Well, you could try for 2 sidedefs...

It'd be one giant unclosed sector (assuming one two-sided line)... Don't think the nodebuilder would like that...

Total, for the entire map. No more, no less.

Although this has been done before, there has never (to my knowledge) been a fully-playable Single-Player map that demonstrates such a feat. Once I develop this map to be interesting enough, I'll eventually start posting screenshots of it. For now you go ahead and tell me that I have way too much time on my hands. =P

EDIT: And by the power of all, I shall give it a name, and it's name shall be ...


What I don't get is, 2 Sectors is 2 Sectors...uh...how can a map be good if it only has 2 sectors!?

It was only a one week cool-off ban, not a permaban. Stop overreacting, please.

The only thing that makes no sense for me is doing it again. There has already been a 2-Sectors wad and there won't be any big differfence just becaue we are doing it now for ZDoom. I'd suggest coming up with something new and better

Doing it again, since when was a megawad of 2 sectors made!? The "2Sectors.wad" is not 2 sectors it has way more than 2 sectors which is why the name impies doesn't make sense. PLus your Avatar says 2 sectors is not enough. LOL so i rest my case.

I do it for sh*ts and giggles and because I find it genuinely fun to map for. =P

One could also say it's viable proof that one doesn't need eye-popping 2000-sector graphical detail with gradient shadows and maps larger than the entire Seven Portals hub from Hexen for a wad to be generally fun.

But I digress. I just really felt the need to get that off somewhere, especially as of late. That's really been bothering me. =/

I thnk with some really creative and clever use of actors, sidedefs, and textures, this might work out pretty decently. After all, didnt "Rise of the Triad" have like basically 2 secotrs anyways? Aleast it looked that way.

Well yeah. It has 37 maps, so that's 74 sectors total. :roll:

Marcus, once again, you don't know what you're talking about. Doom's sectors don't have to be continuous. Each of the maps in the 2sectors wad does contain only two sectors.

One basic 1s line, and one 1s switch would get you much further. But a lot of nodebuilders still wouldn't like it.

Still, I've never seen a map based around severely restricting sidedefs. That would be a new and interesting challenge.

Well, technically it didn't use "sectors", but it would actually be the equivalent of a 1-sector Doom map, but with more limitations.

Basically it was Wolf3D with floor and ceiling textures, the option to use a sky instead of a ceiling, the ability to specify one (1) ceiling height per level, and a whole bunch of pointless gibs.
