Classic Levels

Recommended Posts

Yes, that's right. I'm looking for what you other Doomers would consider to be classic single player levels for Doom or Doom2. No megawads or episodes, just single (classic) levels for Doom or Doom2. Kthx.

The ones that stick in my mind most from the early years are:
wtrfront.wad (good atmosphere, some nice design features, and used the AV bug to interesting effect)
cic.wad (big, difficult and slowed my computer down - I've tried recording on it a few times, but missed jumps or missed monsters have always made it too ugly to release)
mines.wad (the one by Jim Flynn) - big, highly non-linear, lots of little nooks and crannies. That goes for most of Jim Flynn's other maps too.
rigel1.wad - tough and chaotic
trinity.wad (for novelty value, and innovative graphics, and the fact that I know Trinity College pretty well)

Laitos.wad - got it off of Dr. Sleep's site. Very good wad for Doom1. Massive level that prompts exploration, has good texture usage, balanced gameplay and classic E1 atmosphere.

Those are not single-level wads.

I presume you don't mean this.

No, sorry that's not it. The one I remember is e1m1-e1m9 and has a really shitty replacement sky.

Thanks for reminding me of this...

Indeed. It's one of my alltime favourites, too. There was a pre release around of it. So make sure you have the final version!
Also it uses a feature of Doom which was not used by the original maps and was unfortunately removed with the Ultimate Doom EXE and also is missed in the source code (unless someone has reimplemented it in his port or some form of scripting). In particular when the last Cyberdemon dies, sectors with tag 666 are lowered. The same thing as with the Barons of Hell, so that those sectors have to be triggered twice in that map.
AfaIk, that map also introduced the invisible stairs.
