Title : STARTREK.WAD
Authors : Kevyn Shellington and Derek Noel
Email Address : firstname.lastname@example.org and
Description : This Wad is for DOOM ][ only. Based on the
Startrek TNG TV series, it includes all new
grafix and sounds and is designed loosely
around the configuration of the NCC-1701D
Enterprise. We'd like to think that it's
almost like being there. I started it
because I wanted to have some kind of focus
for my next wad, so being a Startrek fan I
thought that would be a good idea. It was
NEVER originally supposed to be as huge a
progect as it turned out to be, but every
time I worked on it I thought of another
cool idea for it (grin).
It has been designed from the beginning with Deathmatch
playability in mind. (Of course! Is there ANOTHER way to play
Doom!?) Although some concessions have been made in the interest
of keeping the theme intact.
I do realize that there is another Trek.wad out there but I
had no idea until after all the grafix and wad design had been
done. Of course if you play both you'll know they're worlds apart
from each other.
There are many hidden areas and some cool strategies using
the Transporter room, so keep your head up. And using your ears
can really improve your chances at success in this wad. Oh, and
yes, there are only 3 weapons available in the game. They don't
use projectile weapons in the 24th century, so of course you
don't get any either. And do try and see if you can get the
BFG without cheating or looking at the wad with an editor. :)
Any constructive criticism or new ideas will be appreciated
(I already have some plans for version 2, including music, (but
I'm in no hurry) all flames etc. will of course be ignored.
Live Long and Prosper!
