This document is intended to be a resource for Quake mappers (and statistics junkies) detailing statistics, information, and documentation of the official Quake singleplayer and multiplayer levels.


This includes texture WADs used in each level, the level's author, the music track used, and the official title of each level. I hope you find this useful!

SOURCE FILES


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The available source files of Quake and its mission packs. Extremely useful for design and technical reference, and making mods.


DISSOLUTION OF ETERNITY:

QuakeC Source


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


TEXTURE WADS


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is an archive of official Quake texture WADs for use in mapping software, like Trenchbroom. Unless specified, these are the genuine originals used during the development of said project.


DISSOLUTION OF ETERNITY:

rogue.wad


* reconstructed from BSPs


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


MAPPING FGDS


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


An FGD (Forge Game Definitions) file is a plaintext script designed to define all of the entities used in a game, for level design tools like Worldcraft, Hammer, Trenchbroom, and others.


Below are the original Worldcraft Quake FGDs from late 1997, preserved for posterity. I've also included my personal Quake FGD (Trenchbroom only), which has been updated to include all of the modern features provided by ericw's map compile tools. I also revamped all of the comments and help text, to make it easier for beginners to understand what each keyvalue does.


If these files do not automatically download, simply right click on the link and select "Save Link As..."
