About This File

Welcome to SAPIDUS.WAD, the 4th installment in the UCA storyline. This wad runs under e2m4 and supports single, coop, and deathmatch modes. It also supports limited difficulty settings (basically intermediate or ultra-violent). It was created using DEU5.1, BSP1.0, and a new program called REJECT1.0. For the reject, I used a reject value of 512, so if you need to change it, you have a reference value. It shouldn't be necessary, though - SAPIDUS runs quite smoothly on my 486sx-25 at a high detail, normal-sized screen. Kudos to the author of REJECT1.0!

SAPIDUS was designed with the assumption that the player is following the UCA storyline and will consequently play SAPIDUS as the level right after DIOPATRA (UCA and TALPOIDA are the first two installments). While SAPIDUS is playable as a stand-alone, but you might find it to be a major handful that way (after all, this is the main section of the enemy base, so you will encounter a lot of monsters). Anyways, I can complete this wad in about 43 minutes at UV level either as a stand-alone or within the storyline (keep in mind that while ammo is ample, it is probably not enough to kill all the monsters if my wad is played as a stand-alone - you will just have to run from some cacodemons....). Played within the storyline, it is very possible to get 100% across the scoreboard.

One of my all-time favourite DooM 1 maps.

Not bad. Enemies suffer from blindness though, but that's to be expected considering the map's age.

interesting theme (although not exactly great) but it repeats itself to hell. nonlinear, but that just makes it more confusing since the map looks the same everywhere you go, it honestly looks like it uses 10 sectors or less. i'd say it's pretty good for june '94 though, but there's much better wads that are older than this (see barsella's deadbs10 & mtfire09 for examples). still, it's in the better half of maps its age and worth looking at for nostalgia. *** -sargebaldy

I didn't like this at all. It's larger and has more enemies than most maps from mid 1994, but playing it is a chore, because the design is dull and repetitive. It reminds me of Matt Falk's "Death Star" level, but it's greatly inferior. Corridors, rooms, monster layouts are repeated over and over again. Even the final puzzle repeats itself. The monsters don't react until you shoot them, and there are few things more tedious than gunning down lots of demons with the plain shotgun.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10
