New Q1SP: "Honey" By CZG
Someone might have to fix the url later or something? idk.

Here's a screenshot:

Uhm, it's two maps, a start map, and some extra crap. Comes with its own progs and some stuff. Sources included. You can play the maps in any order, just go from the start map so you get the "story". Weapons don't carry over . (Vondur!!!!!)

Please play with fitzquake or quakespasm or something like that. These maps break lots of limits and also use fog quite heavily.

Hopefully it works as intended, if not, april fools, lol!

Editors Note: holy sex on a stick it's czg's map!!

second map was amazing IMHO (saint), the atmosphere was absolutely stunning. First map was also very nice but not as immersive. 
and I have no idea how you pulled off that second map in what is pretty much standard quake. 
Not Standard Quake 
Both maps exceed the usual limits and require Fitz 0.85 at least. 
So you didn't use the built in .map saving of whatever the last Ogier version to support the Quake GDK? 
No That One Sucks. 
Besides, any Q1 support in the latest Ogier is broken at best. 
yeah I know, and it has fog, but without too much custom tomfoolery (or so it seemed anyway). 
Screens Looks Amazing! 
Great atmosphere. 
Finally Played It Last Night.. 
.. and I cannot add more than what others said already. Really brilliant atmosphere and design, fun gameplay and never boring. Lightning also is very well done. Definitely you are an ace mapper.
I also discovered the limit of my computer (or I may forgot to increaze heapsize to a decent value... though..): i.e I got a lot of choppy areas particularly in the old temple part.
Anyway... that was really 2 good hours of fun, never get lost, never ran out of ammo, never died...
But what the fuck was this ending sequence ??? :) 
cannot save nor quick save in darkplaces. I also tried to load maps separately, they load but again cannot save.
any ideas 
..My Old Pc Could Run It? 
..hey do ya think my valuable PentiumII(best processor ever imho) 350 would manage this map at decent framerate ??

-for your info I can play well even at 2002/2004 games
my pc is modest but godlike optimized and configured by me ! 
Why Don't You Just Try It 
Yes, in the time it took to ask you could have just downloaded it and played. :) 
This Is A Very Good Map 
... even though I have so little game time I haven't finished it yet. 
I�m Sure 
this is the best made out of Quake 1
I�ve ever seen.

Rubicon2�s "A thousand years into the past" is a glimpse of what he did here, especially the Saint One.

I�ve no words for this!!!

Thank You, CZG!!!

(sorry Than, you�re only 2nd..) 
sorry for taking so goddamn long, I've been building up to an exam I write this Wednesday. I've played this and Scampie's new release and they were both brilliant, so it is coming. I especially admire the "stacked layout" style of these maps, the layouts are so brilliant and despite the complexity you know where to go - and then you find yourself re-entering a familiar area but from a new angle. The end was good too, since it's a 20 (or 30) year cliche running to beat the boss and save the world. But real review, no more than a week. 
Thank You, CZG! 
Thank you for this feel storm. 
oh cool, czg, you are atmospheric god 
that sounds so fucking sarcastic 
Awsome. Totaly Awesome 
That Autechre Credits At The End... 
..made me spine chills! 
Har Har 
im confused 
Honey Homage With Only Slight Nausea 
Wow, is it 2013 already? 
That's a very nice look you've crafted there... makes me want to try it on some of my other favorite maps. 
Finally Got A Taste Of Honey 
What's the rule here on bumping old threads? If it's a problem, then let me know and I won't do it again.

I've seen Honey mentioned a few times since partaking in the Quake community and I've seen czg discussed many times, but I still wasn't sure what to expect. I finally decided to try this on the recommendation of mfx after mentioning how much I liked ad_swampy and ad_crucial. The previous posts here already sum up my thoughts and there's nothing that I can add in addition to chiming in and saying that this was really damn good.

I played the grenade/rocket key map first and it was my favorite of the two. The concept that you painted of this absolutely massive abandoned underground complex was executed so well. I immediately found myself looking up and down and admiring the beauty of being surrounded by this ominous void in either direction.

What stood out to me the most that all of this was accomplished without tons of minute brushwork. I didn't notice much in the way of fancy trim or fine detail. It's a very different approach to creating a beautiful map. This was all about atmosphere and it was pulled off so well. I was especially impressed with the changes in lighting and fog when entering and exiting certain areas.

The ending was amazing in contrast to the serious tone of the maps. It was heartwarming and I particularly enjoyed the credits music. I could go on for a while about how much I liked this set but I'll wrap it up. What a fantastic way to say goodbye to the community. It's a shame that we won't see more czg maps but fortunately for me, I still have more to explore, not to mention that this pack has a lot of replay value even if only to admire the architecture and ambiance of the maps. Even though you won't see this post, thanks all the same for the experience.
