NOTE: YOU NEED BOOM TO PLAY THIS ADDON, SINCE CERTAIN AREAS IN THIS
MAP WILL CAUSE HOMs & VISPLANE OVERFLOWS WITH THE NORMAL DOOM2.EXE
ALSO, YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED BOOM BECAUSE I HAVE IMPLEMENTED A FEW
SPECIAL EFFECTS THAT ONLY BOOM HAS... (In theory, any boom-compatible
port should do, like MBF, etc. I, however, HIGHLY recommend using BOOM.)
SO DON'T COME COMPLAINING THAT IT DOESN'T WORK IF YOU PLAY IT WITH
ANYTHING ELSE BUT BOOM.
Title : Ash to Ash
Filenames : ash2ash.wad, ash2ash.txt, ash2ash.bat
Author : Virgil the Doom Poet
Description : A Final DOOM type level. Should pose a very decent
challenge on UV.
Story: : You are in an abandoned base floating somewhere in Hell's
sky. Luckily, your suit protects you from radioactive
materials so that you can wade through toxic waste without
sustaining damage. Go kill all the monsters and get the
hell outta the creepy place. Oh, and make sure to look
around at the architecture and layout in between the
slaughter fests =).
Credits to : DOOM, DOOM2, ID Software, Jason Hoffoss for DMapEdit,
makers of NWT, and Bill Neisus for dmgraph. Also, Final
DOOM for those half decent textures :).

Oh, and also a sky from doom's fourth episode

Loading Procedure : Unzip the zip file (ash2ash.zip) into a directory

Or, add the wad file on yourself when starting up
* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch

couldn't handle this one.
*comment* ==> DMapEdit is awesome

If you find any, let me know.

Authors MAY NOT use these levels as a base to build additional
levels or make profit with them. Don't even ask, either. If you want to
make a level, make it yourself, since all doomers hunger for originality
in PWADs. You can, however, use the textures, flats, and music, as long as
you don't overdo it and as long as you do not modify anything in this zip
file. Anything else you CANNOT use.
You MAY distribute this WAD (and please, PLEEZE (!) do), provided you include
these files, with no modifications. You may distribute these files in any
electronic format (BBS, Diskette, CD, etc) as long as you include these
files intact without any modifications.
