Updated OP with a take on Map 04 - The Focus. I'm really glad you guys are enjoying it so far!

That's odd. There shouldn't be anything in the wad that affects the player class, would you mind sharing what your mod load order was?

Thanks, I made them myself. I'd prefer it if you waited until the project was finished before using any assets from it, but it's not too big of a deal.

No problem:

Code: Select all

"C:\games\Brutal FreeDOOM\gzdoom.exe" -iwad DOOM2.WAD -file brutalv21.pk3 d2rebuildt.wad simplehudaddons.pk3 AltDHTP_Hellbound.pk3 LP.pk3 BD2.pk3 "(GZDoom) Liquid Texture Pack V1.3.pk3" "LTP V1.3 Shader pack.pk3" "GZDB LTP V1.3 Resource File..pk3" UDV_v2.12b_A_BASE.pk3 UDV_v2.12b_B_VISOR_Alt_2.pk3 UDV_v2.12b_D_MISC_FONT_B_DisableMenuFont.pk3
And I tried a few alterations such as removing most of the addons and order of a few files. Looking at that shortcut, I now place simplehudaddons.pk3 at the ending. Just updated to a slightly newer version of the UDV HUD (v2.13) but AFAIK it was just to fix the version number, so I'll let you know if I encounter an issue this time. I don't think this has been an issue for me before.

BTW, what version of GZDoom do you use? I alternate between v3.7.2 and v4.3.3 right now.

EDIT: Still happening in the new release. This time I tried loading each level manually from the console (map map##). The problem only happens on MAP01.

I like how you have the rox secret switch with the laser. This is amazing how you've merged Builds realism into DOOM.

One issue I encountered is the wall that explodes after acquiring the blue key, it doesn't trigger. Its fine in vanilla. I don't know why this happens but scripts tied to objects like keys don't work in BD, I've been told there might be something I can change in GZDoom's settings but I've never come across such a setting. If I recall correctly it has something to do with key staying or not like in co-op play. I know this isn't really the place to ask but I figured I might as well mention it. For now I can fake it with a line def near the key.

Love it. Looks good so far.

Map-wise, reminds me a similar project from years ago. I can't remember the name of the fellow, but I think he made it to about Map 10, and then we never heard from him again...

Spoiler:
Jokes aside, those maps are very impressive and great to play through.
However, the mirrors in the restrooms right to the beginning of MAP02 are indestructible.

I'll look forwards to seeing it complete.

Anyone else having trouble loading a saved game? I'm running gzDoom and updated recently and when I try to load a saved game with the Re-Build-t wad, it crashes.

I have just played the first level to check the general quality of this and find myself quite pleased. You can still recognize the old levels, but they are pimped so much everything feels new. Also cool is the idea to connect levels without any loading times.

I'm also definitely getting the Build/Duke vibe from this, supported by colored lighting, explosions and jumping sequences. Once this is finished with music and everything, I'm absolutely signing up for a full playthrough!

Oh man awesome! I was getting kinda scared there that this'd be one of those projects that would be lost to time.
I'm really digging the inclusion of alternate pathways like vents ala the stuff you'd see in Duke3D, and the new shading effects you put in Map01

I just finished the first batch of levels and they were top notch. The way they've been expanded, retextured, and upgraded is really cool. There were lots of moments where it would take me a couple seconds to realize what classic room a remade environment was representing, only because this wad is so good at taking the abstract geometries of Doom's classic levels and turning them into real locations.

I haven't been around the Doom community too long, or played too many custom maps...but holy hell I love this mappack like no other so far, both the combining of levels and also massively expanding them to be their own things entirely is just amazing, plus combining them with NTMAI makes for an amazing combo, keep going, I am incredibly excited to see the next levels!

Very nice mapset. Of course, I played it with NMTAI, and I agree with Enjay. It doesn't feel quite like a build engine game, it's still Doom, but it has a unique style. I didn't encounter any noticeable bugs, but I think some outside areas had too many decorative items (I have a really shitty computer). That said though, I really liked the posters on wall, little things like that. Definetly helps it feel more like a build engine game. I don't know a lot about map design, but if all levels have this quality, I'd give it a solid 4/5.

This is AWESOME. The custom assets really land in that sweet spot between Build engines' "realistic but jokey" feel and Doom's stylized dreaminess. I really hope you make more progress with this project!
