HFFM SUBMISSION POST(last thread got bumped off by spam)
>>7618613A friend and I actually tried to use the Wayback Machine but even then the websites were mostly filled with dead images and even more dead URLs. A shame.>>7617757Through links found in the Marathon bungie forum but you can also find most of them if you google "Double Aught Duality".
>>7619328I've yet to play Q4, but I always did like Q2, how does it compare?>>7618314Imagine going to bat for Bethesda being underacheivers at best with a franchise which they mostly treat as a joke.
Japanese inspired maps that aren't weeb sort of like KUCHITSU.WAD?
>>7619328That should've been an introduction for Quake 4 with Bitterman as main character again.>>7618997
What retro shooter has the best vanilla game?
>>7619376Overall Q4 is kind of mediocre but it does have it's moments with body horror.For example, after that section everyone talks about Stroggification, there's a section just after it involving incomplete/discarded Stroggs that felt pretty creepy to play through; with a boss fight against some huge Strogg thing you need to force feed to get past that was pretty fucked up.The big problem with Quake 4 is that it's filled with mid 2000's - earlier 2010's shooter troupes; generic military bullshit, friendly AI that gets in the way, you move slow at the start of the game and a lot of boring vehicle/turret sections.
>>7619405Duke probably, its only mistake is tripmines
>>7619409>generic military bullshit, friendly AI that gets in the way,You're selling these shorter than you ought to. It's patently ridiculous that games since Quake IV don't even achieve 1/10th of the charm of Quake IV's cast. Duke Nukem Forever, Serious Sam 4, some of the later CoD games, etc. There's lots of great worldbuilding dialogue in Q4; it's all aged very, very well. The AI never gets in the way either. You're not really playing babysitter as much as they are like CoD1 NPCs where you don't need to worry about them. The vehicle sections are love it or hate it, yeah.
>>7619325Reposting my maps just in caseFudge Packers Inc:https://anonymousfiles.io/4lbhXO4W/The leather club:https://anonymousfiles.io/kkjha3jn/Nothing new about any of them, since I've been busy working on... tadaah, the new Hell Nobility sprites!I'm pretty much done with them now, all in all it took me around 3 hours to make them all. I would have posted them sooner, but I had some IRL stuff to take care of. Next up, the cyberdemon!
>>7619376Q4 is a 6-7/10 game for me. Maybe there's some fixes that makes the game better but I don't know any
>>7619376If you browse /vr/ or 4chan with any regularity, you may as well give Q4 a go since you're not doing anything else interesting. Won't be a bad experience.
>>7619450Yup, gonna give him the whole shebang, tight leather pants and all>>7619453>Pic related
>>7619448>that little zoom in and out effect you do behind the hell knight
>>7619423Episode 2 introduces those alien chaingunners and introduces Battlelords as a normal enemy. Doesn't help that the space station environments tends to make the levels feel very samey in spite of being built dramatically different.I love Duke, but Doom 2 vanilla outshines it in my opinion.>>7619432I swear there's a few sections where you need to wait on your squad, it's just that a lot of the game (especially the first half) is a blur to me.Re-entering that friendly transport ship post-Strogg and seeing the AI react differently was pretty neat I guess.
>7615595Just an update on the /vr/ map. I'm not done yet with all the areas from last comment, but should be soon. Here's just a screenshot how the map looks ingame right now.
>>7619432Q4 clearly had a vision with the enviroment. Not a fan of the Strogg designs,too busy and messy but there's so much love put into the world building.Even the weapons are great,unfortunately it's all in a not so stellar game.>>7619392I agree. That would've been arguably the best intro in a FPS game,Bitterman should've a more monstrous design,pure biopunk,not a fan of Squid Bruce Willis.
>>7619448>there are people in this thread right now who would hit that
>>7619469>Episode 2 introduces those alien chaingunners and introduces Battlelords as a normal enemyI don't get it, are you saying this as a negative?Also how do you think Duke's E2 maps feel the same despite being built different, and then praise Doom 2?
>>7619473>Bitterman should've a more monstrous design,pure biopunk,not a fan of Squid Bruce Willis.His Q3A look doesn't bother me all that much. I just don't understand why Raven just copied his Arena story for a new character instead of going back to him, especially given the cliffhanger at the end of Quake 2.
>>7619509Maybe because they wanted to go with someone who could hang out with other marines with the same skills,just to give them a reason to use AI buddies.Bitterman is a one man army and wouldn't need them,plus it was the mid 2000s and that was becoming a trend with the likes of COD and F.E.A.R.
>>7619517You're right, yeah. Raven might've also wanted to have more creative freedom while providing players more time to play as human before turning into Strogg.
>>7619453>>7619483And it's AMAZING!
>>7619448kind of reminds me of an xcom 2 mod I saw some years back
>>7619484>I don't get it, are you saying this as a negative?Yeah, Build game hitscanners are usually bastards. I probably should have said Sentry Drones in hindsight.>Also how do you think Duke's E2 maps feel the same despite being built different, and then praise Doom 2?It's mostly because how you're stuck in grey space stations for the majority of the episode. It kind of makes makes me feel claustrophobic and needing an open skybox (homesick?) for some reason.IDK man, it doesn't make sense to me either.
>>7619586>Raven>creative freedomThose sure don't go together these days.
>>7619605This is what happens when Ultra Marines from 4K forget their armors.
>>7619325reposting Full Thrusthttps://www.dropbox.com/s/ipomgie0gmik4ne/fullthrust_v2.wad?dl=0
>>7619606>needing an open skybox (homesick?) for some reasonI remember reading they actually wanted to put this in E2. You were supposed to get an astronaut suit at some point and play in some more open maps but gravity etc changed to fit that planet but this got scrapped rather early. Not sure if it's true or made up though
>>7619631DNF had a section like that in the DLC so I guess it happened.
Just beat Quake 2 for the first time. Was pretty fun. Goes on for a bit there in the middle, but the final few levels really shine and bring it back. I like the Strogg as enemies more than Q1's roster, and the fact that there are actual bosses in the game is a good plus.I feel like the weapons could have gone through a bit of tweaking. You either kill shit too fast(chaingun, rifle) or too slow(shotguns, grenade launcher). Or maybe I just didn't do enough quick switching, I don't know. Definitely needed muzzle flashes, though.
Finally started working on this map again!
fucking hate reddit elementals
>>7619702This is looking sweet!Is it Venice?>>7619693I found the boss fights a little too easy but I still take them over nothing.The Q2 roster feels like Doom 2 roster of enemies which is not a bad thing.About the muzzle flashes,it's a shame there are none. The sounds are so satisfying on the other hand
>>7619716>knowing Doomslayer politics
>>7619716>sick projects ribbiks
Do anyone know which quake2 source port is good
>>7619725Yamagi Quake 2.
>>7619630You're missing a texture on that step.
>>7619714It's based on Venice mostly and a bit of Italy in general, but there's also a 5% of Porto (Portugal) there with the colors of the buildings
>>7619716>amazing bottom>bulge OKthat hellknight really got to people
>>7619608>Those sure don't go together these days.Don't remind me about this, it's just sad... Oh yeah, Human Head Studios is part of Bethesda as Roundouse Studios. I think there're still those ex-Raven devs that formed the company. That's something, although I'm wondering what's up with Rune. Would've probably grabbed it at some point when I have some cash to share, but it never seemed to go on sale after their weird rebranding.
>>7619780The bulge is just "ok"? Do these sluts want even BIGGER cocks?
>>7619776On the ceiling too.
>>7619735>>7619796Yeah I can't seem to figure out why this doesn't work in something like prboom+. I've textured it, changed the sector shape, and it still messes up. It looks fine in something like gzdoom but prboom+ does not like it one bit. Could somebody else take a look at it for me in an editor?
>>7619376Quake 4 is so very much a mixed effort. On one side the environments and the visual execution of Stroggos as a world is impeccable, and I've used it so much as an inspiration for the maps I create for Quake 2, on the other hand, the Strogg themselves, the marines, and just about anything moving, feels so out of place.The game itself is a bit imbalanced I felt and until you get Stroggified the combat is too slow for its own good.I don't regard it as a serious game in the series, more like an afterthought.
>>7619813That top step is 2 sectors, but from what I can tell it doesn't need to be, because they're of the same height and brightness anyway. Just stretch out the one that does appear.
>>7619823Are there any overhaul mods that improve the gameplay?
>>7619828got it, thanks!>>7619630Forgot to mention anyone playtesting this I really need some more feedback on the final fight. I was thinking of adding another cyberdemon in the final wave but I'm not too sure about that.
HFFM releases today, yeah?
>>7619830There's one called "Lightning fast" which tweaks the weapons and movement,making it faster toohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86MeicNB124
>>7619432PersonallyQ4 is one of the only times all that modern bullshit was even tolerableBut I still don't like those kinds of mechanicsAnd the games without them are generally betterI.e. q4 makes Prey look like a masterpiecebut there are doom 2 wads that have single rooms which are better than the entirety of q4 or anything in Prey
>>7619469ep2 has some of the most interesting maps like dark side and fusion. the tram sections and verticality are really cool.I agree that duke and the build engine in general is strongest when doing urban city levels but I think episode 2 is actually a nice change of pace. Chaingunners are also imho not nearly as annoying as slimers or drones.
>>7619484Not him but doom2's city maps are generally a lot shittier than duke3d's space maps. The space levels are definitely the weakest part of duke3d though, while the city maps (mostly) are the weakest part of doom2. Why not compare and appreciate tthe high points of both games instead?
>>7619850The submission deadline is today. Anon still has to put it all together and I'm sure there's plenty of bugs to be ironed out.
>>7619867Slimes aren't that bad imo, if you hold the kick button they are basically not a problem. Unless you're talking about some completely different enemyNow Blood 2 leeches on the other hand, that was annoying as shit
>>7619318Do shamblers have hair or not?DON'T lie to me.
>>7619897It's a 'fur' of tiny undulating tentacles
>>7619897shamblers have hairfiends have eyes
>>7619716map better makron
>>7619850>>7619880We're going a bit longer actually.
>>7619897https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plROwwhLcsQ>>7619913>shamblers have hairHi Anon, hope you're doing well. This is inaccurate. The King has declared that, quote, "not fur". Just wanted you to know.
>>7619328I remember reading a preview of Q4 in a gaming mag and journo writing it really hyped up stroggification scene, when I finally got to play the game I was sort of disappointed by the scene desu because your character passes out for most of it, and certain parts of it are off screen or covered up.the way I imagined it I thought of your skin being peeled off while muscles are torn from bone, if only for a moment, so metal plates and tubing can be inserted, then its all sewn/riveted back together by a machine.your chest is cut open, much like that of cadaver being examined, and while that flying fuck with syringes pumps you full of adrenaline and other stimulants to keep you awake throughout procedure, you can see them put god-knows-what machinery inbetween your guts, while ribs that got broken in the process get replaced by a metal cage and steel mesh gets weaved under your skin.strogg dont care about your feelings, why should they give a fuck if that bullet you caught tore that mesh and you walk with shrapnel that buries in your flesh causing you constant pain? as far as they are concerned you are a mere drone obeying voice of the hivemind that is guided by Makron.as a dev, I would also turn it up to 11 on phobias to make this scene unbearable to people.most common medical phobias tend to be fear of needles, and fear of blood, both of these can easily be turned up in that scene. bonus points for arachnophobia, make a skin grafting machine that looks like a spider, suspended over you with its appendages being needle-like.tl;drteenage me raised on horror books and death metal imagined this more gruesome than it ended up being, if it were up to me as designer I would go all the way in. thanks for reading my blogpost with poor english
>>7619702I'd put some trims on edges of buildings, give it more depth y'know what I mean?
>>7619318>TFW I REALLY want either a Fallout FPS mod in the form of either a Build game mod like Duke 3D or Blood, a Quake 1 Engine TC, or an UT99 mod.Please, Fallout 3D...
>>7619483Yeah, me. Got a problem with that?
>>7619716>Marathon One day Marathon will prevail
>>7620026Yeah I was thinking of doing that, I might make some models for that once I have all the windows applied to the buildings!
>>7620043guess you have to make it urself
>>7619823Well the guy who made Q4 Textures for raven he now works at blizzard for OWreleased almost all of them for the taking, if someone mods them back to Q2 as TGA, it would be nice to see it since they are on the same res as the old upscaled pack for Q2Evolved Q2MAX and the early Berserk buildsalso i dont think they are out of place, they look really good for its time, but again Q2 was rushed and sabotaged by the bald shitface known as timmy who had his hand on firing McGee and Petersen
>>7620064>firing McGee and Petersenreally?
>>7620064you should really link that shit anon.released how, just as an "upgrade", or fully? because iirc old Raven games had some kind of legal thing that allowed modders to rip the resources for other games' mods.
>>7620008Q4 needed more body horror. Also the iron maidens look retarded they should have been hypersexualized. I miss trashy games.
>>7619586>>7619517The Cut expansion by ritual had a guy looking like grunt as a NPC https://imgur.com/a/gQUnZ btw could someone please archive all of those pics for the future? Imgur is going to shit Also Mission packs for Q2 are canonJoker blew Stroggos moon and stepchild destroyed the gravity well letting all of stroggos asteroid belt fall into the planet>>7619725see the pastebin at OP, it has all info for it, but yamagi is the most good 2 go, and KMquake2 is for lazarus addons>>7620085http://www.philipk.net/here it is, the guy's portfolio is neat.>>7620092by that pic you see how Q4 and Doom 3 suffered from over compressed textures even at ultra settings and how some meshes needed parallax heightmaps
Got a UT99 server up that can switch game modes every level. P cool.Anyone have any favorite custom maps to run?
>>7620104>btw could someone please archive all of those pics for the future?You could.
>>7620104>here it isthose aren't from Q4, they're for Q4, i.e. amateur modder work. quality stuff and probably landed him the job, but yeah, "hope you're doing well"https://web.archive.org/web/20060806211035/http://www.philipk.net/index.php?action=portview&id=70
>>7620136ISP is fucking me sideways atm, even to download shit at nexusmods or at moddb.>>7620140yeah, got that wrong, but still a good pack.there is also the old Q3World pack https://www.quake3world.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21210
Bloodfalls is a good map
>>7620104>guy looking like gruntNeat.>Imgur is going to shitWait, what's going on with it... or you're referring to >>7620145?>Also Mission packs for Q2 are canon>Joker blew Stroggos moon and stepchild destroyed the gravity well letting all of stroggos asteroid belt fall into the planetWell, I thought so.
>>7620058how do you handle geometry anyway? do you have entire map as a single model and sectors as colliders, or do you make your geometry normal way and then apply models as details?
>>7620104"Doom Eternal is like Warhammer 40k"Yet these motherfuckers look like they came straight out of that universe and look much cooler.Such a shame they never made it in the game
>>7620228She is supposed to be the Widow Reborn and she would be interactive
>>7619867Well, episode 2 should be reduced into 6 levels like the first one: Spaceport, Warp Factor, Fusion Station, Lunar Reactor and Dark Side as normal maps, Occupied Territory as a HFFM for secret. Lunatic Fringe should be a non episodic level somewhere in the extras.The other four maps are completely redundant, the boss should be at the end of Dark Side.This would have made episode 2 a better, more compact experience.
>>7620026\Nootrac4571 from Doomworld posted textures like that once.
>>7620259I think ep 2's length is fine desu. It's the only episode where the game takes place in space out of 3 episodes, now 5 if you count the episodes that came out afterwardsIf you were to shorten it the game basically has no space levels compared to all other Earth levels
This could have been Marathon 3.
how do we stop him bros
>Hey [X],*Visible aura starts glowing*>Hope you're doing well*Eyes start glowing, power is rising*>But this is innacurate.
whose idea it was to include multiplayer levels in single player levels?
>>7620421The earliest example I know of for sure is Memento Mori 2 in 1996. I think an earlier wad has been cited before but I don't remember what it is.
>>7620357I sometimes fantasize about some kind of remake of Halo but having it be more PC oriented. Make it so you carry multiple weapons but also make it so you have to swap them around because you're stuck deep behind enemy lines without resupply. Like you get a melee slot, a pistol slot, an assault rifle slot, a shotgun slot, a sniper slot, and a rocket launcher slot. Give all of them an Unreal style alt fire and mix in dual wielding for smaller weapons.
>>7620263See Id, was that so damn hard?
>>7619975How about we only extend by a week. 2048 took forever and most of it was just waiting on slacker anons. A lot of 2048's playtesting feedback came from anons who played the full pack of levels. Not as many anons will playtest individual levels for whatever reason. There was talk before about revisiting and adding more levels around Pride so if more people want to add levels they can then. That's also how long it's going to take sprite edit anon to edit every single frame of the monsters he wants to.
>>7620357the marines are so boring compared to bob
How's Doom Reteo?
>>7620540BOB voices are better for sure https://youtu.be/7dpxLPbamnA
>>7620421You mean multiplayer only arenas separate from the singleplayer part of the map? Memento Mori 1 and TNT Evilution are the earliest examples I can think of, but this also seems like the kind of thing which someone may have done even earlier.
>>7620461For me, it's the pre-Xbox Halo weaponshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Tqrfy4SR7I
>>7620572I hear it's alright.
>>7620593>You only have 5 months to make the gameThat explains why there's so much cut content and only having a two weapon limit. Fucking Microshaft.
>>7619702Texture pack? This looks really nice.
>>7620593>magazine based like marathon.>AR had grenade launcher like marathonFug
