I'm playing the Harmony TC. Can't say I like it. I had nice level design and music, but the gameplay itself is really haphazard. No long range hitscaning forces you to depend on missiles, ammo on medium is barely enough to completle the level, enemies are damage sponges. Some level enemy positions are ridiculous ie: cyberdemon stand in with half the HP that drops 1 hit kill mines that fuck with your aim and cyberdemon tier missiles

play it if you want to look at pretty maps

I'm not gonna be too strict with people planning a little bit, but the general purpose of speedmapping is to see what you can make within the set time limit, including the layout.

Well, I didn't explicitly state that you couldn't pre-plan your map in the rules post, so it's not like it matters too much anyway. You can go ahead and use the layout if you really want to, it was just a suggestion.

I'm noticing that recent gameplay mods involve a store of some sort or a way to acquire upgrades and stuff through an interface.

Is there a problem if I would like to incorporate such concept in my TC?

>> No.4178239

not really

in-game stores aren't a concept unique to gameplay mods

>> No.4178240

>Is there a problem if I would like to incorporate such concept in my TC?
I wouldn't like it, personally. Stores, imo, should generally be for consumable goods. Very few games pull off a permanent upgrade store well.

But that's just a personal thing for me. Otherwise, go nuts. Maybe everyone else would love it.

>> No.4178251

From what I've played of Psychic, Guncaster, etc it seems to interfere with monster mods when it comes to dropping currency, and so a patch would be required. If you're using your own monsters balanced for your mod, it shouldn't be a big deal.

>> No.4178270

I was not aware of that. Alrighty.

What are your standards for a good upgrade store? I'll sell them, but the store is mainly used to buy materials and tools for crafting.

Not to worry, the currency is dispensed using a special puff used in all weapons. If it hits a monster, coins are released. Meaning, you can buy more stuff in slaughter wads than regular megawads. I'm also working on a special script to detect the target's health and release a bonus accordingly on its death so Colorful Hell is very well compatible.

>> No.4178289

>What are your standards for a good upgrade store?
System Shock and Deus Ex are the only series that have done it well.

Work it into the story, It can't be tedious or take time, and don't make it an always-accessible thing. Force the player to live with their decisions for a while at least. Work them into the environment.

>> No.4178290

>It can't be tedious or take time
I should expand on this. Just don't make it so choosing an upgrade requires grinding, or somesuch.

This was a terrible idea and I'm glad I did it. Some of the enemies, rooms, and textures actually look kinda good. E2M2's crate room is pretty a e s t h e t i c looking. For a half-assed job with no prior experience with this, this was fun to fuck around with.

We should have some kind of titlescreen and intermission screen for 300 Minutes of /vr/, I think.

Pic related was the last one, it featured in monochrome gray as the interpic, and was also replicated for the EndDoom screen.

Scrapped contest back in the day. Also man, looking at that image and other map images on Google reminded me of how difficult it is going back to playing Wolf3D just because of the level design. Getting through all six episodes must be a real chore with how much of a labyrinth simulator that game is, plus the lacking enemy and weapon variety doesn't help.

>> No.4178469

First three episodes are pretty alright, they're about as long as they need to be and are generally not too obtuse or drawn out if you keep playing it bite-sized, like one or two levels a day or so, but the second three episodes are quite a chore I feel.

I haven't played Spear Of Destiny in forever, but it's not as bad as the Nocturnal Missions (Ep 4 to 6). The Formgen expansions to Spear Of Destiny are pretty bad though.

And completed
Also I feel like it isn't completable
I had to use idclip to get some secrets because like 3-4 moving blocks also block paths for some reason
Although maybe it's just bugged in this version, I dunno

It is a bit of a chore, but...
The "port" (it's actually GZDoom) makes it more playable, with full controls, a map and running.
I also use "ketchup" mod, so atleast I have tons of blood flying around when shooting enemies. Actually can be quite satisfying sometimes.
I also play on hardest difficulty. With saving really often. So I'm not completely overpowered. I still mow enemies quickly, but if I approach a room wrongly I also die really fast. So the gameplay is not as monotone

I just figured the various modes of mobility would be difficult to implement or utilize.

Very similar. There are differences of course, since you essentially "carve" the world geometry out of blocks. This is different from Doom where you define sectors and then edit the individual sector floor and ceiling height to create a playable space.

As for starting points:

Quake is pretty easy: get trenchbroom, follow the getting started mapping link in >>4178890. make sure you follow it very carefully when it comes to compiling. Dont have spaces in your map filenames either. Make sure to do some test compiles as you go to make sure your map is working.

Speaking of delicious, I had the idea that dead marines you find could have the small chance of dropping a ration box (acting essentially as just a health bonus, from 1 to maybe 8 points, depending on type and if it was unopened or half of it was gone). The difference being that you don't pick them up automatically like a health bonus and they don't count towards item percentage. The only reason I want to put them in is basically just for flavor and immersion.

