* Misc Notes *
I realized that my favorite deathmatch levels (Raven level 1,
Ledges-x, and maps 7, 9, and 11 from Doom2.wad) uniformly share a concentric
design. I like big levels, and I figured that the best way to build large
levels yet still keep the map connected enough for "Frag-a-Minute" action
is to build the level in a series of concentric rings, with frequent
connections between rings to ensure that players never get lost or out of
shooting range from each other for long periods of time. The level is big
enough and stocked well enough with ammo to accomodate four player play,
yet 'cozy' enough for just two players to have a 'blast'. There are plenty
of ledges, windows, secret passages, and dark nooks and crannies for
memorable frags and 'sniper' styles of play, yet the level runs well enough
for the fast paced frag machine (my personal style) as well.
Try it out, and have fun!
