About This File

A new 360ø nighttime sky that ROCKS for all of id Software's games and for Team Eternal's "Eternal Doom III". I figured that most "id-holics" have most, if not all of id Software's games, so I packaged them all in one ZIP file rather than separately , and included as a bonus, one for Team Eternal's "Eternal Doom III".

This is not a night sky, it's a space sky, with highly visible galaxies. It won't make sense on Earth because you can't see galaxies with the naked eye, but shall work in space and on any astronomical bodies without or with thin atmosphere.

 

Also there's a problem with the permission sections in the text files. The outer text file, published with the archive, says:

Quote

Authors MAY use the sky textures with *NO* modifications to the graphics
(including the "SKYx" sections of the "TEXTUREx"/"PNAMES" and the "MAPINFO" (in
Hexen) resources) to build additional levels with, but *CREDIT ME* for the sky
textures in your WAD's text file.

which gives you limited permission to use the sky in your maps, but still not permissive enough to let you adapt the graphics to any modern rendering.

 

However, the internal (from the archive) text file says:

Quote

Authors MAY NOT use this texture pack (NITESKY.ZIP) or any of it's included
files or resources (including the "SKYx" sections of the "TEXTUREx"/"PNAMES",
the "MAPINFO" in the Hexen resources, or the original "Space2.gif" night sky
image) to build additional levels without prior written permission.

which, while suspicious of lack of attention on writer's part, on this current state it means that you just can't use these graphics in your mods. You can try to contact the author to get a permission, so there's that chance.

 

So which one is it? Because without further clarification, "yes AND no = no".

It's a sky texture replacement wad, it has several files for each iwad and pwad like Eternal Doom. It's a bit dated these days, but for true old-school feel it should be enough. If you feel tired of default sky textures in your iwad playthrough, load this and enjoy different view and feel.

This would go well with some of the Master Levels which have their own simpler starry skies.

      Not that crazy as you can think from the title, it's a interesting map with some cool design choices and some nice small puzzles as well. Fun to play and run swell.

      Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

      Meh, conceptually is not a bad map but in reality is really boring. Lots of squares and platforms, lacks of powerful guns and a boring gameplay. Also how the exit can be activated? The teleports are shitty as well.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.

      This right here is one of the oldest joke wads ever made, and its parodies of bad map design are still relevant to this day.
