I wouldn't recommend going for a full-fledged megawad if you're only starting out. Make a few small maps first to familizarize yourself with the workflow and see what works and what doesn't as far as level design is concerned. I've seen God knows how many overambitious beginners try to make the next big thing, only for their projects to fall through sooner or later.

 

Also, DB2 is outdated. Use Doom Builder X or Ultimate Doom Builder instead.

Ultimate Doom Builder is the continuation of GzDoom Builder?

If you're new, then making a megawad, even with help is a large job and it's a large amount of work for any skill level. Like MFG38 said, make some smaller maps and go from there.

 

Whatever you decide to do, have fun and good luck. ;)

Okay it's time for a review, first off the map starts off in a really shit way 4 shotgunners gang-fuck you the minute you spawn in, the super shotgun is given WAY too early and the health vials are useless plus playing on UV is a death sentence there are several texture issues which angers me.

The ceiling texture choice is vomit-inducing the geometry and design is terrible and the key cards are pitifully easy to snag, i understand that this is your first map but you really have a TON to learn about map creation.

 

RATING:1/10

I placed that shotgunners at the beginning because i wanted an action starting and that thing you said about them has maked me laugh out loud long as fuck but, talking "serious" the original idea for the map was a kinda Stranger-Things-ripoff-but-in-doom idea

i intend using teleports for making a way from hell to earth but without changing scenario i don't know if you understand
