Police Brutality (Weasel Presents: Terrorists!): Update!

Postby wildweasel » Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:16 am

Weasel Presents
Image
Get the Newest Version here! (dropbox link) Or a Bleeding-Edge Version here! (github link)
Or get the older version from /idgames
(tested with a not-quite-up-to-date GZDoom dev build - if it crashes with a message that there's an unknown pointer somewhere, try a newer dev build)

It's more than just a reskin of Nazis. Really, apart from the bullet tracers, this is effectively designed from scratch, using borrowed TekWar enemy sprites to give the mod a sort of Lethal Enforcers/Operation Wolf 3 feel. Terrorists! is intended as a tribute to 1980's and 1990's action movies like Commando, Die Hard, Under Siege, Total Recall, and The Terminator. The focus here is on giving you all the tools you need to become your own Man of Action.

The feature set:
  • This is a Hollywood-realism mod - weapons recoil and need to reload, but that's all! No complicated magazine systems, no bandaging, no weapon slot limits.
  • Included weapons are cliché, but each one is made using resources that have not been seen yet in a Doom mod. (Although there is an Uzi, it is not Shadow Warrior's, for example.)
  • "Hostage System" replaces large powerups with civilian hostages that must be "rescued" with the Use key to obtain special items.
  • Off-hand melee button with two modes: Kick and Taser.
  • Aims to be cheesy...but *good* cheesy!

And here's a spoiler fulla screenshots!
Spoiler: Screenshots! Since you don't get anything else yet!

And a spoiler fulla strategy guide stuff!

And yet another spoiler fulla upgrade info!

I decided I'd start this thread up for a couple of reasons. One, so I could show you guys that don't pay attention to IRC or the WIP thread that yes, I am working on something, and two, to start a social experiment about whether my thread would get more attention if it had the word "Brutal" in the title. =P

(To clarify, this mod actually does not have anything to do with Brutal Doom, so please don't try to load this over Brutal Doom; I will not be held responsible for the effects of this.)

Judging from the amount of views in the time-span this has been up, I would assume your experiment is going along rather well.

In all seriousness, I look forward to this one. I hope you release it soon.

Sounds promising, yet I don't think the sprites for the enemies match with the doom textures.

Looks good, but I hope it won't be a mod that comes with too much ammo.

Hey WTF? I saw Brutal in the title and thought this was going to be something to do with Brutal Doom. I wouldn't have come here if I'd known it was just some other mod. :P


Seriously, this looks interesting although I'm not sure how well the photo-captured sprites work against the drawn textures. However, I know the problems that there were tracking down suitable sprites so I guess its a "use what you can get" situation. As such, its perfectly acceptable IMO.

Having mucked around with betas of this, I must say it's great fun. There's a new system in place with the enemies (that I won't spoil yet) that's simple but definitely works to make things more interesting. ;)

Where the hell did those weapon sprites come from? They're top-notch.

Mike12 did the pistol, the Uzi and AK were by Necronixxus, and I sourced the Slugger and grenade launcher from models on Gamebanana.com (full credit is given to the creators of those models in text files inside the mod, and will be included in plaintext when the mod is released). The leather jacket hands are by Midoriman and can be found in the hands thread in Resources.

hey, when you release this, may i have some of the weapons?

and is the reloading going to be cheap like NAZIS!, real reloading sprites, or no reload at all?
