Your Worst Nightmares Come True. Retro Jam 4: Episode 4!
4 days to create a spooky halloween episode 4 map.

But what constitutes an "episode 4" map?

- Dark and creepy!
- Traps!
- Cool map names!
- The player outside their comfort zone!
- Spawns everywhere!
- Powerups everywhere!

None of the above is required, so if you want to make something completely different, then shame on you, but go ahead! The below, however, is a requirement:

- at least one exit
- original BSP limits
- original detail level

A recommended but not obligatory wad: Duh!

I will be accepting your finished maps at retrojam4()gmail()com until October 31st.

I'm In, But 
"original detail level"? Bleh. You wish. 
So 
Can I get an extension? 
 
Zwiffle wins. Fatality. 
Well. 
- Cool map names!
- The player outside their comfort zone!
- Spawns everywhere!
- Powerups everywhere!


I'm psyched :D

I don't even know what "original detail level" means these days.

I do think Warren should convert his UE4 test area to Quake and submit that, with spawns and quads of course. 
Yesssss 
r_speeds 450? 
 
- original detail level
that sucks.

- Dark and creepy!
- Traps!
- Cool map names!
- The player outside their comfort zone!
- Spawns everywhere!
- Powerups everywhere!

that rocks.

4 days jam in the middle of workweek. hmmm.... I'll try it, but I'm not sure I'll succeed at it. 
R_speeds 4 Figures Minimum. 
 
 
Four days on top of work, family, class, other responsibilities? Prepare yourself for my masterpiece: Loaded Radiant, Looked At It, Did Other Things! 
Cool Name Bro. 
We have a 2nd place winner after Zwiffle. 
 
"R_speeds 4 Figures Minimum."

It'll be like Speed. Someone make a mod ... if r_speeds drop below 1000, spawn 15 tar babies around the players location. 
 
Detailed open maps are overdone and boring. 
4 Whole Days? 
I guess I'll have to pass. 
 
Episode 4... make sure you use the least used textures in the game and that you minimise how much room-over-room gameplay as possible... and if it IS room-over-room make sure that the entire floor falls down into a pit of spawns/vores/shamblers/fiends 
 
"Your Worst Knightmares Come True"

Now THERE'S a theme ... 
4 Days 
It's like "7 days" but instead of getting your face eaten by a ghostly Japanese girl, you get buggered by a gang of Spawns jumping out of a square CSG-carve alcove with poorly aligned texturing. 
 
- Dark and creepy!
- Traps!
- Cool map names!
- The player outside their comfort zone!
- Spawns everywhere!


I'll just re-texture cartographer's nightmare with E4 textures...

but not really. 
Slugmap 
I never speedmapped in my life, so I think it's too late for Haloween.

But I need a jam to map for. A goal. Someone fix me guidelines and a timeframe, please. 
 
4 days is very lenient for a retrojam. The others didn't last that long. 
 
Ah, so a retrojam is not the same as a mapjam... 
 
No, you toss geometry jam out of your rectum. 
 
Yeah, this is basically 'speedmap' by another name with a very very lax time rule.

--

Not sure I'll make anything, poor timing for me. Gotta focus on the map I am already working on so I can feel better about slacking off this weekend... 
 
Now seriously, I'm yet to learn how to throw a map in four days. Have to watch some of your casts. 
 
"Detailed open maps are overdone and boring."

Fuck off, hippie. 
Shut Up, Prenzlhipster 
 
I Live In X-Hain! 
You and your preconceptions. Its fine hippie, i expected no less.


Btw im joking and i love you!
