The Edge

The Edge, also known as Q2DM1 is one of the most played deathmatch maps of all time. I had the great honor of being asked to work on a total conversion of this classic Quake II arena for Quake Live in association with Adam 'SyncError' Pyle (QuakeLive associate producer). My tasks for this map were a complete retexturing, detailing, cleaning up some of the brushwork and doing technical optimization. The level is built off the original Quake II source file and deploys a Strogg theme created using partially reworked Quake IV diffuse maps, official QuakeLive assets and some of my own creations. Reworking the map took about 4 weeks of on and off work next to university and other things. Related links:
