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.

Thanks 
for the clarification.

Hopefully, it will be more successful than the Quake Accolades. 
 
Will it be more successful than the project you chose to completely not mention on your podcast? Who knows.

(At least ignoring it was better than enabling Scampie in his quest to rate everything skacky and I made a 1...) 
Geh Ma Nicht Gleich Heulen Du Trottel 
sm_199 will be fine. 
Dibs On Sm666 
The private sm200 discord has been running since at least May. I was kicked from it last month right after calling sm197. Guessing because I didn't consult with otp, and muk was involved in the idea. 
Ww 
Nothing surprising there. I can't wait to see the turn out for this one. Should be illuminating. 
 
lol 
 
Since you all seem so excited about it, come in and have a peek.

https://discord.gg/CPrXUT9 
Though Maybe 
If people are going to just join, ask questions about it elsewhere, and then leave, maybe I should just keep it closed. 
@otp 
I had some confusion about the theme and wasn't sure what all you intend to borrow from the linked doom event's structure. I'm personally not up for an endurance-mapping event, hence my leaving the channel, but I hope we get some good maps out of it and maybe draw in some new mappers and players :)

Best of luck to all participating! 
I Agree OTP 
why open it up to plebs? 
 
#4236: I would have hoped that the words "get several mappers to livestream the making a speedmap one each, put them in sequence, release as SM200: a brand new community-made episode for Quake" were clear enough, sorry you were confused.

#4237: What the fuck are you even talking about? 
#4237 
The cabal of l33t mappers. Don't sweat it. Good luck with sm200. Maybe we can hit 300 maps this year. 
So 
In the space of an hour, you went from posting a constructive suggestion on the discord, then to saying something about "plebs" and deleting the suggestion, to saying "don't sweat it" and wishing us good luck, despite shitting on the idea on QM.

Are you sure you got your temper in control? 
Sm200 
Well, I was being polite actually. Sometimes that's not the best tact. There are some decent people involved with this so far and I wish them good luck. 
 
Aw, come on guys! Stuff like THIS, I think, is part why there's a whole thread dedicated to the toxicity of the Quake community. Some people might want to bring out the popcorn to check out the fireworks and drama, but I just wish you guys could get along. :c 
Speedmap Numbers Are Abritrary 
Just map if you feel like it. 
Crossposting From The Discord. 
@everyone SM200 is now live.

Here's the guidelines: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1C6IdzKmk93gvBAs0jGSH1O1Si6bfqX5FUBChtN7CfYg/edit?usp=sharing

This is the current schedule: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BXXCPxC5CG6yrkGycvPCQjb-Zn84TzY5o5Bg-ZqDYNs/edit?usp=sharing

Please tag either me, @ionous or @fairweather for when you'd like to be added to the rotation! 
Hmmmm. 
What does this actually entail again?? 
Maybe 
I should actually link to the Discord again: https://discord.gg/CPrXUT9 
 
Reporting in to say that the first map is done and was fun to work on. Good luck to everyone on map 2! 
 
damn open my editor for first time in years.... is like open a new program :| won’t have time to finish to sm200 but maybe sm201 i can arrange something 
 
proposal for a future speedmap (once sewerjam is over):
No Curves Allowed. Make the most beautiful level you can, but no curved geo. 
 
alternatively, call it "Curve Intervention" because between JamX and Sewerjam and things like sm200c, this has been The Year of The Curved Geo 
Not To Spoil The Fun ... 
but that would be 95% of the speedmaps till now, save if there has been that trend in the last ones, as i have not played them till now.

More interesting would be no corner maps, so no angles should be less than 91º or just no corners to simplify things. Easy and fast to do if creating some modules or prefabs at the beginning and combine them. 
 
That's fair. Maybe "pentagon" or "triangle" as a theme would be a more interesting challenge? 
 
"no floors" - people rely on floors too much IMO. 
All The Time On Trigger_push And Teleport? 
Sounds like a joke but could be interesting. There would be some other options too, like liquids, for example. 
Lol @Metl. 
I expect to see a map from your good self :p 
The Floor Problem Of Combat Design... 
 
 
void map themed speedmap event? :P

SM202: Recycled Trash 
Theme: Recycled Trash
Progs: ID1
Texture wad: No restriction
Deadline: September 28th, 2019

We all have those embarrassing, horrible maps we made while learning the fine art of level design. Well, time to go back and confront those ghosts of memory. Take one of those blights upon mapping, and remake them using all the skills you've learned since.

Submission: Either PM the maps directly to me on Discord or email them to
voice DOT of DOT the DOT nephilim AT gmail DOT com
If you have the original maps you're basing the update from, submit that as well.

Good luck to all. 
 
Have Several 
At some point i decided to clean and make look decent some of the rags from 199x and finished a bunch. They are all speedmap-like, not eyecandy focused, and half of them for Deathmatch.

I think i have the originals for some. 
Screenshots 
BeforeAfter
Second
Third
The ''before'' one is not exactly the original but not too far from it.

