For the record, I normally play through E1 in <40 minutes with 100% kills and 100% secrets so by your reasoning KDiZD should have been completable in twice that.

My best time for E2 is around 50 minutes so again, if ZSoZD took me less than 2 hours (which would be the upper limit of 'acceptable' according to you I'd be severerly disappointed.


All in all, it matters absolutely zero how long it takes to play it, so long as the journey itself is made worthwhile.

I'd rather be able to beat an awesome mod in an hour as opposed to drudge through crap for five.

any reason not to do a hub design? Figured you were adding new features, why not a hub? Probably too hard to coordinate with all the mappers?

A lot of these screenshots look a lot like just good maps. With the exception of that shot with the vines and the one with the modified CEMENT textures, I'm not really seeing much that reminds me of The Shores of Hell at all.

^ Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. While these shots do look good, there really isn't anything that reminds me of E2, outside of one screenshot.

You must have misread something, we're not going for a hub!

@40oz:
I might make a difference seeing the areas in-game, as I personally think the maps have been designed to stay true (in terms of texturing and shape to the original) areas in most cases.
I say in most cases, because there are obviously things that had to be modified in order to add new areas for example.

Anyway, any suggestions? Could you point out something that is typical for E2 and missing in those screenshots?

Good; The Shores of Hell is ugly. :P

Seriously though, I'm don't really know what you're expecting to see, but ingame I find it pretty easy to tell exactly where I am in, for instance, Vader's z2m6. If you're looking for obvious and direct replicas with the original texturing intact or something, you're not going to find them. These maps aren't clones of the original e2 with a bunch of added computer garbage on the walls, we're just taking the layouts and themes as guidelines and bases to reinterpret.

I don't understand all the E2 hate. The only bad levels were E2M1 and E2M9 IMO.

episode 2 is my favorite despite its clashing textures because of its atmosphere. it is also my favorite to speed run.

I thought E2M1 was rather good. In fact, a lot E2 was rather fun. I had no idea there was hate centered for it.

Sorry if I came across as bitching, I guess I was hoping for something that had a similar atmosphere but with an updated modern styled architecture.

Anyway, I'll take E2 over the rest of UD because of it's gameplay / atmosphere. Hell I'd take it over newer projects like RTC-3057 as well.

To my knowledge, every texture used in TSoZD is by NiGHTMARE, Vader, Tormentor, or myself, and they're all either original or based on Doom resources. I think a few wood textures might be edits (made with permission) of textures originally Jonathan Rimmer? Definitely nothing of yours in there, though. (Which ones are you looking at?)

A few of these have some incomplete stuff in the background somewhere if you look for it. So.. don't look for it :P

Nice shots.


BUT!

Too complicated, as KDiZD was.

Damnit, I love details, but these gusys have never tried to make a correct level size. Even Z1M1 was big as ASS! Some people are very megalomaniac!

Why is it good?

Nearly everyone working on The Shores of ZDoom had no involvement with KDiZD's creation.

Smooth, sane level flow has been a major focus in development for these maps; I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

There weren't any computers in 1994, which could handle that big maps like this. Even GothicDM maps in 1999 crashes several computers, as I've heard on Doom Wiki.

Well, I'll see the final result, and then, I'll modify my opinion. Hopefully. =)
