Well Jabberwock agreed in lending his ultra-cool CyberPirate to the mod:

The animations and angles ae not done yet, but he said he´ll try. There´s a lot of detail so this should take a while. No problem because I don´t think it should appear in the first maps anyway. He also offered to make some sprites, which is very nice since I can´t draw a thing.

Yesterday I did the Doomguy face: Image

The eyepatch is finished in all frames, but I think adding an old-fashioned moustache will be fun.

I had some ideas for other monsters:

I really don´t know what to do with the Cacodemon! Sugestions? Also, I am still looking for Circus textures, if anyone got a clue...

Put a parrot perched on a horn?
[EDIT] As to circus textures, these are from Interstate '82.

i'm slowly working on a caco edit, mixing it with a parrot. except the eye, it's mostly a from-cratch job, so i'll try to send you a preview soon :p.

Give the cacodemon an eye patch and have it float around and fire projectiles randomly.

Also, this is really cool stuff. :)

This is pretty sweet. I like the vibe and the monster changes have me cracking up.
Looking forward to seeing what you do with this!

Oh dear... this was my first thought too. It'd appear insanity is contagious.

And if Lost Souls don't come with cross-bones, I'll be very upset :P

Just played through this now and I really like it :) It's entertaining and very well done, feels like a perfect mix of Doom and MI :) Do you plan to add even more maps?

Put a "bandana" at the caco, just like the shotgunguy.

Could be nice Ravick, I tried the bandana in the lostsoul, Pirates of Caribean style, I think that´s gonna work.

Thank you! Yes there´ll be more maps, today I started the 3rd map, I´ll take Shadesmaster´s suggestion and do the Treasure Cove. If you want to contribute with a map you´re welcome, I can send you the texture resource. I think it would be nice to release it with at least ten maps.

Thank you very much! I can´t think of a decent gameplay for a Circus right now, but I still want a Circus level in this mod.

That´s a pity :lol:. But if you have other ideas, bring them. Maybe a little sailor hat with an anchor would be nice? Or it would make it look like a jokewad?

well ideas for the caco :
-as xaser said, an eyepatched caco firing randomly would be really fun :p. but poor caco would need to be super aggressive and have a faster projectile to pose some threat by itself (never understood why those giant meatballs were so weak in doom in the first place, they are basically floating, easier to hit imps)
, because it wouldn't work well with other monsters.
-what i can't do : a feathery caco with a beak.
-an octopus (just need red tentacles, and maybe a beak instead of the mouth. I may try to do something like this since i already have a caco-with-beak frame.)
-a caco with an anchor, because being lighter-than-air must be quite impractical when there is wind and you got to sleep :p

Perhaps you're spoiled by the SSG? In DooM 1 you don't get that luxury... They're a major threat up until Cells become more common.

well, yeah, the cacos at the start of episode 3 are annoying, but that's more because it takes forever to kill them with the pistol than because they are a real pain. you got the RL in E1 and the first caco in E2 is in M1 plasma rifle secret room. Doom 2 enemies ? chaingunner (argh), revenant (re-argh), manc, arachnotron, pain elemental (this one is really stupidly hard), archvile. Doom 1 enemies ? tanky snails with a 10 speed fireball. Episode 1 is the best thing doom has to offer imo, but even on my SNES with lag and all that shit it's not a challenge anymore ^^

edit : but you're right, the ssg was a big mistake in doom 2 if you ask me. RL damage at point blank ? 3 times the damage for only twice the ammo ? and found in a non-secret room in level 2 ? good idea, you'll never use anything else before you get a plasma :p
