Windy Beach Deathmatch v1.0
Description
Another concept DM WAD for Heretic, this map is the pseudo-sequel to SMKHDM.WAD. For some reason, the level in Doom2 titled 'Barrels of Fun' is a classic, and not because of level design. I guess it's simply for the fact that blowing stuff up IS fun! So, after noticing that the exploding Pods in Heretic can be carried by wind currents, I decided to take advantage of this and design a level around the idea. So what you have is a central arena with a central sniping area, with Pods circling below due to the wind. Skill levels are setup so that on Easy, there won't be anything except you and your opponents. On Medium and Hard, the Pods come out in force and swarm the middle of the map. Also on Hard, a few Undead Knights and Gargoyles populate the outer areas, setting off explosions when their projectiles hit some of the Pods. If any of these things annoys you, just play on Easy. There are 8 Firemaces in this level, and that is because of the way the Heretic engine handles that weapon. It will randomly appear in one of the 8 locations, so remember that it won't always be in the same spot when it respawns. This means that when you play there will be only ONE in the map at any given time. To exit the map, you need to press at least two of the switches in the central building and then walk into the teleporter. Why is there an Invulnerability Ring in the exit portal you may ask? To give the person who leaves a nice goodie for the next level is why! Note that since this level is E6M2, you'll need to use the warp code (engage), or the '-warp' command line parameter to get to it. The background music is 'Popcorn', one of the earliest techno-style songs and appropriate since you'll be popping pods. :)

Description             : Another concept DM WAD for Heretic, this map is the
                          pseudo-sequel to SMKHDM.WAD. For some reason,
                          the level in Doom2 titled 'Barrels of Fun' is a
                          classic, and not because of level design. I guess
                          it's simply for the fact that blowing stuff up IS
                          fun!

                          So, after noticing that the exploding Pods in
                          Heretic can be carried by wind currents, I decided
                          to take advantage of this and design a level
                          around the idea. So what you have is a central
                          arena with a central sniping area, with Pods
                          circling below due to the wind.

                          Skill levels are setup so that on Easy, there won't
                          be anything except you and your opponents. On Medium
                          and Hard, the Pods come out in force and swarm the
                          middle of the map. Also on Hard, a few Undead Knights
                          and Gargoyles populate the outer areas, setting off
                          explosions when their projectiles hit some of the
                          Pods. If any of these things annoys you, just play
                          on Easy.

                          There are 8 Firemaces in this level, and that is
                          because of the way the Heretic engine handles that
                          weapon. It will randomly appear in one of the 8
                          locations, so remember that it won't always be in
                          the same spot when it respawns. This means that when
                          you play there will be only ONE in the map at any
                          given time.

                          To exit the map, you need to press at least two of
                          the switches in the central building and then walk
                          into the teleporter. Why is there an Invulnerability
                          Ring in the exit portal you may ask? To give the
                          person who leaves a nice goodie for the next level
                          is why!

                          Note that since this level is E6M2, you'll need to
                          use the warp code (engage), or the '-warp' command
                          line parameter to get to it.

                          The background music is 'Popcorn', one of the
                          earliest techno-style songs and appropriate
                          since you'll be popping pods. :)

Known Bugs              : If you play this map with the original Heretic.exe
                          and not a source port, you may experience some
                          sprite flicker when destroying the Pods. This cannot
                          be helped as it's an engine limitation. If it
                          annoys you, play on Easy so the Pods don't spawn.
