Yo man, this is something I'm gonna try to do more often - give you a heads up on upcoming Max Doom levels.
I see you've got some wadpaks that have a bunch of stuff you've already played - like I've said you can skip DOOM142 as it's just the first three episodes of Doom I converted. There's also the DOOMPL series -
DOOMPL12.wad maps -
1 - AMBUSH.wad
2 - E1M1 remake
3 - E3M1 remake (and was also E1L1RQ.wad)
4 - E2M1 remake
5 - ATLNTS12.wad
6 - forget the name of this one, but you would've played this one before in a wadpak
7 - A crappy dark slaught map (you'll probably recognize it)
1 - STONES.wad
2 - I think you've played this one...?? (sorry to be unsure)
3 - NOPANIC2.wad - Don't know if you've already played it, but it's in the D2 folder
4 - Not sure, but it's tiny
5 - Your favorite, WARHOUSE.wad :-)
6 - E1M2 remake
7 - E1M5 remake
8 - E1M6 remake
1 - E2M1 remake
2 - E2M1 remake (....yeah)
3 - THIS one looks new
4 - And this one
5 - And this one
6 - E1M2 remake
7 - CASTLE.wad
8 - E1M1 remake
So this might help you blast through these wads when you get to them. I'll keep an eye out in the future for other potentially redundant wads you'll be up against.

Not much of a story, I was just addicted to it for quite a while - I remember when the Master Levels first came out, and I couldn't believe it had 3,000 levels as bonus content for it (I seriously thought it was a typo, it could only be 300 right?) Then around 2013-ish, after getting deeply back into Doom and playing the hell out of Doom I, II, Final Doom and Momento Mori I just had to get it and check it out. And that's when the thing pulled me in - it's such a fascinating and bizarre collection, it has so many maps from the very beginning of Doom community mapping, you truly begin to feel like a Doom historian going through it.
It's got lots of classic maps, but there's TONS of crap - amateur my-first-wad maps, slaught-a-thons, broken maps, and of course loads of IWAD remakes and duplicates. I started scouring the net for more info, discovering Youtube channels and videos of playthroughs, going through the Wad archive and the /idgames archive, I did ragequit and vow never to play any again more than once, but would get sucked back in, I'd be like "well, there's only 800 more wads to check out".
And then, just as I'm getting away from all that and playing actual quality Doom stuff from that era (Icarus, Requiem) this dude named Kes comes along and fires up my OCD once again, and I'm right back to where I was.... back down the rabbit hole I go...
I feel like this is the part where I should refuse to take responsibility for that... but I'm not going to.
