Ok, the star of this mod needs no introduction. Its the INCREDIBLE HULK!

FEATURES:
-HULK is your personal companion and bodyguard
-3 new Weapons form BannerLabs
-New ammo: gamma
-New PowerUps
-New Enemies
-Terraforming (disabled by default)

VIDEO:

Skill: Nightmare
Terraforming: No limit


HULK
00hulkBFG.png
-Equipped with a Gammablaster from BannerLabs he will blast through hordes of enemies like butter
-HULKs aura will give you health and gamma (limited range, so stay close to him).
HULKs aura also protects you from incoming damage.
Aura is only active when he is infight.

WEAPONS:
-Gammalauncher (Upgraded Rocketlauncher)
Launches big gamma shards. On impact, a gamma ball is spawned emitting gammarays contaminating enemies and killing them slowly.
-GammaRifle (Upgraded PlasmaRifle)
Throwing balls of gamma @ your enemies
-GammaRailgun
Bruce Banner hisself invented this beast of a weapon. Because a single ray is not enought, this evil thing is a DOUBLE railgun!
It is your starting weapon and can easily carry you through whole episodes.
-Gammafists
Let enemies feel the pure gamma power and blast them away with your fists.

Here is GAMMA:
-Gamma rocks (spread all over the map)
-HULKS aura (stay close)
-Gammaballs: lethal for enemies but good for you
-Killing enemies will give you some gamma per kill
-Random drops: Most enemies will drop gamma now, even if they dropped nothing or always the same item in vanilla DOOM.

New Enemy: GammaBlob
This one is really annoying. At first it does nothing and is very slow. But give it some and will start resurrecting enemies and hunt you. If it gets you, it will explode for a ton of damage. So avoid that.
If terraforming is enabled it will also alter the level and convert it step by step into a mess of toxic pools.

New Powerup: GammaOrb grants GammaShield

This thingy will protect you once against death. But you need to have 100 gamma in your inventory!

FAQ:
-Can HULK die?
->Technically yes, but the only force on earth which is able to kill him is YOU. Its not easy and crazy but doable.
-Can HULK kill me?
No. Thanks to BannerLabs immunization against radiation you are immune against gamma rays.
-Where is HULK?
Kill some enemies and he will spawn
-Terraforming doesnt work
Enable it in "MOD Options". Its disabled per default.
-Does it work with brutal doom?
Brutal what? :o

About:
I love MBF-like mods and I can remeber playing Cujo for Quake to death back in the days. But I always missed some more interactivity. A companion is nice, but if his only power is blasting away enemies: kinda boring. HBF focuses heavily on your companion. He can give you buffs, heal, resources AND blows away enemies xD

Release INFO:
This Update 1!
My prefered settings are:
-Oblige map with max enemies
-Skill: Nightmare
-Terraforming: unlimited

-Rocketlauncher: AltFire: Homing missile.
-GammaRailGun fixed: AltFire uses ammo now
TERRAFORMING

-gray monster: rock solid. takes no damage after resurrection (only for a few seconds). Punch it away with gamma powered fist.

About the GammaBobs:
Blobs are randomly dropped by enemies. They are slow but if they catch you they will explode and deal a lot of damage.
The second ability is resurrecting dead enemies. After resurrection they are harder to kill, because: More HP and reflective to missiles.
If you enabled Terraforming in the mod settings, it will get even worse...

About Terraforming:
You can enable it in the options menu. It is disabled by default.
The green gammablobs can resurrect enemies. These resurrected foes will terraform the sector they are in. (So killing blobs and green enemies QUICKLY is the way to go!)
What is "terraforming" in HBF?
-sector will be lowered by 8 units
-texture will be changed to nukage
-damage is set.
if you set terraforming to "no limits" the sector can be lowered multiple times. That means your level will totally break sometimes and you will have to rocketjump or use some barrels to cross the gaps.

Sound like fun?
Yeah. This adds pressure to your gameplay because the longer you wait, the harder it will get to complete the level. HULKs aura makes you virtually invulnerable so that you actually have all the time in the world. But with TF enabled the map gets slowly destroyed and you have to hurry up!

A big gap:

About the indicators:

Screenshot from the video @ 4:10:
Gammashield kicked in for 100 gamma gave me 200 HP and 200 armor.
Now, I got no more gammashield and my gamma is low: both indicators turned red.

A nice and shiny gammaorb:

Oh yeah. I would love to but...I dont have the skills and time to create a model from scratch. My primary source Quake 3 models from lonebullet.com.
After a quick search I found Thor, Spiderman and Captain America but who needs other avengers? Because:

Terraforming totally destroyed this level. Use rocket jumping to get to the exit!

Mod looks cool fun and interesting but this part is preventing me from trying it:
Warning: Can freeze GZDoom. If you dont know an "elegant" way to handle a frozen app: Dont try it.
I'm so allergic to lag and crashes in games that I avoid any that do these at all costs. Stability and solid performance at any situation is super important to me.

No problem.
a) I warned you
b) noone forces you to try it
c) just out of curiousity: How can you play with console open?
d) Update 1 is out. Issues fixed

UPDATE 1 IS OUT! (see 1. post)

Here are my settings for Oblige if you want to create your own maps. I'm not really planning to make any maps for this mod, there are a quazillion maps out there that work fine and the generated maps are quite good.

I think hordes of monsters, large areas and UV is the sweet spot for this mod.
Have phun!
