Here is a new contest - the thread title is fairly self-explanatory. The rules are as follows:
Sector count - no limit; make it as detailed as you like, but it all must be within one room, the constraints of which will be later mentioned
Thing limit - again, none...but use should be in good taste
Linedefs/vertices - none
* The goal is to make the most intricate, detailed room according to theme. The radius can be anything you like within 896.
Goal:The working idea is that this is only one room and therefore, no two sectors joined by a door in this (except for a door in the wall for a compartment or whathaveyou) wad are allowed. Stairs may be used. You can have multi-levels. Pack whatever you like into that one room, but as I said, doors are explicitly disallowed, even if they are within that one room. That'd defeat the purpose. :) Lifts are okay too, of course. Lastly, let me add that all the wads must be original, no use of previous wads or copy+pasting. All of this can be done in vanilla Doom, but ZDoom is okay too. I should also mention that you may use must use only the existing textures using the Doom 1 IWAD (this condition is only for this one...it may vary between contests).
This week's theme: We'll start with the standard and make it easy for anyone to get into it... E1.

[any and all entries may be subject to submission to /newstuff chronicles with permission of author]
*EXTRA INFO*:If you wish, feel free to make this one room map into an actual "functioning map", including an exit, enemies, etc. Should you choose that, I suggest making it for speedrunning in mind. If enough entries are submitted, a speedrunning megawad could be compiled with the authors' permission.
