Demon Pyramid
Description
Although this is the second wad I started on, it is the first wad I have finished. (The first level I started on was 'Underworld', E2M7 on PM7.WAD or MAP22 on PM6.WAD. Until I got and used BSP, it had severe HOMs and I could not finish it. By the time I used BSP, I was busy revising 'Demon Pyramid' which was already finished.) It took me a long time to build the level on Doom and then some to port the level to Doom][. It took even more time to playtest and modify the level.

Misc Author Info:       I am a Doom fan.  Prior to Feb. 1, 1996 I had no
                         means of reaching other people with a computer.
                         In other words, I have been unable to play
                         multi-player Doom.  Now I can share my pwads as
                         well as find comrades-in-arms or fragbait.

Description:            Although this is the second wad I started on, it is
                         the first wad I have finished.  (The first level I
                         started on was 'Underworld', E2M7 on PM7.WAD or
                         MAP22 on PM6.WAD.  Until I got and used BSP, it had
                         severe HOMs and I could not finish it.  By the time
                         I used BSP, I was busy revising 'Demon Pyramid'
                         which was already finished.)  It took me a long
                         time to build the level on Doom and then some to
                         port the level to Doom][.  It took even more time to
                         playtest and modify the level.

                        As my first level, 'Demon Pyramid' is special to me.
                         Of all the levels I made so far, Demon Pyramid was
                         the one level I revised the most.  I have placed
                         most versions of Demon Pyramid in this wad.  MAP01
                         is the first version while MAP05 (also E2M5 in
                         PM7.WAD or MAP15 in PM6.WAD) is the latest and,
                         hopefully, final verison.

                        This level was inspired by the scene from Indiana
                         Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark where Indy
                         enters the jungle temple to get the artifact, which
                         looks like a golden head.

* Construction *

Base                    :  MAP01 is a new level from scratch.  The rest are
                            are newer versions of MAP01.
Build Time              :  About four weeks to finish my first version.
                            Then it took about four months off and on
                            to playtest and modify the level for
                            better playability and appearance.  (It seemed 
                            like forever to me.)
Editors used            :  Win32DEU 5.24 (for creating most of the level) 
                           BSP1.1x (for node building on MAP03)
                           BSP1.2x (for node building on MAP04)
                           Warm16 (for nodes, blockmap, and reject on MAP05)
Known Bugs              :  MAP01 has too many things such that things on the
                            pyramid flickered or disappeared.
                           (I have not tested these levels on other machines.
                            I use a Pentium-100 with 16Mb Ram.  Some levels
                            may slow down some machines.  Any feedback
                            would be very helpful.)
