Super Skulltag v1.4, back from the dead with RC6!

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

Well yeah obviously IDCLEV doesn't apply to the remake maps (because their lump names are different). But if you want to skip to a particular map, go to the console and type "map SSTMAPXX" with XX being the two-digit map number. It corresponds to the original Doom2 map numbers. Like, the remake of "Downtown" (doom2 MAP13) is SSTMAP13.


Should be pretty straightforward. ;]

do you think it would be much work to replace the plasma from sst with the one from BD? (same for the monsters)

Since Skulltag has become defunct as a source port, does this mean you will change the project name (IE Super Zandronum? :p)

Lol. That's probably the 10th time that's been asked. (I should make an FAQ section. :p)


No, I probably won't change the name for a few reasons.

1.) People are used to "Super Skulltag". Plus it's easier to remember because it's an illiteration! ;p
2.) It continues in "the spirit" of Skulltag mapping. Many of the maps are also in Skulltag format (most of them were made before UDMF was supported in Skulltag).
3.) It still relies on skulltag_actors.pk3 and skulltag_data.pk3 anyways. Keeping the original name would make this more obvious to new users.
4.) All of the map names start with "SST_____" and i don't feel like going through them and changing them all to "SZD___". ;p

You should really remove that FEAR2-like HUD.

I plan to. Not sure if you saw in the Zandronum thread, but Alienwolve and I are working on a new HUD together which will be more simplistic and will use the helmet visor itself. We'll still include the old HUD but it won't be the default.

Sorry, no, don't check Zandronum forums that often. But that sounds great :D

Update:

The next version will include female zombies! 1 out of 8 zombies are female. This goes for all zombie types (grunt, sergeant, chaingunner, SSG guy). Females are faster and attack more often, but have less HP.

What I don't really like about the HUD is the Soldier of Fortune loading bar ammo counter. It just doesn't look right.
