Quake 1 mapper 'Ionous' has announced the start of the 7th Quake map jam over at Func_Msgboard. The jams run for around 2 weeks and must meet specific guidelines such as a particular texture set or a theme. Previous jams have created some very nice map packs which can all be found here.

The theme this time around is 'Back to Base' so IDbase style maps (id's industrial style) with plenty of water and pipes. The quake mod Quoth is also to be included and the deadline for finished maps is the 11th August 2016.

You can also find progress from various mappers over at the Func_Msgboard forums as well as some of the mappers streaming their work, usually Ionous and Daz. There's also information on tools needed and some reference images on the announcement post.