This is what I came up for a graphic for it, I'm not sure I'm satisfied with it, but if you look at the rations of modern western militaries, they're really pretty much just a box in a plastic bag and the box has stuff in it. I wanted the plastic to look crinkled on the opened one but it looks more like cracked stone or something, not sure what I'd do better.
The graphic would be scaled down some ingame, because they're supposed to be small supplemental rations and I don't want them cluttering things visually too much.

another decent effort, has the feel of a fling-down-linedefs-come-what-may map of the mid nineties while also being smothered in detail only a limit removing source port could handle. this time the chaotic architecture didn't get in the way so much while i was trying to fight monsters, so that is a definite improvement. also nice to see some light level variation within the same room.

suggest trying to plan layout a little in advance to avoid disjoint room-at-a-time feel. also you could have gone straight from the two-key door to the boss fight, the climbing-of-the-tower part was not particularly interesting.

the second secret (which i miss in the demo, but looked up afterwards) seems broken, i see how to lower the platform but this reveals a green torch inside a small plinth that appears to be a teleporter, but as the torch is solid i am unable to walk onto it. i suspect this works "properly" only in zdoom or other ports with over/under.

This needs to be the sub-title.

ah, wonderful. The last time I tried a layout was with the "gore processing facility" map. I should consider doing such again on a map that doesn't get canned due to the second party bailing.

I was sort of wondering about that. I'll probably replace the torch with a candle or something.

Climbing the tower was probably to give more of an actual "tower" to the map. I'll see what I can come up with to make it more intresting and/or rework it.

If you can pop open the map, and highlight some key areas with any potential legend (ae: highlight in color of severity), that too would be very essential.

I'll update the WAD and download link. Quite a few visual changes and tweaks, consider giving it another quick run and giving a comparison notes.

Where are you getting that from? The two aren't directly related, plus just doubling values would be nuts- the Shambler's lightning zap does 30 damage in Quake which would become 60, and its melee swipes can do upwards of 100 in Quake (enough to one-shot an unarmoed player or even a player with less than max health but a fair amount of green/yellow armor)- doubling that means getting hit by a Shambler's two-arm swipe has a chance of doing 200+ damage, and Doom's megaarmor only absorbs 50% of incoming damage.

From the great equalizer between most FPS games... the rocket launcher (specifically, a direct hit).

Because of the nature of explosives, a little dab will do you, and it takes a whole lot of difference to change the effective size of the blast area (physics here, it takes 8 Times the explosive power just to double the radius). Pic related is the reason I know this.

> Generally speaking rockets between all FPS games are about equal.

The quake rocket does 120 damage.
The quake 2 rocket does 110(avg) damage.
The doom rocket does 218(avg) damage.
The UT2k4 rocket does 90 damage.

This absolutely sets the scale between these games.

And in doom's case compound this with the fact that quake2's bullets are intermediate rifle rounds that wont fit in a pistol. And those nail flechettes from quake1 are nasty.

> and as far as ut2k4, the assault rifle also does 7 damage per hit, which matches up with the 8 damage that bullets do in quake2, with a rocket that also does a tiny bit more damage.

The damage scale isnt exactly 2x between doom and quake1 but its close to it.

Compound this also with the shotguns from quake1 only causing 24 damage per shell, even doubled they're still not reaching the 70 that doom's shells cause (however we can assume because of the high fire rate, lower recoil, and lower number of pellets, the quake1 shells must be 20 gauge or smaller)

This all adds up to the final result that the hit point scale for everything in quake1 is roughly 1/2 that of doom, and people have been getting it wrong for years.

It fires twice a second, leading to double the DPS of Doom's pistol. if you double that with your scaling it's even stronger than Doom's shotgun. Quake's double barreled shotgun has a DPS of 70, just a slight bit more than Doom's shotgun. if you double that it's way over the Super Shotgun, which has a DPS of 122.8.

overall damage values for those other things in doom should average out to roughly:

14 damage - bullets from q2 and ut2004
12 damage - nails from quake1
50 damage - per cell of lightning from quake1
6x7 damage (42) - quake1 shotgun (20 gauge, low brass), this would fit for having to still double tap most enemies to kill them. Quake1's zombies were tougher than doom's though.
98 damage - quake1 double barrel (I forget how many pellets it spits out but I remember the damage was 54).
12x7 damage (84) - quake2 shotgun (12 gauge magnum), the SSG is q2==doom.
28 damage (6 dice) - quake2 hyperblaster in doom.
thats not a factor, its literally a 3 shot rocket launcher, just because it has 3 barrels doesnt mean its 1/3 as strong (as a self propelled munition this doesnt necessarily add much recoil). You're only able to carry 36 rockets too, but I chalk that up to inventory space rather than weight.

I wasnt going back to UT99 though, I never figured out how much those do, but they also seemed much more advanced too, so they may have had a more advanced explosive in them to pack it into a smaller rocket. The blast radius was about the same though.

its technically a teleport trap much like doom's... I guess it could be replicated by an invisible critter that tries to missile you, then loses flying as a result, and as soon as it hits the ground it spawns a shambler and goes away.

however bigger rockets, like the anti-tank kind in Halo or an RPG7 from a cod game are another issue... not designed to be lightweight and fired one after the other like grenades, they sacrifice ammo count for effectiveness.

