Wow, amazing map. Now imagine that with Darkplaces' wonderful snow and fog. :)

Shame about all the fullbright pixels on the monster skins though.

I don't understand, I don't see a bsp file, or any files that enable this game. What is going on?

Read the alk15.txt file. ;)
Here is how you apply such commandline options in Windows (use the "-game alk15 +map alk15":

It was a nice point the new re-textured monsters, i liked this map a lot, but i do think it isn't as beautiful or as hard-worked in gameplay as other ''alk'' maps (and i miss too the jumping ogre from alk11 :D). Secrets were hard to find, but i liked the health-pack one.

The map was... decent. I think a big part of why I didn't come away from it with a particularly positive opinion was the glitches, unfortunately. For me, on Quakespasm, the nailgun sound was glitchy, and as others have mentioned the monster reskins have issues with fullbright textures.

I also feel that the layout of the level leaves a bit to be desired, as I tend not to get lost in the alk maps but I found myself spending a good minute or so wandering around at a few points in this one.

Still, I overall did enjoy my time with this map.

A welcome step up from alk12 and alk13 -- but not, for me, back up to the heights of the early alk maps. I'm scoring this three stars, but at least it's a good three stars this time, rather than the grudging three stars I awarded to alk13. The snowy textures make a nice change, although some of the reskinned monsters don't quite work. (The fullbright pixels on the new scrag skin are particularly jarring.)

I liked it rather a lot, though the second level seemed a bit abbreviated.
