With the "status" seemingly being more popular than "blogs" I've always found Doomworld user openness kind of strange, ie people posting pics of themselves and being forward with who they are. Do that at zandronum and this is what you get
In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the worst air crash in history, here are a few pictures taken at the memorial in La Laguna, Tenerife, two weeks ago.
The airport and Teide are visible in the background.
The airport tower and runway can be seen behind the base of the memorial.
The layout of the runway and taxiways hasn't changed much. When my flight left a few days later, I recognized the point where we took off as being pretty much exactly the same as the point of impact in 1977.
THhs is a nice map that includes both a nice layout for deathmatch and a good challenge on Single Player, even some parts are hard to see if you don't check the automap closer... also there's some secret sectors that i don't get it, since they're not really that secret
A pretty decent wad but not without some serious flaws
- High detail maps
- A lot of map variety
- Long playtime
- Good variety of difficulty
- Unreal Tournament Music
- A lot of extremely brainless/spammy monster placement ( tiny rooms packed with so many monsters you HAVE to save scum )
- too many obvious traps, every item you pick up and every button you press seems to cause loads of enemies to teleport around you, a lot of levels became too predictable and repetitive because of this
- Some bad music choices ( this is mostly a matter of opinion ) a lot of tracks sounded too upbeat for Doom, a lot of these tracks sound like they were taken from an 80's workout vhs
As for a megawad that was made in fewer days than it has levels - this is quite good. As for a megawad in general - well, that's a different story. It's very apparent that the maps precisely follow the author's visions and this leaves nothing to complain about. The problem is the one that affects many other Doom 1 WADs: the tedium. E3 is the best at avoiding it here and therefore the best in overall, but E1 and E2 leave you pumping monsters with puny weapons. You will get a rocket launcher and a plasma rifle, but there's very little ammo. Thus, the enjoyment is mixed and the overall score is average.
