What? 
And that means you, OTP, getting yur shit together.

I have nothing to do with this thing. 
Guys I Need A Help With External Model Textures 
for example i got primevil deathmatch pak
what should i do to enable exttex in quake

i put em in id1 directory - >
textures(some .tga files)->
progs - some .tga files
models - some .tga files

health and ammo paks are working just fine, but v_models and g_models won't work

i got a mod and just dropped all files there and it works , besides RL g_ 
 
fitzquake/quakespasm? cause it doesn't support it.
rmq engine does though.

health and ammo packs are technically maps, which those engines do support, just not .mdls. 
Map Jam 3 
Daikatana Episode 4 WAD 
Has some but I don't know if I would call them good... 
 
maybe have a mapjam with the only requirement it has to use a totally new texture set 
 
jam3: There Must Be No Knight Visible Right From The Playerstart 
 
jam3: There Must Be No Knight Visible Right From The Playerstart

impossible 
 
are knights the new crates? 
 
Knights are the new scaffolding,
which was the new mattresses,
which were the new pipes,
which were the new barrels,
which were the new crates.

anyway i figure out how to install the mod 
Ok 
I like the idea of an oriental theme map jam... but also this might be a great theme?

Dkt 
I'll play it... 
Misc Ideas 
whatever the next jam theme is, it should be something relatively unique (like the last two). There are already lots of great Daikatana-E3 maps. I imagine some people are itching to make base maps, but there are also a lot of base maps already (along with a lot of Quoth/Fodrian maps). I liked the Elder World suggestion, as well as the Low Gravity suggestion. There are plenty of wads on quaddicted that have hardly been used yet, though they might be too unfamiliar to inspire people. If I had to settle on that balance of used enough to inspire, but not too much, I'd go with the textures that were used in Glassman's Day of the Lords, Necros' The Living End, the Coagula Contest 3 Start Map, and I think Hrimfaxi has a turtle map in those as well (can't remember what game they're from). Or even the ones from Necros' Altar of Storms. Actually just make the whole thing based on that, it's been too long and I want a Necros map. heh. 
Egyptian Wads? 
 
 
Glassman's Day of the Lords

This was an awesome map, but literally every square inch of it is the exact same shade of babyshit brown. 
Hate To Be That Guy But 
Coagula? 
Wheee 
Build Styles:

No Monsters / No more than 30 monsters
You Must Chainmap (all authors in pack to contribute 'something' to all maps)
Ziggurat Vertigo Revisited (would need a progs)
Only one enemy type
If not Day of the Lords then Colony
Zerstorer
Lost Entrance to The 'insert id1 map name here' (different for each author)

Texture Wads:
Kingpin
Kell (fodrian or fury)
Meatech
White Room
Speedbase
Ogro
Natural Textures Only 
 
A simple "use this wad" theme would be pretty boring compared to the previous two themes, which implied both what the textures and the architecture should be.

"Honey" speaks volumes, "city2_x" does not. 
 
The last events - Koohoo, Honey, Ikwhite/blue - were all good strong themes that didn't get explored/used much by other mappers, so they were fertile territory. What themes are left that are like that? A lot of people have already done things in the style of Zerstorer, Contract/Quoth, ikbase, speedbase, every other kind of base ... Altar of Storms might be a little too monochromatic, considering what the last theme just was.

Maybe leave the texture set up for grabs and find a different kind of theme, one that helps all the submissions hang together while providing ideas and letting every mapper explore in their own way. How about just a phrase as inspiration, like ludum dare/older speedmap sessions/etc? Something as simple as "The Bridge and the Tower"? 
 
"Paganism"
"Burial Mound"
"Citadel with a Moat" 
Hollow Earth 
 
Oh Man 
if it has to be a base theme, I think Colony is by far the best example of a base map with a "good strong theme that didn't get explored/used much by other mappers." 
Zerstorer 
 
Haha 
Sadist :)
