ZDM_14: Oldschool style FFA maps (first on Odamex!)
« on: February 10, 2014, 02:22:40 »
Hello fellow FFA fanatics!

I'm here to officially release ZMatch 2014 on behalf of Doomguy93, [DM]Mike, SparkleBunny (my lovely fiancee) and myself. We're oldschool DM lovers, and we all collaborated for this latest project. Screens below:

I'm releasing this wad first on Odamex, as this is where oldschool style maps seem to recieve the most appreciation. If you guys like it, I'll go on to release it on the other forums as well :)

Mr Crispy and Capo helped me out by playtesting this with me - Thanks guys!

Let me know what you think, good or bad! :) I'll pass all opinions on to the other crew members, and hopefully get them on Odamex for some DM.

Enjoy!

I thought it looked a bit disappointing at first glance but after running around the maps a few times I think it looks very interesting, weapon/item placement is a real highlight and the layouts seem fresh
A bit confused on how to get the big items and guns on some maps though
I'll need to play some games to really judge it

I'll go ahead and give some spoilers away now.
On map01, there's a grate that can be passed through. You hit a switch in the dark hall, then run to the outdoor bit, and a teleporter has opened briefly.

There's a computer panel with an out of place blue lightstrip near a green armor suit on this map as well. Press the computer panel to reveal the other secret teleporter.

In the dark hallways, there is a secret switch and light amp goggles as well in a 0 light, 64 wide tunnel.

On map02, there is a slightly different ickwall texture with support borders. This wall can be passed through revealing a switch for the BFG teleporter.

On map03, both of the green baron skulls on the wall activate secrets. One is the exit, the other opens a switch up the stairs. After pressing this switch run outside very quickly. A teleporter now leads to the BFG. There is also a wall that can be raised to prevent BFG/Plasma spammers from getting free frags.

On map04, there's a dead doomguy in one of the long hallways. He's hiding a BFG! There are other secrets mixed in these maps as well, sometimes hidden on computer panels.

MrCrispy has very kindly hosted the wad on one of the westside connection servers. Any time we're both online I'd be happy to have a match in them, even if my ping will be like 900+ :P
