This collection of maps contains no less than 100 unique maps for your enjoyment. They are all compatible with Open Arena 0.7.0 or later and should provide for many hours of gaming, and then some. I can guarantee that all the CTF fans out there will find plenty of fun, and the same goes for dedicated hardcore 1on1 tourney fraggers or frantic DM fans.  I decided to make a mix of 1on1/DM/TDM/CTF maps and include only the best of the best, so here you have a map-pack divided into 5 separate parts for you to download. Each file is about ~90 mb up to ~130 mb and can be downloaded from the following addresses:

http://w1zrd.files-upload.com/410638/map_pack_01.zip.html 104.9 mb
http://w1zrd.files-upload.com/410709/map_pack_02.zip.html 127.1 mb
http://w1zrd.files-upload.com/410752/map_pack_03.zip.html 90.3 mb
http://w1zrd.files-upload.com/410793/map_pack_04.zip.html 94.2 mb
http://w1zrd.files-upload.com/410862/map_pack_05.zip.html 129.5 mb

[updated 2007-08-18: the individual links #01-#05 have for unknown reason been broken, even though the files are still uploaded on that account. Seed the torrent and keep this alive if you are intrested in using this map-pack.]


A .torrent file containing all 5 packages compressed to one .zip file can be found at the following address:
http://www.gameupdates.org/details.php?id=1364 546.1 mb
Please help and seed!

I think that was just a temporary problem since it seemed like we had many people downloading at the same time. There are currently downloads running for other users, and they all seems to work. Try again, it should hopefully work Smiley

Before I download all these, are all these in their original pk3s and have their original txt files?

Because I want to stock up for q3 playing, too

All the .pk3s are originals and include the authors .txt file (and extra material) with exception for one file, the map Bouncin 'Tween Da Boxen, or boxen.pk3. This file has been edited by me as I removed the camper, badmnky and batman botfiles from it's source. The file contained corrupted bots data which seriously affected playing with bots (on any map). So yes, you should be able to stock up your Q3 library and have some fun with it Smiley

I tried the 5 different links [update: and even started downloads for all 5] just now and in this end they work just as they should.
Just to clarify: you need to use the separate addresses, it doesn't work to simply increment the number with one since the entire link is unique/file.
Try clearing the cache on your machine, it could be some redundant information saved. Let's see if others have the same problem..

i opened each link you posted in a seperate tab and each tab described a different file, but when i clicked "download link" it came up with map_pack_05.zip no matter what tab i was in.

For those who are going to use the torrent to get the maps, please for the love of god, do not limit your upload speed to such low amounts. If you can, at least provide half upload speed while you download. This way the speed of the torrent stays consistant and people can get the file faster.

Congrats W1ZrD,

I know first hand just how much blood, sweat and tears you have personally invested into this outstandingly wonderful map-pack.  Not to mention the countless hours and sleepless nights spent searching for, downloading, play-testing, contacting authors and obtaining all the needed information required to distribute each individual map as an impressively bundled collection.

You don't normally witness something on this scale everyday, that's for sure. Smiley

If anyone is wondering whether or not to download the map-packs, trust me, they are certain to, at the very least, bring you many hours of enjoyment.  I consider this to be well worth the effort expended to simply download and enjoy yourself.  Each pack is consistently comprised of the highest quality of maps, a genuine keeper in my opinion.

Thanks dude, this is truly pure sweetness, if ever I saw it. Cheesy

Wow man, didn't expect to find all these amazing maps in this thread. Smiley Thanks a bunch... I have really horrible internet, and I usually get my jollies off with just the bots, so I hope these are bot-compatible. Smiley Wooo, gonna start the download now. Thanks again!

I am in shock. I finally got the map pack downloaded last night and got a chance to try it out with some bots today.

In all honesty, I was expecting a bunch of lame maps due to the fact that it would be pretty difficult to put 50 maps together that were actually good... But my guess was completely wrong, these maps are all (from what I've seen so far) absolutely amazing. They all have unique qualities and the game experience for me has been enhanced tenfold.

Thanks so much for sharing this... Any chance of some of these maps getting GPL'd and bundled with OpenArena? Cheesy How cool would that be!

Anyway, I just notice one problem, maybe it's my computer... I noticed that when skirmishing with most all of the maps it will allocate a proper amount of bot slots (like it will automatically make "Bot" for 6 or 7 of the players) but it won't populate the slots with bot names, so I gotta manually pick bots for each one. Tongue

Is there an easy way to populate the list with bots, or even better, to automatically pick a set of my favorite bots? Smiley There's always a certain 3 or 4 bots that I like to play against and would be cool if I could automate it somehow.

Thanks again. Smiley

I think his reason for this is that most if not all of these maps are Q3A maps. Inside each maps pk3
resides a scripts/mapname.arena where gametype, fraglimit and some other map-specific things
are defined. Among them are the bots that are supposed to be loaded by default.
These bots are called by their name which are different from the oa-bots names.
Most of these maps don't have a license that would allow modifying their .arena files i guess.

The best way out would be a list inside OpenArena that would map Q3A bots to their
OpenArena counterparts (This goes for skins too, look at the CPMA-thread to see why).

there's no way any of these can be gpled

1. non-Free textures
2. non-Free sound
3. non-Free skyboxes
4. non-Free license
5. non-Free compiler used to compile it (these are mostly doen from pre-gpl q3map/q3map2)

Interesting, that would be why when I create a skirmish with these maps it seems the only bot listed is Sarge, the rest have "Bot" slots but no bot selected.

Would be cool if it randomly selected bots instead of using a list of pre-determined bots. Smiley !!!!
Is there a way for me to do that? Also, how do I "make a list inside OpenArena that would map Q3A bots to their OpenArena counterparts," like you wrote in your post?

The *rainbow* servers are based in Germany and Sweden, that gives most European player a ping about 50, but as for some german players, down to 6. Cross-Atlantic surfing from America to Europe takes longer routes, hence a higher ping. However, a ping of 120-130 is not what I would consider unreasonably high and render the maps unplayable. There are however other servers running the maps, one of them being The Old Farts Arena which located closer to you, it does however run the Excessive+ modification. There are other players who are experiencing high pings when playing on European servers but that is unfortunately the way things work...
If it gets unbearable there are some of the maps that works with bots on localhost, it's not the same thing as on-line play but it gives less lag Wink

Don't get me wrong: *rainbow* is still very much playable with 130 ping, it's just that I can enjoy myself more playing older maps on servers where I'm guaranteed a ping that doesn't cause a noticeable lag. As you said, it's a shame that it's the way things work, but it's not the end of the world. Either way, I still can enjoy the other maps on servers that place me around 50 ping. I'll be sure to drop by *rainbow* once in a while, though--I'll be sure to bring Steger. ;p
