    Who feels a bit sick of constantly playing techbase levels?

    from what i understand, dark green walls can be very non-techbase.

    Hell themed WADS

    If you play megawads, many of the maps 21-30 are hell based. Whispers of Satan Speed of Doom Community Chest (all) Alien Vendetta Bloodbath Doom 2 In Name Only Doom 2 The Way ID Did it Unholy Realms Interception Scythe (1 and 2) I think I gave you like over 50 hell maps. There's plenty more, but you'll have to find them yourself (shouldn't be hard - check Megawads and ports/Megawads). I know there are some good non-megawad hell maps. Shai'tan's Luck is one episode. Maps 21-30. The end is hellish, and very good at being so. Another is Erik Alm's AA_BTH? wad. Maps 01-09. The last few maps as usual, are hell. Map 09 is brutal in difficulty.

    How do you feel the vanilla game has aged?

    First, of all: In my opinion, it's not DOOM that's aged the best - but rather DOOM 2. But I will use DOOM to represent both games. To me, it's the simplicity yet flexibility of modding the game that has enabled this game to age so well, in addition to the bestiary and weaponry being sustainable in many environments. This causes an extreme spike in replayability - which is vital for a game to age well. Megawads, and high quality wads & mods enable the user to have different experiences each time they play DOOM 2. As an example: I am playing Dark Souls 3. Really great series. It's known for it's difficulty. There is decent New Game Plus support to increase replayability, but in the end, the player simply goes through the same areas and kills tougher version of the same enemies. Eventually, that gets old and people move on to something else. As far as I know, it's impossible to make new maps and mobs for the game, and the only mod I know of (besides textures) is a randomizer one. I will add that another game I think that's going to age like DOOM is Skyrim, and for similar reasons.

    This project and Bridgeburner's are going to be rough and rough for the best aesthetics I've seen recently. Both are incredible.

    Are Polish games good or bad?

    I did play Witcher 3 - and it's an awesome game. It's not so much as a "time sink" as much as it is a huge world, with a huge story, and even the optional quests are fun (rather than go fetch me this). There's even a card game (Gwent). I'd say Witcher 3 is extremely similar to the Divinity Original Sin series which is extremely high quality.

    Blue Doom - a joke wad

    Texture mod: Every wall, floor, and ceiling is blue. Every sidedef. Monsters are the same as are levels. Play this if you think you memorized the layout of a level and need a challenge; you will not see switches, teleporters, or doors. Otherwise, I recommend skipping it.

    Iconography - The Obligatory Icon of Sin Community Project

    Honestly, I don't think so. But you can specify not to use it - just like some maps jumping is a cheat and of course there's people who'll use god mode. My advice is to point out not to use it - but don't get in over it.

    Pokémon Doom!!!

    necroposting for a reason such as this is generally the best reason to necropost. congrats on finishing your project - and maybe it'll see a Mordeth Award.

    [WIP] Elementalism - an ambitious new 32-map megawad

    Bridgeburner may very well earn a nomination for a Mapper of the Year Award.

    Doom Exp [Simple Rank/Reward System]

    what if 666 monsters is less than 50% (maps with 1400 + monsters)? do you get quad before double damage?
  14. UV isn't the hardest difficulty. There's UV -Respawn, UV -Fast, and of course, Nightmare. And for those who need harder - there's plenty of gameplay mods to REALLY enhance the experience.

    Depths of Insanity - Now on idgames!

    how very clever.

    in the programming world, this is possibly the most true statement. i feel like i have a medium amount of confidence. i don't feel like i always make stupid decisions or mess things up, but at the same time i also don't think i do things as well as i could or should have. i also define myself as a realist; and i think reality is more harsh than it is forgiving.

    Papa John is suing Papa John's Pizza

    sheesh man, i'm not talking about me personally... i'm just trying to think of what goes through these people's minds. i'm 30; millennials like me are the ones who are screwed and are paying the price. 30 years ago, i'd be able to have kids and now i'd go broke if i had even one. and i'm a college educated computer programmer. i think the best way to come up with a solution is to know why these kinds of things happen in the first place. what goes through people's minds when they make these decisions? why would someone drink choose to drink poisoned kool-aid? EDIT: it's not religion; rather it is extremism and fundamentalism which is where it pretty much dictates your life and decisions. huge difference. sorry if i offended anyone.

    Papa John is suing Papa John's Pizza

    Never liked Papa Johns. Not surprised at the latest. Pizza Hut is better. But my favorite is at a local Italian restaurant. Honestly, why would some 60 year old man give a crap? He has 30 to 40 years left on him and if the Earth lasts another 50 years - he won't care. Religion is also a powerful factor. A lot of people don't care about the other - rather - they want to satisfy their lord so they can go to heaven. People are very gullible and naive. Just look at the 900 people who committed suicide to Jim Jones. And throughout history , people have always relied on leaders for guidance. Not just country leaders, but in places like school, church, clubs, and even gaming communities.
  20. i am a "casual" gamer; in my opinion life is too short and stressful enough as it is to be so uptight about everything. Games usually have three difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, Hard. Normal is the way it is meant to be played, and Hard is for those who want an extra challenge. Hard is "not the way it is meant to be played", it is simply meant for people who find Normal to be too easy and want more. Easy, obviously, is so that the worst of gamers can enjoy the game too. In short, most gamers probably play games on Normal. These gamers tend to be more "generalized" and may have a taste for different games. Some gamers are competitive and play Hard (or harder) - these gamers tend to be more "specialized" and are more likely to be a fan of a certain game.

    The Age of Hell (megawad)

    doesn't hurt to do more frequent backups in the future. we programmers are required in our jobs to use source control in case something goes wrong or data is lost.

    What are all the "reactions" supposed to mean?

    Whichever powerup I use means I like the post - and I usually don't give out "likes" unless I feel it actually deserves one. Nothing more or nothing less.

    hellbound short doom ll wad

    Hellbound is the name of a famous megawad - I'd advise using a different name.
