  1. I know what the BFG 9000 can and can't do. It kills enemies with 4000HP in two shots. So what is it that you want? Want us to do the the research for you, or what's the idea here?
  2. stats can be found in the doomwiki.. use google, do some math, consider that versatility matters because numbers aren't everything. Done...
  3. Look, mate, that Raygun looks like something kids would play with at school... The BFG 9000 is where it's at. The BFG 9000 is the supreme weapon of extreme hellish annihilation. Got it? Good... ;-)
  4. Alright, had a look. I like the visual changes and additions overall. Map is a lot more "moody" now. One small thing I would like to point out is the lighting in the Baron/revenant room. The blue firesticks there seem to have quite a small "light radius". It might be a good idea to extend that light radius and maybe fiddle with the overall lighting in that cave section just a little. Other than the blue firesticks, I think the map is in a good spot, compared to its "base material". The floor detailing in the final room is nicely done as well, if you want, you could try and work with the texture alignments of that floor detail a little bit, to squeeze some more "realism" out of it, or perhaps try some different textures there. But only if you want. It plays properly, I didn't find any mechanical issues that would break the map. That being said, I think it's done in terms of all the important aspects. :-)
  5. [Ramble/Vent] Descriptors (in gaming) that I would like to see gone for good.

     

    I really miss the days when people just said "shit" in case something was shit, or "asshole" when somebody behaved in such a manner. Sure, it wasn't the most most appealing choice of words back then, and it certainly isn't today, but it seems that's just not good enough for some people anymore.

     

    Today terms like AIDS, cancer or gay are being abused to describe a negative (gaming) experience, and words like autist, or tourette are being flung at people while the general purpose expression "fuck" is regularly thrown into the mix as well. Some people seem to be utterly unable to compose comments with less than 40 words without using at least one of the aforementioned terms for the heck of it, or because it's cool, or whatever...

     

    Looking at people suffering from cancer for example, the use of a disease which is most likely deadly -or permantly lowers the quality of somebody's life a lot- as a descriptive term is neither cool, nor smart... It's disgusting to no end, and more than slightly stupid. There, I said it. I seriously wonder if any of these "cool kids" who regurgitate that garbage on a daily basis have ever seen, or at least thought about what life's like for people suffering from tourette or autism for that matter. But don't you dare confront any of them with their poor choice of words. In a best case scenario you'll get the "excuse" that "it's just words". Tell that to the guy next door whose wife is spending the rest of her life, which usually means a few months, in a hospital. Go ask a homosexual person what goes on in their mind, when they see somebody use a term that describes their way of life to emphasize how "bad" something is.

     

    This bullshit that somehow makes its way out of some people's mouths constantly... Bah!

      As someone with Autism, It definitely irks me that Autist has became one of the go-to insults in modern times.

      I've always been of the mind that words and statements can only hurt you if you allow them to. I personally don't approve of some of the dumbass terms people use, but among friends or in certain environments I see nothing objectionable about saying 'horrible' stuff. People could do to be a bit more reserved with their language in a public setting or on social media or whatever place where lots of random people can tune in to what you're saying - I think it's counter productive to throw these terms around, not because it offends people, but because it only serves to cheapen your point (if you have one) at best and make you look like a thoughtless moron at worst. There's a time and a place for that kind of banter. Just my 2c!

      In case there's any doubt based on my post, a part of me dies every time I see someone whos probably like 13 commenting "OH MY GOD, CANCER!! AUTIST!! SO CRINGE!!" in a public forum or comment section because it's a shame that language is what's 'so hip and edgy' right now, but keep in mind these are just stupid kids tossing words around without realizing anything beyond that. Most of them will grow out of that nonsense and those who don't will never be taken seriously by anyone with half a brain or more, so don't let it bother you in the "damn, what the hell are these kids going to grow into?" sense because it's just a phase 90% of the time!

      I get what you're saying, at the same time though, there's enough evidence of supposedly mature people around, who never got wise and probably never will.

       

      It's also not about things that get thrown around among a small group of mutual friends who know one another well enough for that to be a non-issue.

       

      It's about the constant use of this crap publically, and it's everywhere. I can look past a kid's lack of knowledge or awereness with relative ease, but an adult? Nope, sorry, can't do that if said adult can't form even two sentences without employing these terms.

