    Emerald Ambush (one small map for Doom II)

    Great track, used that myself in a recent project. Really good speed to it.

  4. Taking a small break from the review writing for a short while. I'm currently learning a new skill - and I need to focus on that a bit more for the time being.

     

    I'm still doing my normal Wadazine and playtesting activities, so feel free to still contact me about those. I will probably be back to making WADarcheology reviews soon enough, as I still have tons of new footage.

     

    I also need to get this damn second megaWAD of mine released sooner rather than later.

     

    Anyway, just wanted to put out an update. :)

      Well deserved break. I'll try to fill in some more reviews in the meantime! :D

    I have surprise dental surgery Monday

    I've had this exact thing done before. If it's any consolation, I wasn't actually 'put under', they just blasted me w/ nitrous. Other than a tiny bit of pressure in your mouth, there was sincerely no pain. Anyway, wish you the best! :)

    Gardeners of Doomworld

    Hello, everybody! As I was putting out my plants to harden them, I thought to myself: "I wonder if anybody else on DW gardens?" So that's what this thread is for. Post your gardens here! I'd love to know what everybody else is growing this season. I grow everything from seed - I don't like buying existing plants, and transplanting them - there's not much challenge in that! We have a very short season up here in northern Alberta, but that hasn't stopped me! What I'm growing this year: So yeah, feel free to post what you have! Doesn't matter if you have a tiny balcony garden, or a huge garden, I'm just excited to see what you all have. PS: Last photo is of a Siberian variety of pepper that fruits under very low light conditions. Very excited to have it. :)

  11. Icedeath - 02/26/1995 - played via GZDOOM 4.1.2 Icedeath is a fun underground complex type level created by V.T. ICE. I was able to find one other level created by this author, Ice Nightmare 2. Ice Nightmare 2 seems to be a sequel of sorts to this level, but is played w/ Doom2, as opposed to this map that takes place on E2M1 of Doom1. This map is a huge sprawling underground fortress - even if you're playing at a brisk pace, you're likely to still take 20+ minutes to complete this one. The map starts you off in a bit of a hot start. You see a baron of hell immediately, as well as a plaz rifle, and a single-shotgun. I assume most people would use the plasma to cut down the beefy baron, but I elected to lead him around to get blown up by barrels instead, I found that to be more fun than just straight-up melting him w/ the plasma gun. This beginning room is a sort of hub, as there is a blue key door, and a yellow key door here. This level has a lot of traps in it - nothing too complex, though. You'll typically see the 'lower walls' type trap, or the 'open closet' type trap in this WAD. It was nice to see so many traps in a map this old - many authors of the time neglect to do so, and rely much more on incidental monster placement instead. Combat in this WAD is pretty good; things can get pretty hectic w/ the very large monster count for the time. I wouldn't call this an early slaughter-WAD, but it almost has nearly 350 enemies on UV! Much of this map is a bit messy visually. There are a plethora of misaligned textures, in some areas there are more misalignments than alignments. The map also has a bit of an identity crisis - there are tech sections, brick sections, hell textures, marble textures, etc. The map's questionable visuals are never really that big of a deal, though - as the gameplay is very engaging for the time. I highly recommend this to old-school fans, or for those doomers who are able to look past things such as poor texture alignment. There really is a good experience here; playing this has really made me want to check out the sequel to this map! Give it a shot if you've got half an hour to spare! :) Download link: https://bit.ly/3LBvp7I

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    New DM map, (DM143). Kind of a one-room concept map... Sky still needs to be added, but I think it's shaping up okay. :)

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Really enjoying White Hell right now. Great retro-styled FPS set in Finland.
  14. diharder.wad - 08/10/1995 - played via GZDOOM 4.1.2 This is a town-styled map w/ a roaming cyberdemon, much like the previous shadow.wad I played recently. This is a map by Edward Buckheit, an author active during 1995. Buckheit also produced a level called Instant Death. Instant Death is the only one of his maps on /idgames that I can find. I was not able to find diharder.wad on /idgames - this WAD was found in the massive collection of old WADs that @thestarrover published recently. This is a map that is a little bit difficult to describe, as there aren't really distinct separate areas in it - this level is essentially a large open area w/ a few different buildings situated. Almost immediately after starting the map, you will wake up a cyberdemon - this can be very difficult to deal w/, as there are so many random places that a cybie rocket could show up. I died a few times on this map to the cyberdemon - your first course of action should be to gather up as many weapons as possible - most of these are scattered around the map, often in the peripheries of the WAD. The author states in the WAD that this is based off of the movie Die Harder, and that this level is set in an airport. Other than the singular road that could be a runway, I don't really see much airport-looking features present in this map. I commend Buckheit for attempting to recreate something so ambitious, even if the end result didn't really 'blow me away' visually. I'll get this out of the way, this map is not the most attractive - mainly because of all of the misalignments. There are many textural errors in this level - mainly on the outside facades of the buildings, especially close to the windows - this is par for the course for a map of this age, I just thought I should make mention of it. Not every map has to beautiful! This map certainly plays nice enough for one to be able to look past the textural errors. My favorite fight in this map is against the singular arch-vile and a pack of lesser enemies in front of him. You'll need to quickly annihilate everything in front of the archie, as he will be very difficult to hit at first. I got quite lucky in the video, (see 10:10 of video) as he moved to the far back of the large blue room - if he stayed closer to the door, I think it would have been very challenging to breach that area otherwise. Luckily, the author was kind enough to give you a surplus of rockets. A very fun map! It can be a little rough around the edges, but what from this time period isn't? I don't think a map should be thrown out just because of some textural issues - if a map still plays 'well' otherwise, I'll still typically recommend it. This one will take you 10-15 minutes to complete, longer if you let the cybie live for too long! :) Download link: https://bit.ly/3EOQlFo

    Hi

    I don't believe saying "Yeah, a status update would have worked wonders" constitutes 'whining', but you do you. What I had said was a perfectly reasonable suggestion, and how the OP should have likely gone about doing things. I hardly think I need to report this individual to the moderation team for making a harmless thread like this. That seems a bit beyond the pale. :)
