Another beta from Chamooze By R1CH - Tuesday, February 29, 2000
The highly originally named 'Chagloom_beta' has a new name and a new beta - check out Battle for station Murdine Beta

"Battle for station Murdine is currently in Beta, there may still be bugs in the map. If you find something that you do not think was intended to be, please send an email to me, explaining as good as you can what you believe to be wrong, either in text, with a demo or a screenshot." - Give him some feedback at torose at sign acc.umu.se.

Bugport missions release... By R1CH - Sunday, February 27, 2000
Sunday the 5th of March at 10pm EST. That's the date and time of Bugport missions and Gloom 1.2b being released! These are some VERY cool missions based on the cool bugport map by Bidmix - check the gloom chat room (use mIRC to connect to thepeel.inside3d.net in #gloom) or #bugport.

Quite how Bidmix does this I'm not sure, he seems to release everything at 3am local time :) -- For more info, check the Bugport website.

Their Finest Hour By R1CH - Tuesday, February 22, 2000
Here's some nice shots of Saig's upcoming map, Their Finest Hour. Originally intended as a remake of Sewer, I think you can see that this map may have a lot more to offer.
One of those door thingiesNice outside place
Some broken stuffLook into the stars...
Some reactor-core type thing (I think)The view from your Hotel window (perhaps)

New map (beta)... By R1CH - Thursday, February 17, 2000
As Chamooze describes it, "a Pretty small map, human base with a system of caverns beneath." - Get the beta here and go nag your favourite admins to put it in the map cycle, or play it offline and find bugs (after all, it is his first map :)

Download Chagloom_beta here (743k), and email feedback to Chamooze.

A request... By R1CH - Thursday, February 17, 2000
A small request to help me with the upcoming GMD review script. I am not sure of the authors of a few maps without readmes - in particular, gloom2 and gloom4. If you know the author please let me know.

But this is mainly a request to mappers: Please include the following information in the readme (and ALWAYS make a readme!! :)
- Map name (as shown in Q2)
- Map filename (eg, mymap.bsp)
- Size in mb of the ZIPped archive
- Date of release
- Your name, email and web site (if applicable)
- Credits to people whose work you have used

This simple information shouldn't take long to add, and it greatly helps in archiving and sorting maps which I am now doing. Thanks.

News Script By R1CH - Tuesday, February 15, 2000
Well this is the first visible change on the GMD - a CGI based News Script allowing us to post news much quicker and without nearly as much hassle. Thanks to the NewsPro team for the script.

Just wait for my review script to get finished... :)

2 New Maps... By R1CH - Tuesday, February 15, 2000
I tried to not break the silence but there are 2 new maps. One is by ProdigyXL and looks extreme nice and well made (GloomXL), the other one is by someone who spent just 3 hours making the map (Rush Hour). Both maps should be really fun.

GMD is alive! By R1CH - Tuesday, February 15, 2000
We are back, the staff member list changed, the GMD won't die in the near future. We will always have all maps and some nice addon paks as well as important gloom news. For the sake of gloom you should take a look at http://www.planetgloom.com/adoptamod and vote for gloom on the left bar. Also Bidmix told me that his Bugport missions will be in final beta stage in about 2 weeks. KarnagE and some other mapper should also have some new high quality maps for us so stay tuned for updates.

Derelict-SE Review by Devilwarrior By R1CH - Monday, February 7, 2000
Finally a new map review. I decided to get up off my ass and review Lifer's 1.2 map Derelict SE. You can check it out over on the side bar. I'll try to get more reviews done in the next week or two, this site needs some updates...
