GMD Speed Mapping Contest! By R1CH - Sunday, July 29, 2001
This should be amusing :)

You will have 3 hours to make a gloom map based on a theme which will be announced in #speedmapping on irc.edgeirc.net on Saturday 4th August 1400 (2pm) EDT / 1900 (7pm) BST.

After the 3 hours are up, you must send your complete/rushed/half-assed .map to me, so I can verify no one continues working on it after the time is up. You then have as long as you need to compile it, and send it to me.

Maps will be judged by a panel of reviewers (not from the GMD team).

All abilities welcome, check out the forum thread if you want to join in or have any comments :)

Duck and Cover.... By Saig - Monday, July 23, 2001
HOB released a revision to his infamous map "Infested Slimeways". Yes, you probably played the map and read the review, and are now wondering why HOB even bothered with a revision anyway. Well, give it a try Id say. It cant be much worse than the original, and if it is, I will notably point that out with a crude review filled with angst and frustration. Anyways, grab the map here and try it out before cursing HOB. :)

Updated "Quick download" By R1CH - Thursday, July 12, 2001
Well since so many of you have been complaining about fileplanet, I've updated the "Quick map download" script at the top of this page to use OneCall.Net's Gloom FTP Server instead of fileplanet. Should be a bit more reliable.
