An intercepted distress signal lures you to a UAC black-site. Your mission: containment. Siren is a total coversion, of sorts, for ID's latest: Doom 2. Bringing a new rosta of weapons get through its exclusive campaign.
Hello again, Doomers!
@BarefootMapMaker and @DarynS here.
It's been a little while since we've posted an update on how Dragon Sector was progressing. Truth to tell, a combination of real-life happenings, and a creative block put a real damper on the progress.
Over the past couple of weeks, though, we've both found our creativity rekindled and we've been back at it.
So how is Map 5 coming along, then?
It's back on track, now. The biggest issue I've run into is trying to balance out how I wanted the map to play. I do this as I'm sculpting the map, and then I do several playthroughs once the map is complete. Until I'm happy with how an area plays, I don't move onto the next.
I've also had some trouble figuring out how I wanted the remaining areas of the map to look. So all of that has contributed to the delay. Thankfully, I feel pretty good about how Map 5 is playing so far, and I'm working to complete it.
As usual, though, we don't like to say when something is going to be ready, because one can never tell what life is going to throw at us. Rest assured, though, it's coming along, and once you play it, we think you'll have a great time with it.
As we mentioned before, Map 5 is inspired by Doom E1M2 The Nuclear Plant. We're taking that concept, and expanding on it. You'll have to fight from cover, use the base's assets to your advantage, and watch what may be lurking in dark corners. At the end of the map, you'll face off against a pretty tough boss monster, too.
Meanwhile, @DarynS has been working on understanding more of the scripting aspects of the game, and he's working to improve on the friendly assets. We aren't quite satisfied with how they work right now, so it's an ongoing process.
While we're here, we'd like to extend a sincere thank you to the folks who've made videos of our maps on YouTube over the past few months. Seeing folks enjoying what we made is very heartening to us.
So, thank you Blood Ground Gaming, shibuya, A Very Aggressive Gamer, Doom EX, ANDROIDFERRET, DraugraK, Martinoz, Kills Alone, and anyone else who has taken the time to play our maps on video.
We thought we'd share a few of those videos, here.
First up, Blood Ground Gaming's playthroughs of Maps 1 and 2!
Next shibuya trying out Map 1 on the Siren Mod
And finally, A Very Aggressive Gamer playing Map 1 on Brutal Doom Platinum Edition
That's all we've got for now. Thanks for taking the time to read this update. We look forward to bringing you the new map.
Take care, everyone!
