This is an interesting post from John Romero in response to Tim Willits taking credit for inventing multiplayer only maps and even taking creadit for QuakeCon’s existence. WTF? A juicy story any way you look at it!
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.

Work is letting up a bit so I will be hopefully completing this single player map soon. It’s been in development off and on for well over a year. Mostly off. More screens here.
