Marathon 1 Redux 0.0.1 alpha
liacrow on Jan 8th 2018
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 incorporate a branching storyline and HD plugins.
Featuring Marathon 1 with liquids, ambient sound, new weapons, more scenery, improved sprites, expanded architecture, new terms & terminal art.
Notes for version 0.0.1 alpha:
Premature release due to forum interest. Still requires M1A1 at this point to run.
Two levels playable, much more work done on the first. They are by no means how they will appear in the final version, this is just a concept demonstration.
Known issues: -Vacuum grenade sprite does not make sound and persists -Random extravision on G4 Sunbathing -Lots of scenery items need 1-10 twiddling and sizes MML'ed

Mararthon: Yuge 1.1
W'rkncacnter on Aug 25th 2017
Mararthon: Yuge is a 30 level scenario, plus 225 secret levels for many extra hours of gameplay.
Yuge is a community project that was created with procedural level generation using rooms that were mapped by hand. Mappers contribute varying sized rooms, which are then fed in to the level generator which is responsible for creating the overall level layout, texturing, placing monsters, items, and sounds. Therefore, you will see some of the same rooms multiple times while playing through the scenario, but each will likely have a different set of monsters in slightly different locations, different textures, and you will likely have different weapons.
The level generator was created by W'rkncacnter, and 353 unique mapped out areas were contributed by several mappers: Windbreaker, RyokoTK, Sankara, W'rkncacnter, President People, $lave, General Tacticus, Glamdring, and Adminn_1.
Yuge has 2 new weapons, 2 new boss monsters, new wall textures, new scenery objects, maps with precipitation, and a new liquid type. Along with the procedurally generated levels, the final level of the main scenario is a custom map created by Windbreaker.
Keep and eye out for a URL within the secret levels where you can download even more bonus maps.
Notes for version 1.1:
- Made maps work properly with co-op.
- Added amazing icons.
- Fixed an issue with the stats plugin.

Colony Mod 1.3.1
skraeling on Dec 27th 2015
This is 1 single player map. It was supposed to be part of a 3 map intro to an 11 map campaign that started a year ago. I'm hoping to get the next two maps added over the next month. Doubt I'll ever find the time to create the full campaign.
New physics file, new shapes file, and the merged map file are included in the download.
Physics of monsters has been modified so they act a little different.
The behavior of every gun has been modified. No assault rifle.
No new art.
If you're getting frustrated or just want to goof around, there's a secret door right at the start which leads to a Cheat Room containing all the guns and a recharger.
Notes for version 1.3.1:
-Added 3rd level
-Changed shotgun behavior
-Added terminal explaining new pistol behavior to 1st level, also added ammo
-Added sounds to 2nd level
-Included physics and shapes file, along with infinity's original music and sound files
-12/28/15: made a change so that you actually transport to level 3 after level 2

Fart Or Die! 1.3.5
dustu on Sep 22nd 2015
NOTE: Many changes have gone into this game to address the two reviews. With over 900 downloads, I'd appreciate a review from someone else. Please? Many many updates to add pillars, stairs, transparency, different goals, etc. When this was originally reviewed, there were only 4 levels! Please review if you downloaded it.
Fart or Die! is a 9-level game that uses hidden areas, terminals, switches, teleports, and more!
As a beginner, I struggled to figure out how to create switches, terminals, platforms, stairs, circles (use circle plugin around a line), uplink chips, exits and terminal variants with multiple actions. I also could not figure out how to add motion or depth to water, lava, or sewage. All that works now and is included in this game.
I am not an expert map maker by any means (more a newb) but this map contains a lot of commonly used elements for map makers and may help some newbs.
NOTE: I am not a super mapping pro and my levels are much less complex than others on here…but it is that complexity that made it hard for me to learn by studying other maps. I hope this set of maps helps someone new on here. This is NOT an advanced mapping tutorial. It is meant to help you get over the hump.
Having said all that, it is also fun to play and I enjoyed making it. While the levels are not too complex, they are challenging and require you to follow game strategy to move from one level to another. :) If you play the game at the hardest level, you will find it difficult to complete. :)
Let me know if you like it. I'm in the pfhorums as dustu and on live games as dustu.
NOTE: I have addressed most, if not all, of the comments by reviewers on here and in the forums.
If you download this, please review it.
Notes for version 1.3.5:
Minor bug fixes.

Marathon Phoenix 1.3
RyokoTK on Jun 27th 2015
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.
1.3 now has stats support for Lhowon.org's solo/coop leaderboards, and a few bonus levels from an unfinished project appended to the end of the campaign.

9 levels. This may be the most difficult scenario you will ever play.
Here's a review from the only person I know that completed it.
I just finished Ra'thor (except for the hidden level, which I did not find the entry point for).
"I've been playing Marathon since late '95, and think I'm a pretty good player, but your scenario is hands down the most difficult I've ever played. In fact, I'd say it's pretty near impossible to beat on Total Carnage, especially the last 3 vacuum levels. I freely admit that I cheated constantly for oxygen and once or twice for ammo (especially on Igor Ra'thor), and occasionally used Forge. I do have a life, and I just didn't have the time (or desire) to play those levels over and over again to reach the level of perfection needed to complete them on the available oxygen or ammo (at least what I could find). I believe I never cheated for shields, but I may be mistaken. It took me a long time to get through the maps, so memory fades. You made free use of hidden switches that made things that much harder".

Notes for version I:
This scenario was created back in 1998 and is based on Marathon EVIL. It's my original version and is meant to be almost impossible to complete. I'm working on an updated version that will be much easier and include 2 new levels...Version II coming soon!

Lost Lands is a 25 level conversion I created entirely myself.
I started working on it when I was roughly 12 years old and I now consider it finished and in reasonably playable shape now that I am 25, 13 years later. As you progress through the game, you can see my mapmaking grow gradually more complex, and the way I grew pre-occupied with experimental and surreal mapbuilding techniques.
The official soundtrack is available here -
Notes for version 1.11:
This version is an overhaul of the shapes file, replacing many embarrassing pixelated textures with more thematic, color coded and polished looking artwork.
I've also included the "Previous AI" plugin with the install to avoid issues with monsters failing to activate.

Xmas 3: Starship unburied.0
drictelt on Nov 17th 2013
Xmas 3 is the third in a series of collaborative single-player projects, in an episodic format.
Contributors: RyokoTK, Shadowbreaker, Cryos, Axle_Gear, Drictelt, Goran
Notes for version unburied.0:
Apparently this scenario had gone lost. This is what I found on my backup drive. I suspect it is the final version, but I'm not entirely sure.

Minor adjustments to enemies.

Blauwe Vingers - English 1.2 English
Crater Creator on Nov 2nd 2013
This is an English translation of the Aleph One scenario "Blauwe Vingers", originally in Dutch. All due credit for the original scenario and game content belongs to Tim Vogel and Stage Game Studio. The translation was the combined effort of myself, Drictelt, and Google's translation service.
This is a translation of the map file only, which means only terminal text, map text, level names, and console text are translated. Everything else, like interface text, loading screen text, and audio, is unchanged at this time.
To install, move Kaart.sceA into the "Data" subfolder of your Blauwe Vingers installation. For more information, see the included read me file.
Notes for version 1.2 English:
This is the first release, compatible with Blauwe Vingers 1.2.
