Aaah great! Yes, I started playing your 1.3A version yesterday and I'm still in the first levels. Yes, I love that there are those challenging enemies that complicate us and we have to think about the strategy. (That priest would be great if his bullet is instantaneous, don't you think? That he heals them instantly similar to an Arch-vile castings, waooo haha). The gentleman who heals I really liked! You have done a great job and you will set a precedent in hexen! continue like this. Note: Do you speak Spanish?

I wanted to ask you something, in my case I always liked to play with high difficulty, but I understand that a creator must be regulated to please everyone, but they were thinking as something interesting to give it a creative touch and more strategic action and this is to incorporate enemies that have status-altering spells or Buffs / Debuffs. Thetis in the version before his last work had included enemies equivalent to Arch-vile such as the Hierophant that fired when playing a pink curse that slowed us down and diminished the damage. Another example was in the Hexen style an equivalent to the Bishop who was a Priest who healed his own ... How about trying to add enemies that have skills like that to make the game difficult and that one must go through those supports first to win in an enemy zone? would add an interesting touch, don't you think?


Hi ELPoder36!
Yeah, enemies like the Hierophant will appear later in the campaign, I want to make sure almost all WoC enemies from Tethis's addons spawn in some level or dungeons.
I also have plans for all Disciples/Bishops variants in the game, in fact, Priests appear in the Cultist Fortress already. The rest of them have not come out yet because I don't want to overwhelm the player with all the variants at once, new enemies make the player feel like they are progressing in their adventure, that is why I'm taking my time with the remaining monsters :D

Here you can see how the Priest is healing the Disciple:


About the skills, I'm coding new enemies from scratch that bring new strategies without being the typical enemy that only throws a fireball at you, here I coded the Oblivion Knight, an elite version of the Undead Warrior that can heal himself sometimes when he detects you attacked him (the gif is old but most of the code remains the same), so in the end I want to take this opportunity to create more enemies that support others in combat so that you prioritize them first

Yes! It is understandable, look what I did as an idea for you, go to my post and I show you how I thought some enemy vileattack curses towards the player and how I made the priest heal instantly with vileattack and grant shield to others:

This can be really useful for a new bishop variant made from scratch later in the campaign (since I don't want to change the code of the original Tethis monsters). Thanks! :wink:
I think I said this in the past, but if someone wants to contribute to my campaign by doing some levels (caves, castles, overworld areas) I will be happy to include them in my mod :D

I have not made much progress these weeks although I have been improving the mod experience for the player, adding diverses textures in the caves and changing some scripts slightly in many old maps :wink:
I noticed that the japanese version of Hexen 64 has censored blood, this gave me an idea to add a few drowned Ettins in the swamp to add more realism even if it is a very minor detail.



Wasteland Tunnels is on the way, this underground area connects both sides of the wasteland cliff (WIP)



After getting this key, some platforms will rise forming a small labyrinth while the lava will begin to melt the ground full of bones and you will have to run backwards before it catches you, I'm glad of this small surprise for the player!

In the past I had plans that when you attacked a villager or an allied npc it would hit you, similar to Strife, but this created some problems with your pets attacking them in an infinite battle and giving a bit of a silly result, so I just kept the pain state, even so it gives a feeling that everything feels more alive:

I'd like to give some kind of release date, but I'm really working very slowly on this sadly, although z0k is helping me by creating some new maps to speed things up, remember that if you want to contribute with a level I will be happy to add it to my campaign mentioning you in the credits :D

Another thing that I forgot to mention is that the Banishment Device is no longer replaced, I prefer to have it as an unused item in the WoC code (I think that in WoC Hexen there was no way to get it without the use of the console)
This artifact is called Fireball Device now but its function remains the same as in 1.3A where it casts a powerful fireball that scales with your level, it hits like a truck on bosses so there is a good reason why this spell is worth 3 golden tokens in the witch shop :wink:
