Well, I once found this awesome Wolfenstein 3D mapset called Castle Totenkopf: SDL Edition, and I loved everything about it, the sound, the graphics, the levels, the weapons, just everything.

I'm asking, is there other SDL mods like that out there? Mods that use ceiling and floor textures, new detailed weapons with cool sound effects, ambient sounds, awesome music, nasty enemies, classic treasure hunting, and lots of violence and gore.

Okay /vr/oom, in 2013, I played a WAD on Zandronum that had a bunch of Counter-Strike weapons in it. The graphics for them were frame-by-frame taken from what I think was CS 1.6, maybe it was CS:S, but that's besides the point. I completely forgot what it was called and would like to play it again.

It uses the same sprites, yeah. It uses either a barrage of small blood attacks, a spread attack of larger blood attacks (with a chance to do up to 3 of these) and can throw out a blood-equivalent of a rocket. (Well, the ZD port does, the original just did the spread-attack thing)

It can also pull the player to it when it's put into pain state (so it can melee you). Getting it to work when the player isn't just standing still is sorta tricky at the moment.

Person you replied to here.

There was stuff there briefly and while I fully support Gamergate I actually spent a while posting on the /doom/ board over there asking them all to come back here because we've got a nice, small (but close) community here and it would be a shame to split it up just because of sjw idiocy on a bureaucratic level.

So after quite a bit of to and fro I'd like to think I convinced at least some of them to come back here with how much I was geeing /vr/ up, this is a nice place with only a few butthurt-by-design types.

You're right, E2 is going to see a lot of changes and finetuning. 08 and 13 will get reworked heavily, because their authors hate the current versions. 04 needs a thorough sanity check, because its pace kinda sucks. Once mechadon finds out people are changing things, he'll probably fix the complaints against 25. I personally think 24 goes way overboard in multiplayer. The secret slaughter arena in 26 needs to be a more interesting fight. Too bad our dev speed is glacial at best. It would probably be a good idea to set another deadline, because that made us work hard for the release candidate, heh.

Difficulty curve won't get smoothed out entirely though, it's meant to climax with every cluster finale and then let go a little. map01 will also stay more difficult than it should be, because Joshy made it too big.

Well, one thing I could think of is if someone is stealing supplies and hiding them, either some of them are paranoid and expect something horrible to go down, or they're hiding them there for later, so they can smuggle them back home and sell them.

Just made it up of the top of my head but it's not an entirely unsound explanation, at least to me.

Well, the UAC bases isn't your moms workplace, there's secret military research going on there.

There were gonna be offices and locker rooms and all that kind of stuff in the Alpha and Beta, but it was scrapped because abstract levels were found more fun and favorable to demonstrate the capabilities of their engine, rather than essentially making Wolfenstein style levels, for an engine that is really capable of oh so much more.

I really wish someone would make a full E1, and E2 replacement where stuff like that is included, as well as abstract designs.

I guess there's a motion sensor on that light you need to trigger, realistically, you should be able to wave your arm over the sensor to trigger it and open the compartment.
Again, I'm going to assume the compartment is some sort of access space for some maintenance use, and that maybe it's not frequently visited, or it's not even used anymore, so someone figured it a good hiding space.

I'm sooorta like that.
My place has to be recognizable as a place, but it's not hyper realistic.

Just like "Oh I guess this is a server room, oh now this is outside in a courtyard, maybe they have breaks here, ok now we're in a room with coolant vats".

Like it looks like it might be a *place* but not as we know it. Like I'm not looking up coolant vats in real life and designing a map around them because that's just detail crazytown.

It's like what Torm talked about in his detail guide, "arranged atmosphere".

I'm the same, the level has to have recognizable parts and have a flow to it. Some maps (like in BTSX ep 2) just have no flow or anything at all and it's just a big what the fuck.

that is true. i am reminded of the demonic eating machine in E2M4. perhaps a techbase where every room trying to kill you is just episode 2.

but seriously though i think you should be considering not "what is this room for" but "how does this room play". perhaps you could start by making a level out of abstract textures? so there's no way your brain can think "this room is meant to be a computer control centre" because all the walls are just gray squares.

Also keep in mind that hell subverts the base by it's presence and Hell doesn't make sense at all, it's hell. Strange creatures from beyond time and space live there.

How about a full mapset for Doom 1?

Do we need a theme or something?
Like maybe semi-spooky tech-bases and stuff?
Dark, with intermittent bright areas?
Do we work with Vanilla, Boom, or ZDoom?

Old disused tech-base with rusted out metal panels, dusty floors, broken and worn out lights? There could be outdoors sections too, where it'd also be really dark, leaving a tech-base, into a long winding rocky canyon on Phobos, to reach another base?

