Well, this is my first thread on DW EVAR, so here it goes.

What would be the WORST idea for a TC ever? Rather than making this a poll, I'd like to get some reactions, as there have been many in #skulltag (on freenode, go there). Some ideas that have been tossed about : Matrix Reloaded and War3. Matrix for obvious reasons of course.

What do I mean by obvious? I mean, implementing so much new stuff (i.e. ALL NEW SPRITES, new textures, weapons, scripting, et al) that it wouldn't be nearly feasable today.


What say ye? Discuss.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I mean for doom.

i think a mod in which you played the role of barbie trying to save ken through nonviolent means would be a pretty lame idea for a tc.

err, unless you mean what it is that necessarily makes a tc a bad idea? well, the idea of making a TC is a bad idea if you're not willing to do lots and lots of art for it yourself.

Yeah I think it is important first of all to appreciate that even if you're in charge, everyone's submissions need fair hearing.

Ultimately though, people must accept teh final say of the one in charge, otherwise the very nature of internet cooperation is unworkable, and pointless.

Someone already has made a Lord of the Rings map. Remember Helm's Deep?

Iron Chef the TC

Your goal is to move ingredients between two counters for an hour. Timing is critical because you lose points if your timing is off and you're competing against the computer!

That would so rule.

I dont think there are any conepts which are inherrently bad. Even the Barbie saving Ken example could be good if done properly. It's all in the execution.

I believe that, strictly in the doom context and the limitations that brings, that things like a Matrix mod really wouldn't be worth the effort for the results.

I think I like the Iron Chef TC approach, what about Real World TC?

It's worth it if it's fun.

Bwa ha ha ha!!! It's the Evil Villian TC where you take the hero and put him/her in an elaborate trap that no one could ever get out of, tell them your entire plan and then leave knowing full well that he could never figure out to push the button to stop the laser from carving him a few new ones and escape to stop your evil plans (again). :)

They're actually making a game based on this. That is so cool. :D

uhhhhhhhhh

I know...B squad DooM, all the demons that werent badass enough to make it into the real game!

Former shoeman-Can give your combat boots a killer shining if youre not careful
Popgun guy-Those corks can be deadly!,well, give you a nasty bruise at close range (like 1cm)
Limp-Ugly brown demon that hobbles about on a zimmer frame going "when i where't lad all this where brimstone"
Cow demon-Will tear your head off, if you somehow turn into a blade of grass anyway, vunerable to being tipped over
SPEKTER-z-list 60's actor who can put on a fake russian accent for his big part as 'guard #7' in a bond movie
Cack-o-demon-You dont wanna know
Lost mole-Totally harmless, its a small furry creature that walks round with a map scratching its head
The spider retard-Couldnt hit the side of a barn if it was inside the barn
The cipher demon-Talks in code, and,er, thats it

I think that no TC is bad; some people might not enjoy it, but others will. The only bad TC is one that no one, not even the author themself, likes.

Heh, where IS LizardCommando these days anyway?

Okay here's an idea -- how about a ZDooM PC where you star as a Mancubus on a ship trying to kill the devil and then...

Alright, serious now, how about another ZdooM wad where you get to play the classic game of SNAKE! HAHHAHAH that's been done too.

Okay, how about pac-man, that'd be cool right? Yeah...

Bergerac DooM, you get to run about on jersey foiling the plans of over the top villans who have nicked a mars bar from a corner shop or something, and they usually get away in the end anyway XD

I think WombDoom, where you play an unborn fetus fighting off placental infections and rusty coathangers, would be fairly awful.
