MAP06: Research Complex is the sixth level of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Jakub Razák (Method) and uses the track "CCCool" from Rise of the Triad by Lee Jackson, which is reused in MAP14: Dog Eat Dog.

Inspiration and development[edit]

Method's comments from the text file:

Another Method's nice techbase. I liked to play this one. Finally you will meet first KS cybie.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the starting area, look to your right (east). You will notice a flickering panel. Pressing it will reveal a shotgun, a box of shotgun shells, and a green armor. (sector 9)
  2. From where you grab the blue key, look south. You will notice a marble wall with the icon of sin's face on it next to the arch-vile's face. Shoot it to reveal a backpack near your position. (sector 359)
  3. After you teleport near the catwalk that leads to the yellow key, instead of going forward, turn around (face north), and press another icon of sin's face on marble. Behind that wall, you will find two boxes of rockets and a soulsphere. (sector 260)
