My first finished D1 level. Kind of in the style of Descent Vignettes, I followed most of DarkFlameWolf's instructions for Vignettes when I built it despite not building it for the mission.

EDIT: I've updated it with different music (it seems I shoudln't have been using the original song even though I wrote it... :roll: -- it has to do with Descent WiiWare) but the new music should be a treat to D1 fans :cough: XFING :cough:. It's still fully synthesized ogg tracks, at least I didn't have to revert to midi. However, if you really want to play it in DOS Descent despite the eye-killing framerate there's also some original midi tracks in there too now -- a midi version of this song: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_so ... D=11431327, and a different song for FM soundness.

And last but not least I've added a couple more secrets and it's now co-op compatible!
So go ahead and re-download! The new link is...

More general information about the level:
Game: D1
Modes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Singleplayer: Yes
Coop: Yes
Anarchy: No
Size: Rather large, over 700 cubes, though much of that is detail.
Map Theme: Blue and purple alien caves, if you can call that a theme.
Custom textures: No
Custom robots: No, unless you play it with Wolfie's TEW mod in D2X-XL
Custom music: Yes, and the ogg music now works in both D1X Rebirth and D2X-XL (the ogg song has been changed but D1 fans will be happier). There is also an original midi song and a different original FM midi if you really want to play it in DOS Descent.

Download link:
The Violet Caves v6 000 000 000 & 1/2

So go ahead and re-download! The new link is...
Blargh... It looks like DMDB is having upload problems. I'm going to change the link to mediafire until I can convince someone else to host it.

I really enjoyed it. I think it's on par with the Paralax ones, so you should feel satisfied with your work. I died twice, and once was in the reactor room. I lost all my power-ups, but when I went back to get them I accidentally triggered the reactor and had to gtfo. I was sad there was no next level to jump to, but also relieved since I lost all my loot. :P

I believe I managed to get it onto DMDB months ago, hence the removal of the mediafire link from my previous post.
If not, I should still have it...
