Quake 2 is another classic from id software.

While not modded quite as much as it's predecessor or Q3A, it is still a blast to play and the mod's on offer are bundles of fun. Just step into Quake 2 Rocket Arena, armed with the new and almighty rocket and rail gun and you will be gibbing for hours on end.

If you dig fast paced action, then load up the good ole Quake 2, fire up a mod or two and have some fun!

Dear Quakers!

Q2 Cafe is proud to announce the 10th Mapping Contest that will be hosted at Leray.proboards.com

We thought you could use a good challenge, so here it is!

This is the big 10 so we're planning something memorable. We'd love for everyone to sign up by February 15th, and have at least a full month afterwards to make something awesome. The last Contest was held back in December of 2011, making this one extra special due to a backlog of great ideas that have been saved up over the years!

There's no pressure to construct superb works of art, unless of course you want to, and we'd love to accommodate new mappers and beginners alike. We know everyone likes a good challenge so we're also looking for challengers to claim the top title.

The past events were all smash hits that rewarded the Quake 2 community with awesome new maps, and we don't see that changing this time. Most importantly this contest is about the fun experience and group activity that will enrich and expand our playing field. We would hate for any mappers to miss out on this exciting event that will surely stimulate everyone's imagination for years to come!

And just so you know... there's already a number of top mappers who are psyched to have this contest in order to showcase their latest work and mapping skills in a venue like the good old days. They know how much this kind of group activity can help inspire creativity within the individual and the community. Many have great ideas they have been holding onto for years, and some of them are just itching to be realized. We're sure there's many more people out there who'd love to join but just need a little nudge and some motivation to unlock the mapper in them.

Imagine what you can make given all the great editors available today and provided the right outlet! Now's the time to do it and flex your mapping muscle. All entries are welcome, big or small, they will all help make this Mapping Contest a success. Lastly we need capable judges to help rate the maps at the end of this contest. If you know someone like that, please feel free to invite them as well.

Do you think you got what it takes?

I have been trying to make maps for this game, and I just want to say that I was looking and that there are very few single player maps for Quake 2. Almost all the maps are multiplay only. I know there are some single player maps, I've played them, but there are not enough. I would like to suggest that people make more single player Quake 2 maps, provided they are decent of course. They don't have to be miraculous or anything, but I would like to see more, and I am sure that I am not alone.

How does 495 sound to you? :-) I uploaded a total of 495 SP Maps and Associated Text files.
You enjoy them and Please UPLOAD files to the the UPLOADS folder and I will move them to proper folders.

Well I can direct you where to learn about MAP making. Quakepc.webs.com (Also have SP Maps) Also there are Many , many Single Player Maps out there. I played a few that took me a week of 4-5 hours a day to finish.!
Some are 'okay' while others are with a great theme and Mapping. I found a couple where I could NOT find all of the Game's Missions. I hope I helped you find what your looking for.
