Description : REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT NOTES YOU NEED TO READ!!!
- You need GOTHICTX.WAD to run this map! Links to
download it are at the end of the text file.
- This map is ENORMOUS. If you have anything less
than a 1Ghz processor, don't even bother.
- This is probably the hardest map ever made that
isn't nuts.wad, with well over 3000 monsters on UV.
That being said, I would highly recommend HMP
difficulty for most players, as that is more
equal to normal UV difficulties.
Since the original "The Spire" did not, oddly
enough, feature spires of any sort, Celestial
takes place in and outside of an enormous tower.
The map is quite non-linear, check your automap
if you get lost. Also keep in mind: ALL KEYS ARE
DIFFERENT! That means blue keycard is NOT the same
as blue skullkey, etc.
Feedback is appreciated!
Additional Credits to : Matt Dixon and the Gothic99 crew, as large sections
of this map were heavily inspired by the first two
Huy Pham for Deus Vult, another large source of
Adelusion, Nick, Ola and co. for the GothicDM textures.
Mark Klem for the music.
The old #doomroom crew, whaddup guys
