What do you think are the best two mods Gary Ragland made? If you haven't played at least four of them, please make only one choice. I included all of them for completeness, even ones less likely to be picked.

This is pretty tough. Other than New 30, I don't think Gary Ragland has a weak set and even that isn't bad for a first set.

I voted Schabbs 2000 and Countdown to Disaster. Schabbs 2000 was his magnum opus. Countdown to Disaster is also excellent and I feel it is underrated. I really love the somewhat convoluted, abstract layouts of many of the maps.

Schabbs 2000 hands down. I do love Assassinate Hitler as well though it wasn't until much later, when the SDL port was tested, that I managed to play the entire Countdown to Disaster which I likewise remember as being very, very good and why the hell didn't I play it back then originally. Leiche Soldat was a pleasant surprise but the gameplay got - dare I say it - a little bit tedious at times, which Schabbs 2000 never, ever did. I can still play it and it feels fresh. The usage of color, guards and intricate design making rather small levels feel like giants is pretty much unparalleled by any other author.

Episode Four I likewise enjoyed, only wish it had been a bit longer... New30 I can't remember. But I know I've played it at one point or other.

Schabbs 2000, but I must admit I have some catching up to do on Gary's mod. I believe I only played Leiche Soldat, apart from it. Not sure though, entirely possible I played some of the others as well. But Schabbs 2000 is brilliant!

Currently in the middle of a replay of Assassinate Hitler. This mod was a huge, huge influence on me back in the days when I was doing stuff like Armageddon and TRTN. What really stands out to me about this mod is how Gary makes design choices that aren't considered "best practice" actually work well. Things like small, cramped rooms, convoluted layouts, mazes, etc aren't easy to pull off but he does it.
