I'm looking for a particular wad, and I honestly think I have it but with some cryptic filename.

It is like HonTE_remastered, which if you don't know, is a remastering of the first 8 levels of Doom II by the Russian Doom community.

The WAD I'm looking for has the same premise, but for the first episode of Doom I.

Unlike Knee-Deep in ZDoom, these mods are faithful to the original level layouts.

Does anyone know what it might be called?

I'd want the battle rifle to have a conventional layout with the grip and trigger behind the action, instead of a bullpup layout, not because there's anything wrong with bullpups, but I think it would make it look more distinct.

Also, I think they put thumb-hole stocks on a few too many weapons, I think I'd prefer the battle rifle (again) to have a more conventional grip and stock.

I'm fine with futuristic weapon designs, but there's other ways to do that besides making a weapon look chunky and having lots of bits and bobs on them (that aren't clear what they do).

The super shotgun I'd greatly prefer to have a stock, or at least the tail end of a stock for supportive grip (and looks).

Well, we don't shitpost too much (though it comes and goes), and because of how accessible modding Doom just is, it's pretty easy for someone to just start a small project and then develop it, showing it to people here and asking them for input.
Many people value the ability of anonymity as well, not just anons here, but people from other places online in the Doom community, Mike12, Sgt.Mark and TerminusEst frequently come here to take part in discussion, show off things and ask people for input.

I think the general idea being that if you're not a face with a name like on conventional forums, you can speak more freely without feeling like you're stepping on someone's toes and they'll take it out on you, or disregard your opinion based on how they know you, as well as forum politics, and that's why people from other places come here sometimes, to get different input, more honest and raw input. I think the mood of 4chan's /vr/ is different from other places as well.

We all pulled together to make 200 Minutes of /vr/, a speedmapping challenge, and I think it turned out pretty alright (even Sgt.Mark contributed a map, and he's surprisingly a pretty good vanilla mapper). I think we ought to do another project together sometime. Not necessarily a speed challenge, but maybe something like a Boom mapset for Doom 1, a couple of episodes maybe.

So says everyone but it never happens. I like the idea of "a Boom mapset for Doom 1" though. Generally /vr/ projects seem to fail due to complexity, which the speedmapping challenge avoided.

How's this, going off your idea:
Make a Boom-compatible map in an E1 theme by the end of the year. If we do it in Doom 2 instead, https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/graphics/d1gfxd2 will help. All maps done by the end of the year will be included (unless they're garbage). How's that?

Some mappers don't cater towards item percentage, though.

And considering it counts health and armour bonuses, I find it tedious even trying.

Point taken, although I personally don't agree. And strictly speaking E1 style would also rule out cacos, barons and lost souls. I'm just trying to be inclusive to get more participants. But I suppose an episode replacement would only need 9 maps anyway.

Depends what people want really.

Hello doomfags.

Today I come to you with a proposition:

You are to create your own warstory in DOOM, making use of applicable wads. Create, then Remain in character as you post your screenshots.

Recommended wads are DRLA and/or DRPG, as that would be the easiest to setup.

I like the novelty of Doom 2 having the shit gzdoomed out of it, but this pretty much ruins it. The visibility is too low and any surface that isn't being hit by a dynamic light is light level 0 and looks terrible, especially on the pipes that are everywhere.

Are you less leet for playing on a "lesser" difficulty?

>> No.2809649

what do you think? do you think you are less "leet" for playing on lower difficulty levels?

difficulty level mostly affects what monsters are spawned, which is under control of the map designer. therefore difficulty level is a function of the map and not comparable in general between different maps.

in other words if you beat Doom on UV doesn't mean you are a failure of a human being if you can't beat Slaughterfest 2012 on UV.

if you find a map too easy, go higher. if you find a map too hard, go lower.

Doom 64 still had light in every sector though. Here's an interesting bit of trivia: every texture in Doom 64 is greyscale. It had to be that way to save space on the cartridge. They appear coloured in game because every sector uses coloured lighting.

I'm prepared to put in the work to organise it if the deadline's the end of the year. As to whether it actually happens, that depends on if other people as well as myself are prepared to map for it.

As for the strawpoll, I'll come back to it at the end of the day (about 12 hours from now) and go with what the result is then.

