in doom is my attempt at keeping you abreast of all the goings on in
the DOOM community and, as you will notice, a busy community it is. It's
difficult to believe that after 20 plus years this game's community is still as
active as it is but, of course, ID Software has helped by releasing Doom 3
10 years ago (or thereabouts) and is now in the process of the new DOOM game
(sometime in Q2, 2016?). Can't wait to see the beta shareware, or whatever
it's going to be.....
Thanks to "Fonze" for taking up the mantle of
responsibility for TWID and doing the research and writing up TWID for us.
Also, Thanks to you, the reader(s), and Community, which have kept Doom
alive and relevant for all these years. And, thanks to ID Software, without
whom, all this could not be possible. Keep on Dooming!
We have a whopping 10 maps coming in from /idgames, so
let's get to it!
From Rayzik we have a couple Birthday Speedmap collections. They feel
like pretty standard speedmaps to me, but if that's up your alley you'll
enjoy these two sets:
These maps got some cool looking spots and are in Boom format; Doom 2
After that we have 5, count 'em, five, things coming to us from Memfis
called "Nazi Camp," "Demon Prince Sings the Blues," "Back to Square
One," "Refill," and "Disaster!"
It requires all three wads to run and runs on the Doom 2 iWad in zDoom
or better. Jumping probably required.
Being from Obake, you know it's gonna be pretty atmospheric and feature
some cool new monsters; the new lanterns use sprites Obake made from
scratch and I think they look pretty darn cool. It's a short map, but a
lot of fun to play. If jumping is not required I couldn't figure it out,
so I'd say that jumping is 100% necessary to complete this map. I loved
the ending and pretty much everything else here. Give this quick beauty
a shot right away!
Our next map is another short and sweet one, this time it's from Pinchy
and is titled "Home Suite Home" and features music from Jimmy! You can
find it here:
This runs on the Doom 2 iWad in Boom.
This map has mostly low tier enemies and comes in at just under 60
monsters, but it does has a couple little tricks up its sleeve. It is
also aesthetically pleasing and simple in its design. The secret was
well-done and a nice addition to the map. Good job here Pinchy and y'all
make sure and give this short one a go!
We also have a few maps from Xaser coming in: "dead.wire," "Sharp
Things," and "All Aboard the Mega Magilla Gorilla Flotilla!"
Doom 2 iWad, GzDoom as the source port
Ult. Doom iWad, Vanilla compatible!
Doom 2 iWad, Vanilla compatible!
Y'all know how Xaser maps by now; these things are beautiful. So hit
that download button and vent the frustrations caused from work right
Over at the Brutal Doom FaceBook page there's a new video posted up
showing tank and helicopter gameplay! Check out the video here:
Then download it and give it a shot!
One Man Doom has a couple nice reviews. One on a giant map called "Power
The other review is for a map called "Erkattanne" with some squiggly
lines over those "n's" and two dots over the second "a."
Realm667 has been cranking out some reviews this week, including one on
Chris Hansen's "Monument," as well as a few other really cool-looking
ones and even a Heretic (yay!) one.
Go check them out now!
The Zandronum forums house something that looks really promising: a
D2-crossover. If you think I'm talking about Doom 2, you're way off.
Discover the mystery here:
Slade 3 has released their newest update of 3.1.1, Beta 1, which
includes support for slopes in 3D mode! That's sweet! Get your update
|SLADE3 is a modern editor for Doom-engine based games and
source ports. It has the ability to view, modify, and write many
different game-specific formats, and even convert between some
of them, or from/to other generic formats such as PNG.
SLADE3 can be considered a successor to both SLumpEd and SLADE -
it combines the features of both, to create an all-in-one
editor. Why does it keep the name of what was previously just a
map editor? Because it fits :)
As with SLumpEd and previous versions of SLADE, SLADE3 is fully
cross-platform. It can be run on various operating systems,
including Windows, Linux and Mac OS/X. So no matter your
preferred OS, SLADE3 is available for you.
DoomsDay put out a new "Stable" build on the first. Info here:
If you are unfamiliar
with Doomsday, here is a description from their website:
Engine is a
greatly enhanced DOOM source
for Windows, Mac
OS X, Ubuntu and
most other Unix platforms (source
many games including
the classic first-person
shooters DOOM, Heretic and Hexen.
We aim to retain the original feel of the games yet leverage
modern techniques and technologies, including hardware
accelerated 3D graphics and client/server networking. A lot of
emphasis is placed on good-looking graphics.
That's the majority of it; of course there's always tons of multiplayer
stuff going on over at the Odamex, ZDaemon, and Zandronum sites so grab
a friend, get yourselves over there, and put a rocket in his chest
before he does it to you!
Odamex is a free, cross-platform (Mac, Windows, Linux)
modification of the Doom
allows players to easily join servers dedicated to playing Doom
online. The goal of Odamex is to add enhancements to Doom while
still retaining that "classic Doom feel" we all know and love
about the original game.
The ultimate first person shooter experience, based on the
original classic Doom from id Software! ZDaemon lets you play
with other players just like any modern FPS, whether they're
across the street or across the globe.
Zandronum is a multiplayer oriented port, based
for Doom and Doom II by id
Zandronum brings classic Doom into the 21st century, maintaining
the essence of what has made Doom great for so many years and,
at the same time, adding new features to modernize it, creating
a fresh, fun new experience.
