Here is a vanilla Episode 1 replacement for Ultimate Doom.
It's called "Sons of Ares":

Here, I recorded demo( requires prboom+ 2.5.1.4) until e1m5, because I died and I had to end, because I recorded saveless demo. Well, I liked so far, but I don't think that maps must have 7-8 secrets, it's kinda tedious for me. Also, it's blind gameplay and I lost in some levels. I don't know if I finish record other maps, time will tell.

Just finished playing through. Have to say that I'm loving this map set. Simple, clean architecture that works well. The maps are good fun to play, the layouts spot on and don't requires hours of running round trying to find stuff.

 

Mega impressed with the visuals, reminds me that we don't need borders and detail everywhere (the ship was ace).

 

Regarding the secrets, it seems you have multiple sectors tagged as secret in some cases, which gives the illusion that the maps have many more secrets than it actually has, not really an issue thou IMO.

 

My only gripe.. Some areas are a tad dark, perhaps put a few more lamps here and there. 

 

Very good work!

@Liberation Thanks for spotting the mistakes with the secret sectors. This will go to idgames in the next day or so. Glad you enjoyed this and thanks for playing.

 

Episode 2 is tentatively planned for the 25th anniversary but I'm a lot slower mapper than Mr Peterson...

 

And with that I will stop bumping this thread ;) Thanks to everyone who played. Have a safe 2018 people.

This was pretty fun to play, expect some videos on my YouTube channel (see "About me" on profile) of it in the future.
