[Now on /idgames!] 3x3 - 3 flats, 3 textures, 3 monsters! community speedmapping(ish) project

Recommended Posts

As the submission deadline approaches, I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed into 3x3 so far. Thanks to you, the project currently has 24 maps by 21 mappers in its roster! (That's 75% of the number of maps in a 32-level megawad!) Which, for the first community project that I'm hosting, is already more than I expected. If anyone else still wants to contribute and help make the push to the full 32, you have 6 hours to get your maps in.

A third map wouldn't be accepted, huh?

@Breezeep Nice work! I really enjoyed that map. Lovely brutalistic visuals, well-crafted layout with nice flow, and the barrels scattered throughout create the potential for very tactical gameplay. About my only criticism regards the one secret in the map - I like the thought behind it, and it's subtle enough that you can easily miss it unless you really pay attention to the environment, but it's too easily given away by the fact that it's not hidden in automap view. That's the only thing I think needs fixing.

Unfortunately not, and I'm not changing that rule on this short a notice either.

I had a lot less time than expected due to christmas/new year stuff such as cleaning the entire house. The end product isn't very similar to what I had in mind.

While I normally can decide if I like what I made or not, in this case I really can't tell if like it. See for yourself.

I have a question, does map 31 have a secret exit to access map 32? (I haven't tried out any of the maps since I want to play the compilation as a whole)

Updated my map:
- Implemented difficulty settings
- Added some extra monsters for multiplayer
- Fixed a few misaligned textures
- Added some extra cover in a couple of spots when playing on easy
- Made one secret less obvious, and another one more obvious
- Adjusted many line flags to improve the automap view
- Added some extra enemies in one part of the map, and a little extra ammo and health too

 

Download: Immundus_Stagnum_v2.zip (I kept the wad filename the same as before, without '_v2' in it.)

I'll take the liberty of updating MAP31 such that its exit will lead directly to MAP32.

~~~ TIME IS UP! ~~~

 

MFG38 thanks all participants. Final map roster will be announced and updated in the OP momentarily.

Alright, the final map roster has been decided upon and updated in the OP. I'll give all mappers who participated an extra 12 hours (as of the time of this post) to bugfix and otherwise update their maps as they see fit. Those whose maps don't have custom music yet - namely @NaturalTvventy and @revlis - may also add a custom music track if they wish, otherwise I'll assume the default music track of the respective map slots. Once I have the latest versions of everyone's maps, I'll get around to compiling the wad, and the full 29-level megawad should show up here within the first few days of 2021.

 

Stay tuned!

Did just that. Changed the red key "trap" and made some minor visual changes. Basically touched up the map a bit.

Thanks for hosting this project. It's been several months since I played Doom and made a map for it.

I'm updating my map. I found a few things to change.

Changelog:
• Changed door open linedefs to be "fast" from "normal."
• Fixed blue torches to appear in the alcoves of embedded ruin along the wall.
• Altered geometry where a wall would appear invisible and fixed wall texture alignment in the gorge.
• Balanced deathmatch to be boring instead of unfun.

Blazing_Emerald_v2.zip
New version adds some big pillars to the second fight to make it more visually interesting, and changes the exit to a secret exit in line with the map order.
It may also be set up in slade... strangely. Upon adding STARSKY1, it would refuse to launch as it couldn't find the SKY3 texture (despite it not even being used???). My solution was to create a texture archive using doom2.wad as a base, since it was the first thing I found that fixed it and the program honestly terrifies me too much to find anything better.

One final update to my map:
- Made one mandatory leap easier to pull off without straferun
- Adjusted the position of some trees so they obscure the view less
- Gave the player a little more room to maneuver outside

The compilation process is beginning!

 

By the way, not sure what the plan for this is, but I would suggest first releasing a release candidate, eg. "3x3_rc1.wad" so that the wad can be playtested and any map breaking issues that may have managed to slip in, can be fixed before the final version is uploaded to /idgames. In the best scenario, this could just mean having to rename the wad file if no major issues are found. I'm hoping that this suggestion doesn't go too much against the spirit of the project, and that it's worth-while to do so, in order to present a more solid megawad to the people wanting to play through it once it's finished.

That was my plan from the get-go, worry not.
