Ozonia Megawad [Boom] - RC4 OUT!

Post by Tomasoares »



Ozonia is the third mapset of the Moonblood series, containing 32 carefully designed short maps with compatibility level 9.

It's my most ambitious project by far and hopefully the most refined of the trilogy! It's heavily inspired by Plutonia, but it has its own flavor to create a refreshing and unique classic Doom experience! Eviternity, Ancient Aliens, BTSX series and Monti's work are also other big influences.

The levels are as difficult as Eviternity with very low enemy count and strategic setpieces, but early E1 maps are going to be easier to allow a nice learning curve. As expected, exploration will take a large role in these maps, but I worked really hard to make them as straight forward as possible so the players won't feel lost.

The wad will feature two new enemies:

- Hierophant: replaces romero's head and it is a mid-tier flying demon which fires a mancubus shot and goes berserk if it takes a shot.

- Hellion: replaces commander keen and is a fast moving low-tier demon that shoots three plasma bullets while moving himself.

You can download Ozonia RC1 in any of the two links below. Both are the same wad, but Deluxe contains the soundtrack in MP3 format.
If you are playing Doom with "Microsoft GS Synthwave" soundfound, you should download Classic, which contains the soundtrack in MIDI.

No version is better than the other, as long you use "Microsoft GS Synthwave" soundfound for the Classic edition!

Classic: https://www.mediafire.com/file/sbcsfw7n ... c.zip/file
Deluxe: https://www.mediafire.com/file/qs1rloty ... e.zip/file

You can also listen to the soundtrack online here:

The mapset will be tested on prBoom+ and ZDoom 2.7.1.

Gave this a test and I gotta compliment the level design. Really cool how you took advantage of BOOM's advanced features and even provided some twists of your own. And that Soundtrack! I love this mapset. I would grade it a 9/10, but for the sake of excellent OST, I'm gonna give it a 10/10!

Actually modern ports can use any midi source, not necessarily the cheesy Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth.

Re: Ozonia Megawad [Boom] - RC3 OUT!

Hey guys!

RC3 is released! It fix lots of small bugs and it has some improvements with all the feedback received from streamers (Tarnsman, Stxvile, Painelemental667, Vortale + Koren's demos) and the DWM Club. (thanks a lot, guys!)

It also has UMAPINFO implemented, so the episode schema also works for boom compatible ports. I wanted to release it only in february, but the mapset can get unfinishable by using MBF compatibility mode, which I was warned off by HAK (I believe) earlier >.<

You can download the new release in the following links:

RC3 Deluxe: https://www.mediafire.com/file/ea3k96od ... e.zip/file
RC3 Classic: https://www.mediafire.com/file/a799a2y6 ... c.zip/file

don't they all sound alike more or less? I got like 10 or so. What's your favourite ones?

As for the posted wad, fantastic, I can just sit there, look at the map design and enjoy it like a good glass of wine

Also is a reminder that I should sit down with Photoshop and Doom2.wad and just turn some knobs to get fresh looking graphics. Did you make this all of your own or is it common practice to use some well known resource packs (I have no idea)?

RC4 is out! It features a lot of changes, but 98% of them are either small fixes or QoL changes (that makes navigating easier in a lot of maps). Biggest changes are in map 31, but if you have already played it, it's not worth it checking it out again lol You can download here:

Deluxe: https://www.mediafire.com/file/qs1rloty ... e.zip/file

Really enjoyed playing through this megawad. There were a few times where I did get lost but that was me overlooking things. Didn't take long for me to know what to do or where to go. :P

Release Candidate, so RC1 is basically like 1.0 and RC4 is like 1.4. usually up to the final release version which is just "final version" or something
