Getting Started: your first box map
Connecting two rooms, doors, and visportals
Pipes and Patches

» Blade Yautja Patch
Blade Yautja already has a patch! This Patch will enable the HUD in 3rd person view and keep the camera from clipping through the walls. This was meant to be included but was overlooked. the two .pk4 files just get added to the BY mod folder. Download it from moddb.com.
Blade Yautja is an idTech4 based adventure from a different Universe with creatures with advanced technology and superior hunting skills this mod will be that adventure. The mod will include new weapons new locations new models, new textures ,sounds and enemies to battle through.

» Can it run DOOM? Yes it can!
My brother sent me an e-mail yesterday with a BBC News article about a DOOM port. On a CANON printer! Yes, you can run DOOM a CANON Pixma printer! Who knew? Anyway, he also linked me to a site called “It Runs Doom!”, 100% about running our favorite classic demon shooter, DOOM on nearly anything. It's pretty neat to read and see what people are doing with the “old” game.
Is DOOM the most ported game ever? Not sure, I'm wondering if PacMan or Super Mario Bros could take that crown, but it very well could be!
» R U B I C O N R U M B L E P A C K for Quake
The Rubicon Rumble Pack for Quake has been released. It's a four map pack based off Rubicon 2 by Metslime/CZG. The mappack is getting rave reviews over at Func_Msgboard. I downloaded it and like it. It requires the QuakeSpasm engine R980, which you can get here.
It's available to download at Quaddicted and Dropbox. I took a couple screens of when I started playing, click “Read More” to play them. Be sure to read the readme, you need to set specific commandlines to run the mod. Enjoy!
» Doom and Doom 2 as... shaders?
I guess I now know what a procedural shader is, and it is impressive (when it's Doom related). Found this in my Twitter feed this morning, retweeted by John Carmack. It's the start of Doom's E1M1 in an interactive shader. Don't worry if it looks like it froze your browser, it takes some time to load up.
Anyway check out the interactive Doom one here and look at the Doom 2 one here.

I'll let the video speak for itself, click “Read More” to watch.
