Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

Cage, can I see your level when it's finished? I have map10 and I may want to incorporate the ending of yours into the beginning of mine. I like megawads that have that "flow" because they do that.

Kid Airbag, excellent, *******, I totally forgot about the flow =) That means XXoXX, I'll want to see your level when it's done to make sure I connect off of your exit in the beginning of my map.

Aleaver: I was just stating that, if you DO put a deadline up at some point and time, I would make certain that no matter how much crap I have to deal with, the map would make it on time ;-)

Kid Airbag: yes, no problem :) You could play test it too, since I think the difficulty needs tweaking. At the moment my exit is a small 'get in, use the switch' room.

I know..I was just letting everyone know that as of now..there is no deadline. I think I'm gonna wait until all map slots are filled. Then I will set a deadline.

Sure Black Void. Anyway I haven't really made my exit yet so I might just use your start area instead.

Looks very nice Soap only the sky doesn't really go well with the theme :)
Are we going to use new skies?

I sure hope so! I wasn't thinking about skies when I decided to do map 14. In fact, there wasn't really anything that influenced my map slot decision. I just picked a number that wasn't 15 or 31 because I'd probably forget to put a secret exit in. :P

But yes, the second chunk of maps definitely could use a more generic sky.

Wait, so all maps need deathmatch starts? My level is going to be so massive I don';t know how I could incorporate them into the single player/coop part of my level. Is it okay to make a separate "deathmatch arena" somewhere in the level?

The problem with playtesting individual maps in a megawad like this is that you don't know what you can expect to enter the level with. Since you're map 9, for example, I don't know what sort of health/ammo/weapons/armor I can figure on having after map 8. Unless every map is designed to be played from a pistol start, I think it'd be best for the overall gameplay of the project to test it once all or most of the maps have already been completed.

Like the other two, I expect this cc will be to make maps completable from pistol start. Despite having huge maps, throwing in Deathmatch starts won't hurt, and I think NOT having them will break some ports when using multiplayer game of any type..not sure on that one though. Better safe than sorry.

I usualy don't outsource betatesting on any of my maps. But I'm considering getting more opinions on gameplay. UV is quite spicy, for a first level!

It's a good habit to always make maps with a pistol start in mind.

As for deathmatch, I just put a handful of deathmatch starts at scattered points on the map, turned off the strong monsters that were near them (no one wants to spawn right behind an Archvile), and put some more weapons around. I've never played deathmatch before, so I just went with what I figured would work. I doubt any more is expected. :P

Map 6 - Seplophobia
Completion - 15%

...Ah, the day to myself tomorrow; I hope to tackle up to 50% of this map by then - it's gonna be sweet... (I wouldn't DARE throw in a filler map!)

620 vertices
778 linedefs
1131 sidedefs
173 sectors
65 things

Hmm I'd have to say my map is around 15% - 20% done so far, here are some pictures:

Don't worry the whole map won't take place in the sewers :P I haven't thought of a name yet though.

EDIT: Also I'm guessing these maps will be coop compatible?

YAY, SCREENIES

My level is < 5% finished from a design standpoint. It's 1294 sectors so far, so yes, my plan is for this level to be absolutely massive, perhaps even the biggest single level ever created.

It takes place in some kind of UAC Headquarters. It's going to utilise the invisible teleport linetype heavily to create the illusion of a multi-level building going down into the earth. It'll include everything: hangar (with a ship that you can go inside of), living quarters, fitness center, warehouse, labs, maintenance/power control, waterworks, all sorts of fun shit.

So here's a few screenshots just to show that I have been doing some work. Just be aware that they're very sparsely decorated right now, since I usually do finer detail/scenery/enemies/weapons later in the level editing process, so these will all be spiced up a bit.

The "trash bay" where you start.

Grand entrance hall.

View of the entrance hall from the other side.

Parking garage.


And a view of the level so far in WadAuthor, just for shits and giggles.

Hardly. I've been working on this since I first signed up, and that was over a month ago.

I would consider 1294 sectors to be quite a lot for one month. ;P

Yeah, I figure that in all honesty this will be my last contribution editing-wise to the Doom Community. Doomed Once More kind of has fallen by the wayside, unfortunately, although I am taking some of my favorite ideas from those half-finished levels and trying to incorporate them in this one.

I would maybe like to also make a gothic-themed level for CC3 (not quite as grandiose as this one) if/when I finish map 10 and if there's still slots available.

A lot of it is copy and paste maneuvering, particularly with the "3d skylights." I also give no thought whatsoever to sector efficiency so if every identical sector was the same, the total number would probably be cut in half at the very least.

Although now that I'm finally done with the grand hall things could pick up a little bit because I find designing huge rooms to be really tedious and so I tend to progress more slowly than when I'm working on a bunch of smaller rooms.

Just hit the 3000 sector mark, and if I said I was 10% done with the level that'd be a liberal estimate. I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up breaking WadAuthor.

i may already have an answer to that problem, thanks though.
