I'm creating a mapset using various textures, sounds, and enemies from the Silent Hill series and was wondering if anybody had any ideas for areas that should be included in the town. Currently, I am working on a hotel, but Silent Hill needs something more. I'll probably due the typical hospital area, also, but that makes sense in a Silent Hill title.

Think about what areas you'd be scared to be left alone in, especially with monsters. Something that'd be interesting to solve puzzles in and explore, all while listening for your radio to hear monsters.

Current features of the wad:

Flashlight
Knife
Handgun
Silent Hill items, music, and textures
Pop-up thought text like in the Silent Hill series
3-D floors for realistic decor (just learned how to make them)

A school would be great and maybe Nowhere from Silent Hill 1 or the Prison from Silent Hill 2, get a mix of Silent Hill 1 and 2 monsters as well.
Basically just take what you can from the first 2 Silent Hills, even though the doom wad Unloved did a good job imo with Silent Hill 4's hub system.
Also it definitely needs to include Otherworld versions of the same maps, just make em look more twisted and change the rooms around.

While SH3 had better themes and atmosphere (and BEST nurse creatures from all parts ever ;-P), SH4: The Room is better in terms of shooter and level exploration if you planning port some areas into Doom maps.

Also Homecoming. Damn, great portrayal of Hell and that doll-like boss.

Otherworlds from SH3 and Homecoming, others do not stand even close.

SH2 is great as SH, but not so good as shooter, that would be insulting and blasphemous. ;-)

I will be mixing some of the best monsters from the series and, yes, there will be otherworld versions of each location.

If you look for inspiration how it was done before you may be interested in Death Wish mod for Blood where in episode 3 it has SH2 inspired level (Whisper Peak) and SH4 (The Room).

I'll definitely check that out. Also, the town map in Unloved 2 was meant to resemble Silent Hill, as far as I'm concerned (it even plays music from Homecoming), so I can use that as inspiration, as well.

I thought you'd like to see a few screenshots of what the wad looks like so far, so here are some pics of the hotel. Keep in mind, these pictures have been brightened so that you can see the detail. The actual map is much darker.

This looks promising so far. In terms of other ideas and places, why not an abandoned and ramshackle amusement park.

That's not a bad idea. Amusement parks have typically been a staple in the Silent Hill series.

That sounds like a very nice idea!

Please don't ruin this project with stock Doom, Blood, or resources from any other Doom-engine / Build engine games. If you do, it would ruin the atmosphere and kill off any immersion the WAD could have.

Good luck!

Looks really good so far!

Out of curiosity, are you going to use actual music from the Silent Hill series, or will you use other (hopefully ambient) music?

Both. Most of which will be Silent Hill music, though.

Don't worry, I plan to use a minimal amount of actual Doom objects/stock (if any at all). I want this wad to feel like Silent Hill.

Great! I can't wait to see gameplay footage, or a demo!

How about that bowling alley from 2 I've always wanted to go back, pop in some puzzles and an otherworld that makes the area larger.

UPDATE!

I've begun adding enemies to the wad. Not only will this wad feature some of Silent Hill's most popular enemies. I'm also creating some of my OWN monsters to add to the game.

Here's a monster you won't see in any normal Silent Hill title:

http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t405/PhantomTMac/STRHE0.jpg

http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t405/PhantomTMac/STRHG0.jpg

http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t405/PhantomTMac/STRHC0.jpg

I haven't gotten around to officially naming any of my new monsters, so I'll just call this one the "Fleshfaced Stripper" for the time being.

Hope you like!

I would make the monster look a bit more like a monster and less like a guy with a strange costume, if you get what I mean. :)

Also, are you going to add dynamic lights? That could add to the suspense of the levels IMO.

I'll do some editing. (Besides, I still have to give the monster 8 directions anyways.)

I'll definitely try some stuff with dynamic lights.

It kinda looks like a woman's rotted corpse, except with that look of being burnt. Any name suggestions?

Bloody Mary? That's all I got.

Might be a good idea to name it after some defining trait. How does it attack? What kind of sounds does it make?

I'm surprised no one's suggested an asylum.

Some kind of cathedral that was converted to/made for dark purposes could also be good. Maybe that's even where the monsters are coming from or where the worst ones can be found.

There we go! :D This looks awesome! Much scarier too.

Can't think of any name though. I always sucked at making up names and titles...

I'm guessing that's a suggestion for the monster name. **

That's actually pretty clever, being that the main character's supposed to have a past he's trying to erase. I like that.
