Speedmapping Thread!
From now on, this thread will be the place to discuss speedmapping issues. This will also be where all speedmapping events will be annouced. This is just an effort to keep General Abuse on it's topic of 'anything' rather than being about speedmapping every weekend.

Made A Much Expanded Wad With Textures From AD, Rmq And Some Dm Maps 
SM181 
I'll try to come up with something for SM181.

Just a question regarding the rules of such mapping adventures: Is one restricted to use copper.wad *exclusively*? 
Not Really 
but the more you stick with the theme the better. There is also many cases and its encouraged a lot, about using speedmaps from other sessions, even if the theme doesn't match. 
Going To Play Through A Few Of These 
https://www.twitch.tv/ionous

Starts in ten minutes or so. 
Slow Progress Is Progress 
I never worked with these textures and am new to speedmapping... things will certainly look rough and unpolished.

Nonetheless a few peeks at my entry "Santan's Farty Underpants": https://imgur.com/a/RbgQJ 
Typo... 
The map is, of course, titled "Satan's Farty Underpants"...

Of course, "Santan" could be a weird Santa/Satan hybrid creature... 
Promising Indeed. 
 
 
things will certainly look rough and unpolished.

Then its going to be a genuine speedmap, so don't worry and make it fun for you. 
Ye, 
.. if the time limit is more than a couple days you should probably just call it a jam. Copper Jam sounds pretty funky too 
On At Least 
the last 11 speedmap packs there was a week of time to map, save one or two. It is so people can choose when to map because real life and ..., not intended to use the full of it. Not many of us can map in whatever time we want like years ago. 
Progress... 
Small update: https://imgur.com/a/gQLR9

Some corridors remind me of Unreal... 
Sm181 
I will be trying make small map for sm181.

When is deadline? 7 Jan 2018 or or sooner? 
 
deadline is 7.1.2018 sunday

You'd better get going! 
 
you have all the way until july to get it done. no worries! 
Ya I Thot That Too 
But he said Jan 7 earlier. Crazy backwards d.m.y timing (although the units do nicely increase in that method vs the m.d.y). 
Depends On The Area 
we use d/m/y too here and have it hard with m/d/y but easier with y/m/d.

It is similar on how much a billion is varies between the areas: some say is 10^12 (million of million), some 10^11 and some 10^9 (thousand of million). Makes it harder when i travel around. 
 
Just use "international date format" best part about it is that you can sort it chronologically in excel / file explorers. And it lumps the largest number first, then smaller, then smallest.

YYYY-MM-DD 
Of Copse And Stone 
Working on my speedmap with a custom theme that merges hstn% textures with cop% (as seen in the kpbonus level in my old and rather lame keep episode, keep not Keep).

Screenies soon...so long as my little brother-in-laws don't keep piling ontop me. 
Doing Some 
for this session.

Probably will be one that focus on skill level differences and another smaller one that focus on more or less randomized encounters. 
More Progress 
More days to go, but here's an update:

https://imgur.com/a/8IkK8 
Nice Start. 
Getting the style right there. Please incorporate more height variation in the area and in the wall finishes if possible :) 
Just Messing Around With The Theme 
@FifthElephant 
That looks like some *very* nice geometry! 
My Progress 
Speedmap-arific DOOMer! 
 
Screw Silver And Gold 
I want that Copper Jam! Looking good. 
How To Submit An Entry? 
How does one submit an entry to the speedmapping run? Does one just simply put a link to the finished map or are the entries disclosed only to whoever assembles the complete pack? 
Put A Link Here, On The Deadline's Day 
to avoid the comments spread between this thread and the news one.

Usually the maps are sent to the organizer's e-mail, and disclosed like you explain, but Naitelveni has none on his profile so this time they must be put here. 
Almost There 
First map, and second map

As i have a bit more of time, instead of doing a quicker one, i am testing a bit of DM gameplay for the second, with its layout seems like it could work. 
@Cocerello 
Looking forward to playing these! Your second map indeed looks very DM-able :) 
My Entry 
Sm181 
In the next 3 hours, I published my map. Now I am in the process of placing the monsters, but I need to get away from the computer for a time. 
 
