Once in a while I get this urge to do something creative. Sometimes, the creative outlet for that turns out to be Quake 3. The past few years that has been EntityPlus maps. After each map I do, I kind of tell myself: this is the last, it's too much of an investment (in time) for too little return. I find, however, that mapping for Quake 3 can be a very relaxing way to spend my time, so for some reason I keep getting pulled back to it. (edit: to be clear, this is a QUAKE III ARENA map, not a Quake Live map)

So I found myself working on a new EntityPlus map again. This release, however, is not that. After pouring quite a bit of time into it, and sort of hitting a creative brick wall, I felt like doing something that required less thinking. I decided to make a CTF map. I didn't want to think about layout or having to go through those difficult first planning stage steps so I also decided to take one of my existing DM maps and see if I could turn that into a CTF map. I took ermap4 (House of Dissent), which was apt because I had also converted it into an EntityPlus map last year.

I copied, mirrored and glued the map to itself, retextured where necessary (for the red/blue color schemes) and did some rebuilding for a central area. The end result is a map that's not exactly the best map in the world. It's a bit large. A bit chunky. A bit difficult. But it's still sorta fun. I know no one will play it, certainly not online, but I don't care. The building process was fun and relaxing. That's basically what this was all about.

And now I have to somehow get the creative juices flowing again for my EntityPlus map :)

@Eraser

Fecking awesome map dude!!! This is going straight in my CTF rotation. I love the use of the traditional Q3 texture set with a few enhancements as well. It plays really well. Get this in the Lvlworld queue so I can write a proper review for it.

Edit: Nevermind, saw it was in the queue already. Review submitted.

Regards
Ian AKA FoRa!

I am downloading and going to give this a go Eraser. I was looking for something different so thank you.

I must also go back to Lvlworld for a lookie so thank you to foralarx2k3 for the nudge :)

Edit: Yes, days later downloaded both game types and thoroughly enjoyed the run about Eraser :up:

A nice map (a bit too big for my game mode on the server) but generally and so flies to the map rotation. Before entering I had a mistake (probably lack of respaw), after changing gametype everything works. I do not know if on ordinary TDM or some of your own (mod excessiceplus) will work. We'll see :-)
