Heretic Upstart Mapping Project (HUMP)

About This File

The Heretic Upstart Mapping project was made to get people into mapping for heretic. It includes many maps by people who had never mapped for heretic before, and some older maps that authors had never published.

NOTE: All maps are designed to be wand-started. They have been arranged roughly in order of difficulty, so continuous play will also work. To wand start: When you enter a map, type "engageXY" where X is the episode number and Y is the map number given below (So type engage11 for E1M1). This will restart the level with only your wand, staff and no items. Jumping and Crouching have been disabled in this wad. You will not be needing them.

Story: The servants of Korax, D'Sparil and Eidolon swept through Parthoris, wracking your homeland and murdering your kin. You fought valiantly, but as your city was overrun you were captured and imprisoned with many others, to be turned to golems or executed if the flesh was not willing. Waiting in your cell you saw the foul methods that were used on your brethren. Surely it would be your turn soon... The day all but yourself had perished or turned to the dark wills, a portal opened briefly in your prison cell. A small wand and staff dropped out, the portal immediately closing behind. To your astonishment, the means of escape lay at your feet. You praised who or whatever had sent help, tucking the wand into your belt and grasping the staff, you prepared yourself for what lay ahead...

Title slate and Title music: HexenMapper

Note that E1M5, E1M6 and E2M2 may not be finishable in Doomsday as they require boss actions to lower floors. Currently we haven't been able to work out the current boss action definitions for Doomsday. Any help would be appreciated. Likewise if anyone knows how to get heretic to display par times in the intermission we would also love to hear from you. You can email me at: thespidersrepublic@hotmail.com

      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

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
