    Back after 7 years...

    Post by vaultkeeper on Mon Aug 18, 2008 10:42 am

    Guten Tag,

    Not sure who all will remember me, but I was the owner of the Wolfenstein 3-D Vault and creator of several mods back in the 1998-2000 era, Armageddon (1999) and Road to Neuschwanstein (2000) being my most notable ones. Yes, I am from an era when Mapedit was the preferred editor and changing the EXE required a hex editor. People were raving over Gary's Schabbs 2000, and Brian Rowan had just released Project Totengraeber, one of the first to truly utilize the source code and possibly the best Wolfenstein 3D mod I have ever played.

    Anyways, in case anybody hasn't seen in Dome News, I am back and am working on a new mod called Wolfenstein Forever. As of now, it is planned to be a 35 level mod with a storyline centered around assassinating Hitler. There will be a few source code changes, but as before, my specialty is level design and re-creating the feel and atmosphere ID captured us with. There are 6 levels completed thus far.

    With the Vault long gone, I plan on putting up a new website soon, though I don't yet know how extensive or when Ill get around to doing it. Anyways, it feels great to be back. Btw, I still prefer Mapedit for designing levels though FloEdit II is a godsend for everything else.

    Welcome VaultKeeper. Just like you I have been out of the Wolf3d scene for a while. 13 or so years for me. I also used the very first mapedit when it originally came out. I would make new levels and my friend would play them. So I was amazed to see all the new editors and all the changes to the source code done in these past years! I am an "oldschool" wolfer like you. However, I really like some of the changes ppl have made to the game. The mod (my first officially) I am making now has many source code changes, but still has the "oldschool" feel to it. Looking forward to trying yours out when it is completed.

    Oh, and because of you, I am no longer the newest member of this forum. Thanks! And....you've come to the right place. Everybody here has been real helpful and friendly!

    Interesting preference for Domination. That was my first "decent" add-on I did back in 1998 and is where I really started striving for realism in my maps. If anybody has played my first sets, Wolf3d_60 or The Lost Fortress you know what I mean.

    That other Wolf3D Vault is not mine. The banner from 2001 is from my version of the Vault. I might reuse it.
