I should have also said that my map uses quite a few scripts, all numbered, since I couldn't figure out how to execute named scripts. So there may be conflict issues but, since I started numbering with script 2718, probably not.

I broke your map twice on my first test.

The cacodemons you need to kill in the yellow key room are not actually restricted to the yellow key room. They left, making progression impossible, because the door shuts permanently.

The teleports in the blue key room can teleport you inside of the polyobjects, perfectly harmlessly.

I decided to just make the lost soul spawns in my map finite, so here's the final version, until I get some feedback: http://www.mediafire.com/download/wtjj1 ... 282%29.wad

EDIT: Fixed both issues.

Changes:
The lines marking out the yellow key room now block the cacodemons
Shortly before the polyobjects collide, the teleporters raise and become inaccessible, preventing the player from getting stuck inside a polyobject.

Oops, I have to push a fix to my previous submission.

my.mixtape.moe/xmtmzm.zip

Basically just makes it bit more sure that you can kill every monster in the map. There was accidents where chaingunners fell into a pool and became unshootable essentially.
Updated previous link.

Here is the proper version of my map, everything should be working now, though UV difficulty might need nerfing.

Updated my map (old post). Same download URL as before; just redownload please.

Changes:
  • Changed the music from D_ROMERO to two MIDI adaptations of Quake music by Jay "SilentZora" Reichard (specifically, "Parallel Dimensions" and "Quake Theme"/"Persia Inversion"). Also added D_BLANK from Turbocharged Arcade (I suppose I'll have to ask Xaser where it came from) for some silence.
  • Made a few more lines on the automap appear one-sided/invisible to hide a few secrets that were added late in development.
  • Added more dogs. Everything needs more dogs.

late to turn in the second project i've ever done. Whooops. I think you'll all enjoy this one anyhow. It continues the style and gameplay from my doomworld 2015 project entry. UV really is ultra. Don't say i didn't warn you.

Well, technically it's two days late, but it's still time.

There's gonna be some more late submissions in the future and I'm still gonna accept them because I'm a big softie, but between the 20th and right now we gathered up everything we could and crammed them all in and I'm now in the process of setting up maps and making them flow together in one .pk3.

I'm not gonna lie. There's a lot. We've gotten about 80 maps and 40 weapons. Even keeping in mind that some of these are going to be trashed (I ended up trashing one map from DUMP 1, three from DUMP 2, so let's aim for five!!!), this is a monumental number. Far more than what DUMP 2's mammoth library had.
There's no way we're going to finish this up before July.
But for all y'all, you can take the next several days to just kick back, relax, and savor in the bliss. You made a map. Or a weapon. Or both. Congratulations.

Noooooow comes the ~*~FUN~*~ part.
Please pray for my, Yholl's, and PresidentPeople's sanities (and Medicris', whom I roped into this) as we now go through every single map and weapon to check for disparities and breakage.

Will we still be able to tweak our weapons now that we're in the compilation phase, or is that the entire point of this portion?

Edit:
Reread the first post. Looks like I'm going to have a lot of work to do in the next couple days few weeks. :V

Just played though it on HMP,the architecture is really nice, but I found there was a scarcity of health items, perhaps more than there should have been, and that some door sides weren't unpegged (final room and pain elemental courtyard stood out to me). Finally, there was no indication that the final door was a door and not a wall, I had to look at the automap after a while wandering to find it was in fact the red skull door.

Jesus Christ. Compiling 120 WADs into one product?

You're gonna go insane if you don't ask people to help you out directly say actually making their submissions viable for inclusion. Like I would just flat-out reject anything with the TEXTURE1 lump for new textures until that person can learn how to use efficient means like TEXTURES and the TX_ markers, and therefore make the process more streamlined for you. (I'm sorry this was the case with my map for DUMP 1.)

I would also like to offer my assistance during this - I've done WAD compilation myself before and can attest to how frustrating and arduous it can be. That said, I never undertook anything on DUMP 1 or 2's scale. Nor has anyone, I don't think. :?

Well, it's more like 80 WADs into one product and 40 into another; the weapons are going to be a separate things shipped at the same time as the maps.
