DUMP Episode 2: Dump Harder [RELEASED]

Recommended Posts



For 2016, I really want to better my mapping abilities and put out some good stuff. Two friends, Mystical and Gardevoir, said that a good experiment might be to try speedmapping. Just get the shit out of the mind and into the editor, stream-of-consciousness work. 4-6 hours, Zandro compatibility, vanilla monsters/weapons. DUMP 1 began and it was a success, bringing a whole bunch of me and my friends into ZDoom mapping and just churning things out.
Then another friend, AD_79, suggested I open it up to the public. I did, and the response was overwhelming. An unfathomable amount of people signed up for this, and we ended up with a grand total of 68 maps. A hub map, 64 normal maps, a secret map, a final map, and a Marathon map (of all things).

As before, we now present to you a small hub leading to a handful of different maps. Beat X amount of maps to unlock the exit, with X being a variable depending on the difficulty level (ITYTD only requires a handful of maps, Nightmare requires EVERY SINGLE MAP), and defeat the final boss to win.
Gameplay mods should be supported, though there's been trouble in Zandronum so it may be better to use them in ZDoom/GZDoom. Pistol start is enforced, and monsters are vanilla (except for the Final Boss).

As before, the primary purpose of this project is to have a way for all of the newbies to try and push over that initial hump together, to MAKE something. It's the usual pile of quality you'll expect from a gigawad of MyFirstZDoomMap.wad, but it was fun to band together to make shit.
Again, as before, please feel free to point out any issues, troubles, errors, imbalances, and etc about the maps. Don't feel the need to sugarcoat, give it to us straight--none of us are pro-tier mappers. We can't improve if we don't know what's wrong.

FUCKIN' HELL THAT'S KEEN AS CAN BE
THANKS, WEBSITE!

(Also thanks to AD_79 for convincing me to get off my ass to make a post)


SO WHAT'S THIS?:
=====================
The first DUMP was pretty cool.
The Doom Upstart Mapping Project (or DUMP because we are professionals) is a project spearheaded by one goal: Learn how2map by JUST FUCKING DO IT.
but sir that isn't proper grammaI DON'T GIVE A SIIIIINGLE SHIIIIIT
It's a circle for newbies to try their hand at mapping, it's a way for rookies to try and polish their skills and grind out the usual "gotta get better by doing it!", it's a way for veterans to get out of their comfort zone and try something different, it's a way for people who've wanted to mod but felt too shy about joining something to have a project they can point to and say "I made something".

The rules are simple: Make a ZDoom speedmap. No, seriously, just do it. Open up GZDoom Builder, draw shapes, connect them together, slap in enemies and weapons, BAM, you have a map.

EDIT:
<wildweasel> You do say "speedmap" in the thread though
<wildweasel> is there any formal time limit?
<wildweasel> or does "speedmap" pretty much just mean "go with the flow, make some rooms, don't bother detailing them if you don't know what to do"?
<TerminusEst13> Yeah, pretty much that.


Well unless you're BORING and want technical specifications, in which case:
- Bare minimum of compatibility is Zandronum 2.1.2 in software mode. While this really isn't much of a limitation, locked linedefs in UDMF have been known to trip people up. (Hint: Use Script Locked Execute to bypass this, or if you don't know how to use it, don't worry and use your locked linedefs like normal, I'll patch it up in the "polish" phase)
- New textures are allowed, just be mindful they don't clash with existing filenames. That'll be embarrassing!
- No new weapons, no new enemies. Compatibility with gameplay mods/enemy mods is important. The only exception will be the final map for a dramatic final battle, and even then I'll be handling that. MAYBE for the secret map. MAYBE.
- Jumping and crouching WILL be allowed in the maps. It's a ZDoom-based mapset. Pretty straightforward, here.
- Don't go hog-wild and try to create Phocas 2 in a week. Seriously, don't. Start small. Start simple. Polish it up. Fine-tune it. Tweak it. Then sit on it. Then come back to it and tweak it a little more. You'll be amazed at how fast time flies.
- Pistol start will be enforced, so don't make a map expecting the player to have a BFG loadout.
- Be open to criticism and feedback. Nobody here is a professional. Very few people are actually good. Your map will probably have flaws, errors, and things that need tweak.
- Music needs to be either module music or MIDI music, module music preferred. Let's not bloat with ~*~FILESIZE~*~. If you don't know where to pick up module music, head to http://modarchive.org/ and hit "Random Song" a lot or go to http://snesmusic.org/ and pick your favorite Super Nintendo song. There's some good shit there. Promise. Or feel free to leave it to me if you don't care or don't have any ideas.
- As above, be open to someone else tweaking your map. Being the project lead, I'm going to need to make some changes to things in order to make things work. I'm gonna rub my little hands all over your baby. Ohhhh yessssss. That's a niiiice baby. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.
- If you make, like, a 1x1 box, a gauntlet of zombiemen, or some kind of super-shitty nothing-but-a-corridor-and-20-cyberdemons, I'm not gonna include your map. I'm still exercising a modicum of quality control. Put some effort into your fucking map.
- IF YOU USE EXTERNAL RESOURCES, PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF WHERE THEY'RE FROM AND WHO DID THEM.


