    The DWmegawad Club plays: Ozonia

    What is the DWmegawad Club? This is a place where we settle down, have a cup of tea (or drink of your choice) and take a month to play through a megawad on our own, together! Any keen observations, criticisms, or frustrated ranting about it goes here in the discussion. As long as you want to say something about what you've played, feel free to speak your mind. Can I join? Sure. The only rule is that you have to play at least some of the levels in our monthly megawad to contribute, but you're generally encouraged to finish the whole thing, even if you've played it before. What levels am I allowed to post about? Whatever day of the month it is, is the upper limit for the map you can post on. So if it’s the 6th, you may discuss up to MAP06. Do I have to post an entry every day? Nope, not at all. This is only for our more enthusiastic members. As long as you play through it with us you’re part of the club. When do we vote on the next month’s megawad? Voting begins on the 25th of the current month. Remember to add one “+++” before your vote to make it easier to count. For example: +++ Ultimate Doom Note that you can only nominate up to three separate wads for a single month, and the wads must contain at least three maps each. The winning wad must receive at least four votes for a thread to be made. Ties will be decided by RNG. ---------- >>>DOWNLOAD MOONBLOOD (RC2 Deluxe) HERE<<< >>>DOWNLOAD MOONBLOOD (RC2 Classic) HERE<<< Time to enter the zone! The O-zone! ia! Ozonia is the third part of the Moonblood saga, a crafty series made by the ever-crafty Deadwing. Expect smaller maps with an Eviternity-style difficulty, some gorgeous visuals, and a couple of new foes. Note that the only difference between the Deluxe and Classic editions is that Deluxe uses an mp3 soundtrack while Classic uses your usual midi soundtrack.

  4. Nice work cannonball, I appreciate the leadership. I've updated your Alpha with a couple changes that I had made to my own version, which is mainly reorganizing the midis. E3M8 has different timing mechanisms for the different difficulties IIRC (the mass of cacos takes longer to warp in) though I generally argue that Heels needs to make the differences in difficulty a touch more pronounced (where's my blue armor on HNTR?!!!) No news on E1M7—I'll post it when it's ready. Also, assuming I get E1M7 done in a timely manner, I'd like my hand at editing E4M7 to ensure it's swift and deadly. I've promised Mr. Duff some mapping over the next month or so, so you guys will be waiting for just a lil' bit longer. But it at least appears that The End is in Sight!

    Project DARK (SCYTHE) - Now on /idgames!

    =================================== Project DARK is completed! Download Dark Scythe on /idgames! =================================== What is Project DARK? I've recently come into possessing a treasure trove of map scraps from a popular author that I want to stitch together into a series of mini-episodes. I've put a lot of them together myself, but rather than work on this project solo I figured I'd enlist the help of the community! What do I have to do? Either sign up in this thread or shoot me a PM, and I'll message you a wad file that I'd like you to edit. Most of these are short, explosive, Boom-compatible maps, with a definitive early 2000's feel. You're going to have to connect areas together, add details, adjust monster placement, and occasionally make new rooms. None of these maps should take too long to finish, unless you get ambitious. Also before you sign up, make sure you 100% intend to work on this as soon as possible. I want to get this project finished in a timely manner, and don't want anyone to sign up with a backlog of wads they should already be working on. If you're going to sign up just to see what a scrap looks like, don't bother. What about textures and music? The original author has already provided me with the textures he was planning on using, as well as a midi selection. I'll send over the texture pack, and each map will come with its own midi. Can I post screenshots of my work? No. I want to keep this project as secretive as possible. I think it'll be really cool to quietly upload this to /idgames and surprise everyone with who the original author is. When we're in beta and about a week from release, maybe I'll let some folks post some teaser shots. What if my mapping style doesn't fit the original author's? What if I don't like the scrap I'm given? Don't worry about it, I'm sure we'll be able to work something out through PM. I also reserve the right to refine any sections I think are "discordant", so if you make a 500 cyberdemon mosh pit, I'll probably ask you to remove that. -------- So without further ado, please sign up! I've already got some really cool mappers on board, so come join the DARK team! All slots are currently full. I'll open it back up if anyone drops out.

    The DWmegawad Club plays: Interception II

    Looks like 1000 Lines 3 is our winner for next (this?) month with a whopping 14 votes. I'll get around to making it within 24 hours. It's not the first choice to reach 5 votes, it's that the winning choice needs at least 4 votes in order to get a thread made for it, just so I'm not spending time making a thread for 1-2 people.

