Hexen hubs

Recommended Posts

Unlike Doom, there aren't enough Hexen WADs that match the quality of the original game. In fact, I don't think there's a single Hexen WAD that matches or surpasses Hexen in terms of size and quality.

There is chuxen.wad, a completely original 6-level Hexen hub, which is bigger and better than any hub in the original game.

I've never found anything better than that, though. I guess I'm asking... is there anything?

I remember playing chuxen when it first appeared in newstuff years ago. It was OK but I don't think the mapping quality itself was near the average quality of the original, though some of the layouts were decent.

Probably a dumb question, but you do have Deathkings of the Dark Citadel right? The first and third episode of that are quite nice. Second is OK but it's to gray as quake is to brown.

I had once started a single map for zdoom (or zhexen in this case) large enough to be a 4-level hub, but, you know how I am with getting things done.

How about Carnage Galore?

I might appreciate that one much more if it wasn't limited to a totally outdated engine my computer has problems with.

What I'd really like to see here is either an upgrade to something more recent or the source for the DLL so I can do it myself. ;) This is a WAD I wanted to play for some time now but it isn't fun if the game crashes quite frequently.

Yeah I could never get that WAD to run. Not that it was the WAD's fault; that engine was ridiculous. I remember editing the maps of the first and second episodes just to get them to run in normal Hexen. It took a while, but was relatively worth it. At least I could look around.
