I've never created a Wolfenstein3D mod, and I haven't played the game in several years. What I do is create annotated supplements to some of the mods I've played.
Here are the games I annotated, with download links where you can get them. Note that these files are in a 4shared dot com online storage account that will be automatically purged in November, 2021, but I can reupload them after that:

These links are blocked on this site, but if you want these files, you can copy/ paste theme to a different browser window.
Some of these are more complete than others, depending on when I played the games, (the last one I did was in 2008).
The rar archives contain all game files from the original .zip file, plus the following:
1) Saved games at the end of floors, with 100% health, ammo and weapons.
2) Saved games at secret elevators.
3) Saved games when encountering a Boss.
4) Strategy notes for some games.
5) Saved html web pages for the maps from Spear: Resurrection.
6) A detailed story for The Final Fight.
These .rar archives were originally made for sharing on eMule.
Wherever possible, I try to kill all opponents with The Knife
Here's how they can best be used:
If you're playing one of these games, it's helpful to be able to leisurely walk through a completed floor with all opponents killed, so see where the end elevator is in relation to the start, to see the locations of secret rooms, to see the types and volume of opponents you will encounter, and the places where they can best be killed. You'll also see where ammo is available, other than from a killed opponent.
If you want to play a specific floor from one of these games, open the saved game from the end of the previous floor, then start. (I often play the PacMan floor from Spear:Resurrection).
If you just want to fight the Bosses, you can do that, without having to complete all the previous floors.
If you want to play for the par time, without regard for health or ammo conservation, you can do that, without having to save a game in progress.
I completed floor 16 in Project: Eisenritter, which is VERY difficult. The Annotations.txt file tells you how I did it.
My computer with Windows XP was hacked in January, 2017, but my geek at the repair shop is in the process of loading a computer for me with XP to my specifications, (Service Packs 1 and 2 only). I plan to stockpile several computers like this, which will not be connected to the Internet. Several apps I use regularly only work with Windows o/s prior to Vista, and it's becoming more difficult to find computers that have motherboards compatible with XP. I may be able to introduce some younger people to Wolfenstein3D, and to some of the great software from the past which doesn't work on the computers with which they are familiar.
I don't know if I will annotate any additional games, but I won't rule it out.
