Transport - the second map i made

Recommended Posts

This is the second map that I have made and the first map that I used custom stuff in SLADE 3. So I made this a few days after I released UAC Earth Base aka my first map on Doomworld and finished after 2-3 weeks (took quite long because I had a lot of stuff to do in school and I was very lazy.) It contains custom textures and things in it. Here is the text file:

Before I actually release it at Doomworld, would you mind if you give some feeback on it and some tips for future maps that I might make? That would be great and I would highly appreciate it.

The screenshots looks pretty good. The lighting levels are varied and you've done a decent job with shadows, as well as with light to draw your eye to where you want the player to go.

 

You claim to require ZDoom and its descendants, but you never say why. Are jumping, crouching, and freelook mandatory? Are there other reasons? Or do you just like ZDoom, and the map will probably function fine with Boom or even vanilla?

Just a tip: many of us have a lot of things to, whether it's work, family, school, whatever, so we understand being busy. Another tip: you'd be better off polishing something rather than just releasing it and saying "it could be better, but I was lazy." I general, it's probably best to not try to sell yourself by calling yourself "lazy."

If this really is the second map you've ever made, then you did a really great job. It was very detailed, had nice texture use, and lighting variety. The combat wasn't particularly interesting, but it wasn't annoying either. It was just very straightforward and standard. I never felt threatened, and my health never dropped below 80%.

The room I liked the least, was the one with a cyberdemon. I had no idea what to do in it, and just circled around, trying to find a switch or something. After about 2 minutes I figured out that there's an elevator leading to the top of the crates, where you get the plasma rifle, which is your only means of killing the cyberdemon. It wasn't clear that the texture you used for the elevator served the purpose it did.

My other complaint is with the overall layout of the level. There's quite a bit of backtracking, which feels like a waste of time.

Other than that, some rooms felt too cramped, and the stealth monsters were really unnecessary.

 

But overall I'd say that it's a pretty good map, especially if this is your second attempt. So keep at it!

My playthrough of the map. I agree with Lorenz0, the lift on the Cyb room should look more like a lift:
