About This File

A Marine Base on a distant outpost, taken over by the Hordes of Hell.

Although saved as E1M1, it is probably a better replacement for E1M4 or E2M2. It includes an exit to the secret level, but it's tough to find. The regular exit takes a bit of fancy finger- work to get to as well!

Only contains Weapons 1-5, but adds a Plasma gun (and no extra cells) in Deathmatch mode.

I've tried to keep all textures etc. pretty consistent, except for a few special areas, and I think I've gotten rid of all HOM effects. 8-) The only construction problem that I can find is in the deep blue Demon room (you'll know it when you get there), that sometimes the screen gets stuck in 'Cyberspace' 8-( - any hints on how to fix this gratefully received. Other than that, all walls have been aligned unless they (a) hide secret doors, or (b) are meant to be that way (cf the spiral staircase)

This is probably a little easy as is, but I'm going to add more monsters for UV, and take away a few imps and sergeants for ITYTD

As this is my first level, I'd be really pleased to get some feedback, especially from Watcher (there's only one small maze 8-)) and Cameron Newham - you guys write the best damned reviews I've EVER read! - even if I don't always agree with you.

So, Play and Have Fun, but most of all, Do it to them, before they do it to you...

Large sprawling level, fun to explore and figure out a couple of puzzles. The other reviews covered the flaws, to which I can add that you can get stuck behind the corner pillar in the reg. exit area and the cheap gotcha crusher.

Very stupid idea of putting the exit there. I could access it without any keys. Good first try though.

Won't argue about the key problem, but I'm a sucker for Doom anyway.

This is dated July 1994. It's a superficially decent '94-era E1 techbase level that needed a bit more work. The design and layout are okay for the period, there are lots of baddies, it's non-linear, fairly big. But it has issues. If you know where to go you can dash to a secret exit in five seconds or so; there's a pointless lift puzzle that breaks if you approach it the wrong way; lots of wandering in non-obvious damaging sectors. It's not awful, just unpolished.

      My comments are regarded to these maps and the rest of the 8 maps found here = https://www.doomworld.com/files/file/18251-zdmp2014/
      I've played all maps on UV. The big majority of the maps are good, but some really stood out. Maps made by Dhu Man Yhu, Walter Confalonieri, sincity2100, Jaws in Space, FireSeraphim, Eradrop and Toxie Rocks are really nice, worth downloading just to play these. All the other maps are fine with exception of 3: BloodyAcid (couldn't play due to lag), Dobu Garu Maru (too long and confusing) and Obsidian (a puzzle map - not my cup of tea).

      Not five stars compared to modern maps.  Despite the late submission year, this wad dates back to May 29th, 1994.   I got it on an add-on CD in 1995.   Five Stars for its time to bump up the average as this was one of my favorite classic wads of its time... So much so I messed around adding scripting with more switches to manipulate a spawn number by its digits and spawn whatever there's a number for.   And here are those scripts for seven different switches to execute, though I recommend limiting selectible numbers.   And you could do something more involved like summon groups of monsters and implement the thing hate command to make them fight. #include "zcommon.acs" int haha; SCRIPT 20 OPEN     {     haha = 154;     }          SCRIPT 23 (void)     {     haha+=1;     printbold (d:haha);     }      SCRIPT 22 (void)     {     haha+=10;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 21 (void)     {     haha+=100;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 26 (void)     {     haha-=1;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 25 (void)     {     haha-=10;     printbold (d:haha);     }      SCRIPT 24 (void)     {     haha-=100;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 27 (void)     {     printbold (d:haha);     Thing_Spawn (random(3,6), haha, 0, 7);         }

      A cool ZDoom mapset with well-balanced new monsters, good music, and of course the star of the show: the new arsenal. I'm not the fan of the difficulty at some spots (did I miss something in map04 or is it meant to be an ammo-starved slog?) but when you've got the full arsenal at your disposal, the gameplay becomes really fun.

      Awesome Doom 2 chaos with a fresh look and weapons. Cheers The new weapons remind me of Q1 Malice. Loving the chainsaw replacement.

      There's definitely some ideas put into use here, but the result is rather sloppy. You start off with three teleporters in the first room, so going in blindly, I couldn't tell if I had to take one teleporter first or if I can complete the level in (almost) any order. To sum it up, you have to go through these teleporters in a linear order to complete the level, otherwise you'll be greeted by locked doors that serve as a reminder that you're going the wrong way. The level itself isn't overly confusing, but coming in the gauntlet room unprepared left a sour impression.   The majority of rooms are spacious and not very pleasing to look at. You'll see big open rooms with dirt and marble textures placed throughout, and aside of the pentagram room with Spectres and an Arch-Vile at the center, the map just boils down to dull rooms and hallways you can run past through. With good use of powerups, you can get by most threats without an issue. There's some bits of carnage, but the overall gameplay feels plain.   A little heads up, but when playing on a ZDoom port, the teleporters at the start of each area will teleport you to a random destination. That is because their lines are zero-tagged teleport actions, meaning they will teleport you to any destination placed on a zero-tagged sector. This can make the level more confusing to complete as you may end up in an area you aren't supposed to be at. When playing in vanilla, these teleporters will always teleport you to the start of the level.
