Recommended Posts

 

You should join this band.

<------- They have also been teasing and promising stellar content for years. ;)

Lost Civilization's entire development cycle has been the blink of an eye compared to a lot of things currently in progress.

 

Anyway, looking forward to the release!

Now that's a (Doomy) holiday I'm interested to take.

Excited for this project! Think that these semi-realistic, nature-themed maps are the kind of aesthetic that is explored not nearly enough in Doom mapping.

 

As a shameless self-plug, I did a heavily modded playthrough of the previously released Episode 1.

Don't quite get it.

 

Yes, I'm very slow on mapping. Had to work and do other stuff as well sometimes :) Now I can concentrate on this better as I'm recovering that surgery and can't do anything physical.

The screenshots look absolutely gorgeous, the architecture alone in a lot of those shots is really spectacular. Can't wait to see how these maps play!

They were never the same without Christian Älvestam anyways... :(

I was just giving you a hard time, comparing you to a band that has been "gonna release their next album soon" for like three years. This wad I'm quite sure will be worth the wait.

Thanks! I'm watching that video tomorrow or day after tomorrow. Those are very valuable for making the maps better. All feedback is very important because I want to make this as good as possible. I wonder if there is like IRC-channels, twitch streams that I'm not aware of where people comment wads they play.

@AL-97 Watched the video. That was fast and furious! You didn't seem to have problems at all, nice playing! Nice mods too.

@Jaska The hardest part, as silly as it might sound, was learning the route through MAP05: Lost In The Forest. It's one hell of a huge, maze-like, complicated level. And if you'll allow for a small criticism, MAP03 feels way too easy with its mostly cannon fodder enemies at its current spot. It was an opening level in an even earlier release, wasn't it? Maybe return it there for a final version?

I'm thinking of changing the progression on map05 but haven't figured yet how. Yes, map03 was the first map on earlier version. Have to think about it.

"So, maybe I should just finish and release all of the most finished ones and leave the others to make a sequel or something."

 

I think episode packs are the way to go, that way we can experience it without the long wait, but still have more to look foreword too.

 

And amazing work so far, but are you only doing ancient ruins? Because I was thinking Alcatraz would be perfect for this mod. But obviously take your time on it.

 

Edit:I already see theres a prison map so having two prison levels would be kind of redundant.  However I would still love more modern ruins, maybe something Chernobyl inspired?

I have an idea of a map where is like division between natural and urban environment. But I'm very sure it won't be in next release..

@Jaska just release stuff when you feel like it! Don't wait till you complete a thirty-level megawad. Everyone gets spurs of inspiration at different rates and you never know if your personal schedule will allow you to keep working on a project on a regular basis. Besides, episodic releases are more feedback-friendly too, they allow you to improve upon your weaknesses, making the next mapset that much better!

That looks amazing. But definitely take your time with individual episodes, and save the concept maps for later so you can finish up what your already working on.

This is Doom abstract-realism taken to its highest level. To say, "I'm looking forward to this" is the understatement of the year.

Soon!

 

Map16 need maybe some modifications and playtesting. Or if I'm lazy I'll leave it that way.

I have only the last map to complete. Not sure though if I split it into two maps. It has 2 quite different themes:

Don't remember how long it was at this point

Holy crap these screenshots are beautiful. If you'd like, I'd be extremely happy to playtest some of these maps and record video with commentary. Maybe even livestream, though I'd have to see what my internet connection thinks of that notion first.

Thanks! Well when I finish this last map I'm putting download link for all. That's because everytime I do the final wad where I remove unused textures etc. there has been problems. So I don't want to face them twice, huh.
