Escape to Corvus
Description
A sixteen level adventure for single player or coop. Deathmatch starts are included and the levels should at least be functional for this mode. Anyway, the story is that after the alien invasion, you were one of many people trying to make it to Earth's starport to escape the onslaught. The ship is destined for the Corvus base on a moon of Jupiter.

* Play Information *

Game                    : TNT.  The game is not heavilly TNT-themed.
Map #                   : MAP01-MAP15,MAP31
Single Player           : Designed for
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : Designed for, extra ammo and health included
Deathmatch 2-4 Player   : player starts added.  Since MAP09 and MAP10 are not good for deathmatching,
  I have the players spawn into small isolated rooms where they can simply end
  the level.
Other game styles       : No
Difficulty Settings     : Yes


* Construction *

Base                    : New levels from scratch.
Build Time              : This project spent over 11 years on my hard drive in some incomplete state
  or other before I finally finished it.
Editor(s) used          : *First, DCK 3.62.  When I started this in about 1997, I was still using DOS
  6.22 and Windows 3.11
  *Second, WinDEU 5.24.  When I started using Windows 98, I wanted to use an
  editor that did not require rebooting the computer.  Also, DCK had a nasty
  bug where it would crash when saving the level.
  *Third, I used the WadAuthor trial version.
  *Fourth, Yadex 1.70.  When I switched to Linux, I wanted an editor that 
  would run natively in it.  This environment was BY FAR the most stable for 
  editing levels.  I NEVER had Yadex crash, and I probably ended up doing 
  more than half of the total work on the WAD this way.
  *WinTex for adding the graphics.  Unfourtunately, it is not available for
  Linux, but it runs well under Wine.
  *bsp4linx for node building.  I marked sectors used for the doortracks 
  and windowframes with tag 900, so that they would not be split.  This 
  insures that solid glsss windows and transparent doors will appear 
  perfectly most of the time on non-GL source ports.  There is still a tiny  
  area on MAP14 that I can't fix.  On level 15, I had to set the "factor" 
  parameter to 6 to fix all of the windows.  On levels 15 and 31, this 
  factor setting also fixed major visual disturbances.
  GIMP: for putting the title screen and level name text pics together.
Known Bugs              : The solid glass windows may look weird depending on the source port used.
  On GL newer ports, if the windows go east-west, the inside edges may show 
  a gap as if no texture was applied.  This is a GL nodes building bug and 
  will have to be fixed in the source port.  I used the same method for 
  transparent doors as on TNT Evilution level 21.
May Not Run With...     : corvus.wad does not require a specific port, but older ports are not
  recommended.  They may cause SBOs and VPOs on some of the large levels.
  Additionally, PrBoom is not recommended because of the inability to look
  up or down.  These levels were designed around the ability to freelook, 
  and in particular, MAP09 requires this ability in order to finish it.
