Forgot to add: yes the animations aren't working yet either but that'll be done with the decorations.

All things except for player starts. If this is a bit too limiting I can reconsider it but originally it was 256 monsters and that was a bit of a pointless restriction considering most average maps have that much anyway.

Sign me up. Glad there's that extra week - this upcoming week is already going to be pretty busy, but I plan on working on a layout (as well as other things) after this upcoming week.

Nice of Marcaek to invite us over for a Mayhem project, eh Doomworld?

 

Edit: Are you sure you mean 3840x3840 and not 4352x4352? The latter is 17 blocks of 256 map units, where-as the former is 15 blocks. Or are you specifically choosing 3840 because of a smaller map size?

Talking about the 3840x3840 map boundaries... is the playable area boundary (like in mayhem 2048) or is all the map boundary?

Playable area Walter. Measurements are entirely arbitrary to keep mapsize down.

Animation updates coming soon, didn't have the time to do decorations tonight but I figured I'd mention a lot of the resources came straight from https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/deathmatch/skulltag/mdm

 

If anyone needs any inspiration you might find it in here, just load it up in Zandronum and poke around the MDM## maps.

Truth be told I don't think that the current restriction is really needed, as I'm having a hard time imagining a map that'd be too sloggy within those boundaries and with monster count of 256. In case you disagree - 128 monsters still seems reasonable.

New resource, animations are in. Sprite decorations not yet. Still needs some key markers and more intuitive switches.

 

The palette is probably going to stay as is or close to the current state but I intended to use HIRES for the final version so that advanced ports can use truecolor textures. It's not 100% ideal but I can't guarantee timely palette editing and to be frank I don't want to lose my mind over it, would rather focus on other areas.

After a bit of consideration, I've decided that the size limitation is a bit excessive. I'm extending it to 5120x3840 and keeping the thing limit intact.

 

If anyone has opinions about this please share, if your maps fall within the old limit please keep working within that as having small maps are encouraged(you don't need to use the full alloted space to make a good map!)

Here, have a shitty speedmap:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/gtcd1b7c8is836e/painfullyelitelyrustled.wad

Title: Painfully and Elitely Rustled

MIDI: Dungeon from Final Fantasy Legend III

Notes: Uses old limits 3840x3840, very marginal difficulty settings implemented and only 167 things. Made to be a hard and annoying setpiece hub that I did in literally a day. Only SG/RL/PG combat too. Do what you want with it.

 

BTW is there a gray version of these wall textures? preferably the ones I used for the steps and ceiling. The green really clashes with the rest of the map and I was looking for some gray textures here.

You can make edits to existing textures if you want.

Some new stuff: 3MIDCLD is a cloudy midtexture, SKYZAP is an animated thunderstorm sky, a few doors, and a bunch of fences and such.

 

HP\Armor bonuses have tenatively been replaced with color-coded coins. The Pool of brains is now a Donut Lift sprite, which may or may not work out we'll see what happens.

Be careful using textures that aren't a power of 2. I figured out why my map was crashing and it was using 3MIDCLD which was 512x232. (actually upon further testing, the reason prboom was crashing was because it was a PNG)

 

I'm gonna go ahead and throw this here. It adds some new sprite replacements.

Also throwing a sheet up for textures, sprites, etc.

Also, reuploaded my map as mostly done. No ideas for music or a name yet.

Count me in! Mapping with this texture pack will help influence simplistic geometry and promote good gameplay / layouts as a focus. :) You said we can make recolours - if we do indeed do this, should we adhere to a specific naming convention? If I was to make use of custom textures I'd prefer to have them named correctly to save having to replace them at a later date. :)

 

EDIT: Not only do I feel a few recolours would be helpful, I feel rescaling some textures would help greatly, so we can have smaller-scale (or larger scale) versions of various textures. 1XSTONE1 I wish had a 16x16 block version, for example.

 

EDIT 2: Quick progress! :)

EDIT 3: What about player starts, do they count in the limitation?

All edits are welcome, I'd prefer them to be prefixed with 2 or 3 characters to separate them (like DF_XXXXX) or to use the existing prefixes in the OP.

 

Player starts are exempt from the limit. New resource update coming soon. Now!
