Doomworld Mega Project 2014 thread here
This is official DOOMWORLD MEGA PROJECT 2015 thread,
this time hosted by scifista42, with TimeOfDeath's approval.
The idea and goal of the project is to get maps from as many mappers as possible. One map per person.
Whether you're a newbie or a mapping veteran, feel free to sign up and post a map! Nobody will be rejected. All maps will be accepted. There is no theme. You can make any kind of map you want. Just submit your map sometime during 2015.
When you post a map, you can expect feedback from people, which can consequently be helpful for you, if you wanted to improve your mapping skill. I'll try to provide honest feedback myself about all submitted maps. In case of vanilla/Boom maps, I can provide FDA demos. Also, when the project will be done and released, it will be probably played by Youtube/Twitch LP-players who play Doom wads, so that you can expect feedback from them as well. Finally, we will be glad for every submission, so that the project would fulfil its goal.
Make one map for Doom 2 IWAD. It has to support singleplayer game mode. Any map format and any compatibility is allowed (vanilla, LR, Boom, (G)ZDoom, ...), but please tell us your map's lowest-possible compatibility when posting the map, and make sure that it's actually correct (e.g. vanilla maps must run properly in vanilla). If you make a map for (G)ZDoom or another port that supports jumping, tell us whether jumping/crouching is allowed in your map, or not. New content is ALLOWED, as long as it doesn't replace any original stuff in Doom 2. Feel free to add custom music, textures, flats, animated textures, sprites and DECORATE-based things (not DEHACKED, and no TEXTURE1 alterations of D2 stock textures). DON'T use the map07 or map30 slots and DON'T use secret exit line actions.
New textures and flats must either be contained in an external official texture pack (for example cc4-tex, d2text), or have a 3-character prefix of your nickname (e.g. SCI*****, TOD*****). Both patches and the textures themselves must have the prefix.
ALL MAPS ARE ACCEPTED: whether they're huge epic maps, joke maps, tiny maps, beautiful maps, ugly maps, etc. Except for abusive maps that use scripts to change people's settings or are 1 GB while unzipped, etc. Make your map however you want.
DEADLINE = END OF 2015
When your map is done, post it in this thread and tell us what your map is compatible with (vanilla, boom, g/zdoom, etc).
Map submission deadline is set to the very really end of the year 2015, strictly and precisely. In other words, all maps for DMP2015 need to be submitted during the year 2015. When January 1st 2016 comes, I will be accepting maps to DMP2015 only as long as it's still 2015 in some
timezone in the world (not necessarily your own timezone - the logic is that this project is managed over the internet, and internet allows you to be virtually
anywhere in the world). Maps submitted after that time won't make it into DMP2015, but they will be welcome in the upcoming DMP2016 project. :)
P.S.: Anywhere on Earth
implies that 2015 truly ends when it's 0:00 on January 1st 2016 in UTC-12 timezone, which is
>>> 12:00 UTC on January 1st 2016
so that's also the deadline for all submissions to this project. :)
