Secrets[edit]

  1. At the southernmost part of the level, there is a pillar bearing a super shotgun. At the northwest of the area is a switch on the east side of the building. Press the switch to lower the pillar, and then run onto the pillar before it rises to get the super shotgun and trigger this secret. (sector 1049)
  2. To the south of the building containing the red skull key, one of the bookshelves appears brighter than the others. Push it to lower it, revealing a box of rockets. (sector 1064)
  3. Beyond the red door, the southeast side of the building to the west features a patch with more prominent gaps between bricks than the rest of the wall. Press on it to lower it, allowing access to 12 health bonuses, two rockets, and a rocket launcher. (sector 641)

Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]

At the start of the project, the MAP06 slot was occupied by Black Void, while MAP27 was occupied by Gimmer. Because of a death in the family, Black Void had to drop out of the project on May 23, 2007. The MAP06 slot was subsequently occupied by Gimmer on June 9, 2007, leaving the MAP27 slot vacant. Two days later, the MAP27 slot would be taken by Eric Baker (The Green Herring), who would contribute MAP27: Ruby Abyss to the project.

This level started development on June 9, 2007, and was completed in only three days. Upon its completion on June 11, 2007, the level was briefly released to the public by mistake, but was subsequently removed and submitted privately.

Trivia[edit]

  • Foregone Destruction is also the title of a music track in Unreal Tournament, best known for it's use in CTF_Face map
