Nice little classic level. Kind of tight, got stuck here and there, but overall very well put together.

Here is the updated version of this map. It addresses some potential ammo issues at the very end for skill 2 players and a few minor things:

I've lately played JPal's first three levels and they are getting better by each release. Gameplay wise, classic Quake at its best with fun secrets. Looks have that subtle old-school solidness to them. Recommended.

Though as stated in the related Func_ thread by Vorkosigan, picking up the gold key which is tied to ammo spawns crashes the game if you play with QS (0.93.2) - even in the updated version. So I've switched to QSS and went on from there without any problems.

I agree entirely with erc: the first three Jpal maps are all very much of a piece, but each a a little better than the last. This time around, there is more sense of place, and some nice atmosphere especially at the start. The main explore-and-kill portion of the map is very much like the two predecessors, but the climax is much more satisfying. All in all, this is a real step forward.

I try not to read the comments before I play so as not to get an unfair advantage. It was only after I found myself at the end (skill 2), with 0 ammo and low on health and half a dozen of Quake's baddest left to dispatch, that I came back and discovered that there is an updated version with more ammo at the end!

I downloaded it, but after thinking a bit, went into my last save point with the original map and restarted. I replayed the whole level, this time being more conservative and taking a bit more time and ended up finishing it with plenty of armor, health, and ammo to spare.

I just found it interesting that the game had a very different ending when I changed my style of play to match the environment.

Anyway, beautiful map! Much enjoyed!

The link to the updated version should be included in the description.
