About This File

This is part 2 to my seven level campaign titled "Severed". Wanted to get this one out there as soon as I could. Planned on releasing the campaign as one whole wad, however due to the time it seems to be taking me to develop a single level, I decided to now release my campaign in parts. When it's finished, I suppose I will package it all together and put a bow on it. It's Nothing Personal is a personal homage to one of my favorite Plutonia levels: Go 2 It. I didn't structure any part of the level after Go 2 It, but rather tried to recreate a fair but severely challenging map remniscent of Go 2 It. In no way do I think my prowess can stack up to Plutonia's greatness, by the way. Anyways, at first I didn't intend for this level to be completeable by pistol start (this map was originally intended to be the level before the final level in the campaign), but tweaked it just barely enough so that it's possible to do such. I've play tested it on Ultra Violence from pistol start and if a mere mortal like me can complete it, I'm sure any of the Doom Gods can do it. There are some vague switches and obtuse secrets to be had, and even I felt put off by it, but it seems to encourage full exploration of the map, so I hesitantly left them in. Just like my previous Severed map, this one utilizes a lot of the neat zDoom/Skulltag engine features, such as jumping, swimming, zooming, etc. I also decided to leave out the heavily colored sectors in this one as well, as it didn't seem to fit in very well with the feel of the level. Big thing here too: this map slows up like a bitch if all the full effects of the Beautiful Doom wad are left on, so go into the options and tweak whatever is neccessary for your machine. After this lengthy description, I would like to say ANY feedback would be greatly appreciated! Especially critical! I'm still learning the ropes of publishing and creating, so I would like to know the brutal truth about anything you think about this map. Thanks!

This level played good but confusing about the process route of the level. And those Beautiful Doom shit make my game slows down to unplayable in the final battles. The yellow key isn't needed to completed the level I guess. 3/5 -playerlin

Very awkward in my opinion. Detail is average, but it's a good level... I can only give it 3 out of 5... it feels like the effects are trying to make up for the lack of texture variation. But I still recommend giving it a try. 3/5

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      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)
