Lowtech Remake (Updated 22/02/17)

Post by Dr_Cosmobyte »

Image

What's this?

It's a remake of the Lowtech Mod made by Captain Red back in 2005. I always liked the way he worked the replacement of weapons. So, what i wanted to do was to remake it, add smoke, light, casings, centered weapons, altfires, better sounds, and get a little deeper into the theme. Of course, following feedback.

All i ask is a little attention and sincere feedback!

Credits are inside the rar, but here's another copy:

Not bad. Glock is really cool to fire, and the burst fire is pretty interesting too. The bow is really fun to use, as well. :D
Small nitpick: There's a bit too much quake on the Chainsaw, at least to me. (personal nitpick)
Keep up the good work!

Oh yes. Chainsaw kickback is not up to my taste as well.

You're in the credits list, but not only because i'm using DAT keycard sound, but also because i used your SSG coding to fix up mine, and i have to read the instructions manual in pretty much everything i do :D

So, thanks man. This mod still has ground to be covered. The custom enemies sure will be a good exercise to me!

No problem. You can use any of my code, no need to ask. 8-)
Custom enemies will be cool, IIRC I think the original Lowtech mod has pistol zombies instead of rifle zombies which made more sense. Also, there was a crossbow that shot dynamite straight out of Redneck Rampage which also functioned pretty well. :lol:

That's my problem in game. Since it used dynamite (and replaced the RL), it uses the same ammo as the TNT, rather than making them spawn on Cells. Cells are actually fuel for the Flamethrower.

My objective is to find a proper ammo positioning. I'm thinking about that.

Well you could try using spawners to replace ammo types, that have a chance to spawn as flamethrower fuel or TNT. Not really the best way of doing it, but it seems to work. :wink:

solid yet super, good work once again!

but of course, i have few gripes, the arrow disappears when it hits the walls. it kinda make sense when it hits the enemies except walls, though. and i kinda frustrated when i didn't got BFG9000 replacement weapon except TNT. is there will be even more weaponry?

also do you know pistol magazine sprite and empty one were made by me? would be nice if you can add my name in your credit list!

EDIT: extra gripes; i think only imp and mancubus ball become fancy except other monsters' projectiles, arachnotron replacement's projectile has no decal, seems mancubus and hell knight's attacking role has been changed for some reason, cyberdemon's rocket is really unfair to dodge, it shows nothing but smoke and directly follows you, also has no decal at all.

minor gripe, i forgot to remove the brown from the scope when using it cocking, it looks fuggo

major gripe, the icon of sin is a bastard because of its design. You have to add some sort of projectile explosive even if it doesnt fit at all, because you cant complete so so many wads and original levels without an explosive weapon that shoots straight

J J J J J God sorry sorry sorry man, really. I got the thing straight from Aracnocide and really forgot putting it there. I will edit first post.

I tried to respect the original mod's weaponry, otherwise, i would have some more weapons to use, like a nailgun, a baseball bat and some melee weapons.

The seekermissile is from the original mod decorate as well. I personally think it leaves it more challenging.

I will bring more updates.
