Final Doom The Way id Did

I'm going to remake the OP with the map links in like a GoogleDoc or something way more manageable than just the first post FYI. So if you don't see a link there don't worry. I grab everything I see posted in the thread.

Demo (skill 4): http://www.mediafire.com/?ra90joyia6u7h5x

 

In my opinion, this map suffers from overuse of barons of hell (mainly these ones) and hell knights. For example, these two barons which teleport when one picks up the blue key add nothing but wasting time and valuable shells without being too threatening.

Can anyone please check my map out please. I would to improve on it further by adding a red key area on it if necessary.

I have tested this one, on Chocolate Doom. There are certain steps which suffer from tutti frutti and both health / armor are extremely scarce. Also, it is extremely trivial to find the secret exit. The path to the secret exit offers little to no challenge and, in my opinion, this path should be replaced with a more interesting, appealing and challenging one.

Sure, I think it's possible. I think when I did that 2 years ago, I was remembering how easy it was to find the secret in TNT. Also, how can I avoid tutti frutti?

By un-lowering the texture you used, or just make the texture you used at the 0.0 offsets...

Hypocaust - André Arsenault style.
Hell Hath Fury - Jimmy Sieben style.

 

Hypocaust exhibits certain little zones which could induce visplane overflows, according to Visplane Explorer. They are in the northern part of sector #26.

 

Hell Hath Fury has drawseg overflows in the very starting zone (sector #214); and visplane overflows which will crash Chocolate Doom in the balcony which contains one red skull key (sector #136).

What resource WAD is required in order to run these maps? It seems both maps use custom flats and patches, not only tnt.wad resources (there are lots of HOMs when they are loaded, with tnt.wad as IWAD). As last resource, I guess these maps could be retextured to use only tnt.wad resources.

They were made for TNT: Revilution, so probably check that for the resources.

Solved mystery, I confirm that using tntr.wad as first additional PWAD did the trick. Well, at least they are playable à la Master Levels (never better said).

Well, they have certain obvious zdoomisms (The Pitchfork), zero-length reject lumps (both maps) and tutti-frutti artifacts (both maps). Just at the very start, The Pitchfork has platforms with chaingunners and one revenant which won’t lower. The latter because it uses some linedef specific of ZDoom ports, the former has to do with z-clippings of these chaingunners (with -nomonsters these platforms will lower in vanilla / PrBoom+ with -complevel 4). Moreover both maps have resources from tntr.wad, which grants permissions to reuse its resources, and these resources overwrite the ones from tnt.wad such as certain door textures. Therefore, these maps don’t seem effortlessly salvageable at first sight. Perhaps, for a hypothetical MLTWiD project.

MAP20 In the style of Dean Johnson.

 

Good map, I have liked it. It’s large and long and focuses on atmosphere and exploration. Also, on ammo management, because one will run out of ammo easily just for exploring the map in the wrong order. Now, the feedback. I cannot post a demo because I cannot complete safely, without saves, this map while getting 100% / 100% / 100% at the tally screen.


There are drawseg overflows. For example, they are noticeable if one takes a peek from sector #86.


The initial regular shotgun should be replaced with a super shotgun (the player will get anyway a regular shotgun from any dead shotgun zombie). There are many mid-tiers (including three arch-viles and that ambush by two revenants), and dealing with mid-tiers at close range with just a regular shotgun isn’t my concept of fun.


Lava and slime should inflict only 10% damage/s and 5% damage/s, respectively. 20% damage/s seems excessive and overkill for zones which will be visited by one player interested in getting all the goods. And that hidden catwalk (sector #15) should offer one radiation suit. Otherwise, the player will have to sacrifice the heavy armour, some medikits and one soulsphere just to be able to get the backpack, some extra ammo and barely survive this onslaught.


The big catwalk has two non-functional teleporter pads (sectors #45 and #128), without tags.


There is one fast and narrow door with a pegging error on the door track (linedef #1419).


It is possible that the player gets trapped in these two lifts with imps (sectors #136 and #139), because they aren’t lowerable from inside. Also, there is one corner, between vertices #110 and #356, which can trap the player.


There are two demons of one monster cache which won’t be released, things #110 and #293.


One berserker pack to replace one of these medikits would be interesting.
