[GZDoom] Hell-Forged - (On hiatus until December - school)

OVERVIEW

Hell-Forged is a total conversion for Doom 2 and the successor, and sort of a sequel, to Demon Eclipse's second episode. Thanks to Tarnsman's feedback from some time ago, he's convinced me to focus on the Hell-tech theme of Demon Eclipse instead of having two essentially different games in a single package. Hell-Forged is currently planned to be a single 9-map episode set in another world being invaded by Hell. I'm just going to keep my focus narrow and finish what I have planned for Hell-Forged's 9 maps and ~dozen new enemies and bosses. This project takes a lot of inspiration Hexen, Quake, Blood and Duke3D, while trying to make it look and play as authentically Doom as possible.

(Note: The resources of this mod are NOT open for public use yet. Wait until the final release. Thanks :) )

GAMPLAY CHANGES

While Hell-Forged aims to preserve Doom's gameplay style as much as possible, somes use of ZDoom's features were implemented.

LORE
Spoiler:


THE ARSENAL

Unlike the arsenal in Doom where later weapons made earlier ones obselete, each weapon in HF is designed for a specific role, and will not become redundant. Furthermore, all weapons except the Templar sword (atm) have an alternate attack.

Spoiler:


BESTIARY

Along with a familiar cast of hellspawn form Doom I & II, Hell-Forged brings a cast of new monsters that come from the deepest pits of hell. Some of them are more powerful variants of old favorites, others straight out of your worst nightmares. Some enemies are limited to a specific episode.

That is a bug in GZDoom 1.0.22. You'll need to download an unofficial version that has the A_Explode fix included.

New Gargoyle Wand:

I got bored last night and i remade the Gargoyle wand from scratch. Didn't want to continue using that chepa Heretic recolor forever.

Hellforge Cannon:

Replaces the mace-weapon, but does more or less the same thing. Againm, didnt want to use Heretic ripoffs forever.

NEWS:

I'm currently finishing the DE-Ep3 weapon CGs and decorating them. I decided to get rid of a some weapons as there were simply too many and some of them did more or less the same things. There will not be 7 weapons (excluding Vorpal Blade) for Demon Eclipse: Episode 3. Each uses it's own ammo, and on the will regenerate ammo on it's "home stage". I'm still trying to figure out what i want a few of them to do.

Unlike other Doom mods, there will be NO pea-shooter/pistol equivilent weappns for EP3. Instead, you will start with the Vorpal Blade and there will be 1 weapon per 6 stage, and the 5 pieces of the Unmaker you will collect in 5 of them to assemble your ultimate weapon. Each weapon will have two modes of fire, i'll figure them all out eventually. The graphics are mostly done, i just need to add some highlights and need to CG 2 more weapons and their pickup and projectiles/attack-graphics.

I'm finishing up the remake of the 10th mape "Hellkeep". Running into a slight mappers block at the moment though. Hopefully it will be finishes sometime this week along with all the Ep3 weapons.

DE-EP3 monsters are taking a long time. Currently finishing up the Chaos-Elemental and the Hellstorm Soul Harvester. I'm almost done editing the Anagorak (of HS) from the heresiarch.

any chance you'll ever make more human/uac weapons?

Those do look awesome :).

eliw00d: I seem to recall, but could be mistaken, that DE Episode 4 will be set on Earth/in a human outpost of some kind. So presumably that will make use of more human-built weapons.

I have to say, these are probably the best sprites you've done so far. I can't tell exactly what the Hellforge Cannon is supposed to be, though. Is it some kind of demon vertebrate with a smashed skull?

I agree :P There seems to be a lack of good centered custom (sub)machine guns / rifles for doom...
