Beautiful Strange Doom Sky Pack

About This File

A set of ten new skies for Doom. All of them 1024 pixels wide, divided in four pieces.

The WAD archive contains a small demo map (re- peated ten times, each one with a different sky), so you can view how the skies can be applied in the game.

There are also three folders. The named "truecolor" includes the original renders (256x192, 24 bpp). In "8bits-doom" you'll find the same graphics converted to Doom palette. And "8bits-128px-doom" contains the 128 pixel tall skies that I used in the demo WAD.

I tried to create certain variety of atmospheres. So there are some earth-like skies, an "inferno" sky, a moon-space one, a Mars inspired sky..., among others.

A decent but not excellent pack. Some of the skies are very good, but others looks a bit unnatural. They're pretty low-res, which can be a good or bad thing, but the JPEG artifacts is definitely a bad thing. The paletted versions are mediocre- I wouldn't say they're horrible but the truecolor ones are definitely better. A proper ZDoom TEXTURES lump would have been nice instead of the more universal but uselessly messy TEXTUREx lump.

If you're using Terragen, couldn't you have plonked in the tops and bottoms for people who have SKYBOXes in mind?

At first it seems very disappointing, especially given the rave reviews; but you have to understand that this is for the original Doom. It's not one of those 3D Jdoom things. It all looks decent, although a bit samey. Despite using Terragen they tend to look very much like the Episode 3 sky with washier colours, but there's only so much you can do with Doom's palette.

Beautiful skies! It's a pity the doom engine trashes the original pictures, but 5/5 anyways. And HOW IN THE WORLD were these made from scratch?!

This is a very nice collection. May need some touching up here and there, but the way everything is included ready to go is just great. 4/5

these are pretty badass. I kinda wish the height was more than 200 though for ports that allow mouselook.

I kind of like the skies, although there are a few issues that bring the score down. 4/5.

This was made without doom's 256 color palette in mind. You could have used other colors that the palette wouldn't have destroyed and it would look a lot better. Instead, you chose whatever color you wanted and didn't seem to care whether it looked nice in doom or not.

      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.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