SCHEDULE LAYOUT:
=====================
Week 1 (March 1-8): Preparation. Use this time to think of your layout, use this time to gather texture/sounds, draw a picture in MSPaint, etc.
Week 2 (March 9-16): MAKE YOUR FUCKING MAP. You get a whole week to make it. You can be a traditional speedmapper and blitz the entire thing out in like six hours, or you can take your time and lay it out room by room. Either way, get it done by the 16th. Actually, get it done by the 14th, and use the extra two days to sit on it.
Week 3 (March 17-24): Compilation and criticism. I'll take a couple days to compile everyone's maps into a single build and throw it at everyone. Everyone plays through it and offers feedback on everyone else's map. Feedback is mandatory, citizen. People fix up their maps according to the feedback.
Week 4 (March 25-31): Release and relaxation. Congratulations, you made a map!


INTERESTED PEOPLES:
=====================
(Do not take this as a confirmed list of "everyone in this list is going to give a map/needs to map". I'll be surprised if, like, 5 maps come in)

BUT WHAT IF I WANT TO CHAT?:
=====================
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh well I mean, there's not much to talk about. Just make your fucking map, mate.
If you have questions, though, you can hit me up on IRC. My "main" chat room is #anakeion on Zandronum IRC, but I also hang in #doomtwid on OFTC and #ZDoom on Espernet.
Or #pso2proxygchat on BadnikNET but I'm pretty sure they'll get pissy if we hijack that room for Doomtalk purposes.
If you wanna hit me on Skype, I'm TerminusEst13. (What a shock)
If you wanna hit me on Steam, I'm TerminusEst13. (What a shock mk 2)


WAIT YOU CAN'T MAKE A PROJECT POST WITHOUT A SCREENSHOT!:

Sure I'll give it a go. Haven't done many maps before and they've all been Boom ones so don't expect much ZDoom stuff. I'll have to get over my love of waist-high impassable walls.

It's the 8th! And we are a go, ladies and gentlemen!

I hope you've been using this time period to great effect--all prepared, motivated, and got ideas? Excellent! Time to start getting to work!
Whether you start blitzing through your map with a fury or just prod at it a bit in order to get it done a step at a time, I hope all of you do your best and work your hardest in order to make something.
It's not going to be easy! There's going to be moments where you say "Ugh this is just so boring", but keep going! There's going to be moments where you say "I don't know what to do next", but keep going! There's going to be moments where you say "I can't make anything interesting, other people are making much better stuff", but keep going!

Mapping is hard, but it's also incredibly rewarding. It's quite literally sculpting a world, with only your own hands and mind! Also a map tool of choice.

...I'm talking a big game, but to be honest I'm overwhelmed by the amount of response. Over 70 people are interested in participating? Bloody hell! I'm staggered by the incredible feedback this has received. I kind of just started this to be selfish and have buddies to learn to map with, y'know? But this has really blown up, and I'm sincerely thankful for the support everyone has shown.

Not gonna lie, though. This is gonna make the compiling-and-feedback stage a little difficult. But I guess I'll jump that hurdle when we come to it, eh?

Start mapping, mates. And have fun.

Yeah!

...Make sure you save at regular intervals too... I mapped out a lot and my DB shut down without saving... arrgh...

Welp, here you go. Made within the past 5 days or so with a day of just sitting around and trying to get doors to work, I present to you "Blood Lake Recreational Facility". I'm overall proud of it as a first wad, and after looking at other people's "first wads", I'm glad I didn't bomb it. Music is added in SLADE, but I have also included the file in the archive as I'm sure in compilation it will have to be switched around. Hopefully you enjoy this map as much as I did making it. I'm open to tweaking and bugfixes as I'm sure there's tons of odds and ends just waiting to be torn into.


So yeah. Play it. I'll give you a cookie.

I'm on the verge of finishing an entry. It'll be here tomorrow, whether or not I complete the second half of the finale. It's still a hell of a lot more interesting than the first exit-able map I made (not released on DW).

It's done. Skills 3 and 4 are all set. Lower shouldn't be necessary. I'm already scraping final doom's (non-secret level) difficulty on skill 3. Who plays PWADs before those anyway?

