Shiprock
Description
This level is a replica of the Rose Pauson residence (Shiprock) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Both floors are accessible, connected by a transport mechanism. I'm still looking for a way to turn off the sound, but for now consider it a feature, not a bug. This new version DOES allow death- match play. Simply start the game on Ultra-violence or Nightmare level and all the stuff will be there. No monsters are present at any skill level.

SHIPROCK: A Frank Lloyd Wright House

        This Doom 1 level is a replica of the Rose Pauson residence,
designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.  The house was built in Phoenix in
1939, and a fire from the living-room fireplace destroyed it in
1942.  The concrete structure became known as Shiprock, and remained
until 1980. By creative placement of teleporters, I have allowed the
player to walk through both floors of the house with only a slight
discontinuity.

This level is intended as a tour of the house.  No monsters are
included at any level, but deathmatch equipment is available in
Ultra-Violence mode for those who _insist_ on playing war games
inside a work of art.

        To play this level properly, you will have to install the
accompanying DeHackEd 2.3 patch file.  DeHackEd is available at all
Internet Doom archives, or if you got this level on a CD, it might
be on that CD.  Note that if you set up DeHackEd incorrectly, you
could permanently change your DOOM.EXE, and I will not be held
accountable!  Once the patch is installed, start Doom with the
command

doom -file wadpath\shiprock.wad -warp 1 1 -skill 1

substituting the modified DOOM.EXE filename for "doom" and the
correct path of shiprock.wad for "wadpath".

Note: The patch lowers the player width to fit through narrow
halls, and suppresses the teleport flash.
