  3. A techbase inspired mainly by E1M7 and Nicolas Monti's wads I guess. This is mostly me playing around with a couple of ideas I had for a while, such as using radiation suits instead of keys.

  7. This is an early style "tech base" map for DOOM 1, made in 2015. It was meticulously detailed and should be aesthetically pleasing to those who are not sick of the tech base theme. Think of it as a nostalgic ode to the early DOOM experience.

    A little history: I was 13 when I first played DOOM. The level of engagement (and fear) that I felt when I first played it on a 386 with a PC speaker is something I have not felt since those days in any modern game. I guess our imagination was more developed back then. I was absolutely blown away by the detail and realism I saw when walking through the creepy halls of the various military bases.

    When I first heard that people were creating their own maps in 1994, I was intrigued and fascinated by what I thought was an impossibly complicated process. I experimented with mapping back then using Doom Editor - The Real Thing by Geoff Allan, in Windows 3.1. It crashed all the time. I also found it difficult to convert my ideas into an actual map. I gave up after loosing my progress a few too many times.

    Fast-forward 20 years to 2013, and I stumbled across a website for Doom Builder 2. I was shocked to find out that there was a map editor for Doom, and that it was developed in the 2000s. Since I was not a gamer and rarely played video games at all (except for a short stint of obsession with GTA4), I thought Doom modding died a long time ago. I downloaded the map editor and started to experiment. I was amazed at how rock solid Doom Builder was. (To this day, it has not crashed a single time, nor have I ever noticed a single bug.)

    It was on. I started to map out a few ideas and quickly became obsessed. It was so easy to draw out exactly what I was thinking, and the 3D mode was blowing my mind. I started to work on an E1 episode like I had always wanted to since the 90s.

    This level is the 2nd map of the episode. It is also the 2nd map I make (ever). The first is complete, and the 3rd is half done. I liked how this one turned out. Halfway through the development of this map, I discovered the PWAD archive and the Doom World forum. I had NO IDEA there was still a huge community of Doom playing and modding. I started to download some maps. When I saw how far mapping has come, I was reluctant to release this. My map comes from someone who last played doom in the 90s so it really was styled to what I thought was the ultimate style. But I still really like the tech base style and figured some people might enjoy it.

    Keep in mind that this is the 2nd map I have ever made.

  8. Control Center is a map I made some weeks ago, based on the 90's mapping style. Some areas might even remind you of some places in the original Ultimate Doom episodes. The theme of the map is a base, very similar to the ones in the first episode of Ultimate Doom, Knee-Deep In The Dead.

  10. First map that I release. Short (for about 5 minutes). Vanilla compatible, for Doom 1. 2 secrets. Very easy, especially if you find both secrets. Also, notice the lack of 90 degree corners! I started this a long time ago as a speedmap, but abandoned it for some time. 2 days ago, I felt like mapping, so I finished it. I was thinking of making sequels, because this feels a lot like some first map to an episode. Maybe I'll make a sequel or two someday.

    == STORY THAT I MADE UP AFTER MAKING THE MAP ==

    You were watching the news, when they reported a weird accident in a local military base. You heard about the base in the news already - hippies were protesting against them, because they apparently were creating a lot of nuclear waste. "Huh, they deserved it." you think. Nevertheless, since you've always been appealed by such mysterious accidents, you decided to go and check stuff out...

  11. Vanilla E3 replacement for doom.wad on marble/wood/caves/hell themes. No custom textures but custom music on each map. The first half takes place underground, after that you'll finally get to see the sky. The difficulty is maybe a bit higher than in original "Inferno". The project was organised by Memfis and he asked a couple of mappers to change some stuff here and there to make the episode more consistent but he tried to not limit the creativity too much so his influence shouldn't be very noticeable.

  12. This level was designed for expert players as the puzzles are far from easy !. It will probably take you over one hour to complete first time around. All textures have been aligned and plenty of thought has gone into designing each room. It's excellent in deathmatch mode as there are plenty of hide-outs and sneaky traps to lure your opponents into. Make sure to use the "Altdeath" command line parameter for respawning when playing in deathmatch mode as it's badly needed for this level.

  14. Centred around a tiny, winding, ever- changing system of tunnels. The difficulty levels are intentionally easy; in the future this WAD will form the first level of an episode replacement for Doom I. However, there are lots of puzzles to make up for it. --- Changes in release 2: Fixed ceiling height of first teleporter. Rotated step texture in exit room. Added a Supercharge, but you have to know where to look. Texture realignments and replacements. Changed light levels in dark room to be more realistic.

  16. Your pal Satan invited you and fifteen of your closest friends over for a friendly game of chess. Not trusting him one bit, you took along quite an arsenal. As you arrive at Satan's door, you are whisked away to a huge arena. Alas, as your compadres see the terrors before them, most (or all, depending on how many players you're using) die of fear. Some even implode. Now it's up to you to checkmate Satan.

  25. This was originally made for Doom the Way id Did as E3M8. I eventually removed this big chunk of the level and kept the part with the Spiderdemon. This is made in a strict Peterson style so expect lots of texture misalignments, unusual wall-floor combos, and all that stuff.

      Interesting, but I'm not a fan of hidden buttons and convoluted gameplay.

