Is it really possible to create unlimited levels using just map edit? I think it is. I do not know how anyone could run out of levels.

On another note though, If you just used a map editor and did not edit the graphics, couldn't you run out of levels to create? Can an unlimited amount of levels be generated using the regular Wolfenstein 3D graphics? I wish there was a probability of how many levels that can be created.

In the super upgrades advert, it said that unlimited levels can be created.

Is it possible to exceed the many different design combinations? Couldn't this happen? If this were the case, it is not possible to create unlimited levels.

I still think it is possible to create unlimited levels.

It really depends on how strict you are with your definition of a different looking level. If you count every single permutation, it's not unlimited, but is extremely high. If you go by the general "feel" of each level, you'll start to narrow things a good bit.

Since a Wolf3D map is 64 by 64 tiles, there are a total of 64 * 64 tiles on the map, which is 4096.

Considering only two states for each tile (block or empty space), the total number of possible maps is 2 ^ 4096, which is more than 10 ^ 1233.

If you created a new map every Planck time, it would take more than 10 ^ 1100 years to create all those maps.

The universe will be dead long before then.

Matthew, meet me at my house 10^1100 years from Tuesday. Bring your 1,100 wives, 1,100 girlfriends, & 1,100 Wolfenstein 3D levels. We'll discuss Wolfenstein 3D map making, astrophysics, & the metaphysical.

Yesterday, I had 10^100 unlimited Wolfenstein 3D Dreams: http://diehardwolfers.areyep.com/viewtopic.php?t=7364 . OK, I'm kidding!
