Marathon Phoenix 1.4
RyokoTK on Jan 19th 2022
A 35-level single player major conversion.
This scenario is difficult and action-packed; it features a full arsenal of new, powerful weapons, and more threatening enemies than you could ever want.
1.4 has new Lua features like a performance overlay, weapon buffs, a lot of little bug fixes; it also applies ammo capacity limits on Total Carnage. Requires Aleph One 1.5 or newer, probably!

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 version 1.5 of AlephOne or newer. Download here: https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/releases/tag/release-20220115.
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 1.3:
- Requires AlephOne 1.5.
- Support for weapon hotkeys and resting using a hotkey.
- Various fixes related to newer alephone versions, the readme has more detail in the changelog section.

BRUTAL MARATHON 1.2
W'rkncacnter on Jan 5th 2022
The main thing to know about this plugin is that if you're going to refer to it, you must use ALL CAPS.
Along with that, you should know that it adds extra gore to every monster that dies. Some monsters spill blood when you shoot them. Bullets/explosions leave marks on the ground and walls. All changes are purely visual. The amount of gore you see is configurable (see readme for details).
This is compatible with M2 and Infinity, and any other scenario that largely uses unmodified versions of those monsters.
(Requires Alephone v1.4)
Notes for version 1.2:
- Tooncinator made the shapes patch fully compatible with Infinity by adding missing SMG graphics, vacbobs, and color tables.
- Removed the crush sound as it wasn't working for everyone and didn't add much
- Now with new butts!

Treellama asked for a curated list of maps from Starlight, so I picked a selection that should cover any player count and represents the full 10 years of maps in that pack.

A fusion pistol physics for those who like playing on BROWN, or rounds with the Fusionize script. Basically makes it stronger, dare I say crazy. :P
The primary fire is the usual major/overload bolt, and the secondary fire shoots the major dispersal bolt. Basically the damage amount is the same, however it also has splash damage, so be careful with distance.
Admittedly this idea is not completely originally mine. It's very similar to how the fusion pistol operates in the 9 Minutes 37 Seconds scenario.
While I can't stop you from using it as such, it's not intended for games that don't only have the fusion pistol, so keep that in mind.

[12/23/21 update: One new template added that is triangle-based, specifically by taking all the 1-world-unit squares from the unfilled grid template and dividing them into four triangles.] I use pre-prepared templates to make a lot of NEFX maps and I felt it was time to pass them along for anyone else's use.
One of these is used to create many NEFX netmaps, and is a room of 700 1-WU square polygons with pre-textured walls, ceilings, and floors, differential shading, item spawns, and sounds.
Another one is similar but spanning the entire possible map, and may be used for solo maps. Of course, you may want to delete some of the squares.
The oldest one is the same as the second one except unfilled and not configured.
Notes for version 3:
One new template added: A triangle one with all 1-world-unit squares divided into four triangles.

Sticky Shoes 0.1

This is 3 netmaps. One is over 20 years old & out-of-touch with reality. One is completely stale & warmed over. One is a fresh stinking pile just made. I plan on adding to and updating these, so this is just a test version & I'll be happy to hear any feedback (on Discord). Thanks for trying them out!

Single Player Network Game is a set of Lua, physics, and shapes to simulate a network game using bots. The lua script automatically populates maps with the bot monsters, and the shapes and physics make them look and act like players in a multiplayer game. Note that this only works on netmaps that don't have embedded physics (this is the vast majority of netmaps). There are many configurable settings you can tweak to get just the multiplayer experience you're looking for.
This project is based on RadBurn's Marathon Conflict mod, and wouldn't exist without the work he put in to create the shapes and the original set of physics. I've included the unmodified Conflict shapes in this download to simplify the setup process, but RadBurn did all of the work for that. I have tweaked the physics a bit from the original conflict physics, mostly to make the bots act more like real players in a network game.
If you're just wanting to be able to revive in a single player game without reloading the map/saved game, then there's also a script for that that doesn't have any of the bot stuff.
Adminn said he'd make this script, but it's been literally forever and he hasn't done it.
(Requires Alephone v1.4)
Notes for version 1.5:
Slight physics modifications. Addition of BRUTAL option for more gore.

[PLEASE READ BELOW]
In the latest multimedia dispatch from NEFX, spend time stuck in a mad one's dimension trying to attain the most amount of glory in the most amount of time before the current iteration of your condemned (blessed?) soul is snuffed. In the cracks, drink of all the details of the strange essence you've stumbled into. More levels and optional files (i.e textures) may be added across updates (note also the extra maps folder with one map in it).
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need to toggle the included (and modded) Survival script to play this scenario. I got Hopper's permission for its use -- just ask him. Thanks, Hopper!
New sounds come from Hollywood, sundry YouTube, SWB Audio Capture, and Cythera by Ambrosia Software.
Notes for version 1:
One extra map so far.
