Something like that. I'm still working out the details in my head. Hence why the sketching will be useful, because that'll help sort those things out.

As for the exit, I'm for either idea, so it's really down to what everybody else thinks. For the teleporter idea, I was think there could still be a rush to get there, and maybe also a need to activate it in some way before it can be used.

Personally, logistically thinking, I think the teleporter would work better, because the exit tunnel would be caved in, and have to be cleared before used in some way (and I have a few ideas to cover that should we go in that direction). That, and I would think that the exit tunnel door would already be open (I mean, why would the aliens need to close it?). The teleporter would bypass those thought problems. That, and it would force the player to travel a different route to escape the mine.

But the exit tunnel would work too, and it IS classy...:P

Someone has already remade a large number of the textures, including doors, from D1.  They were posted on the old site and I did grab all of them.  I'll have to look for them in my back-up discs.

Hmm, I only ever remember one set like that ever arising, and if it's the textures I'm thinking of WillyP, then they won't work with D3 (too big and too high a resolution). They were instead used for D2X-XL, as it could handle it, assuming you had a powerful enough system to render them in-game.

But if you have some that work with D3, then by all means. :)

PS: first sketches hopefully to appear soon! :D

Any image that is too big and high resolution can be reduced. I have used them, there are some in ReFactor, IceFactor and some other levels I have made.  I have also made some doors in D3 from the door sets.

Oh, and I just remembered, they were made by Novacron.

Yea, I remember them too...

BTW, Speaking of doors, I was preparing the original D1 door found in Level 13... I'm almost done with Modelling&Texture alignment, but I'll need someone to convert it to an *.OOF file-The OOFEditor refuses to work, and I'm not so used to alOOF... So I'll just lend it as *.ORF for conversion...

UPDATE: I've just finished the *.ORF, pictures below...

That's so sweet!
That's an awesome rendition to one of my all time favorite doors from Descent. Great work you did here Shroudeye!  :)

So, Pumo; can you turn this door to *.OOF? I'm looking someone to do it for me...

I think we have an oof of this door already in one of the AOH levels (8 sided star I believe).

I remember the doors from D2 lv 2 in there. And the SFX.

@ WillyP: Yep, that's the textures I'm thinking of, and I remember somebody distinctly mentioning that at the presented resolution that they wouldn't work in D3, and nobody really mentioned if it could be fixed. Glad to hear that they're not unusable, though, certainly makes things easier on our part. :)

Though, now that I think about it, we may want to take the time to "rough" up some of those textures in some shape or form to make it more fitting for the beaten, aged, and damaged theme this level would be shooting for.

@ Shroudeye: Beautiful door, me likes! Can't wait to see it animated. :D

It will be, I just need someone to animate it (See above post of mine, where I posted the pics, for reason why) - I'll send the *.ORF file to anyone interested, just PM me...

Wish I could do it, but unfortunately, I've never done something like that and wouldn't know where to begin. :-\

But in other news, here's the first sketch I've managed to put together! More to follow soon, hopefully! :)

Good going, Scyphi. I'll examine your sketch in more detail and leave some comments soon...
