    Yeah the lighting is still being done in some of these - the hub in particular. I did some lighting today actually :)

    Just over halfway there - hope everyone is going well! We've seen some very cool maps in the discord so far, doing some playtesting and demo-sharing as we go. Hub map is pretty much done, and we have a final arena /boss map in progress too. Looking forward to putting this project together!

    Okie dokie folks, you have 4 weeks to make your maps starting today! We have about 15 mappers at the moment, but people are still welcome to join :) Get mapping!

    looks up the 8th amendment Ah! Don't worry there will be no excessive bail in this wad - unless you consider your life a price too high for release, mortal?

    Yep that would be cool, but Its also very cool to let each player make the kind of map they want. Each map will have its own unique atmosphere. If it's any consolation, the hub will have a single theme: garden of torture

    What about some Hexen Slaughtaur maps?

    We have ~10 mappers so far! On top of that I'll make the hub as it will take a bit of co-ordination with the mappers (I will be able to match map entrances to the starting areas of the maps.) unless someone else really wants to do it, in which case they can!

    wow - I didn't know that was a thing. You can download QUMP here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/p8r3d4k38fmkmrd/qump.zip

    nice! Hexen mapping is fun - lots of options (and way more textures / decorations than heretic!) Yes QUMP is the Quake Upstart Mapping project I ran last year. https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/qump.html

    Greetings Mortal, Are you ready to Map? Hexen - love or hate it, could do with a community project. DUMP, HUMP, HUMP-mini and QUMP have all been very successful at getting new and old mappers to try their hand at mapping - and now its Hexen's turn. Anyone is welcome to join, even if you've never made a Hexen map before. When? Project will start officially on the 27th of August (You can always start earlier if you like). You will have 4 weeks to make a map, then we'll have a week of playtesting and finishing touches. Mapping deadline is September 22nd. Final project deadline: Last day of September. What Do I need to Do? Make a hexen map. Can be any theme, length or difficulty. You can use ACS scripting if you like, but its not necessary. Discord Server: https://discord.gg/CK8TE2R How is this Going to Work? We will have a central hub which connects to all the maps (or 2 hubs if we get enough mappers). Some maps will be sealed off until progress is made by the player. Everyone will make a map, one person can make a hub if they like (2 people if we get enough for 2 hubs). Each map will have a single goal: This goal can be a key, a puzzle item, or a switch. Keys and switches will open a new area in the hub. Puzzle items can be used to open a new area in your map, or to open a new area in the hub, and/or we can use multiple puzzle items to unlock a final area. Maps should only have 1 key in them, as keys are for the entire hub, not just one map. There are 11 different keys though. If you co-ordinate between mappers, your maps goal can open a new area in another persons map (provided that map is currently accessible). We will use a 'first in first serve' system of claiming keys and puzzle items. You can claim keys and/or puzzle items in the discord, or message me. This project will be kept track of in Discord (a free chat program which you can use through your browser or desktop/mobile). Discord allows us to easily organize things, have a separate channel for each persons map and generally keep track of what's going on (and talk shit / share hexen memes whathaveyou). If you don't want to use discord, that's ok, but it will be harder to co-ordinate with you and we strongly advise trying discord as it makes life easy! Use the link above to join. What Format, etc. are we using? Use zdoom: Hexen (Hexen Format) for your map. Or Hexen (Hexen Format). Use the Zdoom ACS option rather than Hexen ACS. UDMF format is also fine. Use the resources from the regular HEXEN.wad There will be no custom weapons or enemies. Jumping, Crouching and freelook will be enabled, so map with that in mind. You can use custom music (in MIDI format only) and ambient sounds (in .ogg format) if you like. We will be testing on zdoom 2.8.1 (the latest version) and aiming at zdoom / GZDoom play HELP, I CANNOT HEXEN! We will have people standing by to help you with ACS, and we have an example .wad with the script for some breakable glass that you can drop into your map, as well as examples of polyobjects and some other stuff. USEFUL LINKS: List of ACS commands (click on one to see how it works): https://zdoom.org/wiki/Action_specials More ACS commands: https://zdoom.org/wiki/Built-in_ACS_functions Descriptions of Puzzle Items: https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Puzzle_item How to Polyobject: https://zdoom.org/wiki/PolyObjects Byte Angles (for choosing the direction a polyobject will move): https://imgur.com/42C3FDM

    REKKR - V1.15

    Anyone know how to make a stand-alone .exe style thing for this? I tried to with zdoom (+ WASD controls added) but I had to use a shortcut because I don't know what I'm doing. I was able to rename the zdoom.exe 'rekkr' and change it's icon (using the JohnnyTheWolf icon), but I couldn't get it to auto accept the rekkr Iwad, so had to use a shortcut which didn't really work once the file was zipped and downloaded by someone else. Also I'm not actually sure on if its allowed to sell zdoom bundled with a wad...
