Description
A large alien base has been discovered by a Scout and Survey team in the Regulus Cluster on a close Terran analogue. Sensor readings show possible traces of a highly advanced technology. You've been assigned the job of exploration. Relax! Fleet Intel reports that it's 99.999% likely that the base is unoccupied and probably friendly (yeah,right!). You won't be allowed to carry any weapons in but your pistol... as usual.

Description             : A large alien base has been discovered by 
  a Scout and Survey team in the Regulus
  Cluster on a close Terran analogue.
  Sensor readings show possible traces of
  a highly advanced technology. You've been 
  assigned the job of exploration. Relax! 
  Fleet Intel reports that it's 99.999%
  likely that the base is unoccupied and
  probably friendly (yeah,right!). You won't
  be allowed to carry any weapons in but your
  pistol... as usual. 

  FI also reports that sensors show five 
  areas adjoining the main plaza, and
  suggests exploration counter-clockwise from
  the southeast. Some security gates and
  devices do seem to still show energy flows... 
  strange. You will beamed into one location 
  showing some anomalous energy readings.

  By The Way - you wouldn't want to upgrade your
  insurance plan now - would you?

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

INSTRUCTIONS              Oracle.wad is ~~1.3 MEG. If you sucessfully
  extracted/unzipped it, from the \DOOM2 directory,
  you should be able to type the following :

  DOOM2 -FILE ORACLE.WAD  [-options] <ENTER>

KICK ASS !!

Play notes:               You will require Doom ][ and a 486/66 with
  local video to be able play this wad well.
  This wad is the largest single level we 
  know of, and some impact on play speed is
  impossible to avoid. However we have used all
  means at our disposal, especially RMB, to make
  it playable, and we beleive it is.

  Co-op and Deathmatch notes:
  This wad is large and complex, hence not 
  ideally suited for multi-player play and
  potentially slow. But, the starts are
  there and it HAS been tested and support
  HAS been added.

* Known Bugs *          : Well, we kinda forgot to put multi-
  starting points in MAP03, so if you 
  play through Oracle in multi-, the 
  whole thing will crash when you try 
  to start MAP03...Sorry, but we feel
  that these levels are best played alone.
