The WIRED interview with John Carmack
a snippet:

At the stroke of midnight on December 10, 1993, an executive at id Software uploaded a file to an FTP site on the University of Washington’s network. The filename was doom1_0.zip. Thus did one of the great revolutions in the world of gaming begin—not with a spectacular launch party and a multimillion-dollar ad campaign, but with a 2MB file transfer.

From there, gamers picked up the ball; they downloaded the shareware file and immediately uploaded it to other FTP sites and local bulletin board systems. Download by download, Doom started to make its way around the world. It would become nothing short of a cultural phenomenon, popularizing the first-person shooter genre of games and shifting the predominant aesthetic of games from “Saturday morning cartoon” to “Saturday night horror double feature.”

Id’s previous games like Commander Keen and Wolfenstein 3-D were technological marvels that were starting to make personal computers a viable alternative to game consoles for fast-paced action games. At the heart of these innovative games was the technology created by id’s programming genius and co-founder John Carmack, who in the years since Doom‘s release has continued to create increasingly stunning graphic engines for id’s games. On November 22 of this year, Carmack left id to become CTO of Oculus VR, a company developing a head-mounted gaming virtual reality display.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of his most momentous game release, WIRED spoke with Carmack about the creation of Doom, the game development world in 1993, and his thoughts on the future of the series. (Carmack’s responses have been edited for space and clarity.)

Does anybody know how to edit the base campaign for mod uses? Just asking for some help because i am gathering all the maps and editing them using Dark Radiant but i want to know a way on how my changes would be saved for the mod that is in use, any help will do nicely :)

Not sure what you are asking...

The maps are located in one of the base pk4 files and you could certainly modify them in the editor then dmap them and pack them into a new pk4 to be placed in a mod directory. Shipping that in a Mod would not be legal though. To my knowledge, there's no tool to "patch" maps to include new changes though I suppose you could save all your edits to a layer in DR then save the contents of that layer as a "prefab". It would still encumber the player to insert the prefab to patch the map though...

That doesn't sound like a bad idea thank you :) Dude you are very helpful with these things you know that, well i was thinking on contributing for the Allied Marine Squads mod and revamping the campaign to be much more hectic and with help by the many different teams of marines, almost creating an Alien VS Predator 2 feel to the game its just that i don't have any knowledge on how to do it. Dark Radiant is a very useful tool and i thank you for you and your team in creating it, i'll have to keep experimenting but if you do know anything please tell me, i will appreciate it very much :) Til next time see you round nbohr :D