> if master chief even gets close to the explosion he's screwed, and it affects a sizeable area. Even in the later games they never did nerf the firepower of rockets.

> the fuel rod cannon from halo is abit more like the kind of rockets we have in other games, except they droop at a distance

I would gauge a full blooded anti-tank rocket somewhere up around 400 damage in doom. Maybe more if its something huge like a Tow missile.

But these also lose fragmentation in exchange for a shaped charge so their direct hit damage might be like 600 (I can see this taking out an HK or arachnotron in one shot). While the splash damage might be something like 256.

A Tow missile has about 4 pounds of explosive in it. Snd since in these fps games you can usually carry quite a few rockets my assertion is they're probably in about the same size range as a hand grenade each (1/2 pound of explosive. Bigger than a gun-grenade like 40mm, but smaller than a bazooka round).

>> No.4179773

>the Shamblers teleported around at random like assholes.
Nope. They run pretty damn fast, a tad slower than a Death Knight IIRC, but they don't teleport around. Only enemies I can think of offhand that teleport are the Hexen wizards included in Arcane Dimensions.

Quake 1 shotgun does 24 damage if all pellets hit, 6 pellets times 4 damage each. The double barrel does 56 damage, the same 4 damage per pellet as the single barrel times 14 pellets. So the double barrel does slightly more damage than two single barrel shots, but nowhere near the egregious damage increase of Doom's SSG compared to its normal shotgun.

Indeed my math is off regarding quake's nails, I was thinking they did 7 (its the normal nailgun vs. the shambler that does this, which is why you want to use the SNG on him).

The ratio between quake-doom is basically 1.8 if we're considering their rockets are equal to each other. So they should be doing 16 in doom.

And yes the super-combination damage from the quake1 double barrel isnt the same juicy bonus (2.25) that the doom one (2.85) has. Still the quake 2 ssg (2.5) was pretty meaty all by itself.

But then again many people have said the doom SSG is actually OP so basically kinda sorta iD made a mistake when they made it spit out 20 pellets, and only should have made it spew 14 (and even then maybe only do 180 total... add +2 damage after each 5*1d3 calculation is finished)

And for some reason quake's rockets don't cause a dose of extra damage on a direct hit like doom's.

You're not seeing what ive been saying here.

Yes (IN) quake the rocket does 120. But im saying the rockets are == to each other. And in both games you can carry 100 of each.

If its doing that much in quake, and it does alot more in doom, then there is a scaling factor going on if you're going to bring things from one game into another.

Anything from Doom that you transferred to quake would be much weaker *when presented in that setting*

Pistol and chaingun rounds would do like 6 points each.
Doom rockets would cause 120 in quake, just like quake's rockets.
The plasma gun would only cause 12 per hit (but id make it shoot two shots per cell used).
Doom's shotgun would do 42 damage in quake (while the ssg would do a whopping 120). But it shoots alot slower than quake's.

>> No.4179840

>But im saying the rockets are == to each other.

You're not understanding how weapon balance works. doom's pistol brought into quake would do similar damage to quake's shotgun as they are starting weapons and the amount of damage they do to enemies feels similar. Doom's shotgun would do about the damage of the Quake double barrel as it's the next one up, and has the same "amount of times I need to shoot something" feel, etc.

here's another one

>> No.4179871

blast radius of effect is virtually identical, if you read up a few posts I explained why (the thermonuclear explosion).

explosions scale in size by cube root expansion, it takes a hell of alot, or huge drop in explosive filler, to achieve any reasonable difference in the perceived size of an explosion

in both games they will start hurting you within about ~15 feet of the blast (if 8 map units = 1 foot as ive been told)

also you can carry roughly the same number of rockets, and like I said there's a few other equivalencies that lend further proof that there is inherently a damage scaling difference between doom - and everything else

(doom shotguns cause so much damage comparitivel - the bullet ammunition can be chambered in a pistol which means its inherently weaker than the bullets used in other games)

on the contrary im a master of game design and game balance

fact is the beretta doomguy uses is pretty much junk, but his chaingun would be sorta okay (52dps in quake wouldnt be bad if each bullet was doing 6). It could be a nailgun replacement with more ammo pickup and capacity...

You have to consider that doomguy would probably start with a shotgun in quake too. In fact the weapon slots would probably be different, and remember he gets both a plasma gun and a bfg too, so he has 2 weapons using cells.

> mfw the equivalent to a super nailgun for him would be the quake 2 chaingun, which would be named a minigun instead, and chambered in the same ammo as his chaingun

>> No.4179872

>im saying the rockets are == to each other.
They aren't, though. Quake's rockets are meant to be used fast and used often, hence why one of the most common enemies (Ogres) drop rocket ammo on death.

