DeePsea (formerly DeeP97) is a level editor and WAD resource manager for Doom engine games. It has full support for Doom, Doom II, Heretic, Hexen, Strife and any source port via custom configuration files. 3D texture alignment uses a variant of the Risen3D GL port, R3Dedit. Since R3Dedit is based on Risen3D, it is able to provide a view of a level with normal skies, as well as optionally showing the placement of all sprites. R3Dedit has been replaced with a new interface called R3DeeP as of version 13.0.5.

It was developed by Jack Vermeulen and Brad Kiefer, and was originally a shareware application sold commercially by Sensor Based Systems, Inc. before being made free in 2018. For the unregistered version, there was no time limit, but the maximum size of levels a user could create was limited to 800 linedefs or 1200 sidedefs. DeePsea stalled in development for slightly over 11 years until January 25, 2023, with the release of version 13.0.5.

Features[edit]

All PWAD tools are unlimited in the shareware version.

  • Map editor with 3D texture alignment (supports both line drawing or sector drawing)
  • Level error checking
  • Lump management tools
  • Create PWADS and IWADS
  • Import/Merge/Export any file (including WADS) with duplicate error checking

In addition, pressing the F7 key allows the user to access almost every feature within the program.