I have to search further into the hard drive and find the rest. 
Cocerello 
It's definitely a good excuse to unearth some stuff that's been hanging around the HD too long. 
Two Days Left 
Two days left until the deadline. 
Will 
probably be mapping till the last minute.

So you'll see my email a bit late. 
No Worries 
I probably won't even have time to start packing up things until late, late Sunday, so take your time. 
Understood 
going to sleep then 
Extension 
So I won't be able to work on packaging this for another 32 hours due to RL commitments. I'm extending the deadline 24 hours. 
Ionous 
sent you the maps on an email. I went overboard again and i backfired on me so instead of submitting all the scraps i have from 199x, i am only releasing my first three deathmatch maps with a remade version for each. 
Update On Sm202 
RL is rather weighting on me heavily right now, so I can't really get it out the door today. I'm aiming for Wednesday night. 
SM203: 99 Brushes Or Less 
SM203: 99 Brushes or Less

Theme: Open
Progs: Copper -- http://lunaran.com/copper/download.html
...however, vanilla entries are quite welcome too!
Textures: Also open -- https://www.quaddicted.com/files/wads
Deadline: 11:59 PM EST, October 28th (See countdown)
Rules: It's fair game as long as the brushes in your map are in the double digits! Please include your map file, for verification.
Submission: PM the map directly to me on Discord @Greenwood or email: padregreenwood AT gmail DOT com
Countdown: https://www.tickcounter.com/countdown/1534437/sm-203-99-brushes-or-less

Good luck! 
Anything Fine 
including unlimited entity brushes like in the last 100 brushes pack? I think we are better if at most putting a limit of another 99 entity brushes or there would be no point to the 99 world brushes limit. 
A Brush Is A Brush 
It's 99 brushes, period. This includes entity brushes, like doors. Adding Copper is already a nicety, because it bypasses the need to build monster closets ...now those brushes can be used for worldspawn and trigger brushes!

I think folks can make awesome maps, despite the established constraint. CZG's Biotoxin has only about 99 brushes and it looks good and is a lot of fun! Plus, everybody else from that second 100 brush contest didn't have Copper to use. 
Understood 
Just saying, but Biotoxin has only 99 brushes because it relies heavily on hacking, reason 4th 100 brushes pack freed entity brushes from the count so it would not be a hacking competition but created the aforementioned problem.

Have one half done already for 99 total brushes. Now for the finishing touches. 
Well, So Far... 
Well, so far from the maps that I have received, I haven't seen any hacking ...and being a relatively new mapper, I haven't gotten clever enough to hack anything myself.

However, I do appreciate what you are saying, Cocerello. If I run another event similar to this one, I will definitely take that into consideration. Look forward to seeing your entry! 
Count Me Out 
 
Hahaha 
 
SM204: 20 Years Of Quake III Arena 
Celebrate this classic game's anniversary by creating a vanilla single player map using Quake 3 textures and its gothic / tech ambiance. Feel free to remix a Quake 3 level or create an entirely new vision. Please add deathmatch and coop spawns too!

DEADLINE Sunday November 24th 11:59pm CET (func_time)
Countdown clock

PROGS id1

TEXTURES Quake 3 Arena textures and similar wads with the gothic tech aesthetic. Here's a Quake 3 wad to get you started.

SUBMISSIONS Email me your map or message me on the Quake Mapping Discord here.

INSPIRATION Take a look at Quaddicted for some maps in this style.

Post your questions here or at the speedmapping channel on Quake Mapping.

Good luck and have fun. 
Just To Clarify Above 
These would be Quake 1 SP maps using Quake 3 textures. Sorry for any confusion. 
Bonus Points For Anyone Making Quake 3 Levels Using Quake 1 Textures.. 
 
BTW Tho. 
I did actually have a vaguely inspiring sketch for a Q3A textured map a while ago... ...but this SM session clashes with the #no-map-november event taking place on Discord, where we take a breather from the relentless production line of mapping, chill for a month, catch up recently releases etc. justsayin'.... 
This Is A Really Good Idea For A Sm 
 
Drew 
Will you be mapping for this or only playing? 
Some Progress 
on sm204

WIP screenshot 
Nice Neat Arch. 
 
Probably Neither Honestly! 
...Actually I keep up with speedmaps better then full releases since I’m fond of the format and they’re quick. 
Due To Wrath's EA Release 
We've decided on a 24 hour extension for SM204. New Countdown clock here: https://www.tickcounter.com/countdown/1598978/sm204-extension 
Sent Mine To Your E-mail 
dumptruck_ds, but as i haven't played Quake 3 since 2000, i based it on Sauerbraten, with the textures from Quake 3 of course.

It has DM, coop and SP. 
Sent Again 
There was a bug which prevented the player from finishing the map. Even if it is an speedmap is better to have it fixed. 
Thanks Coce 
Update: this pack won't be really until Weds at the earliest. All kinds of stuff going on in RL this week. But it looks like we have seven maps total.
