Thank you for taking the time to not only play Episode 1 but to also give a new take on some things that someone who has played all the original Doom games on Ultra Violence without dieing once would have a tougher time noticing.
E1M1: I kinda took the Id software pill when making the first level for any of my wads and make them short and not really that hard.
E1M2: Is actually a mix of two earlier maps from before the release of episode 1 and I've thought about just scraping the whole level If It weren't for some areas that I liked.
E1M3: the area with the yellow key wasn't meant to be a dick move, I've seen a video where some people for the life of them can't figure out you are supposed to run though the small steel door and hit the switch as fast as you can closing a bar so the monsters can't get you, Imp fireballs and zombieboi bullets can still hit you. You are meant to stay In that little room and mow them down with your chaingun until you can hit one of the other door switches and leave safely.
E1M4: Yea I was planning on the player playing the whole mapset on Ultra violence so I think I will get on making a easier version, But when I do my runs I always mow them down with the Chaingun mmmm.. all this grinded meat makes me hungry.
E1M5: Again like I said for map 4 I probably need to make a easier mode because I base there off of how I play and I usually get worried that I make It too easy. The Plasmagun was originally the BFG In that spot and you would get the Plasmagun In E1M3 through a secret.
E1M6: This map always felt cozy to me because of the music.
E1M7: That map was kinda hard to put together for It to work right because of all the different paths. I'm glad you saw no problems with it.
E1M8: Yea for some reason I completely missed that Hangar 2 room door every time I played through that map.I've seen others go through that problem too so I will fix It asap. Yea the final room was supposed to be a loose recreation of the box art where you can see the river styx.
Episode 2 Is alot harder just a fair warning.
