I want to join this. It'll give me something fun to do and flex my mapping skills.

I would like Map 09, since I love that level's music. :)

My map is coming along pretty well but, I was just wondering, since I am doing a single player map, can i use 3d floors or no? I just need to use them in a couple of small places.

Oh, and you spelled my name wrong on the first page.

This community project is for ZDoom, not GZDoom...so you can't use 3D floors... :wink:

I'll make my multiplayer map work for 4 players if I can, though 2 is a definite. The size limit will make four players rather tight though.

Spoiler: I love detail

Some height difference would greatly improve that area you can add as much detail as you want but it still is very flat.

Add some windows make an outside area create structures on the other side of that outside area add windows and rooms there as well add lots of height difference have monsters above and below you, those things make your map great detailing and flat room does not detail is just detail all it does is make your map look nice you can't expect to get away with an flat design by adding loads of detail to it.

I've got a quick question. Does the sky texture count? I'm currently using exactly ten textures with the sky texture, but I want to use one more so I can make some 3D bridges with bridge things. If it does count, I'll just get rid of the sky texture.

Edit:
I forgot to mention that I am working on a singleplayer map! That's why I want slot nine, besides the music.

Ok, my maps about half done, and it's called Gibletarium. Music is made by somebody who never gave a name to credit, but it's a MIDI of the sanctuary tune from Resident Evil 2. Bit creepy, but oh well. It is meant to be a deep underground chamber for the express purpose of storing and dismembering prisoners.

I've got something like 40% of the layout, gameplay and the like to do inside the 2048x2048 area, and then I want to do a background area which won't take too long, but will probably add a lot to the map.

10 textures/flats is a bit harder than I thought it'd be. Requires some very careful thought. Also seems to have made my map almost uniformly brown. Considering changing the fade to brown, just to emphasise the point. I'll see at the end.

I hope I didn't sounded too harsh with my comment anyway you could fill that room up with an bunch of crates put some monsters on them, I see you use startan one of the best doom textures ever just an bit of an pain to align especially on angled walls and misalignments are so easy to spot with these textures.

What do I see in the left corner are those an set of stairs that go down? some of the ceiling detail is making me wonder what it is like those silver hanging things you could make hanging computer panels out of those.

You can also split that room up into two sections and lower one section by I dunno 128 (or less)units add an lift or an set of stairs to connect the two that way you create more height difference, just some ideas I got while looking at your shot of course its your map and you should do what you like :) good luck with the map.

My map is coming along pretty nicely. It's called the Pueblo and takes place in an underground canyon dotted with strange buildings. The original inhabitants are long gone, now replaced by demons. The idea came to me when I thought about making a vertical map with lots of 3D bridges. So far it is less than half completed.

The texture set consists of brick, metal, and some choice "organic" textures such as ashwall and one of the Zimmer textures. I'm not sure it was the best choice, but I like it so far. Right now I'm using 11 textures, including the sky. I'll probably remove the sky texture to comply with the project rules unless otherwise noted.

I've really focused on lighting in the map, and I am using a bunch of ZDoom specific lighting effects. It's not perfect nor realistic, but I believe aesthetics are more important than strict realism. One of the things that I'm most impressed with is a shadow effect with a large pillar. There is a large "gate room" with a large pillar that must be lowered. The pillar casts a shadow on the wall, but when the player lowers it, the shadow lowers too. It's an effect that very few people will see, but I love it. :)

Screenshots coming soon. I'll upload the map for testing before I implement monsters and gameplay so I can see what needs fixing.

Man, hearing all these concepts makes what I've done on my map sound like shit.

Trust me, I'm just talking up my map because I'm excited. :p The idea is probably going to be more exciting than the execution. I still don't know if I'm happy with my texture choices, and how I'm going to implement the canyon battle between pueblos connected by 3D bridges is driving me bonkers.

Don't worry about your map's theme. :)
