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.

SM195? Exploration / Nonlinear 
Talked a bit in the Quake Mapping discord about a speedmap event themed around nonlinear levels and exploration (no combat).

There was also some interest in using JCR's jumpboots mod from the modding jam.

If folks are up for that, the speedmap would start a week or so after Mapjam X releases. (there are a few bugs with the mod we're trying to sort out first.) 
 
I got word that there's some interest in a knave speedmap after mapjam X ends, and also that this Exploration / Nonlinear thing may be better suited to a jam (maybe call it explore jam 3).

Will post more info in the mapjam thread once details are sorted out (and once mapjam x is out).

So, I am un-calling dibs on sm195 :P 
SM195: Gotta Go Fast 
Theme: None. Paramount Pictures does recommend you go quickly, however- so a 24 hour time limit has been given.

Progs: ID1.

Texture wad: Anything goes.

Deadline: May 2nd, 3PM GMT (func time).

Submit in this thread, or at me on Discord.

SM196: Honey 
Yup, another speedmap event shortly after the previous one. This time, it's theme based and we're using the one from one of the most highly rated and popular maps: Honey by czg.

Theme: Honey
Progs: ID1
Texture wad: http://www.quaketastic.com/files/texture_wads/honeywad.wad
Deadline: May 5th, 23:59 (11:59 PM) func time (Berlin)

Send the maps either to my Discord username Danz#1004 or my email brutusdzd-AT-gmail-DOT-com 
 
 
Yeah, I'm aware of Map Jam 1 being Honey themed, but it was never used during speedmap packs.
So I thought it wouldn't hurt to use it in this speedpack. 
 
:ok_hand: 
 
just say it's "Map Jam 1 Themed" 
Fuck Yes 
Daz you mapping?!
That could bring out some celebrities! 
Oh Hahaha 
danz. sorry!
But its an undeniable and flexible theme 
1hr Jam1 !!! 
Fairweather is running a 1-hour jam in the Quake Mapping discord. Here are the specifics:

1hr Jam1
Within the next two days, create a level in 1 hour in a Medieval theme.

Textures: ID1
Progs: ID1
Deadline: Vaguely 3 days from now

- Max of 30 monsters.
- Weapons will not be wiped between levels, but I will consider your level's overall difficulty and weapon availability within the pack.
- I will accept only .map files, since i'll be linking them and replacing dud textures myself.
- Levels in a style other than Medieval will not be included in the pack.
- You can attempt as many times as you'd like, just do not use prefabs. Keep the spirit of the pack!
- Levels will be compiled with extra4, dirt and bounce.


This started a day ago, so you still have time to join in! 
 
1hr Jam1...

...Within the next two days

You mis-typed "48-hour Jam" lol 
 
No, the point is to make the map or maps in an hour over the next few days and give them to Fairweather to string them out as an episode.

Fairweather has said this is an experimental endeavor and it may lead to other similar projects. 
@kinn 
you have one hour to make the map, but you can start that hour any time that's convenient in those days. It's honor system... but also it'll be obvious if you spent more than an hour on it :D 
 
Yeah I know that's the idea, I'm just saying...

Good luck with it i guess :)

Where are the Pinchy versus Shambler versus McLogenog posts from before? 
Woops 
I found them over in the Jam X thread. 
Heads Up. 
Plans for SM200 are currently being discussed by a cabal of speedmappers.

The plans include a livestreamed mapping marathon with the goal of an episodic release.

DM me on Discord for details. 
Some Clarification Needed 
So 197-199 are still up for grabs in the meantime? You're just doing 200 due to the planning involved. 
Who Are You Again? 
 
A Functioning Adult 
 
That's Nice. 
I wasn't actually asking though. 
 
am also curious. Is the dibs on SM200 to do a big celebration stream thing, whenever that happens to be? 
HrJam2 
Within the next two days, create a level in 2 hours in a Metal theme.

Any maps submitted are being compiled into a larger project, placing them into episodes with a difficulty and theming progression.

Textures: hrMet.wad
Progs: ID1
Deadline: Vaguely 3 days from now
Submit: In this thread, or to @fairweather#6969, or in the Quake Mapping discord.

- Weapons will not be wiped between levels, but I will consider your level's overall difficulty and weapon availability within the pack.

- Levels will be compiled with extra4, dirt and bounce.

Additional stuff
- If your level doesn't meet a criteria, I will ask you to edit it. I will not personally be fixing major gamebreaking bugs on your behalf.
- All weapons and enemies are welcome, except for Cthon/Shub.
- Examples of Metal-styled levels include E3M2 onwards, AD_Grendels, AD_Mountain. 
So 
an episode made out of speedmaps, simialr to a chainmap like the previous. I do not understand why mix the jam word there, it makes things confusing. 
Ugggg 
No one is doing conflating mapping terms on purpose.

There are new people coming in from other mapping communities who are excited to create content.

Not everyone knows the proper terms or cares as much as the gang here on func.

Instead of saying something is confusing why not try and set the record straight with some insights? 
Episodic Speedchainjam Ofc. 
HTH. 
Questions 
Is there any naming convention for this last pack?
The second submit option i suppose that is an email address, but there is nothing before the @ so are the numbers what goes before it? I would prefer to avoid submitting it here and it is not possible for me to use Discord. 
@Cocerello 
I can pass the file along to the discord, if you like. My email is andrewyoder @ live .com 
 
Naming convention doesn't matter. The name has to be changed before the pack is assembled anyway. If you're curious though, the naming convention is:

hrE1M2_zungryware3

This would be my third submission that ended up being the second map of the first episode. 
 
Thanks Mclogenog

@Zungryware: even under the circumstances of this last pack naming conventions are useful.
