Well, i actually DO have sprites for a grenade launcher, but they just don't cut it. I am still thinking about a new weapon or just a A_Explode on any spell for IoS purposes.

That AK-47 looks way darn smooth and glare-y! Looks promising.

Another screenie of my upcoming project:

The HUD was a little revamped, as well as i swapped some weapons inside the mod.

Now that i tested it a bit with Heretic and Hexen (and kinda failed), this is closer to a release than ever.

Tested in QZDoom. It's still far from complete! :)

SWEET BLOCKY NATURE! So this is really happening, yeah? I just can't fathom the limitless possibilities when this mod comes out... However i certainly hope these chunks won't fry your computer. :P

I never thought something like that would even run right, given how many 3D models are in it. Like, that a lot of 3D models. I'd have thought it would run at like 2 FPS.

The main issue I would see is that multiplayer would basically be impossible, given GZ/QZ/ZDoom's current netcode and the lack of Zandro compatibility. But it's still very impressive.

Based on the fact that the surfaces are drawn individually ( as seen by the "locked fov" tool thing ) I wouldn't be surprised if there's exactly zero models used there, just a bunch of flat sprites.

Zandronum multiplayer was in the original plan, but that went out of the window when I switched to ZScript (because I suck at making any collision detection + all math involved around it and GDCC C memory leaks are a pain to deal with).

GZDoom multiplayer is still on the table, however currently some things (i.e: spawning of actors bound to a chunk) are determined by """clientside""" code, which can and will desynchronize badly.
Another issue is that the entire thing relies on very specific set of properties and flags, using which you can spawn actor without causing any desynchronization.

It's a 3D model of a rectangle (because Zandronum). I'll switch to flat sprites if it's faster and resulting look would be same.

Thanks to the jit, it's somewhat playable. The other issue is the sheer amount of blocks. If only it were possible to create models during runtime... that would make things much smoother (a fork, perhaps?) :)
Also loading saved games is a problem, because I end up with duplicate thinkers for some reason :(
