Four more releases join https://www.quaddicted.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=249 https://www.quaddicted.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=248 to the Quaddicted database:
First-time Quake mapper Lukasxd has released two maps. While not as impressive as most recent releases by more accomplished authors, it is always exciting to see newcomers to Q1SP mapping – and this brings the total of Q1SP author debuts in 2014 to six six six (the other five being https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/func_mapjam1.html, https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/gravelpitfinal2.html, https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/kpcn2014.html, https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/castleod.html and https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/func_mapjam3.html), or seven including https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/func_mapjam1.html, if you discount https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/progref.html.
Lukasxd’s https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/w_temple.html is a somewhat abstract map featuring a bizarre floating structure.
https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/f_box.html by the same author is a base map, aptly containing a fair number of crates.
Then there is the impressive but unfinished https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/kq.html by Samuel ‘Kaiser’ Villarreal, a demo version (as the title suggests) of an unfinished unofficial expansion pack featuring new/modified enemies and environmental effects, and some neat traps. This was actually already released in 2010 (there is even a http://www.celephais.net/board/view_thread.php?id=60573 dating from 2011), but has only now joined the Quaddicted database.
Despite being obviously incomplete – there are only three playable maps and a skill selection map, and there are some bugs and a new monster with what is clearly a placeholder skin – it is worth checking out. Fans of base maps and the Zerstörer aesthetic are likely to enjoy this.
Lastly, https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/mutant.html is an older map from the mind of diabolical genius https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/?filtered=digs (from roughly the same period as https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/supmut.html). A considerable part of this map re-imagines Doom2’s famous map01/“Entryway”. Like Supmut and https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/digs2.html, Mutant is very amateurish compared to digs’s later work, but fans (such as yours truly) may find this an interesting peek into this expert mapper’s past.
