* Where to get this WAD *
It has been several weeks since you defeated the aliens, and since
then you have been spending your time searching through the ruins of your
home city, looking for survivors, either alien or human. So far, all you
have found is rubble and corpses. This changed when you came across one of
UAC's biological/genetic research facilities located in a remote section
of the city.
Before the invasion, the facility made itself useful by genetically
engineering plants and animals as part of a plan to increase the world's
food supply, but contact was lost shortly after the invasion began, and it
was believed destroyed. By the human-sounding screams and demon-like growls
coming from it now, it's obvious that it's very much open for business-
being used by the demons to continue their experiments- on humans.
Filled with rage, you realize that there is no time to call for
backup; the facility must be retaken before the monsters can use it to
rebuild their decimated armies, or worse yet, to create new horrors.
Drawing your pistol, you enter the facility through an unused doorway, hoping
to take the monsters by surprise... clean out the facility, and then find the
Version 1.2 notes:
1. Thanks to ZenNode, the file size is a little smaller.
2. Two sectors outside were combined into one.
3. The secret passage from the warehouse to the CyberDemon pit has had
its textures aligned, thanks to DETH.
4. The textures were also cleaned up a little in one of the labs.
5. The EXIT sign in the techlab is now lit up.
6. A couple torch-bearing sectors are now lit up. One sector was added to
the green hallway near the warehouse.
7. By popular request, I (reluctantly) made a few of the secret doors easier
to find. I still think if they're too obvious, they're not secret doors!
8. The "path" to the yellow key is now a little more obvious...
Version 1.3 notes: (Unreleased beta version)
1. Improved the sunlight/shadow effect in the main entrance room. (Not the
room where you start the level, but the facility's main entrance. You
came in through an unused doorway, remember?) No more shining wall above
and below the window where you can see the lovely BFG 9000.
2. Recessed a few computer wall panels because I got tired of how they were
flush with the walls. Required narrowing the window slightly in the
control room off the warehouse. The first room under the skylight looks
much better now, in my opinion.
Version 1.3f notes: ("f" means FINAL!)
1. Combined some sectors where I improved the sunlight/shadow effect.
2. Moved the radiation suit. Caused a slight change in my chosen path
through the level. :)
3. One cacodemon in the dungeon no longer appears in easy mode.
4. Revised the room with the switch to the door to the green hallway. Looks
a little more purposeful now.
5. Those of you that found it will have to find a new way into the super-
secret room. You know the one I'm talking about. :)
6. A couple minor cosmetic changes were made. Some were not, for they would
have turned into a project.
Author's hints/tips/comments: (Spoiler warning!)
1. Some of the computer terminals aren't just for show. :)
2. On Ultra-violence mode, the CyberDemon can be avoided, as long as you
stay off the grass...
3. There *is* a way out of the outdoor slime pit if you get trapped inside.
4. SAVE THE GAME before you try to pick up the yellow key. Trust me. :)
5. There is method to the amount/placement of monsters in the first room.
On Ultra-Violence, it may be better to just tick 'em off and let them
kill as many of each other as possible.
6. In the room with all the crates, the lift sectors stand out thanks to
the fact that they can only have one tag... which meant I couldn't tag
the light switch to them, as well as have them do what they're supposed
7. You can tell I learned level editing while building this level, as many
features are there solely because I wanted to try them out.
