The definitive Quake engine map editor GtkRadiant is now at version 1.6.3, with the notable addition of support for Quake Live, as mentioned by TTimo:

The main item for this release is the addition of QuakeLive support. This includes support for the encrypted paks, and png textures support (including on models). bspc.exe (for bot navigation files), and a version of q3map2 with QuakeLive support is provided as well.

The Urban Terror support has been improved as well. The default compiler for UrT is now the modified compiler that was release by FrozenSand, with the lighting model that UrT level designers are accustomed to.

Go get it!

Maia Kickstarter

November 4th, 2012 by Crusader

Hello!

Thanks to @Scahrossar for letting us know that Maia now has a Kickstarter:

Inspired heavily by the 70′s Sci-fi aesthetic, Maia is a colony management simulator where you must keep your colonists safe, fed and happy. Liberally influenced by nineties god games, the game will have a dark sense of humour and more toys to play with than you can shake a Molyneux at.

The project goal is £100,042; a playable release is currently targeted to mid-January.