The flaw in your logic here is you're rebalancing everything based on weapon damage similarity instead of looking at the game as a whole. Quake's RL could just as easily be a plasma ball launcher or something and it wouldn't make a spit of difference, it's still a projectile weapon that fires in a straight line and does 100 + (1 to 20) damage on a direct hit, and it would throw your entire calculation off because that would leave no rocket launcher in Quake to compare things to. Ignore all the models and sound effects, and concentrate on how to make shit balanced. THEN figure out what weapon takes what appearance.

we can also consider the effectiveness of weapons against creatures, like our fluffy shambler for example

also shotguns are such a... common thing with understood capabilities that you very well can take into account that they are shotguns (sorry but you're not going to think outside the box on this one) because part of why they're effective is they cause multiple bleeding holes... and part of why they are ineffective against big monsters is because of a lack of meat penetration

now, damage can vary between shotguns based on caliber, that much is understood, but even if the buckshot is smaller there still isn't a whole world of difference between them (even a .410 can chuck 3-5 pellets of 00 buckshot out).

This conversation started with Shamblers being brought into Doom and being balanced around Quake and Doom's RLs being equivalent to each other.
But they aren't. Doom's RL is a powerhouse with rare ammo, Quake's RL is a mid-tier weapon thats ammo is dropped everywhere. Doom's RL is second only to the BFG itself, while Quake's RL is beaten by the SNG and Thunderbolt. Quake's BFG equivalent is the Quad Damage.
So when you make the Shambler in Doom balanced around the RLs being equal, it ends up being stupidly beefy against everything that's not the BFG.

> believing that things from one game universe are fine balanced where they are, but taking them into another game universe inherently means they must change to accomodate the balance

No, you keep everything performing just the way it does against the things from the setting its from.

Some things are INHERENTLY pieces of junk that make do in one place, but just wont cut it somewhere else.

When I said I was good at game design/balance im meaning that you can keep things performing just the same way... but instead of this breaking balance, what you do is you bring the better shit from one game into another. You bring more of it too, in order to make up for the difference.

Doomguy's beretta wont cut it in quake, so he wouldnt bring that. Shotgun shells are more plentiful, so he starts with a shotgun.

Doomguy's equivalent to the nailgun is the chaingun. It uses bullets, so the nail pickups are replaced by bullet pickups. And make him carry 300 to make up for his bullets only causing 6 points (his max carried damage is now equal with the nailguns).

His SNG equivalent will have to be an upgraded chaingun... maybe the one from Q2. If it fires about 3 times faster then the dps is also equalling the SNG too.

He doesn't get a grenade launcher, it goes right up to rocket launcher. But his rockets will do 120 and he will find more of them so nothing much changes about this in terms of balance.

> notice that im messing around with ammo frequency and pickup availability, and now im going to mess with ammo consumption - im focusing on issues having nothing to do with the weapons themselves really, except adding the Q2 chaingun, im messing with the SETTING.

Doomguy gets a plasma gun (instead of thunderbolt) and if he already has one then a BFG will spawn in its place for the next energy weapon pickup.

The plasma fun fires 10 per second (as fast as quake engine will allow due to tics), causes 14 per hit, and fires obligatory 2 shot bursts for 1 cell consumption.

That would absolutely change things in terms of balance, namely making the game easier. There's a reason 90% of custom Quake maps give the player the grenade launcher and NOT the rocket launcher- people realized long ago that once you've got the RL, as long as you have enough distance between yourself and the enemy there isn't much reason to use anything else. Plus Quake already throws rocket ammo at you left and right, giving the player even MORE rockets is further narrowing their weapon choice.

>> No.4179964

these things are serious business, I can see a one reason for people not making them much, they're light so they have a much higher muzzle velocity, and the way the tip is pointed turns them into supercavitators (it shovels flesh out of the way just like the snow plow on the front of a train, literally blowing a hole through somebody - the wound channel is like a bullet twice the size). It also pierces woven body armor too because of the sharper point, which is why they're also armor piercing rounds.

> that cause a bunch of tissue damage and are more effective than hollowpoints at the same time

Only problem ive heard with these is that, while they're very stable in flight, not only are they lightweight (which is bad for a bullet) they encounter a heck of alot more air resistance and drag and have a limited range because of it.

That may be possibly the only reason that they arent used by the military. And the police wont use them because they dont want to get shot by their own gun. However in realistic terms they're technically superior to armor piercing rounds because of the terminal effect.

> with the 5.56mm EPR rounds id beg to differ that those are more effective now though, because they separate into 2 pieces internally. Technology does catch up.


Then make the ammo more rare. Ogres drop it but that doesn't mean all those boxes of rockets necessarily have to be out there.

Also consider that doomguy's SSG can destroy zombies natively just like the triple barrel from arcane dimensions. He literally doesn't need access to as many rockets.

> Ogres dont have to drop rockets every time they die, it can be a percent drop chance with a counter checking how many failed drops and forcing a drop when it reaches a certain number.

>> No.4179981

Actually when i play quake I find the grenade launcher to be more effective than the RL because I can make indirect fire trick shots. An RL sure does give me alot of reach, if there are a bunch of dudes running back and forth on a platform. But im going to have to waste alot of rockets in order to catch them with enough.

The only reason honestly I start using the RL when I get it is because of damage economy - 120 vs 100 stretches the ammo out farther. Ill also use it for quad just because it blows up immediately.

