    This is a content dump from quakeone in order to preserve this great work. I am not the author nor am I pretending to be. If Seven ever joins I will change him to the author of this post.

    The “small mod compilation” aka SMC started a few years ago with Footsteps + New fire + Nailposition-fix. Over the years I extended it by adding new features.

    Main target of the SMC is to keep the gameplay of original Quake, but bring new features / ideas to increase the playing experience and fun.

    Many users also requested to add optional new monsters, because it blows new life into Quake and brings variation. In the meantime we have 18 new monster types and have thereby more than doubled Quake´s minions !

    The biggest advantages of the SMC:

    Almost all of its features (including the new monster types) can be enabled / disabled via cvars (please read the included readme.txt for details) so you can adjust Quake to your personal liking.
    It works with all Quake maps (incl. mission pack 1 + 2) as well as ALL fan-made maps/episodes that do not include their own ‘progs.dat’. So you can enjoy this mod in hundreds and hundreds of maps.

    Here is a quick overview of the SMC features:

    Visual effects:

    • 3 flame types: polygon, sprite, particle flames (incl. fire and candles)
    • All particle effects reworked and enhanced (with various options to choose from)
    • Implemented Rain + Snow effects (with rain + thunder sounds)
    • Water / Lava / Slime particle splashes + sound effects (for all projectiles and entities)
    • Particle muzzleflashes and impact effects for weapons (also for monster weapons)
    • Player + monster bleeding when wounded and leave blood puddles when killed
    • Various additional gore / blood / flesh effects when shooting/gibbing monsters/corpses
    • Many new monster animations and new visual effects to make them more impressive
    • Flies buzz around corpses, gibs and zombies
    • Many new environment effects / sounds to make Quake more “living”/realistic in general
    • Added trails to monsters projectiles
    • Statue monsters have debris + dust particles instead of blood particles in MP2
    • Various extra visual and particle effects for player, monsters, teleporters, slipgates / gates
    • Additional underwater + inslime + in lava effects (colored view, dust / bubble particles)

    Just a small but important update regarding SMC, I have corresponded with the ever-helpful Seven over the last week and he has said that he is Ok with us replicating the SMC information here for the purposes of archiving what I consider to be a precious resource. Ever mindful of what other less scrupulous individuals did with copies of the SMC mod, I have assured him that full credit will be given to him as the owner of the original work (which MG has already done even though MG clearly put a lot of work in to getting it here and to this standard) .

    Kind regards

    You are welcome to move everything and anything you want, Talisa. I’d be proud to have your work here. I have a number of important posts as well but, I’m not so sure I care. It’s more stuff where I could just save the pages to my computer.

    I wonder how much Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 Extended would cry if I told it to turn all of quakeone into a pdf. Probably a whole lot. I think I’m going to try it anyway. If I set the right filters it should stay on the Quakeone domain and maybe that won’t be so bad. If I don’t set the right filters it’s going to try and turn half the internet into a pdf.

    hmmm… your post got me thinking it may be a good idea to move my other threads from quakeone about my creations to over here too, to prevent them from getting lost to the void as well

    i made a bunch more stuff for quake, like skins for other member’s models,
    multiple more models for quake and its mission-packs, and some packs

    think ill start with the models & skins that i made for Quake’s 2nd mission-pack:
    ROGUE aka Dissolution of Eternity, which has all my favourite weapons, monsters & maps

    SMC’s is one of the best Quake mods I ever played and it’s nice to see it propagate online instead of dying inside an agonizing blob of bits overrun by spambots.

    I sent him a PM yesterday and an email today to ask to ask if he was okay with me replicating his SMC work. Obviously I didn’t know this page was being built but I will update it as with his reply as soon as he comes back to me.

    Kind regards

    oh yeah sure, i could send him a PM over at quakeone to extend him an invitation to come check this site out

    other than that, i cant really think of any other way to contact him?
    i could maybe add a comment to the ‘discussion’ tab on his youtube channel?

    i dont have his email or any other way to contact him otherwise

    .

    i could also invite gdiddy to come check this site out and join?
    i have his email and from time to time chat with him through emails.

    im sure gdiddy would also be delighted to see a new quake-dedicated site thats active

    I did everything I could to represent him to the fullest. I even turned the entire body of his youTube work into a playlist (took forever) and installed it in the video gallery.

    Mr Burns intends to contact him and invite him here. Maybe you should too, if you know how.

    seven’s SMC is one of the best mods ever made for quake that totally deserves to be preserved
    and definitely doesnt deserve to get lost to the void due to quakeone’s slow painfull death

    its without a doubt one the must-have mods for regular quake and mission-packs
    and for making any maps that dont use their own progs.dat new and fresh again

    or just if you want quake to be a bit more challenging and varying with all the new unique monsters and some of the random rare appearances of more-powerfull monsters.

    people in the past often compared seven’s SMC to brutal doom, but imo brutal doom has nothing on the SMC and is nowhere near as amazing and expansive as the SMC <3

    .

    i hope seven will one day look at this site and will feel inspired to play & mod quake again

    from what i saw it seemed the slow burning-down of quakeone killed seven’s desire to mod quake too.

    i hope that if seven ever looks at this site that he will find back the joy and desire to go back to modding quake once more thanks to the friendly community here

    It took a lot of working with the raw html and some compromises but the above post should basically be identical to Seven’s most recent SMC post.