Another can be a mining operation on Deimos, a large quarry, the way spiraling downwards into a flattened out field, and then there would be some entrances into mines on some of the levels and on the bottom of the quarry. There'd be some earthmovers and other mining machines here and there.

We could swipe some of the moon textures from Douk and use those, recolor them for Phobos.

I honestly don't like Project Doom that much, the way every track uses the same soundfont and instruments make them all sound too much the same.

It works for Between Levels kinda, and Message For The Archvile, and I guess On The Hunt (I never really liked that track, but maybe that's becaue I associate it with E3M6, which I hated).
Open Season somehow becomes pretty good, even though it radically changes the mood from the original track (which I still prefer), Prison actually becomes really good, probably because it rolls well with the beat and the guitar feels less exaggerated. Steel Works is fine, The Imp's Song is fine, I guess.

Ok guys, I'm incredibly close to releasing my five level wad entitled: Tabula Rasa, because they were built as I was figuring out more and more features/ways to create interesting level. In short, its some loosely progressive levels designed for both pistol and progressive starts. Also, "hard mode" is actually a lot harder than the standard playthough with replacing/adding tougher enemies while also removing some stimpaks, medikits, and most other health items.

It's decently long, and I know there will be some gripes about how I used certain textures in weird ways, but that wasn't the point. The point for me was to push my knowledge of mapping as well as experiment with different level styles and arrangements. Additional detail is put into encounters so they're not such sorta surprisingly, but more down right ambushful to keep more experienced players in their toes.

Also, this is the wad with heavy focus on glorifying the chaingun and plasma rifle; there will be the other weapons too, but the chaingun can carry you through a plethora of encounters. Well, I've been rambling too much about my first level wad, but it's coming together in such a way that multiple playthroughs lead to different encounters without feeling like you're railroads through the whole level. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it.

ETA for Completion: 5 - 7 days, and it'll be sooner if I have an explosion of inspiration.

Not its not. Its a PrBoom fork, and PrBoom was a fork of Boom.

We need to stop using "Vanilla" when talking about traditional doom gameplay, it does nothing but cause confusion when mapping is involved. Vanilla in the doom community strictly refers to the original .exe

Chocolate Doom is allowed to be called Vanilla-esue, because the entire purpose is that its accurate to the original .exe. PrBoom-plus however, is too feature rich in comparison.

MESQUITE, TX—It was a dark afternoon. Cumulus clouds were directly overhead ready to drench the buildings and citizens of Mesquite.

Minutes before the rain started to pour, John Romero walked up to his
former friend’s house and rang the doorbell. John Carmack opened the
door a few seconds later, and was shocked to see Romero.

"We need to talk," said Romero, holding back a smile. He was really
happy to see his old friend again.

"There’s nothing to talk about," replied Carmack.

"I think there is. Can I please come in?"

Carmack reluctantly let his former friend inside his house. Romero sat
on the loveseat in the living room. Carmack sat in a chair next to him.
"What do you need to say," he asked.

>> No.2103128 [DELETED] 

>>2103127

"I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my life, and I don’t want to
have any regrets 10 years from now. So as much as it hurts my ego to
say what I’m about to say, deep deep down, I know it is the right
thing to do. So, here goes—I’m sorry."

"What?" Carmack couldn't believe what he was hearing.

"I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I was such a jerk when I worked for id.
I’m sorry that I’ve been worse since I left... the way I’ve let my
feelings about you be known publicly... the way I acted when we didn’t
make Quake an RPG which was the way I wanted to do it."

"Really?" Outside, the rain was starting to sprinkle down.

"My life has been so empty without you. What we shared was so great, so
spectacular, so… special, and I was a fool for leaving it. I was
childish and immature, and I want you to know that I’m truly sorry for
what I did, and I don’t blame you if you never talk to me again."

"John," said Carmack, who stood up and then sat next to Romero on the
couch, "I’m speechless. I’ve felt the same way about us not being
together. Of course I can forgive you." Carmack then put his hand on
the inside of Romero’s hairy thigh, rubbing it up and down. "How I’ve missed you."

"Kiss me," whispered Romero.

Carmack removed Romero’s glasses and threw them to the floor. He
pushed Romero back and climbed on top of him. He could feel Romero’s
hard, throbbing cock poking out of his shorts. Carmack rubbed his hands
through Romero’s full, long mane while Romero slipped his hands into
Carmack’s pants, putting his fingers in Carmack’s butt crack.

"That feels so good," moaned Carmack.

