  1. What I learned about eternity engine by doing map for it:

    1. It allows put wall textures as flats, sadly no scalling or moving them in eternity in doom format.

    2. Has much more monster types like psx spectre, nightmare spectre, dog. Thing and decorative types like particle fountains and polyobjects.

    3. Has its own mapinfo and decorate lump called EDF. Not sure if second one will work with eternity vanilla format, needs test for me. 

    4. Eternity in doom has most of the boom actions, so those conveyors and monster teleporter closets are possible.  

    5. Portals are less pain to setup than in gzdoom in udmf. 

     

    What I missed in that port:

    1. Internal midi support, like fluidsynth or timidity or even opl3 simulation. Not much fan to rely on my computer installed midi software.

     

    What I need to learn:

    1. How add extra data in eternity in doom, unless I'll move to udmf to make things easier. 

    2. How 3d mid texture trick works. 

    3. How png textures work in port. 

     

    I don't what to say more. I'm quite pleased to try mapping for this port, it has the most things what people want have for prboom+. I'll share map after week or two if mapper's block won't hit me. 

    P.s I'm not much of expert, just casual user and mapper.

      I think the 3d midtex is simply a linedef flag, no? So I guess you pretty much need your editor to support Eternity. There are configurations on the Internet. 

    2. Misty

      Misty

      Well, I use gzdoom builder bugfix and it has 3dmidtex thing. I meant, that I need to test it in practice on the map. 

  2. Seems you loaded wrong wad, because beta download section is messed up for Doom 64 in Doom II. Check out legacy download page for it and tell me if you're still forced to play with pistol and encounter two archviles and cyberdemon only with that gun. Judging by review, you played "red dust 1", which is slaughter wad.

      Yes... it appears that was the wad I received.

       

      Thank you!

  3. This kind of personal thing, but today I learned that my favourite and beloved teacher died. I'm still shocked, because she was very kind woman and treated us with respect, despite of our flaws. Also she tried to help me and show my writing talents to the world. Now, I just regret that I didn't pay a visit in my school after I finished it while I still had chance to meet her and now it's lost forever. So, hug your beloved ones or tell them good words, because you will never know when you meet them a last time.

      Aw man, I'm very sorry to hear that! :-( I have a few teachers I've really admired like that... I should drop them a line.

       

      Teachers can be great and influential people, and yet many times feel underappreciated. Some students complain about even the best and hardest-working teachers, they are often underpaid (at least here in the US), and even the students who admire them rarely say so to their faces. If you have a teacher who does his/her job well, tell them you appreciate their efforts! :-)

       

      (Sorry for the mini-rant... just something I feel kinda passionate about.)

    3. Misty

      Misty

      Well, ironic is that we only appreciate people and their given strength and time after they gone. 

       

      Underpaid and underpreciated teachers here is also a serious problem.

      Ohh, that's sad to hear. i Know how you must feel now, you have my condolences. Be strong.

  4. Finally I opened staying overnight at outside sessions at this summer. Sadly, these will be shorter and most likely be on weekends. Because of job and other things. Now, I'm enjoying the silence and big full moon, I missed it so much. It feels weird to write here, because these days I rarely share status updates or talk about myself that much.

    1. Marlamir

      Marlamir

      I have the same feeling. It's really awesome feeling when you just after working week laying on grass and enjoying beautiful silence night.

  5. I've never thought that at this sunny and beautiful day will come for me, but I'm at hospital with very serious problems. I hope, that they won't last for too long and I'll continue on things as usual.

      I had some kind undentified(I don't know how to write this word) infection, but I've got better through these days, so they decided to let me out of hospital. 

    3. Catpho

      Catpho

      Its "unidentified". An unidentified infection? Thats frighting! 

    4. Misty

      Misty

      Well, they did those tests, but they couldn't find disease. 

  6. Winter, you're beautiful...

      Oh yes indeed, one of the main reasons for why winter is my favorite season, save for the occasional bloodchilling temperatures.

       

      The first and last picture kick ass.

    2. Misty

      Misty

      I love dead silence on winter season, especially on the nights. Even dogs don't bark around that time. Sadly, snow here quickly melts because I live near sea. 

    3. Agent6

      Agent6

      Same, but the silence of the night works for me as well, no more people talking or shouting, empty streets with barely any cars running or humans walking, and so on, the only sounds I want to hear is the wind blowing and howls, the latter not happening very often.

       

      I haven't seen much snow here in my city either. It lasted for about a week or two back in January and another one in December after a few days of short but heavy snowing when the temperatures have reached negative values and stayed there for a while, going as low as -15 degrees from what I recall, but once the bone chilling temperatures were gone so was the snow and I've seen nothing since. I'll see what happens in March, that's when winter truly unleashes itself here for a couple of years.

