About This File

This wad takes DogTag3, a classic set of team-based multiplayer maps from 1996, and updates them to be compatible with Skulltag's self titled game mode. Seeing as how these are some of the original maps which inspired the Skulltag concept to begin with, I thought it would be fitting to make them more accessible and playable with a modern online source port.

These play similarly to most Skulltag maps, with one interesting difference. Rather than simply grabbing the enemy team's skull from out of their base, two teammates must work together to get the enemy team's skull from their own base. One person must infiltrate the enemy base and flip a switch, which exposes the enemy skull back at their base for a few seconds, allowing the second person to grab it.

Once they do that, the person with the skull has to make a run for the north side of the map where the score zone is. There's a field of lava surrounding the score area that only the person with the skull can enter, but other players have lots of room to try and take that person out from the ground nearby. Once the person scores successfully, they get teleported back to the main area to try and score again.

Here are the changes I made in this version: - Removed the former MAP03 (FragTag). That's for two players, this isn't. - Radiation suits replaced with the red and blue skulls - Replaced the entire complicated scoring lane mechanism with Skulltag's score pillars and some behind-the-scenes ACS scripting - Removed the score displays and other 'indicator' objects since Skulltag does this stuff itself - Added more player starts per map - Replaced some of the MIDI music with better sounding MOD versions - Removed extraneous linedefs and textures - Removed access to the BFG bonus room, since in ST you cannot continue play after the point limit is reached. I considered turning it into a 2-point score zone or something, but for now it's off-limits. Maybe in a later update.

Brilliant! I've been looking for a DeathTag mapset that works within a modern port's score system and framework. I can't believe I didn't realise SkullTag comes from DeathTag... Now it's so obvious!

      I had raised my eyebrows when I read everything in the text file, but I really enjoyed this! It's totally adorable, all the assets were obviously hand-made with love, and the puppy is wonderful :) Just wish it was longer! I hope you do some more with this, it's definitely a welcome break. Maybe add some menu assets to really sell the idea.

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74
