Being famous was not really your wildest dream. The psychological presure got too high -even higher than being blasted 20 feet across a room by an incoming rocket- and you needed to escape; escape the boring and stressing real world. You asked the remaining management of the UAC to find you a hard job among ordinary people, who had not really had much contact to the outside world through the last few years, so that you could put your past behind you and occupy yourself with something totally different than blasting monster limbs through a hallway. Luckyly a mine in the mountains was going to be expanded by drilling from the west side of a mountain towards the excisting east mine. They needed new workers and you were given a job. Even though the UAC could not really understand what a highly decora- ted and famous marine (and world saviour) wanted in a dirty ol´ mine. However they let you go and gave you the job. The work was everything you needed: solitude, dirty talking and hard sweaty work. After a couple of weeks, which fully satisfied your needs, you notised that the Employer always carried a red key on him and he never left it out of sight, much to your suspicion. And sometimes he used it to access the control room in the mines. That was not really the weird thing, the weird thing was the secret door you once saw him enter! And how come the east mine was a restricted area. Something was going on behind these rocky walls and it was not digging. This mine was not only a bit of lava and a rusty drill. One day, when you were out breathing some fresh air, a terrible and thundering quake shivered the earth under your feet and numerous screams reached you from within the mine. Something was very wrong, very very wrong. You grap your sidearm and cannot help relating your present feelings to past experiences. And now you come to think of it, you once heard from a drunk security guard from the UAC, at one of the numerous parties celebrating your heroic homecoming, that the UAC were still conducting the same experiments, which lead to the alien invasion of Earth, at some moun- tain top in the desert. Of course he was drunk, so you took no notice of his babbling. However, now it all made sence. YOU were on THAT mountain. And it is a cooinsidence the fact that YOU are on that mountain sent there by that UAC? Does the east mine at all exist? Whatever the answer might be, a closer look might be the only thing left to do. And actually, you were getting bored with working a drill and a shovel. The silent, but steady sound of growling and mumbling makes you silently, yet firm and determined say to yourself: "Lets make that trigger hot again..." ================================================================ Play notes: My eleventh wad. Made for Final Doom: Evilution P.S. The level is best played in 640x480 from the DOOM95 launcher from WIN 32 bit. The shading looks best in this mode. Aaaannnd......You really must try playing Zdoom or GlDoom! YOU SIMPLY MUST! That s... really gives the game a kick in the a..! Pheeew! The screenshot(-s) for this level are taken in Zdoom. A rather large level. Tech, high/low, changing areas and very close to TNT´s own levels in Evilution. I believe that you can use all sorts of different textures and still keep a logical and harmonic feeling in the level without destroying it. It goes especially for a level like this where it has to look manmade. However, I have not used ALL textures! Skulls on a marble wall and red hot stonewalls does not really go well together with computerscreens and techlights! Note how I have chosen to make the exit! I have not invented the idea myself, though! ================================================================ Other wads by me: 1.The Revenge of Avind (avind.wad) 2.The Blessed Hex (blessed.wad) 3.The Unknown Chasm (chasm.wad) 4.Quail (quail.wad) All above mentioned levels in my series Doom 3: Ad Infernos (inferno.wad) 0.Fat Mushkins Lavapit (Modified level 01 of DOOM2) (lavapit.wad) 5.Star Trek: Voyager "A time to face your fears" (voyager.wad) 6.The Aqueous Rise and Fall (Final Doom: Plutonia) (aqueous.wad) 7.UAC Nukage Processing Area (Final Doom: Plutonia) (waste1.wad) 8.Star Trek: Voyager "Antithesis" (Final Doom: TNT) (voyage1.wad) 9.Fait Accompli (Final Doom: Plutonia) (gothic.wad) 10.
