Plutinya 1024 For Final Doom: Plutonia Released.
Sup, func_. I worked with one of the guys at doomworld to make some plutonia themed 1024 maps, Each of them Boom compatible.

How this worked was that each mapper had to make a playable area of the map within a 1024 grid confinement, utilize higher tier monsters (I.E. Mancubi, Revenants, Arch-Viles, and Chaingunners.),and then submit their map and wait for it to be reviewed, If reviewed, the mappers would respond to feedback and improve the map until it is given the OK.

Also, keep in mind that Zandronun, ZDoom, or PRBoom + is recommended to play this wad.

*REQUIRES FINAL DOOM - THE PLUTONIA EXPERIMENT TO PLAY!*

UE4 Whitebox Challenge
As you might know the base game of the new Unreal Tournament has been released and it's playable in multiplayer. Everyone with a current or former UE4 license can develop content for this game.

Your level should only feature basic geometry without textures and must be playable online. Your focus is to create a level that's fun to play without worrying about the visuals. You are free to decide how you are going to do that. Pick your game mode, add whatever you like to make sure that people enjoy playing against each other. Whitebox levels should contain minimal detail but this shouldn’t limit you if you want to go crazy.

This challenge will run from 01-09-14 to 28-09-14. The goal of this challenge is not to win prizes but to get familiar with UE4. We encourage you to submit your map on the Unreal site so that if your work is good enough, you might have a chance that it gets picked up.

..::LvL In August
Four reviews and five maps in this ..::LvL update. Top pick is a CTF release from Pat Howard. The others are re-makes and re-mixed version of id Software originals with various levels of success.

* Ironwood by Pat Howard
* Temples of Retribution by V1979
* The Very End of Reality by V1979
* The Yard Of Stone And Steel by Anthony Tullo

Videos and panoramas for all.

In other news the site should work a lot better on small screens (like phones). There is still some work to be done however.

Also, you can now directly, financially help ..::LvL by donating towards the server costs. Huge thanks to Hipshot for pushing me to get this done.
