Here is where to post about the latest Commander Keen fangame or modification you've finished, a new website you've made, or another Keen-related creation.

Dead in the Desert Community Levelpack

Post by Mink » Sun Dec 25, 2011 3:31

It's been over nine months, but the first Galaxy community pack is:

! ! ! DONE ! ! !

Thanks for submitting so many levels, everyone, the turnout was great, especially for a mod that was harder to level for than the usual Vorticons fare:

Ceilick (1 level)
Fleexy (1 level)
GARGAppleSauce (1 level)
Gridlock (4 levels)
Keenfan (1 level)
Kuliwil (1 level)
lemm (1 level)
Mink (2 levels)
_mr_m_ (1 level)
Neek (2 levels)
Paramultart (1 level)
Tulip (1 level)
VikingBoyBilly (2 levels)


Huge thanks @ Gridlock for helping me get this out the door and for making so. many. levels.

And have fun guessing who made which level(s) (and/or remembering which are your own -- it's been a while :dopekeen). I'll put up the list of who made what in let's say a week or so.

P.S. There're some bugs (like music not playing in levels 11 and 18 ), but I tried to edit everyone's levels as little as possible so blame whoever made the level! 8)

P.P.S. Oops, forgot to thank lemm for some great patches; thanks, lemm.

Owh man, haven't finished the eight accumulators and already we get this.

Reminds me of when I was young... getting another keen game before I finished the previous one. :D




Thanks guys. :)



edit: get this on the keen wiki please
edit2: rofl, I died in "keen doesn't consider this a level"... who made that one?
edit3: teleporting thing on the world map does not work properly. I landed in the lava and can't go anywhere.

That means a lot. I worked really hard on it.

Do you think that you would have fooled me with this statement for a second?

But hey, the level just made me laugh and thrilled me more than any of the other levels. :)

This thing still isn't glitch free, but Mink and I are working on it and hope to have things ironed out soon. Thanks to everyone who contributed! This is a really fun pack. I can't wait to hear some of the guesses.

Glitches I am aware of so far:

1. When you use the hydro transport elevator on the right, it is super difficult to get out of the passageway there, so you may need to use F10 N
2. The level "The Volcano" has the wrong music.
3. There is an occasional crash in Stalagburn Caverns in the area to the left of the blue gem.

Remember that in-level glitches are a result of their original authors. We will fix these if we can, however. Please don't be offended if any parts of your level have been edited. We tried to keep most of them as close to their original forms as we could.

A new version is coming with bug fixes and other stuff, just so you know. Merry Christmas :christmas

Edit: There might be a suprise for whoever can figure out how to reach the secret level. :mortlol

And isn't PARAMULTART written in the background of "Keen doesn't consider this a level" anyhow?

I noticed it too. That's why he was working so hard on it.
Also in one of the levels, VBB.
