Both Are Acceptable
Whatever strikes your creativity. If it’s crying out for vertical, unreachable spaces, go for it.
vertical, unreachable spaces
That's not what I had in mind (more like mechanisms hidden from view) but you just sparked inspiration for a cool design idea. Thanks!
I find that the size limitation helps to rein in the scope of a mapper's ambition, and increase the chance of something actually being completed.
But I know I needed every day on last year's entry.
Oh boy, can't wait to stall until Nov 28 to start something good for this!

Howdy! This sounds like a fun way to get into Quake mapping, although there's a few things about AD I still need to work out. Where's the best place to ask minor questions around here?
OTP is right and you can also ask in the AD thread
or use the search function here. The AD documentation is pretty thorough as well.
The AD map sources help too although they get pretty crazy compared to id1 maps.
Thanks! Discord seems like the place to be. I'll check it out.
Very slow progress, on the weekends only... For some reason I find it to be very hard to create a tightly-packed layout/route as I go along. Trying to not let any space go to waste. Hoping for a somewhat intricate micro-layout this time, like a full map condensed to 1024.
Cheers for the ionousbler streams and still hoping for a Bal mapping stream btw.
Lol You Gonna Name The Map 1024gington?
I did want to make a underwater jam map and call it Submergington!
You Should Have, The Pun Works Well
One Month Left
Just a reminder to those who are participating, or are considering doing so.
If you'e never tried making a 1024 map before, it's a good mapping exercise, keeping everything contained within a specific space.
Not Sure I'm Going To Make It In Time
So the usual.
Definitely going to finish the map, though.
Not entirely unexpected given the ultra-intricate nature of the map. Oh well. I do look forward to seeing the finished version at some point.
Work Continues On My Second 1024 Map
Khreathor was kind enough to make a countdown to the deadline.
Calling Out For A Fellow Samaritan
If someone could lend me a hand with testing I would be very grateful! I'm nearly done with this map, it only needs an artpass and different skill settings.
Heres the DL: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g6nwbrtynkw2ec1/xmasjam_spipper.zip?dl=0
Also what is the exact naming convention for this jam? Should I call the map xmasjam_spipper or xmasjam2018_spipper?
