The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Big Doom [v1.3.0]

Post by Josh771 »

Big Doom v1.3.0
Big Doom is a mutator that resizes Doom maps, making them either very cramped or just huge.
And, yes, this can definitely break maps and make them unplayable, so use this at your own discretion!

Download Link:
Big Doom v1.3.0 on Google Drive

Changelog:
v1.3.0
• Added new feature "Randomness", which randomizes the scaling for each map. This feature respects the option to scale X, Y, and Z axes seperately.

v1.2.0
• Added new feature "Use Proportional Clamping", which maintains the shape of the map when it must be clamped to keep from exceeding engine limits, i.e. no more super-tall ceilings due to disproportionate clamping.
• Added new feature "Preserve Floor Heights", which scales the Z-axis by moving the ceiling only. It does not guarantee that the map will not break, but it does make the map more likely to be traversable.

v1.1.1
• Clamped scaling factors to respect maximum map sizes in (GZ)Doom.

v1.1.0
• Fixed wall textures still scaling on X axis even if side texture scaling was disabled.
• Added option to scale maps differently for X, Y, and Z axes.

v1.0.0
• Initial(-ish) release!

Known Bugs:
• Using "Preserve Floor Heights" may expose untextured sides, creating HOM artifacts, since it scales sectors irrespective of their neighbors. I am considering a fix for this.
• Some texture scaling options may cause middle textures to look wrong. I am considering possible fixes for this.

I like the fact that every time you reappear you drop some of the best gameplay mod out there.

Everything work so well and I like the fact that you can control each axis. We can now play long Doom !



And before anyone ask, its shockingly compatible with Deformed Doom. Beware.

I'm glad to see somebody actually made this! I had this idea but no clue how to put it together! Love it!

When scaling up, this is fantastic with the Grappling Hook/Ledge Grab/etc. of zMovement. Brings a lot of fun verticality to maps. Thanks for making it!

Very cool. :) Would there possibly be a chance of getting an object multiplier as well? There used to be a mod back in the day that increased the size of the maps 4x and turned one zombieman into nine, for instance, and it'd be cool to have that here and customizable too. [especially since the python script that did that one couldn't work with map32]

There a few of different mods you could basically do that with, like Josh771's AI Director or m8f's 10.5x, the former of which even randomizes enemies and can do the same with items too if you so choose.

Yes! This is cool! 8-)

Now I can make every map play like UAC Vinur Prime - a map known for large spaces and wide corridors that I really enjoy and wanted more of.

I already have a whole bunch of mobility universal addons, like grappling hook, jetpack, jp-movement, super mario agilities, so now I can actually have the space to use them properly.

Thank you!

Could you link some of those mobility mods, especially the jetpack, I imagine those could really come in handy for playing maps with this :)

Also, this mod is awesome, it's nice to have more mods to be able to change the maps we know and love in fun and interesting new ways without having to actually modify the map ^_^

Version 1.3.0 has been released!

Added new "Randomness" feature, which will randomize the map scaling for each map. If you also use per-axis scaling, this will randomize each axis for even more randomness!
