The Joy of Mapping #1|
Jimmy & Various|
This was a livestreamed communal mapping session that took place on July 23rd, 2016, with participants mapping under the strict guidance of Jimmy and a few session tutors via Discord and TwitchTV. The mappers were talking through the basics of mapping, such as creating connected areas, interesting layouts, and using thing placement sensibly. In hopefully the first of many similar live tutorial sessions!|
The participants mapped in a variety of formats, mostly Boom and ZDoom (UDMF).

|Zalewa||Megawad? More like shortwad. Maps are okay - good visuals, no gameplay problems, but some have difficult fights. They just are extremelly short and you beat all 15 maps in 15 minutes or so. Also, if you make a ZDoom WAD then disable jumping in MAPINFO if it can break levels - like it does here.||x|
|Pinchy||Very pleased with the turnout of the first session.
No major problems with any of the maps.||x|
