I must say that it look really fun for a TC.

McKinley revival @ Deja-review
by DGhost @ [03:07 PM] March 30 2002

Aaaaah McKinley Revival. This map bring me back so many memories from Quake 2 CTF (at this point I'm looking vaguely at the sky with tears in my eyes). So, head over to Deja-Review for a small review of this remake for Quake 3 Arena that I'm downloading as I type this! Or also, at the same time, you could check this other version of McKinley Revival.

Show us your Quakin' love!
by DGhost @ [12:28 PM] March 30 2002

Well, okay I want (again :P) some cool pictures that we will know right away just by looking at it that you love Quake. The pictures can be related to anything as long as we can see that you love Quake. And I'll post it as the pic of the day. You can send it to me and please, your pictures, if they are in 640X480 in a compress format, it will help me a lot.

New version of Defrag
by DGhost @ [12:29 PM] March 30 2002

From their webpage:
The DeFRaG is a SOLO mod for Q3A based on your movement ability and not on your skill against bots or human players.

Therefore you can practice and perfect your-self on every imaginable and possible Q3A trick. In fact, as you should know, the more mobility you have, the more victories you can hope.
I have played a little bit that mod around PR 1.17, it was realy fun and tough. Now a new version is out for the latest point release. You should give it a try!

More maps @ Deja-Review
by DGhost @ [12:48 PM] March 26 2002

Okay I didn't try the map yet but you've got to, at least, take a look at this one. Devlar's Purgatory is a DM map inspired by the hallway from Quake 1. You know the place where you would choose the episode you would want to do? Yep that's the one! It could be fun fraggin' Quake 3 style in this place. The second map, still @ Deja-review is the last map from Quake 1 first episode. This map didn't get a good praise since there is some errors in it.

Interview with a Scumbag
by mayhemm @ [05:49 PM] March 21 2002

This is pretty interesting....  Although this is technically not  Q3 or Q3-engined game based news, I think it's always good to know what is going on inside the mind of those peeps who are trying to ruin online games for all of us.  A good interview with an online cheater at Mapped.
BangOut: I think we've addressed everything but the most important issue- why are you doing this? You do know it's really annoying and ruins the game for everyone else, right?
[NCC]Elf_Crusader: As I said above, I've played a lot of games, and cheating was never such a problem for me until I started playing this game a lot online. Cheating has always been there and always will be- coders are clever, hackers are twice so. I didn't call myself the elf crusader because I want people to use the Elfbot, but because I want to see it gone. I want to play good multiplayer games like this to be cheat free and I want people to give a **** that's it's so easy to do what I did in so little time.
Read the rest right here.

The Dark Conjunction on the Way Out
by mayhemm @ [05:19 PM] March 13 2002

Heh,  I didn't even know this was getting released, as it happened in February when I was, errr, lost to the world.  You may remember us talking about a Q3TC called Dark Conjunction in one of our news posts nearing beta.  Well, it did, and now it's gone.  I just saw on Gamespydaily today, that the team behind Dark Conjunction has been offered a commercial opportunity and can't do the TC AND their new project at the same time.  Oh well.  I guess I can't blame them.  Here's their site if you still wanna check out the mod.

Interview with Jon Olick
by DGhost @ [02:33 AM] March 13 2002

For those of you who are wondering who the hell this guy is, well he's one of he programmer of the 2015 team, the one that made medal of Honor: Allied assault. Here is a snip from the interview:
Skidrowpunk: There’s a level that’s included with the game but isn’t used (mission 4 level 0) can you give us the story behind that?

Jon: An entire mission was actually cut. It was one of the levels in that mission that we just didn't have the heart to throw it away. During the final push towards release, we didn't have time to polish it as much as the rest of the levels in the game so it ended up being cut.

Skidrowpunk: In addition to the "secret" mission, we noticed there's a Purple Heart medal hidden in one of the game files. Is there any way to actually win the medal?

Jon: Yes, but I'm not going to give away how to get it that easily. Nice try.
Go read it @ Planet Medal of Honor.

