Ok, no problem, and I do understand what you mean. In the past, I had seen some WADs that were larger than 32 maps, but I don't think I got them to work except for megaman 8-bit deathmatch, but that was on zandronum. But overall, I'm extremely impressed with what obsidian is capable of and will definitely continue to use it for 32 map megawads. I love experimenting with the monster quantity and strength options too. And sorry about asking that; I will search first and ask later next time.

No apologies needed, I guess I should have clarified that it gets asked a lot in our Discord; I don't actually know if it's come up in this thread before.

Not sure if this is a bug, but I've never encountered any pain elemental in any of generated levels (beta 19 and 20). I did a full playthrough (30 levels) and now I'm at level 15 of the next wad, and 0 pain elementals. I did not change any of the monster options, all of the settings were on default.

Pain Elementals are marked as bosses and will usually appear is guardians on points of interest such as switch rooms, key rooms, exit rooms, and so on.

Should the option "Bosses As Regulars : Minor Bosses Only" change that? Or there is another option for that?
What does "Minor and Nasty Bosses Only" option do ?
Also, in "Doom Monster Control" does "Default" option is the same as using slider and setting it to 1 ?

Edit : I'm gonna answer to my own question, I looked into monsters.lua and there are three boss types - minor, nasty and tough.
So I will change pains to be "minor" bosses and use "Minor Bosses Only" option.
