    My suggestions, for this time, are not real novelties. Everybody should now these buggers :tup: :

    CTF-DeNovo
    THE CTF map that i can always and ever recommend! Absolutely awesome in theme, and with great gameplay in asimmetric layout.

    CTF-Phobos][
    Other great CTF. I don't like the original DM, but this expanded CTF version is pleasant to play. Keeps and expands the DM layout, including 2 sniper towers.

    DM-Deck_40
    This is, to my opinion, the only good Deck convertion (partially because it goes away from the original :p ). It makes great use of realistic-looking terrain, and uses a custom freeze texture set, used in Xidia GOLD.

    -
    About FIELDMEDIC suggestions:
    DM-RumblePitt: i was somewhat surprised by this one. Not awesome, but good enough, i think.
    CTF-ProjectX2: this i fully support to go in the list. A great CTF map :tup: .
    DOM-Syncronicity: i happen to have tested version ][. It's great. I recommend version ][ over the first. A great one in anyway, 1rst or 2nd!

    There are a very lot of map that i consider really great (especially for the DM and CTF gametype), but i will submit to your opinion only 3, the ones that immediately "pop up" in my head while thinking about a specific gametype

    Rumble Pitt
    An old map , but i always remember it when thinking about DM , for the "being stuck in asylum" feeling that i always had when playing it, it was a big map that was better with a good amount of bots more than just a classic X axis fight.

    CTF-ProjectX2
    I remember the first time i discovered this map, it was so great to play it with a lot of bots. A rocky open field, several routes, and two Tribes-like bases. Really a good CTF map for me.

    DOM-Synchonicity
    I downloaded very few DOM maps , but from the few i had this one was a keeper for me, i liked the gameplay and the several routes offered for constant action.

    @Nahand suggestions

    -I support the choice of DM-Deck40 , it was the last map i downloaded and it is a great one.
    -About CTF-Phobos][ , i agree , this is a keeper and should be on the list.
    -Same situation for CTF-Denovo , the quake3 feeling of the map (reinforced by Rorshach texture talent) created a very enjoyable CTF map, i vote for this one too.

    @THUGLIFE suggestion
    you know you are supposed to give your opinion on the maps previously suggested too ;)

    -I always liked DM-Relics , one of the very best Angelheart map (along with his great DM-2019 ), i agree that it should be on the list
    -i do not know this DM-AbandonedCity][ , i will download it but i will certainly not have enough time to have an objective opinion on it.

    And as i talked about it
    DM-2019
    It ran very smoothly on my not very high tech system (a surprise for me) , and is really an UT masterpiece on my opinion. I heard that he made an UT2k3/2k4 version of that map. But despite that Angleheart stated it as a beta this UT version is already awesome (with bots and unreal monsters :) ) and should be downloaded by everyone that want to see what UT can look like even if there is a few chance to encounter this map online.

    Sweet! The UT version of Dm-2019! I thought I've never be able to view this one!
    :clap:

    Btw: ctf-projectx.. hmm.. I've had some boring bot games on that one. Took too damn long to cap flags.

    DM-Amon by Hourences

    I've always liked the visuals, sound and flow of this one, and at Uni it used to drive one of my housemates mad, 'cos I tended to win. :)

    ... i'll not 'rate' them. Just give an opinion. Favorable opinions about a map BY MOST READERS will make it to the list.

    I'm not too sure about your suggestions. They tend to be gameplay blocking, especially Ruins (unfortunately). It is a novelty to me the DM-2019 map (how could i miss it o_0), but the UT2003 (?) version is DM-2049 i think...

    DM-Amon, good.

    I agree, DM-Amon is indeed a very good map.

    By any chance , do you know a link to that unreal map better than the UT version ?
    The only "blade runner" inspired map i found for unreal is this one (it works on Ut by the way when you rename the dmbladeruner224.unr to dm-bladerunner224.unr) and has nothing in common with dm-2019 (minus the blade runner inspiration of course)

    CTF-Aquamarina and CTF-AquamarinaX32 (I personally prefer the first one). Totally awesome maps by Chicoverde. That guy is amazong. The visuals, sounds, and gameplay are all top-notch. Amazingly atmospheric, even for a CTF map.

    CTF-Big-CASTLE][. An ENORMOUS, EXTREMELY-DETAID map which has great gameplay too. The only problem I have with it is the lag, but that's just because I'm still running a 32MB card. Most people should be able to run this without problems. It's a great map.

    CTF-Conquest. Love this one. Excellent gameplay; very tough to get the flag. You MUST strategize with this map.

    CTF-Eagles. Oh man the gameplay soars in this map. While the visuals aren't great, you will have loads of fun trying to get the enemy flag. The lifts aren't as easy of a solution as they may seem; bring loads of bodyguards with you when you storm in.

    CTF-FIFA. Ahahhahaha, for pure entertainment, this one gets on my list. Sure, it may be totally mindless, but it is one of the most fun maps I have ever played. :D

    CTF-Horus. Wow, amazing architecture, excellent gameplay. There's not much wrong with this piece of work. A must-have.

