Doomworld Omega Project 2018

Guys, since probably scifista vanished from these forums (he's not around here from September), you could always try post your map there, if you want to:

The potential problem with doing that for some of the contributors here are the key rules of ToD's project:

  • Stock textures, flats, monsters, sounds, etc. only
  • No ZDoom
  • You have to be able to beat your map on UV without saves

Some contributors here may run afoul of those rules and may have to do work to get their map in a condition to submit to that project.

 

ToD has suggested that next year's DMP will revert to the previous years' rules, so those maps may fit in DMP 2019, assuming ToD sticks to that idea.

I will be disappointed if this project is left to rot, quite frankly.

 

But there is always the option to release your map standalone to idgames, or hope for the best with DMP2019.

 

Still no activity from @scifista42 since September 24. Highly unusual. Hope he is okay.

I did started something for this but gave up after lack of will/inspiration. I guess I'll pick it up again for the next year Mega Project if custom textures are allowed again, or if there's another Omega Project.

Yeah, I'll probably wait for next year's Doomworld Mega Project.

Me: Sees this thread, thinks 'Oh, nice, I can make something for this!"

Me about 30 seconds later: sees deadline is in 25 days, thinking 'Ehh, doable'

Me about 30 seconds after that: sees @Bridgeburner56 is in the project, thinking 'no fucking way I can make something even remotely good'

@Novaseer not gonna lie, I'd kind of forgotten about this *oops* and if the deadline is 25 days there's 0 chance of me making a map :/ I have a rather full plate at the moment 

 

But it looks like this is a dead horse anyway?

Fair enough. Yeah, it's probably best to wait it out and see if DWMP 2019 revokes the 'no ZDoom' rule so I (and I guess by extension you, since a lot of your maps I've seen are most likely impossible without) can actually make something.

After deadline, if @scifista42 will not appear, then one of us make new post where he/she compile the submitted maps...

That could be a very good idea.

That's sound like indeed good idea.

Just bumping this thread to remind people that the project deadline draws near. Also, to remind the project OP of current progress. 

 

If a titlepic has not already been created here's one I just threw together. Feel free to use/ not use it.

The deadline rapidly approaches. But there is still time if anyone would still like to contribute a map!

I'm pretty sure this is dead in the water :\

Just in case someone has an old version of my map, I am not using it for this project. I'm going to wait for next year's event.

The future of this project seems dubious, but on the off-chance that @scifista42 comes back or someone else takes up the slack, I'm posting my map.

 

Name: Locked Room Mystery
Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/m7087zxljxybrj1/LockedRoomMystery-final.wad/file
Engine: Boom
Music: "The Lair of Shial" (cblood6) from Blood
Description: The Colonel is dead; suicide seems dubious. Inspired somewhat by the opening of Death Wish for Blood's E1M5: Jigsaw.
Additional credits: All custom textures and flats come from cc4-tex, except for those with the prefix JUD.

Difficulty settings: no

Difficulty: Ultra-violence
Build time: 2 weeks
Tools used: Gzdoom builder, slade3
Resources: Doom 2 stock only

Jump/crouch: No

I am currently working on a level for this project. I will have to test it out so see what needs to be changed. This is what I have so far. The second room involves activating the switches to ultimately activate the exit and the crushers to crush the enemies so that you will not have to spend a lot of time strafing around to kill the cybers and the revenants.

Map name: Crushed to Death

Compatibility: Boom (+cl 17)

Tested in: GLBoom+

Jump/crouch: No

Difficulty settings: No

Build time: 2 days

Tools used: GZDoom Builder, Slade

Resources: Community Chest 4 team for the cc4-tex, Demonologist for the rocket, player, and teleporting sounds, Paul Debruyne (Skillsaw) for the Ancient Aliens sound effects, ID Software for Doom 3 sounds (cyberdemon's voice), Brett Harrel (Mechadon) for the pistol sounds

Music: "And So I Carry On..." by David Shaw.

Description: You start off in a room with hell knights and rockets to blast them with, followed by the fatsoes. The final room is the room with the cybers and revenants and your job is to activate all of the switches needed to activate the crushers before your invulnerability wears off. I included a demo along with the WAD to ensure that it is beatable. This level should take roughly 10 minutes.

I could assist in compiling but I would prefer that someone more experienced in running projects take the lead. Also, in moving forward would we like this to have a hub map or be a straight set of maps?

The way things are now, probably a straight set of maps. If someone does an Omega Project for next year, there will be plenty of more time for a hub map to be made.

Yeah, i had the same idea of voltcom9, actually i downloading every map from this project for this reason...

The hardest part i think it could be the texture compiling...

 

Anyway, i made a silly thing for this project! Happy Advent!

Tested in: prboom 2.5.1.4

Jump/crouch: No

Right now, there's 11 maps in this potential compilation with 3 days left to go. A couple people have volunteered to compile the maps after the deadline. The question becomes, how much time do we allow for @scifista42 to return?

 

We've seen other CP's where the project lead had supposedly left the community or vanished without a trace only to show up later and reclaim the project. Of course, those projects didn't really have set submission or release deadlines in the same way that this one does, but that's a different story. They also usually had set rules and controls, unlike the "make whatever you like" Omega project, but that's also a different story.

 

Assuming that something tragic hasn't happened (hopefully not--does anyone know?) or that he hasn't just decided to abandon Doom (that would surprise me greatly), how much time is appropriate for us to let these maps (and any more to come in the next few days) sit here untouched awaiting scifista's return to DW?

 

Perhaps I'm jumping the gun (like with the time zone discussion a few months ago), but people have already started to talk about, so I thought I'd put the question out there. I'm all for waiting for scifista to come back; it is his project. But I also don't want to lose maps from the compilation because people decide it's never going to be compiled.
