Hello Doomworld, I've just had a day surgery today and the doctor has informed me that I will require up to 6-8 weeks to fully recover.
I was wondering if any kind folks out there would be willing to make some maps for me to play whilst I am immobilized and in recovery.
Maybe this is in poor taste but would you guys be able to make space themed maps which are fairly easy to playthough. Not really looking for overly difficult maps. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to some cool maps to kill the monotony. Thanks friends.
E1M1 & E1M2 are pretty decent despite some annoying switch hunting.
E1M3 is a mediore hallway map with unmarked doors.
E1M4 & E1M5 are boss maps that can't be exit properly due to not being in proper map slots.
I would recommend to just play the first two maps and skip the rest.
My all time favorite episode 1 replacement wad that keeps the theme & difficulty the same as the original KDITD but with a tiny dash of Episode 2(Lost Souls, Cacodemons & Barons appear in the 2nd half but are rarely used). The only thing that prevents me from giving this a full 5 stars is that E1M8 is too anticlimactic & easier than OG E1M8 but even then this mapset is still worth playing...or replaying on my end ;)
Perfect example of why I hate ports. This map could have easily been limit removing vanilla compatible, but instead throws a spanner in the works using unnecessary Boom quirks. Most of the maps are very good to superb - but many are ruined by a critical switch, door or trigger failing to work. A few maps, notably The Crusher, are simply unplayable in my Boom enabled Doomsday with not a single switch working. What could have been a superb megawad has been spoiled by crap. Still give it a 4 for the maps that worked.
