Quake III Arena
The Quake 3 engine has been used for many games, as it has a versatile engine that can manipulated to create great virtual worlds.
This map is set in an ancient pyramid. The lighting was all done from flames and other natural sources (no background light). This gave the level an impressive feeling of atmosphere and really showed off the Q3A engines abilities. Unfortunately, due to a hard drive failiure, the only copy of the level is an old version rendered with no lightmap.
To install this map, put the file, aztec.pk3 in your Q3A baseq3 folder. To play the level set up a multiplayer game or a skirmish, and add some bots. The new map should be available with the other maps. If not, press the [~] key to access the console. Type /map aztec and press enter. If you have cheat mode enabled then load the map with the command /devmap aztec to allow the cheats to be used.
The last three images are screen shots from this map. The lighting is working in this level, but there is no environment map and some of the detail is missing. This level allows you to see the lighting from the ‘stargates’ which is unfortunately missing from the other level.
To install this map, put the file, castle.pk3 in your Q3A baseq3 folder. To play the level, do the same as described for the previous map, except type /map castle at the console.