    Yeah I made it after looking at some of Alm's stuff and trying to emulate his style a bit. I balanced the mapset so that as you dig deeper into the project, the joke becomes clearer and clearer until it's basically unbearable.

    New thread will be up tomorrow. Zone 400 is the winner, with Zenith in second. Not going to combine them however as it seems like a hellish amount of maps to get through and I don't even know how I'd order it.
  19. Thanks! Good to hear you enjoyed it! Oh no no, you've been around long enough I know you don't mean any of it out of malice; the unfiltered, blunt review is always appreciated (see Magnus). Plus it's good getting one puzzle-hater to playtest it because I doubt you're alone in this. The only puzzle-oriented map in the whole megawad is E2M9 so I did feel a bit cautious making a non-secret map have mandatory puzzles, and you're a good tester for this stuff since if I can make you happy, it should be fine for just about anybody. Good work on the caco room, by the way. I think the final puzzle room is likely fine as-is—like cb said, once you know the trick (and know to strafe-run the whole time), it's a pretty quick solve. Plus the exit puzzle is somewhat necessary as it gives UVMaxers something to do as the cacos get crushed (given that there's too many to kill with the PG alone). I do agree with you that the red-blue caco room's timing is probably too tight, especially given how labyrinthian it feels... I'll see if relocating the switch helps it. Thanks for the feedback! My process was that cb wanted a better exit fight so I wanted to reuse the lock-in idea but instead make it a cacoswarm that slowly overwhelms you, forcing you to flee from it. As I was working it out I wanted to add more environmental storytelling here given the wad's lack of it, but perhaps I altered the map too much; the simplicity of the original was nice in its own way. I can make the caco fight a touch easier, though it's a thin line between being overwhelming and a boring "strafe and shoot plasma"-fest. I tested it several times and felt this was a good balance between the two, but I'm not against making it easier if it helps the map to flow better. Any other recommendations? You can see I'm in a bit of a pickle as you dislike the caco fight, Steve dislikes the puzzles, and cb is good with both. I'm not sure where I should simplify it and make alterations—like you mentioned, all of it may be a bit "too much" so it's not like one room needs to be "fixed" over another.
  20. I think E2M4 is ready for testing. I honestly didn't intend to put two puzzle rooms in the map but oh well. The only thing I'm somewhat iffy on is the red & blue caco room—I don't know if the "puzzle" there feels intuitive, or if it'll be easy for players to make their way to the lift. Maaaaybe I'll return to it later and fiddle with it, but as is I'd rather start work on E1M7. Note that the map needs the ALLBLACK & xFALL textures if you're going to play it. DGM_E2M4.zip

    Sure, we'll try it this way. Dunno if it's smart to do it like this since folks habitually know to play secret map + regular map, but Doom 1's episode structure doesn't even follow naturally with the days of the week, so....... I'll type in bold for people: secret maps get their own days.

    The DWmegawad Club plays: Doom Zero

    What is the DWmegawad Club? This is a place where we settle down, have a cup of tea (or drink of your choice) and take a month to play through a megawad on our own, together! Any keen observations, criticisms, or frustrated ranting about it goes here in the discussion. As long as you want to say something about what you've played, feel free to speak your mind. Can I join? Sure. The only rule is that you have to play at least some of the levels in our monthly megawad to contribute, but you're generally encouraged to finish the whole thing, even if you've played it before.

  24. Almost done with E2M4—just have to do the cave to the left. I know it looks like I've lost my mind but one thing led to another and now there's a bit more substance to the map. Nothing crazy, just an "intermission" for the red key, final fight, and nasty little exit puzzle (which is necessary for UVMax, trust me!!!). Hopefully it'll all feel like an improvement and not needless bloat.
  25. ^ I'd make the shadows cast from the pillars go out at a bit of an angle, like 15° or so, since the light from the lava isn't a laser beam :P Feel free—like I said, I don't think it needs that many changes... mainly just light differences. That said, I'd like to reserve E4M7 a little in advance if Peanut doesn't show up any time. I had ideas of how to adjust/change things but never implemented it since Peanut was editing the map. Hopefully I'll have E2M4 wrapped up soon so I can start on E1M7. After that we have... what, E2M3 and E1M8 left?
