Is this map for D4D only or can it also be played with vanilla/other mods? Any maps from Zanieon get a VIP place on the "Must Play" list.

EDIT: I should learn to read. It says it in the OP, but I was too mesmerised by the video. Oh who am I fooling, I just didn't see the text. Well, if you make it vanilla compatible, we can haz slaughterparty?

Heh, if you played the Doom Reinforced Mapset and remember the first map, this one is a remake of that, the yellow keycard have a trap which is kinda a slaughterfest moment, but i will not spam pinkies this time, also the part where you restore the reactors to normal state after the yellow keycard it have another slaughterfest trap, both of those will be here as well.

We really need more of these Industron-themed maps. :D I loved Vinur-Prime, I loved Doom Reinforced, and I'm gonna love this. :D

Atm i'm working in release Version 2.9 of Hunter's Moon, but surely after the release of that i will resume the work on this and see if i can make a extense map as UACVPRB.

For now i'm removing the Tag [D4D] because what i had in mind was release this map months ago as promotion of D4D however this was halted and D4D pretty much works with most maps that uses no DECORATE/Zscript so i guess i will release this one directly with the second purpose, the universal compatibility with mods as the previous map i released did.

Demo Released! I think the wait time was too much for something that is almost 2 years in development.

Review of Main UAC Hangar so far:

First I will say I was very sad to have made it to the parking lot, only for the demo to end. With that being said..


The visuals are astounding and remarkable. It is something I would expect from a Zanieon map and it ran pretty well in QZDoom.

Having the monsters spaced out in encounters was very intelligent, along with the weapon/monster progression. Nothing seemed too tough or too easy, though there was a point where I was choked by a chaingunner and it had me on edge for a bit. I like those moments.

It was a little confusing to figure out where the first key was, though once I found it - the level became even more fun and sailed smoothly.

There are a lot of scenery and mechanisms on the map. So much gorgeous detail though I would expect the level to be more alive and less static. I can only imagine what that would do for the frame rate, however.

Overall this played like a champ for me. It took me back to the first time I played Sapphire and that still is a fun experience. Also, mixing the Doom 2 textures in with the new ones was superb! I like to see that kind of universal inclusion of texturing. Nothing felt odd or out of place.

Let us know when you've compiled a final release!!

A well made Cliffhanger is what makes people wanting more from it heh, so the parking lot which is one of the most iconic parts of the map is not shown in this demo.

Thanks!

This is the first half of the map mostly, so Hell Knights and Revenants are the hardest tiers you will find around, this still doesn't mean the gameplay will be easy as you confirmed.

It was a little confusing to figure out where the first key was, though once I found it - the level became even more fun and sailed smoothly.

The Red Key was added after a little subtle change of progression flow in the map, the room with the Tron hologram that looks like a bar was added and i didn't think in a good reason to make it part of the progression when i finished, so i added the Red Key there and made it the first key to be picked up instead of the Blue like in the original map.

There are a lot of scenery and mechanisms on the map. So much gorgeous detail though I would expect the level to be more alive and less static. I can only imagine what that would do for the frame rate, however.

In the final release there will be ambient sounds at least, if that is what you mean with "more alive".

Overall this played like a champ for me. It took me back to the first time I played Sapphire and that still is a fun experience. Also, mixing the Doom 2 textures in with the new ones was superb! I like to see that kind of universal inclusion of texturing. Nothing felt odd or out of place.

Honestly there are textures in Doom 2 that i consider the holy grail of information to the player and those textures i never replace or change, mostly the Key color for doors frames and switches.

I thoroughly enjoyed this map. If you want to see my FDA and review check the Youtube video below. My one qualm with the map was I'd receive messages like "parking lot now unlocked" and I think "where the fuck is that?". Once I realized it was always one of the GIANT doors (the first of which I missed and ran around like a headless chook for a couple minutes trying to find). I'm super amped to play the full release.
