Alright, my map is ready. As I said, it is a basic map, like the starting point of a megawad.
Here's the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ccpjkr137h3oc ... 0.zip?dl=0

Have fun :) .

List updated. Leodoom, your DL link has been put in the main post. I played through the map and it's pretty fun.

Although that question has already been answered, the answer is yes. In fact, I thought about it a little and decided to scrap the custom textures rule. This is about monster placement, so custom textures are fine.

What's the rule on music? Custom MIDIs allowed? Or OGG if it fits and isn't over a couple MB?

My map is almost done also, I struggled with ideas but then I decided to do something crazy, but I'm loving the result. Don't worry, the crazy part isn't related to the monsters... something's gotta make up for the lack of action. :D

Sure, custom music's fine. Anything that doesn't collide with the main point of the map, which is being difficult while having no more than 20 vanilla monsters, is most likely fine.

Thanks for playing my map, at least it has more detail than the slaughter map. You know what, I will try that map as a challenge, without dying, just for the lols. :twisted:

Yea sure, wanna provide all the info you'll need for it. Also added a software friendly version of the map, although ZDoom apparently can't process that radiation sign I aligned in UDMF... it comes out weird, but GZDoom it looks fine. I thought that was universal to UDMF?

Anyway I hope the two versions still counts as one submission, the only difference between the two is removed colored lighting so it looks normal in ZDoom. The map is otherwise exactly the same.
