Quinstance - Editor Independent Quake Prefabs

23 10 15 - 10:56

This is a new tool that allows the use of func_instance in Quake map editing. The idea is that a func_instance is updated in real time as you edit them. I can't explain it as well as Func_Msgboard, so check out their post and comment on their thread.

IqeBrowser Bugfix

21 08 15 - 10:59

Several days ago IqeBrowser 2.11 was released. Apparently a memory access violation crept in there so a new version was release. If you got the previous one, download 2.12 & replace the old one. 

IqeBrowser is a program to open and modify various 3D model formats for export to the Inter Quake Model format (IQM or IQE). You can see a video if it in action below.

Map Jam 6: Fire and Brimstone Released

20 08 15 - 10:48

Map Jam, the Quake mapping get together when anyone and everyone maps out the theme, released their Map Jam 6 map pack. The theme this mapping session was (as the title suggests) Fire and Brimstone. Thirteen mappers participated and released a variety of maps. All single player so you gaming loners (like me) can have a blast!

It's recommended (highly) that you use the Quakespasm engine for this bunch of maps as it's the only engine tested that had no issues running every single one of them.

You can download the map over at Quaketastic and can get the Quakespasm engine over at Sourceforge (note: Sourceforge has been re-working some installers you download from it's site to add extra downloads, if you download the engine and it tries to install something else it has nothing to do with the Quakespasm engine developers).

Leave your comments over at the Func_Msgboard commentents and thanks to Func_Msgboard for providing the news!

IqeBrowser 2.11 Out

19 08 15 - 10:36

What is IqeBrowser? IqeBrowser is a program to browse IQE, IQM (Inter-Quake Model format) and many other 3D models. Any 3D model can be saved as IQM (a binary format) or IQE (a text format) file. Some model processing tools are integrated to resize, shift, rotate, reskin ... the model and also to create/ modify skeletons or animations.

IQM/IQE is a format supported in the Darkplace engine (Quake) and Yet Another 3D Adventure Game (Quake 2).

The latest feature is animation re-targeting, so you can take (for example) a walk animation from one character and apply it to another character. You can download the latest version from and be sure to check out the authors project YA3DAG!
