ZHeXen: V 1.0 RELEASED!!! Contributions?

Postby Drake Raider » Wed Aug 05, 2009 8:31 pm

Hello.

Some of you may remember me from the abysmal mod for hexen, GZBlackMarsh. Well, I have done it again, but I think this will be better than it. I stuck(Mostly,) to decorate coding, with very little map changes. The monsters all are stronger have better AI, but are randomized in occurrence. So don't be surprised to find tougher monsters in winnowing hall, though it is unlikely. I haven't finished the accompanying text file, so I haven't included it in the first release. I hope that is okay. Please report back after every Hub, on how you liked the bosses and such. Keep an eye out for secrets, and keep in mind that you can reenter hubs.

Okay, now for some screenshots:

Spoiler:


A small foretaste.


XPack v2 Released!
XPack version 2 finished. 5 ludicrously hard levels,.
NOTE2: THIS MOD *REQUIRES* THAT YOU HAVE ZHEXEN TO RUN IT!!!!
Version 0.2:

Changes: Zombies made waaaaay(10000x) tougher, but more
vulnerable(3000x) to certain attacks.
Undead knights, shadow beasts, ghouls, made weaker. Knight attacks
changed to fire.
Levels vastly overhauled, *much bigger* and more detailed.
Exorcist class balanced out more.

Good Luck, please critisize the level work, if you finish it. I had to do it on skill 1, and died over 15 times, but I play zhexen on skill 3, and die maybe 4-5 times out of stupidity in the whole game.

I found out that winnowing hall doesn't work in XPack v2, will try to fix it next release.
Don't waste ammo on the zombies, find the vulnerability and use it!!

Last but not least, the download link:

XPack v1 Released!
XPack version 1 finished. 5 hardish levels, 1 player class, 4 weapons, and 7 enemies. NOTE- I built this in two days, so the levels are playable, but veeery poor quality. NOTE2: THIS MOD *REQUIRES* THAT YOU HAVE ZHEXEN TO RUN IT!!!! Versions 1+ should work.

NEW VERSION
It's been awhile, and this is a massive bump, but I updated ZHeXen again with the more recent builds of zdoom. I added the nourishment system in, as well as making 5 new maps for a more enjoyable worldmap, in my opinion. Also, the ettin, when they appear, are better in groups then they were before, with the new command system. Both are only basically tested, but i'd like feedback.

Spoiler:


P.M. me if you are willing to help.

Proposed goals v 2.0:
Nine more DM maps(Hexen themed, deathmatch aimed)

10 dungeons:
DUN01 - DUN10
Description
Code: Select allExpand view

Single maps with one portal for entrance and exit.
No hubs.
They [i]may[/i] use keys found in the world, but [i]may not[/i] contain keys.
They may only use puzzle items that are unique to that map.
Final room contains a unique monster(boss,) and a teleporter back to the start room.
No weapon pickups.
No DM starts.
Mana, artifacts, monsters are fine.



If anyone wishes to contribute, feel free.

X( *Whap* Sorry Shades, total facepalm moment. :lol:

Uh, not to sound unduly negative, but I thought the point of the melee weapons was to have a fallback you could always use... Please forgive me if I misunderstood the meaning there.

Anyway, better monster AI and some randomness both sound refreshing. :)

Sorry about that. The file is having a hard time uploading. I've tried sendspace and fileshack, but it won't load, so just wait. But I have some screenshots, too. 17 meg file. And the The melee uses limit comes from an earlier attempt to make an rpg mod. I haven't got around to fixing it.

So the boss of the Seven Portals is a god damn tree? Sounds interesting.

Actually, the Seven Portals boss is a mage with elemental attacks. The "Tree" is probably Korax, though.

I find the mage's starting weapon WAY too weak, and the custom maps lack in detail.

BUT - I DO like the way that based on what class you choose, the other two guys are there to help you. Now THAT'S an interesting featurette. AND They use all the weapons they currently have!

They have all the weapons when they start to the best of my knowledge, but they only use the ones that they have mana for, and choose their attack based on the range of the enemy. But they DO have Limited mana, though it regenerates, so they use weaker attacks more often.

EDIT: Could anyone tell me how to make the friendly monsters go through BLOCKMONSTER linedefs?