If the map is really early in the running order, I recommend adding a death exit due to all the plasma the player finishes with. The finale's difficult enough without scrounging for ammo, so I left it alone. Pistol start intended, per instructions. A bit of ammo for carryovers is built in. Chocolate Doom doesn't like the way I did the teleports. Boom and ZDoom ports look fine. That includes Zandronum's software mode.

EDIT: Fixed version is up now. See my post below this one for details.

There it was, just like Old Faithful, the eternal fountain of filth...
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8xWmOI7IYl3cEpUN3V1c2JzeFk/view?usp=sharing

Due to time zone differences and work I don't have the final 6 hours or whatever it is. So I ran out of time to add in difficulty levels. I'll do them in about 12 hours if that's not against the rules.

Tested in ZDoom, not Zandronum, but I don't think there's anything that will break in that. It's in Doom in Hexen format.

My playtests have been UV-Speed runs from a pistol start, not UV-Max runs. There should be enough ammo to complete it in UV-Max (with some backtracking possibly) but the health balance may be quite tight. UV-Speed runners will probably finish with a hell of a lot of rockets though.

It's also missing a custom sky I wanted because I couldn't figure out how to add one and tutorials weren't working. Probably I'm just thick.

Music is "Plutocrat" by Bucket from the unofficial Plutonia soundtrack.

And time.

Well, probably not time for some people. Some people probably need a little bit of extra time to tweak their and make a few last-minute changes.
Regardless, now we're entering the next phase. I'm going to take a couple days to compile the build, put everything together, have the hub connect to everything, make a final boss battle, and then release a test build for everyone to play with. Everyone should be willing to give it a run, run through several levels, and write down their thoughts and feedback. Obviously, I don't expect everyone to play through all 46 fucking maps, but even just a couple lines of "I liked this and this" or "I didn't like this or this" would be fantastic.

If you haven't submitted yet and are still working, don't panic.
I've said before I'm not really a stickler for time; the emphasis on this project is to JUST DO IT, rather than adhering to a specific schedule. Compiling a test build together is going to take a bit of time, after all.
If you need a couple more hours to polish things up, sure, go right ahead. If you need a couple more days, well, all right, just don't go overboard. If you're gonna need a week, yeah, no, that ain't happening.

But congratulations to all 46 contributors and mappers who have come together to make DUMP 2 a reality. Community projects are a bit of a crapshoot in that only a fraction of people who say they're going to do things will actually do anything, but DUMP 2 blew this out of the water--almost 2/3rds of the sign-ups have submitted their maps! Bloody hell!

Congratulations to everyone.

If you have any quote you want to display on the opening of your map, a la DUMP 1, now's the time to say it. Otherwise I'll make something up.

Then let me commemorate "probably not time for some people" with a new version of Fountain of Filth that fixes a lot of shit that occurs when you work too late into the night. Thanks to the people who bugtested it.

Same link as before: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8xWmOI7IYl3cEpUN3V1c2JzeFk/view?usp=sharing

EDIT: I lied. One more small change to increase the tension at the end. Now I'm done. Same link as above.

Now featuring:
-Working difficulty levels including UV + Co-Op
-No skybox glitching
-A custom sky
-Teleporters that work in Zandybambalam as well as ZDoom
-Some changed secrets
-A pain elemental that has lost his very close and personal relationship with a wall
-Switches that actually animate like they're meant to
-A par time (based on my HMP-Speed run)

I'd like the intro quote to be:
There it was, just like Old Faithful: the eternal Fountain of Filth!

UPDATE! I've gotten some feedback since the first release.

Changes:
-Brighter lighting. It was too dark in software mode.

-Glitched floor in software mode leading into/out of the secret fixed!

-Archviles now descend in chocolate doom thanks to no longer having their heads stuck in the ceiling.

-Texture oversights corrected.

-more plasma added to the throne room's side corridors.

Outstanding issues: (if I knew how to fix them, it'd be done.)
-One stubborn revenant that should appear in the room with the lava vein refuses to walk through his teleporter in chocolate doom. In other ports, it works.

-A handful of monsters don't go through their warps during the SSG ambush in any port. This means it's impossible to get 100% kills. My playtests come out to around 96%.

Quote: If you struggle at the end, remember to practice! Practice is good for you! Thanks Danne.

Once I get back from school, I'll adjust the map as I know of a texture bug I have, as well as a room I've been meaning to add upon reflection. So.... Quote will be:

"Brought to you by 3 AM coffee breaks and constant screen-staring in Doombuilder."

I got a map almost done. I had a setback where I forgot to save periodically, lost a full day's work.

About functionally finished, got to add monsters though. Will post tommorow after school.

I like this idea. It's good to see NOVA inspiring other newbie mapping projects to step forward!
