I think its futile to attempt to balance a mapset to be compatible with so many gameplay changing mods since there's so damn many nowadays with their own quirks - plus loading other mods on top takes away from the author's intent if it affects the gameplay.


Fair enough.

Since this mapset features custom monster sprites, would it not make more sense to replace the Rifle Zombiemen with Pistol Zombiemen, since they now drop pistols?

UF_EP3 does not want to work for me, I get this message

Spoiler:


I could not find a map using the Slime animation, so I commented those out, and I get this message

Spoiler:


I could not find that sprite, so I gave up.

Unfamiliar is to be ran with the DOOM2 iwad. This is specified in the OP.

When I saw the maps in the ExMy format when opened with Slade3 I mistakenly moved the files into my PWADS_D1_GZD folder.

I moved them back to the PWADS_D2_GZD folder. No problem now.

Absolutely loving this level set's latest iteration, but I've run into several bugs on E3M3.

-One of the red doors cannot be re-opened (Single trigger type) which can result in you getting stuck if it closes before you go through it.

-The BFG secret traps you because the first of the two secret doors is a single trigger type and closes behind you.

E3M4's first door is also a single trigger, so when you open it, if it closes before you pass through...Welp...Won't open again.

These maps go really well with a survival horror theme. Love the designs.

Tried the 3 maps and it's amazing. I love how much work is done, the colorful and dark visuals.
It's funny but while I played the wad, I forgot to put the music volume up and just had the ambient sounds running. Well it worked perfectly fine this way :D

I am looking forward to seeing your take on Thy Flesh Consumed - easily the worst Ultimate Doom episode for me - as well as Doom II!

Do you plan on reimagining SIGIL as well?

EDIT: For some reason, I cannot get 100% kills in E1M5. Apparently, they are sixteen enemies that will not activate and teleport in.

EDIT #2: In E1M6, I find myself stuck in that room after the door closes a second time.

Having spent more time with this mapset, I have to say it's becoming a favorite. I do have some gripes, but I don't know how many of these are things that are by design or not. None of them are dealbreakers, mind you.

-Fatal pits seem to be a recurring theme where if you fall in, you're basically dead. No lifts to get back out. Can't say I'm a huge fan of this, I prefer there to be some way out of a pit.

-Powerups seem to be particularly stingy aside from the Berserk pack. I only found a total of two soulspheres in episode 1, I don't think I ever saw a single Partial Invisibility (Yeah, it's mostly useless, but some gameplay mods do make use of it and make it better), Megaarmor also seems to be extremely rare, and I've only ever seen one invuln sphere in episode 3. is there a reason these things are so rare?

In E2M3, there is a backpack that is basically unreachable because of a short pillar blocking the way.