My sm181 map - http://cacodemon.doomer.org/quake/sm181_doomer.zip

Not enough time for balancing monsters and skill levels, sorry :( 
 
Updated Link 
-fixed easy skill trigger_counter mistake in laser pillar area. 
@Doomer 
Hi Doomer, at the end of your map (I took the liberty of already enjoying it!) I just cannot manage to jump into the pipe and I had to noclip to reach the exit trigger. Did I miss something?

https://imgur.com/a/rlxfb 
Done 
Here are my maps.

Not recommended on skill 2-3. More details on the text files. 
@SavageX 
Ups. I forgot add small stair :(
Thanks, man!

I updated my map with fix unaccessable exit gate.
http://cacodemon.doomer.org/quake/sm181_doomer.zip 
@DOOMer 
Yay, thanks for the fix! The map works without problems now :) 
And ... 
is there any news from Naitelveni and Fifthelephant? 
 
Naitelveni planned try to make the sm181_pack today 
Sadly, As Usual, I Wasn't Finished In Time 
 
Ops 
forgot about you Qmaster, sorry. Before i was asking mostly about if both Naitelveni and Fifthmaps had a map too, and it seems that not, which is a pity.

About your map, i suppose you are still on time: it is an speedmap, given how not much like an speedmap many speedmaps have been these last two or three years and how real speedmaps are made, if you just put an exit on whatever you have it will be similar to most speedmaps already. If you won't release, just save it for sm182. 
Yup Saving 
I kinda fudged the copse theme anyway. 
So... 
Any news on when there will be a sm181 package? 
Coce 
I won’t be able to finish mine be unfortunately 
Roger That 
On another topic, after five days it seems that Naitelveni forgot about this or didn't know the organizer needed to do the pack, if not he would have asked us for help if he was lacking time. He doesn't seem to be hanging around here or Doomworld much in the last months so poking him a bit is not possible.

So any of us will have to do the pack instead and i volunteer myself for it, as i have time.

In 12 hours i will upload it, just in case he appears or if any of you want to submit something quick or tweak a bug on the map. Just warn me beforehand and I'll wait for you. In the case Naitelveni appears with a map after that I'll update the file. 
 
Just in case if naitelveni doesn't send his exit door fix in time:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/16YH39QbpK-PBY2wKvXPSujCgOW4zums-/view?usp=sharing 
 
I created sm181 pack, uploaded it on my host and submmited news on func_

Cocerello, I didn't read your post when I made the decision to do it.

yes to both! 
24 Hour Jam 2: Time To Argue Over The Name 
Sorry for such short notice on this, but if anyone's interested, a few people in Terrafusion and I will be doing a followup to the [24 hour jam](https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/24h_jam.html) from about a year and a half back.

Starts June 3rd, 12am func time and ends June 4th, 12am func time. Theme is *base once again. Any base set will do, idbase, ikbase, speedbase, doesn't matter. Id1 only. 
Apparently This Doesn't Use Markdown 
The original 24 hour jam for reference. Dammit. 
But... 
that's more that 24 hours, no? 
Wait What? 
Is it? Time zones are confusing. 12am one day into 12am the next day. That's what I thought. 
 
that's more that 24 hours, no?


Starts June 3rd, 12am func time and ends June 4th, 12am func time.

Getting A Lot Of Mileage Out Of That One 
 
Haven't Even Scratched The Surface 
 
Alright Fuck It Whatever, SM183 It Is 
Start it early, I fucked this one up. End time is still the same. /shrug 
@Kinn 
He revealed the theme early. So technically more than 24 hours. Sort of. If you are a cheater. 
 
Of Course We Are All Cheaters

P.S. I threw something together that is quite terrible but forgot about it until now.

what momma dont know wont kill her. 
 
Nice, another "too cool for func" top secret jam from sock. Haven't had those in quite some time. 
 
the idea that "map jams" are to be hosted on func only is something that needs to die years ago.

func is not the great filter for all quake content on the web. 
 
also, sock didnt host anything. we just all made maps at the same time and packed em together.

hell im the one who made the theme of "Zombies and a lift" so 1v1 me or whatever. 
 
