The Top 25 Sector Ships of All Time

Recommended Posts

Jimmy, you're amazing. I've thought about doing something like this before, but I knew I'd never be able to remember where I saw all those boats.

Fun list :D

 

I just want to shout out this goliath cargo ship from Interception II (Map27):

...and yet another Pinchy effort, from the unreleased Cereal Killer:

There are more than a few maps with boats that I remember playing, but I can't bring back the mapsets' name to mind for a couple of them.

There's this one for Heretic

Doomsday Machine from NDCP

Afterlife from Community_Chest

 

One for Doom that made use of ZDoom effects to allow to swim under it. We had to go to the boat to get a key. It was next to a small warehouse with the usual Doom crates and stuff. Pretty basic detail level overall IIRC.

 

Another was a large city's dockyards with two or three cargo boats on it, as well as sector cranes and stuff. Much more advanced detailing, kinda similar to that Interception 2 screenshot but the boats weren't as big.

You missed the ship in Final Heretic Chapter One: The Docks by UltimateLorenzo

 

EDIT: ok, Gez already noticed this.

 

So, now I wait for something similar but for starships

The same WAD has a spaceship too:

This is the kind of content I like to see on my Doomworld. Easily the best thread about ranking sector boats I've ever seen. Thank you, John Paddock.

Thank you, @Jimmy! That was a really all of sudden, and also very pleasurable!

 

BTW, there was a ship assault mission in Covert Operations TC:

Trying to find out when DWANGO4 was released, but if after Fri 13 May 1994, then SHIP.WAD wasn't the first, it would be EVIL_E.WAD by Ian Suhrstedt ( image from another DW thread where EVIL_E was cited yet again for this ship :) )

Unrelated but thank you for this, I have been trying to remember what this WAD was for years.

haha what a great list. I should point out though that essel is entirely responsible for that BTSX E1 boat, I had no hand in it whatsoever D:

I feel a Doom WAD made out of all of these boats should be made in the form of a playable game of Battleship.

 

Have Zombiemen arm the guns and the oars.

 

Boats are easily one of the more identifable things in levels, and i am always impressed by them when they are found. Impressed because i can't imagine designing a sector-based boat being an easy task.

 

Jimmy, you are to be thanked.
