Speedmodding is a competition where coders try and make a complete mod within a predefined boundary of time. Quake has a long and decorated history of speedmodding events of all sorts of types and lengths, and that tradition still lives.

This is the Quake Speedmodding Competition #00, not to imply that it is the first, but that it is the first that we have tried to enumerate. So consider this the first of the new era of speedmodding.

#00 was held by Harb on Inside3d.com and gamesurge #qc. The modders were given a single map with a set of unlabelled entities in it, and were told to create any mod they liked with the resources supplied. They had 24 hours to create it, starting on Friday, January 14, 2005.

Several varied mods were produced by MauveBib, Randy, VorteX, Sajt, and Supa. Click on the images for more details on that mod.

The mod pack, including the map and all five mods, can be downloaded HERE from FilePlanet. Enjoy!

Other older "speedmods":

The "centerprint wars", resulting on fun ascii games that use the centerprint messages to play. The winner whas FrikaC with a nice version of Tetris. (maybe you can search the forums for it)

Yet older,... whas one around "The 8 ball", with mods that use this model, or something similar. I forget. The winner whas Coffee with a very nice 1vs1 footbal mod against very interesting bots (Coffee its our bot genius)

Looks that even more and more speedmodding contest whas in the past, originated on #qc at gamesurge, but I am not a irc boy, so I dont know much about.

note:
Because I have that bad memory, most if not all the info here is unaccurate.

Yeah, I remember those :)

Also there were a few random ones, and one held during QExpo 2003 (I made a sidescroller where you played as a bat... I wonder if anyone still has this :D)

Any before 2002 I would not know about..
