[Zscript] Physiccal monsters mutations [4/7] ver 0.0.2

Post by Apeirogon »

Couple of simple little mods which change a little monster behavior when damaged.

To use it you must download base file
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mX2LYi ... HFN6w/view
and load it before any other mod.
Now you can load all mods in the same time, choose what kind of mutation have greater chance to appears, and choose chance of appearing mutations at all.

First, not by value, fractal mutation simple mod which divide one killed monster on several monsters of the same type, but with smaller size and damage output, which than can be shoot or stomped. Just like old Fractal Doom(LTM, All right reserved) mod, but more customable, since you can setup how much monsters "child" can be spawned and how much times it can be splitted from options menu.
Work with all custom monster mods. In case of brutal doom and similar mods, which use hitboxes, it can glitch.

Must work with all gzdoom version higher than 2.4, but last stable version of gzdoom is preferable.

This all looks like this

Second, size mutation AKA light version of fractal mutation.
Simple as...I dont know much of english idioms, so...piece of cake????? It just change monster size, height and radius, the more damage its takes, while also decreasing amount of damage such monster can inflict.
You can customize limit of how small it can be from menu. Or I dont create such possibility...

Third, phase mutations.
Maybe one of the most interesting. Each monster throw around self bunch of its afterimages, which can make you try to hit such enemy a little bit...TRICKY, hehe.
May cause motion sickness!!! Consult with your doctor before use!!!

Number which go after three, transparent mutation.
Force monster to lose value in its alpha channel together with its health, which looks like a monster become more and more transparent the closer it come to death.
You can also set how transparent monster can be, to not lose it from crosshair.

Update it a little bit and add some more mods.
Mostly for finding bugs, so if someone interested in this bizarre, half made, mods and while playing with it find a bug, post it here.

This is a fun set of mutators! I really like the effect of the after image mutator.
Have you thought about making one where monster speed increases as health drops?

Yes, I have an idea of something like this, monster which have a LOT of health and veeeeeeeeeeery slow at max health and inflict ridiculous damage, but become more and more faster and deadlier the less health he has left.
