    Share your past wholesome moments with fellow Doomers

    I have far too many to share honestly, So instead I'd like to throw a huge shoutout to, in no particular order, @Jimmy, @Eris Falling, @Decay, @Nevanos, @Major Arlene, @ukiro, @Bauul, @Liberation, @Remmirath and @Bridgeburner56 for helping me through the toughest period of my life, battling depression and all that jazz. You've all had a profound effect on my life and I'm eternally grateful. :) Some other wholesome moments of note: Jimmy needed a way back into the UK so I offered him a place to stay. The intention was for it to be a temporary stopgap but between him being the coolest housemate a Doomer could ask for, covid also happened, definitely curbstomping any intention of it being a quick lodging heh. Jimmy's also been a fantastic musical mentor! It's been rad working alongside him in MIDI composition, map creation, and just generally hanging out! I've learned so much about composing music thanks to not only Jimmy, but Eris and AD_79 too, between them, their willingness to spend time explaining concepts, listening to pieces I've written and not only advising how to improve it but the theory behind why these improvements work, has been instrumental (get it? ;P) in learning. The wonderful people I've met here and gone on to meet IRL (many mentioned above!) have always been fantastic to hang out with and I can't wait to arrange more meetups when covid isn't such a strain on daily life. Our meetups have been some of the highlight moments of the past couple of years, from just drinking and chatting all day, to going to arcades, quakecon and more! The Eviternity Team, who pushed me and motivated me by working as a team, these fine people gave me purpose and positivity during a time I had absolutely nothing else good going on and together we put out something I'm still proud of today; how has it been over 2 years since we put that wad out already?! Everyone on my discord server (and other doom discord servers) always being positive and motivating about one another's work, but despite the positivity, always being willing to make suggestions and providing eachother advice on how to improve. It's especially wholesome when you see someone spend a large chunk of time showing a newer mapper the ropes and building up their enthusiasm alongside their knowledge. All in all I've got hundreds of small stories and generally wholesome moments behind me, but I'd be here for days, if not weeks if I recollected them all and documented them, heh.

    Cyberpunk 2077 [first-person RPG]

    This was easily one of my most enjoyable single player expieriences in the last 10 years.

    I think the DOS related discussion would be better suited to a thread of it's own instead of this release thread. Absolutely and utterly incorrect. We spent many an hour optimising Eviternity. Just because it doesn't run in some ancient environment it was never designed for doesn't mean we didn't attempt to put out a polished and optimised end product.

    Most overdone/played-out Doom arguments?

    All of them. They collectively amount to why I rarely spend time here these days, since that checklist summarises 90% of new threads that aren't releases.

    There's also a reason games are open world without any level based structure. There's also a reason it's in a secret map slot. Can't please everyone, some rate that as the best map in Eviternity. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The DWIronman League dies to: Eviternity

    That's the first and last time I use youtube's built in video trim tool. That took well over 24 hours to re-process the video.

    Eviternity demos [-complevel 11]

    Given this was built, tested, improved, and shipped in 11 months, with two months of those being in the public, it's not surprising. Besides, nobody plays coop. (I know this statement might be hotly contested by a select few, but seriously, coop is borderline dead these days. Certainly not popular enough to justify expending numerous hours fine-tuning and testing with a fine tooth comb given how when it is actually played everyone rushes through at the speed of light anyways.) It was hard enough to get our own development group in a coop session together for testing thanks to widespread timezones and commitments. Not many of us at all had enough time to sit there and play for 5+ hours straight and log every minor issue we found - this is made even more difficult in a coop environment as it's even easier to miss "broken" things, since no individual person is going to participate in every encounter. MAP32 wasn't even started until two thirds into Eviternity's development cycle, so it's testing phase was especially short, and quite possibly only got one coop test session, possibly even none before the initial release.

    Given how this thread feels like a virginity confessional, yea. 😂
  13. Then you've likely played a shallow pool of games or cling onto the past too intensely.
