After a bunch of Twitter polls, I've decided to turn ammo, health and pickup sprites into 3d Models!

Looks great!

Seeing as how the coins worked out pretty well, i'm hoping this won't impact performance too much. I also feel like maybe there should be an option to turn specifically health/ammo models off - models would probably make them stand out less in combat, which while it's completely fine with something as mundane as coins, could be an issue with health an ammo.

It's actually kind of the opposite, they stand out more now. It's the reason why I decided to overhaul all the pickups, now they rotate and float, they are not static sprites that might be easy to miss behind a bush or some grass (I got some reports of people having trouble spotting pickups in the demo and wanted to address it.)

I can't wait for the full game although Golden Souls mods take a lot of time to make so I don't expect it till at least mid to late 2021.

I really really cannot wait for this after just beating the golden souls 2 on Soaring comet. I really loved the demo and the 2nd fire mode ability for the pistol.Although for the demo i found crouch jump a bit finicky. Although i guess i never let the crouch finish before pressing the jump button sort of like Half life.
Question with the dynamic ammo. When you get new weapons and you go back to levels you said there would be ammo. Does this take the place of some other ammo like it might have been pistol ammo first but then becomes shotgun or rifle ammo instead?

No, new ammo will not replace existing ammo, they'll spawn in other spots on the map, think of it as an "ammo filter" where there's a set placement for a certain kind of ammo, but that only spawns if you've got the weapon that uses it.

For the crouch jump, press crouch first and then jump, you can also keep the crouch key pressed and only tap jump as you land to keep chaining longjumps. The tutorial's guide incorrectly states that you have to press both at the same time, my bad.

Thanks for adding awesome reload animation for that auto shotgun. I guess my suggestion really worked, eh?

And by the way, that lighting arc looks super tall. I guess it could hurt enemies below and above at the same time? Or it's just fancy effect? Looks nice, tho!

*Slayer Coins' general location is now on the automap
*Gibbed enemies drop armor
*Every pickup is now a 3D model
*Several new extreme death animations for the monsters

I might have missed something, but that's because the mod has gone through a lot of changes since the first demo.

....Took me a while to realise what it was.
Didn't know Hideo Kojima was on this forum.

Still, I'm very looking forwards to seeing Golden Souls 3 complete!
1 and 2 were a blast to play through, so I can't wait to see what you have in store this time.
Especially since I didn't expect to see "those" imps working in a restaurant when I played the demo.

And the demo was updated too? Well, I have to check it out again then!
"*Tutorial section now has a more correct explanation of how the Long Jump works (sorry!)"
I had a lot of problems executing it when I played it.
Mostly because I tried to do it Half-Life style without waiting for crouching to finish.
But I think I roughly got the rhythm down.
