this week in doom

 

 

     So, Unlike last week, where there was only ONE lonely map uploaded to the archives, this week we have a veritable smorgasbord of delectable options available to us. There were a few regular single player wads as well as a bunch of deathmatch stuff and, as a bonus there were three megawads - two of them deathmatch megawads. There are also a bunch of other updates from around the DOOM community, so without further ado, let us begin (as always) with the new maps on the archives then move on to some of the news from around the world of Doom and then on to youtube videos of game play that people have posted this week.

 

P.S. All of these maps are direct linked in my personal back up of the archives along with GOD KNOWS how many others for Doom, Doom2, Doom3, ROE, Wolfenstein 3D, Castle Wolfenstein, Duke 3d, Strife, Hexen, Heretic and more here

Also, because of the sheer volume, I was not able to play any of these maps, but I did get some screenies for you.....

=============================================================================

 

     So, first, let me start with the single player maps....

 

Brutalist Doom

Description : Brutalist Doom is a WAD that retextures Doom to a
have a Brutalist architecture.

 

Doom II Alternative Story *

Following your defeat of the Spider Mastermind, you step through a doorway and
emerge from hell to see the green fields of Earth!

Or at least, they were green fields, once. Three years have passed since you
were shipped off to the Martian moon bases, and in that time, Earth has been
undergoing its second industrial revolution. Under the banner of progress,
the almighty Union Aerospace Corporation has poisoned the atmosphere with
pollution and covered the Earth in an endless concrete jungle.

A nearby pool of blood (there are no rabbits any more) reveals that you're not
the only one who came through the portal. The demons have already come
through before you and begun their invasion of Earth en masse. Facing
overwhelming odds, your outlook is bleak, but it's a bleakness tempered by the
knowledge that the UAC has already ruined the planet anyway. Even if you do
manage save Earth, it might not even have been worth saving.

 

Screenie from map 15, Doom2 (I believe)

 

download link   The text file

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inadequate

Description : behold the wild misadventures of a first time
mapper! watch as the struggle to understand
basic design becomes real! witness the learning
process from map1 to map2! be embarrassed by
everything!

 

Alright then! I think that says it  all. lol And the screenie shows the rest

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arachnides

 

one level for zdoom gzdoom very hard very dark many secrets

 

I guess you might as well go check it out then!

 

This one at least LOOKS like it will be interesting!

 

download link

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bricky

 

Description : That's a map I made in 2013, not sure about when,
I think it was in august, only my brother and
darkwave played this map

Also:

Known Bugs : Just missing textures because I mapped it like a
real jackass and it's a f*ckin' mess to see from
DB2

 

Based on that description I don't think I'd wast MY  time on it but here  you go....

 

 

download link

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lurking Evil

 

Description : You find yourself in a hostile environment, deal
with it.

 

Well, that pretty much describes Doom, so doesn't really tell you much. Only one way to find out....

 

That first picture (comes up when you load the wad) doesn't really say "Lurking Evil" to me, unless the author is making a statement. hmmmmmmmm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GZDoom Speedmapping Session #1

Description : I set out to make a megawad in under one hour.
This is the result.

 

So, as you might have guessed, this is the lone non - deathmatch megawad uploaded to the archives this week. Since it was done in under an hour, I can't imagine that there is much there to impress.... Had to see....

 

    

 

download link

=======================================================================================

So, now we get to the deathmatch maps of which there are 4.

 

Bucket DM 2 - The first of two megawads in the deathmatch section this week

 

Description : BUCKETDM2 is the sequel to the "popular" DM
megawad, BUCKETDM. 32 small-to-medium levels
guaranteed* to provide hours** of competitive
enjoyment***. This installment includes redesigns
of many previous maps, as well as brand new
creations. Also included are 35 new music tracks!

 

I can't say as I'm a fan of multiplayer - I've always enjoyed SP,  myself - but when you have 32 maps to choose from in DM, it HAS to be a good time.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fast DM

 

Description : FastDM is a fast paced, 33 level deathmatch
megawad.

NOTE: this dm pack contains a dehacked/bex patch which does the following things:

1. Makes the pistol shoot two puffs per shot and increases its rate of fire
2. Makes certain monsters too tall to get out of the cage in MAP30
3. Dramatically lowers the health of some monsters (for MAP30)

All maps made by 75 AKA jwaffe.

Maps: MAP01-MAP33

PK3 format is temporary, the final release will be wad format
for compatibility with odamex

- The maps are made for jumping, though should work without it too.
- Crouch is not needed or recommended
- The maps are hexen format
- Some maps contain thing bridges (i.e., things with z height)
- Do NOT run these maps with infinite thing height / plasma bump bug enabled.

