Description : A 32 level megawad of small maps for Doom 2. Your
mission is simple. Blast you way through techbases,
dungeons and hellish abodes and save Earth from
extinction. These maps contain no more than 300
linedefs apart from the much larger super secret
level. Zone 300 = Short, quick and simple.
Credits : id for Doom, Codeimp for Doom Builder, and the
authors of all the other software.
Rayzik for the level names.
Nightfright for other minor corrections.
Design Info : Well after months of inactivity in mapping I
thought I'd surprise you all with a new release.
I wanted to challenge myself to make a complete
32 map megawad with a complete original musical
score in less than 2 months. The maps on average
contain around 50 to 100 monsters. The good thing
about smaller maps that it was much easier for me
to get the gameplay balance right. Inspired by
Doomworld's 100 linedef project I thought to myself
you could make decent levels with no more than 300
linedefs. It should run with Vanilla Doom2.exe.
As you know I do not make slaughter maps so the
difficulty of the maps are comparable to id's
maps and if you find it too easy you can always
play it with -fast monsters or on nightmare
difficutly. Multiplayer and DM are supported and
there is extra multiplayer stuff in the maps such
as weapons for DM. The Icon of Sin also looks a bit
different in MAP30, its now greyscale and negative
and has a new name "The Icon of Damnation" deep
within the Eternal Core. The music is all original
although the intermission contains the remix of
the Doom 2 readme song used in Doom 2 Unleashed
(aka Pcorf Community Project). I wanted new music
because you always hear the usual music replacements
in megawads from other games like Duke3D and Rott.
Enough is a enough so now go and load up Zone 300
and try to beat it as fast as you can. All maps are
playable from a pistol start.
