reposting from previous thread

So, I'm finally working on Burl Tumd again. I still don't have any ideas for the BFG, but I'm not really sure if I could out-do its badassery. Anyway, I've got a couple of updates lined up, figured I'd post here for some feedback.

>Archvile fire now does a tiny amount of damage as it burns, preparing you for the main blast. If you take the full duration of the fire and the explosion, it'll kill you from 100 HP.

>Cacodemon lightning balls now blind the player momentarily but only do 5-10 damage. Caco painchance is also reduced, and on death they start deflating like a balloon, flying all over the place while making a silly noise.

>Both Spider Mastermind and Cyberdemon have no painchance and 75% resistance to explosions.

>Finally got around to nerfing plasma rifle's altfire, the explosions now do damage according to the size of their explosions. Also added trails to the primary balls and fixed their animation.

>Brought the chainsaw back, primary "fires" 150% faster than vanilla and uses short-ranged ripping projectiles alongside the melee attack. Altfire gives it a hefty toss, but only if the button is held and then released. The chainsaw can be retrieved once it lands (provided you can reach it, of course) and won't vanish if it hits the sky.

Finally beat this damn stage.

I don't understand why archies appear past the blue door. You don't need to go back there as far as I can tell.

There are so many cacodemons and pain elementals it is obnoxious. Not just hard, but obnoxious. If you removed every cacodemon that appeared on the map, I bet the flow would be a hell of a lot better. There are just too many monsters half the time and it's getting to not be fun anymore; just kind of tedious. Sure it's hard, but it's a grinding, tedious kind of hard.

This is compounded by the fact that every area is cluttered, tiny, and not made for firefighting in. This removes one of doomguy's best strengths (his speed) and also encourages peek around the corner/bars sniping, which is effective, but also boring and.... tedious (there's that word again!) especially when you have to suddenly deal with two... no three... no four... no five... SIX fucking cacodemons. Why not just make a script that removes 60 bullets from my inventory every time I open that door. Jesus.

I think part of the problem is that you aren't able to explore to find fresh ammo and supplies; you're always backtracking into rooms that suddenly have monsters again. This is fine if you're doing well, but if you take a bad hit just once then you might need to use up most of the supplies, which you might need again later (but they aren't there because they've been used), hurting the explore/fight/restock rhythm.

Speaking of supplies, the backpack probably should not be a secret item. Backtracking is not always possible in the map due to monster teleports and having to double back to collect a box of shells or worse yet, wasting a good amount of bullets is awful on a map like this..

The last room is extremely annoying, but once you know the 'trick' you can move in, punch the pain elemental, chaingun the revenents and body block the archvile and suddenly is it not so bad.

Have it be a gigantic full on hitscan laser that arcs about 35-45 degrees that you can fire in a continuous stream pushes you backwards considerably as long as you fire it. Have it stun enemies as it's hitting them, have it buffer damage and anyone who takes 100% more than their total life, explode with a volley of a dozen plasma particles ejecting from them spread in a 180 degree arc in the same direction as the BFG was pointing. If you nail a bunch of little guys with a blast, and they're close enough, it could wipe out bigger guys.

I'm mostly going for Doom weapons with their strengths and weaknesses exaggerated. For instance, the shotgun is extremely accurate while the super shotgun is almost useless at anything other than point-blank range. The chaingun is great for stunlocking enemies while the pistol excels at sniping. The rocket launcher does a ton of damage against large groups of smaller enemies but is less effective against bosses. Your idea is intriguing but I'm not really sure if that would go along with the rest of the mod.

I'm more of a Duke3D guy but I've played quite a few Doom wads anyway.

I just played those two episodes made by the same people:



The first one is good and but the sequel is great.

In any case both feel like classic Doom and that's all I asked for. Apparently they were released in 1994.

If you're looking for classic style maps try Serenity and Eternity too.

However my favourite mapper for Doom is Skillsaw, he's made some of best wads in the recent years like

But some of those aren't the strengths and weaknesses of those weapons.
The shotgun wasn't really accurate, it just spread on a level plane. It excelled at medium-close distance.
The chaingun is the pistol with zero cons and faster fire rate, it does everything the pistol did and then some. Once you get the chaingun, there's no reason to ever touch the pistol again. They do the same damage, the shoot the same way with one exception that the chaingun cycles two shots per press and has a faster fire rate where the pistol shoots one shot per press.
The Rocket Launcher was still very useful against large bosses especially with it's rapid fire. It does slightly less damage than a super shotgun, but you can eject pain 3x quicker. It takes no more than 6 shots to kill everything except for the two largest enemies. And those six shots can be dealt in 10.5 seconds. The only real 'con' is that you can fuck yourself up HUGE if you get hit by it.
The only thing that takes out those two bosses quick is the BFG, which at most needs two shots up close and personal.
It already requires doing a dance and risking your life for the two shots on a cyberdemon. You can take three shots and not take the risk though.

Some artistic liberties were taken.

The shotgun was really accurate due to the lack of vertical spread, though. If you fired at something, regardless of distance, chances were good that you would hit it. It also had quite the risk factor in DM play, which is even further exaggerated here. If you land all the hitscans, you can oneshot enemies, but if you're even just a little bit off, you might only do 10 or 20 damage.

