What platform would you run Quetoo on if it was on Steam?:

alpha: Alter Ego for q2w

December 25, 2008 - 15:14pm

Here's the first alpa of my next q2w map. As you may have guessed, it's a tourney map aimed at some serious 1vs1 action. It's named 'Alter Ego'.

Here's the download link to the pak (~ 9 MB):

Copy the file to your quake2world/default/ directory and play the map by typing 'map alterego' in the q2w in-game console.

Comments welcome (here or in the IRC channel). Thanks for testing it!

Ok, playtesting is done. I'm starting the texturing now. Click here for an early screenie of the map.

I don't really like this q3 texture in q2w :)
And btw where can I get this one?

Hm, you're the first who says that and I really love them. To each their own I guess. :) They are from Tremulous btw.

There's no download for that map atm and it'll take me some more days till a pak is ready. Only the room on that screenie is (halfway) ready. The rest of the map has like three textures and is pitch black atm.

Hm, to that point, we really do want to select higher-res textures than Q3 sets, Spirit. Might I suggest QRP, any custom Q4 sets, or some of the Free ones used in Sauerbraten?

Hmm, as I said on the channel, I'll have a look at the sauerbraten sets.

I only know of two Quake4 texture sets and though they are technically ok they are incomplete and not my taste at all.

And I didn't like the look of Quake 1 at all. I'm sick of those brown models, maps and textures.
