About This File

Nine techbase-styled maps meant to be used as the new E1 for FreeDOOM. Mostly taken from idgames and existing FreeDOOM resources, with a couple modifications here and there to not use textures outside of DOOM1.WAD and to vanilla-ize (not just limit-removing, pure vanilla)

4 stars good episode I don't even care many of the maps are recycled as they are used well which is what matters.

The first bunch of levels are good, but they lose their luster later on. E1M7 is a fairly boring switchhunt, and E1M6 is outright broken. I enjoyed it, but it could use some polish. 3.5/5 - ZZ

Ripping freedoom off for the first level is really lame, even for lazy mappers.

^no sometimes things are greater than the sum of their parts anyways. some of these levels were specifically mentioned "this level would do better if it was in an episode" in one review or another. recycled is fine as long as the author permits.

Well done. Tested with Doom v0.99 and it worked! 5/5!

^^^^ should understand that recycling is often okay as long as it's done with consent/credit. I was able to hunt down five of the levels (M3,5,6,7,9) here on /idgames and all permit reuse. Since E1M8 was by the author, that only leaves three left in question, and there's no evidence to support reuse w/o permission. Also an episode can be better than the sum of its parts. Many of these reused levels were probably better in an episode to begin with, so their use here can only be treated as "the parts".

It's not bad, but a serious flaw destroyed my good feel...E1M6's Sector 61 cause major HoMs, and I stuck on there by falling into that sector and cannot get out. E1M7 Sector 141 is inescapable...E1M8 just too...plain and boring... It seem Shadow1013 didn't test his modified shit before release at all, really ruined... 3/5

^ That's because this was for a vanilla version of Freedoom. It could even have been all of those same maps "fixed" to prevent VPO crash, etc. In fact some other maps did get used (E1M4 and E1M7at least). Biggest problem is it needed more testing, but not many ppl care about Freedoom or even just vanilla anymore...

There have been two vanilla Doom 1 megawad released just this year so far, Base Ganymede and DTWiD. :) Plenty of love still going that way.

It isn't just you. That's what I hate about many of these amateur wads is the ammo supply and monsters. E1M7 is so full of imps and pinkies, attempting to complete it from a pistol start is ruthless. You would think the map designers would actually test their work from scratch to see how much ammo and health they have and ensure that you aren't always completely dry by the time you finish the level.

It's not completely compatible with Doom Shareware v0.99 - v1.2 . The game crashes if you access E1M9 (it says the game can't find some textures) and there's an elevator that makes the game crash in E1M3 as well.

Is it me or is E1M7 impossible to do from pistol start?

      this is a big ol' exploration map heavily inspired by e2m2, the doom 1 map of the same name. this map takes the concept of the crate maze and not only runs with it but improves heavily upon its inspiration; this map is bigger, harder, and more fun than the original in just about every way. it doesn't use doom 2's bestiary to its full potential - the arachnotron and pain elemental are nowhere to be found - but what it does use it uses well (though i do feel like the mancubus is a bit over represented in this). despite that, it's still fairly easy, with the hardest bit likely being the very start of the map when you have nothing but a shotgun and have to deal with dozens upon dozens of hellspawn, as well as the various encounters with the cyberdemon.   while it is large and it is comprised primarily of crate mazes, it's actually pretty easy to navigate your way around the map. it's divided into several distinct areas, all of which have landmarks to help the player know where exactly they are. i will say, however, that having almost nothing but crates does make the map feel a bit samey after a while, which for a map of this size isn't ideal.   overall, if you're big into exploration and aren't super concerned about not being challenged to an extreme degree, then there's no reason not to check this out. it's fun, rewarding, and while the looks can be a bit monotonous the gameplay is varied enough to keep things interesting.

      One of the best megawads I've ever played. I especially like map05, though the

      I've just finished playing all the maps, and seeing this TNT maps remade is a great feeling. Generally they are all a step above their original counter part, but also having played TNT Revilution I can't help but compare then, and putting the maps that pull the same inspiration side by side there is no contest, Renascence is left way behind, not to say there are bad, but Transduction and Fortress of Bullets are just in another League.
      Now, Taking advantage that I'm talking about Revilution it's map 18 (Hell's Signs) was made by Eternal and probrably is a little glimpse of what episode 2 of Renascence could've been. Finally, I find it very tragic that this isn't getting a sequel, but since Eternal still an active mapper so the hope isn't complete lost.
