As in made with Preacher's written permission.

GO TUX, GO!!!
Preacher gave permission for this version.
As the title of my post suggests, "official"
Good Good Then
but i can't get to that sitesque for 2 days already. is it online? or are there mirrors? :)
The Old Version
is very much fun, haven't really tried the new one yet, been too busy playing cpmctf.
What exactly was wrong in the old version?
Yes we know what the title of your post says, thank you for pointing out the bloody obvious.
The point being, any fool can call anything "official" regardless of whether it is or not. Actually specifying that is was done with permission and approval is a different matter.

Shambler: "Actually specifying that is was done with permission and approval is a different matter."
It's all in the txt file which accompanies the map, ie, the map HAS been approved by Preacher.
I certainly wouldn't call something official unless it was, especially with a map's history like Aerowalk
Vondur: I think the Challenge Network is down. I haven't been able to get to Promode.org for a few days myself:-(
the server running promode.org and other sites like challenge-tv has had a HD failure, a new HF has been donated and they'll be back in a week or so. or so they say.
of you need the cpma files you can try these links:
Since none of us can download the map, we haven't seen the .txt file yet. Not everyone knows you well enough to know that you wouldn't say "official" when it wasn't true.
metlslime said everything i wanted to say but was unable due to lack of brains and other malfuncions of my organism...
...all that vodka you drink
Does this aerowalk remix remain truely faithful to the q1 version? I mean, is it idbase?? :DD~~~
it's mkoxide textures, the lunaran ones. It's a mix betwen aerowalk and aeroq2. It plays really really well IMHO.
I like it hub.
Re: Inertia & Om9zer
Inertia: this is as faithful as scaling in Q3 will allow. Myself & another mapper tried many alternatives to get the GL area as the original, but it's just not possible because of scaling issues with Q3.
The major changes in this one is scaling actually. Items have also been shifted a little more.
Once you play this one, you'll forget about the previous one I released very quickly:-)
om9zer: thankyou! I thought your UT map was pretty damn hot as well mate
Couldn't you have created stairs like the original and then used clipping to create a slope the players can walk up mimmicking the stairs?
as to this scaling issue... I'm getting the impression there is some problem presented in Q3 just by converting an older engine map? What exactly?
different gameplay, different speeds, different player size etc.
If you just convert the original, it wont be the same in q3 as in q1 or q2.
I gotta say, this is the best Aerowalk map to date. The retro textures were a nice choice (I didn't think the last set was fitting), and the gameplay is tuned to perfection. When combined with CPMA, this is one killer map. The mod really enhances the Aerowalk layout, and opens up many new gameplay possibilities never before seen. It definately breathes new life into the map all over again, which is the best compliment you can get.
I guess the only complaint I have is that the lighting could be more moody, but then again, it's made for CPMA so I guess visibility is a larger priority.
I'm having lots of fun on this one, Hub.
