MAP11: Transcension is the eleventh map of Speed of Doom. It was designed by Josh Sealy and uses Techno Ownage, an original track by James Paddock.

This map uses a forced suicide exit at the end to reset the player's inventory at the start of the next map.

Other points of interest[edit]

Secrets[edit]

  1. Shoot the gargoyle face behind you on the map start to find a berserk pack. (sector 61)
  2. After you enter the brown rock cave, head right along the nukage creek. Open the rocky wall with a different texture near the bars, use the face and carefully hop on top of the green wall nearby, and from it hug the rock wall to fall on a hair-thin ledge that you can follow to a supercharge. (sector 310)

Bugs[edit]

Linedef 55's back side has CEIL5_2 set as an upper texture, but CEIL5_2 is a flat. While most modern source ports should simply ignore it, both Boom 2.02 and MBF 2.03 on DOS will crash immediately, leaving the following error message at the DOS prompt.

"R_TextureNumForName: CEIL5_2 not found"

The SIDEDEFS lump can be edited manually to remove CEIL5_2 from linedef 55, allowing this map to run in Boom and MBF (no texture is required on this linedef's back side).
