    Level design tropes you use

    Hmm... - "Needs more intensely colored lights" - "Man this room looks dull... I know, I'll add a grated floor!" - "Man, I like Quake. I think I'll make this more Quake-like. Yeah. Like super-hurting lava." - "Needs some more intensely colored lights." - "I love colored lighting."

    What do you think DoomGuy couldn't win against?

    Hmm, off the top of my head... - The Chaos gods in 40K. Or you know, half of the other things in that universe. - Lovecraftian Outer Gods - Godzilla - A berzerk Eva - Segata Sanshiro

    Do you prefer midi songs in doom mods or mp3 and other formats.

    Definitely ogg/mp3 or tracker music. Then, aside from whatever slight differences the tracker library might introduce, I can pretty much guarantee I'm hearing what the author of the track intended me to hear.

    Has PBR for Doom been a disappointment so far?

    I honestly wasn't that excited for PBR to begin with, except for a few very specific corner cases. I still feel the same way, if not more so.

    Unpopular maps you enjoy

    Tricks and Traps, The Factory, The Chasm, and Barrels of Fun from Doom 2.

    Share a random fact about yourself

    Despite loving spicy food, I can't stand wasabi. Yet I like daikon and radishes.

    Doom vs Quake, how many frames of animation for monsters?

    Quake 1's model format is MDL. It uses 10 key frames per second for animation, and can have 256 frames total. There's also a limit of 2048 triangles and 2000 verticies (1024 in GLQuake), and a skin size limit of 480x480 pixels. The animation is totally vertex based - there's no skeleton. Vanilla Quake looked jerky because there was no interpolation between key frames. Modern source ports usually have interpolated models, but this can be disabled ("nolerp" CVars and I think also a command line option). If you really want hard numbers on the number of frames used for a specific pose (remember, Quake didn't need poses for separate angles), just look at the QuakeC sources. The frames are listed there, for example the Ogre. There's another modern format called IQM that some Quake source ports implement. It has a lot more features, including skeletal animation. But AFAIK Quakespasm doesn't support it, so I've never messed with it or come across anything using it. Quake 2's MD2 models are pretty much the same, but with some raised limits. 4096 triangles, 2048 verticies, 512 frames, etc. The number of key frames is the same. The skin is stored separately, however. AFAIK, they were interpolated during rendering, but I've never messed with Quake 2 much so I can't say for sure. Videos of Quake 2 running on a Voodoo 2 seem to show interpolated animations. Some of the wobble you see, iirc, is due to the vertex coordinates being stored as a byte, so there just isn't a lot of precision there to begin with. Quake 3 is where things got a bit more interesting with the MD3 format, which could have a variable number of key frames. You could also chop up the model into different parts (like the head, torso, legs, whatever) and animate those separately. That's why Quake 3's player models could be running, look up, and you see the torso bend at the waist. These were vertex animated as well.