>>7619897Adrian said it has no fur.Romero said it has fur.Romero later said it has no fur.The official 90's action figure has no fur.The Quack Champignon Shambler hat has fur.U DECIDE
>>7620446This was 5 years ago. I assume the modder disappeared?
>>7620583"Don't shoot!" sounds like shaggy lmao
>>7612789FUDGE PACKERSDemo prboom cl9https://litter.catbox.moe/eej0c6.zipI played some yesterday so I knew how to clear the start but that's itNeither hard nor fast. Quite a slow and ponderous map, imo. No specific recommendations, the entire thing is slow-paced. I think this is because you built a 'realistic' building, then tried to populate it with monsters, rather than envisioning a specific encounter and building the map around thatDon't feel bad. This is what I was working on yesterday >>7616547I spent hours on it and progress was very slow so I'll record some demos today instead
>>7620630Soul. Just one if the devs shouting stuff. That first scream is engrained in my mind
>>7620626I'll find a real one and let all of you know
>>7620361By forcing twitter to ban him and send him back to rome.robut that is impossible>>7620626The Shambler arm skin has no furIf i were to guess it, there are Yeti and Furless Shambler species.
>>7620646>there are Yeti and Furless Shambler speciesThe QC team confirmed this.
>>7619630I think you could add another cyberdemon on uv a least. I liked this level a lot but I think it could be improved with minor modifications. That is if you're still taking general feedback.Certain enemy groups felt like filler, like the lost souls in the vent and the revenants and hell knights on platforms before the end. Just not very threatening. I'm also confused by that switch in the crate room, It looks like it should be a lift like the other but I couldn't operate it. I enjoyed the long corridor with the revenants because it's a great place to wall run, but seeing as how that's not possible in some ports I think its way too long. Also, I didn't even realize the exit was supposed to be a rocket until someone else pointed it out. The plutonia sky may be a poor texture choice for that.
>>7620626Fuck Adrian. It's fur.Notice how humans all have the same color hands/feet. Blacks have the same melanin-less pigment in their hands that whites do. Their hands are not black because the hands/feet don't contain melanin.So why would the shamblers hands/feet be darker than the skin on the rest of their bodies? Does the rest have even less melanin than the hands? No. Those are hands, and the rest of his body is covered in fur.
Going from Quake 3 to Unreal Tournament feels so weird.It's so much more difficult,while the fights that tend to be one sided at times in Q3, it feels more balanced in UT,everyone is involved and no one is cannon fodder.But when is just in 3 that's the worst because one member in particular becomes the frag bitch of the match.
>>7620659That's blood, anon. Not skin color
>>7620659>So why would the shamblers hands/feet be darker than the skin on the rest of their bodies?Cause its a monster from a vidya from the 90s? like it could as well have dicks for fingers, its kind of exempt from regular logic
>>7619448Well, looks like anon who wanted H-doom where the player is the girl avoiding getting wrapped is closer to reality than previously thought
>>7620626pretty sure Sandy made the model, and he recently said it has no fur. QC wasn't made by anyone in the original team, and it also sucks.
>>7620659It's blood, lad. He's a monsta
>>7620659he's just into handpainting
>>7620660Crazy how not having a bug that makes the game a one-sided massacre makes it more engaging huh?
Make the Lost Souls Ball gags So That Pain Elementals Are Spitting Out Ball gags
>>7620728Fuck Sandy Petersen and his shitty level design.
>>7620759Really? Quake 3 has a bug that does that?
>>7620728Sandy isn't a modeler or graphic artist, that model was made and textured by Adrian.
>>7620654Thanks for the feedback. The revenant hallway is supposed to be a dodge the fireballs thing each time you go through it. You can wallrun if you can but you shouldn't have to. I'll shorten it a little bit anyways. Also the switch in the crate room isn't a lift. As for the rocket I wanted to use a red texture so that it'd be a red rocket.
>>7620727Cringe,the based mod would be Hdoom but you fuck bara demons.
>Shadow Warrior in the highest difficulty setting was fairly straightforward>Blood in the 2nd highest difficulty is assraping meWhy am I failing so hard? The enemies just react so damn fast and do so much damage in this game, peek a corner and instantly get hitscanned to shit.
>>7620817Thats just how it is senpai. The hardest difficulty isnt even meant for single player. Also i dont know if that glitch is still present where game goes to the hardest difficulty without telling you
>>7619448LEATHER CLUBI like this one. I still think the starting section is dragging your map down. It's the only section in the map that is boring to replay. Ooooh punching out demons with infinite room to maneuver. Map should start in the lobbyThe entrance to the club is pitch black, at least in GLBoom, pic related.You actually don't need the SSG if you can into infighting - but you need to give it to the player before the cyberdemons, just in case! Add a non-secret one here at the very least.The 1-monster-at-a-time thing in the bathroom section is way too easy. Needs to be harder BUT the average player will not have SSG here if you don't place one around here.The music is good and doesn't get old.
What i am about to do, might not be the most wisest move, but il kill for people to push somebody into making a better Rott Sourceport
>>7620626According to Adrian, shamblers dont have fur but imps DO. Im not believing a thing he says.
>>76208172 last diff of Blood are meant for multiplayer, though second hardest is doable if you know the spawns
He proceed alone to remnants hunting however found lot of trouble in the old lab"What the... creepy boneIt's hell joke?" "Must destroy this plase and it remains still a lot... I guess"
>>7620823I failed to include demo, if you want itcl9 https://litter.catbox.moe/d5jqas.zip
>>7619448Looks really great, the color is just slightly off
>>7620836Beat blood my first time on the second hardest but i cant do it for the bonus ones
>>7620848did you save scum?
>>7620859What do you think lmao
>>7620817play the default difficulty. for episode 1 you should use the flare gun for zombies and finish them off with the pitchfork. 2 rounds of flare shots into cultists should do the job.>>7620836was kind of a dumb design decision desu. you'd only know this if you read the manual.
>>7620069Tim wilitis yes.
>>7620808>demon power bottomsunf
American didn't work on Final Doom? I thought he had but I can't find his name on map designers
>>7620228Is that a serious sam scorpion?
>>7620259I'm the guy you replied to and I like this idea. Maybe polaris station as a secret map too
>>7620174I like the use of HOMs at the end to make that bizarre water-cube. That always stuck out to me.
>>7620876You get it anon
>>7620817You avoid hitscan by jumping and ducking like a madman. It`s quite consistent
>>7620826I dunno where you're going with this, but whatever it is I support it
>>7620660Are you talking multiplayer or single player vs bots? Unreal bots are much tougher than Quake bots. In multiplayer it really just depends on who you're facing.
Are there any recommended total conversion mods for build engine games?
>>7620954vs bots. The bots in UT seemed much harder to deal with compared to Q3.
>>7620949Prefiring around corners helps a lot too because cultists do get stunned when shot. The tommy gun can stunlock them once you have it, so can akimbo shotguns with primary fire. Don't rely on the shotgun to fight cultists if you can help it. Getting them from out of sight with dynamite or using the tommy gun in a direct confrontation is preferable.
>>7620971Quake 3 bots are basically just speeding around in patterns according to their nodes which makes them seem quite silly, as they'll often just speed past you and not really bother to engage much. What is interesting about them is their chattiness. UT bots are much more prone to stop to fight or give chase in combat, and they have all these customizable attributes to them. And if you run into Loque, he's going to fuck your shit up with any hitscan weapons due to his 100% accuracy. UT2k4 bots are even worse because of the way they are programmed to aim, they can be infuriatingly hard to face at close ranges.
>>7620971pretty sure cpma has better bots for q3 if you really want
>>7620978Got it. I've noticed that certain enemies never stick to a single weapon and go all around.Even if I get my ass kicked it felt like a more consistent experience compared to Quake 3,where you either get apex predator enemies or just dumb. It was more a chore in Tier 1 where they barely fought you and went more for power ups.How did Epic managed to get it right while Id not? The latter had far more experience with the genre.
>>7620879Nope. Final Doom was TNT: Evilution, which was made by Team TNT (previously The Advanced Doom Mapping Mailing List, or something like that), which consisted of just dudes from the general community. Plutonia was made by Dario and Milo Casali, who were also part of this group, but did all the work on Plutonia by themselves. John Romero had noticed the TNT project, and then swooped in right before the intended release to offer them a licensing deal to buy the rights to the .wad and publishing it as an official expansion pack, on the condition that they provide an additional set of 32 levels, which the Casalis got right to work on, making Plutonia.American just happened to be John Carmack's neighbor, and they became pals. The subject of Doom inevitably came up, Carmack mentions making it, and American mentions how he thinks the game is totally sick, and shows Carmack some levels he made, which is how he got hired.
All this talking about UT being better than Quake 3 but I give it to the latter that is SO MUCH EASIER to find the skins,models and maps you want.
>>7620975And while I'm on the subject of how to not get owned by Build hitscanners, you can just straight-up circlestrafe Duke's, other than the Battlelord because he fires wide sprays. Shadow Warrior is the only one of the three that I'm not aware of any special techniques for dealing with its hitscanners. I suppose it works out because hitscans are the least of your concerns in SW and you have so many more explosives comparatively. The rocket launcher is your bread and butter in that game.Build Powerslave has no hitscanners, interestingly. It's got annoying bastard rapid-fire enemies that are about as dangerous as cultists, but they fire projectiles. The M60 doesn't stun them so you learn quick to use grenades or the serpent staff.
>>7621018>How did Epic managed to get it right while Id not?Steve Polge just happened to be pretty good at making decent AI opponents. Even in Unreal 1 from 1998 the enemies are clearly smarter than in Quake or Doom.>>7621027Well I never got much into Q3 mods but UT99 is remarkably easy to mod with its file/folder structure. I guess nowadays the Unreal community is dead and many great sites are gone (although ut-files is nice) but back when I was a kid I'd go into sites like Nalicity, Skincity, Modsquad, Beyondunreal, Unrealsp etc and find more content than I knew what to do with.
>>7621043>Steve Polge just happened to be pretty good at making decent AI opponentsInteresting,Unreal 1 enemies are criminally underrated.>Well I never got much into Q3 modsI actually saw tons of skins for it and helped that there are some websites still active for it.While Unreal Archive doesn't have images for the models sometimes and is incredibly difficult for me.
>>7620727>hot space marine tomboy getting gangbanged by muscular and well hung baronsWould be pretty cool tbhfam.>>7620949Jump up, jump up, and get down.
>>7620794>I'll shorten it a little bit anywaysDon't. Who cares if GZzoomers can't wallrun? Fuck 'em. That section is the single most memorable part of the map.The map should end at this hallway. Every single section afterwards is boring.The chaingunner stairway with the hidden megaarmor is not threatening because the chaingunners can't shoot you.Every time I try to enter the crate room I get blocked and bitten by the cacodemon floating by the cieling by the doorThe SR50 on top of the crates is lame. Not fast at all.That vent where you crawl through and exit facing a manc? Not threatening. That section where you clear out the barons with a rocket launcher? That's called a slog.You asked specifically for playtesting in the cyberdemon section. I accidentally ate a rocket while recording so I skipped to the end of the map - and against my advice, you added even MORE uninspired filler sections. Why are you padding your map?Your map is a slog to playtest, and it puts me in a bad mood. If you just ended it at the revenant hallway you'd have a great map. I wanted to take a screenshot of me at the end just to show I got there without cheating (I've been recording so playing saveless) but I'm bored and not paying attention and making careless mistakes
>>7621081Just in case you think I was being too harsh, this is the attitude of the mapper:>Yes, I know the crate room sucks that's just how it's going to be.>>7613149
It never gets old seeing alf threads being deleted.The fact he's a halofag is more hilarious.
>>7621081I liked the part at the end where you scale up the rocket silo and fight big waves of enemies, I think it would be a shame if he got rid of it
>>7621119the "hl ruined fps" guy likes halo? lmao
>>7621119Halo fans are awful. I've been in that fanbase for a while and it's divided in 4 type of people.Bungie stans: who would defend anything from that era like a flawless masterpiece343 stans:who would eat anything from them because "muh change"Lorefags: who sperg so hard that anything isn't 100% accurateMonsterfuckers: Doom has them too but those are almost impossible to avoid if you enter in anything related to HaloAll awfulI've been in those /vg/ threads and were fucking cancer.
>>7620978god playing with a huge set of bots in UT99 makes it fun seeing whether or not loque shows upYou get just fucked 1 v 1 if he has a sniper
>>7620619Quite understandable indeed. Ultimately more bearable than what happened to Rareware, still.
Perdition's Gate is better than Final Doom
>>7621146>install Unreal4Ever>shitload of weapons fuck yeah>discover a new world of pain whenever Loque finds an M16 and perfectly tracks you from across the map
>>7621145>Halo fans are awfulI don't think I can really blame you for your ire. The fandom became especially splintered and divisive after Halo:Reach and 343 studios took the helm.
>>7621145the reason the halo fanbase sucks is because there was only one good halo game (combat evolved) and everything since then has been such irredeemable trash that only weird autists interested in story and characters would actually bother playing the games.
>>7621146>>7621153Look at him,does that look like the face of mercy?Why they made him so OP in terms of accuracy?>>7621150Not exactly a high bar. Most of Plutonia is good but TNT is 50% good maps and the other is shovelware tier.
>>7621081>>7621112I appreciate the feedback. I made a lot of sloggy rooms like you said, especially at the end. It was also my fault for waiting near the very end to actually finish this up.But being pretty much my second map I've ever made for the public I set out with a goal to map what I wanted to. I wanted to make a revenant hallway, a crate room, some outdoor sections, something with crushers, a section where you mow down a ton of zombies, and some timed wave defense section. Did I achieve that perfectly? No, of course not. Will I take this feedback and use it to improve my mapping skills for the future? Yes, I will. Though for now, unless the deadline gets extended again, I'm just going to focus on balance changes. I'm not going to cut out half of my map unless anyone else says otherwise. You have been the only person to comment on stuff feeling like a slog. If the deadline doesn't get extended, do you have any comments on how I can improve what I currently have? Like the chaingunner stairway area. Should I lower the chaingunners a bit and give them less room to walk back? Or replace them with other enemies that can aim more reliably? Also the outside section with the barons, what can I do to make that more threatening? Spawn monsters behind the player so they have to manage two sides?Also the crate room should be blocked by sound coming from the outside. Unless you open the door at some point it shouldn't be blocked by a caco, I'll have to make sure that's working right.
>>7621161It's really lame because I know people who simply like the games and had tons of fun with them but then you have those two sides that really ruin everything>>7621164Halo 1 is my favourite and still like the other 2 of the trilogy.I wouldn't consider myself an hardcore fan anyway.
>>7621180>You have been the only person to comment on stuff feeling like a slog.Am I also the only person who recorded some gameplay of your map?You're getting way too sentimental, my friend. Don't get attached to these maps. You tried out some things and they failed. This map would be a very good map if you cut out all the bullshit. The fun sections are genuinely fun sections, but all the crap you added as filler detracts from it. Think QUALITY not quantity. Also it's FAST maps. Try out "Just Be Yourself" ( >>7613008 ) and see the difference. Also remember that you don't have to delete the map from your hard drive. You can Save As and create different versions.
>>7621153god I haven't tried it but this just made imagine loque with a mod that ports over the RTNP weapons, particularly the broken ass CAR that can alt fire as it fires it primary which is faster than the fucking minigun; I can only imagine it's a very special type of hell
>>7621230>I can only imagine it's a very special type of hellIt would be terrible but probably not that much worse than fighting those fucking marines.
>mfw map is labeled "very hard" in txt but i only play continuous and it was a breeze
Speaking of Loque,remember how he looked like in UT 3?
>>7621223Understandable, but I'm still going to wait for more feedback and see what's going to happen with the deadline. If anyone else comments about the slog then I'll probably ax the hallways up to the rocket and skip the defense section. I am not removing the rocket itself though else I would have to come up with a different name for this map lol.
>>7621263Better yet remember how the Necris supposed to look like in UT 2014? Damn you,Epic.
>>7613173JAW BREAKERThis map was going SO WELL until that teleporting archvile section. You cannot enter without risking getting zapped, so you are forced to wait outside, waiting for one of them to attack you so you can shoot it with rockets. I seriously spent like three minutes just standing there. Did you even playtest this? I can't understand how anyone would think this is okay. The next archvile section is where I stopped. I got zapped there and did not feel like replaying either of those archvile sections. The 2nd section is even harder. I dropped down and was sandwiched by 2 archviles with zero cover and died instantlydemo https://litter.catbox.moe/afzjns.zip
>>7613173>I'm always interested in more critique (for instance, how to improve the teleporter carousel in the second warehouse, as it's kind of tedious as it is)Here's an idea: remove the teleporting linedefs. Did you even try that section with the archviles just chilling on crates instead of teleporting so fast that they cannot be shot? Or try putting them on the ground?
>>7621240>those marinesseriously fuck those dudes, that part was by far harder than anything else in the main game or expansionI like the grenade launcher a fair bit but the rocket launcher and CAR were just unfinished; RTNP was a bit of a shit show in some ways

