Restarted. Finished. Man, was that awesome. :D

Loving the wide-open spaces. Perfect for flying around with Meteorfist, dealing swift deaths like the Angel Of Death. :D

Looks awesome, but you're using "per se" (which is not English) wrong.

Well guys, here's the final version of this map.

The final changes are:
*Fixed the Section 2 Door opening only from the opposite side of Blue Section after you unlock the entire station by pressing the Hangar unlock switch.
*Added a staircase in the north side of the City's valley.
*Reduced the pinkies and imps spawn amount in the Blue Key trap by half
*Monsters can not go into the City's lake anymore, added Blocking in the linedefs to prevent them sink there making the task of cleaning up the valley harder than it should be

Kek, i'll wait if someone spot the "signature easter egg" i put in the valley area which i will start to include in every non-Hunter'sMoon map i will make.

With this one finished, now i will resume the development of this.

OOPS! I updated the file again for a minor fix with weird BSP construct in the Hangar, i updated GZDoom Builder and it returned to the default setting of node building which is not the ideal for this map, now i restored it to a more extensive BSP nodebuilding so the problem in the North Hangar with the wall showing the outside area at far distances should be fixed now.

A buddy I know livestreamed it.

Maybe MetaDoom wasn't the best option. : P

Although I will say that we all kind of agreed that we thought it was maybe a bit too long. Actually couldn't finish it, that's how exhausting it was. Also, the music kind of grated against my senses after a while.

Sort of felt like the map didn't need to be this long, either, but that's just me.

If I had to assign a number to this one, i'd give it a 7. Had some things that bugged me, but it's actually pretty good overall, if you don't try to finish it all in one go, and take it in pieces.

Try it with Guncaster/Trailblazer. That'll get you through it fairly quick...

I can finish it within an hour, with that. :D

Finished it in 2 hours with metroid, this is now my goto map for testing gameplay wads. It a perfect blend of doom 1 level design with doom 2 battlearenas scattered through it, only issue I had was the end when you gotta find the monsters you missed. Maybe an automap right in front of the city would fix it, idk awesome anyways

This map is epic. The sheer scale of everything is mind blowing. Took me 1 hour 12 minutes and 59 seconds to complete.

Awesome that you played it Enjay, i'm still pending to play Waterlab GZD entirely, the last try i did i had to leave PC for a while and i'm not that typical player who uses the save function of the engine, i tend to play maps entirely in a single run.

Probably, Vanilla takes a bit of time to run trough this map, my shortest run was 40Min with Infinite Ammo active, otherwise 1h+ due to the Slaughterfest in the Teleport Section and Energy Hub plus the monster hunting in the valley.

Not only played it, but really enjoyed it. The slaughter sections are not really my cup of tea but I enjoyed the other fights. The huge scale and impressive architecture was really quite stunning - and then when I got outside and saw the city in the distance - wow! The only shame was that you don't get to play in the city. Although you claim this map is "oldschool-styled" and, yes, if you sort of screw your eyes up and think, yeah, it has a lot of old-school blue/silver/tech themed areas and so on you could just about see that but I wouldn't really consider a map of this magnitude (both in terms of the physical size of the whole map and the grandeur of each and every room) as old-school at all.

@DoomKrakken if by vanilla you mean did I play it without any mods, the answer is yes, vanilla. No mods loaded; just the map and the standard gzdoom lights and brightmaps files. The teleporting slaughter fight did take ages - I even began wondering if the script had somehow broken and was looping out of control without me ever being able to finish it. :lol: I got through eventually though.

Played this map with Bulleteye and loved it despite in come cases due to modded mobs I had some cases where the fights kinda weighed in their favor and I resorted to bullet eye a few times till I managed to score level 3 buster which became my crowd control gun XD

I'll admit the bit at the end where you have to hunt down all the monsters you missed kinda caught me off guard though ^_^ I did kinda leave a few especially some revanants in the waste area cause I was running low on HP and decided 'screw this noise' and bolted and just kinda forgot about em.
