That's E4, technically, though.

Also my second favourite console Doom level, behind Twilight Descends (also E4).

Unless something changed, essel remixed the E2 soundtrack for this. Waltz of the Demons (E2M7) is here

What's the main obstacle that's holding TSoZD from completion?

Time? Manpower? Resources?

I think it´s a mix between inspiration and real life stuff.

They switched to an external message board, which was when I lost touch with them because I was never able to gain access.
I've sent you a PM. I didn't hear from you for a while after everybody else migrated over, so I had re-closed registration due to spambots trying to get in.

Apologies for the massive bump. . .

KDiKDiZD has put those project back in my mind, especially since I heard some of the resources (the marble STARx textures and the undead Hell Noble) were originally intended for this project. I know chances of this being revived any time soon are probably quite low, whatwith Esselfortium being knee-deep in BTSX, Tormentor leaving the project (and releasing his version of E2M3, I believe?) and so forth, not to mention modding sensibilities having seemingly changed since KDiZD was released over a decade ago.

But it got me wondering: how much was actually finished for this project? Were other new enemies sprited out? Were any of the levels in or near a state of completion?

I don’t know how much anyone will be willing to talk about it, but I’d be very interested in whatever info is out there!

Just in case you are interested: A remaster of The Refinery has been released a few months ago with nice new twists and improvements.

However, although we are adding more complexity to the maps, we hope to have learned from the mistakes made with KDiZD and we are taking special care to incorporate the layout changes as naturally as possible into the original works and make the resulting levels flow as smoothly as possible.
Glad to hear that. I usually just played first two maps and then idcleved to z1m8 because after z1m2 maps become more like completely different maps with a few recognizable areas crammed in. And IMO they are way too big, long and confusing that it starts to get tedious.

Also, I'm wondering about Plasma Rifle and BFG9000, will these weapons stay? I really do not like that in KDiZD they're replaced with a grenade launcher and a rifle.

Did you notice you're quoting a 12-year-old post? :D TSOZD is long-dead.
