    The One Hour Mapping Craze!

    Allright, the whole idea is very simple:

    You map for one hour. (Noones gonna stopwatch you, but be fair to everyone else)
    You send the map to the next guy, who then continues on the map. He doesn't have to follow any theme or anything.
    You aren't allowed to remove someones stuff, only add your own.
    No custom stuff, as it could result in gigantic sizes. (This ofcourse, also includes custom wads.)

    To make it clear, you don't make your map before your turn, then just paste it in.
    You have to wait your turn, then start mapping (on the same map).
    You can brainstorm and come up with ideas, just no premade copy-paste jobs =P

    Try not to ruin the previous guys ideas (like adding walls to block everyhthing), such contributions will probably just be discarded and deleted.

    There isn't a "Only a 24 hour timelimit" (You don't have to stay up at 3 am, the map don't have to be worked on 24/7.), but you as a person can only work on it for 60 minutes. If you then hog the map and don't send it to someone else, you will probably just be skipped and the previous entry will be sent instead.

    You can do it several times, but we'll try and make it so someone who hasn't had the chance yet gets prioritized.

    We will begin as soon as we have a few takers.

    And remember: This is for FUN!

    Just post in this thread if you want to join in on the party.

    I'm in, sounds fun. One hour probably going to be hard, but it should be enough for a quality room or two.

    Last? it goes on until we hit max patches or some other obstacle that prevents us from continuing, then we start a new map =P

    I think I'll adress some issues aswell:

    [01:08:04] oh yeah, another dumb question. hehe. Can i make a door to someones room?
    [01:08:21] if they have wall around it, i mean

    That would go under the "No blocking stuff" rule. If this happens, either ask me, Nih or Puchi on what to do.

    And again, there is no general timelimit, so you don't have to sit up in the middle of the night just to finish the map, although you shouldn't sit on the map for several days. When it's your turn, we would be grateful if you work on it as soon as possible. You only have 60 minutes to work on it though. =P

    Re: The One Hour Mapping Craze!

    I'm in.

    A few questions though. If we can't change anything, what do we do if it doesn't compile or who fixes it? And are we supposed or allowed to do test compiles and in-game tests during or after that 60 minutes? Also can we add stuff inside other people's rooms or do we just make our own? Or more likely, does "anything go" as long as it goes under the posted rules?

    If the map doesn't work, you are allowed to fix it after the 60 minutes. Although, that doesn't mean you can slap out 845 entities without setting them up properly, and then claim to be fixing them afterwards.

    Yes, you are allowed to work in other peoples "rooms", as long as you don't ...you know... completely ruin it or remove any of it. (By ruin I mean add nonse all over a nicely made corridor just in spite. It doesn't benefit anyone.)

    Re: The One Hour Mapping Craze!

    It would probably be a good idea if everyone added some sort of prefix to all targetnames of the entities they have added, such as "nih_door1", so everyone doesn't go around triggering other peoples stuff in the end. I kinda forgot that when I did my turn, but if everyone does it from now on it should be ok.

    Re: The One Hour Mapping Craze!

    I'll be adding sil_
    However, I think the chances are small that this map is still compileable when it arrives at person 10 or so.
    I mean, there are 10 hours of work in it then. I hope my turn comes soon.
