...or at least not by me. the only explanation i can give that i think anyone wants to hear is that i'm a star procrastinator and lazy bastard. truly though, in the last month or so (the time period i allotted for the bulk of the work on my map when i was doing the early 'rough drafts' in the project's infancy), i developed personal obligations that are using more of my free time than i had originally predicted they would. and with respect, i value those obligations more than my obligation to this project.

and so. there is no way i can make any of my scraps into a playable, finished product given the deadline. i realize i am disappointing everyone and that people will try to talk me into buckling down and making my contribution, but if i hadn't been trying i would've posted this a lot sooner.

so there. sorry. if there are miracle-mappers with the spare time to fill the slot and finish a map in a week then consider this a late grab thread, but i don't expect that of anyone and that's not why i wrote this. i made this thread because looking through the forum i get the vibe that there will be a small group of 'absentees' and i wanted to at least give the project leader some respect and tell him straight that i have to bail out.

and there it is. i know most of the rest of you are awesome, dedicated mappers and that the finished project will be great regardless of the number of maps.

Boy O Boy I know how you feel. It does suck that you won't be able to finish your map.

There are a couple of miracle mappers around here. So not to worry. You have done much for the community over the years so no reason to sweat it.

I know that Psyren here on the boards has 4 maps that can be brought to the project. They are finished and playtested. He did not have a slot in the project and would love to have one. I am 98% certain he would take it, we spoke about the possibility recently.

So, I elect the spot for Psyren if Liam won't be able to finish it. I will PM him and let him come back to the thread here.

and there's always still Erik with his psyco mapping speed. He could spit out another level for the MegaWad in a couple of days!

Use3d, I would also love to see a full mega wad.

I am glad there are maps that can be brought to the project, that are already done, and by someone who does not have a slot. He should have a little exposure. He is a good mapper.

I am sure Psyren will likely be by here today to accept.

I'll take the slot. I've already started on something good. It's not much of a contribution either if Psyren just adds an already finished map either.

Psyren's maps are finished. They have not been released. What do you mean not much of a contribution?

Lutrov you already have map 6. He has none, and wants one. No need to not allow anyone new, who is good, into the project.

Ok Ok, let the damn guy put his already finished map onto the project. I still think Cadman would like the map to have been built for the project though.

We had that last time anyway, 4 of the maps came from Searcher's Blind Alley series.

Ok, well I'm late responding, and you're right. I can't imagine how just stuffing a finished map into an almost finished series can really work. Not knowing where it has come from or what it's going into - just map13 - is not a good way to do it.

I'd like a place in the project, but I have no interest in detracting from the theme any. Sure, I could rework a map of mine to fit in the time left, but so could anyone else.

Thanx Lutrov71, Who has map12 and map14 and what are the themes? Tell me a little bit and I'll make it look like all 3 maps are by the same author. Broken up room exiting a tech base can easily be incorporated into a hell-type level, or vice versa. It will look like one mapper did all three maps if you guys give me some input.

Don't you want it to look cool and professional, and not like just a bunch of people threw together enough maps to make a megawad?

What theme?

Stuffing a map into a wad?

Psyren's maps are good and would fit perfectly.

Psyren, pick your best map. Save it as map 13 and send it to Cadman for gosh sake.

Post your map name in this thread:
http://www.doomworld.com/vb/showthr...&threadid=20387

Make sure The Ultimate Doomer gets the name for the graphics part of the project.
