Bedlam [uploaded to the archive]

I drop my map. Don't have enough time and inspiration recently.

How much time spent in main ways should E3M4 have as an average?

NoneeLlama: Thanks. Fun map, has some problems with ammo balance - I'll explain in PM a little later.

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

Just classic marble/hell/wood/caves theme. No techbase textures please (but EXITDOOR and EXITSIGN are OK).

How much time spent in main ways should E3M4 have as an average?

Hmmm, at least 7-8 minutes but make it longer if you want.

Good pics C30N9. The first one is particulary foreboding.

Dragonsbrethren: Great! I loved your UNDERSEA tune-up in 1994TU.wad :) You are signed up.

Now we need to come up with a name for this wad. Any ideas guys?

How about Bedlam? It's a title I'd kept spare for an E3 map but it works for an episode too.

Escape from the Abyss? Kinda long and uninspired, but it might go well with the theme of maps having more sky as we progress.

Also, you didn't send any PM's to me, as you promised.
EDIT: Nevermind, just got it.

Memfis, I've PM'd you a link to a newer version of Caco's Cauldron (E3M6) with some little fixes included.

Just played your map: great use of sky as a floor texture. :) Really improves the atmosphere.

Hmmm, how about "And Death Shall Have No Dominion" for the title? (it's a poem by Dylan Thomas)

Very much looking forward to this. E3 doesn't get enough love, and these maps look excellent so far.

How far along is E3M8?

Not very far but here is some screenshot:

Very nice Memfis. Not sure about the name though. It's a bit clunky, not very snappy. I like how it's taken from a poem though.

I like it, but it would be more fitting for an E4 episode replacement IMO. (Also, I sent you a PM)

I'll watch for release and do some video recordings of it when it does.

Sorry for slacking off, Memfis. I hadn't done the difficulty settings yet, I'll do them right now. How about the name for E3M4 is "De Torture"? (Sorry, I'm too bad about creating names...)

EDIT: Pick a music too.

I give you these names as a present:

proscription of hope
handling rejection
climax of vexation
sacralized misery
predisposed to hate
establishment of distress
transmigration of evil
crematorium of souls
gods of revenge
spiritual crimes

No offense, but most of those sound like names of cheesy metal songs. :P

Try naming it after some infernal location like the original E3 does. I wouldn't be able to recommend anything specific without playing it.

the entrance of hell
church of hell
hell pit
hell mountain
the middle of hell
infernal hell
hellish inferno
the end of hell
endless torment... ** \M/

If Bedlam isn't grabbing you how about Post Mortal or Afterlife?

Seems fitting to me since the maps take place in a malignant spiritual realm.

Still looking forward to this aaaaaaa

How about "Return to Burn" :P

No progress on e3m8, need inspiration... Sorry for taking so long but I don't want to push myself.
For the title I think I'll go with "Bedlam" after all, so thanks for the idea purist.
