I'm glad you also liked the Expansion :D

I felt the stock Ladder textures were kinda boring and didn't fit the setting very well so i went with a more Stone Ladder texture.

After checking ALL of the stakes were Damaging, so gonna fix that.

Thank you for catching these, will definitely fix them as well.

Thank you so much for the Feedback.

Spoiler: So there are my few things that IMO need fixing:

Just finished the expansion! This was incredible all around, I'm really amazed! Everything was a step up from the pretty high mark that Abysm 2 left off on, and the new levels were excellently crafted!

A couple notes/feedback:
  • I think the crocodiles should be more "neutral" and perhaps target other monsters as well as the player? I'm not sure if they already do this but I thought it'd be neat!
  • The main hub area really needs some music! Speaking of music, I know this part isn't done yet, but I think that after completing an objective/killing a boss, instead of going completely quiet, I think the music should revert back to the main level theme.
  • The final level could really use maybe one more enemy variant to keep things fresh. Even if it's just a palette swap dude who shots a poison projectile, I think something else would be really good here.
  • Returning to Ramses tomb at the end of the game should maybe have a better hint/direction, as I totally forgot over the course of the last couple of days playing this where he was at. This is probably my only nitpick regarding mapping/direction, by the way, the way you guide players through levels and get their attention is masterful and I never had a dull moment!
  • I think some of Nadia's reactions to things happening were a little strange, definitely going into the last level I was expecting something a bit more "wtf" than what we got. A super minor nitpick though!
Regarding the secret map:
Spoiler:
You totally nailed it, AGAIN! I had a lot of fun with this and can't wait for what the future holds!

Played through the latest version... Bravo, awesome expansion!
Honestly my one and only issue the entire time was the arena for the Stone Giant fight was too small. In a fight that emphasises circle strafing so much, the arena had so many things to trip on and stop (resulting in instant death) that the difficulty was more the annoying kind than being a genuine fun challenge. There's a section on the side with a gap next to a stair you can fall into which was particularly annoying.
The ending is also a bit abrupt but I assume that's simply because you haven't done up the ending fully (credits or a game end etc).
Just my opinion, everything else was awesome, and I LOVED how crazy it got at the end of the mod.. You're a legend and one of my favorite DOOM mod makers!

There should be an ending text at the end when you talk to the Mercenary to end the game. Did you get some kind of error?
using "changemap" console command tends to cause an error in the ending.

I am a silly boy and just read "king" on the objective, I'm meant to go to the OTHER king. So uhh, sorry about that.

Also playing through this and loving it. Eager to play the next expansion. Just wondering if there is a hard mode? Coming after playing Heretic on Plague, this is a little more... "relaxing"!
