RemakeQuake Winter Demo 2011
Here's the d/l link: download
The RemakeQuake blog with screenshots: blog
And our public forum for feedback: forum

The pack consists of four large levels by myself and Ricky along with a load of new Qc, sound and engine features. Shortly we'll be releasing the tools version as well, which features the BSP2 tools. A small detail was omitted from the readme, that being the correct command line of:

-game rmqwinter11 -sndspeed 44100

Let us know what you think, this has been a long time in the making, but we're pretty pleased with the results.

Also NOT About: 
Bland mapping.
Levels of difficulty that make Warpspasm seem relaxed.
Even more lurid coloured lighting.
Flying facehugging jellyfish.


Zombie knights are very cool tho.

I'm kinda glad I didn't play this at the time. Compared to E1M6 Remake which, despite some annoyances with new sounds, falling damage, etc, had plentiful cool additions to the map and an exploratory vibe that felt like it was enhancing E1M6, this pack has kept all the bad bits, and either made them worse or added new stuff that's even worse, and hasn't really compensated with slick map remakes. Given the direction it was going it's probably a good thing the mod disbanded. 
Zombie knights won!

And they will haunt you Shambler..,
you, with your lack of grenade damage! 
I was trying to play Fort Driant under this, but the enforcers with the Hyperblaster does not do damage 
What we did was enemy_whatever = enemy_rmq in a separate qc file in order to support external mods.

Now that I think about it, the extended damage system might have needed those hooks as well.

Sorry it didn't work. Thanks for playing it though. 
No Proper Quoth 2 Support 
Boy, was that idea over the top. Let people play Nehahra, Quoth and everything else under RMQ. :)

Oh well, you have to do something like that once in your life or you haven't lived.

I've been thinking to overhaul the e1m6rq demo, add missing Chthon animations and make everything cast shadows with detail brushes. And add the missing room behind those crushers you have to block with crates.

Hmm. Maybe a new project. Sometime.

Yup, thanks for playing it Yhe1. 
And make the boilers only destroyable by Chthon. The boss fight is much too easy. >:-) 
what plans, if any, are there for any as-yet-unreleased RMQ maps? Will we see a partial release eventually? 
It's was quite fun actually, Hope you guys can add full support in the future 
The Fate Of The Maps 
The Schism guys are still working on Schism, which I believe uses RMQ maps.

I've considered bundling some improved versions of my old RMQ maps and putting them up somewhere sometime, but since - to my current knowledge - Schism makes use of some of them, I'll only do that (quietly) when the Schism release has come and gone. I would probably fork such a release from the Demo 2 progs since I personally feel that was the team's pinnacle.

Also, the Scout's Journey environments are partly based in my RMQ maps, but their appearance has changed greatly. I had to dump certain parts of the levels due to technical reasons, replacing them with completely new setpieces, while other levels have been chopped up and their components are sort of recycled. Quite a bit of the actual brushwork from RMQ episode 1 will end up in Scout's Journey in some form though, so Quake fans might have a deja vu or several in the unlikely event they ever play it.

Schism should be *much* closer to a "faithful Quake remake" though, whatever that actually is.

Louis will know a lot more about Schism, naturally. 
Lost a post with error 42 :(

Schism will use some but not all the RMQ maps and have a much more manageable release schedule - a few maps at a time as opposed to 30+ in one go.

Right now I'm working on a rubicon2 project to get some perspective, after that I want to arm up schism release #1. 
Thanks for the update guys

I paid attention to the RMQ site, so I just want to say: I want to see that outdoor medieval map (was it e1m2?) with the dragon seen from above. I always thought it would be cool to link all the maps in one of id's episode together into one single giant outdoor map (I even started doing this one time with E2, but soon gave up). I liked the idea of seeing what was outside of/around these maps. 
That was one of the maps I had to cut up in order for it to be playable as a q3bsp (and because frankly, there was no real plan behind the design of that outdoor area).

The vis behaves very differently in q3bsp, you can't have the crazy outdoor areas that some RMQ maps have (and some of your own, Tronyn).

That map is completely open to the sky; you can grapple through holes in the roofs and run around on top of the entire thing. It was one of the extreme things we did. Without MH's engine(and BSP2), that wouldn't even have seemed feasible.

It's one of the maps that are on a list of things to fix up, whenever time permits.

Though frankly, I believe its SJ incarnation will be better. 
it would have been nice if rmq had worked. If i could just unstick myself from this ancient game i could do some awesome new creations... 
I Know How You Feek 
but the ancient atmospgere of this game is a big part of why you're here at all.
plus there's always/also personal reasons 
Don't Worry 
I sutil lime Quake :) 
Had the keyboard in Spanish :P 
Are There Any Unfinished Rmq Maps 
are there any unfinished rmq maps that can be fixed up or combined and released? 
Calm Down. 
If I had the time and energy.

Rj had some great stuff with relatively few dependencies. 
What Happened To The Rmq Project Anyway 
is it still developing or abandoned? 
that project had a great potential, atleast at level construction, i didn't like the new gameplay but the maps were topnotch 
There Is A Large Map I Was Creating 
I have been working on it, I plan to release it eventually. 
What Was The Title Of The Map You've Been Working 
another base map?
rj's are the most intriguing maps
gonna predict something e2ish
