  2. it's just people piling on maps from '94/'95 and making the site depressing to look at. Who gives a shit if a first-timer's WadEd-constructed chain of METAL1-wallpapered boxes had too much ammo in them? get some perspective you tedious bastards what if in that space was instead a diary of recent releases

    Slaughterfest WADs: Pro or Anti?

    I love slaughter levels cos you get to see a totally different skill set in action in the demos people record for them. i'm terrible at them myself but the levels are often beautiful and mysterious and often closer to my doom-y aesthetic than traditional maps are. i don't bother tackling them with saves or anything either, I feel like the bestest way to play them is to save sparingly and not in the middle of an encounter

    NNMM_10.zip "glow in the dark" NNMM_27.zip "toby young is a piece of shit" i'm so behind lol. sorry everyone these MIDIs are fairly quiet so I will release a pack of amplified versions after November's done
  9. (i like anything that's got unclear direction, deeply suspicious balance and is covered from tip to toe in the stockest of original textures or, if new textures are included, they clash like hell with the old ones) you can create new ideas in old archetypes or you can joyously create nostalgia Knee-deep in the Dead maps and that's cool by me check this level https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/m-o/npowh
  10. i often think about, uh... what's the most modern console that doesn't have an OS you need to log in to... PS2? going back to that shit, no updates, no access to money, no forced online content, just booting up a game offline and having full access to everything sweep all this stuff off my table im setting up the sega megadrive again

    How do you feel the vanilla game has aged?

    doom's got a few suspicious levels, cacodemons are boring, half the props are tacky gore and the plasma sound is too loud rating: A+++++ edit: the fact that something can be improved upon doesnt take its towering pioneer status away. it kinda reinforces it - look how close Doom was to perfection that years of first person games were so close to identical to its template
  20. having lurked zdoom forums on and off i just wanna see one of those furry mods get finished hee let me play as something fluffy i'll even use gzdoom for teh privilege
  21. noticed that when I mess around with a quick map I create something relatively fluent and doom-like, maybe not the best map ever but just a fun map with a keycard and a few encounters and etc, while when I try to do something new I spend like four months constantly adding shadow sectors to a totally unnavigable map and then sabotage it with a joke encounter. no moral

    yakfak and friends giggle
    this album is really crazy it's not gonna work for anyone thinks musical maturity is a positive trait

  23. I've provided a new music pack and a resource pack here: http://aanaaanaaanaaana.net/drop/zek_proj.zip There's eleven new tunes - let's make maps to go with them! (check this thread for descriptions of them) the resource pack contains many new amateur textures and flats along with new props and DEHACKED work to alter certain miscellanious behaviours. There's a text file inside which should be helpful! backstory: Doomguy gets trapped on a world where it's permenantly autumn. A civilization has risen and fallen in secret and he's the first to explore it for centuries. no techbases. let's brainstorm the specifics! rules and map styles: let's brainstorm the format we're gonna use but let's just say I don't wanna make something that excludes prboom+ and eternity users As a player and curator I wanna see maps that are experimental and atmospheric! there's an eleven map limit so don't be afraid to make some bizarro masterpiece - I want your strangest ideas to shine through. if you have off-kilter opinions about how the game should play or how maps should be drawn then I want this to be your blueprint. If you like to make medium maps where you super shotgun your way through about a hundred and thirty acceptably-placed enemies (grounds for automatic refusal!) then team up with someone who might have ideas that clash with yours and see what results. I'm not gonna put up a table that says which map slots have been taken because it ain't that sort of project. Simply choose a tune you like out of the pack and let the music's influence combine with the radical Doom ideas you've been storing up. thank you!
