DM4 Jam - The Bad Place
Quake DM4 is a beautiful map. Vertical... deadly... and dare I say... sexy. But... only in deathmatch!?!

It's time for you to bring this beautiful theme to the single player dimension.

***Your mission is to create a single player level using the DM4 visual/spacial theme.***

Verticalilty meets lava meets gorgeous runic textures. Epic or modest, speed map or Arcane Dimensions level of detail - all submissions and styles are welcome.

Here's the offical wad for the jam. You can add other wads and textures but please use at least one instance of each of the included textures somewhere in your submission.


UPDATE: New and final deadline is: Sunday March 18th at 18:00 func time.

There will be absolutely NO (more than the two we had) EXTENSIONS. Don't even ask. The jam admin (me) will NOT be submitting a map. Make sure and have someone playtest your map before submitting it. Use the email address in my profile to send me your maps. Or find me on the #terrafusion or #trenchbroom Discords to submit it there.

Name your map like this: dm4jam_<my nick>

Make sure and include a readme.txt and your .map file so others can learn from your hard work.

GO MAP!!!!

Some Screenshots Of Dm4 
Looks Like An Interesting Little Wad 
The jam admin (me) will NOT be submitting a map.

Maybe a start map? 
Start Map... 
Should(could?) be enhanced/advanced version of the original DM map as a homage. 
Start Map? 
Maybe. I've changed my mind about making a map but not sure how many submissions. No one is posting too much about this one. (sigh) 
I'm Trying A Speedmap For This 
I only have a few spread out hours this week but I can do something with the same detail level as the original 
I'm tempted to join, but don't know yet how much time I'll have during the week. 
I'll def give this a try. Dunno if I'll have enough time, but I'll try to be realistic and start something I can finish. 
Good Theme 
I won't even have time for a quick map, but it's a cool idea. Also, fucking epic if Bal makes one! 
Looks Like I Made A Mistake... 
with the deadline. If this keeps people from making a map then it needs to be changed.

I'll make one extension right now.

New and final deadline is: Sunday March 11th at 18:00 func time.

I'd like to test/package this on a Sunday evening because I won't have free time during the week. And hell I'm gonna make a map for this too but I'll respect the deadline.

I won't extend this again to make things fair for everyone who decides to make a map. :) If you can't make the deadline you can do a solo release afterward in this thread. Thanks! 
Intresting Theme 
Today I started my map for this jam. 
I Made A Jam Chat Channel On The Discord 
Go Map! 
Let's Give This A Go 
Okay. No more lurking. I'll give this a shot, even if the deadline is a bit tight. 
As Always... 
I didn't think I'd be interested, but then started up Jack just to doodle and was immediately smiling at my results. The challenge of using only a handful of textures has me hooked; I know we can use others if we want to, but I'm going to try to limit myself for the fun of it.

One stupid question just to clarify: this is for stock ID1, correct? The OP doesn't explicitly say, and I took the mention of Arcane Dimensions to be only a reference to its level of architectural detail, not suggesting that we're building maps for it, or any other mod for that matter. 
Stock ID1 It Is 
As for textures, you can use whatever as long as it sticks to the dm4 theme (I.E. Blue metal, lava, etc.) 
@tens @Aristical 
@tens Sorry I wasn't more clear. Honestly, it was a drunk post. :) NO ALL NIGHTERS on this one.

Vanilla this time.

@Aristical Very cool. Jump in. Make something small. Doesn't have to a masterpiece. Mine certainly won't be! Jams are really just an exercise in pushing yourself to make decisions quickly IMO. 
Sir Yes Sir! 
I promise if I get so close to the deadline that I'd be tempted to stay up, I'll put my foot down instead and turn my entry into a standalone map. I'd rather be part of the fun, of course, so I'll endeavor to keep my work small in scope. Thanks for clearing that up! Probably wasn't necessary for anyone else, but I wanted to make sure I didn't spend two weeks working off a careless assumption. 
updated thread with the new deadline. 
Id1 Right? 
Yes Id1 
Dumptruck Go Map. 
Thanks for the edit hombre. Yeah I'm actually making one. 
I like the idea of this even though I've never done a single player map. Quite interested to see what comes out. I had a quick run around dm4 last night checking out the architecture. It seems the one squiggly texture was only used in one spot on the map (corners in passage heading to YA) so may have been accidental. @Mankrip considering what the jam is I almost want to suggest using the original DM4 slightly edited as a start map for it. 
New To This Whole Scene 
But I want to give this a shot. The recent video series on Trenchbroom has me interested in trying my hand at this. I'm a huge quake fan but have never made a map before. Walking around the theme map and looking at the texture set has given me a few ideas I want to try and build. You may see more of me around asking questions as the deadline draws near. 
As I mentioned on r/quake go for it!

If I can do it anyone can. If you need help just ping me. And note the TB Discord link.
