I can personally attest to this mapset being good as hell.

Another finnks release? This time in vanilla? I gotta play this one! I'll letcha know what I think about it when I complete it. The screenshots look amazing and have that classic feel to them, so I can only imagine how they play. Great work.

Very cool set, fun combat, fine visuals, lovely fireblu and good music selections. Played on crispy doom, UV/PS and had no serious issues, I knew you were going to pull no punches towards the middle half, coming after lunar lace :p

 

 

As for minor things: 

 

- In map 06, found an arachnotron stuck in the woods. The sector where it teleports needs to be moved away a bit. BTW I loved how you exhibited smaller portions of each "dimension" in the corridor, really added to immersion (yes, pun half intended)

- This tiny sector in map 09 is perhaps best not shown in the automap, it could be confused for a secret.

 

Thanks for sharing and hope more folks try this out, and hope to see more stuff from you in the future!

Thanks for giving the set a play! I'm glad a fellow FIREBLU enjoyer appreciated my texturing :P

 

I'll get on fixing those errors, thanks for reporting them.

Map07 Once you kill everyone how do you lower the pathway to the BFG?

 

That's odd, the bridge should raise to the level of the platform. For now I'd just suggest noclipping over, since there's no way of lowering it.

 

What source port are you using and what compatibility settings on that port? I'll add this to the fixes list for the next version.

Right, I've just been doing some testing with GZDoom and was able to reproduce what you've got in the video. If you set GZDoom's compatibilty settings to "Doom" or "Doom (Strict)" then the bridge will raise the correct amount after killing all the arachnotrons. If you've got a save at the start of the map, then replaying it with those compat settings should work and if not then just noclipping over to the island should solve the softlock.

 

I've added lift linedefs to the platform for the next version in order to prevent this, so thanks for reporting it.

Yeah, I came across this problem with the Woof! source port as well. It was on default complevel settings.

I'm playing this with my DBMB: Doom But More Build mod. Its been super fun so far and diggin the music.

 

Made it to Map04 so far on HMP. This wad is super fun and also a major heart racer! More updates to come.

 

Died on my hardcore run at Map04. Definitely dig this mapset for sure. I havent found a single part I didn't like!

Just died in Map 06 probably 3/4 through and I wanted to express my appreciation for using "Recapture", a vastly underused Icarus midi I'm not sure I've heard but once outside Icarus. And contrary to what someone said, this is definitely easier than Lunar Laceration. Maybe just develop the vanilla detailing just a little bit, but then, "High Street" actually has some really good Doomcute and "Habitat Research" flirts more with your traditional ruthlessness. I might play some more, but I might jump in on a stream soon, and plus, many maps have come out in the past couple of days, so urm, maybe 1 more.

Blue Door at the first level recreation in MAP11 doesn't actually need a blue key to open.1791560602_Woof!Screenshot2022_08.09-01_16_29_60.png.83e5868a4992015c88ccb6c48ae9177d.png

Small oversight I found

Here's v2 of the BETA, fixing all of the oversights mentioned here - notably Map07 should no longer softlock you if you're not playing in a vanilla compatible port (it'll look a bit odd, but you won't get stuck).

Thanks to everyone who's given the set a go already, I really appreciate it :)

I really really really like this combat of this mapset! It's definitely my cup of tea! It feels very Plutonia, but also fair imo. You can see the stream vid of my playing thru the whole thing here:

I look forward to your future endeavours!

Just finished watching the whole thing. Thanks for streaming the set - shame I was asleep while it was going on or I'd have popped in to say hello (bloody timezones!)

 

I'm glad you liked it :)

Had fun with it, well, most of it. The last 3 maps have huge jump in difficulty indeed! and kicked my teeth straight on. I think the skill curve feels more like Scythe 2. But that's probably cause I'm very bad at slaughter. The maps are pretty well done and I loved the little creative tidbits in the way the layouts are designed. Makes the gameplay flow smoothly!

This was a fun little episode! I have no bugs to report, managed to uv max every map. Shame the final level is IoS, never been a fan of those...
