Kobayashi Maru

This map seems to be very similar to the version released 3 years ago, except the sounds patch is quite a bit bigger. The map very similar, and the shapes patch is identical... the level is still in the spirit of the test it takes its name from.

Show'em that You're a Tiger v2.1

A dramatic enlargement of an old Infinity map... the readme still doesn't make that much sense (it suggests this is a small map), but the level is quite interesting.

First Strike v1.0

Loosely based on the Mystic Base map from the Mystic Map Pak, this is a netmap with a twist... it can (sort of) be played solo. That is, there is a mission, of sorts, laid out by the terms.

Kill Frenzy v1.01

A multilevel arena map, with tweaked physics. I'm not usually a fan of aliens in net games... but in this case, I'd make an exception. The hill is the entire arena floor, and the baddies generally stay down there.

Wheel of Evil v1.0

A huge, organic-feeling map in which 8 people could play with breathing room. More aliens than you can shake a stick at... this one works fine as a solo stress reliever, as well.

Option-Pfhive Millenium Edition

A sounds patcher for Infinity, or M2. (Works with either.) Lots and lots and lots of changes. Some great, some silly... worth a listen.

Marathon Master Scenario Guide v1.0

Ben Potter (creator of Fell, has compiled a list of all solo maps he's played since he discovered Marathon a few years ago, along with some useful statistics about them. (There are over 600 in all.) With the renewed interest in Marathon generated by the Marathon: Open Source project, some folks are revisiting the archives, looking for good, older maps. This list should help narrow the search!

Polyus Maximus

A 1023 poly experiment. It started as a test of the limits of the Aleph One engine. It ended as a very playable single level solo map.

th'shmooze factor v1.0

Another 5D offering from the world's only fisheye aficionado. This one is a small room with 4 pillars... 4 times. Confused? Try playing. And beware... he's shooting for 8 layers.

Trippy Dippy 1.0

A tiny (well, sort of) 5D map with 3 distinct, spatially overlapping areas. Once you've gotten the textures down, it gets a bit less confusing... but it's all small enough that Jinx_tigr's favorite bug (damage in one frame of reference affects those in another) is abundant here. As Pushkin says, "i'd rather be hit over the head with 5d space anyway." Play it! You'll have fun.

ToastMonkey Presents v1.0

A 17-level nethop map with a seriously cool intro level. Most of the individual levels have been released in some form... many have changed pretty radically, though. Get this map for its grandeur alone.

Mission: Improbable

A one level sequel to Legacy of the Tsirc (well, three if you count the info levels at the beginning and the end). J.R. Dobbs is back, as spacey as ever...Laundry ticket? You have to retrieve a laundry ticket? Goodness. Physics tweaks make gameplay amazingly addictive... the hyped-up drones and the seriously dangerious MOAH are good examples. Visuals, are, as per usual for Gloops, stunning. Another winner.

Operation Vengeance

A 13-level scenario which manages to pack every trick and novelty ever devised for Marathon, every slick little piece of eye candy, all into an eminently playable package. Engrossing...

Marathon Map Viewer v1.4.1

This is one of the coolest tools to come along in a long time. It does just what the name would suggest... it allows you to view maps. It works a lot like Forge's visual mode... except it has a few extra features. Up and down motion is supported (shades of Pfhorte's viewer), and maps can be viewed fully-textured down to wireframe, with almost anything in between. It requires OpenGL, a 3D-rendering interface which is becoming quite common. OpenGL on a 3dfx card requires full-screen mode, which the Viewer doesn't support, but if you have an ATI Rage Pro or Rage 128 (or, according to Apple, ...

Marathon 5 Artillery Test

I might have pissed him off...I suggested the last Marathon 5 offering might have been lacking in replay value... this one avoids any such problem by making it nearly impossible to get to the replay stage....

Codex Atlanticus: The Director's Cut

The original version of this map won the Nardo Mapmaking Contest. It was damn good then. It's a whole new ballgame now. The final level in the original, almost a placeholder, is now a full-blown, jaw-dropping piece of work all by itself. Glitches in the first two levels have been ironed out. The storyline, solid before, is now fleshed out, typo-less, and engrossing. Two out-of-the-park homeruns in two days... This guy's someone to keep an eye on.

Legacy of the Tsirc

A really enjoyable single-level scenario. Mapmaking is superb, gameplay is extremely finely tuned for very high adrenaline levels, the plot is nicely worked out.

Chisel: PLATformer v1.0

PLATformer is a Chisel plugin that lets you perform some previously impossible feats with platforms. Demo maps are included. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Teleport Switcher

A short tutorial and a demo map showing how to make user-controllable teleporters... that is, teleporters whose destination is configurable by the player. Pretty slick... download it, use it in your scenario, give Jägermeister credit, and make your players happy.

Unfinished Business, Both Acts v1.2

The first official submission of a map that requires Aleph One, the work-in-progress resulting from the M2 source code release. 8 levels, using several unfinished bits from the Orphanage as a base.
