But don't worry, i'll fix that in a minute. Thanks for playing dude!


Meh, no biggie, might start up another run of Nightshift once I get done with Retribution with the new version-minus the RL monster pack. Had to throw in the towel after I reached one of the levels because the monsters on it left it nigh unplayable.

Hey, my dudes!

During the last weeks i've been on hiatus from modding, as i stated somewhere in the Spawn thread. But... i've never stopped turning my pc on and using GIMP and SLADE. Whoever follows the ZDoom Discord knows i post things there all the time. But one of those things i had stopped was the Nightshift next update.

So i decided to slowly take it and start changing things. The game is a little bit harder and the aesthetical part changed a bit. I hope you don't find this worse than before.

Click here to download the 2.0 version of Nightshift.

Want to know the changelog? Not a lot changed, but many voxels are brand new, the armor is now called "Sanity" (just a resin for now, unless i can do something with it, really), new sounds, new sprites, less ammo, fixed some shotgun bugs... anyway, have fun!

Feedback is appreciated ;)

Some suggestions:

- Small objects like Casings would cause a large splash and it looks quite comical.

- I would like to see even more, and randomized ambient musics in the game. All i hear is just only one looping.

- And i forgot or something but, how can i pickup the health spray? My health was full and i thought i could pick up one and use it anytime i want, but i can't.

Have you check the options values ? (Inventory/Instantly Activated)
Also, the maximum amount of health spray (Med Pak S) we can pick up in the inventory is 5.

Sorry for making you download again, but i actually left some oversights.

This update is not mandatory, but it would be cool to have, since this is kinda stable now.

I fixed two voxels and removed the splash from casings, as requested by Captain J.

Have fun my dudes. ;)

Re: Nightshift v2.0b (18/11/20) Hotfix!

Nice updates! To be honest, I kind of liked just having armor more, it made more sense than sanity which doesn't really impact gameplay by losing it, other than losing that damage reduction.

I know your concern, since it makes sense to absorb damage with armor impact, but i thought this "sanity" thing could fit the theme better. Not only that, the resources used came straight from Kriegsland II, and i was feeling that armor in Nightshift couldn't be that standard.

But if i ever manage to work this deeper, i want sanity to affect the gameplay somehow, such as aim factor, or anything else that might help or distract the player. =)

Yeah, I think for me it's just less satisfying right now then finding some actual armor to put on.

I only have one bug to report, armor/sanity can always be picked up, even when over the threshold one such item provides.

Thanks for noticing, friend. Probably the cigarrettes and whiskey are inheriting from something like a bonus armor. I will take a look at it.

Hey there guys!

After a little while, i've done a few changes to Nightshift. These are some stable changes, as the title suggest. More aesthetic than anything, but some are QoL and some are more personal than anything. The font was reworked to differentiate upper and lower cases, GLDEFS were added to bullet puffs, some new sounds for weapons, some adjustments on the sprites, pistol has a 10+1 system, some extra animations and so on and on. You can check the changelog if you're curious:

Nice update! It's always nice to have that +1 bullet in the chamber in mods, adds a little touch of realism.

Really love this mod! Goes well with a zombie monster set like the RE or L4D one.

About the only thing missing is some kind of magnum weapon to round out the roster.

Hi! Thanks for liking this mod. I like games with lots of weapons, but i think that adding more in Nightshift would take it out of the scope. But, if you wish to try a survival mod with a similar, although not so atmospheric premise, Nightmare Logic might fit your interests.

Enjoy! ;)
