Rain! By Cataclaw - Thursday, December 27, 2001
Interested in adding a little rain to your next gloom map? As mentioned last week, Llurk has come up with a method of creating realistic rain in Quake2. He's put up a great tutorial on how to do rain, and you can find it here: Llurk-Rain(tm) Tutorial.

Also, a new map is in the works... Star Trek(R) - Gloom...
See for yourself.

Yep it's a new Defiler map.
So what do you expect? You are WRONG, this is not just art work. This map offers great gameplay and yet certain stunning visuals that you have never seen before (in q2):

Chamooze just remembered he made a shiny new fixed beta version of his old map a long time ago. Well we haven't waited for it but here it is (unexpectedly surprising us all (from behind out of the darkness))
beware: Murdine BETA2
