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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

      Is a charming little blue map, i like it!

      Totally playable and good looking even today. Be wary that there are time-based switch puzzles here that must be solved in order to progress. MAP28 is also a nightmarish switch hunt in an open, Doom 2 Downtown-like area.

      EDIT: It appears Tag 666 doesn't execute properly in some source ports or if complevel is below 3.   Let me get E1M8 out of the way first because it's the most confusing thing I've witnessed in a Doom wad. So, you got four switches that kill four barons outside of the map, to make two walls & four marble cubes lower. Basically, a special tag 666 situation. I press all four switches & nothing happens after I wait for awhile. I tried with PrBoom 2.5.1.4., PrBoom 2.5.1.5., GzDoom 2.4.0 & on the latter, only worked once. I looked up the walkthrough of it & there is nothing I did different from the people playing it but they got it to work somehow. It's very strange. If anyone knows what's up, I'd like to know.   The rest of the wad is alright. Maps are way too lengthy and forgettable & just cluttered with too many enemies. Traps are fairly challenging & were the best part of the wad.   But all that wasn't worth it for the last map of the wad to crap on me.   Totally not worth a Cacoward 2011.

      All the maps are above average, but this is Legendary wad because of Ty and Map10, which is true masterpiece of art. 5/5
