Doom Map Suggestion Bot (Needs suggestions!)

Wed Apr 23, 2014 1:24 am

I made a little website that suggests what Doom map you should play. Very early in development, only 4 suggestions so far.

URL: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/l8u ... opbox.html

Hit me up with suggestions and throw in a screenshot at 320x270px.

Why 320x270? That seems awfully tall for Doom.

That's hardly tall enough.

Every time there's a new page in this thread, I'm going to throw in all the suggestions I like.

I know what we need to to! We need to write a suggestion bot that gives suggestions to the suggestion bot!

Would've been more useful if it could filter suggestions by IWAD and playthrough time.
Am I the only one who takes this kind of seriously

Once you are able to suggest every vanilla map on top of some custom ones, a place to log what maps you've done to exclude them from future suggestions and a place too write your level time from par would make a great addition for those who wish to keep detailed track of their progress. I could see this being a neat little niche.

I'm only interested in picking the best of the best maps out there to play. I don't feel like adding maps I don't like to the list.

The quality of a map seems like a very subjective thing and too leave a map out just because you deem it not worth is kinda whack, It is your project however. I no longer care to follow this, I hope it turns out nice for you however.

They just brought it back. Woohoo!

You could make it include all WADs that have won a Cacoward.

That's a good idea, I'll go through and pick the maps I like.

CChest3.wad map12 for example is something that I'll add to the list. That map is gold.
