map Solarium. I've also used decals by Tabun (www.tabun.nl)) I made the rest of the textures using photo sources (www.cgtextures.com)) Note that I have heavily edited a lot of the assets I borrowed from other artists. ================ CREDITS & THANKS ================ TEXTURES/MODELS: Hipshot (Rustgrad, Crescent, Industrial, Miramar Sky) - www.zfight.com Sock (Plant texture/model set, industrial texture set) - www.simonoc.com Phantazm11 (Solarium) - www.phantazm11.com Tabun (decals) - www.tabun.nl Pat Howard (the rest) via CGTextures - www.cgtextures.com SOUND: Birds - reinsamba bird_robin1 bird_robin2 www.freesoun...mba/sounds/32479/ Mings bird_tui1 www.freesoun...gs/sounds/181574/ Goran bird_crossbill1 www.freesoun...09/sounds/240249/ IFartInUrGeneralDirection bird_wren1 www.freesoun...ion/sounds/70226/ Cajo bird_cajo1 www.freesoun...ajo/sounds/34207/ klankbeeld bird_woodpecker1 www.freesoun...ld/sounds/182541/ Frogs - madbob69 www.freesoun...69/sounds/265107/ Jungle loops - Sock simonoc.com/p...design/mp/pom.htm Crickets - dobroide www.freesoun...ide/sounds/18679/ Bees - digifishmusic www.freesoun...sic/sounds/59451/ FRIENDS & COMMUNITY: NSW for testing 8 million versions of this map with me www.quake3world.com www.quakelive.com for support and encouragement - you guys rock!

This patch pk3 adds a "levelshot" and an "arena" file. These two items will allow the level to appear in the Quake 3 menu system. It will also add "Sarge" and "Major" as the default two bots. With out the patch, you would have to load the map from the console and add bots manually. You would also see the "default" level shot when loading the map. If cityy, does release an update to fix these small issues, please delete the patch! -Tig lvlworld.com/ August 10, 2012 Quake III Arena DUEL level ============================================================ title: McSarge's file: ct3tourney3.pk3 author: Ferdinand 'cityy' List email address: cityy at gmx dot de / ferdinand.list at gmail dot com website: cityy.explicits.de / www.cityyz.de ============================================================ information: tourney: yes free for all: 3 Players team deathmatch: - capture the flag: - Bot File (aas): yes Eastereggs: 1 other: This map is designed to work in vq3 while there are additional jumps that can only be done in cpm how to play: place ct3tourney3.pk3 in your baseq3/ folder start quake3 hit ~ type \map ct3tourney3 type \addbot <botname> <skill> <team> hit ~ (to clear the console) OR select McSarges(ct3tourney3) from the skrimish menu. ============================================================ Statistics: - compile time: 720 seconds - Harware: Intel Core i5 3450, 16GB Corsair Venegeance RAM - Brush count: 4425 - Entity count: 448 - func_group: 168 - light: 176 ============================================================ This map has been created for the quake 3 mapping competition #4 hosted by maverickservers.com. (mapping.maverickservers.com/) For the theme I have been inspired by games I recently (in 2012) played, like Team Fortress 2 or Rage. UPDATE: Today, on January 17th 2014 I finally managed to find the time to fix the remaining bugs on the map and put together a final release version. Here are some lame excuses for the delay: School, girlfriend, work for QuakeLive, my dog ate the .map file. The file size is stupidly big because the .pk3 contains a lot of high resolution textures, some of which I did not use on the map but wanted to include to give people the opportunity to use them in their own work (please credit me if you do). MAP DESIGN CONCEPT: The map's theme builds up on McSarge's, a fictive company for deathmatch supply and manufacturing. Offering Rocket Launchers, Jumppads, Armors with superior build quality, the enterprise managed to build up an overwhelming monopoly. Prior to entering the Deathmatch market in 1999, the family business founded in the late 19th centuary focused on coal and steel productions only; expanding quickly and eventually raising up their palett of products. To date, the company that went up a steep path during the industrial revolution still has it's old fashioned beauty to it, as well as the flawless product quality. OTHER INFO: Making the level took about 6 weeks (+1.5 years of delay and one day of bug fixing) , including developing the layout,creating the textures from references (taken from cgtextures.com) texturing, lighting, shader effects and technical optimization. On the map itself you can find one Mega Health, one Red Armor, one Yellow Armor, two Green Armors and all of Quake 3's weapons minus the BFG. Gameplay wise, I was aiming towards a fast paced and vertical setup as I usually tend to do. Additionally, to give the level an unique touch, I tried to develop some extraordinairy angles and routes to have an extended learning curve for the player while keeping the basic layout simple enough to make the layout accessable and easy. ============================================================ construction: base: none editor: NetRadiant/GTKradiant 1.6 other progs: The GIMP, notepad ++ know bugs: - ============================================================ Used materials: - texture references from cgtextures.com - Jumppad effect shader by Hipshot (zfight.com) Thanks to: - Maverick (www.maverickservers.com/) for hosting and organizing the contest - the sponsors for making the contest possible with their prizes - also the judges for offering their time and making the contest possible - everybody who participated in the contest - everyone else who gave feedback, especially AEon, akm, Despair, Obsidian, Phantazm11 ============================================================ Distribution / Copyright / Permissions Copyright (c) 2012 cityy, cityy at gmx dot de All rights reserved.

