Description : The idea behind this was to create a classic DOOM
Megawad in two weeks. You can follow the development of the project
at this thread in the doomworld.com forums
As calling the project DOOM 3 should be way too
ambitous, we droped the idea, but the mod follows
the plot right where Final DOOM lefts out. There are
multiple references and alusion to elements from other
chapters in the DOOM series, I'll send a special prize
to the first who sends me a list of them all.
In case you like to add some background before playing
you can read the plot right here (I put it now so you
don't get tired before reading it).
But before that I want to advise you that jumping is
-------------------The Story so far-----------------------------------------
The invasion to the lunar bases of Mars, and to Earth itself divided the UAC
in two, the ones who wanted to cancel the teleportation experiments, and
these, who because of their giant potential thought that the tests were
needed to be hold, yet with extreme caution. After debates, the second
position emerged victorious. The UAC installed its labs, this time in Jupiter,
one of the farthest bases from Earth, under a high military vigilance.
The massacre caused by the attack of the gigantic biomecanomagical ship
showcased that the project had to be cancelled definitely. Almost in an
unanimity way, the decision to start the programmed Plutonia Experiment was
With the quantum accelerator the different gates to hell were detected and
sealed. The almost catastrophic incident on Congo was kept as a secret.
When you killed the Gate Keeper in the devil hive, the last gateway of hell
was closed. After endless nightmares you finally could rest. But that peace
didn’t last long.
You were assigned as security chief in the Teitenga Complex located at the
Moon. A few hours ago a magnetic signal was detected in the radar; the
source was identified inside a crater close to the installations. The
explorer team was send, guarded by a squad of marines you selected. After the
initial tests, they found a "hidden-doorway", with inscriptions of an ancient
civilization. You ordered extreme caution, but once the explorers started to
open it, all communications collapse including the communications with Earth.
The gate has been open revealing hell in it's most crude form. A wave of fire
burned all the men there, and demons start spawning all over the complex
butchering everyone in the base. You get to the hangar and deactivate the
landing pads. At the other side of the corner you hear demon growls, gun
fires, and the dying scream of the two marines that scouted you.
Now there's only one thing to do.

at the end of the mod, Sarge Baldy for the texture

Jasc Software for Paint shop Pro. Midway for two sounds
we used with one of the bosses.
Special thanks to : Everyone who followed the thread, and specialy to
all these who tried to build a map but couldn't finish
on time. All who try this out, and still play DOOM.
I really hope you enjoy this.
Gameplay notes : The mod is designed for classic DOOM gameplay
so while it requires the latest version of Zdoom or
GZdoom (because of the codes), jumping is not
allowed. I recomend to disable the the free look
too, and not to strech the skies.
The first maps were designed by me (Vegeta), with
the exception of map07. I positioned them there
because they're short and easy, and have the same
style of design.
Some may find them a bit bland or underdetailed,
I hope not, but if so, I want to note that advanced
maps have higher detail. Still please give a try
to play the megawad from scratch, it wont take too
much time to beat the first maps. You may find them easy,
well I wanted to involve you and get your attention to
complete the whole megawad.
Source port notes : The maps only use classic DOOM features with the
exception of the boss arenas where pillars lower
when the bosses die.
Still some of my maps are kinda old and were
designed with Zeth, an utility that adds Zdoom's
unique stuff to the map no matter what lines or
sectors types it uses, so with the exception of
these maps (and boss arenas) all maps can be
played with any limit removing port.
