About This File

You either loved it or hated it's TF and TFC versions. Now the joys of Civsaw come to Doom! I decided to port my popular Quake map over, and it has mixed results. I've changed a few things in this one, not only because of engine differences but also to accomodate as many source ports as possible.

The goal in the original Civilian Sawmill was simple but demented. One team composed of nothing but Civilians.. 50% health, no armor, weaponless players, had to face off against the other team of two Heavy Weapons Guys, who ARE armed with chainguns and grenades. It's not meant to be serious; in fact I made the map crazy on purpose, as a nice diversion from ordinary TF. The things I come up with in IRC..

What's changed? Well, since there aren't any classes in Doom like in TF, but I wanted to keep the Heavy Weapons Guys, you will randomly spawn in a small room outside the main map, with a chainsaw, chaingun and rocket launcher, as well as a megasphere and a blue armor. This beefs you up to HWGuy level, although of course you've still got the Doomguy speed. :)

Civilians start with a single bullet for their pistols. I wanted to make them start with just their fists, but a flaw in DOSDoom's DEHACKED implementation, as well as problems with the ZDoom bots, caused me to settle for that. Also, because I have no way to award a Quad damage without ACS, I put a single beserk pack in the exit room. The exit room is new too.

Please see the section on source ports to see how to play this map. I designed it in such a way that it'd work with as many as possible.

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
