After taking a quick look in SLADE, it's a bunch of maps with super-simple design (1-2 small rooms) where "fun" enemies like Archviles and Cyberdemons spawn in super-dickish positions, basically insta-death. Not even good enough for jokewads.

It's all well and good that people create a first minimal map/set to show off their creativity.
But in all fairness, such minimal maps would best be placed into a new category: Sandbox.

Also, never a good idea to just throw stuff at people without telling them what it actually is. I know you guys want attention and count on common curiosity, but forcing anyone to take a look at your stuff this way is really bad.

It is a good thing in as much as that you are taking up mapping and getting involved with the community, but it is not so good with respect to the contents of your maps.

For the quality of the maps it would have been better if you had, from the beginning, just mentioned that this is your first excursion into doom mapping and invited suggestions for what could be done better, and criticism about the mapping style. Therefore I suggested the idea of Sandbox, where those new to mapping can present their offerings.

I dunno if that's a troll answer or not. You might not be confident enough about your creations to post screenshots, but you can't just expect people to jump into the cold water and find out by themselves. Like that, pretty much nobody will try it out, anyway.

Alright, fine. I downloaded one of them, specifically to post screenshots for you, since you've refused to do so yourself. And I'm not terribly amused about it.


And around the corner...


These are pretty much just really bad attempts at troll maps. I think we, as a community, are well past the point where these things were funny.

I can't tell if this is trying to be funny. But based on the screenshots posted by the boss. Yeah... I think I've seen enough to know that this is not funny. This is unprofessional at worst.

I'm sorry for this post.
