Scrap Thread
How many unfinished/unreleased maps do you have lying around? I'm sure there's quite a few for each one of us.

If you no longer have the energy and/or will to finish them, why not share them online so that some other mapper can have a look - and possibly finish them??

It might be a good idea to have one central "repository" type place for ease of access, and also to encourage others into not condemning their unfinished work to rotting on their hard drives.

As A Start. 
czg's scraps:

Lots of scraps, ranging in quality and size. All of them probably very old, but still usable (as evidenced by how often they're recycled in newer maps).

Bal's Nehahra maps:

Made for a Nehahra episode that never materialised. Huge and old. Posting them here only for historic value since he's been making new stuff based on them instead.

RemakeQuake scraps:

Lots and lots of stuff, maps, models, sounds, code etc. All (presumably, never got a proper license) ripe for grabs. There's some real gems to be found if you dig deep enough. 
Thanks otp!


The map was for AD and was to be called "Azure Anesthetics," a hybrid medieval/base-themed map built out of blue stone, metal, and runic textures. There are some monster/item placements and moving parts, some areas are lit and detailed, others are obviously incomplete, others are not even laid out yet. There are a few places with jumbled bits that I had meant to delete but hadn't got around to yet, and some floating bits I had copied from other scraps and wanted to incorporate somehow. (Yeah, terrible workflow, I know.) I've included all the necessary texturewads (you may have to re-add them manually because I think I had added them according to absolute filepaths); the one called "animated tech" is actually a jumble of miscellaneous textures copied from other wads and individual maps.

Anyone has my permission to do anything they want with the scrap, just credit me. If someone actually finishes it, I will play it, even if I don't play much of anything these days. 
May As Well Drop This Here 
Scraps from an old Rubicon chainmap project where everyone lost interest after few brushes. & by Vigil (iirc "2" is the same map converted to regular map format) by Scampie by negke by onetruepurple (lol) 
On Chainmaps... 
Does anyone have / know where sm69 stopped? Some promising shots for that one, using the Am-Bezek (sp?) industrial style. I think RPG and Metlslime where involved. 
I have it on my computer, RPG and I were passing it back and forth for a while, then he gave it to me to finish.

• Brushwork is 90% complete (needs a boss fight or final combat arena.) It's decent quality brushwork in most rooms, but very 2008 in terms of detail.

• Lighting is passable but could be better (I started using orange lights for the lava but didn't carry it through the dungeon yet.)

• All gameplay triggers and logic is working

• Needs enemy placement. I was considering repopulating it with rubicon 2 enemies.

Realistically, someone else could finish it. I don't map anymore. 
If you want to email it over, I could take a crack at it in about two weeks. 
I guess that’s the nail in the coffin of Rubicon 3 (providing you hadn’t already said as much elsewhere). 
I have one map, but it's just a few brushes.

For the rest of my maps I always released the .map-files along with the .bsps so that anyone who loads them down can also see what they look like before compiling, and also so that anyone who complains about me not using phong can just take the time to compile it with phong themselves. 
You know, I think I'm gonna resurrect this map.

I was going through a hard time when I posted that stuff, very depressed. I think I will, eventually, complete the map, at whatever scale, won't use all the geometry in that .map, but the stuff I like of it anyway.

On the off chance someone was using it, email me I guess, maybe we can collaborate. I work pretty slowly anyway, and in spurts.

If not then no harm done. :) 
Has the new stuff Bal done based on his nehahra stuff ever been released?

Is anyone still in touch with Glassman? I recall he has some nehahra scraps too. 
Has the new stuff Bal done based on his nehahra stuff ever been released?

No, because it's new stuff that's still WIP... 
That's very good news! Keep on trucking. 
Building A CZG Scrap Map... 
In case anyone is interested, I've combined CZG's two Doom-themed unfinished maps into one & I am populating it with AD enemies.

Wish me luck! 
May The Forcefield Be With You! 
lots of promising talk above, hope some of it reaches fruition! 
@Drew & @wakey 
Done & uploaded! You can check it out here: 
A collection of about 50 scraps featuring some of my very first excursions with Quake (tinyfw1 & fair).

co_fwsp2 is probably the closest to a complete level, it's very fragmented but with some patching together it could very well be fun.
It uses Copper mod, IKblue, a few personal custom modification textures I no longer have, and ID1 tex. 
New Map From One Of Bal's Scrapped Maps... 
Here is the posting for a new map, "Kelluva Linna," created from one of the maps that he made for a Nehahra episode that never materialized:


are two unfinished maps using the badpak mod

Maybe somebody can finish them? 
May Be Better This One? 
Y'know, those two unfinished maps would work well merged together, considering that they rock the same aesthetic (classic Base)!

Unfortunately, no Read_Me file was included for either one of those unfinished maps. It would be nice to contact those mappers, for permission as well as to obtain the original map files, if possible. 
Can the maps be merged without the map file? I think the authors are long gone. Their only connection is Ironhammer, but ironhammer himself is also long gone.

A first finished blockout of my dm4jam entry:

Use it at your will. 
And this is a Christmas Jam entry that will never be:
