About This File

Utilizing Jump or Crouch will break this level.

Single level for The Ultimate DOOM, E4M1. While this WAD requires ZDoom to run, all effects are created using BOOM-compatible actions.

I have included new monsters on the Ultraviolence setting. I downloaded the new monsters from realm667.com, and have tweaked most to various degrees. My thanks to their creators.

For most of this WAD I stuck to the standard textures, but for one section I decided to throw in a few new ones I created. They are all edits of existing DOOM textures.

I have quarantined off an area of the WAD for deathmatch, if you are so inclined.

Coop not implemented, due to various tricks that wouldn't work in coop.

Story

After the epic horrors of DOOM and The Beginning of the End parts I and II you are a broken man. Demons haunt your mind and plague your sleep. Unable to cope, you are sent to a UAC medical facility that also happens to double as a radioactive toxic waste treatment plant. Here, along with the few other surviving scarred space marines, you are prescribed cryno-therapy. Your body is placed in suspended animation while your mind is flushed with chemicals and stimulants in order to cleanse the horrors from your psyche.

But something is wrong. As soon as you are put into stasis, you awaken again. Things are different. The building seems deserted and in shambles. No sounds are heard. You step out of your chrinochamber to a familiar smell. The smell of rancid flesh. The smell of death. You draw your pistol, which you never let leave your side no matter what the circumstances. You wonder if this nightmare will ever be over. You get the sense the worst is only beginning.

That was really cool. I played on UV to see your custom monsters. I'll probably go back and play HMP. I thought it might just be a really nice drawing, but it's more than that. I liked the flood.

The arcitecture was pretty darn good, the begining reminded me of the "library" from halo for some reason. Odd. Well it's good. 4/5 ~Joe Anderson

Huge, nonlinear, "instant death" areas - all things that turned me off. I imagine it's a level that others might well enjoy, but I didn't at all. Sorry.

This was a fantastic level: Beautiful architecture, intense fights, and rewarding secrets. I'll play it again and again. For me, the highlight was the fights; most DOOM fights, in my experience, involve running around until you're in a covered position with all of the enemies in front, so you can see all of their attacks and dodge effectively. Due to a combination of level design and well conceived ammo/health placement, I found it impossible to do that in this level, which made it much more exciting.

Helluva good map. It's expansive, nonlinear, and not at all square. Hell, the shape is one that almost no mappers today will ever try and tackle, yet it still looks just right. Brilliant fights, as well. Be damn sure and give this one a play, or else I'll have to come over there and kill your trains. -Xaser

I loved this...even if I can understand that gameplay is not for everyone. I'm dissapointed it got no Cacowards mention.

I loved this level, but to be honest it's a love it or hate it thing. The style will really excite some and won't appeal at all to others - same with gameplay, since that's pretty much connected with style anyways. But a non-objective five from me. I played HMP.

I loved this level, it was quite huge and the "free order of doing things" progression that covers most of the map was a nice change. Even the metallica music didn't bother me much, I actually thought it fit the map. 5 stars.

This is about as Doom as Doom can be - you get an overwhelming sense of loneliness in a giant, pentagram shaped techbase, with a Metallica midi going in the background, against 666 monsters (UV) and when the action picks up the odds seem insurmountable. Ammo felt very tight at points, but that added to the experience I felt. 5* -Phobus

So. Fucking. Amazing. Thank you for reviving my faith in DOOM's stock textures. And, of course, for the awesome level. - Viewtiful-Chris 5/5

"Awakening" is a large map that you can miss for its impressive graphics and interesting gameplay; difficulty is extremely challenging and may be very hard for the average Doomer!

Kick ass...the battles are well designed, the level looks awesome, the only annoying thing is finding out where you're supposed to go sometimes, make sure you pick up the full map and check it regularly. Only boring if you have no attention span, 80% intense action, 15% paranoia, 5% aimless wandering.

I was loving it until I died instantly while exploring a conveyor belt area. Please don't include instant death areas they are so annoying or maybe have a sign saying: Warning! Instant Death do not go in there. 4/5 because my death sucked and because it is pretty darn good.

This was a really boring map. It takes forever to get to where you need to go.

Story sucks, Doomguy? Scarred? Fuck that? Grow some balls and come up with a more badass story! Too many inescapable death pits, and I spent 15 minutes looking for where to go, not sure why you put the middle section as hidden... but overrall I'm gonna be objective and give you a 4 because I can see you did put a massive effort into and the level does look attractive, and there is some fun to be had here. Granted your a fan of modern wads.

      An enjoyable set of maps of easy difficulty (MAP 07 is medium) in UV with simple design that worked well for me. Finished the whole set in 02:40 min. Certainly worth a shot!

      I rarely quit a wad in disgust, but this one did it. It was pushing a 5 star experience, but then the slaughter stupid started ~map19 and only got worse. It's not clever, not amusing and absolutely not entertaining. It ruined an otherwise good wad and left a very sour taste. Why do mappers do this? Played on HNTR and it really was that bad.

      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.
