House of Chthon remade from scratch for modern sourceports! New entryway and corridors+extra rooms. Not sure how useful the new lightning trap is going to be in DM but I think it's pretty cool - activated through 4 buttons to "charge" it. As an added bonus, Chthon spawns in SP when you grab the RL.
Any feedback is welcome :)

Looks great!! It's been added to the CRx server at denver.crxquake.com:26000. Hopefully we'll play it sometime soon and let you know any feedback. I've also made a .rtlights file for it as well. Not sure if you know but there seems to be a missing texture as well up top(not a big deal as you can't see it anyway in normal conditions). Darkplaces also throws this error at map load: maps/dm-chthon.bsp: Texture "__TB_empty" is corrupt or incomplete.

Thanks for looking at it! Looking forward to the review.
The gray grid texture in the screenshot is my equivalent of Caulk. I adopted the "only texture [properly] the faces visible to player" method. Seems to make my brain happy. Since Q1 doesn't have caulk, I just used that - it's part of the prototype wad. As for the "__TB_empty" thing, it appears I completely forgot to fix that. Oops. In trenchbroom editor, any untextured face has that - must have untextured a brush by accident.

may need to add something like this to dp


Defend against empty textures.
E.g. __TB_empty in qbj_grue.bsp

Thanks woods, will take a look. Not sure it's been fixed in qss-m but my old version 1.5.2, the texture is missing as well.

I didn't realize this was the proper way to do it, thanks! I posted this thread in the description of the resource post.
