Can hell be blue?

 

Yes it can! As a matter of fact I'm almost done with my blue map for this project! Remember how Dante described finding Satan in a frozen lake in the ninth circle of hell?

One question i forgot to ask: is the 13 sectors only gimmick intended to be taken as LITERALLY made a map with a map with 13 sectors ONLY or is something more like 10 sectors?

13 sector limit. Like @Jark's Modest Mapping Challenge. Or like the 12 Days of Doommas.

@BoxY Just played through your level. Had quite a blast! 

 

I'm consistently impressed by what some people are able to create with so little. The intense fights with rockets/barons was really cool.

 

Some things of note: The door textures were not unpegged for the red key door, and a few monsters failed to spawn into the map (seen here on the automap).

Spoiler

All I have to really suggest gameplay wise is to change up how the red key fight is done. Personally speaking, I thought it was too easy :p The area of that room where the red key sits is wide open and safe. And while that is nice, I think focusing more on the gimmick of the room will help it stand out more. A simple addition will fix this: add a switch or something to open the door, but require the red key to use it. This will make it so the player has to grab the red key and run back across the maze to go open the door.

 

Other than that, I found this to be a very fun and challenging level. (I died more on the platforming section than I did the rest of the map lololol)

Agreed, the RK fight ended up being chopped up a bit too much because the original version of it was too hard for my tastes (like 5 extra barons and cacos would warp in that tiny room and immediately block every path) and there were also a lot more barons on the RK, half of which I deleted because I thought it would be too boring to have to rocket them all after the fight was over but it had the side effect of making that area a lot safer to camp in. If I had more time to think about it I probably would have just put more telefrag sectors on that area to reduce the safe space and it would have been fine. The broken door textures I knew about but didn't have time to fix, also there are 2 missing textures in the crusher room that I noticed at the very end, but I was really burning time at that point so I decided to stick to the spirit of the time limit. Thanks for the very fair and perceptive feedback.

 

The monsters that got stuck seem to be a gzdoom thing with the teleport linedefs because it can't happen in Boom, I'll look at that in a bit because I want the map to be maxable on all ports.

I think I have to give up making the map maxable in gzdoom, because the problem is a bit tricky. In Boom no monsters can cross the teleporter linedefs in the RK room and get stuck in the voodoo doll closet because they all fail the same two checks when trying to teleport, 1) that there's no player hitbox in the destination (there is) and 2. that there's enough space to fit (there isn't). For some godforsaken reason though in gzdoom default compat at least, flying monsters can apparently ignore both checks and can teleport anywhere, even if there are literally zero units of valid space to fit in (like if the destination is a 32x32x56 unit box with a player in it). Hence cacos and lost souls get vacuumed up after they warp in and become stuck in the void. I can't do much about this except by removing all flying monsters in the room which includes the 13 lost souls, which is a bit ugly and breaks one gimmick, so I won't. I'm honestly surprised this wasn't complained about and fixed long ago because it seems like a serious flaw with flying monster behaviour that can probably break other maps pretty easily. Anyway, this probably partly explains why that fight felt too easy because a bunch of monsters got poofed out of it. If someone knows how to get around this problem I'll hotfix it, if not, I don't think I can do much sadly.

 

Anyway I did clean up some crap and de-cheese the RK a bit while I was looking at this so I guess this is a v2: pussxiii-bx-v2.wad

Well, I wanna kill myself. I had a map I was satisfied with, was pretty proud of what I was able to achieve within the time limit-
And then I realized we had 3 hours to map, not 4 hours. Well, my stupidity aside, I'd still like to share my map, just so that the time spent doesn't go nowhere, even if I can't make it into the project anymore.

Map Name: Of Blood And Stone
Author: Jacek Bourne

Music: Unresolved by James Paddock

Sky: Unneeded

Format: Boom

Difficulty Settings: UV only

Build Time: 2:53:08
Gimmicks: 13 Lost Souls, 13 Barrels, 3 Crushers

Comments: I'm quite happy with how this map came out despite not having access to doom 2 enemy types. My original inspirations were sunder map11 and Mouse by Phml from sf2011. Somehow it turned out more like sunder map08 than either of those two. I decided to focus on larger hoards this time as opposed to my usual smaller enemy amounts. I like the atmosphere I've created in this speedmap. I would appreciate complevel -1 FDAs or recorded playthroughs if you wish to do so.
