Quite off beat for The DaZ Dranz Level Cave, but kool is kool. DaZ has cooked up a very nice FPS themed wallpaper that you really have to see to appreciate. It's well worth a look and a snag.
The Agony of Alcatraz
Quake III Arena News | 7/5/2001 | 18:33 PST - Pappy-R
Alcatraz of The BigHouse has released a level tonight instead of posting a review. His first Quake III effort is the "Source of Agony level that uses custom textures from various sources to create an industrial flavoured Dm level. After a quick couple minutes in the map, I think it would kick some serious booty for Q3 FFA. Scoop this one, it's a hell of a first attempt.
Pappy-R Gets Talkin'
Community News | 7/5/2001 | 9:51 PST - HellChick
Because Pappy's too shy to talk about himself, I'm here to tell you guys about the spotlight GameSpy.com just did on him. He's been outrunning us for a while on an interview, but we wore him down and he finally relented. So if you're looking to find out more about your favorite site director and mine, head over to GameSpy! Then email him and tell him what a smooth talker he is.

Not quite Quake, but near and dear to many a Quake fan is the upcoming Return to Castle Wolfenstein by Grey Matter. There's a new interview at "Achtung Wolfenstein!" where Thrrrpptt! gets to quiz the crew behind the Quake III TA powered sequel.
Thrrrpptt!: Are there any surprises left? Are there any kind of enemies, weapons, or environments that we haven't heard about yet?
Gray Matter: Of course there are! But you don't really think I'd let you in on all of them would you? Some of the most 'killer' enemies haven't been revealed yet� and won't be until you experience them for the first time when playing the game. It's the same with some of the weapons, environments and other characters in the game (not all of whom are BJ's enemies). In the tradition of Wolfenstein there will be quite the handful of surprises in all aspects of the game. Most of which will need to be uncovered as the story unfolds.
PCZone Gets To Thinking
Community News | 7/5/2001 | 7:12 PST - Pappy-R
Following on the heels of the press release that got so many people thinking due to the topic and it's shear lack of info:
NEW GAMES FROM ID SOFTWARE.
The PCZone UK got to thinking about the whole thing very deeply and have come up with a theory. It's all in print as "Prepare For Quake4?", but what do you think?
AUG. 9 - 12 -- MESQUITE, TEXAS
Quake News | 7/5/2001 | 6:19 PST - Pappy-R
I got a mail in that there's a demo for XWar for GLQuake (Quake 1 OpenGL). This is going to be a new game using the engine under the license agreement, and there's really no info on the site or the demo as to what's coming or how much is all new, but it's a pretty sweet little demo none the less. Quake 1 nuts should give this one a look. Any info you have or can get on XWar, just drop me a line.

Map and model maker, Bubba is trying something a bit different, and quite bold for a Quake III map.
My next map (Cetacean) will take at least two
months to complete. I'll post the
progress on a weekly basis so you
can see the development of the map
and models. It will be a scale model
of the Monterey Bay Aquarium with
the Round-About from the Stienhart
in San Francisco. A bold project but
it will be a trip to see and play!
You can check out some shots today of a few fish models, layout pics and textures right at Bubba's Arena.

Are Friends Gothic?
Quake III Arena News | 7/4/2001 | 16:03 PST - Pappy-R
Kit Carson's latest level is a gothic little slice for Quake III that aims to blend some interesting qualities.

Pay Kit a visit for the goods.

In a new interview at PnP, things get down to the basics on the topic of server admins, cheating and online gaming in general with Dekard of sites like Game Admins and Antibotics.
PnP: When selecting admin(s) for your server what do you look for in a person?
