Vrack 2

About This File

This is a re-release of Vrack 2. This version contains the following fixes:

* People complained that I hadn't built a REJECT table, so their computers went slow with the level. Here you go, a brand spanking REJECT table. Built with Zennode, as RMB crashed with a runtime error after 0.2 seconds.
* Skies fixed. They are all truly double and authentic now. There are Vrack(1)-style streaks visible if you look close, but you don't see them unless you really look for them. I might add that these streaks will NOT be present in Vrack 3, I was just too lazy to remove them for a crappy re-release like this.
* Added deathmatch starts. Dunno why, I think it could be fun somehow. I might try myself some day.
* Updated this text file with appropriate fixes (new file, site, e-mail addresses, changes, etc.

Otherwise, this is the same map as vrack2.wad.

I did NOT modify gameplay anything. You people who complained about this map being too hard: Don't play it on UV unless you ARE a mad maniac. It's enjoyable on skill levels 1-3.

Very fun map with excellent visuals. The difficulty feels a tad unbalanced, with a lot of rather easy fights interspersed with one or two very tough "boss" encounters.

I give it 4.5, so I'll give it 5 and say more here. The overall design, gameplay, and especially the logical structural detail is amazing. You have maybe, too many ammo and supply drops, but it makes the game enjoyable because it's something less to worry about. I did get a little bored after the 2nd hour of playing on UV. I died many times but couldn't stop playing because I wanted to see more of the map. Definitely put it on the to do list!

This is a slightly updated version of vrack2.zip. Gameplay has not changed, so still not legendary (more monsters does not per definition mean more fun), but solid, and worth a try. BTW UV looks overwhelmingly, but is overall not difficult at all - if you take your time and plan your moves.

This is a very big map with tons of monsters and nicely detailed tech-ambience. Though the battles are rough in places, it's never too hard, because you're provided with a lot of health and ammo. If you want to spend a whole evening or night in hell, you should try this map. 4/5 -Milian

One of the best and most classic space levels ever. You haven't had the truest Doom experience without this!

Best wad I've ever seen. I've beaten it on UV, and I still enjoy playing it.

Large and in charge. Large detailed map with plenty of opportunities for action. Very nice choice of textures, and good use of ZDooM effects.

Pretty much the most fun I've had playing a wad in a while. Constant action even on HMP, and when the action would drag (pretty much never), I could stop to admire the insane details. Awesome, awesome stuff.

Oh yes. Huge and compelling, with some surreal details towards the end. Marred slightly by a frustrating final fight with some spiders; it's a matter of luck as to whether you can hide properly behind a column or not. There's a plethora of cacodemons at one point, and I killed them all. Attractive hangar, which really is reminiscent of 'Dark Forces'. Doesn't seem to work with Jdoom, in that the very first door does not open. Five stars.

I respectfully disagree with the gent who says that winning the final spider fight is luck. You just have to save the inviso for that last firefight. Otherwise I concur that this wad is great. Lovely space station design, lots of weapons and clever tricks and traps, and over 700 monsters. Lock and load, baby.

Whoever rated so low sucks. Fredrik is a DOOM God and his Vrack series is just amazing. -Dron_

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.
