================================================================ Title : E1 MAP01 Filename : nb_e1m01.zip (nb_e1m01.txt and nb_e1m01.wad) Author : Nick Baker Email Address : <email removed> Description : The short version: E1M1 done MAP01 style. The longer version: I'm not sure where I got the idea from exactly, but I decided I'd have a go at recreating the original Doom E1M1 in the style of Doom 2 MAP01. In that I think I've succeeded, although there is a little bit more detail in this than the original levels of either Doom 1 or 2, and I couldn't resist using a couple of new flats in places. After I'd finished the layout, I realise I might as well have ago at improving the gameplay a bit. After all, I know it's the easiest setting, but a grand total of FOUR enemies on I'm Too Young To Die? Now there's 19 on this setting, 32 on medium and 47 on hard. DM has also been given a fair bit of consideration, and you should find it plays considerably differently than Doom E1M1. Perhaps the most important difference is that the central outdoor area now serves as a crossroads rather than a dead end. BTW, listen closely and even the E1M1 music has been slightly changed to more closely match the music from MAP01. Ditto for the sky. This version fixes a couple of bugs, such as tutti fruit on some steps and a room where it was possible to get permanently trapped. Addition Credits to: ID Software for E1M1 and MAP01.
