I don't really like the way you are running your projects, I remember playing the Doom64 II WIP, it had quite a few great maps that authors spent a lot of time on, myself included. Seems like a waste of time because I doubt they will ever be played - at least I uploaded my own to idGames.
Who said Doom64 II is dead? There's been a lot of "behind the scenes" work done, sure I'm not currently working on it, but once Dsdoom3 is done (It'll most likely be done halfway through 2011) I'll dedicate my mapping time to Doom64 II and hopefully wrap it up sometime around 2012.
Ghastly sent me the Zombie sprites and I'll definitely add them in when I have my next "mapper's block"

It looks an awful lot like the other maps...

OH SHIT! YOU'VE UNCOVERED IT'S HIDEOUS SECRET!
Well I'm not going to lie, you're right, I repeatedly used most of the same tech-base textures for the tech-base places. Originally I was planning on covering up my laziness with the original doom3's "Every texture looks the same" or "Maximum performance can be achieved with little detail and limited textures" or "It's a theme it's supposed to look the same" But now, I'm just going to give in to the truth and bask in my own shame..
Well actually, now that you mention it, you wouldn't happen to know of any texture sets that would match the "Doom2.5" look I'm going after would you?

I dunno but there's a ton of textures in NMN Corp 2 and you're apparently only using like three of them :P

You seem to have no faith in this project whatsoever

Are you usually this scant on details? I mean, come on, a little explanation would be bloody useful right now, that sentence isn't going to help at all.

Truth is he's right, no one's going to like my project except for a select few, same thing happened with all my other wads. So rather than getting my hopes up, I'm just preparing my mind for the worse. But that doesn't stop me from enjoying this, and this wad is more for me anyway, something I can play during those long road trips or air-flights or whatever. But if the community really loves it, well, that'll simply be a bonus for creating the game that I've wanted since 2006.

I think this looks like it has some really great potential. You've got some really great level design, so don't just half-ass it because you don't think other people are going to like it.

Half ass it? Au contraire, I'm giving it the best I got. I'm just saying that the "big executives", "Hot shot reviewers" and a good portion of their followers generally hate my wads
Spoiler:
I really like Dsdoom3, my friends that enjoy classic games liked dsdoom3 and a few other doomers seem to like it too. Anyway, if you like it, you like it, if you don't, you don't. Simple as that

Yeah I'll admit I didn't find KDIP the greatest, but it was decent. But I do like the looks of this, it should be fun.

The thing is, you generally want to make your mods for yourself anyway. If YOU don't like your own mod, then something's wrong.
