The mod concept is nice, but if I can make one request, please super-duper never autoalign STARTAN ever again.

What's the proper way to handle them?

Nice, I have two questions though:

1: How advanced will the bosses be? Will they make extensive usage of scripting? Even though MP series marketing campaign made it a point that the game was less combat orientated than most FPS games If I'm correct (I don't think they even used that term to describe it), the major bosses (and a whole load of minor ones, mostly in 2 and 3) were very advanced, especially for FPS bosses.

Will the bosses here be that complicated, or not?

2: Will there be a lot of background story found around the levels? I remember the MP series has a lot of background story that isn't necessary to proceed in the game, and some of it is very detailed.

1) I asked about implementing weak spots and was told I could spawn collision boxes that position themselves with every frame so I could do something with that. Yeah, I do plan to give them some more complex attack patterns, certainly more complex than Vanilla Doom. Some bosses will have very obvious weak spots, like the Cyberdemon's exposed entrails.

2) I already have a sort of example of how I'd achieve that in the current video progress where there's a log about an imp making it through the teleporter and how, after losing 2 men, they just barely managed to get it back in. I was going to do things like that with a story presented through logs like on Metroid Prime. I was thinking I could use things like Doom 3, and someone suggested using the Doom Comic, for source material.

You're combining two of my favorite games into one.
That...is...AWESOME!
Good luck on making this project, mate!

My laptop motherboard being fried put a hamper on the project. I managed to get Ubuntu 13.10 running On this Android but I'd need to find a way to compile Doom Builder or done other Zdoom capable editor for an ARMHF processor.

Thankfully, the hard drive was perfectly intact and I managed to pull the WAD file out of it. Anyone who wants to play the last version I managed to make will find it on the first page.
