About This File

For 2016, I really want to better my mapping abilities and put out some good stuff. Two friends, Mystical and Gardevoir, said that a good experiment might be to try speedmapping. Just get the shit out of the mind and into the editor, stream-of-consciousness work. 4-6 hours, Zandro compatibility, vanilla monsters/weapons. DUMP 1 began and it was a success, bringing a whole bunch of me and my friends into ZDoom mapping and just churning things out. Then another friend, AD_79, suggested I open it up to the public. I did, and the response was overwhelming. An unfathomable amount of people signed up for this, and we ended up with a grand total of 68 maps. A hub map, 64 normal maps, a secret map, a final map, and a Marathon map (of all things).

As before, we now present to you a small hub leading to a handful of different maps. Beat X amount of maps to unlock the exit, with X being a variable depending on the difficulty level (ITYTD only requires a handful of maps, Nightmare requires EVERY SINGLE MAP), and defeat the final boss to win. Gameplay mods should be supported, though there's been trouble in Zandronum so it may be better to use them in ZDoom/GZDoom. Pistol start is enforced, and monsters are vanilla (except for the Final Boss).

As before, the primary purpose of this project is to have a way for all of the newbies to try and push over that initial hump together, to MAKE something. It's the usual pile of quality you'll expect from a gigawad of MyFirstZDoomMap.wad, but it was fun to band together to make shit. Again, as before, please feel free to point out any issues, troubles, errors, imbalances, and etc about the maps. Don't feel the need to sugarcoat, give it to us straight--none of us are pro-tier mappers. We can't improve if we don't know what's wrong.

The set of maps in new udmf format (I play them on ZDOOM 2.8.1) with nice architecture and mostly of medium difficulty. On hub the error was done: on the right-hand side near final exit the tags of sectors for closing maps are shifted.

Played 11 random maps out of the ones available. Wasn't impressed with the quality level. These maps were boring. End boss was funny, though. Cut down on the texture size next time to avoid killing performance for OpenGL users.

Wow, this is pretty great. My only beef is the insanely long load time for the hub. I'm playing from an SSD but it still takes 5-10 seconds for it to load. I'm about 12 maps in and I've only skipped one (stuck in a jail cell).

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
