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:
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!
This is a much bigger thing, but here goes. There are a few goals with the project:
- Obviously, attempting to be a regularly updated aggregate of news, mod announcements, and interesting Wolfenstein related things.
- Provide a more easily searchable database of mods, and provide a way to discover random mods.
- Provide a mirror download for mods, and restore mods that only lead to dead links elsewhere.
- 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.net/
Currently the site is attempting to house current news, and expand it's mod list, which sits at http://wolf3d.net/wolf3dmods/
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.
