    Every possible theme using IWAD textures?

    That's going to be hard, no combo-themes. You'd think that after all those years, people would already have figured out all possible themes with native assets.
  2. Well, you should really read this, because philosophers have already been thinking about this subject for a few hundred years now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialectic @GoatLord

    Didn't know they played Black Metal on AdultSwim...
  4. That's true, yes. But that still means that in this moment, science is the best explanation for reality. Best not to dwell on such paralyzing thoughts like the inability to properly model reality or whether it's even possible to figure out "everything" because that makes existential dread set in on my part.
  5. Evolution is a rock solid theory. What isn't rock solid is the details about how it happened. So whether birds stopped having dinosaur-like teeth 67 million years ago or 68 million years ago. Or whether the first land-crawling fish crawled on their front limbs or their back limbs. Yes, there's controversy about evolution. But only about the boring minute little details no one except biologists and kids that watched Jurassic Park too many times care about. And we're getting dangerously offtopic here, so I'll just drop the magic word... d i a l e c t i c s

    To the lad that fed the ducks bread... I'm sure you had the best intentions - but ducks didn't evolve to subsist on bread. A duck can live for 7 years or something? But most ducks that live near humans only live for 2 or 3 years due to malnutrition from pretty much eating bread instead of water plants and grass. Turns out if you wanna feed the ducks, just throw your leftover lettuce or something into the water.

    I think I read an ancient interview with an ex-Mayhem member who was asked what it was like to work with such infamous and controversial figures like Dead, Varg and Euronymous. The reply was something like "Those idiots took black metal way too serious, black metal is about drinking beer, watching horror movies and shouting Satan."
  8. Maybe you should try having more than two massive political parties in your country. Two party systems suck. You'll even see it in videogames. If you want to balance an MMO, you introduce three factions. Also climate change is a horrid subject to debate on, just like evolution. Science doesn't lie, you don't get to have an opinion on science. Reality is what it is, science shows what it is, and thinking reality is different from what it is won't get you anywhere except living in lalaland.

    Horror is best used in Quake, not Doom. Now Quake never really delivered on its Lovecraftian promises, but it certainly was a scarier game - because it made monsters so much stronger. Put me in an arena with some pillars and a cyberdemon and okay, is cool mate. Put me in an arena with some pillars and a shambler and I get sweaty palms. You want horror? Imagine what id could do by taking some influences from actual horror series. You're stalking the ogres and grunts, while something that you can't kill even with a BFG hunts you.

    New locations - concept art discussion

    God let Daisy die and didn't do anything. I think that God should be very very afraid. Because Doomslayer does not care about theological problems regarding predestination. He'll rip and tear until the entire afterlife is double-dead.

    Think bigger mate. You can make an oldtyme military base that has some scifi modernization. Or a temporary techbase in a forest with old ruins, lots of trees, stone structures and the occasional techbase "mobile home".

    What are you listening to?

    I've begun listening Swans since I hear it's kind of the ultimate "everything in one" band for people that like the weirder, darker and heavier part of music. If I was ever stuck on a desert island with only the discography of one artist/group, right now I'd go with the Beatles, but that's less about me really liking their stuff that much and more about them having put out such a wide range of high quality sound over such a long period of time. If we can go weirder, darker and heavier and still retain a high level of quality, I'll happily exchange the Beatles for Swans. After all, Swans strongly influenced bands like Godflesh, Khanate, My Dying Bride, Neurosis and Napalm Death so this shit's gonna be h-e-a-v-y, I think/hope.

    No Wendy's in the Netherlands. We only recently got a Taco Bell and Five Guys here in the Netherlands.
