I don't know if these are available elsewhere nowadays, but the copy available at "http://files3.bungie.org/trilogy/MarathonRED.zip" has incomplete mml.
So, here are some mml tags to make your copy more like the original Marathon RED. A few things are changed slightly; those are marked with a <!-- --> tag.
Notes for version 2:
When previously editing this for upload, I carelessly omitted the </marathon> closure. Oops, I'm an idiot and a shame to the Nakh legacy.
Also a few small changes to blankspace or comment tags.

This is a slightly modified version of Hopper's M1A1 HUD. It moves the HUD to the lower left corner of the screen and allows for fullscreen mode without any black bar. This should work for any Aleph One scenario, including M1.
I also made a few small edits to the HUD itself for aesthetics and transparency.
Thanks to wrkncacnter for the additional scripting.

"What a hoot! If you enjoyed revisiting Earth in Tempus Irae, you're going to really like your "Vacation In Vilcabamba". The mapmaking is excellent and more than sufficiently puzzly, the new textures are gorgeous, the terminals are completely proof-read, the AI is moderately twisted, and the monster placement is quite good, with a new baddie for you to wrestle with. My only disappointment was that it was only one level; I finished it cheering for more." Description by Rigger

I have applied the old Mac patches and converted to files that modern Aleph One will read. Enjoy! -Shappie

Like with the Marathon Red mml which I uploaded recently, the mml included in "http://files3.bungie.org/trilogy/MarathonEvil.zip" is not the same as if you were playing the original Marathon Evil.
In this case, it is very different.
For example: the assault rifle in Evil was a “MOW-MDN/36CM ASLT-WPN”, not an “MA-90E”.
Those other names have been distributed for years, ever since Aleph One SDL was a new thing … does nobody else here play with the authentic Evil mml? Pardon me if I don't know whether some other total conversion named the fists a pair of “steel manacles”, and that the person making the old mml was confused, or whether they decided to invent new names when they wrote those old mml files.
So, if you wish to play Marathon Evil with the original text strings, you'll need to completely replace the "Evil Strings.mml" file which was included in the aforementioned "MarathonEvil.zip" package.
When you do replace the old mml with this one, there is one more thing you'll need to do: either rename the "Music.ogg" file to "Music Accursed.ogg" or change the string with index="10". In this mml file, the strings for default filenames were made for those who have all their scenario assets together in the same folder with the Marathon Aleph One executable a-k-a app. Those of us who do so disable individual mml by moving files to a different folder where Marathon Aleph One doesn't load them. You gain more flexibility with your scenarios if you do so, and you only need to ensure that filenames do not conflict.

Narrow Mountain Path is a weaponless platforming map combining tricks that let the player climb stairs higher than .33 WU and regular fast precision platforming. If a player gains a bit of height off the ground they can put their feet within .33 WU of a higher ledge and climb it, again giving them extra height they can use to climb subsequent steps. Using air control you can also steer off and onto a ledge so that you gain a height boost as if you were climbing a step which makes longer than normal horizontal jumps possible.
Despite the special trick emphasis I've tried to make this a flowy fun map to play through without falling or speedrun. Included in this download is a speedrun film and a film showing some more beginner friendly routes. A second version of the map with 3x health and an AR can be reached with level skip for more speedrun fun.
Straferunning is required to beat this map. To strafe run, press your forward + left or right strafe key to move faster at a slight diagonal.

Almost Transparent Blue beta 1.1
Exy on Aug 14th 2020
Almost Transparent Blue is a single level for Marathon Infinity with an emphasis on intense close quarters combat and creative use of Marathon's air movement.
I first began work on this level because I kept worrying about how the kind of combat I enjoyed would be received by the wider community. I created this level to indulge the kind of fight design I enjoy, where concepts like bullet herding and crowd manipulation come into play and the player is surrounded by enemies. Over time I decided I wanted to find the elements of challenge gameplay that are unique to Marathon's mechanics and aren't possible to recreate in other classic fps games.
If this understandably isn't appealing to you Easy and K should offer a relaxing experience for the most part.
I developed and tested this almost entirely on Total Carnage. You should not play this on Total Carnage.
Due to a bug with raised dynamic limits, currently trying to load saves from this map after quitting the A1 application will crash A1. To fix this, begin a new game on the map, then exit to the main menu and load your save.
may require Aleph One 1.3 as I haven't tested with 1.2 and don't know when dynamic limits were changed. additionally software mode will experience some visual bugs with invisible liquids.
Notes for version beta 1.1:
tweaked player starting position to make the jump to AR easier without straferunning, tweaked item placement in final area to give the player a better cue for when to shoot at the beginning, hopefully fixed a monster bugging out in the same area

A medium-sized EMFH map inspired by the M1 level Bob-B-Q. The "trenches" in the middle of the map raise to the upper level every minute, changing who has the high ground. There's also a secret switch that reveals every two minutes that'll temporarily flood the lower level with lava.
This is the first map I've ever shared, so please give feedback; Assuming I don't lose interest in a week, I'll be happy to patch it.
