hey thanks for playing man, glad you liked the visuals and the last fight. I'm definitely considering not hiding the archy behind hidden middle textures and maybe making a more open structure in the middle to hold it. as for the archiy not teleporting I have no idea why that would happen all the times I tested it on DSDA doom complevel 21 it worked fine, it may be the source port your using or the compatibility level? with the second fight that was definitely a concern and I'm thinking of taking a few demons from the final room and making them block the door, idk ill fix it.

 

again thanks for the feedback

 

 

I tried it in both dsda-doom and in gzdoom (the first version of the map) and I think it only worked once for me. I assume it has to do with the fact that the teleport lines are on the edge of the platform, but I don't know enough about the engine/complevel specifics to say why that would be the case.

 

 

I played through the last remaining maps. This should cover all submissions so far.

 

Blueberry Castle by @DynamiteKaitorn

Spoiler

Only some very minor comments:

- The blue key door is not very obvious, especially given the color scheme of the map. And the blue key is kinda hidden as well (I didn't notice that I picked it up). I don't *think* it will lead to confusion, but it might.

- It seemed a little weird that when you grab the SSG, it opens up a closet with bullet ammo. It did make me look closer and find the secret so maybe that was the idea.

 

Trapped in Remnants (v2) by @RastaManGames

Spoiler

Pretty neat arena! I was a little confused by the colored pillars at first, because the next switch you have to press is the color that's no longer visible.

 

You can 'cheat' by just pressing all the switches without shooting. You'll only have to dodge a couple of imps, and then all you have to do is quickly kill the baron and exit. The map isn't so hard that this is a major issue, but forcing you to shoot a switch at the beginning could prevent that.

 

Vile Keep by @ryiron

Spoiler

Great effort for your first public map. It has varied combat and pretty solid visuals. I didn't find any issues, but it definitely needs some music to go with it.

Yeah, I'm still with you. I was making a level and forgot to save, and then builder crashed so I'll be remaking my level from scratch. I've got an improved idea anyway.

@SCF Oooooooooooooh... just.... OOOOOOOOOOOOH! Ahem... this shit was just straight-up nasty. You're a big meanie, fam. It's doable, but I imagine this will likely piss some people off. I think maybe giving an SSG at least would've been charitable, but that's up to you of course. Cool map, but as really bloody mean lol.

Don't worry, I'm still working a little on this! Recently I've added more rooms and a exit (that needs better detailing).

Thank you, I'll take it as a compliment :D

 

I wanted the map to have some teeth, but I don't think it's close to the hardest submission so far (although it looks like you haven't played the ones I'd consider harder yet). The lower difficulties should be significantly more forgiving. I will say that chaingunning the archvile and praying he gets stunned is not the intended strategy in that room, it's not meant to be *that* unfair :)

Well, it's winter up here, time to check how everyone is doing! Still had some real busy hours on my end, but expect a screen sooner rather than later.

 

@LGmaire - @Obsidian - @Bri - @finnks13 - @PinkFlamingo - @Bloodbath Giraffe - @myolden - @lokbustam257 - @RastaManGames - @DynamiteKaitorn - @Origamyde - @NoReason - @BENCHY - @alexsa2015sa - @SCF

 

Thank you all for the maps! I'll take some time this holiday to perform some writeups about them, but so far everything has been rather enjoyable if sometimes ballbreaking (looking at you finnks and noreason!) Happy holidays to all of you, and if you feel like making more maps, the door is always open!

 

You're welcome! I am quite excited to see the writeup for my map. I still somewhat of a recent community member, so I'm happy to see my works be accepted in a community project, and have people say that they like it. :)

I will probably make another map soon, no promises though.

Happy Holidays everyone! Made updates to my map. I consider this to be the final version. Further updates should only be for bug fixing or small tweaks based on feedback.

Changes to version 1:

- Made small changes to the final fight, based on feedback from @SCF. Replaced two of the cacos with pain elementals. I believe this fight is much more interesting now. The other fights have also been tweaked. UV is a bit harder.

- Adjusted the lighting/contrast to look better in dsda-Doom (previous version was too dark).

- Improved the visuals of the start and exit areas.

- Sky texture was changed to SKYESSLR. Map is now set in a more surreal space environment.

- Added two secrets for you to find.

- Co-op and deathmatch support (co-op is just the extra starts, deathmatch limits the playable area to the final arena).

Unfortunately in the run up to Christmas my creative juices well and truly fell off a cliff. Hopefully I will get back on the horse so to speak when I return home after the usual family visiting shenanigans that are commonplace over the coming days.

And thus arrives the first version of my map.

Map Name: Azure Crypt
Author: MFG38
Theme: Medieval / Castle(ish)
Music: "Dark Expanse" by Ribbiks
Difficulty Settings: Yes
Ports Tested: dsda-doom 0.21.3, GZDoom 4.7.1

Description: A small crypt deep in the basement of a medieval castle. Don't let the name fool you - it's anything but quiet down
here.

Notes: Difficulties don't change enemies too much, apart from replacing the shotgunners with zombiemen and the cyberdemon with a
baron on lower difficulties - what mostly changes with them is weapon/ammo placement. Layout was speedmapped in 30 minutes.

CWILVxx and UMAPINFO also included.

Thanks a lot for the playthrough! Seems like the difficulty is alright with each fight being a bit more difficult than the previous.

 

Yeah, solid progression, fam. Good stuff

So thought that I would give this a try. This ended up being a little more difficult than I had originally imagined. I haven't released many WADs, this is my second ever, so some feedback would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I really went all in with the blue theme.

@Dr Fluffystuff That's one awesome little map, mate. Nicely detailed with gorgeous texture work and a fun, challenging progression flow. Besides that one HOM error I spotted on the crusher, I didn't notice anything broken, out of place or unbalanced. A terrific effort for your second WAD ever!

@Biodegradable Thanks for the feedback. Glad to hear that it was balanced and fun, was worried I may have been a little to harsh. I actually dialed back some of the fights, think I was playing to much Sunlust and it rubbed off on me. I fixed the HOM issue and a few texture alignment issues I had found. Edited my above post
