9 levels. This may be the most difficult scenario you will ever play.
Here's a review from the only person I know that completed it.
I just finished Ra'thor (except for the hidden level, which I did not find the entry point for).
"I've been playing Marathon since late '95, and think I'm a pretty good player, but your scenario is hands down the most difficult I've ever played. In fact, I'd say it's pretty near impossible to beat on Total Carnage, especially the last 3 vacuum levels. I freely admit that I cheated constantly for oxygen and once or twice for ammo (especially on Igor Ra'thor), and occasionally used Forge. I do have a life, and I just didn't have the time (or desire) to play those levels over and over again to reach the level of perfection needed to complete them on the available oxygen or ammo (at least what I could find). I believe I never cheated for shields, but I may be mistaken. It took me a long time to get through the maps, so memory fades. You made free use of hidden switches that made things that much harder".

Notes for version I:
This scenario was created back in 1998 and is based on Marathon EVIL. It's my original version and is meant to be almost impossible to complete. I'm working on an updated version that will be much easier and include 2 new levels...Version II coming soon!

Colony Mod 1.3.1
skraeling on Dec 27th 2015
This is 1 single player map. It was supposed to be part of a 3 map intro to an 11 map campaign that started a year ago. I'm hoping to get the next two maps added over the next month. Doubt I'll ever find the time to create the full campaign.
New physics file, new shapes file, and the merged map file are included in the download.
Physics of monsters has been modified so they act a little different.
The behavior of every gun has been modified. No assault rifle.
No new art.
If you're getting frustrated or just want to goof around, there's a secret door right at the start which leads to a Cheat Room containing all the guns and a recharger.
Notes for version 1.3.1:
-Added 3rd level
-Changed shotgun behavior
-Added terminal explaining new pistol behavior to 1st level, also added ammo
-Added sounds to 2nd level
-Included physics and shapes file, along with infinity's original music and sound files
-12/28/15: made a change so that you actually transport to level 3 after level 2

Switch on Jun 1st 2011
Simplici7y is a file sharing web application for the Aleph One community, written in with Ruby on Rails and hosted alongside The Pfhorums.
The project is named after a 7-polygon mapping challenge, which focuses on doing more with less.
When Fileball.org suffered downtime in early 2007, Jon Irons saw the need to fill the gap as soon as possible. He came to me with his idea for a new project. Jon's support was fundamental to the development and successful launch of Simplici7y, and I consider this project his as much as it is mine.
Simplici7y came online on the second anniversary of The Pfhorums. After Fileball.org was destroyed in a fire, S7 became the de facto place to publish. In the 4 years it has been online, there have been over 150,000 downloads, 300 items and 800 reviews.
Notes for version :
- Added the ability to host projects outside of Simplici7y
- Moved the project to github
- User interface improvements
- Visual improvements
- Stronger buttons
- Thinner header
- Moved links to the new footer
- Added more tags to the sidebar
- Improved many of the forms
More in the six year anniversary thread on the Pfhorums.

Arms Race 1.0
irons on Aug 18th 2015
Ryoko asked me to re-create the "Arms Race" game type from Counterstrike in Aleph One. Here's my attempt.
From the man himself:
Basically it's an EMFH script where everyone starts with rockets, and after each kill you get demoted to a weaker weapon, and the winner is the first person to get a kill with fists.

Glamdring on Oct 20th 2015
Cataract Bowl is amateur effort by a first time mapper, intended more as a learning experience than as a truly great map. At this stage I am still learning shading, which is why it's so dark; and my premises are straightforward and individually tested, which is why it's so tiny.
Cataract Bowl [XS] is a round, bowl-shaped level, 13 WUs across, with exterior walls 1.3 WU above the deepest point in the center. The mild mancannons on the outer walls were designed to send anybody impacting on them flying straight back toward the center, but in practice the actual effect is that anybody running along the outer wall picks up a great deal of speed if they maintain the correct angle, and otherwise simply propel one safely to the opposite side of the bowl.
Open to criticism, or mention of any errors or bugs I have not noticed in my testing so far.
Notes for version 0.8:
Small changes to weapons and ammunition since testing in the meta.

If you aren't familiar with Paradise Lost, download the original here: http://www.simplici7y.com/items/paradise-lost
This is basically the same thing as Paradise Lost, but the maps are divided into four separate packs based on the chronological and stylistic period in which I made them.
This project is intended for people that only like a certain group of PL maps, and/or need or want help organizing them. This is the best I can do.
As a bonus of sorts, the maps SCB, Acid Rain, and Darkest Insurrection are also restored.