Sure, so long as it's not Tormentor-style detailing that the player gets hung up on. I hate that shit. Generally though Boom has a lot of nice visual tricks that I don't see used a huge amount and it would be nice to see them used.

For example, you can use deep water with a low depth in all liquids so it looks like your feet are actually in it rather than going full Jesus and walking on top of it. You could also use the ability to make one or both flats a different light level to the rest of the sector to make, for example, fullbright nukage in a dark room.

On the topic of light levels, I skimmed through the E1 maps a while back to get what light levels Romero used. If we all used the same guidelines, I figure we'd get thematic consistency. Here they are from brightest to darkest:
>255: Phobos surface / fullbright for effects
>224: Indoors, very strong artificial lights
>208: Indoors, strong artificial lights
>192: Indoors, lit by windows to outside
>176: Indoors, artificial lights
>160: Indoors, some artificial lights
>144: Indoors, normal
>128: Indoors, dark
>112: Indoors, very dark
>96: Indoors, pitch black

>> No.2809734

>so long as it's not Tormentor-style detailing that the player gets hung up on. I hate that shit
Oh, no, I wouldn't do a bunch of shit like that.

I'd probably make sure that you couldn't snag on wall-posts and stuff, by setting out blocking linedefs so you could slide off them without issue (though only if it were to become an issue, and detailing with wall-posts is a bad idea for narrow hallways anyway).

Also, I probably wouldn't go to Gothic 99 tiers of detail, I want to be able to run it on my machine.

While the songs are similar concerning the drum beat and the generel temp/mood, the songs have a different root. E2M2 is in C minor and E1M3 in D# minor, I think. That's why they sound off to me in the mix. But it doesn't become so noticeable cause E1M3 cosists of very low notes, while E2M2 is more melodic and takes the lead. If you pay attention to the bass in the mix, you probably notice it, too.

That's also why I think they may stem from the same idea, but are two different songs and not one split up. But I'm not sure, what do you think?

>> No.2811487

The engine and renderer are still different.
They use Decorate and I think ACS, and it makes sense, those work (and Decorate is very simple and easy to approach) and would be no challenge to implement into an engine which is even simpler than Doom's.

A bonus is that this makes modding approachable for people who already had experience with modding ZDoom, they'll know what to do, and vice versa, if they have experience with this engine they'll know what to do for ZDoom

Well I'm back (much later than I said I would be) and the strawpoll is tied. So, since Doom 1 was the original suggestion, we'll go with that.

Here's what to do:
>make a Boom-compatible level for Doom 1
>using E1 aesthetics
>beatable from a pistol start
>with difficulty levels
>co-op as an extra difficulty level is optional
>deathmatch compatibility is optional too
>by the end of this year or 9 good levels are submitted, whichever comes first (please don't rush out shit just to get in first)
>if you want to claim a particular level, go ahead, otherwise we'll just order them in difficulty order at the end

If you want to be credited as something other than Anonymous, use a name when you submit or include it in a txt file with your level.

Also, we should discuss what difficulty level we're aiming for. I assume Thy Flesh Consumed difficulty but I'm flexible.

>> No.2811827

>I assume Thy Flesh Consumed difficulty

I don't really like that, personally.
I'm fine with challenge, but Thy Flesh Consumed just puts it on too hard for me, too many barons, too little health and ammo, too little room to maneuver (and then there's few places to take cover), there's never any room to breathe, it very rarely lets up.

I like the average TNT difficulty, where it's harder than Doom 2, but it doesn't go full Thy Flesh Consumed, and it's not a slaughterfest like Plutonia. But we're also going to add actual difficulty levels, so it's possible to do some compromise.

What kind of aesthetic theme are we going for?
Are we going for Knee Deep In The Dead or Shores Of Hell? Or TNT even ? (Personally I prefer the latter two)

In my own opinion, I think the episode would be nice with a theme where it's dark, like it's a moonbase, starlit sky, a bit like in Double Impact, I really liked that, but I'm fine with going with a different design theme.

I'm the detailfag btw.

Detailfag here, if we end up one map short, I could give it a try and see if I end up making something good, but ultimately I'd want someone else to be the judge, I can't promise it would end up being something fun to play.

Say, how do we do about textures? Can we add in some of the better Alpha and Beta textures as general resources for the project? I always thought there was some cool shit in there that would have been really nice to play with.

