First Map - In 25 Years

Postby raviner » Tue Jan 19, 2021 8:50 pm

Hello. New.

I briefly fooled around with some Doom editing back in the 90s. Haven't done any since. Haven't really done much gaming since. Then I started watching some Doom play-throughs on Youtube a month or so ago and was suddenly struck with a nostalgic urge to get back in the game.

This first new map is urban style, based loosely on my own immediate neighbourhood. Pretty basic. Strictly Doom II. No mods, nothing fancy. However, I think it would probably qualify as what you call a "megamap" as it took me about an hour to complete in "Don't Hurt Me" mode (then again, I'm not very good at Doom).

Screenshots were taken during the design process, before population, so no real spoilers:

And, of course, the WAD:

Does it suck? Let me know.
It should - first map in 25 years, after all!

It's cute in an early 90s sort of way. If you had told me that this is a map you had on your hard drive back in the day and applied the finishing touches now I would have believed it. It feels like a time capsule from when this sort of map was extremely common on various websites. I do like the non-linearity, but I would recommend fixing some of the visual bugs with doors, and applying the unpegged flag on the doortraks, that's just a convention everyone follows.

As this feels like a time capsule from the 90s I can recommend it to those who are into that sort of thing.

Thanks for giving it a shot Dynamo! Indeed, parts of it literally did come from maps I had on my hard drive back in the day.

For anyone else interested, I've done a bit of an update, making it a little less confusing/convoluted (as that seems to be the main complaint I've heard - that, and the doors!), hosted here at a more permanent location:

I like these sort of maps, where there's plenty of room and large areas even if there's not much to them. MAP01 was ok and after deciding to try the other two glad i did as MAP02 was ok too but MAP03 just blew me away - was not expecting that after the first two haha! All i can say is keep mapping as you can certainly do some great stuff :)

Thanks Falcon! The third map was definitely a step-up from my first two attempts. I'm already working on a fourth map - not nearly as big, but there will still be plenty of room with large open areas....