>> No.2103131 [DELETED] 

>>2103128

Eventually Romero’s hands came out of Carmack’s butt crack, and
worked their way to Carmack’s belt. Romero slowly unbuckled Carmack’s
belt, while having Carmack’s tongue in his mouth. He had forgotten
just how sweet Carmack’s tongue tasted. Romero unzipped Carmack’s
pants, revealing Carmack’s stiff railgun. Carmack never wears
underwear.

"Fuck my face with your BFG," begged Romero, who then took Carmack’s
huge pecker into his mouth. Carmack was moaning in ecstasy while Romero
was deep-throating him. Romero rubbed Carmack’s rocket launcher while
gently tugging on his ballsac with his teeth. That always drove Carmack
crazy.

"I MUST HAVE YOU NOW," Carmack screamed.

Carmack stood up and told Romero to bend over. Romero was more than
happy to oblige. Carmack entered Romero’s anus slowly at first, but
once he was in he quickened the pace. Even without lube, Romero’s
hairy hole was so inviting and cozy. They could both hear the loud roar of thunder outside. Neither one cared about what was happening outdoors though.

"Who’s your daddy," Carmack rhetorically asked while smacking
Romero’s bony white ass.

"You are John. You are!"

Romero then reached around Carmack, squezzing his butt cheeks as hard
as he could. There was a bright flash of lightening, so blinding that
it was visible through Carmack’s house, even though only one window
was uncovered.

"I’m going to cum!" Carmack pulled out, shooting his jizz like a
grenade into Romero’s long, stringy hair. He leaned over Romero, and
gave him a kiss on the cheek from behind.

"Before I go, I just want to say that I forgot just how beautiful love
and friendship can be," Romero commented. "Maybe we ought to make a
game about loving people sometime, John, instead of killing them."

"Yeah, if we get back together."

"You never know John…you never know."

"Well, thanks for stopping by."

"My plea…I mean, our pleasure." Romero gave John a kiss and made his

You know what would be kickass for Doom?
Rifle grenades.
Select one from your inventory, slide it over the muzzle of your rifle, and fire it off, detonates on impact.

You wouldn't need to load the rifle with blanks or anything, as modern rifle grenades can be made with bullet-traps, making them safe to discharge with a live round.

You could have a regular fragmentation grenade for splash damage, you could have an incendiary grenade that goes up in a big fireball and leaves a long lasting fire, and there could be a grenade with a shaped charge, with little splash damage but doing a shitton of damage inside it's radius.

It is not required to have off-map monster rooms wake up until its getting close to when they're intended to spawn. Which is why it bothers me that mappers just make them wake up from the start.

I thought the way to do it was to have the two sectors made into one, and then have one sector outside the map, yet by being a same part of the inside sector it'd let the enemy activate. Having that tiny pipe-line hole looks weird and let's lots of annoying enemy noise into the sector.

>>2104652
It's like this guy said, it'd be better to have off-map monster rooms awaken during later, small sectioned, rooms. That way the monster can activate, and teleport, all within a quick amount of time.

Could someone clear up two questions I have about HD?
First, what is the point of used 7.76mm rounds? I can pick them up for some reason.
Secondly, what are those little green flashes or light that appear around me sometimes?

There's several little features the readme doesn't explain properly and I had to scour that thread for most.

>First, what is the point of used 7.76mm rounds? I can pick them up for some reason.
You can combine them with spare 4.26 ammo to make new Liberator mags.
>Secondly, what are those little green flashes or light that appear around me sometimes?
They're vileshards, they fly around and resurrect corpses, provided the monster is weak enough. Stronger monsters require multiple shards to be resurrected. I think they also have a chance of spawning a turrette, a little floating thing that spits fireballs at you and is generally a pain in the ass.

>> No.2104883

Thanks, I occasionally found monsters resurrecting without a tiny imp anywhere near and had no idea why.
Found out about turrettes the hard way in doom2.wad. I thought I was looking at an invisibilty power-up instead it started moving and nearly fried me. Looks like it randomly spawns out of enercy cells, too.

Also, looking at a single old post, the combination for 7.76mm mags happens automatically between levels, right? I'm guessing it consumes 4.26mm rounds? The post I read said that 'the game assumes that you pick up spare ammo to cannibalize along the way'.

the trap is triggered. the monsters are carried over the teleport line by the conveyor. the destination point is occupied so the teleports fail. nothing unusual here. but in a traditional teleporter, the monsters are awake and will wander around. eventually they will walk over the teleporter line again. you can design the shape of the teleporter sector to maximise the frequency of retries.

what of conveyor teleporters? since the monsters are not awake, they just all get stuck at the end of the conveyor. if enough queue up they will block the teleporter line completely.