President People on Jul 7th 2010
The President's Eternal Shapes
This is an edited Eternal X v110b3 Shapes file. It replaces some of the Marine bitmaps with new ones that match the weapon being held.
Notes for version 3.0:
Messed with some color tables in EVIL to get the Marine's Pfhor Staff graphics, and also a less pixellated version of the weapon's item graphic.
Replaced the Havoc Rifle's grenade clip item with a cleaner version.
Both the Napalm Canister's and the Pistol Clip's bitmaps have smoother ones in their place, though I don't think they were used.
Added 3 new bitmaps to the Nightmare sequences. It can now appear diagonally from behind.
Changed the colors of the Pfhor Staff water scenery item to match the monster's theme. I'm not sure if this was used in the game, though.
Experimental. Changed the color of one of the alien scenery lamps (The one that looks like a staff crystal) to match the Pfhor Staff's. NOTE: Two files are included in this folder. The one marked with a * contains the latter changes. Try them both and see what you think.

Survival 2.0 1.5.1
Benoit on Jun 13th 2016
I released a new survival script for marathon infinity based on the first one made by MegaByte.
In This Edition:
Continuous wave of aliens, rather than round based combat.
The number of spawned aliens is capped at 50, in order to avoid AI frozen monsters.
Almost every type of monsters are used. They spawn from the easiest to the hardest to fight.
Bobs are included to help the player. A random invincibility power up will also spawn in the map to call in bobs when picked up.
The script works on almost all maps. Aliens can sometimes spawn in unreachable places but the script will handle this. Just ignore it. The script works better on some maps.
Players health will regenerate after some time if they're not taking damage.
The rest of the rules should be the same that in the first survival. Including reviving mates, if everyone dies the game ends,...
Some settings can also be modified in the lua script like regenerating life, bob powerup, dead body boucing, ...
I advise to play in normal mode until 3 or 4 players. It will be hard enough. Major damage is good for 4 to 6 players and total carnage for more.
Warning : Do not host it with HD Monsters Texture or it will crash. The game must load all monster collections and HD Monsters Texture will cause an insufficient ram error.
Also do not host on any maps that are extremely large or small because monster generation is based on the area and size of each level.
Thanks to aquateenhgrfrce for his suggestions and his help for testing the script.
Notes for version 1.5.1:
1.2 : A survival generator has been implemented. You can now customize the survival by choosing your opponents, your allies, the different levels of difficulty and the probability of spawning for each monster. You will find it in the zip folder with the survival script and the folder "Ressources" containing images for the generator. You need Java to execute it. Place the application Survival_Generator.jar in the same folder that the folder "Ressources" then you can run it.
1.3 : Ask it and you got it. I made updates for the application just for you WindBreaker :D You can now load an existing survival file in the application to make modifications. You can also edit the time of a round. But you can only load survival scripts which have been created with the generator and which have not been manually modified (except for the settings of course) That means you can't load the original survival 2.0 script but you can load the one in the actually zip folder which has been generated with the application.
1.3.1 : The display of the timer after 1 hour of gameplay has been fixed. Thanks HailErdogan to have found that bug.
1.4 : Monsters dead animation has been fixed. If you noticed when a monster dies, his body does not move and can sometimes be frozen, floating in the air. Same thing for the drones/juggernauts which often explode in the air. All is properly working with this version. These corrections also improve the fluidity of the game, that's why I really advise you to use this version.
Addition : a new functionnality has also been implemented with this version. (disabling/enabling in the settings of the script) You can teleport to the plateform you are aiming by pressing the microphone key. You need your oxygen bar full to use it and teleport will drain it. The bar will fill up with the time.
1.5 : Monsters won't spawn anymore in unreachable areas except for maps which don't have hill. In this case, the script will work like for the version 1.4.
- Disconnected players are not displayed anymore with the minimal display.
- Sometimes the character of a player who get disconnected could stay alive, he now correctly dies.
- When you generate a script with allies major or minor aliens and play it with an opposite difficulty, for instance, minor aliens with total carnage difficulty, only major aliens will spawn and they won't be friendly. This has been fixed.
Comment : If you want to use the generator to make your own script with the script's latest version, you obviously need to use the latest version of the generator.
Let me know if you find some bugs or if you have suggestions.
