  1. I used to use hardware but grew to love software a lot more.
  2. Fun map! Nice layout overall. I like how you designed each room as a kind of set piece. Keep mapping!

    Some Dumb Map I Made

    I was lied to: it's not dumb at all. It's a great map! Keep going and have fun.

    Why are theyre so many inmost dens remakes

    I thought it was one of the better looking Doom 2 maps, myself. I like the The warm brick aesthetic contrasted against the blue water. And there's also good attention to geometry design and shading which breaks up the overtly flat appearance that most maps suffer from.

    Thanks so much
  6. Releasing stuff and later not being happy with it.
  7. I don't remember many names, but some landmark inspirations for me are Dr. Sleep, Casali brothers, Skillsaw and Romero.
  8. I usually play around with textures and working on a start room, get the look of it down, then go on from there. Then I'll be thinking of connectivity and where to place keys and good spots for monsters. Completely on the fly, I guess, but there still is some sort of method during the process to how it unfolds.

  10. Don't let the pressure of feeling like you've lost the spark make you feel bad or defeated. Just maybe step away for a little while, take a break and let it come back to you. I agree with others that there are aspects of discipline involved with any project but you've also got to not let the laborious side of it bring you down. If it's starting to feel like office work, you probably need a break. :P It's also important not to feel discouraged when you see stuff from other people that you think is better than your own. This sort of thing happens across every medium. So many directors, for instance, wish they had made someone else's movie, or music artists who wish they had written someone else's song, etc. I'm sure most doom mappers wish they had made someone else's wad. But everyone's work has something unique and their own personal style to offer, so even though you may not see it, your work can be as good as anything else out there.

    Vanilla or detailed map architecture?

    I like a healthy medium: detailed but retaining the blocky doom aesthetic. Just adding simple trim around edges, for instance, or adding simple pillars to flat walls; it all adds up to elevate the look of a map so much. Contrasting textures is also great to add volume and definition to the map. Mostly when I'm making a map, it's a vision of mine, so of course I want it to look as good as possible. And I find detailing does improve the enjoyment of playing.
