1 Sector Community Project

Recommended Posts

Same question as before: is sector joining allowed? If so, I'd like slot 14.

If that's to avoid the line of sight bug, it does not prevent that, I checked, but if you have other tricks in mind, I'd be curious to see what you've got so sure, go ahead.

I would like map02, if it's still open. 

 

Does anyone know if the Icon of Sin / Monster Spawner has additional issues? Otherwise, I'll take MAP30 as well.

- CL9 (Boom v2.02)

- Custom textures are allowed, but avoid over-usage

I would like to change my claimed slot to MAP16. The map I was making was based on custom textures, that are also too tall for original Boom, so I am going to withdraw it. However I have another idea for a map that should be fine with these clearer limitations. No hard feelings against you or Bobstremglav.

 

I'd appreciate a harder guideline about what "over-usage" of custom textures is, though it's not urgent. One option you might want to consider is providing a texture pack and limiting new textures to that pack; possibly Gothic's PatchTex which is new textures based on existing patches, and which @Quin's map already used.

edit: @Pistoolkip

The only relevant bug I know of with the IoS is that you can't have spawn spots that are exactly east or west of the spawner.

You're like addicted to map 30s

A one-sector Icon of Sin is going to be pretty interesting. No idea what exactly I'm going to do yet, though

Good suggestion! Doom 1 textures for Doom 2 should also be among the permitted texture packs. I will link both on the main thread.

 

The guideline is a bit unclear, I'll reword that too, but the idea is to not overuse non-vanilla (also the vanilla patches and Doom 1) textures as they would make the map look like it was taken out of a completely different project. This was what I'd originally written but then I decided to shorten it, in hindsight not a good idea.

I'll take a map where-ever

If someone could tell me what is going on here that would be great.

On GZdoom the midtextures appear but the sky transfer doesn't and on other ports it is the opposite.

Here's a texture pack that compiles both Doom 1 textures and Gothic's Patchedv2.wad, plus animated waterfall, mudfall, and lavafall textures, into one wad. Hopefully this is all OK to use.

Make sure to credit @Gothic in the release.

Nice find, but I'm afraid the extra animated fall textures will break backwards compatibility which I was hoping to preserve in this wad (for example, if someone uses sky transfers in their map, there would still be default agreed upon sky textures that will appear in sourceports with no sky transfer support). Or is there a way to add new animated textures into Boom maps that I'm unaware of?

 

Gothic is already credited in my personal notes alongside the midi artists :)

Yes, Boom introduced an ANIMATED lump for that purpose, and that wad uses one.

I compiled the wad by myself btw, though I don't need any credit for it.

Oh, that's very nice, thanks for the info! I think it's worth replacing the two linked wads with the combined wad then.

That's a pretty cool community project you got going. 1 sector? That's gonna be fun! Can I have map01?

Might be a bit before I get to it, but sign me up for a Fibonacci-numbered slot.

Seems like all are taken, I could have someone pick another slot or you can pick a non-Fibonacci number. I'm curious though, why such a seemingly random preference?

I actually had a person already snatch that one, but they are in the middle of creating a Doomworld account so I didn't get to close up the slot yet. My bad for not reserving it anyway :p Are you maybe interested in a different one?

Then I'd like to claim map 15. Especially if it comes with the duty to provide an additional secret exit.

Only secret map slot 31 is remaining. If there are more people interested in contributing, I will increase the total slot count for this project, which is fine because the maps are mostly 1-3 minutes long, but it will break backwards compatibility with the older and more faithful sourceports which was something I planned to preserve originally. What would you guys think?

Honestly, because I thought it'd be amusing to ask for something weirdly specific. But then I started actually thinking about a Fibonacci number-related map...

 

We were going to go beyond 32, right? Because 34 is a Fibonacci number

As an old guy (I turned 50 last month) I have an oldschool opinion on this. Keep it to 30+2 maps. Gather further applications for another one and release both wads simultaneously as “1 Sector Community Project Vol. I & II”, just like Guns'n'Roses did with their “Use Your Illusion” double album. 😁

There are some textures included, but I only use half of them. I used the others in order to create the TEXTURE1 lump. I have added a marker inside the WAD to indicate the textures that I have used, there are not that many(some, like LAVAFAL and WFALL seem to be included in the resources mentioned by others).

Personally, I'm sick to death of the rigid 30+2 formula. I think opening up more slots would be fantastic.
