Rowdy Rudy II is ready for release. We have a fantastic 20 map community project here (plus 2 bonus maps) and I think fans of classic style TCs and partial conversions will enjoy this set. Here's the finalized maplist:

Note that the bonus maps are only for advanced source ports such as PrBoom+ or ZDoom-family ports. They use Boom features thus are not compatible with Vanilla or Chocolate Doom (although the main campaign is very much vanilla!)
I'd also like to give a huge thanks to the following:
Aurelius for lots of general support, DeHackEd assistance and testing,
@Tango for tips with fast weapon switching and help with decals,
@Gez for the awesome titlescreen, help with switches and other contributions,
RonnieJamesDiner for help with glow effects in GZDoom and Zand,
and our testers: @Dimon12321, @Horus, @FrancisT18, DavidN and Aurelius.
You guys are awesome!

Despite being 100% vanilla compatible, POWERTRIP has many substantial changes to the enemy roster:
Zombieman - 40 HP
Shotgunner - 60 HP
Plasma Guy - 60 HP (replaces Spectre)
Chaingunner - 80 HP (replaces WolfSS)
Flamethrower Guy - 80 HP (replaces Keen)
Rocketman - 120 HP (replaces Hell Knight)
Psycho Imp - 150 HP (replaces Arachnotron)
Blood Demon - 180 HP
Toxicacodemon - 400 HP
Flame Caco - 600 HP (replaces Pain Elemental)
Mini Mastermind - 500 HP (replaces Chaingunner)
(Height: 56 / Diameter: 96 / Drops Chaingun)
Flying Mastermind - 2000 HP (replaces Spiderdemon)
(Height: 100 / Diameter: 200)
Of course, many of the classic enemies remain untouched:
Imp - 60 HP
Lost Soul - 100 HP
Revenant - 300 HP
Mancubus - 600 HP
Archvile - 700 HP
Baron of Hell - 1000 HP
Cyberdemon - 4000 HP
The weapons have also undergone some substantial changes:
The fists are faster and far more powerful.
The chainsaw is double bladed, so it's twice as tough! Makes sense, right?
The pistol is now an assault rifle with 100% accuracy. It's very slightly less powerful than the normal chaingun, but the pinpoint precision more than makes up for it's somewhat slow ROF.
The shotgun is now totally automatic. Hold the fire button down and watch it go! Lays down whole waves of enemies in seconds.
The double-barrel is now pump-action! Deliver two loads of buckshot quicker than ever before.
The chaingun has a much faster ROF making it very effective and stunning even the meatier baddies.
The rocket launcher has a faster ROF. Uhh I couldn't think of anything else but it works ok sheesh
The plasma rifle doesn't have that little recoil animation anymore. Also GREEN!
The BFG9000 now shoots big fireballs that emit 2 damage tracers rather than just one, making it even deadlier than usual.
