Where to get Descent Missions
« on: April 05, 2010, 09:36:41 PM »
Need to get a Descent mission/level?  And PlanetDescent.com is offline?

Here is another way you can get to that massive collection of missions:

Go to:  http://d3fischlein.de/ (Descent3fischlein.de) and click on "Levels" (button along the left).  You can select what language to display in (German or English, German is default) once you're on that page.  Enjoy!  8)

Do_Checkor is the person who has actually provided the hosting of the mission files for all these years for PlanetDescent.com. PlanetDescent.com just provided a database and listing of them.  Do_Checkor has been working hard with Fischlein to provide another listing of the missions, and to provide the listing in both German and English. They have done terrific work.  Our heart felt thanks to them both.  Thank you, thank you.

The site uses frames, thus you can't directly go the the English listing of the missions... without losing the menus on the left.

Again, many thanks to Do_Checkor and Fischlein!  You guys are awesome!  8)

Cool!  Very nice!  (I like the layout and options very much)

Hey, there are even new missions we hadn't heard about at PD.com!  :D

(most of them at the site are Descent 1 and 2 levels)

I decided this thread should be stickied.

I am hosting a bunch of Descent 1 and 2 missions on my website, too - both for single- and multiplayer. Check my site's side scrolling menu for the links.

All missions on my site have been hand picked by me - so you will not have to sift through tons of crap there.

Please don't take this as an advertisement of my site - everybody in the Descent community knows about it anyway. ;) This is a service for Descent fans looking for good missions.

As long as it's relevant, I don't see any reason not to provide a link to your site... We're not here to compete, that's what the mines are for!  :o

Anyway, you might find some more interesting links here.

It's true - you can pretty much guarantee high-quality missions if you download from Karx's site. Most require XL (understandably), however, but a few non-XL missions, such as "Descent: Vignettes," are available.  ;)
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

"Most require D2X-XL"?

That statement is only true for the missions I have built.

With a few exceptions (like Pumo mines and the new missions built by Yokelassence) the missions in my level spotlight and single player missions area work with standard Descent 1 or 2, since I simply collected all good missions I could find on PlanetDescent and a few other places. There are about 100 multiplayer missions for Descent 1 and 2, and 30 or 40 single player missions that all work with vanilla Descent 1 or 2.

Karx is right. Originally, there were a healthy dose of XL-only levels, but that was some time ago. Now, there's quite a wide variety of D1, D2, and XL levels.

* D2Junkie stands corrected

But the point still stands: they're all good.  ;)

Isn't there also a giant download of all the missions on your site, arranged by author?

Yes, there is. Since the missions are sorted in subfolders there, it's only suitable if you are using D2X-XL, or just want your missions to be nicely ordered. It is about 128 MB in size currently.

Good reminder to update it.

I can mirror any files needed for level hosting. My site is currently down or I'd link you all to my Descent files archive. I keep it for my own use and others that need it, as well as for posterity.

d3jake happened to link me this yesterday: http://www.pooterman.com/

It appears to have quite a good amount of missions.

I can mirror files as well. I dont have a fancy archive or anything, but I can throw it up on a server for download.
