About This File

I'm gonna keep this brief. This is my first map. I went for a wooden theme to it, until it gets to the hellish area. I also went for a modern approach, like if this happened today. So, you will not find any rocket launchers (never seen a rocket launcher that looked like a tube or barrel), plasma rifles, of BFG9000s. You will find everything else in terms of weapons. However, there is no berserker packs, radiation suits, Computer Area Maps, or armor. You will also not find any monsters with cyber attachments, so you can rest well this is 100% cyberdemon or spiderdemon free. There is also no keys, so it should be pretty straight forward. It is also very linear, but it is also very big. I made it with Singleplayer in mind, but Multiplayer has deathmatch spawn points and Co-op start points. I made it mostly in doom builder 2, but I started in doom builder 1. I'd like to thank chubzdoomer on youtube for his tutorials, without them this wad would not exist. Included is a .pk3 for jdoom, which I sort of made this for. I recommend downloading this version of jdoom for minimum bugs: http://rapidshare.com/files/18887528...sday_1.8.6.exe Once downloading, I reccommend you go to Doomsday/Data/jdoom and find some user interface pack thingy. Delete it. Then go to Doomsday/Defs/jdoom/auto (or maybe not in auto) and remove the jdui thingy there too. Then, download the ui pack from the main page. The jdtp is also reccommended. I also suggest the enviornment pack which comes with it, then, once loading, type fog off in the console. Then you get a full 3d skybox. These are all reccommendations, and are not at all required to run this wad. Also, I changed music, so don't use custom music with this.

Legendary IS the best way to describe this. Legendary for being the first ever wad that made me get barf on my screen from those pulsating textures. Good effort though. 5/5

Great map. Good gameplay. Should keep mapping and ignore the 12 year olds that complain about classic inspired 1994 maps. 4/5 from myself.

24MB??? What a waste of space. The zip contains a 127KB wad that looks and plays like a shitty 1994 map, and a pk3 with five OGG files. 0/5

      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.
