Tastyspleen 500 Returns!

16 06 17 - 17:14

2017-06/ts500_banner.png

What is the Tastyspleen 500 you ask?  It's a 500 frag limit FFA over on the Tastyspleen servers!  The event is being held on June 24th @8pm EST (handy dandy timezone converter, just select "America/Toronto" as the "From Time Zone" and then pick yours).   It's a cinch to join too: just connect to the server!  You can connect via the server's IP address (67.228.69.114:27999).  

If you're interesting in doing some other Quake 2 gaming, check out Tastyspleen's list of servers.  Also, they have a Quake 2 Starter Pack if you've never played but want to give it a try.  I HIGHLY recomend you give it a try!

QuakeCon BYOC Info

15 03 17 - 11:16

QuakeCon 2017 announced the BYOC registration setup for this year. The quick and dirty (details here) is:

March 30 – BYOC UAC VIP tickets ($400, limit 32)

April 6 – BYOC Quakecon Done Quick ($150, limit 300)

April 13 – BYOC Select a seat ($50, no limit stated).

April 24 – General Admission (free)

As usual the last several years, BYOC costs $ while the general admission to the event is free. If you're in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and think that because you don't have any spare cash so it's not worth going to, the non-BYOC side of the event is amazing. You should still go, it's like a county fair for Quake fans, but free! :) $50 for a BYOC event for a weekend isn't bad either. Right now I just checked and flights for me to Dallas are super-cheap (under $300 round trip, cheaper then the last time I went in 2009!) so hey, if I can come up with several hundred extra buckaroos I might go! :) 

The QuakeCon staff also gave an explanation of what and why things are different this year vs last year, so give that a read. You can read that here.

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.  You can download the latest version here.  New features since 2.15 are:

  • Skeleton/Model creator cuboid
  • A new dialog. Creates models based on the skeleton and cuboids.
  • Creates minecraft like models.
  • Models can be imported from from the MCSkin3D application.
  • Reuse of already existing minecraft model skins is possible.
  • The current loaded model is exported as a Q3 player model.
  • Resort joints tree by recursive walking the tree and bring the child's in a proper order.
  • Re-links a joint to an other parent or make it a root joint.
  • If meshes share the same texture, now all meshes are displayed. The selected mesh shows white lines, other meshes show light blue lines.

What is a Quake 2 Unit? It's a set of maps for Q2, similar to an episode of Quake. The plot is that you got dropped off a dropship prematurely and work his way to the surface.

This unit is by colonthreeenterprises and you can view his tumblr page here and download it here.

Thank's to Func_Msgboard for the heads up!

Today is Quake Expo's Booth Preview Day!  :D  Head on over to Quake Expo 2016 to preview several of the booths that will be showing next month!

What is Quake Expo?  It's an online showing of all things Quake, and like an Expo in real life it runs only for a limited time!  Gamers/Quakers with Quake content to show can read the FAQ on how to share their creations/ideas with the Quake community.  Use #qexpo to spread on unsocial media!  :)
