One Other Thing...

Sorry for 3 posts when one would do. For unsophisticated sorts like me who don't have a web page - could I send my map to someone who could then provide the link? That is if the maps aren't collected and put into a single group ala 100 brush.

I could provide downloads for the maps on PlanetQuake.
Also, what would be better: releases seperately, or in a pack?
I do like the idea of a pack of custom models & stuff too :)

pack. seems silly to have them all seperate.
might be good to seperate maps from models/sounds/etc tho, if it comes to that.

i don't know if i'll participate. i won't say i will because i'm pretty bad when it comes to respecting deadlines...
i'll say it has me interested, and that i may start a map in the future on this theme, but i can't promise that that map will ever see the light of day.

Who "won" will be a matter of popular opinion.

i think a pack release would be better.
You Can Use Voidents

It has an "eye_candy" entity where you can create an entity with any model (even custom ones you make) in your map. You can also give them values to make them spin (for fans, etc), glow, or play frames. It has custom sounds too. Each mapper can grab whatever sounds and models he wants and include them with his map, and not rely on the models included in any pak (though they can use those too).
And I'd be happy to code other entites you may need, and personally explain the entites if they're confusing.
I know y'all dislike including qc code, but this might be very helpful.
Well, For Contests,

qc's not too bad. we used custom code on the coagula contest so that i could get my funky func_trains working and stuff.
just don't turn the mapping contest into one big mod.

Adding too much stuff doesn't help anything. Just a few handy entities should suffice.
Who May Be In?

I've just spent two evenings working on a pretty cool house. It's all one texture for the moment but it has spooky architecture. I'm trying to keep a reign on myself to hit the 25th since I don't have my PC on weekends. I plan on SP only and very basic gameplay - again to fit the time I have before the deadline. It will likely feel like a map that is bigger then a 100Brush entry (I hope anyway) but smaller then an E1M1 level.
Anyone else mapping for this?

...another E. A. Poe inspired level using IK2K.wad and some extras. This time Doctor Tar & Professor Feather... yep, the inmates have taken over the asylum.
1100 brushes in the can, and some brutal gameplay ideas, along with what will hopefully be "scary" set pieces. If I can close up this major "hub" tonight then it should be ready for the 25th.
Wish me luck.

So do you cover things like Popper and Deutsch, or is it more focused on inventions/inventors?

nitin: good memory! but I was just visiting MU (must go back soon to get another architecture fix).
pushplay: Popper, Khun, Lakatos (and Feyerabend for the really keen). In the context of "studies in generation" from the Hippocratic Writers through to Darwin.

Couple of years ago I would say: "YAY" and participate it.
Couple of months ago I would say: "YAY", participate it and don't releasy anything.
Nowadays I'm not going even to participate it because I suck, kthx =)
Anyway, like I said before, there's no scariness in Q1 and there's no scary monster in that evil demonical game :(
Besides, modelling that famous halloween pumpkin would be a bitch ;PP

Converting Quake3 To Quake1

They know how at Inside3d, ask there:
They were talking about it just recently.
It involves something like opening it in Quark, saving it as a Quake2 model, then saving it as a quake1 model, then importing/cleaning up the skin. But there's also some other tricks to it...
The Trick Being:

getting permission to do it rather than just stealing everything you happen to find on the net. I mean really, what's the differance between converting someone's model without their permission and converting someone's map without their permission?
but beyond that, what's so difficult about a pumpkin in bsp form? I'll do it for the Oct. 25th speedmap session.
