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!

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'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.
