Demon Eclipse: Hell-forged Edition (WIP)

Postby Eriance » Wed Apr 11, 2007 8:30 pm

[NEWS]

It's been months since I've spent any time on my doom-related projects. After some consideration with input from Tarnsman's review of my DE beta, I've decided to cut Episode 1's contents from the project. It's clear that the quality of maps I made in 2008-9 simply won't be on par with my recent works. As a person with a nearly obsessive-compulsive tendency to keep things consistent looking, I will likely be forced to remake the entire episode for the second time with its new texture pack, as well as the 4 new monsters. This will likely only serve as side-tracking for DE, over all. The resources from DE-EP1 (mainly the weapons) will be Uploaded sent to D.E.C.K. as public licensed assets.

Demon Eclipse: Hell-forged Edition, will focus only on the hell aspect of original mod along with the brand new Hell-tech weapons. What was originally Episode 2, will now be episode 1. Episode 3 will be Episode 2, etc. A new third episode 3 will be made. I believe stretching the resources I have made so far into full length game would make pacing the use of the resources better. The new third episode will be made, with probably very limited new resources such as a few textures and a intermission graphic.

The new bestiary is listed below.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Episode 1: Pandemonium Fortress

-Devil
-Bloodfiend/Lurker
-Infernal
-Draugr
-Aracknight
-Corpulent
-Archon of Hell (newest version)

-Hellduke
-Director
-Hellsmith (Boss - newest version)

+(Any non cybernetic demon from original Doom2)

Episode 2: Towers of Acheron

-Nightmare (newest version)
-Hades' Orb
-Watcher
-Overseer
-Overlord (Boss - newest version)
+(Any non-boss monster from previous episode)
+(Any non cybernetic demon from original Doom2)

Episode 3: Black Citadel

-Hellion
-Wicked
-Guru
-Stygian Spawn
-Stygian Matriarch (Boss)
+(Any non-boss monster from previous episode)
+(Any non cybernetic demon from original Doom2)

That is a bug in GZDoom 1.0.22. You'll need to download an unofficial version that has the A_Explode fix included.

Where can get the unofficial version. I checked on the Gzdoom website and didn't find a link to it.

Re: The Demon Eclipse Thread - New weapons up

New Gargoyle Wand:

I got bored last night and i remade the Gargoyle wand from scratch. Didn't want to continue using that chepa Heretic recolor forever.

Hellforge Cannon:

Replaces the mace-weapon, but does more or less the same thing. Againm, didnt want to use Heretic ripoffs forever.

NEWS:

I'm currently finishing the DE-Ep3 weapon CGs and decorating them. I decided to get rid of a some weapons as there were simply too many and some of them did more or less the same things. There will not be 7 weapons (excluding Vorpal Blade) for Demon Eclipse: Episode 3. Each uses it's own ammo, and on the will regenerate ammo on it's "home stage". I'm still trying to figure out what i want a few of them to do.

Unlike other Doom mods, there will be NO pea-shooter/pistol equivilent weappns for EP3. Instead, you will start with the Vorpal Blade and there will be 1 weapon per 6 stage, and the 5 pieces of the Unmaker you will collect in 5 of them to assemble your ultimate weapon. Each weapon will have two modes of fire, i'll figure them all out eventually. The graphics are mostly done, i just need to add some highlights and need to CG 2 more weapons and their pickup and projectiles/attack-graphics.

I'm finishing up the remake of the 10th mape "Hellkeep". Running into a slight mappers block at the moment though. Hopefully it will be finishes sometime this week along with all the Ep3 weapons.

DE-EP3 monsters are taking a long time. Currently finishing up the Chaos-Elemental and the Hellstorm Soul Harvester. I'm almost done editing the Anagorak (of HS) from the heresiarch.

Those do look awesome :).

eliw00d: I seem to recall, but could be mistaken, that DE Episode 4 will be set on Earth/in a human outpost of some kind. So presumably that will make use of more human-built weapons.

I have to say, these are probably the best sprites you've done so far. I can't tell exactly what the Hellforge Cannon is supposed to be, though. Is it some kind of demon vertebrate with a smashed skull?

I agree :P There seems to be a lack of good centered custom (sub)machine guns / rifles for doom...
