Err... uhm... so i did it? The whole Infinity spritesets and images (minus the Player, that will come, eventually) but in a more cartoon-ish format.
For any problem in downloading the whole pack, the single items are mirrored on my Drive.
Notes for version 1.0:
Initial release, let me know about bug, inconsistencies etc.

The Map file for Marathon 2: Durandal, as it was presented in the Windows 95 release.
The Windows map file contains several visual (and a few gameplay altering) changes from the Mac version, many small, some big. It also has a few altered terminal images.
Anyone familiar with "Waterloo Waterpark" will immediately be surprised with this rendition.
There are some players who do prefer the Windows map, so I decided it would be worth posting on Simplici7y.
The M2 Win95 map file is not particularly hard to obtain, as it is available in retail M2 copies for Windows, and it's available as a download on the Trilogy Release site, HOWEVER, that merge does not contain chapter screen sound effects. I re-merged the map file with the Mac version's sound resource folder, so now all chapter screens will play the appropriate sound.

The entire Marathon OST meticulously restored with new instruments and better production value.
Unlike most M1 music replacers, this one does NOT try to heavily alter the original composition nor is it simply a sound font swap. I remixed everything inside of FL Studio 20 with high quality VST instruments and (occasionally) real hardware synths and sounds. My goal was to create a faithful reinterpretation of the OST with mostly appropriate sounds (nothing more modern than 1990's electronic instruments, etc) but with a better overall balance and less cheap sound. I'm extremely proud of the outcome, and I think fans of the original game and its score will really appreciate it too!
This download contains a FLAC and OGG version, to replace the in game music, simply drop the OGG files into the "Music" folder in your Marathon directory.
If Aleph One is ever updated to allow gapless looping of music, I will create a loopable mix.
(if you enjoyed this music, check out fragileforms.bandcamp.com , where I post my original music as MetaMorphosys)
Notes for version 1.4:
Corrected typographical errors in the tags

The Man on Mar 10th 2021
To be clear: I didn’t create this – it’s the work of James Hastings-Trew (of Tempus Irae fame). Hopefully he won’t mind me uploading this here.
This won the Bungie Mapmaking Contest back in the day – deservingly so; it’s a superb package in almost every manner. It’s become increasingly difficult to find, though, and the main version available requires running a patch on the classic Mac OS. Hence this upload.
Overall, this is a fun three-level pack with some great new textures. The story is fairly cursory (though well written), and it ends on a cliffhanger for an intended sequel that James never made because he got roped into Tempus Irae instead. TI is great, though, so no major complaints.
This is intended to run in Infinity; it includes a map and a shapes file. Further info is included in the “Simplici7y Megiddo Read Me” file found in the download.

HD monsters for Marathon 2 / Infinity. These were generated with Topaz Gigapixel AI upscaling using Art settings, with some automatic processing to correct colors and smooth the edges of the sprites. The art style upscales have less detail than the other gigapixel plugin, but this is typically a good thing, as the extra "detail" in the other plugin was controversial. If you like some monsters from the other plugin better, it should be easy to mix-and-match monster collections, by copying the numbered folders from one plugin to another. For reference, the other plugin can be found here: http://simplici7y.com/items/marathon-infinity-upscaled-monsters.
There were some manual edits done to the fighter shapes to keep their staves/glow maps consistent between frames. The inconsistencies were obvious with the higher definition monsters, so thanks to Aaron for cleaning up the originals.

Tick Rider 0.2?
Kuurin on Feb 18th 2021
Soar on the wings of a bowl of spoiled pudding!
Ride on a tick, and fight from the sky!
Jump from tick to tick, or abuse the improbable physics of whatever a tick is made of to boost yourself over long distances! Blast the tick out from under your foes! Ride on the wrong tick and explode!
The possibilities are endless!
This fun and mildly-insane netscript is best suited to larger maps with open spaces. And it's even better with lava. Try it and you'll soon understand why!
Highly configurable, with various weird secrets and bizarre instances of what may possibly pass for humor. Try adding your own nonsense – Amuse, bemuse, or disgust your friends!
This package includes one shoddy, simplistic, yet lovable and purpose-made netmap, Tick Stew, that will allow you to explore the possibilities in various networked gametypes or just by yourself in a solo game.
Take to the un-friendly skies and become a Tick Rider today!
Notes for version 0.2?:
Position ticks out of impassable polygons.
Deal with some Lua errors caused by exceeding monster limits with too many ticks.
Added super-informative read-me documentation.
Added special Tick-Netmap "Cavendish Tick Catastrophe"

"An enormous 6-level total conversion. (Well, okay, not total... and that's its biggest weakness.) The mapmaking is pretty good, and the new creatures are quite cool (you can see them in a series of very nice pics here if you're up for a 3 meg download, or get an idea from this 500K desktop picture), but I was bugged a bit when a new monster, with lots of new looks/sounds, died with an old sound, or fired with an old sound, or... Okay, it's a trivial complaint. Overall, this is really, really well done. It's been out for a while (as have lots of the recent uploads), but it's the first time I've seen it, and maybe you, too. Lots of art, lots of sound, lots of music (that's where all the new size comes from)."