>>7621308Quakespasm.Also go for Quakespasm Spiked.
>>7619702Damn, nice bro
>>7619630I died right at the end to my own stupidity trying to BFG the Cyber. God I hate myself. Here's a FDA https://anonymousfiles.io/h6yrPCuJ/I thought it was a fine map but there's a few major issues:1 - The progression is cryptic. Relying on teleporters, placed in areas that look the exact same, can lead to that. Also, there was a gray door placed on a gray wall (pic related), and it took me several minutes to notice that while wandering around the level looking for where to go.2. The map looks bland. It's not ugly per se, but, why does it entirely lack any brightness variety? Everything's at 192 brightness. That won't do, anon. Some texture choices were pretty weird, too. I think this texture pack was a mistake for this project. There were some weird texture choices, like the entirety of the wallrun run and the red and black flat in pic related is an eyesore.There's also some redundancies as well, such as a secret green armor just the room before a free green armor (at least I think this is the case, unless you teleport to that armor from an earlier part in the level).Otherwise I think it's a fun level. Probably much easier than you think though. You're clearly a beginner but you did well.
>>7619716>better lore already>levels maybe, nah
>>7621308Quakespasm-Spiked.>>7621313>Good luck finding a good QW port lmaoOh yeah. I guess ezQuake is "the QW port" to go for and I finally managed to config it just right, but it doesn't want to load mission packs' maps (gamedir works though). Either I need something I'm not aware of or it doesn't support those, which kills one of the reasons I wanted to try out QW (for their multiplayer with weapons and SoE's CTF).Why QuakeWorld doesn't have its own Quakespasm(-Spiked)? What about FTE?Also, in case Clovr anon will come back to this particular thread: >I use FodQuake, personally.Why? I looked at it for a little bit and browser seemed a bit more confusing to me than the one in ezQuake + it's menu just looks weird. Not an issue if there's a way to go to classic Quake style though.>>7611673
>>7621081I absolutely agree with you, this map is a slog to playtest and the mapper needs to take more advice. >Lol not changing the hidden berserk at the beginning, soap funnyI couldn't even be bothered to playtest the newest version. And the MIDI is fucking terrible.
>>7621278It's the one part I don't feel satisfied with, it really kills the otherwise good pace of the level, and I recognize that it needs to be changed, badly.>>7621291>instead of teleporting so fast that they cannot be shot?The idea is that they'll eventually try to zap you, that means they'll stand still for a second or two, and gives you a window to blast them, a lot like Plutonia's Map 12.Problem is that the way the teleport sequence is set up seems to reset their aggro, so they're not very likely to try to zap you, hence actually getting this done takes several minutes.I'll be updating the map to add difficulty levels, so I'll play around with that encounter to see if I can make it work much better.
>>7621278JAWBREAKER MAPPER-I was the anon who initially suggested adding more viles to the teleporter section because I thought it would make it work better but it really doesn't. The one vile would be best.

