The [ZDoom Community MAP] Project

Postby Tormentor667 » Mon Jul 05, 2004 3:43 pm

I just had an neat idea *g* What about a [ZDoom Community MAP] ??? Well, here are my plans: You guys volunteer, I will make a list, and after that, we all build on map together. And this is how it goes:

- Everyone adds one (or 2) new room to the map
- Everyone is allowed to alter old rooms (means adding some detail or corners)
- Everyone is allowed to add some more ACS
- Everyone is allowed to add new textures
- Everyone is allowed to add new DECO stuff

In the end, we will have about 50 - 80 steps, means 50 rooms or more and a lot more other stuff ;) The main theme of the wad will be "Classic Doom" and "Classic Doom 2" so please add just stuff like that (for example "NiGhTMaRe Textures" or monsters from "Nanamis Monster Wad").

Just tell me what you think about it ;) Oh, and just to let you know, every person in the row has just 24h to add the new room. If he hasn't the time, the next person on the list has to do the step!

List of Mappers
1. Xaser (starts of with the map and room 1)
2. Graf Zahl
3. Lexus Alyus
4. Tormentor667
5. HotWax
6. Giest118
7. Bio Hazard
8. Nanami (no room but other stuff)
9. Destroyer (whatever)
10. Curunir
11. Nightmare

Good idea. I'm in! I think that's approximately the amount of mapping I can do... ;)

I'll do it! What's the harm in doing a few rooms :). I'll really have to show off though ;).

We can use nanamis monsters, that's for definate! :D. I think we should settle on one additional texture wad, just to make things easier...I vote for the Gothic Texture set as that would fit nicely with the standard Doom1/2 theme :).

This is going to be cool :).

Great ;)

@Lexus - You can add some textures on your own if you want to but please no complete texture set (like Gothic, btw, it looks good but doesn't fit the doom environment!). When adding textures (or complete sets) I just think on Nightmares textures:

About Nanamis monster wad: Yeah, ok I think this one is perfect ;) So if you want to add it (or anyone else) do it as soon as it is your turn ;) By the way: This won't be a problem at all (to work with one wad, that has resources AND the lump itself) because DoomBuilder can handle that and after each save, recompiles the wad :)

Argh. Never mind about the not understanding part. I get it now. Anyway, I'll start on it right when I finish eating.

I'm in! Since making one or two rooms is about the extent of my abilities, this should be great. I can also ACS just about anything, so if any of the other mappers want to accomplish a certain effect but don't know how, let me know and I'll add it when it's my turn.

i might be able to get a half a room before i decide its not cool enough...

so i guess im in

why should we be allowed to alter each other's rooms? wouldnt that break someones mapping style?

EDIT: how would we transfer this wad from person to person? if it goes over 256K, we cant upload it here and im sure not all of us have FTPs to upload to...

EDIT2: and maybe we could all talk about ideas in #NOTZDoomRelated! (hint hint)

I hate saying I'll make maps because I never do it, but I'll donate monsters from the resource wad!

I'll throw in a hand with the maps if that's OK with everyone, I'm great with storylines, so that might help.. I can also come up with some crazy scripts and prebuilt shit...

I'm in too. Only I'm not too sure that other people should be allowed to alter previous rooms.
