Another well used theme makes up Tymo’s second Quake map. Progress has been made in all areas from his previous map. This time it’s aimed at 1-on-1 and as such it’s very compact. The layout consists of a tall 3-floored atrium. Surrounding it are some very tight corridors. The most striking thing to me how well the sharp lines of the architecture show up. The thing that helps here though is moody lighting.
Continuing the layout, there is a small basement area with an L shaped teleporter that goes up against the floor and wall. Funny thing is this is the first of two features that I can’t remember where I’ve seen before (anyone who does know, please post). The second is the slightly raised ramp on the topmost floor, which enables you to leap up, grab the RL and let rip with a couple of rockets down below.
There is an abundance of items. The MH is twinned with the RL on the top floor. The YA is near one of the maps two SNG on the 1st floor. You’ll need a similar level of opponent against you to stop it from becoming one sided. It is very easy to keep hold of the YA, MH and RL, and with that you can easily control the level.
Final verdict is that whilst it is polished and plays well, it is, unfortunately, nothing I haven’t seen before.
3.5 out of 5.0

Both appear in the Reincarnation map pack/modification:
-The L-bend teleports appear in Reinc1: "Haemorrhagie" by Gen.
-The slopy ramp is from Reinc2: "Nubian Chicken Sexer" by Gonzo.

paul summed it up well i think:

It's a good map, plays nice, looks quite good, but not neccessarily revolutionary. Well done to Tymo :)

Probably. I'm not sure I've played that one though :)
In the first post, I listed the title of Reinc2 as "Nubian Chicken Sexer" (as it appears in the text file), but the title in-game is "Return of the Sexer".
Warfare3 (the original "Nubian Chicken Sexer") also had the slopes and was released in October of 1998.

yes this was long time before q1_q3dm17, but the best on this level is the amazing cage you to enter and stay before you get the quad. Yeah reinc2 is a really quad whore massacre *g*
