About This File

This picture was created using 3d Studio V3. It used 27 procedural textures and took 28 weeks to render on a Pentium 100 PC with 640k. It has over 200000000 faces and 30000000000000 vertices. It was scaled down from 100000 by 2000000 pixels to 50 by 40 in 45 days by Paint Shop Pro V2 ....... Ooops sorry wrong file .... got a little bit carried away there. Anyway back to the right file ....

Dear Mrs Smith, The estimate for the work carried out on the downstairs bathroom is 24 million pounds and 2p + VAT and p&p. Sorry we couldn't do it cheaper but second hand solid gold baths from the Cleopatra era are hard to find.

Ooops - sorry again (gettin to be a bit of a habit this!?)

Where was I, oh yes. This Doom wad was created by me, only me and me alone and no one else (not even my dog Sparky helped).

By the way me is Andrew Harbour (not that I am a harbour thats my surname - talk about unfortunate named after a place with lots of big boats.)

The level itself is pretty large, to be quite honest I think it's huge! There's absolutely loads of monsters, if you like killing lots and also enjoy a bit of a puzzle element to levels then you should love this level.

Multi Player (coperative) playing is supported on this level but due to the large size it was decided deathmatch would be exceptionally boring and is therefore not implemented.

Knowing to look for the initial secret improves the map somewhat, though it's still some way from the best. At worst this map has ugly corridors with confusing progression and required secrets, yet it has germs of something better. The larger areas in general are much more interesting, with traps, lowering platforms and such. There are odd crossfire situations with minor enemies. Your mileage will depend heavily on how you find the progression (hint the red key is in the large blood & pipes pit)

Not 'very good' by a long shot. Whilst the author definitely has made a good effort, and the map is challenging and enjoyable in part, forcing the player to find 'secrets' to complete the map has always been lame. Let alone you'll have no where near enough ammo if you miss the 'secret' at the start. Add to this it looks like a typical '94 map (shit), and a confusing layout that needs more attention, I'd say this gets a generous 2/5

The biggest problem is unmarked doors and secrets required to progress further. The red key is one such example. It is possible to get by without the secret at the start, it's just tedious. Overall crude but playable. 2/5 - N_A

You can actually get through it if you miss the secret at the start - in fact it's more exciting that way. :p

This is dated June 1994. It's E3M1. It has an unusually large number of monsters for the period - 358 - and it's awful, just a lot of winding passages and angular rooms with clumps of imps, demons etc. It has the rudiments of gameplay, with some traps, working switches, stairs etc, but you have to keep stopping to shoot the aforementioned clumps of imps etc. It's boring rather than exciting. The ending is just another switch.

A very good map, with rather a challenging start and action throughout. Maybe a bit too large and a little confusing, but certainly well worth playing.

      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.