@mukor

thank you for the maps =D

@anonymous

please, don't start a war.
Func isn't the only community for quake, i know it's the most active but there's also people on quakeone forums talking about multiplayer and all sort of things, there's people on Moddb making mods for darkplaces, there's people on insideqc talking about engine mods with FTE, there's people on twitter making new models, there's people on quaddicted forums sharing new textures, there's people on discord talking about something (i don't know what, i don't use discord XD) and all of them just want to have fun and keep quake alive.

let's hold our hands and fight the world together \o/ 
Honest Question Tho 
if func is not the great filter for all quake content on the web.

then why post here at all?

Can't we all just get along? 
 
"then why post here at all?"

to share maps with quake fans.

not gonna respond to the peanut gallery stuff anymore.

play the maps. have fun. 
Fair Enough Muk 
I played them straight away - loved them all although scar3crow's made me scream in terror and I died spectacularly in Zombie's and Muk's.

Skill 1 demos here.

g1ftmacher's = whimsical!
muk's = sprawling!
scar3crow's = maniacal!
sock's = spiraling!
zombie's = tubular! 
 
yeah scarecrow gets the most credit from me in this pack. he managed to pull off a map in <3 hours with a limited skill set in TB. congrats to him.

zombie pulled off some good atmosphere in his 3 hours. the water section was cool.

gift had the coolest quad in the pack and the sky made me lol.

socks map giving the weapons it did made me feel all powerful and such. nice use of vertical space, too.

and i spent way too much time on my map. :D

thanks for the demos. 
That Sky! What?? Added To The Maps-to-play Hopper. 
Doom has about 3 places to easily find everything and most importantly never miss a new map, though you can mostly just go to Doomworld.

Quake has, let's see, one-two-three...seven+ places to go and get cool new and different stuff. Makes it hard to not miss anything important like new maps, cool betas, and screenshots of those jawdroppers that will never be released (this century). 
 
The sky is from khreathors prototype wad. 
News Thread Exists Now 
 
ay thanks metl. appreciate it. 
Mayan Speedmap Jimmy 
One week to create a Mayan themed map (id1 vanilla) no other rules.

GO MAP! 
Woop! 
sm184_otp is go! 
Let's Do This 
No promises, though. 
Gooooo Map :) 
 
 
YES!! :) 
Ww 
From where you got the azwall textures? I cannot get to remember them. 
 
I'll try one! Nice textures 
4047 
Somebody posted em up on discord a while back
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GOw_skwhTqv5UAFwDYPw77xdlqgj9tlF
Most seem work in progress. The guy didn't say what the source was and the original names have been for some dumb reason. 
 
Mariteux was the guy who put the wad together. Maybe he can share originals if he's still around. 
@Cocorello 
Here's all the info you need on that particular WAD

https://valvedev.info/guide/alHD 
Thanks, Demptruck_ds 
So if i have understood that well, those azwall textures are textures Id never used but no custom map has used ever before either. I know that there are textures Id never used as I have used them for years for custom maps, but it is hard to believe that in 22 years no one found the rest. 
Some More Wads In Here 
I'll be dropping a dropbox folder here with some wads that might prove useful for some mappers in here.

abAztec.wad will keep being updated with new textures for the next few days, so keep an eye out on that filesize.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tw0021k9kpqvbbx/AAA6FNyrH6o_HOKlgUFkognIa 
Extended Deadline 
Sunday July 1st - 23:59 func_time.
Hopefully this will give enough people time to finish their maps - and maybe give others a chance to join. 
Submitted! 
Expect to play it soon!

Who's Up For Another Spee Dmap? 
From now till Sunday evening.

Got a metalic theme in mind.

Bit drunk btw, havrnt checked #speedmapping at Discunt. 
Speedmapping Pack 186 Is A Go! 
- Theme is Terracotta. Think of maps like E1M5 and E4M4 (some parts of E4M3, too).
- Deadline is August 26th 23:59 func time (Berlin). So about 4 days left to map.
- Texture wad is provided here: http://www.quaketastic.com/files/texture_wads/sm186tex.wad

Now quit dilly-dallying and :gomap:

SM187 "4h Speed Mapping" 
Sm187 event starts now "4h speed mapping session", maps should be made in 4 hours or under it. There is no specific theme, just pick what interests you personally. Vanilla quake maps. Multiple entries allowed as well.