      This is one beautifully crafted piece of well orchestrated torture.   UV-difficulty is by no means suited for players inexperienced in the slaughter genre, and even on HMP you're expected to get the very basics right.   What starts as a series of smaller, moderately difficult, albeit punishing encounters in seperate areas of this map evolves into a full blown fight for survival that takes place almost across the entire map once you unleash the final wave of enemies.   The layout of this map is nothing short of effective. By the time you got your first set of guns you will already have several revenants, a vile and more coming for you, while at the same time this map manages to deny you any sort of comfortable "cubby" that you can start working from at your leisure. Unless you really cleared out an area in this map you best keep moving, because something will shoot at you from somewhere and when you get hit hard anywhere down the line it's probably gonna hurt a lot in the long run. But don't be fooled into thinking you're simply going to carve out some space where you like and it'll just stay that way, that's not how this map is going to play.   If you plan on beating this map on UV, you're gonna have to do some very careful planning in order to not get blasted from seemingly out of nowhere at the most inopportune moments and have enough resources left to deal with the final wave of flyers in a "safe" fashion, relatively speaking. Situational awareness at all times, and a proper route is key here.   This was a tough nut to crack, but I had a good time with it. If you're anything like me, and you like to play maps you need to sink your teeth into, this little gem here is well worth downloading.

      So here goes yet another wad, still played through GZDoom's Software render like everything else.   What do I think? Well, compared to the other Doom wads I've played until now I must say that this was honestly the most fun and exciting of all of them. The levels have a great layout and good enemy placement. Although some maps, especially towards the end seem to go full b*llshit with the enemy count they were still really fun to play, quite unexpected to be honest since the difficult parts in the previous wads I played had the tendency to be really frustrating and often unfun, but for some reason that's not the case here.   Most levels don't rely on lots of textures but they're still pretty beautiful, and none of them drag on or are longer than they really should be, with easy to find secrets, some of them being out in plain sight and very easily accessible, which is a bit questionable indeed, and the most difficult levels seem to typically take place in red, hellish, cavernous areas. There aren't any maps that I dislike, probably because the gameplay is solid all the time, and they give you just enough resources, no war of attrition to be found here. My favorite level is going to be MAP11 Sneak Peak, I've seen maps and areas that make punching fun and satisfying, but so far none did it better than this one, just pure enjoyable punching to be found here, and the best part? Enough resources so the game doesn't descend into madness territory, or perhaps it does, in mad fun if you know what I mean. I must also admit, I did not expect to run into slaughter levels at all, but they were pretty nice and not insanely cruel, yet this stuff is way beyond my league. I managed to finish them after a number of failed attempts, but I'll likely not get serious about playing slaughter wads in the future, it's just neither my thing nor is it for me and my skill level. No shame in admitting this.   My only gripe would be with the last map. And I thought post-MAP24 levels in Memento Mori 2 were annoying with their enemy counts and scarce resources, but since this one is a slaughter level as well just like the few ones that came before, and unlike the typical Icon of Sin kind of final maps, it's full of waves of Revenants, Cyberdemons, Barons, and other strong enemies, a really, really difficult and tricky map which can be confusing and frustrating at times, but it doesn't mock you with giving you few power ups and ammo and let you die in agony. I'm just so damn glad to be done with it, I don't want to ever see something like this before me again, the horrors of hell will haunt my dreams forever. I also think that forced pistol starting levels wasn't a bad idea at all, but rather an interesting concept, with great balance, and definitely much better than making maps with crap encounters, tons of traps, scarce resources, and so on just to provide an artificial challenge to the player. They can be a bit difficult, but you only need to be careful, and fast sometimes, they're very far from insane. The timed level Run from It was just as interesting, but I had to Google a little after I died a few times because I couldn't understand what's going on in this map and why I keep dying out of the blue.   The music is also fantastic, the songs which play on MAP19 3000 AD and MAP20 The Starport being my favorite of all. Bit of a shame that it doesn't feature a complete replacement of the vanilla Doom music though. Other than this, to sum things up, this wad should definitely be considered a classic from my point of view, it's a fine candidate to the title, damn fun and solid, I loved it.

      Only first map is good, where you must run away from cacos. but when you get ssg everything becomes bad. Visualy this wad is below average (from 1995) missaligned textures, very big square rooms. At least no maze included. Maps 01-03 have a lot of backtracking, and switch hunting, but they are easy to find. Map 04 has INSANELY high lift. One way lasts so long, that you can go make dinner, clean your room, drink some beer, and still wait for it.  Overall waste of time, but not terrible. Just below average of 95 wads.

      Pretty decent WAD by UltimateLorenzo. Overall I really dig the use of custom monsters and the addition of the Plasma Shotgun and Nailgun - they fit in quite nicely.   As for the maps themselves, I love the detailing put in each level. A lot of hard work has been put in to make these levels pop. The first five maps were excellent, the next three were tedious in that you pretty much have to shotgun everything pretty much (if done on Pistol-Start), and the final five was also quiet good, taking on a more 'Quake' style in appearance.   What's the deal with MAP13 though? No weapons to take on 250+ monsters? Obviously not meant to be Pistol Started. Good if this was made into a full-fledged megawad, but this is still certainly worthy of a playthrough.
