  1. Frankly the world would be a worse place without an HMS Fireblu.....

    Doomworld International thread

    England, specifically the Cambridgeshire Fens. There isn’t much here and contrary to the opinion most have about Cambridge, the rest of the county is a bit of a dive. Not to mention it is quite possibly the flattest place in the whole universe.
  3. Princess Diana’s death in 1997 (7 years old).
  4. As this thread started because of some parody story about the UK, just from looking at the ONS (Office of national statistics) Flu deaths this year up to the end of August - 394 Covid19 - 48168 ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsduetocoronaviruscovid19comparedwithdeathsfrominfluenzaandpneumoniaenglandandwales/deathsoccurringbetween1januaryand31august2020 Just because our useless media spent several months reporting stories that for some reason clumped Flu and Pneumonia (It kills all year round as it can be caused by multiple factors) together. Does not mean it is true and the actual statistics back this up. Flu was already running at below average levels before Covid19 really took off in the UK, not to mention that influenza is already well on the decline by early Spring and stays at very low levels before the Autumn.

    Endless's WAD Reviews - DBP08: MINDBLOOD GENESIS

    Cheers for the review and I am glad you enjoyed playing this. As an aside the name for map05 is a wordplay based off this British sitcom; https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0487831/ It seemed appropriate given the primary computer base theme of the map.

    Cacowards 2020 Mentionation Thread

    I would certainly say that Mutabor by@tourniquet is one of the best releases I have played this year.

    Your favorite Map Authors/Mappers?

    Not sure about the 90s, I guess the Casalis would rank near the top. 2000s my favourites would probably be Erik Alm who pushed for that slick and polished look that is heavily present today and Gusta for the sheer oddness of Kama Sutra along with creating some of the best maps for Plutonia 2. As for now, probably Skillsaw for pushing the boundaries of slick gameplay and Ribbiks who took the works of Insane Gazebo and death destiny and made some of the finest monster puzzle maps in existence.
  8. Cheers for the review, embarrassingly I forgot I even released this and I just put it on IDgames as it was a single old map from an idea that never materialised. I was personally a fan of Vile Flesh's rather expansive later levels so it was nice to make something of a tribute to that.
  9. In no particular order, most of these come from back in my younger days so late 90s/2000s 1. Doom/Doom2 - Oddly I got into doom a lot later than Quake. 2. Quake - Played this a lot back on the old windows 98 PC. 3. Quake 2 - Second FPS I played 4. Rollercoaster Tycoon (Up to 2 as they collection is essentially based off the same framework). I possibly spent a large chunk of my young life building parks from scratch. 5. GTA (Probably Vice City just but really enjoyed 3 and San Andreas as well) - Not much to say really. 6. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 - Had this on PC, I played most of the titles for the PS2. 7. Timesplitter series - Probably my favourite FPS game from the PS2. 8. Burnout (Probably 4 for the PS2 was my favourite) - Okay this wad very arcade like, but it had a real charm to it. 9. Crash Bandicoot 3 - Probably my favourite platformer from the day. 10. Jazz Jackrabbit 2 - Had the shareware version with the first PC my family got, so I guess this brings back a lot of warm memories.

    What is your favorite official Doom-Midi? And your least favorite?

    My favourite is definitely Sinister. I like the dark, moody atmosphere the midi gives off. Least favourite, not sure but I must admit a few like Running from evil and bye bye american pie are not ones I can listen too over and over again.

    Return to Hadron Episode 3 - Idgames release

    It had crossed my mind quite a few times to the point where I did have a look back at the previous episodes to see if I could stitch it all together. However for now I think I am going to leave things as they are. ============================================================== Idgames download is up; https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom/Ports/g-i/hadrone3

    Return to Hadron Episode 3 - Idgames release

    Final release (Just Episode 3) Hadrone3.zip All issues should have been addressed in this release. The IDgames version should be up in a few days hopefully. Thanks to everyone for spotting issues and general blunders on my behalf.

    Ultimate Doom In Name Only - Limit removing project

    Right, time for bump/progress update. There are three maps (E1M7, E3M7, E3M8) that do not have a playable submission at the moment, so if those working on these maps could just give a brief progress update that would be fine. Personally with other projects out of the way, I will try to solely focus on this in the limited free time I do have with the hope that things to move forward a little quicker.