Paul Jaquays is leaving IDSoftware
by DGhost @ [08:22 PM] March 08 2002

That's right folks! Big news, Paul Jacquays leaves IDsoftware to pursue other challenge in development and design. Here is the whole .Plan:
A Time for Every Purpose

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven" ...a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;"

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

I'll drop the bombshell here and get it over with. For me, this is a time to "pluck up what is planted."

Yesterday, March 7th marked the 5th anniversary of my joining id Software. So the timing of this message is somewhat ironic in nature. After much consideration and soul searching, I've decided to part ways with id. Today, March 8th, is my last day as an id Software employee.

After five years of making first person shooters like Quake2, Quake III Arena, and Quake III: Team Arena, I've come to the realization that my heart just isn't in it any more. For this reason, I've decided to make a slight shift in career direction and seek other design and development challenges. I have accepted a position with Ensemble Studios (the creators of the Age of Empires series and Age of Mythology) here in Dallas, and will be taking up my new duties with them in short order. I'm excited about the new job and I understand that the entire team there is excited to have me come on board.

I want to thank everyone who has made my id experience an interesting ride, including the guys here at id, Ms. Donna, and especially the friends I've made in the on-line mapping, modeling, and texturing communities.

Anyone who needs to contact me directly should still be able to do so through my id email address for a while yet. Or you can check for me up on the MapCenter forums.

Well, it has been fun, honest, but the time has come to power down this system, pack up a few remaining personal items, shake some hands, say my farewells, and head on out the door. Catch you all later.


March 7, 1997 V March 8, 2002.

P.S. And don't worry about Doom, the guys who have been doing all the really cool stuff for the game are still busting their chops hard as ever on it.
From the community and from me also Paul, I wish you good luck. You have done an outstanding job @ ID and we'll miss you. I hope the best for everything you'll do.

Jedi Outcast: JK2 Gold??

by mayhemm @ [06:34 PM] March 08 2002

Just saw this on Gamespydaily.com and it may be interesting..  iDSoftware Artist/Animator Fred Nilsson recently sat down (rhetorically speaking of course :P) with Planetquake3.net and answered some questions in an interview. The questions cover topics such as Fred's current projects, life before iD and life with iD.  Here's an obligatory cut'n'paste:
RogeR: What is the coolest thing about working at id Software?
Fred: Besides it being my dream job? I'd have to say the people.. Everyone here is really nice, and mega talented.. We all get along well, it's just overall a real fun place to work.. The things that get produced here are just mind boggling at times..

Robert Duffy Interview@Doom3.cz
by mayhemm @ [06:46 PM] March 07 2002

What is your favourite mod? What mod is by you the best in graphics, code and gameplay?

MOHAA Top Selling Game
by mayhemm @ [06:56 PM] March 07 2002

According to NPD Techworld, MOHAA is the top seller of PC Games once again for this week.  I know it's a meaningless blurb, but NPD Techworld tracks the sales of everything from hardware, durables, to video games.  It's pretty cool seeing games based on the Q3 engine still being successful 3 years after it was released.  Thanks goes to Gamespot for the blurb.

Jon Zuk's....you don't know who that is??!!  That's a'ight, neither did I until I read his .plan update =).  Jon Zuk just happens to be the project lead for Raven Software's up-coming (and dr00l bringing) Q3A-engined sequel to Soldier of Fortune, SOF2.  It seems that they are sponsoring a skinning contest.  Ordinarily, I wouldn't post something like that, but the 1rst prize is a Gamecube and signed copy of SOF2, 2nd prize a Gameboy Advance and copy of SOF2.  Go ahead and find out what it's about, or try your luck right here!

Hello all!  Well, I'm back (if you've noticed that I left :P) and happy to be among the world of the living.  To celebrate :-/  Here's my first news post in a month.  Gamespydaily has shouted that the b@d boys behind the Annihilation Q3 mod has graced us all with some eye-candy/teaser pics from the beta version (beta2.0 if you wanna know) of their WW2 styled, realism team-based mod.  Check 'em out here--they look nice, heh, but you're gonna have to turn your gamma up as far as I can see!
