Doom Wad Station Wad Project

Well, A few boys over at doom wad station and me are working on a project. We need help - GFX artists, Music Composers, and im nto sure, but i think map editors. Here is what we have so far, including the story.

How about this idea? It's a thought for a prequel. There's familiarity in it but a few twists.

IN the year 5023, the UAC owns the monopoly in shipping and interplanetary import/export. The technology of Light Speed has been implemented and the shipping lanes are on fire with the UAC now looking into the possiblity of deep space exploration.

in 5030, the first deep space explorer ship, the INTREPID ventures out to NGC 200, a globular group in the Antares Sector (made that up too). They return six years later with a startling discovery. They have found the remanants of an alien civilization... with teleport technology.

The UAC, in its ambition to dominate all venues of transport, create their first functional teleport by using 'backward technology' on the Moon. They create a receiving teleport on the Earth in New Los Angeles. The initial test worked, but when the test subject materialized on Earth, it was at another location buried deep in the earth below La Brea Tar Pits. He was rescued, and a new ruins was found below the surface; a set of ruins resembling the Inca tribes in Mexico, but much more advanced, AND, they are just like the ruins found in the Antares Sector!

It is discovered that mankind has evolved from a mother race offworld, and that all civilization developed from a penal colony planted here on Earth via their teleport technology. The name of this mother race is the "Gigtites".

Further investigation reveals that the Gigtites were exterminated by a powerful archenemy called the 'Shaduuk' or 'Shadow Things'. They killed the Gigtites and stole their technology. The word 'shaduuk' later translates into 'realms of shadow' or'hell'.

By using the new technology, the UAC brings upon the Earth a chain of events that can be described only as Armageddon. The Shaduuk find our world and begin the invasion. many outposts and penal colonies on neighboring worlds have been obliterated. Earth is on the brink of total destruction. Many soldiers have been mustered and sent out to the infiltrated colonies in hopes to find and destroy the source for the Shaduuk threat. Now, a crack team of marines have been sent to New Los Angeles to enter the original teleport, (after the UAC managed to find a reverse frequency) in hopes of landing on the Shduuk home world.


Here are the maps we have finished currently.

Zell, before you start asking for help on your new mega-cool-and-whatnot project, make sure you have something to show first (screenshots, map downloads, etc). Keep in mind we've already seen thousands of upcoming projects that actually never got done.

sorry, I always wanted to do that.

The year 5030? That seems to be a bit distant to fit Doom unless you're making a TC. I would think that if we're still around that far in the future, weapons like shotguns and chainguns would be as obsolete as bronze axes and flint arrows are today. Unless, of course, our technology gets set back (or prevented from advancing in the first place), which the prospect of interstellar travel doesn't indicate.

But then, I suppose it's sci-fi... most people probably wouldn't care.

Why does everything set in the future happen at the turn of a millenium? What's wrong with 5451 or 5673? Why 5030? What about 2X06?!

It appears that Geocities' data transfer limit is reached halfway through downloading that file, meaning it's actually impossible to download an uncorrupted version :(

So it is max 6lines or less. And if it were me, I would remove until there were only the urls left, but it is up to you.
