What the heck, as long as the maps are good then story lines go second.
If you like short intermission stories, then you might wanna play "Shadows of The Nightmare Realm" mod.
Maybe watch a playthrough at least, but better play it yourself, it deserves your time.

Woah, this is way more than I ever expected! Doing this to the entire classic Doom franchise would be amazing (you don't have to though)!

MAP03 has an empty secret (sector #164) on lower skill levels. Finding such a secret is a bit disappointing.

Whoops. That'll be fixed in a version 2 - when it will be released, we're not sure. :P

I already gave this a review on Doomworld (four stars) but I wanted to repeat what I said over there on here. I really enjoyed this remix. It's fun and tough. I just wished (and hope) there's more of it. Still, the 11 levels provided is nothing to sneeze at since they're all of high quality, in my opinion. Awesome job, folks. <3

Also, MAP07 is quite broken on lower skill levels. Several teleport destinations (things #70, #72, #93) are missing preventing arachnotrons (medium skill) and archvile (easy and medium skills) from entering the fight.
Intentionally or not, candles (things #117-120) are not present on easy skill too.

Also is the voodoo doll supposed to rise the ceiling of the sector with the first of the final switches? It's not working for me.

Map07 was done by a guest mapper (Grymmoire), I'll take a look at the maps if he's alright with it to see if there's any flaws. And yes, drfrag - it's suppose to.

Well the poor guy is at his final position over the scroller and nothing happens but i cheated anyway (HMP skill) so i probably missed something, i pressed the switch with the revenants and nothing happened. This was in latest GZDoom (when i don't specify any version is the latest, the problem in ZDoom32 is the generalized crusher not killing you nor the monsters).

I usually don't like maps filed with revenants and cyberdemons but these ones are addictive

Does this mean the latter third of Doom 2 gets turned into a tech base?

i started it...and it opened with the standard room with some blood on the ground and i went "ah, so its one of these "spiced up" packs"

turn the corner at the end of the room, and my brain went "nope nope....this is something great."

im also going to use this chance to break my quicksave habit. so...considering theres already revenants taht mightve been a bad choice.

I wouldn't recommend it. At least, not for the ending of The Rise and Fall (The Crusher's replacement). I was able to make it up to that point without using quicksaves, but watch out for that final room. It's a bit...unbalanced.

Glad you're enjoying it! There has been a little progress with some of the later maps - but will take a while before anything is posted. Currently I'm in the process of moving and have little time to do any sort of mapping. So, as it stands, any feedback is worth it. The other members of the team are eye balling this thread for inspiration with fixing their existing maps and making later maps better.
