SURVIVAL HORROR DOOM

Welcome to my first original mod!

This is a mod that de-emphasizes combat and focuses on making the player feel helpless. I will continue to update it as I learn more!

Here is a list of what it features so far:
  • Aim with the pistol for increased accuracy, increased weapon damage (and removal of damage randomness), and decreased rate of fire!
  • The Shotgun fires slower, but packs quite a wallop at close range. It fires a lot of pellets (24 to be exact, and the Double Barrel fires 48)!
  • Zombies can be incapacitated to allow you a chance to flee!
  • A focus on non-lethality! Push your enemies away and then run to live another day!
  • Pick up Medikits and Stimpacks, and use them to heal yourself over time!
  • Your former comrades slumber. Or do they? Smash their corpses into pulp, just to be safe!
  • Everybody loves extra weapons: Grenades, a trusty lead pipe, and even a Rifle!
  • Soul-crushing (but fair) difficulty!
  • Cyberdemons that have missiles that seek you out! The terror!
  • Extra corpse decorations for mood setting!

I literally played this a few hours ago and it got updated.
The only issue I have with this at the moment is that the pistol is rather weak, but I assume it's the intention.
But I really like the fact that enemies can play dead.
And the pistol sight sprite (which feels weird to use in doom) looks really goofy and I kinda like how round it becomes.

I am glad you like it. Make sure you use the fists to push enemies away and also to push them into walls to potentially knock them down!

ALPHA 0.4
  • Pistol now has a physical bullet that travels and has drop when you aim.
  • Plasma Rifle is now the Plasma Emitter; it will fire a single shot before cooling down. Luckily it rips through multiple targets at once.
  • Rocket Launcher deals more damage on the inside, and less damage on the outside, and is overall more effective in splash damage.
  • Arachnotrons now move and shoot, but will no longer refire.
  • Fist sprites and animations improved.
  • Rifle damage improved.
  • Player movement slower.
  • Zombie pain chance increased, zombie incapacitation chance decreased.

Nice job taterz!

Are you willing to accept any sprite collab with this?

A little bug I found.
Using the new pistol's altfire will change the sprite to the fist after shoving and then fire the pistol after a moment.
I assume there's a goto missing after the shove, but I haven't yet looked at the code.

Edit: Checked the code and the issue is here:

Also using the disc of repulsion effect for shoving makes it so you shove in 360 degrees, so you can shove everything behind you as well as in front of you.

Hotfixed!

I also made the Rifle fire physical bullets like the aimed Pistol; the bullets are .308 and go through multiple targets!

Any community support or insight from people who are more experienced than I am is appreciated. My Discord information is public and available on the right-hand side, below my profile picture.

One thing I am currently trying to maintain is a focus on the golden rules of:
A. Doom art style focus. Nothing that is outside the visual consistency of what Tom Hall or John Romero would want.
B. The player should feel helpless. Either speedrun that shit or try to fight and push your way through. Never expect to be able to survive, never expect to be able to get 100% Kills and Secrets. Not all of your favorite mapsets will be playable with this mod.

ALPHA 0.7
  • Footsteps for basic enemies.
  • A new melee weapon thanks to GAA1992! The Pipe joins Doomguy's close range arsenal. You will find it in place of the Chainsaw on occasion.

The Pipe is affected by Berserk btw.
