Hi all!

I made some fixes to q1q3toxicity_beta7 to introduce some little but useful trickjumps, and improve general lighting, gameplay and navigation. Full changelog is in the readme.

Final release includes light improvement, last clipping fixes and a new texture for slime.

Thanks everyone that helped me on this project!

This map is part of ProjectQ1Q3 by Mick.

Working to fix the fps drops. They weren't that bad on my pc, so I thought it was normal.

Mick, is monsoon.wad missing from the github repo? Or should I point it at a different .wad?

tried beta2.
fps issues are almost fixed. i still get lower fps when standing at the yellow armor, especially in the corner.

when loading the map in ezquake, /map q1q3toxfix_b2, ezquake wont load it. gives error:
bonus item fell out of level at -992 1944 1216

check the bsp with bsputil? im really a noob in this

also, can you fix something that imo breaks the gameplay in this map? at red, remove height on the slime pools - the player falls inside, its annoying (dunno how it works in the original version)

Thank you, I will do that with next version, just to avoid having the same file going around with two different names.

Any idea of what could be causing that?

That's kinda strange because I don't get that error at all. Looks like the item you're referring to is this.

On my ezquake it's there and working.

EDIT.
I checked the version running on the servers and yes, those two health packs fall off the map. I don't know why that doesn't occur on my PC with the same file, but I'm working to fix it.

I agree it's annoying, but it was there in the original version. I raised the floor of slime pools in beta 1 so that the player can still see around him.
Could remove height, but I'm trying to stay close to the original concept of the map, where slime pools were supposted to be an annoying trap to avoid.

New version in top post.
I'm really sorry about the problems of the previous versions caused by me not being experienced and rushing things. Hope this one works well.

You should really push the changes to github. And keep the releases there as well.

Hi Thuriam
Something to consider maybe have slime (toxic?), reason is slime is less punishing if you have those obstacles there for someone messing around them (ref. Toxicity_test). Thanks for the conversion. Was interesting map!

Is this the version that is going to be used in Thunderdome or the terrible version with 2xLG, 2xMH, 3xYA and 0xRA

Also why is it Lava and not Slime? Definitely needs to be slime on this map

Nice looking map. I was going to learn it but then I spotted a major problem. Many of the items are positioned above an embossed symbol. This means that a rocket or grenade will often do zero damage if it explodes within a groove. This will obviously happen often as it's common to shoot the floor below an item as an opponent is about to take it.

This is really an issue with Quakeworld and the way that it handles explosions. But until it's changed it's best that map builders avoid carving small details into surfaces.
