5-level hub, set in a variety of environments. You start in a command center, but explore medieval and techno-medieval areas as you uncover the secrets of the Temple of the Ancients.
These levels extensively use Q3A textures, and a few Q1 & Q2 textures. They also feature cool new skies, and scripting. ZDooM features include translucency, laser barriers, underwater environments, true elevators, colored lighting, fog, slippery surfaces (ice), quakes, 3D bridges, etc.
Notes: I take credit/flames for many of the runic signs. The original Q1Tex.wad contained 32*32 signs. Using these in MS Paint, I edited the symbols to create new, larger signs. The new animated water flats plus the additional ice/water flat are all mine.

These aren't true bugs, but they are anomalies. When underwater (or under lava), the grate textures do not appear colored, as do the rest of the textures. This probably has something to do with them having transparent sections.
