MickyC's Speed Mapping Guide v11-04-2016
67.1 If you’ve ever made a few maps in build, you’d know that if you build something slowly, it starts to take its toll on your motivation. You’d also remember that when you first started out, it took you ages to make that one bland, small, yet horribly oversized map with texturing issues a-plenty, only to see the pro’s pumping out high quality work within a month. If you’re fed up with doing the same task over and over, wishing that you could do it all in one go, there’s a good chance you can! And this guide is for you.

10 These are the instructions for how to use DeeperThought’s map caching mod for EDuke32. Map caching is a feature added to EDuke32 by TerminX, and it allows the state of maps to be saved, so that you can return to the saved maps later in the game and they will be exactly as you left them. The map caching mod enables the mapper to use this feature pretty much the way it works in the Half Life series.
