Hey, I'm not saying it's gonna be kick-ass for anyone else, just for me =P. I mean, if I don't like my room, no reason to submit it, is there? Plus, I might use it for a level or something.

Why not? Sectors are unlimited. You shall make one "room", including erm... If
I Understood Right multiple rooms along the Z axis.
Dont rely on the last statemant about Z rooms.

Yup, you're right. Dummy sectors in any number, as well as any other, are quite all right to use.

Nah, I suppose not. But the textures included in the Doom 1 IWAD would probably be a big help if you had them. But I can't hold it against you if you don't have Doom 1. So go ahead and use Doom 2 if that's all you have.

Well, that's it. I'm all out of ideas, and I don't feel my room is detailed enough. Shucks. I mean, I could do some lighting, but that's about it. Well, I'm gonna tinker with it until the end of the contest, but I'm pretty much done.

Do bars blocking the way that open up count as doors?

As long as they are within the main room, it's okay. I wish I could code an example, but you'll just have to take my word for it. You can use them as decoration, but you can't use bars to lead into blocked off new sectors.

Uhm, Define one room, is it just a big 896x896 room or can I have hallways just as it fits a 896x896 area without any doors of couse?

Good question. Technically, you can put whatever you want within the 896x896 area. If you can get hallways in it, more power to you. As you mentioned, I am entirely prohibiting any use of doors. To me, that seems to violate the purpose. Everything is open and corridor/sector/room based. But by an 896x896 area, I'd like to keep it within a room -- and by that I mean, not making said area an open field with buildings (w/o doors) on it. It's all supposed to be in the confines of an 896x896 block. I hope that answers your question!

Oh -- I may have forgotten to mention this, but if there are enough maps, a level using all of your rooms will be released for /newstuff. With your permission of course.

Can we submit more than one entry?

The thing is, I'd almost completed my entry when my computer started going haywire, so I've started another one on this spare computer. If I manage to get my computer fixed in time, I'll have two candidates, and I'd love to be able send them both in :)

Sure, that's cool. I'll just give you the benefit of the doubt and choose the best out of your submissions. Seeing as how the limit is 3. :) (at least it is now, heh)

Job, before you start asking for help on your new mega-cool-and-whatnot project, make sure you have something to show first (screenshots, map downloads, etc). Keep in mind we've already seen thousands of upcoming projects that actually never got done.
;)

Post replies for comments, questions, etc, as well as updates. All entries are to be completed by Saturday, November 21st.

that's a friday. unless you mean the 1st.

well, if you really meant the first then i can't make it this time around, but i'll try to show up next time.

quick question: define 896x896 limit, as in, if i were to make a square room, 64x64 grid, how many per side would that be? 14 per side? or something. bascially i'm just asking how many squares i'll get per side to make a giant sqaure room. then i'll detail. unless it's really the first for the deadline, then i'm screwed either way. :)

Yeah, I made another typo. Oy. It is indeed the first, i.e. tomorrow. Feel free to either a.) pull something out of your butt for this contest or b.) make the next one. :)
Anyway, you are right. 896x896 is 14 squares by 14 squares.

Well, that about wraps things up for me.

EDIT: Damn, I hate Geocities. Yeah, just copy/paste the link, and it should work fine.

Today? Darn, didn't get my second map finished, and still haven't been able to retrieve the first.

Oh well, I can hopefully restyle them for contest #2 :)

Not sure yet, but I'll be sure to post a new thread as first as all the loose ends of the first contest are tied up.
