Another CataMap By Cataclaw - Tuesday, April 29, 2003
Cataclaw's at it again. When will the madness end?
This latest pile of evil is called "OMGHAX!". See for yourself... Get it here: omghax.zip (642kb)

And then there was Opeth... By Cataclaw - Wednesday, April 23, 2003
Everyone's been bugging me for a new map and [PeSTiCiDE] gave me a wonderful theme/idea for one... Enjoy 'Opeth'. You can download the monstrous 16.6mb opeth.zip here (PlanetGloom) or here (R1CH.net - recommended)

A map or 4 rooms randomly mashed together? By R1CH - Saturday, April 19, 2003
At 700k per room this is set to be perhaps the smallest map with the largest filesize ever! Featuring custom png textures, you can perhaps have 5 seconds of fun with HYDRAC (2.88mb).

Two brand new maps just for you! By R1CH - Thursday, April 17, 2003
Devastator Mighty Trust Crusher (?) (827kb) by Nunca and glgxzone (1.8mb) featuring all custom textures by cX_GX.

Updated All Map Pack By R1CH - Saturday, April 5, 2003
There's a new all map pack, containing all maps up to the date of this news post.

Gloom.All.Map.Pack.04.04.03.zip (197mb, zip format)
Gloom.All.Map.Pack.04.04.03.exe (146mb, 7zip self extracting exe format)

To use either of these, extract with folders to your quake2/gloom/ directory. Enjoy!

An end to the better.bsp hell By R1CH - Wednesday, April 2, 2003
With the new NetLuxe Gloom server running on linux, I find why there are two versions of better.bsp floating around... one of them crashes on linux. I have now replaced the versions on OneCall and the FTP with the linux compatible version, so you'll need to redownload it if you get a "local map version differs from server" error.
