Hello you absolute legends.

LvL curates and presents the best Q3 map releases, but all levels are interesting to me. To that end, here's a torrent of every Q3 level I've ever managed to find. It's 111Gb and consists of around 15.5k levels.
This is a magnet link you can paste into a torrent client to download it: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:0218cc054f95eab157621bdd54475addbf509138&xt=urn:btmh:1220c57bbda3b35342047b0a7c6a9478d8eca2873cb406bc5620a3e6aa10e050da1a&dn=Quake%203%20Level%20Archive&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.opentrackr.org%3a1337%2fannounce

It's probably missing many Defrag levels. Because there are so many and they're often low-effort I've not mustered up the patience to grab them all from Worldspawn.

Here is a list of all files in the torrent: controlc.com/abafc320

Here is a list of levels I know existed but haven't been able to find: controlc.com/5ddcf63f

If you have any levels on the missing list or otherwise not in the archive, please let me know!

Danke schön,

Edit: September 2023 - Updated to a new magnet link. Some new content, mostly Urban Terror maps. Sorted a lot more into subfolders e.g. Defrag. Identified and removed some duplicates.

Awesome, thanks for this!
i'd just wish you separated the defrag maps somehow.

Thanks @Gelenkbusfahrer!
Next version will have as many Defrag (and other mod-specific) maps separated out into subfolders as possible. It's pretty tricky, because some are not obviously labelled and even some of the maps flagged as defrag (containing a .defi file, for example) are actually playable levels in vq3 with regular pickups and such. Real hard to cleanly separate stuff.
So far I've managed to shuffle ~6100 levels into their own subfolders, and ~9400 are still in the main dir.

This thread is pure gold. Thank you for taking time and effort to collect this!!! <3

Its a small silly thing, but I remember it was either WCG 2002 or ESWC 2003/2004 that had a pk3 file that puts the
logo event on the maps used in the comp. Was a nice little touch back then.
To think, Q3 can reach 65GB just by maps alone. Not even counting all the demos from the comps backs then.

New version for September 2023. A lot more content sorted into subfolders and a lot of duplication stripped out (stuff like zip and pk3 stored separately, or two versions of a map that are actually identical just named or compressed differently). Largest addition is 5000 Urban Terror maps, all in a separate subfolder that you can exclude from the download if you don't want them.
Size is now 15.5k, 111Gb. New magnet link is in the first post.

Hi! I see the Torrent also has OpenArena maps, we've been wanting to preserve OA material for quite a long time. I have a lot of maps uploaded to a Mega folder.

Here are my maps and reworks: mega.nz/folder/7d5GAAxT
Here are the third-party untouched maps: mega.nz/folder/XUhSXTzT

I've also uploaded many OA maps to MapRaider as well as ModDB. Here are links to those too!
Once again, awesome job!
