Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

I dicarded some ideas a couple of days ago, among them a flamethrower (burning sprites would be hard to do)
a gatling gun (Overpowered and out of context) and some melee weapons (good for nothing).

About the SMG, i have my doubts about making a modern one or some classical ones, like the AK or the STG-44.

I just think to keep consistency the m60 should have a sprite change to be center aimed, thats all! :o

oh, not the flamethrower!
maybe you should use the Reelism Burning states instead

Just make sure you ask permission to use them first.

Yes, killing spiders with fire would be amazing. I'll download reelism to see the burnin' states.

Don't worry, i'll contact the creators :D

And, Here are some weapon sprites i discarded from this one or other projects (actually i considered using them on Aracnocide):

cause i enjoy the center aimed sprites a lot more (and to coax you to change the overused m60 to help keep center aimed sprites balanced and thematically consistent) heres cleaned up center aimed sprites for the two best guns so you can make em look better

I'd say go for ammo drops, I've always hated infinite ammo stuff.

I would say that anything would nice over grinding away with the crowbar. Case in point: Doom 2's own MAP02. The map practically forces you to rely on dropped shotguns to survive, and without them you are very, very shanked. The pistol here wouldn't help much even if it did have infinite ammo, but the chainsaw would at least be a boon.
