(Thanks to Jimmy for the idea for the new title!)

Yes, I know Halloween hasn't even happened yet, but this is to give prospective mappers some extra time to complete their submissions before the deadline.

The general theme, obviously, will be winter, Christmas, or anything to do with being cozy indoors while it's cold outside. This will use the Hexen IWAD as a base.

Hexen now? Sadly, I won't be in this but some testing would be fine.

Yeah I am trying to avoid being "just like everyone else" - plus playtesting several different maps with the same pistol, the same shotgun, the same rocket launcher, etc, doesn't sound as fun, to me. Doom has plenty of maps and plenty of community projects around it - a little variation to spice things up never hurts.

Hey, some IWAD variation is not bad at all. In fact, I appreciate the pace change to be honest. And also, I like Hexen too.
Testing all classes should be fun.

How big are you planning on each of these maps being?

How will map progression work; will it be linear or hub-based?

I'm actually thinking of doing a hub this time around, similar to how JOM5 and Spooktober did it, where each map is always accessed in its original state.

Also - the maps ideally would be between medium to large sized.

Lol I don't have Hexen. I think testing stuff and giving suggestions and moral support would be fine though.

Compared to vanilla levels? Because "community large" is serious undertaking :) .

No, nowhere near ZDCMP2 sized, if that's what you're thinking. I'm talking actually approximately the size of the maps in the first Hexen hub.

I will try to create something. I wanted to do Hexen level anyway. I hope it will be a worthy addition.
