Description : This is a small deathmatch level for ZDoom,
making use of slopes and a fancy little script
for a central event in the map. This is my first
DM level as well as the first level in which I
use slopes. Well, the slopes are not a very active
part of the level, they are only decorative.
For this level, I created a set of new textures...
which took me maybe an hour. I really wanted to
build a level that used no Doom 2 textures at
all. I do use a few computers from Doom 2,
but anyway, it's mostly new.
Looking at the map, it's a fast-paced level with
few places to camp or hide. This means that you
can play it against a single opponent as well as
against 7, and get action all the time. The
plasma gun is very tricky to get... you'll find
out why. Waiting for it is not always the best
thing to do since the other players can come from
any direction =)
Additional Credits to : Tarin, who wrote the major parts of the ACS
script that handles the laser beams, and
also tested the level.
Jon Rimmer, who pointed out some texture error.
And of course, thanks to id Software for Doom,
Doomworld for hosting & eliteness, and Randy Heit
for the awesome source port ZDoom.

New level : Yes
Sounds : Yes, sound FX for laser beams
Music : Yes, by yours truly:
"Have This Frag" - Title & intermission
"Running A Tunnel" - Level
Not the most creative names, but they'll do :)
I don't expect people to play with music -
especially as it makes harder to know when the
plasma can be taken on this level. But it's there
to set the mood if you're just checking the levels.
Graphics : Yes, several all-new textures and new title pic +
Dehacked/BEX Patch : No
Demos : No
Color Palette : Yes, a modified version of Doom's color palette,
now featuring cyan and yellow->red.
