A map definition sets properties for a specific map.

Block syntax

  • adddefaultmap { properties }
  • defaultmap { properties }
Sets the default set of properties. Note that these properties are copied to future definitions, so changing the default map won't retroactively apply.
  • map "<maplump>" { properties }
  • map "<maplump>" "<mapname>" { properties }
  • map "<maplump>" lookup "<string>" { properties }
Defines a map block. It is recommended that the map be named through MAPINFO, but is not required. The lookup keyword will cause the string to be looked up in LANGUAGE.

Block properties

  • bordertexture = "<texture>"
Overrides the gameinfo border texture for this map.
  • cluster = <number>
Assigns the map to a cluster.
  • completionstring = "<string>"
Short message to display on the intermission screen instead of "Floor Completed".
  • deathcam = <bool>
Enables the death cam with A_BossDeath.
  • defaultceiling = "<texture>"
Default ceiling texture to use when a map has a blank third plane.
  • defaultfloor = "<texture>"
Default floor texture to use when a map has a blank third plane.
  • ensureinventory = "<item>", ...
Checks the players inventory and gies that item if they are lacking.
  • exitfade =
Duration in Doom tics of the exit fade.
