    Share a random fact about yourself

    Black is the only colour of bottomwear and footwear I own. Can never go wrong with it and most people don't even notice.
  2. Yes, unfortunately. I hate infinite height too, so I decided to turn it off. In one of the maps, I got trapped on a platforms with barons on one side and revenants on the other. As per the game rules, getting into such a position was my own fault. I should have died or improvised in order to make it out. With infinite height, I was just able to run over their heads which completely cheapened the gameplay. So technically, you cheated. No big deal, a lot of people play with IDDQD/ IDKFA. Play however you want, but if you wanna play by the rules, keep the infinite height 'on'.

    The Doom Confessional Booth

    I'm done pistol starting and playing saveless. It was starting to become an unhealthy obsession to the point of it not being fun anymore. I would spend countless hours trying to beat a somewhat challenging map and ignore everything else in my life. I developed a burning hatred for even slightly longer maps, ignoring the work of art someone created for free of cost. Some of the most well regarded maps of all time are well over 20 mins long. Imagine not being able to enjoy those! It was fun playing Icarus with saves, blasting through helpless monsters on map 27 with overpowered arsenal. I haven't had so much fun since I first played Plutonia with saves and carryover. I've realised that if I have an hour to play doom, I'd rather blast through 3-4 maps rather than trying to beat a single map with the perfect attempt. I know I'll never be a good player. Why bother?

    Do you consider mouselook as a cheat?

    The problem I have with mouselook, more than it giving the player a big advantage, is that it makes the 2d sprites look like shit. If you can look past that and if mouselooking makes your experience more enjoyable, who gives a damn? Play the way that gives you the best experience/ most satisfaction.

    Is TNT MAP22: Habitat a joke/troll map?

    Habitat is a pretty bad map but it's not significantly worse than other bad maps in TNT.

    WAD Progression for Skill Improvement

    So after 30 mins of abusing the shit out of infighting, a couple of close calls with cyberdemons, good RNG and generally playing like a wuss, I managed to beat map 29 of Scythe. Familiarising myself with the layout and figuring out a strategy to get 100% kills without running out of ammo was the hard part. Surprisingly, it took me less than 5 attempts to beat it after learning the map. Now for map 30...not really looking forward to it
  7. I got back to playing Doom after a 1.5 month hiatus. Picked up where I left - Icarus map 20

    Random Video Thread

    The Shield is basically 90 episodes of this. Michael Chiklis is a badass.

    Get It Off Your Chest

    Hang in there mate, I had a gap of 2 and a half years after uni. I know exactly how it feels. Something will definitely come your way, even if it isn't exactly your dream job (mine most definitely isn't). It's the only thing going for me atm, but it's a dead-end job. I just have to work about 25 hours a week and that too from home. Take out 50 hours of sleep, I simply cannot justify not doing anything in such a large amount of spare time. Doesn't have to be career-related, I started working out this month, but I have now missed 4 out of the last 6 days (including today).

    Get It Off Your Chest

    I'm a lazy fucking piece of shit. Been that way since I graduated from high school. I just sit for hours and do nothing. The only reason why I still have a job is because I can complete my work in half the time my colleagues would. I do literally nothing productive the rest of the day. I turn 25 next month and I'm just throwing my life away.

    My newest accomplishment!

    Congrats mate! Would recommend you to play TFC and Sigil before Plutonia for a better difficulty progression

    Are Secrets Really Necessary

    I look for secrets only because they help me get 100% kills from a pistol start. In easy maps, secrets are not necessary (unless there are monsters hidden in them). As the difficulty increases, secrets become more important.

    Confessions from an addict

    I burnt several hours playing Doom in 2020. Haven't touched the game in 2021. I dunno why.

    Btw, I recommend you to play Plutonia with the fan made midi pack. https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/music/plutmidi Plutonia just reuses music from Doom and Doom II, which gets boring after a while and frankly doesn't fit most of the maps well. The midi pack replaces all the original tracks and provides a completely different (and better) experience.

    Plutonia is very unforgiving on a blind run, but once you know the map and what traps are ahead, it gets easier. It's still a fair bit harder than Evilution but completely doable. I say beat TNT and give Plutonia another shot.

    Never heard of this, I'll have to check this out.

    I despise Piers Morgan

    Essential viewing Context: This is Morgan facing Brett Lee, one of the fast cricket bowlers of all time, as part of a silly stunt. If you are not a pro, this can be deadly. He was lucky to walk away with just a fractured rib.

    What demon annoys you the most?

    Punching barons is hella fun though
  20. Ultimate Doom: Perfect Hatred Doom II: Inmost Dens TNT: Carribean/ Stronghold Plutonia: The best iwad. Really can't pick one map. My answer will change every time. Some of my favourites - Caged, Ghost Town, Onslaught, Speed, Twilight, Go 2 it, Neurosphere

    Does anyone unironically use I'm Too Young To Die

    When I was 10, it was The Right Way™ to play Doom. I had to play many maps with no monsters too. Even then I couldn't beat the game.

    Doomworld shower thoughts thread

    Would people still be making and playing wads if Doom II were never made?

    What demon annoys you the most?

    May have something to do with spectres being a lot harder to see in software mode. Recently, I ditched OpenGL and noticed the difference myself.
