    Dome awards - Were they deserved? + Applicable mapset/mod thoughts

    Post by WolfForever on Mon Nov 26, 2012 12:28 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    The Dome awards had gone on for a decade, starting in 2002, before being discontinued this year. However, while there were many, many projects that got a well-deserved award, I feel there were also, sometimes, awards given out to releases that overall didn't really deserve one.

    Therefore, I thought I'd create a thread to discuss, focusing on one year at a time (from most to least recent), the deservability of releases which received awards that year. Thus the year of focus will start on 2011. There is no fixed amount of time in which the discussion will be on any particular year; it will be more determined by that when responses start dropping off for a particular year, I'll consider changing the focus to the previous year. So there is no need to cover a whole year at once since it'll pretty much be the centerpoint as long as participation suggests it should be. And it is okay to talk about a particular release from a different year if it happens to really be in your mind at a given time; the year of focus is just a guideline so we aren't all looking at hundreds of awards at once.

    The talk can be as simple as "deserved" or "did not deserve" if you'd like, with maybe just a few quick thoughts on why, or you can feel free to make an explanation or even a mini-review of the release if you'd like. So there's no real minimum or maximum amount of detail for this. Smile And there is no need to comment on every award (even if I do) - preferably mention the ones you've played at least but in the end, it's your choice.

    All awards can be found here. So let the discussion begin! Smile I'll always have the current year of focus at the very bottom of this post for convenience.

    Current year of focus: 2001 mentionables - use the Dome news archive (July-December 2001)

    Note: After 2002, this thread will turn into a highlight of what I feel were some of the mentionable releases (still by month) of the previous few years; the possible would-have-been awards in my view per se.

    I believe that is the first WSJ mod that put some of The Lost Episodes's textures and sprites to good use.

    Some of the best laboratory levels in Wolf modding... And some of the first (am I right?) - really set a blueprint for further standard laboratory level fare. I know I got many of my detailing ideas and overall laboratory sprite usage from this game.

    Yep. Could WSJ and AReyeP/MCS have been the ones that opened a Pandora's box of possibilities into Wolf3d modding?

    I'm starting to give up hope that WSJ would revamp all his mods. I don't think he has the time to do anymore Wolf3d modding.

    Wizzie, try Totenschlauss. The last level is even harder than The Lost Relic.

    LOL c'mon Wizzie. You should have paid attention to your own site! Totenschlauss thread is under Miscellaneous Wolf3d Topics. Here's the link to download it.

    Maps may be a little on the small and simple side, but the challenge of killing bosses more than offsets that.

    I copied and pasted Wolfercooker's spelling so I couldn't find anything lol. I knew he spellt it wrong but had no idea how to fix the typo.
    Now I remembered I played the first level of the game, style wasn't really Wolf though, so it's awkward for me. But I'll give it a shot.