In quake 2 (GL is practically identical) one of my fave tactics is destroying people when they chase me down a hall. Because they run into a bunch of bouncing grenades, some of which I fire right at a wall im facing (at corner junction) and they bounce backwards down the hall towards the guy.

In both games the RL is actually pretty lackluster to me, the rockets dont go nearly fast enough in Q2, and in the tighter spaces of Q1 I dont usually want an explosion going off unless ive got a corner to duck behind. Which makes the GL alot more effective for my purposes.

And yeah I know its much easier to RJ with a rocket than a grenade, but thats for getting to secret crap.

> its funny to note how only one person I think has been able to see the logic in this while everyone else just keeps sticking to pleb ideas about game theories.

Also I take that back about the BFG not being affected by quad. It would instead reduce the ammo consumption by 75%... as the weapon's capacitors are "fueled" by the quad energy thus draining the cells at 1/4 the rate.

>> No.4180285

I've been doing this recently too. Seems to work.

One thing I noticed is that if a spike shooter hits a button, and the button triggers a relay with a message - the player will never get the message.

Its because quake will only send the message to the thing that triggers the button/relay. If the thing triggering it is a spikeshooter - I guess the world gets the message, not the player.

So now I just link the messages directly to the buttons the player will press

You're correct- the spike shooter is activating the button, so the button sees the shooter as its 'enemy' and sends the message to the trap which obviously can't do anything with it. There's a way around that; instead of having the spikeshooter hit a button, replace the button with a brush entity (i.e. just change the classname) with a classname of "InitTrigger." Then delete all the other fields and add the following so it looks something like this:

"classname" "InitTrigger" //the capital letters are important!
"touch" "multi_trigger" //again, case-sensitive; this bit makes the entity act like a trigger_multiple when any non-worldspawn entity makes contact with it. spike shooters will trigger it once; if a player touches it it'll keep refiring as long as they're touching it and func_walls or doors will also trigger it so be careful
"wait" "x" //how long before the trigger can be activated again; useful if the player can activate the spike shooter repeatedly
"message" "y" //this is where your message goes, obviously
"enemy" "1" //here's where the magic happens: in singleplayer, the player is always edict 1. by setting the player as the entity's enemy ahead of time, the message gets sent to the player instead of the trapshooter!

I used a bunch of spike shooters and InitTriggers in webm related: https://webmshare.com/play/aoGZv and after a bit of tweaking it worked out fine. Very entity-intensive, though, I've got fucking 30 separate entities just for the message bits, but it'll be way less assuming you're just making a single logic gate with a message and not three separate triggers for one of five pseudo-random messages.

I did some messages for a corpse recently and used a bunch of relay counters and relay messages. It just cycles through like 10 messages though and then does nothing.

>How did you do the pseudo randomness? or does it just shoot a bunch of spikes at a bunch of IntTriggers and only 1 message gets printed?
That's exactly what I did. Each row has five spikeshooters that are shot at once. There's a func_train that constantly slides back and forth in front of the stacks of triggers with a vertical slot missing so exactly one spike shooter can shoot through it and hit a trigger at once. This screenshot doesn't show it very well at all as both the shooters and triggers are invisible in-game; you can see the layout in >>4180305.

Like I said, very entity count heavy, but it was just a proof of concept anyway.

>> No.4180337

It's not useless, it just requires you to do something besides hold leftmouse now. Instead you want to pull back while sawing to decrease the likelihood you'll be in range of an attack. For spectres you'll want to use the fist instead, since they port away when hurt usually. With the berserk pack the fists leech small amounts of health and do randompick(120, 120, 160, 160, 200, 300) damage, and the chainsaw also gets a buff with the berserk pack, though no life leech. Default fist damage is now 4 * random(1, 10), up from 2 * random(1, 10), making it at least useful even without berserk.

However, if you're using melee without berserk you are either conserving ammo, out of ammo, or doing it very wrong.

>> No.4180345

backpedaling and chainsawing just feels weird though, seeing as the weapon naturally pulls the player inwards.

>> No.4180346

It's easy peasy if you use mods- Quoth has a built-in randomizer function, IIRC- but that means the player has to download something more than just the .bsp file (and .lit if you use colored lighting), and that's no fun. There's hordes of knowledge on the Tome of Preach site and on func_msgboard for this type of thing, just gotta search for it (primarily the 'Teaching old Progs.DAT new tricks' thread) or ask if there's a way to do X thing because you already tried Y and Z and got no results.

Hell, I'm pretty sure there's an easier, simpler way to make a multiple-choice random trigger selector, but when all else fails spike shooter relays are simple to make and simple to understand.

>> No.4180348

The inward pull lets you stay attached while you pull away to maintain distance, it's basically a timing game. Though once you get berserk and are sawing for 4x damage you don't really have to do it as much. I'd really advise just not meleeing pinkies if you can avoid it, using the regular shotgun to weaken two then killing them both in one shot will usually cause any large group to partially disperse so you can reposition easier.

Nice, that seems like a good way to do it.

