Levelpedia, a user-maintained database of singleplayer first person shooter levels, has opened its doors. The site has over 1300 entries already and they encourage the use of file sharing to help distribute gaming files. There are currently files from nearly all of the Unreal series.

The site is currently looking for people to manage different games and also somebody to add some functionality. You can read the entire press release for more details.

PRESS RELEASE
Sunday 6 March 2005
Levelpedia.org Launches

This week sees the official launch of a new community database/website, designed to supply information about single player first person shooters levels. Unlike other websites, Levelpedia.org is only interested in released files. No files are hosted, meaning costs are reduced to a minimum, hopefully ensuring its long term existence.

The database can be edited by everyone, safe guards are in place, and each file contains two views; simple and detailed. The site is looking for committed staff, whose tasks include site promotion and monitoring the database and forum activity.

Although the site currently has over 1300 records, most are incomplete with regard to release date, author and download links. The current data should be viewed as a starting point rather than a definitive list. Also the current list of games that have files associated with them is very limited and we will add any game, assuming it's an SP FPS, requested by users.

The site would also like to encourage the use of file sharing to help distribute gaming files.

The site contains everything you need to know to get started, so what are you waiting for? Get involved!

God that is one hideous site design. Nothing Unreal or game related in the design either. :( Seems like a cool idea though. Basically all it does is provide links to SP maps.
