MOONBAS2.WAD - Moon Base (version 2)
- a single-player level for Doom or Ultimate Doom (replaces E1M1).
Original author: Orin Flaharty email@example.com
Version 2 Update: Sparky of KISS Software firstname.lastname@example.org
Mods made by Sparky of KISS Software:
- the original version contained a self-extracting .exe archive
within another self-extracting .exe archive (moonbase.exe)!!!
This version is in standard wad format - just copy the wad to
your Doom directory and run it with: doom -file moonbas2.wad
- combined the four wads (level, music, sky texture, and step texture)
into a single wad file - moonbas2.wad
- moved the map and music to E1M1 (the original version was E2M1).
This meant that I could also delete the sky texture (sky2), because
it was just the original episode 1 sky anyway.
- cleaned the wad of any wasted space.
- the original version was 100KB (.exe archive), and this version is
only 58KB (regular .zip archive).
- appended the story (moonbase.sty) to the end of this document;
so this version contains only 2 files - moonbas2.wad and moonbas2.txt

I would prefer that you didn't use this wad to make new levels,
but if you decide to, give me some credit, eh.
You MAY distribute this WAD, provided you include this file, with
no modifications. You may distribute this file in any electronic
format (BBS, Diskette, CD, etc) as long as you include this file
* Where to get this WAD *
I had to split up the wads because when I grouped them together, it created
lots of glitches, so I wrote a batch file to make loading it easier.

Due to current conflict on Earth, the military can only spare a small
squad of soldiers. Due the Construction design of the base, the military also
feels that a small group will be more effective.
STEP 1: Secure Perimeter
STEP 2: Evaluate Enemy Resistance
STEP 3: Destroy Enemy Resistance if posible. If not, send for
Just one problem, Your drop-ship is attacked by the planets ODP
(Outer Defence Perimeter) on the way in. Four of you manage to parachute
out before the ship is destroyed. Unfortunatly it may have been easier
to stay on the ship and die painlessly. All you have is a semi-automatic
pistol and no way off the planet. The best you can hope for is to find the
rest of the survivors and contact Earth.
(Note: This is only the first in a series of wads I am working on. Look for
Moonbas2.wad sometime around April.)
