Community Project : Doom II but the start and the exit are reversed

Recommended Posts

This sounds really interesting! A simple idea that should be a lot of fun. I can take one slot but I don't like episode 1 that much. I may sit here and wait a bit to decide which slot I prefer lol

Let me have Underhalls. Basically just put the exit switch in the original entrance room and make the exit room the entrance room?

That's the idea, yeah  :)

I wrote your name for underhalls ;)

 

Just read the rules/recommandations/allowed things if you want more explaination, or ask me if you need to know something.

Nice idea, I'd like to take Map 03, The Gantlet.
Why not name this "II Mood"?

 

Noted,

In fact, I had that idea but did not gave that name as it may already have been used, and I wanted something that stood out

Ill do map05. The Waste Tunnels is a map not a lot of people like (or at least I've heard) but I actually really like the map.

 

Also I wonder how maps like Tricks and traps will be like.

Is it legal?

 

Mh, why wouldn't it be?

Actually, we are  recreating the maps from scratch, and it MAY NOT be a copy past at all, plus you still need the commercial IWAD to play the maps. Maybe I'll add that line in the rules.

 

Though, if you can prove that it is an illegal project, I will delete it

As long as I know, I think this is legal :) The longer we don't just put it all the new maps directly in the commercial IWAD and share it for free.

If you wonder about using the original maps as models, I've already seen a lot of remake of theses maps, so if it would be illegal, a lot of peoples are x)

Idgames might not like it, but from my experience, they don't care at all. Unless it's really illegal.

We could maybe release 01-07, and then see what happens from there, then go 08-15, 15-23, and 23-30. Bundle the secret maps with 08-15, and then play all WADs at once!

Looks like a cool idea to me

Is it possible to make a PWAD that just moves the end switch near the start and moves the start places?

Of course, some teleporters, keys and switches have to be modified or moved too.

No, the main idea to strictly begin to the end and finish to the start, then apply this same rule to gameplay in general (I mainly think about monsters). Still Entryway at example : the two zombieman at the start will be moved to the end.

I'm mapping for my own slot right now, maybe a screenshot is more explicit (take note that this is absolutely not finished) :

So, ok all,

 

@xdude_gamer

@Hitboi

@Zulk RS

@mxbobbie49

@ScrappyMcDoogerton

@Engired

 

the delay to send me your map is October 24th.

If you may need more time, tell me in advance so I can reoganize all, note that I wont give you more than 7 bonus days.

Don't worry if you want to cancel your participation, just tell me as soon as possible,  so we may find another volunteer fast.

 

If you have any question or hesitate about something regarding your map, tell me :)

 

I recommend reading once little more the rules/recommandations/allowed things

and I remind you :

 

"What to do after my map is done ? Just check the linedefs, the sectors, the brightness, the tags, the effects, the textures and texture alignement before anything... I'm not looking for absolute perfection, but please avoid leaving big mistakes. Then, just send me a private message with a download link to your map. I'll prevent your for the release. :)"

 

The idea is to having fun and be proud of ourselves, I can totally be flexible on the rules, but keep them in mind though so this will improve the quality of the WAD,

Thank you, I'm really exited to see your maps, and wish you good luck :D

But you said one month, not "at the end of this month", I know that English isn't your native language, I don't have much problem with this deadline but I wanted to add optional stuff like deathmatch starts, multiplayer-only monsters, etc.

I think it isn't even if you play the maps with a free IWAD (that has it's own assets). I try to mix fights from diffierent areas so my map becomes less illegal.

The "7 bonus days" are in case of you didn't finished your map in the allotted time, but in principle you should finish on October 24, or before. It is not necessarily to force the hand, but rather to have a certain strict date and stick to it.

 

If you mappers think 1 month isn't enougth I still can extend the date though ?

I think you shouldn't, it's just 7 maps.


Okay, I thought we were in October then I checked the current month and I got September, nice.
