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.

      Another in the Titan series. One of the simplest if you calmly take the time to find the hidden weapons. Moderately long but entertaining. Abstract.

      It took me several tries to unwrap the map but I really enjoyed it. J Flynn still amazes me. A tricky great map.

      This map is beautiful to look at and amazing to play. It reminds me of a something I'd see from a map in the late 90s and I love it.

      I'm breaking up with Valiant to start my new love with Hellbound. Best DOOM mapset that has been made. I have replayed it more than once with Brutal DOOM Platinum and Final Doomer(Hellboundguy class) and I still can't get tired of it. Cities, hellish maps, tech bases, I just love it. I also really like the combination of E2M1, E2M2 and E2M3 in Map19. Amazing stuff right there, I strongly recommend this

      I forgot to review it when I first finished it, but I played it again with final doomer so I think it's time.   Ancient aliens is beautiful, and it plays as well as it looks.  SkillSaw gives some of his best maps in his career, only matched by his heartland performance.  But the heavy lifting is really done by the presentation, stewboys midis always fit, and the fact the soundtrack is bespoke is incredible.  I personally enjoy all of the maps, only the secret maps have any issues fitting in, and secret maps are allowed to not be great.  My only issue with the wad are the inconsistent 3rd episode, and ironically it's skillsaw's work in that episode that is probably the worst (So good, but not as good as the earlier work in the wad) as the rest of the team turns in great work.
