I have the start of an aesthetic for the map, just trying to piece together a layout for the map itself!

I'd like to have my slot assigned to MAP19.

I'll start making it soon.

I started working on my map again (not much yet, I mainly just set up a puzzle to access a secret that I had planned out months earlier). Before today I hadn't touched it since a few days after my last update which was almost two months ago, due to focusing on some solo projects. Provided I stop procrastinating and/or don't go overboard with the map's size, I should still finish it before the deadline.

Hey all,
Been 2 Months now since the project started which means it is once again time for a monthly check-up.
I'll be wanting to see any progress on your maps even a general idea would be nice too!
Me personally I've been very strained on time but things should be opening up in the coming weeks for sure, I'm somewhat expecting a surge of activity over the summer as that is when I'd imagine most people would have a bunch of free time to spare.

@Yop

Even trough I already had a general idea of what am I gonna do with a map once I signed up for project, sadly I wasn't able to put time into it before summer, so I only started a few days ago. Anyways, the map gimmik seems to work, and overall visual theme is also feels decent, so I think I will be able to release the map in early july, or late june

I have not done anything yet as I have a bunch of other projects.
It is also RAMP month so I think most people will be working on that.

Last couple months has been pretty hectic for me, so i haven't had the time/energy to get my map past the planning stages yet.

 

After this week however, things should be slowing down, and i'm planning to have something concrete to show by the end of the month.

Just to give a quick update: when I signed up I was in the middle of finishing a big Doom project, so I needed a break after that. I have some ideas, and I'll probably get started somewhere in the next few weeks.

The overall structure of the map is done and is way better than before, now it just needs some adjustments in terms of difficulty

Gonna start mapping in July, have something on the rougher side in mind. Slot 26 and the word "Ivy" is a dangerous combo.

I think I am going to drop my slot. I have a bunch of other projects that I am working on and just have not found the time or inspiration to work on this.
Good luck with the project though!

Very well you get Dystopia for a secret slot [Either MAP31 or 32], Alloy can be saved for a back-up just in case anymore people drop out. does that sound good? If no-one drops out then i'll include it as a bonus so it doesn't go to waste.

Hey all, time for the usual monthly check-in for the project.

I have to say my hope for this project is low, very low.
I will hold out hope though and not give this project up just yet, since summer is just starting and free time should be more abundant.
As always feel free to show your maps/progress that would renew some hope 

Here's some screenies from my map, progress of which is going smoothly, apologies if it's a bit dark.

Heya! I've had a lot of technical difficulties with my laptop as of late and between some personal circumstances and trying to finish other projects, I haven't been properly able to continue work on anything, this project included. Rest assured though that I will be getting something out for this project soon!!

A month ago I said I started working on my map again, but I immediately got distracted with other stuff. I'm still gonna finish it though!!!! I'll probably trim down the size of it so I can actually finish it on time, when I get back to working on it.

Why? Just because a handful of people have dropped out? That happens with every community project. The project leader saying something like this is only going to demoralize everyone who signed up.

I should've been more clearer in hindsight, my apologies.
My hope for this project is that the 33 maps all come in, that's it.
Lofty goal for sure, but people did it last year in about 4 months and i was/am determined to do it again.
People dropping out, that's fine, it happens. People having stuff irl stuff, that's fine. Or even other projects to attend to, that's fine too!
But, I expect to see stuff if you've signed up, that's all, if i'm not seeing stuff then a part of me going to be a lil' bit worried that the goal isn't going to be reached.
And if the wad doesn't reach its full goal that's fine, I can live with that it's not going to be the end of the world.

I sincerely hope you understand, and once again, my apologies for not being clearer.

To be fair, your last project had a restriction of maps being small, and small maps are faster to make, and this one doesn't have such a restriction.

People having other stuff to do is probably the reason maps aren't appearing as soon as you might have expected, it doesn't mean the project is dying!

I've participated in probably 30+ projects by now (help!!!) Trust me, you'll know when a project is truly entering "dev hell" for real.

I get where you're coming from, but with more than a month and a half until the deadline, it's way too early to be this pessimistic. 

 

On my end, I realize I'm a bit behind on the schedule I'd planned for myself. I said earlier that I'd have something to show by the end of June, and that didn't pan out. I've got a framework of a map built, and I'm happy with how it's turning out. However, I'm very new to mapping, so progress has been slow. I still fully intend to have it ready for the deadline though.

Here's an updated version of Labyrinth, I couldn't work on it for the last month or so, but I think it's almost complete. If you have any suggestions or issues, tell me
