The Dime Birthday Level Collection
Description
Twelve levels designed for the 25th birthday of Doom speedrunner Dime! The restrictions given to the designers were: - Boom compatibility (a.k.a. PrBoom+ -complevel 9) - No green or blue armor - Maximum 75 monsters - In the style of scythe map 22-24 gameplay (texture use is up to [one]self) - Must [have] a BFG, but only a maximum of 200 cells in the map INCLUDING BFG pickup. All levels were played by Dime on his Twitch channel. He wrote on Doomworld afterward that "From Melbourne streets, to green scythe, to near impossible maps it was all a blast." Said "near impossible map" is included as MAP32 and cannot be reached in normal gameplay; you must warp to that level to play it.

       [Epica - Sensorium]

"This was made during a call with Tarns and MTrop before any of us were aware

bit to make sure it fits the rules better. Happy birthday, Dime!" -Alfonzo

MAP03: Dime Another Day
Author: ArmouredBlood
Build time: 8 hours + 5ish hours of playtesting
Music: "Something from TNT, I got it from map24 of scythe."
       [The TNT: Evilution MAP02 music, which is _not_ called "Smells Like
        Burning Corpse" despite fan insistence that it is.]

"Oh, I included some fun things, I'll let it be a surprise." -ArmouredBlood
[NOTE: Said "surprise" was the inclusion of the Evil Marine and Afrit from
 Scythe 2. It was indeed a surprise for Dime!]

MAP04: Rocket In Yo Face (Happy Birthday, Dime)
Author: Matt Tropiano
Description: "This map was made with Dime in mind, as he rockets himself in
             the face every speedrun. Gives it a nice personal touch, I
             feel."
Build Time: 3.5 Hours
Music: "Stars" by Forty-Two
Textures: From CC4. Whatever.

"Made this without seeing the requirements because I made something special
_out of the goodness of my heart._" -MTrop

Music: "Donna to the Rescue" by Bobby Prince
Build Time: 4 hours on and off for the past few days.

          honest." [It was.]

MAP06: Bare Your Fangs
Author: dobu gabu maru
Music: MAP11 of Zone300 [by Paul Corfiatis]
Textures: Stock

"Dunno if you like my style of mapping or not, but I made one anyway.

Author: purist
Description: "Small Doom II vanilla attempt at Scythe E3 map with no secrets"
Music: "Bye Bye American Pie" by Bobby Prince
Build Time: Around 7-8 hours build and testing over 3 evenings.
Textures: "Stock. I wanted to change the sky but it's been a long time since
          I added textures and I've forgotten how to."
          "EDIT: Now with Plutonia E2 sky. It was bothering me."

"Happy Birthday Dime, hope you have a blast!" -purist

MAP08: Doom
       [Yes, that really is the name of the map. No joke.]
Author: joe-ilya

              long to be one(not [sic] that long, mind you)"

MAP11: Dime's Red Canyon Birthday Blowout "(A.K.A. Scythe MAP22 Ripoff)"

Build Time: 6 days on and off
            "(hooray for Schoolwork and other IRL related stuff!)"
Music: "Postmodern Muck" By Jimmy
Textures: Red Sky by IMX, CC4 Tex, "and a few other textures blatantly stolen
          from Valiant by Skillsaw."

"Well, Here it is. Happy Birthday, Dime." -Breezeep

MAP32: Untitled
Author: MD922
Music: "Running from Evil" by Bobby Prince
       [used due to no music provided]

Unreachable without cheat codes or some other form of level warping because
it is almost impossible for even a seasoned speedrunner like Dime to complete
it without saved games.

Original posts for this level:
"I tried to follow all the themes, and I kinda followed the Scythe Maps22-24
 style but... you'll know what I mean soon." -MD922
"Since Dime wrote 'gameplay', I don't suppose that the maps need to be red or
 hell themed at all." -scifista42
"Ya, I could have been more specific on that point scifista, you don't need
 to limit yourself to pure redrock or even use it at all." -Dime
"Heh, I thought you mean't style so my whole map is the same textures as map
 24. Whatever, here it is. [map link]" -MD922
"Not an issue MD!" -Dime
