This is the first of a series of .wads I am making. I'm going to divide this into three parts:
================================================================ Title : nosun.WAD Author : Malcolm Sailor Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : From E-mail messages about 3_pack1.zip Thanks. I needed that. <email removed>. something. I have one thing to say: cooool. -Rob doell (<email removed> I would greatly appreciate feedback on: ammo/health: there's more than I need but I know where everything is. difficulty: too easy/hard how much you loved it/hated it. .zips I have made: darker.zip: contains darker.wad, my first level 3_pack1.zip: contains ruler.wad, omelet.wad and tekrkbrn.wad, better than most stuff out there but nothing special ds-61-2.zip: contains seven high-quality maps alapolgy.wad: two very short levels fromdrem.wad: a very short level from a dream lab.wad: a high-tech lab boom.wad: a ghost-town. The first room is practically copied right out of dante's gate. It's good though. wasteme.wad: an untested (at point of release) wad. I left out the exit switch (blush). sinferno.wad: a okay hell wad. quikisgd.zip: one of my more recent releases. Short, high quality, and action packed. -...good, high quality level. Reminds me of e4m1 <email removed> Soon to come: Skull.zip: skull.wad for doom 1 DS-61-3.zip: update of ds-61-2.zip nosun2.zip: second of this series: the space ship at the end (oh, so that's what it was) My fav. wads: Raven.wad (you know it) Mtfactor.wad. It's incredible! get it now! Darkcvnt.wad. The best! Description : This is the first of a series of .wads I am making. I'm going to divide this into two parts: Story : 2090: some research station orbiting earth. "Um, professer," says a slave. "What," snarls a half-man half-ape that couldn't have passed grade school. "The heat on earth is gradually decreasing. Less light is coming this way each day. It appears the sun is going out." "That's impossible!" The professer kicks the slave. "Look for yourself!" Says the slave a little to quickly. "You know I can't read!" The slave recieves another kick. Another slave somewhere down the corridor rolls his eyes. The professer may have noticed yet is already shouting into his comlink to get someone "reputable" who _can_ read. The nextday, same place. "Welcome, Doctor appleberry." Says the apeman. What a stupid name, thinks the slave, whose name was recently changed to "shithead" by the professer. "Read this," says shithead. "Yes, he's right." Several weeks later, you, a prisoner of war, get called in your cell somewhere in one of the less habitible places on earth. (Pollution has destroyed nearly half the landcovered portion of the world, with North America a cesspool of burning waste. The ozone layer is so thin, 3 weeks of exposure throughout your life would kill you.) "You're going on a mission, you worthless piece of shit. You better not fail me this time. Three strikes and you're out." You remember failing your first two impossible missions and barely escaping with your life. "Go to room 3a960236548079b.5 for briefing at 3:00" (97% of earths population is now in prison.) At 3:00 you wander down the long hall way towards the room . "3a960236548079b.44, .46, .48, here we are." You say to yourself. One stray step and you would be toast: the walls are adorned with automatic plasma cannons and other weapons trained on your every move. You sigh and enter the room. "Hello, sit down." "Enough pleasantries. What mission have you got to kill me off this time?" "A mission to the sun. A few weeks ago we found out that the sun is giving off less and less heat so through the wonders of modern technology we sent some spies in" says the hitler lookalike. "They found some sort of alien space station that was somehow poisoning our sun. Once it burns out they know there will be no resistence from us, and they can take our solar systems resources for free." "Wait a minute," you say. "I know we can get to the sun, and build materials strong enough to resist its heat, but its gravity's too strong. How did you get this information. You can't even transmit off it, let alone fly a ship off." "Yes, but the aliens have much more advanced tech- nology than us. They snuck on a saucer headed away from us, and transmitted something off the ship. Yet the aliens found them immediately thereafter and, we believe, killed them. "Your ship will be on automatic pilot until you are too close to get away from the sun. There you will get on a saucer headed for their home planet. Then you will destroy their society from the inside out." "WHAT! YOU'RE CRAZY!" you shout. "We can kill you right here if you'd prefer." Layout : Large level. You start in some smaller hallways of the space station, find the blue and red keys and then jump out into a huge hallway where an old service train used to run. you follow its path over to some computer terminals. Then out to the surface of the sun (YES, I know it wouldn't have walls but how else was I supposed to do it.) | You get the yellow key and back to the beginning |\ | / where you exit the space station and into a docking | \ | / bay where you get on a ship. | \|/ I made special effort to make this a level with a | /|\ view. By that I mean not only great textures where | / | \ you are but also views into cool rooms that you can't |/ | \ get to (in most cases). | There are four secrets: two are hidden doors and two must be run to (over ledges etc.) One is only visible on the map (not marked), one contains an automap. And oh, yes, those marbfac4 posts at the beginning (for those of you who aren't level designers, the faces with horns on them) are switches. Anywhere outside hurts, whether you're in lava or not. Get a suit or an invulnerability before you go outside. Additional Credits to : Canada, Myself, iD, and the makers of dck. Without it, I would still be trying to close a sector in deu. ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : Map01 Single Player : Yes, built for it. No FUCKING (there did I piss off you yuppies yet) multiplayer switches. Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, Extra Monsters-not tested though Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, Extra Weapons, Closed off to a certain portion of the map -not tested though Difficulty Settings : Yes. Play it in UV for the full experience. New Sounds : No New Graphics : No. Just imagine the sky is whatever it would look like on the sun. Or if you have dante's gate and dck you can add dante's gate to your list of textures and then play and it will have a starry sky which looks a lot better. Demos Replaced : None * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Build Time : I would guess 10 hours. I have noticed that a lot of people design levels in forty hours that I design in ten and there is a reason: choice of level editor. Dck works with speed yet hides nothing from you. You mat have noticed that this is a ridiculous time for this size of level but it went by _very_ fast Editor(s) used : Dck 3.4, by far the very best editor. Try it, it kicks deus (and all the others) ass. Read the docs. Known Bugs : nah! Body count: | f | f | i | h | a | m | a | s | c | c | r | h | b | | h | h | m | | r | a | r | p | a | b | e | w | a | | t | s | p | k | c | n | a | e | c | r | v | d | r | ----------------------------------------------------- |11 |14 |27 |16 | 3 | 1 | 7 |11 | 3 | 3 | 5 |11 | 7 | This mightt change: the level isn't _completely_ through playtesting as I type fht and fhs: former human trooper and sergeant. imp: obvious enough. h k: hell knight arc: arch-vile man: mancubus ara: arachnotrons spe: spectre cac: cacodemon cbr: cyber demon (don't worry about it, it's easy enough) rev: revenants bar: barons of hell hwd: heavy weapons dude These are for ultra violence In the map there are: 524 sectors 400 things 2002 vertices 2492 linedefs 3786 sidedefs * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY use this level as a base to build additional levels.
