Is that okay?


Alpha changed through ACS. The black knight is a ghost knight (the one with seeker red axes), since he's already transparent, he made them also invert-color so that you can distinguish it.

I know about all the changes being made via ACS.
I'm just wondering if that's not a rule violation. Don't want a repeat of "Whoops, guess we can allow stealth monsters too."

I tried to give this a shot and ended up making a sequel to my HUMP entry, Bungalow of Dr. Chaos. This is based on the Dead River area from Chasm the Rift, one of the areas you explore in Dr. Chaos Strikes Back.

Trouble with this is, I renamed some textures before realizing "crap, now they won't register unless I include them!" It's the EGYP, AZTC, SKULLSTEP, and SWROK textures, the original names of which I've totally forgotten. I didn't load all the custom textures because frankly the resource pack exercises zero moderation. Do we really need 60+ minor variations of the same texture?

Anyway, feedback requested. I'd like to make a monster-heavy version of this at a later date, so I at least want to know if the puzzles all work this time around.

Don't worry they'll be pruned out when release time comes. ;) They're there for mappers to use them as they please - after all the maps are made I'm going to go through the ones that are needed and keep them, and cut out all the rest.

Anyway - thank you for the entry. ;) I'll give it a whirl.

I just uploaded a new version with a few fixes. Better grab that one instead.

When you said GHOST monsters are ok, you mean the stock ones only, or other monsters with added flags via ACS too?

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand ZScript.

Seeing as how your map already has additional ghost monsters - those are fine. Don't worry about it. :)

Uploaded a new entry. Broke off the tomb area from the larger map so I could make use of all the monsters it contains. Feels right populated now.

Little question. I know custom monsters aren't allowed, but is it allowed to recolor or change properties of the vanilla monsters through ACS?

Oh good, now, what about ZScript?

Also, I can't use the textures from the resource pack, it makes SLADE crash. I'll just go with vanilla stuff and maybe do some quick edits with TEXTURES, if that's ok.

Alright, you can do that.

As for ZScript, it depends on what you want to do.
