This is my first stab at creating a deathmatch wad (or any wad) for Doom II.
By all means, criticize away. After playing countless hours and countless
other wads, I felt I had a pretty good idea of what makes a successful
deathmatch wad. Most people I've played appreciate a small, well designed
level with a high encounter rate. However, they *don't* appreciate numerous
respawn frag possibilities common with Maps 1 and 7 of the original
doom2.wad. Using these criterion as guidelines, I proceeded with the design
As for those who haven't tried creating a wad of his or her own, I'd
recommend trying. After hours of thought, learning the editor, and texture
alignment (did the best I could), I can now appreciate what wad authors go
through to bring us more variety and excitement to our deathmatch games.
Please keep it up.
In the future, I may try to build yet another deathmatch wad. While designing
this current one, many new ideas came flooding into my brain all at once. I
hope I can remember some of them. Oh well..enough of my babbling. DOOM ON!!
