About This File

This was a livestreamed communal mapping session that took place on August 27th, 2016, with participants mapping under the strict guidance of Jimmy and a few session tutors via Discord and TwitchTV. The mappers were talked through the basics of mapping, such as creating connected areas, interesting layouts, and using thing placement sensibly. In hopefully the first of many similar live tutorial sessions!

The participants mapped in a variety of formats, mostly Boom and ZDoom (UDMF).

a bit of a joy to play at times, not the most enjoyable experience I've ever had though.

M'kay. This WAD is bananas. Not bad, but weapon stealing between maps gets tiresome. This is 19 separate WADs in one WAD. Please consider carrying over weapons between maps next time.

      Amazing episode, some custom decorations and good care to lights and shadows. I like how he uses the playing space (wide corridors) and how it affects the combat. Despite her beautiful voice, you gotta kill her. Burning trees.

      Nice, tight level design. E1M8 was an amazing puzzle map.
      It's surprisingly difficult for a Doom 1 WAD, but for wrong reasons: constant ambushes, monsters teleporting right behind you. Also, there is a serious lack of medikits. Fights with 5 % health and hitscanners all around are common.
      Still, it was quite fun.

      Seriously underappreciated WAD. If you've played the Japanese Community Project, Manbou (burabojunior) was the most prolific contributor, and without his nine maps, the JPCP wouldn't have the same reputation for fun and artistic flair. He announced Water Spirit in the text file for JPCP, and released it a year later. These are three somewhat challenging maps with high enemy counts and visuals even more stunning than his JPCP maps. Manbou is probably my favorite visual artist in Doom. My only complaint is that the PWAD as a whole is really short, consisting of only three maps that are about ten minutes of gameplay each. It leaves me wanting a lot more.

      Big non-linear tech-base with no music replacement (D_running ad-eternum).
      I know there's a more polished version in an unfinished megawad, with a lot better combat and navigation. Cool idea, not sure about the execution. I recommend playing the reworked one.

      Would be a 4/5 if it weren't for the last stretch of levels (maps 20 onward) which are absolutely fantastic.   The levels are quite short, but combat is really challenging, especially if you try to get all kills (which I didn't). I think it leans a bit too much on ambushes in some maps, but thankfully there are concept maps like Gladiator, 200 Mega Hurts, and Demonology to prevent things from getting boring. That each level flows into the next, through the elevator (and sometimes other things), is a really nice touch. The visuals are probably the best possible with vanilla textures, and the music, while difficult to listen to, is perfect for this WAD's "chaotic evil" style. It's a WAD worthy of its author, the master of chaos Cyriak Harris.
