    What are the most impressive wads you've seen?

    Definitely Heartland, BTSX E1 and E2, Elementalism, Age of Hell, Blade of Agony, Heck even the older ZDoom wads like Ultimate Torment and Torture still impress me even now.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Started working on Abysm X: Dance of Blood again after finishing my Operation Orange. Here are some various screenshots of what i've made over the past week.
  3. I would judge it the same way i would any other map. If its fun to play and navigate then I'll like it and will replay it in then future it its not then i wont like it and will move on to the next mapset. There was an idea for a chalice dungeon type Game mode for Abysm 2 where AI generated maps would have been a godsend.

    Unpopular Doom Opinions

    When UV-or nothing people complain that hard more is Hard and ignoring the Textfile to try HMP First, having UV be a special Edition type deal is what they're pretty much going to get. A Mapper can only take so much before they put matters in their own hand, which is why Abysm 1 and 2 doesnt have a hard more, specifically because people will ignore the intended Normal mode.

    I will admit that i got very carried away in this thread, in multiple occasions, so apologies. Though I hope this doesn't come across as me hating on MtPain, because I do respect his work a lot and will watch all of the episodes, Day 1, until we make it to Sunlust. I was simply taken aback by the out of left field joke that seems very uncharacteristic of what I expected from the show and reacted negatively despite pretty much agreeing with a lot of the criticism and opinions about E2.

    We'll considering i've been mostly in agreement with the criticsm made in the video, Im not sure what you are on about since this was more a statement about media in general. Come on, we're better than this "yur a fanboy" argument ffs. At some point you gotta roll your eyes when you see people call maps from Eviternity or AA called "souless"

    true, a dedicated thread for that would make an interesting discussion. Another good one is "going through the motions" yes, this map has great fundamentals but since it didn't have anything special it's mediocre.

    Doom Pictures Thread 2022

    Your command of the UDMF Feature set is superb. the final screenshot made some stock textures almost unrecognizable

    "overrated", "pretentious", "souless" = I don't like it, but I have to put blame on the creator for utterly failing to entertain me and not my personal taste and preferences.
  10. Rapidfire 4 but all of the Maps are 50 minutes long and Have complex Architecture.

    October is here so might as well make it happen.

    Well you won't because no one here is debating about his opinion's on the maps quality. I very much agreed with a fair bit of the criticism in the video and nodded with agreement with the Fair B grade. I did a very brief scan of the thread since the video was posted and I still fail to see how this is about him not liking and criticizing a mapset. The discussion was the very choice words in the end about the team and not his assessment of the maps and the mapset.

    I don't really understand where this is coming from. the mappers involved in the discourse were very respectful and were simply taken aback by the back handed comment. Ribbiks and Tarns simply told their side so i don't know what humility they were lacking. I will never make a 30 minute detailed map ever in my entire life thanks to these arbitrary checklist of "stroking your artistic ego" going around (looks at Abysm 2's overworld map, ooops to late).

    I won't deny there are cases like this. My comment was more pertaining to this mapset in particular.

    Pretty much this. This isn't about "you mad cuz he hates your favorite wad" its the tasteless jab to mappers who, allegedly, are full of themselves. There is a Key difference in "this map overstayed it welcome and end up being too long for me to enjoy" and "if only these designers weren't so full of themselves they could have made a map i enjoy". one is a fair criticism and one is just a low blow. AGAIN no one here is stopping people from not liking BTSX E2, it don't know why anyone thinks this is about criticizing BTSX.

    Personally i just find off putting calling something made for Fun to have Fun as egotistical or pretentious, especially a project that started life as "wow Essel, these texture you made are awsome lets make some maps for these". celebrating your peers hard work and skill through creativity is far from egotistical.
