title : AROUND THE SKYPORT
release date : 3-16-96
Note : This wad is DEATHMATCH, for the newer
versions of Doom 1 ........ and
The Ultimate Doom.
It will not work with Doom 2,--------
Note 2 : Wad authors.... check out the curved
windows in the round room, without the
disadvantage of an attached court yard!
All three windows use the F_SKY1 texture
with no court yard and no white spaces
or flashes at the bottom. The advantage
to this type of window design, is being
able to put a room behind, (or next to),
an open window, (Windows in the center
of rooms, better looking towers and many
other possibilitys!). This should be the
hottest trick to come along in a long
time! It will be worth your time to
figure out how I did it! ....:)

description : DEATHMATCH, 2 to 4 players. - Easy to
identify exit. Circular court yard. New
type of windows, (never used before, to
my knowledge!). Circular lift to obser-
vation tower. Lots of teleporters. A few
secret rooms, hidden pannels, and invis-
ible walls (the hidden panels and walls
-Do Not Have- mis-aligned textures, and
are difficult to find by design... :)
This wad is set up like a war zone,
many locations to snipe from, but all
have an entrance and an exit to dis-
courage camping out!
The BFG and Plasma gun are harder to
find, depending on the skill level.
On skill level (1-2), which only has
shotguns, chainsaws and the chaingun,
.....the chaingun is harder to find.
The backpack is available on skill
levels 3, 4, and 5, and is also harder
credits : id software for the best game ever!;
And to Greg Jobe for the encouragement
to keep building wads!
* play information *
episode and level # : e1m5 -- I used e1m5, because the music
is quiet and boring, which allows you to
still hear the sound effects with your
stereo on, --(without resetting Doom's
config. before starting).
01around.wad file size: 122048 bytes
single player : No, - just to do recon, (recon is highly
recomended), --yes do this,----- or get
slaughtered in a deathmatch!. (There's
only a few monsters anyway,-- unless you
want to convert this wad to a single
player wad, then see below!)
cooperative 2-4 Player: Yes, -- (my grandmother plays this way!;
she's 87, ------ call her for coop play
at......... 1-666-grandma)! She'll help
ya fight monsters, wimp, or better yet,
............................Get a Life!
deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, 4 starting points. This wad is
designed for 2 players, but is plenty
big enough to work very well with 4
difficulty settings : Yes, (1-2) shotgun, chainsaws and the
chaingun, (3) adds a rocket launcher
and a plasma riffle, and (4-5) adds the
bfg. There are various monsters in the
levels; so if you don't like monsters
in DeathMatch, then simply choose no
monsters in the DeathManager---- or
monsters : one Cyberdemon
and some Imps
new demos : No, (a waste of time!)
new graphics : No, (new use of old graphics!)
new sounds : No - (Stereo alert!, - let's ROCK!)

equipment used : This wad was built and play tested on
386, 33's, with 5 and 6 megs of ram and
it played at above average speeds, so it
known bugs : None

This is my challange to everyone on the Internet
and anyone else who reads this text file.-----
In order to promote better wad files,-
(ever downloaded one that just don't work at all, or runs
so slow its like playing in peanut butter, or it has so
many missaligned textures, or worst yet, the same texture
through-out the wad,.... that it makes you want to puke!)
I offer the following:
(Not a new idea; I've heard of others doing the same.)
1. Use this wad as a base to build your own wad, (I
encourage you to to so; Don't even ask me!; just
change it, - anyway you want. Distribute it any-
where and everywhere, and in any format you want,
for profit or for free!. And also, I challange all
other wad authors to do the same!, (after all,
the majority of us don,t get paid for making wads
anyway!; so not letting anyone use your wad as a
base, is really just an ego trip;---Isn't it? !!!).
...............Too Bad--So Sad!!..................
At least beginners would have a good place to start;
then mabe we won't have to wade through as many bad
wads, to find the good ones! This concept should
eventually make all the wads offered, on the Net,
2. After you have completed your new wad, (using mine
as a base), put your name on it, take full credit
for it! -You don't need to mention my name anywhere,
(but I would be happy if you did so, in your text
file; but it's not manditory!) Just remember, your
new wad will have your name on it, so just make sure
its better than mine!, or else what's the point!!!!!
3. If you want different weapons placement or different
monsters, in different places, I would encourage you
to download ED209, (probably the easiest wad editor
to use, to change, weapons, monsters and textures).
(You can do most of the weapons and monster changes
in less than 5 minutes!). - If you noticed, I also
used a program called RMB, and another called Zennode.
RMB and Zennode are not needed to build or change wads,
they just help to speed up the wad a little. --- All
of these fine programs are available, as Shareware,
many places on the Net.
4. If your wad has any bugs, even just a small one,
that's hard to find, even if your looking for a
mistake, then, don't put it on the Net!. Fix it
first, or get some help to fix it, or delete it!!!.
People can forgive you for making boring wads once
in a while, but not defective, ugly, trash. (I go
over my wads in great detail before releasing them;
we also play test em for weeks, sometimes months,
working on the layout, weapons and monsters, ect.
I would be totally ashamed of some of the garbage
that's on the Net, if my name was attached to it.
You have to be a perfectionist, to produce even
a boring wad that works good, without bugs; even
a bad wad takes a little time and effort to make,
so why go to all the time and trouble...........
to produce garbage!!!!
You may distribute 01around.wad, provided you include
this text file, (01around.txt), with no modifications
to either of them.
You may distribute 01around.wad and 01around.txt,
in any electronic format, (bbs, diskette, cd, etc),
as long as you include 01around.txt, with 01around.wad
both intact, original, and togeather.
If you combine 01around.wad with other wads, this text
file, (01around.txt) must be included with the
new combo wad or wads.
