Sounds like a small detail, but in practice this is amazing!

You're the man, Nash.

Should actually be integrated into GZDoom as an option. Amazing and beautiful autoload material! Thanks a lot for making this!

Updated to version 1.4 (sorry Hellser but the changes are quite significant that it warrants a version number increment :P)

Update June 14th 2017 (version 1.4)

- Fixed player shadow build-up in hub-based maps
- Fixed not being able to see other players' shadows
- Fixed shadows not staying firmly on moving lifts

Wow, such a small adjustment really makes a difference! Looks much more crisp and polished now. Thanks for this!

I'm not sure if the thing I did to make shadows always draw behind/under sprites would cause desyncs in mutliplayer, if anyone could playtest netplay with this mod and report back if it works or not, that'd be great.

Last time I checked, ZScript is extremely unstable with netplay. Like, way more unstable than GZDoom's multiplayer normally is.

Kudos on the great work done here, very cool stuff! And cool stuff in this topic discussing the idea of it being a future feature.

Don't know if it should be an option in GZDoom itself, but even apart from the result (which is great!), I really admire this kind of inspiring attempts to enhance the game by adding simple mods.

Very well done!

Great work so far Nash with this shadowy code, ehehe

As we spoke / decided before, I have added such effect already on BoA, which also seems to be way less resource demanding than blob shadows.

My plan is to add also for those actors which aren't recognized as Monsters (the IsMonster check doesn't work over a couple of NPCs actors actually), plus make the effect tweakable for players (on/off from Enh. Options)

THANK YOU!

It's an honor to be included in BoA. :D

You are welcome Nash!
Btw did a lame attempt to make shadows switchable for players: maybe it's not the best way to do it, since I am not used with ZScript, but it works.

How to reproduce 100% consistently (using latest stable GZDoom or QZDoom): Put down the Beef Supreme turret from the latest Russian Overkill, collect the turret to get it back, instant error.

this thing is great but damn, it causes quite a bit of lag in wads with large monster count
