Any Duke related dreams?

Last night I had an interesting Duke dream. It was about a space themed user map where I was on a ship and I was fighting assault troopers and enforcers but then I somehow managed to get outside of ship and I was using jetpack and looking at the spaceship from outside, as well as looking at the Earth. Then I saw some cannon that was firing at me with shrink rays and freeze rays, which is a bit similar to the level Overlord from original game where Overlord seems to shoot shrink rays at the Earth but in this dream it was also firing freeze rays and some energy bolts similar to the ones fired by Plasma Cannon in LameDuke. Well I was hit by shrink rays, so I shrunk and for some reason it shrunk me twice (it was also possible in original game to be hit by multiple shrink rays and after you returned to normal size, you shrink again) but in this case the shrink effected lasted longer. So I was still flying and trying to reach some kind of secret green room in an abandoned mini space ship which looked like those shuttles from Warp Factor but they were using green alien textures for some reason. After I reached the mini spaceship, the hands that show up when you are shrunk, started to look more like the ones from HRP and also a bit distorted, which looked really creepy and giving me impression that something was happening to Duke or maybe some side effect when he was returning to normal size.
After the shrink effect wore off, I reached an electrified room (it had generators and electrified floors). After I climbed on some platforms to deactivate the generators, I fell off, got electrocuted by the floor and died instantly but after a second, I got resurrected with full health (maybe the game automatically activated God Mode cheat?) and I was holding dual pistols at that time. I was confused because 1) I didn't remember activating God Mode cheat and 2) I thought I was playing unmodified Duke3D and not DukePlus or other mods that implement dual wielding pistols but I was thinking it probably comes with the user map, just like how many other user maps come with their own art files, con files, sounds, etc.
That's all I remember from the dream.

In first dream, I remember that there was a "downgraded" version of Doom 3 that was running directly on Quake 3 engine. In reality, Quake 3's engine is id tech 3, while Doom 3's engine is id tech 4. But in the dream, it felt more like a mod for Quake 3 than playing the real Doom 3. As such, I was running at fast speed through Doom 3 levels and there was more of the dream I can't remember.
In second dream, I remember that I was playing Quake 3 Team Arena against bots that are both from Arena and Team Arena but at one point the game changed and I was playing in a Quake 1 styled map with monsters from Quake 1 appearing and attacking me, while I was using Quake 3 weapons against them (the HUD at that time also changed to the one from Quake 1) and I had to make sure I don't get killed by either the monsters or the bots, either because I was trying a no death run or because it was following Quake 1 Single Player rules at that time. That was yet another one of those "crossover" dreams.
Last night I had a Duke3D style dream and I remember playing some map that had HUGE amounts of assault troopers and commanders and there was also an Overlord that spawned while fighting them. I remember this map was similar to the starting area of E1L1 (the roof part) but the monsters were all flying towards me and shooting each other while trying to shoot me, I was thinking maybe that way they can hurt the Overlord that stayed in middle surrounded by them, without me being involved (the fences were also set a "blocking flag" to block the monsters attacks but I could still throw some pipebombs if I aim above the fence). I think the map was a bit similar to one of the more recent MRCK maps, I'm thinking of Wide Awake that had a similar E1L1 roof setup at one point later in the map. After the level ended, it showed the stats screen but Duke didn't display in the right of screen as he usually shows up in the stats screen, instead it showed the level name "Lights Out" and in right lower corner, the difficulty misspelled as "Come Get Out" or something like that, both written in atomic edition font letters. That's all I remember from the dream.

Last night I had a dream about playing Duke3D on multiplayer (I don't remember if it was against bots or human players) but I know it was on a Christmas/snow themed map and it was running on a Freeze Tag like gametype with EDuke32 HUD enabled but the font was blue instead of red. I remember that all the weapons could freeze an opponent if their health reached 1, for instance I was using Shotgun and I was freezing players. I was also frozen once and I was basically stuck in this state because the server enabled option Last Man Standing, so you had to make sure to survive to win the match.

Last night I had a Shadow Warrior styled dream where I was in level 4 of the shareware episode, which is called Dark Woods of the Serpent and I was remembering it a lot more difficult than last time I played SW but maybe because in dream I was playing on No Pain No Gain difficulty instead of Who Wants Wang difficulty. The map was also significantly longer than before, the wood area being a lot larger than before and also being a bit foggy.

The second part of the dream was me with my friends and we were being chased by these bad guys. After loosing them, we ended up in this house which looked liked it was somewhat destroyed. There was even a big hole in the house, but we didn't jump into it. There were also some toys from Toy Story (Like Woody and Buzz Lightyear). I also was looking in the sky as well, and for odd reasons, I was seeing some Atoms in the sky (Maybe they were Atomic Health?). That's pretty much about it.
A few nights ago I had a strange dream that's not really Duke related (Unless you count Casinos being Duke related) Where I was at my Job, Working, and there was a Casino that opened up nearby, and oddly it was being run by Kermit the Frog. The rest of the Muppets were there too. Yeah I don't know why.

I had another Duke dream about couple days ago and this one I consider to be cooler than my first one which was that ventilation-water-vegetation-thing for Duke3D. This one was about DNF (oh yeah ) and basically.. I just dreamed of something for the original DNF 2001. This had actually never been seen of nor had I read about anything like this but it did fit the DNF style imo. I can try and describe the best I can and from what I still remember about that dream.
Location obviously was still LV because there were some canyons in the dream. The view was from top of a cliff and there was a big beach style opening in front of the drop and behind that was what looked to be the ocean. Area was completely empty of any kinda houses or trees (probably because of the desert thing..) but there was this one gigantic Octabrain at the edge of a cliff, firmly attached to it and that part I still quite don't understand. Basically at one point in FPS view I was inside the octa and it was somekinda techbase and when you went to it's jaw, you had like a total observer view control room of everything with a comfy controlchair in center of and slightly above the normal floor level. The jaw had some circle shaped glass and bars on it so that you could also see down and not just up.
For some reason the person who's view I was watching, went to pull this I guess self-destruct switch and from that point, I wasn't shown the escape part except for the beginning how the head part (room I was at) started to slowly get towards the edge of the cliff and eventually fall down. Duke was only like in typical Duke fashion something like "man, I gotta get the hell out of here" . Instead of seeing the escape part in more detail, the camera panned out to behind the Octa from an up perspective view. Basically the octa once that switch had done it's thing, started to fall off from the edge of that cliff and them tentacles going with it as the base did. Now I'm seeing the gigantic octa probably 1-2 kilometers away from me at bottom of the cliff somewhat near the ocean and it was slowly moving/sliding on ground (because of the momentum the drop had caused for it) and had left huge dragging marks from it's tentacles to the ground. This is also kinda where the dream ended because Duke was standing there at the cliff edge in a solid stance watching the octa sliding from the crash.

In the dream, I have seen the mod in action on YouTube and it had the following changes: the pistol sprites were replaced by the ones used in the mod Chimera but for some strange reason, only some of the frames were replaced, so the pistol was changing during reloading between the original sprites and the Chimera sprites. Another interesting stuff was that the mod was meant to have different sprites for Duke but in third person view mode it still showed Duke's sprites but a bit further away than normal and during that time the sprites were glitching into some kind of knight, maybe the main character from Witchaven. Also the mod had interesting features, such as being able to transform into the Death Wyvern from Hexen but with the ability to shrink to tiny size to make it easier to avoid enemy attacks and enter in small spaces.
Sadly, I don't remember much else from the dream.

Other than that, I don't remember much.
