Nightshift v2.1 (01/12/20) Stable changes

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.

Oh yeah, congrats on the coverage by Mr. Icarus!

If you're interested in expanding the fog option, here's a mod for it I previously used. Have a look if you'd like. (It's not mine, obviously).
https://www.moddb.com/mods/brutal-doom/ ... og-effects

It lets you choose presets for the coloured fog or even make your own colour settings via RGB. I used those to make my fog a little more "dirty", as opposed to pure white fog, which seems too "clean" for horror atmosphere.

Oh, and ditto for Captain J's idea for a power melee attack.

Modify... As long as you asked for a permission(and approved by the author), then it'll fine. But i'd make it addon Instead of Standalone if i were you, especially if you're going to upload it! It's nice lighter and safer than having the latter.

I can understand that.

I seem to have permission.

And I also have a test map for it.

If anyone's interested or wants to have some laughs, here's me sucking at playing Nighshift with Midwich School 5to2. But be warned: it's a long ass watch. Commentary in Polish.
Spoiler:
I haven't encountered any bugs so far. And I have to say: Nightshift really sells the idea of a survival horror in Doom. And after mixing in the L4D monsters? Hooooo boy. The tension got to me on more than one occasion :mrgreen:

Great work!

Thanks a lot Adam! I will download it as soon as i get on a PC. In the meantime, could you provide us a changelog? Thanks in advance for caring about the mod!

@YebuDoom: One thing i noticed during the videos is that you wanted to kill the zombies from long distances and had troubles with the grenades. Don't forget you can hold the grenade button to throw it even further, and if by any chance you want to cancel the grenade throw, change weapons and release the grenade key (or else it'll start again).

;)

No, thank YOU! :D And yes, the UC vid! There will be more of those. Ultra Crispy, Nightshift and the Kriegslands are my favourite mods made by you. And that's not to say I don't like the rest of them. Quality content for sure.

Haha, yeah. I gotta get a feel for doing it right. Thank you!

Great to read this during the morning =)

BTW guys, thanks to ICARUS, the mod got a little more interest, so some people suggested a few things on his comments, some users contacted me about game breaking bugs, our friends Jarewill and YukesVonFaust contributed with awesome pieces of code, and i do believe i might upload Nightshift v1.7 by this week if possible, so keep tuned. =)
