NEFX Netmaps 55
Adminn_1 on Mar 28th 2023
Happy 50-map landmark! Here's to more.
[2023-02-12 - Two new NEFX netmaps have been added over the past week: "Condemned to the Hardtrack of Spools" and "Seal of the Contradiction Wonderlands". These 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 55:
[2023-03-27 - One new NEFX netmap has been added: "Jousters on the Frame Warp". This can be downloaded separately at the provided link directory or with the entire map pack itself if you don't already have it.]

NEFX Mods 4
Adminn_1 on Dec 22nd 2022
[2022-12-22 update: New script-and-physics combo added, "Realization Through Ensnarement". Another new Lua script was just added yesterday, "Bringing All Back to the Raw Cult".]
Thank you for playing NEFX Marathon Modifications. Among these are scripts and physics either for multiplayer, single player, or both. More may be added over time in future versions, so look out.
What do these do?
"Betrothing to the Forgotten Root of Potentiate"
This means you are permanently equipped with only a single pistol with unlimited ammunition and no way to dual-wield. This can make for some very interesting net games as you all learn to make do with what is probably the least-used multiplayer fighting option in Marathon history, even below fists. You will become a better player this way and make laughs along the way.
"Bringing All Back to the Raw Cult"
This script "flattens" levels into something reminiscent of Wolfenstein 3D (albeit less blocky). Specifically, it makes all floor heights 0, all ceiling heights 1, and all platform heights 0. It also makes all liquids in the level into rapid floors conveyors like you've come to know in NEFX maps. This may render many singleplayer levels unbeatable, mainly due to issues with platforms, but it can make for a new, interesting, and funny multiplayer experience.
"Funneled Spatial Remembrance"
This 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!
"Global Omnilode Onus - The Wire"
This is a multiplayer game mode in which whoever collects the most items wins. Each item you pick up gives you one point. An interesting thing about this is that items tend to respawn en masse after a player dies, meaning it further helps not only to kill others but also yourself!
"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).
"Realization Through Ensnarement"
In tribute to known historical NEFX practice and reference thereof by many Marathon community members, this script-and-physics combo randomly generates columns that block your way in a level. You can easily adjust the number of columns you want (enemy players) to deal with in the script. The columns are actually Tiny Pfhor that were modded to look and behave like columns -- stationary, completely idle, and not damaged by anything.
“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.
“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) -- a "starting blaster" if you will, reminiscent of games like Quake II or Unreal I. See how threatening the invinciwimpsi are now!
"Victory of Absurdist Balance By Inwardness"
This 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.
Notes for version 4:
2022-12-22 update: New script-and-physics combo added, "Realization Through Ensnarement". Another new Lua script was just added yesterday, "Bringing All Back to the Raw Cult".

eppy on Mar 19th 2022
Well! Some of you thought you wanted this. So it's here. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Notes for version 2.0:
This is the version that includes Bananas, not that map, which no one can prove exists.

Sticky Shoes 0.1
gumdrop9 on Dec 17th 2021
This is 3 netmaps. One is over 20 years old & out-of-touch with reality. One is completely stale & warmed over. One is a fresh stinking pile just made. I plan on adding to and updating these, so this is just a test version & I'll be happy to hear any feedback (on Discord). Thanks for trying them out!

You Underestimate My Power 1.0
ProfessorChubbs on Oct 2nd 2020
A medium-sized EMFH map inspired by the M1 level Bob-B-Q. The "trenches" in the middle of the map raise to the upper level every minute, changing who has the high ground. There's also a secret switch that reveals every two minutes that'll temporarily flood the lower level with lava.
This is the first map I've ever shared, so please give feedback; Assuming I don't lose interest in a week, I'll be happy to patch it.

Drought Arena v2
Xx_Henry_xX on Dec 15th 2019
lua script based on a quake mod named Rocket Arena where you get all weapons and ammo but no map items
The whole idea of this script is Surivive Longer = Less Ammo = Killing Gets Harder
Also Included: Rocket Arena where you only have rockets so that you can make someone pay
Note: This script has a side effect of being invulnerable to monster attacks
Notes for version v2:
Reworked self-damage conditions to give damage when the damage is environment-related
