Description : Good mix of open spaces, hallways, teleporters
and lifts. Lots of invisible walls, and traps.
There are lights in the corners of the court
yard, that tell you in what general part of
the building to look for your enemy!
Single-barrel shotgun close to all starting
points; access to better weapons are at a
higher-risk, depending on where your enemy
is..... Watch your back!
The BFG and Plasma gun are harder to
get, with considerable risk involved.
On skill level (1-2), which only has
shotguns, chainsaws and the chaingun,
.....the chaingun is difficult to get.
The backpack is available on all skill
Note 2 : This is a large wad; but it runs very
fast! Also note that, all weapon hits
show on all the walls! (Including the
pistol !!!) You might want to study how
I did this!; It is also the secret to
fast playing wads! (This wad plays as
fast as most wads one-fourth its size!)
Credits : The makers of DOOM, the best game ever made!
: Emmanuel D. and Sebastien C. the authors of
4towers.wad, available from http://www.cdrom.com
: John Braum (Mach) for play testing and
the encouragement to keep building wads.

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 it's 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 Zennode. Zennode is not needed
to build or change wads, it just helps 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!!!!
