there is only one place in the Ice Caves to get Shell ammo. better have saved your shells from the last level.

instead of doing YET ANOTHER COURTYARD, I thought I would make an entire section dedicated to Ice caverns.

I have completed the layout of Map25 today. now I will work on the map functionality, and monster placement after that. there will be a new monster of my creation at the exit. I just need to work on it in dehacked.

development will be put on hold until I sort out this problem with a custom monster in DeHackEd. it's a lost soul variant called a maykr soul. it uses pain elemental re-animation sprites and duplicates too. I will post the .deh file for someone (like -TDRR-, thanks for the marines!) to look at.

EDIT: whoops! forgot to add the link from the last post. here is a link with a newer version. maybe the .deh file is behind this?

About 2 months have passed since the last update. No, I haven't been working on mapping during that time. It's just due to a lack of dedication and inspiration. That and wasting time playing video games. Luckily, today is the day where I decided to FINALLY release the next beta version. Going forward, I'm going to have to force myself to sit down and make maps whether I like it or not.

But if I ever seem to abandon this WAD again, it might be a while before I even give a status update again. Don't worry. Development WILL continue, even if it doesn't seem like it. Abandoning a project is just not cool.

Bad idea. Forcing creativity rarely works in favor of the end product. Besides, taking breaks is good, and even essential in a lot of ways. Take as much time away from this project as you need and come back to it only when you feel like it. You'll only do yourself and the project a disservice if you force yourself to work on it while inspiration is lacking.

I have first-hand experience of this. I know what I'm taking about.

The problem isn't that I can't come up with any new ideas (I mostly just make it up as I go along, but I do have an idea of what the next starting area could look like). The problem is that most of the time I just don't get around to actually do any mapping. It's not tiring, it's just that I'm not really "into" it at the moment like I used to be.

Anyway, I should probably getting back to making maps. I know that I need a break sometimes, but that would probably lead to this WAD remaining unfinished forever like a lot of other ambitious projects. You know, those really cool games and mods that show huge amounts of promise, only for the creator to never finish it. I don't want that to be the case here.

Currently experimenting with a system where the key changes depending on the difficulty. Also experimenting with a map that has absolutely no monsters in it, but is still challenging. Relatively.
