Essay duels
« on: April 03, 2012, 13:14:04 »
Hey guys, here's a set of 8 duel maps I made using only doom2.wad as a resource

http://speedy.sh/Kz3bW/essays1.zip

These maps were inspired and created by the essay-driven insanity I've experienced over the past 5 years. I am only missing one of the maps that I've made before, but the resources to make it just aren't there. And it sucked anyway. Give these a shot, I want to make them good, so let me know what you liked about them, what you didn't like, etc.

They certainly are not meant to look good, they were meant to look like DOOM so I tried my best to not give a shit and be abstract. Total build time for this set is around 7 hours, maybe 8 tops.

map list

map01: Shattered Dreams
map02: Dissertation
map03: Essay43
map04: Analysis
map05: Broken Memories
map06: Conclusion
map07: Methodology
map08: Thesis

SO I came back around to this, maybe I'll slowly update it more often.

Anyway, here is 1g, featuring some notable differences.

Map01: I removed a lift that caused stale gameplay and some dumb bumpy floors. It should flow a lot better now.
Map04: Made the bfg room a lot smaller and added an extra pillar for cover on Avernus' request.

Added 2 new maps.

Map10: Razgrazzle. Yea it's ugly. I will get around to detailing it someday. Maybe. Overall it's supposed to be a theme mash of d5m1 and d5m7, made for and inspired by Razgriz aka Strangle
Map11: Burl Tumd. Another 30 minute masterpiece, this map was made for and inspired by Eric, author of Burl Tumd and member of mxu. His favourite map is sipooma, so there you have it.

Don't ask why I decided to skip maps 07-09. I don't know.
