1. I map for Brutal Doom with custom Realm667 enemies and weapons added and call it a TC because I think its cool

2. I map for UDMF, feature creeping my levels so people don't call me out and say I could've made it in PrBoomsday3d+ risen compatible formats. I add a shit ton of scripting, dynamic lights, colored sectors, particle effects, ambient sounds with lackluster gameplay elements because i was too focused on making my map to appease the veteran mappers and newbies alike. I like to map with what is given to me and soemtimes add additional textures, though adding custom things ruin my probability of loading mods

3. I map for Doom in HeXen format, Despite that UDMF can do alot of the things easily meanwhile I have to do a ton of shit to achieve the same effect and even bother using ACS in a much more difficult format and I like ZDaemon. I like using Bridge things as well. Customizavble parameters without actions line ID's are a sin and ruined doom

4. I map for Boom/MBF, Using player dummy sectors for everything and calling it "scripted", scrolling floors, no jump or crouch, I must fake the 3D floor to keep port compatibility despite its shitty behaivor in multiplayer. This is the ultimate format because I hate mp4's and enjoy watching other do speed runs lol. ACS and 3D floors are what ruined doom

5. I map for limit removing/Vanilla, strictly enabling infinitely tall actors and disable jump/crouch for advanced ports. Scrolling floors are a sin, I use self referencing sectors when i could easily use a specific line action found in Boom. generalized actions are a sin and what ruined doom


At this point it isn't even difficulty settings, just saying sterotype shit that isnt even correct

1. The difficulty no one plays and neither will you.

2. Mapper probably didn't test this. Enemy count is the same as 4.

3. Wait, there's actually a normal difficulty? Enemy count is the same as 4.

4. The difficulty everyone plays out of pressure or to maintain their hardcore pride.

5. You're not going farther than a single map, let alone the first room.

Why did this thread suddenly get resurrected? No offense, but I feel it got stale after the first few responses. Other people managed to be much wittier than my list, anyhow.

Yes, indeed. My life is full of regrets. :P


Perhaps we can steer it in a more interesting direction:

That's just stupid community conventions that have been preventing proper use of skill levels in far too many mods.

That convention is there because it reflects the difficulty of the original two IWADs (I hardly count Final Doom as an official part of the series, cool as it is).


Honestly, you can't tell me that UV in Doom 1 at least is actually hard. Challenging, yes, but quite fair and doable so long as you maneuver around threats, make efficient use of items and ammo, etc, then it really is a walk in the park. It's like dancing, once you get the hang of it, the challenge is more in keeping your energy, attention and reflexes up to snuff, rather than the actions themselves being difficult.