Added two medikits in next room. Fixed some misalignments. Changed a couple HMP monsters.
>>7621353Yay more feedback! I'll definitely change that door texture, it never occurred to me it would be hard to notice. Also for the lighting that's also me just being new at this and not spending too much time on lighting details. But thanks for bringing that up though because I think I broke some lighting I had in a certain spot, I'll need to check that. I just picked textures for the long hallway part that stood out, up to suggestions for something better though. With the armor yeah I forgot I placed one in the crate room when I was making the second outdoor section. I'll change that up a bit.>>7621380There's two for the slog, will definitely cut it down for the ending section then.
>>7621386More or less viles doesn't solve the problem that their aggro resets.
>>7621432No, but it reduces the amount of time the section takes
>>7621145the fuck is a stan? Do you not know how to spell or are you referring to some retarded e-celeb
>>7621436Not by enough to fix it, even with just one vile, you're still waiting for him to pay attention to you.
>>7621380>>7621081>getting filtered by this map that isn't even that hard
>>7621437Stan is usually used for obsessive fans.Liking something to a great deal.It's mostly used for the context for celebs.
>>7621383>The idea is that they'll eventually try to zap you, that means they'll stand still for a second or two, and gives you a window to blast themThat is exactly the problem. I spent about three minutes just standing there waiting for them.>>7621408>will definitely cut it down for the ending section thenDon't work too hard, it's just a game. I think it'd be simpler to just keep that core good section, the start up to the revenant section. Maybe put a key there and the exit is behind the red door. That way you have less area to worry about texturing/brightness, and whatever finale you have can come there. Or the reventant tunnel can be the finale, I'd be fine with that. I think it's novel to use wallrunning to dodge revenant missiles
>>7621456>That is exactly the problem. Yes, it's a recognized problem which all the other playtesters have pointed out, and which is acknowledged in the post with the latest upload.
>>7621448I recorded a deathless run of it yesterday. Where's your demo?
>>7621456>Don't work too hardIt won't be, I can cut the crusher room and the zombieman horde just fine and still have the rocket section that I'd like. I'll post an updated version later today with those changes and see what people think. If the crate and second outdoor section is still super disliked then I'll cut them too afterwards.

