[Deprecated] Heretic COTIS Visual Enhancement Mod V0.3

Postby Expect No Mercy » Sun May 06, 2012 1:49 am

24/06/2017: This mod has been deprecated. New mod can be found here.

Hi,

this is my first Post here, but I've visiting this board for years. I play Doom, Heretic and Hexen since they came out in the 90s, and played around with some tools like DCK 1.1 since the middle of the 90s. But I've never released something.

So this is my first mod for GZDoom Heretic. Originally a part of my "Course Of The Inner Sanctum" (COTIS) Map project, I decided to release it as a standalone Mod for using it with every vanilla Heretic Mod. The Idea was to create better effects for Heretic while keeping the original look. Why Heretic? Cause everyone has done it before for Doom and Hexen too, but not for Heretic. So I made it. :wink:

So here is the second Release of:

Heretic COTIS Visual Enhancement Mod

It has new Fire effects, GLdefs, and the biggest use of Brightmaps ever (I think...).

I really like the fire braziers. The way the smoke has been done almost give them a heat shimmer kind of look.

The additive dyn lights for the torches look like shit, using sector lights or standard dynamic lights might be worth a look

I do think so too, but I think the core of the flames have got a excessive brightness...

looking very good, and they are right, torch flames are the best and less-laggy than i thought!

except some of projectiles have no decals at all somehow and ethereal crossbow's projectiles have only one trails.
