    Urban Prison Movie released!!

    I apologize---I thought that when people said "underwhelming", I thought they were talking about my map and the video---You can view screenshots over at NewDoom for now until I get them posted on here---I now realize that they were talking about the video---I hope I didn't ruin your desire to play my map, because of what I said---Take care!! :D

    Well I re-read all of the posts and I have taken them into consideration and the introduction video will be re-done in a more professional and fashionable way to the best of my ability. I appreciate your criticism but I would highly appreciate your advice. Thank-you!! Once again, I am sorry for jumping the gun about the honest opinions that all of you have laid out.

    I guess I just got a little carried away. I've always been told that, "If you make a map to please everyone then you are wasting your time". As a producer, I can only please so many people, including myself. I'm sorry if I sounded like a complete asshole, but that is what makes me normal. If I didn't get mad, then that would show that I don't care about anyones opinions but my own and that would make me look just plain stupid. I have worked really hard on this map and I did get self-righteous because of the fact that I have put alot of hours into this map and I let that get carried away instead of stopping to think of what you guys were trying to say and that makes sense now. Thanks for clearing that up Bank.

    I appeciate that Nick, but see the fact that people say that my map is "underwhelming" is down right mean. They critisize my map without seeing the whole thing. They see a few in-game video shoots and they automatically think its crappy. They honestly have no idea what they are talking about until they actually play it. For instance, you can't judge a book by its cover. This map is very well detailed and considering its a prison map, there won't be very many texture changes. I have made many maps in the past and yes they have bombed and I have learned from that. But don't come into my post and start talking crap about it until you play the map (I'm not pointing my finger at you Nick). There is alot involved in this map. Yeah sure the storyline needs to be worked on, but don't critisize the actual map until you play it.

    For the people who complimented my map, I thank-you very much for the time you took to watch the video and appreciate what I have done so far. The map is nearly finished and I should have a release for it soon. So be on the look out. Ok for the people that constantly shot me down for doing something different....I have no college training at all and it's my very first time making anykind of trailier for anything. This site expects way too much out of people and it is ridiculous. Yeah I understand that it is just Doom, but just because everyone is so dam negative I hesitate to post here anymore. It's not that I can't handle the truth or anything, it's the fact that everyone expects professional work here. I am the only one who had been working on this map for 10 months including the video. I honestly don't see a reason to re-do anything, because I put everyhting that I have into this map and that video and if you don't like it...well tough. Deal with it.

    Urban Prison Movie released!!

    Ok I have been working on Urban Prison for Doom 2 for about a year now and I have created an intro video for this map. Now you are probably wondering why I made an intro video for a single map. To help you understand why I did it is : 1.) College reasons 2.) I have put alot of time and effort in this map and I wanted to express myself in a way to show how much I really love Doom. The intro video will hopefully provide answers to any questions that you have. You can watch the movie below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyH4URW7-Xo The movie is the storyline for the map. It gives the player knowledge of what happened at this prison and what there mission is. it took me a bout 3 months to make it and I hope you viewers enjoy it! PLEASE leave feedback! Thanks in advance. :) P.S.- I also go by the name RebelCrow, if you ever wonder why the name is different! :)

    new map in progress

    Sorry i'm just frustrated at the moment. I usually do, but it's just that i'm giving it all on this map and I really dont want it to look ordinary. I wont execpt that answer. I know i'm stubborn and I have alot of pride for my work, it's just that i'm trying so hard on this map, that I just want it to look really really good. I know it sounds like i'm compaining, but i'm not. So i'll get back to it asap. Later. ~ShadowedCrow~

    new map in progress

    ok well first off i would like to say that im the only one working on this map unlike other people who have about 3 or 4 people working on several maps at once. ok well when you have 3 or 4 people working on a map there's going to be tons of ideas flung around but when you have one person working on a map, not so many ideas are being flung around. the funny part is the fact that you guys cant seem to post your own reply up instead you use someone elses replies instead. i get the point that it looks ordinary, but like i said in the large post that i put up, if you actually play the map then you can see the rooms for what they are. you guys are making assumptions from a 2-D screenshot which in turn doesnt give the full effect of a room or an area. There's no such thing as overdetailed. just because i did alot to the ceilings doesnt mean its overdetailed, i just thought it would be a good turn-around to touch up the ceilings a bit more than usual. I do think that lighting also is an important issue in maps today, but see, alot of maps today stray away from the original doom look and feel which bugs the hell outta me. you have these modern day lookng maps, which dont get me wrong, there kickass looking maps, but they just dont fit the doom style at all. thats why newdoom is going downhill. If it wasnt for New Doom of course i wouldn't have found this site either and i would have never heard of Doom Builder at all. So I give my thanks to DaniJ666 and Dutch Devil and all of the staff in charge of NewDoom and Doom Builder. Its because all people want to do today is make TC doom games. IMO, i think that is ruining the Doom foundation it has. i do also understand that we have all of these new FPS that are coming out now that look just amazing. but when you try to bring that to Doom, it just doesnt fit at all. I do give credit to all the people that work on that kinda stuff and I hope that they go far. Like i said i'll try and get a demo out as soon as possible. so you guys can see for yourself.

    I am aware that the map has the average look to it. This is primarily due to the colors and tiles I use. The most common wall colors seen in doom are brown. It is because of this that it is hard to distinguish the difference between my map and such generic ones. The fact is you can not tell much from the screen shots, as I could take screen shots from any level in the doom game and they would look pretty much the same when compared. It is when you actually play the map that you tell the difference. The difference being primarily in the level of detail. For example the ceiling. I paid extra attention to the ceiling because 90% of the maps out there completely neglect it. It is my way of flipping the scale upside down. I even attempted to simulate sunlight pouring through the open portions of the ceiling. Granted doom is very limited in what you can do with it, however anyone who takes the time to look around the level during play will clearly see what it is trying to simulate. I will try to get a playable demo up as soon as I can so you can look for and idetify the things I have pointed out. No I am not saying my map is super great and better than everyone elses. I am aware the possibilities are endless and there is so much potential to unlock. I wasn't going for some drastically different from the original doom. I am a huge doom fan and I wanted it to have that same feel, and yes the similar look but with a higher attention to detail. I think the main reason people misjudge what I do is because they are use to maps that try so hard to deviate from the original feel of doom. I have no desire to do that because it is that original feel that made us all love the game so much.

    new map in progress

    well as you guys can tell i dont like to be ordinary at all so neither is my map. i appreciate the comments but the way you see it is the way its going to stay. i happen to like the hi-res textures and flats. but im still building it and i still have alot to do with it. but if i get alot more opinions from other people then i will consider changing it but until then its staying the way it is. also, i dont believe the screenshots accurately display the amount of work i put into this. When you actually play it, i think you will notice my attention to detail. I will try to make it downloadable as soon as possible.
