    How to go from "I should do this" to doing it?

    The trap here is that most people who have depression aren't aware of it at all, for a very long time even, or rather their mind tells them that everything's "okay enough". Obviously we don't you know you personally, but if people you actually know personally suggest that you may have depression, or if there's any indication that you're developing in a direction that seems concerning to your friends, then it's perhaps something worth looking into. If thinking makes you less sleepy, and for some reason your mind is not at ease when you go to bed, I would suggest having a look at what it is that you think about, and how it makes you feel. Discussing these thoughts with others may also help you reflect on those things, and perhaps you learn something about yourself that you otherwise wouldn't have figured out.

    How to go from "I should do this" to doing it?

    Unless it's a depression that's paralizing you in a way, you might be trying to bite more than you can chew. Let's say you wanted to get in the habit of doing some workout regularly, don't go for like a half marathon which fails and then be disappointed in yourself. Instead do some sports for one minute straight. One minute is easy, and getting past that with a feeling of success (having "done the thing") is worth far more than failing at a half-marathon. The next minute you'll work out is gonna be easier, because you know you can do it, so do it, and when you feel like you can do more, add another minute. You might think that working on a minute to minute basis doesn't do much, but this super low "entry-barrier" leaves you with virtually no excuse not to try it. Obviously you can't socialize for one minute and then leave your friends to their amusement, but instead of going out late-night, dancing holes in your shoes and getting drunk like there's no tomorrow, meet up with a friend at a cafe, have a relaxed chat and a slice of pie (which you can later "burn off" by going for a walk or so). Try replacing sweets with fruits and/or yoghurt, basically anything that isn't 99% sugar and tastes good is fair game. Going to bed earlier comes all by itself when you do sports.

    Anyone else feel you should care about politics but you don't?

    It's too late to just make stuff simple. Simple would have been possible to establish like 150 years ago or earlier perhaps, when the whole global situation was much less convuluted. Now we're left with people who are more likely to drive the whole show further down the shitter rather than forfeiting their position of power. That's one of the reasons why we can't have "simple".

    If you know nothing about what's going on to begin with, how are you ever gonna vote for something you believe in? Also nice defeatist attitude... You don't need to know all there is on a global scale, but if what you want is to take some responsibility then you're better off spending some time watching news, reading articles and whatnot, so you're at least somewhat educated on what's going on in your country. Bad things happen when good people do nothing.

    What does your Doom folder contain???

    My folders contain several hundred unzipped WADs, a whole lotta screenshots and hundreds of demos, worth several gigabytes of diskspace...

    Are Id reluctant to (re)introduce certain enemy types?

    There are several reknowned speedrunners in this community who play classic doom keyboard only, meaning slower turn rates than you would achieve with a mouse, and they don't seem to have any issues whatsoever with abundant hitscans, or very fast movement and such.

    Best/Worst maps in TNT

    Simple: Mount pain has some fun parts in it, habitat has none. That is my entire case LOL.

    Best/Worst maps in TNT

    Mount pain is probably one of the best maps in TNT. Habitat on the other hand.... Habitat gets a "no" from me.

    How to properly improve layout skills?

    What tourniquet said. Unless the door that's put in place must be used to keep the player away from an area before a certain condition has been met, doors are best avoided. There are probably more interesting ways to seperate areas or compartmentalize maps than doors, is what I'm thinking. Corridors are much the same, because usually they offer next to nothing of value as far as gameplay is considered, no matter how good the corridor looks. Using corridors to connect different contrasting texture themes is something I can get behind, or maybe that corridor can also be a vantage point (atmosphere for example, like ribbiks said), but those aren't things actual rooms can't do as well.

    Things a good layout doesn't have: -An overabundance of doors and corridors.

    Stratospheric Domain - My first Hexen map

    Even though I agree that people will cheat if they want to, it's still reasonable to have jumping disabled so that people at least know that it might sequence break something in the map, for example.

    Annoying bug in all of my doomgames

    @Doom4Ever, what people are trying to tell you is that you may switch weapons with your mousewheel without being aware that it happens. For example, if your mousewheel is too loose, then that might cause you to swap weapons unvoluntarily. If I were you, I'd play with a different mouse for an hour or two, and if the problem is still the same, then you know it's not the mouse. However if changing to another mouse solves the issue, then it's your mouse that's the problem.

    What is the best map you've ever made?

    I think you and I should make a map together at some point. Nothing big or amibitious, just good ol fashion shooting stuff

    Voodoo doll death ending when you kill a monster

    People will complain even when there's a reason such as story telling. It is what it is. It isn't. You'd still need to actually inflict enough damage to the player to make sure doomguy dies and doesn't become a "zombie", which is an actual phenomenon that can happen when voodoo dolls are involved in a certain way. Also it doesn't solve the problem that you'd still need to get the whole chain of events going with some sort of trigger.

    Voodoo doll death ending when you kill a monster

    voodoo dolls can't exit the map for you (as far as I'm aware)

    Voodoo doll death ending when you kill a monster

    The problem is simple, some people throw a fit the moment they hear the word death exit. And because of this they think death exits are "bad design", which is why they wanna force their ideal of not using any death exits on everybody else. Don't listen to those folks. Build your stuff the way you want to. If you end up liking what you made, somebody else will.

    Voodoo doll death ending when you kill a monster

    That's your opinion, and as such nowhere near an objective truth. Let people build things they wanna build and stop forcing your ideas on others. Simple as that. As if there was a problem with a death exit on the last map of a set... Good lord, develop a sense of logic, will you please?

    Voodoo doll death ending when you kill a monster

    IIRC it's a boss fight, so chances are nothing comes after, also what's the problem? If you don't like it, just don't play it.

    I'm just the person who uploaded it. Don't let that fool you

    What is the best map you've ever made?

    According to the number of downloads and the sheer plethora of deaths Fonze experienced, this is the best map I have made so far, assuming that maps made in cooperation with somebody else count:

    DOOM Eternal Gameplay Reveal Impressions

    looks like it got some interesting stuff going on for mobility, so that's a plus in my book.
