Description: See story below.

I needed to test out the new texture modification tools in DeeP97, so I started with making some new texture names. Then I got carried away having too much fun and ended up with this level.

This is a = BOOM = only release with elevators, conveyer belts, scrolling floors, underwater fun new sprites, new enemies, new weapons and other challenges. More textures added and some elements put back in that were not possible with standard DOOM because of visplane overflow limits (now gone with BOOM).

This release fixes some underwater elevator hom problems that occurred with the final release of BOOM. The elevator switches are now stationary, not a perfect fix. Will wait and see if this type of design will be supported better in later versions of BOOM.

KABOOM demonstrates complex and unique construction techniques with a high degree of detail (a DX4 and above is suggested). Set the Overlap Tolerance=0 in DeeP97 (F5 map options) to prevent vertex merging when modifying this level.

Besides the BOOM tricks, there are 2 different textures on a -normal- wall, double lifts (you need to go down and then down AGAIN to get the weapon: room to left at start with door, go down 2x in pedestal), lot's of other visuals and a hell of a lot of fun.

Go save the world....

Base: New level from scratch
Build time:
Editor(s) used: DeeP97, RMB (reject), Endoomer (ending text), PSP (sky), MID2MUS (convert MID to MUS format) ALL other sound, patches, sprite and ALL lump import, Texture, Sprite and Flat modifications were done by DeeP97!
Bugs: None known (might be a few texture aligns left?) Some "errors" are deliberate so don't fix them (missing textures). Also, some "errors" are caused by ultra close (1 unit) spacing (floating to integer conversions give false sector not closed errors).

a heap of shit. 0/5-- Moti-Boyx
Cramped, full of frictionless sectors for no reason, full of HOM and other errors. In short, this is crap. * -sargebaldyx
A very good map. Maybe you're playing it with the wrong exe or something.x
This is dated May 1998. It's an early source port level, a kind of fussy overdetailed techbase that's not much fun to play. Some of the design elements are interesting - there's a go at making circular passageways - but it feels buggy. Perhaps because of the passage of time the underwater section doesn't work, and I eventually got confused out of my tiny mind and gave up.x
