Subcategories in the Maps and Gameplay Mods sections for Heretic and Hexen

Post by Casualfan »

Mods for Doom are definitely the majority here, but as I've looked around I've seen a decent amount of Heretic and Hexen mods, too. The trouble is, finding them requires an incredible amount of digging.

What I'm proposing is subsections in the Maps and Gameplay Mods forums respectively that are specifically for Heretic and Hexen mods, and maybe even another section for miscellaneous mods for HacX, Chex Quest, Hedon, Strife, etc.

This would be for organizational purposes so those looking to play mods for games other than Doom have an easy way to find them.

Just a thought. I'm no programmer, so I don't know how feasible this would be.

I am going to leave this one to the other admins and mods to decide.

It's a good idea for maps, but for gameplay mods it's a bit foggier, since a lot that target non Doom games do so in a way that enables them to run in multiple games.

I'd suggest rather than having separate categories, have or even require topic prefixes.

We do already encourage people to add topic prefixes, especially if a map is meant for games or ports besides Doom/ZDoom.

I haven't got around to this yet and it may be some time more yet before I can. But it's on my list.
