Pretty Good, But...
the conbsole says the map is missing 44 textures! WTF?
Also, the exit door has a weird texture mapping on its edges. Could see the gold key mapped in a wrong way.
The map needs more monsters in nightmare mode.
This map looks great, but crash after save :(
Are you using "quakespasm-spike-admod", if so don't. I don't know what the issues are but yeah, it crashes.
Will Fix For Quakespasm Spiked
Need to simplify my texture wad paths and recompile. I'll have a fix available tomorrow. I'll clean up the missing textures then too. None of them are visible in-game.
Yet Another Perfect Map From You!
Got into a trap while jumping off from pipe.
Сould get out via noclip.
#4 damage_inc: No, I don't. I use just regular Quakespasm 0.93 on Linux.
# Comrade Beep: Thanks, I appreciate it, because I did several attempts on hard skill and this is too much for me (I can't bit it without save game). It's pity, because the gameplay is very good. I know that "long wad paths" makes this save game crash, but it's common. I would like to fix it by myself, if I could.
Archive Has Been Updated
Missing textures fixed
Clipping issues fixed
Shorter wad path should fix the save bug
Fixed inside door texture on big door
Link is the same. Please let me know if you run across anything else.

Now, everything works great, beautiful map, thank you again :)
Cosmaty, I'm using Quakespasm Spiked (QSS) 0.93.2 on Linux. I didn't have any problems running the map.
I enjoyed the map combat and visuals. I finished the map in around 12 minutes 75/75 kills and 1/6 secrets.
#10 aftershok: Read the all thread, please. If you downloaded this map after March, 25, you have fixed version, so there is no problem. If you were played original version on QSS, maybe spike get rid with this issue.
Save Bug In QSS Wasn't 100% Reproducible
It's relation to the very long wad paths means that it overuns memory space. For some people, nothing happens. For others, you get a crash on save. It's a weird one.
#12 Comrade Beep: Memory space, you mean RAM?
Another Great Map!
Very nice. One of those maps where the encounters just keeping popping up and pushing you along... feels like a roller coaster!
Thanks For Another Great Map!
A couple remarks on my playthrough (spoiler alert):
(1) In the final battle, I had the vore begin in-fighting with the robot gunners, but it led to an awkward silence. The fighting stalled because each creature, on its path to the other, was firing into a wall or not at all.
(2) I can't for the life of me figure out the secret in the elevator room (medkit and ammo, I think). I know it's there because noclip, but how to open the door?
Thanks again for the awesome map
^^^ (2) Hint (possible Spoiler):
When some 'buttons' have to be shot, some others have to be pushed... usually nearby ;)
Oh I'm confused, my comment above was for beep1m1. Time to try this one!
OK, I actually played this one now. Really nice. I love the look-and-feel... it's hard to get variety into a basemap aesthetic while keeping it coherent and also still Quake-y but this is good stuff.
Fun short map with some frantic moments and good monster mixes/placements/adds in the fights. Satisfying return loops to the main room opening up the various paths.
I played on skill 2 so I have a thought about the "no health packs except inside secrets" thing that this map does on skill 2/3. An interesting idea that gave the map some nice extra tension to begin with... but I think to _really_ make it work, the combat setups need to be more carefully placed to avoid cheap-feeling ambushes. Especially from DOT enemies like the flamers. Probably I could _technically_ have foreseen/avoided some of those but I don't think Quake really lends itself to creeping around tactical play. When I suddenly take a chunk of damage "out of nowhere" in a normal Quake map I'll usually keep rolling, but this setup without healthpacks made it more likely that I would just savescum and reload.
Don't want to end on a critical note :-) so I'll add that overall I still rate it highly. A great companion piece / followon for beep1m1 and yet another map w/ strong visual design from Beep.
Unexpected found that map doe's not work with last revision of Quakespasm-Spiked_Win_x64 (QSS) 0.93.2 Compile Date: Fri Apr 17 02:46:43 UTC 2020
Player can't move at the beginning of map.
If you noclip and move away from the player start, does it work then?
I don't test with QSS, but I can try to fix this.
noclip ON allows moving, I made few steps forward and climbing some up over the floor, then
noclip OFF and it kicks me behind the level
I tried with an 2018 version of quakespasm-spiked that i have here on my PC and it seems to work fine.
Since i don't know if you use win32 or win64, i uploaded both versions for you here:
