Cool.
I dig the Koultex texture set used here, I'll make sure to check it out soon. :)
Nice natural landscapes, too.

Monuments of Mars was great, but it was over way too soon for my tastes. I hope this one has some more meat on its bones.

Btw, do any one of you want me to create a demo thread? Seeing that there are already three of these DBPs now.

Nice conceptual design in the opener. I'm looking forward to playing the rest.

Those screenshots remind me of Whispers of Satan's MAP16-20, probably one of my favourite visual styles that I've seen in Doom - will have to play this set.

Really dig the texture scheme and forest aesthetic here. Doom could use some more natural forest themed wads like this.

I like those landscapes. The sky is perfectly fit the colors. Personally, I use curve mode to make huge rocky/stone outside areas.

These guys are indeed quite productive, and more importantly - they consistently deliver, all these recent projects, albeit short, offer some quality doomin', skillful and varied enough to keep things entertaining throughout. 40oz must've found his purpose after all.

 

Speaking of 40oz himself though - I find it kind of troubling that ever since Absolute Dishonor he pretty much abandoned elaborate and well-developed maps in favor of functional "vignettes" that mostly seem to be speedmapped, so him spearheading and contributing to Mutiny seem to be his last "big" splash. When it comes to his recent maps, it's evident that he knows all the tenets of good map design and is well aware of how things should be arranged for the map to be fun and well thought-out, but for some reason neglects expanding on these notions, leaving us small chunks that barely pass thanks to the reasons described above, and it's really sad. Will we ever see anything more grand from him? That is the question.

Definitely one of the lesser maps I've made in a while imo; it just didn't feel salvageable as it was and the spaciousness of the map reduced the threats significantly.

Yeah, pretty much. But I did kinda like the sense of progression. It had a Mt. Pain feel to it, which (call me crazy) I actually like.
