Special: Big, open spaces. Lots of them. Platforms. Woo-hoo!
No secrets here; just loads of weapons and some large
spaces. From a distance it's actually quite useful
to strafe with the rocket launcher...
One playing note -- the two teleporters on the lowest
level are special. Each one teleports to *four*
different locations, depending on which side of the
teleporter you enter.
Some interesting things I learned in this one:
The BFG has a fairly limited range. If you fire it
from one side of this arena to the other, you won't
get a great strike with it.
When I was first writing this, I put three or four
rising blast shields on each of the four outer
platforms. These shields would raise and lower
according to switches on the bottom platforms. When
I tried it, however, Doom2 crashed with a Visiplane
Overflow error. Apparently there were just *too*
many surfaces visible at any one time.
Please email me with any suggestions, critiques, or advice.
