  1. I'm bending the rules a bit since it's not a megawad, but I gave the recently-released Hexen hub Realms of Cronos a whirl not too long ago. Though it's a bit of a mixed bag (mostly good though), it's got a pair of absurdly-good ten-out-of-ten maps in it: Felstoy Abbey, an ubermassive epic adventure set in a massive monastery (with some amazing side areas -- the "maze of the dead" or whatever it's called is cool as fuck), and Path of Hei'an, which has probably the most impressive visuals I've seen in any GZDoom map to date. The set is absolutely worth checking out just for those two alone. Off topic: It's funny how Helix has been mentioned in both this thread and its evil counterpart, for almost the same reason (being a strange outlier from the rest of the set). Glad to hear that someone enjoys its goofy "fuck da rules"-ness. :P

    What was the lowest point in your mapping career?

    It's all uphill from here.

    Yep. Nice.

    Best Episode Three Map?

    E3M6. To quote my slightly-deranged past self: [ ye source: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/72183-april-agitation-the-megathread/?page=5&tab=comments#comment-1356600 ]

    Hadephobia Lost Song

    Huh, strange -- I have no memory at all of this, but I dug around a bit and found it. Here's an updated link (that won't randomly go dark like the ionline.vectec.net legacy site tends to): https://static.angryscience.net/pub/hosted/midi/Whitedamp - Royal Flush (v2).mid

    Hadephobia Lost Song

    I don't have any recollection of hosting anything like this, and the proper wiki doesn't have any mention of it either. Not sure what's up here TBH.

    Alarming Shower Thought

    A few years back, there was a certain standalone game that caught Zenimax's eye -- though freeware, the project very clearly used Doom's IP, with monster designs & names that are unmistakably Doom (i.e. exactly the sort of projects that Nintendo likes to shut down). Zenimax Legal contacted the authors and demanded... that the project change its name to not have "Doom" in it. That's it. The game's still there and otherwise un-meddled-with. We're fine.

    What popular megawads do you think are overrated?

    I apologize that it took me until Page 3 to say this, but: Threads like these are overrated. There, that's my medium-spice take of the evening.

    Best video game chaingun?

    Doom 2016/Eternal's chaingun in Mobile Turret mode. 'Nuff said.

    What is the best Master Levels map in your opinion

    Toss-up between Black Tower and Geryon for me. The former is grandiose awesome (for the time, ofc.), and the latter is Dr. Sleep at his strangest (and, IMO, best). Probably Vesperas as a runner-up.
  11. This thread needs more Shooby Taylor.

    MAYhem: 2020 Edition - On Idgames!

    re: MAP28, Unreachable BFGs are sort of a running joke I put in my maps. At least there's some obtainable ones this time around. :P
  13. Weird -- I could've sworn it was there on the wiki page, but checking the edit history, it's not. I'm having a Mandela Moment. :P
  14. It did -- check the posts in that thread after the submission. Bucket originally submitted the track for MAP14 under the name "Plugged In", but wasn't satisfied and ended up writing a different track for MAP14's slot (still using the name "Plugged In", somewhat confusingly). Jimmy liked the original tune enough that he used it for MAP23, and Bucket requested that it be renamed "Plug Ugly". tl;dr it's the MAP23 track that sounds like The Dividing Line, not MAP14's. The wiki was originally correct about this; that recent edit should be reverted.