>>7621447This may be overly complicated but what about something like-There's two switches, one to control the X axis teleporters, one to control the Y axis teleporters. Pressing the X switch will momentarily raise up a small sector in the middle of the X platforms that the archvile gets stuck on if one timed it right (really just a 50/50 chance) leaving him vulnerable for a couple seconds

>>7621758Sweet! I'll keep you updated>>7620632>Neither hard nor fast. Quite a slow and ponderous mapYeah, I kinda agree in retrospect. I made it before trying out any of the other maps so I wasn't sure how hard or fast it needed to be. Unfortunately, it would need a total redesign to fit the theme better, and I don't think I would have the time to do that, even if I wasn't working on the monsters ATM. I hope it's still faggy enough to be part of the project, even if it's just as an extra map or something.>>7620823I think I can fix most of that. The SSG isn't actually hidden anymore, it's right in front of the entrance to the disco room. I guess it must mean it's still too dark if you didn't notice it, I'll do something about it. And watching your demo, I totally get that punching pinkies at the start would get tedious real fast on repeat playthroughs. I think I'll just axe them entirely.By the way>that bit at the end of the demoGood shit, made me chuckle!
>>7621776>>7621758>>7621745It's cool as fuck but I think you guys are underestimating how long this stuff takes. The cyberdemon alone has 60 different frames (not including the death sequence). >>7621745Or maybe I'm seriously overestimating how much time this takes. How many frames have you done on both the hell knight and cyberdemon?
>>7621776Nah don't worry dude, a week should be more than enough. The Hell knights and the Cyberdemon should be the more time consuming ones to make and I'm almost done with them both. I'm planning to make the lower tier monsters look like the Village people, and putting hats on a couple of monsters will take no time at all.>>7621832Hell Knights/Barons are done (altought I need to tweak the baron's palette a bit, but nothing major). I'm almost done modeling the Cyberdemon's clothes, so expect it to be done within the day if nothing else comes up.
>>7621843>Nah don't worry dude, a week should be more than enough. Alright, I'll be honest, it's more that *I* may need another week.

>>7621858Are you the dude that wanted to retract his map to make some major overhauls?It's probably fine, even if the deadline is in a week NMN3anon will probably need a couple of days to compile everything, as long as you don't dissapear for a month and provide the final version quickly enough I'm sure it would still be accepted. It's worth at least trying!>>7621864I assume he probably did everything by hand, sculpting and rendering 3D models is rather fast in comparison.Out of curiosity, mind sharing the project's name? I always like to check out what other anons are working on
>>7621859well i dont wanna be THAT guy buuuut probably brootal doom and brutal doom proooobably plays best with Extermination Day but you know, lot of people will give you flak for starting doom with Brutal Doom (or just, brutal doom in general)
>>7619448Hell knight's legs look separate from the rest of him, like he's wearing pants. Needs the pink/peach from the top half in there.
>>7621896Yeah I agree, I was hoping it wouldn't be too visible in game, but it's not like you CAN'T look at it, you know. I'll tweak the palette a bit and paint some highlights on his arse later on
>>7621308What about Qrack?
>>7621883I tried PB and got mixed receptions, but it might of been the map set I was using(Scythe 1). Maybe Broodal with Extermination day would be a better fit.
I didn't post any of my art here in like forever,so have a nazi caco I colored.With a big MP40.
>>7621965that's awesomealso, you reminded me of the tormentor from wolfenstein rpg
>>7621965OP image material, good job
>>7621969Thank you,I've never seen the Tormentor.It's happy coincidence>>7621971Thanks,which title should we go with? Sieg Hell?
>>7621965That's a bigass stahlhelm, probably sounds like a goddamn witches cauldron when you drop it on the floor.
>>7621926Extermination Day is kind of made for Brutal Doom, its definitely the combo I would use if I wanted to try and convince some non-doomers into Doom. Though generally, you kind of have to like Doom in order to, well, play Doom.
>>7622004>Sieg Hell?How about the ending line from Wolfenstein 3D?

>>7621550I prefer Marathon 2's level design to Doom 2's but I agree that Doom 1 is unsurpassed and will remain so.
>>7621804Oh shit, she also worked on Tempus Irae. I wonder if there were many DA employees involved in that TC.
>>7621820Oh my god I just noticed the foot prints leading from the sewer for the first time. Dude that is good. Make the player start just like that but facing the club. Put the Boss of This Gym encounter in the club somewhere lol
>>7622030Need to re beat Tempus Irae. Loved that whole concept
>>7621820>>7622049OK idea - everything stays the same BUT the Boss of This Gym + pinkies encounter is optional and the berserk is tagged as secret, and you start off like before emerging from the sewer but facing the club. Also replace the 3 zombiemen by the Boss of This Gym with revenants, and the hellknight with a baron, since it is an optional punch-out-fest after all, and it makes sense the Boss is a baron especially if there are three revenants nearby
>>7622072And the flood of pinkies should start BEFORE you grab the berserk, to push you into that zone, again, an optional secret fight.
>>7621379>What about FTEIf you're content to fuck around with it for a few hours to optimize its millions of settings to your system (it's extremely finicky) then it's probably the best choice long-term. You can even play mods that are highly optimised for QSS like Slayer's Testaments with few issues beyond awkward audio looping.
>>7622072Man, I had the exact same idea and was just typing it out to see what people would think of it! Guess that's going in the map then. After all the gym does contain an armor, a backpack, a berserk AND a bfg, makes sense that it would be a secret area. Plus it would make for a fun easter egg for people in the know. "Wait a minute, if the leather club is there, then we must be two blocks down from..."
I know HFFM is still ongoing, but would anyone be interested in a Quake project after it's done? Pic possibly related.
>>7622004>Thanks,which title should we go with? Sieg Hell?>>7621985
>>7622106dont think this title will fly thoHard Fast Faggot/Friendly Maps will fly with normies because they can say "haha its soooo 4chan!"this name wont, I'd be down for some quake mapping after HFFM tho
>>7622106I think that name will be too hard of a sell. I enjoy racy jokes, but I also don't want my works to be too limited in their propagation.

>>7620008I was dissapointed by it tooMostly the part in which the rest of the fucking replacements in the body besides the legs are just welded under a metal plate. Goddamn, I wanted to see how the player is beign moved like a puppet from one side to the other while having it's bodyparts replaced with extreme cruelty.But I guess that's due to engine limitations.