There's some really cool hell textures in the unused stuff for Doom 2, and I wouldn't want to go overboard with realism and make a boring map, but I think it'd be cool to put in some small office areas here and there, maybe with a kitchen corner and a toilet, using the office resources and stuff from the cut Doom 1 content.

My reigning theory is that there's two kinds of people in the Doom community. The people that like Doom's original gameplay and want more of it, and the people that see the engine as something to expand on and spread the borders of what it can do.

The thing is that Zandronum's playerbase is pretty much 90% on the latter side, playing with lots of mods and total conversions and more that have barely any resemblance to the original Doom. For someone that wants some serious vanilla play, they won't exactly have a lot of options of servers.
ZDaemon, though, there's always someone willing to play on DM. There's always regular DM servers up and vanilla co-op servers that are played on.
Odamex...there's players, yeah, but they're mostly holed away in an IRC where you need to set up matches beforehand. And frankly, this isn't really good for people that are just getting in to the scene, which is exactly who the infographic is aiming for.

Organiserfag here, I go away for a few hours and come back to a pointless argument.

Btw, I don't want to seem imposing here, so if anything I say seems unreasonable or you disagree, definitely speak up.

We're going for E1 aesthetic, so no hell stuff. Just techbase. I don't see any issue with having non-vanilla techbase texturing though, and I don't see any reason to rule out office spaces either. If you want to go full Tom Hall, go full Tom Hall.

If those goes well, we could do it again for E2 & 3, so as to not leave out fans of those aesthetics.

Multiple maps by people are fine. Based on the last failed attempt at a /vr/ project it may be necessary to hit 9 maps. If we get more than 9 maps, for sure we'll chuck them in as extras.

The reason I mentioned claiming levels is because E1M3 needs a secret exit and E1M8 should feel like a boss level. I suppose we could add E1M3's secret exit later if necessary though.

>We're going for E1 aesthetic, so no hell stuff.
Well, fair enough. Though I wouldn't mind having a little bit of hell stuff here or there, or maybe just a little in E1M8, where the boss is (do we use a Cyberdemon here or just Barons assisted by hordes?). I guess we can save it for later.

>I don't see any issue with having non-vanilla techbase texturing though, and I don't see any reason to rule out office spaces either.
I was thinking that some plain rooms and sections that would have otherwise been featureless or just means to connect one part to the other could be spruced up a bit to make it more lively and immersive.

Say you have a length of metal paneled corridor with little else going for it, I can lay down a carpet, indent the wall and fit a couch there, with a potted plant (maybe) and an end table (of course with as little snag as possible), then on the other side of the hallway the wall can be indented again, and there's a snack machine and/or soda-machine, as well as a trash-can.

>If you want to go full Tom Hall
E2M2 and D2M10 are some of my favorite maps (I'm not sure i E2M7 is his but it's another dear one), but I prefer later Hall maps than his earlier, more realistic approaches.
I'd add in maybe a lockerroom and showers, but, it'd have to feel like there's a point to it, like you go there to find a key, and there'd be actual stuff there, items and monsters.

The idea of putting some effort into attention to detail and thus making maps feel more immersive greatly appeals to me, but not at the expense of gameplay (real world buildings aren't made to play Doom in, so if you're making realistic maps you have to approach it differently), I still like the the abstract feel of Doom, I think we could find a healthy balance.

>If those goes well, we could do it again for E2 & 3, so as to not leave out fans of those aesthetics.

I guess the plasma could be fit in, but only on E1M9, and in a secret area where you have to battle something or somethings a bit stronger.

Do we throw in a backpack?

Also, I have an idea for E1M8, for the bossfight, there's one Baron, then there's mooks teleporting in gradually, a bit slow (but not excruciatingly slow), and eventually two more Barons come in.
(we're doing Boom, so we can do tricks with conveyors and voodoo dolls and all that neat shit, right?).

As for texturing, I feel we should stick closer to E1 style texturing, but we can look at altering or bringing in some different textures and flats if you think the solid brown surface would be boring.

>> No.2812624

My answer, which I think would satisfy both of you, is: it's not located on Earth. So no grass or anything living outside of the base. Although, if you wanted to have grass inside - say a hydroponics section, for example - that could be a neat idea.

