=========================================================================== Title : MISSOURI RAT LIGHT (01ratlte.wad) NOTE : This is a DeathMatch wad for the newer versions of Doom 1......... or................. The Ultimate Doom..................... It will not work with Doom II......... without converting. Date Finished : 4/8/96 Author : Daniel Huff Email Address : nextday @qni.com Description : Highly addictive Doom I or The Ultimate Doom, DeathMatch level Good mix of open spaces, hallways, teleporters and lifts. Lots of invisible walls, and traps. There are lights in the corners of the court yard, that tell you in what general part of the building to look for your enemy! Single-barrel shotgun close to all starting points; access to better weapons are at a higher-risk, depending on where your enemy is..... Watch your back! The BFG and Plasma gun are harder to get, with considerable risk involved. On skill level (1-2), which only has shotguns, chainsaws and the chaingun, .....the chaingun is difficult to get. The backpack is available on all skill levels. Note 2 : This is a large wad; but it runs very fast! Also note that, all weapon hits show on all the walls! (Including the pistol !!!) You might want to study how I did this!; It is also the secret to fast playing wads! (This wad plays as fast as most wads one-fourth its size!) Additional Credits to : The makers of DOOM, the best game ever made! : Emmanuel D. and Sebastien C. the authors of 4towers.wad =========================================================================== New level WAD : NO..(based on 4towers.wad by Emmanuel D. and Sebastien C. *** a very fine wad available from cdrom.com) * Play Information * 01ratlte.wad file size : 204022 bytes Map # : e1m5 Single Player : Yes (Just to do recon,***highly recommended***.)

I offer the following: (Not a new idea; I've heard of others doing the same.) 1. Use this wad as a base to build your own wad, (I encourage you to to so; Don't even ask me!; just change it, - anyway you want. Distribute it any- where and everywhere, and in any format you want, for profit or for free!. And also, I challange all other wad authors to do the same!, (after all, the majority of us don,t get paid for making wads anyway!; so not letting anyone use your wad as a base, is really just an ego trip;---Isn't it? !!!). ...............Too Bad--So Sad!!.................. At least beginners would have a good place to start; then mabe we won't have to wade through as many bad wads, to find the good ones! This concept should eventually make all the wads offered, on the Net, better. 2. After you have completed your new wad, (using mine as a base), put your name on it, take full credit for it! -You don't need to mention my name anywhere, (but I would be happy if you did so, in your text file; but it's not manditory!) Just remember, your new wad will have your name on it, so just make sure its better than mine!, or else what's the point!!!!! 3. If you want different weapons placement or different monsters, in different places, I would encourage you to download ED209, (probably the easiest wad editor to use, to change, weapons, monsters and textures). (You can do most of the weapons and monster changes in less than 5 minutes!). - If you noticed, I also used a program called Zennode. Zennode is not needed to build or change wads, it just helps to speed up the wad a little. --- All of these fine programs are available, as Shareware, many places on the Net. 4. If your wad has any bugs, even just a small one, that's hard to find, even if your looking for a mistake, then, don't put it on the Net!. Fix it first, or get some help to fix it, or delete it!!!. People can forgive you for making boring wads once in a while, but not defective, ugly, trash. (I go over my wads in great detail before releasing them; we also play test em for weeks, sometimes months, working on the layout, weapons and monsters, ect. I would be totally ashamed of some of the garbage that's on the Net, if my name was attached to it. You have to be a perfectionist, to produce even a boring wad that works good, without bugs; even a bad wad takes a little time and effort to make, so why go to all the time and trouble........... to produce garbage!!!! You may distribute 01ratlte.wad, provided you include this text file, (01ratlte.txt), with no modifications to 01ratlte.wad or 01ratlte.txt. You may distribute 01ratlte.wad, in any electronic format, (bbs, diskette, cd, etc), as long as you include this text file, (01ratlte.txt) intact and unmodified with 01ratlte.wad. If you combine 01ratlte.wad with other wads, this text file, (01ratlte.txt), must be included with the new combo wad or wads. (c) Copyright, 4-8-96 Daniel Huff <email removed>
