[2022-11-06 - New map added, "Dusk Questioning for the Glyphs". It can be downloaded separately at the provided link directory or with the scenario itself if you don't already have it.]

In this latest NEFX shell to be added to map-wise over time, you accidentally teleport into a messy, long-abandoned, and now-infested storage complex run by an AI who has gotten imaginative in isolation but who is thwarted in progress and needs someone to retrieve missing keys amidst a great mess in order to both grow unabated and help you escape. All maps in this scenario shall be Retrieval missions.

NEFX Netmaps 30

[2022-11-06 - One new map has been made: “Endless Revealing Contraption”. It can be downloaded separately at the provided link directory or with the entire map pack itself if you don't already have it.]

You wanted it, you finally got it (and I've wanted it too): Height variation, differential shading, non-square based architecture, dynamic lighting, ambient sounds, textural variety, and random sounds. Initially this was based on the Kill Them All project in the sense of following the rule of having 100 polygons per level max, but over time it seems I could not stick to that necessarily. :3 However, I have made many of these maps from a 700-polygon template I made (you know, 700 because 7 because Marathon).

Notes for version 30:

[2022-11-06 - One new map has been made: “In the Newly Discovered Contours of the Microcosm's Interior”. It can be downloaded separately at the provided link directory or with the scenario itself if you don't already have it.]

In this NEFX shell based on Pathways Into Darkness, you've probed too deeply into matters unknown and found yourself in the forbidden zone, at the mercy of a once-dormant deity ordering your retrieval of diamonds to escape.

[PLEASE READ BELOW]

[11/02/22: New map added, "Findings in the Endless Contemplation". It can be downloaded at the provided link either separately or along with the scenario itself if you don't already have it.]

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 3:

Marathon: Nampa 1

Adminn_1 on Oct 1st 2022

Screen_shot_2022-09-30_at_9

In this latest Marathon content shell from NEFX, a once-promising new sector of Nampa, Idaho has gone to shit along with its possibly clone-based citizenry, and you're caught in it. Escape?

Thanks to Alex Scobell for those "Earth" textures! He made them like 20 years ago when he was 10 and they never really got used, but he offered me to make something with them, so I made this. :3

[Reuploaded from 2019] Marathon: Green (You Snooze, You Lose) 2

Adminn_1 on Sep 24th 2022

This fixes the issues from the original 2019 upload, meaning it doesn't have anyone else's plugin or any version of Aleph One in it. This was a joke made in response to Meerjel01's proposed scenario Marathon: Green. It's an extermination level, so return to the starting platform after killing everything. In the meantime, deal with all the green.

Notes for version 2:

Doesn't have anyone else's plugin or any earlier version of Aleph One in it. I used a custom texture to create the green this time, and it's easier and better to navigate this way anyway.

NEFX Lua Scripts 2

Adminn_1 on May 15th 2022

Screen_shot_2022-04-14_at_10

2022-05-15 - New netscript added: "Global Omnilode Onus - The Wire", in which players win points by collecting items.

Introducing NEFX Lua scripts, whether for singleplayer or multiplayer (though some can be used for both)! I'd like to add more to this over time.

"Funneled Spatial Remembrance" kills and taunts you if you try to save, recharge, access a terminal, or activate the automap. This is the real "Adminn_1's Challenge" to help you train for maximum Vidmaster runs!

"Victory of Absurdist Balance By Inwardness" starts you immediately with a never-ending shield charge and you will die if you reach full triple-bar (purple) shields. This will make for an interesting net game as all players have to preoccupy themselves with finding ways based on their environment, position, equipment, etc, to die the least amount of times by constantly damaging themselves enough (without going too far). Keep in mind that you can still technically kill others, or at least incapacitate them in such a way that they can't damage themselves fast enough to avoid dying.

"Betrothing to the Forgotten Root of Potentiate" means you are permanently equipped with only a single pistol with unlimited ammunition and no way to dual-wield. This will make for some very interesting net games as well as you all learn to make do with what is probably the least-used multiplayer fighting option in Marathon history. You will become a better player this way and make laughs along the way.

Notes for version 2:

New netscript added: "Global Omnilode Onus - The Wire", in which players win points by collecting items.

NEFX Physics Files 2

Adminn_1 on Apr 13th 2022

Screen_shot_2021-07-11_at_10

[2022-04-13 update: New one added, "Play Pretext to New Awareness".] This is where I will upload NEFX physics files I make. So far I have three.

What do these do?

"Play Pretexts to New Awareness"

This modifies the fists to drop infinite bouncing bombs that detonate upon settling, modifies grenades to be landmines, and modifies the rocket launcher to fire more explosives in a faster and honing fashion (albeit with one shot per clip).

“The Full Rounding of Age-Old Collective Drives”

Since the pistols and fists don’t really find use in net games most of the time except for self-challenging purposes, this disables both and replaces them with a fusion pistol of unlimited shots (technically 12,241 per the seeming allowed maximum on ShapeFusion, but you'll surely die before you run out), making it like the "starting blaster" of some first-person shooters. See how threatening the invinciwimpsi are now!

“Spectrallax of Dooming Possibility”

This makes all weapons work under liquid as they would above liquid and makes all monsters fly. This is good for net maps taking place mostly or entirely under liquid such as NEFX will later produce, where you can basically have “flying” deathmatches or survivalmatches, and thus helps to expand the combat possibilities of Marathon.

