This is a fork I made of Brutal Doom that simplifies the gameplay experience and makes it more enjoyable. A bit was done under the hood to make it a better experience for players in terms of difficulty and balancing.
It started out as more of a personal mod because I had a few minor grievances with how Brutal Doom itself handled, and then it spiraled out of control and turned into me fiddling with all sorts of variables and entering SLADE hypnosis for awhile.

If anyone has any suggestions let me know.

    Tactical Leaning from Josh771
    Added recoil to most bullet weapons.
    All weapons have had their damage reduced across the board to increase player challenge. This also includes the power weapons like the Unmaker and the BFG10k.
    Difficulty selection has been simplified.
    Pistol Class only for simplification: no more Rifle Class, Tactical, or Traditional.
    SMG Zombies now refire like Chaingunners.
    Imp Fireballs now have Vanilla speeds.
    BFG9000 has been given a proper A_BFGSpray.
    BFG10k has been given a weaker A_BFGSpray as well.
    Headshot Damage increased.
    Rifle & SMG ironsight firing animations improved by me.
    Hand Grenades have been buffed.
    The Rifle now shoots in bursts.
    Railgun can be used to do railgun jumps.

simplifies the gameplay experience and makes it more enjoyable. [...] a better experience for players in terms of difficulty and balancing.

It's Brutal Doom V21 in "Tactical mode" without the stamina system, not bad at all.

The problem that I want to talk here is about the shotgun.

When you reload : (For exemple, my shotgun was empty, I grabbed 4 shells and I reload, which mean that I have now 4 shells in the gun and I got the pump animation, but if I take less than 4 shells again and after that I reload, I will have the pump animation again)

Spoiler: Here's a solution for the problem (code taken from my mod Ac!d's Eriguns)


I hope you can understand the problem. (maybe it's a bug, I don't know, the code of Brutal Doom is pretty weird)

Pretty sure that's a quirk within Brutal Doom's code and how it originally works. The Shotgun was weird; what I did to it was increased the spread so it wasn't extremely effective at long range.

UPDATE!
  • Imps now crawl on the ceiling, a feature taken from Project Brutality.

  • Flamethrower range increased, with hard drop on the flames at extended ranges. Flamethrower has had it's damage decreased.
  • Rocket Launcher now has subtle projectile drop.
  • Aiming down sights on the Rifle doesn't Zoom in the screen.

Fixed it! You should now only pump the shotgun when loading from empty.

BUCKSHOT UPDATE!
  • Shotgun spread has been increased for the Shotgun and the Super Shotgun; Assault Shotgun remains the same.
  • Shotgun and Super Shotgun damage increased from 7 to 8; for consistency.
  • The mechanic that makes the Super Shotgun do massive damage to big enemies at close range has been adjusted. Super Shotgun lethal range decreased from 300 to 256; damage increased from 40 to 50.
  • Super Shotgun alt-fire sound cutoff fixed by allocating sounds to proper channels. (Really, Mark?)
  • Shotgun reload has been fixed thanks to consultation from Ac!d

The shotgun problem is still here... :evil:

... but I have a solution :
Spoiler: Erase this

And
Spoiler: Replace by this


It's more easier to understand. (even if don't know what we should need the "Reloading" and "Pumping" inventories)

About the "Tactical Leaning"... It's say that "The default and recommended lean angle is 22.5". It's not 11.5 instead of 22.5 ?

I would personally recommend 11.5, Tactical Leaning is a feature added from the Tactical Leaning script by Josh 771.

I was thinking of doing sprite alterations. This isn't final, of course.
