The Voice 1.0

In the author's words, "this is a side trip in the Tempus Irae universe, and may be assumed to take place at any reasonable point during the original storyline."

Stormy Weather v1.0

A simple simplici7y map (meaning it has but 7 polys). Sound's a little funky (there are a couple of polys with no sound, leading to some jarring transitions), but it's got decent flow for a tiny map - be careful, the elevator leading out of the moat isn't as responsive as you might think (it's easy to get spanked down there if you think you're coming up..).

The joy of violent movement v1.0

The first half of an entry that never made it into the Tempus Mapmaking Contest. Movement's pretty linear... but you should be busy enough that you don't even notice. Action was pretty much non-stop... but not so hard I wanted to give up. Nicely laid out - the eye candy is quite good (makes you feel a little better waiting for Gates of Fenris)... mostly, this is just a great adrenaline generator. Give it a run!

"Acid Jazz" for Tempus Irae Final

"Acid Jazz" was originally created for M2 on March 06, 1996 by Fusion/Pfhyde (Zach Norwood). It's been converted for use with Tempus Irae. A very cool, "organically"-designed indoor and outdoor arena with lots of stairs, four levels, a water trap, and some really *outstanding* gameplay.

Assault Island

A large map, playable either as net (without the included physics model) or solo (with it). Map's not merged for easier swapping. A large castle, with a moat around it. Secrets are all over the place... many ways in (though most will require hunting). In solo mode, green stuff (troopers, hunters, etc) are on your side. Find those recharge canisters quickly...

Gettin' to 3rd Base

Released a couple of years ago on Hotline, finally being added to the Archives. A pretty straightforward multi-room map, with a bunch of teleporters to move you around if you don't like taking the long way. Only real problem is that the teleporter pads are quite small... hard to hit 'em right if you're being shot at. (Maybe that was the intention, actually.) One of the rooms is shaped like a baseball diamond, hence the name. Them TI textures are purty!

Shiny Things v1.2

4 maps, with a pretty wide range of gameplay options. Tight-in play, wide open play. Claustrophobic flow, liquid flow. Aliens out the yin-yang, alien-free. One thing these maps have in common... you will NOT run out of ammo. Three of the maps use the Pfhor textureset, and generally do a pretty good job of it. The last is a huge waterset map, with almost all types of gameplay included... everyone should be able to find an area they like. Definitely worth a look.

While I Was Waiting v1.1

A single-level solo map for the Tempus Irae textureset. This was built because the author wanted to play with the set, and he's done a nice job of showing off the beauty of those textures. There's no plot... you simply have to get to the end. There are a few minor problems (mostly sticky polys), and gameplay has taken a backseat to eye candy... but all in all, a very playable level. Hard, but plenty of health canisters, and ammo. Structurally beautiful. Absolutely worth an adrenaline-packed chunk of your time.

Mission: Improbable

A one level sequel to Legacy of the Tsirc (well, three if you count the info levels at the beginning and the end). J.R. Dobbs is back, as spacey as ever...Laundry ticket? You have to retrieve a laundry ticket? Goodness. Physics tweaks make gameplay amazingly addictive... the hyped-up drones and the seriously dangerious MOAH are good examples. Visuals, are, as per usual for Gloops, stunning. Another winner.

Codex Atlanticus: The Director's Cut

The original version of this map won the Nardo Mapmaking Contest. It was damn good then. It's a whole new ballgame now. The final level in the original, almost a placeholder, is now a full-blown, jaw-dropping piece of work all by itself. Glitches in the first two levels have been ironed out. The storyline, solid before, is now fleshed out, typo-less, and engrossing. Two out-of-the-park homeruns in two days... This guy's someone to keep an eye on.

A Night in Venice

A large, sprawling level with an open space, surrounded by some simple buildings, surrounded by a moat. Plenty of ammo... but you need a big group to keep this one hopping.

Codex Atlanticus

A beautiful 3-level solo scenario, winner of the Nardo Mapmaking Contest. Bugs are minor (I got stuck on a couple of platforms, terms could use a bit of editing, just little stuff), gameplay is major. If you approach this without thinking, you're gonna die. A lot. If you plan your attacks, and figure out patterns... you're gonna have a blast. While the scenery and attention to detail is astounding (I still can't get over how gorgeous the Tempus Irae world is, and what you can do with it), don't stop and look when you get to a place... you'll die. Kill stuff first, THEN look around. (And if...

Deep Blue

A circular arena with a raised corridor around the outside. Lots of vacbobs, lots of minipfhor... and the entire place (including the raised corridor) gets flooded every minute or so. I guess there are plenty of SMGs to compensate...


A followup to Mare Ceti and an entry into the Nardo mapmaking contest, this is a beautiful level that gets a bit ambitious in its storyline. Eye candy all around... and one of the first maps I've seen to make use of the ultra-cool tool, Cinemascope. (Whoa, too many links in one description.) Get this: it won't take you that long to finish, but it's fun.

The Mute

A gorgeous net map, second place winner in the Nardo Mapmaking Contest. Although some of it seems claustrophobic, there are several larger areas, and flow from one area to the next is quite good. Vertical angles, while steep, in no way impeded us from killing one another. The attention to detail is fantastic; if you've always wanted to die in some beautiful garden, this is the place. Check it out!

The Stadium v1.0

Originally released as part of the Some More Lh'owon, this level has been slightly modified (and retextured with Tempus Irae textures), but it is still a blast to play. Reminiscent of a classic M1 net level, Circular Death... gameplay is fast and furious. Try it out with more than 3... carnage rates will go through the roof!

Total Workout

A deceptively simple arena. There doesn't look like there is anywhere to hide... until you start playing. Author says it's designed for Tag... but carnage works well, too. Lots of open space, interesting texture usage. (Hint... it's all there for a reason.) Fits all sizes comfortably, from 2 up.

Blood and Steel v1.0

A very nice large arena, with a fast-moving peripheral ring. Two rechargers in the center, but if your opponents are any good, you won't be able to use them. In solo mode, the aliens give you a nice run for your money... troopers and hunters regenerate at absurd rates, but enforcers and fighters are on your side to help out. (Careful, though... there are enough enforcers that friendly fire is a real hazard.) Attractive design, and great flow.

Round the Darklin' Tree

A small circular killing field, surrounded by an outer ring and filled with just enough stuff to make life interesting. Lots and lots of invisibilities... Pass through the center to kill the lights, pass into (or out of) the outer ring to bring 'em back up. For added fun, the Tempus Choir is replaced by Alvin and the Chipmunks. A fast-paced blast.
