Note: Naitelveni's map requires an engine that supports BSP2. Muk's map can have the player getting stuck on the first button.

New Q1SP: Organic Dissociation
Hey guys... I made a SP map.
It's fairly short. But does require a limit extending engine. I suggest quakespasm or markV.

Hope you all enjoy :)

After our Beta phase and some tinkering, we are ready to release!

QUMP is a project aimed at getting new people to map for quake. Many of the mappers in this project had never made a quake map before, or had only made a couple. There are also some very early/old maps by more established mappers.

Plus 4 At ..::LvL
Four maps by two authors have been added to ..::LvL. Can not blame these two authors for taking advantage of the low map queue volume. Both maps by fKd are well worth checking out.

* Electric Substation 30 by fKd
* Server Overload by fKd
* SonicBoil by ZaRR
* MoistBoil by ZaRR

Videos and panoramas for all.

In other news, I'm looking for contact details for g1zm0 / Mike Burbidge. If anyone has any details, please get in touch (don't post the details publicly please).

New Q1SP: Temple Of Azathoth By YukiRaven
A large-ish runic level by Doomworld user YukiRaven.

Well, that's one thing crossed off my bucket list... I finally finished my first Quake map, Temple of Azathoth. I mostly focused on learning the editor and tools, so it's not my most polished gameplay wise, nor my longest map ever, but it should still be pretty fun. My usual weird colored lighting was a lot more subdued as well, so this is something of a stylistic change from my last two Doom wads.

The map was designed with the Quakespasm engine in mind, so I'd recommend using it over any other engine. vkQuake should work perfectly fine as well. Darkplaces had weird lighting issue the last time I checked. Difficulty settings are in-place, and the map was designed to be played on hard.


To run this, move all of the tofaz.* files into the id1/maps folder (make the "maps" folder inside id1 if it doesn't exist), then start Quakespasm. Hit the tilde (~) key to bring up the console, then type "map tofaz" to start it. You can also use the "skill" command to set the desired skill level; just do it before using the "map tofaz" command. "skill" takes a number between 0 and 3, where "skill 0" is easy, and "skill 3" is nightmare.

New Q1SP: The End Of Solace
Inspired by E1M3 and started way back in late 2015, this is technically my first solo single player release.

Since starting "The End of Solace" I have contributed to RetroJam 6, MapJam 9 and sm179 but I finally decided to finish this one. I'm pleased with how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it!

11 Secrets / monster counts are:

Skill 0: 82
Skill 1: 93
Skill 2: 101

Coop is supported but not tested.
