It is curious why Scientist 2 wad (http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=13842) is almost forgotten by speedrunners? This wad has its unique style, new monsters and weapons. The pictures (e.g., map07) and statues (e.g., map02) are very good. Try to find all secrets of map03 without hints! The only problem is the BFG replacement --- it is buggy. :-( However the flamegrenades are only used with 3-4 maps (map12 is the first). I've made dozen speedruns (UV-Max, UV-speed). They are not very fast but may stay as the fastest forever. :-)

I tried this wad out about 2 years ago but the primitive level design left me unsatisfied. The author is a very nice graphic artist but I don't find his maps fun to play... I still made uv-max for map01 just because I liked its music a lot. :)

IMHO It is better to call the levels design as with not plain logic. This design differs this wad from many others. It gives new sensations. :-) I can suspect that levels like map02 has no too fast route for UV-Max... ;-) I can even suspect that it is impossible for the less than 10 minutes.
BTW I have one unanswered question --- is it possible to destroy the scientist at the final level by weapon?

Just screw secrets like that one with RL on map02. Also, map02 can be done in <10 minutes, here's a demo.

Wow! :-) Map02 was my first speedrun. It was recorded without usage of any enhancement like HUD. Map08 is made much faster but I am not so sure now that less 10 minutes UV-Max route is impossible.

with RL

What is RL? I couldn't make all secrets of map09. :-(
