================================================================ Title : Avatar Collection #1 Author : Mackey McCandlish Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : Author of the One Must Fall strategy guide. Creator of DOOM MUST FALL (DOOM total conversion patch), Diversions playtester. Look for me in #DOOM in IRC as _Avatar_. Description : 5 great Deathmatch specific levels, each well tested and including not only great technique but great amounts of texture alignment, too. Additional Credits to : The DEU team, of course, and Brian Hess for helping me test it. Additional credits go to the #doom IRC gang. Specifically: Funkyboss, Slug, Scooby, ViDiOt, and NoSkill. ================================================================ * Play Information * AVATAR1.WAD Episode and Level # : MAP02 - MAP06 so you can start on level 1 and play to map7 (5 new dmatch levels plus 2 classics). Single Player : Yes, good for practicing, I suppose. These are Deathmatch levels though! Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, but only if its 2 on 2 deathmatch style cooperative. Deathmatch 2-4 Player : This is what they're MEANT for! Rocks!! Difficulty Settings : Yes! Very important: Practice in one player on skills 3-5, but if you're gonna Deathmatch someone, up the skill to 4 (5's the best!) and take on your friends while a Stomper or two pick you off from the distance! I can guarantee you won't be stopping for breath! (As with all in the Avatar1 series, skill 1 is left without monsters New Sounds : Naw.. New Graphics : Not too much. A sky texture here, level name graphic there, and maybe a couple indications of exactly who the author is. Demos Replaced : An LMP of all 5, as Avatar1.LMP, recorded with FunkyBoss (Wendigo made one with me too, but that was before I knew the "-timer" function wasn't saved in lmps:) * Comments * Quick rundown on the levels: Headache: Great 2 player level that can work in either AltDeath or DeathMatch. Has a trip-wire warning system for the SS, in case you didn't notice.. Gr8Bridg: Best with 4 players, this is the most technique filled level. You can do a lot of cool things that might not be obvious.. Fragman: Every author has one.. you can't HELP but frag the hell out of each other in this one. Temple: More of a hunting level than the others, but it has its moments. CASA!: Remotely like Temple and Fragman combined, this one keeps players together, but requires a little more skill to get around. Standard features of each level: A line of symmetry (or two) Nomonsters on skill 1 or 2 Regular monsters on skill 3 Cyberdemon (and sometimes an Archvile, too) on skill 5 An out-of-the-way exit, marked simply with an exit wall texture.. Oodles of texture alignment Prepackaged coolness * Construction * Base : Varied.. 2 hours average, but the texture alignment on Casa (map06) took an hour by itself. Build Time : 3 weeks or so. Editor(s) used : DEU5.21GC!!! Yes, besides for the floors (done all with WADED), this WAD was made completely with good old "DOOM 1 only" DEU5.21 with some creative use of WAD1to2. Known Bugs : None, and the textures are aligned well. (Okok, there's a LITTLE bit of HOM on Gr8Bridg, but I slashed the heck outa that level to cut it down majorly. * Copyright / Permissions * You MAY distribute this WAD, provided you include this file, with no modifications.
