Projects that have specifically been abandoned or considered "dead" get moved here, so people will quit bumping them. If your project has wound up here and it should not be, contact a moderator to have it moved back to the land of the living.

NOTE: This thread was based upon an older thread. Disregard any comments made on page 1!
NOTE #2: Please set the "Adjust Sprite Clipping" to Smarter. I will not make multiple patches for other settings!
INFORMATION ABOUT BULLET SYSTEM:
Every 'type' of bullet will have a base damage and speed. An example, the Pistol and Machine Gun will fire a minimum damage, high speed projectile. While larger rounds are slower, but more powerfull. (Such as the Chaingun). This means, that the light projectiles drop faster (not enough weight to keep the velocity) than the heavier rounds. This could mean life or death for you in the end.

Project Aurora is yet, another attempt of me trying to do an enhancement mod and saying 'screw you' to the current ones out there. In the past, I tried to keep up with the Joneses. Caused me to create four wads, all of which I have abandoned. Project: Aurora is my latest attempt. This time around, I am challenging my self. Can I make a nice looking wad, while keeping true to what people remember DooM is all about?
This wad used to be a particle wad, but that lead to a major problem. "Art Style Clash", where on one hand, I was using sprites for some of the effects. On the other, I wanted to use particle effects. Currently, the only particle effects remaining in Aurora is the torches, soulsphere effects and the Particle Fountains (which will be provided in another wad)
Over the past few years, I've been working on DooM mods on and off, I reckon this will be my last one. Alot of kids these days are building gorgeous looking mods (Brutal DooM, for an example). While, I might not have anything new to bring to the table, but this wad can be considered a mass experiment.
I'm using Eriance weapons (new ones), coded by Xaser. They have been modified (not heavily, but partially) to offer newer enhancements to Project: Aurora.

Why does the shotgun require reload even though nothing else does?
What determines whether the shotgun lifts up to rack the action? It seems a bit confusingly random.
Just to smoothing things up a bit it might be nice to have +reload be the reload key. I haven't looked at the ACS scripts though so I don't know if this is a viable option.
I'm not too sure if this is meant to be a separate project or a resource pack...
Looks sweet But please, any related to change the wepons, please do it in a separate wad. I like to see those pretty lights, and be able to put in/put off light, but no to walk with shadow warrior weapons and so on
