Coriolis Loop 1.000000000000001
irons on Nov 25th 2008
Double Aught's classic netmap pack hasn't been changed at all, except that I've made it into "Unimap" format and zipped the file, making it easier for more modern operating systems to use.
Notes for version 1.000000000000001:
Switches from Macbin/Unimap resources to M2/95 resources. Meaningless to most, so don't bother getting this new one unless you're having trouble with the old one.

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.

Kill Them All! 1.02
RyokoTK on Jun 19th 2007
Kill Them All is a short but intense mini-scenario for Marathon Infinity. It is a collaborative project, wherein the goal for each mapper was to make complete, high-quality maps that had no more than 100 polygons.
KTA features 15 levels by myself, screamingfool, Kinetic Turtle, irons, and Shadowbreaker. It's a difficult but action-packed game -- very fun.

Sovereignty is my first netpack now containing 8 maps. I first released this netpack in April, 2007. I am pleased with the outcome and quality; even for the older maps.
In this final update (v1.2), I have added 1 new map, and fixed a blatant ambient sound error in The King of Infinite Space. I also managed to fix a terrible error in 50% of the maps, where the players would only spawn in one or two places throughout an entire game.
NOTE: For best results, don't use the hi-res textures.

In this script, the scoring method is changed so that every time you deal damage, you gain points. Kills and deaths do not award points. Watch out and don't damage yourself because it will take away points and suicides usually hurt more than help you.
Just select it when hosting and set netscript as your gametype.

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!

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

Simplici7y is a file sharing web application for the Aleph One community, written in with Ruby on Rails and hosted alongside The Pfhorums.
The project is named after a 7-polygon mapping challenge, which focuses on doing more with less.
When Fileball.org suffered downtime in early 2007, Jon Irons saw the need to fill the gap as soon as possible. He came to me with his idea for a new project. Jon's support was fundamental to the development and successful launch of Simplici7y, and I consider this project his as much as it is mine.
Simplici7y came online on the second anniversary of The Pfhorums. After Fileball.org was destroyed in a fire, S7 became the de facto place to publish. In the 4 years it has been online, there have been over 150,000 downloads, 300 items and 800 reviews.
Notes for version :
- Added the ability to host projects outside of Simplici7y
- Moved the project to github
- User interface improvements
- Visual improvements
- Stronger buttons
- Thinner header
- Moved links to the new footer
- Added more tags to the sidebar
- Improved many of the forms
More in the six year anniversary thread on the Pfhorums.

Arms Race 1.0
irons on Aug 18th 2015
Ryoko asked me to re-create the "Arms Race" game type from Counterstrike in Aleph One. Here's my attempt.
From the man himself:
Basically it's an EMFH script where everyone starts with rockets, and after each kill you get demoted to a weaker weapon, and the winner is the first person to get a kill with fists.

Cataract Bowl is amateur effort by a first time mapper, intended more as a learning experience than as a truly great map. At this stage I am still learning shading, which is why it's so dark; and my premises are straightforward and individually tested, which is why it's so tiny.
Cataract Bowl [XS] is a round, bowl-shaped level, 13 WUs across, with exterior walls 1.3 WU above the deepest point in the center. The mild mancannons on the outer walls were designed to send anybody impacting on them flying straight back toward the center, but in practice the actual effect is that anybody running along the outer wall picks up a great deal of speed if they maintain the correct angle, and otherwise simply propel one safely to the opposite side of the bowl.
Open to criticism, or mention of any errors or bugs I have not noticed in my testing so far.
Notes for version 0.8:
Small changes to weapons and ammunition since testing in the meta.
