I’d be down for taking a page from MetaDoom and making the gender-neutral/NB face sprite someone with a balaclava or ballistic mask. ...or a robot.

Yeah something like that sounds like a good way to go about things, Balaclava for NB, Robot for object.

I noticed that there is a new "attempt to kick down door" action. What or I guess rather where is it useful?

Very, very thin doors.

It's not very useful at all and may go the way of using the chainsaw as a blunt instrument.

EDIT: though it did only take me seven kicks in god mode to take down the red door in the range just now...

I was also able to kick down the red door/gate? to the switch in the sewers level in base doom 2. Technically I knocked it down several times as it usually only knocked out a little bit in the bottom requiring further breaking.

You just download the .zip and drag it onto GZDoom. Instructions on this webpage.

I have half a mind to post to Feature Suggestions: "Formally deprecate, abolish and create startup warning exit for '.pk3' extension."

They're all just zip files.

Good luck with that, that's the majority of ZDoom mods that would magically start spitting startup warnings for no good reason.

They're all just zip files.

Keeping them named "zip" just makes it so most people will double-click on them and open them as if they're things that need extracting, thanks to every single modern OS handling them as such. A different file extension helps to disambiguate between "this needs extracting" and "this needs to be opened as is."

What are the specifics for kicking down a door? Because I don't think thickness is the only factor as I kicked down something that was about chest high and much thicker that any standard door by accident.

The "door busting" calculation uses a fair bit of guesswork and randomization to determine the size of the sector you're trying to break. Sometimes it hits weird cases where a tiny little sliver of sector is indestructible, or a corner-piece of a huge sector is a critical weakpoint.

3.7.2a (which would have been 3.7.2.0 in the old naming system) released!

Highlights:
  • Fixed desync on leaning.
  • More sophisticated *ERP interface.
  • Increased Freedoom compatibility.
  • Restatement of reduced tolerance for "politics shouldn't be in games" idiocy, which should have been obvious to anyone who has read the manual.
