ThunderWalker CTF is
one of the oldest modification of Threewave CTF and is the most popular. TW began as a few
minor server modification on a single server last October, and has grown into a partial
conversion that is running on dozens of Quake servers. Marc
"]" Rittierodt and Robert
"Fezzik" Hayden are the
creators of this mod.
The popularity of ThunderWalker, and the
hostility that is still shown towards it, can be traced to the dramatic changes that have
been made to Threewave CTF. Previous versions of TW have include several new weapons, new
runes, dozens of new sounds, and a great collection of maps. The custom weapons for TW
include a faster shotgun, a remodeled double-barrel shotgun, a laser rifle, a weaker
Rocket Launcher, and a sniper rifle. The custom runes include Vampire, Protection,
Cloaking, and Living Armor.
All-Star CTF will include the premiere of
version 4 of ThunderWalker CTF. ThunderWalker 4 will be familiar to fans of TW, but also
includes several changes. Most noticeably, TW 4.0 adds another episode of custom CTF
levels. Like the previous ThunderWalker episode, this second collection of maps contains
some of the best custom CTF maps created by the Quake community.
