I thought the hell map was fine. The only thing that feels out of place with it to me is that I feel like it's more linear than the other maps.

I vote leave it in too. The way you enter it and then emerge from it are what fits it in. Totally understandable how you find it in the temple, and in getting out, you emerge into a graveyard. That helps truly be a detour that fits in. Sure it does break from the pirate theme for that level until the end, but hey, you've probably been wondering where these otherworldly swashbucklers have been coming from, and so now in that map you got your answer and can bring some of the swashbucklin' to their 'shore' now.

IMO, leave it or make it into only boss battle. also that hell map was total difficulty either.

For the hell map I'd suggest turning it more into something we all know from Monkey Island 2, to fit the general look of the project. As of now it feels too Doom in my eyes.

I cut the hell map to the last room only. I know this was one of the least voted option, but half of the votes being "not leaving as it is" was a sign that it should be changed somehow. I don't think I can make a totally new cool hell map, and the first part was "too Doom", as Torm said. I wasn't happy about it either, stock Doom textures were bringing it down. The last room is dark enough and is the reason the whole map as made, so now it goes straight to the point.

The entrance and exit concepts are kept, I will upload the new version (with an extra map) soon. Thank you for the feedback!

I personally thought the Battleships level was great as it was (probably one of my favorites from the map set), but otherwise these changes look nice.

I consider it finished; it has beginning and end, every monster and weapon is replaced.. this is the final version until I find a bug or make another map :D

I liked it as it was too, but it was a bit hard for players to use the cannon, so they opted to use other weapons, which is not the point of this map. Now that it is easier to use, I hope players will choose the cannon.

It was great up until the final boss fight. While fighting, he threw dynamite and then it crashed. I use GZDoom g1.8.4.

I wasn't aware of GZdoom 1.8.4 yet. It crashed here too, happens with this version only.

I made several tests and still have no idea why. What's weird is that the dynamite the boss throws is exactly the same the player throws, and those doesn't cause the game to crash.

You can play it with an older GZDoom version until this problem is solved... thanks for the report.

I'm not aware of any GZDoom 1.8.4; the GZDoom site lists 1.8.2 as the latest official version. But I use development builds, and never had any issue with Pirate Doom. But I see that the dynamite calls A_AlertMonsters, which did briefly cause crashes in previous dev builds. That bug is long since fixed, though.
