    Memorable Mapnames

    Shipping / Respawning - most random mapname in the Iwads The final frontier Rainbow Bridge - no obvious rainbow or bridge in this level, but still feels like a legit name for this gigantic colourful castle Rattamahatta - sounds really cool and memorable + one of those levels that does nonlinearity really well Nectar of the Gods Dreamscape + those cool alliterations in Alien Vendetta: Rusty Rage, Toxic Touch, Overwhelming Odds, Killer Colours, Dark Dome ...

    Best hell map looking

    The two "secret" levels in E3 from No End In Sight. E3M5 has that weird, threatening, abstract atmosphere, and E3M6 has excellent hellish visuals.

    Specific things you really like in WADs

    I really like the text file included with Deus Vult 2, which includes elaborate explanations about the levels, lots of random stuff and doom wisdoms like "windows are multiplicators of detail".
  4. One way to give continuous players and pistol starters a different experience, is to drop the "provide only ammo for weapons availiable in the map" rule that most mappers adhere to. For instance, if map 8 has a (secret) BFG, map 9 could be a map with a challenging Cyberdemon, where you get a rocket launcher but no BFG (for pistol starters) but still have some cell ammo (for continuous players). That way both types of players get the experience they prefer: continuous players are rewarderd for their carry-overs, while pistol-started receive a slightly more challenging "each map as its own adventure" experience. The way I see it, that's how the IWADS were built: the rocket launcher in MAP01 or the BFG in E3M3 are useless within those levels, but come in handy in the following levels, rewarding exploration throughout levels, instead of only within them. Off course, in that case mappers should make it clear in the .txt file that this is how it works in their wad, to avoid having pistol-starters wasting time searching for weapons which simply aren't provided in the map.

    Whispers of Satan

    The first 15 levels are mediocre, but the second half of the wad is excellent! Maps 25-30 are some of the best hell levels I have ever played.
