Thank you to Paradies for contributing. Here is his interview...

1. What are your top 3 levels that you've made?

facial reconstruction [paradm3]
torn apart [paradm2]
the temple of sun [jndm6]

2. Why have you chosen these levels.

the temple is made for a total carnage. it is very interconnected and loaded with guns.

torn apart is made for hide and seek type of duel: there's room for four players but health and ammo are enough for only two.

facial reconstruction has the best visuals, and is kinda cross between the previous two: it's loaded with weapons and at the same time gives you a scary sneaking game. it can be used in every way.

3. Which is your least favourite level, if you think you have one!

at the beginning i released a lot of trash: bunker and eat your heart out are the most bizarre maps i have ever created.

4. What map editor do you use?


5. What level editing tips do you have for other authors?

don't run around with scissors! oh, you mean mapping tips? umm... never build more rooms than actually necessary.

6. How long have you been making Quake/Quake 2 maps.

about one year and nine months

7. What do you enjoy about making maps.

the load of emails from naked chicks i get after releasing a map......and of course playing my own maps in servers is so satisfying.

8. What plans you have for the future, with map making in mind. (Say if you got a job in the industry related to map making).

of course my dream is to score myself a full-time job in the gaming industry, but then again i like the no-life amateur mapping community.

9. Which is your favourite game out of Quake and Quake2 and why?

empire strikes back. because it's the best one.

10. Some self publicity, if you have a website what is it called and what is its address
