On that note, deathz0r for not only not contrib- uting, but also fucking up the release of 32in24-4.wad (CTF.) If you ever wondered why getwad downloads this wad, and then your client of choice tells you it's the wrong file, wonder no more. Turnabout is fair play!
DD_133 for initially compiling the wad!
Ajapted for finding a ton of bugs!
Tom_D for the map03 music! Bobby Prince, Raven Software, Apocalyptica, and some other people for the rest of it!
All the people whose textures we used: Gothic Resource Wad, Nick Baker's Greatest Hits Collection, Raven Software, id Software, SargeBaldy, Skulltag, Espi, RuinBros, Esselfortium, and anyone else we forgot to list.
Agent Spork for permission to use the Simplicity palette :) and for disappearing after the first night of mapping with a half done wad :(
And finally myself (Shaikoten) for coming up with the idea, organization, and making the interpic.

Description : Another FFA 32in24, except with a unique app-
roach: one person creates a layout, and another
mapper focuses on detailing the layout heavily
and overall refining the map to perfection. All
layouts were completed in 24 hours, within 48
hours almost all were detailed, and in the next
two days, the wad was compiled and released.

BONUS RANTING : Besides producing a very high quality map pack,
the goal of this project for me, personally, was
to experiment with new ways to put together Doom
megawads. I would like to write a manifesto, if
you will, about my current thoughts on project
compilation, and I hope someone finds them
helpful or inspiring.
32in24 basically started as a joke. I was on
IRC, and most of the people in #unidoom were
bored, so I said "Let's make a 32 map megawad in
24 hours!" sarcastically. People started
responding enthusiastically, so deathz0r and I
actually put the project together. Amazingly, we
completed all 32 maps before the deadline and had
a playable, rough around the edges DM megawad.
This got me thinking though. If we can complete
a functional, if ugly megawad in a day, with no
project advertisement beforehand in 24 hours,
imagine what else we could accomplish? With a
group of faithful mappers, we started going down
the list of game modes, with each wad more and
more polished, culminating in 32in24-4, a couple
of weeks ago. Still, there were some naysayers
within the Doom community who called our maps
low quality, simply on the basis that they were
So our maps are ugly. Some people are refusing
to participate in the event or play the wads
because of it. How do you speedmap something
that just screams quality, though?
The answer turned out to be simple. Some people
have trouble making layouts, and take forever,
while others have the same problem with details.
So why not have one team do what they're good at,
and the other do what they're good at? We did,
and I'm pleased with the results. In just a few
days, we took maps that looked like turds and
polished them into gems, and presented an overall
very high quality wad.
But there are other benefits to this system of
mapping that a lot of people have voiced to me,
which were completely unexpected. For example,
I had one mapper tell me that he wasn't feeling
very confident or having a lot of fun with
mapping on his own, but after he participated in
a few 32in24s, he found his output greatly
increased, his maps looking and playing better
than ever, and his desire to map also increased.
Why was this? Well we discussed it, and the
reason seemed to be the condensed time and the
close community in 32in24. You can upload your
map in this project and get constructive criti-
cism almost instantly, and if you can't do some-
thing, another mapper will do it for you and give
you the wad back so you can learn how to. It
also adds a sense of both urgency, and comradarie
to what's usually just sitting in a chair and
clicking in your favorite editor for a few hours.
I overheard another mapper talking to a project
lead of a different DM map project say, "we
should do _____ like 32in24!" At first I was
flattered, and then I really thought about it.
They SHOULD do their project like 32in24. I can
think of certain instances where the setup would
not flow smoothly, but for a DM or CTF megawad?
It's the perfect way to create a map pack with
the least effort and hassle, and to produce the
best final result, as I see it.
So I encourage other mappers to use what we have
learned with these past five projects, to focus
on what we will learn in future projects, and
apply it to the construction of their wads. I
also encourage mappers of any skill level to
participate in 32in24 projects coming in the
future. It's a good experience for mappers of
any skill level or discipline. Thanks for
reading through this, and if you made it this
far, by golly, you've earned yourself a cookie.
