Is anyone getting tired of making wads?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone planning on not making wads anymore? Or when do you think you'll ever 'retire'?

Not in the near future. Once I'm done with my big project that has been in works for almost a year now, is released then I believe I'll quit the community. Dunno why.

In the last couple of months, I have mainly been mapping for Doom 3, with a little bit of Doom 2 mapping on the side. That doesn't mean I'm going to completely quit making clasic Doom maps, though.

Never, I have actually made playing Doom and building wads into a life long hobby, and I hope others will do the same!!!
I have so many very good childhood memories of DooM on the BBS's and just playing through the original game when it was first released! I never want that to end...

Not really, no. Although I do keep cycling between being very sick of mapping and enjoying it immensely. Thankfully Doom Builder has taken out a lot of the tedium of it.

I got tired about 20% of the way through making my first map ever. Maybe I'll get more discipline later.

When you have too much other real life responsibilities that get in your way - that's when you can't feel tired, that's when you can never seem to get enough.
And that's my case.

The day I die is the day I stop DooMing, and that will never change. DooM was my first videogame, and it will be my last.

I'll probably make a skin pack and then I'll call it quits for doom editing...

I've still got a Wolfenstein 3d mod to finish.

No. I am actually getting fairly successful by the minute. Dunno how.

No. I have had periods where I've stopped mapping due to my own apathy and/or laziness. But right now I've got four maps (two for Doom, two for Doom2) that need to be finished, and I intend to finish them. After that, I'll continue mapping. I've been mapping four years now, so why would I suddenly quit?

With all your maps you could form a megawad. Why don't you make a megawad? That'd be cool.

Heh, not bloody likely :)
For one, I'm a terribly sloooooow mapper. For two, um...I dunno. I have the time (way too much of it) and the imagination. (I think)
The bad thing is I don't have that many maps that I've made on my computer right now, and only a few people have some of them. We're talking some older maps, like from 2003 or 2002, older maps that wouldn't cut it now. Of course that doesn't mean I couldn't fix them now does it?
However, off in the future, a nice 7 map episode of smallish, short levels would be nice...
