Marathon olympics is heavily inspired by a map KawaiiPet hosted in 2005.
This is my attempt to re-create that awesome experience.
It is a multiplayer map that should be hosted untimed with the netscript gametype. It has embedded lua.
Notes for version 1.0:
I'd like to add more events to this map eventually, when I get around to it.

Replaces the 2d scenery sprites with 3d models in Marathon 1
Note: works best in shader mode.
Make sure bloom is turned off!
Obviously some errors can't be avoided, but I have done my best to smooth over as many bumps as possible.
Notes for version 1.1:
Changes: Added M1A1 compatibility option, courtesy of thedoctor45. Instructions included.
The transmitter dish in G4 Sunbathing has been replaced with a model that doesn't suck quite as much.

Turn marathon into a turn based strategy game with this lua script.
When hosting, just pick one of the standard gametypes like normal and enable this script. It is not a netscript gametype.
This existed once a long time ago, but I must have loched and deleted it or something.

I've made quite a few scripts for Alpha One over the years and I figured I'd write a guide to help others.
This guide contains all of my secrets for building awesome lua scripts. With it, you too will be able to write beautiful code.
Take it from me, I'm a xpert LUA engineer.

A 17-level single player scenario. The predecessor to Marathon: Phoenix. Many assets for Phoenix came from this, as well as some of the storyline beats, like that of the Renegades and a poorly written evil AI.
This scenario was released back in September 2006. It's hard, and it's not very good; fixes and updates went into Phoenix instead. This is presented just as a historical document, I guess.

Alpha's Redux 2.2
3371-Alpha on Feb 21st 2016
I have patched tim4i's old m1redux weapons plugin for the official Marathon. This plugin replaces the old weapon sprites with HD variants. Some textures have been refined even further from the original using GIMP to edit them. According to Tim4i, you should not unzip this file but I've found it works regardless. All credit goes to both tim4i & herecomethej2000s as this was their original work, I merely patched the file. The original licence restrictions still apply.
-You need OpenGL to run this pack.
-This plugin is for the official Marathon 1 (not M1A1).
-I did NOT get permission from tim4i to create this patch. He hasn't been online since 2012 and left no means of contact. No copyright infringement intended.

Notes for version 2.2:
-Fixed a transparency/eraser mistake I made with the pistol that I didn't fully fix in the last revision.
-Rounded the tip of the assault rifle to make the barrel appear more realistic.
-Antialiased the fusion gun ever further.

POWERS is a new kind of Marathon gameplay. Instead of having an arsenal of weapons, the player carries only what is inside his mind—his POWERS.
POWERS works under Aleph One with any Marathon scenario, and, in theory, any game type. However, the best way to use your new POWERS is with a friend in Co-op mode! New challenges await you in your favorite levels, and you might find that your POWERS even enhance levels you never appreciated before. Just use the POWERS Lua script when you play!
Notes for version 3.0.1:
Total overhaul. See the Readme.

Marathon: Trinity is a brand new scenario/total conversion which explores the cyborg's future in a parallel timeline. Pfhor dominate the galaxy and Earth has been annihilated. Stuck on board the UESC Trinity with an AI named Lysander, you and your fellow colonists discover a habitable planet after over a century of exploring. However, a mysterious ship wreck drifts nearby, which can only mean the worst...

Kill With Style 1.0
W'rkncacnter on Feb 12th 2016
Lua gametype where the faster you're moving when killing someone, the more points you are awarded.
For example, if you kill someone while standing completely still, you get one point. If kill someone while running, you get more points. If you kill someone while running and falling, you get significantly more points. If you launch yourself with a rocket and kill someone while flying through the air, you get even more points.
