Equinox is a limit-removing 13-level mapset for Doom II, created by Bernard De Windt (B.P.R.D) and released on November 21, 2001. It was listed as one of the Top 100 WADs of All Time by Doomworld in 2003. Equinox is known for its large-scale architecture, which had a tendency to crash some source ports at the time of its release.

  • The music for maps 1,2 and 13 are mentioned by B.P.R.D on his old Doomology website with the following:
    "Well, the music isn't actually fully mine, at all... I just added beats and stuff to others peoples music that I got. Level 1 music is a back-choir of an Enya song that has a beat to it, level 2 music is a little snippet of Chariot Of The Gods that I looped over and over and added some choir to it. I stole the music from Level 13 from a dead kid's web site. The kid (sorry, can't remember his name or find the site) who is now dead actually made that piece of music and he wanted that music to be played at his funeral if he died (which, coincidentally enough, he did) Its got that 80's movie fantasy about it, like something from a Stephen Spielberg movie, or from The Exploreres or something."
  • Bdw Hell, a previous attempt by B.P.R.D to make a 32 map megawad, is an early iteration of Equinox. Notably, its first map has a similar layout and texturing to Equinox's MAP01.
