Water Treatment Plant [First Map]

Recommended Posts

Water Treatment Plant is a one-level mod for GZDoom. It's kinda hard (I think so).

I'm really excited for feedback, any kind of feedback would be appreciated!

Miscellaneous
-This is my first level on a FPS, I tried my best at balancing ammo/enemies while trying to keep it pretty fun.
-I intended the map to be kinda hard, idk if I was able to pull that off.
-I tested the map on GZdoom 2.1.0 and 2.3.2 (Please refrain from using 2.1 to play the map)
-Lightning is pretty dull, Ill try to improve that on my next project.
-There's a readme file with a bunch of extra info.

Edit: Let me know if this isn't the right place to post this or if there's any mistake with on this post.

That was fun, quite the adventure. Took me a good 30 minutes to beat, not counting time spent redoing parts because of deaths (of which there were two).

Impressive amount of work into detailing the environment, even if some areas felt a little cramped and clunky to move around in because of it.

Im glad you enjoyed it! It was sure fun learning how to make it.

Thanks a lot for the feedback, and yeah, some areas were super cramped, ill try and improve that on my next project. I guess I placed way too much effort on the detail and not enough into the gameplay.

from the pictures looks awesome!
Is pretty proffesional for being a first map!

Also, a question: you wrote that this is the first time you modded for a FPS, this made think: you modded other games genres? Like platforms, RPGs or some others genres?

Thank you so so much for the compliment! I guess I took inspiration from Winter's Fury, which is one of my all time favorite wads.

Back then, when I was 10 years old, I made maps for warcraft 3, which were pretty rubish, but still, I managed to learn a lot, and the community seemed to enjoy them, which really made me happy :D. I also made a few maps for C&C Generals, and Red Alert 2.

This looks really good for a first map, I'll have to give it a run later down the line due to a backed up map queue list. If you feel after sufficient testing and there is no major problems, go ahead and upload it to /idgames/.

Another question, why RAR and not ZIP or 7z?

Thanks dude! Ill try and upload it tonight.

And, regarding the RAR filetype, there's no particular reason at all, I just have winRAR installed. Are the other file types better than RAR?

Pretty impressive for a first map, has good detail and some cool ideas, though it's definitely a bit too cramped and claustrophobic in a lot of areas making it hard to navigate.

Yea, 7-zip ( http://www.7-zip.org ) is and you can also open RAR, ZIP (and make backward compat ZIPs) as well as 7z.

Which areas do you think are the most cramped? I'll see if I can make a few adjustments to fix that.

Overall, there are a lot of the rooms and hallways that have an uncomfortably low ceiling height and lots of tight corners in small rooms that are tough to move around, so everything just looked and felt weird to me. I don't even get claustrophobic but this map sure made me feel something. It wouldn't hurt to have larger rooms that are more open so the player's ability to move isn't impaired as much.

I don't think it's necessarily a design decision that should be changed in this instance and if you like it keep doing it, but also don't be afraid to experiment with more spacious rooms in the future. Keep mapping :)
