New Q1 SP: "Jump"
In Gotshun's spectacularly informative own words:"

O.K. Guys New map is at Quaketastic. The zip file is "JUMP" Enjoy

UhHUH.

Alternatively, Jump is a new Q1 SP map in a gloomy medieval brick style featuring both a bit of jumping and a lot fighting toe-to-toe with 135 knights ogres scrags and shamblers. Watch out for solid combat and an interconnected layout.

Retro Jam 5 Is Out Like The Wind!
A brand new, Wind Tunnels themed, retro jam map pack release! But what even is a retro jam?

(...) the original Quake maps still look great in 2016, and the vague idea behind retro jams is to recreate their simplistic beauty.

Featuring maps by Breezeep, Bloughsburgh, ItEndsWithTens, NewHouse, QMaster, Shamblernaut, and someone else OTP won't name with a full wind tunnels map under the name "shambler".

New Q1SP - Gotshun's The "lost" Levels!
Okay, so they never were really "lost" per se, just more a pain for me to grab off his old PC. But that's over now, onto the fun schtuff :)

For those asking for smaller levels these are for you ;) They are old school claustrophobic with perilous tricks and traps.

** Scourge of Armagon(hipnotic) required ***

Slightly more info is in the readme.txt | 16 levels in all located here:

..::LvL Special - What Election?
As an escape for "that" election, here is a ..::LvL update. A fair bunch of maps are included and should be more than enough to keep you away from everything else that is going on.

* Siderea by BLOOD
* Closed by Repairs by RoosTer
* Audiorum by Martinus
* Core Gravity Drive by AKUTA

Videos and panoramas for all.

(BLOOD) The Dreamwell Enigma: Barlington Estate
Story
Explore Master Barlington's estate, also home to his exclusive gentlemen's club including some prominent figures of the area, owners of influential businesses; Cobbleson & Son's Crimson Brewery, Leroux's Médaillon Bathhouse, Ashford's Bank and Trust, etc. Strange activities have been taking place at the estate and these men are likely involved. Rumours also spread about a new religious cult forming and gossip regarding Barlington's mental health as of late. Sudden disappearances have been reported surrounding the area, but no concrete evidence pointing to the club itself. What secrets are they hiding? Break inside, rummage around, seek documents and discover the truth, no matter how far you must dig to find it.

Requires an up to date copy of BLOOD with either Plasma Pak expansion installed or the One Unit Whole Blood package. GOG's release works well.

To install, just extract the zip file to your quake directory (remembering to preserve directories). Run using your favourite (limit extending) engine with the commandline options -game jam8 +map jam8_start. Happy fragging!
