    Overambition?

    Do you ever get so ambitious to work on a project but somehow end up abandoning it before finishing it? even though you know you can make it but you feel like it takes very long to make.

    Overambition?

    It's for the best, no reason to stick with it if you're no longer passionate about it, I like to think of them as early sketches. That said deadlines idea does sound great, It'll def force me to think of what I can come up with in a specific time frame so I don't lose interest before finishing anything, I'll put it into practice every time I work on stuff from now on, like a cp but without too many rules.

    Probably, this reminds me of my old POD mod which had a hub, and a leveling up system with upgrades and stuff, started out as a simple platforming mod but eventually grew up to have a hub with leveling and some added replay value....etc. funnily enough I haven't yet finished that one either lol.

    Overambition?

    It's not so much about skill as it is about having the energy and will to continue working on it for me, the few projects I released were nothing special, they were generally okay, and the ones I really would like to finish I can't usually keep working on, either because I run out of ideas before making them long enough or get too exhausted and slowly lose interest in them over time. I'm kind of like what Scorpius described.

    I usually do make progress, then for some reason I lose interest in it over time until I start another project and let the older one collect dust in my drive, perhaps it's my fault for not releasing demos more often.

    Overambition?

    Yeah I did submit some for comps, but was never fully satisfied with them, but at least that made me post them.

    Overambition?

    That's probably it, I think my problem is that I have an idea of what I'm trying to accomplish, but I keep thinking it's not quite there yet, especially because It's in an unfinished state, I mean I know I'm making this for myself but I keep thinking it takes very long to get it to where I want it to be, back when I made my first levels a couple years ago I didn't think too much of their quality or length...etc. Probably set the bar way too high for myself that I kept getting overwhelmed, doesn't help that I don't get enough time to work on it and can't stop procrastinating. E: Yeah, definitely going to release them in slow mode in smaller bites, don't want to feel like I wasted months of experimenting for nothing, new lesson learned. don't bite more than you can chew as you said.

    Overambition?

    2 hl projects so far this year that I couldn't make long enough, Metroid-vania style pack and Contra-themed pack then for some reason I lost interest in them over time. Every time I try to continue working on them I end up changing some minor things only. I'll probably just scale back some of these ideas and slowly release them in smaller, individual maps instead, I used to be very eager to work on maps years ago but now it feels like an exhausting and long process, was wondering if any others feel the same way or experienced something similar (regardless of the game or type of project)

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I finally got around to finishing GRIS, pretty little game, short but sweet and makes good use of its simple mechanics. Continuing Dishonored, hopefully I don't get distracted this time.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Playing Hammer, I open it at least twice a day, change some minor things here and there, then I get bored and close it then go back to cs. I haven't yet finished GRIS, or the first Dishonored, eventhough I enjoyed the first few missions of it. Arkane Studios knows how to make good system shock-esque games. I need to learn to stop procrastinating lol.

    the best looking version of doom cubed

    You can try the Doom 3 Redux 2.0 beta, it removes Sikkmod and also removes the E3 sound effects if you don't like those. also comes with a better menu UI that adds widescreen resolutions so you don't have to resort to using console commands to switch to them. Last time I tried v0.95b it had some changes like Chainsaw auto-lock and pull towards target and Adrenaline assigned to a key, it also gives you infinite stamina after you finish the hell chapter (eventhough the effect is supposed to work only in the Hell level) so there definitely were some gameplay changes. I haven't tried 2.0 beta yet so I don't know if he changed those.
