DogTag 3 for ST
Description
This wad takes DogTag3, a classic set of team-based multiplayer maps from 1996, and updates them to be compatible with Skulltag's self titled game mode. Seeing as how these are some of the original maps which inspired the Skulltag concept to begin with, I thought it would be fitting to make them more accessible and playable with a modern online source port. These play similarly to most Skulltag maps, with one interesting difference. Rather than simply grabbing the enemy team's skull from out of their base, two teammates must work together to get the enemy team's skull from their own base. One person must infiltrate the enemy base and flip a switch, which exposes the enemy skull back at their base for a few seconds, allowing the second person to grab it. Once they do that, the person with the skull has to make a run for the north side of the map where the score zone is. There's a field of lava surrounding the score area that only the person with the skull can enter, but other players have lots of room to try and take that person out from the ground nearby. Once the person scores successfully, they get teleported back to the main area to try and score again. Here are the changes I made in this version: - Removed the former MAP03 (FragTag). That's for two players, this isn't. - Radiation suits replaced with the red and blue skulls - Replaced the entire complicated scoring lane mechanism with Skulltag's score pillars and some behind-the-scenes ACS scripting - Removed the score displays and other 'indicator' objects since Skulltag does this stuff itself - Added more player starts per map - Replaced some of the MIDI music with better sounding MOD versions - Removed extraneous linedefs and textures - Removed access to the BFG bonus room, since in ST you cannot continue play after the point limit is reached. I considered turning it into a 2-point score zone or something, but for now it's off-limits. Maybe in a later update.

                          surrounding the score area that only the person
                          with the skull can enter, but other players have

                          Here are the changes I made in this version:
                           - Removed the former MAP03 (FragTag). That's for
                          two players, this isn't.
                           - Radiation suits replaced with the red and blue
                          skulls
                           - Replaced the entire complicated scoring lane
                          mechanism with Skulltag's score pillars and some
                          behind-the-scenes ACS scripting
                           - Removed the score displays and other
                          'indicator' objects since Skulltag does this
                          stuff itself
                           - Added more player starts per map
                           - Replaced some of the MIDI music with better
                          sounding MOD versions
                           - Removed extraneous linedefs and textures
                           - Removed access to the BFG bonus room, since
                          in ST you cannot continue play after the point
                          limit is reached. I considered turning it into
                          a 2-point score zone or something, but for now
                          it's off-limits. Maybe in a later update.
