Comments--------
In this brave new Quake world, it is difficult to find themes that haven't seen repeated trips to the well. While doing a replay of CZG maps, I realized the Insomnia was one of the few episodes that hadn't seen a lot of unearthing. Granted, this isn't surprising, since the wads are kinda fucking hideous, but nonetheless, I thought it might drive at least some interest. And it was a starting point for where he interest / obsession / eternal undying love for curves were formed.

And what interest there was! Fifteen brave souls were willing to brave this eyeball-burning hodge-podge mess, and make some fine maps. So thanks to all the authors who sacrificed their free time at the altar of CZG.

So to all authors, again I thank you.

Specifically.

Thanks to Bal for making custom texture variations that were actually bearable. And for making the Trenchbroom .def file for the jamx entities. And for helping out with the start map. Practically a co-authors of the pack.

Thanks to Dumptruck_DS for his wonderful progs, which were utilized for this pack. Also, for making his wonderful HYPE preview video.

Thanks to Mugwump for his custom texture variations on the CZG07C textures. Some nice stuff there.
Thanks to onetruepurple for his wad, which was a nice expansion of the original CZG07C set. Also, he came up with the name for this event.

Aw. Quake 1.5 isn't friendly with this. I'm sad now

Quake 1.5 is a mod just like this. Unfortunately, Quake can only play one mod at a time.

How in God's name is it that they have released 10 of these yet every single 1 is an absolute pain to install without the injector (which doesn't even have this current jam in it)?

I prefer easy way of installing by Injector too, but I wouldn't describe extracting to folder and creating shortcut with parameters as "absolute pain to install".
