Doom 2 - Awakening (Updated 10/1/11)

Recommended Posts

Doom 2 - Awakening will be a 35 map megawad project for Doom 2, it was inspired by Doom 64. It has all Doom 64 texture's, Doom 64 item sprite's, and weapon sprite's. There will also be custom monster's and weapon's. I have 19 map's so far. The music track's will Doom 64 track's and PSXDOOM music track's but mostly Doom 64 track's, and the sound's will be replaced with PSXDOOM/Doom 64 sound's, the source port that this project is for is Gzdoom, I also made the weapon's more realistic by making the screen shake when you shoot the SSG, RocketLauncher, ChainGun and also they will push you back a few inches along with the BFG, here are some screenshot's:

At the end of the project I will go back through and add more detail, leave some comment's and tell me what you think.

Here are the updates:

  • Added new monster: Afrit
  • Added the Doom 64 water effect
  • Added the Doom 64 torchpoles
  • Added new weapon: Minigun
  • Added new weapon: Unmaker
Here is what I plan on doing in the future:
  • Making a nightmare Hellknight
  • Making a nightmare Demon
  • Adding the three (or more) keys that were in Doom 64 so you can use them on the last level
I probably think of more stuff to add so if you guys think of anything, please tell me and I'll try to accomplish them.

I did mean to make the levels go from tech levels to hell levels than back to tech levels but MAP13 is the last tech level, not counting the secret maps.

Anything in the style of Doom64 is good in my book. I look forward to seeing more of this.

This sounds and looks appealing, although, it does look a bit too dark. I like dark maps also, but may I suggest adding some more light sources? The thing that makes dark maps eerie is the proper balance of light and shade, a stark contrast. Shadows are just as nice as flat-out darkness, but they add more depth and intensity to the atmosphere. I would experiment with different light sources and their strengths until you find a reasonable balance between light and shadow.

I look forward to this when it's done!

Are you going to use the full line up of monsters or just the ones found in Doom 64?

Yes I will use all the monster's in Doom 2 and the nightmare imp from Doom 64 but im also thinking of making another nightmare monster to go along with the nightmare imp.

I've never played doom64, so I don't know how it compares, but those screens look really bland to me. The ultra saturated colored lighting combined with basically no variation in light intensity makes it look more like a bad acid trip than a doom level (or a sweet acid trip)

What source port is it?

The naming convention of the screenshots (screenshot<game>_<data><time>) is that of ZDoom and derivatives. Given the couple of screenshots with a weapon name printed on it (SUPERSHOTGUN, ROCKETLAUNCHER), I'd say it's Skulltag.

Eyup. I'm looking forward to this now. BUt those screenshots do portray this as being very dark. But that sets the mood.

Well some part's of the map's are darker than other's but the whole map isn't as dark as the pic with the Painelemental in it.

Here is a monster I made called the Nightmare Hellknight, its slightly translucent, moves a bit faster than the original, it attack in three's, throwing the green baron balls then its fourth attack is a homing, red baron ball and it does a bit more damage, it has a bit more health than the Baron of Hell and can not be resurrected by the Archvile. Here are some screenshots:

Thanks, it was originally going to be called Doom 2 - The lost story but I thought that sounded stupid.

This map isn't as long as the normal maps but I'd say it takes atleast 10 minutes, not too long some of my normal maps take around 20 - 25 (or 30 I forgot) minutes to complete and they are quite challenging ;) I'm not sure when this project will be done, I am currently on MAP20 and I am wanting atleast 40 so I am half way their I guess. Please leave your thoughts.
