    SLAUGHT - MAP01 (Alpha)

    I played your map and all I can say is that you need more "light and shadows" design. Change brightness values between sectors and try to add some geometry that could create shadow casting illusion with some slant linedefs across rooms and corridors

    Doom 3 Retro - Texture Organizer

    If anyone does try this thing and finds any bugs, let me know so I can try to fix them. If anyone has any suggestions of features I could add to this, let me know too, I could add them too.

    Doom 3 Retro - Texture Organizer

    I downloaded and started using "Doom 3 Textures for Classic Doom" Retro pack and found that all 1600+ textures were a little bit of a BIG LOT to go through once every less than a minute to choose a texture for a given linedef. You need a llight, a door, a flat, a switch, water, slime...? Anything, you'd have to browse all textures ordered only in alphabetical order. Now, GZDB does offer the option to have textures added to "groups" of textures, and the original textures from the IWAD are pre-defined in these groups. I wanted to have all the new Doom3 textures added to those groups, or even create new specific groups for those new textures. The thing is, the tools to achieve this, that are built into GZDB are a f**** joke, and would take a lifetime to get it done. So, I set out to "make" my own. Here's what I did: Now, this thingy here will: * Let you choose which directory to start browsing .pngs in * Remember that directory for future uses of the same tool * Let you assign textures to 15 different groups, and one more defined as "User1", so that you can manually rename it inside "Doom_texturesets.cfg" * Write on disc a new file called "Doom_texturesets.cfg" that you can use to replace the existing one with your new one * Reload upon reopening the tool, the previous version of texturesets so you can: - continue your work - browse lists as there are in their current state and see what you added where I intend to release this under "(CC) Creative Commons" licensing, so that it stays free and accesible to anyone. Here are the links, in case anyone finds this useful: Installation executable: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m_nGyajKaADNVFnYal1827c6QfAYZqQt/view?usp=sharing 7zip Pack with sourcecode and installation executable: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LJkrFxdfFXy_TD_WrQYZQpAYCPsiGjoD/view?usp=sharing When I'm finished going through all the textures and have them organized in those "groups" I'll post my custom "Doom_texturesets.cfg" here on the forums, so anyone else can take advantage of that too. Cheers!

    Doom 3 Textures for Doom

    Hello everyone. I've been fiddling around with the "texturesets" file and having to go through 1600+ textures and group them up is a huge amount of work. The current available tools, namely GZDB's built-in menus and forms are much of an obstacle rather than a help. So, what I did is extract all the contents of the pk3 and started to build my own tool to create a new "Doom_texturesets.cfg" file. I'm doing it in VB6 because I know a lot of it and because I like VB6. With this tool you can go through all the textures in a folder and add them to a group. When you're finished going through all of them, you can generate a .cfg file and replace the existing one with the one you generated. This is how far I got already: I plan to release the source code and an executable version here, so anyone could take advantage of this, or modify it and improve it in any way possible. Cheers!

    Doom 3 Textures for Doom

    Hello. I downloaded and started to fiddle around with this PK3. I really like what I see, but I find that textures aren't "ordered" or "categorized" in any of the regular groups GZDB has, or any others. If I took the time to categorize every single texture into one of the groups/categories available, could I export that categorization so anyone else could benefit from that? Just wanted to know that. Dudes who built this should have a fucking gold statue built of them on phobos. The real phobos, marsian moon.

    Marble1.wad - my new project

    I know what you mean Misty, I'll try to apply different hights for the sake of "look and feel" in the next map on the set. Hey, I got that javascript to trigger while editing the post on firefox, I had problems with it on chrome. flag-up for the mods!!

    Marble1.wad - my new project

    Ok, misty. I'm interested more in the architectural and detailing "look and feel" of the map, rather than the gameplay. I try to do things in a realistic/"it could be a real place" kind of concept. And about how scarce monsters and ammo/weapons are, it's supposed to be the first map of the game, I guess it should be like that. Thanks for the tips, I'll keep all of those in mind!! PS: how do I insert more than 1 screenshot? Can't seem to get that right, wich I did in previous posts I made...

    Marble1.wad - my new project

    I'm working on a series of Marble/Hell themed maps. This is the first one. Very easy, very simple "corridors and rooms" style. I try to keep a stylish+detailish kind of effort to it. This map starts with a lot of pistol action, lost souls only around, in the middle comes a shotgun, and a few demons and imps here and there. The big finale with a Baron and a cross-line map ending. I'm aiming to a 3~5 map set, it will derive from pure marble into more hellish/rock kind of texture sets. I did it in GZDooMBuilder and it's done in UDMF format. A few screens: and the .wad link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Anx23-M2JKLhrkKn6EC-__T_p7BK Cheers!
  11. doesn't anyone think it isn't just by pure chance or accident that the swastika went on fullscreen, repeated at either side of the presentation, when the game was being played?? just that exact moment had to be seen on the screen???? +1 tinfoil hat for me, pls!! :D

    How to form a plan in chess?

    I play chess online against other ppl on chess.com. I use the 'free' service they offer. After the game ended, you're presented with a simple (not 'deep') analysis of your moves. On every 'blunder' or flat out 'mistake', you're given a '8-10 moves' alternative, showing you a better way to resolve a tight situation you made a mistake with. You could possibly identify that situation at future games and have in mind that alternative the computer showed you. Sometimes the computer can't 'understand' where you're going to, or what you're planning, and will declare a 'mistake' where maybe you were luring your opponent in or something, but pretty much it makes sense when showing you an alternative to your moves. I found this method to be very good for learning how to identify 'game stages' and things that happen routinely in a game and have a 'map in my head' of possible things to do to have an advantage over my opponent. that's my 2 cents. cheers!

    Doom 3 Textures for Doom

    I downloaded the pk3 and set it up in DB2 as a resource. Then tried to use the textures in a wad but couldn't, they were all 32x32. I guess I should wait for you to make a different version with the textures in various sizes so they can be used in a map.
