slige modification contest

By "base-style" you mean "slige-style" I hope. Because that's all there is. =)

This sounds quite cool. I'll take a map. Never played a Slige map before... be interesting to see what it can spew out

zarcyb - slige1.zip
ralphis - slige2.zip
assmaster - slige3.zip
stoned - slige4.zip
nanami - slige5.zip

umm, honestly the slige maps are just so awful that trying to modify them to something good is basically the same thing as starting from scratch... so i'm not sure if there is any point in this.

what? you can change everything except the basic structure. you can add rooms, change the whole texture scheme, delete all the original monsters and add new ones from scratch, add detail, add some new rooms if you'd like... i don't see that it's that hard.

i changed it a while back so that each zip would be a personal megawad (for reasons of fairness), so yeah, if you have time you can do two from your set :)

yeah, you have until Monday, November 10th @ 8am (GMT). although if you'd like you can always work on it more afterward and put out your own updated release :)

heh, ever single map i've played so far in my search for my map starts off in a room with the exact same basic structure. other than that there's been a nice bit of variety. :)

You mean the "s room", that's kind of like the "signature" of Slige. You know s, as in slige. It's so that people won't just upload slige maps and claim them to be their own work, they have to at least bother to edit that room. :)

Hmmm most of thse maps are just linear sets of rooms :P
Anyway, I've found one that looks alvagable. I notice there's a feew new textures and flats. Who put them in there?

Hmm, I've only found one map worth working on. Heh. Do all the slige wads have the same TEXTURE lump and patches?

Share this post


Link to post

perhaps not, it might depend on what random textures appeared between those 32 maps. shouldn't be a problem putting them into one full texture lump though.

Is this intended to work as a real Doom2 episode or just 32 single levels? I mean can i make this map04 of my very challenging and put barons of hell and plasma rifles and what not in it? And how about the style? Should the early levels be in the base style as in Doom2 or can i use hellish textures and stuff like that? (all these Slige maps seem to be in hellish style anyway).
I say lets just make 32 fun levels and not care about how big and challenging or in what style they should be.
