(Yet another) Episode One remake, based on the novel. Maybe call it KDiTN?

I have two more ideas.

Bathory Erzsebet - A very dark, grim mapset in a medieval-themed world.

Brian Badass - The most unfair wad you'll ever play. Based on games like Syobon Action and I Wanna Be The Guy. I've got one level made and I'll say it's stupidly hard. :twisted:

Well, I had the idea of suiting out Doomguy with an airtank and tube fitting onto his helmet for the water resource wad, but then saw just how many sprites that entailed and said forget it :P

I have had the idea of making a sort of Domo olympics, using the various alternative methods of gameplay I've come up with, like the Starwing based section in my second ZPack map and the ski slope from Twisted Joke... but I want to finish Coils of the Twisted Tale and Virus first.

GZelda - A Zelda mod done in GZDoom with MD3 models for..almost every actor except weapons. The problem is, is that the person I know that would help is too lazy. =<

Here's a quick room I did for Bathory Erzsebet. I'm using the Slightly Grey palette that Sodaholic was kind enough to make for me. Just in case you can't tell, the light coming in from the ceiling is actually a dynamic light. Sector-based lighting simply doesn't cut it in some areas. :)

Someone on DoomWorld forums was gathering most frustrating DooM map ideas. Many of hten can be used in such wad. Personaly I liked most the invisible maze made from impassable lines not appearing on map with an arachnotron in each corner.

Without the arachnotrons, TUD has already done exactly that. If you check out his operation lightening, you can see a large number of frustrating ideas. Good thing he improved as he went along really.

I'm not making it annoying, I'm making it unfair - such as, you step on a teleporter and the ceiling crushes you. What you have to do is step on and then off before the ceiling lowers, which is actually a switch. And lots of inivisible pits. :P

Put in teleporters that cause the player to telefrag an explosive barrel, and make their floor textures just ever so slightly different than the other ones. (Like, maybe the light level for the "correct" one is exactly 1 unit lower than the rest.)

You're not latching onto the concept of unfair here. To be unfair, the player should absolutely not be given any hint as to which teleporters work and which teleporters are death traps. I don't think it would create very fun gameplay, but it accurately fits the unfair criteria.

other posts: tl;dr

idea: a diablo hack 'n slash mod with monsters respawning at random intervals when the player's not around and monsters dropping money and items which can be equipped for stat boosts.
