About the Gates of DooM
Pink Floyd aficionados will immediately recognize the reference to their album "Piper at the Gates of Dawn". It seemed fitting to create the Gates of DooM, and have you the visitor be the Piper that seeks entry through the Gates.
The Maps have all been previously released, and all are available at 3darchives.in-span.net. This site, therefore, is primarily meant to be some sort of repository for those maps. However, the "What's Not Old" Page will serve to provide updates on any new project on which I may be working.

Being a military installation there are armories, barracks, security posts, holding cells, and a Medical Center. There is even an Administration section (with offices), as well as bathrooms, a lounge, and vending machines. Plus lots of human and alien enemies!
