About This File

Well, remember dark caliber project that was hyped by Ellmo (Hello there leader faggot), you know, we worked on this decently and there was map02 done by ellmo, BUT NO, he said he will start programming and that i should remove his map under request, why!? so yeah, project was pretty much crumbled. I decided to tune up and finish all of the maps i created for this wad, about 3 maps which differ in difficulty (Map01 - easy, Map02 - Normal, Map03 - Hard). I'm sure you will enjoy it but be aware that playing map03 on UV may piss you off and cause a trauma or depression, play at your own risk on UV ;) happy holidays doom masters

too cramped. yes, it is. Try to make maps with more varied space. 3/5

Well, that's certainly an interesting description about the backstory behind the design of this wad. More interesting, in fact, than the wad itself. Blech.

Ignoring the drama in the text file, this project is at best alright. 1st map is a nice small map, which plays well but has too many arrows and suffers from a minor fault or two. 2nd map is a mid/large map which is alright until the mass monster bit at the end, which has too little health and too much ammo. 3rd map is crap. A hitscan slaughter, with no health, cyberdemons in tight places and a very boring look, plus texture errors everywhere. So 3* for 1 good map, 1 alright map and shitheap. -Phobus

I was very impressed by these maps, but some of the mass monster areas were tedious. I died in the last map when there were 13 monsters left :P Happy New Year!

Hell yes, author has a big potential to become a quality mapper like Tormentor, Mechadon or Vader with one exception, he would be specialized in gameplay unlike all those fools i mentioned! this wad kicks ass, i enjoyed it playing through, even the shitfest map03 on UV, that wad is F` A. Alter, you are the FUTURE of mappers, not like those zdoom feature abusing newb screwbags like Moti and others. Good luck man, you deserve it! 5/5 - Good old pal from DRDteam forums and our first megawad, jflkbob

Three maps dated yesterday. Map01 is an intricate, compact dungeon level, a fun introduction (though I'm not sure about all the arrows; there must have been a better way). Map02 is bigger, just as intricate, with an interesting look, but dull and switch-hunty. It must have taken forever to put in all those armour and health bonuses. Map03 is a large city-style map, one of those thousand-monster opuses where you feel numb and a bit sick at the end.

These maps are fine, I think they are nicely detailed and have a good gameplay. This wad is good for single player or 2 players maximum, but playing it with more then 2 people is like impossible :p. But still I give it 4/5 - nice one. Xaver

Despite the dicksucking done by whoever on DRDFroums this set is pretty average, cramped, ok looking I suppose, but tedious in a lot of places. Also, Ellmo may have pissed you off but discrediting him in your txt file makes you look petty and immature...oh right, a teenager, so petty and immature are the order of the day. 3 stars.

Not perfect, and being rather switch-hunty it might annoy some, but I enjoyed this. Good difficulty first 2 maps (though end of Map02 is a bit ridiculous), then Map03 is slaughter-based and has even more ammo than necessary, though health isn't ridiculously plentiful. So overall the author's attitude obviously sucks, but these are decent maps. I'd probably give it a 4, but I'll give 5 to move the average closer.

The last map is actually pretty easy if you know what you are doing... and use the plasma rifle. 5/5

The wad is detailed, and the gameplay is alright, but it is way cramped. The author's attitude however, is what makes the cake for this wad. If your partner had other things he wanted to do, and respectfully asked you to withdraw your map, don't throw a hissy fit about it. Seriously, grow the fuck up kid. Just for that, you lost the 4 stars the map could have earned. 0/5

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
