Some proper gems in this speedmap pack, Danzadan's and ionous' in particular.

Solomoriah Registered 16 May 2019, 21:02

I particularly enjoyed Newhouse's map... very entertaining, with an interesting atmosphere.

BlindChaos Registered 11 June 2020, 6:15

Here is my review for Temple of the Bone King by muk0r.

In this map there is great detail and atmosphere combining the golden-orange stonework with bookshelves and glowing torches. Set in an ancient crypt which urges the player to explore its secrets.

I enjoyed most of this map, for I only have two complaints against it. They are more of a preference of taste and are nothing against the author's wonderful work.

Firstly, I did not enjoy the underwater sequence that connected the first two areas. Then again I do not enjoy underwater sequences in Quake like I do in other games.

Finally, I thought most of the map was highly detailed and atmospheric, but I think that the ending needed more work, but what was done was outstanding despite the time restraints. The spiderwebs were a great touch.

Because of the atmosphere, that drew me in, I urge the author to go back and give this map more of their artistic touch. Perhaps they can be inspired to create more beautiful maps, in this theme, in the future. I can't believe that this map took that little time to complete. To me it is a keeper for sure. ☠️

Really good HQ map pack. Very much recommended. Doesn't feel as speed mapping at all

MikeTaylor Registered 12 October 2022, 12:37

Codex of Enigma (sm186_danzadan) is basically a perfect small level, with interesting architecture, fun surprises and even a bit of narrative. Top quality work!

MikeTaylor Registered 24 October 2022, 18:10

I didn't much like Spawn Bath (sm186_ing) at first, but I am glad I persevered past my inherent dislike of spawns and got to experience the whole map. It's fun to play through, with satisfying secrets. Most important, on the whole the spawns can be fought in interesting, intelligent ways rather than just having to suck it up and keep shotgunning until you get lucky. Good work!

MikeTaylor Registered 25 October 2022, 10:50

The Suspended Tributaries (sm186_ionous) is the very definition of "short and sweet" -- a brief climb up and around a hollow tower with just enough ammo to make it past the dodgiest points. Pleasant. Insubstantial. Like a speed-map should be :-)

MikeTaylor Registered 25 October 2022, 12:15

I was really enjoying the crazy creativity of Hypertension (sm186_ish) right up to the end, when I reached the top of the map with 52 of 54 kills. Then ... nothing. I need a gold key to make it through the final door to the exit, but I can't find one anywhere, not even with noclipping. Looks like I'm stuck. What a shame.

MikeTaylor Registered 25 October 2022, 16:32

Byway of bad neighbors (sm186_jcr) is another winner marred by what seems to be a bug. I was really enjoying this contrived by fun sequence of set pieces until I reached the third of the gold-key locations where you're ambushed by the shambler and two fiends. When I'd killed them, the staircase back to the entrance door reappeared, but the door wouldn't open and the gold key was was way up overhead (along with some supplies). Maybe there was a puzzle to be solved and I muffed it. But I couldn't find any legitimate way out, so I had to fall back on flying up to the key. PIcking it up opened the door, and I was able to play on to the end. Shame.

MikeTaylor Registered 25 October 2022, 17:01

Temple of The Bone King (sm186_muk) is another fine, inventive map with plenty of mechanisms and a nice sprinkling of combats. It took me a while to realise how I was able to get the silver key, but that's on me. Otherwise the progression was nice and clear throughout.

MikeTaylor Registered 26 October 2022, 10:57

This pack continues to delight with Elder's Ash (sm186_newhouse), one of those clockwork-box maps where none of the level layout makes much sense but it's still fun to make your way through the sequence or surprises and ambushes. Could the monsters possibly live here? No. But somehow I don't mind.

MikeTaylor Registered 26 October 2022, 16:50

Better still is Clay River (sm186_pinchy), a big open space surrounded by rooms, corridors and towers, with 100 kills and many, many ways to get picked off by enemies both distant and nearby. It's one of those maps where the first challenge is just finding a way to stay alive long enough to accumulate some weapons and ammo -- most invigorating. My only quibble would be that the ending is rather abrupt, especially as I was left with 11 monsters not found and killed.

MikeTaylor Registered 27 October 2022, 11:43

Sarkistic Spite (sm186_prengle) keeps up the high quality with a cathedral-like terracotta space surrounded by corridors. This is another where my only complaint is the abrupt ending: I approached the silver-key door with 46 of the 52 kills, expecting a final battle beyond. Instead, I walked through and that was the end. (The last six monsters exploded like the do at the end of the House of Chthon.) Really nice to look at, though, and fun to work through.

MikeTaylor Registered 27 October 2022, 12:29

The untitled map sm186_sham is set on a floating base, mostly outside with some indoor sequences, with the goal of progressing to an exit teleporter that you can see from the start but which needs a walkway to be extended to it. It's good, but not inspired, and suffers from a rather 1990s aesthetic: blocky and overlit.

MikeTaylor Registered 27 October 2022, 14:09

Scarlet Scourge (sm186_vaf) is another in the short-but-sweet category, and another reinforcing my sense that the way speedmapping was approached here was all about maintaining quality and compromising, where necessary, on quality. A good trade-off for sure.

MikeTaylor Registered 28 October 2022, 11:51

Finally, Humility (sm186_yoder) is an excellent end to an excellent pack. It takes place mostly outdoors on a floating fortress, and features plenty of secrets and mechanisms to play with. I never figured out how to get some of the visible goodies (e.g. the pent) but that's all to the good -- life should have some mystery.

MikeTaylor Registered 28 October 2022, 11:53

All in all, this is an excellent pack, well worth anyone's time. Despite the bugs in a couple of maps that prevented me from finishing them legitimately (or, perhaps just unreasonably hard puzzles), I've awarded the full five stars. There's just so much goodness here, and really no clunkers.
