Why don't I have a custom title by now!?
What is Switcheroom 2
A sequel to Switcheroom. Goal is the same - recreate original id maps in a different thematical style, to provide an interesting experience - you'll relive the originals in a new, unexpected way. But for a change, Switcheroom 2 focuses on Doom 2 maps instead of D1 ones.
The project aims to be vanilla compatible.
The megawad was in slow progress for a year and a half. Now, finally, we have enough decent maps to compile a full 32-map alpha release. Testing phase starts now.

Anybody feel free to play through the alpha, share observations, report bugs and suggest improvements of any kind. I will appreciate it! The project is still on a way to improve - particular maps can be improved, reworked, or replaced if needed. However, I will let the tuning-up work on respective authors themselves. I don't plan to do changes to anyone's maps against his will. Once things get moving, I will try to keep contact with the authors about it.
Even though I asked them, some mappers didn't give a name to their maps. To be honest, I also don't like many of the current generic names. I don't plan to change any existing map names against the author's will, but we've yet got to discuss it, and I'm accepting suggestions for map names from anybody. Specially for the maps that don't have a name yet.
Map order changes
During development of the project, each map had to be claimed for a certain map slot. However, the only goal was to recreate a general theme (Base or City or Hell or Nazi). Not all mappers followed it, but anyway, the maps can be shifted now. The general order Base -> City -> Hell (with Nazi secret maps) should stay the same. But I'd be willing to change map order within each episode according to their difficulty and complexity, for the sake of improved continuous playthrough.
I want input from playtesters, participants and possibly anybody else about this idea, or suggestions for particulars map orders.
