    I want to feel like I'm inside someone else's world. This can range from zone300 to Sunder. Either way, I look back on those levels like I've been some place.

    Well said. I usually only feel completely engrossed when I'm playing large levels with open layouts, but you hit the nail on the head with Sunder!

  2. Some of you are taking this to a whole new level. I'm not saying the aesthetic aspect of the maps should be completely neglected, I just said I'm not too concerned with small visual details in a map. The layout and detailing are two separate things in my eyes, and detail has nothing to do with the way a map plays. The layout is and always will be the most important thing to me in a map, but if it is visually stimulating, that's a bonus, and I do enjoy a perfect mixture of the two. Layout is what the gameplay is based on, and visual ugliness doesn't affect my opinion concerning a map too much (there are some exceptions). The sprites themselves should definitely not be neglected, but I never said anything about sprites, so I don't know where some of you are coming up with that idea. But everyone has his/her own opinion and I respect that. As long as there are Hell Revealed inspired WADs being pumped out, I'm content :D

  3. Is there anyone else on here that isn't concerned too much with quality map detailing and is mainly concerned with gameplay? Don't get me wrong, I appreciate detail and visually stunning maps, but overall, the gameplay is what sells me on any map. I don't care if a map is ugly, as long as a wad is fun to play and challenging, it's solid in my book. This excludes general map layout, as this directly affects gameplay. Layout is a huge factor in my mind. Now I really love the aesthetics and scenery that some of ribbiks' mapsets provide, because I love the bright colors, dark lighting, and the sharp contrast between the two, but off the top of my head, those are the only mapsets that stands out. I do appreciate the different basic scenery variations, such as base, hell, outdoors. What do you guys think?

    Um, I think you have access to the full game because you bought it early. Or at least that's the impression I got of how it works.

    splatterhouse: cool homophobia bro

    I'm not homophobic at all. I actually have gay friends and support gay rights. It's just a word, FAG! haha

  5. I'm trying to figure out how to disable transparent projectiles and lost souls in Zandronum. I've read that the transparency configuration is contained within the RenderStyle property (at least for actors), so my question is, how can I edit the appropriate DECORATE definitions (if that's what I need to do) to change the projectiles and lost souls to spawn as non-transparent entities? Thanks!

    This idea gets tossed around from time to time. There's nothing fundamentally wrong with it, but the problem is that whoever's offering to pay mappers will almost certainly undervalue their effort, which is insulting, and it's also likely that mappers will undervalue their own skills by accepting low pay, which is really just as bad.

    Most mappers map for free just for fun, so if they're already making maps for those purposes, getting a little bit of extra cash for their efforts sounds pretty golden. But depending on how good the mappers are (probably very talented if they're a part of the project) and how picky the project funder/manager is, there could be a dispute with the final product. What the funder needs to keep in mind is that it's basically an experiment.

  7. Alright, so I just updated from IDE 4.71 to IDE 4.80. With version 4.71, all of my DOOM2 wads loaded single player (with the Skulltag source port) fine. Now, none of them load. I reset all of my directories, and they match up with the locations of the wads. I had no idea there would be a problem with the update, so I deleted IDE version 4.71, and now I can't find it, as the IDE site doesn't have version 4.71 available for download anymore. The link just takes me to the version 4.80 dl page. Can someone help me out with either a link to version 4.71 or a fix for this problem with version 4.80?

  8. I don't understand why the full version of DOOM is not available for download for free when it is open-source. You can compile the FREE source code and have the full game, so it doesn't seem fair that id still charges people to download the game, even if it is a hundred percent worth it. Anyone know why this is the case?
