this is the best made out of Quake 1
I�ve ever seen.
Rubicon2�s "A thousand years into the past" is a glimpse of what he did here, especially the Saint One.
I�ve no words for this!!!
Thank You, CZG!!!
(sorry Than, you�re only 2nd..)

sorry for taking so goddamn long, I've been building up to an exam I write this Wednesday. I've played this and Scampie's new release and they were both brilliant, so it is coming. I especially admire the "stacked layout" style of these maps, the layouts are so brilliant and despite the complexity you know where to go - and then you find yourself re-entering a familiar area but from a new angle. The end was good too, since it's a 20 (or 30) year cliche running to beat the boss and save the world. But real review, no more than a week.
Thank You, CZG!

That's a very nice look you've crafted there... makes me want to try it on some of my other favorite maps.
Finally Got A Taste Of Honey

What's the rule here on bumping old threads? If it's a problem, then let me know and I won't do it again.
I've seen Honey mentioned a few times since partaking in the Quake community and I've seen czg discussed many times, but I still wasn't sure what to expect. I finally decided to try this on the recommendation of mfx after mentioning how much I liked ad_swampy and ad_crucial. The previous posts here already sum up my thoughts and there's nothing that I can add in addition to chiming in and saying that this was really damn good.
I played the grenade/rocket key map first and it was my favorite of the two. The concept that you painted of this absolutely massive abandoned underground complex was executed so well. I immediately found myself looking up and down and admiring the beauty of being surrounded by this ominous void in either direction.
What stood out to me the most that all of this was accomplished without tons of minute brushwork. I didn't notice much in the way of fancy trim or fine detail. It's a very different approach to creating a beautiful map. This was all about atmosphere and it was pulled off so well. I was especially impressed with the changes in lighting and fog when entering and exiting certain areas.
The ending was amazing in contrast to the serious tone of the maps. It was heartwarming and I particularly enjoyed the credits music. I could go on for a while about how much I liked this set but I'll wrap it up. What a fantastic way to say goodbye to the community. It's a shame that we won't see more czg maps but fortunately for me, I still have more to explore, not to mention that this pack has a lot of replay value even if only to admire the architecture and ambiance of the maps. Even though you won't see this post, thanks all the same for the experience.

I'm sure czg appreciates any feedback is always welcome no matter how necroposted. Who knows, maybe he'll read it and decide to make another map.
In the mean time, since you already checked out Honey theme, if you like fog and mood, check out

Thanks Qmaster. I'm pretty stoked about the recommendation because after Honey ended, I really wanted to see more in that style. I'll be checking this one out soon. I'll be surprised if I get similar vibes from it considering how much older it is but maybe it will be right up my alley.

Check these out, Poorchop:
Apart from Honey itself, there's plenty of Honey-inspired maps at the other end of this link - not made by czg, sadly, but by other talented mappers.
CDA is very good and moody AF but feels quite different from Honey in ambience, architecture & gameplay. If you like it, there's a sequel here
. Oh, and my personal fav by JPL is The Five Rivers Land
, inspired by Doom 3's hell maps.

Bear in mind, when this was released in 2012 - it was not seen as a minimalist map in terms of brush detail, in fact it was a visual feast, what with all the broken ruins stuff, chains, fiddly railings, huge draw distances.
So not so much a "different approach", because all this modern "60,000 brushes or gtfo" thing happened well after Honey's release.

Do yourself a favor and play "Probable Carcinogen" from Jam 1. One of the coolest maps I've ever played by Ionous and mfx.

func_mapjam1 was all about creating a Honey themed map, so you'll want to check all of those out poorchop.

I don't think jam1 needed to be mentioned a 3rd time when it's already been linked to twice in the last 6 posts...
Just Replayed It

...and its still one of the best Quake maps ever made. It is so good that mapjam1 picked up the theme for us. So that we players are able to enjoy it even more.
