Not bad. Visually interesting in parts, especially the iconic paintings on walls. You don't see that very often. I like the Honey look to the second map that gives it a bit of scale and atmosphere. Quite a few areas are far too dark as well.

As far as gameplay goes, it's a bit predictable and janky. Spawning enemies was never something I liked, and in the first map I cheesed one encounter by just standing behind some boxes while the AI failed to get to me.

An opportunity was missed to add more secrets to these maps, there are hardly any at all. I saw plenty of areas where there could've been something to keep the pace going, but it felt a bit empty. Add more secrets!

Until Quaddicted is updated, there is a new version of the map with a couple of big fixes available here:

I like this release very much, but please to fix the save ability on second and third map.

The link for 1.3 that ubiquitous shared above is borked, due to Markdown interpreting the underscores. Here's a shot at a correct URL:

Solomoriah Registered, rated this a 5 20 August 2019, 0:45

Ack. I'm having the same problem cosmaty reported, where the engine crashes if I try to save the game on the 2nd map. The same problem I always have with Danzadan's maps.

ubiquitous Registered 20 August 2019, 8:25

@ cosmaty, Solomoriah: which engine are you using? I saw a number of people play successfully with QS.

cosmaty Registered, rated this a 5 20 August 2019, 21:23

@ ubiquitous: I use QuakeSpasm 0.93.0 for Linux. This is not issue only for your map, but some new maps have this one. I read somewhere the problem could be because of memory and solve by proper map compilation, but I have no skills for find a real reason. Anyway, congratulation for great epizod :)

Ubiquitous, just FYI, I've posted some suggestions about fixing the crash-on-save bug in your thread on func_msgboard.

ubiquitous Registered 26 August 2019, 10:41

New Version Okay, using the suggestion of iw, I have produced a new version (1.4) that should hopefully fix the save bug. It can be obtained from Quaketastic here:

cosmaty Registered, rated this a 5 26 August 2019, 19:47

@ ubiquitous: Thank you for fixing the save issue. Now I could finish your episode that was great in every part of level design and gameplay. I am looking for your next work soon. I hope you keep going.

Very fun set of maps. The paintings were a great touch.

Solomoriah Registered, rated this a 5 18 October 2019, 4:06

Yes, the save bug is fixed for me too, and I'm loving it!

whirlstr Registered, rated this a 3 29 October 2019, 1:26

Overall decent episode, but it is very clear that the maps are in order of creation. All of the maps have nice visuals, but the first 2 suffer badly from awkward geometry, pitch-blackness, and repetitive gameplay. They feel very 90s (in a bad way). The third map is a big step up, a 4/5 on its own. It's fun to navigate, the gameplay is exciting, and there's some cool custom models put to good use (including a custom key). It's still a bit too dark though. The author must have a brighter monitor than I or play with a higher gamma, because there are several moments where something important simply can't be seen on default brightness.

I enjoyed this a lot, but without picking up any sense at all that it had anything to do with the Plantegenets. The artworks are lovely, though, and really add something.

MikeTaylor Registered, rated this a 4 22 November 2019, 12:22

@cosmaty @Solomoriah I too have suffered with the crash-on-save bug on many maps — not just the ones in this pack. I very recently upgraded from QuakeSpasm 0.93.0 to 0.93.2, and that seems to have fixed the problem. Hope it does the same for you!

ubiquitous Registered 27 November 2019, 23:15

@MikeTaylor: the reference to the Plantagenets is there, but is a bit subtle and requires some knowledge of literature as well as history...

MikeTaylor Registered, rated this a 4 28 November 2019, 0:10

@ubiquitous Are you going to spell it out? :-)

Gioyo3aa Registered, rated this a 5 11 January 2020, 22:43

Very nice, atmospheric and visually unique. I particularly liked the murals and the "misty lightings". Gameplay is tough at times but always reasonable.

ubiquitous Registered 12 January 2020, 22:20

@MikeTaylor the map titles "Seat of Mars", "Under Eastcheap", and "Into the Breach" are references to Shakespeare Plays (Richard II, Henry IV, and Henry V respectively). Those are three Plantagenet kings.

MikeTaylor Registered, rated this a 4 13 January 2020, 18:03

That's pretty subtle :-)
