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 :)


Hi there!

Thanks for downloading the mod. All ammo spawns can be toggled on the "Extras" menu! Shotgun shells replace Doom cell spots,and you can choose between "Always", "Frequently", "Sometimes", "Rarely" or "Never".

Unless you mean the quantity to drop, like, more than 4 or 12 shells per pickup. This is not toggleable (not now at least :p).

Hey!
Thank you for your quick reply. I already messed with the settings, its just that the wads Im playing seem to have no cells which leads me to having no ammo for the shotgun. My idea was maybe being able to replace ammo with anything you want. Example: instead of replacing cell ammo with shotgun ammo, replace pistol ammo with shotgun ammo etc. Thanks for your time!

I'm really hoping that Icarus does an episode of Doom Mod Madness on this, because your mod seriously deserves the attention.

Thanks! I am not going to bother him (mainly because he probably has a lot of mods to review too), but i would indeed love to see him trying to give it a go.

On a side note: I accidentally bugged the tonfa second attack frame. This is fixed for the next update as well as a small combo system is also ready. :wink:

I've made an addon for this, ported the weapon inertia system that i made for my still-WIP mod.

It will need updating whenever the player actor code is changed, but it's very straightforward, just copy over the NS-Player.txt file and change "StrifePlayer" to "NSInertiaPlayerBase" and "NSPlayer" to "NSInertiaPlayer"

Would a optional dog companion work for this mod?
hope i'm not being off topic, even tho a few horror games
you do get a dog companion.
like Rule of Rose, Haunting grounds and the 2019 Blair witch video game.

I guess it depends on the map.
and it just a idea maybe using the brutal friends mod ai
able to tell the dog to stay or follow you,
and maybe a whistle key command to follow you again, if you told the dog to stay and they're in another far location on the map,
and also maybe the whistle key command will also teleport the dog behind the player, so they're not in the way of doors.

and maybe a Dog health edit option would be good too.
like set the dog's health to 500 to 99999 or to invincible.

And maybe a optional choice of dog breed types to start with

Theres also the Cabin 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0sB2lLsA18
but i have no clue if it fully compatible for this Nightshift, I have to try it later.

Another light source item that would be good is flares
For those dark stages and maybe a optional limited flash light that needs batteries?

https://www.realm667.com/index.php/en/i ... 001-flares
but this wad might need to be edited as it don't give that much light.

just throwing ideas.

some textures that might fit for this mod

Hey there guys, here comes another update thing!

- This time, the tonfa and the kick can do a small combo! Remember, K+T+T ;)
- Grenades are consistent and can have their fuse customized! Choose them to blowup with one, two, three seconds or right after landing!
- New submenu for other mods you probably have around your autoload!
- New sounds for ammo pickups, weapon wieldings and tonfa hits, better elevator stop sound and aesthetical changes and fixes you didn't even knew you needed!

EVERYTHING CAN BE DOWNLOADED IF YOU ENTER THIS LINK!

Have fun and keep on voting! If you really like the Tonfa and you want it to become the standard weapon, call more friends to vote!!! Shout the mod all around!

Spoiler: changelog

Small idea:
Maybe make the "shaky aim" (don't know how else to call it) more intense with how much health the player has?

For example: at ~100% health, the shakiness is barely noticeable, but at very low health it will be hard to aim.

And maybe make the run speed linked to player's health too, aside Strife's RunHealth property.
The less health, the slower the player is.

This could add more ways to picking battles: would you heal now and waste about 5 health points from the medikit, but keep your speed and aim at a good level, or wait until you really need to heal?

Talking about healing, maybe make it also not instant? A small animation could play and stop/slow down the player while they are healing.
Would also make it slightly more strategic with having to go behind cover to heal instead of just mashing the "use inventory" button.

But that's all just suggestions, there's no need to include any of them. (but it would be nice, just add CVars to toggle them for people who would prefer it this way)
This is a really fun mod to play with, however I miss the weapon condition / breaking from Factotum.
