It's here! Over June and July 2021, we built a community of Doom mappers of all ages, tastes and levels of experience. The goal was simply to try new ideas - making a map for the first time, experimenting with a new map format, or anything that the author wanted - and to finish with a combined showcase of our efforts. That showcase ended up containing exactly two hundred maps.
Enter the strange hastily-assembled environment of RAMP Central and choose the challenges you want - from tiny arena maps to epic journeys, from easy beginner maps to megaslaughter insanity. Then head down to the patch of wasteland outside and build your own trophy garden to show off your achievements.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this unexpectedly massive project, and especially to those who spent time giving feedback, advice and guidance to others. As long as the influx of new mappers continues, Doom will never die
It was amazing to see people's efforts, and I'm very happy that some of these maps have already been turned into the basis for episodes or larger projects because their authors didn't want to stop.
I experimented with a continuous integration-like system for Doom for this project, and due to the size it ended up being, making this would not have been sanely possible without it. I'll be doing some writeups on it and making the code available to the Doom community as soon as I've got it into an understandable state!
