  1. Is your new avatar that girl from Rewrite? Looks a bit like her, but I can't say for sure.

      Yeah! :) Have you read it too?

      Not really. I tried watching the anime of it a while back, though, and I'm pretty familiar with a bunch of KEY characters anyway, even if the only visual novel of their's I've actually gone through is a couple CLANNAD routes and, if you can even count it, part of the intro to Little Busters!.

      Ah, that's too bad. The anime adaptation is awful, but the VN is an absolute masterpiece. It's also quite un-Key-like for a Key release.

      I'll have to keep that in mind, then!

  2. I think a more developed news page could potentially make for a great front page for the site, pulling in news posts as well as active forum threads, relevant posts from other Doom blogs, new or popular project uploads (and devlogs?), and other things like that to really make it a visible hub of community activity. In the meantime, though, it makes sense to have the forums themselves be the home page, since this is where most of that activity happens.
  3. Have you played The Community Is Falling 3?
  4. I think you should be able to use a decorative portal on the sloped sky ceiling there without it causing problems.
  5. Somewhere in every Doom wad is a secret broadcasting tower from which talented imps serenade you with song.
  6. I was your 666th profile view, it's a sign

  7. I like your new avatar. What is it? Did you make it?

      didn't see the  update, please ignore.

  8. It still seems pretty unlikely to me that Facebook's internal data security is worse than that of an ancient VBulletin install.
  9. New avatar is from a silly image of Kotori from Rewrite. I had been thinking of using a snarky Akane instead but here we are. Seele is probably the only person here who'll recognize any of this, but whatever. I'll probably manage to harangue Tarnsman into reading Rewrite sooner or later, at least.

     

    Rewrite is a visual novel and it's a hell of a journey -- its scope is massive and it hits on a lot of the things I loved about Madoka and Evangelion. (The anime adaptation is an awful disaster, avoid.)

      Just for this post I'm not reading Rewrite for at least another six months.

      You wouldn't have read it anyway :P

      we are all in the cloud, now, truly.

      It's cute! I like it!

  10. If some areas could be reshaped and made less orthogonal to avoid the X-Treme™ long lines of sight, that would help a lot.
  11. Damn. Thanks for pointing that out.
  12. I can't disagree there! Though I tend to prefer 8-bit software mode for playing most Doom stuff, I'd definitely be interested in seeing true-color and GL rendering in EE for the potential it'd bring for modding and level design.
  13. While there are still some major features in waiting, the wishlist of major features is quite a bit smaller today than it had been in the past, what with the semi-recent completion of portal clipping, UDMF support, edge portals, and so on.
  14. Which one do you like more? Making what you yourself are interested in is almost always going to give better results (and be a more enjoyable process!) than making something based on what someone else wants. Personally I'm not sure that any of those descriptions are really going to make for a fantastic map, but trying it out and seeing how it comes out so you can do better next time is just part of the learning process.
  15. very childish how the doom trolls are interested when i post about over rated unfair video games, but not when i post about over throwing the unfair governmenmt...
