Let's name Freedoom's levels!

Now that level names are autogenerated, it's trivial for us to change the names of Freedoom's levels. Let's come up with proper names for the levels instead of the current boring "MAP01" / "E1M1" names.

Rules:

  • You can suggest as many level names as you want.
  • If you're the author of a level, you get to decide the name.
  • Don't base your names on Doom's level names. We are not recreating Doom.
  • Please play through the level before deciding on a name.
  • As suggestions come in, I will add them to the list below. The person who came up with the name is listed in square brackets. If there's an asterisk, the author of the level named it.
  • If multiple people give conflicting suggestions then I'll choose one based on popular opinion or my own taste.

So I used the version on the official website, I hope that's the right one.

E1M1: Starport
E1M2: Communications Center
E1M3: Waste Disposal
E1M4: Supply Depot
E1M5: Control Center
E1M6: Enlisted Quarters
E1M7: Research Labs
E1M8: Quarry
E1M9: Armory

E2M1: Ruins
E2M2: Power Plant (I know we can't use similar names but this map makes me think of a powerplant)
E2M3: ???
E2M4: I have no clue what to call this
E2M5: ???
E2M6: ???
E2M7: ???
E2M8: Containment Chamber
E2M9: ???

E3M1: Land of the Lost
E3M2: Infernal Caverns
E3M3: ???
E3M4: ???
E3M5: ???
E3M6: Not sure
E3M7: ???
E3M8: The Lair?
E3M9: ???

I say all of the levels should be movie quotes. One could be "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of Elderberries!"

Edit: I fart in your general direction shall be E1M1

An okay start, although I've left out "Enlisted Quarters" which was one of the original level names from the Doom Bible.

E1M7 looks more like a waste disposal center than E1M3 does and I don't get a "control center" vibe from E1M5.

I made up some names of my own for the ones you left out. We also need names for the episodes.

:P i liked how E2M5 is called Fortress 31, how you got that name? sounds pretty nice for me.

As it's your level, I'm glad you like it! I was just wandering around it and it reminded me of a castle or fortress, except one made by a modern, advanced military. Calling it just "Fortress" seemed boring so I was thinking along the lines of "[adjective] Fortress" but couldn't think of a good adjective to use. A fortress like these is probably just one of many, so I added a number to the end instead.

Just to be awkward I'm not keen on level names with the word "Centre" in because of the fact that you don't seem able to spell it correctly! :)

Neither of the two spellings is right or wrong really. Here in the states we switch the E and R around, much like how we take the U out of colour, etc.

I've learned to go with the American spelling for most things just for consistency.

I've added a new name for E1M6, just so we have a full set of level names for episode 1.

I've committed the current level names to the Git repository, and also added some intermission screen text in case anyone is interested.

Thanks, I will try to incorporate these new names soon.

One thing we haven't discussed yet is names for the Phase 1 episodes. The episode selection screen looks kind of weird (episode 1, 2, 3, double impact) so it would be good to have some suggestions for names for episodes 1-3.

Just some ideas for Phase names.

-Nightmare at the AGM Outpost (presumably E1 or 2)
-Nightmare at AGM (presumably E1 or 2)
-Outbreak at AGM (presumably E1 or 2)
-Outbreak at the AGM Outpost (presumably E1 or 2)
-the Event Horizon (presumably E3)
-the Palaces of Hell (presumably E3)
-the Nether Dimension (presumably E2 or 3)
-the Overthrown Complex (presumably E2)
-the Military Labs (presumably E2)
-Beyond the Demongate (presumably E3)

I'm having a difficult time coming up with any great names right now, but here are some ideas to consider for now.

double impact


I even think that "double impact" does not fit as an episode title at all. IIRC it reflects the fact the the whole epidode was made by two people in team-work, but doesn't actually say anything about its content or conception.

Here are a couple more potential names for the Freedoom2 series.

HUSTR_17 = the Capitol [Voltcom9]
HUSTR_18 = Abandoned Monastery [Voltcom9]
HUSTR_20 = the Blood Ember Fortress [Voltcom9]
HUSTR_21 = the Under Realm [Voltcom9]

These aren't bad. The names need to be quite concise to fit on the screen. How about:

E1: Outpost Outbreak
E2: Military Labs
E3: Event Horizon

Aah, shizz! I still need to develop my MAP30 replacement! D:


Also, I really like The Nether Dimension.

EDIT: Oh dear. I just got the latest version and saw the new MAP01.

How about Hydroelectric Plant? It looks like a sort of advanced dam to me.

I've added this as part of 7356fe4. Looks much nicer to have actual names on the screen :)
