    Team Raycast is looking for experienced community mapper

    Post by doomjedi on Wed Jul 26, 2017 10:50 pm

    "Team RayCast" has been on a modding halt for quite some time now (since February 2017 I'd say) with next mod development paused (my recent BoA involvement has some part in it, but is not the main reason by far, just totally legit personal life issues of one core team member who is an amazing modder and has done so much for the team so far - hopefully to return in the future).
    This is very unfortunate as many would say and we were a team which pushed Wolf3D modding boundaries in memorable mods.

    If you like "Team RayCast" and what TR has done so far, if you are ready to be a "team player" (and not "lone modder"), if you're (proven) good in oldschool mapping and want to try more advanced engines/mapping - PM me or write here.
    Obviously I'm a bit picky here to keep team's modding quality, and so I want an established/experienced community mapper.
    Oldschool mapping experience is enough as long as you are ready to also try/learn something new and advanced. We even have oldschool mod option as well in development if that would be a more comfortable start before jumping deep into advanced engines.

    Thank you all in advance. Hope we can revive "Team RayCast" and keep the mods coming, including big sequel mod which development was stopped mid-way.

    I wish I'd help but I do not fit your criteria in any way on that regard. Besides, I'm in the process of transitioning away from gaming to the point that I will rarely play it.

    What?  Did I miss something in the forums?  Does BoA stand for a particular mod?

    EDIT: Please email me when your team is finished with this particular mod.  I might play it.

    In case you've wondered, stathmk, Boa stands for "Blade of Agony", a wolfdoom mod under development by Daniel "Tormentor" Gimmer and his team. DoomJedi is also a part of the team.

    You can download the game actually and play the two episodes by now on. The third and last episode is under work and the whole game is scheduled to be released in fall of this year.

    The main site of "Blade of Agony" is: boa.realm667.com

    "Blade of Agony"

    We release this by Chapters, Chapter 2 (which includes reworked Chapter 1 - no need for separate download!) was released in May.
    We're working hard on Chapter 3 (will include as always all previous chapters).

    I'm project's Spriter for over a year now, converted all the old enemies and Bosses to MAC-res and doing new art/enemies as well.



    Has some high comp demands because of how unoptimized GZdoom engine is.

    Thank you for your reply.
    We're indeed looking for some more experienced mapper.

    Thank you for the Blade of Agony responses.  I had forgotten about it.

    I LOVE BoA! It already has a Cacoaward just for chapter 1. I expect it to get it 3 more times; one for each remaining chapter and then one for it as a whole.

    Very advanced for a Doom mod. Very nice blend of Wolfenstein, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, and even a bit of Serious Sam wrapped into a nice package under the Doom engine.

    LOVE the enemy and allied sprites.

    Thank you so much, that was my biggest art effort ever probably.
    Yep, Cacoaward was great, John Romero's support was even cooler, what more can an ID games modder dream of?

    I'm proud of this mod and the team. Not a perfect mod though, and we do know all the "need to improve" feedback, including low framerate at times, occasional nasty backtracking, some gameplay issues and bugs. Not all guys loved stealth parts or platforming. Some claim maps are too big.
    Still, overall it's impressive IMHO. So many hours of retro killnazi fun.

    I also donated and improved to MAC-res (basically redrawn) quite some art from my famous mod - for Chapter 3.

    Enemy and Boss sprites were alot of work, didn't want to take the task at first, DoomJuan convinced me and showed it can be done. Still, when I took on the job - I didn't realize how many enemies and Bosses this mod has, wouldn't take it had I known. Team guys helped me with their support and encouraging ongoing feedback, Ringman's work game good starting base for some enemies as well. Was very frustrating for me my art wasn't included (because "all or none") in the original C1 release, but it is in C1 now along with C2 release.

    Hope you guys will find this 8dir MAC enemy (/Boss) art useful for Wolf3D modding in MACres.
    I know Ringman did classic Wolf3D enemies in 8dir MACres as well...but my enemies have 8dir shooting frames, are of more unique and realistic style (weapons?) and obviously have much more variants that can be used Wink

    Again, thank you alot for the kind feedback.