Item Load : 2 SGs, 2 RLs, LG, PG, YA, RA, MH. CPMA Version Notes : While playable in CPMA, there is no special CPMA version included. Nobody would PLAY a CPMA version of this, because it's a space map and void deaths are just totally not a CPMA thing. That said, this map is a total joy to soar around in with CPMA's altered friction, air control, and acceleration, even if it's wholly unsuited for a tournament. I tested the map locally by flying around in CPMA, and when it came time to test the map publicly in VQ3 it was like driving a dump truck on ice. (into the void.) : AAS is included, and as of this version (2) actually behave in their normal, mostly not-impressive manner. They cannot make most of the jumps, opting to hop suicidally into the void, but when their path doesn't take them across such insurmountable perils they do navigate and behave roughly like you've come to expect. I painstakingly selected a set of bots that are least prone to cliff diving via a rather dull and sadistic empirical grudge match, so if you're looking for the "full" experience, go with the default recommended set in the create game dialog. - Construction --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Textures : 4 Brushes : 12,600 Average R_Speeds : Six digits.

I wanted to achieve two things with this map I was unable to combine until now: good gameplay AND turning away from the standard Quake 3 look. Because of this, Shibam has much more vertical gemeplay compared to my previous maps. There are endless possibilities to get from A to B and as few borders as possible - almost every visible place can be reached. ============================================================ Map information Tourney: Yes Deathmatch: Yes, 2-3 players are fun Team Deathmatch: Yes, 2on2 works well CTF: No Bot File (aas): Yes New sound effects: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: No How to play: Place shibam_v1.2.pk3 in your baseq3 directory. The map is selectable in the skirmish menu ============================================================ Map is based on: Photos of the desert city Shibam. Only the city's look was payed attention to, not the actual layout Editor: GtkRadiant 1.5.0 Other tools: q3ase, Notepad, Photoshop Known bugs: Bots don't use the jump pad behind the RL ============================================================ Credits Most textures are based on textures from www.cgtextures.com. Others are edited standard Q3 textures. The airflow texture is based on the Quake 3 firegorre texture and was edited by sst13. Visit him on sst13.net The sound effect sound/misc/windfly.wav was taken from Quake 1. The sound effects gatter.wav and wooden_door.wav were made by Patrick "Scout" Schotte. Visit him on patrickschotte.wordpress.com ============================================================ I would like to thank... Stefan "sst13" Scholz. I've seen the pipe system the first time in your map "13qdm17". Many thanks for the airflow texture together with the shader and your mapfile for a better understanding how this stuff works! Patrick "Scout" Schotte. If you didn't help me almost every day with this map and even contributed some brushwork and sound effects to it, Shibam would never have been as much fun as it is now!

