Oh my, this is some feedback, thank you for it!nepetafan33 wrote:i like the mod, played a little of it in dump 3 and i've been writing my thoughts about it down in a notepad file
haven't played the latest version yet, so everything here is from when it was v1.01
mainly been playing through dump 3 on Ultra Violence with this mod
also i don't know what all of the guns and armor are called so
random rambling thoughts i had while playing:
1. ice gun + green chaingun thing are too similar in appearance (don't know if just beta placeholders)
2. personal issue: fullscreen flashing bright colors is super annoying and hurts my eyes since i'm kind of senstitive to it (examples: the blue suit melee attack, gold suit BFG attack, during kamui rampage)
2b. addendum: chaingun replacement alt-fire spawns too close to the player for my taste (which also kind of causes this effect)
3. shotgun normal alt fire seems really useless?
4. void sphere is shit compared to plasma gun's alt fire, really bad when you're expecting a BFG-like weapon but it's nothing like it (unless you have the swimsuit but success in maps shouldn't be based on if you're lucky enough to get a swimsuit pickup)[actually when you have the swimsuit it seems insanely fucking OP to just spam the alt-fire]
4b. it should just work like a normal bfg tbh, and have the other bfg weapon be like an upgrade or something
4c. or the alt fire on it should at least take armor health instead of completely destroying it, (you use it once to clear a group of slaughtermap dudes but then there's still more to kill and you have no armor :\)
4d. after messing around in a slaughtermap with it (SCYTHE map26) i realized you can still shoot it at full speed even with no armor on, i guess that's alright but it's still kind of shitty? what if i run out of ammo for it and there's no other armor pickups around: i'm completely fucked since everything is slower while you're naked
5. lights dimming during void sphere attack is annoying
there should probably just be an option to turn these screen effects off tbh
6. smart grenade launcher should just cycle between overcharged and normal grenades (since every other setting doesn't seem as useful and clutters the menu), also not being able to hold down mouse1 to constantly fire it is annoying
7. being able to kill yourself with the bfg (and the void sphere) is kind of dumb, i'll just be running trying to dodge shit and i'll get caught in my own BFG blasts or i'll accidentally shoot the void sphere right in the face of a dude
8. what are the rates on the alternate weapon spawns? it seems like i never get the yellow super shotgun, and the rusty grenade launcher never spawned for me
also the spawns are kind of annoying when you're expecting to find a certain weapon but you end up finding another (which might be a shittier version of what you were looking for (VOID SPHERE))
9. gun praise:
the plasma gun is really good, probably maybe even too good (alt fire)
the alt fire on the smart grenade launcher is also really good, especially with the schoolgirl outfit (maybe even also too good?)
the ice gun seems good enough, the alt fire is nice but maybe the normal shot is a little weak?
10. i haven't really had a problem about the armor system to write down, now that i think about it, so i'd like to think that it's fine? only issues i could have with it are kind of nitpicky and maybe kind of antithesis to the design of the mod (too little health while naked, not having an item/pickup to give backup armor when you run out)
meta info toggle (monsters killed/items/etc.) on the HUD would be nice
suggestion that i know would take a lot of work:
being able to combine outfits would be super cool
1. I know, but I havent found better looking guns, Ive been considering editing the pick up sprites atleast a little.
2. I'm putting a disable switch for those in the next patch
2b not much I can do for that Im afraid.
3. Nah, its more of utility
4. Void sphere and the plasma have gotten rebalances, tho the void alt fire is bit too penalizing, you aint the only one who's said that, so that is gonna get changed aswell.
7. This is an oversight on the void spheres part, for the BFG's part it depends which mode is being used, some of the harsher fires like fire bikini and cyber armor are intentional due of their giga effect.
8. 20% for rusty launcher, 33% for scrapper. The BFG is its own weapon and not alternative
9. \o/ Ice gun is slightly weaker than ssg variants but it freezes foes which makes it anti archvile utility
10. You can have back up armor if you have tailoring kit and tailor sphere
