About This File

Basic Doom Scenario. I experimented with things to try to make a Star Wars level. Send me e-mail and tell me what you think of the bar.

This is a very basic wad. I can tell you are new at creating wads, and it's not terrible; however, it feels way too rushed. Besides that, it's very boring. Long rooms, a few monsters, and oh, "secrets" that aren't very secret. As for the Star Wars theme... yeah... not seeing it. 3/5

Hey I just played your map, got to get you on a doom builder makes it so much easer to align texture. I liked the layout and gameplay a lot, visually it was a little lacking but overall it was interesting. I really liked the big open area with the lava bottom and all the cacodeamons. Gave it a 3/5 By the way I'm assuming from you email you go to michigan tech, if thats true hit me up my email is sdwhitta@mtu.edu Stephen Whittaker.

This is a large but bare STARTAN reactor techbase from May 1994. It was recently remade as id=15514, which is far far better. The level starts off almost totally undetailed, but gets slicker as it goes on; the author was obviously learning on the job. By the last quarter it reaches a level of below-averageness, although the final battle comes out of nowhere and is rubbish. Overall I have played much worse, but without the remake I would have ignored this.

While playing this catalogue of errors, I wondered if this was actually a 1994 map, or just an idiot builder. I was right, it's 1994 typical crap. 2/5

^ I agree whole-heartedly; raced through this after playing NJ's remake(id=15514).

      I have a real blast while playing this megawad. Think that Quake is not brown enough? You will get the ultimate browness here. I think that, beside the simplistic ugliness of it, it gives a good cohesive look to all the maps. And this one are really big and fun to explore. The ideas of cities, fortresses, islands, canyons and caves, and finaly tech base on moon, are really neat and some looks really good. The story of the wad is pretty good, too. I love the liberties that the author takes while doing this mapset. As i played a lot and i found this kind of ideas in a few wads along the way.
      What i didn't like it much, is that there wasn't other skies than the episode one sky from Doom 2. Again, i think it is that way for a cohesive storytelling, but anyway, it would be cool to feel the sense of time in the maps with different skies and shadows deploying in differents ways along the maps.

      This could be the Eternal Doom of doom stock textures, but the linearity of the maps, aside from the somewhat empty but interesting areas to explore, departs slighty from the formula, and there are not soo much details as one might expect from a mapset like this. Don't get fooled by that, even with the somewhat Heretic-like linearity, the maps are fun, gorgeous in its brownway and pretty challenging.
        I recommend this megawad to anyone that likes to explore and have a challenge in the vein of the best of team TNT mapsets.

      I liked it better than Claptrapino. Maybe because I'm a novice level maker too. Obviously it's the work of a newbie, but I absolutely understand how it might have taken 10+ hours. I think I've spent at least that long and haven't even completed any levels yet.   I actually thought it was an interesting basic concept to start in the middle of a maze, with areas you've previously cleared not guaranteed to be safe anymore with the portals and spawns. I died twice in my attempts and finished the third time. When I realized that staying in place, conserving resources and clearing wasn't working I took the invulnerability and just ran through the halls spraying high damage weapons.   The level did seem unfinished though. What are the keys for? Are there secrets in the level that contain locked doors?

      Yes, this is a legendary megawad. Yes, there is a lot of positives to say about it.
      But I can't ignore the button madness present in many levels. In the second half of the games this gets utterly insane - you WILL spend most of the time bashing and shooting every inch of every wall to find yet another hidden switch to be able to progress. Many switches open hidden doors in an unrelated location on the other side of the level without even telling you. Some levels have switches completely invisible and one of them even hides switches in random decoration sprites like trees. I'm sorry but this was no fun and in the end it ruined the entire megawad for me.

      Now this wad is sorta conflicting, for one if you suffer from any of the following problems: lack of ammo,regenerating health,the maps,multiple deaths. You can't play doom for shit but the i also have issues with this wad.   1. The doom 3 type design disgusts me, mainly because i don't like doom 3 that much   2. I hate the painkiller esque moments   3. It's unfinished and dead   That's all.   RATING:3/10

      Pretty awful: uninspired, square layouts; boring, repetitive hordes; bad map design which leads to accidental telefragging by monsters; questionable sound design. Half of the time in a map is spent trying to figure out where to go in the map because the automap does not work and there is little sensible layout of the maps (plus some access points are hidden and difficult to discern). Earns 1 star just because of decent graphics, but that's about all that's decent in this wad.
