Shades of Doom v4.0 - Flippin' Cool (06-01-21)

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

Damn. That seems like an issue that's hard (for me) to solve. I'm guessing a complete rewrite to ZScript would help?

Yeah, and another possibility would be using custom CVARs instead of ACS globals.

The CVAR solution is something I know how to do. Thanks for that!

This mod is a lot more interesting to play with other weapon mods. Now I don't need Project Brutality when I want different kinds of hellspawn to fight.

Compatibility is a major part of the mod. Glad you like it. :)

You know, Duke3D enemies would probably fit rather well. I can already see Pig Cops in the Shotgun Zombie category, Suicide Drones in the Lost Souls, and that hovering overseer with the rocket launchers as a cacodemon addition.

I've had some of the Duke 3D enemies added to the mod before I released it, but to me they stick out like a soar thumb. Technically I could add arouind half of the enemies from the game, but visually I don't think they fit with the rest of the monsters.

They're a completely different art style (sprites created from 3D models, like Doom 64) and a higher resolution. Art direction is also completely different, so the designs themselves aren't like what Kevin Cloud or Adrian Carmack would have made.

can i ask for a little help here?

i can not seem to find a theme i like .... is it not possible for the future to be able to choose custom classes? so i can mix and match myself?

what makes no sense to me is the heads will roll enemies.

It is possible to add. But this is a randomizer mod, not a replacer mod. I will not be adding a de-randomizer option to my randomizer mod.
The "Heads Will Roll" theme chooses enemies that loose their heads when dying.
