Single Status Update
Just for shits and giggles, I recreated a section of my Quake map in Heretic. It took 1/10th of the time and ended up looking a bit better (at least IMO). The second screenshot in particular looks a lot better, though you can't in the PNG tell since you can't see the flickering light from the fires.
Maybe I'll do Heretic next instead of Quake? Decisions decisions...
