TLQ3Dm1 - Blood, Sweat, and Frags by Truthful Liar

TLQ3Dm1 - Blood, Sweat, and Frags is quite a nice map considering it is the author's first. Using the Gothic set of id Software's original Quake 3 Arena textures, this map looks pretty good. Geometry is, in general, good, but take particular note of the excellent curvy stairways in some places. Lighting is nice, and the colours from certain textures (for example, the lava) come out really well on the greyish stone walls of the id Software textures.

Game play is good and mainly vertical. The curvy stairways turn a bit sharply, which can make it hard to move sometimes, and some geometry lacks decent player clip, which can inhibit fast movement around the map. Item placement is fine; not too crowded but all the items used work nicely. Bots play brilliantly and will even make good use of short jumps across areas on the upper floors.

Probably not a keeper, but a nice download all the same. A great first map; I'd like to see more from this author.

Tig's notes: A excellent first release and a recommended download! The game play with 4 people is fast, yet not cramped with areas that will suit all player styles. Grab it!
