  1. Well I finally have a permanent place to stay for the time being. I cannot say whether squonker projects will be as rapid fire as they were at the beginning of the year, but I can say more are on the way. Cheers.

      That's great! Best of luck for you and your family

  2. Looks like the website is still up, but the thread is deleted(?) and it wont show up on google search for whatever reason.

      Yeah, the thread's missing and I can't get it to show up on Google either.

      The thread was merged in with this thread to cut down on pinned threads. The uploader front end is on the 2nd post. 

       

  3. anyone know what happened to idgames upload?

  4. A few of you might be wondering where the next Squonker project is, while the team did start it, I am not sure when it will be released due to my current living condition. Recently our house was put up for sale and the real estate company wanted my family out. In so few words, I’m homeless. I am staying with a friend currently so don’t worry about me, but until I find a place to live it may be difficult for me to work on maps or find the motivation. Thank you for understanding.

      Wow, that real estate company are a bunch of fucking pricks. Best of luck on finding a new place to live, Egg!

      Same here. Hope you find a way to get back in the saddle again soon.

  5. Just realized I've already released more maps this year than last year, gonna make this my most prolific year yet!

      Frying up more delicious eggs... erm, I mean eggs. No I mean MAPS! Yes... maps.

  6. Something's coming next month. Hope you guys are ready for the sophomore release of the "Squonker Team."

  7. Managed to make 2 maps today, still need to monster place but I'll leave that for tomorrow.

      The Eggboy's hatching some new maps? Suh-weet!

      I've had a few in the pipeline, you'll get to play them sometime next month. These recent two might be playable a bit sooner, depending on other parties.

  8. I usually hate depth of field, but for this playthrough of Dark Souls Remastered, I turned it on, and damn, makes the game look way better.

  9. Just wondering, would anyone be interested in watching a mapper's commentary on Cold Front? I didn't include my thoughts in the text file of the original release, and this would be supplemental to that.

  10. Gonna say it, this is the best year for custom doom content since I've joined the community. Its not even close.

  11. As dated as Kingdom Hearts is, its still ahead of its time by allowing you to pause the cutscenes. Seriously, why isn't this a standard?

      I always hated this. The main culprit that comes to mind among games I love is GTA 4, but really being able to pause them is the exception, not the norm.. oddly!

      One thing I love about new consoles is you can hit the Home button and it pauses the state of the game completely for the most part

  12. Just beat Miasma. Despite Tourniquet being one of my favorite mappers, I never actually played this one. Brilliant stuff.

      I was there, he resurrected 65 times. Trust me, I'm a reliable source and my uncle works for ID

  13. Not really feeling mapping lately, maybe just need to throw out a few shitty speedmaps. Don't be surprised if I post some smelly, lower quality maps in the next few days.

    1. Biodegradable

      Biodegradable

      And I will play them with gusto!

  14. Finished combat shock 2 today, got vanguard vibes from the first 2 maps, Speed of Doom for the third, Sunder vibes for the next 2, Scythe 2 for map06, and the bonus map reinforced the vanguard influence. Really fun stuff, if not wholly original, then again, what wad isn't derivative in some way.

      04-05 are more Sunder (especially The Furnace) + 06 is I think New Gothic Movement. yeah I really liked CS2

  15. Just finished Eternal Doom. Fuck map30.

      Can confirm, I was there when he watched the walkthroughs for 10 hours straight

      its literally impossible to beat it any other way.

      lol yeah, the amount of pushwalls on that map and they dare call it a "puzzle".

  16. rub a dub dub by stewboy is my favorite midi right now

  17. Anyone else having issues with idgames today? I'm trying to upload a bug fix for Cold Front but keep getting timeout errors when I try to connect.

  18. Am I the only person that plays with auto-run disabled? I feel like uncomfortable holding shift to walk instead of run. Something might be wrong with me.

      Nah, I do the same thing. Mostly because I like walking around "slowly" and enjoying the atmosphere of some levels, and only slightly because I used to have an issue running into walls.

    3. Alper002

      Alper002

      I play with auto-run off too!

      On occasion I like walking slowly, but it's mostly just me feeling right when holding a button to go fast.

      You all play with autorun off?! Ewww gross.

      I could never resort to such slow movement.

  19. Just found out I have a Doomwiki page. That's fucking rad (please don't play anything I made before 2019).

      Super cool B)

      I only have a single mention myself :'')

  20. Finished Sunlust. Even on HMP that last map made me lose my goddamn mind. 

  21. Really enjoying Sunlust right now. Decided to play on HMP since I don't think I'm ready for Sunlust UV. Great stuff so far, I'm on map13, highlights are map09, map10, and map12. Really like how map12 foregoes the SSG and a lot of the map is scrambling around for resources and trying to find the space to use the RL. One thing I didn't expect is how non linear these maps are. Pretty much all of the Ribbiks maps allow you to pick and choose which encounters you wish to do first. Not to say Dannebubinga is slacking, there are a lot of tight combat encounters in his maps, though I find they are a tad easier than Ribbiks' though this may just be due to the balancing on HMP.

      Real Doomers play Sunlust on Nightmare Tyson-only :P

  22. Hey, kind of want to acknowledge how fucking sick it was that I got mentioned in the cacowards. Didn't want to shit up the main thread with horn tooting, so I just wanted to say I'm really proud it was mentioned at all. Didn't really imagine it getting recognized, and I hope to make something even better, and more substantial in 2021. Thanks :)

      You totally deserve it! Your maps are exactly my cup of tea and I like them a lot. I would like to have more time and discipline to review them all (I will eventually). For some reason you remind me two of my favorite mappers, AD_79 and Breezeep - I think it's because both have a very clean style and a nice sense of level design

      The stuff you've been putting out has been terrific mate. Well earned mention

  23. Doing some "location scouting" by playing some notable hell themed WADs, starting Resurgence (on HNTR, because am baby).
