Are they the only people working on said maps or does this work on a primary, secondary, tertiary mapping system like KDiZD?

This is so far just a single mapper tackling an entire map on his own. This way to cause less of a mess on the layout and visual clashing throughout a map. The style changes a bit between levels but that just adds a nice variety throughout the mapset. All the mappers working on it atm seem to be somewhat on par with eachother in terms of visual design atleast so there isn't much of a noticable quality drop between levels so far.

How much longer for the world to end? For world peace? For ZDoom forums to implode? For people to stop bumping? For people to stop asking that question?

I didn't mean until it was done, I meant until it was available for people to try. I assume the answer is when it's done? I didn't mean to interpret it as a call to hurry up, I was praising the project and I look forward to being able to play it.

Would it be possible to lock this thread until an update is available?

Hey guys sorry for the late reply but how the hell did you make those curved pipes? :D

Hey there X-DOOM, so i have questions, Does it affect performance?, Are they considered as 3D Floors?, Can you land on them?

Unless I'm mistaken, it's just a curved sector. Even Vanilla Doom is capable of them, having non-perpendicular walls was one of the improvements over Wolfenstein 3D.

There are no 3D Floor from these pipes, only ceiling slopes.
If you check on these small stacked sectors you will count 3 row.

The whole room ceiling's height is 128.
First row's ceiling is at 124.
The middle's ceiling is at 120, all his linedef are sloped ceiling.
The third row's ceiling is at 124.

I have no idea how they made their huge curved pipes on TSoZD, but i am sure it is something like i did, they may just had way more sector to made a better curve.
Just start with how i did and you will find it easy to reproduce.

This is the tool i used to make quick and easy circle, i started my pipe with this and splited it.

Hey guys, i have many questions about this mod (Sorry for the Bump, Dont ya dare call me Mr. Necromancer)

Can this work with Mods like Russian Overkill, Brutal DOOM, Perk's Smooth Animations, Ketchup Gore Mod, and etc?
Will this work with the HD Texture pack? (http://dhtp.freelanzer.com/)
How large will the total mod be?
Can you run it with KDiZD? (You know, Dragging both wads at once)
Will you guys release test versions or Beta versions?
How many Maps have been finished?
Will it work on Zandronum?
And last, least and the silliest question. Do you think while in the development of TSoZD Something bad will happen and then Vader will be on his way developing Community is Falling 4?

So that's all TSoZD Team

At your own risk. Mods often heavily alter the gameplay in ways that aren't predictable, and there's no reasonable way to accommodate them. Gameplay is balanced for standard play, we can't guarantee it will play as intended with third-party modifications.

No
How large will the total mod be?
Thiiiiiiiiiiiiis big.
Can you run it with KDiZD? (You know, Dragging both wads at once)
Probably not. We're not aiming for continuity, in any case.
Will you guys release test versions or Beta versions?
No idea. It's not far along enough to consider it yet.
How many Maps have been finished?
Z2M6 is the only map near completion at the moment.
Will it work on Zandronum?
Zandronum is several years behind on ZDoom features, so probably not unless it gets more up to date.
And last, least and the silliest question. Do you think while in the development of TSoZD Something bad will happen and then Vader will be on his way developing Community is Falling 4?
No
