Description: This is my second WAD. It is set in MegaTox, a toxin factory. The new graphics consist of a polluted, radioactive sky, two new wall textures, a floor texture which bears a striking resemblance to one of the original wall patches, and a subtly (!) altered pallette that adds a green haze which hangs over the factory. I also wrote a new song for this level--don't complain if the timing isn't perfect; the keyboard isn't my main instrument, and I don't have any fancy sequencing equipment. Email me and let me know what you think of this WAD. Try to avoid slipping into the toxic acid! . . . . But you will, eventually . . . .
Credits: id Software, the creators of all of the editors listed below, and Packard Bell for providing the image on which I based the new sky texture and for making my computer. :)
Base: New level from scratch
Build time: 50+ hours

Bugs: Minor HOM if you make a big splash when you jump into the pools of acid.

It has weak gameplay but unusual atmosphere and some interesting ideas (I like the way you go up to the red key). Kind of cool.x
A decent wad from the old days that's sort of a demo of a few mapping tricks. It also has a custom green fog that's a little awkward in modern sourceports, but still cool nonetheless. The only problem is that it's way too easy. Play it for the atmosphere, not the challenge. 4/5x
This is from May 1996. It has a nice green psychedelic sky. There's a custom colourmap that doesn't work in GZDoom by default. The bit with the blue key is fiddly (there are two switches), but this is a fun short level that looks decent even today, in a simple way. It gets mazey when you enter the plant, although there's a clever multi-story bit. The boss battle has four barons, but you have enough plasma to down four cyberdemons.x
Good map with a great green effect! (guess why I started using it...)x
This is reasonably good. The green fog gives the map a unique feel.x
