Persephone - The Best of Phobus vol. 3 (update 29/07/19)

UPDATE: I've made a minor alteration to volume 3 (same link below still) and, a bit more importantly, done a full three-volume release, which is also linked below. Text files have also been provided.

I'm back and I've got another compilation volume for you!

Download Persephone volume 3 (text file)
(Requires ZDoom 2.8.1 Final or later child ports)

Download Persephone volumes 1 to 3 (text file)
(Requires ZDoom 2.8.1 Final or later child ports)



The final volume of 10 maps compiled from my history. Works on it's own and with the previous two volumes. I've not tested it with the /idgames versions of Volumes 1 and 2, bu there's no reason to believe that all three loaded in the right order wouldn't work too.

Here's four screenshots (-nomonsters and no HUD or player sprites):





This took a while to happen because I was originally trying to finish mapping Warpzone II in order to include it. I've since changed my mind and put the original Warpzone in it's place. I've made a couple of minor edits to keep things working here, but these maps are very much as they were released.

If you've played the previous Volumes already and want more, this should be right up your street. You're technically playing through 14 maps here, but I'm treating five of them as one map because they're so small and yet were very difficult to merge into one map.


Plans for the future?

Well, obviously I'll be compiling all three volumes together at some point and uploading that to my site. This individual volume and probably the combined three will also get archived, assuming no glaring errors are pointed out that need fixing first.

Longer term I've got a bit more of an ambitious plan. A "Complete Edition" which builds on the full, three-volume release. I'll do a development thread for that in the next couple of weeks so that people can see what the differences will be. For the time being, I'll let this breathe and let you give it a go!

You have plans to complete the mapset with maps MAP09 and MAP10?

Actually, I was thinking I'd change Twisted Joke and The Cast & Crew to those two map slots from their custom ones, to be honest! I agree that it's strange that MAP09 and MAP10 aren't in Volume 1 when it's a 10 map set.

Sorry everybody - I made a mistake with the MAPINFO on the full three version release. I've rectified it now and it's available through the same link, so if you have already downloaded, please do re-download!
