The Iron Forge: a Xaser/Not Jabba collab map

Postby Not Jabba » Mon Mar 19, 2018 4:17 pm

The Iron Forge is a single map for Heretic, created by Xaser (architecture/layout) and me (thing placement). It plays in the E2M1 slot and requires ZDoom/GZDoom. Enjoy the public beta, and let us know what you think!

This map includes a variety of tweaks to Heretic's monsters and weapons to improve the pacing and balance of the game (especially to address that feeling you get when all the monsters are super weak but take forever to kill). If you've played a beta of The Wayfarer, you'll recognize most of these changes.

A quick copypasta author-post (since I happened to post it on DW first):

Xaser wrote:Some quick history: This was originally intended for Realm of Parthoris, but distractions happened and I wasn't able to get it done in any reasonable timeframe. It kinda sat homeless for a while until Not Jabba kindly offered to finish it (and donate those delicious Wayfarer gameplay tweaks), which is absolutely superheroic. Thanks again for bringing this to life!

For when someone inevitably notices and asks: yes, the map layout is based on a certain something. Props to whomever first notices. :P

[...did I just use "whom" correctly? For shame! This is the internet; who gives a sock about grammar?]


If you're wondering if it was absolutely necessary to include the grammar note, the answer is "fronk tube". Don't ask.
