  • Upcoming December/Christmas Mapjam

    Hey, everyone!

    I haven't seen anything posted about this here yet so I thought I'd try and spread the hype! Coming this December will be a new Quake mapjam specifically for the Arcane Dimensions mod. The jam is tentatively titled the Christmas mapjam but I'm sure the themes of the maps will vary, or have no holiday specific theme at all.

    There are some amazing mappers working on this jam, and some of the screens I've seen so far look outstanding. I'm really excited about this jam and I think everyone is going to have a blast playing through these maps. If you haven't already done so, make sure you check out Arcane Dimensions the mod you will need to play this jam.

    Also, I am doing a map for this jam as well and to get you in the holiday spirit I have a few screens. The map is inspired by Disney's Frozen (I know insane right?) But bear with me, I think some people might get a few kicks out of it!

    Ok, making a post here can be frustrating at times. I received an error message when this posted, and none of the images appear to be showing. So here's a link to the imgur gallery:

      Images are showing fine! Thanks for the heads up! Please keep posting stuff, I know it seems like no one is here anymore but there's a few of us that only get the news through here...old habits die hard I suppose. Much appreciated, and your map looks fantastic so far!

        Ha, one can really do ANYTHING with Quake, i'm impressed! Also, somebody get that woman a coat. I already feel tempted to play the trademark song in loop while playing that map when it is released.

        Yeah, 10-20 people, 5-8 posting things, but on a frequent basis. I wish Solecord would work on this site again.
        I once was a Ranger like you. But then i took a rocket to the knee.

          I think it's safe to say at this point, that ain't gonna happen. I've seen him post once in the last 3 or 4 months.

          At any rate, I'm glad guys like you and ArrrCee are still around.

              Dutch Samewise! After being here for two months i feel comfortable. If this site goes down, which would make me sad, i will go to func_msg, but i like me a good forum. And quakeone, despite its status, is still a big library for all sorts of interesting quake stuff.

                TheKillingJoke my map will include a special remix of a classic Quake track with my own piano cover of "Let it Go" (no vocals, thankfully, I'm no singer) so you won't need to play the Frozen OST.

                It's a shame about the site slowing down, and certain features are not functioning. It was a true forum as compared to func_ Right now I fear the worst for this place...

                I don't know exactly when the jam will release, but maps are due 22, so expect it within a few days after that, I will surely make a post.

                Happy Holidays Quakers!

                  Apparently uploading a GIF doesn't work also... So you'll have to click the link to see the frames.

                    Hi Redfield
                    I'm sure many would agree that in comparison to what it used to be with Baker, Yellow, Mindzy, Seven, Efess, Golden Boy and many others all contributing regularly, and most of the site features working it's in some ways in a bit of a sorry state at the moment. However, fear not, I would expect that even if Sole has decided to go in another direction and I'm not saying that he has, one or more of us could put at least something in place fairly quickly if needs be (even as a temporary measure), should QuakeOne.com go down.

                    That aside, thanks for posting about the Christmas Map Jam and the architecture in your screenshots looks very good. I look forward to playing it and the other maps in the Jam as well as watching Arrcee's entertaining playthrough (hopefully in 1st person mode ​ ) on the Quake Grave channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/lameatthegame)

                    Keep them coming!

                    Kind regards