  7. Random forest photo that nobody asked for.

      Misty

      Yeah, enjoying snow while is still here, because weather here changes fast :")

  8. Dear felgro, 
    We get it, you dislike all those extended things in maps/ports(I could argue with your port choice, because doomsday isn't true vanilla port), but please stop with that "vanilla friendly, crap free" stuff. People already know(who stay here a bit longer) that you're hardcore vanilla dude. So please, can you focus what really matters in map reviews like gameplay, layout, executed ideas, visuals and so on. This would be more helpful that bashing all extended things,which isn't very cool to put in reviews, because as gamer/reader I don't really want to read how you hate extended stuff and there always included text file which states compatibility settings.

    P.s There more ports who supports vanilla stuff/behaviour like Chocolate Doom, Prboom+(have you ever heard of almighty complevel 2(Doom II) and complevel 3(for Ultimate Doom) for keeping vanilla/limit-removing stuff "crap free"(I mean stays faithful to all quirks/bugs) and it's basically better than doomsday in lots of terms), Eternity and so on. 

    Screenshot is from the last review and this seriously isn't helpful.

  9. I just woke up and already screwed up my day. Now, I'm scared to check programs and photos. I hope everyone has a better friday than me. Now I'm going to do some mapping and forget about everything.

  10. Today is my birthday. I'm supposed to be 21 years old  responsible person(ha ha, nope). Time flies fast and I'm scared of getting old. Anyway, I'm happy that I'm still alive and still in this place ;)

  11. So, it seems one year passed already when I first time registered here, in this forum. So many things changed in my life, starting from college stuff and ending with mapping preferences. I know, it's not big deal for other people, but for me it's big step. I still remember how I showed my first map to only get criticized. I'm not angry at this point, I feel it was good thing. I hope, next year will be nice too as this one ;)

      I remember that too. I don't know who caused this even at this day. Maybe it was due to internet provider changes. Well, I hope it won't repeat again, because I'll be sad :'')

      @YukiRaven"Not as mainstream" is a better choice I think since "outcast" is a little bit too strong. Probably this is very similar to that I always like to say I like to be the minority. For example, I don't like those everyday cellphone games or easy games, and I tend to pick the highest difficulty if it's playable for me. Also, I tend to consider thinking is a very exciting procedure, not an exhausting procedure. People usually like to say I'm too tired to think, but stamina and brain power are two separate things to me. I may too tired to move around, but I usually won't be too tired to think.

    4. GarrettChan

      GarrettChan

      Oh, forgot to say, I'll eventually get into mapping too, but I guess it's not recently though. At that time, you'll be my senpai and sensei ;P

  12. It's one of those status updates, but I'm feeling that "I can't take this anymore longer" is getting way too common in my life. I don't don't know how to explain this thing, because everything is mixed in very bad way and I don't where I could start. I'm trying to stay strong and live my life as usual, push myself more into activities that I like, so I won't think about myself in negative way. But even my favorite activities don't make me happy anymore. I don't know, if I should continue, because nobody likes depressed people and I'm afraid that I'm one of them.

      1.) We will have to agree to disagree here. The mind is something clinical psychologists may not fully understand, but they've explored the "territory" quite a bit more than you make it sound.

       

      And besides, if I were to look for somebody who could help me develop a healthier thinking pattern better than friends can, I surely would pay for such a service, instead of beating around the bush while getting molly-cuddled by friends who lack the means to understand the overarching problems. Talking to friends is fine, but taking care of symptoms doesn't mean taking care of their cause at the same time. Like I said: I don't know if what I have to offer is what somebody else needs, and that's the best way to think about it, imo.

       

      I will say though that "professionals" who do nothing more than hand out "happy-pills" are something I take with a grain of salt.

       

      2.) Without Freud most of the recent discoveries would not have been made. Many of his theories aren't fundamentally wrong either, by the way. They needed to get improved on for sure.

       

      3.) If what you advocate here is the idea of a "god of the gaps", which means putting god everywhere where science has not yet reached, then get ready to get that undone, and I say that as a highly religious person, by the way.

    3. 42PercentHealth

      42PercentHealth

      3) No, I don't follow "god of the gaps" logic. But I am convinced that there is a non-physical component to a person; If this is correct, and if "science" denies it, then their theories will never be completely correct.

    4. Nine Inch Heels

      Nine Inch Heels

      If thoughts and behaviour-patterns were physical, we wouldn't need limbs and "organs" to manifest these "ideas" in the physical world. Science already figured out that there's a non physical component to humans and the way they think/perceive, that's why people don't do lobotomies anymore, unless they've been living under a rock.

  13. Maybe someone knows author of "Survive in Hell" slaughter megawad? I just want use those wireframe switches in project(because they would fit in theme) and I want ask permission.

      Sorry for the late answer ^^
      I'm the author of "Survive In Hell", the wireframe textures were made by me and the wireframe switch textures were made by Oxyde

      You can use them. Credit us in your txt if you use them :)

      Misty

      I will, it's not like I could run away without proper credits when project will be finished. Thank you :)

  14. Boredom in college led me into this map plan. It's not perfect(no pencil to fix small things), but it's something, scale will be larger in builder(with applied fixes) than on paper.

      It's first week of it. Later, I won't have time for my hobby due preparing for serious stuff ;)

  15. I want connect my phone and use it as wifi device for laptop, but it refuses to connect with all proper password things. I guess, I'll stay on limited connection and play more custom Doom content as usual or do more mapping until my soul tells me to go to sleep. Sorry for useless status update, I'm just feeling lonely in student hall. 

    1. leodoom85

      leodoom85

      It's weird that you can't connect your phone to your laptop and it's a simple configuration. Just put the name for the SSID (your name for the WiFi), your password for your wifi and the security encryption (it's usually WPA). Then you can connect it with your laptop and you're ready to go...

       

      ;)

    2. Misty

      Misty

      It seems it works now. Someone saved me from hell.

  16. Damn, I almost lost my mapping progress. I guess, laptop couldn't take "Final Countdown" anymore and switched off. Good thing, that I decided to save progress, so only small part of textures are lost, otherwise I would start scream and punch table. Besides that, I finally found some inspiration and later I'll post something, but no promises and stuff.

  17. Damn, sky tonight is so beautiful. I can see all stars and weather is quite pleasant to be outside. Sadly, I can't take photos of nightsky, phone is way too weak. Also, it makes me feel less stressed about future. 

     

    I can't share anything related to mapping, because I have mapper's block and I want keep my standards high. Maybe, at the weekend I'll try to do another speedmap, but no promises and other stuff.

  19. I don't know where to ask, but how long I should wait before I could upload my map in id games? I solved lots of things, but I'm not sure yet about this thing. Maybe someone has important list(as example) what stuff must be checked before file goes to archive?

      Nothing other than what's listed there. What do you have some "questionable content" in your map?

    3. Misty

      Nope, I don't think so. I guess, I'll write text file and mention all used things.

      Make sure your map is bug-free. Avoid accidental dead-ends (situations making the player stuck) at all costs.

  20. It's so pleasant to listen outside sounds. Only me, barking dogs somewhere, wind and full darkness around me. 

     

    Also, after few months I would like to put my new map in forum for criticism, but I'm not sure yet. Heh. 

    1. leodoom85

      leodoom85

      I don't have that privilege because I live in the capital and in front of a football field.....too much sounds :'(

      I can have that privilege only when I'm on vacation...

    2. Misty

      Misty

      Yeah, poor soul. My cat decided to join too and keep company together. Double joy. 

  21. My speedmapping stuff takes more time than it should. I solved a lot of issues, but one large part of the map makes my head hurt. And of course, that one texture refuses to show itself properly. I guess, if I drink more tea today, I'll find solution for the last part of that map and finish "to do list" with few tests in various boom compatible ports. 

  22. How I'm supposed to play in zdeamon servers if they think that I'm cheating and kicks me out servers and terminates my connections. 
    I don't know, maybe of second account that I created in the past, because I couldn't connect to master server or just of changed folder name suitable more for english programs or for just rare connections. Anyway, I'm just mildly annoyed because I wanted play some coop with online friend in one zdeamon server.

      alternatively create your own server and turn off the banlist without it broadcasting to the master server, if you REALLY want to play zd

      I see now. It feels weird now. I just liked two servers with supergun modification. It's ok, I have zandronum too.

      Yeah this is one of ZDaemon's many..uh.."features," as far as I know. It's not uncommon. It doesn't instill much hope of a fix either when the most recent beta is still dated October 2015, rofl

  23. It would be great if we could choose put items only for pistol start or for continous play in maps. I guess, everything would become more complicated than now. It's just a random thought while testing stuff, it's not real thing.

      sweet, looks neat! I didn't watch the whole thing but skipped through parts. really dig that big red sp_hot area that's shown near the end. I can sort of see how you'd feel the area in the shots is out of place - it looks like all the other outdoorsy/cave sections in the map are using a bunch of different rock textures. the area around the 9 min mark for example has a few different rock textures and colors, while the rocky cave sections have a totally different set, which I don't think is necessarily bad, but there is a lot of variety that you could probably make more coherent. I don't think the green area would even have to completely switch to one of the other sets of outdoor textures you're using, just maybe change some of it (like all the tan parts, not the green zimmer) to a texture that's being used elsewhere for outdoor areas.

       

      so I guess in summary my thought would be to try reducing the number of different rock textures you're using throughout the map, and include some of the textures used elsewhere in the green zimmer area to make it look more like it belongs. more generally, I think the outdoor areas would look more interesting if there was more light variety. so either some more overhangs with darker shadows underneath them, or darken the whole area and then selectively light up bits with torches + sector lighting (or dynamic lights), or something along those lines. hope that is helpful D:

    3. Misty

      Misty

      I see now. I guess, I'll try reduce some texture usage and change them a bit and get some logic and see how to transform zimmer area into some more acceptable place. Maybe put some monsters on the ground for more fun. I almost done with gameplay planning(finally), but visuals are killing my sanity.
