|This mod was a runner-up for the 2018 Cacowards on Doomworld!|
Magnolia is a set of three Boom-compatible maps released by Zachary Stephens (Ribbiks) in 2018. Like many of his past works, this wad alters the palette to allow for a range of teal and magenta colors to replace a wide variety of the original shades.
Unlike many popular WADs, Magnolia does not contain an Ultra-violence configuration, perhaps in an effort to convince players to play the lesser skill levels first. The fourth, bonus map is included, but it does not offer any enemies or resources, and cannot be completed.
The WAD was named as a runner-up at the 2018 Cacowards.
- Teal cyberdemon
- These teal-coloured cyberdemons are functionally identical to their original counterparts. However, they only have 1000 hit points, the same as a baron of Hell, making them much weaker by comparison. They can also in-fight with regular cyberdemons due to being a replacement for the spiderdemon, and this ability is used for a great number of monster puzzles in the WAD.
- Evil eye
- Once a simple decoration, the evil eye has now gained a plasma attack identical to that of the arachnotron. It is stationary, invulnerable, and will not stop firing until the player moves out of its line of sight. It replaces the Wolfenstein SS.
- The baron of Hell does not count towards the kill percentage.
- The text file for Magnolia at one point read "~ for magnolia_uv.wad, send a hmp playthrough to firstname.lastname@example.org".
