Deimos Carnage (my first DM map)
« on: April 07, 2012, 12:59:00 »
Hey all,

This is my very first deathmatch-only map (took me about 2 days to complete). It's for Doom 2, but it tries to emulate Episode 2 of Ultimate Doom in design.
I'm yet to test it with real players (unfortunately, I don't know anyone who plays Doom online), but it seemed good with Skulltag bots. Nevertheless, I'd like to hear your opinion about it.

For your first map, it's really good. I like this map, it's quite well made and does a fantastic job of screaming E2 at me. I would change a few things though.

First and foremost, need some more weapons lying around. the map severely lacked weapon availability. Also, some health lying around might be cool, but not too much.

I definitely took some screens but I have no idea where they went.

The blue torches on the line of blue circles should be put into the wall. Also, that little skull pillar thing in the teleporter room should be placed elsewhere so it's not in the way of movement.

As for testing, you might find some people in #odamex on quakenet willing to help playtest.

Overall though, great job!

Thanks for the reply!

I could actually did test the map with 2 of my brothers, and we mostly came to the same conclusions about weapons/health. I also modifided some part os the map (e.g. made the plasmagun room another entrance).
I also added an exit, since I seen it in many old-school deathmatch wads, altough I'm not sure if it's necessary (but at least I could also add a chainsaw for fun :D ).
I updated the DL link in the first post for the new version.

Still needs more weapons, especially on the spawns wherever they may be. Not all spawns need a weapon start though.