>>7620660I had literally the opposite experienceas an avid player of both games, have a few tips:non-combat movement is faster in q3 thanks to strafejumping. Ut especially ut2k4 has faster in-combat movement thanks to the dodge.Most weapons in UT are more versatile. I find quake easier for mental decision making since it's clearly broken down into the so called "holy trinity"In ut you have weapons good at multiple ranges or one firing mode is for certain types of engagements while another is better at a different range.3: shock rifle is king in ut2k4, 3, and the newest one's playable prealpha. The shock combo is probably the most unique thing about UT and it completely changes how you can punish an enemy who moves in a way you predict. Especially if you bait them with an armor or shield belt.Speaking of the armor system -FOR ME, UT is generally harder to take back control in duels once you lose it. Obviously this depends on the map and the situation, but just the way that the armor timers are set up, or how you can still get headshot even with the 2 smaller armors (for real who though thigh pads were a good idea?).In ut99, sniper rifle is king and head hitbox is huge like nearly top 1/4th of char model. Learn to work with this.Gl m8I miss reflex arena

>>7622685On the top part you mean?
>>7622693yeah, give some that if in case some anons here decides to play with crt shenanigans now that royale was ported to reshade, give that shiny black leather look worthy of a hardo gay

>>7622680Fuck yes man
>>7622680give him a fedora and a white glove pls(not necessarilyfor the project but because it would be cool on it's own). otherwise looks good. I like the other anon's idea of a biker hat but even some kind of chain nor leather strap would be awesome as well if you feel like it. or a septum piercing.
So I was reading a different thread and thought it would be nice to check whether Doom II maps run slower than Doom I maps. Of course, modern computers are way too fast, but we have timedemos! And even if frames go through toolkit like SDL and video drivers, these should perform the same basic operations for the same amount of time for each frame, at least for the software rendered ports, and we can check the remaining performance variation. I agree that there is too much fortune telling here, but let's try it.First I've benchmarked three built-in demos for different games. Looks nice, and the results in Crispy Doom and PrBoom+ mostly match, despite the difference in their performance. However, three random demos on three random maps hardly represent anything.
>>7622778Then I used nice long UV Max episode runs for all four iwads to check average performance. But isn't that way too average? Episodes consist of maps of different complexity, we should look at their variation instead.Then I timed single level UV Max runs to make another nice graph, and immediately discovered that E1M1 is almost twice as slow (258 fps) as E1M2 (429 fps), which was nonsense. Moreover, that was reliable nonsense, as the numbers remained consistent no matter what I did to process priority and CPU affinity. So it actually was stress testing something to the max, but it wasn't something I expected to test. After doing all the maps in three episodes, I plotted the length of the demo against resulting FPS, and realized that my guess was right, as shorter demos were noticeably slower. Ideally, there should have been variation between more complex and less complex game plays, but the trend line would have been horizontal. Here, it is obviously not.
>>7622784What does all that mean? I suppose that at these game speeds each call to OS filesystem to load the data, even if it has obviously been all cached in memory, and no disk access in needed, becomes too noticeable, and probably offsets generation of dozens of frames. Therefore, these numbers change when proportion of time spent on loading level resources (that should be roughly the same) to overall execution time changes. On the first graph, results directly correspond to demo length, shorter ones are virtually slower in timedemo mode. On the second graph, TNT is probably rated higher because its levels are longer on average, and the effects of system calls are lower.I think that also means that results of popular demo3 timedemo of shareware Doom on anything made in this century, and anything that is not pure DOS, should be take with a sensible grain of salt. Also, using timedemo to compare performance of various builds or ports can be misleading, even more so when the level in the demo is finished in less than 5 minutes.
>>7622737I think I get what you mean, it is looking a little flat. I made it more glossy so it's darker and shinier. Does this look better?>>7622747Sorry anon, Cyber's meant to look like the Boss of this gym, so no hats. But don't worry, I got a biker outfit planned for another monster!>>7622768Cheers!>>7622774You want some sort of MJ cyberdemon? I can make you a few sprites for shitposting purposes if you want, but it'll have to wait until after the project. Remind me then and I'll give it a go. Also, yeah I'm planning to add a spiked collar and some chains around his arms too!
>>7622806its good now
>>7622568Change all the difficulties to "mostly peaceful levels".
>>7619325I Sawed the Demons (and They Were Pretty Hot) https://litter.catbox.moe/jvemym.zipHere is a chainsaw map. It takes about three-minutes if you don't die :) I spent hours playtesting so hopefully it's fun. Difficulty levels are implemented. I got the name from a list of HFFM names anon posted, pic related. There is a demo lump inside the wad but only watch it if you get stuck!
>>7622954Woops, I did all of my playtesting without getting the secret so I didn't realize the ceiling was too low to grab itISawed03https://litter.catbox.moe/lw6nke.zip
>>7622084Nah, I want to keep it simple + I enjoy OSS. Just wanted to look into QW ports since there's an anon that started hosting server for some vidya, including it.FTE doesn't even look that bad. I mean, the guy also made OSS. It's cool. I might've actually rolled with it if I figured out how to scale/change the HUD, which should actually be possible, given the known variety of its settings.Honestly, I should probably write a guide for how to make ezQuake look like a screenshot. Probably on Steam, like the one that Dwars made for Quakespasm. Could be useful to some people.>>7622106I actually thought about trying out Trenchbloom to get a bit nostalgic about times when I messed around with terrain in Warcraft 3's World Editor. Although, again, I only made the terrain stuff and nothing else. My result probably would be too much of a "first map made by stupid idiot who tried to make it look like a vanilla map, but messed up in the process".>>7622120LOL>>7622236>Any ideas for a name if not NIGGUR?Something related to... Pic related? Boring, I know.>>7622517>Muh, graphics. Muh, doesn't work on GZDoom.Hilarious.>>7622530Maybe make something that's somewhat more serious, more fitting for Quake's theme? I mean... This year is its 25th Anniversary, after all.
>>7622980>the secret isn't tagged as a secret
>>7622980>>7623042Ha, I thought it was intentional since the automap said 0/0 secrets, like you weren't meant to get it>What's that? You want this bfg? Fuuuuck you :)
Habitat is good, stay mad.
Scythe first time playing, with Weapons of Saturn or vanilla?I know it's designed around vanilla but after playing modded Doom I don't want to play vanilla anymore, it's boring as shit
>>7623078Just play in a way it was intended to be played, at least in your first playthrough.I appreciate your self-awareness though.
>>7621779Bethesda should delete it. At least the classic games.Unity port is better.
So many Doom 3 re-releases lately.What's going on?
>>7623153bethesda is preparing to release skyrim as a minigame for doom 3
>>7621779>Saving. Please don't turn off your computer.
>>7623049You beat it fast. Was it too easy? Was it any fun?
>>7623172Fast? It took me a good couple of tries to beat it, and I only managed to do it cause I got lucky with the archviles cockblocking the cyberdemon. But yeah, I had fun!Easy's absolutely not a word that would come to my mind to describe this map. While the map's quite hard, it's small and short enough that dying repeatedly isn't grating. Death doesn't feel unfair, you always feel like you can do it if you just play a little better. All in all a good little challenge, great job dude!
>>7623172It only dawns on me now that I should have recorded a demo, since you bothered to do it for my maps and all... sorry man, if you make another map or another version later on I'll be sure to think about it
>>7622236for a possible non-niggur name, "A Series of Violent or Irregular Motions" i.e. dictionary definition of quakealso, I would join.
>>7623248>"A Series of Violent or Irregular Motions"That actually sounds very cool.
>>7623219ty fren. I had the idea of a chainsaw map in which you have to chainsaw a baron at one point, but chainsawing a baron turned out to be a boring fight, and after a lot of experimenting and playtesting I ended up with this. Hopefully I get another bit of serendipitous inspiration
Love the chainsaw throw in Burl Tumd, reminds me of American Psycho

>>7623342>"Violent Rumble" for vr?Could work. At least the idea of making it "VR" for short sounds good to me. I also thought of "Vicious Regions" in reference to Mission Packs trailer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b81dewfzE60
>>7619716It certainly does.
>>7621146>hmm i think i will play zandronum against bots>roll fucking ultimus
>>7622106This name is funny as hell but I'm not sure even we could get away with that one.
>>7622127Alright, confession timeWhen I first got into the Doom games I played on Zandronum and didn't realize jumping and crouching weren't in the vanilla game, so I just assumed you had to slide under one of the gratings. The level was over really fast and I never realized what a mess the actual intended path was until years later.
>>7622468ShubCrack sounds kinda cool if we need to hide the joke even further
>>7623078Play the first six maps vanilla, up until the dead simple cutscene. If you weren't feeling vanilla by then you could pistol start map07 with gameplay mods.
>>7623342Damn, I like this one.
>>7623342I like it.
>>7623342Ye, this is it.
>>7622584OBVIOUSLY it was just an example to illustrate slog =/= hard, i didnt mean exactly this map, fucken hell do i really have to preface this shit
>>7623342This one works
>>7623478Yes. Half of /vr/ is faggots and the other is idiots.
>>7623489I take issue with that, sir.that would imply there are no idiot faggots present.
>>7623517Tfw they're hugeI've played Hedon and found out that you can play with certain gameplay mods for Doom to a certain degree.
>>7623546It's based off Doom, you could easily just run a replacer spawner set for weapons and pickups.
guys r8 my realm 667 oc i call him teh dork lord!!1
>>7623342Ok, that's actually really good.>>7623592Maybe we could use that as the name for the final map and final boss?
>>7622215One thing I noticed is that most of the optional areas end up becoming required if you actually want to get weapons, when pistol starting.

