Not Sure Of Ideals
I'd love to have the chops to be a part of a larger project but I have a ways to go. As a solo mapper, I've been planning a 3 level mini-episode for a while and the first map is about 20% complete. I'll be using progs_dump. The maps should be pretty short, the whole thing will be playable in one sitting as that's one of my preferences due to lack of time.
I would love to see more large scale projects and less jams in 2019. But I don't have a preference on format.
I haven't really done any mapping in a while but I have a few unfinished map files laying around. Ideally I'd like to crank out the rest of those maps and release them along with an updated version of Threat Assessment, since they're all in a similar theme.
#1: Funny funny man.
#2: That's good! I think that in principle, episodes should be composed of maps of slightly smaller size than what passes as normal nowadays, if only to ensure maximum replayability.
#3: That would be really cool, since I enjoyed the theme of Threat Assessment a lot.
Considering how many maps each "jam" has, it shouldn't be hard to organize a few episode jams. Ones that actually get finished, that is.
Maybe with some guidelines to be laid out beforehand, like how the theme and progression is supposed to be, e.g. base -> terrain -> castle -> dungeon -> hell - and then people can claim a spot like they sometimes do in Doom megawad projects. Of course all in a way that avoids getting carried away too much (perhaps something like <100 monsters / 10 minutes playtime / 4096 size limit etc.)
I wouldn't even mind some mini episodes like RPGSMSE.
Yeah, The Terracotta Ep Using Progs_dump Is Gonna Happen At Some Point
But before that happens, I'll play around with the 1.0 version and possibly release 1 or 2 maps whilst waiting for the new version, which will include lots of new goodies I'll gladly use in the episode (like breakables, yum-yum).
One thing is for sure, my sm186 map will be making it's reappearance in the episode as full-fledged map.
Huh, what a coincidence. I have plans for a 2-3 map unit in the works.
Episodes definitely have a charm to them, and I'm all for seeing more episode releases in 2019. I enjoy the linear power progression and getting to start maps with more than the SSG. For that kind of progression 3-6 maps works. I've been working on an episode too.
Well you can at least expect a single map release from me. It was a map intended for the episode I mentioned but it ended up not really fitting in the progression I had planned. I know there's kind of a glut of largish single maps but w/e. I still want to release an episode but unfortunately I only have so much time...
Crossing my fingers for Newhouse's blue ep atleast.
Don't forget "Coffee Quake". Four episodes with 74 levels:
