Hey guys, I just had this idea while at school today:

Since the holiday is coming up, why don't we make a halloween wad? We could make it like the Community Map projects and have one person work on it for one (yes, only ONE) day and then it goes on to the next person. We could have a new decorate wad for it, using some of the monsters from the monsters.wad, possibly some from the bosses.wad as well as new, creepy, spooky ones we could create, plus we could add new halloween decorations (haloween candles, jack-o-lantern, cobwebbing,etc.) I think it would make for a great wad! We would all be done by the 30th or the 31st so that its ready to be realeased on Halloween night!

This is only an idea, so if you like the idea, please let me know. If it is NOT a good idea, also let me know. Thanx!

EDIT: I will aslo start making the DECORATE by getting some cobwebs from the TNT Doom and some cobwebs from Heretic

EDIT2: I was also thinking that this could use some new, spooky music and creepy sounds. I should be able to provide some of the sounds, but I will need music and other sounds. So hopefully, someone could search the net or possibly make some music (pretty please? :D )

I think this is pretty bad timing IMO because there are so many other things being worked on.

Bat sprites? Oh lord, this isn't going to have pumpkins and witches flying around on strings is it? This is DOOM! We need a wad that's absaloutly TERRIFYING!! We need sprites for mutant babies, mutilated corpses, gibs up the wall, creepy scenery. And of course, an indistructable scary monster that follows you around (like nemesis :) )

I could make some weapons to this wad.

Would these be good weapons or should they be more halloween:

-Some strong melee weapon like baseballbat or something, edited from heretic staff
-Shotgun with exploding shells, edited from blaster
-Nailgun, edited from skullrod
-Throwing knives, edited from hammer
-Life sucking weapon, edited from gauntlets

i could do the Decorate for this wad.

This is all great! I like the sounds of the new weapons! And yes Bouncy, I would absolutely love it if you could do the decorate! looks like this is starting to come together! :D

also, this wad is open for any Halloween idea, so if you have any, please, go right ahead and suggest it! :D

EDIT: The bat sprites would be appreciated! :)

@CutmanMike - No, that wasn't exactly waht I had in mind. I want the monsters to be realistic and scary and that doesn't sound quite like it would be "scary" (the witches that is). The gibs on the wall sounds good though, and maybe the mutant babies, but see, I think if we could come up with some truly scary monsters, this wad could definitley come out great! I plan to make a contribution by adding my "Dark Knight" half-boss type creature to the game, but I am really happy that Bouncy is wanting to do the decorate :D I think he can come up wtih some good stuff! Feel free to contribute in anyway you want though!

EDIT2: Definitley need spooky scenery and mutilated corpse sprites, definitley righ about that :)

Sign me up! Let's say Friday, week 2, so I can see how the map style is shaping up when I work on it. I just need a place where I can upload the files. I don't have any personal webspace. Also, try to make the place a site that won't be blocked, becuase I can only transfer files at school (56k at home :( ).

I can make some scary music, if needed. I've got a Fractal/Chaos MIDI generator at home, and it can produce some very good soundtracks.

I also have some spider/ant (hard to tell from sprites) DECORATE enemies that might be of use. They swarm very convincingly in large groups (don't spawn more than about 100 though! LAAAAGGGG...)


P.S. someone may have to remind me via PM when it's my turn, I'm, kinda forgetful.

sounds great! I will sign you up for Friday of week2 then!

@Cutmanmike - No, I gotr what you meant, and I was AGREEING with what you said :P

EDIT: I will set up an account on a site for free web storage. The plan is that the account will have a suer name and password that everyone is to use. When they have finished working on the map, they will upload it to that account and delete the old one that is there, thus keeping it updated and available to all :D

If it is not possible for you to do this, let me know and send the file to me via email so I can upload.

Also, if anyone knows of a full moon skybox or a spooky halloween style skybox, feel free to say so! :D

Looks like that it is impossible to do that life sucker weapon with dehacked. So i made another weapon. It is hellish glove like thing what uses health for ammo.
