So, what's this?

Hellrider is a Work in Progress gameplay enhancement mod that puts you in the shoes of Rachel "Hellrider" Williams, an angry lady who has a certain affinity with firearms in general.




Review by the Doom man Icarus



Make sure to bind the needed controls!
The mod focus mostly on the weapons and their mechanics, but Rachel can also perform some advanced movement, such as sliding, double jumping, and wall latching, so make sure to check the "Customize Controls section" before playing.

Classes and weapons:
Spoiler: Starting weapons


Gameplay!
Spoiler: More videos!


Worth mentioning!
The mod requirest at least GZDoom 4.5.0, and will NOT run in LZDoom for now as it lacks the A_RotateOverlay function.
There are no new monsters for now, since it's a w.i.p mod. Feel free to use your favorite monster pack, use Vanilla monsters, or grab one here
Some mechanics I'm planning haven't been implemented yet, so, I'm sorry if the mod feels bland for now, but take note that this is the 0.6 version, I'm working on it, okay?

Without any further ado...

Last but not least, Credits!
Spoiler: Awesome people

Said it before and will say it now: This is far more solid and fluid than Slayer's Rampage, because it has way more freedom to wander between ideas. PM me whenever needed.

P.S.: some pickups and ammos need small scale tweaks, go for some vanilla pickups as a comparison. Other than that, this is wonderful.

The zoomed fire of the Warhead Launcher doesn't use ammo.

It should definitely need more polish though, but considering this is an early release, it's alright. But otherwise, the mod is pretty good.

I'm glad to know that, thank you

Copy that, i'll try to scale them correctly, then again, thank you for providing the ammo pickup sprites, they look really good in game

Got it, thanks for reporting

Thank you, would you please explain a bit more, like, where it needs to be polished? i'd really like to improve the mod as much as possible, but i need to know where to start

Map is Warzone (map 14) from Hell on Earth Starter Pack (Basically a earlier version of Eday)
Again, would you please point where the mod needs to be fixed/improved, so i can work on it? thanks!

Alright, my two cents: I am going to separate this into two sections: Should be changed and Stylistic Suggestions.

Should be Changed:

Something that I feel SHOULD be changed should be the muzzle flash sprites on the plasma gun replacement. If one is using a crosshair, which I do, the flashes after the fire rate ramps up are almost impossible to get a peripheral vision on enemies when one is focusing on the immediate left and right on the crosshair. My suggestion would be to slow down the fire rate of this weapon, shrink down the muzzle flash sprites, and get rid of the chaingun-like start up for the fire rate of the plasma gun, as burst firing to compensate for these muzzle flashes would be annoying due to the changes in fire rate speed.

Stylistic Suggestions:

The way this mod feels in execution in my book should have more weapons that do ADS. If there are controls for all weapons for ADS, please inform me. Another suggestion would be the option to remove reloads if someone wanted to play slaughterwads as reloading with this mod makes these maps harder to go through.

Do you have a non-google drive link? The mod looks fun!

I should adress a save file error: Half of the time I load up a save file, its normal. The other time I began to have an error, can you fix it?

Oh my God. This is great! Definitely this mod is a keeper. The feeling when firing the guns is comparable to Doom Incarnate or Trailblazer, and that is a compliment in my book.

Questions:
1. Why is the H&K held in such a weird way? I actually prefer the DEagle just because of this.

Requests/Suggestions:
1. An option to turn off/scale the weapon recoil would be great. It's weird that all the guns have recoil, but the minigun doesn't.
2. Granades would be sweet, but you're already on it.
3. The HUD is simplistic and would benefit from pimping it, adding more ammo info and making it more "tech". Make a patch for NCHud and it will suffice lol
4. More iron sights on the guns, please ^^ The shotguns, the pistols, the SMG, the plasma.
5. The plasma rifle fires (or seems to fire) all over the place. Could be more concentrated, at least visually.
6. An alt-fire for the SSG with firing just one barrel at the time would be cool.
7. I think that integrating Nashgore is not necessary. Don't get me wrong, I love Nashgore, I use it with most things. But let people decide which gore system to use with HR, i.e. when someone prefers Bolognese or Droplets. If anything, integrate Nash's Less Slippery Movement.
8. I think I would move the Barrett to slot 5, but maybe that's just me.
9. I would make the shrapnel from the rocket launcher and the BFG equivalent not hurt the player.
10. Spent casings sounds! ^^

But the mod is great even now! I love that the slide move is also an attack. Thank you for your work and keep it up! <3

EDIT:
There's this mod called Hell Raider: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=55742
That one and yours may get confused with. Do with this what you will ^^

EDIT 2:
The hatchet doesn't leave any hit marks on walls etc. Maybe you could add them.
Vanilla barrel explosions are too weak for this mod lol. Pimp them please! xD

Did you even read the OP? It's based on a real life shooting style called "Center Axis Relock". It's the signature style of John Wick, from the movies of the same name, if you need a reference.
