WAD in progress. All information about it you can find on my page (in blogs). May be not so much details, but i'll try to give a main news about development.

Hey, sorry if you keep getting mugged with this question, but when are we gonna get news about the update?

Unfortunately, update will be only when i will finish last map. I think, no sense to give people little fixes and 1-map updates, because playing same levels again, again and again is bad decision. Anyway, 24th and 25th maps were finished and finally i can work with map26

Why so long? Well, i don't want to jump on same rake. Also, all ideas somewhere deep in my head and sometimes i need time to "extract" them.

So, no need think that i'll stop doing this map-pack. My
subconscious never give me that chance :)

Wow, well aside form finishing 4 more maps, are you gonna revamp the old ones like you said, or do you think its good the way it is?, map 07 was pretty good in my eyes, map 11 was pretty good, but if you don't think so, then take your time ok. I am loving this wad, and I wonder what map 30 would be like, I know what ever you do I will support it, but maybe change map 30 into more of a battle?, with mouselook and all, would it be a good idea to "Force" the player to fight the demons for a while?, just an idea, you are damn good at making wads, so whatever you do, I will play it. Sorry if I am being a major fan-boy, but this is a good megawad so far. Have a very safe day

Actually, it's not real number of downloads. I have extra download link (on cloud service) and there i have more then 600 downloads. In summary, real number somewhere 800 or more.

Anyway, about feelings, i really glad to see, that people give attention to my project. Actually, it's best reward for me.

I am sorry if these comments are getting out of hand, but I have a question. What is you're inspiration for making this Megawad, and do you enjoy making it? And since you have 4 maps to go (I think), what is the hardest map that you made, or are going to make. And also on the scale of % on how complete it is, what do you think what % is it at...not asking you for a release date cause they can cause some problems. The waiting will be worth it, but my guess is that the hardest maps you are going is map 29 & 30. Once again I am sorry if you are keep getting asked the same questions over and over again, I am looking forward to the Megawad and hope it's fun for you to. Have a very safe day

For this megawad, i use different sources of my imagination. Sometimes something from dreams, sometimes from random ideas, etc. Do i enjoy? After some years of bad projects and problems in different spheres, I finally found my sense in this. I'm fully in this project and i can't hate it or something else. May be because it's a part of my soul.

About percentage, it's really hard to make it, because sometimes i need fix previous maps (and of course i can't find problems instantly, i need play to it again, again and again... and ideas coming not instantly too). For example, i fixed a not-logical places and buildings on original maps, but somewhere i jumped on the same rake, and only now i have noticed it. So, fix by fix = step by step back. But, not all is bad. One step back is two step forward. I have already ideas for new maps and fixes for old maps (believe, it's much better then nothing). Anyway, i'm perfectionist (or kind of this) and I don't want do "quickie" maps. Also, except this project, i have a different problems outside. I mean, sometimes i even can't to do something (no time or no inspiration).

So, i understand, that waiting it is torture, but unfortunately i can't connect my imagination to my PC... I doing all via damn hands :)

Thank you for the reply, speaking of bugs there is this one bug that sometimes the all of the lights just go off. Sometimes it goes off and comes back on, and sometimes it stays that way for the entire level, I think it's a problem with the GZDoom 2.1.1. I also use Project Brutality to, have you came across this problem before?, and also sorry if I seemed a bit pushy about the status of the wad, I believe this is a Cacoward worthy wad when it's finished. (Edit) the light levels are all on 1 just FYI

Hm... sounds strange. Do you use dev-build of GZdoom (i mean beta version of GZDoom which called SVN-build)? Some SVN versions of GZDoom working unstable and can glitch lights (especially lights on 3D floors).

P.S: I played with PB mod, but really first time hear about this bug. I need repeat this bug, for taking some measures. So, try use another version of GZDoom, may be it will help.

Found strange problem on forums. looks like same:

I am now using the stable GZDoom 2.1.1, I have some screenshots of the issue, I also have the UDV Addon and the PB Overhaul addon, without the Overhaul the bug still happens.

I've only created an account today after two weeks of lurking on this forum and trying out map packs and megawads, and I'm glad I now have an account here, because I feel I must thank you for this remaster.

I've been playing this for a while now, with Project Brutality v2.03 and a custom set of wads and pk3s in ZDL, and suffice to say, it became one of my favourite DOOM megawads and mods.

It's so visually stunning, and the environments are re-done so well that level transition is a lot more logical and they're beautifully linked together, and a lot of environmental elements now make much more sense.

The core element of this megawad's beauty, is how beautifully the lighting was done. Dynamic all the way, and the diffuse sets a whole new standard. Coupled with the lens distortion effect within Project Brutality's settings, this thing is pure beauty.

Being a veteran DOOM player myself, I've even struggled through various maps in this megawad, simply because it transcends the original HellOnEarth to a completely new level of visuals.

Today I've had the pleasure of IDCLEVing through the last pack of levels just to explore more visuals before posting my comment, in an attempt to help pinpoint some of the bugs so that they can be fixed in a later date.

On a side note, the jumpscare effect on the last level was so ******* well done. I loved it. First time ever, in an original-looking DOOM megawad. (I won't count the crappy "horror" terrywads I've tried before because, well, they just don't compare to this).

So far, I've run up against these:

- In "Underhalls" (map2), if you drop a grenade down the passageways where the blue key is, it will lag heavily with all the enemies, barrels, and water popping particles all at once.

- In "Underhalls" (map2), the first problems with water appeared: you can jump much higher while in water (and this happens in every map that has water). Also, when you hold jump, you walk on water Jesus Christ mode XD

- In "Circle of Destruction" (map11) and "Tenements" (map17) and "Catacombs" (map22) and "The Chasm" (map24) and "Monster Condo"(map27) and "Icon of Sin"(map30), the toxic pools didn't render, the liquid isn't seen. Maybe I missed a bit more misrendering detail in other maps. And in "Gotcha!" (map20), not sure if something was supposed to render in the starting area, or it's supposed to be dry ground.

- In "Barrels o Fun" (map23), I'm experiencing heavy lag around all the barrels in the starting area. Upon exploding them all, the lag disappears. In the second area after the first teleport, it's the opposite: I don't have lag pre-explosion, the lag starts with the explosions. And in the open area with the chaingunners, the lava didn't render, the liquid isn't seen.

These aren't game-breaking bugs by any means, and it's completely understandable, seeing as I'm using a custom set of wads and pk3s, they obviously had an effect on the megawad; and I'm using GZDoom v.2.3.9999, which you pointed out has problems rendering liquids through various levels, since a lot of liquid requires a specific version of GZDoom. Not to mention, you already stated this megawad has bugs with Project Brutality, and that there's another version for the newer GZDoom releases.

Other than that, my experience with this megawad has been an astonishing ride through a very refreshing HellOnEarth, and it easily became a new favourite. Keep up the stellar work! I, for one, would like to see, and play, another remaster from you! This is too good to miss, and deserves a lot more attention than it currently has.
