Perfect use of homages! You amazed me!
Thanks man! :)
For more of the screens:
This is the starting view of E1M2. The starting room, which bases on my very-first attempt for mapping, is quite minimalist, doesn't really bring any E1 memories back and is an interlock as will be revealed when the map is finally done and playable.
From another perspective. The switch (actually opening the door right in front of starting view) is able to deceive first-players because of the stupid light's sign above. Yeah, the light, the exit door straight in the first room (can only be opened remotedly just like the one in E1M1) and having tan textures all over were the characteristics of my very-first room in mapping. There the spot STARTAN3 is an ambush, basing on my very-first secret room-making attempt, which contained STARBR2 (here, in E1, not available texture, so I won't use it, better try some COMPUTE3 instead). The only innovation seen now is the PLANET1 panel with the lights and shotgun. Of course, will decorate better!
The Doomep47 concept is partially given up since a longer period of time, given that 1) integrating 3 more episodes in would be almost impossible in vanilla limits 2) over 27 levels contain teleporters, rendering a proper E1 completely impossible to make. So, there will be some changes in plans:
- E1M2 and E1M6 are being / will be made basing on my first and second mapping attempts (I clearly remember both, no problem).
- E1M3 and E1M5 will be, E2M4, E2M9 and partially E2M3 are already (being) made from scratch, with minor (major for E1M1 and E2M3) homages to their originals and others, but, of course, playing completely differently. E2M4 and E1M5 base on imagination, while E2M9 does on a dream I had in July 2009.
- The rest of the maps will have been made after sketches, with only minor changes allowed (one proved the map E4M7 succeeded better than its previous plan). The ready (but still in need of some polishing up) maps are namely E1M7, E2M2, E2M5, E2M6, E4M7 and E4M9, while E3M5 is getting on slowly and E2M7 needs a complete update.
That was a parable!
