Map # replaced          :    Episode 3, Map 3:  Doom I only
=============================================================================                             

LEVEL DESCRIPTION:

RIVER33.wad is extremely large, and a VERY difficult map to complete, even
on God mode.  The map requires a "search-every-nook-and-cranny" attitude,
and will take alot of time to finish.  There are alternate ways of finishing
the map, but ultimately the user's best bet is to get ahold of all the keys.

Upon finding the exit, the user may realize that the switch is a 2-sided
linedef with a false texture, viewable from only ONE side--a feat that I'VE 
never seen on any other DOOM patch-wads.  Not really a big deal, but it was
kind of a fun idea.

RIVER33.wad is about 260K; larger than the editor I used itself (DEU 5.21).

Don't get lost. :)

Available where?        : --> WCARCHIVE.CDROM.EDU (?)          
                           at Doom directory
                             
                          --> WUARCHIVE.WUSTL.EDU

=============================================================================

Interesting  :    * A sewer spans the diameter of the entire map, and 
 Features           provides a few interesting secrets.
                  
                  * Over 2000 linedefs, 3000 Sidedefs, and 350 Sectors
                    to romp, stomp, crawl, run and backtrack through.

                 ** Just starting the level will knock your socks off when
                    you realize what is happening.  ;)

                  * Almost an episode in itself.
                  
                  * Sectors are placed in certain ways to create the illusion
                    that there are sectors on top of sectors (which cannot
                    occur in DOOM)
                  
                  * Alternate solutions to map.  There is more than three of
                    every key in the map.

                 ** The Imp Tower is fun to sabotage; let's just hope you get
                    there before they teleport to you.  ;)

                  * Possibility of achieving each and EVERY Weapon 
                    offered in game, on both DEATHMATCH & 1-player mode:

                  * Over 450 objects total in River33.wad!
                    (That's including decorations, creatures, teleport exits,
                     and the like... don't worry; there AREN'T 450 Cacos!!)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Time allotted for       :       30-40 hours (really).  I just can't let myself
creation of map                 put a crappy patch wad on the net, so I spend
                                the time to make it spectacular.  (Yes, I
                                still work 8-5!)

                                It's definitely a keeper!  Enjoy it!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Special thanks to the creators of DEU 5.21, IDBSP, and BSP1.1x--all of
   these are really wonderful for making workable, interesting DOOM levels
