I’m just in awe of these screenshots and that you’ve managed to create something like this using Doom! Looking forward to the final product

Absolutely staggering works of Doom art. I might join Discord simply for the pleasure of playtesting this monster.

Funny, the cracks on the floor remind me of Combine Forcefields:

Between this and Refracted Reality, 2020 looks to be an amazing year...not to mention Doom Eternal, of course.

Hexstone Citadel is actually finished. Build time was a little bit under 3 weeks (although I have been on holiday). This was me attempting to make a small map in a short space of time and ... uh ... it is smaller than my usual stuff but yeah, she's still pretty thicc.

Out of curiousity... if you're doing visuals/architecture first, then monster placement, wouldn't a lot of areas have to be reworked to accommodate different encounter setups? Surely, you are not just limiting combat to incidental fighting/enemies teleporting into areas?

Even if I'm doing all layout first, then monsters I plan areas with combat mechanics in mind. This map has a fair amount of warp ins but there's areas that open up revealing enemies (there's one area with a couple hundred revs). Even with teleport in mechanics you can mix it up a lot. One arena has cacos look like they are flying in from above a window which is done with teleporters but it doesn't look like it. You can also have areas that appear empty from a distance but when you get into them and press a button use spawnspots to generate a battalion that reveals itself when walls lower/doors open.
One thing I haven't done in this map is use portals to create non euclidian geometry which allows for space for monsters to be created where none would be available in a less advanced port. That was a deliberate decision for this map but that will happen in other maps (I first started doing this in The Slaughter Spectrum. A good example is the last fight in Palace of the Black Singularity).