September 2011 Titel: Shibam File: shibam_1.3.pk3 Autor: Victor "DaEngineer" Karp Email: daengineer [at] gmx [dot] de Blog: victorkarp.wordpress.com Shibam basiert namentlich und optisch auf einer Wüstenstadt in Jemen. Allerdings haben auch einige high-tech Elemente einen Weg in das kleine Städtchen gefunden. Ich wollte mit dieser Map zwei Dinge vereinen, die mir bisher nie wirklich gelungen sind: gutes Gameplay und die gleichzeitige Abkehr vom ewig gleichen Quake 3 Texturset. Deshalb ist diese Map im Gegensatz zu meinen bisherigen Maps viel vertikaler aufgebaut, besitzt endlose Möglichkeiten, von A nach B zu kommen und soll natürlich auch primär Spaß machen. Dem Spieler sind innerhalb des Levels nur minimale Grenzen gesetzt, nahezu jeder sichtbare Ort kann und soll auch erreicht werden. ============================================================ Map Informationen Tourney: Ja Deathmatch: Ja, ich würde 2-3 Spieler empfehlen Team Deathmatch: Ja, 2on2 funktioniert gut CTF: Nein Bot File (aas): Ja Neue Soundeffekte: Ja Neue Texturen: Ja Neue Musik: Nein Starthinweis: Die shibam_v1.2.pk3 muss ins baseq3 Verzeichnis kopiert werden und kann dann über das Skirmish Menü ausgewählt werden ============================================================ Basiert auf: Fotos der Wüstenstadt Schibam. Dabei wurde jedoch nur der Stil umgesetzt, nicht der tatsächliche Aufbau der Stadt Editor: GtkRadiant 1.5.0 Andere Programme: q3ase, Notepad, Photoshop Bekannte Bugs: Bots benutzen das Jumppad hinter dem RL nicht ============================================================ Credits Ein Großteil der Texturen basiert auf Texturen von www.cgtextures.com. Ein paar der benutzten alten Quake 3 Texturen wurden farblich von mir angepasst, um in den Stil der Map zu passen. Die Textur für den Luftstrom in der Röhre basiert auf der firegorre Textur aus Quake 3 und wurde von sst13 erstellt. Seine Homepage kann unter sst13.net gefunden werden. Der Soundeffekt sound/misc/windfly.wav stammt aus Quake 1. Die Soundeffekte gatter.wav und wooden_door.wav wurden von Patrick "Scout" Schotte erstellt. Sein Blog kann unter patrickschotte.wordpress.com gefunden werden. ============================================================ Ich richte meinen Dank an... Stefan "sst13" Scholz. Das Röhrensystem, das den Spieler zur Red Armor befördert, habe ich erstmals in deiner Map "13qdm17" gesehen. Vielen Dank für deine Luftstromtextur samt Shader sowie das map file zum besseren Verständnis! Patrick "Scout" Schotte. Wenn du mir nich nahezu täglich mit Rat und Tat zu dieser Map beigestanden und hier und da auch mal etwas Brushwork beigesteuert hättest, wäre sie bei Weitem nicht einmal ansatzweise so gut geworden, wie sie letzten Endes ist. Nicht zu vergessen die beiden Soundeffekte, ohne die ich wirklich aufgeschmissen wäre. Vielen Dank dafür! Die Mitglieder von www.mappingbase.de und www.quake3world.com. Ihr habt ein gutes Stück zu dieser Map beigetragen! ============================================================ Distribution / Copyright / Permissions Copyright (c) 2011 Victor "DaEngineer" Karp All rights reserved.

