    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Another WIP that I dropped. I wanted to make an abstract city (and still plan to) but let go of this original version that didn't get very far. Also: Dumpster imp is a concept I'm still VERY interested in using.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    I disagree. Doomguy (next to the story itself) is the least important aspect of the original Doom and Doom 2. Although, now that you mention it, a short film in first person, kind of like hardcore henry, would actually be really cool. Wouldn't be into a full film based on that concept though.

    This guy sees what I'm getting at. Anyway, I would love to see a team of marines. And it would make a lot of sense considering Aliens inspired Doom and it was originally going to be a game adaptation of the film in the first place.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    I've already watched this. But this sort of storytelling only works in a game. How would you write dialogue for this character? Would he just be silent and punch shit? Or would he spout annoying 1 liners and movie references because he "doesn't give a shit." Yeah, it wouldn't be interesting in a movie. Although, a Doom movie completely in first person would be kind of cool. Another thing I'd like to note is that I said Doomguy. In the second half of my post, where I talk about doomslayer I say that the Doomslayer is still a representation of the player's own motives. A wink and a nod to the player, not fit for a film character, necessarily.

    I don't know, I wouldn't mind. Doom has always been about the world, not the protagonist. Doomguy's was never really characterized, because he's just an avatar. If the movie seriously wants to have a main character, it cannot be Doom Slayer because he's not really a character so much as a walking representation of the player's feelings and relationship with the game. So in that sense, the main character could potentially be a woman, or a man, or even a group of marines, and none of them would necessarily represent Doomguy/slayer, because his place is behind the camera, not on it. So I don't see any reason why the main character cannot be a woman, theoretically the story wouldn't need to change in any significant way.

    How do YOU start a map?

    I've recently been having trouble getting maps started. I want to make maps. I love making maps. But I just can't do it. I even have ideas for how they should start. But I can never get anything down. I like to give players an immediate goal, and a number of different places to go, but it can be very difficult to start the map in an exciting or interesting way. So let's hear it, how do you guys start a map?

    Opinions on Modern First Person Shooters

    Both Dusk and Ion Maiden play like old skool FPS with some modern touches. Lots of exploration and secrets in both, and some of the suspense in Dusk is great. I wouldn't consider either "slaughterfests." I don't think it's a good idea to copy everything Doom did, because in a way, that's regression. Dusk has some great things to bring to the table. While Ion Maiden doesn't really improve the formula in any particular way, the level design is great and the sprite work is fantastic. When it comes to "modern FPS," it really depends on how it's handled. I think the first two Modern Warfare titles are ok, I didn't play them on release or anything, but MW's story is much better than it has any right to be, and the sequel has better level design. The gameplay isn't necessarily the high point, usually these games excite their audiences with beautifully detailed set pieces, and are meant to extend the game beyond the multiplayer a bit. But I don't really think "Modern FPS" necessarily fits the description you're giving. Maybe I would have agreed three or four years ago, but the genre is actually really diverse at the moment. With a lot of options for competitive or casual multiplayer shooters as well as a few great singleplayer experiences (See DOOM, Resident Evil 7 [it counts], Prey, and Dusk). It's sad that singleplayer shooters aren't as common nowadays, but the few that do come out are really cool.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Hey, here's something I was working on a while ago I will likely never finish. It was a remake of a western DM map I made many about a year ago. It included a destructible window that had 3 different levels of damage (you could not shoot through it unless it was at the final level). I never got much further than this saloon. I was intending to make a deathmatch map with great gameplay flow as well as visuals. For instance, if you run off of the second floor onto that armor pick up, you are in an immediate path to the exit door. I design all of my death match maps so they can play without jumping. The map(set) was intended for Zandronum, but the screenshot is taken in GZDoom, because I can't find my Zandronum screenshots for the life of me.

    Wild West Deathmatch

    hm? this is pretty interesting, I actually started a western themed DM pack a long while ago but never finished it. Good luck to you.

    90s FPS Protagonists

    These are both more recent examples. And I don't have a problem with protagonists that talk. I'm talking specifically of 90s FPSs.

    90s FPS Protagonists

    completely agree.

    90s FPS Protagonists

    I think 90s FPSs are great. The fast visceral combat, the complex, sometimes maze-like map design. But I absolutely hate most FPS protagonists. You know, the ones with "attitude." I prefer the strong silent type. I just find characters like Duke Nukem and Lo Wang eye-rollingly unfunny and lacking in any sort of charisma. Perhaps I just can't understand the appeal because I wasn't there at the time. Anyway, what do you guys think of 90s FPS Protagonists. I understand that I'm probably in the minority here, but I still want to hear your opinions.
  14. haha, BROCKHAMPTON might be somewhere on mine now, as well. I think if I were to rewrite this now, Tyler, The Creator's Flower Boy would replace the Ecstatic, and Demon Days would replace Plastic Beach (but those 2 could go either way for me, tbh) I might also replace The Impossible Kid with Atrocity Exhibition (Danny Brown) or Doris (Earl Sweatshirt). The Doom album is also interchangeable with Madvillainy. I'd likely never change To Pimp a Butterfly because it's my favorite album of all time. Good picks though, can't say I've listened to a lot of Tool or Aphex Twin.
  15. Haven't played anymore of it, as of now, but I'll get back in soon. I just wanted to mention how much I like the enemy variety. I feel like I'm seeing a greater number of enemies than I'm used to early in a mapset. And while some of the sprite edits are a little standoffish, I think it adds to the charm.
