A new type of Descent secret level entrance

Post by LightWolf » Thu Jun 16, 2016 12:13 pm

Ok, it does use the D2 teleporter system, but with a few changes to make the illusion that you're flying down a shaft/tunnel into another part of the same level.

That's right, the secret level is a part of the base level. How to do it (if you didn't already figure out)?

1. Make a tunnel/shaft somewhere in your level
2. Make the exact same tunnel/shaft (as in copy/paste) the beginning structure of the secret level
3. Put a secret teleporter trigger about half way through
4. Put a normal exit trigger facing the opposite direction in the same spot of the secret entrance tunnel
5. Put the player spawn just in front of the exit trigger
6. (For D2X-XL users if/when possible) Mod the text from "Secret teleporter found, proceed to secret level" to "Secret entrance found, proceed to secret level"

Then you're done!

Cool idea. I never liked how secret levels were handled in D2. (I didn't like the levels either.)
