    Mappers' first world problems

    Setting up dummy sectors for monster teleports. Very tedious. Bonus points for playtesting through the entire level, only to realize that I forgot to unflag "ambush" on the monster I wanted to teleport in. >.>

    Why I hate the term "mapper".

    I'm perfectly happy being a mapper. It's a term of endearment, not derogatory. I don't see the problem.
  4. This is really impressive, especially coming from two (i think) unknowns. The classic style is spot on! Great work guys.
  5. The screenshots look really great, looking forward!
  6. Congrats on beta, everyone!

    How to Deal with Mapping Sadness

    Lots of great replies in here already, but I feel compelled to speak on it as well. I too tend to suffer from the so-called "mapping sadness" here and there. It can be hard to bear knowing, loving, and being experienced in a craft while ultimately having to come to terms with the fact that you just may not ever be one of the "greats". I know that I simply don't have the same level of drive and ambition to make something that makes the same splash that the Dragonflies and the Xasers and the Ribbiks' of the community do. That is exactly what makes them the "greats". I'm confident in my own mapping ability, and I know exactly the level of splash that I am capable of. I've become kind of comfortable landing somewhere in the "hey, it's nice to see a map from Pavera again!" zone, and reading those words on the release of any map is enough validation for me to continue doing what I do. I know that nobody really remembers my maps months down the line, and most likely nobody is playing any of my single map releases well after the fact. But that is OK! What's important, as stated already, is that you map because you find joy in mapping. And people will get joy out of your mapping too.
  8. Looks really nice. Bet it'll look awesome in Crispy :)

    The Top 100 Memorable Doom Maps of All Time

    Congrats to everyone mentioned on this list, it is well deserved!
  10. I think that @Alfonzo is just pre-spoiling this one for everybody so that you all know to avoid my horrible oversight calculated artistic decision in favor of authenticity, and we can all continue to pretend that my maps are fun to play.

    Ultimate Doom The Way id Did — Released!

  12. Looks great! Add it to my list of things to play.
  13. I don't get it -- you put effort into making a meme wad? Why not just try making a serious map?
