The Age of Hell (megawad)

Recommended Posts

So, I know things have been a bit quiet on this particular front while I've been getting stuck into Elementalism so I wanted to use this opportunity to give a shout out to @killerkouhai and the Infinite Void which is shaping up to be a damn fine looking map set. So good in fact that I couldn't say no when asked if I wanted to contribute and you may see some evidence of that soon ... (cue ominous music)

 

In Age of Hell related news the discord server, The Hellforge, is close to being ready. I just need to organise everything into a nice pk3 so that some testing can begin. That should get me back into working on TAoH albeit split between these various entities so there will be slow but steady progress on all three fronts.

This is easily my most anticipated megawad at the moment. Shame it's going to be a very long time until I get a chance to play the whole thing. The screenshots look gorgeous, you truly have the eye for visuals. Hopefully, gameplay will be on the same level too :D

 

Wish you good luck on your epic undertaking!

*This is on the OP as well*

 

So there has been a major paradigm shift in the way I am going to approach this project. It was always my original intention for this to be a solo project and to focus on AoH above all else. But a couple of things have changed the way I'm looking at this and i believe this is a good thing.

I've joined a couple of other projects which has made me appreciate working with other people and has just been a whole lot of fun and exposed me to new aesthetics. The downside of this is that I am now spread pretty thin. Fortunately this has coincided with expressions of interest in helping out with AoH which brings me to ...

 

For this project to a) live up to it's potential and b) actually get finished this century that I am going to need some help. So I am very pleased to announce that @killerkouhai is now an official part of the AoH team. You can thank her for the hellishly awesome title font and getting the discord server up and running. She has also been doing epic work organising the resources for the project and getting the pk3 ready for ... playtesting*.

 

So watch this space. Work will be resuming on AoH in the very near future.

 

*This is serious unfinished alpha state playtesting but, playtesting none the less

For those interested parties in more real time updates and a window into the creation process, here is the discord server

From there, if you are interested in playtesting you can make your petition to the Lord of the Damned and your case will be considered

Update time

 

So we hit a few stumbling blocks with getting the pk3 ready. Turns out the latest bugfix version of GZDB does not recognise the decorate file if it is wad format which was causing none of the user defined things to show up in the thing menu. Even a stand alone wad file that I had been using a couple of months ago wouldn't show up. The assets would work fine in test mode though. Problem found and solved so we are now close to having the resource fully compiled. There are just some texture name issues for me to sort which is mostly just grunt work. General Roasterock has been doing the leg work on the decorate so big ups to him for doing this for the project

 

TL:DR unexpected issues have slowed things down a bit but progress is still bubbling away behind the scenes.

Holy shit, I can't believe I overlooked this earlier. This is looking mighty promising!

 

I'll keep an eye peeled. c:

Hi everyone, I'm going to be attempting to stream some mapping tomorrow at 9am (GMT+13). I should be going for most of the day so pop in and say hi and witness the methods behind the madness*. I'll put a post on the streamers thread too when I'm ready to start.

 

*more madness

Ok so a non update. Not much happening on AoH at the moment due to an increased work load and imminent release of Infinite Void Refracted Reality

So the bad news is that AoH is further delayed but the good news is that Refracted Reality will be released Jan 31st which will contain (cue drums) my first released maps (probably 3 of them). So go check out @killerkouhai's project. It's going to be out in the near future and it's going to be fucking awesome.

that architecture is amazing. jaw-dropping, i'd say. but i cannot imagine how you can orchestrate fights there -- for me, it is more fits into some adventure style. but meh, i never did a playable map in my life, so i cannot imagine how you did all that geometry too. ;-)

 

i mean -- this looks great. can't wait to lay my hands on those maps. I WANT THAT HELL! ;-)

@Bridgeburner56You really should be designing stuff for employment, making a ton a cash for your work. Those screenshots show perfection - seriously. Impressed, as always!

Maybe indeed. I'll keep that in mind. Careful what you wish for... :)
