Level Editing

    I do some level editing, so I would just like to say a few things. I was looking around yesterday for stuff. First If you
    are looking for prefabs look below. If you need help on level editing look below. Or need some better compiling utils.

    Prefabs
 
    For the best and latest prefabs check out the Quake 2 Prefab Park.
    The best prefab artist I have seen yet is Arzknight. His Prefabs are also stored at Quake 2 Prefab Park.

    Level Editing Help

    Check Out Rust the best level editing help site. With tutorials on almost every entity.

    Compiling Utils

    Z at Zanshin's GLDojo has modified the QBSP2, QVIS3, and QRAD3 so they preform better on a PPRO/PII Processor.

Level Contest

The Winning Map Will Be Announced Today Around 7:00 PM CST. So Stop By To See Who The Winner Is.
