I suffer from the same demise often enough!

2monsters! 2 monster types per map!


This needs to happen.
If I didn't suck at heading projects I would so start this.

If 1024 layouts are getting worn out why not try the sequel to 1024 . . . 2048! I have been mapping 'medium small' levels in the shape of 2048x2048 and they turn out great. It would be a new spin on an old theme and its honestly still not much room to work with. Is there any support here for taking this potential project in the 2048 direction?

Give it about 35 years.
Trust me, the novelty will be well worth the wait.

Here's an idea: combine the 2 monsters idea with the 2x2 idea(2 flats and 2 wall textures).

:)

I think a 1024 project with the added twist of also being 2 monster maps would be a fresh enough idea to get some extra interest. I've taken part in a 2048 project before and can safely say that the space feels pretty unrestricted compared to 1024 (4x the area, afterall) so it'd be pretty easy to work in.

An EE 1024 project would also be a fantastic excuse to try out the Eternity Engine, so I'm certainly not averse to that idea either.

You sir, have stolen my idea. This was the first thing I actually thought when someone said 2 monsters.

(Unless it's basically Gotcha! on a larger scale, with the focus on starting infighting. Then it might be interesting.)



Dammit. This was the second thing I thought.

If Mechadon can successfully make 1024 maps, then it really can't be that hard. I mean, have you seen the size of that guy's maps when you don't put limits on him?

Only problem with this idea is, in effect, it would just be a megawad full of medium-small maps. 2048 is perhaps not enough of a constraint to be really effective. Though I might just be lacking vision here. It might be a great idea.

2048 isn't that large. Even E4M1 wouldn't fit, although admittedly not by much.

I think the real problem of people was that too many monsters teleported from outer places into the cramped 1024 zones. It may work with smaller amount of monsters. (I didn't care, I still loved the maps)

The question is that what would be the best definiton of "too many"?

I'd totally be down for a 1024 3, but I'd also support a 2048 mapset.

Here's a quick map based on Gez's restrictions, except for the oblige part.

Okay, I got some parameters ideas:

-1024x1024 (same as usual)
-24 flats and 24 textures max (so its not ridiculous, but it is consistent, and it plays on the 1024 theme)
-no more than 100 monster max-count (so teleport ambushes don't get overused)

Also, if the 2048 size is too large a leap, what about a 1536 project? Its in-between those two sizes, about twice the total area of 1024 maps and would allow for a lot more level depth, while still being a small map. No, no takers?

Or 1448x1448 for roughly twice the surface area! (And really unusual dimensions, but that's neither here nor there.)

Why does the mapping area have to be square? 2048x2048 would work nicely as circular maps.

I'd rather prefer 2048 than some number in-between, although 1590 isn't a bad idea. That way we could work out the two monsters thing a little more, and maybe add in something goofy like 24 flats/texs.

I thought 2 monsters would work well enough if it was the only restriction.

2048 kinda sounds like regular short map rather than serious restriction.

I like the 1024 and 2 monsters idea. But how about restricting weapons to 2 as well?

OMG, 1337x1337!

On a side note, I never liked the cramped 1024 maps that teleport enemies behind you. It catches you by surprise way too quickly, especially if you're facing monsters in front of you.
