The ZDoom Community Map Project "Take 1"
|The ZDoom Community Map Project "Take 1"|
|This mod received one of the 2004 Cacowards on Doomworld!|
The ZDoom Community Map Project, or ZDCMP, is a very large map made collaboratively by many ZDoom community members, each contributor adding a new section to the map or improving on previous work. The project sought to highlight ZDoom's capabilities by going well beyond the usual limits of Doom maps and using several then-new features such as custom monsters, swimming in deep water, scripted puzzles, and so on. It was well-received, earning one of the 2004 Cacowards, and spawned two separate attempts at a sequel, the second of which was successfully completed and also received a Cacoward.

Inspiration and development
The room under construction (secret #2) is based on the Town's Interrogation Area where Strife begins, including its texturing. When you enter it, a message appears reading "Err... still not finished? .64 will obviously take forever!" At the time this part of the WAD was built, Marisa Heit (Randi) was working on implementing Strife support in ZDoom. It was slated for version 2.0.64 (released June 8, 2004), but ultimately implemented in version 2.0.90 (released October 10, 2004).
