I've made quite a few scripts for Alpha One over the years and I figured I'd write a guide to help others.
This guide contains all of my secrets for building awesome lua scripts. With it, you too will be able to write beautiful code.
Take it from me, I'm a xpert LUA engineer.

Paradise Lost XVI
RyokoTK on Feb 16th 2015
Ares Ex Machina on Sep 14th 2010
A small but spacious map designed to make it easy to find other players quickly.
In an effort to reduce auto-switch, the ARs and SMGs have been tucked away in the nooks and crannies of the map (for the most part).
To increase the availability of the ARs and SMGs, these weapons have been quadrupled wherever you find them, effectively (but not actually) increasing their appearance rate beyond 100%.
Notes for version 1.1:
Added an anti auto-switch weapon compartment for the AR (top level). Raised ceiling elevation of certain architectural extremities. Adjusted direction of player starting locations to encompass a better view of nearby weapons. Fixed texture alignment issues. Some minor re-texturing.

This is just a quick physics file that I thought up in my sleep. It really amps up a lot of the weapons. Heres a description:
Pistols: Shoot Rockets
AR: Ultra Shotgun Attachment
Shotguns: 2 shots per shell
Alien weapon: Shoots Shpt'Kr Bolts (2nd trigger major)
SMG: 100 round clip
Rocket Launcher: Shoots Major Spht' Bolts
Fusion Pistol: Major Damage Increase (CAUTION: DO NOT SHOOT AT CLOSE RANGE!!!!)
That's about it. If you find any bugs, or have any suggestions, just leave me a comment.
Notes for version 1.0:
Careful of the fusion pistol because if you fire at close range it may lock up your computer. This has happened to me before.

The TTEP (Total Texture Enhancement Package) is a massive package containing remakes of the original textures from the Marathon trilogy.
It replaces the original low-quality textures with new high-ress versions with a maximum size of 1024x1024 pixels. I've tried to get them as close to the originals as possible.
New in version 7.0:
Script files have been cleaned up and files have been renamed to make it more clear how to install.
All textures are now optimized .DDS files, with increased performance as well as quality!
Textures can now be scaled down in Aleph One's OpenGL settings. This also makes the TTEP a single size package, there's no longer 4 different sizes.
A lot of the textures have tiny flaws removed, some are completely redone to make them look better.
The Textures are now divided by their games, meaning you're not forced to download and use the Marathon 2 Textures when you only want the Marathon 1 replacements for example.

My only good map pack.
Notes for version 666a9bed:
So Underworld isn't totally dead yet. I do make levels occasionally, and I've added two to this version: Parc and The Multiplex.
Parc was formerly known as Pillow, and has seen a few small-but-helpful improvements since its original appearance on Pfhorums. The Multiplex was my contest map for Ryoko's 2008 Summer mapmaking contest; it didn't even get into the Victory Dance VI pack, so I thought I'd release it here for posterity.

High-res Landscapes for use with Aleph One for both Marathon 2: Durandal and Marathon Infinity.
New in 1.1:
Some of the landscapes, didn't loop properly, now they do.
Some minor visual improvements to the actual landscapes. And some graphical flaws have been removed.
Landscapes are now .DDS instead of .JPG, increasing their in-game performance and quality.
The landscapes can now be scaled down in the graphics options in Aleph One if they happen to slow your system a lot. (Also thanks to .DDS format).
An optional script file has been included to keep the landscapes in place when OpenGL Fog is turned on.

Scuba Sounds 1.1
Quartz on Aug 25th 2011
This is a plugin that adds scuba sound effects (breathing & occasional bubbles) when under water. It doesn't use any lua or sacrifice any stock marathon sounds, so it should be compatible with pretty much anything.
note1: stay underwater for at least 45 seconds to get the full effect.
note2: I got the samples from pond5.com, I didn't record them myself.
note3: there are two known bugs: if you use the 'underwater' sfx in your map as an ambient sound you'll get the breathing along with it, and the bubbles sound happens in vacuum levels. I'll release another version if I can figure out how to get around these.
Notes for version 1.1:
made the breathing sound a hair louder

Territory is a new game type for team play. Red and Blue teams fight for control of a level, with scores based on floor area. Fun and simple.

Realism Pack 2.0
PerseusSpartacus on Mar 1st 2013
This shapes, sounds, and physics pack is designed to make the play of Marathon Infinity more realistic. In future, I may modify even more of the game's workings, such as monster movement speeds or attack speeds.
NOTE: This physics model is not designed for multiplayer use; it would make the weapons incredibly overpowered and many maps almost unplayable.
Notes for version 2.0:
A comprehensive list of changes can be found in the Read-me file.
