Aliens Weapons-Only Mod for Doom

Postby Twitchy2019 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 3:01 pm

Hey guys, this is a really neato mod that I modified so that you can use weapons from Aliens in Doom without those pesky androids or Xenos getting in your way. The mod is not mine, I just picked and hacked away at it until I got something close to what I was looking for. The original author is user "_sink" from the Zandronum forums. I am placing a link to the mod. Its only good for about 30 days or so (I don't want to sign up for mediafire) so if someone could put the file somewhere more permanent, that would be great. Let me know if the link does not work. Also, this works relatively well, but if you find bugs, I cannot help you as I do not know much about coding mods in general, just enough to delete some things.

I'll post links to the original mod if anyone wants to play the original or look it up. Hope you enjoy.

https://uploadfiles.io/zpit1 Weapons-Only Mod Link (Will be up for 30 days only)
https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5988 Link to the forum post relating to the original mod.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/xqopdbh3aathco8/aliens0.99f.pk3 Link to original, unmodified version featuring Xenomorphs.

Edit #2: I am putting the link back up. If the creator wants this taken down, then he can message me. I sent a message but its been ages since he had any activity on his primary forum.

Kinda obligatory, but have you requested "_sink"'s permission to do so? This kind of thing is usually frowned upon.

Also, screenshots are something good to have a proof of concept.

No, I didn't. I just thought one needed to give credits. I can take this down if need be. Screenies will also follow.

Well, the guy has not been active on the Zandronum forums for over 3 years. He only registered to just post that one mod.

the way I seem to understand is you ask permission, if permission is not possible, like here, Credit is your best option

just curious, is the flamethrower supposed to kill a cyberdemon in like 3-4 seconds
nothing wrong with that, just wondering if intended, it does appear to be the BFG replacement so yeah

other than that it's pretty good

The mod was balanced with xeno-bashing in mind. I never tested it on the cyberdemon or mastermind so the flamethrower is a bit unbalanced. Truth be told, I think the mod as a whole is a bit unbalanced for vanilla play as it currently stands. So, it could use some tweaking. I could adjust the damage if people really wanted that. That is something that I could probably do with no problem.

yeah, give it a try, it's pretty powerful, never beenall that great at damage balance but maybe a little finadaling with the grenade and rocket damage and area of effect could be tweaked, they feel a tad small, but it's up to you ultimately

_sink's my SO, while I think he'd be fine with this, I'll ask him when he wakes up.
