Obscure / Lowkey CTF wads?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any under-the-radar CTF mapsets that are solidly made, interesting in nature, or just plain fun? I'm interested in finding more for events and would specifically like to run some of the lesser-known wads that may be floating around - the ones that might've missed out on the glory upon release. Additionally, if you have a CTF wad of your own that you'd like seen played publicly I'd be interested in taking a look as well. Can't guarantee anything or everything will be played, but I can guarantee I'll test anything that comes my way (within reason of course.)

Cheers for the help, of course!

Remember the Cutman GvH maps? I think some of those where CTF, I think.. or they might be able to be used as such.

That's the only obscure ones I can think of, heh.

There are old pwads from the first CTF Doom engine called CTFDOOM.exe floating around. They are currently incompatible with any modern engines because they dont have particle effects, team spawns, and use keys as flags. At one point I was converting them all to the CTF standard but abandoned the idea because it was too much work for what are subpar maps that are a relic of their time.

 

Other map packs I am aware of that I rarely see played:

osctfmp 

odactf1

RBCTF (skulltag compatible; has some cool maps and I have not seen it hosted since the Skulltag 97 era)

and of course 32in24-4, 7, and 12 before the good maps were ripped and put into compilation wads.

Im guessing that with CTFDOOM.exe its not as simple as popping a wad into UDB and editing it?

I'd very much like to have this actually, I didn't think there was anything left of the ill-fated velocity II

Would you by chance mind sending over some of those that I can't find after I'm done searching through these? Finding a good bit of material here, and a good bit more that's apparently disappeared from the face of the internet.

Sure that's not a problem, but now that I went over the list again... I'm not entirely sure about one particular wad in there, which is "GL-CTFmap01.wad" (a single map), which I'm unsure if it was ever even publicly released, and not being the author of said wad, I'm not sure if it's right for me to share it...

EDIT: Oh right, I have edited my previous post with the list to include links to any wad I could still find online.
