I've designed PWADs since DOOM 1.1
Description : Inspired by Lachlan Stewart's excellent "Dandy3"
level. In it, I discovered the joys of crossfire,
plus I've had this general layout floating around in
the noggin for a while. Plenty of action and lots o'
strategy. Weapons are abundant and their locations
vital to some of the more subtle strategies involved.
I'm semi-retired from .WAD making, so I took no
steps to align any textures. If this just totally
spoils the level for you, so be it, but I don't have
the time anymore to devote to making these things.
Unless of course, you want to pay me... ;)
I mention this, because the last two 3-D games I
played, Dark Forces and Witchaven, had noticeable
"newbie" level mistakes, and on the whole were just
not that impressive. (Compare Episode 1 of DOOM to
the illogical structures of DOOM 2 for a good
example of this..)
I say this shit about retirement, but it has been
like a week or so since I last released a .WAD, so
you can tell I'm hooked.
Additional Credits to : Cory Tucker for his excellent playtesting
abilities and patience. Cory also provided the
majority of the sounds in this .WAD
Greetz: All the regulars on FIDO DOOM: Eric Schreiber, Doug
Bora, Bill McClendon, Jim Kennedy, Chris Roberson,

All of these guys are very knowledgeable in the DOOM
department, so stop by and ask away. One of us will
be glad to help.