>>7623665IIRC Sandy made its first version, American thought it looked like shit then remade it completely. Sandy even said he doesn't remember making any version of Dead Simple
>>7623662A map so iconic even Doom 64 felt the need to copy it.
>>7623589I see,unfortunately the one mod I used didn't work for the pickups.I should lurk for more.
>TFW there's barely any Unreal Tournament fanarts unlike Quake 3.
does anyone remember that wad pack (from cacowards? im not sure) that was packed with some kinda oldschool pc zine looking software from github? I look for that zine thing, but forgot the name, pointing me to that wad pack would be enough though
>>7623598>tfw based Hugo officially doesn't have an explanation for Davoth's appearance
>>7623670Is sandy getting alzheimer's. He seems to be forgetting or remembering wrong lot of things lately.
>>7622484What does Raze even load specifically for the Blood files? It doesn't seem to use GRP like other games did.
>>7623804It's been very long and Sandy worked on a lot of shit since then. It's not like Romero where he worked on Doom and then spent rest of his life masturbating to gay furry porn
>>7623707I love 64's take on it, it's such a ballbuster of a map, and an excellent "boss" level, so to say.
>>7623598i think he's a pretty cool guy
>>7623804You try remembering every detail of shit you did 30 years ago, after moving on and working on lots of different videogames and tabletop games.Romero, meanwhile, didn't work on many big projects afterwards, but more importantly he's clearly also a very big fan of Doom, he loved what he was making, and he loves that people love it too. He loved Doom, particularly deathmatch, to the point that it affected his work effort on Doom 2, which then affected his work effort on Quake (which in turn affected later work efforts). Sandy put a lot of his personality into these games, but it's also one of many jobs to him, and I don't think he's nearly as into fast games as Romero, as much as more slower paced and methodical ones.tl;dr he wasn't nearly as in love with Doom as Romero continues to be, so he's far less sentimental about it.

>>7623983Yeah,they stand out but as much as I love UT,Quake 3 had a more recognizable cast.
>>7622127Because TNT is the worst IWAD
>>7624018Fuck that, I want pretty anime girl demons, and I want handsome bishounen anime boy demons.
>>7619318I miss Quake
>>7624023Probably because you played Quake more than UT desu
>>7624025Not by that much, Master Levels isn't really an iwad, but it has more mediocre and poor levels by ratio than TNT does.For its weaknesses, there's some very good maps in TNT which I come back to because I enjoy them a LOT, but there's nothing which ever makes me wanna go through the master levels.

>>7624008Hell yeah brother!>>7624051Using Arch Linux with KDE Plasma 5 for a sleek and fast user experience and the latest top of the line software.I switched when I got a new PC about two years ago cause as much as I liked Win7, no fucking way in hell am I touching that turd-on-a-chip Win10. Never looked back. If you're gonna switch I highly recommend it, even though I had basically no Linux knowledge at the time it was quick and easy to install and get used to.

