    And masks don’t actually STOP you from getting Covid so there’s even less point of wearing one forever. 

     

    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.

    So the question i have is this, can it be in any map slot expect map07 and map30? Because i've been looking to get into another project lately and help me get better at mapping.

     

    If that's the case then i'll join if there room, if not then that's ok.

     

     

    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.

    I actually have some experience with doom modding i have made a bunch of doom maps  just i have not posted them on the internet for people to download 

     

    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.


  4. 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.

    Fundamentally art is a commodity,

     

    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.


  6. 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 mean that you have to be especialy bonked in the head, if you think a FUCKING online forum was the main cause of January 6 "coup".

    For Christ sake people, life doesn´t revolve around what some cocksucker says on the goddamn internet, and it certainly isn´t a sole reason for a coup (you know there are more complex factors like economic, cultural and social).

     

    So no @june gloom Something Awfull definitely wasn´t a sole cause for World going to shit, there were far more complex events outside of internet that caused this mess. You definetly don´t need to feel shame for meeting your friends on some shity forum, because things were always destined to end up shitty.

     

    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?

    I literally do not care.

     

    Yes, look at all the not caring you're doing. Cut it out.

     

    EDIT: Closing thread due to the potential for high-ordinance shitflinging.


  9. Ahhh, Ave Exitium. I do think that the concepts at play are still decent ones, but I didn't give that poor map nearly as much love as it deserved: 2016 was a bit of a tough one as years go and this map kinda reflects how I was doing at the time. Maybe I should give it a look over some day and tidy it up.

     

    Cheers for the video Galileo. :)
