Butterfly in doom mod

Postby Vixxie32 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 1:04 pm

So im making my first doom mod. And i want to make a butterfly. Not a monster, just a harmless and unkillable flying around entity. But i really have problem with making monsters or weapons in DECORATE. Im dumb and i really need your help because i want to make this mod but its so hard for me to learn actor etc. things. If you can just paste here a template for a butterfly thing. Also it have only two sprites.I will be very thankfull for help

I don't know what you want it to do if it only has two sprites. I guess if all it does is fly around and follow you, two sprites may suffice, but it won't have sprites for attacking or dying, or anything else. I can't even see the sprites. They are entirely too small.

Its just two sprites with butterfly moving its wings. Its have to by crappy and small that float around like peasants in Strife. I dont have sprites for death yet well im not planning to add killable butterflies that gonna kill player. Maybe i should trying making a particle or something?

Probably needs tweaking to make them a bit more fluttery. It's in DECORATE but ZScript would be better simply because it's newer and more flexible. For something like this, it doesn't really matter. It'll maybe get you started anyway.

Butter.pk3


Type summon butterfly at the console.

But wouldn't a butterfly clash jus' a teensy itty bit with, you know, all the hellspawn demons tryin' to rip you to shreds. Maybe a nice baby cacodemon, instead? Then he spawn little bitty hearts when he's near you.
