I think some mods like guncaster (or guncaster vindicated?) have this..


If I recall correctly, this was attempted way back then, but there were problems with it. However, the player pawn as well as the "weapons carried" code in the mod have been improved since then (Mainly to fix voodoo doll issues and co-op) so I believe it may be possible to do now. I think making it an option would be a good idea, since some people may want to preserve the aspect of starting fresh with death exits.

Thanks for the feedback!

There are a lot of general quality of life changes coming to the mod as well as improvements to co-op coming in the next update. A few examples of what is coming: being able to sell weapons or equipment items at any vending machine, health bars of other players added while playing in co-op, Repeaters rework, new equipment items and equipment bonuses, Weapon Enhancers granting slightly more XP as well as being able to stack up to 999, and toned down Dread Trooper and Crusher AI.

It just needs a bit more testing to catch any possible surprise issues, but other than that, a release should be ready soon.

That sounds really great. I only just recently discovered bullet-eye, after finding it sitting in my doom directory. It's a lot of fun and there's a surprising amount of depth.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying it! Again, I have Ace/Accensus to thank for helping to make the mod what it is today. As I tend to say often, the mod has strayed far from its original arcade style roots, but I think it turned out for the better. The replay value sure would have been lacking otherwise.

I hope the new weapons and other content I have planned soon will be fun for the players! Thanks for playing!

New update! I did want to wait until I got some more weapons in before releasing a stable build, but looking over the posts here in the topic - there were some problems that definitely needed to be addressed ASAP such as the possible VM Abort while using the Assassin Vulcan and the Giga Crush outright not working. Problem is it slipped my mind until I read the issues again! The full changelog is below, but here are some highlights:

Major changes:
1. Weapon/Equipment Enhancers were done away with. Upgrading weapons and equipment is now achieved by using GP (money), and money drops/acquisition have been increased to compensate the change.
2. Damage randomization for the player's weapons has been removed. Now, all weapons (other than explosive area of effect weapons due to mechanics) deal the same amount of damage every shot. This will make it much easier to keep track of how many shots for most weapons are needed to slay an enemy. The damage for each weapon now uses the "middle ground" of the previous randomized values in most cases, so the power still feels consistent.

Other changes include:
1. Reduced aggressiveness for Dread Troopers (Zombiemen) and Crushers (Shotgunners), unless playing on Dread Level 8, which will then revert them to their previous AI.
2. 2 new Tech weapons, with one of them only dropping from an enemy.
3. New equipment items and new equipment bonuses. New "Alpha" equipment items that have no unique effects, but allow for the placement of 5 equipment bonuses, rather than the standard 3.
4. New weapon magazine size bonuses, allowing you to fire more with your favorite weapons, should you acquire an equipment bonus for them.
5. All default Doomguy hands replaced!

EDIT: Minor bugs, but you will still be able to find Weapon or Equipment Enhancers here and there, and the "Repair All" key makes mention of enhancer usage rather than GP, but still uses and removes GP as intended. These are basically visual bugs and should not impact gameplay in a major way.

-Adjusted ammo spawns from some sources such as low tier enemies and ammo boxes. Made all ammo types equal in drop rate.
-Cost to purchase equipment items from the gacha machine increased to 2000, up from 1000. Since items can be sold now, it makes it easier to purchase than it was previously.

+RAD TERROR+
-Reduced hitbox radius, and now won't attack the player until it can be properly targeted. The player can still be hurt by the radiation aura, however.

=MISC.=
-Clearing map objectives now rewards some GP.
-Fixed keys not being taken when opening chests. Again.
-Players can now sell equipment items to vending machines by dropping an item near one and while Equipment Lock is on (to prevent accidental selling when comparing equipment, which usually requires Equipment Lock to be toggled off). The sell price depends on the item and also its level.
-Increased invincibility time after taking damage. This time is increased with shields.
-The current page of the Status Panel will now be saved and will open to said page when the panel is next opened.

-Renamed health bar frame HUD size CVar to be more logical. As a result, this change resets the option.
-Added player frames in co-op. This will allow you to see the health, shield, name, and position/direction of co-op partners. These can be disabled.
-Added ability to spy other players' inventory without co-op spy. If co-op health bars are enabled, looking at a player within approximately 2000 map units will display their weapons underneath their bars.
-If you have the Equipment Status Panel open, looking at a player would allow you to browse their equipment items. Input will be frozen until you can see your own inventory again, which can be done by looking away.
-Certain props now remove their SHOOTABLE flag in order to no longer show up in the Target Spy mod after they have relinquished their items.
-Fixed skipping of Shop Status Panel in Shuffle Mode.
-An altered palette has been added in order to utilize player colors in co-op while not butchering the original player colors. This does not affect the player sprite when changing colors, but a small gem which hovers over players.
-Added two new sounds for when enemies fall from great heights.
-Added one new enemy damage sound and 2 death explosion sounds.
