It's a Work In Progress

Recommended Posts

Saw on yee ole Forums (but first through yee ole IRC) that one of our own forum mods, boris, has made a nifty new tool for all your crazy wad editors out there:

For the last couple days I've been working on a website called WIP - WADs In Progress. It's like The Pipeline, but for Doom maps only. If you don't know The Pipeline, here's what the page is for: level editors can post screenshots of their work-in-progress maps, and other users can post comments/feedback on those shots. If you want to post screenshots of your WAD or post comments on other people's shots you have to register first. Right now there are already shots of two WADs up, so make sure to check it out!

Yeah, so, uh, go check it out. Heh.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! .... for that absolutely hilarious idea-generator, boris! It left me rolling on the floor for hours laughing my ass off! Here's one that cramped me up for good:

Build a vast base map.
The player has to find some skull key,
find a big computer which is hidden behind a lot big computer,
destroy ridiculous numbers of big computer and
kill a lot Arachnotrons

Build a tiny demon invaded dark hellish hell map.
The player has to destroy some crates and
kill ridiculous numbers of Arachnotrons and
kill some Barons of Hell and
destroy a few crates and
kill ridiculous numbers of Spidermasterminds and
find a demon gateway which is hidden behind some demon gateway and
find a spaceport which is hidden behind two crates and
kill ridiculous numbers of Icon of Sin and
destroy ridiculous numbers of lost UAC machine and
find a soulsphere

I actually wrote that idea generator a couple moths ago, in fact I think way over half a year ago! It used to be on my page on slipgate.org, but since that's down (again) and it sort of fits to WIP, I put it up there.

I'm somewhat overwhelmend by the communities response to WIP! I didn't really expect that everybody likes it so much, looks like I hit a weak spot ;) Hopefully everybody will keep on using it, and won't forget it in two weeks :P I know it still has some small issues (not being able to upload new screenshots, for example), but I'll keep improve it, that's for sure.

I added a small statistics page, right now there are 38 registered users, 22 WADs and 66 comments, not bad for ~24hours.

Thanks everybody for the great feedback, and have fun using WIP ;)

For all of those who don't own their own webspace for screenshots and wad download, this is a very big thing.

Are you tired? I've never seen such shoddy English from you before! :P

The page's main purpose is to provide a central place for level designers to post screenshots of their projects. DW's WADs forum might be a good place to start, but "hey look at my screenshots" threads easily get lost between all the other threads. Plus you don't see the screenshtos on the forum's main page ;)

And yes, I'm somewhat tired. We could talk in PHP and SQL though ;)

I just want to say that a few register notice mails bounced, since there are some mail server that won't accept mails from dynamic IPs (spam protection), unfortunately my mail server is on a dynamic labled IP (I'm running it on a Linux box at home). So if you don't get any mails from WIP it's probably blocked by your mail provider. It's not really a problem though, you can log in without receiving the mail.

Good stuff. On Saturday DW said there were two WADs up, by the time I registered on Sunday, there were like 25 up there. Once again: good stuff, good stuff.