Not noticeable, but results in a cleaner BSP and less polys • the camera entity for the spectator mode was placed outside the playing area • corrected one misplaced and thus useless hint brush • one brush was textured with slick instead of nodrop • wrong texture scale at the archway near the MH • it’s no longer possible to collide with the underside of angled clip brushes inside the RG tower • when approaching the RA tunnel’s entrance from above (e.g. by rocket jumping) the player was thrown against the wall above the tunnel endlessly instead of getting drawn in. This has been fixed by adjusting a clip brush • removed one unnecessary brush as well as an entity iside the RA tunnel [ADDED] • the archway above the MH is partly destructed now. This allows jumping directly from the balcony above the shard group to the MH without hitting the inner city wall • raised the lowest floor (the one with the Quad) by 16 units which results in no falling damage when dropping down from the first level • added a stair at the YA leading from YA to the tower's socket • added a stair at the socket’s RA facing side • added a jump pad behind the Rocket Launcher to connect 1st and 2nd floor. Two spawn points needed to be moved • at the RG tower's backside there's a button now. Push it, and a door at the tower's front will open for a couple of seconds. This door will lead you to the tower's inside. You can get the RG from there just as if you'd taken the teleporter. While the door is opened, the teleporter will be closed by lowering poles • multiple weak lights to light up the narrow stair aside the mosque and the mosque’s front • added a nodrop brush to the RG tower’s bottom [CHANGED] • replaced Shotgun on the balcony with a Plasmagun and bullets at the teleporter with cells. Removed SG ammo at the basket-stair and placed cells on the new stair aside it • removed clay pots to clear the new walkway to the stair at the YA • slightly broadened the walkway along the four firebowls • decreased the brightness of the firebowl's light entities to reduce bright spots when playing with r_overbrightbits 1 • added 3 small health's in each jump pad tunnel and removed 2 small health bubbles above the left bazaar. Removed the middle one of the 5 armor shards • wooden frames under items are now depending on the item type. Shards, 5HP and 25HP bubbles have rectangular frames, armor, MH and Quad have octagonal ones. Frames are below every health and armor item now, and the texture has been changed from the standard Q3 wood texture to Shibam's wood texture • redesigned the teleporter to the RG tower's bottom • significantly increased the distance to the top skybox brushes. Jumping around with quad damage is just too much fun to prevent it artificially • changed some lines of the skybox shader to improve lighting • the plank in front of the mosque no longer lies in a straight line from window to window. Instead, it has become a ramp to allow travelling up to the right window from the stairs‘ foot aside the mosque [KNOWN PROBLEMS] • bots don’t use the jump pad behind the RL - LUN3_20B1: File Information ---------------------------------------------- 01.23.2011 --- Title : Ludonarrative Dissonance Filename : lun3_20b1.pk3 Authors : Matt "Lunaran" Breit Email Address : **email removed** Web Sites : www.lunaran.com Installation : To install, simply unzip and place lun3_20b1.pk3 in your baseq3 directory wherever you installed Quake3:Arena.

So I always try to include a few in my maps. With this map, no distance for jumping is set by chance. So check out where strafe / double / bunny jumps may be useful :D Also, every jumppad has AT LEAST TWO (up to 4-5) useful landing destinations. Rocket- / Plasmajumps on jumppads are sometimes useful but not necesarry at all. There are about 25+ REALLY USEFUL trickjumps. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- * AUTHOR's NOTES * -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is most likely my last Q3A custom map, don't expect more.

It reminded me of the "DM4" style of Q1, and set me off on a tangent of creating strange metallic Quake-ish textures... Had to do a map with them too. This level is somewhat of a rehash of my old Quake2 quickie "The Tentacular Terrace", but upgraded to the current level of engine technology... I even trimmed the curves ;-p Plays best with 2-3 players. Runs OK on my "old" p2/350 with a cheap Geforce 2 MX with all the detail (not resolution) cranked up, but it IS a bit heavy on curves... So turn down the geometry detail if you experience slowdown.

Makes use of many of the new visual effects made possible by ydnar's fantastic q3map2 compiler - hi-res shadows, lightmapped terrain and models etc... Recommended specs: Beauty unfortunately comes at a price - something I can attest to after undergoing 12 years of cosmetic surgery to make me look like David Hasselhoff. In the case of this map the price is a GeForce2 or equivalent graphics card with processor to match and I would imagine 64MB of video RAM for full texture detail. Anything less will probably result in unplayable frame rates, although reducing geometric and texture detail and switching to 16-bit colour will make the map less system-hungry. ======================================= How to play ----------------- Unzip the .pk3 file into your baseq3 directory and off you go! Type "\map estatica" into the console or choose the map through the skirmish menu. Assets: ----------- New textures: yes, all textures made in Photoshop 7.0 by me. Some textures contain photographic elements taken from the following rather groovy public photo collections: Travis Price's Texture Bin 342: www.digitalcr...in/textureBin.htm Jeremy A. Engleman's Public Textures: www.art.net/~...exture/index.html Animax www.animax.it Ornate tile designs taken from 2 textures on the TextureWorld European Tile texture CD. Some of the textures in this map will shortly be available to use as part of the Map-Center Mediterranean Texture Challenge Pack. See www.map-center.com for more details. new shaders: yes. new models: yes - the palm is by Todd Gantzler and the rest are by me. new sounds: yes, a rustle cobbled together in Sound Forge from various sounds from Todd's multiplant model pack. new music: yes, a moody atmospheric piece commissioned from my good friend The Tudor Intruder. ========================================== FUQ (Frequently Unanswered Questions) 1. Why doesn't the rain move? ========================================== Answers to Spot the Deliberate Mistake Competition (aka Known Issues) 1. z-fighting around the smaller pools and in a few other places in 16-bit mode. 2. a few hard edges on the lightmaps. 3. portals wobble in out-of-the-box q3 and in many mods.

