Story : After cleaning the first Outpost, you used the
teleport you found, hoping to arrive to your
home. But you find yourself again in another
Outpost of Hell, that looks like a fortress.
So you prepare your pistol to clear also this
Outpost. Are you ready?!
Description : This level is set in a fortress, composed by two
parts: the first is its newest building, with
offices, a little hospital, a cemetery; the
second part is the real fortress, with a huge
courtyard, battlements, towers, a big library,
a first aid, some warehouses, a dormitory, a
refectory, a "church" and a "technology base"
or "teleport base".
I tried to make a multi-theme level, with a main
texture (GSTONE1) and other various textures (such
as wood, metal, tech textures, etc.). I used again
the SP_HOT texture in the crypts, in order to make
a sort of link with the first episode of this
series. Someone couldn't like it, but I think it
is a characterizing texture!
Note my improvements compared with my first level
of "Outpost of Hell" series: it is more detailed,
more good looking and architecturely very fine.
This .WAD was designed as a single map, but I had
to divide the level into two different maps,
because of WadAuthor limitations and errors.
It will take you more than one hour to play it to
You need ZDoom to play this level correctly!
