Mainly because it is not as advanced as other source ports editing feature wise, (wasn't it boom incompatible? Or was that a different engine.) Though the graphical features are pretty neat

it's basically the vanilla engine but with extra graphical fluff. it does have a editing format called DED, but i guess not many people would like to utilize it because of it not supporting anything higher than vanilla-limited mapping, and that other source ports has a much more extensive scripting system.

i actually really like Dengine though. the graphical fluff is really nice, and if it just had Boom compability, i wouldn't mind using it more.

Pretty sure everyone uses Zandronum to play online. I think there's some mods that let you use models and HD textures similar to Doomsday's if that's what you're looking for. I remember using Risen3D models with JDoom HD textures back when Skulltag was a thing.

Actually, Doomsday is what some would refer to as "extreme" limit removing. Which is to say it supports maps larger than the DOOM/Hexen map format can even represent.

I think the reason not many people play Doomsday online is simply because there are other ports available which focus on this aspect exclusively. Consequently they offer many more player oriented features like new game modes.

To date multiplayer simply has not been a primary focus for us, despite the fact the port uses a client/server architecture, with player features like movement prediction and admin features like remote server administration. This situation will change in future as we are moving to a "unified networking" model where even a single player game has a local server.

Its great hear such positive feedback. While multiplayer has historically not been a focus for us things are definitely changing in that respect. As you found, though, the main issue with co-op at present is that the movement of monsters is not predicted and as such can be seen to warp on client-side. Deathmatch on the other hand is very playable :)

Our dedicated servers are virtualized and hosted with Amazon's EC2 "cloud computing" service. In effect there are a dozen or so Unix-based Doomsday servers running 24/7 which are automatically updated by our autobuilder whenever a new Doomsday build is ran (typically twice a week during the "progressive" phase of development). We administrate these remotely using the exact same tools we provide to users (e.g., the Shell and Doomsday's own internal rcon mechanisms).
