    What is the worst Unreal custom map you ever played? For me it is probably ohno.unr, it is really a what the hell map. (if you are curious you can download it, if you cannot find it anywhere it is still on fileplanet, but I think other sites have it as well)

    Worst would probably be the mappacks that fail to run at all, with the infamous message "cannot find package....", atleast most of them got purged with the death of nalicity1.0

    Anyway lets see so far:
    dark2 -> modified dark arena.... infact the only thing modified was every texture changed into an xfx.utx texture
    flotsam and jetsam -> an LSD trip gone bad
    woopers maps -> almost anything by wooper, no reason to explain
    CMS mappack -> not necessarely that the maps were that bad, but oh god... the music! (oh why use a cellphone RINGTONE tune as a music track?!?)

    Never played dark2 and flotsam and jetsam, probably will try some day. And wooper and klingon maps I played. :p
    He even sent me more of his maps which were not downloadable and the series end in some kind of cliffhanger, in a real one, you are stuck on a cliff. :lol:

    The Hermit or whatever, it was just a small village with a river and that's all. Nothing in it.
    Oh and Jiganara 3.
    And also the SkyCity map made by DavidM, because it is totally awesome making staircases that lead forever to two same positions and when you are in a room with 11 Skaarj Warriors around.

    Yeah I know those maps, but they are not as bad as the other stuff described here I think. :p
    But this is about the worst custom maps you have ever played, so if you didn't play one of those, it is not your fault and you should say maps which you find worst of what you have played of course.

    Is Bufford's Manor the one where there is no exit? I remember running around for twenty minutes after killing all the baddies before giving up.

    Yes. Personally, it is far from being crap.

    I wouldn't say it is crap either. But not having an ending was odd.

    I played a few bad ones in the day, but I can't recall any names.

    I played a map from the mod final worlds where you got some straight corridors but I don't remember the name of the map but this is a mod that uses some PerUnreal weapons and some Deus Ex music and textures in some environments, but some stuff like the monsters AI and some tweaks doesn't worked properly ...

    Not the worst custom map I ever played, but a bad one is surprisingly the Ballad of Ash. It was like the most wacked and weird experience I ever had in Unreal recently.

    This is a really hard question. I can't give a definitive answer.

    I've seen quite a few bad maps, usually experiments or tryouts which for some reasons found their way onto public servers.

    A special mention goes to the old version of Skaarj Tower. This most impressive map was useless for coop servers for quite some time because it was for Unreal 226 only. That was quite disappointing for a otherwise great production of a talented mapper. Fortunately it has been fixed now, with a mutator by Zombie.

    Another mention goes to the entire Redeem your Space pack. This otherwise excellent map pack has Czech only translator messages making it unreadable for the great majority of the international Unreal community. Making it in Czech only was a baaad design decision to begin with...

    Yes, that's right: "Ballad of Ash" - it's sort of weird!
