DIY is a 32-map community megawad for MBF21-compatible source ports. Originally hosted by xvertigox, the project was picked up and seen to the finish line by ViolentBeetle when the former host seemingly disappeared for a long time and no progress was made after a while. The project employs an aesthetic (partly) inspired by Spendoragon's 1 Bad Wad, with minimalistic, solid-color textures.

My contribution to DIY occupies the MAP18 slot, and it bears the name "Zeusian Circles". It's a series of floating, circular platforms in a white void, with gameplay that leans towards the slaughter style. Scattered around the platforms are three skull keys that ultimately open the exit. I speedmapped the map in about 90 minutes, so it's really nothing too special, but I had fun with making it.