The vanilla chaingun was just a direct upgrade over the pistol, but I didn't want that to be the case here, so I gave its sniping capabilities to the pistol and exaggerated the chaingun's stunlocking tendencies.

The rocket launcher wasn't as good as the plasma rifle or the
BFG for bosses, since they don't take any splash damage, only the 20-160 from the impact.

Violence + action + speed + modability.

You never know what to expect, while getting into Zandronum server - each mod makes the game totally different, to the point that players can love one mod and totally hate other. '

I hope guy who made that "Darkside of the Moon.wad" will read this...
1)Flip linedefs 996, 975 and 979 to fix that sector bleed.
2)You have 1px line that have different texture than neighboring lines (number is #4072), change it to COMPSPAN.
3)I really wonder what you can do with this... try to mess around with lines' facing.
4)What the hell, that shit happens when you look back in start area from that yellow pre-last room.
5)There's some blocky area for no reason plus texture bleed. I think it's all DB's fault that could delete some sectors and stuff.
6)Level stats. Died once because I've cornered myself like a retard. Exited with like 260 cells because I've punched spectres and some cacos with pain elementals 1v1 because I can. Played with v1, though, but still nice level to play.

I finished the Gargoyle monster I was working on yesterday. Dunno if anyone was really interested, but here's a file containing the monster if anyone wants to use it on a map.


Similar to the Imp in overall strength, basically fills the same role in flying form. Has slightly less health than the Imp (50 versus 60). Has a weaker projectile, but throws three of them in rapid succession. Will also rush its target sometimes to quickly get into melee range. (basically the Lost Soul attack, sans direct damage; it'll slightly follow its target, and stop the charge if the target leaves its LOS) Attacks much more rapidly as well. Good for shotgun target practice, or for massing up in large quantities.

Another update for now, and the last!

Zombiemen now have a chance of spawning with armor, which means that normal bullets are less effective, while the shotgun slug is more effective. Also, they drop their armor, giving you 25% resist (as opposed to the 33 or 50% of the other armors).

Shotgunners have more chance of spawning with armor, and a small chance of spawning with...

As an aside to this good discussion, I'd like to suggest that the M1 carbine not be so jam crazy. It can jam, but maybe put some algorithm on it (I have no idea how to mod doom, so ignore this if its not possible) so that if it jams, it won't jam for another X firing attempts.

More in line with the conversation, I don't think camping is that bad of a tactic because the bertholite makes sure it can only happen so often.

In fact, bertholite is a great gameplay mechanic, if you look at it. It doesn't work that great when you have fewer people, because one use of bertholite is only likely to get you maybe one kill, if that. The more people there are to stuff up rooms and corridors, the better the gas gets.

Alrighty! The archvile healing is a lot harder to get down than I thought, so instead, it just doesn't hurt any monsters with hellfire.

However, Hellbarons and Hellknights get Angry when they're hurt! They each have their own effect, and they're both terrifying in brand new ways.

Also, there's a new type of chaingunner out there- the plasma chaingunner, who always drops a small energy cell, and may drop a few goodies!

And finally, the arachnotron fires the plasma rifle's new altfire. Because it can.


Well, guys... This seems like this is it. Everything (save the fists) has an altfire, all of the monsters have been tweaked, some monsters are weaker to bullets, others weaker to plasma/BFGs...

You could run them into a different Revenant and it'll work, but not the Revenant that fired the rocket. By virtue of the way Doom works, projectiles will never come in contact with the monster that spawned it.

Part of the reason why it was a bitch for me to get the Vore's projectiles to blow up on themselves, since it required a goofy work-around for the projectile to simply detect when it was within the radius of the monster that spawned it, then cause an area of explosive damage to simulate the effect.

It's not common that you manage to get a homing projectile to go right through the same revenant that fired it.

In any case, here's video proof of it in GZDoom. It happens in PRBoom+ as well, but I couldn't be assed to record that. You'll just have to take my word for it. Or try it and see for yourself.

Nope. There's a check in the game engine to see if the projectile's owner and the other object are the same. However, in theory, if you saved the game and then loaded it, you could get this effect. Projectile owner and monster target information isn't stored in the save files.

Imps are now even more of assholes. When hurt, they actually retreat, throwing out as many illusions as they can as they do so! They have only a 1 in 32 chance every few ticks to stop being cowards, or a 1 in 8 chance to spawn a new illusion!

we 2hu now

I need an idea for the 9th spell, to round out the currently 3 spells for each class.

Right now this is how it is
Fire: Vile Flame (Small flame that explodes into many additional, seeking flames)
Ice: Magic Missile (Because Baratus is too much of a fucking retard to know any better spells)
Dark: ???
Fire: Fireball (Is delayed, then speeds up immensely. Explodes.)
Ice: Seekers (Think "Cerebral Bore")
Dark: Necromancy (Can only resurrect enemies that leave behind remains, and doesn't work on bosses)
Fire: Fire Trail (Creates a long line of fire that burns enemies for damage over time)
Ice: Ice Wall (Creates 3 destroyable ice pillars that block enemies and fire magic missiles at nearby foes)
Dark: Black Sword (Fires off a slow moving ball that pierces through enemies and also discharges smaller balls that do not pierce, what you see here.)

