Slump, a random map generator for FreeDoom

Note: This project is now officially retired; I am now working on an OBLIGE fork called ObHack.

Slump is a random map generator for FreeDoom that is based on David M. Chess' SLIGE map generator.

Basically Slump is a fork of SLIGE that is optimized for making FreeDoom maps. In particular, Slump only places monsters that the FreeDoom artists have drawn in to maps; this way one can play FreeDoom without feeling that the game is incomplete.

The current version of Slump is version 0.003.02, released October 29, 2007. (click on link to download; GPG sig). A changelog and links to previous versions is at the bottom of this page. Also available is a Windows binary of Slump, a sample FreeDoom/Doom2 wad file (generated with "slump -seed 1 -rooms 7"), and full documentation for SLUMP.

Slump is relesed under the GPL with two optional requests added to the license:

Additionally, while not required for redistribution of this program, 
the following requests are made when making a derived version of 
this program:

* Slump's code is partly derived from the Doom map generator 
  called SLIGE, by David Chess.  Please inform David Chess of 
  any derived version that you make.  His email address is at 
  the domain "" with the name "chess" placed before 
  the at symbol.

* Please do not call any derivative of this program SLIGE.
Note: There is a, IMHO, far more advanced random map generator for DOOM/Heretic/etc. available called