I'll definitely use the IntTriggers to actually have messages from logic gates. That means for my corpse message, although logic isn't needed (I do use it elsewhere in this map though), I can go to a spikeshooter for the last message, which should repeat indefinitely ("Nothing more to see here...").

>Its quite interesting the limitations of vanilla quake. No ACS scripting so you gotta get creative provided you dont want to tinker with the source code...
It seems off the wall until you realize how much hackiness was used by Romero, McGee, Petersen and Willits in making the vanilla maps. i.e. by the time Quake rolled around, id still didn't have a way to directly teleport monsters into the map or to create them mid-playthrough, so all monsters that teleport in are stored in a box outside the map, Doom-style, and just have trigger_teleports covering them activated when they need to be thrown into the map itself.

He's more like a halfway between a Baron and an Arch-Vile in terms of gameplay and some encounters (in both iwad and pwad levels) would be absolutely unreasonable if you put Shamblers in place of Barons.
You'd be in for a really rough and unlubed double penetration in E1M8 if what you faced was a pair of Shamblers in that star shaped chamber, short of having a Super Nailgun and Quad Damage with you.

>I'll probably replace the torch with a candle or something.

i see you have done this - thanks, the secret is now accessible. may i suggest though, making lines around the teleporter impassible to monsters, so you don't have to chase them down if you want 100%? it might also be nice to not have to run up the whole tower again after teleporting down. although it turns out the inner walls angle happens to favour wallrunning.

>Climbing the tower was probably to give more of an actual "tower" to the map. I'll see what I can come up with to make it more intresting and/or rework it.

it looks a lot more interesting now with the extra detailing, and there are things to shoot on the way. a shame that two of them are barons, whose high health means the ascent cannot be as pacy as one might like. i guess this is where doom1's (lack of) monster variety is detrimental.

>If you can pop open the map, and highlight some key areas with any potential legend (ae: highlight in color of severity), that too would be very essential.

not sure what you mean. i just do playtest recordings :)

>I'll update the WAD and download link. Quite a few visual changes and tweaks, consider giving it another quick run and giving a comparison notes.

at the tower top, actual live barons attacking from behind dead baron decoration textures was an inventive if rather counterintuitive idea, and quite dangerous. on the other hand i think having both a bfg and an invulnerability makes the single cyberdemon an easy kill.

earlier in the map, it seems monsters around the red key are just kind of there. they wake up and wander out of the room, leaving the player to go in later, get the key (which looks like setup for an ambush) and wonder why nothing happened, anticlimatically. although perhaps you didn't want both sides to be an ambush.

i don't see why so many lines around the blue key need the lower floor action. it causes an excessive amount of loud clunking.

Can you imagine all the fucking bloat, putting all that extra effort into making sure this doesn't turn into a dumpsterfire, just to satisfy some cheap faggot luddite fuck who wants the world to hold back for his sake.

Doom 4 would NOT be an optimized and smooth running game if their goal was the same as yours, it would be a total mess that would completely break down at every turn, making a patch would be like playing Jenga.

You are an insane person.

Alright, here's my submission for the 300 minutes of /vr/ compilation.

>> No.4180920

I guess thats one reason I dont have much problem playing retro games, and if we had some kinda advanced tech vr stuff to make everything look exactly like real life... it would have almost no effect

im real practical, I focus on "whats going on" in a game rather than necessarily the way it looks, though some ultra retro games do get painful to look at sometimes (doom and xcom/ufo level graphics are kinda a minimum for me). I have a good suspension of disbelief.

> and the way it looks is abit more to do with the style its drawn in, rather than what effects are used

for example the translucency and dynamic lights applied to vanilla doom sprites in zdoom are unwelcome - as they stand those sprites were drawn for the way they were originally presented. Having the options available for modding is a great thing but...

Applying other effects to them without altering them in other ways to compensate for it can really screw with them.

> mancubus fireballs should not be drawn with any kind of translucency... baron fireballs, plasma and bfg are okay for additive as long as alpha is 1.0

Wait a minute why cant we drive the alpha above 1.0?

Why cant I apply an "overlay" to a fireball sprite so that I stack up its alpha layering to make it look uber bright in the center but let the outer areas fade as usual... Kinda like the BFG projectile from quake 3...

Anyways... to give another example of my critique the Revenant from doom2 looks fantastic in the context of a sprite game. But the Revenant from doom3 looked like shit because it didnt actually look all gritty and dirty like an undead skeleton.

The revenant in doom4 would look okay if it wasn't for that awful combat harness its wearing. It makes it look like a product of military engineering rather than something that demons jury-rigged and fastened onto the creature.

Also the D4 Revenant looks better than D3 one... but the D3 one could have been made to look just like it even back in 2004.

Actually I don't think we're quite so much of a minority as generally led to believe. However all the others just think they are so they don't say anything.

A big sign of this is that for years there has been an outcry over Gameplay quality in games not just the fact "omg it has great graphics". That there are people out there who will actually say "this game play like shit" or the gameplay is forgettable.

Gameplay is a chief concern of players like myself, coming from the practical standpoint thats a tell that I dont think im quite so alone in my assessment.

At the same time what I mentioned about having Backscaling available, just like they used to have with turning off features or lowering quality - thats damn important because then you can do the same shit that we do with quake/spasm where we've got the option to jack up the amount of shit going on in the game far beyond the

I could give a FUCK less about polycount (except when it comes to curves on gun barrels and bullet casings)

All I care about is texturing. You could make that model at a lower polycount, apply the same texture at a lower resolution, and from a shooting distance it looks the fucking same.

Yeah and I hate that style of shit, especially when the Revenant has been grandfathered in as a different kinda beastie (a skeleton 8 feet tall...).

Also can you collect the rockets its got stored? Does the UAC stock those types of mini-missiles? Are they the same caliber as the ones your own rocket launcher fires?

At least the quake2 stroggs often dropped ammo and cells, because they were shooting your own ammunition back at you from captured soldiers.

It actually doesn't, what about reflective maps, what about bump maps, etc.

Consider also that one of the primary gameplay features of Doom 4 involves you getting really close to monsters to brutally murder them with your bare hands, the low polycount will ABSOLUTELY be noticeable here, they give you VERY close looks of the monsters.

And to add to that, the reason you couldn't collect the rockets the revenants dropped in doom2 was because they weren't anything like the rockets you had, they were some kind of explosive cannonball thing that was guided by hellish energies and was on fire.

I live without money. I don't even have a bank account. Thus I cant buy anything on ebay, or pay for anything online. I tend to get everything I need by other means, getting/given the things themselves without having to purchase them personally.
> why dont you

> think before asking if you dont wanna hear it

Also I wouldnt pay $30 for this game at all, so why would I pay 30 for a thumbdrive to stick it on.

From the previews ive seen of D4 they didnt take the game in the direction I wanted it to, just like they didnt for D3... and I am not impressed with either one. Like 2/5 stars level disappointment. And that part at least has nothing to do with spec requirements either.

Half Life 2 stands higher than D3 or D4 in my opinion, and even it has problems I didnt like.

reflective maps, bump maps...
bake them onto the texture...

assess what kind of conditions the model would normally be encountered on and bake a sample of its shader shit onto its texture

I think they did this sorta thing back in the PS2 days and made some pretty outstanding looking stuff back then, to the point that the only problem you'd notice is the lower screen resolution or using sprite-standins for trees and stuff outside the level boundaries.

>also why is this mofo reflective, I see no Mirror-quality surfaces on his metallic bits. This guy has no polished chrome shit like the terminator, so he doesnt deserve having reflectivity.

>Ranger is actually much tougher than Doomguy
obviously the way you wrote this was intended to provoke, but looking past that (indeed i have no idea how he compares to ranger), but there is a grain of truth in the claim that doomguy isn't as tough as the game backstory would have you believe.

doomguy can't take many hits before he's forced to scurry away for health; 5-6 imp fireballs or as few as 1-2 revenant missiles can leave him dangerously close to death. in fact his main strengths are not toughness, but high speed and agility; dancing around slow lumbering monsters, dodging their attacks, and tricking them into killing each other.

as the player, you are much faster, and can attack more strongly than nearly all of your opponents, whose strength is mostly in numbers or creatively evil placement by the map designer. the player is better off avoiding damage entirely than tanking it, while obviously causing as much damage as possible to his opponents.

in short, doomguy is definitely more of a glass cannon than a tank. (i have no idea how this compares to ranger in this regard.)

I know these old tricks.
> jees do I have to hold your hand for you?
> i swear you're all babbys

Thankfully this can be automated now, the graphic artists don't even have to do this manually.

Make a test scene for the model to appear in under the given conditions that it would likely show up under.
1) Take a snapshot of the texture for the model with all of these effects applied, save this as a temporary file.
2) If the user has dictated they want to use even lower quality settings, resize the temporary texture file.
3) The model only uses this texture, and turns off or is unaffected by all the effects except light sourcing.
- While it doesn't respond or update quite so actively to the surrounding environment, the fact is all those effects being present enhances the texturing it was given by the artists in the same way that baking light sourcing on textures back in the 3d days before realtime light sourcing was used.
4) You could even do this in a limited update fashion so that its not even doing it with just a test scene, it could be actively updating to the environment like once every 30 frames or some shit like that, so when you drag the skeleton from one room down the corridor out into some open area the appearance does change to suit it.

Point of fact this is how you could make a 3d game look like a 2d tile based game - rather than using 3d models actively rendered you would have the game process all of the 3d assets used, make somewhat high resolution sprite frames from all of them - and then apply whatever filters that would make them have the appropriate look... save all of that in a heap temp file and then just have the game display those sprites.

Its Nothing for the game to render a single frame of each of something and save it. There will be no performance hits at all, its just like loading a level before play.

Will apply the blocking lines to the candle secret. Will also stick a teleporter in the courtyard so you don't need to climb again.

>it looks a lot more interesting now with the extra detailing, and there are things to shoot on the way. a shame that two of them are barons, whose high health means the ascent cannot be as pacy as one might like. i guess this is where doom1's (lack of) monster variety is detrimental.

