Quake 1 Tools for Mac OS X
1:51 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

While the editing and creation of maps for Quake 1 is an esoteric art at best, the port of the open-source version of this classic shooter may inspire new interest in a game which those with the skills can now change to fit their liking, not just play as-is. Quake utilities author Giles Williams has recognized this fact by updating several of his Quake utilities (originally ports of PC Quake tools) to run native on Mac OS X. So far the tools ported are a map compiler and "vis" tool, used to prepare an edited map for testing and playing in Quake.

Giles indicates that he will be working on more complete versions in the future, good news for those tinkering with the OS X versions of Quake. Visit his Quake Tinkertoys site for downloads and details.
