MAP59: Club Doom

Hey, it's that famous game from 1993!

Doom is a first-person shooter, reigning the genre in 1993 and 1994. It revolutionised shooters as we know them today, and added some key features - switches, keys, puzzling maps, painful floors and none other than mindless killing - to give us an amazing game that's still popular today.

If you don't own a copy of Doom, you can grab the shareware copy here. And when you're ready, hunt down the Doom Collector's Edition for 3 excellent Doom titles.
Alternatively, you can grab the whole lot from Steam and get Master Levels for Doom II.

Check out the discussion board and the chat channel to have a good, erm, discuss.

Source Ports
ZDoom - an awesome source port for every classic Doom running, plus support for Heretic, Hexen, Strife and various indie games. Plus, this has an immense amount of new features on top of the classic Doom gameplay.
GZDoom - an OpenGL-enhanced version of ZDoom. Think much prettier WADs and you're on the right track.
Skulltag - One of the finest sourceports for multiplayer Doom. Includes a smattering of multiplayer staples as well as new offerings.
Odamex - Another good multiplayer sourceport, Odamex focuses more on retaining classic gameplay with new ZDoom features.

Editing Tools
Slade3 - a mashup of lump editor and map editor which is still in-progress but includes the UDMF map format used in ZDoom.
SLumpEd - like XWE, but slightly more advanced.
Doom Builder - WAD map editor. Good for designing levels and stuff, and very easy to use.
eXtendable WAD editor - not being updated any more, but even so, very easy to use and helps with replacing graphics in your PWADs, and even IWADs. Keep a backup copy, though. Can also edit various other games other than Doom.

List of editing tools - straight from the horse's ZDoom wiki.

Other things
Freedoom - this is meant to make the Doom engine free to the masses. If you want to play the thing, however, you're better off buying Doom Collector's Edition.
Dropbox, some lovely file hosting and free! Upload up to 2.0GB (for a basic account) and download it quickly, too.

Please notify me of any tools you want to see on this list!

Submitting Art
Upload your art or submit it to our group in the Art folder.
All art is appreciated as long as it's to do with Doom or any related game!
Oh, and nothing too...questionable, let's say.

Submitting WADs
Basically, upload a deviation and put it in the Club's gallery - provide a couple of screenshots, perhaps an overview of the maps. Remember to upload it into the WADs folder.
Include a download link and say what tools you used! It would be nice to see what you used to make your WAD.
Also, you'll need to tell us which game it's for - Doom, Hexen, Strife, etc...

Submitting Resources
Anything that you've created for games and would like to share is greatly appreciated!
Upload a deviation showcasing your resource and make sure you submit it to the WADs folder! Also, tell us what your license is - we wouldn't want to sell your work without first getting permission or anything like that.
We accept every kind of resource - just as long as it isn't that infamous graphic from Imp Encounter. :O_o:

So there you have it. Thanks for visiting!

A fun little thing...
Vaneetra has brought it upon herself to create an 'ask' blog on behalf of the Doom monster community. Why not take a look yourself? :eyes:

Mapmakers Unite!
A new group specifically for mapmakers and map designers is now open! This encompasses Doom, of course! Here it is: :iconvideoforge:
Have fun.

Hiring people to help with doom rpg!

EDIT:: This is still being worked on! wtg62 has completed the first alpha which, while not available for download just yet, shows some progress.
Check it out here:

Lately wtg62 has decided to hire people to help with the an rpg he has been working on, The following jobs are open. If there is a green bullet it means that the job has been taken.

:bulletred: Music (x2)
:bulletred: Sounds (x3)
:bulletred: Sprites (x5)
:bulletred: Decorate (x5)
:bulletred: Textures (x5)
:bulletred: Mapping (inf.)
:bulletred: Acs Scripting (inf.)
:bulletred: Bug fixing (x3)
:bulletred: Testing (x5)
:bulletred: Plot and ideas (x5)
:bulletred: Extra and mini-game programming. (x5)
:bulletred: Special FX (x5)
:bulletred: Misc. (inf.)

As well as that he is starting fresh, and restarting from what he has done so far, so people can come up with a story.
He still though has ideas for plot, monsters, and etc. in his mind.
He will keep monsters he has already added, and might remove some.
You must be a zdoomer and keep in mind the following:

:bulletgreen: We will use doom2.wad as the IWad
:bulletgreen: We do allow multiple jobs for one person
:bulletgreen: Report bugs if you are a tester to the bug fixers
:bulletgreen: We will need a host for the Wad files, since wtg62 is unable to.*
:bulletgreen: As soon as we make a little progress, we will upload what we have so far for the testers
:bulletgreen: E-mails are required for sharing progress (like sending wad files with things people have made for the rpg).
:bulletgreen: We will be using ZDoom's UDMF Format because it is flexible and easy to work with.

*Note that all members have access to Stash, dA's file storage utility. You can upload your Wads there if you wish.

DOOM Revisited Contest
I received a message from da-joint-stock explaining about a recent contest which he's started up. Here's what I got:
"A few weeks ago I had an awesome idea to recreate some scene from DOOM using Stock images here on DA. After I finished the first one I decided to make a Contest of it, to see if anyone else would enjoy it too. The result? The DOOM Revisited Contest!!
The main purpose is to create premade backgrounds usable in photomanipulations, but that is entirely optional. However, no monster or characters are allowed in the scene - just the background. If they want to create a second image with monsters/excessive gore in it, that's up the them, but I had to limit the goriness in the actual entries :noes:"

The full details are riight here:…

If you want to enter your, um, entry into our own Contest as well, feel free!

Wad Watch
Keep an eye out for the newest, best WADs straight from the horse's mouth - by which I mean our gallery. 5 WADs will be in each list, as specified below:

Anybody who submits good WADs to our Gallery (in the WADs and Resources folder) gets a place in the month's WAD Watch. They have to be downloadable WADs (in that you've put a link somewhere to download the file), not just screenshots.

Work In Progress WADs will be in a different list to completed WADs, and nothing in between.

External Wads will be another list based on any kinds of WAD that's not in our Gallery. This means stuff from Doomworld's /idgames, Wads In Progress, and suchlike. If you see a good one, give us a bell.

If there's enough interest in it, I'll consider putting WAD Ideas in too - basically, if somebody has a good idea but can't map for toffee, they can give it to me and I'll put it in for others to try out.

Well, the first WAD Watch will be up as soon as we get more WADs.

'Till then, happy mapping!

Just thought i'd point out to you guys this trailer I made for a new Doom Movie.…
Hey guys, guess what? DOOM 4 IS STILL ALIVE!, on May 23 in this year comes Wolfenstein The New Order with Doom 4 beta access.
Wolfenstein looks a bit crap, hopefully Doom 4 won't be so linear

I agree, from what I've seen it does look like a very linear Nazi shooting gallery :/
Happy Birthday Doom!
