Back by popular demand on the Not Doomshack Discord server at least, it's the latest in the Doomer Board project series. The theme is Christmas and the resource pack has been created using a mix of DOOM Christmas and our very own Circle of Caina SP.
1. Get your maps in earlier than later so we have time to test it! 2. The project is released when its released, even if no one makes a map for it. 3. Limit Removing format. This means regular Doom 2 in Doom format. 4. Keep your maps short. On a casual playthrough, the goal play time is somewhere around 4-12 minutes. If its much longer than that, the map might get rejected 5. The TEXTURE1 lump blacks out many of the textures. These textures are restricted. For thematic consistency, you may only use the textures provided in the resource file. Do not include your own textures or modify the resource wad. 6. Do not implement skill settings in your map before sharing it the first time. Leave it up to the testers to decide what's too easy or too hard. 7. Any submitted maps are subject to be modified for error corrections or quality control purposes. Deal with it. B-| 8. Nobody is running this project. This is a community led effort and if any maps are rejected it will be by community consensus.
This project's official release date is Monday December 24th, 2018. That means if you want to be in this, then STOP FUCKING AROUND AND OPEN UP YOUR GODDAMN MAP EDITOR. And get your final map versions in before the 23rd, nobody wants to have no Christmas wad to play on Christmas FFS!

Pick your music by making it for that slot. If more than one mapper wants the same track as another mapper, the first finalised submitted map gets it!
MUSIC and SLOT numbers:
MAP01 Last Christmas MAP02 Driving home for Christmas MAP03 Dead Christmas MAP04 War Is Over (Merry Xmas) MAP05 All I want For Christmas Is you MAP06 Fairytale In New York MAP07 Slay Bells MAP08 Feliz Navidad MAP09 Do you hear what I hear? MAP10 Rockin' around the Xmas tree MAP11 Frosty the Snowman MAP12 Santa Claus Is Coming to Town MAP13 12 Days of Christmas MAP14 Deck the halls MAP15 Rudolph the red nose reindeer MAP16 Jingle Bells (country) MAP17 We Three Kings MAP18 We Wish You A Merry Xmas MAP19 Sugar Plum Fairies
Actual map order will be decided by some poor bastard based on what's received and what we tell that poor bastard to do. Get that Christmas Spirit on! Ho Fucken Ho!

LAAASSSST CHRISTMAS I GAVE YOU MY HEART BUT THE VERY NEXT DAY YOU GAVE IT AWAAAAY, THISSS YEAAAAAAR TO SAVE ME FROM TEARS I'LL GIVE IT TO SOMEONE SPECIALLL (SPECIAAALL) Very nice MIDIs!
Finally I can make the map I was unable to due to Doom 2's vanilla textures being lame and me being too lazy to just use new ones that was imagined to be in a frosty theme! Except now I might have to change techbases to cozy Christmas homes. Get festive my dudes.
It appears Cuppy is staking his claim to Last Christmas, a fine choice indeed. I will tentatively throw my hat in the ring for Driving Home For Christmas. Of course if anyone would like to challenge for those tracks, finish your map first. Or trade. Communal rules apply, which means it’s pretty much anarchy in here. Ho ho ho.

A timely reminder that there are 34 days until Christmas Eve. What better gift than to give your fellow Doomers something to play for Xmas by making a small map for this project? That’s right, there is no better gift, so open your goddamn editor and start mapping!
Resource pack has been updated with the addition of a few green and red textures from Vicarious Reality.

Looks like I’m gonna fail you good brothers, but lucky for all is that Big Ol Bad Billy and The Mighty Scrangus have picked up the torch and may leave us something more than coal for Christmas. Scrangus even looks like finishing that scrap I started on so yay Scrangus you sangue bom you.
Awesome work mantistoboggan ! Your Map01 is great fun map, loved the Archvile that teleports around, a great touch. Thanks very much for completing my Map02 too, love what you did with it. Nice difficulty level across both maps, hope a couple more maps drop here for this project!
update: a couple more maps apparently will be incoming soon and the resources and misc stuff like TITLEPIC/CREDIT etc are getting tweaked and finalised so watch this space... still time for people to drop a quick map or two.
