the whole game is indoors!... i hope someone reads this and makes an outside map... but with buildings too. i think a skilled enough mapper can make an outdoor enviorment would be sweet! and maybe make so oxygen wont affect you..

It's not known yet how well the Doom III engine can run outdoor envrionments. It seems as if out door environments would drastically drop your frames per second. But i guess we'll find out as more maps are released.

i agree, a nice one in a ruined Mars City would be nice, with streets and shoddy bars and stuff everywhere, heh. and for those who read this and DO make one, remember to add scripted events in the final version, like a bridge collapsing or something, that'd be sweet.

Check the "unofficial doom III tutorials | reference list" thread.

It contains links with many many skys that could be used, or give you a nice idea.

And, if it turns out it doesn't work out too well on an outdoor map. Take a few hours to try and "optimize" it.. and see if you can't isolate the issue. -_- i bet if there's an issue it can be manipulated.
