Hmm, I'll see what I can do. I'll update this post with the results.

 

Here you go.

Looks sharp, if I do say so myself, which I do.

Progress bump.

 

More screenies, this time of the chapel.

The SFALL texture there is a placeholder at the moment. I'll explain why at the end.

I'd like a set of SFALL textures that are just flipped. Could I make those and throw those in for this map? That'll be all for new textures.

Also, Builder screenshot.

As you can see, I've settled on calling it Ultraviolet.

The plan is to get something like four mini-maps and combine them into one singular void adventure.

I'll post another update tomorrow.

 

Oh, about the sky, it'll be in the wad when I upload it, as will the upside-down SFALL textures if those are okayed.

If you like, I'd also like to try my hand at providing a purple SKY3, a recolor like this one, but I'll make it nice and pretty and purple.

I don't know what came over me for the upside-down castle, but I thought it was awesome. Upside-down is cool because it's unusual.

Glad you like the sky. All I did was use one of those sites to make that sky seamless along all its edges. I think it looks a lot cooler now.

There is a purple sky in there which for some reason I did not set as the default, so you'll have to sky-transfer it in. Remind me to not set it up like that in the future.

 

@leodoom85 Yes hi I've hit some setbacks (hardware troubles being a big one) but it won't be much longer, I'm serious!! Sorry for taking so long, I know I'm not giving people much of an opportunity to mess around with them as there's only a week and a half left*. I'm going to set a proper deadline for myself: Get the pack up by the end of tomorrow. Hold me to it, please.

 

*a week and a half to make my map as well once I've got the texture stuff done, oof

I love looking at screenshots of fan made levels in general, but I wanted to say with this purple theme, less is more. It is of course just my opinion, but I like the screenshots more when purple is used as an accent color rather than a grey replacement.

I might tap out.  Maybe i'll pivot to another map and throw out a quick-n-dirty speedmap next weekend.

Like I said, though, I at least "touched" my map again.  It might have to go into the Velvet Vault for now though.

Inspired by The Fading Place from DTS-T.

Coming along. This one will be a rather short and sweet map.

I've decided against the upside-down SFALL textures, I'm going to stick with the standard ones, since in the inverted chapel it looks like the water is flowing backwards, so it has a nice charm to it.

The next section I hope will be pretty crazy.

 

Of course, mandatory Builder shot.

Why dont you post it here? That looks too nice to be shelved, so maybe someone here can finish it up, even how slim the chance may be.

I'm afraid that's the natural development cycle of a noisy map: Step 1, make a broadstroke layout.  Step 2, get burnt out on it.  Step 3, go eat food.  Step 4 move to something else.

Doing the water/bloood cavern was pretty fun. It's so weird!

Finished the third wing. This one will be really short, but that's good in this case.

I wanted to make this one really strange, hope I succeeded.

 

Builder shot.

The cavern kind of looks like a kidney.

Alright, sorry for the wait!! Here's a few extra textures to play with (includes a new red sky, as SKY1. The original purple sky is SKY2): Download 

 

I grabbed some stuff from Valiant + AA, as well as some of the textures Scotty wanted included, minus some things I was struggling to get paletted nicely. Hope this gives people some more options. Good luck with finishing your maps, everyone! I'm looking forward to playing them when they're all compiled together. Don't forget, you're free to add in extra stuff to your own maps if you need more or think I forgot something.

 

Now... to actually start my map, haha.

The entire area behind the red door.

 

The structure is complete and now I have to add the things.

This isn't my strongest map by a long shot, but I wanted to try something I thought might be new and fun.

 

GZDB shot.

I found a bug that crash the texture pack if you use the black panel textures with prboom-plus 2.5.1.4, it gives you a "signal header 11" error and crash the port.

This may still need some polish somewhere but here's a map:

Difficulty settings are implemented, I wasn't thinking about multiplayer so there are a couple places where it's possible to get stuck.

I haven't playtested a lot so make sure to take a look and see if something is broken.

I forgot to convert them from PNG. Updated the file.

Um I think there are still some issues with the textures, D_BLKW24 for example. I am making a little break room area in my map and I wanted to put a TV so I used this texture for the front and have it scrolling so it looks like there is static on the screen, in the editor it looks like this....

But in the game in Prboom it looks like this.....