If we use custom textures, a specific resource should be decided on. For convenience sake, and so stuff doesn't vary too wildly.
Also, if only 9 maps are expected, I don't think there should be any restrictions on what enemies and weapons can be put in a map. Plasma, BFG and the beefier enemies were put in E2 and onwards to create a sense of progression, and if an E2 isn't being made at all there's no point in sticking to that.

>Also, if only 9 maps are expected, I don't think there should be any restrictions on what enemies and weapons can be put in a map.
I'm fine with using any enemies (except the Cyber and Spider maybe), as long as we don't go hogwild with the stronger ones in the first maps.

>Plasma, BFG and the beefier enemies were put in E2 and onwards to create a sense of progression, and if an E2 isn't being made at all there's no point in sticking to that.
Well, we were talking about the possibility of an E2 and maybe even an E3 at a later time.

What if we include the heavier weapons now, and then if we make an E2, we add E2 onto the E1 .wad, and edit out the bigger weapons to add the progression?

>> No.2812657

>If we use custom textures, a specific resource should be decided on.

I think that we should get the alpha and beta textures, and maybe Doom 2 or TNT textures (some of the more useful ones maybe).

Something I think would be very nice to have is that Useful Textures Pack (I think it was called that), it basically adds a lot of variations and stuff based on original textures and flats, they can be very handy for specific stuff.

>> No.2812668

That could make it tough to rebalance maps if it's decided that an E2 is going to happen. They could be included in the later levels maybe? IMO, the BFG brings a lot to the table strategically that we're going to miss out on if an E2 never happens.

It's the way Doom renders middle textures when both sectors either side of it have the same flats/height/lighting, and the texture is too large for the space it's in. Change the lighting on one side of the window by one point, and the renderer will stop merging the sectors together and making that effect.

I've sped the fire rate up for it a tad and that feels better, but now I'm not sure what I wanna do for the actual act of getting the cells, I could just make it so you instantly gain cells on hit, if you guys would be cool with that.

Here's a blind demo. Recorded in PrBoom Plus, complevel 9, UV.

I didn't notice any visual errors, except for one door that seemed to be a bit too tall when it was raising (it's after the elevator back up from the nukage section). But, given the pace of the level, I didn't have time to hang around and look closely all the time!

Difficulty-wise it reminds me of parts of TFC in the emphasis on keeping moving and not getting bogged down.

It's a good level and I like the aesthetic. Two things though. Firstly, I had a bit of trouble seeing some of the switches initially. Not too much for it to be a big deal but maybe you could draw some more attention to them with brighter sectors or something.

Secondly the bulletproof window confused me a little until I remembered you guys discussing it in the thread before. Not sure what to do about it though.

Set the linedef with the trigger that changes the music to Special #80 (ACS_Execute) and give it a script number xx.
Then write an ACS script like this:

This is dumb. Exactly what you were going for, I suppose.

Terrywads are nearly universally boring. "Surprise, you were expecting something good but it was shit!" isn't an interesting punchline to a joke, and it's been done to death even outside of Terrywads. Mock 2 drove it into the ground enough by itself. Hell, it isn't even a joke unique to Doom mods.

Ironically, UACMN is the only one that's actually interesting for more than ten seconds since it has jokes beyond loud noises and bumfucking, which makes the "minions" even more funny since they're just parroting stale punchlines like a 12-year-old screaming about his favorite YouTube video.

Been getting some more feedback on Combined_Arms, there's a definite issue with shells being mainly used to replenish cells, and the particle smasher being batshit crazy good.

So how about this:

I change the Nailgun's altfire to a short range harpoon that doesn't use shells, but instead just snaps out, and then retracts, successful hits give cells but it has pretty crap range.

and the particle smasher's altfire uses a rocket and 30 cells per shot, also direct hits take longer before exploding, AND can hurt you in the process

I love how the axe alt-fire lets you just cheese most maps. Its enemy detection range and ability to move around the map is amazing, and it's *free*. The axe in general feels like a more fun version of the rocket launcher, the RL just feels meh in primary fire (Even if the damage might be good), and its altfire is a massive ammo hog. Heck, I wouldn't mind the axe in slot 5, similar to the Fighter's hammer in Hexen.

I might tone back the altfire a little so it's less retarded so it doesn't consume so many rockets.

