Has there been any quality releases this year? I have the Apocolypse part 2 map still on my agenda to play when I find some free time, but im looking for other quality maps made at least this year.

Yea, it has been a slow start to the year for releases. The only map from 2018 that I've added was Demolition Duke http://www.dukemaps.net/?p=9758

I've also been really busy lately along with probably everyone else so I haven't had any time to go digging around. Our 1 month old baby is keeping us pretty busy.

Just noticed this map: https://forums.duke4...ease-dark-seed/ looks like a gooder! I've been kind of absent on these forums lately so my apologies.

Congrats on being a father Paul! I know it's a lot of work, I had twins on the most important moment of Ion Maiden development, go figure :blink:


Wish I had time to play more user maps for Duke. I'd be able to contribute a few names. Did you try the Shaky grounds series? Great maps!

I think people stopped making usermaps and focus more on projects. Ion Maiden while a standalone game, can be considered a new massive Duke TC. And we shouldn't forget that Gambini and Mikko will return this year with an even better and more badass version of DNF2013 TC. With these two shaping up - adding the release of the PC version of Total Meltdown - we can safely say this was a more than just successful year for all Duke fans.

The most preeminent Duke mappers sold themselves for Ion Maiden.

And there is a fat chance many of the community mappers will jump on this bandwagon after the full release.

For the immediate period following the release, probably. After that I don't see any reason why they wouldn't return to Duke mapping as well as making IM maps.

Are we talking about whether the IM mappers will return to making Duke 3D maps, or are we talking about whether the other Duke 3D mappers will make maps for IM, or something else entirely?

I might have missed them but in my experience I haven't seen a lot of mappers make maps for many TCs after they are released. I don't know why. You have lots of new assets to have fun with.

Not to mention there's the AMC TC Episode 3 coming out this year, which has had 4ish veteran mappers working on and off for around 3 years.

This year has been poor on releases so far, as well as last year and people are very short on replies these days.
Also lot's of ads in this thread.
Here are my recommendations for recent maps.
There was a Plug'n'Pray remake for EDuke, Duketroid is a pretty good map done in Metroidvania style, Mr. The Killer is a funny mod based on an indie game I never played, ToiletDuck releases a lot of doom-like maps, which are severely underrated on this site, Devil's Gate never even got released on this forums, but it's an alright map, maybe you missed Spacetronic and also check Sanek's small story driven map Dark Seed.

Since everybody else is doing it, get ready for some of the lowest form of self-advertising: check my maps Naked Dash (a puzzle heavy surreal Portal-like map) and HEALTH (ultrahard doom-like survival excercise).

The OP is essentially asking for ads, so what do you expect?

Well this map has lots of comments, so it must be the better one released this year.

I myself will admit that even for me it has been a slow year in mapping, specially for Duke3D i've been too busy with other projects and life, fortunately i got some time free for a little bit and i'm currently working again on Detain and hopefully can finish it this year.

Yes, very few new maps in 2017 and 2018 and even fewer the ones which support COOP.

Do you know any new good maps which support COOP except Devils Gate I tried recently and it was amazing?

Also do we have any information approximately when the apocollapse part3 will be released??? The first two maps were masterpieces!

There may be more. Not all released maps are announced on Duke4.net. ;)

Also, Magdalene is a very cool and recent map.

As a hardcore Duker <_< , I have checked also scent88 Arrovf Nukem and all the other websites. Nothing more. On the other hand, the good news is that many projects and mods are under development, which look promising.

Thank you for your suggestion. I have asked the author if is possible to add COOP to this map. Magdalene is a top quality map, but only SP at the momenth.

Mikko keeps a pretty good tally on what's been released.
http://msdn.duke4.net/index.php

About 10 articles down are his numbers. They'll be slightly lower than the actual releases as he only counts 'good quality' single player maps and TCs.

As the author of the first 2 maps, I can say that part3 has been postoned but will eventually be done. That's all the info I have right now.

The reason for this isn't a bad one though: I'm currently mapping for the upcoming Alien Armageddon mod.
So there will be new content from me and the rest of the DNAA team soon. :)


Thanks for the kind words btw!
