Q1SP � Tchak (the Tomb Of Chak Toh Ich�ak)
This is a new single player from scratch with a mix of lots of textures, but the intension was to create a small Maya city and i think they worked well together.

huge thks to Necros(lights teaching), Negke(brushwork and gameplay), Ijed(brushwork and gameplay) and NahkahiiR(gameplay)!

The map is near maxsurfaces limit, but work in all engines.

I added a skybox because some people in here like to play with one, personally i don�t use skyboxes, i tried many in this map and none fit properly, so don�t complain about the one i choose.

My Love Trinca 
Hi, im a big african guy and i just love trincas maps!! oh and i love him too, his so sexy... i love his nalgas =) he just loves to take up the nalgas from me... hes so sweet. 
 
The shots look so sweet. I'm glad to see this released 
 
this is an excellent map! texture set that isn't used often and consistent brushwork style. fun fights. only one fight was over the top, where i had to cheat to avoid death. i think i missed some weapons or something though, so that would have made it a lot easier and probably wouldn't have had to cheat.

demo: http://www.quaketastic.com/upload/files/demos/ne_tchak.dz
(trying out willem's new file site!) 
Doh 
i cnp'ed the link and forgot the write the rest before i submitted. 9_9

anyway:

i think the initial fight when you first start is a little rough, i blundered into a second group of monsters and almost died right at the start. even then it was a lot of fun because there's plenty of room to maneuver and you have a good chance to surviving. ammo was pretty good, seemed like there was just enough to get by so i had to be smart about my shots but it wasn't to the point of being annoying.

i like the big open rooms with all the shalraths. those are a lot of fun, constant movement instead of just ducking in and out.

also the big sweeping curved roofs look great and there was a great use of trim.

nice job with this release :) 
 
Really awesome job Trinca, you have been mentioning this map a whole lot, and all the hard work has paid off! I died after I entered the room "Its a trap!" but I played through with cheats. Really beautiful architecture, and the skybox looked good too. This is definitely an inspiring piece. 
YES 
gOOD MAP. wELL DONE ALL ROUND, DESIGN AND GAMEPLAY. vERY ARENA-ESQUE, CAN SEE IT'S TRINCA GAMEPLAY. oNLY CRITICISM IS THAT SOME BIGGER BATTLES WERE HARD FIRST GO BUT MUCH EASIER WITH FORE-KNOWLEDGE. i DIED ON SOMETHING OR OTHER. dEMO LATER. 
Shambler 
you'll wear out your caps lock key :)

where's the skybox? it's not in the zip file? 
No Skybox... 
But this map is pure sexy without it! A few of my highlights are:

* Those ruby red eyes on the walls -- I shot at every one of them :)

* The great architecture throughout. I initially didn't like such a curvy look from the early screenshots, but it really worked.

* Those massive fire pillar thingies in the courtyard.

* The carvings atop the pyramid.

* Fair gameplay. There weren't any overwhelming hoard combat situations without ample space to move around in.

I played for 42 minutes and only found 1 secret.

GREAT JOB TRINCA! YOU ARE A NOOB NO MORE! 
Thumbs Up 
I'd be surprised if this didn't enter the top ten.

I didn't live long, partly because everything was a bit hard to see and partly because Quake's shotguns are damn useless. Partly because it's very late at night, too.

I played on using godmode, like st3ady, and it's really a very impressive map. Even so, I did get lost after picking up the second rune - I ended up going in circles, so I quit. I'll replay this for sure, though.

This map is rather new school in a lot of ways, so the stock Quake combat stood out as the main thing that bugged me. I'm not saying you should have used Quoth - just something like Cranked or similar tweaks (for example SSG or axe gibbing zombies) could really send this map over the top.

The use of detail textures or trim (skulls, paintings/mosaics, door frames etc) stood out and made everything look neat. The tomb feel is really there.

Monster placement is also very good, like others said, especially the fiends and vores and the little groups of monsters.

Just a rock solid map, personally I think this is the best Quake map in a long time.

Thanks. 
Congrats On The Map Trinca, 
I'll play it and comment on it Sunday, gotta big day tommorrowz. I saw your IM pop up earlier this evening, but I was poppin' one off with a DVD of The Queen in the PC, responding at the time would have been weird. Cheers! 
Trinca 
Looks Awesome will play tomorrow! love your maps, and from what I'm reading this ought to be the crowning achievement.

Headthump...
Wow. 
Great 
to see your map released. Will play it soon.
if I can drench me out of that Quoth hell. 
 
O Brasil agradece o amor com o quake trinca! ;) 
 
Amazing work, Trinca! I love the curvy bits. Definitely a solid level, both gameplay and design wise.

I love the outside temple area and trying to induce the necessary in-fighting. Great job! 
 
thks guys ;) ~

the testers made this much much better

in lights... is like from day to night...

p.s-> thks necros ;)

skybox is in

http://kell.quaddicted.com

since kell is our huge Quake mapper friend i think u guys should download from is page :) 
Download It Now 
trinca != n00b. 
Trinca 
kell's page only has one 77MB download for all skyboxes, not individual ones.

Anyway, map is pure class. Easily your best both visually and gameplay wise. 'Majestic' was the word that first came to mind. You really got the atmosphere right with the lighting I think and the texturing/brushwork combination was excellent too.

Gameplay wise its quite fun without being too hordey like some of your previous maps, tough but not frustrating. 
A Winner ! 
This map rocks !

Definitely a new classical map !

Thanks man ! 
Fantastic! 
Very very good Trinca!

As others has said, this is an exelent release. Curvy and lots of trim and good design.
Lighting is fantastic as well.
Gameplay is good and fun.

Overall your best map yet.
Looking forward for more of this kind in the future.

Love it! 
Very Good Map 
It is a great map Trinca and you should be proud of it. Everything was done very well: the architecture, ligthning and the gameplay.
I liked the combats a lot, always on the edge. The ammo situation made me nervous through the whole map though. In the end it was always enough. Also keepeng the GL away from the player for such a long time worked very well. You have managed to make me nervous again :)
I liked the way you set up the combats. You lead me from one big encounter to another. And I kneew that after grabbing each rune there will be a lot of action.
I have recorded my 2 first tries for you.
http://www.quaketastic.com/upload/files/demos/tchak_demos_ankh.zip
I repeat myself. It is a great map with nice style and atmosphere. 
Very good map, challenging .. a lot of surprise monster placements made it hard to ever have that "safe" feeling.

I must have had 4 health and 0 ammo for 35% of playing the map ;) 
 
Great job! This is the longest and most intense map I've played in quite a while.
Had fun trying to sneak by getting the first rune with 16 health, where I died a few times, but then was able to beat it from that point :) Fiends and the spawns made me jump a few times, too.
Enjoyed it a lot, and thought the theme/texturing/architecture worked very well as others have said. 
 
wow, I am really impressed. usually I do not like these egyptian/mayan themed levels much, but this one has such a great lighting and gameplay, good details+scary brushwork (zombie tunnel under atrium, how lovecraftian). I have seen first few rooms only, but screenshots are VERY promising, looking forward for evening to crawl through the rest of this tomb, thanks! 
Trinca 
Definitely your best map. Nothing to add that has not been said already: good map, good ambience, good gameplay, good architecture, awesome lightning effects... Well, no go map and sort out a better one ;)
Thanks for the fun !!
