PhantomFool765 replied to PhantomFool765's topic in Doom EditingHey everyone, I've read the replies and I wanna thank you all for your help and tips, I've finally started on a WAD I'm confident in enough that it'll be uploaded to DOOMWORLD when I finish it unlike my other WADs in limbo. I've finally found out a good way of mapping thanks to you all and for once I'm able to make maps that play and look good and aren't 15 seconds long. So Thank you all for the advice.
PhantomFool765 posted a topic in Doom EditingIt's a very direct question, but I genuinely love mapping and have done it for about a year or 2 now not quite sure but have a lot of trouble with it. I'm a very uncreative person and can't really get good ideas often and a lot of my maps end up taking like 24 hours to make just to be a linear map with little to no detail sparse demons and can be beat in like 40 seconds if you know what you're doing. If I had to describe my maps it's if dementia was represented in a DOOM map and we we're at stage 4, like the basic things are there and there's most certainly a map but there's nothing really of substance in it. So I just wanna know if there's anything I can really do to improve my maps when I can hardly take inspiration from other maps because I have a really shitty memory and I can't really make up my own ideas.