so you start trying to add failsafes. you put in a second teleporter to move the monsters back to the start of the conveyor. but then these can block each other teleporting just as well, leading to more stuck monsters, unless the conveyor is fast enough to get them out the way in time.

but if the conveyor tries to move the monsters too fast, the faster they're moving the more likely it is that they will skip the teleporter lines anyway (cf. linedef skipping speedrunning tricks. there is a theory that angled lines are harder to skip, but i've not seen proof of it.)

the only fully safe solution is to build one teleporter apparatus and destination point per monster teleported, which is a lot of tedious work, building sectors, setting actions, assigning and checking tags, and so on.

but wait. even if you figure all this out, then you want to try to teleport a floating monster. at that point, you find that they aren't affected by conveyors unless they are also under water. so you start having to make your entire teleporter apparatus the lower part of a boom deep water sector as well!

you have to do all this for every monster you want to teleport, remembering all these fiddly things that can go wrong. it's technical knowledge, effort, and attention to detail that is beyond most mappers. it's easier to just say "don't use boom conveyor teleporters, they're too fragile and prone to breakage."

Honestly, the core gameplay is pretty gosh darn solid, the balance and feel is top notch, I think that's the reason it's still pretty popular today, it's plain fun, even if you're playing the butchered GBA ports.

Now, as for dated, it has one certain quirk that dates it in particular, and that's aiming.

Basically, there's no crosshair or on screen target, your gun is centered, and there's kind of an auto-aim thing going, because you can't look up or down (mouse-look only allows horizontal turning), where the game sort of aims your shot the direction of the monster closest to the center of the screen, this is to help you shoot monsters that are above or below you (within your field of view).
Say there's a monster up on a ledge, you see him mulling about up there, if you center your gun at him and shoot, the game will place that shot up at (or as close as possible) him.

Now, this can certainly get used to (though if anything, this feels more natural with a gamepad than with a keyboard), but it's very understandable if you are put off by this, I recommend you give Vanilla/Chocolate/Boom a try, but if you can't get past the aiming, there are sourceports that add proper free-look, and the option to turn off auto-aim, as well as using a crosshair.

Personally, I use GZDoom, and play with freelook, auto-aim off, and with a small red dot as my crosshair, because later FPS games spoiled me on that point. I'm still good with regular controls, but I just feel so much more freedom this way, it just feel natural to place my own shots by my own.

Speaking of SSG, I dislike how early you can find it in Doom 2. Map02 has it in a non-secret hard to miss sidepath. And then Map05 has it right in front of you on UV. It's particularly ridiculous because these levels are a walk in the park with it. They should of made it secret-only in the first 5-6 maps.

In doom 1, The Rocket Launcher appears only in secrets until E1M7 (E1M9 has it in a non-secret sidepath, but thats a secret level anyhow). in E2, Plasma Rifle is secret only until E2M5.

Is there a map pack made specifically for HD? The farthest I can make it in vanilla is Map07.

HALP

How do I get Aliens TC to run on ZDoom? So far I got sounds and levels working, but enemies are only half-right, and weapons and music are still from Doom2. I tried the Doom1 version, I got enemies, music and sound working, but the levels are from Doom1.

Living armor and chaos revenant look awesome, but magebane a shit. Attack animation is awful, mana drain is meaningless unless you're surrounded... At least give him a faster movement speed if you dont want cloaking.
Revenants need immunity to their own boners too, mobs infight way too easily.

Sword throw is devastating, but doesnt feel nearly as good as the two older throws, specially in larger battles. It pretty much ignores the intended target and flies wherever the fuck it wants.
Cyberdemon in one side, huge army at the other, Blaz in the middle. I aim at the cybie and fire with nothing else in my line of sight = the sword instantly flies backwards, kills almost everything and disappears without touching the cyberdemon. It would be fine if the animation was similar to shining knight, with Blaz instead imbuing the sword with life or something, but not as a throw.
Speaking of cyberdemons and brainless devastation, one throw is enough to kill a lone cybie. One throw is enough to kill up to two masterminds. Quite frankly I have no idea why you even bothered to nerf the rocket-lance if you were adding something even better that could be paired with the shield. Was this update supposed to include the ripper immunity you mentioned earlier?

Almost all of the small quality of life changes are great. Gauntlet pellets always bursting upwards on impact looks weird to me though.

Overall I say its a pretty meh update. I give it a 9/10.

I think I'll make them move faster and give them a draining knife throw. Can't help the attack animation though. Sorry.

I'll look into tweaking the sword throw one more time. But cool visual effects don't come essay for me, but I might remove the ripper effect and just have the sword flip out and pinball on monsters

And no, no ripper immune enemies yet. I'll be working on that in the future
