Capstone 1.2.15 REUPLOADED

Capstone is what I call it
just 9 levels for ultimate doom

Starting later this week, the remastering/update is going to start full force

Im getting the DOOM mod back on track, im about to commit serious time into the remastering and i have a friend and fellow doom modder https://m.facebook.com/Tristan885sPage helping with it.

things need to do:

-fix up and make some of the levels flow better and not look like ass

-add in music provided by my girlfriend

-make it so it doesnt require both doom and doom 2 (was a work around for adding in episodes) this causes some minor issues.

-make the text and menu items actually fit to the original doom scale and not look like shit

-maybe port the mod entirely to make full use of GZDoom and the UDMF map format (which would make the remastering take longer as it uses HEXEN format with Zandronum, but it would be nice if we could make it so it works with GZDoom AND Zandronum as most of my fans of my mod are from within the Zandronum community)

-Add a more coherent story, its kinda generic atm and id love to have a text screen at the start of every level and end of every level with the possibility of changing backgrounds.

I now present my first map pack.
this is basically a project for school,
but the story follows as thus
the marine heads home after a day at the base, when he is attacked,
he fights his way into his home to find most of his stuff raided by the monsters,
he heads through the sewers to the city, and takes part in a battle to defend the city,
he takes a Truck to the Military base,
clears it out, and takes a motorized lift down to the drilling site,

well, turns out the military drilled into purgatory,
you fight your way through hell, and 2 Gauntlet arenas to fight the mastermind behind the apocalypse against mankind.

needs ultimate doom, doom 2 and zandronum to run
put all of these in the zandronum folder (including the capstone.wad) and run the batch file


I just need people to test this thing and tell me whats wrong with it if anything is.
made it a bit longer for level one, and a little longer for level 7, made a HUGE change in one area and it makes it seem more interesting throughout because of it.
hope you like it. also I tweaked hard difficulty a bit so its a lot harder ;)

also has anyone found any of the 2 Easter Eggs in the game?
one can be found on accident in E1M5,
and one is found at the very end of the game...


(sorry if its a bit big, I just like having the good sound quality)

this mod includes
whole new level set for Episode 1
new monsters
New music
and a TON of ACS scripting....

tell me what you think
(I still need to do the intermission stuff and do the level name stuff,
if anyone can tell me how to do that, please let me know, as I don't want people to think they are going to the hanger or phobos anomaly, I want them to think they are going to the levels that are named in the map info)

(mainly this is based off of a house I made in Rapid Visualization at ITT, that led to it being made from a drawing to a 3D model, to a Physical model, then into 2 levels from a game)

I might want to do some more revisions to this, as I forgot some fences and should throw in another marine into E1M4.
well play through and tell me what you all think

Played through the maps and I have this to say:

1. I see you put more effort in your later maps but they were shorter than the first ones.
2. You should make longer levels.
3. The level design from the start finishing with E1M7 is bland.

You should always think of ways to improve the looks of your maps. E1M8, for example, has a good entry to a good looking arena.
Same for E1M9. You should look into other people's maps and see how they've done things and how you should too.

I have to say, I made E1M4 too hard....
I keep dying XD
yeah E1M7 seems a bit bland, Im not really sure how I could go from it, maybe making the areas bigger and a little longer.
idk how would you improve on it,
I really like the idea of how E1M7 ends, since you are kinda swept away into a ocean of blood.
and I noticed some issues in E1M2 that I will fix as well.

uh I keep ending up having like 20 health once every enemy outside is dead, (mind you I usually play Doom and Doom II on Ultra Violent...)

also ive noticed in some levels there are too many and in some too few health items.

Keep in mind, some of the people who will play this are not PC gamers, just dudes in there 30's and 40's some in their 20's (this is a school project)


im doing some changes as we speak.

Trailer will come within a week because I have to play through it, edit it and upload it to youtube.

heres the newest and hopefully the final version.
made it a bit longer for level one, and a little longer for level 7, made a HUGE change in one area and it makes it seem more interesting throughout because of it.
hope you like it. also I tweaked hard difficulty a bit so its a lot harder ;)

also has anyone found any of the 2 Easter Eggs in the game?
one can be found on accident in E1M5,
and one is found at the very end of the game...


FYI,
ElGuitarTom did all the music for my Mod
and Ron Perlman is narrating my trailer ;)

id also like to add this

thanks to the community here, you guys and the #zdoom@esper.net have been really helpful and I couldn't have done ANY of this without you guys~!

its public you can view it.

this isn't a vid of the final version BTW...
but its the best I can do on short notice

and YES the easter egg on the last level is me

btw I seem to be good at making Gauntlet type maps/arena games,

if you all like them, id probably focus my attention onto making them.
but if I want to do it the way I want to, id need someone who is good at taking resources from hexen and heretic and putting them into doom II/ultimate doom

update on this project
I noticed some textures that were off,
I have to tweak some things AGAIN as I sadly had to cheat to beat the military base...
but I got enough footage to finish the trailer

even after I turn in this project to school,
ill continue fixing it up,
adding more content, sequels etc.

so expect a v1.21 sometime before tuesday

noticed some more issues, monsters still able to see through walls on level two.
will fix today
also the game works well with brutal doom, albeit its a bit hard.
im trying to look for a way to change some things as I get some real big slowdown on the 4th level
Do not play the 4th level with brutal doom XD
else you will have a bad day and a too easy level
my i7, 16gb of ram and gtx 770 4gb aren't enough to handle it above 40fps...
in my newest version ill leave an icon file incase you just want to make a shortcut on your desktop, the help file I had in the original version.

so i downloaded the wad to see why its filesize was so ridicilously large, and my suspicion was right: oversized music files.
i can compress them for you with minimal quality loss if you want and reduce the bloated filesize of this project. (considering they take up 95% of the filesize)

that aside juding from the screenshots the maps look fine to me asuming you are quite new to doom mapping/modding.

*edit*
here is a zip of all the songs i could find in the wad and compressed them
its about 18MB and D_HMAN is of higher quality now and smaller size.
