The /newstuff Chronicles #416

Recommended Posts

It's just old versions of historical wads being removed, not much of a big deal since better versions of those wads still exist. The worst part about this is the reviews of those versions fading away in history.

"Better" is subjective. Sometimes it's nice to check out the original version of something. For example, it made me very happy to play Green Water, a prior version of Dark Covenant's MAP02, which was recently uploaded to /idgames. It has a medusa bug in one place, and wasn't as polished as the version in DC, but I'm still thankful for having the opportunity to experience it (I'm a BIG fan of DC, it's one of my top-10 Doom II wads).

A very good point, hex11. More good examples of this would be the different versions of John Anderson's "Dante's Gate" and "Crossing Acheron" maps. It's very interesting to see how such a mapper's work evolved from one version to the next. New and experienced mappers alike could learn something from such examples.
