  1. Flaws in Doom 3 : BFG Edition.

    Not all difficulty is about preciseness.
  2. Obligatory - 32 Map Community Project

    Very very beginning of my map I guess. Not even a beta release, but I thought I'd let you guys know where I'm starting from. Has a few monsters, a few beauty touches, not much else. Cheers! obligatory_2.zip
  3. Obligatory - 32 Map Community Project

    I'll start working at it again. Nothing gained with lost time.
  4. Has anybody read the "The making of Doom 3" book?

    Its a very interesting read Catpho. Its weird but kinda fascinating by merit of its own...existing.
  5. Flaws in Doom 3 : BFG Edition.

    It really is, but I do appreciate some of the vague effort put into the better models, and what I really do love is that when marketing it they treated Doom 3's masterpiece-hood as self evident and didn't act like they were fixing the game. Even if you dont think Doom 3 is good, its commendably that they treated it like it was and at least tried to make a product for the fans as well as newcomers. Its a shame that they felt pressured to change some things for the newcomers that ultimately didnt resonate well with the fans -- ie: flashlights, ammo, etc -- but hindsight is 20/20, and they really did try. I hold no malice for the people at bethesda/id for their work on the BFG edition, and at least Doom 3 is still just as accessible on Steam and such.

    I've got a copy of it, its a neat book.
  7. Share a random fact about yourself

    I don't know how to whistle or snap. I know, physically, what must be done, but for whatever enigmatic reason, I just can't do it.
  8. Obligatory - 32 Map Community Project

    Alright. Had an idea, started on the idea, decided to instead do the oblige thing, had the brilliant idea of putting the bits of the previous idea into the oblige map, was working pretty okay, coming along nicely, played good, looked good, felt pretty good about it, accidentally lost the entire oblige folder while trying to reorganize my folders. In essence, I lost the files to what felt like two and a half maps, plus my original submission, the moving halls. Nothings stopping me from just starting over, but UGH
  9. Flaws in Doom 3 : BFG Edition.

    It was released exclusively for the BFG Edition
  10. Flaws in Doom 3 : BFG Edition.

    i really dont know what you mean. Edition means "particular form of some instance" so like your BFG Edition would be like...another you. A clone of you.

    this is such a genuine compliment, almost all my defense mechanisms want to believe it's sarcastic.
  12. Trying to understand the logic of Doom 3's level design

    I don't think the walls are soundproof, inasmuch as you can hear zombie groans pretty well.
  13. Flaws in Doom 3 : BFG Edition.

    the site was taken down i think, so idk if the BFG edition had a choice but to make it an email.
  14. its very easy. There's just like a crawl space between the wall and the gate thingy, i literally just waltzed through. It's really not a big problem but it makes the map feel less polished.
  15. in MAP03, right at the start. you can just slide past the door thingies without having to press the switch. Its a small gripe, to be sure, but I thought I'd point it out.
