Waste Abandonment

About This File

Scour the corroded and desolate halls of abandoned waste. Rusted, leaky barrels of toxicity are your only friends here. The acidic stench of nuclear pollution fills the air as the demonic mother-lode awaits your challenge. Will you survive?

"Waste Abandonment" is a single map replacement for Doom 2, slotted on MAP08. This is my take on a pure tech-base styled map, and it utilized only stock Doom 2 resources to create its aesthetic.

Waste Abandonment is a medium sized interconnected level full of challenge that at first feels fair but becomes annoying towards the end of the level. The only fault with this map is how after the blue key is picked up the level turns into a light slaughter map with swarms of light monsters with the occasional revenant and archvile. The only improvement I could think of would to decrease the size of the late level monster swarms and add more mid class enemies like mancubus or cacodemons.

This level is like a spider web of connected openings with very short corridors in-between them. The layout feels open as you can roam through the nodes of this web freely. This level has all the elements that a good level should have. The only detriment is the terracotta-army placement of some enemies, especially towards the end of the level. There's also plenty of ammo to go around, but moderate amount of medikits.

      Its pretty ok. Decently impressive but in the first level there is a hall of mirrors effect for the sky. It sort of feels like plutonia at times with  some of the monsters.

      The map is awesome, great layout, architecture and texture choice. One of the best looking maps ever created. Some people rate it down because of its high difficultly due to the massive amount of monsters in some places. Even if I'm not that skilled I had my fun with this map.

      Never expected to see a doom mod from this room... A weird choice, for sure... Anyway, this is just your usual 90s wad, just not a real good one

      The Artifact is a classic 1995 three-level mapset. It might be one of the highest-quality 1994/1995 productions I've seen, standing alongside such releases as UAC_DEAD or Galaxia. Much like them, Artifact has something of an unique air about it... a feeling of a true adventure, where you can palpably feel the author's enthusiasm and creativity as you go, each new room and area somehow feeling unique and lovingly crafted despite the simplistic looks. One downside of the mapset is that progression is occasionally confusing (such as one door switch on map03, hidden on a column that lowers into the ground).

      A set of maps, carefully tuned for pistol starts, pretty hard/challenging. The maps are rather small and have exactly one secret. There is no stylistic consistency; there are a few bases and castles, caves, hellish maps and so on, everything totally mixed up. I can assume the earlier maps have their slots because they are easier and the later maps - harder. MAP26 is probably the most difficult one. mlm12 reminds me a bit of Going Down, as the levels are small, packed with enemies, and one different from the other. But mind, they are less polished than GD. Some maps have a pretty high 2000's level of detail (the ending corridor from MAP09), some others are much more basic looking (MAP02). IMO they are rather good looking (above average).   Bugs/problems: The mapper leaves all the doortracks without "lower unpegged" flag, so they move with the door, I'm sure he knew how to prevent it but he preferred the doors to behave this way. What is more problematic for me: unreliable W1 monster teleports, places where you can get stuck and decorations impeding player's movement, no Boom actions but some maps require -complevel 9 due to traps not working with limit-removing compatibility.   Favourite maps: 03,08,17,24,25,26. I would definitely recommend giving it a try: the maps are so different everyone will surely find something that appeal to them.
