  1. For me, roughly the same amount. Most the maps I binned were replaced by a better one. So I'd have the same amount of released maps but the better maps wouldn't exist.
  2. @The Mysterious Moustachio I'll attempt a little something for MAP14 unless soneone else already plans for it.

    Getting annoyed by some words

    Incorrect use of the word Random became fashionable a few years back and still hasn't gone away. I was out with friends who said we should go into an old man pub because they wanted a random night out. I made the case that if we choose the pub it's not random so for the rest of the night we let the dice decide and had a genuinely random night out.
  4. Too many PWADS and not enough time. In the 90s people played the likes of MM and HR repeatedly learning every facet of the game because there was not as much high quality content. To me, UV should be the seemingly unfair difficulty level that you conquer by first learning the secrets and strategic advantages in a level. Now it's expected that UV difficulty plays fair from the first time you play because it's unreasonable to expect someone to invest so much time in one PWAD.
  5. My McGee level, plays on E4M1 This is a new version of the level with a couple of shrunken areas. Not sure if it's better or worse; I'll let @Alfonzo decide which one he keeps.

    My curiosity on the popularity of certain PWADs

    It certainly inspired a lot of mappers and it looks epic but I've never had the inclination to play it.

    And I'd add Sunlust to that list
  8. Hello. :)


    How is your VOH project?

    1. purist


      Hi Memfis,


      I've not been back long, cool that someone remembers VOH. Especially cool that it's someone whose mapping I respect as much as yours.


      I was planning 22 maps and have 16 at least part done... but I've not touched it for probably more than a year. I've recently got the Doom itch back though so if I find time I'll pick it up again.


      How are you doing?

    2. Memfis


      Wow, so you're not that far from finish? I hope you can find some time to work on it again.


      Just like you I haven't been mapping lately, but there is a new Russian megawad that should be released fairly soon, and I'm currently helping with testing it. I think it will be higher in quality than our previous megawads but also more traditional, so I'm not sure how much attention to expect.

      Well, it doesn't feel almost done. Whenever I finish the next episode I'll post it though and hopefully you're around at that time to let me know what you think.


      I'm out of the loop but the Russian community had built a lot of credibility so I'm sure there will be eyes on the new project.

  9. Ah so this is not released yet. I've been away for quite a long time. I've already replied to a PM from Alfonso before I woke up fully this morning, now I know I'm returning to mapping. A new version of my McGee inspired map and some screenies to follow...

    Designing for continuous play.

    Just test it's beatable for pistol start. That way if the player is in an unwinnable position carried over from the previous map he can at least have a chance after respawning. You can always throw some med kits in an exit room for a lazy/easy way to accommodate continuous players.

    GZDoom lags as soon as I start a new game

    I noticed this also happened to me after the Win 10 update.

    How often do you check Doomworld?

    Every few days. I'm kind of out of the loop at the moment but I still want to check in in case something major happens.

    What PWADs invoke the most nostalgia for you?

    Scythe, 10 Sectors and congestion 1024 for me, since they were amongst the first I downloaded. Now that I think about it, this could be the reason for my soft spot for small maps.

    Do you miss the old Doomworld?

    This is a stupid question I'm sure but I'm trying to navigate posts by most recent unread, which is fine, but how do I go to the oldest unread post in the threads? If I click the number of replies it always goes to the first page - even if I read them all.