 

Again, not much of a DM player but here's another megawad designed to give you hours of DM pain and pleasure. If that's what your "thang" is, I'd give it a go....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

gruDM

 

Description : This is an accumulation of deathmatch levels I
have made. There is no set theme. Some are parts
of coop levels in progress, some are just spaces
I created for the purpose.

A Duel
- Duel map shaped like an A with a bridge.

X Duel
- X shaped duel map..

Octagon Duel
- Octagon shaped duel map (imaginative, huh!)

Pentagram Deathmatch
- A Deathmatch map with a sequence of six
switches, which unlock a two switch
combination, giving access to larger guns
and more play area.

Tank Deathmatch
- A small base with two tanks in a large room.
In one tank is a rocket launcher, the other,
a plasma gun. Using the computers in the
rooms will drain the tanks, trapping anyone
caught inside for 30 seconds..

 

Not much else to say, really..... Enjoy!

Just As Christ Teaches, Orange Rules You

 

Description : Duel map originally meant for a cyber-duel, but
quickly realized it's potential for multiplayer.
First ever duel map! And /idgames upload :o

Music is altazimuth.mid by myself

doesn't run in prboom for unknown reasons but
it's designed for zandro so i'm not too bothered.

 

Deathmatch has been busy this week so....Have at - what are you waiting for?

 

download link

======================================================================================

As previously mentioned, it's been a busy week in the world of DOOM and I want to pass on everything I can so here we go.....

 

Our first stop takes us to Wads in Progress where we find an update on a project called

"Techbase"

 

Description:

Another WIP. The name is even a WIP. This is what you get when you combine Drum and Bass music,
Doombuilder 2, my creativity, and a couple cans of Monster Energy, basically
.

=======================================================================================

Mod Database brings us our next two entries into the TWID Chronicles this week - both projects for  Doom 3.

 

First up:

Chaos(v0.1)test
Here is the new start completely replacing my once again miserably failed modification run
pertaining unto the good old Knee-Deep-In-The-Dead episode one deal from a long times ago ... .
Download link

and

Doom 3 ROE Absolute HD 1.1
This is basically Absolute HD that has been modded to work correct with Resurrection of Evil
Changelog:
Version 1.1:

Updated to Sikkmod 1.2
Included Doom3 Demon Expansion Pack by (Revility)
Included Full Shadows for ROE by (Dafama2K7)
Fixed issues with textures not appearing or being transparent
Fixed monsters having insane amounts of health
Added a default.cfg to include optimized settings
Fixed SSG causing console errors
SSG now has the proper effects when bullets hit walls
Download link

 

Neither of these is actually on Doom Wad Station (yet) but will be shortly. :-)

=======================================================================

 

over at One Man Blogspot they reviewed a map called "Quadruple Threat"

 

Quadruple Threat (QTHREAT.WAD)
QUADRUPLE THREAT
(by Eric Baker aka "The Green Herring",
Jon Vail aka "40oz",
"Super" Jamie Bainbridge,
and Joonas Aijala aka "Jodwin")
Don't touch that dial! Yes, this level has four authors. Quadruple Threat was an exercise in
collaborative speedmapping, which is to say that each contributor made a section of the map in
roughly 100 minutes, after which the pieces were sown together
 

Screenie:

 

Gotta say - that screenshot looks pretty sweet! Check  it out!

 

=================================================================

Also, at Mod Database,  I came upon this  little  project:

 

Doom 1 as 1 level, Doom 2 as 1 level

Description:

The mod allows Doom 1 to be played as one level with no loading screens while connecting all the
levels, the mod also allows Doom 2 to be played as one level with no loading screens. The main
game keeps all the secret's, the weapon locations, etc....

 

 

=================================================================

 

In other news (but not from this week), I accidentally ran across the fact that in May, they updated the Legacy port (website). This is good news because, well, I really liked the Legacy port back in the day and I'm glad to see it is active again. Just thought I'd  share in case you weren't aware. :-)

From the site:

 

Doom Legacy 1.45 beta1 released
by smite-meister on 2014-05-17
The first beta version of Doom Legacy 1.45 (rev1107) is out, you can find it in our download area.
1.45 will be our first "official" release in several years and it is absolutely packed with bugfixes and new features!

 

=================================================================

 

Finally, I bring to you for your viewing pleasure this group of playthroughs by various fans. Enjoy!:
