Something I've been working on for a while now. I've been wanting to upload a video since... like a month ago but haven't been able to, so this should do for now :p
I'll try to be brief but that's not my forte so be warned!

Spoiler: yeah I wasn't brief lol

There's so much more already in I wanna show but that'll wait for the video I'm struggling to edit and upload. You can click on the image to get a larger version of it.

And here's the current title screen intro for the game. It's a bit outdated but you still get the idea:

There's also a Discord server link at the bottom of the description, if you're interested!

EDIT: Oops, the game had drop-shadows like SM64 but I broke them after trying to fix some Z-fighting issues. That's for a later post then :lol:

Another quick run, this time through the prison!
It seems to be a bit too easy so far. I'll have to see what I can do about it.
Maybe I can lower Acolytes' reaction time from 1 second to half a second....
The Sentinels need work too, but I don't know what I could do with them.

However, I set myself up for some annoyances later, as after going through the prison and saving for later when I do a test in the power plant, I decided to modify the ACS scripts.
That means that the save I did no longer works, and I'll have to replay up to [imgur][/imgur]the prison again. At least I'll be able to do more testing. :D
Also the electric bolts didn't work when shooting the ceiling, as I forgot to add radius and height properties to the explosion, but that was fixed now.
It also took me about 5 hours to actually upload this video.... Jeez, I'll have to tweak my settings for the next time.


I play some Strife, till the programmer fight. If you upgrading this stuff.

1. you could make your own forum page for your project.

2. there is not enough human monsters variety. This acolyte doesnt look like "acolyte" at all. Its heavy riot combat infantry.
imo there should be +2 human opponents. An guy dress in robe, even in intro there are this hooded guys. and second some light infantry without shield.
Priest - should has some high tech gun, that hit hard, but its easy to avoid or load long. he die from light slap to the face.


Light infantry - just weak filler monster, little tougher than Doom Trooper. Die quick. But could run away from player so this would look like they using some tactics (there is monster flag for this behavior).You could spawn random(1,3) instead 1 shield acolyte.

did you finish your wish list?

some resources light infantry can be taken from doom mods. Or even take rebel soldier replace head, and recolor a little.
Priest not sure, from heretic?

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=50097&p=1152381&hilit=strife#p1152381

I hope you twist the granade launcher because this weapon is an annoyance to use. Still due to highest damage, im kind of forced to use it.

1. Sorry, but I don't want to create a thread for an incomplete mod.
First I want to polish it well enough to be in a playable state, before making a thread about it.
Though, I guess I also shouldn't be taking up space in the WIP thread too.

isnt it better to recieve initial feedback. Get to know people expectation. Change own view on something ASAP? instead of sticking to bad ideas because you invest time and energy in it?

2. While I like the idea of including "light" Acolytes without shields, I don't know about priests, which I will attempt to explain my reasoning below. (Sadly containing spoilers)
Spoiler:

Spoiler talk ended,

I just play strife recently. Honestly Im not impress by combat. most jarring is the lack of enemy types. Something that is a Big Highlight point for all old school shooters. Variety of monsters that doesn make narrative big sens, but are cool to fight with.
What is strong point of strife, that there is some plot and universe. RPGish elements (not ducking stats increase with xp grind!). Money, shops, npc to talk with. From all my play going to shop buying stuff for gold I find, and exploring rebel base was coolest moment. And finding the rat society.
that saying excluding Priest is a shoot to the knee. I could maybe make this pistol attack.

Jarewill wrote: As for the FRIGHTENED "running away" tactic, I considered giving it to the Acolytes, but I ended up not giving them that ability.
My reasoning was because I want to keep them who they are, and I don't think the Programmer programmed them to do that.

ok, but you could have weaker acolytes that have outdate software. And newer shiny version. Gameplay wise - its great that enemies behave differently. Think about Hexen bishop, that is trying strafing away from bullets. Or Nitrogolem that shooting his fire faces - first time I saw this as a kid, i think i turn off the game, because that was too much emotion for me to handle.

Spoiler:

you are right, its confusing
want more of this? I dont wanna work for nothing


--- other ideas
dying peasant, make me thing it would be cool if killed monster required finished off (50% of time), but some healer monster could come and recover them back. Or monster could start running away if they low on HP. Or they could beg to stop the fight - surrender. Or player could get knock down and capture if he gets to 0 hp.

Once again, thank you for the help!
Though, I don't know if it's alright for me to post so much stuff here, as I feel I'm just taking up space for others.
If I am, then I am sorry and I will stop.

This is actually not the first mod I've been working on. I have another mod sitting in my folder that is pretty much complete code-wise.
Once I get the sprites from a friend, I'll be happy to release it, but until then I have to wait.

so what? you would have mod page, that doesnt have download link. There is plenty of WIP mod in gameplay mod section that already do this.
I dont understand your "modest" approach at all. It doesn't cost anything to make a project page. Are we losing "respect" points here or something for each new thread on this forum?
Can some admin here cheer Jarewill to create project page, please? :cheers: or at least confirm there is no punishment for such action.

Jarewill wrote:That is a really great sprite though!
Don't know how you even did this, but it's great!
If anything, I think making them more distinct from the normal Acolytes would make it even better.
Maybe giving them smaller shoulder plates? I mean something like the Rebels, as they has shorter pauldrons than the Acolytes.

I take that for yes. I put this dude on my schedule. Unfortunately Sunday is over, and I have to go to work.
I think i could put face in his helmet, so he would look less "menacing"

I have to say, very nice sprite edit! But i think the helmet kinda needs some edit. He still looks the same with Acolyte but with no shield.

The development is going swimmingly well. As soon as the title animation is finished, we'll start improving the menu first, and then other features, to one by one.​

Impressive work! That rotation is so smooth, are you using models as a base?
