A physics-to-JSON and JSON-to-physics utility that creates human-readable output useful for version control systems such as
git. You can then edit these JSON files using a text editor, another program, etc. and turn them into physics files. Also included are utility scripts for:
- viewing differences between
gitcommits for physics, between any two non-tracked files, or between some mixture of these
- retroactively building a parallel set of commits for a JSON version of one or more physics files' existing history
- automatically generating JSON for every committed physics file, bundling the JSON into the commit
Source code and binaries are available on my website; also available there are signatures for individual binaries. I recommend using them to verify whichever you might run.
For verification purposes, here is my public key fingerprint:
Notes for version rolling:
Rolling release based on the current production branch of code.
2021-09-08: added ability to generate binary physics files from JSON

Azure Dreams 2.0

Old maps. They're going up here for a few reasons: nostalgia, laughs, and in the event that someone has films that run on these levels. If you want something different (and maybe not in a good way), take a look in here. At least it has an extensive history of the life and times of the map pack. Oh man, I'm laughing so hard.

Territory is a new game type for team play. Red and Blue teams fight for control of a level, with scores based on floor area. Fun and simple.

My only good map pack.
Notes for version 666a9bed:
So Underworld isn't totally dead yet. I do make levels occasionally, and I've added two to this version: Parc and The Multiplex.
Parc was formerly known as Pillow, and has seen a few small-but-helpful improvements since its original appearance on Pfhorums. The Multiplex was my contest map for Ryoko's 2008 Summer mapmaking contest; it didn't even get into the Victory Dance VI pack, so I thought I'd release it here for posterity.

PRAHBLUM PEACK 304f6855
irons on Jun 5th 2008
Formerly called "Rejects," PRAHBLUM PEAK is the set of maps I culled from Underworld as I built that pack up to its glorious state. These aren't necessarily that bad, and I'm putting them online because there is (or was, at one point) a demand from some fans of my levels. These were usually the cheap players who loved how horrible the balance was, but I still appreciate their support. The README goes into pretty good detail for every level.
PP 304f6855 has six levels.

Coriolis Loop 1.000000000000001

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.
NOTE that the version you can download from Simplici7y will not work with old films recorded forever ago in the good old days. These sure as hell aren't the good old days. If you're trying to view an old film and Aleph One complains that it can't find the map file, get the original file here.
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.

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.

This is an attempt to mimic the gameplay of the old Joust arcade game. Players fly around maps and collide with each other to score kills. More detailed instructions await you in the README.
Notes for version 5.0:
This is the fifth attempt at a total Joust rewrite. Compatible with the latest version of Aleph One. Can be played on the EMFH, KOTH, and KTMWTB gametypes.

Capture the Falg 1.0.3
irons on Jan 23rd 2016
This script adopts W'rkncacnter's CTF script to the newer API. See the readme, the original CTF script, and the Magenta Filter maps for more information.
Notes for version 1.0.3:
This release hopefully fixes out-of-sync issues. It also adds messages for all flag statuses (taken, dropped, returned, scored). There are also screen faders for these events. Finally, the alert sound no longer plays if a player is constantly picking up his own flag (i.e. when it continuously respawns on the base polygon).
I highly recommend updating to this version.

This Lua script introduces a number of changes and tweaks in the mechanics of co-operative games. Version 2 has a number of improvements thanks to the new Lua API found in Aleph One v0.20.
See the Readme file for a whole lot more detail.
Notes for version 2.2:
Added a few minor changes, including one that allows the script to work with the post-1.0 betas.

JUICE is a Java-based--and, therefore, cross-platform--utility for editing map files. It can't replace a dedicated editor like Forge, but it is capable of editing several aspects of map files, most of which are geared toward fixing and tweaking network maps. For example, you can edit existing and place new level objects; you can change monster and item parameters; you can do some things that no other editor will let you do. If you're a mapmaker who needs to edit these sorts of things, but without consistent access to a Macintosh, give JUICE a try.
A manual is included, both in HTML and PDF forms.
v1.1.1 adds the ability to embed shapes patches.
v1.1 includes the long-anticipated texture converter.

POWERS is a new kind of Marathon gameplay. Instead of having an arsenal of weapons, the player carries only what is inside his mind—his POWERS.
POWERS works under Aleph One with any Marathon scenario, and, in theory, any game type. However, the best way to use your new POWERS is with a friend in Co-op mode! New challenges await you in your favorite levels, and you might find that your POWERS even enhance levels you never appreciated before. Just use the POWERS Lua script when you play!
Notes for version 3.0.1:
Total overhaul. See the Readme.
