    Best Mods/Mapsets in Last 2 Years

    Post by Dark_wizzie on Sat Jun 01, 2013 4:43 am

    Hi.
    I have not been playing a lot of Wolf3d mods/mapsets recently. Can somebody offer a small and concise list of what they think are the best mods/mapsets released in the last 2 years? No, don't list every other mod out because I won't have time to play it all.

    Cheers! afro

    Where is WolfForever!!??!?!?!?!

    Right here. Look to the left. Very Happy

    Last couple of months I've been playing mostly DooM, little Wolfenstein.

    However starting from 1/1/2011, the best mods (as in, games with significant modifications to the original experience) are probably Guns & Glory 0.5, Eisenfaust Origins, and Stealth.

    As for mods with some code changes but still the general original feel/gameplay, probably Wolfenstein Sextilogy SDL, BMSE 10-year Anniversary Edition, 15 New Ones, Time to Kill, and maybe Iron Dream are good choices.

    For stuff with very minimal or no code changes (i.e. just mapsets), try the DHW SDL Wolf3D and SoD mapsets, This Spear SDL, 10 New Ones, Thomas' Wolfenstein 3D, Desperate Measures Episodes 1+2, Ipank7000's Wolf3D Mapset, and SoD Extreme.

    It was a joke, my name is to the left of the post on the screen. Very Happy

    But anyways I've edited the post to actually list what should be at least a good majority of my recommendations. I haven't played all of them but I have at least looked at them.

    Another reason to check out G&G 0.5 if you haven't already is the walkthrough I've been putting up for it. Today I'll be putting up map 9, in case you're interested.
    Otherwise, I'd go with what WolfForever has suggested. All of those sets seemed pretty nifty by my standards.

    I played Eisenfaust a long time ago. It was very good, the secret sphere thing kept me going around each level trying to find everything. But I never did. >.> Some of the locked levels are quite different, good change of pace.

    I haven't gotten an update from Mega Luigi for a few months nor I intend to ask him for one. Haven't played any Wolf3d since the Trail of Schabbs SDL Demo. It's all Serious Sam for me and their mods.

    Once Mario Maniac and Mega Luigi get their mod done, my interest for Wolf3d will come back.

    Thought I'd do a bump to cover this year so far (only new releases):

    Mods:
    Federal Cases: TC
    False Spear SDL (included because it's far more than a straight conversion)
    Bound (it's a mod automatically because the gameplay is so dramatically different - doesn't matter about wall, texture, sprite changes, etc.)

    Mapsets:
    SoD Extreme (limits are removed, but still a mapset at heart)
    Ipanks' Spear of Destiny
    SS - Castle Lost
    SDL4Hell demo (first episode)
    Strife II

    Haven't played the mods but my favorite mapsets are definitely the Spear ones (Extreme and Ipank's). Lots and lots of good not new stuff now playable in SDL this year though as well. All Thomas' older works (except not sure yet if ATAW3D is official though), all Barry Christian's works, all Gary Ragland's works, Golden Episodes, and finally the continuation of Bucksnort/DTrade/Harry Sr. in SDL.

    Well I just took count: 52 old mods converted to SDL year to date. And I belive only one or two of them could already have previously been played as intended without DOSBox. Let's hope things keep going! Smile

    I've been slowly playing The False Spear SDL.
    I skimmed through Ipank's Sod mapset. Smile

    How did Ipank's SoD look? I've played it all and must say I really enjoyed it. Very challenging on hard as well! Is his Wolf3D mapset as good or no?

    It's pretty nice, level 18 was pretty challenging starting with pistol 8 rounds.
