  1. WELCOME TO THE DOOMWORLD MAXIMUM PROJECT 2021! Description The premise is simple: this project seeks to get submissions from as many mappers as possible, regardless of status or proficiency. Whether you're just starting out on your journey or an old hand at this mapping lark, we want you! We take all comers and any maps submitted will receive feedback from myself or some of the other mappers participating. Rules One map submission per person. Map must be playable in singleplayer and be for the Doom 2 IWAD. You can map for any format or compatibility mode. When submitting your map, please specify what format the map is for. PLEASE test your maps in the format you made them for: check for things like doors and lifts not having the appropriate tags, as some source ports like ZDoom fix those ingame and can fool you into thinking that they work fine when they don't. No DeHackEd content, but other custom content is allowed: this includes textures, music, DECORATE, whatever you can think of as long as it doesn't replace other Doom 2 resources. Credit your content sources! If you're using a few custom textures, make sure that they're all named with a 3-letter prefix of your username: something like OBS_****, for example. If you're using an entire pack (OTEX, CC4tex, etc), let me know which one and I'll ferret out the textures used once compiling rolls around. No reserving MAP07 or MAP30 slots. No using the secret exit actions. All submissions are welcome: small maps, big maps, slaughter maps, joke maps, anything that isn't purposefully abusive is allowed and encouraged. Go nuts! The deadline is midnight on the 1st of January, 2022 in Yankee Time (the last possible place for it to be 2021): here's a handy countdown. And most importantly, enjoy yourself! 3-2-1-GO!

    It's new name is..

    Masks do however help to prevent people who have COVID from spreading it to others. It's a distinction without a difference only if the majority of people are wearing them.

    What do you think of Doom 2?

    It has Arch-Viles. I like Arch-Viles.
  4. The rule to do with MAP07 and MAP30 is solely so people don't try and build around the gimmicks present in those slots. This is very much an open project and there's no upper limit on the amount of maps that will be accepted, so long as it's just one per person.

    Doom Missions (community project)

    Then maybe you should! At the very least it shows people that you have the mapping prowess to back up your project and might make them more interested in contributing, if you do indeed decide to continue with it.

    Doom Missions (community project)

    I'll echo the advice that Kinsie gave you in your previous thread: if you're just starting out in the Doom modding community, it's best to start small and sharpen your skills over time. Starting out with a planned 200-map megawad and trying to host your own community project are both serious endeavors that a lot of veteran community members would balk at (let alone simultaneously) and it would be better for you in the long term if you set your ambitions just a wee bit lower: maybe try to make some standalone maps and collect feedback on the forums, for example. Almost everyone starts out wanting to make their magnum opus, it's true, but you'll be doing yourself a favour in the long run if you start small.

    Merged this thread and what looked like a duplicate thread to reduce clutter, apologies for any confusion.

    Split the non-identical comments into a prior thread to keep things neat and tidy.

    What's the value of anything online?

    Only if we treat it as such: a fair few artists would tell you that their art is primarily a means of self-expression and a conduit for creative energies and to treat such things as merely items to be bought or sold is exactly the mindset that has led to the proliferation of things like NFTs.
  11. And that is us done for another month! Cheers to everyone who submitted maps for the session. :)
  12. IT BEGINS Your third theme is fast conveyer belts (minimum 256). Let's goooooooo!
  13. Round 2, start! You have 15 minutes for resource gathering and your resource pack is here. :)
  14. Lemme know what it is and I can fix it for you. :)
  15. Time's up, 15 for bugfixing and miscellaneous debris starts now!
  16. Light transfers are linedef specials 213 (for floors) and 261 (for ceilings) in Boom. The light level of the sector the tagged linedef is adjacent to is carried over to the tagged sector floor or ceiling, depending on which one you use. Hope this helps!
  17. THEMES 1. Mandatory light transfers 2. Heavy usage of midtextures BEGIN!
  18. WE BEGIN! Here's your resource pack, 15 minutes for resource gathering begins now!

    The Library - UDMF Atmospheric Map

    A little late to the party, but I just checked this out now and I like what you're doing here. :D Beyond my well-documented fondness for library maps, the concept of a map who's sole focus is invoking atmosphere is something I'd love to see explored in more detail and as it stands this is an excellent proof of concept: I do however echo @Alper002's sentiment in regards to secrets. :P Looking forward to seeing where you take the idea. Oh, and feel free to send me a message if you want to do future maps like these in Boom format: I can rig up ambient noise in DeHackEd and a few other neat things besides and I'd love to see this sort of thing take off in earnest.

    I would like them to say it.

    I would agree with you in regards to SA not being the sole cause of the actions taken on January 6th, but the attitudes fostered on that forum were certainly ones that contributed to the current state of internet culture and conduct and it is important to bear that in mind when talking about things like cultural and social factors. Online radicalization is very much a thing and I imagine that you could trace the lineage of a lot of the internet's more unsavory corners back to SomethingAwful if you tried hard enough. Oh yes, and why do you have quotation marks around the word coup?

    NoSp3 Demos [-complevel 21]

    Split an earlier demo into the thread, looks like the forum software supplanted the OP with it due to when it was made. :P Apologies for any confusion!
