Maybe have their spawns tweakable like the ammo, just because stronger enemies in lower numbers really encapsulates survival horror, and keeps the enemies feeling threatening for longer

Agreed, strong, durable enemies in smaller amounts is a common theme/gameplay element in survival horror, so if this mod had a monster addon, that'd be a great addition.

Chaingun replacement could be more machinegun-y, try the EM-2 instead of the L85.

Again, i am reading all your comments and taking notes people, but i can't answer them all at the moment.

Once again i apologize. Thanks for liking Nightshift and please keep it coming so i can post regular updates if i manage to get a good internet connection!

Hey, could you make the rifle a non-randomized spawn? The other weapons aren't, so I'm not sure why the rifle is. I tend to play with just pistol start because that just feels more survival horror-y to me, but I'm several levels deep playing with a monster pack with no weapon drops (SUAB monsters to be specific) and I still don't have a rifle because RNGeesus said no. It hurts. x.x

EDIT: I just noticed in the ammo spawn CVARs that you can make rifles always spawn. Granted, rifles are replaced with rifle mags once you have one so I feel like that'd make rifle ammo too abundant. I'd like to see two seperate CVARs in that case, if at all possible. In the mean time I'll just turn off rifle box spawns and hope it balances out. ^^

EDIT 2: Oh. That doesn't actually guarantee rifle spawns. Okay, yeah, disregard edit 1 then.

On a side note, can you make monster ammo drops be affected by the CVARs? I don't feel like they are and it makes ammo way too abundant when there's zombies around.

I'm not too surprised, there are quite a few Doom mods that have knives as a melee weapon and far fewer that have crowbars or batons as them.

So there's kind of a weird oversight with the shotgun; if your inventory is full of shotgun shells before you pick up the shotgun, you can't pick up the shotgun. :(

I still say an SMG or maybe some kind of PDW would be a good piece to use in place of the chaingun.

imo the rifle already fills that role pretty well.
i say precision rifle for very long distance combat or a magnum revolver because resident evil/parasite eve/survival horror in general.

Out of curiosity, is there any chance rather than one melee weapon, we could have a choice of multiple weapons from a mod setting/cvar? Then everyone could have what they want! You could even change up how each weapon handles to add some variety and meaning to melee weapon choice.

Maybe there is an opportunity to add some kind of M40A1 sniper rifle or something like that?
I mean, strong weapon, but only for 5 rounds in the mag (ready to deploy) and 10 rounds in the stock.
Backpack can grant maximum capacity of stock for 20-25 rounds.
Small amount of ammo just because this is very strong weapon.
Also chance to spawn this weapon itself and its ammo are very rare.

Thanks for noticing, The problem was a repeated check for max ammo in the first pickup. If that unleashes more bugs, please let me know!

In the meantime, i have uploaded a v1.2 build to fix this issue and add a few Things. Now there is a quick Tonfa key and a CVAR to equip the tonfa right out after the quick attack! Tonfa also animates better and strikes better. Have fun unleashing your rage ;)

EDIT: Check the addons section for two new addons! A texture replacer and a ambience soundpack that was originally planned for nightshift, but ended up separated because some players would not like the fact it adds to the weight.

Spoiler: Changelog

Hi
I wanted to ask if there is a way to get more shotgun ammo to drop? Ive played 2 wads already and noticed that i find barely any shotgun ammo. In my current monster setup its nearly impossible to survive with assault rifle alone (fairly frequent killbox rooms with elite enemies). If not, would you be so kind to add in an option to get shotgun ammo drops or pickups? Thanks, great mod so far :)
