As some of you may remember I attempted to start a community project of sorts called Fusion Mapping a while back (Fall 2010), it didn't really pan out due to lack of interest, but earlier this year I was motivated to give it another go by a few people, though I'll be going about it differently than before.
The very basic premise of Fusion Mapping is to take two classic maps from any Doom iwad (Ultimate, Doom 2, Final [plutonia/tnt]) and combine their layouts and themes in such a way as to create a new, yet nostalgic experience. Kind of like KDiZD tried to do...but instead of merely recreating one map you're recreating two maps in one.
This time, however, I plan to do most of the work that I can do by myself...by myself. If there are capable mappers out there who are interested in mapping for this I have written out some docs about how it's done and have a set of guidelines all typed out, but I won't be posting them here. If you want to make a commitment to this in some form feel free to PM me. I don't mind guest maps. Anyway, moving on.
I've been working on a sort of Take #2 sparingly for a few months now. Slowly ticking away at this between a few other projects that have recently come pretty close to completion. It's at a point now where I can take a few screens and show some stuff, so without further ado:
Spoiler: ScreenshotsAs a supplement to the maps I also have a music request thread for every map, because it wouldn't be complete without fitting music.
Also as a gimmick but nifty idea I had for the project as a whole...well, maybe it would be better to just show: Fusion Monsters Manual
