About This File

This was the first level of the Freedoom project from around 2006 to 2017. It has recently been replaced and so I decided to make some edits and fixes, to create a "definitive cut" version and release it stand alone. I chose the name "The Cursed Hangar" for this final re-issue.

The map is intended to be a play on Doom's E1M1 "The Hangar". It follows the rough layout of that classic map, but is slightly more complex and slightly more difficult.

The map is intended to use Boom features and so has moving floors, modified COLORMAPs, transparent textures, etc.

This PWAD is designed to work with Boom compatible source ports and Ultimate Doom v1.9. There's a DEHACKED lump that spices things up a little bit if your port supports MBF code pointers (most do).

I've also included two SFX that my brother and I contributed to Freedoom in the early days and which were subsequently replaced.

A short map that had quite a history with Freedoom, that being the first map of Freedoom when it was just Freedoom (as doom2.wad) and Ultimate Freedoom (as doom.wad), then to being the first map of the Phase 1 only, and now no longer part of the project. So history aside, the map itself is short but neat, which also made it a rather nice first map when it was part of the Freedoom project.

 

The map resembles the Hangar from the original Doom and it's pretty easy to tell right away. You go kill some Zombiemen and Shotgunners, pick up some armor, blast your way through the short level, and done. Some Boom effects were used well here, including one where the lighting of the room changes to something more menacing. Other than that, it's nice to see this map in the archive.

If you're looking for some badass map to challenge yourself with, you're in the wrong place. This map is not just a (cool) map.

 

It's a part of Freedoom's history.

Nice little map. I'd probably give it 2.5 stars. It's not very challenging on UV, but it was very reminiscent of a map from original Doom. I liked the open door when you go up the lift. That's always nice to see. The pipes were a good touch. There were some cool light effects, moving textures... boomedit.wad?

Thanks for sharing.

I did UV Max in 3:31.

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux
