Copper Quake / Underdark Overbright (UPDATED)
A dual release for Quake's anniversary this weekend:

1. >> Copper Quake, a "Vanilla+" mod that polishes and refines Quake's singleplayer gameplay. It grinds off the roughest edges we've all just gotten used to over the last two decades without moving away from what Quake is at heart, and expands opportunity for high-level play. For example: Nightmare difficulty is an actual playable mode!

Read all the detail about it you desire, and download it, from the Copper site:

2. >> A 7+2 map episode to go with it called Underdark Overbright. It's like czg, sock, and headshot had a sexy baby, featuring guest mapper Scampie!

Download it too:

UPDATE July 16: new version 1.05 is now available, follow the links above.
CoffeeQuake Has Released!
Promo Video:

A simple challenge was posed for mapmakers: Make a medieval-themed map in 1 hour. In the speediest of speedmap challenges, each level would be placed in a line to form one continuous episode. After the first episode was a huge success, three other episodes were made in the other three themes of Quake, this time with a two-hour time limit. With four episodes, that's a full Quake game for you. For free, no less! Where are you going to find a fairer deal than that? Now go play the bite-sized adventure set out for you by: CoffeeQuake!

This project was organized by Fairweather and myself. It contains 76 speedmaps by nineteen different people, (23 of which are playable in deathmatch), a start map by Fairweather, and an end map by Ionous.

More information is available in the included readme file.

Here is the download link:
