Marathon 1 Redux 0.0.11-alpha
liacrow on Jul 10th 2018
Latest releases now on Github: https://github.com/ravenshining/M1R
A project to give Marathon 1 a facelift, incorporating the new features of Aleph One to flesh out and add realism to the Marathon's architecture. Eventually, to include a branching storyline- possibly even missions on the colony moon.
Featuring Marathon 1 with liquids, ambient sound, new weapons, more scenery, improved sprites, expanded architecture, new terms & terminal art, the latest HD plugins. Also including Craig Hardgrove's soundtrack, you can visit his page over at themarathonmusic.com !
Although it is now a playable scenario, I still consider this an Alpha release for development and testing, but at this stage you may find it more entertaining than and almost as complete as M1A1. To contribute to this project, download it and read the "Help Wanted.txt" and/or TODO.txt," or head over to the Pfhorums where the lists and discussion are posted: http://pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=53510
Notes for version 0.0.11-alpha:
At this point, M1R is playable through to the end in the canonical level sequence! There will undoubtedly be bugs along the way, the biggest of which is that M2/M? Rescue missions are not yet supported in Aleph One.
Please note that if you command-option- or control-shift- begin new game, only (most of) levels 1-37 are playable. Levels 39-99 are redundancies for the planned branching storyline, and do not yet have physics, terminals, or MML.
Redux now features netmaps! Levels 101-119 include all of Bungie's M1 netmaps, M? Jjaro netmaps, and two M? lava netmaps I happen to have converted.
For the Simplici7y release, I've zipped the source folders for the map and images so you don't have a gigantic list of levels in your Environment preferences, and zipped up all the plugins to save space.
Now that this is a near-complete replacement for M1A1 that has grown to 245MB in size, I might be updating Simplici7y less often. You can still find the latest updates and releases on the GitHub site listed above.

A similar scaled texture pack as "xBR Monsters for M1", but this is for M1's weapons and the algorithm is slightly different.
I would recommend leaving linear filtering on to smooth out the textures.
Notes for version 1.0:
Shouldn't be any incompatibilities with other plugins.

NEFX is proud to present the first ever custom-made map for Pathways Into Darkness...Or at least Marathon: Pathways Into Darkness. This is an extermination level, so return to your starting platform to exit after killing everything.
This level is highly action-oriented and full of edifying trials and variety like never before experienced in the game.

Spatial Outpouring is a surrealist total conversion I created since finishing Lost Lands. I had grown to feel that Lost Lands was too old and sloppy a project to represent my current abilities.
I had the idea of creating a 'psychedelic' marathon scenario with a highly otherworldly plot, and heavy use of bright colors and fractals.
I also used synthesizers to create copious sound FX and ambiences for the game, and included an original song of mine in the title screen.
I created a new monster, a new weapon, and changed a lot of the weapon functions and physics to make gameplay feel fresh.
This version has 8 levels (one of them is a secret). I may or may not find the time to finish more of the game in the future.
Notes for version 1.3:
Player returns to main menu after Chapter 1 ends, rather than to an incomplete 9th level.

This contained a special demo of Marathon 2. Instead of the normal sprites for Bob, there was instead special sprites of the Director of Evangelism of Power Computing, Bob LeVitus. Also included with the demo was a Shapes file that could be used with the full version of the game.
I was surprised that this wasn't already ported to Aleph One so, I've rectified that.

Wrk Maps 1.0
W'rkncacnter on Apr 1st 2018
Wrk Maps is a net pack for infinity consisting of levels from Infinity, M2, and others that have been modified, usually for better flow, or to look prettier. Along with Infinity and M2, maps are based on other maps by windbreaker, RyokoTK, Treellama, irons, and $lave.
There may even be a new unreleased map somewhere in here by someone other than me.
