  1. Finally compiled all 5 maps in one intended short episode. There are still few things I must do before first public release:

    • Add end map.
    • Balance skill settings in maps to be sure it's fair for everyone.
    • Add other smaller bits, like new titlepic/interpic.
    • Test episode to be sure I didn't miss any critical bugs.
  2. I'm planning to release one of my projects in near future, hopefully in this upcoming summer - I realised that I already met personal criteria for it, just need finish that one level I started and balance/fix others before release. I'm curious how it will play for others and if reception will be positive. 

  3. I reached 25 years today. Sadly, this year I don't have any special mapping release, because life lately throws at me some challenges and diverts my attention elsewhere to more important matters... I guess, I'll leave this to the next year. In happier note, I'm glad I lived to reach this small milestone. Let's see how things will go later on :)

  4. Yesterday, 5 years ago I registered to this site and in 2 days shared my first playable level called think about it:

    Now 5 years forward my layouts look like this:

    I hope there will be more years here and I'll release more projects too.

      I definitely want to see more Misty maps in the future. :^)

      Yeah, I remember playing your first posted map back then and really enjoying it! You've made some great maps in your time here. I look forward to playing through your next projects!

  5. Day 02: cat still sleeps peacefully. Time from time he goes out, demands food and attention.

    Spoiler

    Going to share my cat and other animal pictures as way to provide some positivity from things that happening around here. I hope it will kick sort of chain too... One can only hope. Have a good day!

      Sometimes I really wish I wasn't allergic to cats.

  7. Is this me or things here are kind of stuck in stagnation in this place? That weird feel doesn't leave me for several weeks now and my own small map release was just catalyst to fuel more of this. I know, single maps don't get much unless it's so good to not skip it. I hope, it's just silent period and things might get better again.

      Not only is it summer around at least half the globe, covid is rolling back slowly in many countries, and people are more likely to take advantage of these new developments and enjoy some life out in the sun instead of brooding over a keyboard and nerding out over classic computer games...

      Not quite. An example is that here we have that goddamn Delta mutation of the virus, which it's said to be even more contagious...and people here are stubborn as fuck and won't notice that mutation until it's inside of their bodies. I wouldn't rest on the laurels yet...

      To Misty, NIH has a point where people are taking their time to stay outside as much as they can, including us doomers. Have some patience for now.

       

      And I wanna try your map and see why the difficulty is an issue to some.

  8. Okay, this is a second day of unpaid vacation from discord platform and now I realised how much I value connections and friendships I built through here, I guess that feel then you start missing someone and something is creeping in. In other hand, break from social platforms is good thing(quite ironic because I'm lurking in forum, lol), because I found myself being a bit too overwhelmed by things happening around servers and it's so hard keep up with everything around. 

    Anyway, I'm alright and well, most likely I'll get back at Friday or Thursday, working on things I wanted to finish for quite long time. 
    Like this full of squares map I'm almost done:

  9. Would you still release mapping project if it doesn't reflect your mapping style and ways anymore? Here's 6-7 maps project lying in my hard drive, with levels made between 2018 and 2020. Only gameplay and cosmetic changes needed to make that project sane to play, but I'm not too sure how people would react about this.

      I would definitely release them.  People grow over time, and sometimes it's fun to share how you've grown with others.  It's also a way to formally close that chapter off and move on to the next, at least for me.

    3. Misty

      Misty

      I guess, once I'm done with few commitments, I will take some time to improve some maps from that project and release it.

      This post inspired me to finally pick up iagite & the in search demo. Really fun stuff, and if the maps you have on your HD are of the same vintage as these, then i am certainly pysched to see em :)

  10. Oh wow, seems I joined this page 4 years ago. Plenty of things changed and experienced through those years, I'm looking forward for more and finally release those few projects I'm working on.

      Sure, it does... I'm almost 24 years old and I joined this forum when I was 18 years old, it's kind of funny :D

    3. SOSU

      SOSU

      So you spent 6 years of your life being a member here for 4 years...

      That's some time paradox stuff Misty :O!!

    4. Misty

      Misty

      Well, it's mostly because my birthday is really late in fall, so you get time paradoxes :"""")

  11. I live at so many nice places in this town.

      I live in those Baltic countries, we have nice nature here. 

  12. Couple of night sky pics I tried to capture with my new phone camera:

    IMG_20200530_013523.jpg

    I still need play with phone camera settings to get the best of it...

  13. To answer your question in review - you need doom2.wad presented in your port folder. Copy that iwad in thatfolder and put scythe over port and launch it. Same works with other iwads. If you don't have them, Freedoom is good alternative. 

    1. Paresh

      Thank you so much Misty, appreciate your help.

       

      Regards.

  14. It feels weird that I only need finish 1 and half map for my personal project and then big phase of testing, balancing and improving will come until my eyes bleed. After that, I'll let this project go, because it's already taking 2 years and I'm slowly moving to 3rd one. I hope it won't take way too long...



     

  15. I forgot that 3 years and almost 2 weeks ago I registered to this place. So many things and discoveries happened. I'm more mature and my mapping stuff got better... I don't how long it will last and how will everything end, but I hope I'll stay more here and finally release my first episodic project to public, besides I have few more projects to do... 

     

  16. I first time managed to capture night sky with stars properly and here's the results:

    IMG_20190810_013722.jpg

     

    Maybe those could be turned into doom sky textures with some editing and fixing.

  17. Finally, I've got job for this summer, so I'm going to put mapping and my boom project aside for the while. I believe it's for the better, because last few weeks I was running out of creative fuel and wish to continue further. I hope everything will go smoothly as warm butter on the bread.

  18. Time to continue on the nature pics share tradition:
    (those grasses in the second pic are higher than me)

  19. Spring is almost here(weather is pleasant enough to stay outside):

  20. I don't remember who said that I'm already a good mapper year or two back, when I showed never properly finished map back then, but I want say thank you. Everytime, when I feel discouraged or sad over mapping stuff, I just remember those words and continue foward regardless of outcome. 

    1. Remilia Scarlet

      Remilia Scarlet

      You really are a good mapper, though ^_^

      You are an excellent mapper :-)

      Hi, this is a late bump but i thought this is worth sharing. I was browsing old ribbiks threads for fun and i came across this :)

  21. Happy New Year, Doom community! It feels strange to look at the new date now... 

  22. 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. 

    1. BigDickBzzrak

      BigDickBzzrak

      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. 

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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.
