About This File

Mapping is hard.

A lot of us have been wanting to map for a while, but can't really get over that initial hump. There's only one way to improve, but oh man is it painful to just grind, grind, grind until you get a clue and figure out what to do. We get awesome ideas! Oh, man, this would be so cool! Then we jump in and...stare at the grid for hours.

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. Then a friend decided to jump on board. Then another friend. Then another friend. Then we had a whole bunch of people making maps, vet and newbie alike, all pushing against a 4-6 hour deadline to make some ZDoom maps to jump up and down on. Then we compiled them into a single pack and gave 'em one more run through for polish and decoration.

Obviously, we finished. We now present to you, a small hub leading to a handful of different maps. Beat each map to unlock the exit, and exit to win. Gameplay mods should be supported. Pistol start is enforced, though, so something like DoomRLA or Hideous Destructor will likely piss you off. Monsters are vanilla, except for the secret/final map, which comes to a grand total of two new enemies.

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 a way for the vets to lead on some new mappers, welcome them into something they wouldn't normally try. Please enjoy, a lot of people really fought tooth and nail in order to hurdle over the hump and make it in. Also 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.

To the left are the good maps, to the right are the bad maps and to the front are the good maps again.

Enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. The only level I didn't like was the one where you have to swim.

      It's large 1995 map. Starting area is looking nice, but later author lost creativity and made mazy corridors. Very challenging because of overuse of chaingunners. It's extremely annoying. Lots of traps, Some clever, some not fair.

      Too linear in my tastes looking back now, will do better with my next projects!

      For 95' map is really ok. A bit "blocky" design, but not bad. Map is rather big, it takes me 40min but i get lost in one place. Some good traps, IMO kinda challanging at the begining, before you get ssg. Overall good classic wad.

      Fun map that captures a nice TNT-ish feel with plenty of weird yet also nice looking rooms, groups of hitscanners and demons to blast through, and a sense of adventure to it. Taking the MAP14 slot, you would see the episode 2 skybox of TNT: Evilution and listen to the track "Cold Subtleness", both creating a nice atmosphere to the map. Worth checking out!

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.
