Once I stop adding features to the mod I will create a summary list here for everyone to check out. The mod is going to be a collection of all the assets and QC functions I have created over the past couple. There will be a couple of fully polished maps released with the mod, but essentially the mod will be a bunch of stuff for mappers to play with.

The map is fully switched over to the new mod and has the new pickups, lids, random angles and better texture uv/normal setups. This area is a mirrored version with a separate SK and door. This area was built first and the rivers of lava screenshot was built based on this side which is why it looks similar.

Thanks, I am glad you like it. The movie is certainly setup in a special way with the player slowly sliding down a slope towards the monsters. The infighting between the knights and shambler is unscripted. There are a couple of tweaks to prevent the shambler switching targets so quickly when hit, but otherwise its all dynamic.

The map still has plenty of cool blue areas, but this area needs to feel hot with the lava bubbling close by.

The floating red things are lava balls, an original quake entity added for effect. Has a nice dynamic light attached to it and does a little damage if touched. It certainly sounds a bit goofy, but is a classic dressing for lava in quake maps.

Probably the best part of this screenshot is the lava, how it blends at the edges and yes, that lava path is dangerous!

I total agree, the lighting from the lava is certainly not intense enough, hopefully the next screenshot will fix that.

The new ammo pickups come in two flavours, base and medieval. I wanted something to contrast the rest of the scene which is why the ammo box is base style.

The map is deep underground, it needs to be dark and cold so that when the players gets to warmer locations they feel the change

The fury knight was indeed part of the ITS mod, but it was not really fun for stealth combat. The monster is better suited to traditional quake gameplay of pursue and attack.

Thanks, the fury knight has changed since this video, no more banana glow swords, uses a nice edge glow effect instead. Also does some extra melee attacks which I will keep as a surprise for the final release.

Yeah, this is just a test map, experimenting with different lighting, colours and encounter setups.

Unfortunately this project is on the backburner until I finish my current projects. This MOD is not dead, just in hibernation for the winter!

You should create a thread for this mod at the QuakeOne forums, a lot of people there use the DP engine and they might be able to give you more feedback running your alpha with different hardware.

The front portcullis is opened by walking up to it, there is trigger just infront where the knight is standing. I recommend you play this map with a Fitz or QS client, check the readme file for more details of where to download them from.

I am glad you enjoyed it, the falling factor can be annoying at first, but it brings so much tension to the map experience that it would have been a shame to remove it. I highly recommend you try Horde of Zendar next.

Rich Douglas recently recreated the music for Quake in a high quality format. It is really good and faithful to the original and I highly recommend anyone to download it.

All those maps highlighted in that retro article were created by me. I recommend anyone who likes this map to try out The Horde of Zendar as well. Link - Moddb.com

This is a very good question and something I have been wanting to do for sometime. Unfortunately the majority of the new work on this mod has been coding new features and creating full bright box maps to test out the gameplay. Once I get something more visually exciting, I will do a big news update.

I would recommend you create proper set of game logic entities to use in your project. The original Q3 engine has many limitations with entity types and quantities, it really is fine tuned for MP gameplay mechanics only.

Thank you very much for the compliment and I am glad you enjoyed the map, but there are no plans for part 2. It started life as an experiment into 3D scripting, but I soon realized it was a crazy thing to do with such a limited engine.

I highly recommend to play the map on normal and hard skill level, they are a different experience. Also if you are playing the map for a second time, try to find the upper route first, the reverse direction rewards the player with more powerful weapons early.

You are totally right, it is indeed very cheeky of me, but there are so few people left who are interested in Quake that I thought that even some programmers might want a quick blast through an old style custom map. If you want me to leave the QC group out from further updates, please let me know.

I am still working on this MOD, just not all of the time. Hopefully soon there will be an update released with new maps, monsters, art assets and lots of Dark Places visual enhancements.

It is called a demo because the MOD is not complete. This version is just a couple of maps (S1M1,S1M2,TOS) and the base stealth combat system. This demo was produced to give people an impression of what the final MOD will be like when finished.
