ZDaemon CTF is a series of Capture the Flag mapsets released in 2004/2005. It was a set of maps designed for the then newly-released Capture the Flag gamemode for ZDaemon.

ZDaemon CTF[edit]

This pack was spearheaded in 2004 by Lexi Mayfield (LexiMax), after getting a glimpse of the in-development CTF gamemode for ZDaemon and realizing that they needed maps at release to go with the gamemode. Lexi made MAP02, MAP08, MAP07 and MAP09 before enticing external contributors and rounding out the map pack.

ZDaemon CTF Map Pack II[edit]

The wild success of the CTF gamemode with the release of ZDaemon 1.06 spurred the compilers into assembling a second map pack relatively quickly.

ZDaemon CTF B-Sides[edit]

Before the version of ZDCTF3 that is known today, there was a ZDCTF3 in progress led again by LexiMax. However, there was a perceived dip in the quality of submissions and Lexi's own contribution turned out to be of dubious quality and much too big for standard player-counts. Thus, control of the pack was passed off to EarthQuake, who finished it.

However, a few years later, it was decided to assemble all of the scraps that had been sent from various contributors that never made it into the various packs into one big WAD, as a historical piece.

Anthology CTF[edit]

Anthology CTF is a project by HeX_Vulture that converts all of the ZDaemon CTF maps to use the cross-port CTF Standard that uses custom THING ids, as opposed to the original keycard/particle fountain arrangement. Additional, both Mainstay and No Limits from Map Pack III were updated by LexiMax.
