DM-MF-TheLongestYard Released

In what could be one of the best Quake3 to UT2004 conversions to date, Moonflyer has released a stunning remake of the classic Quake3 map, The Longest Yard. The map was built entirely from scratch, and abounds with custom meshes and textures. If you're looking for some old-school DeathMatch action, this map belongs on your hard drive right away.
Several download links are in this thread.

Wow, a conversion of the most worthless map that came with the most worthless game id software has ever created.

The conversions are nice though.

I like the quake3 conversions, i think the Unreal style on these quake layouts provides for a nice experience.

there has been a remake of this long before.. the actual map file name was DM-q3dm17 , not "the longest yard".. it was the same exact conversion, except from a lot longer back.


btw, it doesnt play good at all in 2k4.. a waste of time truly.

This is a much better remake on the 2k* engine than the earlier one.

I didn't much like the flak in there for the shotgun (only played the beta, so this might've changed), but it plays very, very nicely. Especially for Instagib 1-on-1.

Yeah, it still plays best in Q3. This is a good port though.

More ignorance. This is a totally different map than the one you're referring to. The scaling, textures, weapon placement - all different. You're right though the 2K3 remakes didn't play well at all. This one however plays great.

Good conversion, good scaling, good play. I like the flak for the shotgun, best choice imho. Of course the lg and rl replace their counterparts properly.

This is absolutely the best remake of a Quake 3 map. Most, if not all, the predecessors just ripped off the entire design and textures, and the weapon balance and item placement are perfect.

Well, if there has to be a remake of vertical vengeance...
Plz, plz plz use a nice texture set.
The ones used in quake3 are PURE HORROR.
Ugly, ugly, ugly :-/

Just because a lot of good games are powerd by quake 3's engine does not make quake 3 a good game it just means quake 3 got a good engine.

Well either you love or hate playing quake3.
I love playing the game, but then again.. I sure as hell ain't no fanboy. And I'm glad I'm not.

Each game has its flaws. Be it a quake or unreal game...

Cool cool remake!

Actually, this is the only UT2004 version I have (except for the one by Likwid) but it's pretty good. Instead of blackness like Q3 original it has dark clouds and haze for a skybox and it works well. I like the black/yellow striped trim and the custom jumppads (more than one design). I also think the scaling is done well to fit the UT2004 movement which results in good gameplay and decent bots. I also like the custom music.
