My beta guys: Kirk (Ruasikko) Hagberg,
Glenn (dog boy) Sibley, and Dave Seper.
Description : A huge, fairly straight foreward level that is
shaped like the top portion of a skull. It's not
all that difficult to complete, but nearly
impossible to find all the secrets. I have
installed more teleporters than nescessary in order
to allow quick access to various parts in
deathmatches. There are several areas that
"respawn", not in the sense of NIGHTMARE,
but some places you could kill everything, then
come back later and find some new nasties.
This runs fine full or almost full screen on
the 486-33s I've tried it on. I have no creative
or witty story behind this, except that I learned
that I spent way too much time on this stage.
95% of the textures are aligned the way I want them
(most done before DEU 5.2), so don't yell about the
few bad ones. I have a bunch of new ideas for new
levels, so this should not be my last stage. Also
look for my ray-traced robotic sentries (sentry.zip)
they replace the cacodemons.
