Booked - A GZDoom-compatible CP where we do things by a preselected map title [no map slots left] - now with rampart uploader

Recommended Posts

You can now upload your maps here:

booked rampart map uploader, hosted by DavidX

 

After the success of Literalism, its time to throw another CP in to the mix...

It seems that project had way more interested mappers than slots... so here comes another community project, this one is hosted by your friend CBM!

 

This one is largely based off the same idea that Literalism uses (and I use the same rando name gen).

 

its here: http://www.teamhellspawn.com/exl/name_gen/

 

Idea in Literalism:

Quote

You know how in speedmapping sessions, you're often given a theme and/or restriction to work with? Well, this project sort of takes after the same idea - only instead of a theme, each mapper is given a random map title.

 

In Booked the idea is slightly changed:

Each mapper must select one out of 32 preselected map titles.

 

RULES & GUIDELINES

 

    IWAD is Doom 2, map format is UDMF.


    Mappers of all skill levels and mapping styles are welcome to participate.

    If you have no knowledge of UDMF, then its not a problem since using advanced features is entirely optional.

 

    Maps made for this project are to be primarily single-player. Coop and deathmatch implementation is optional.

 

    This is NOT a speedmapping project.

    You're free to work on your map as much as you want, as many days a week as you want, and make it as big as you can in the allotted time.

    See the "How to participate" section below for the submission deadline.

 

    Custom music and textures are both allowed ( OTEX is recommended - https://doom.ukiro.com/otex-downloads/ ).

    Please avoid making death exits.

    Please avoid making a Terry WAD or something offensive.

    Please avoid copyrighted music.

    Please implement difficulty settings if you can.

  

    Must importantly... have fun.

 

    Your map MUST use the map title you are given as its map name and custom monsters are not allowed.

    These are the only real restrictions. Other than that, go nuts.

 

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

 

    Make a post in this thread saying you wish to participate and what available map slot you want.
    Wait for a post from me with confirmation of your map slot selection.

 

     Also, please note that you may have to wait a few hours (or up to 48) to get feedback, confirmation etc... depending on

     whether I'm at sleeping or whatever the case may be.
    

    Make a note of your map slot and map title somewhere and make a map inspired by the map title that belongs to the map slot you were given.

 

    You can request multiple map slots if you feel you are up for it.

 

    Submit your finished map by December 1st @ 11.59am GMT+1.

 

SUBMISSION TEMPLATE

 

Here's a template for map submissions, please fill it out to the best of your ability while submitting your map:

 

Map name: [title of your map, even though I already know what it is based on your selected map slot, but still]

EDIT - I am considering renaming this project down the line... with a name like CAMP for example... CAMP would then stand for the Cacodemons And Maniacs Project, but we can always talk talk about this at a later date.

 

The name Booked was just because Literalism was booked :-D  ... Also I wanted this project to have a slight twist compared to Literalism... hence the predefined map names, the UDMF map format and the slight rule modifications.

NEW NEW NEW - 26/07-2021

 

MAPS 28, 29 and 30 now have two different map titles to choose between... in case one of the titles is more inspiring to a mapper than the other

 

NEW NEW NEW - 19/08-2021

 

Decided it was too confusing that MAPS 28, 29 and 30 had multiple names to choose from so they now all have a single name again, like the rest

Interesting. So do we choose the map slot, because it says that, but then says that you will choose it.

If we choose it, can I do map 20? Even though I'm in the other CP.

@CBM I've never done a gzdoom map before, so I'll take map02. I'll have to finish the other map though so expect me to be the last to submit something here.

sound interesting, I think I take MAP31, since I've seen too much mountain currently, and recently have an idea of a battle in a volcano

I figure I should let you know about this still being on your OP, which contradicts your rule about participating mappers picking the slot they want (and gives away the blatant copy-paste of my OP from the Literalism thread):

Map slots will be filled out in order of confirmation of participation. That means no reserving specific map slots!

 

Anyway, I'm happy that Literalism inspired a CP of a similar kind and I haven't done UDMF mapping in a while, so I'll bite. Slap me down for MAP12.

also, where the secret exit should be place? I mean it's UDMF fornat

MAP 31 is yours :-D

 

Well, I figure that maps 15 and 31 should have secret exits as well as regular exits just like Doom 2. But its up to you where you wish to place the exits in your level.

I figured that it seemd more people than you had map slots for was drawn to your project so I figured a UDMF version would be fun :-)

 

I will fix my OP ASAP :-)

 

Map 12 is yours and sorry about my blatent copy paste of your OP and the subsequent copy pasta errors :-D

Could I possibly get Map 09? Would love some space pyramids

Is there any kind of theme we should follow like i was reading the map names and i was like "i like the names but dose he want a theme to them or can we go hog wild?"

 

If there's not piratical theme to the maps then i might jump on this project but i don't know UDMF map format (haven't used it, i can learn how to) Besides i've been itching to do another map anyways since i'm on a hold on a wad i'm doing solo (personal) and a community project wad.

 

If slot one isn't taken i'll give it a shot. Just need to know what theme and what kind of layout you want in it.

MIDI only?

Any format supported by GZDoom is fine by me honestly.

But I guess MIDI and MP3 are the most commonly used formats.

When it is a MIDI then there shouldnt be any problems regarding copyright... as long as everybody avoid using MP3 music files of copyrighted music then we should be fine
