Just wanna touch on music slots as it hasn't been mentioned: If you wanna claim a track, make your map for the mapslot the music occupies in the music wad. I can mention at this stage that MAP04 + 06 are already spoken for, and I would assume MAP01's track is taken as well and will be used for the map in the resource wad.

We've got a number of maps well under way now, including a new one from me that will be dropping any day now! I've noted current music slot claims now in the OP--let me know if there are any issues or if you want to go ahead and claim a track. Expect to see a lot more activity soon as we near the (initial mapping) finish line.

Excitedly awaiting the launch of this project. The subject matter is of great appeal to me and I'm sure I will enjoy this quite a bit.
Once I get my mappper skills polished (if I ever get them polished lol) I hope to be able to participate in this sometime. In the meantime, I can contribute to play the crap out of it :P

3 Days until mapping deadline! There are a couple of maps in the works that I know of that are just about done, plus whatever secret surprises that MC Bill cooks up for the bookend storytelling maps in the polish month of June. Get your synth on peeps!

Another map from me, probably early-set: Knights of the Patch Cables https://www.dropbox.com/s/zhr63pigsqeg3 ... 1.wad?dl=1 (plays MAP07 for music)


I'm making some good progress on the intro map, so with that and a possible last-minute drop from one or two others, we're looking at a respectable 7-8 map set. Not a bad haul! That said: please post your map here by midnight tomorrow (June 2nd) in your time zone to be considered for inclusion. Remember that we've got a month for polishing, so any good-faith effort should have a very strong chance of making it in the final set!

Just a quick note that Bill is currently hunkered down putting the final touches on the first compile and is getting hammered by irl factors, so the release is a day or three away. Scrangus McBrickdad/Jaxxoon R will be leading DBK02 and will have a project thread up in the coming days, he's just putting his own final touches on resources and giving Bill a chance to get this one live.

Indeed! The release will (almost certainly) be up this weekend, but the IRL factors have been real. This will be a nice way to kick things off, though, and I'm excited for everyone to see it come together. And even more excited to see what Scrangus has been cooking up :)

Cool WAD! It feels like Eviternity reminded me. Also beautifully constructed and a great soundtrack is attached. I haven't seen such projects for a long time. I want more!

By the way, are you planning to post a separate OST somewhere?

Overall this was something very unique and interesting, but I had two issues:

- On MAP02, when pressing the switch on line #774 the entire game got to a standstill due to bad setup of reflective floor/ceiling planes on sector 335. I strongly recommend to take off the ceiling reflection here to make this work right. I had to temporarily disable the reflections to get through this section of the map.
- While I eventually managed to beat the final map I never really understood the mechanics here - it ultimately was a random crapshoot to finally do the right thing. I wonder if some better hints can be provided for this.
