It would be really sad if this were the end of Demon Laden. Whoever is behind these maps is very talented if they're a newbie, regardless of their age.
Just so everyone knows, we will continue working on Dimensions and maybe Projekt Xero and if the results prove to be good, we'll post them =)
Little Temple Group
Ask yourself did you really need 600+ words to say, "This random 11 year-old girl a friend of mine brought back from France made some maps, here they are. For an 11 year-old these maps are really good, you should check them out,"? No you didn't.
Yet every single one of your posts is an obtuse blob of useless bullshit that ranges from pompous to absolutely bizarre. Did we really need a 1,000 word interview with someone who made a shitty soundtrack to a subpar set of levels? No! (Did said interview need to randomly talk about being Irish and Jews? No!) Do we really need to see "Friend X and I were arguing" in every post? No! Do we need to know that Gabrielle is the "angelic blonde every father wants as a daughter but knows he’ll go through hell by the time she’s fifteen"? No we don't! (I also would like to know why you would think that anyone would think Gabrielle sounds like that when you literally DID NOT DESCRIBE HER AT ALL BEFORE SAYING THAT! Does being named Gabrielle just naturally exude "angelic blonde"? Or maybe being a distant relative?) And you know why we don't need to know these things? Because... and I can't stress this enough... NO ONE FUCKING CARES! If you want to have your schizophrenic conversations and pretend you're a serious mapping team that anyone cares about, go do it on a private dev forum and come back when you can release something that you don't have to pretend an 11 year-old made in order to get people to judge it by different standards.
P.S. Purist, tell Dylan to keep pumping out maps, he's a pretty cool dude.
Ironic that you should label anyone elses posting as an 'an obtuse blob of useless bullshit' given how closely your post resembles said obtuse blob of useless bullshit.
See, people like Gez and Vader others were simply commenting on inconsistencies and trying to work out the truth of what is going on here. That's fine. But you have rocked up late, added nothing to the conversation, and decided to get all insulting and inflammatory. In future, just let other people be, and if you must argue, at least be civil about it. Seriously, it honestly looks like you have been just waiting in the shadows for your chance to dump your angry crap on these guys. That may or may not be the case, but that's sure what it looks like.
I am a little over posts like yours driving noob mappers away from these forums because some people can't help but indulge in shitty, self righteous posting. I have seen it too often. So what if the Little Temple Group is or isn't all that it seems to be? Someone out there enjoys mapping for Doom. So, let them map. And whether it is some 11 year old girl from france or some 80 year old naked guy from alabama, or a combination of the two, I don't care in the least. Whoever they are, if we give them a chance instead of drowning them in bullshit posts like these at every opportunity, I think we would have got some great maps. All the maps I have seen from these guys show plenty of potential. And would have improved even faster with helpful, constructive criticism from the many talented mappers on these forums. (Of which you are one, incidentally. You make fine maps, but that is hardly my point here, and that doesn't give you license to spout crap like this.)
So in all probability, there goes another potentially great mapper (or mappers, who knows?)
You're not the only one guilty of this on this thread, but you are the main one. In short, posts like yours equate to fewer good maps for me to play in the future. So for totally selfish reasons, and I apologize for the bluntness, just stfu.
