    Share a random fact about yourself

    Feels, man. My kid self never would have thought it possible that there'd be a brief time in college where I actually believed I was "popular." Sharing a class and going to the same DIY punk shows? It was so nice to have people recognize me. I always took it for granted and would sneak off with just the one or two people I really cared about, but the universe doesn't discriminate. A lot of those people have disappeared, either died from illness or settled down with an SO or just completely changed. I wish I accepted more people unconditionally. Although where's the fun in that? Something something esteem, don't give yourself away too freely. Sometimes I feel bad that my dad had me so late in life (he was in his 40's when I was born), because what I gained in maturity I lost in terms of my patience/naivete for most of the people in my age group. Just couldn't ever relate to what they were going through. I was always too existential and nerdy. And I still am now, even though I've gotten better at seeming confident. So old guard Doomworlders, how the hell do you make friends after college? I'm 26 and still can't figure it out.

    Quest for Glory IV 3D (ZDoom Hexen mod) v0.1b WIP

    This is so amazing. I'm not on the forum as much as I used to but this is so bizarre and nostalgic and great. I love the QFG series and I love fan projects like this with the ripped art, the vibrant colors, the sound design, the mix of influences, it's great. Echoing Mere_Duke, it's like some kind of second childhood.
  3. I always wondered about this. I used to play on ZDoom and mainly use Doom Retro now. But wow, Boom makes me nostalgic. Were there any high-quality MegaWADs back then that made good use of all the features like scrolling, deep water, colormaps, etc.? It's content that I crave.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I'm playing Blood. I think it's my favorite Build engine game, I can't believe a game where half the arsenal is for setting enemies on fire/blowing them up feels so perfectly balanced.

    Ooh I dig it. Are you making something for Heretic? (I haven't been on DW in ages.)
  8. I said the same thing when I first got Windows 7...I wanted to change everything back to XP’s Tahoma.
  9. I really liked the fact it exposed me to lots of great music from previous generations, in MIDI form. But that was mainly unintentional and came from fan creations.

    I'm the same way. I usually burn out around MAP20.

    It's definitely not dying in terms of revenue - but I think there's fewer and fewer jobs. Most of the actual editing and compositing is actually done by freelancers. You find yourself caring more and more about a career path and what it "embodies" about you, the more you put in all this time researching and interviewing and selling yourself. It's kind of a double-edged sword and it can hurt you. I just really thought I could fall into steady, predictable yet engaging office work semi-related to my interests and degree. Who knew the bare minimum required so much luck and work? Guess that's millennial life tho.

    There was a guy making DaggerXL, in the years before Daggerfall Unity, and it looked really promising. I used to post on the old forum. I'm excited for Tamriel Rebuilt (Morrowind) so, who knows? Maybe by the time TES VI has come out I'll be too busy trying to recreate Morrowind in Daggerfall...

    Fun fact about me: I won my dad the Pick 4 lottery when I was 2 or 3 years old. "8212" in New Jersey, you can look it up somewhere. :\ that's rough man. I'm currently underemployed, and wondering if it's worth it to persevere and break into my desired field (book publishing) or if, like, "publishing" isn't even an industry anymore so much as it's a vanity field where a few incredibly lucky and privileged people can afford to work, under superficial prestige of furthering knowledge. I'm passionate about that too, but apparently it doesn't matter. Half the people with actual jobs (and even some of the ones with just internships) not only have Bachelor's degrees, but had an extra $6,000 to spend on the NYU/Columbia publishing courses. I was incredibly lucky after graduation. I took an internship writing copy for a small website, and they kept me on for about 2.5 years before running out of money. I don't think I'll be able to replicate that luck again. Sometimes I just think about getting a job at Best Buy or Micro Center. At least they probably like Doom.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Gigantic PL/PL2 styled map I started years ago. I want to get it done so badly but I keep forgetting my plans for keys, doors, etc.