    CTF-NalisAzure][. Damn, what a fine map. Detailed visuals; VERY detailed in a nice Nali setting. But the map is small; however, that doesn't mean you can't load it up with bots for some serious carnage. Not as easy as it may seem to win. Good stuff.

    CTF-ProjectX and ProjectX2. Already discussed. Must have both of these.

    CTF-Shadar. Another by Chicoverde; this is one of the best terrainmaps I have ever played. It lags a bit at points while your rig is still caching all of it if you are still low-to-medium-end like me, but this is hardly a setback.

    CTF-Stronghold and CTF-Stonghold][. Totally awesome maps. The run to the bases may not be incredibly satisfying, but once you get inside with a team of bots with you, and the enemy base is loaded, get ready for some serious firestorming.

    CTF-UnderDark by Shock Systems (geniuses). Hands down the best gameplay I have ever had against bots in CTF. This one is a masterpiece. And the visuals are astounding. Just a few big HOMs are all you may notice, but they are in out-of-the-way places.

    CTF-VandoraLE101 (Wrath of Vandora). Outstanding visuals, great gameplay. I love this map. Get it. Now.

    Waffnuffly post:
    -CTF-Horus, Underdark and Nali's Azure][ :tup: - was going to suggest them next :p
    -ProjectX2 i liked. ProjectX i end up not that much really. Still...

    Also, should we keep the suggetion posts after community decision about the showed maps? It's the only place here to see the pics...
    Or should we edit them after, with new content?

    @THUGLIFE
    Ah, i thought that i had missed an Angelheart map :)
    The unreal map was very big, but a bit too much for an "open" map, i would have loved to see more details inside the buildings (damned prisonner bot).

    @ Nahand
    Yes, but i like previews :D
    I think the suggestions should be kept , as some of those posts had a map preview that can be usefull for people browsing this thread.

    @ Waffnuffly suggestion
    -CTF-Aquamarina/CTF-AquamarinaX32 : those are good maps , i enjoyed them, but the x32 needs lot of bots to be enjoyable.
    -CTF-Conquest : I support this choice , it is a keeper.
    -CTF-FIFA : i disagree , when i had it, the map was fun 5 minutes for me then i deleted it, it should not reach the top list.
    -CTF-Horus. Tons of memories are coming in my brain : great map !
    -CTF-NalisAzure][. I like every Shinigami maps since i enjoyed his arenas from RocketArenaUT.
    -CTF-Shadar. Very good , should be on the final list in my opinion.
    -CTF-UnderDark : greatness , definitively a good map for the list.

    I have not played the other maps suggested yet (i will for some of them that appealed my eyes) , so i will say nothing.

    Eeeh about the bladerunner map for UNREAL.

    Tip: DON'T download this piece of crap.

    It has HUGE OPEN AREAS, it lags incredibly, it has weapons/stuff randomly thrown around, awfull lighthing, ... it's a waste of space. Honest.. believe me.
    Games on this map don't look like they'll be a lot of fun.


    Anyway, I've always liked this map:

    Dm-SnowingAngels (I'll update this with a link to UTCMS, site loads too slow for me now)

    Edit: Looks like they have problems with the site.

    Edit: Link is up :O)

    Well, that's just it. I can't possible look upon this level as a deathmatch one.
    It could be a single player level, for sure.
    Although...

    It's very cramped, true.

    That is why i enjoy it with few bots and monster madness set for Skaarj only : best way to play DM-2019 in my opinion.
    The best way to play most of the UT maps too ;)

    Can't find anymore SnowingAngels , i am sure i have downloaded it the name is known to my memory.
    Perhaps an attached screenshot would be helpfull NeoNite

    It's on UTCMS, and that's it I think. Used to be available on "Headshot".

    A screenshot whew...
    Wonder if I have any "lying" around.

    I'll upload one later.

    Shame about UTCMS not loading now.

    Sad that Headshot disappeared in the internet Oblivion, it was one of my favorite map ressource with good reviews.

    Here is another suggestion
    DM-Q3PlaceofManyDeaths
    Probably my favorite map from the Quake3 retail arenas (it is Q3DM4) and i am pleased by this recreation of it, despite the unfortunate disappearance of the organics decos that would have been difficult to do in the ut engine.

    Some Z axis fights break the classic X axis combat, giving it more intensity (in fact, what is a good Quake3 map) for a UT map.
    Certainly a map for the list in my opinion

    EDIT: added a brighter screenshot, the previous was a lot more darker than the real thing

    Do not die , thread , you have some potential...
    I add 4 maps suggestions

    DM-Empowered][
    A good small Q3 inspired map, Non stop action in this map with few bots. That is all i ask :)
    the first version "DM-Empowered" featured too small room and halls to move correctly.
    DM-Organic
    I remember this map won a mapping contest , just in front of DM-Faith. I always liked the eye candies of this huge map, lots of places to go.
    Perhaps it does not flow like a top map, but certainly a must dowload for the architecture.
    DM-Faith
    Very original map, all in Z axis with lots of invisible platform. Bots played it very well too (i was a bit surprised ,as i thought it would have been difficult for them), i liked this map "what is this unreal place" feeling.
    DM-Frantic
    A great map in my opinion, my bots sessions on it had always been enjoyable.
    There is a good layout and architecture too.
