Fancy a trip to Phobos?

Recommended Posts

heres the story for a new WAD i've made

ive never released anything before so go steady


You were a hero.

You remember now, all of a sudden, how eight years back you fought for your species on the excuse for a ball of rock that is Phobos. You remember personally slaying the two 'barons', the masterminds, the kings of the operation, those who controlled the demon hordes. You then remember how the area was declared safe after the barons' deaths, acres of demon and once human flesh being a physical testimony to that apparent fact. You remember even being convinced yourself that the base was secure, and withdrawing from the moon with the remaining handful of survivors.

But what you didn't remember was the controversy surrounding UAC, and their inappropriate disposal of the problem, and how they just abandoned the base, and the slipgate technology intact, keen just to cut their losses and not waste any more money on the ailing project, doing so in an attempt to rebuild their name and status.

It was thrust into the public eye once again when demons started popping up in decomissioned bases around the solar system that were associated with the slipgate technology. It turns out that UAC were certain that the demon threat was not fully extinguished, but they were certain, however that the demons wouldn't have the technology to re-open the slipgate and the dimensional breach, and then therefore would no longer be able to rain themselves down in hellish clouds of flesh and bone to decimate Earth once again.

It also turns out though, that UAC were very, very wrong.


should be in /newstuff within the next 48 hours

That's an impressive set of maps there, I enjoyed them. But I have a couple of questions:

1. Will these maps (the first 3 ones) still be in Community Chest, given that you've now released them on their own?

2. If they are still going to be in CC, have you thought of any names for the maps yet?

(btw, I noticed a bad bug in map 04, in one of the teleport rooms)

It's in the teleport room with the red key in it. Two linedefs (the one linking the door to the room, and the one linking the wall console to the room) are facing away from the room, creating an impassible barrier and a HOM. Just flip those linedefs round and it's fine. (I've tried it and it's ok)

And don't worry, it won't get slated on Sunday, as I've done the reviews, and I really enjoyed it. (I've not mentioned the bug, as it doesn't prevent progress in the map)

1. These wads are all in a bulging /newstuff folder.

2. Thanks for the comments, very much appreciated. But which of my wads are they aimed at? (as I have 3 of them)

3. Just let me know where they are, and I'll give them a go.

You need to use Dehacked in order to edit the game text. Find it here.

Because I got it wrong, I forgot to put /utils/ after idgames.

(my fault - at the time, I was under pressure to get my 499th post in and then send the reviews to Ling)

It's fixed now.

(and also, the 3darchives server is a bit screwy at the moment - sometimes it won't let you in, sometimes it won't let you have a file etc.)

anyway, was just wondering, those of you who have played my first episode, would you recommend that i finish it up to a 32 map beauty or leave it as a small wad?

Share this post

hehe, i knew it was likely that this sort of thing has been done, ill do it again anyway. this is only a very loose basis anyway, ie not inspired greatly by any of the original doom maps, just in a similar style, as daft as that sounds.

IMO, 6 and 7 level wads are so much cooler than 30 and 32 level wads...

maybe so, but i dont think that was a fitting finale, i might carry it on till map11, god knows where itll go. Is it possible to have secret levels on any other map than 15, and a gatekeeper style thing on any other than 30

map01 - outer base
map02 - battery
map03 - flow
map04 - works
map05 - machine
map06 - base exit

Nope, it's not the Gods, it's me again, as it should be an underscore not a dash. (doh!)

It's fixed now, and this time it works.

Excuse me now while I go away and work out where my head is.
