Quake 3 Team Arena Map Pack #2 Available
2:43 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Several PC news sources are noting that Paul Jaquays of id Software has announced the availability of a second map pack for Quake 3: Team Arena, the teamplay-based add-on for Quake 3 Arena. As with the first pack, this id-endorsed collection of maps features the work of legendary Q3A map makers, cleaned up and polished to Jaquay's demanding standards. You must have Q3TA installed, as the maps use textures and features only found in that expansion pack. Here is an excerpt from Jaquay's .plan file:

Three months to the day after releasing Team Arena Map Pack 1, we're proud to announce the release of a second map pack for the Quake III Arena game expansion, Quake III: Team Arena. As before, this id-approved map pack contains the work of four mappers from the on-line gaming community. This time, three are conversions of previously released Quake III Arena Capture the Flag maps (Dynatron by Ned Man, Courtyard Conundrum by Casey of Threewave, and Smear Campaign by riscchip). The fourth map (PYRmageddon)is an original map, created for Quake III: Team Arena. These maps have be modified and updated to work with the four Team Arena game types: Capture the Flag, One Flag CTF, Overload, and Harvester.
You can grab the map pack from id Software's FTP site, and we're sure other mirror sites such as FilePlanet will also have local copies soon. A Mac-specific version of Quake 3 Team Arena was never released, but you can purchase the PC version and run it with Mac Q3A (OS 9) version 127g. Just make a new folder in your Quake 3 directory called 'missionpack' and copy the 'PAK0.PK3' from the Team Arena CD into it, then run Team Arena from the "mods" list.

Grab this map pack and take it for a spin, if you have Team Arena; we're sure it adheres to the same high standards as the first. We'll update this article with mirror sites when they appear. We've also linked to a previous article about the first map pack, in case you missed it.
