pyramids are nice, they are some of my favorite ancient structures as well :-)

I'm looking at pictures of pyramids for inspiration, I hope I will also be able to add some cool traps and stuff to the interior

added some decoration to the entrance

I have returned to Doom after an unfortunate wipe of a different project I'd spent hundreds of hours on.

At any rate, I'm getting back to work on my second map slot, I'll also touch up some things in my first map. ALSO: am I getting the impression you'd prefer mod files over MIDIs in submitted maps? I'm good with either, personally!

Fucking OUCH. Sorry to hear.

Nah, I don't really have any personal preference.

the pyramid can now be entered by the magic of line portals

Image Image Image

The door is just a regular lower floor to nearest type thing atm, but I might make it a poly object door.

Trying o decide the following atm

1) polydoor main door or just lower to nearest floor?
2) tardis pyramid (bigger on the inside) or not?

EDIT, update

I find myself torn between what people apparently vote as being top-of-the-line levels, what I personally like and doing something different :(

Take for example the top 100 levels of all time on doomworld... I can certainly see interesting bits of architecture and other interesting bits here and there.. but honestly... generally most of them do not suite my tastes at all :oops:

my goal will always be to creative levels that combine looks and fun :D

anyway... I am satisfied with how he castle level turned out.. I hope it will be able to stand out as much as my original attempt at map 31 was supposed to do... because... who would want a level that just looks like any old level?....

and now, for the latest screenshots from the WIP pyramid level:

edit: my t key on this old laptop is .... worn

Just wanted to check - is it ok to use this: https://zdoom.org/wiki/Projectile_Trap ?

Don't wanna go overboard, just to spice up a fight. Hit a slight creative snag this week, as my original plans to use some kind of polyobject based challenge went nowhere. So besides the potential 'projectile trap room', I'd like to include a small mirror maze, as one of the skull key challenges.

I Really Hope it is since I plan to add traps and such like that to my pyramid

I got no problem with it. Go ahead.
