About This File

April Fools 2015 STARTAN Challenge Project: Make a map using PRIMARILY Doom Builder's default Doom 2 textures (STARTAN2, FLOOR0_1, CEIL1_1). You can use other textures too, even custom textures if you want, but use primarily the default ones. Format, compatibility, map size, gameplay style and your effort doesn't matter. All maps are accepted unless they're malicious. Custom music is allowed, but D_RUNNIN is preferred.

It does what this mapset promised - lots of generic doom builder 2 textures and looks. Most of encouters are fun to play, until map 07 and till map 11 end. So, if you want full fill your day with startan textures, this wad is for you.

It was pretty fun til you get to Maps 7 to 11 when quality goes down the drain & the last map has no exit(?). I would definitely just play the first 6 maps & skip the rest.

I give the first six maps 4 stars. The remainder deserves zero. While wrapped around a silly concept, the first 6 maps are made by skilled and experienced mappers and they're fun, pretty, challenging and interesting. So, my recommendation is to play the first 6 maps and then stop.

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5
