I plan on getting my act together with this blog over the coming weeks. Stay tuned! There’s quite a bit happening in the Quake scene right now and I want to help get more people involved and in the know.
New episode of my tutorial series.
Take a look! This is just the first in a series.
There’s lots going on in the Quake community right now. The SP custom map count for 2017 clocked in at 115. Coming off the holidays alone we have Xmas Jam and Arcane Dimensions 1.7 That’s 13 new SP maps right there. And a Christmas Eve stealth release as well.
I think 2018 is going to be an even bigger year than 2017. I hope to post more content regularly, including mapping tutorials for Trenchbroom 2.0 is the next few months. Stay tuned.
My entry for SM179 was well-received. Screenshots below. You can download the entire Jam here. There are some really creative maps in this pack so it’s well worth trying out. More info at func_msgboard here. Making a fully playable map in 24 hours that’s actually fun is very tough. There are always things you want to add and the clock is an insane master. I built the map in two sessions. A Friday evening and most of a Saturday afternoon. It was a blast. I am already re-working this map to add some gameplay I wanted in but ran out of time. Also, the teleporters are a bit confusing so I have some plans help guide the player. I plan on adding deathmatch starts to this as it’s really designed from the ground up to be both single and multiplayer. I should have a new version in the next week or so.
If you love Quake you need to subscribe to Arrcee’s channel. Here’s a video that includes my Map Jam 9 map. My map starts about 56 minutes in but the whole video is well worth your time!!
15 maps to celebrate 15 years since “Contract Revoked” was released.
