Actually, you can just load up the monsters resource wad like a texure wad. But you could merge it and the start of a wad together as well.

Like Phobus said, you can!
However, the problem is that Doombuilder doesn´t show decorate entries right now (will propably be fixed in future versions).
They´ll always show up as unknown things, even with the monster.wad loaded.
Another problem is, that the new thing-category "Zdoom monster pack", the monsters are put in through the decorate lump, is also not shown in Doombuilder (for absolutely no reason it seems :?:).
Though you can find some of the new monsters under the thing-category DECORATE.
These enemys miss the respective line in the lmp that tries to put them into the "Zdoom monster pack" category, so they automatically are assigned to DECORATE...

To make a long story short;
either

1. Just place things with the monster number you want into your map and trust Zdoom to load the external monsters properly (though it can get annoying to have to look up the editor numbers in the decorate lump)

or

2. Load up the decorate lump with XWE and delete this line of code from every monster entry:
Code: Select allExpand view
//$Category "Zdoom monster pack"

This will put the monsters automatically into the thing category 'DECORATE', so you can choose them from within DB.

Keep in mind the things will be marked as unknown though :wink:

I made this exact thing already for the Boss, Human, and Monster Resource Packs, I'll link you to it. The only difference between it and the SkullTag one is that some of the monsters are renamed to avoid conflicts with SkullTag ones. It doesn't actually change the ID number though, so everything should be fine. It shows all of the monsters as known ones, and includes their pictures.

Umm...just download the original. The only reason the ST one exists was so the names didn't conflict with anything else.

It's called READING THE POST.

The Hell Warrior, the Lord of Heresy, the Rifle Zombie, the Stealth Fighter, the Fast Imp, the Dark Imp (all three versions), and the Nightmare Cacodemon are my favorites.
