Q1SP Authors We Most Want To Return (regardless Of Logic)
Well, here's mine, in no particular order:
Tyrann
Glassman
Kinn
Steve Rescoe
John Romero
KELL
 
Vondur
efdat
lurker
metlslime
sock!! 
Zwiffle 
RIP :_( 
Dunno That Many... 
But of course Sock. And we're missing out with Than not mapping, his maps pretty much inspired me to get into Quake mapping. 
 
I miss Kell and his really cool take on the quake mythos. 
Lunaran 
 
Vondur 
 
 
Mexx, damaul, elek, iikka keranen (if only because he'd do some different stuff, not fucking idbase maps).

Although having said that, to make a good map these days means making a map that would wipe the ass of anything back in 97/98. Maps are much better now than they were back then, so some of those classic maps might be made by guys who wouldn't be able to make a good map by todays standards. They might not have the patience. Neil Manke might have been popular back in the day, but could he create awesome maps by todays standards? 
In No Order

Sock hasn't left - he's working on ITS. 
But 
That's a mod. 
 
Sock
Kell
Kinn
Vondork

Sock and hopefully we'll invent cloning and make more Socks so we can lock them up and have a Sock mapping farm pumping out Quake maps each week. 
 
Than
Lunaran
Tyrann
ELEK!
Kell
Kinn
Ijed 
 
It's no use Sprony, when you make a pair of socks you'll just end up losing one of them. 
I Vote For .... 
KellKinny! ... the ultimate mapping team! 
Forgot Than! 
 
Who Killed Kenny? 
 
WTF... 
does #2 mean? 
 
Kell, Glassman and Kinn. 
Hm 
I've never worked on an id1 map, only mods.

Maybe a couple of speedmaps. 
 
negke 
Lol 
that post wins the thread

(I agree, btw) 
It Was A Contest? 
nt 
 
Trinca
Peg
Tim Willits
Madfox
Iikka Ker´┐Żnen 
 
than
Matthias Worch
Dario Casali
Iikka Keranen
Matt Sefton
Willem
Brandon James (actually I think he only did dm maps, but I loved exploring them alone even)
negke (when he isn't staring at me in Borderlands 2)
Sandy Petersen 
Sandy Petersen 
sock and I once discussed how people should quit remaking e1m1 and e1m2, because the most inventive quake maps in the most dire need of an update are e4m*.

func e4rmx episode, anyone? 
All Of Them 
and cos no one has mentioned him, Pingu. 
Lunaran 
Count me in...e4m4. 
#27 Wins. 
#22 now in second place. 
Remaking The Sandy Petersen Maps 
isn't something I can see anyone doing. However, I would love to see a Sandy Petersen speedmap event (and it should work cause the Petersen maps look like they were made in 20 minutes). 
 
Neil Manke, Distrans and Fat Controller.
Sequels please :) 
 
1. [kona]
2. [kona]
3. [kona]

+ all the already mentioned starting with glassman and vondur 
E4rmx 
Might be hard to preserve the feel of the originals and to bring them up to modern quality at the same time.

That said, I'd be down for either 2 or 5. 
Nobody Picked Me... 
.. hence I am really disappointed...

nevermind... ;) 
Jean Paul LeFritteuse

Ahmm 
R.P.G.
J.P.L.
S.P.D. 
 
wouldn't mind seeing another epic hell map, jpl....... 
We All Love You JPL 
But isn't this topic about mappers who we would like to see return, not our favorite mappers who are currently active? 
Castle Of The Dark Ages 
I'd like to see another map like that!
Except stacked up vertically to 2-3x the height, and with lighter fog so as to admire the scenery better. 
What About DAZ? 
 
To Be Honest... 
.. I stopped mapping almost 4 years ago.. so If I resume mapping, it would be a return ... as I am not really an active mapper actually...

And so far I was joking in post #35.. I am not that pretentious to think I am miss somebody ;) 
Grimm 
Ludovic Texier
Steve Rescoe
Pingu 
To Add To All Of The Above Mentioned... 
Marcus Dromowicz 
 
Nice one Vondur. 
Actually What I'd Most Want 
is that headshot made a Q1SP.

Biff is around on Steam and Facebook. Is Aard still around in the Doom scene? 
 
They all grew up. I feel sorry for them heh. 
Aww 
 
 
I think I see him! Or did. Or do. I don't know what that icon is for... Cube? 
func has been a daily (or at least weekly when I got real busy) read for me for the past 10 years...I never went away!

I would like to make a small SP map sometime soon though :)

5 Star Post 
 
Lol 
MFX just released a map, he is about to release another one, but we still want him to "return." Awesome. 
Ehm... 5 Star Post Notwithstanding... 
Any care to share some info on Zwiffle?

I tried to ask (see #19) but no one seems to be up to it... Did something bad happen to him?
Being less active in the Quake community I kinda lost track of him, but we used to exchange salutes on our (common) birthday...

I'd appreciate if someone care to shed some light. If you want to do so privately, shoot me a mail thesilent96_at_gmail_dot_com. 
Zwiffle. 
Was on Daz's stream chat the other night IIRC. 
Czg 
should return and post 55 should be the title of his return map. 
Whew! Thanks Shambler!!! 
...much better now! 
Has Mfx Come Back Yet. 
 
He's Being A Tease. 
Also Nice Post Icon 
 
Has Czg Come Back Yet? 
 
Fuck Me That Shot Looks Good. 
Nice map CZG, keep it going. 
Skybox ? 
u use 3D Skybox with Quake engine... its possible that ? or its just a brush work ? 
Yeah Totally 
skyboxes go in:
{id1, or mod}/gfx/env/XXX{ft/up/dn/lf/rt/bk}.tga

In the worldspawn, add:

"sky" "XXX"

or usually there's a "sky" console command for testing. 
Oh Nvm 
didn't see "3d skybox".. no, not available in quake afaik. 
 
woah momma, that's a nice moody screenshot 
It's Not A 3d Skybox 
but looks like it because of fog and distant brushwork. 
Me 
 
Him 
 
You 
 
Youse 
 
Well I Feel Unloved 
But maybe if I vote for myself I'll finish the intensely fiddly hewn rock brushes that are just the start of an enormous base level I started making 3 years ago and gave up on.

Also you play an enforcer. 
 
Andrew 'than' Palmer

<3 his maps and secret areas density.
