Xperiment [UPDATED v1.2]

Postby Berserker » Thu Oct 14, 2021 1:51 pm

Finally I released version 1.2 of Xperiment with fresh new screenshots. I'm also happy to say that I'm currently working on 2 other maps for the wad : Purgatory and Red Phosphorous.
They will be available on the next few updates :)

---

Episode 1 - The Facility : You start the level in a UAC facility and have to make your way outside, while monsters are all over the place.
The first thing to do is to shut down 3 nuclear reactors to progress and then reach the portal to Hell outside that has been opened by the monsters.

Episode 2 - Purgatory : Coming soon.

Episode 3 - Red Phosphorous : Coming soon.

The wad is made so it can be played either as vanilla Doom or with Brutal Doom, so don't worry.

You can find Brutal Doom or Dox Brutal Doom ( recommended ) here : https://www.moddb.com/mods/brutal-doom/downloads/dox778s-personalized-brutal-doom-v21

The map looks super amazing! I played with some mods and got tons of lag so, maybe it didn't like my mods. Other than that, I saw the monsters glitching out as cars.

First of all, thanks for the detailed feedback.

I'm a bit sad to hear that there's a lot of errors in the wad, but rest assured that I will fix all that in the next update I'm working on. Also I've taken your advices about backtracking for health, and adding ammo in the beggining of map and the Cyberdemon part, so I will work on it as well !

PS : Yes, the radsuit in the glass is a distraction, but I will make it more obvious lol

Glad that you liked it otherwise :)

Super happy that you liked it !

What mods did you use ?

I know the game could lag a bit with BDoom when I tested it, and I'm trying my best to fix this at the time. For the monsters glitching out as cars, I figured it does that when using heavy mods like BDoom because of names double defining or something. Will take a look on it.

Thx !

Really enjoyed this. It's a well put together map that plays well - nice and logical, good fights etc. I pretty much agree with all of the comments that ritaremton mentioned and I found the same bugs.

I did notice frame rates dropping in places - not problematically, but it was detectable. I played without additional mods. I suspect that the reflective floors are the main culprit. They are known to cause lag if used excessively and you have used them a lot.

Hi and thanks for the review ! I'm aware that there are lots of bugs and such, so I'm currently working on improvements on the map and also adding new content.

Good map, Berserker! They are well developed and the complexity is quite normal. I wonder why the beginning of Xperiment resembles Half-Life?

By the way, will there be more maps?

Hi Void Warrior, well I admit that I was a bit inspired by the first Half Life and then I used my imagination. I am currently working on 2 other maps for Xperiment, my main goal is to make a 3 maps wad to start with.
