Wolfman's Gameplay Modifications: Revamped (Major update!)

Postby thewolfman00001 » Fri May 07, 2021 12:03 pm













Welcome to Wolfman's Gameplay Modifications: Revamped! a balance mod that aims to make Doom a much more fun, engaging, and consistent experience across the board. I had a lot of time to think about the way I did things with the previous versions and I believe (IMHO) that this is the most refined version of my mod yet, and I hope that you have as much fun playing it as I had revisiting it! The goals of the project are as follows:

-Removal of damage RNG from weapons and monsters. This not only makes the weapons in your arsenal more reliable and effective, but it also makes your encounters with monsters much more consistent and deadly overall.

-Providing balance changes to weapons to improve their effectiveness, monsters to improve their lethality, and items to improve their viability.

-Introducing dynamic difficulty scaling to make the jump from difficulty to difficulty more influential and impactful, with monster damage being balanced around this scaling system and Hurt Me Plenty being used as a middle ground.

-Trimming the fat from my previous versions of the mod. There are many bits of custom content that I removed for the sole purpose of making the experience more focused and balanced overall, and I only kept in what could be fully integrated into the experience in a consistent fashion.

A full list of changes can be found below.

Changes and Credits:
Spoiler:


Run this mod on the latest version of GZDoom with Doom 2 or Final Doom. Don't use this mod with any other mods that change gameplay, or level packs that replace the weapons, monsters, or items modified here (unless they replace the WolfensteinSS or Commander Keen actors. I left them unmodified for compatibility with megawads that replace them with new enemies).

Once again, I hope all of you enjoy this mod and the changes and features that it brings. I hope that you all have a great day and that you remember that you are loved and valid! <3

Pretty fun mod. Can you fix the Revenant's "dead zone", the distance at which they are going for a melee attack and never shoot?

Hey there, thanks for the comment! The dead zone of the revenant isn't a bug or something to be fixed, it's a intentional design choice which adds a good layer of strategy to facing the revenant as a whole. If I were to reduce the size of the dead zone or remove it entirely, it could potentially make the revenant unbalanced or cause other types of problems. I hope you understand where I am coming from and I am glad that you are enjoying my mod <3

EDIT: I playtested reducing the dead zone of the revenant by 20% and it actually felt like a good change, so expect a update soon :D
