Most Excellent Map!

ikbase.wad re-visited

ikbase.wad is a remarkable texture wad for Quake I. You will find ikbase.pk3 in:
http://www-personal.umich.edu/~jimw/ClassicFPS/Darkplaces/Texturing/
ikbase.pk3 is a nearly complete set of TGA images and Normal images for use with the darkplaces engine. Any map that uses the ikbase.wad will show an improvement in textures. I do not have time to finish some walls, doors and three grates, so I upload ikbase.pk3 as is.

You can find other interesting things at

The best base map I’ve ever played. I’m not the biggest fan of base maps, I think there’s only so much you can do with grunts, enforcers and doges, but the combat in this map is amazingly fun, not to mention the visuals are amazing. I don’t know what caused the first lift to let me up, though. Excellent map, play it!

Enjoyable, but comments about “the best base map ever” suggest that JellyGal hasn’t played Insomnia, not to mention some of the absurdly brilliant recent base maps (see especially the Rubicon Rumble Pack!)

I think this may have been the first appearance of this map’s texture set? If so, then that is another truly remarkable achievement, especially coming so soon after the ikblue textures.

MikeTaylor,

At that point I had not played many base maps I consider to be better (Insomnia, Rubicon series, Slave to a Machine, Concentric Devastation etc). If you look at the comments on CZG’s Research Facility, you’ll see that there was a time when I though that was the best base map, too… :stuck_out_tongue:

Nice map, good-looking textures. The lack of monster variety really holds it back though. Iikka did an admirable job of trying to shake things up with the gameplay and progression but this is begging for a Quoth remake or something.
