yeah, a scenario like. "Heaven is under attack and God calls upon you to liberate Heaven"

or something like that.

Doom's hell doesn't need Satan so its heaven doesn't need God.

Nah....would be the usual UAC portal shenanigans all over again taken to another level and take the brain of the Icon of Virtue in Heaven and corrupt it or something like that.

Dear Doomer Boards,

We have two (er...3, actually) Christmas-themed Wads now, but isn't it time to give those other holidays a little love? Where are my Hanukkah and Kwanzaa-themed Wads?

And why stop there? We've got lots of spooky wads for Halloween, but how about something festive for Easter? Or Valentine's Day? St. Patrick's Day? Labor Day? And I think we can all agree that Doomworld will not be the same after we've all played President's Day: The Megawad.

You know those old counter strike maps that are just someone's house but huge? Yeah, I want that but as a whole map, giant doom cute.

Have you, by any chance, tried MAP40 from DMP2017?

There's a lot of construction going on in my town right now, and the construction company's called "Urban64". And I thought that sounded like a great idea for a Doom 64 wad. Off the top of my head, I think early Hellbound and E1M7 of HYMN would be good examples for it to follow.

Something with a gas station.

 

If it counts, Heartland's Map01 has a gas station area that can be accessed via secret.

Can't believe I'm saying this unironically, but I want to see more FIREBLU-themed wads.

Also more cyberpunk, please!

Few quick themes I can think about it:

  • More other games themed levels, we have few, but I'd like to see more.
  • Ancient ruins like in Babylon/Mesopotamia, India and so on.
  • Underwater ruins and domes like in Heretic(Atlantis, anyone?)
  • More purple please, not enough purple in the levels.

psychodelic maybe? it would be kinda messy visually, ngl, but it's something that I haven't seen yet.

lillith.pk3, for ZDoom. Doesn't work with any other source port.

Bloodstain MAP32 might suit your fancy.

One thing I've never seen a map commit to from beginning to end is flesh, that one intestine texture doesn't see enough love

Im actually doing something like that.

 

I think i posted some screenshots in the doom pictures thread.

Its map 01 so its flesh infused techbase but the second half is going to be all flesh and bone.

Early 1900's Europe

Renaissance Italy

Ancient Rome/ Greece

Soviet Russia/ East Germany/ Warsaw Pact/ Cold War

India/ Asia in general (including Persia, Afghanistan, China, Japan)

Byzantine Empire/ Balkans/ Anatolia (and Caucasus), orthodox churches, hilly terrain, maybe some Ottoman Empire as well

African savannahs

Whatever theme is present in Quake Alkaline's Dancing in the Golden Sun

Swamps

Autumn

If some of these use dehacked stuff/ if they are TCs like Rekkr they're bound to be masterpieces.

OMG it really does look like Castle Oblivion.

 

Alright, how about the Pride ring of Hell?

I was going to do something like Babylon for my megawad, at the MAP20 slot, I hope vanilla limits don't prevent me from doing so.

Tho sticking to the topic, I've been dying to see a Final Fantasy themed wad. Especially think FF7 can translate extremely well into Dooms texture aesthetics for a dystopian cyberpunk type mapset....think BtSX meets CC4 Map20/21 meets OTEX meets Ribbiks. Idk, just something which Ive always kinda wanted to see :3

I might be wrong, but that sounds like BTSX to me!

 

I didn't actually play BTSX for any considerable contiguous stretch, but I saw a bunch of decino videos on it.
