Jet Li/In the Walls

An experiment, more than anything. The map is really just there to show off the physics model. Walkfing's faster, running messes with gravity... pistols shoot rockets (although they still do bullet damage-big difference is if you shoot a close wall, you can die, unlike your standard pistols). If you're interested in making an urban combat map, and don't feel like starting from scratch, this might be a help.

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy v1.0.1

A double-level oval, with a few nooks and crannies, and a large open sewage pool in the center. Quite open, yet lots of cover. Larger groups might find it tight, but less than five should have room to breathe. Nice lighting, good weapons placement (though a little tight on ammo)... a worthwhile download. Update adds a second level that allows more reasonable KTMWTB play.

Burning Clutch v1.0

My goodness. 8 rooms, 8 layers. 328 polygons of goodness. You could probably come up with a more convoluted use for 5D space... but it would involve small dark men in overcoats, and octopi.

Evil-Empty Faces 0.65

A very large, multilevel netmap. It's actually quite playable solo, due to the huge numbers of Devlins and drones... if baddies are turned on for a netgame, hill games become insane.

Mars Needs Carnage v1.0

Amazing. 4 and a half years after the release of the original Marathon, maps are still being made for that engine. This is a small map that crosses parts of Mars Needs Women and Carnage Palace Deeluxe. Flow is quite good, and the map is familiar enough (yet different) to those who played Marathon in the early days that getting around is second nature. Definitely worth a look!

Sincerely Me

A small net map, originally created for the Simplici7y contest (and so containing only 7 polys). Play is fast and furious, made moreso by two turret guns whcih cover roughly 65% of the small area. Included are two films, showing the level off. Amazing what you can do with 7 polys.

Warm and TOZT

A large, square arena with a bridgelike structure in the center (over a lava pool). Most action takes place on the ledge around the outside, or down on the floor. Elevators are nice and fast... mix of open and closed spaces. Archive size is due to a number of screenshots. Map is unmerged, on purpose.

First Invasion

6 levels, with three being variations on a theme. The overall feeling is confusion... darkness, lots of repeating textures, death from seemingly nowhere. Oh... and watch those physics models.

Garden Hill 1.5

Another huge arena (better suited for the Aleph One engine, which won't smear with distances like this). A huge courtyard surrounds a large double-layered tower. Tight on ammo, but plenty of room to run.

Pool of Happyness

A large, sewage-filled arena with some tunnels around the outside. Slight smearing problems (nonexistent under Aleph One). Weapons are all around the outside ring, so head right out at the start.

Simplici7y Contest Winners

On April 17, 2000, announced a contest whereby entrants had to create maps that used exactly 7 polygons. Almost 50 entries came in, most quite interesting. The winning 7 Entries won prizes...

Broadcasting Carnage 1.5

A huge open waterfilled arena, with a funky cross in the center. So big that you get smearing under Infinity (although it plays fine under Aleph One). Ammo is a bit tight (would be okay for two or three, but the map is big enough for 5+). Some fun untextured wall tricks. Flow needs work.

Madman's Maps v0.5.4

20 levels, mostly small to medium-sized. Architecture and lighting can be very entertaining. Some are a bit odd (and would be very difficult to play in net games for any length of time), but ALL are interesting, and have some great ideas.

Benad's Net Maps

Four levels, mostly small (well, except the last one). The first level is the only marathon level EVER to make me seasick. Be warned. Other levels: The Big Donut will make your eyes bleed, if you're not careful... lava everywhere.

Kito Carnage

Very simple map, with a large water column in the middle (it's where you start), an opening to the outside ring about halfway up, and a wall surrounding it that you can climb for bigger weapons.

Place Your Bets! v2.0

A non-participatory arena for up to eight people. Switches open doors at either end, freeing "teams" of monsters (bobs and S'pht'Kr on one end, everyone else on the other).

Balance of Terror v1.2

Hmm... this one's not really classifiable. It's designed as a teams map, with very fixed goals. On the plus side, the goals seem pretty cool, the level design is quite good.

Show'em that You're a Tiger v2.1

A dramatic enlargement of an old Infinity map... the readme still doesn't make that much sense (it suggests this is a small map), but the level is quite interesting.

First Strike v1.0

Loosely based on the Mystic Base map from the Mystic Map Pak, this is a netmap with a twist... it can (sort of) be played solo. That is, there is a mission, of sorts, laid out by the terms.
