THETA-4.WAD (new version)
================================================================ Title : THETA-4.WAD (new version) Author : Michael Houston Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : DOOM disciple, PWAD apprentice, LMP guru. Description: Due to the imposing evil forces that presently inhabit the Earth, the United Federation of Space Marines (UFSM) have set up an isolated training ground hidden away in mountains of Tibet. What was once a peaceful shrine dedicated to meditation of Tibetan monks, THETA-4 (Territorial Human-to-Human Earth Training Area) has been converted into a highly active centre for the training of Marine recruits. The THETA series training grounds specializes in battles that are strictly marine vs. marine, since it has been shown in the past that there have been a number of cases where platoons have been completely wiped out by one of their own "former" marines, due to possession. Like all the other THETA's, marines will fight each other, not other monsters (there are none). Your goal is simple - eliminate all other opponents. You have every weapon at your disposal, yet to get to each one may not be easy. You also have the choice to play with the shrine containing only weapons (ie only those items which will not disappear) or with the place littered with every kind of item and weapon imaginable. To exit the level you must cooperate. * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E1M1 Single Player : Yes. But designed primarily for Deathmatch. Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes. Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes. Difficulty Settings : See below New Sounds : None New Graphics : Yes, a new sky Other : An LMP, nothing exciting though- just shows how to get the weapons. * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Build Time : About 25 hours Editor(s) used : DEU 5.0 & 5.1, BSP 1.1x Known Bugs : Player can get trapped in a pit, but very unlikely.

However, permission is given for those who wish to include it in a Deathmatch Episode. * Where to get this WAD * FTP sites: infant2.sphs.indiana.edu PLEASE NOTE: ============ - For those of you who have an older version of THETA-4, you may notice a few changes: - The single player scenario has been removed. - Skill four is now designed for a -respawn deathmatch game. - Deathmatch starts have been more evenly distributed. - There are now TWO ways to exit the sniper's nest. - fixed a texture (whopee.) I removed the single player scenario because I plan on including this with a DM episode which I'll be releasing in a few months, and I figured that those who download DM wads never usually play the wads solo anyway. - Here's a breakdown of what's included for each skill level: Skill Comments ============================================================= 1 No items that disappear, only weapons 2 Same as above, only less ammo when you pick up 3 Weapons and LOTS of items 4 Some monsters (for respawn game), weapons, no items 5 Same as above (NIGHTMARE!) - For multiplayer games, the exit button is between two RED torches. 2 players must cooperate in order to get to the exit. - This level was designed to be a Deathmatch level - there are no toxic areas where the opponent can kill himself. The only way you can suicide is by rocketing yourself. - The level is riddled with ambushes and snipers spots. For example, the stairs leading from the doors at the beginning have a little nook near them. The trick is to open the door, and hide in the nook. The opponent will notice (or hear) the door opening, then proceed in that direction, up the stairs, right past you. This will give you a perfect shot in the back. - It is possible to get ALL the weapons without cheating. Check the demo if you're stuck.
