So, I have went for the source.

Turns out, what you can do is to extract slade.pk3 into a "res" subfolder next to the Slade3 executable. (even if you don't run portable-mode - that flag affects only location of user settings).
As long as that "res" folder exists, slade.pk3 is completely ignored (you could even delete it) - "res" must contain all files needed for the app to run.
Start with full extracted pk3 and just edit the engine-definition files inside.

Good luck!

Wow, you are a Slade resource, thanks!

It's working now simply by having a /config/games folder in the Slade directory, after I've set Slade to be "portable". The thing is though that everything (line, sectors, thing) must be in the same cfg file, the #include directive do not seem to work at all, nor can I reference anything in the pk3 (which I don't need, but still). But it's working and it's clean: No strange specials from all the other Slade supported games anywhere in the UI, and I have free reign on all the values.

I'll try the /res trick, it might give me more flexibility.

Anyway, here is a screenshot of the result in Unity. I do *not* manually edit the prefab that gets created from the UDMF data, this is what it looks like directly coming from Slade:

The map is "ready to use", I also generate an aabb octree and the AI movement graph automatically.
