    Look into the /incoming directory ! There is a lot of stuff there but nobody copies it to newstuff. I uploaded my map Thursday.

    Some congressman blames Doom and not mapping like that? Just what kind of adults are the members of the JeffK generation going to produce?

    Thankless, brute, undisciplined, rebellious savages. That map is your glimpse into the apocalyptic future of humanity, an ironic twist of Doom's avowed intent.

    I'm not overreacting.

    I am a little nauseous, though.

    I'm prepared to admit I could just be being stupid here, but I can't even find "incoming" at the moment. I'm sure it was there before, but when I look at ftp://3darchives.in-span.net/pub/idgames/ in either IE, or CuteFTP, I can't see the incoming directory.

    This is what I can see:

    LAST.24hours
    LAST.7days
    README
    README.INCOMING
    README.legal
    README.mirrorers
    REJECTS
    UPLTEMPL.TXT
    combos
    deathmatch
    docs
    graphics
    historic
    idstuff
    levels
    lmps
    ls-laR.gz
    misc
    music
    newstuff
    prefabs
    roguestuff
    skins
    sounds
    source
    themes
    utils

    Am I missing something obvious?

    and after reading the text file, and "playing" Supar1337 for maybe 5 seconds, I cannot believe it is anything other than a joke. The text is full of asshole 1337 5Þ34|<, or whatever, and the WAD shows you just about every stereoptypical editing "no no" in the first few seconds of play.

    The incoming directory is not mirrored, that's why you can't see it. The original archive is here:

    ftp://archives.3dgamers.com

    But it should only be used for uploads. There is a user limit of 200 users that's why it's hard to access it without a good FTP client.

    I have to admit that this wad made me smile. I think most ppl are missing the point that this wad is meant to be a joke (i hope).

    Damn, you just beat me to it. I just logged on to post almost exactly the same thing as you.

    A pretty innovative piece of work. Too dark, yes, but graphically, musically and sound wise a heap of top quality replacements with some quite stunning areas in the map. And just wait 'til you get to the space ship for an unusual, and very hard use of monsters.

    For DM-Maps, you might also want to check out ftp://3darchives.in-span.net/pub/idgames/newstuff/dm-morph.zip by Biff, which makes for a fun and unusual DM experience thanks to cunning use of a couple of rarely touched Zdoom features (needs the latest beta).

    "some quite stunning areas in the map."

    should be

    some quite stunning areas in the maps.

    After all, there are 13 of them.

    "No, wait, it's all there! More than 20 uploads in newstuff - Andrew, look at that again"

    Okay, what's going on here? If there's 20 wads in newstuff, how come only the really bad one gets reviewed?

    Last week's nuts.wad was better than this one!

    The text file says:
    Bugs: n0p3, 3y3 4m 700 1337 4 bu65
    Well, then I wonder what a BUGGY map from this person would be like!

    I hope next week's /newstuff will have some actual levels.

    It had to be a joke.

    "Bugs: n0p3, 3y3 4m 700 1337 4 bu65"
    I think that pretty much proves it.

    So, I have to wonder who really submitted it.

    I think we may find this map is actually by a well known person.

    I don't believe someone could get so many hideous things wrong by accident. Unclosed sectors, awfull texture combinations, missing and inappropriate textures, inappropriate enemies, 3 Cybies in a big square room.

    And then there is the text file.

    IMO, Someone knew exactly what they were doing.

    "OK, who then?"

    I suspect that either they will reveal themselves or we will never know.
    I'm pretty curious, myself.

    By the way, actually, I kind of like it when someone makes a bad wad on purpose.

    Cause then they get all these reactions.
