Doom years resolutions.

Recommended Posts

Your new years resolution concerning Doom. Personal projects, habits, Doom ports you never finished, WADs you have in a list to play, whatever else.

 

mine:

1) Stop savespamming (maybe assign the save key to something else I will not use out of habit)

2) Detox from Brutal Doom

3) Start some new series of youtube videos with let's blind play random WADs or other challenges, so I'd rather not savespam there and only present them without extra mods.  So 1 and 2 come handy.

4) Might want to get back hacking with the 3DO Doom code base at some point.

5) Last year I wanted to make a megawad but didn't even started. Not sure I'll have time this year, other priorities.

1) Stop savescumming.

2) "Git gud" so to speak. As in, be able to beat Doom 2 on Nightmare like everyone else lol.

3) Play more community WADs.

my resolution is to get a vanilla community project going where both adventure mappers and slaughter mappers are welcome

I worry I don't really have the reputation to start it though :P whenever I've joined other community projects I've run out of steam real quick

For once I actually managed to keep my resolutions from last year:

On 12/19/2016 at 7:21 PM, Eris Falling said:

Maybe I'll make another map. And some midis

1.8 maps (Mayhem17 MAP08, ErisTNT MAP01)

27 MIDIs (13x Panophobia, 6x Rebirth MIDI Pack, 4x Standalone, 3x The Given, 1x Maskim Xul) + the release of Revilution with several ancient works.

 

So I think - as far as contributions to this community goes - this has been my best year since I joined. For next year I just hope to continue that, but it would be nice to get quicker and better at mapping too. Maybe actually play Doom a bit more often as well.

Lofty goals here!

Nightmare? That would make you well and truly a pro Doomer, my friend. I can't even come close to beating it on Nightmare!

Make and release a mapset, and I could probably change the way I make maps in a way that I don't lose interest that easily.

In a sense I have already had one where I have finally been playing Doom again after a long hiatus, but more specifically with multiplayer.

2) Stop losing interest in my maps so damn fast.

I would like to see projects like Back to Saturn X E3, TPH and Devilution get released this year hopefully. 

Maybe participate in a small community project since I have so many unused layout laying around with no real purpose. 

Maybe try and give some people help in the Editing section, or doing WAD reviews although I'm not native English speaker.

My resolution is to learn to stop running INTO projectiles. I have a weird, nasty habit whenever I see a rocket to just plant my face right in front of it. That and for once play a proper, singleplayer game of Doom from start to finish, rather than hosting a coop game for a little bit. Maybe even unbind F6 entirely while I'm at it, and disable autosaves so I play it legacy-style. No weapon return on death!

 

EDIT: Maybe even make a map or two later on. I've been fiddling around in Doombuilder lately.

I only have 2 resolutions:

 

1; stop rushing into the middle of monster hordes all the time, especially in TNS

and 2; actually put effort into projects instead of crying over being shit at mapping. Maybe resume working on Destination Aquarius while I'm at it.

I barely got through most of Doom II on Nightmare with the Powerslave mod, which gives you much more powerful than vanilla weapons.

I only have one and that's to be more active in Doom multiplayer. I dunno why I stopped to begin with when I had a blast and didn't encounter the typical bullshit found in newer multiplayer games.
