Post Your Doom Picture (Part 2)

I keep reading about "fake contrast"... what do you mean, in other technical terms: "Raycasting" (darkening in the distance), as introduced already in "Blake Stone"?

I'm sorry but this looks comical to me because Doom already has candles which are a lot smaller, so those are just weird.

Hey, it's not supposed to be realistic. :P There are smaller candles in the same style, but I like the big ones. Besides, the Doom candles hardly look like candles anyway.

I'd have thought the fact that half of them are upside-down would have given that away!

I like this room.


Diggin it, but I think I'd like it even better without the upside down ones, actually.

So, new thread...guess I'll have to post a pic of an old map then. Still working on this piece of shit:

Great color scheme, there, Darkreaver. Goes great with the sky.

Fiery red/black will eternally have its proponents, surely, but the colder end of the color spectrum has always appealed more to me.

The sign could have looked much better if the SHAWN texture was vertically aligned with floor and ceiling - I mean, the "darkest" part at the top, the "brightest" part in the middle, then again the "darkest" part at the bottom.

Thanks for the feedback! That was just a test, but I was developing a map and I stopped making it.

Just gave myself a headache trying to figure out how to use the 'change to brightest/darkest' lines with sectors with gradient lighting - the reason being I want to draw the player's attention to small corner of a big room, since a small 'eye' switch emerges there, and I don't want them to miss it, so I thought I'd have the lights go from off to on.
Seems to work okay (link as the gif is a bit big).

Strange concept, but it seems awesome :D

There are many nice screens on the new thread :>

I post too a little screen x)

^That room looks really cool. All I'll say is that the screenshot begs to be in at least a slightly higher resolution. ;)

@franckFRAG That color scheme is absolutely sublime. The low resolution really brings the architecture to life (and probably cuts down on filesize, too). @RNGPSY Didn't Bioshock Infinite have such things? Oh, and.

Heh. But seriously: What?

The screenshots are nice, all of them recently posted. FranckFRAG's love for red+black and extraordinary textures is a known fact. :)

I've said this many times I think but imo: lower resolution makes the fact that the textures and sprites are just pieces of cardboard a lot less noticeable. Less actual details = more details in your head, etc.

Makes sense. Lower resolution also makes bad texturing more forgivable, that's a known fact to me. Alright.

I find that double Vanilla resolution is pretty good. As, although it doesn't have quite as strong an effect, Windows 7 fucking hates anything lower. Like I accidentally hit the windows key and can't even move the damn mouse. The I gotta open up Task Manager, navigate with the keyboard, and close GZDoom. I hate it.

I ran out of ideas so here are shots of random WIP crap that I don't even know how I made:
