    New Wolf3D Website, and Discord

    Post by Zombie_Plan on Sun Jan 20, 2019 9:50 am

    Edit: New url!

    Hey guys! It's been a long time since I was here, but I've missed the entire Wolf3D Community while I've been gone.

    I apologize if this isn't the right place to post this, if there's a better place, feel free to move the post!

    Anyway, I've been a bit disheartened since returning to Wolf3D to find most of the news websites have suspended updates, many unexpectedly. As a result, I've decided to revive an old project of mine, in a couple of ways:



    First, Discord.

    It's been great talking in Discord with other fans of Wolf3D, but I wanted to offer a server specifically dedicated to Wolfenstein and it's sister games. You can join the Discord Server using https://discord.gg/Fee7PBY

    Discord is a free and very lightweight chat program that works in browser, and has both a desktop and phone apps.

    Feel free to join, chat with others and relax!



    Second, Website.

    This is a much bigger thing, but here goes. There are a few goals with the project:


    1. Obviously, attempting to be a regularly updated aggregate of news, mod announcements, and interesting Wolfenstein related things.
    2. Provide a more easily searchable database of mods, and provide a way to discover random mods.
    3. Provide a mirror download for mods, and restore mods that only lead to dead links elsewhere.
    4. Find a way to adequately showcase video content.


    With these things in mind, I have the following so far (design/colours to be tweaked): http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/
    Currently the site is attempting to house current news, and expand it's mod list, which sits at http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/a-z/

    The idea there is to make it easier to find mods you want by being able to sort the games list, and type in search terms to find select titles or authors, as well as showcase random mods at the top.

    I'm working on the website a little bit each day, adding more mods and attempting to fill in any blanks I see. There's a roadmap in the About section on WolfSource that shows general plans and in-progress aspects of the website.



    Second, part 2

    If you've read this far, thank you so much. It's been a bit of effort getting all of this together in 40 degree heat, but I'm happy with how it's starting to shape up.

    I hope people find this project useful. I invite any suggestions or critique for it so I can build the site in the right direction. I am one man with his own ideas.

    If you have a mod or news you want to display on the website, there are submission links on the website that will send it to me.

    Cheers guys, hope everyone is well.

    The website has now transitioned to it's permanent hosting at wolf3d.morezombies.net! The domain might be simplified later on, but this link should always work.

    The move seemed smooth enough, but if you find anything broken, let me know. I'm currently working on updating the image links.

    It's nowhere near done yet, but the mod list is growing. It's now over 200 strong x_x

    In a quest to keep things organized, a new section has been added to the site: http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/additional-mod-content/

    Additional Content is a section for those mods and map packs that are actually built off of other mods; such as Klooni, Spear Resurrection, the bonus maps Team Raycast makes, etc.

    The goal: Additional Map Pack releases tend to get sidelined after initial release, as they get mixed in and drowned in the plethora of standalone content available for Wolfenstein 3D.
    By giving it a special home, I hope to highlight and bring them to more people's attention, and maybe point interested parties in the direction of making their own.

    To accomplish that last part, there's a (WIP) slider at the top of the page that cycles through standalone games that have modding tools, or have made their source/mapinfo available.

    It's got a small list of content at the moment, but as more mods are added and I identify more add-on content, it'll naturally expand.

    I hope you find this useful!

    OOF.

    Thank you. It should have been infinite. Fixing it now!

    EDIT: It just spits the same link out, which seems to work on my end. Looks like it's refreshed or something, so it should be okay!

    The website has been plodding along.

    The contest athttp://wolf3d.darkbb.com/t3608-contest-the-key-to-success has several entries which is exciting, and the majority of total conversions have been added to the mod list.

    There are resource pages up now, with music and graphics people have made for use in other people's mods (with proper credit of course).

    For people who are looking for information on editing programs, there's now a couple of pages dedicated to suites like WDC, and Map Editors.
    Thanks to Chris and Serpens, the MapEdit page is fairly comprehensive, with all but 2 known versions of the program available for download.

    Finally, there's now a page dedicated to modding with ECWolf. The page lists the editors that work with it, and a few guides and tutorials. Tutorials for ECWolf are a little rarer, and I hope to see that change as time goes on.

    As usual, I'd love to hear any opinions on the website, any area, etc.

    I hope everyone is well.
