Blue's gentler on the eyes, but you should probably take a lesson from the ammo counters and raise the contrast on the other hud elements against the background so they stick out more.
Also I found a glitch with the VSK7. If you switch to Slug shots, the alt-fire has infinite ammo for an explosive spread shot; found it because I picked up the weapon at the beginning of Doom 2 where it'd have no alt ammo to begin with.

there's something about the BFG that makes it really ineffective against cyberdemons
i can dump all the ammo i have on one and still need to finish it off with bullets
also the alt-ammo switch sounds play twice for the tertiary ammo type and the shotgun's ammo swap gets jammed when switching unless you fire/ switch weapons
revolver is pretty cool now

The altammo bug with shotguns has been fixed, as well as the switching sound playing multiple times. I may mess around with the remaining HUD elements (the arms bar numbers aren't supposed to stick out until you pick up weapons anyway).

I don't know why the BFG does so little damage to bosses, I need to read into it more.

Weapons now switch slightly faster - it should be a noticeable gameplay difference.

just slap +forceradiusdmg in the projectile to counter the +noradiusdmg flag that bosses have
it might become TOO powerul, but nothing some damagefactor tweaking can't fix

I've given +forceradiusdmg and +nodamagethrust to the support projectiles and chain of explosions - Cyberdemons now fall to four direct hits with the Crimson Spectre.

The VSK7's altfire switch should no longer lock up.

EDIT: Fixed a bug where the Sokova 46's grenade didn't deal damage to the player. The Demon Blood Sword can now reflect projectiles.

You know what this mod can use? A TITLEPIC screen. Also is the quad damage replacing the blursphere? If so, I wouldn't mind seeing it as well since the hitscanners and projectile users seem hellbent on laying waste to me.

Also even tho you toned down the enemy aggression, where is it I change it, is it just the Refire stuff chance?

Quad Damage does replace the Blursphere - I'm thinking of replacing the Invulnerability sphere with something more fun.

It's mostly that enemies have a possible jump at the end of each See state loop that increases their aggression point-blank, with the refire more or less adding to it.

I've added a new ammo drop - Bullet Bags, which contain an assortment of normal (non-alternate) bullets for the Surfeit Torment, Sokova 46, Pulsar-D, and GPMG. Smaller bags occasionally replace clips while larger ones sometimes replace clipboxes.

The Sokova 46's damage has been increased slightly.

Fixed a bug with bullet bag spawn states crashing the game via a zero-tic-duration loop.

The HUD is a little odd, try making the hologram parts transparent.

I've increased transparency in the HUD elements. I've also added the Francis-G8K assault rifle, which deals more damage than the Sokova 46 at a slightly lower rate of fire and greater bullet spread, but overall stays on target much more easily.

EDIT: I've added the XM27 Submachine Gun, a lightweight automatic weapon with an extremely high rate of fire. Occasionally spawning in the place of the clip, the XM27 is a slot 2 weapon.

Can it dual wield? 'cause dual wielding needs more love.

This mod went from a weapon relplacement mod with basic stuff to this level of versatile semi-overpowered stuff right here ( Autoshotguns with explode shells, an explosive handgun that uses mini shotshells to blow shit up, and railguns that shoot explosive rounds, Please don't nerf this). I think this mod is going to get even better with new tools of destruction being released at a steady pace , thats if you plan on adding more things.

P.S. This mod has got me thinking about something weird so please feel free to correct me if i am wrong but is this mod a weapon testing ground for that Immensely Large Project you were planning?

Do tell me not much changed under the monster DECORATE sections since 0.13? The download links still show an April date too and the same file name, should they not follow a version filename like the_trooper_v18 or something like that? Makes it easier to hold onto older files without overwriting the previous version.

To be honest, I usually don't remember to update the "last updated" text with each update, which is probably something I should handle more promptly in the future. I usually don't apply the version name to the files themselves - hence thetrooper.pk3, helsturm.pk3, etc. Monster DECORATE hasn't really changed much since 0.1.3 either

Quite possibly, depending on which project you are referring to.

I may also be thinking about doing something with this weapon:
