This sounds fantastic. I have sent through an email to the address and I really hope that this project gets off the ground.
Now, if only I could find my signed-by-iD Quake 2 Extremities box... then I could then have two things by which to justify the countless hours of neglecting my friends and family so that I could stare deep into Worldcraft's interface while sitting in a dimly lit room.

pjw (and others)
all 3d shooter games are welcome. The reason its so heavily Quake focused is obviously due to my ties with the community. I do have a couple non quake contributers so far. But would encourage more.
Once I have more to show, I will recirculate a lot more diligently to other communities in an effort to get more variety.
That reminds me. Age won't be included, i nixed that idea a while ago. However the games one maps for perhaps is a wiser idea, and far more relevant.
chesire: welcome, so glad to see an old face show up from the woodwork!

For Quake map: there is Underwolrdfan's website at http://underworld.planetquake.gamespy.com/

also you can look on MPQ for some nice pieces of text expressing map style/feel...

Regarding the "schedule" given on your website, you should be, more or less, in the latest steps of your editing process... Could you give us any feedback please ? What is the status as of today ? I ask just because I'm curious ;)

book landed on the backburned with some delays in contacting a few of the first people. It's still active, but with a few other things on the menu, combined with my A.D.D. it's been stalled a bit. There HAS been work done, but nothing really worthwhile updating things with.
I'm still looking for a decent typeface that's affordable. Last one I liked was $600 ... i must have expensive taste.

I'm glad to see things are going forward: I thought a minute the project has been canceled ;)
I'll stay tuned and I'll look forward for new post from you here, in order to keep informed !
Keep it up !
It Shant Be Canceled...

you mean in a context that doesn't involve Dave Matthews and a bus and a bridge?

Sorry lads, I know there's no good 'real' reason for lack of news. I'm just getting my life back onto some solid ground. It's no excuse, just a reason for my ineptitude.

You don't have to give any excuses for that: real life is more important than our "virtual" life here. So it is not ineptitude, it is just management of priority: we all know that very well ;)

I was just looking at this the other day. I would buy this book instantly if it ever got finished.

so I can continue that idea. It's not a problem for me to prepare pages for printing, I'll watch for some cheap book printers and when I'll have more details I'll inform you all.
