Confinement Community Project. (Project Released!) (Boom Compatible!)

As it currently stands, I'd prefer people to just build within the restrictions, to allow them a bit more creativity. It would add a bit of variance into the wad as well, with things being different sizes.

@Bonfac you have to add/import them to your map. if you set it as a base resource, something weird will happen.

If you would like, just add it as a resource in doom builder. I will be adding it to the wad once its finished, but for the time being I'll just be sure to load it with the texture wad.

I wanna do it! I've always wanted to make a full WAD, so I guess this will get me going...

I tested the 2 maps for now and this is the result (btw, I played in UV for both maps):

 

@Bonfac

  • The map is excellent for map 01, simple and not hard.
  • The layout is pretty straight-forward, go for keys and search for exit with some resistance.
  • There are notorious misalignment, horizontal and vertical but that can be fixable in no time and it has no impact in gameplay.
  • Overall, it's a nice beginning for this megawad. You nailed it.

@Pinchy

  • This map was fairly hard. I cleared the map in the second try, just to get an idea.
  • The teleport action in both sides of the map was a nice touch. It's also a strategical way of avoiding some monster traps.
  • The secret helped me a lot. Some health/armor items and the rocket box were necessary for the last part, especially for the archvile/chaingunner combo. 
  • I used the chainsaw a lot too for the corner trap. It kept the cacos and pinkys at bay while the revenant was firing at me and also I did some infighting.
  • Overall, it's a good map where the player must be alert at all times. Fortunately you put some barrels to the arachnotron which was a good idea. Solid map.

Where exactly?

The lift where it take you to the red key and where the ambushes are (the lone HK and the one before the blue door where the HK and the BoH is). And that's it.

 

Time to sleep for me...

If you would like Bonfac I can fix up any misalligned textures for you, but you're more than welcome to do it yourself, or even leave it as it is if thats intended.

wip shot, kinda looks messy from this angle, not sure what to do with the silver area.

I think music should be MIDI format as usual(unless someone sacrifes their music for project ;) ) . I read first post and thought that instantly. Anyway, I'm going to start draw map and reach my own goals today.

I pretty much burned myself out on Confinement 256 so I'll be passing on contributing for this one. I look forward to playing it very much though!

 

Just had one thought though reading this thread:

so please dont let two or three people wanting to map in zdoom format ruin it for everybody (unless you get like 20 people wanting to map for zdoom, then go for it i guess)

 

I know GZDoom gets a bad rap around here, but honestly I am so glad we used it for Confinement 256. We got some infinitely more interesting maps thanks to it's features than we would have just sticking to plain old Boom.

There's cacodemons in the FIREBLU but unfortunately the player can fall into their pits. Hm. Must find a workaround.

@SArais Boom doesnt have a block players tag like UDMF, yeah? I'm not sure what to suggest, but its looking fantastic.

what are the advantages of Boom? I've never even heard of it til now

Boom is very similar to vanillia doom. it has a few extra features, but nothing as numerous as zdoom and gzdoom formats. Boom is generally prefered by a lot of people due to how close it plays to vanillia.

The thing is that the player should be able to cross freely over these.

 

I'll see what I can figure out. Push comes to shove I'll just do a 1 unit box around them and raise a thing so player doesnt' just bumble into them.

Repopulation is a good device, as is transformation

Just look at Map26 of Going Down. While not 1024in size, it certainly is a good example of how a map can drastically transform.
