ALIENS: The Co-Op Levels
Description
This is a 3-level .WAD I decided to make after downloading the Aliens DOOM graphics/sound patch off the Internet. The levels that came with this patch really sucked, so I decided to make my own for single and Co-Op play. These levels feature realistic lighting, lots of attention to detail and tons of action. Hope you enjoy it!

Title                   : ALIENS: The Co-Op Levels 

Filename                : ALIENCOP.WAD (you should also have ALI2GFX.WAD and
                          ALI2SND.WAD from the ALIENS DOOM patch, otherwise
                          *much* of the atmosphere will be lost. Textures and
                          objects will look out of place without the patches.
                          I used ALIENS DOOM v2.1)

                          good levels if I do say so myself!

Story:   Just watch the movie and play this level. I tried to follow the
         movie's locations somewhat, though it's no Aliens Total-Conversion.

         Anyways, you recieve a distress signal from the planet LV-426, where
         70 colonist families were sent to terraform the land. You (and up to
         3 other Space Marines, if playing multi-player) fly to and land on
         LV-426, outside the colony complex. Upon entering inside, you realise
         it's deserted. After checking the colonists rooms for signs of life, you
         proceed to the sub-levels, and finally the basement. It is here that the
         real adventure begins; and your worst nightmares come to life...


Other:       I suggest you play this .WAD 4-player Co-op, as that is what I
             meant it to be for! There aren't really many good Co-op
             levels out there (that I have played), and playing DOOM II
             over and over gets boring. So I decided to do something about it;
             I created my own levels, added the Aliens DOOM graphics/sound
             .WADS, and voila! I had my own semi-Aliens TC. Single player is
             fun too.

                Let me know what you think of this .WAD, and remember,
             you MUST HAVE ALIENS DOOM v2.0 or higher to have the right
             textures in the right places, etc... because without the GFX/SND
             patch everything looks stupid (the creators of Aliens DOOM
             created and replaced wall textures and certain objects).
             So if you don't have the ALI2GFX.WAD and ALI2SND.WAD, then you
             will be missing out on the whole point of the levels: ALIENS!

                Also, check out the lighting job! Not trying to be too
             conceded, but I think I did a great job on lighting/shadows.
             Ever noticed how most .WADs don't *really* pay much attention
             to light levels, etc.? Well I decided to create lots of realism
             using various levels of lights, light sources and the smooth
             blending of light from one sector to the next. I'm sure you'll
             agree: It makes the mood much more involving and sombre.

             If you find it too dark, I suggest you use Gamma Correction.
             Simply press F11 while playing and you can adjust the brightness
             up to four levels; I suggest setting it at level 3 or better
             still, level 4.

             Oh yeah, play with the lights off.