>>7624331That's fine, but mind:>1: Check that what you're looking for isn't already in the resource .wad>2: Make sure to add the Patches in question to both the Patch Table and the TEXTURE lump>3: Make sure that the graphics you're adding works with the palette (we're using the regular Doom palette), doesn't have to be perfect, but it'll look nicer if it isn't full of color bleeding>4: Textures MUST be a power of 2 in width, like 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, etc, nonstandard widths like 50, 100, 192, 320, etc will not display correctly in software ports>5: Flats MUST be 64 by 64, anything smaller or anything larger will not work or render properly, they must be converted to the FLAT format to be recognized, it's not enough for them to just be converted to Doom's regular graphic format. Flats do not need to be added to Patches or TEXTUREs, and shouldn't be>6: You can use an animated lump to do animated textures and flats>7: You can use the Sky Transfer linedef function (271) to set a custom sky in a tagged sector, this includes any compatible sky texture that you want to add, and it can even be animated with the animated lump. (Please make sure any Sky texture is one which tiles horizontally) >8: The texture you want to use as sky must be the Upper Front one, offsets left or right will make it move left or right. You can set multiple skies in one level, this effect can still be used on a sector which has a tag to do something (anything), so if you want a teleport destination or elevator under an open sky, add the relevant tag for the linedef to point at, then make a new linedef for Sky Transfer and give it the new tag to that teleport pad, elevator, crusher, stair, etc, whatever, and this sector too will have your custom sky like the others.>9: PLEASE make sure to credit any resource you take from elsewhere, if you don't know the very exact origin (perhaps where you found it doesn't say), then at least mention the place you found it.
>>7624029AD 1.8 came out late last year, and an anon leaked a screenshot for a new big mod for Quake:https://desuarchive.org/vr/thread/7597483/#7601651Not to mention the myriad of custom maps:https://www.quaddicted.com/reviews/Unless you mean multiplayer Quake in which case I can't help you. I know there are some obscure discord groups that run old Q1 mods if you feel like playing sleuth.
>>7624423>new large quake modKino ahead
>>7624423>Unless you mean multiplayer Quake in which case I can't help you.There's a server from an anon that should have a QW server up and running in Saturday-Sunday though.clovr.xyz
I'm going through all the DBPs chronologically. Beat the first two, good shit.
>>7624478Also joe makes the most SOULful maps.
https://youtu.be/LbkpMAZuOk0This soundtrack rocks. Its both marathon and halo. Even going so far as to take tracks from both games and mashing them up.
>>7624032Also probably because half the characters are grotesque caricatures.However I remember a fair bit of Unreal characters because they had different stats. So you would see them and know what difficulty to expect.
>>7624465I think day one is a ktx server (deathmatch, but you can "votecoop" if you want coop), and day 2 is fortress...I can run other mods other weeks if anyone has suggestions.I'm tossing around the idea of having 3 or 4 days that are dedicated weekly to certains games in vs, and having the other 3-4 be more oddball. So how some anons here have Friday night fragfest, I might do Quake on one day, UT99 another, or whatever.The unreal server mod I'm using is nice because it rotates game modes. The ktx server is nice because you can do coop, but I'm not sure what the limitations are yet, whether it can run the expansions or whatever. Gotta get quake 3 up and running.
>>7624478Funny, I was just thinking about doing the same thing. I've only really finished DB21, so it's gonna take a while.
is there any easy way to emulate the console ports of return to castle wolfenstein and quake 3?
>>7624528What were different about the console ports? I know the DC Quake 3 had some changes like replacing some models with icons in MP matches and such, but what about RTCW?
>>7624546some prequel campaign in egypt, new enemies, some other stuff and co op with agent onebj also talked in some cutscenesin fact, the overall campaign was probably changed in terms of cutscenes and maybe level design and more
>>7624549>bj also talked in some cutscenesWeird. Not sure I'd like that, but everything else sounds cool.
>>7624509Oh, you're back! There's a post from older thread, in case you care. >>7611673>I can run other mods other weeks if anyone has suggestions.Since you're running expansions, Rogue's Capture The Flag could be a good pick: DoE's weapons and all. Plus Hipnotic's DM level seems good, not to mention, again, a few of its weapons for that bit of oddball variety.>So how some anons here have Friday night fragfest, I might do Quake on one day, UT99 another, or whatever.Yeah, that sounds great. More nights like that are better.>whether it can run the expansions or whateverDon't know how it is for FodQuake, but there might be issues for ezQuake. On one of the forums people recommended to upload dat files in order to make mission packs works, which I did (haven't tried without them yet due to other unrelated issue I had). Despite that, they still say that there're bugs: for example, I can't progress from start maps because selecting difficulty in SoA or episode in DoE, it just restarts the map. Even though you use different port, I suppose its worth mentioning since ezQuake seemed to be a more commonly used QW client.I did manage to run around in HIPDM1 and CTF1 though + final maps for both mission packs worked, but cutscenes are scuffed.Forum post for reference:http://quakeone.com/forum/quake-help/general-help/1930-mission-pack-1-and-2-startup-issues?p=281009#post281009...and yeah, I haven't tried older version of ezQuake either.
>>7624564>On one of the forums people recommended to upload dat files in order to make mission packs worksMan, I don't know enough about quake servers to know exactly what to do with that info. More to look into. I just did a quick test with -game hipnotic in the batch file, and it asked for progs.dat, so yeh. I'll see what's what I guess.I already do the expansions in darkplaces for coop anyway I guess, so I might just have to stick with that, but that already confuses the issue some. Would be better to just have it all under one port.When you gut all the gross "improved" graphics settings coating darkplaces by default it's p good.
>>7624509>So how some anons here have Friday night fragfest, I might do Quake on one day, UT99 another, or whatever.We can never have enough of those.
>>7624647What would be some good days/games? We already have sunday... or Saturday... night shitshow. (i don't remember).I'd just like to avoid running doom on those days.
>>7624664Fridays and Sundays are taken for doom, every other day is fair game. Every other day is fair game.
>>7624674>Typed it twicetime to take my meds
>>7624682That video is so old. Those kids are problably married with children right now.
>>7624642>I'll see what's what I guess.I'll try to launch mission packs without those files a bit later and post the results.>Would be better to just have it all under one port.If it will cause way too many issues, you might as well do everything on DarkPlaces/"NetQuake". You can try ask people on Quake's /vm/ thread, but it's "kind of" dead (I think I contributed to that quite a bit)... So yeah.>When you gut all the gross "improved" graphics settings coating darkplaces by default it's p good.Wait, that's how it is there? Like, similar to how GZDoom has texture filtering on by default? LMAO
>>7623626It looks great and sounds great, but it looks too easy to avoid, and having enough of them to be a threat might be very noisy. See if the sound becomes annoying with lots of them, and experiment with an impact-on-detonation variant
>>7624674Cool. So I might do doom mods Saturday nights. Whodunnit, or samsara survival or whatever is in these days. Then quake/ut99 Sunday or Friday.Would still like to write a script that selects a mod at random. That's something I'll have to learn first.
>>7624703>Like, similar to how GZDoom has texture filtering on by default?Yeah. Interpolated animations that break muzzle flashes, "improved" bullet puffs and particles, god awful flares by default.I kinda like the real time shadows, on their own, but I generally turn those off too.
>>7624690I don't think you can have children from m&m marriage
>>7624735HDest co-op when?
>>7624478>>7624480this gives me whitemare flashbacksi hate whitemare
>>7624478>DBPs chronologicallyhave to do this myself sometime
>>7624757gzdoom multiplayer needs a fair bit more coordination than what could be managed in a 4chan thread, to say nothing of the gameplay itselfit would be a more feasible idea back when we had an IRC channel and even a teamspeak server, but that all fell apart years ago
>>7624806Blood anon used a temporary chat room for organizing 500ml deathmatch. We could probably do the same thing he did.
Is true Black Tower has the highest enemy count of any official map?
>>7624757>>7624806>>7624810Given the janky multiplayer which GzDoom has, yeah, you would need to organize this more closely, and some kind of chatroom like with IRC or Discord would best help with that.Could just set up a small one where the link is posted in the thread when you wanna play something multiplayer in GzDoom, and you'll exchange the relevant information that way. Be wary of ACK.
wait GzDoom has multiplayer support?I thought Zandro was a fork just for that
>>7624549I think Egypt prologue was backported some time ago
>>7624480Not to be rude, but my map is better.
>>7625045tfw this nigga called his map "Misri Halek pt 2"
>>7625015It does, but it's not server based and requires coordination to setup.
Among these "Retro shooters" style games,Hedon might be the most disappointing for me.Not only it runs like ass sometimes,which apparently uses an outdated version of GZDoom but it's Hexen on steroids in terms of level design.I spent 90% of my time wandering around and looking for items than actually fucking shooting.And when it gets to it,is just arena style battle.I really wanted to like this game,the weapons are cool,I like the soundtrack and the enviroment but why the fuck would you make maps that would make Hexen feel straightforward in comparison?Fuck this shit.
>>7625015Zandronum is a fork of a fork of ZDoom.
>>7625060>which apparently uses an outdated version of GZDoomGo back to bed Graf, nobody has to keep updating GZDoom till it breaks their shit.
>>7625015It's not a whole lot more than a touched-up revision of vanilla Doom's multiplayer, but it's there. Worth putting up with for the experience of Hideous Destructor co-op.
>>7625015Zandronum (previously Skulltag, back before Rachael stole it from Brad Carney), is a fork from ZDoom made for the purpose of having far more user friendly and efficient multiplayer, because ZDoom/GzDoom's own netplay has always been really bad and clunky.
>>7625073I actually despise GZdoom exactly because it's filled with tacky shit I have to turn off.
>>7625060I wouldn't call it "hexen on steroids" in the slightest. But running around in circles wondering where to go is pretty true. It did amuse me I was always ending every map slightly under the par time all while thinking I went well over the time because I spent so much time looking for some random key. What the game REALLY needed was more visually distinct art assets.
>>7625079>because ZDoom/GzDoom's own netplay has always been really bad and clunky.It's still immensely fucking funny to this day that the GZDoom clique are obsessed with the idea that Zandronum is going to cave in at any moment and it's going to be merged with GZDoom to give it proper net shit.
>>7625090>What the game REALLY needed was more visually distinct art assets.I couldn't tell the health pickups from environmental mushrooms when I played it.
>>7625073Be more level headed.>>7625081Thankfully it has a search function in options now, so you can more easily find things, like the stupid blur filter. If you're getting new versions, you could copy and paste stuff from your old .ini to you new .ini to retain your settings. Or you can update your existing install.
>>7625095its best to delet the ini file now and again because playing bunch of different mods can cause weird fuckery.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaO4p7PNN4Msandy has scheduled a doom video
>>7625106Can you give examples? I've never heard of this before, but I'll look out for it.
>>7625090I meant the level design because is a constant back and forward and you need to read every single bit they give you and even then it's not that clever either.I'm not asking for being linear but tone down the backtracking would seriously benefit.We don't get to real fights until map 2 rolls in>>7625094I hated that. Make them glow or stand out from everything. It saves a lot of time from an otherwise extremely tedious experience.
>>7624703>I'll try to launch mission packs without those files a bit later and post the results.I did. You NEED those files: missing door in Command HQ was a good sign already (pic related: up - no progs file, down - with progs file). Mission pack bosses/weapons/ammo/powerups just don't spawn. While I'm able to actually start the campaign properly, it's very scuffed. Maybe I should've looked into more maps specifically, but I think that these few details are more than enough.>>7624743>Interpolated animations that break muzzle flashes, "improved" bullet puffs and particles, god awful flares by default.Yikes.>I kinda like the real time shadows, on their own, but I generally turn those off too.Eh-h-h... I'm more of a purist myself. Although I thought about maybe trying out colored lighting since Nintendo 64 version of Quake had it... while also having that awful texture filtering. Which you can turn off, that's neat.
>>7625126The par time for the levels are around 45 minutes.It's almost an hour,if a level goes with that time normally,you're doing something wrong.I know a dev want their game to last but that's also one of the reasons why so many dropped the likes of Hexen or Turok 2.
>>7625112>19 hoursOh boy
>>7625112Hope you're doing well Sandy. That video is inaccurate.
>>7615595Update on the map, everything done except the library section. I don't think I'm going to add new sections, but you can post ideas for the previous anon's library section and I'll try to build it, like before.
https://twitter.com/DOOM/status/1380181181560455170now here is an idea for a hexen mod
>>7625180Now that you've figured out monster teleporters, you can make the Cyberdemon teleport in.
>>7625182Who the fuck needs knockoff Conan Doomguy when you have Baratus.
>>7619319Dragonfly made a new MIDI album free to use in WADshttps://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/121123-overcome-a-midi-album/?tab=comments#comment-2291040Not sure it's newsworthy, but more midis always nice.
>>7625182geez, that looks so retarded.
>>7625091i wish it DID merge. i hate having multiple source ports. is zandro even maintained anymore?
>>7625430>i hate having multiple source ports. Fuck off with the tribal shit, Graf.>is zandro even maintained anymore?Yes.
>have to kill the Lost SoulsThat's why you don't use Zdoom.https://youtube.com/watch?v=1mwaLmb4gvI
>>7625507I'm not watching half an hour vid for this, by "have to kill" do you mean you can't complete the map, or you can't get 100% kills?
>>7625180Now it's really looking like a proper level, anon. Looks almost a bit 95ish in aesthetics, but in a good way.
New thread when?
>>7625576Never. This is the last Doom thread. GG everybody.
>>7624703>>Would be better to just have it all under one port.>If it will cause way too many issues, you might as well do everything on DarkPlaces/"NetQuake".Right before I went to bed, I realized that there's an alternative. Although I probably mentioned it before, but FTE is literally "all-in-one" source port. . Could be a good pick, especially considering that author also did Quakespasm-Spiked.>Hybrid NQ/QW capabilities (NQ+QW clients fragging each other!)>Quake and QuakeWorld are FTE's primary focus. Much time has been spent getting the engine to transparently handle the distinctions between the two such that it no longer matters what branch you're trying to play, FTE will just work, and in a way that is the best of both worlds.https://fte.triptohell.info/downloadsI would assume that >>7622084 quote about "millions of settings" are also true for its server client.
>>7625589Whoa...I WAS HERE!
>>7625507lmao just make a replacement Lost Soul actor which has -COUNTKILL added as a flag
>>7625595darkplaces can connect to QW servers and netquake/darkplaces servers. So there's that. And that's what I'm using for coop anyway, since netquake is out.I'll look into FTE though.
I'll bake the new loaf of thread

>>7625768someone beat me to it, sorry bro
>>7622106I'm going to be contrarian on this one.I like the name NIGGUR as a joke about Lovecraft's racism. For christ's sakes there's a monster in Quake called the "tar baby", I'm sure it'd be fine.
>>7625819>>7625824>>7625828wtf are you doing
>>7624781Whitemare is the shit homie what's yer problem.
>>7622106Only if it's Quoth or some other mod that adds enemies. Doesn't have to be AD, but Quake's vanilla roster bores the shit out of me.
>>7623153This is the first full month of Microsoft owning id.
>>7623782Davoth can take the physical form of whatever it possesess. When Doomguy got his Slayer powers from Samur/Hayden he was unknowingly possessed by Davoth, that's why Davoth looks like Doomguy.
>>7625136How does the progs file work, and how is it used?Is there something I need to copy, or download, or just use a command to activate or whut?
>>7625141>if a level goes with that time normally,you're doing something wrong.Depends on the game. A game like thief or unreal can hold my attention a lot longer per map. I think it's best not to think of Hedon as doom. However I agree that it has issues with pacing and level design.
>>7623645>reskin/remodel the possessed zombie troopers into klansmen for the player to blastLook no further than Dusk for Klan models, and I'd probably check out the neo-Nazis from Soldier of Fortune as well.>>7625841>replied to the wrong post>deleted>replied to the wrong post again>deleted again>made the reply to the right post this time while rephrasing a few thingsI fucked up a reply.