Deadline would be 24~ hours starting from this point, but maps can be send much earlier of course. You can post finished maps to #speedmapping, directly to me or using my
email mikkou9(at)gmail(dot)com.

Happy mapping times*

Timer (a bit off): http://khreathor.xyz/jam/sm_counter.html 
 
(Clarification: this session was prompted by post #4046.) 
^^^^^^ 
actually #4064 
Sm187 Extension Needed? 
Do you pll need one extension about 12 hours more? Some might have different timezone or bad timing in rl. 
No 
Bad timing = too bad, make a map next time. 
 
Yeah, if idea doesn't get support that is fine ofc ^^; Reminder about 6h left http://khreathor.xyz/jam/sm_counter.html 
Last Minute Mappers Fair Extension (sm187) 
If you started in last 3h you can use rest 4h for your map. I will pack maps later today (about 6-7h from this point). 
 
where is the download? 
 
just posted func post, should be soon up. 
Now You're Warmed Up: 
SM188: The Age Of The No Penis Mapper

Theme: http://www.celephais.net/board/view_thread.php?id=61618 - read Baker's magnificent first post and make a map inspired by / in response to it.

Obviously this is quite conceptual. It's up to you, as the accused no-penis-mapper, to interpret it. You could acquiesce to Baker's words of wisdom and make a map featuring no penises but lots of coop starts. Or you could make a tribute to the great orator and make the whole map an enormous penis. Or anything in between.

If that's all a bit avant-garde, just make "classic Quake with a modern twist".

Restrictions:
Any wad - vanilla Id1 only - runs in Quakespasm and Mark V

Deadline:
12am GMT Monday 17th September (4+ days from now).

Submit to:
teamshambler@googlemail.com

(I know this is a bit soon after SM187 but I wanted to do it while it's vaguely topical). 
It's My Time To Shine. 
 
P.S. 
Female, trans, etc mappers are encouraged to do their own suitable interpretations of the theme, e.g. "no-vagina" map or "hell yeah I'm a proper no-penis mapper" celebratory map, etc. 
Solid Theme 
should draw CZG out. 
Weekend! 
You've had two evenings, you have two more days. Let's do it!

I'm going at it hard, got a nice wee map that I might expand a bit. Hoping for some reinforcements from you guys. Remember if the theme is a bit conceptual (just like Baker's ramblings), then just do your own thing and have fun with it.

As a bonus, here's a suitable wad enhancement to inspire you:

Progs_dump Speedmap Pack 
There's some interest in doing a speedmap pack around progs_dump. Tentative plan is to start wednesday the 3rd and end at the start of Monday the 8th. Still figuring out exact times and putting together a wad. More details to follow.

For naming this, did sm188 become a thing or just shambler's map? / Should the progs_dump speedmap pack be sm189? 
Sm188 Cancelled So This Is Now 188 
Do it boiz. 
Sm188: Progs_dump Speedmap Pack! 
sm188 starts at 12 AM EST (5 AM UTC) October 3rd and ends 12 AM EST October 8th!

We've bundled up all the tools and a custom wad in one spot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9eowtboa90b031s/sm188_tools.zip?dl=1
http://www.quaketastic.com/files/single_player/speed_maps/sm188_tools.zip

Submit your maps to AndrewYoder [at] live.com

Please note that while these tools contain the prog_dump tools, it's not the same as the progs_dump release. If you want examples for how to use those tools, you should download that and check out the maps!

Now get mapping! 
 
Forgot to mention! The custom wad has some new textures from Jazz! Even if you don't intend to submit a speedmap, worth checking out that wad for those! 
 
Wait is this the scary map thing? 
@Qmaster 
I think the scary map pack is going to be after. There was talk of putting together a wad with a lot of gory textures. iirc, Newhouse is the person to check with on that.
