  2. We will cross that bridge if we ACTUALLY get that many submissions. I thought April 1st is a bit far away, but everyone has different habits, and I don't want to discourage busy/slow/late coming mappers. Also I have an announcement: HYMN will be donating all its maps submissions to the Blasphemer project. More information about it at the first post. In a way this project WILL be contributing to a megawad, so I guess it works out.
  3. The HYMN project is now officially willing to donate all our map submissions to this project (unless individual mappers say otherwise). The maps will be in standard Heretic format with lots of unfamiliar textures. These maps will need some work before they are compatible for this project, but I speak for the Doom/Heretic community when I say we want to see this project finished, and we can help by providing some varied, competent, fantasy themed levels.
  4. EvilNed01: As this project evolves the resources have been updated. Download this: http://www.mediafire.com/?td7a1vw2h72b9sb Remove the old texture pack from your level, and place this new one there instead. All the textures should replace correctly, only now with cross-port compatibility. Hope this helps!
  5. I may not be the best person to answer this but: First, get Slade 3 . . . its a Doom editor. Load both Doom II wad and your map into the editor. Find the song your looking for in the Doom II wad, copy it and paste it into your wad. Your not done. Now you need to rename it to match whichever map slot your map uses (E1M1 or Map01, etc.). Rename your song the exact name of the song your map occupies (D_RUNNIN for example) and finally save your map. Oh, and I'm not sure if this method works with the ports you are using.

  8. (drops jaw) Those screen shots look sick!
  9. Creativity is up to you! While this will be an episode in the sense that it will be 8 regular levels and a 'secret' level, they should all be designed for wand start, so if maulotaurs can be reasonably defeated from wand start in your level, go for it! I will most likely choose the order of the episode's levels based on the submissions.
  10. That was my original thought. But now I feel that, as a community project, making it straight vanilla will cut the confusion and encourage more to participate. Most mappers creating 'medium' sized levels probably won't hit any limits. Besides, its not exclusively vanilla; there is some new content, the texture pack.
  11. I'm not familiar with it, though I am interested and flexible. Tell me more . . .
  12. HYMN: A Heretic Community Project What's next? Now that I have all the submissions I will create a new thread with an episode alpha, including level order (all maps will be included!) Then we play each others' maps. We give one another feedback and suggestions for improvement. Once we have given and gotten feedback we polish our maps for the final release! Stay tuned . . . Hymn of the Fallen Lords (HYMN): A Heretic Community Project! Heretic mappers, get ready, this is the community project you’ve been waiting for! Anyone can submit a map! You will have until April 1st (04-01-13) to post a link for your level here in the forum. If your interested in joining just let me know, and I will add your name to the roster. File submissions will also be added onto the roster listed below. After the submission deadline (04-01-13) I will announce which maps have been selected as levels for this episode. There will be 8 levels selected, 9 levels total, including one of my own. Once these levels have been chosen BETA testing will begin. Mappers of the selected levels will have another chance to tweak and balance their levels, making final changes and adjustments before the final release. If your map is still incomplete by the deadline SUBMIT IT ANYWAYS! Those who have their maps chosen will get more time to fine tune their entries. Also, If there are over 18 entries a second episode will be created as well. All level submissions will be donated to the Blasphemer project as well, another great reason to submit a map. I will be using the following set of criteria to select which 8 levels are to be included in the episode’s final release: -The new texture pack has been used. Get it here: UPDATED v4a: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9TgHAsj1BGtNTVHeHE3ZHdvQ0U/edit -Design for limit extended vanilla format for Heretic. Compatible ports should include Heretic+, ZDoom, Vavoom, Legacy, Doomsday/LibHeretic, and Eternity. Vanilla Heretic is also accepted. -Levels are designed for ‘wand start’. -Levels integrate 2 or 3 ‘fantasy’ themes. Examples: medieval towns, castles, lava caves, swamps, dungeons, catacombs, temples, icy areas, etc. -Levels display clever, integrated, non-linear layouts. -Medium sized maps. Somewhere between ‘3072 x 3072’ and ‘4096 x 4096’ is recommended. -Game-play should be challenging but not exceedingly (impossibly) difficult. -New music is allowed, but not necessary. If there is new music it should reflect the Heretic fantasy theme. -All of Heretic's enemies, weapons, and items can be used. This episode should be more complex and more detailed than the original Heretic episodes, so that it feels more modern, epic, and interesting than the original. Can’t wait to see the creativity! Happy mapping! About the texture pack: Textures are compatible with Zdoom, Vavoom, Legacy, Doomsday/LibHeretic, and the Eternity ports. 180 textures and flats have been carefully selected from both Medieval and Baker’s Legendary texture packs. A few select textures from Cage, Eternal Doom, Gothic Doom, and Community Chest 4 have also been included. Everything is Heretic themed and provides crucial supplements for the very limited original Heretic palette.

If there are any mappers that do NOT want their levels donated to Blasphemer they must say so when they place their submissions.
  13. Here it is! Final version of: Doom 2 in name only: MAP11: Circle of Death (named "'O' of Destruction!" on the automap) Tested and balanced inside out and upside down! (crosses fingers that there's no problems). Feels like a long lost Alien Vendetta track! Image: Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?3f46m114oy5qxyk
  14. I've been looking for ways to make more interesting nature areas. I know the DOOM engine isn't exactly ideal for recreating The Great Outdoors, but perhaps yous might know of any WADs that have done an exceptional job of creating jungles, forests, or nature in general. Suggestions?
  15. So, Slade 3 IS an actor editor, as long as your willing to type and/or copy/paste code?
