Mpterra2 Map

On the Quake3World forums, a user named White Zone posted an overhead map of the Quake III: Team Arena mpterra2 map in this thread. I took the liberty of mirroring the image here, since I know how these things have a tendency to "disappear". Mpterra2 is the big snowy terrain map in Q3:TA. The overhead view will definitely help you figure out what's going on.

OMF: Battlegrounds First Look

3D Action Planet has a first look at One Must Fall: Battlegrounds. Back in the day, I used to play more than my share of OMF: 2097 and have been waiting what seems like an eternity for a follow-up. This article is basically a summary of all the information on the official OMF site, but if you've never heard of the game before, it'll help bring you up to speed. Thanks Shugashack.

Visor in Linux

All Linux Devices explains how to sync your Handspring Visor in Linux. Basically it involves making sure that your kernel supports USB. I know Mandrake 7.2's kernel supports it, I'm definitely going to try to get it working--especially now that I have a USB mouse too. Thanks Linux Today.

Q3:TA First Impressions

Yesterday I bought myself a new computer desk (very nice!), a USB trackball, and Quake III: Team Arena. My first impressions of Q3:TA are pretty amazing. Every map I load up, I say "Wow!" The terrain maps are HUGE, especially the winter one. The smaller maps are incredibly detailed and ready for some fast-paced CTF. The prox mine launcher and the new nailgun are decent enough, but the chaingun rules. It makes having the ammo regen power-up more than worthwhile. I plan on playing all the maps a few times, then writing a full review. For now, I'll just say this: Best Buy has Q3:TA for $17.99. You have no excuse. Go buy it, then thank me later.

The Master comments: I'm in complete agreement with A.T. on this one. The maps in Q3A:TA are awsome, and there is one outdoor terrain map that is just awesome to play. I'd love to get a server big enough to get a LOT of bots on some of these outdoor maps and just RUMBLE. Whee :-)

UPDATE! id's Todd Hollenshead updated his .plan with word that Q3:TA is also available from CompUSA for $17.99. Don't think of it as spending money, think of it as helping the economy!
