3 More For ..::LvL
Been a while, here are 3 more for ..::LvL. Europa II from Kaustic is a re-work of the authors own map and well worth checking out. JonnYReds listings of unique releases is starting the grow.

* Europa II by Kaustic
* EGYZIANA by Rino "JonnYReds"
* COLVMS by Rino "JonnYReds"

Videos and panoramas for all.

In other news, the major code update is progressing - slowly. Some of the map release pages have been updated to use the new code, some are still using the old. Was hoping to have them all over to the new code by now. Life gets in the way sometimes.

Enjoy the update.

Q1SP: A Once Glorious City
Hi everybody, it's been a while since I released a map, so here it is!

This one is actually the first ever map I thought of years ago, a greek themed one where one of the first areas would be the inaccessible entrance of a temple, that you had to get around with in order to get inside. After so many years, I am relieved to have finally put this down.

Q1SP Of Digs09: The Zombie's House
I made this map at the request of my son. It contains my and his ideas. And therefore, perhaps, you will see some awkward things.

The map requires a mod quoth2.2

and an engine with support bsp2 and transparent textures.
For example, quakespasm:

Q1SP: DM6RMX: "The Dark Portal"
I managed to finish an old half-finished map I had sitting around on my computer collecting virtual dust after I got inspired by how healthy and active the community still is after all these years. I've fallen in love with the new tools too, so hopefully there will be more maps after this!

Although this map is based on DM6 - The Dark Zone, it's hard to make out any of the original elements, as I changed the map so much to make way for a compelling single player experience. All skill levels are supported, along with (untested) coop and deathmatch modes.

Here's the file: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OOwMgkum8TF-LZO9DUINPrM7ZnLauGwk
