Assault Drop
Description
This is a fairly large level, most of which is "indoors". It's mostly fairly conventional, but there are a few fun little twists. One planned "scenery" feature - planetary defense missiles in one of the rooms - didn't make it in because of the DOOM! engine's linedef limit HOM bug. This feature may be added back in after the release of DOOM! version 1.666, the final DOOM! version.

Description             : This is a fairly large level, most of
                          which is "indoors".  It's mostly fairly
                          conventional, but there are a few fun
                          little twists.  One planned "scenery"
                          feature - planetary defense missiles in
                          one of the rooms - didn't make it in
                          because of the DOOM! engine's linedef
                          limit HOM bug.  This feature may be added
                          back in after the release of DOOM! version
                          1.666, the final DOOM! version.

                          NOTE:
                          This WAD comes with a set of modified weapon
                          sprites.  The new sprites are simply rotated
                          (and sometimes flipped) versions of the
                          existing sprites for the chaingun, shotgun,
                          rocket launcher and plasma rifle.  If you wish
                          to use these sprites, you must unzip this
                          archive using 'pkunzip -d'.  Batch files are
                          provided to install and remove the modified
                          sprites.
                          Installing the new sprites looks a little odd
                          when you kill sergeants, but was done in order
                          to make the armory look way cool.  (And it
                          DOES make it easier to find shotguns in the
                          compound, too....)

                          A set of new sprites for rockets are also
                          included.  The new rocket sprite *LOOKS* like
                          a rocket, instead of like a cardboard toilet
                          paper tube with wooden fins glued on.

                          Both sets of sprites will be made available
                          in sprite PWADS, once 1.666 is available (and
                          I figure out how to properly build sprite PWADS).
                          This will eliminate the need to modify your
                          DOOM.WAD file or use DMGRAPH.
