My Ultimate Doom Project

Recommended Posts

Sounds good! 

 

Don't be afraid to ask for help! One thing I've been wishing for more of are short episodes that are primarily solo endeavours with a few guest maps peppered in between. I think this ultimately makes for a better project than 9 maps in a row by one author. Ancient Aliens did something like this and I think it was good move. 

 

It's usually good to work on a few maps at once so you can switch back and forth at your leisure, but don't spread yourself too thin. I'm a busy guy too and the biggest challenge with making maps is actually finishing them. I would recommend leaving at least a couple spots open in case you feel you're going to need some help completing it. Don't leave us hanging on an ambitious announcement that never delivers!

 

I love E4 so if you think you want an extra map at some point, I'll be happy to help :)

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing 9 maps from an author who hasn't mapped in a long time. Not sure if Cadman is going for a full-replacement or a handful of maps, either way I'm curious to see what it'll be like.

I am going for a full replacement, not just a handful of maps.  I've already started E4M2 and E4M3 as well.  Just a little update there, thanks everyone!  BTW...don't worry, I will deliver on this...no "ambitious" announcement here.  :)

Okay, E4M1 is pretty complete...play testing extensively at the moment.  Checking monster placement, ammo levels, light levels, switches, triggers, texture alignments and the usual stuff.  When I get to a point of the testing I will post a screenshot here and there of the completed map.  E4M2 and E4M3 are each about a quarter of the way done.  Thank you everyone!

Okay, putting a little more detail in E4M1...it seems to play well.  Fairly small to just about medium in size.  I have a few issues with monster placement that I'm resolving.  I found a deathtrap you can fall into and not get out...not good.  Completely overlooked it and it has been fixed.  I have also started on E4M9 (secret level), that's the magic word...just started!  Again, be patient....it'll get there.  Thanks everyone!

E4M1 is now complete!  E4M2 is around 40-50% complete.  E4M3 is still hanging around 25%, and E4M9 is around 10-15% complete.  I'm not going to start anymore maps until I complete these.  Just wanted to keep the Doom Community updated.  There is a possibility that I may request assistance from good mappers to assist with E4M4, E4M5, E4M6, E4M7 and E4M8.  I haven't decided as of yet.  If I do, I will let you all know and the rules that apply to this type of project.  I do have a lot of RL stuff going on and I don't want this project to drag on forever...we'll see.  Thanks everyone!

E4M2 is now complete!  My son who loves playing Doom has volunteered his time (and his friends) to play test the maps.  Hopefully when all this is done all of you will enjoy them!  I will be releasing more screenshots in due time...E4M3 is coming along as well as E4M9.  Just keeping you all in the loop, thanks everyone!

Update...E4M1, E4M2 and E4M9 are now complete.  I am 90% complete with E4M3 and E4M4 is around 25% complete.  Just wanted to keep all of you in the loop.
