Names
KABOOM for BOOM v2.01
Description
See story below. I needed to test out the new texture modification tools in DeeP97, so I started with making some new texture names. Then I got carried away having too much fun and ended up with this level. This is a = BOOM = only release with elevators, conveyer belts, scrolling floors, underwater fun new sprites, new enemies, new weapons and other challenges. More textures added and some elements put back in that were not possible with standard DOOM because of visplane overflow limits (now gone with BOOM). This release fixes some underwater elevator hom problems that occurred with the final release of BOOM. The elevator switches are now stationary, not a perfect fix. Will wait and see if this type of design will be supported better in later versions of BOOM. KABOOM demonstrates complex and unique construction techniques with a high degree of detail (a DX4 and above is suggested). Set the Overlap Tolerance=0 in DeeP97 (F5 map options) to prevent vertex merging when modifying this level. Besides the BOOM tricks, there are 2 different textures on a -normal- wall, double lifts (you need to go down and then down AGAIN to get the weapon: room to left at start with door, go down 2x in pedestal), lot's of other visuals and a hell of a lot of fun. Go save the world....

                          I needed to test out the new texture modification
                          tools in DeeP97, so I started with making some

                          too much fun and ended up with this level.
 
                          This is a = BOOM = only release with elevators,

                          of BOOM.

                          KABOOM demonstrates complex and unique
                          construction techniques with a high degree of

Instructions            : Put KABOOM.WAD in your DOOM2 directory, type
                          "BOOM -file KABOOM.WAD -warp 1 -skill x"
                          where x is the skill number. 
                          
                          You can put the file anywhere you like, but then
                          you need to add the complete path to play.

KABOOM - The Story        :

While everyone else was busy fending off the "other" invaders a new
enemy arrived from the air.  It's almost too late. They have developed
unrivaled energy capture technology to conquer all humans, the Zoractic
Photon Encapsulator or ZPE. The ZPE is almost online.

You have been supplied with the brand new prototype weapons that suck power
from the ZPE to help you defeat the enemy.

Remember, only you can destroy them before they gain control of your
worthless mind.

The ZPE is partially operational, so be on the lookout for strange and
unusual energy flux densities. Many things are not what they appear to be!

There are 4 stages to recovering control of your life. The "DeeP" room has
4 teleport lines, only one gets you to the right stage!

Shadow Warrior says : "Be careful or you go KABOOM!"

                                just agree to not stray from the area<g>)

* Construction *

Base                    : New level from scratch 
Editor(s) used          : DeeP97, RMB (reject), Endoomer (ending text),
                          PSP (sky), MID2MUS (convert MID to MUS format)
                          ALL other sound, patches, sprite and ALL lump
                          import, Texture, Sprite and Flat modifications
                          were done by DeeP97! 
                          
Known Bugs              : None known (might be a few texture aligns left?)
                          Some "errors" are deliberate so don't fix them
                          (missing textures).  Also, some "errors" are caused
                          by ultra close (1 unit) spacing (floating to integer
                          conversions give false sector not closed errors).

Special Thanks to:

TNT's BOOM for making this level possible and of course ID for the original
and for releasing the source!  Thanks Carmack.

All the people that registered DeeP and DeeP97.

Thanks Again!  

========================================================================

Designer Notes:

I wanted to create a unique wad with design features rarely found and
emphasize the SF aspect. This level can be played deathmatch since it
has very few dead ends, although 4 players is suggested so finding
something to kill (or be killed) doesn't take too long.

It may not play well on anything less than a DX4/100 or P100.