The weapons and items rotate and bob as normal, something I tried to override using a cunning idea from Sonke Richter (thanks!) but unfortuantely all the global shader switching required to keep the items still and make them invisible when they were not available was causing horrible framerate drop-outs. =========================================== Thanks to.... ydnar for writing q3map2, without which many of the fancy effects in this map (high res shadows etc) would not have been possible. Everyone at the Q3W Level Editing forums for their support, especially quint for being such a good pal, wviperw for his comprehensive feedback and djbob for helping me out with some techy stuff. The ICE and CPMA mod teams for writing ICE and CPMA which allowed me to test new item layouts at decent framerates without having to sit through another enormous VIS compile. My mexican connection Lionel Steamer for the title and feedback. The Tudor Intruder for the music. Todd Gantzler for the palm model which can be found at: i.am/professorQ3 id software for making Q3. My partner Megan, son Fred and baby Lola for putting up with me, contributing lots of good ideas and generally being splendid. ==================================================== Distribution / Copyright / Permissions Level design, map models and texture art copyright Dan 'Cardigan' Evans, 2003 (subject to exceptions stated above) Quake III Arena is a registered trademark of id Software, Inc.

This one has been in the process for 6 months and im glad to finally get rid of it. "But where are the curves? This is supposed to be Q3A?!", I hear you say. Oldskool Flavor here, no curves to be seen (okay, i got couple patches tho). Angular stuff just rocks too much :) Recommended player load: 3-8 in FFA (3-6 if you dislike mayhem) 2 vs 2 - 4 vs 4 in TeamDM. (again, 4 vs 4 is action packed) Some brave souls might even try duels, quite large for that tho. Botplay : Bots do play the map but thats pretty much all about it, so dont expect to see anything fancy in that department. The layout just seems to be too much for them to handle. Included bots are: Doom, Ranger, Keel, Hunter and Patriot Greetings to : All betatesters, and in particular to Bal - The Triangular Betatester Shambler for suggesting adding an outdoor part Clan Eel Residents of #Terrafusion - The home of 00rt and other such things Pete 'Meat' Parisi for the awesome meatpak textures (www.badmeat.com) Than for the great than_industrial texture set (www.planetquake.com/cesspit) Lunaran for lundesert rock and dirt textures (fragland.net/lunaran/news.php) And to everyone else I forgot (And to CardO because he is whining to get his name here at IRC ;=) ****************************************************** Techy Stuff Compile Machine : Celeron 500 / 128MB SDRAM Compile Time : Bsp 33 seconds : Vis 663 seconds : Rad 1034 seconds : Total 29 minutes New Textures : Yes, Meatpak, than_industrial and some modified ones by me New Sounds : Some from Q2 New Music : No Weapon Load : GL, RL, RG, Shaft and 2 Shotguns Ammo : 4 ammo_bullet 2 ammo_grenades 2 ammo_lightning 3 ammo_rockets 3 ammo_shells 2 ammo_slugs ****************************************************** The boring part : You may not.. ..distribute this level on any physical media without my written permission ..use this level as a base to build additional levels ..omit this textfile when distributing this map You may.. ..distribute this level via electronic means freely (Internet, BBS, etc) ..put this level in map packs (please contact me if you do so) ..put this level on any server you want ..enjoy the level :) And Remember : If something blows up I had nothing to do with it.
