  1. Uh, this isn't my creation. Just saying. But, that being said, This guy was one of the better mappers - at the time. And that's sort of the point here. You have to realize when these maps were created. Silent Zorah is still out there somewhere. Has a website still although I'm not sure he's maintaining it any more. But, I'm sure that he will be pleased that you played the maps. :-)
  2. So, bringing yet another blast from the past from 2003 - this is a 14 map replacement for Doom 2 called Villa De Rais - designed by Silent Zora. http://www.doomwadstation.net/rais/rais.html According to my review at the time, this was a pretty good setup. I hope you enjoy and comment on your experience playing this. From my original review in 2003: Level Design - rating: 10 There were some really neat tricks in this replacement like the slimefall in a washroom, an invisible bridge. The structuring was expertly made, no doubt. The fog/lighting effects were pretty snazzy too. I really liked how the author made good use of the two-toned textures in one of the maps. So in a nutshell, Rais is a must-see, must play kind of wad.
  3. So what did the people who played this think? Did you agree with my original assessment or did you have a different take?
  4. So, I've been attempting to bring out the dead (so to speak) and revive interest in older maps that many people in this generation have probably never played (but should). Cory was one of the best at the time. KS1 was just one of a series of excellent maps that he produced. I previously highlighted KS9 but thought this might be a good opportunity to bring this one out of the darkness of time and into the light of 2023. It's a hard map. You will NOT be bored (promise). Tons of monsters to fight in this one. :-) Part of my review from that map: Playability: I guess that depends on what you like. This map is HUGE with a capital H. There are tons of secrets, switches, lifts and surprises in this one. Expect the unexpected. Expect to spend some time trying to find out what a switch opened - or closed or lowered or raised or whatever. If you don't like maps like that then you aren't going to like this one. If you like a map that challenges you as much as the monsters do then you will LOVE this one. I absolutely went nuts for it - 2 hours on this map alone
  5. Here's a map from early May (May 1 to be exact) of 2014 called Occult Library. Blue Paladin's review was pretty decent and the pics look pretty nice. Check it out! http://www.doomwadstation.net/2014/vile_lib/
  6. Forsaken - a 23 year old wad that stands the test of time. http://www.doomwadstation.net/doom_reviews/forsaken.html Play it. Love it. :-)

    April 11, 2003. R.A.V.E

    Continuing with my wish to highlight wads from the past, here is one from 20 years ago (this month) called R.A.V.E) http://www.doomwadstation.net/rave/rave.html Created by Andy Leaver.
  8. Not nearly as active as I used to be but I'm still here.
  9. This one is full of 3d stuff and I only just realized it had turned 20 (in February). Honestly, the best port for this one is Risen3d as it renders beautifully. http://www.doomwadstation.net/bloodworks/bloodworks.html I hope you enjoy it. :-)

    An old map reimagined

    So, back in 2001 I entered a map in the E1 contest that was being judged by the great John Romero himself. To say that it was a lackluster attempt would be a discredit to how I feel about that original attempt now (of course, the tools were much cruder back then). Anyway, I pulled my map (Toblood.wad) out of the set and without changing the actual dimensions, etc... of the map, I reimagined it. "Could" it be better? Probably. Will I try to do any more? Probably not. I like the reimagined version much more. Let me know what you think. Play both on UV. Shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes each. Map e2m3 - idclev23. The first one is called (simply) Toblood.zip. The send one is toblood3.zip toblood.zip toblood3.zip
  11. Needless to say, based on the "9" there were previous iterations but I figured I could bring your collective attention to this most excellent map. I didn't see anything on the Doom Wiki about Cory but he was a very good mapper back in the day. Please take the time to take a look at this one and enjoy a 20 year old map that has definitely stood the test of time (Doom 2). http://www.doomwadstation.net/ks9/ks9.html