Alright people, take a look at this :
I dunno whether it is a conversion of Doom 64 EX maps to GZDoomm or Doom 64: Absolution, but it works.

I remember that Absolution bypassed room-over room by altering map design, while Doom64EX implemented it same way original Doom 64 did (by changing floor/ceiling height and textures dynamicaly depending on where player was looking).

If anybody can tell me the instances Doom 64 had room-over room (I remember 2 instances but dont remember which maps they were on), so I could warp in and confirm it.

Anyway, what do you think of it?

fda for release 2


i think you could reasonably restore the symmetry of the two barons coming from the two pods by the rocket launcher. there is more ammo on the map now. it was the third (released by the lift access switch) that i felt was a bit much, so it's better now as a cacodemon.

the secrets were both good - not exactly hidden but not too obscure. but they were pretty close together.

i liked the sinking floor trap but felt the map became pretty linear past the red door. not sure what you could do there though.

sector 573 doesn't match its surrounding floor so the door is too long and the tracks sink into the floor.

It's a hard concept to pull off. Feeling scared is fundamentally feeling like you have no control over a situation, but when you have a big gun you are in control, and when you're playing a video game you're in control since it's not real. It takes a lot to overcome those two points. Alien Isolation did it with an alien that is faster than you, sneakier than you, and will kill you dead super quick.

A Boom conversion of CQC.wad by Sgt.Shivers, for the /vr/ 2015 E1 project.

originally downloaded from:


CQC.wad -> cqc_boom01.wad

- backport from UDMF with appropriate flags, line/sector special conversions, etc.

- replace doom2 monsters with doom monsters. revenants -> cacodemons, chaingunners -> sergeants

- replace doom2 textures with doom textures. metal2 -> metal, silver1 -> shawn2, spacew3 -> compute2

- fix a few texture alignment problems

- move entire map slightly to fix flat alignment

- make the exit inaccessible without the red key. you can either use the door or the lift, but you can't use the lift without pressing the red key pillar button.

- note: only reason this map still needs boom complevel is for the exit bridge, since there's no S1 raise by SRT in vanilla.

>- note: only reason this map still needs boom complevel is for the exit bridge, since there's no S1 raise by SRT in vanilla.

incidentally this can be fixed by using control sectors instead of abusing raise by SRT to get the right destination height, but i didn't bother.

not sure if i intend to work on it further. i guess if the detailing guy wants a go at this it might be good, since it's quite a plain map.

The obvious fix would be to mount an ISO of the CD but at that point you've already pirated the game.

fair enough. as far as i know he doesn't post here, but he seems to have close links to all /vr/'s well known modmakers, artists etc. so i figured he'd be all right with having his map in a /vr/ project. up to you really.

so guys, planet philip has announced another mapping challenge, this time its called "CrossoverVille" goal is to make a hl2:ep2 map that references another game through gameplay mechanic or visual style or level or something else. now there are restrictions, no content from these games is allowed etc.

now since this is /vroom/ you may have guessed that I am doing a doom crossover

my plan is to put entire knee deep in the dead on a single map BUT with half life 2 twist on it. architecture is obviously going to be combine based and enemies will be the closest hl2 alternatives and if I fit in timescale, then new textures will be made that will look more like doom

started working today on this map and got layout of E1M1 done, good thing about porting from doom to source is that you only have to worry about vertical scale, which means that putting whole episode into a map shouldnt be hard. now the thing is that I dont want to go too far from doom, but also I will have to do some design decisions that will alter level layout.

on pic you can see what I made so far, also replacements for enemies are included. now as you may have noticed, I have included chaingunner, which did not exist in original doom, reason for this is that I want to have very distinct enemies that will also be challenging to the player, and so I am skipping smg combine soldier. vortigaunt uses slave model, player should easily understand that vort is under combine control. hunter as pinky replacement may seem harsh, but to make it more balanced I will put fewer of them. also >implying half life 2 is hard

now the actual problem here is that I got no idea who to put instead of barons, so suggestions are welcome.
overall, I just came here to ask for advice on what to avoid so I dont fuck up.

problem with zombies is that they are not a combine enemy.

spectres are going to be hunters with transparent render applied onto them. since I am using random spawning they will have a rare chance of spawning

bigger problem than baron replacement is music, aint got a clue what to use since actual content from games is forbidden since its not free.
