New D1 level set WIP: Nefarious Assault

Post by Sapphire Wolf » Mon Aug 30, 2010 3:33 pm

I'm currently working on a 16+3 level set for Descent 1 called 'Nefarious Assault', It'll feature robot sound replacements (mostly from Descent 2), custom textures for each level (within each .DTX files for Rebirth, and within the 'mods\\nefarius\\textures\\levelxx' directory for XL), and perhaps new soundtrack.
(note: In rebirth, try playing the Mission with NO cockpit)

Here are the links to the screenshots of level 1:

Okay, I've decided to release a 8+1 levels demo version of Nefarious Assault
Here's the file:
http://www.enspiar.com/dmdb/viewMission.php?id=359

(I've also implemented Xeria Base Dreena (now named in Nefarious Assault, Base Dreena, Seraph Mine, and Dragon Pit Outpost into the set, I'll implement Mount Dawn into the final version)
And here are the screenshots of each level (in order ending with the secret level screenshot):

I really like it, the levels are well built, and I especially enjoyed the new ones (level 6 in particular was nice with the hell falcon). I hadn't played Seraph Mine before either, and I was pretty impressed with it, seeing as (I think) it was made a while before even Dragon Pit Outpost.
But I have one minor point of criticism:
The class 1 drone's \"Rawr\" noise gets really grating really fast. You might want to change it to a less obtrusive noise than the Omega Defense Spawn (which was a far rarer robot to face than the class 1 drone :P).

Also what kind of music will you have in the final version (midi, ogg... what genre, is it from another game, y'know that kind of stuff)? Just curious. (You don't technically need midi for D1 missions anymore, since D1X-Rebirth now supports ogg soundtracks inside hog files).

(Apologies for the 2 years old thread bump)

The beta file has been updated with a lot of tweaks with the implementation of the Texture Mapping tool for DLE.

Sample Screens of the tweaks-
Level 1:

Level 4:

Secret level 1:

Known goof: In level 4 in the blue area, there is a excess grating alignment when viewing the Pseudo-outdoor area.
