NaNoWADMo 2018

Recommended Posts

Well I got about 20 maps done in the end. life caught up with me and I havent even looked at a computer screen for a week. Id like to have a UD wad out at the end of next month but I doubt that will happen.

 

Congrats to everyone who participated and got something out, no easy task by any stretch.

@Crunchynut44I hope you find a way to (when and in what form you desire, of course) release what you have. Would still be sad to just see 20 maps go to waste. ;(

I certainly will at some point soon I really like what I have made so far and its fit to be played, but ideally I would like to release a whole wads worth. Ill do that at the completion of episode 3.

@Crunchynut44 That is all and well, I just was left a bit dazzled when all you mentioned was when you would likely NOT be releasing something as opposed to (also) affirming if you likely would at some point, regardless of if that be one or a few or several months down the road. Looking forward to it in 2019 hopefully! :D

My mapping really fell apart near the end but I think I put in a good enough effort.

I will continue working on this until I have 15-20 maps and then I will release it with the name "Beautiful Nightmares".

 

Here is a compile of 12 boom maps in no particular order: bnight.zip

It runs on TNT.WAD and -complevel 9.

Maps 1-7 are fully functional although not completely balanced yet, map 8 is just a message that says "incomplete maps ahead" (making the total 13) and the rest are, well, incomplete.

 

Good show lads, I'll be checking out your wads shortly, maybe I'll even do some demos on them!

good work everyone :3
i'll have a twelve midi pack coming out sometime in december from my work on this
not as many tunes as I imagined but I'm fairly happy with them all

(then maybe I'll map for zekhmet or start a doom 1 episode to go with the new songs)

A playable alpha release is here!

http://www.mediafire.com/file/d3wkllwlp414ggm/doomdoom-alpha.zip/file

There's quite a lot of work to do, 5 maps are incomplete, 1 just needs to have monsters, guns and items placed.

Plus some maps needs to have better thing balance (mostly on episode 3), but is playable at least.

 

Is a Ultimate doom megawad, vanilla compatibility.

For playing this on chocolate doom, just type -merge doomdoom.wad -deh doomdoom.deh using choco port

 

It will be completed, but first gave me a break and then i'll finish this out

Finished most of the map, only a bit of detailing left to do.

I'll definitely continue this pack and shoto for a near-future release.

Congrats to everyone who managed to hit the goal, and everyone else who's like me - what matters most is that you made things and had fun with it. :)

Alright.  32 maps done before midnight, November 30th, 2018.

 

Map31:

You might recognize this map :)

 

Map32:

You might recognize this map also, it's just Entryway done from memory in 30 minutes 

:)

 

Map30:

okay so you won't recognize this one like the other two, but it's just a quick and dirty credits map.  No one said you couldn't throw in cop-out maps.

 

Here's an uncompiled zip of what I have pre-deadline, for sake of "Official NaNoWadMo Certification".

NoisyDiarrhea_uncompiled.zip (vanilla compatible; light playtesting in chocolate and prboom+)

I have errands tomorrow but I'll try to order and compile the megawad later.  Also, especially in it's current state, it's mostly a bunch of unrefined, unbalanced shit that I squirted out in a months time.  Play at your own risk.

 

Congratulations to all participants.

I know I didn't sign up for this but posting it anyway since its still technically November here :P

 

So Between November 17th and 30th I was able to crap out 3 2+ hour speedmaps(despite my limited time these days) that will be the start of a Doom 2 megawad I'm attempting to make.

 

May I present to ya'll...

I only set out to make 8 or 9 maps, and I got halfway finished with 6 of them. I think it's enough for me to keep going, though. I'll probably work on it a bit more this weekend and release it when it's finished.

Here's the alpha version of Halfdeath, my contribution for this challenge. Right now it includes 12 maps for GZDoom. It's intended for continuous play, but all maps have been tested from pistol start. I want to get to 17 maps (15+2 secrets) and polish the whole pack. I hope you like it although I tested a pair of silly ideas inbetween. All feedback is appreciated.

I enjoyed the challenge a lot, although I would have liked to put a bit more commit (I got sick a few days). It's my first time releasing a map pack so it was a learning experience. I think I improved my map speed, but I still lose time with stupid little details instead of progressing. Also I believe I still have the issue of doing kind of flat maps mostly.

Six weeks ago, my goal was 11 maps. Then four weeks ago, my goal was 6 maps. As of a week or two ago, my goal was 2 maps. And now, here we are.

 

Here's my update. I didn't get any maps made. I managed to finish a short map for 1 community project, but I had even less time this month than I expected. Oh well.

 

@Ryath has mentioned doing this again next year, but in a different month than November. I'm looking forward to that discussion.

 

Congratulations to everyone who did get mapsets and megawads finished!

So despite what I'd hoped, I wasn't able to scrape together the time to finish up another map, so Chicxulub Impact remains at five maps (E1M1-M4 plus M8).  The .zip file below includes a .deh patch which updates the automap names for these maps.  Replacement of in-game graphics files for the map names to follow in a later release.

Compiled NoisyNanowad (32 maps; vanilla): NoisyDiarrhea_beta1.zip

 

Targeted Format: Vanilla, though you can just play on cl9 be better off.

Functional Bugs (*known): at least one map visplane overflows if an archvile pops you off in a certain place;  Map04 has crushers unintentionally insta-crush you on cl2; Map09's exit is a little weird.

Difficulty Settings: Sorta for a couple, but not fully implemented

Hey all! Keep the submissions coming. I'm going to play every single map made for NaNoWADMo -- in the order they were posted in this thread starting on November 30th. That means if you posted your WAD earlier in the thread, I'd appreciate if you posted again just to bring it to my attention. Also, I'll add a link in the OP to your post (or your release thread if you've got one) in order to make all the NaNoWADMo WADs easy to find. If you'd rather I didn't link to your WAD until it's in a more finished state, etc., just say so and I'll hold off.

Here's my little mapset, (which I just titled) Beyond the End! It has three whole maps, and even a storyline. You're one of the few surviving humans after the invading demons destroyed civilization decades ago. You've been doing relatively well in your hidden underground bunker, until your place has been found by a gang of looters. They knocked you out, stole everything of value you had, and kidnapped your boyfriend in hopes of benefiting from his scientific knowledge. Now it's time to leave your old home behind and travel the hostile surface...

 

It's a pretty cool idea, maybe I'll expand on it one day.

Well, as you might have been able to guess, I fell off the wagon hard after the first several days.  I really underestimated how nuts November would become, but even before that my efforts were mediocre and incomplete.  I learned a lot about where I tend to get stuck when it comes to mapping, though, and I have hopes for being able to turn that experience into better work down the road.

Thanks for the updates, folks. I'm still updating the OP and working on playing through your WADs.

Speedmapping tends to teach you a lot about your mapping hangups. I'm glad you got something out of NaNoWADMo, even if you weren't happy with the maps themselves. Keep working on them, though, and see what they turn into!

Hey I posted in the previous thread. It was no where near 32 maps but it was something. It's surprisingly difficult to remain focused with such tight deadlines and real life things. Anyways, add my set to the OP. It is as 'done' as this is going to get.

Even if you didn't make a full megawad (mine was only 8 maps), events like this give incentive to finish something, so you still accomplished a thingy.
