Aside From Tale of Doom, I'm workin on one map. Skyjump. It'll be done soon. You start off by jumping 1800 feet down into a Base that has been infested with monsters in which you were called in to exterminate it and the Base. I'll have screens soon.

Hmmm, pretty low for a 'chute jump. I've never jumped below 2000 feet. Of course, I do/did it for fun, not to infiltrate a monster infested base. :-)

Ah Dont feel too bad man. Skydiving isnt always fun.

I mean there's parachute failure, being pushed off the plane w/o warning, landing in a tree, all kinds of dangers but who the hell cares, in this map you dont need any of the danger warnings.

Yeah, I used to go skydiving quite a lot, but money, weather and the nearest suitable airfield being over 100 miles away all conspired to make it impractical.

Parachute failure is only not fun for a few seconds, then you don't know anything about it after that. At least you can die safe in the knowledge your skydiving buddies will have a "crater party" to celebrate your final jump. :-)

Being pushed off the plane - heh, good fun.

Landing in a tree - wasn't a risk at my airfield, but sheep were. And those things just don't have the ability to see something approaching from directly above. Sheep and the element of surprise - an interesting combination in some "specialist" social circles.

Mind you, I did make a real arse of my first free fall, and ended up twisting the parachute into a streamer which opened just before I was going to pull the reserve. My instructor gave me a right bollocking for leaving pulling the reserve so late. My defence was that he had told me to make sure I did a really slow 4 second count before checking my canopy, because people tend to rush it on their first free fall. Turns out my 4 seconds were nearer 6 or 7 though. At least my canopy was open by the time I checked. O_O

Once you get a bit of experience, and move on to higher altitudes and "square" parachutes, all the traditional worries are behind you and you can enjoy the sport. Mind you, I reckon even the most experienced people still get that adrenaline buzz just before jumping.

@Cyb, yeah, fair point. And when he lands, his legs are still in tip top condition enabling him to still be able to run at speeds in excess of the limit on the highways in many countries. The worst he might do is make an "oof" sound when he lands. :-)

Actually 1800 is too low. I'm doing ceiling height 4096 (Max Height) and floor height 0, or i could do negative floor height all the way down to like the base which could take at least 20 seconds to land and be surprised by monsters. Its cool though when I experiment.

Of course it would a long fall, and the best part is that Doom doesn't have fall damage like Hexen. This map will BE difficult, styled, unique, and fun to play.

You know, there's this thing called a spacebar. You hit it after adding a period or a comma.

Mind you, as you can't look down past your feet at the ground, there ain't much for you to look at as you fall.

So, unless you're going to use cameras, you want to keep the fall fairly brief just to avoid booring the player.

Steve do you happen to have aim?

I was looking throught your weapon emporium and had an idea in my head. if not aim then email me at clansr03@yahoo

Dont want to say in front of everyone otherwise they may give bad ideas.

But i do love the lightsaber with berserk pack stacked onto the damage heh.
