    The Bridge Crane (Q3)

    @Sprony, I do have an editor shot of the map, its a crazy large (1Mb) in size but it does show all the decals and stuff over the crane. http://www.simonoc.com/images/design/concept/indust_editor1.jpg @BJA the reason for the high texture size is the resolution of all the texture is 1024x1024 which is essential Quad HD for Q3 as most textures are usually 256x256 at most. I also have 3 different coloured metal versions as well which could be removed to reduce space. @2d-chris thanks man!

    The Bridge Crane (Q3)

    The Bridge Crane is an architectural concept exploring the idea of industrial shapes painted in large amounts of concrete and metal. While looking for inspiration and reference I came across some pictures of a Russian Aluminium Processing Plant and it gave me a good understanding of the scale I wanted to create. As some people may realize this is an old project of mine which I recently updated with a Youtube video flying around showing what it looks like in motion. (link below) Full write up on how it was made - http://www.simonoc.com/pages/design/concept/bridgecrane.htm This concept map (no gameplay) was made from 700Mb of textures, 400 models and plenty of HD light maps! Some alternative colour schemes for the textures: Youtube video flying around the map with music by Descara and Camera setup by QMM 1.7

  7. This thread needs more low poly, crispy pixel, retro goodness!
  8. Hey, thanks everyone for the interest in my funky old Quake map. I know a lot of people here don't have Quake, so I did a quick (comedy) flyby review of the map, hope it makes you smile!

    Func Quake MapJam 2

    Over at func for the last month there has been a map jam event running and the final map pack is complete with 8 authors creating new maps. The map jam was based on the theme of IK blue / white and as you can see from the screenshot lots of people created different styles. Download - http://scampie.net/files/maps/func_mapjam2.zip

    Q1 - In the Shadows

    @SpronyvanJohnson, This update is about supporting an extra engine (DarkPlaces), the MOD will still work fine with older Fitz like engines (MarkV, QS). A lot of the Quake community and especially newer players want to see more eye candy and I wanted the MOD to look its best if the player wants to use the DarkPlaces engine.

    Q1 - In the Shadows

    It's that time of the year over at Moddb where they vote for mods. If anyone has some spare time please give In the Shadows your vote. Thanks everyone for your interest in this mod.

    Q1 - In the Shadows

    @seir, no worries, found something that fits the slime. @pyroGXPilot, unfortunately those wad files do not have any slime borders. Thanks for the links. Shadowgate (S1M1) was the first test map I created for the mod and was a good place to start my eye candy visual boost. These screenshots are from the Darkplaces engine with real time lighting, custom particles and various shader effects.
