What Would YOU Like To See In A Doom3 Map??
Errr well yes quite. Can't believe no-one has posted this before.

Myself, not sure really. Haven't played it, but obviously know the style.

I'd quite like to see a few *really good* remakes, to show just how good the new engine is, for one thing. Something that shows a familiar map design taken to the next level.

And, I'm guessing a bit here, I'd like to see some traditional metal/gothic maps, proper Quake E3 style. I think the game could probably do that well??

Tron... 
Aye, thought of that straight away. A bit bloody obvious though, and I suspect Doom3 has out-casspqed Casspq1 already... 
Hey Tron 
[q]I want a remake of Casspq1: Hell in a Can.[/q]

Ssh, not too loud.

;)

This goes for SP:

- id or greater quality (duh).
- Emphasis on fun (rather than scares).
- Gothic, gothic and more gothic.
- Big, epic architecture.
- Gothic stuff that doesn't immediately scream "Hell", but is satanic enough to suit the theme of general evilness.
- No stupid gimmicks (Mr. cell-shading, I'm looking at you >:( ).
- Did I say gothic?
- Something based outside, at night, raining, and with dead trees.
- Some cool gothic stuff. 
... 
actually, i wonder if the q3gothic set would go well in d3? 
Necros 
not unless someone remakes it in 3d and bakes off a load of normalmaps and such like. 
well... yeah... and at the same time, align the blocks so they match up on a 8x8grid...
but still, i like the tan colored bricks. and purple. ^_^ 
Organic And Mars Surface Maps. 
I _really_ enjoyed the organic style "creep" in D3, I'd love to see someone go wild with this. All of the hell levels were awe inspiring. I spent more time wandering around there gawking at the scenery than any other part of the game. Absolutely awe inspiring!

I thought it would be cool to have a mars surface DM map. Having to keep track of your O2 would add a little tension to the standard DM match. Wonder if you can make the tanks respawn...

I thought that by now, most people have had enough of q3gothic in err.... Quake 3? 
Jago 
I'm not the one advocating q3gothic in doom3 though. 
Hehe 
well, i like the texture set! ^_^ though not in q3 strangely enough...

i like the light tan huge blocks look. i think a map made up of that coupled with some nice meat would look awesome.

but like i said, the q3gothic would need to be reworked a bit... maybe i don't actually want q3gothic, but a new set which is similar in that it features light tan stone blocks and huge funky doors. :P 
Necros 
I think the stock Hell textures in Doom3 are more than adequate for what you require :) 
... 
oh. i just got the game a couple of days ago so i haven't gotten that far yet.

this game is damn scary though. i can't count the number of times i've recoiled from the screen when something or other jumps out at me.

i've even shot at flying corpses by accident! ^_^

i love this shit!

i'm seriously thinking of doing some mapping in d3 later on. can't say i care too much for the gameplay from a mapping standpoint. single monster encounters is fun to play, but i don't know if i could cope with not being able to put in more than 10 monsters in the same room... ;)
i'll wait and see what the bigger cooler monsters look like until i make my decision though. i want to see the mancubus and the cyberdemon! ^_^ (through looking into the d3 resources, it seems the arachnotron isn't present? aww...) 
*Spoiler Warning!*

No, but you get the BoobieTron instead :P

What Would YOU Like To See In A Doom3 Map??

1. Less shinyness
2. Nudity 
 
q3 gothic in Doom 3 sounds like a good combination to me. i have Doom 3 BTW, i like it. But i really must upgrade my graphics card first before playing anymore. :/ 
I Know The Feeling 
My laptop handles it well, but my little speakers produce shitty sound quality. In fact Half-Life mods on it actually sound better than Doom3. On my brother's system with his state of the art sound system, Doom3 is an incredible sound scape.

I'm waiting for the first good custom Doom3 map! 
Heh, Interesting 
this guy is remaking quake e1m7 in doom3. Not as bad as i thought it'd be.

just out of curiosity, where/how are you finding these maps?

one central website? or simply by searching around? 
Underworldfan 
these ones are both from the http://www.doom3world.org forums. The WIP (Work in Progress) board has lots of maps being worked on. I'm not sure if it's the best place to see whats going on in the Doom 3 mapping scene, maybe it's too soon to see what the main community will be.

yes your probably right. probably need to give it at least 1-3 months. 
Wow 
found this map, so far easily the best looking user map for Doom 3. Its a little flat, but it plays pretty well for about 2-4 players.
