Description: Since this was my first level, it contains a bit of everything. Traps, a few constructions, I came up with and experiments with light levels and effects. Thus, it is quite linear and therefore probably not very suited for deathmatch. But I haven't tried so far... Well, I don't like the level anymore, after playing it over and over again, so it is time to release it. Hope you enjoy it!

Base: New level from scratch
Build time:
Editor(s) used: DEU 5.21, BSP 1.1x, DMGRAPH 1.0
Bugs: There's a door, that will get stuck, if you try to open it, before it is completely closed. It will start moving again, if you IDSPSIPOPD through it. But since none of my Test-Players (thanks) ever encountered that, I hope it won't be that bad. There was something else, but I can't recall right now. Just write me a letterbomb via email if you find the level too annoying :-)

Sui Generis
This is a fairly good wad. I agree the earlier parts are weak; they’re bland, narrow and corridors-y, but they’re brief and once you reach the blue key it starts to pick up. The level is a pair of tech/stone buildings facing across a bridged moat. Height variation is used well and makes the secrets more interesting. There's plenty of low-level monsters and a couple of neat traps. Excluding a short marbface staircase it looks ok too, & the new textures aren’t too shabby. Better than average for early 95x
Cool wad. Nice new textures, interesting designs, clever secrets and good use of moving floors.x
The readme looks like a gravestone inscription, but the level is pretty good. It starts off poorly, although there are some nice traps, but then turns into a castle/techbase level (with a moat). The second part is fun, especially for late 1994, with some clever secrets and some nice design (the "reactor core" section was decent). It isn't very big though, but there are lots of monsters and close-in fighting.x