Hm, yes. I'll end up removing them. They were originally specters, but those were too thicc to get through, though the barons seem to be a bit clunkier and -sometimes- get through.

>not sure what you mean. i just do playtest recordings :)
Ah, I mean in most cases of concept art, the artist will show off his works to higher-ups, and they'll mark things down with little notes, scrawlings, and other things (ae: "these spikes look nice but should be spread out more and all over the body", "this looks too visually noisy for what you're trying to accomplish, here's something similar at greater effect for about half the effort", "i really like this idea but i dont think it's fitting for X" , as usually concept artists have a hard time picking up on just simplistic words. Something akin to that.

>How many missiles to the face can you take and still live?
you are the funny joke man. ha ha. to answer, obviously very few, but i am just a regular human, not a video game protagonist.

my point was that i believe that on the scale of video game protagonists doomguy is relatively fragile and there are other video game protagonists who are more durable.

one of them might well be ranger, i don't know. i guess the people who would best be able to judge this are those who balanced Samsara.

(of course then there are many who are less durable, those games where a single hit is fatal. but those usually have lives and you can get extra ones.)

>at the tower top, actual live barons attacking from behind dead baron decoration textures was an inventive if rather counterintuitive idea, and quite dangerous. on the other hand i think having both a bfg and an invulnerability makes the single cyberdemon an easy kill.

I'll probably pull the invuln and put the sousfere in it's place or something, though prior playtests found it "okay" for the cramped space in comparison to E2M8Classic.

The barons-in-walls is a bit of a pull-and-ploy/play from Purgatory, another DOOM wad, pictured.

>earlier in the map, it seems monsters around the red key are just kind of there. they wake up and wander out of the room, leaving the player to go in later, get the key (which looks like setup for an ambush) and wonder why nothing happened, anticlimatically. although perhaps you didn't want both sides to be an ambush.

Yeeah, they really shouldn't do such. More monster block lines and a second sound blocker I guess. Not sure of what to fill room with, in ambush terms. At the same time though, having the sides come to you is part of the play.

>i don't see why so many lines around the blue key need the lower floor action. it causes an excessive amount of loud clunking.

Unfortunately, I had no other ideas on how to make the entirety of the raised key pedestal properly receed, what with being the overly large floor button that it is.

This is not the doom general

Hell Quake has been a close second to doom in discussion since day 1.

there's a reason "retro fps" was added to the title. The majority of the general agreed they are interested in discussing more than just doom. If people disagreed they would have changed it back years ago.

New sounds and eyes for Mr. Beret, he'll sound real mean and aggressive.

Mr. Sawyer can now drop down from ledges to pursue you, partially this was because he spawns in the chaingunner slot, meaning there's plenty of times where he spawns somewhere which is completely fucking useless for him, and he's just target practice for you. It's not flawless, because sometimes they're spawned in blocked off cages or windows, but it'll make him a LITTLE bit less crippled.
The other reason is that I wanted him to be more dangerous, he'll pursue you more aggressively this way.

Of course, this can mean that he can potentially fall down from some height, either down in a pit where he's possibly useless again (unless there's a reason to go down there), or he falls from a cliff far up above where you had no idea he was there, and he lands on your head with his chainsaw out of nowhere, but, eh, that's situational enough that I don't think it'd be a huge issue, and also, the latter is metal, so I think I'll let it fly.

something just dawned on me - we keep thinking of hd sprites as being like really high resolution and then complain about them not looking pixelated like we want (ie, horrible)

but think about this... the sprites in games like Duke3d and Rise Of The Triad were a higher native res than the doom ones because comps had a little more power by the time those games came around

usually only about 25-50% larger but still it looked quite abit more detailed somehow

what if they were just 50-75% larger, and not all smoothed out and crap but had noise or grit added on to make them not look like mud...

churned out another palette edit based on "Doom PalPlus" this time since it already had the dark colors handled better (they get sorta desaturated)

however I also hit the Colmap too... and as an added plus (if you consider it as such) I modified the invulnerability palette to make you "see red" constantly (similar to heretic's amber invulnerability).

Some colors still stick out with distinction, stuff related to explosions or plasma shots should still be distinguishable as orange bits.

unless there's any serious issues with this one, Im thinking this will settle as my contribution to the community along with that plasma gun

For what purpose would they serve, though?

All I see on this helmet is a bunch of useless doodads that are only there because they look cool

why are the demons in this game so adorable?

Bind the far off weapons to closer keys. Q1 is easy because there's few enough weapons you don't have to mangle shit up- you can leave axe, shotgun, double barrel and nailgun on 1234 and put SNG, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, and lightning on QERF (assuming you use WASD). Hell, you can even set up aliases so one key always picks the best nailgun you have, or switches to the RL if you have it but the GL if you don't, or etc.

Because they are cartoons, perhaps?

>> No.4182127

my current set up is pretty basic. I only have SNG bound to mouse2 and g/r set for nade and rocket launchers respectively, the rest I can pretty much reach without the least issue

but the demons in doom 4 are cute too.
