final beta version

-------------------------------

Hi, I'm working on a vanilla E3 replacement for doom.wad. Basic ideas:

Marble/wood/caves/hell theme.
E3M1-E3M4 are underground maps, E3M5-E3M8 have some sky in them.
Easy/medium difficulty, kinda like the original E3.
E3M8 should be very long. It may or may not have bosses.
No new graphics.
Custom music is allowed and desired.

First ...
rocket launcher - e3m3
chaingun - e3m4
plasmagun - e3m5
BFG - e3m4 (secret), e3m6 (non-secret)
backpack - e3m4
boss - e3m8 only (or no bosses at all)

There is no specific rules for the other objects.


Maps:
e3m1 - done (by Memfis)
e3m2 - done (by Memfis)
e3m3 - done (by Antroid)
e3m4 - done (by C30N9)
e3m5 - done (by NoneeLlama)
e3m6 - done (by purist)
e3m7 - done (by Dragonsbrethren)
e3m8 - done (by Sokoro and Memfis)
e3m9 - in progress (by NoneeLlama)


Screenies:



So, anyone wants to join and make a map or two? :)

I started an E3 map, which I intended as a last minute submission for DTWiD until I realised I was never going to finish in time.

I've not worked on it since then so it's still very rough but you can either finish it or I can continue working on it later if you like.

It would probably go in E3M6 or E3M7 if it can be beaten into shape.

I was working on a map for e4m8 slot a while ago, and while it mainly tries to emulate the e4 style, it has some e3 touches as well. It's mostly untested/unfinished though, so you may run into some issues.

If you like it, I could edit it to suit your requirements.

There's an 8.6% chance I could complete a map for this. I have some half-finished e3 maps from dtwid feeling forlorn on my hd....

Looks quite interesting! If you could finish it that would be wonderful. :)

Very nice! I really enjoyed playing it. I wanted longer e3m8, but you changed my mind. :)
The only thing I didn't like is how you get full arsenal at the start. Isn't it much more fun when you have to look for weapons? If you change this, I'll gladly accept your map.
The style is fine by the way. Well, maybe it could be a little more hellish, but my wad is not as strict as DTWID. :)

Oh, and it probably needs more ammo for the final battle.

On the second thought, I think your map fits for e3m5 better, NoneeLlama. It makes a nice transition from underground to outdoor maps. Could you replace the boss battle with something else please?

I'll see what I can do about it.

Cheers, I'll try to do that. I have to finish my map for Interception first but I will hopefully get started next month. Is there an end date you're working to?

Not really, take your time. :) I'll sign you up for E3M6, so try to add a cool secret exit somewhere.
Check out the first post for the maplist.

NoneeLlama, NoobBait:

Okay guys, I signed you up. :)

Memfis, I decided to make a new level from scratch for e3m5, since modifying my older map doesn't go well (it's just too linear). I hope it's all right.

NoneeLlama: Of course it's all right. And more non-linearity is always good. :)

I rejected maps my BigMemka and NoobBait because I thought they weren't good enough. Slots e3m4 and e3m7 are open again.

How many details are you planning? Because I may do something "classic" to E3M4.

I have some half finished E3 maps I might be able to spruce up for this.

Memfis - check your PM's I've sent you a first draft of E3M6 - Caco's Cauldron.

Here's some screens:

That was a great map, purist. :)

C30N9: I'll sign you up if you want. :) Judging by what I saw, your style is more suitable for this project than Katamori's. (no offence!)

Thanks. I'll take E3M4 (unless Katamori really wanted it).

Judging by these screenshots, I think you need a classic theme, but not the same as DTWID. Right?
