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:

Liver and Onions 1

cassis on Oct 19th 2022

Liverandonions

Liver and Onions is a collection of maps I originally made for an unreleased scenario called hellpak

Levels are divided into three chapters, normal combat, platforming and explosive jumps and mandatory explosive jump combat, accessible from a hub. They are also marked in the vidstart menu which I encourage you to use since many levels start difficult sections without a pattern buffer.

Keep in mind chapters do not proceed in order of difficulty, the last few levels of the normal combat chapter are some of the hardest in the scenario.

These levels were created as either niche gameplay experiments, glitch exhibitions or injokes. I am mainly releasing them to vid some of them but if anyone else enjoys these I would be happy.

Hammer editor Pfhactory N Utopia 1

ZipZap2 on Oct 9th 2022

Oh

I copied Pfhactory N Utopia into the Source game engine using Source Hammer editor.

There are no textures.

This is a map for the Source Hammer editor.

Geometry and platforms are made.

The 5D space bridge really moves up and down.

Notes for version 1:

This can only be opened with the Source game Hammer editor.

Gemini Station 2.0

The Man on Aug 12th 2022

Note: I didn’t create this; Dr Mike Trinder did. All I did was to convert it to a format compatible with modern Aleph One.

Gemini Station (first complete release: July 9, 1997) is a partial conversion for Marathon Infinity with 12 total levels, though players may not see them all every time they play it. Two are secrets and three are brief exposition levels, so it has seven proper levels, of which six are very long. Seriously, they’re huge.

I haven’t played through the whole thing in a while, but it was extremely impressive when it came out; as far as I know, it was the first scenario to incorporate several mapmaking tricks like airlocks and programmable teleporters. I last replayed it two or three years ago and felt it still held up.

As far as I’m aware, the only versions previously available were incomplete conversions that came with a shapes patcher that only ran on MacOS (and I’m not even sure they ran with modern releases). This version includes the patched shapes file, so you don’t have to bother patching the shapes. All you need to do is select the map and the shapes in Marathon Infinity and you’re good. (Make sure to select the shapes!)

Apart from patching the shapes and converting the map to MacBinary format, I haven’t modified any of these files at all; the readmes are even still in Mac OS Roman. Hopefully Dr Trinder won’t mind me making his scenario accessible to modern players; several people have asked for it on Discord over the years, so I figured I’d save people the trouble in the future.

In any case, I strongly recommend this, especially if you haven’t played it. It’s probably in my top 10 Marathon scenarios of all time, and the only things keeping it out of the top 5 are its short length and its relative lack of original assets (there are no new sounds and not many new graphics). However, it still looks phenomenal, and its map design would probably still seem inventive today. The writing is also fantastic.

Note: Screenshots incorporate Goran Svensson’s HD walls & landscapes, Freeverse’s HD weapons, and in some cases W’rkncacnter’s BRUTAL MARATHON plugin. I only spent about twenty minutes on these – they’re probably nowhere near the best sights Gemini Station has to offer. (Also, you probably shouldn’t actually use these plugins with it – certain game functionality is highly likely to break or not look as intended.)

Notes for version 2.0:

Converted from archives.bungie.org upload to formats Aleph One can read on Windows and Linux.

The Flappyboi Incident 1.1

A horrible virus is affecting everything around you.

The only way you know how to deal with the situation is to spread it around as much as possible, and kill everything that remains.

(A plugin compatible with Marathon 2, Infinity, or similar scenarios.)

Marathon Infinity Upscaled Monsters (Art)

There were some manual edits done to the fighter shapes to keep their staves/glow maps consistent between frames. The inconsistencies were obvious with the higher definition monsters, so thanks to Aaron for cleaning up the originals.
