Back to Saturn X Episode 3 [WIP]: It's just a thread bump, not an update

Mordeth release schedule as well!

Oh, girl! You should know that this kind of jokes are not meant to be done.
I almost have a heart attack!

:P

What about "savegame buffer overrun"s?

BTSX ignores those much like parts of Alien Vendetta and a lot of other vanilla wads. It's unfortunately not very avoidable without just making smaller maps with low monster counts, so the BTSX true-vanilla exe experience is saveless, unless you're using a patched exe that fixes the save limit.

Back to Ironman X :P

Mordeth vibes!

Some projects, such as Mordeth and Doom Millennium carry their belts of infamy. But they aren't deth yet, oh no.

 

For what it is worth, Mordeth's development history (Which is still readily available here and here) is a very interesting one.

 

And in general, there are some gems buried in the historic sand of the Doom community that absolutely are worth doing a Jurassic Park on. Atleast these dino's won't attempt to eat you :)

Those new screenshots are awsome!!

@esselfortium How many textures are unique to the BTSX series? 

I dunno if it's really a meaningful number since a lot of them are just basic variations on each other, but there are upward of 6000 in there, plus the flats.

Aim for the top. Add 3000 more!

Now that we have 2 Back To Saturn X's, and another on its way, will the team start creating the prequel series Saturn X? (LoL)

It's called Front From Jupiter W and will never be released to the public.

I'm glad it doesn't. I am more looking forward to Rear From Venus Z anyway, including its Turn Left At Mercury Shaft DLC.

Shall I not speak of the sequel, "Deep Inside Uranus Y" then?

 

Or was I not supposed to mention that? Whoops.

Those floor textures remind me of Perdition's Gate for some reason.

Yeah, PG had a few textures with roughly similar patterns of "streaky highlights". I think they were just used in the secret levels, though.

Just to give a couple example of what I mean.

"Back to Saturn X" is a reference to something called "Back to Saturn X", and there's no corresponding "Saturn X" pre-existing thing that a prequel could refer to. There's "Over the Neptune", though, so you can see I already puzzled out the super secret sequel project. :p

I absolutely love how despite these two shots being of thematically completely different scenes, they both feel so very... BTSXy.

I have a feeling that this WAD takes on several different moons. especially based on this picture below that Xaser posted a year ago.

Saturn has 62 moons, so there is a lot to choose from.

Dare i say it but, of the 2 new screenshots posted here, i find the one with the tree like structure to be more interesting. 

 

The first one (with the fake slopes and pipes) looks kinda meh to me. I dont find anything so interesting in it. Im sure the rest of the map looks awesome as does most of xaser's work, but, this screenshot just isn't doing it for me. Of course, this is just my opinion haha

 

But yeah, still cool to see some update on this :)

So is the BTSX series going to be a trilogy? Is this the final installment? I could be wrong.

I can’t wait to see how BTSX will be wrapped up at the end. The ending should blow my mind

DVII, Sunder, and now literally BTSX... Doomworld is officially self-destructing with hype.

 

Also, I hate to sound like a broken record, but… about that Episode 2??? :P

Back to Saturn X Episode 3:

Instructions to the Rusty Time Machine

I Can't Believe It's Not Vaporware!

 

This work-in-progress third installment in the Back to Saturn X series (a vanilla-compatible hyper-megawad, for those not in the know) takes place not on the titular Saturn X, but on the other side of a portal that leads... Somewhere Else.

 

What horrors await? Take a peek beyond the veil...

I found this series from the Bethesda ports giving 1 and 2 via add ons..was just wondering if you had any estimated release date for 3 and if itll be available via the Bethesda ports like the others?

No release date set, it'll be done when it's done. And whether it's picked up for the Bethesda port isn't up to us, but it'd be nice to have all three up on there. Thanks for your interest!

I am pretty sure that Back to Saturn X Episode 3 will be released within a year.

 

A Neptune year, obviously.

 

As to Mordeth, I prefer to say nothing...
