This is a group for all ID Tech 4 engine modders. Whether your modding forte is Prey, Doom 3, Quake 4 or all of them, we welcome you. Also, we will accept you no matter your modding skill. Even if changing the clip-size of your weapons seems difficult, then feel free to join up and we'll try and help you with it as best we can. This is a place for ID Tech 4 modders to hang out, chat, help each other out or post their latest work, even if its a very rough alpha they only want fellow modders experimenting with. We may accept people with no mods out if they are willing to learn, or have a WIP. Happy modding, Adam

It's easier that way for me. It's a free signup and a trustworthy site+admin. Even if you only use the login to post in the contest it won't matter.

ummm "trustworthy site", ok i can give you that much, however the "trustworthy admin" is another topic, ive had a lot of personal dealings with the socalled "BNA!" dude, he is the sole reason i stopped going there and also the sole reason i do not contribute on d3w site anylonger

Hey, we need more mappers and some judges! People who don't want to/have time/don't think they're that great can judge. Speed mapping is a great way for practice and judging is a great way to figure out how you can improve your own maps by taking apart someone else's and seeing what you like/don't like.

I *KNOW* there's Doom 3 mappers on this site! Join up!
