[New Heh Project] Your First Playable Map

Recommended Posts

I got an idea for a new wad, where everyone here on doomworld includes their first playable map. A map that contains a start, a exit, weapons and monsters and probably skill levels counts as playable. I will compile all these maps into one huge wad and release it. Wouldn’t it be fun seeing how everyone’s first map looked like, heh.

Rules:
Map must be playable.
Map must be Boom-Compatible.
Map must have enemies/exit/items, if it does not, just place one there.
Map must not be a porn wad :\, or contain impse :(

The deadline is 1st November 12:00 PM GMT, I will not accept maps after this date.

Now go ahead: Post your first maps

EDIT: Oldest map you still have might do, if i'ts old enough...

EDIT: Make the links stay alive until the deadline (1st November) because i will download all maps then

I made that map like 8 years and 4 computers ago. There's no chance in Hell I'd be able to find it now. I remember the first playable map I made that I LIKED. It looked really bad, but it had all kinds of stuff in it that all my previous maps just didn't have. Ah, DoomE2, the shitties editor ever made.

I remember DoomCenter doing a feature like this during its last active months. Mine was featured and was apparently "fun", but that was years ago and I'm not sure I still have it. I'll post it if I can dig it up.

I have mine, found it the other day(...)
Pray to God before you play this. I removed the 20 or so HOM.

Hmm... well, your map definitely lacks the usage of varied textures, and the gameplay flow is quite obvious... to some extent.
But speaking seriously - SHIT! you already knew how to make SKY_1 walls?
...okay, that wasn't too serious either.

EDIT
ellmo.drdteam.org/ellmomap.zip]A set of my very first four maps.
I made them using shareware DeePsea,so I was limited to 200 sectors and 1200 LineDefs per level... or something like that. Aside from map04 this is playable.

Holy crap, I still have that! I followed the tutorial from Wadauthor to make my first map.

Shit, I even still have my crappy maps for Pokestein Doom.

ellmo: thats why the link says pray to god. And the sky wall thing was purely by accident. At the time I didn't know wtf was wrong.

Ok, some replies to posts:

@Kristian Ronge: After all, this is just a bunch of crap maps together, not made to become the greatest wad of all times, heh. Also i bet some of those maps in that thread cannot be called playable.

@Everyone who posted more than one map: Please choose one of your maps to be included, probably the first one would be nice.

@Everyone who posted 1 map: Thanks for your submission!

My first playable map (as in had a player 1 start) was a one sector labyrinth with about a hundred linedefs and a hundred monsters. Basically I just id-quidded and watched the baddies make sport of each other. Believe me. This was popcorn entertainment back then.
God, I can't believe I enjoyed using DEU 5.21. Or that I still used it up until a few years ago.
If you want the map, go search the dump where the computer's hard drive was left to rot.

haha my first editing was modification of a Star Trek level... I couldn't even get the Holodeck floor and wall lines to line up correctly!

My first real level was a map of my school, which anyone with a copy of AD has.

Thanks for your maps so far :]

@Belial & Ralphis: You could allways try to convert the map for doom2, i don't think it would take too much of your time...

Heh I don't have my first ever map any more, but I do have my second (or third, can't remember). It's in desperate need of more ammo though, so I'll add some and upload it.

Edit: And here it is. MAP01 is the ammo-ified version and MAP02 is the original.

My first map was map24 for KamaSutra. I exactly don't know when i finished it but i guess it was at the beginning of 2004. It's boom and also doom2.exe compatible but trick with "two players1"(in the exit) doesn't work in some new ports like zdoom...You can get ithere.
I hope i realize rule about porn :) - It not contains any porn material so don't worry :)

I like this idea but it depends on:

- the maps must be playable (no real crap)
- there must be at least 20 maps in this wad
- a description which tells that this is no good stuff and so on

btw mine is from 1996

Uh, mostly people's very first maps are gonna be crap :/

ORLY?

I had a few old maps of mine on a backup CD, but since we should only post the oldest of our maps we can find in this thread, I have just uploaded a small, 4 year old map into archives.
I think it's the only one that didn't suck terribly among my 10 first maps, that were made mostly to learn not to play.
