Reincarnation of Evil - Remaking Doom 3/4 Content in 2

Reincarnation of Evil is a project dedicated to remaking the new content (monsters, weapons and items) in Doom 3, Resurrection of Evil and Doom 2016. The goal is to provide a resource for mappers to use, remaking these new resources in a way that lets them fit in with the original lineup of Doom 2 monsters and weapons, while providing different gameplay roles or themes mappers may find useful.

Formerly, this project was trying to remake all of the monsters from Doom 3, including monsters that already existed in Doom 2. I won't try to do that this time, unless the Doom 3 version is significantly different. I realized the only way remaking all of the monsters would be useful is to remake Doom 3 in (G)ZDoom, but in that case I'd just play Doom 3 anyway.

The names will have links to reference screenshots from the games themselves.

So, anybody going to tell me what they think of the wraith's decorate? Though I've never even seen it in action, I thought I emulated it quite well.

Heh, first I misread the title as Repercussions of Evil Monster wad. :P

So... uh, does it do anything besides chase the player and claw?

Heh, next time check the decorate before you ask that, lol. It's supposed to teleport to the player like in Doom 3 when it's within a certain range of the player (close enough to reach the player, but far enough so it makes a difference).

I made it so there's a high chance it jumps over it, so it doesn't teleport all the time, but in retrospect, that's not a great idea because of the range. I'll update the wad.

Edit: Yup, wad updated.

Here's a ZShare link: d3wraith.wad - 0.00MB. I'd've uploaded it to Badongo, too, but my internet's acting up.

Keep in mind that it replaces the imp, so you just have to load up map01 to see it.

That's awesome! Powerful little guy; I wish I could use this fella' alongside normal imps in any WAD, would certainly add an interesting element to Doom.

It's been a while since I've played Doom 3, but weren't wraiths relatively quick? I might be thinking of the... mantis... maggot? Something...

Maggots are the two-headed things that usually crawl on all fives, wraiths are the grey, hunched over things with the scythe-like arms.

I'm glad you like it. Once it has sprites and sounds, people will be able to use it for whatever wads they want it for.

The teleportation for these guys is a lot better then it was for the Doom 3 Wraiths. It actually feels like there's a point to it.

Thanks, Phucket. I was pretty sure that a lot of what monsters are supposed to do are scripted into the map. I summoned a few imps in the demo and they barely did anything, lol.

I'd like to get started on the guardian, next, but I'll wait until the next version of GZDoom, for A_LookEx. I'm not sure what to do in the meantime, though.

And I still need sprites.

The Wraith is pretty good, but shouldn't the transportation trick allow them to go past certain borders. An example is the one in Entryway where the switch is. The Wraith couldn't go past that location.

EDIT: Dammit. Too late to delete the bottom post.
