  1. Struggle is an upcoming single-player megawad for Doom 2 with limit removing compatibility. It features new weapon and monster replacements, edited with DeHacked patch. Some of original monsters are also slightly changed, so it's recommended to check out the info below before you play this one. Since this wad uses heavily modified DeHacked patch, it is recommended not to use other custom gameplay patches. Also, par time, which is designed for ZDoom users, is based on UV-Max playthrough, not UV-Speed. The current version is Beta 5. This version includes five more levels (27 in total), and several changes in gameplay. This time, I want to thank @loveless for providing helpful feedback during the live-streaming. :) The next version will be release candidate 1, which will include five more levels, making this mod "a full megawad". = Changelog for Beta 5 = = Screenshots = = Download Link = Click here to download (Beta 5)
  2. Struggle (March 19. 2018: Beta 5 is available)

    Thanks a lot, Eris! :)
  3. Struggle (March 19. 2018: Beta 5 is available)

    Thanks, Deadwing! You don't need to be hurry, so take your time. You can also wait for the next version with complete 32 levels. :)
  4. SlaughterMAX. RC1 available!

    As long as there's no limitation in monster count, I think there's nothing wrong with placing more monsters. And it's still possible to beat the level on UV-Max.

    Thank you very much! :)

  7. SlaughterMAX. RC1 available!

    Why not?
  8. SlaughterMAX. RC1 available!

    An updated version of MAP28, based on the @elmle's Wild-Max playthrough. While the purpose of this version was to make wild difficulty more intense, I also made some minor changes for UV. So I re-recorded UV-Max demo for it, which is 41:31 long. - Minor changes in layout to prevent some cheese strats. - Added 100 more arch-viles for wild difficulty. - Fixed the possible glitch that breaks the wild playthrough. - Increased the amount of monsters on ultra-violence from 21,542 to 28,350 Click here to download
  9. Corrupted By Chaos - Object T11

    A 70-minutes-long-FDA for this level. Recorded with complevel 9 on UV. Here are some suggestions for this level: - Architectural details, including texture usage, were designed really good to show the environment of giant, metallic warehouse. We have outside storage area, large underground container depot, and hazardous sewage canals. And every area is decorated with proper textures and lighting effects. But, speaking of which, several areas are too dark to navigate around or find items on the floor. Even if I increased gamma correction during the demo recording, it was hard to figure out what's on the floor in the dark area. - Combat is good enough to enjoy the level for an hour; I enjoyed the overall gameplay on ultra-violence. Some people may find that lack of giant setpiece with lots of monsters, especially for a level with this size, is kinda boring. But it's a good sign for players who don't like slaughtermaps. Don't get me wrong, it has some moments to make the player nervous for good. - Despite the fact that this level has outstanding architectural details, lack of custom skybox is kinda disappointing. But it's just my personal opinion; I always think that levels with lots of custom textures, like this one, should include a new skybox to make the environment even better. - Secret areas don't have significant visual hints around; I only relied on the automap to find secret areas. It would be better if there's a small hint for each secret place. - Thing 1302 and 1304 become unobtainable, once the floor is raised. Check the demofile for more information (around 56 minutes). - Demo is ended with a critical flaw; a player can be stuck behind the lift, sector 417. I check the level on DB2, and they're tagged as walk-repeatalbe actions, instead of switch-repeatable. I suggest you to either change the line-action, or fill the gap between the lift and floor. Anyway, thank you for making this level. I hope to see the updated version in the future. cpt2_antares.zip
  10. Things modern mappers do better

    First thing first. I'll let that person play Doom 2016. Then I'll bring Sunder, SF2012, Swift Death, and Sunlust. "Yes, now we know how to place monsters better than you guys. Good luck, and have fun. :)"
  11. Hell Knight VS Arachnotron, Who Wins?

    I guess you were inspired by this ongoing event on Twitter.
  12. I won't say that I didn't enjoy E3M8 and E4M8. What I didn't like, however, was that the spider mastermind was too underwhelming as the final boss of the game. Sure, it does look cool. But I would buff it with more health, more than a cyberdemon at least, faster movement speed, and lesser pain chance. For Icon of Sin, I'd make some various phases, instead of a single stage with cube-spitting giant face until the end. I'd even make the monster spawner as a vulnerable turret, instead of invisible annoyance. The final phase greets the player with ridiculously overpowered boss monster that can fly around 64 units per second, while it can spit fireballs all over the place.
  13. I've been working on something with DeHackEd for the last three years. So yeah, as long as it's fun to play, go try whatever you want.

    Someone make a t-shirt with this pattern, please?
  15. Post Your Doom Picture (Part 2)

    Knight grid (Two steps forward and one step side) is a good solution to use. But I found it a little bit hard to align the textures, especially if you're using textures with 64-units wide panels. So I'm using 3:4:5 triangle design, whenever I need to design diagonal lines in techbase level. It's much easier to align panel-design textures with this method. And of course, I also do like to use octagons, especially I need to draw columns, or lights on the ceiling. :)
  16. Post Your Doom Picture (Part 2)

    I'm not gonna lie. I still rely on designing rectangular structures, just because they're easier to draw than curved lines. This habit was even stronger when I was making early levels of Struggle; about 3 years ago. Probably I could try GZDB to use curve line tool, but I'm still happy with my good-old Doom Builder 2.

    Magic doesn't need logic.
  20. As long as I use the term "Full Megawad" to describe a wad that replaces 32 original levels of Doom 2, I'll be okay.
  21. SlaughterMAX. RC1 available!

    I don't know what exactly happened; what I did was relocating 7.5k monsters, which were hidden behind the skybox, and deleting 2.7k things in the playable area. And yes, it's unfortunate that it's hard to get decent frame-rate with PrBoom+ for this giant level. But you can still have a decent frame rate, if you run this level with GLBoom+.
  22. SlaughterMAX. RC1 available!

    Here's the updated version of my submission; MAP28. This also includes new UV-Max demo, which is 33 minutes 4 seconds long. - Optimization for PrBoom+ players, with a slight frame-rate boost. - Further decrease the time between monster teleportations in the last stage.

  23. Forum Update?

    I've found one problem with spoiler box.
