Well, I made wild west and flying city (aka Bioshock Infinite) themed maps :D. Also some hellish version of soccer and a mostly crate-themed map. All this in WOOO.wad starting from map11 or so.

Snow/Christmas has been missed off that initial list as obvious ones. "Moving vehicle" seems to be a rare one that I've seen a few times too. TUD likes to do boats, Enjay has his famous Train, Action Doom 2 has a subway and there's been a few other boats and trains, plus space ships and miscellanea over the years.

The extra generic "techbase" theme and it's variants probably need to be mentioned explicitly too :P

Void, VR and retro are also themes that turn up often enough to be noted.

Not a bad idea, but some of them HAVE been done:

Wolfenstein

Doom 2 MAP31/32

joe-ilya said:

Castles

2-3 maps of Doom 2 episode 2 (eg: MAP14, MAP15)

joe-ilya said:

Doomworld

The Community is Falling (I think?)

joe-ilya said:

Sonic
Mario

Sonic Doom for the former, ZDoom mod "Doom: The Golden Souls" for the latter. I suppose you could just borrow resources from SRB2 at this point, it has some ripped art assets for both.

Commander keen

Spoiler

Doom 2 the Way id Did, MAP31/32

That said, I'd love to see some of these done more often.

I daresay that every theme you listed (sans 1334) has been done before, and that a decent amount of people have already turned them into maps.

This type of a city theme.

The matrix?

I will put the themes you all said into the list! :)
I know all the themes I listed exist in other I/Pwads, but that's the point: List every theme possible, it's like a small game for me.

Duke Nukem 2 actually. Thought it was a really cool backdrop when I saw it in the game.

Action Doom 2 has a subway

There's also a subway in Hacx and in Chex Quest 3. Too bad there isn't one in Harmony...

There's loads of different map themes in the archive but what about episode themes? In most megawads you are only likely to see episodes themed as space station, earth base, city and Hell.

Look for a 1994 megawad and you'll something... completely different: You'll see the 1994 theme or maybe even the1337 one (as found in jokewads)

I would describe those as failures to execute a convincing theme - either purposely or not. Themeless episodes.

I was Planning on making an Arena Fighting Base Wad but then I just realized it would be like a deathmatch with monsters.


Nice idea, I should put "Arena" to the list!

Hey thanks for the Lovecraft themed wad suggestions guys! I've downloaded them and I am going to give them a try.

Since when does duke nukem counts as a theme?



that would be real world / modern city, but the build engine is better suited for this.

I have a question about one of the Lovecraft themed wads, speciically Beyond Kadath. The music that plays during the level, where is that from exactly? I've heard it in wads and various media.