Notes for version 2:

New one added, "Play Pretexts to New Awareness".

This modifies the fists to drop infinite bouncing bombs that detonate upon settling, modifies grenades to be landmines, and modifies the rocket launcher to fire more explosives in a faster and honing fashion (albeit with one shot per clip).

NEFX Map Templates 3

Adminn_1 on Dec 23rd 2021

Screen_shot_2021-07-27_at_11

[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.

NEFX - Silent Words of the Spaces 1

Adminn_1 on Oct 24th 2021

Screen_shot_2021-10-24_at_9

This is a solo Retrieval map for Marathon: Squadron (though it could probably work well in other scenarios too). Return to the starting polygon (marked by liquid) after collecting 8 keycards and an uplink chip.

Dreamgrids of Endless Fight - a netmap series 1.0

Adminn_1 on Jul 11th 2019

Screen_shot_2019-07-11_at_9

A small pack of medium Infinity netmaps in the Wolf3D style, to be updated continuously. The newest one (07/11/19) is "Secret Machine Life". The other two were previously released individually: "Through Havoc's Various Nodes" and "Trial's Parallax" (originally released for Yuge). Future netmaps made in this style will be packaged in updates of this upload, with update notices and individual download links included in the description for those who already downloaded a previous release. This way Simplici7y won't be "clogged" or "spammed".

Marathon: Shadervoid - The Labyrwraths of Growth 1.0

Adminn_1 on May 21st 2019

Screen_shot_2019-05-21_at_2

Disclaimer and Credits

Please note that this is a hybrid scenario. I take no credit for any of its custom content beyond level design, the opening text, and the title screen logo and subtext. All other credit goes to the creators of Project Conflict (for the enemies), Mararthon: Yuge (for textures), Female Bob Shapes, Marathon: Pathways Into Darkness (for scenery), Tempus Irae (for scenery), Rubicon (for scenery), Damage, Inc. (for scenery), Weland (for the menu screen), the logo in the title screen, Hardcore Sounds, Hardestcore Sounds, common use movie sounds, and some sounds I took off YouTube.

Also, this scenario is (arguably) best viewed in GL Shader graphics, mainly for the platforms.

Introduction

With a new cast of enemies based on edits of RadBurn’s Project Conflict mod, Marathon: Shadervoid is a brutalist, structuralist, and continuously-mapped-for take on Marathon gameplay that takes place in a strange other dimension and deals thematically with humans’ war with themselves. Released here with two levels (one an introduction) and meant to have many more individual levels made for it over time, it is intended as an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of a certain efficiency-based level design formula, and infused with a kind of uncanny Lynchian horror never before seen in Marathon.

Plot

“Humanity is currently living in deep strain under the horrid reign of the Tribecom regime and their Erosion Task Force enforcers. Somewhere and in spite of this, a secret grassroots research and development organization has formed called Inteflow Enterprises, specializing in dimensional travel technology. They eventually find and access a dimension for the first time — a strange one consisting entirely of oddly arranged colorless block units, which are distinguished by varying light shades and appear to be carved out of a great void that mixes with liftable “door-like” blocks, earning it the nickname The Shadervoid. Its exact nature, and the source of its constructions, remain unknown; yet it is technically habitable with no sign of other life, and IE hope at least to learn from it and use it as some kind of refuge spot. As such, a team of members begin setting up and testing machinery near teleportation spots in several different parts of The Shadervoid, all while keeping communication signals with other crewmembers in their original world. However, at one point, signals mysteriously start to become intercepted, and the environment within The Shadervoid reportedly begins to falter in some respects, making teleportation problematic. Eventually, all signals are abruptly cut off. You, a guerilla fighter in the precinct that IE is based out of, decide with some fellow fighters to grab some arms and teleport into The Shadervoid to check on the crewmembers “just in case”. Yet there’s some sort of malfunction, and you black out.

When you finally wake up, alone…”

NEFX - Recombinant Showdowns of Ascension

Adminn_1 on Jun 9th 2018

Screen_shot_2018-06-09_at_8

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.

NEFX - Thresholds of Rite 1

Adminn_1 on Aug 9th 2017

"Thresholds of Rite" is a level built for Tempus Irae in the style of a Wolfenstein 3D level -- that is to say, no variation in floor or ceiling height (save for obstacles). It has slightly modified textures and physics, along with a new NEFX music track that plays in-game (if you have music turned on).

To get the track to run, just drag the Music folder into your Tempus Irae folder along with the map and it should run. If it doesn’t for whatever reason, say so in the comments. If nothing else, you can just listen to the music separately, loop it on a media player while you play, or simply go without.

Much thanks to Windbreaker for helping me with a lot of the technical hurdles, as well as playing through the level and offering a couple of good tips in design. You are a true comrade.

Dear future Adminn, The Phantom Potential of Convention

Adminn_1 on Feb 13th 1995, Version

I desperately hope this message finds you before you make the mistake of uploading this file. Well, not just this file but before you get sucked into Marathon at all. We can do so much better than this. Our future is bright. Marathon will ruin our lives. When you see this message, please for both of our sakes, find a different path in life, or you'll be uploading things like this.

If this message fails to get to you in time, at least it can help you prevent an even worse fate. One day you will be tempted to leave Boise. DO NOT DO THIS! This is not a mistake you will be able to recover from.

Best of luck to both of us in the future.
