I'm Just Hopin'... 
... you guys work your usual mapping magicks with the Zer theme Jam. I'll prolly be odd man out on this but, I never cared for it at all myself ---> runs and ducks for cover ;) 
 
IM DOING THIS SHIT.

The only problem is I have no idea how to do the camera tricks. 
To Those Who Are Starting On This... 
...Make sure you finish your map on time, otherwise the spooky scary skeletons will get you. 
Zer Fgd 
I know we're not officially using it yet, but I wanted to play around with zer stuff in Trenchbroom. Here's an updated version of the zer fgd from quakefgd.zip, I updated it to be based on the Quake.fgd included in trenchbroom, and added mdl names:

The weapons are weird.
weapon_nailgun with dmg 1 = chainsaw
weapon_rocketlauncher with dmg 1 = screw cannon
weapon_lightning with dmg 1 = chain lightning gun

That's awesome :) 
 
weapons being weird means that it'll still vaugely work if 'yet' becomes 'never'.

although nailgun instead of chainsaw means you can't mow down zombies, and, well, that's basically all I remember of that mod. :s 
So I've Started Something 
...that would greatly be enhanced by Zer progs. 
I Vote 
Zer progs!

Or a cleaned up but true to spirit of original progs

Though my opinion doesn't matter cuz I won't be mapping

so who's gonna 'clean up' the zerstorer progs before everyone starts mapping? 
Just Map For The Current Ones 
If I do make a cleaned up version, it'll be my responsibility to make it fully compatible. (Emphasis on if. Let's not turn this into Base Pack 2.) 
Mexx10 Enforcers 
Speaking of enforcers, I've been playing Mexx10, can anybody rip those boss enforcers out? Would love to fight them again in another mappack. 
As A Player... 
I vote Zer progs too.

Mappers can use them if they want, or ignore them if they want.

They're pretty cool enhancements for gameplay and atmosphere.

Being "old" and "1997 quality" doesn't matter that much, if you don't like them just don't use them. 
Fair Enough Then 
Rule update: Your entries have to be made for the Zerst�rer codebase. You're not obliged to use any of the extra content, but the map has to be 100% functional when played under the Zer mod.

So who's started so far? I spent day 1 putting together textures and making some silly prefabs. Time to figure out a decent layout now. 
I Started 
same stage as you 
Just Started, 200 Brushes 
Zer space/industrial 
You're Doing Space Zer Too? 
Shit... 
I Veered Away From Doing Zer Metal... 
because I thought someone else was apt to do it first. Oh well. Please don't let my decision negatively affect your creativity. My vision is of a 'blood asteroid', if that helps to differentiate the two ideas... 
That Sounds Cool 
And different enough from mine too!

so much for my two ideas... "viscera meteor" and "gore planetoid" 
Spaghetti And Meatball 
Damn.
