Doomworld Mega Project - /idgames link is up

FINAL /idgames VERSION: DMP2012.zip

How many mappers can we get to contribute to a single project?

IDEA
Every single mapper who visits Doomworld makes one short-medium sized single player map for Doom2. That includes people who know how to map but choose not to (dew, Grazza, etc). ALL MAPPERS AT DOOMWORLD MUST PARTICIPATE! Please? This will be a giant compilation of new maps from the Doomworld community! Every mapper is different - some mappers make really detailed maps, some make under-detailed maps, some make hard maps, some make easier maps, etc.

The point is to get all mappers to contribute something to the same project, even if they only contribute a tiny one-room map - as long as they contribute something.


SPECIFICS
- small-medium sized maps for Doom 2
- one map per person
- any map format is allowed (maps will be separated into format-specific wads)
- no new textures or flats or monsters or anything
- new music is allowed (no mp3s)
- gameplay can be anything
- ALL MAPS WILL BE ACCEPTED: that means serious maps, troll maps, joke maps, tiny maps, ugly maps, speedmaps, whatever. All you have to do is submit a map!

DEADLINE = END OF 2012

When your map is done, post it in this thread.


Who's interested?
What should be changed?
Should someone else be in charge of the project, like esselfortium?

I might join in when the ball gets rolling on this. I'm already involved in some other projects for now though.

GRB - you can start any time. I just wanted to see if many mappers would be interested first.

Bucket - that's cool, all I ask is one small-medium single player map from all mappers at Doomworld.

j4 - thx, added

Every single mapper? Are you trying to outdo Mordeth or something or what?

Just thought it would be neat if a project had contributions from every single mapper here at Doomworld. Does that mean you're interested, 40oz? :)

So I can make like a zdoom map with tard scripts in it?
Actually, this'll be released 5 years from now if ever. We'll be waiting for the last people to never finish and maybe not everyone will want to participate.

I think it's funny how all of the interested mappers so far are the same ones that are doing slaughterfest :P

I have 2 questions about this project.

1. How many maps will be there in the final product?

2. Are we allowed to use custom monsters?

ggg - yeah you can make a script map, I thought we could separate the maps into multiple wads, so all zdoom maps go in one wad etc. If people want to do this, I think there should be a deadline of no later than the end of 2012. Also, I know your name is g-g-gmork, but I like calling you ggg, no offence. :)

GRB - Yeah, that's why I asked if someone else should "be in charge" of the project. It's good to see the slaughterfest mappers be interested in this, but I think more people would be interested in contributing a map if someone else was "in charge".

Doomguy 2000 - Hopefully there will be many maps, one by every mapper at Doomworld. I don't want to reject any mappers and I don't want to limit the number of maps submitted. I don't want to allow custom monsters either, just straight up map data to keep things simple.

I don't think that j4's map is Scythe-styled.

Call it Community Chest 5.
Release it the day before CC4.
???
Profit.

Memfis - sorry, I just meant "short-medium size maps" (like scythe), but with any gameplay and looks the mapper wants (it's up to the mapper how they want to present their map). So that mappers don't take too long making a huge epic map.

Btw, nice map j4. :)

I doubt that many people will participate in this project if you'll accept such maps. I'm not saying that jario's map is bad, but most doomers will not take it seriously and they wouldn't want to be a part of this project.

I find this very interesting idea!! I am really curious to see the various styles of mapping / layout / gameplay of the doomworld's mappers, since the work is serious!

IMHO, when I play a megawad, I often enjoy guessing what is the mapper which has create such or such map =)

I'd have never posted that junkie if I weren't obligated to, memfis. :p
I really don't have patience nor willpower for serious mapping.

This idea seems somewhat prone to trolling. I'm betting half the submissions will be intentionally bad jokewads.

Still... I haven't touched an editor for a while, I suppose it might give me an excuse to get back in the habit. Seeing as it's mandatory and all. I'll say maybe.

Also, I'd suggest laying off the scripting, as those are still lumps that you'd need to screw around with. If you're saying no monsters/textures/etc to keep it simple, then you'll want to do the same with other non-map lumps.

Yeah, at least j4rio won't be banned like everyone else who doesn't post a map. ;)

Memfis - I understand what you're saying. I hope people will still participate regardless of what the maps look like. This is supposed to be a compilation of everyone's different mapping styles. So some maps might be very detailed, some might not be detailed at all, some might be hella hard, some might not be, etc.

DooMad - that's ok, if people want to submit a trollmap then that's fine with me. As long as they submit something. :) I don't mind adding the script lump since it's lumped together with the other lumps and will be easy to copy/paste.
