About This File

This is in an enclosed area with dim lighting provided by the sun and lamps. Marble is the main building element, with some exceptions.

The activated (red-eyed) skull creates shortcuts while the other switch is for exiting. When I say "shortcuts", I mean four pillars lower. When I say the red-eyed switch is for exiting, I mean a silver "UAC"-marked door opens once the switch activated. You can go through it to exit or get the weapons located there.

Info about other switches:

The switches along the walls lower the weapons in each section, but there's a little trick to it. Watch the demo to get examples of how the puzzle works.

Did you find the secret door? If you did, there are three switches inside of it, along the weapons. When you first open the door, the switch facing you will lower the pillar behind you. The switches to your left and right raise the floor if someone got a rocket launcer. If the left path is lowered and you would like to get it to its original height, just operate the left switch. The right works the same way. If no one went to get a rocket launcher, you can activate a switch anyway. Watch the effect it had on the side you activated it for. (Whenever someone gets a rocket launcher under the crushers, a path is lowered if it was not already. These are the rocket launchers I am referring to.)

The switches in the teleporter room that you have to step on to the teleporters to activate can change the structure of the level. Press the switch on the right to lower pillars. They will stay lowered, meaning more moving room. If you lowered the pillars and decided you didn't like the effect it had, activate the switch on the left to raise the pillars back their original height. If the pillars are not lowered, this switch will have no effect.

If you noticed the switch on end of the dark tunnel, then you found a little secret. Activate it and it will activate the elevator behind you. Only press this switch if you are extremely patient or bored. Ride it to the top, survive the crushers, and you will get my super-hidden surprise. Now the activate the switch to lower the lift behind the item, move to the end of tunnel while avoiding being crushed (It's difficult , I know, but I managed to survive), get to lift fast enough so you don't have to acti vate the switch again, hurry off of the lift when it reaches the floor, and you get to use bonus.

**Newest switches added**

See those those brown structures with chain guns on the top? You can lower those by opening the UAC Door and going straight in the weapons storage building until you see a chaingun at your side. Get to onto platform to see get a closer look at the switches. The lion's and gargole's head will lower a brown column, according to the one you activated, on the left or right side. Columns can be lowered for an infinite amount of times.

If you want to raise the brown coluns again, use the switches that appear when the columns are lowered. Each switch will acti- vate a column on the opposite side it is on. One activation will raise a column 32. These activations can be repeated infinitely.

I hope this clears up what all of the switches do.

Oh man. This map looks okay, but talk about a TEDIOUS deathmatch arena! So cramped!

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.

      Played on UV, GLBoom+   This is a very decent map for its era, but is not without its flaws. Plenty of enemies and traps, but more than enough health, armour and ammo to deal with them. The trickiest bits are the section near the beginning, where a couple of the chaingunners appeared to be able to shoot through solid barriers, and an 'infinitely tall' imp can cause problems, and the encounter with a couple of archviles later on, which needs to be dealt with promptly and effectively.   The lyrically-related puzzles are an interesting element and work pretty well. The elevator device near the end is clumsy though - it takes an eternity to go up and down, and the situations it engenders are predictable and tame.   If you want to experience a more challenging and polished map by this author, try his later Hidden Mountain Factory wad.   Around 65/100 for this level though.

      I can't in all conscience not give Sunlust 5 stars.   This was my first run through, I'm late to the party but don't have as much time for Doom nowadays. But if something like this were released every week, I'd probably never play any other game again.   I've gotten so used to playing such great maps and megawads created by this community that I can honestly say commercial games routinely feel lacklustre in comparison. And these are free - the best things in life truly are.   Sunlust isn't perfect. I dislike the glut of killed-to-end maps in the late teens and twenties - I think once an episode is enough to rebuild from a pistol start, especially when most of the weapons are given to you anew quite quickly due to the difficulty. I do get it though - the mappers want that BFG back at times, to force you to do it the hard way. I personally don't like too many maps that prevent you backtracking for health or armor that you save for later. Some of the later maps are, in my opinion, a bit too hard, and a bit too hit-switch-for-slaughter, too soon. Some of them are only average for design and visual appeal and I dropped below 60fps in places with a relatively fast CPU.   These, though, are minor niggles in context. This is a great mapset, and in particular one of, if not the best map 30s I've ever played. Map 30s are usually so constrained by the need to have a demon spitter - it's just not a very good final boss and we've seen every variation on a demon spitter map under the sun now. Far better to do a grand set piece finale with a four figure monster count - and that's what we get here. The final arena when the lost souls spawn above the main battle is visually one of the most impressive experiences I can remember in years of playing thousands of wads. It's not just the final arena - the entire map has a deeply impressive and imposing ambience and deceptively simple yet awesome architecture. It was a fitting end to a great set.   Too many good maps to state them all. I guess a special mention to map 13 - I love the flow and feel of this one, and it has a banging track. The music is very good throughout, and feels tailored to a lot of the maps. They modified one of the PSX Doom tracks for map30 and it is just perfect.   4.9/5 then - I wish they'd do it all over again...
