* Map Information *
Map 01: "No apologies" by Mysterious Haruko:
Old map: "Alapolgy" from "DS-61-3.zip" map compilation by Malcolm Sailor
Build time: It took few months with procrastination
skill levels implemented: Yes.
Music: Descent map01
Comment: This map basically was created by merging two different small maps from same wad into one bigger map. I tried to preserve some author intended things( I don't look at you original exit route) and expand some areas. I like how this creation turned out, even if this caused some fustration from my side. Ammo preservation and punches(or chainsaw) will be your best friend, because I like to be salty sometimes while I do mapping.
Map 02: "Emerald Jail" by R1ck
Old map: Project Purgotary - https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/90914-project-purgotary-map-132/#comment-1673214
Build time: 10 months like that
skill levels implemented: Yes, up to -skill 4 (UV)
MIDI used: Rough and Tumble - Akira Saito (midi by alluro95, download from http://alluro95.tripod.com/MIDIMusic/Raidenmidi.htm)
Rick: This map was original made by me with not enough knowledge of doom mapping and it's embarrasing. Time for some epic designed overhaul and atone the old sins :p
Map 03: "AXIX" by ShoDemo (formerly ShotgunDemolition)
Old map: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/axix
Build time: I had a break of a few months in between,
so I can't exactly count build time.
However, when I worked on it, I would build for 1 hour each day or something.
Skill levels implemented: Not much and the default difficulty is UV. However, in certain trickier areas, I changed some of the monsters or I removed a small amount of them in the lower difficulties.
MIDI used: Last minute change. I used Queen's The show must go on (don't ask me why, I thought it was good for a MIDI in Doom).
ShoDemo: I just picked up the map randomly from idgames
and I thought it looked pretty cool, but it was very hard,
due to having very little ammo and many monsters, so I
decided to rework it and at the very least make it more playable.
Anyways, I am happy with the result.
Map 04: "Warehouse X" by DerFurer'sFace
Old map: X-treme doom 2 (system control) http://www.moddb.com/games/doom-ii/addons/doom-2-extreme
Build time: 2-3 months (1 month spent building)
skill levels implemented: all 5
MIDI used: Unknown (from original WAD, no credits given)
DerFurer'sFace: Xtreme doom was an early wad that always fascinated me because in my early 2000 days of doom the kind of wads i knew about were basically C-chest and cyber dreams,
but when i found X-treme doom it was different because i've never played a Wad that used as extensive of a DeHacked script. It looked fast and cool. Howerver the maps themselves were either very simplistic or were complete copies of base ID maps. So i wanted to give one of the maps a bit of a new identity and make it look more official, while trying to give it that fast paced action it had before without the use of its DeH file.
Map 05: "Icemare" by riderr3
Old map: Icenite2.wad
Music: D_MESSAG from Evilution
Single Player: Designed for
Difficulty Settings: Yes
Build Time: 2 weeks
Map 06: "Purpled" by DeXiaZ
Old map: Purple25
Build time: about 7 hours
Skill levels: yes, mostly used from the original version. Arch-viles spawns only on Ultra-Violence.
Midi used: Doom E1M7, like the original map used.
DeXiaZ.: Author of the original map said to mention him (Karl J. Solie) in credits. And also write the message about new version/remake of his map. Well, he posted this map before I've born, lol.
Map 07: "Boomcave" by NIH
Old map: The Hell Cave - https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/g-i/helcv
Build time: I dunno, tbh. A little bit of mapping every now and then, basically.
Skill levels: Yes, UV is the intended difficulty, if that gives you too much trouble, try HMP, it uses a bit less "blunt force"
Coop: Not recommended
DM: On such a map? No way
MIDI: "Hollow Tree" from 'Battletoads in Battlemaniacs'
Map Commentary: I liked this map's predecessor, but I could see why a lot of people wouldn't, and from my POV that's mostly due to awfully sluggish pace. So I added some more firepower, added some more adequate opposition, cut some of the grind in favour of other stuff that I thought was more fun, and there you have it.
