    How to properly improve layout skills?

    A good stepping stone for avoiding room-hallway-room syndrome is to skip the hallway. Connect rooms to rooms, then experiment with changing up the room shapes, having them wrap around each other, knocking down walls, varying floor heights, and whatnot. This isn't a hard-and-fast solve-everything technique or anything, just a thing to give a shot.
  2. Though Doomworld can only be so representative of the population at large, this thread makes me a happy mapper 'cause the consensus (judging from the posts & 'Like' distribution) overwhemingly suggests that it's only a vocal minority who actually believe in and/or perpetuate the UV-only stigma. Most people tend to pick what's the most fun with the game, which is Doin' It Right(tm).

    Your Guilty Doom Pleasure

    BFG-ing a single low-tier monster. This never ceases to amuse me for some reason. Also SSGing people into teleporters in co-op, then telefragging them. I'm a Satan.

    PNAMES/TEXTURE1/2 sucks.

    Seriously now, if Eternity & 3DGE support TX_ already, then somebody with some free time fork PrBoom+ (or for bonus points, the UMAPINFO fork), rename it KaBoom, add TX_ support, and the day is saved. It's your chance to be a superhero!

    Cross-port TX_ support is something I never knew I always wanted. (Incoming feature request: add Texas to all ports.)

    Most used song in your wads

    D_RUSTED plays at the end of every map in both episodes of TurboCharged ARCADE!, so I think that takes the default cake. :P [EDIT] This track. Listen and be unamazed!
  8. hello yes i am told this is a thread about decks
  9. Hmm, this is only semi on-topic, but I first got Doom (shareware) as a kid off some shovelware 10-CD collection thing, and this thread made me curious if I could find it anywhere. Well, lo and behold, I found the stupid thing: Look at this piece of shit. Y'all with a proper 3.5' release are lucky. :P

    Expansion Packs: Your best, okay, and worst

    Artorias of the Abyss and The Old Hunters were already mentioned, but I feel it's worth volunteering that all of the Soulsborne DLCs are top-notch. Semi-related tangent: when the first DLC for Dark Souls 3 (Ashes of Ariandel) was released, it got quite a mixed reception on Steam, but from perusing the reviews it seemed to me that the primary issue was that people simply expected more -- i.e. the quality slid from "utterly fantastic" to simply "pretty damn good" and people felt cheated out of their money*. :P Fortunately for Fromsoft, they knocked it out of the park with Ringed City, so the rabble was pacified once again... well, until DS:R hit yesterday, but that's a story for another time. :P [*Post-note: price and length were also factors; AoA is about the same length as DS2's DLC packs, but those were $10 while AoA was $15.]

    Doom The Way id Did: v1.1 Released!

    The /idgames version is newer -- use that one. That old web app is kinda just around for historical interest. I unfortunately don't have admin access to it (and the one who does, ellmo, has been vanished for a while) so the old link is kinda frozen in time. Welp. :P Either way, thanks for checking in! Better than picking the wrong one. :P
