Re: Unfamiliar Episode 2: Frontier of Death

I have a new fun issue for you: In e1m4 you can either play the map as normal to get to e1m5 or you can turn around and hit the switch at the other end of the tram which, for some reason, has the end level trigger.

Fun levels so far, keep it up!

Episode III news

Sat Jul 25, 2020 5:51 pm

Work on Episode III has begun, although it'll be a while before you see any new maps because there's quite a lot of work to be done in terms of improving the current two episodes. Plus for the next stage of the mod I want to up the scale of new content so current jobs involve sprites, textures and sounds. Right now here's some enhanced lamps/torches. ... 002941.png ... 003010.png ... 002954.png ... 003145.png

Some extra additions to E1M1-E1M4. E1M3 - the mineral refinery - now actually has some nondescript mineral substances in it now. ... 000426.png ... 000528.png ... 000629.png ... 000711.png

Nice! Gonna have to give this another look soon, I think. Still looking forward to seeing what you do with Episode 3.

You mentioned new sprites and whatnot, but this would still be compatible with gameplay mods, correct?

It seems to be case-by-case. I know for certain that Project Brutality and Hideous Destructor suffer no compatibility issues.

Pointlight changes

Sun Aug 30, 2020 11:05 am

There's been some changes to the pointlights. They're more vibrant now and make hellish areas look like discos. Who knew the forces of hell liked their aesthetic lighting? ... 175804.png ... 175823.png ... 175845.png ... 175952.png

Some actors have also received pointlights such as the nukage barrels, evil eyes, floating skull rocks and health bonuses.
