Would also make it slightly more strategic with having to go behind cover to heal instead of just mashing the "use inventory" button.

I kinda like the idea of having an option to make the healing not be instant, though perhaps rather than being immobile while healing, like in say, Left 4 Dead or something like that, maybe something more like how the medkits work in Soldier Z, where you heal over time when you use a medkit, but stop getting healed if you move too quickly.

Might I suggest having zombies and imps a unique burning death state like The Thing mod? That'd spice things up real well.

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"


Copy over NS-Player.txt from the base mod to your mod, or vice-versa?

Hey bro about that ammo issue
could you maybe make shotgun normal shotgun ammo but tune it a bit down damage wise?
I have played this mod with 3 different wads and dont find any ammo, playing with rifle only gets really stale really fast.
Thank you, sorry for bothering you

Mod's feeling pretty good so far! I think I agree that I'd like to see more weapons, the ones you've got now feel pretty good. Maybe weapon variants? Is it possible to make the pistols/rifles etc. a bit more random? Maybe one run you start with the 220, another with an M1911, another with a Glock, etc. That might be a good way to keep the overall weapon count still "low," but have some anticipation for finding other weapons and exploring. So you've got 2-3 weapons per slot with different stats (could try and stick to same caliber weapons too if you want consistency, i.e. a Beretta, Glock and 220, L85 and M16, etc.) but can only carry one per slot. That's probably a lot of work, but it might help add variety while staying with the lower, more effective weapon style.

If i can do it without replacing vanilla monsters and keep the compatibility, that would be great!

Since the Tonfa will become an add on, i don't see why i should not add more guns!

YukesVonFaust, my partner in arms and mods was dying to see a lever action rifle to fit the survival theme. This is the chance!

Yeah, having some extra weapons, whether as additions to the roster, additions to a randomized pool, or something the player chooses, would be nice.

Hey Cosmo, i started to work on a monster pack for your mod but recently i started to work on other mods so i canot work on the monster pack for now, maybe you could continue with this

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9sqyu44qj4dyu1n/Nightshift%20Monsterpack.pk3?dl=0

This simply replaces the Zombieman and the Shotgunguy with a slow moving but though zombie and marine corpses and also replaces the imp with ambience sounds

Can I suggest hidden secret OP weapons and weapon upgrades?

Something like Silent hill and Resident Evil series of 1,2 and 3 did,
with the golden or silver pipe, aka the Axe, that does double the damage.
A hyper-blaster/arcade like gun, with inf ammo.
and a Katana does the same damage like the basic Axe but it swinging speed is twice as fast
A Colt S.A.A.

And a Scope for the pistol, and a shotgun upgrade addon.

But these weapons and upgrades spawn rate would be very low and random to get.

just ideas.

I am not going to lie, i've shown a concept of a scope upgrade to the L85A2 in the Discord server, and people seemed to like it, actually.

I don't think i would mind expanding the capabilities of the current arsenal (adding laser sights, silencers, scopes/whatever comes to mind, and, more important than anything, IF they are avaiable somehow, as i am not talented enough to make those sprites, they're the fruition of other great guys work). My only holdback is how to implement them. Randomspawners are sheer luck and not every player will get to experience the same fun as if they could actually pull a way to drop them.

I am open to suggestions though. =)
