      Server Downtime   01/17/18

      Our server host (Linode) is going to be applying patches to address the Meltdown vulnerability over the next day or two. Because this involves patching the hypervisor that the Doomworld virtual private server runs under, this will require some degree of downtime. Some of our servers are due to have this maintenance around midnight-ish tonight, America time, and the other server is due to have this maintenance tomorrow around midnight-ish, America time. So if you try and come to Doomworld and stuff appears to be broken, don't freak out!

About This File

Squadron 417 has earned a reputation throughout the solar system as one of the finest two, three, and four man fighting units ever to come out of the Deimos Academy on Mars. As such, your unit is continuously asked to go above and beyond the call of duty. Your mission is very simple: - To go from site to site clearing any and all alien infestations you might find. - These sites could be anything, so you must be prepared for any and all eventualities.....

Good Luck, you will need it!

Base

New levels from scratch! (Is there any other way?)

Bugs

None, our work is purrfect!

some very questionable design decisions prevent this from being actually fun. the combat is INSANE though. might give it a second play.

like all maps from this era, in very quirky, but it's also damn fun. Cool little custom assets here and there too. From the same author of Area51, and it shows.

Hardcore oldschool maps with a manly soundtrack. On Map17 there is a "split" moment where you need two players to progress, the rest is playable in SP too. Awesome.

I have been enjoying this pure coop WAD since its heyday, back in 1996 and I still find it to be one of the most satisfying cooperative experiences I have had, to date. Contrary to a previous review, the levels are light-years ahead of their time in design, intricacies, detail, and pure beauty. It is a non-stop action/puzzle WAD that will leave you and your friends craving for more. Best if played on Difficulty 3: Hurt me Plenty. -- HeroShot

One of my favorite old school megawads. Good fun blasting the crap out of enemies with your RL and BFG. Altier 6 (MAP10) is my favorite map, a city like map under a dark sky that contains a looping road. New Co-op was extremely hard but somewhat beatable. Crushing the Cyberdemon in MAP01 was funny. I got a lot of my early map design inspiration from some of the maps in Squadron 417 back in the 1990's. - pcorf

This is not so good, some good action at times, but lousy design and you can get stuck :( - PerOxyd

NB: Almost all the maps are OK for single-player too. See the demopack at www.doomworld.com/sda for details.

      Expansive cave area with some lava and chasms. You run through arenas much like those "classic" shooters like nu-Shadow Warior, Painkiller or Hard Reset. Ugly room design with next to no lighting variation. Monsters spawn in hordes by scripts but the fights are usually very easy due to circle-strafing. Poor level.

      The map is a pleasant, detailed and HUGE structure.  On the other hand it is too labyrinthine and the fight are not engaging. Things I hated: two little buttons (too difficult to find) and the mice (they don't blend well in the futuristic/nightmarish setting of Doom). Things I loved: vehicles/aircraft and the wide variety of textures.   P.S. For a first map this is absolutely stunning. My compliments...

      Pretty solid ZDoom megawad.  Very few maps that I found poor in quality.  Challenge level is acceptable, secret levels are pretty fun.  Wished more ZDoom wads were like this.   I would have rated this five stars, but failing to credit me for the boss music in E1M9 merits four stars.

      Played on UV.   The Good If you need more of a classic Dos DooM from 93, then look no further. This was done brilliantly, especially the Cyberdemon & Spider Mastermind battles.   The Bad Nothing.   In summation Don't miss on this one. Three episodes of goodness!
