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

awkward in some places (namely getting the yellow key), but decent overall. the texture choice bothers me in some spots and the detail is fairly below average but id still reccomend this one

      A overall pretty good first effort map with some small cool details, new textures, a pretty good theme and room construction, as well for clever secrets and layout design. Pretty cool stuff.

      Oh wow, I really loved this! I appreciated every map and it has been a step up from Fava Beans, my last WAD. I am a largely unskilled and inexperienced doomer so this may have aided my enjoyment. I loved the episode structure: first maps were warm-up through to big maps with larger enemy counts, through to maps with interesting mechanics but low enemy counts. Just had a ball with this. Tough in places but not unreasonable.   Highlights for me were (if I have to limit to two maps per episode): E1M5 - Long level with a cyberdemon in the nukage at the end  E1M6 - Circle straffing a cyberdemon on a stairs E2M3 - Loved the fast tempo of the map E2M4 - Tyson Imp punch level, wow I had to skill up E3M2 - Tough but fun with lots of routing to consider E3M5 - Loved the map but particularly the cyberdemon arena at the end   Sorry, but I also loved the gimmick maps (E1M8, E2M8 and E3M8) - you have to try these - short and really interesting. Also enjoyed the secret maps (E1M9, E2M9 and E3M9), short, punchy and fun!   Basically, loved the mapset and the variation across all of the maps, really fun. If it is useful I have uploaded my playthrough to my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSh0vj-6E2chQqx744Ajl2w

      Really enjoyed this WAD. Simple and straight forward with small maps and low enemy counts, but a great place to start for a new doomer. I had so much fun playing and particularly enjoyed E1M5, E1M6 and E1M7, these were really fun, nice tempo and I continue dropping back to play these again and again. It was really enjoyable to push the pace on these and see how fast I could finish.   Basically, enjoyed the calm encounters and nice simple aesthetics.

      Three minutes into the map I already like it. The starting room looks nice and the room after that can be difficult if you do not navigate it well enough. I do not understand why you would give a rocket launcher when the room in front of you which is filled with lost souls who will attack when you press the trigger. I do like how you give the chaingun and plasma gun before the big room with Barons and cacodemons. However, the room does have some strange textures for the cacodemons' pockets. I do like how one of the pockets is a lift to a switch that is required to press to make progression. I do like the room with the resources needed for the last fight but I do think the room was a bit too tiny and the fight would have been harder if you did not place the BFG in the open. 7/10

      This wad uses some nice texture usage and enemy choice and placement. Some of the traps can be evil when unexpected. You have only used stock DOOM II textures but still made some nice-looking rooms. You only made three levels in this wad but still managed to make fun and nice-looking wads. Good Job, 5/5.
