Why do you need it? As is, the current version works just find and has all the content you might want. This isn't supposed to be a mod with constant updates, but rather sporadic updates when new content is created. That being said, 75 has been busy, and he's been pretty much the only one adding content, so there is no new content.
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

I could help with textures, I can make fairly decent ones.

I'm sorry awesomedude, but you really can't. Granted, your textures these days are a LOT better than they used to be, but you still haven't quite figured it out yet. One thing though: once you've realized how to draw realistically (with shading and everything) you need to take a step back and figure out how to purposefully make your sprites unrealistic, in order to fit the same style as other Doom/Chex sprites. Now unrealistic does not mean undetailed. The more detail the merrier, but you have to make it cartoony while not making it all the same color/shade. Take a closer look at most of the flemoid sprites. Even the sections that seem to be 'solid color' are actually textured with multiple different shades in various patterns. Your next step is to figure out how to apply said patterns to your own textures (note that every texture/sprite needs its own pattern, usually found through experimentation).

I can't sprite with good shading, but I can make physical drawings with good shading. That being said, I can't really make very good CQ drawings. They look realistic if you zoom in 5 times, but otherwise look like a cartoon. I have to brush up a bit on my spriting anyway.

Just wondering, when are you going to release Chex Pack P17?

I usually only bump the major revision when a full set of maps is done, e.g., I might release P17 when all of E4 is completed, which unfortunately might be quite a while (though I do have a new map for E4 started, a lot of the layout and monster placement is done). While it would be cool to finish off E4, I'm working full time, I've got school and other projects taking up what little free time's left, and I'm an extremely slow single player / coop mapper, so it would be a nice thing to have but it's a long way off....

If you'd like to help, would you mind playing through what's already there in E4? Let me know what you think of it, QG and I really haven't got much of a response.

With that said, a minor release like P16-5 will probably come a lot sooner, as soon as CM2109 sends over his edited LMS01 with his fixes, I'll release that, it will also contain some tweaks to Zorchmatch Arena.

EDIT: @WindowsVistaLover if you have any specific requests for game modes, etc... let me know, remember that Chex Pack already has quite a few Zorchmatch, Duel, CTF, and survival maps

I could help with textures, I can make fairly decent ones.

Thanks, feel free to post them here and I'll take a look at them. If I can find a use for them, I'll put them in and credit you.

Why did I see a server that used a file called chexstpack-p16.pk3?

Do you mean ISP WEBA :: Chex Quest CTF ?

That server's not mine, I've seen them around for years though. They're running an out of date version. I'd ask them to update but unfortunately it seems to be coming from Russia and I don't speak Russian.

I'm fine with testing the new LMS01 whenever you are. I'd have sent you a request already, but I don't know how to contact you now, since Pidgin ain't working.
