About This File

Big Spaceport is a collection of levels designed from scratch that are meant for Doom 2 veterans. They are very large, and far more challenging.

Play "Hey Not Too Rough" for less of a challenge, it lies somewhere between "Hurt Me Plenty" and "Ultra Violence" in the original game. For most players, HMP should provide plenty of action for your first time with these levels; the item placement and most count are designed to be fair. UV is for the second time through. You are expected to know the level layouts and at least half of the secrets to be able to succeed. While 100% kills are possible, you must be very conservative with your resources and remember where you left supplies behind.

well, combat may not be so bad, but there's a surprising lack of variety. this starts off in a mostly pistol-oriented map, where you get a chaingun at the end, and then the next two maps are moderately long. the final three maps can put some of the ones from Eternal Doom to shame, with some puzzling to do, some of it actually more frustrating than I would be led to expect. there's many dubious design decisions that simply must be pointed out. the final secret area in MAP02, what the FUCK? and another secret area in MAP05 with crushers whose sole purpose is to troll you. MAP06 is the best map in a number of ways, feels eerie, has lots of things to it (oh, and lots of items for the item count for each of the maps too). but one particular switch (Linedef 4962) does not work. I actually felt more and more frustrated the more and more I played this, it wasn't challenging, but it sure got me annoyed with how things were laid out.

Some genuinely cool mapping ideas marred by some really boxy/stringy layouts and some unconvincing outdoor scenes. The single lamp flooding rays of light around a bank of computers in MAP06 is a really cool effect, and it makes me wish that kind of care had been taken throughout the mapset. 3

Huge nonlinear (but not confusing) levels with lots of things to shoot at. Great!

I liked it, but I like large, spacious maps. An area on map 6 with the rocket launcher ambush is bugged though as you only have one chance to hit the button to leave out the door you came in or you have to noclip out. This was playing with GZDoom, by the way, default compat flags. Would have given this a 4 but the noclip part I mentioned bumps it down to a 3.

Played @ UV. Having said that, with all respect: why have you released this wad as such after that much work? Textures are missing and misaligned, too many lines are not shown at the automap, secrets are often badly hinted, doors which are not doors, monster placement is often horrible (fighting 170 imps & former humans with only a pistol is soooo 1994, often too dark, gameplay has no 'leidmotiv'. And UV is not difficult at all. 2/2 for the efford, and I would suggest you go using beta testers.

These are some great classic-feel maps, recommended.

Downloaded it. Very good, puzzling, nice classic design and atmosphere. Very hard and challenging on UV (well for me). No new music of GFX, just a nice bunch of maps here.

I concur, big ugly rooms, and a stupidly high amount of enemies with only the most basic weapons provided.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
