Not possible and traditionally a feature that's been rejected for ZDoom so not really in the cards to be added. Effectively the idea is that all game state should be held within a save game so that doesn't really work with episode unlocks (or would be very awkward).

It may be possible to do a Quake style episode hub map using the Teleport_NewMap action. Have actors which on sight check the player's inventory for a key item and then die to unblock the passage.

I have a question in regards to unlocking episodes from an item or accomplishment in-game.

If I collect an item, or complete a level with specific requirements, is there a way I can unlock a level in the Episode Select menu? This may also imply I can individually select levels in the Episode Select screen.

I have a feeling this is something more appropriate for a wolf4SDL modified engine. I know the LZWolf mapset used a HUB level, and I may have to go that route, and brainstorm a bit more on how I can accomplish this.
