The Lost Levels Phase 1 Version 1.0.2b RELEASED!

Recommended Posts

Hey! V0idH0und here with a new mod and blah blah blah... get it here: http://www.moddb.com/games/freedoom/addons/the-lost-levels-phase-1

 

Title                   : The Lost Levels Phase 1
Filename                : The_Lost_Levels_Phase_1_1.0.2b.wad
Author                  : V0idH0und
Misc. Author Info       : I'm a person
Description             : Hey! V0idH0und here with a cool new mod for you,
                         The Lost Levels (Phase 1) includes all levels that were removed
                         from FreeDoom in the past, all levels were extracted from those old
                         versions and are not edited in any way except if the edit was needed
                         to make the map playable, The mod shows up as a new episode
                         on the episode selection screen, all levels include their original music
                         and sky boxes, if I forgot a level, or if a level has incorrect music or
                         an incorrect sky box, tell me in the comments below! and Thank you so much
                         for looking at this mod!


Installation            : Load this mod as you normally would load
                          any .wad it has it's own custom episode number so it should not conflict with
                          any mods that add new episodes.    

Additional Credits to   :The Freedoom Project and its contributors,
                         They are the ones who made the music and textures and levels, all I did was extract
                         them so you could use them with newer versions.

             Id Software for making the games Doom and DoomII.

                         Spectra on Doomworld for all of the fixes in Version 1.0.2b

You skipped the old E1M8 level from 0.8.

 

Proper skies for the maps:

TLL2 E3 sky instead of E1 sky.

TLL3 This instead of E2 sky.

TLL4 The linked sky instead of E3 sky.

 

Do you plan to do this with the old Phase 2 maps?

Thanks for letting me know about the level and the sky boxes, I'll add that level in very soon! and yes! once this mod is close to complete I plan on doing a Lost Levels Phase 2.

Is this the level I missed?

Yes.

It's already in the test version of the mod, I just have to test the levels and make sure they have the correct sky boxes, and then the download will be updated. :)

When you updated the OP, you deleted the download link.

 

Dude, slow down. Take a breath. It'll all work out.

 

now that I got the basics done, I can slow down and only update it every now and then, I'm going so fast because I have a huge amount of stuff I made and never uploaded, and I'm the type of person where if I want to share something with the community, I do it as soon as I can, a big reason why I made this mod is because those maps where made by people who worked hard to make something cool, and I think the maps deserve a little more attention then what they got. :)

The next update might be in a week or 2, Nothing big, also does anyone know who created these lost levels and contributed them to the Freedoom project? I would like to credit them individually instead of just having "The Freedoom Project and its contributors" in the credits.

Hey everyone! I was looking through my files on my PC, and I found almost EVERY SINGLE VERSION OF FREEDOOM EVER RELEASED! do you know what this means? I can include almost every level ever removed from the game in The Lost Levels mod! this has now became a big project, and it will take a good while before it's finished, but I can tell you this, the next update (which I have no release date for) will be HUGE! I hope you will be here for the long haul, because it will be worth it!

Are most of those truly worth looking at though? some maps were swapped out because they weren't great.

I wonder if there's an interest in arranging an episode of old maps and trying to re-do them from scratch instead.

@YukiHerz any maps that weren't that great I'm improving, I have big plans for the old E4M2 in the mod... :) but any that are complete garbage I'm just going to not include, the point of this mod is to not only include the old (Good) maps, but also improve any that need it (including maps that have potential to be great with a little modification).

I need to halt progress on the mod for a little bit, I just found out someone in my family has cancer, I have lost so many people I love to cancer, I'm sorry.

Ouch! Sorry to hear that. No need to apologise there; real life takes clearly takes precedence.

 

If I have one suggestion to make about this mod, though, it is that this thread should be moved to the Freedoom forum. 

 

Maybe a moderator can take care of that in your absence.

That sounds good, I'll contact a moderator or admin about that, and thanks, :) I'll still be on sometimes, but a lot is happening and I won't be on a lot.

So sorry to hear about this. Take care of yourself and do what you need for your family.

 

I'll definitely be giving this a download as-is, at the very least; I played through the previous Phase 1 release and really enjoyed it, and was worried when I heard some maps were getting dropped/replaced. This is a worthwhile project, for sure.

Thank you, and after a while, once everything calms down a bit, I will be working on it again, I also have plans for phase 2... :) but that will be after everything that's going on right now calms down. (Hopefully everything will work out)
