Led's Generic Weapon Mod Updated 14th August, 2020

Addons! Load these alongside the mod for some new additions!

Bloody Chainsaw by Neccronixis

What is this?

This is a simple gameplay mod consisting of new weapons and quality of life changes to vanilla items. All weapons have been overhauled and replaced with more satisfying and powerful counterparts whilst still retaining a strong balance in the game. Every weapon has its use!

I started off by combining code from mods like Faspons and Weapons of Saturn, as well as some code from Patriot1776, faslrn and wildweasel. I've hopefully made something enjoyable for everyone.

Features?

  • An options menu - want to customize some aspects of the mod to your liking? Feel free!
  • Reloading can be enabled/disabled on the fly!
  • New weapons, with added punch, casings & smoke
  • Pickup flashes - picking up important items actually feels good!

What's new?

Changelog wrote:First, the sound changes:
-Firing sound effects have been overhauled for all weapons, featuring more bass, power & punchiness
-Chainsaw firing & idle sounds loop correctly & are cut off properly when deselecting/being turned off
-Reloading sounds have been modified for Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Super Shotgun, Minigun & Plasma Rifle
-Distant explosion sounds have been added for the Rocket projectile & the Grenade projectile with varying volumes depending on the projectile
-The Grenade projectile no longer falls when exploding
-More variations of holster & foley sounds added to select/deselect/reload states
-Item pickup sounds have been modified for the following:
Armor & health bonus
9mm ammo clips
Shotgun shells & box of shotgun shells
Rockets
Mini stimpack & normal stimpack
Berserk
-New casing sounds for the 9mm bullets & shotgun shells
-A new option has been added which allows you to turn off the armor spark effect when damaged
-Fixed a bug where quick-punching the Exit switch with Berserk will cause the next level to be zoomed in when starting
-Rocket explosion sprite offsets have been adjusted to emanate closer to centre point of rocket impact
-Empty magazines dropped by weapons have been scaled down slightly & only play their sounds when bouncing
-BFG & Super Shotgun Ready sprites have been renamed internally to avoid conflicts with certain WADs
-Reloading CVARs have been renamed to avoid conflicts

Additionally, the file has been renamed from li-wpnitm to li-gnrcwpn.

Updated! I've replaced the chaingun with an assault rifle, still need to try balancing it a bit. Right now, it has a high rate of fire & damage at close range, with a lot of horizontal recoil & not very good damage at long range. It has great accuracy if fired in single shots. I would like to try finding beefier sounds for it, but I think they're fine at the moment.

I still haven't quite thought that out. I was thinking of replacing them with WoS weapons, but made more satisfying and more fun to use, kind of like how you did with Faspons. Another idea is to replace them with smooth vanilla-like weapons. The way I'm making this is really unprofessional and sloppy, but I've been testing out different weapons and seeing how they fit with the aesthetics of the other weapons. I wanted to get the weapons that are already in at a stage where they are balanced, but fun to use, and fit for different purposes.

Looks great so far! The individual shell system is marvelous! The sounds are great as well. Have you ever played Crossfire? Is a Counter Strike copy that has many cool weapons and sounds. I suggest you take a look. I have them, but not in a good quality.

Pickup flashes are a reliever! I wasn't used to them.

Loved the MOH sounds! And all the other ones actually.

I'm waiting for updates! Keep up the good work!

Hey! Glad you liked! The individual shell system still needs tweaking, and it was actually really easy to code :D I've played Crossfire before, some sounds in it are very cool. Pickup flashes are a cool, very subtle effect IMO, and I think looks quite nice. :)

Don't worry about the sloppiness :lol: Let me know what you think of for each other weapons, would love to see what will do with them ;-)

I had a thought about the new shell system: in Faspons, I have it where shotgun guys have the potential to drop a 4-pack of shells and I thought "what if shotgunners here died and spread 4 shells around that you could pick up?". I don't know if would look cool or play out but could be something to tinker with.

I actually did tinker with that. I made a test shotgunner that dropped the individual shells, and it actually worked pretty well! The shells dropped were randomized, so they all looked different every time, and it looked pretty cool. I don't know if I'll be implementing this in the mod or not, but it was a pretty cool looking effect. :) I think in the next update I'll replace the SSG, then move on to the Rocket Launcher. I've been testing offset animations to see how they look on WoS weapons, and they look real nice, so I'll be adding them in.

Updated! I've added the Rocket Launcher in, as well as pickup sounds for the Berserk, Shellbox, Ammobox, Rocket and Rocketbox. The Berserk also has a pickup flash now. I had to remove the offsets that were put on the Rocket Launcher's original reload as they would leave a pixel gap just below the weapon. :(

Updated! I've added the Super Shotgun in now. You can single fire it twice with primary fire, or you can fire both shots with a secondary fire. I've tried to make the animation look nice.
How is the balance on the weapons? I would like to know, so I can work on it a bit more.

Hotfix: Fixed the Super Shotgun being picked up with no ammo

Important update: I fixed the Yellow Skull key (previously when picked up it gave a Blue Skull instead)

What i like most is the attention you give to fix errors as fast as you can to bring better material on.

I'll edit this post here soon with feedback!


EDIT: Well, i think it's a good idea to make separate ways. Mainly for compatibility reasons.

Everything fires, feels smooth, and norths the gameplay to a faster rhythm.

There's only one thing. The Rocket Launcher reload calls a sprite that spawns something weird. Just keep looking to the left upper part of the weapon to see what i mean.


Keep up the good work! Now we just need these cell weapons to disintegrate them! :)

What's different between this and your other gameplay mod? Seems like it'd be easier to merge them together.

The other gameplay mod is a mess - it's code is all over the place, there's a lot of unused content taking up space and I felt like starting again with all of it. As well as this, the fact that it had it's own gore system probably turned off people who are fond of using Ketchup or Droplets. Not everybody likes tracers, either, as they make WADs that use switches activated by gunfire harder. (Fragport is an example) I'd like to make something that appeals to a bigger audience.

With this mod, I have tried to make the code a lot easier to read, as well as accomplishing the same tasks that my other gameplay mod did, only organized a lot better. This mod doesn't have tracers, custom monsters or gore - it's purely a weapon/item mod, so it's more compatible with HUDs, Ketchup and monster replacement mods, things like that.

I've also improved a bit with DECORATE since my other gameplay mod, and I've been attempting to make the weapons feel a bit more satisfying than in the other gameplay mod. (Like getting involved with offsets to make the weapons look much better when firing)

Hey! Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I am trying to improve on vanilla gameplay a bit. :) The "something weird" is actually supposed to be an empty rocket magazine, kinda like how the Rifle also drops an empty magazine. It looks really strange, might have to try finding new sprites for it. :lol:
I have a decent idea for the cell weapons, still not sure on the Chainsaw yet though. :wink:

Also, your comment on what you like most made my day. :mrgreen:
