The Adminn_1 level template 1.0

Adminn_1 on May 21st 2019

Screen_shot_2019-05-21_at_4

This is a map-making template I made and have used to make many of my maps, consisting entirely of 1WU square walls. All the lines are drawn, and all you need to do is use the paint tool in Weland to fill in the square polygons. This can be a very efficient way to create maps in a sort of block-based Minecraft/Wolfenstein 3D fashion, especially for beginner mappers, and you can find creative ways to work within these bounds at any skill level.

Marathon: Shadervoid - The Labyrwraths of Growth 1.0

Adminn_1 on May 21st 2019

Disclaimer and Credits

Please note that this is a hybrid scenario. I take no credit for any of its custom content beyond level design, the opening text, and the title screen logo and subtext. All other credit goes to the creators of Project Conflict (for the enemies), Mararthon: Yuge (for textures), Female Bob Shapes, Marathon: Pathways Into Darkness (for scenery), Tempus Irae (for scenery), Rubicon (for scenery), Damage, Inc. (for scenery), Weland (for the menu screen), the logo in the title screen, Hardcore Sounds, Hardestcore Sounds, common use movie sounds, and some sounds I took off YouTube.

Introduction

With a new cast of enemies based on edits of RadBurn’s Project Conflict mod, Marathon: Shadervoid is a brutalist, structuralist, and continuously-mapped-for take on Marathon gameplay that takes place in a strange other dimension and deals thematically with humans’ war with themselves. Released here with two levels (one an introduction) and meant to have many more individual levels made for it over time, it is intended as an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of a certain efficiency-based level design formula, and infused with a kind of uncanny Lynchian horror never before seen in Marathon.

Plot

“Humanity is currently living in deep strain under the horrid reign of the Tribecom regime and their Erosion Task Force enforcers. Somewhere and in spite of this, a secret grassroots research and development organization has formed called Inteflow Enterprises, specializing in dimensional travel technology. They eventually find and access a dimension for the first time — a strange one consisting entirely of oddly arranged colorless block units, which are distinguished by varying light shades and appear to be carved out of a great void that mixes with liftable “door-like” blocks, earning it the nickname The Shadervoid. Its exact nature, and the source of its constructions, remain unknown; yet it is technically habitable with no sign of other life, and IE hope at least to learn from it and use it as some kind of refuge spot. As such, a team of members begin setting up and testing machinery near teleportation spots in several different parts of The Shadervoid, all while keeping communication signals with other crewmembers in their original world. However, at one point, signals mysteriously start to become intercepted, and the environment within The Shadervoid reportedly begins to falter in some respects, making teleportation problematic. Eventually, all signals are abruptly cut off. You, a guerilla fighter in the precinct that IE is based out of, decide with some fellow fighters to grab some arms and teleport into The Shadervoid to check on the crewmembers “just in case”. Yet there’s some sort of malfunction, and you black out.

When you finally wake up, alone…”

[XS] From Alcatraz with Love 1.0

Staff0 on May 7th 2019

Fromalcatrazwithlove

This is a small, symmetrical netmap supporting emfh, koth, ktmwtb and survival. It has been merged with Hopper's Aleph One Previous AI to prevent monsters from freezing up, so the plugin won't be necessary for this map. It's recommended for two-player sized netgames, but three might work aswell.

Notes for version 1.0:

First release.

Precipitation for Eternal 1.2 1.2.0

liacrow on Mar 30th 2019

Secondtolastofthemohicans_0003

For those of you whose machines do not have difficulty with precipitation scripts, here is a merged map of the scenario with both precipitation and the latest bugfixes from the final stages of Eternal development.

Unfortunately, some quirk of a few people's machines couldn't cope with precipitation, even after bugfixes were made, and so Pfhorrest ordered it cut from final release. Although the effect on most levels is subtle due to an A1 limitation on having 1024 objects, I thought it well worth the effort of maintaining. So, before I cut the lua from the main scenario, I created a branch to preserve it, and left the supporting alterations to the Shapes file in the main branch.

Naturally, you'll need to download Eternal 1.2, found here,, to use this map.

Then, download this map file, drop it in your Eternal directory, and select it in Environment preferences.

To test whether your machine can handle this, skip to level 13: A Friend in Need, and see if your framerate drops when you walk outside. My 12 year old rig gets 20 FPS with everything on, but some players have reported as little as 0.5 FPS with precipitation.

Since this is an altered map and not a plugin, it probably will not be compatible with save games from the official release, neither with co-op games where one player has the official and one player has this. For best results in co-op, both players should have the same version of the map.

Credits: Original rain and ember sprites by $lave and Windbreaker, respectively; Original precip code by Wrkncacnter, who borrowed heavily from Treelama; Eternal adaptation by Aaron Freed; Snow sprites and code fixes by Lia Gerty; Ashes are a palette swap of embers, fallout a palette swap of rain.

Eternal Legends of Marathon Netmaps 1.0

raptor200221 on Mar 18th 2019

Zuranthus_eternal

This map pack is a redux version of the Legends of Marathon netmaps. This is currently the only set of netmaps made for Eternal. This will need to be played in the latest version of Eternal. Most of these maps were made for 2-8 players, and most work well in survival mode. Huge thanks to Spooky, Ravenshining, Pfhorrest, and Aaron. Without them, none of this would be possible. This set of maps is dedicated to the entire Marathon community, so do not feel bad if you do not have a map named after you.

The Aleph One Realism Mod (.lua + physics) 1.0

willbill808 on Mar 12th 2019

This mod drastically changes the gameplay of Marathon!

Combat is much more fierce. This is like Marathon on steroids. Experience it for yourself.

*This mod establishes a new oxygen system:

  • You start with 2 minutes worth of oxygen (average human breath time.) -When you go into an environment in which you cannot breathe, you will start holding your breath. Be careful you don't black out! Holding your breath for too long makes you delirious, you know.
  • Luckily, if you make it to air in time, you can catch your breath and get those 2 minutes of air back.
  • Oxygen tanks now add tank oxygen to your total air capacity. When your tanks run out, you start holding your breath.

  • It is also possible to become delirious from being in a near death state.

  • Monsters and weapons are now more accurate and lethal, and travel at high speeds much closer to reality.

  • Physics are changed, especially gravity, which is more realistically amplified from the low-grav Marathon stock physics. NOTE: this may make some jumping puzzles unsolvable. Gravity has been changed to closely match that of Earth (on standard gravity maps).

Notes for version 1.0:

This can certainly be improved upon, but for now, it's stable and it works.

Got Voice? (.lua) 1.0

willbill808 on Mar 12th 2019

This solo Lua script makes you, the player, more vocal.

At any time, you can press the "~" key to speak some chatter.

You will also yell at friends who accidentally hurt you, and grunt when you experience pain.

You may also find yourself apologizing for friendly fire, and taunting enemies you kill.

BUT... There is one big twist... You may attract unwanted attention with your newfound voice...

Notes for version 1.0:

This will probably be the only release of this that I do. This mod can get annoying...

M1A1 Original Teleport Fader (plugin) 1.0

willbill808 on Mar 12th 2019

In the original Marathon 1 game for Macintosh, there is a white screen flash fader that happens when you teleport in. I created a .lua script to emulate this behavior. Installation instructions included.

Notes for version 1.0:

This is an initial version that works perfectly fine most of the time. However, if you manage to shoot yourself across a map at a high rate of speed (i.e. from a rocket), that may falsely trip the teleport detector.

Aleph One: Pathways Into Darkness 1.1.1

W'rkncacnter on Mar 11th 2019

8

This is a full port of the 1993 mac game "Pathways Into Darkness" by Bungie to the Aleph One engine. Therefore, Pathways into Darkness is now available on Windows, Linux, and Mac.

Note: You must use the latest beta version of Aleph One for this to work correctly. It is currently version 1.3b2 and can be found here: https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/releases

This is a little different from a typical marathon scenario, as it features:

  • Levels that can be re-visited multiple times with their state preserved.
  • Advanced inventory for carrying and using many items.
  • Resting to heal.
  • Use of crystals to use special powers, along with conventional weapons.
  • RPG elements.
  • An ending score based on how you do while playing the game.
  • Talking to the dead.

Make sure to read the readme for important information about controls. There are some non-obvious things you need to be aware of when playing the game. If you get stuck, there is a link to some Youtube videos in the readme that can be used as a guide.

Notes for version 1.1.1:

Changes for 1.1.1:

Fix issue with people that started a game on v1.0, upgraded to 1.1 and continued their saved games. They were not able to arm the bomb.

Changes for 1.1:

Many bug fixes and other improvements/quality of life changes.

The readme has a full list of changes in 1.1.

If you are currently playing through the game, you can keep using your existing saved game. Just click OK when it says the map has changed, and the next time you transition between levels, you'll get the new changes.
