Here's MAP06 complete! Some texturing may still change! The TITLEPIC may also change, I think it still needs a bit of work!

Dear lord, your attention to detail and penchant for doom cute is too much. Keep spoiling us please ^_^

It is a little freeing to mostly focus on shape and lighting.  I think I've used 6 or so textures and 6 flats total. 

- snup!

 

It's great practice for certain! And honestly you have a great balance between contrasts imo with what you've limited yourself to. It doesn't melt together into a mess of one colour. Good job :)

I love that carpet texture. Looks great! Kick-ass visuals as usual!

Here's MAP07 complete! A very vertical map involving a careful jump to the central raised flag platform.

 

There are numerous chutes and passageways to reach the flags! Lots of dropdown areas should lead to some fun ambushes hopefully, once I run this through a thorough play test!

Onto MAP08! I already have some ideas for it!

 

Nearly halfway done this new pack!

 

 

:D

I hope that those blue and red textures are scrolling around...

A good amount of them, but not too much.

 

I didn't want to make things too visually 'busy'

Yes. If you want everyone to play your WAD, you need to keep things simple...

I've been messing around w/ an 'effect' sort of new to me!

 

This is a bit of a video test for a 'bleeding wound' using super-acute slopes paired w/ bloodfalls textures.

 

I think this would only be convincing as an 'effect' from a far distance - something similar has definitely been made prior to this. Putting this in an inaccessible distant area would look great, I believe!

 

I'm busy thinking up many different variations:

 

 

BLEEDING WOUND VIDEO:

 

 

I've done a couple static variations, too:

 

CLIFFSIDE CAVE MOUTH (w/ SOLID BLACK INSIDE) [To be viewed from distance:

IZZeVZy.png

 

TORN TREE BARK (FROM CORRECT DISTANCE):

yH1XuSO.png

 

The reason a decent distance is needed is that any texture being used on a slope that acute will look terrible up close, it will be egregiously stretched out vertically - the further the distance, the more natural things appear.

 

I know a similar thing has obviously been done before - I intend to only use the above 3 'effects' in decorative only areas. A distant cliffside out in a harbor, a series of huge trees off in the distance, a bleeding organic wall up far away from the play area, etc.

The bleeding wound will only likely be useful in a hell map - I intend on trying to make one today!

Oh! Also: please ignore the slight flickering on the right of the wound in the video - that's only there because I must have partially lowered an acute slope into another. As I refine this more, I'm sure it will look more believable!

 

Yeah! Nothing too novel or new, but I haven't really seen this being used too much, I'm sure I can figure out how to use it in a map nicely. I at least cannot think of any deathmatch content that does this, but I could be wrong.

 

This would likely only work in GZ: D2 in Hexen, or UDMF of some variety, I believe.

Aside from adding more trees in the jungle, I started working on one of the abandoned villages in the map. The tent on the right side of the picture is supposed to basically introduce the silent teleport method that I used a lot in my previous mapset, Battle for Toad Hall 20XX. There's supposed to be another village further along in the map. I also added in another beach area off to the side of the village. It just has a few more goodies. I'm not entirely sure what I'll add between the large village ruins and the end of the map, which I already have in mind on what I'll be making, which will essentially be the entrance to a large cave, which is basically where the Demons came from.

 

Also, just for shits and giggles here are two images of the very first "jungle" map I made back in 2011 and also the last forest I made, which was in the previously mentioned mapset, Battle for Toad Hall 20XX.

 

Spoiler

My first jungle map, circa 2011. It was made in WadAuthor. It was super dark and the "trees" texture was from some freeware platformer sprites pack that I had copy-pasted some tree sprites to make the trees texture.

I had to use Lite-Amp goggles to fully showcase the horror show that is my first Jungle map.

Battle for Toad Hall 20XX (MAP04). Not bad considering it's only using default textures, at least for the trees you can walk up to, but OTEX really does help out in making a more believable forest/jungle.

Hah, it's great seeing these kinds of progression images. You've really developed your skills over the years ^_^ Thanks for sharing! It's kinda life-affirming in a way, and reminds me that if something I made sucks in my eyes, it's a process and will get better if I keep at it :)

It's cool that I'm not the only one working on Jungle themed stuff. Excited to see where yours goes. Hopefully I'll have more time to work on mine here soon. I mostly have gathered resources and imported some sprites from NAM and Blood so far.

UNNAMED NEW DEATHMATCH PROJECT: MAP01: 'Battlefield Boulevard':

 

I've decided to make a 3 map or so deathmatch project set in a war-torn environment.

 

All I have so far are this fireblu hovertank, and this military gun cabinet holding the most complex 3D floor work I've ever done.

 

Those machine guns have: a trigger, sights, barrel, butt, hollow end you can look down (even though you'd never be able to), magazine, trigger guard, front and rear grips, etc.

 

Here is a picture of the hovertank, a picture of the gun cabinet w/ the newly made 3D floor guns stocked inside it, and a final picture looking down the sights of the machine gun.

 

Of course, there is always tweaking to be done still, but I think this map is off to a good start!:

The gun took me about 4 hours to make - was very hard to wrap my head around, but I think they look cool when paired w/ the traditional Doom 2 ammunition items.

I was basically reinvigorated into making my jungle map by listening to these two songs from Massmouth 2 lol. I really want to use the second song I linked for it, but I feel like the first song matches the current map more.
