"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.

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.

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…”

This is another solo level for Shadervoid, findable here: http://simplici7y.com/items/marathon-shadervoid-the-labyrwraths-of-growth. It's Extermination, so return to the starting tile after killing everything.

Screenshot titled ""Through Havoc's Various Nodes [M]""

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".

Screenshot titled "Triangle one"

[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.

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 Netmaps 62

Adminn_1 on 04/02/2023

Screenshot titled ""Essence-Core in the Tornado Eye"."

Happy 50-map landmark! Here's to more.

[2023-04-01 - The following have been added over the past week:

"Classical Contraption Contemplation"

"Drive of Constant Flux Maintenance"

"Initiatory Perspectival Pathsetting"

"Jousters on the Frame Warp"

"Shared Fray-Urge Unconscious"

"At the Underground Mesmer"

"Confinement Contemplations Weaponized"

"The Untapped Bond Point Come to Life".]

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).

[PLEASE READ BELOW]

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.

In this Aleph One Marathon scenario shell by NEFX, survive as long as you can and rack up as much time and score as you can fighting against intensifying waves of Pathways Into Darkness enemies with Pathways Into Darkness weapons. Like with Marathon: Machina, every level is open-ended, and there is nothing particularly won or lost except your competition with yourself and anyone else who dares to take on the Underrealm challenge and share their exploits. Good luck, endless fighter! There may well be more levels to come to be experienced in any order desired.

[Credit to Windbreaker for the title.] "Until they've searched thoroughly, one can never be clean." In this scenario, you get to spend a bunch of time cleaning up a space of its filth balls with your trusty Yucatan Suckaman™ vacuum cleaner. But watch where you step, and be sure to empty the bag often so the vacuum cleaner doesn't explode!

Notes for version 2023-10-12:

Today I added the 50th map made for Marathon: Sucks, "The Fracturing of the Husked Civilization Stations". This can be downloaded individually or with other maps or the scenario itself at the provided link.

Being able to rally however many players you want on-demand for any map you want to play on without the players saying "no" to it is a dream come true, and it's a good form of training at any rate that requires a different set of approaches and strategies to optimize your scores. It's enough to warrant competing with other humans for botmatch scores within different parameters, in addition to competing against people directly in netgames. There are of course some limits that we may overcome someday, such as not having different randomized color tables for the same weapon class, or the bots not being affected by liquid velocity. I've also done some personal modification to make bots drop their weapons upon death, since sometimes in netmaps (especially in the older netmaps) you can have an instance where there's only a little weaponry in a remote or hidden spot and you're forced to eat shit over and over because that causes bots to spawn already with that weaponry. Overall, however, this is a revolutionary invention for Marathon gaming that opens up many doors and allows an experience that even human deathmatch can't completely reach (though the same is also true in reverse). Take a look at the Lua script sometime, it's educational.

It's true.

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.
