To be fair it's actually closer to 4 years of development. Basically nothing from the mod before then still exists. It is still a crazy long time, though.

Time is odd.

I'm not sure what you mean. They're both the same thing.

Just regular Doom. Look behind you at the start of level 1

All our easter eggs are behind the player spawn in world 1-1. You get infinite lives and a chainsaw. [Citation Needed]

Heh, this is a last safe-haven before a very, very dark chapter. I'm going to allow the player to have a bit of comforting light at this stage ^_^

There are thirty maps. If you spend an average of seven minutes per map (I'd estimate between 5 and 10 is realistic) you're looking at three and a half hours. Speed runners will probably be able to more than half that, and those who like to smell the roses will probably be looking at closer to five hours (10 minutes per map)

It would be quite challenging to install - this is two floors underground.

Ah, tracked down the bsp. I'm afraid nothing resembling that version exists in the mod - that bsp is almost five years old since the VIS blocker DEV texture predates even this screenshot:
Moddb.com

It is, well spotted! However, it's probably not actually going to appear in The Core. I made the map for one of the rotating signs seen around the facility and just needed a quick backdrop to show off Commander Logan, so I re-used it here.
We'll see - it wouldn't be too much work to flesh this out into a playable space, but there's just not much need for it.

Here's what the map was originally used for:

Hi Toasty, we're not making any special considerations to speed runners, so there will definitely be exploits to be found. That said, we're not deliberately adding any skips, so you'll have to get creative! :)

Urby's camera broke as he was recording, so we've got a slight delay. Within two weeks!

You've got about a week to ask! Sorry, I should have set a definite date.
You can ask multiple questions, but we might not answer all of them depending on time :)