       

      Just to be clear about it, there's nobody among my family or my friends suffering from cancer, so I could look past that term without feeling personally hurt just fine. But the moment you yourself are personally affected (directly or indirectly), looking past these things isn't that easy anymore, and that in and of itself is enough to make me shake my head at times.

      When I see people fall back on the terms you mention (especially using Autism as an insult), I think to myself that they lack any higher brain function to come up with better, more creative insults and aren't worth the breath I'd waste telling them such. It would probably go over their head anyway.

  6. no
  7. So who needs to grow up here? The few people who quote pictures everybody's already seen? Or is it the larger number of people who complain about having to look at the same picture several times over, because a select few couldn't be bothered to properly quote/edit their comments in everybody else's interest? I don't think you actually understand it at all. It's annoying, but because people can have to scroll past all the images to see something they haven't seen already. This isn't rocket science, or is it?
  8. That' probably impossible to tell at this point, since a new trick to break some maps has been discovered most recently, and it remains to be seen for which of the maps it will be applicable and how much time it will save ideally...
  9. Some more lighting, and I'll consider the room and the fight in there done: Perhaps you'll be happy to hear that it's possible to mark somebody else's text, and a small "button" will pop up that says "Quote this". It's highly recommended to use that feature instead of cluttering up the Forum pages with the same content several times over, because frankly, it can get quite irritating at times, especially when somebody quotes not only one but several pictures at once. That aside, you could always delete text or pictures from quotes, that's also an option that I would like to see getting used by a certain group of "suspects".
  10. Reloading wasn't much of an issue for me. Even though 26 certainly doesn't count as "old" either, Doom was the first FPS I ever played, and that set the baseline for me. Later when Doom 3 and quake 4 came out, the reloading didn't bother me too much, since these games were made so that reloading wouldn't be a problem. Making a habit out of reloading whenever I was certain I wouldn't need to shoot the next two seconds came naturally, but that aside I think Doom plays better without any reloading at all. ;-)
  11. Ooooh are you "looking"? ;-)
  12. I collect: -High heels (Who'd have thought?) -Kitten gear for obvious reasons. -Bullet hell shmups and their OSTs, because those have lots of variety, and they're wonderful.
  13. And here's one FDA in which I overlooked the SSG and couldn't kill everything (Unless I would have gone for chainsawing the cybie, heh): test_NIH_FDA.zip Here's a second round in which I found the SSG and killed everything: test_NIH_2ndDA_02.zip Both demos made with PrBoom+ and -complevel 9 (messed that second file name up, but w/e ;-)) Nice little map that would fit well into an early slot of a bigger set. Out of 4 secrets I managed to find only 1, or was it two? I don't remember. It played relatively relaxed, and had some nice visual touches to it as well. Good use of sound propagation near the crate area. I liked that a lot conceptually. When you give out weapons like the SSG, it might be a nice little satisfactory touch to allow players to mow down some fodder with it. I always appreciate that. I'm usually not a fan of shotgunning mid-tiers, but since the real estate was ample yet felt somewhat limited, the grinding of the bigger game didn't feel too uninteresting. Overall some areas feel a bit "underpopulated". Given the size of the map, it's probably possible to double the monstercount without it feeling slaughtery at any point in time, but this is more a subjective POV of mine. Don't hesitate to attack players from several directions. Most of the time, combat is very one-directional. The map could benefit from spicing things up a bit. Some points that bugged me were chainsawing a horde of pinkies (you can see that happen in both demos) without there being any repercussions whatsoever, which turned the entire situation into a waiting game. In the very same room, scattering all the rockets and the respective rocket launcher across all the closets, so people need to run zig-zag to pick up the supplies, is something I'd argue most people aren't fond of (that would include yours truly). A more elegant solution would have been a seperate closet where things are put in a smaller spot, thus making the "looting" a lot more convenient.
  14. This looks quite promising, judged solely on the screenshots. I'll make sure to give this a try as soon as I can. A small recommendation for your dropbox link: Replace the "0" at the end with a "1". It makes downloading the wad a bit more comfortable. :-)
