Rampancy is a robot-themed monsterpack for GZDoom, designed for maximum compatibility with weapon mods and mapsets.
Special thanks to Cherno for their amazing robot model-to-sprite conversions, without which this mod wouldn't exist.

    -= DESCRIPTION =-
An AI supercomputer becomes sentient and achieves rampancy, breaking free of human control and taking control over a huge amount of robotic military forces. You must fight your way through the mechanical legions, reach the AI's core, and destroy it before it is too late!

    There are no hitscan attacks, all bullets from robots are projectiles.
    There is no infighting at all, but all enemies can injure each other no matter their type.
    Damage is semi-static. All damage varies by 2, giving values like 13-17 damage.
    Projectiles are faster than vanilla Doom, but do far less damage due to low values and minimal randomization.
    Robots that fire physical projectiles have limited ammo, exhausting that ammo will force them to either rely on other attacks or power down.
    Enemies set to Ambush in maps will have different behaviour, usually lying in wait ready to attack.
    Many menu options to customize things like item drops or cosmetic options.
    A difficulty option in addition to normal Doom skill levels, which gives robots more dangerous behaviour or abilities.

Well, this is a total surprise, seems to work pretty nicely with everything I've thrown at it. I highly recommend this in combination with map sets like Marswar and Equinox that are heavy on tech bases.

I'm looking forward to trying this. Sci-fi/tech themes have always appealed more to me than the hellish stuff.

Says it's Guncaster compatible; how did you pull that off? I thought stuff found in that mod made it monster-mod-unfriendly.

I've done a fair amount of playtesting on this as Yholl developed this, I'm so happy to see the full release.
Also it seems to play just fine with Combined_Arms right now.

Very good!

There are perspective sprites for the Deus Ex Security Bot available, btw.

Darm, I wish I knew about those before I did the brightmaps on the old one.

Literally the same way DRLA's monsters do, it's actually based on the same thing. You just gotta fill in all the stuff it needs, that's all, there's nothing special to it.

Maybe I'll try and auto-generate brightmaps directly in max sometime this week.

Woah, that'd be absolutely massively helpful if you do, the sheer amount of frames on most robots just prevents me from doing it manually. I only barely got away with it on the Security Bot.

There could be more flying bots. Any ideas? :) I might spritify the drone from Malice for Quake. It has a cool design :)
