WAD Realease - The UAC Rebellion

Recommended Posts

I released this wad a few months ago on some other Doom forums, and I figured it would be wrong not to post it here too :D.

The UAC Rebellion



The Story - "You are a normal marine, no more important than the rest. You've worked at the UAC for years now, and have had time to learn about what all of their funds go to. They research inter-dimensional travel and genetic alterations.
However, the UAC, as you have recently learned, is corrupt. They let it be known that experiments are only done on willing individuals, but that isn't true: one of your fellows was reported as "mysteriously missing" and never found again. One night, at your workstation, you decide that these corrupt bastards are going down. It's going to be a tough fight, but you have to kill a few to save many."
(It's just a doom wad story. don't mind the millions of plot holes =p)

There are some new monsters in this wad to go along with the 'storyline', including:

Guard Dogs
Marines (Pistol, Shotgun, chaingun, Plasma)
Zombies (Rifle, Rocket Launcher, chaingun)
New Hellspawn (The Virtualdemon, Toxic Caco's, Hell Knights, and altered lost souls)

and without further ado, screenshots!






*Marines will almost never stand in nukage or lava, only zombies. Which makes sense.

You shouldn't upload other peoples' wads to the archives without their express permission.

The person above said that someone should upload it! Also, I have done this MANY times before. If they care, they simply send in a note and the wad gets removed. No harm done; no big deal.

If you are really strongly against it, you can either ask for express permission or upload a note to Ty explaining what you object to. I, however, will not be available to see what is going on for roughly the next 15-17 hours. (I have to sleep and then I've got lots of personal business).

EDIT: Note that Creaphis is right: Distribution is allowed in the text file. So now I really see no problem.

...On a completely unrelated note, these levels are actually pretty fun.

Only on map03 so far but this is really good fun. It's pretty much exactly the kind of mod I like to play.

There is a minor problem though. Sometimes when you gib one of your marine enemies, an error message is printed to the screen.

"Jump target 'AltSkinXDeath' not found in ShotgunGuy"

There is also this error message at the console when you start up.

"Invalid data encountered for texture uacrbln.zip:UACrebellion.wad:TEXTURE1"

Both of these errors occur with the latest Zdoom and GZdoom.

It would have been common courtesty to let Doomkid92 upload it himself, as its HIS PROJECT.

If someone doesn't upload their own wad(s), I will quite often upload it myself, as long as permission to distribute is granted.

I'm on the sixth map now and this really is pretty fun. Of course it isn't a new Scythe 2 or something, but the maps are solid, pure fun. Especially map05 was great...it's interesting to see how Doom "works" when most of the enemies are tougher hitscanners.

Thanks for the good feedback :D

Yeah, there are a few small bugs I have seen, but thankfully there isn't anything that gets in the way of it being played.

I got to about Map09 or Map10 earlier when I had to go somewhere, so I haven't finished it entirely yet. But I'll tell you one thing, these maps were fun as Hell. Seriously, I had such a great time blasting through them. I have, however, developed a new found hatred for hitscanners. ;)

A very fun wad, the appearence of the rocket zombies have in MAP02 have gotten on my nerves as there appears to be no way to not get damaged by them in the narrow corridors, when it takes three close range shotgun blasts to down them, but that is my only complaint so far.

Not bad but there's a few things that bothered me:

1. Nearly all doors go straight to the ceiling of the neighboring sectors which looks a bit odd. Having a small sector between the door and the corridors/rooms they connect normally looks much better.

2. Apparently the Lost Souls were set to clear the COUNTKILL flag. As a result they don't work 100% correctly in ZDoom because this flag defines proper monster behavior. Originally Lost Souls didn't have this flag because Doom2.exe does not have a working monster counter and for some reason this got transferred here. It's most noticable when using the 'kill monsters' cheat because they won't get killed.

(BTW, it's a bit odd to see a DEHACKED based mod that appears to be designed for ZDoom. I haven't encountered one of these in a long time... ;))

Brandon: Are you incapable of going out on a limb to play wads that look interesting to you? Do you really need the input of some vague (and frequently protested) voting feature on the archive to determine if a wad is enjoyable to you? I doubt that a public rating system is a valid method of determining a wad's merits.

Doomkid: Nice project! I left you some of my comments on the ZDaemon forums a while ago. This is a nice change up from most common Doom wads. The whole thing has a nice flavor with the evil marines. I like the "realistic" bits depicted in the large variety of UAC bases. I recommend that folks play this one!

Hmm, wasn't there a wad somewhere in this thread? Oh yeah, I played the first 3 maps or so and quite like it, fun unique and not too easy imo. I like how some of the hitscanners have high pitched sounds like smurfs or something. Will play the rest later.

*grabs a shovel*

Found it!!

I gotta say, this is very enjoyable stuff. I haven't finished it yet, but that will come. If I had to pick one quality that draws me to a mapset, it is 'immersion' and this mapset just oozes atmosphere. Perhaps some of the texturing and architecture could have been done better, but I will forgive an awful lot if a wad really draws me into its little universe. And these levels have done a pretty good job of that.

nice work. MOAR!!

Jesus fuck, can a mod please flush the off-topic bullshit down the toilet?

Anyway, I tried this map out and it's pretty cool. The amount of hitscan guys keeps you on your toes. The marines had the problem that I find with a lot of these mods, though, and that's that they seem like regular zombies. They lumber around slowly and randomly, infighting occurs, etc.

The sound effects used for the marines were not very good. Some of them grunt like zombies. Some of them have no alert sounds. Some of them grunt like the marine when he's in pain. It's just out of place. I'd reccomend using the guard sound effects from Strife. In fact, Strife has some other cool stuff for a mod like this (Big mechanical walkers, etc).

This map actually gives me an idea for storming a UAC base that would be somewhat realistic, meaning the marines would not wander around like zombies. They would attempt to ambush you (Think lights go out, marines storm the room kind of thing). Also, they would move significantly faster than the slowpoke zombies.

Yeah, I will do the doors a bit differently next time, and I have no idea why i changed the flags for the soul in the first place :p. Thanks for the advice

I'll improve on the alignment and such in my future wad projects. (and yes, there will be future projects)

Thank you all for your feedback! I didn't see the mentioned 'garbage' posts but thanks indeed for removing it.
