[DM] Morgenstern - Released!

Morgenstern is a project that focuses on the Deathmatch game mode while utilizing GZDoom's OpenGL specific features, such as lighting, 3D sloped floors, and rendering optimizations. This project tries to reimagine the Deathmatch scene in Doom by importing some of the ideas from Quake 3 Arena, such as weapons that the players use and how the maps are structured. In addition, this project contains maps of various sizes. To elaborate further, some maps can fit eight players nicely while others requires a larger audience of at least sixteen players. Though, there does exist some maps that are designed for two players or four players.

Feel free to share your feedback, I will try to routinely check this topic while the project is still in active development.

I am loathe to suggest changes to a fellow mapper, since everyone has their own style, and the map is still WIP.
Yet I am going to anyway :D

I find the niches with the techlamp a bit 1994, with the gate texture drawn flat with the wall.
May I suggest a "solid" look for the gate

Also the jump pad texture, which I find very much out of character with the map style.
Perhaps something like this

You certainly have the style and atmosphere down pat, especially the lighting and choice of textures.
Kudos.

These sorts of feedback are always appreciated ;)

I can't guarantee of the cost of making this happening, but when I come back to this map - I'll look into this.

The jumping pads must always stay consistent, no exceptions. Changing the colour of the pads is fine, but changing the actual texture from one to another - will confuse the player.

Just letting everyone know that this project is still going strong. I only have one last map to build and complete, this project is officially at 90% completion rate. I am hoping to have an official beta build near the end of next month.

Hallo,

Just letting everyone know that I am targeting Monday 14.March.2016 for the first beta release.

TODO List:
  • Finish working on the last map. <MILESTONE>
  • Update compiler to work with Bootless Star 1.5.4; implement Git functionality
  • Plan patches and beta rollouts; ease transitions with minimal effort for end-users.


What to expect in First Beta: Regards,

Although I don't like DM maps im general, I had to download this ... if for nothing else than the visuals.

I gave it a quick run through.
In MAP08 I had to increase the switch time to 16, else it was just too frustrating

For Deathmatch, I don't want to have a secret to be a freebie. I want the players to earn it while dealing with other opponents.

Once again, you prove that you are an absolute master at texturing and detailing in your maps. I don't DM anymore like I used to, but it's still worth exploring your maps for that reason. They're quite dazzling, imo. :)
