Edit: It looks much better by the way.

So wait a second, is the project dead or not? (Also the screenies are arranged weirdly on my screen)

Is there a reason for the sudden cancellation of all these projects, especially since they all seem to already have some amount of content in them?

Map entered it's beta status!


As for your question. It was an "Instant burnout" as I call it.

So... are all of these projects "undead" now (lol, zombie projects :P) or just some of them?

Looks good anyway, though, and it's great to know you're still working on this stuff :D

Yes I'll keep working on them. The only problem is that I started working on a lot more again :P
This one will be out in a few days guys so stay sharp!

I think the burnout comes from trying to do too much. Stick with one to completion and you may find that the end is gratifying enough to keep going; a cyclical reward of deed.

Until then, shoot high, aim low?

Staying very sharp.

I avoid burnout by either making smaller packs or single maps. There's no way I could stay motivated for a 3-5 year project. Concentrate on making a quality single map release before taking on multi-map projects.

Spot on.

@ makemeunreal
There is no way you are going to produce a "The last Fortress" or anything near that quality, and certainly not a large mappack (see how long Projecy Xenome takes as a one man job).
As implied by others : make a couple of single maps with some objectives which you haven't mastered yet and set those as goals.
You will find more gratification in succeeding single goals than in producing a map (or a pack) in which "only" 5 of your 10 objectives were attained.

Good luck (and in a down moment: play TLF on Unreal difficulty :wink: )