>> No.578036

Baratus should have defensive/offensive weapon/armor/shield enchants he can cycle. Maybe a spell reflect from a shield? (think Hexercise's shield parry, but for spells).

More of an aura, of sorts? And then yeah, a shitty magic-missile equivalent or something.

Daedolon needs to feel like a master fucking magus, a scary ass magic nigga. Like, absorb enemy projectiles, store and redirect them, force manipulation, mana leech/steal, some shit. Lazer beamz!!!!!

In the future I'd like to make this a general Hexen combat improvement mod, but for now I'd just like to get each class maybe 5 different consumable spells, one for each element.

Alright Doom thread dudes, give it to me straight: Does this look stupid, or is it actually any good?

In my quest to have new monsters that don't look like direct copies of existing Doom monsters, I got the idea to fusion-ha the Hell Warrior and the Cyberbruiser into a new sprite to distance their obvious ties to the Hell Knight/BoH. The result so far is this. I'll be coming up with my own behavior for the monster when the sprites are done, but before I go doing a ton of work I wanna know if this looks good or if it's just laughable.

It depends what feel you are going for, and how the others will look. If you are expecting players to experience anxiety attacks from seeing that mammoth rapist charging at you, look no further.

Will the shield be used to deflect attacks and/or negate damage? If so, fuck fighting it if its supposed to be a Cyberbruiser! That may be a lengthy battle!

But seriously, that thing would be unstoppable. Taking into account the power-level of both fuckers (Cybruiser and Hell Warrior) that thing would tear apart any level from Sunder with the fingernail

>> No.582927

That's out of my capabilities. Most I can do is shove sprites together and swap palettes, and do minor touch-ups on top of that. Crafting entire sprites is beyond my skills.

One for the stupid camp...

The shield is to deflect damage after entering the pain state (will happen about 50% of the time), as well as launch an alternate attack.

He's growing hair because he's uh, a lion-demon. I'd think that he already had the hair when he got turned into a cyborg.

He's not wearing a loincloth? I'd wager it just looks like that 'cause of the sprite. Might need to touch up his nether regions then.

Bear in mind his attack will resemble neither the Cyberbruiser nor the Hell Warrior. He'll launch a much weaker projectile from his launcher that'll cause some splash, but not nearly as much as a rocket launcher. His shield will fire a volley of weaker projectiles that have very light homing capabilities. Overall I'm going for something roughly between a Hell Knight and Revenant in strength, just with some new tricks.

If I can pull it off with decorate code and make a convincing sprite edit, I might also give him a shield-check melee that doesn't do much damage but pushes the player back, and have him follow it up with an immediate projectile attack if he successfully creates distance between himself and the target.

Even so, I still feel it's more Doom-y than the monster I'm currently using in my map, which is basically and edit of a Heretic monster. (Pic related; it's what the new monster would replace) Which I personally like, since it's got a very unique feel compared to Doom monsters... Except for, you know, feeling entirely out of place when standing next to said Doom monsters. At least the monster I'm working on fills in that sort of cyborg monstrosities theme of a chunk of the Doom bestiary.

But even so, as I said earlier, I don't wanna dedicate hours and hours of work to something that folks are just gonna find wierd in the first place. Judging by reactions so far, it seems that's what's gonna happen anyway.

>> No.583021

>> No.583032

Done! You hold it, and it 'pulses' red five times, one time a second. Each pulse doubles your damage again until you're doing a teensy bit more than a berserked fist would. And if you're berserked... you can do up to 650 damage if you're fully charged up.

>> No.583039

And one more for the good camp.

Because of the way the punching damage works, you'll only actually onehit hellknights about a third of the time, since you'll be doing 65 * (random number between 1 and 10) damage when fully charged and berserked. Non-berserked only does 11 * random.

That's what I mean though, I don't think the chaingunner or any chaingun edits really have the right size/angle for the shield, and it's certainly beyond me to get geometry like that to look fitting on the shield in a serious manner.

Not him, I like the imp change (even though it makes melee a pain in the ass), but is it just me, or is the Slug (alt fire, shotgun) totally gutless?

The rest seem anywhere from silly to fun to OP, but none stupidly so, so it's pretty cool. Just the shotgun slug seems... I don't get it. 3 shell cost for way less damage to 1 target than a normal shotgun round would do?

I think a better solution would be something like alt fire chambers a slug, costs +1 shell, and your next shot hits like 115% of 1 center mass shotgun blast, but penetrates physically, and bypasses armor (or 100% bypasses armor, additional 15% to armor, or whatever. I don't know how damage scripting in DECORATE works).

Speaking of - considering a conversation I was having with you and a few others pretty much spawned ProjectILE, I feel somewhat involved... Are you really new to DECORATE? How did you learn how to mod shit that fast? Point me to some websites, 'cuz it's been impressive.
