* Misc Notes *

These levels are designed to be playable using single player, cooperative,
and deathmatch modes.  They are small enough for 2-player deathmatch and
large enough for single player.  I took care to keep the levels simple
enough so that slowdown won't occur, but there is plenty of detail and
richness.

The levels are non-linear, allowing for multiple strategies.  There are
many windows and ledges for sniping.

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

The difficulty levels determine how many and what type enemies there are.
The difficulty levels also determine what types of weapons are available.
This is useful for deathmatch, so you can choose what weapons to use.  Here
is a chart of difficulty levels and weapons available:

    Difficulty level      1       2       3       4       5
Weapons                 ---     ---     ---     ---     ---
Pistol                  yes     yes     yes     yes     yes
Shotgun                 yes     yes     yes     yes     yes
SuperShotgun            yes     yes     yes     yes     yes
Chaingun                no      no      yes     yes     yes
Rocket Launcher         no      no      yes     yes     yes
Plasma Gun              no      no      no      yes*    yes*
BFG                     no      no      no      yes*    yes*

* Plasma gun and BFG are available for multiplayer only, except for 
MAP03, which has the plasma gun, and MAP04, which has the BFG, 
for single as well as multiplayer.

In other words, if you are single player at Ultra-Violent, you don't see
the plasma gun until MAP03, and you don't see the BFG until MAP04.

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

For hints on how to win, I have provided an .lmp for each map that
demonstrates starting out with a pistol at difficulty 4 (Ultra-Violent)
and getting (almost) 100% of everything with no cheating.  The .lmp's
were recorded with DOOM ][ version 1.666.

Here is a description of each level:

MAP01 "Stonewall" - demo file stonewal.lmp

The demons have built themselves a green stone building and
intend to defend it vigorously.

MAP02 "Neighbors" - demo file neighbor.lmp

Real estate is cheap in this lovely neighborhood.  Inspect the
charming homes and swimming pool.  Meet and greet your new
neighbors after moving in.

MAP03 "Catacombs" - demo file catacomb.lmp

You'll need the plasma gun to get the archvile.  The ledges are
wide and easy to stay on, unless you get lifted into the air.

MAP04 "Lift of death" - demo file lftofdth.lmp

Try to get the monsters on the lift to fight eachother.  The BFG
and Chainsaw are gettable - see the .lmp for how.

MAP05 "Blood Canyon" - demo file bldcanyn.lmp

Best to fight from inside the mountain at first.  You don't have to
engage the cyberdemon to exit the level, but there are plenty of
rockets and lots of maneuvering room in the canyon.
