Fantastic start, man.

I realize it's probably already on the list, but some vertical slashes will help it feel less like it's just being swung back and forth.

Actually, by using actual models, it's much cheaper than using voxels. Models cannot be toggled off unfortunately. So, that's why I'm replacing all voxels with actual models.

I have no intention of using actual sprites made by anyone. I worked very hard to rip these, they're here to stay. You have no idea how hard it was to get all this into the state it is now.

There's no vertical slashes in Doom Eternal except for glory killing. More often than not, you'll want horizontal slashes because that's where most of the monsters will be - off to your left and right.

I mean, tactically yes, but it looks really silly just going back and forth.

I don't mean strictly vertical by the way, just something off of horizontal.

I will play with the offsets so they're not so directly side to side. No guarantees. If it doesn't work out, then that's all that can happen since the animations only do that.

Not really care about sword in the slightest and how it will turn out, I am more worried if the 5:4 support is coming up. I'm still big fan of your mod. :P

Well, you've been missing out on the screenshots about the HUD overhaul on Discord.

Alpha 8.6 has been released. As usual, you can find all changes in the changelog, including installation instructions on the front page.

Have fun with the Crucible Blade!

Nice, do you plan to update the weapon sprites in the future to match Doom 2016 or Eternal, similar to D4T?

The problem with that is aside from sgt.shivers set of sprites is no one made them yet. and sgt.shivers are centered as well.

Furthermore, it has to be in pieces in order for the shaders and the red to not be affected by lights.

This is likely to be the final edition of the Crucible's rendering because working on this was exhausting.

This is not completely true. There are rudamentary, key word: rudamentary, sprites for DE used for Embers of Armageddon. This is a recent random gameplay video featuring the mod and its sprites. Its not finished tho. The weapon attachments need sprites.

Thanks but no. Chroma Keying can be useful, but the lighting here and the blue tint prevents it from having neutrality, like the player's supposed to be in a room with a blue light that doesn't exist since its on there all the time.

So I'll be ripping it with Blender instead where I have succinct control of everything.

Nope. I spent several weeks to a month building up this weapon. It's composed of seven different pieces all put together by the engine. It's how the blade has a shader effect working on it while the rest of the weapon is by itself, and furthermore, the red glow actually changes based on different lighting - like a real additive glow effect.

Oops, what I meant to say is, do you have plans for the other weapons' sprites (not the crucible blade). Sorry if I didn't clarify that.
