~2.9.1 - bug fixes - Fixed issue where bundle drops count towards the items tally. - Fixed Blue Champion Fireball vm abort (for real this time) - Fixed very minor issue where Hybrid Champions blood colour would not change. - Replaced level.time modulo operation in baseclass with a custom variable instead - instead of dividing level.time which can get very large (and very slow) a custom integer has been added which increments every tic, and is reset to 0 every time the tick effect is called. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.9~ Bundle Tweaks - Tweaked Item bundles weighting & drops: - In general: - Monsters drop double items when gibbed. - Drops are increased based on DamageFactor & DamageMultiply values - Doom: - Now have a chance to drop 2 clips & 1 shell pickup per tier. - Heretic: - Now drop custom armour bonuses. - Hexen: - Health pickups are dropped from tier 0 upwards now. - Custom mana1 & mana2 pickups dropped per tier (only give 2 ammo per pickup) - Fixed issue with Bundles not dropping for "tier 0" enemies. - Added option to toggle Bundle Health Bonuses visual style for Doom (food or vials) - Added debug option for forcing exclusive champion type - Added visual trails to Grey Champions when they perform a dodge. - Fixed issue with Legendoom's "Legendaries over Time" feature. - Fixed VM Abort with Blue Champion Projectiles. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.8~ The big boi. - New Mutation: HYBRID - will have a secondary Champion Effect - at the moment can spawn with any combination of Champion Effects, including duplicating effects. - I've decided to leave it at this "wild west" mode where anything goes for the time being - I have plans for a Hybrid blacklist if things are too hectic and/or broken. - Titans now have much more health - this stacks with other health giving champion effects, so watch out! - the health boost effects weaker enemies more than stronger enemies - enemies in the range of the Titan will be more aggressive - Pink champions have been reworked - They now resurrect fallen monsters for 20% of their health. - I felt like Pink Champions were a bit weak, so this makes them a priority target when they spawn - Originally they could resurrect infinitely, in testing this is very broken - Once below 20% health they will no longer resurrect. - Violet Champions projectiles now home slightly - I feel like Violets weren't much of a threat, especially if you can position yourself well this might combat that weakness a little. - Blue Champions burst into more projectiles, which are also slightly faster - Again Blues were also a bit weak, and it was very easy to dodge their death attack. - Projectile spawning is based off of Monster height & radius, and their "Boss" status. - Height determines the amount of tiers spawned, taller enemies spawn more tiers - Radius determines the amount of fireballs per tier. - Indigo Champions have been tweaked slightly in multiple ways - The clones now have a Damage Multiplier of 0.75 to match their size change. - Clone projectiles have also been shrunk & their speed scaled by 25%. - Spawning has been cleaned up & turned into an efficient loop, to allow for future tweaks. - Now spawn 4 clones when Legendoom Boosted Champions is enabled. - Silver Champions have been reworked - Their new effect is Magnetism - will suck players in close with a strong magnetic field - They still retain their increased stats, but to a slightly less OP degree - Dark Green & White Champions have been tweaked slightly - Creep has been re-written to a more flexible, inheritable base class - Green Creep now deals 5 damage, but can only deal 1 tick of damage every second - Dark Green & White champion's projectiles can leave creep - disabled by default, it's a work in progress feature and can be quite intense - enabled in under the Experimental Settings menu - Green champions now have a 3-5 second cooldown after performing a teleport. - Tweaked bundles slightly - They now drop more ammo & bonuses for each "tier" - Champions resurrected now no longer occasionally shuffle their mutations - The mutation system still needs a more thorough implementation outside of the base class. - Icons have been redesigned, slightly - I added a shaded effect & drop shadow to help boost icon visibility for those that use them. - Option to disable flat sprites for Dark Green & White champion creep. - This is based on an older request, and for those that use the software renderer. Sprites are from Hexen. - Added option to enable friendly Champions - A recently requested feature, off by default, but for those that want the option, it is there. - New under the hood Legendoom Compat changes by worldendDominator - Nothing really changes, but this helps to account for Legendoom's "Legendaries Over Time" feature. - Fixed a minor issue where Monsters would bleed rainbow blood when Legendoom is loaded and compatibility enabled. - Fixed all orange console warnings. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.7~ The Update That Took Even Longer - Champions now emit the correct colour blood! - This means Champions is now compatible with your favourite gore mods! - Added a new Mutation; Airborne! - Given the ability to float around at will, watch out below! - Tweaked Undying Mutations - Now can take damage, but will not die unless the Heart is vanquished. - Minor Colourful Hell Compatibility - CH's Colourblind setting now neatly arranges the type-icon next to the Champion's Identifier Icon (instead of a spam of actors just flying out of it) - Embers of Armageddon Incompatibility! - For some bizarre reason, EoA really messes up the Undying Mutations, so they are disabled when EoA is loaded Apologies!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.666~ The Update That Took Way Too Long - Certain Champions will now deal a secondary effect, such as: - Dark Green Champions poison you with their melee or ranged attacks - Cyan Champions will knock you back with their melee or ranged attacks - White Champions will slow you down with their melee or ranged attacks - Tweaks to the Silver Champion - Will warn you when it is about to shield - Becomes stationary when shielded - Visual Tweaks - Projectiles now have a Champion Coloured - Can be disabled in the options menu - Audio Tweaks - Indigo Champion clones have a higher pitched voice - Titan Mutations have a much deeper and intimidating voice! Issues Resolved - Fixed a crash related to the bundles system ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.5~ The Bundle Update - Bundles have been altered massively - Support for Doom, Heretic, Hexen and Strife! - Also support for Guncaster! When the mod is loaded, Champions will now drop Gold, Gems and even Tomes - Food! - Food drops from slain champions, it heals 1% health and comes in several varieties - Silver Champions now have a warning before their sheild is raised - Some other things (that I can't remember) Issues Resolved - Fixed issue with Guncaster Sprite name conflicts ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.2~ The Performance Update! - New options settings - Projectile/Blood inherits Champion Colour - New Ice translation - All setting modifications will take change AFTER map change. - Pink champions now heal more HP/s and will heal nearby enemies - Violet champions have 2 new patterns to attack with - Bundles have had an overhaul, will now drop better items - Drops are split into 6 tiers.

Issues Resolved - Performance - the previous versions made extensive use of expensive CVAR checks - I have reduced the amount of calls per tic on each champion and icon class - This has greatly reduced the numbers reported in the "stat vm" ccmd - One small caveat is that all CVar changes will only take effect after a map change. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~Quick Fix 2.1~ - This fixes a bug present in 2.0 in which Undying Champion's hearts do not alter the Champion if the heart is frozen, this renders the champion unkillable - Fixed a few minor visual glitches in Hexen featuring ice deaths ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v2.0~ - 4 new champions! - White - Slows the player down with a trail of white creep - Light Blue - causes a wind effect pushing away anything nearby - Bronze - will never flinch and takes reduced damage - Silver - can generate a reflective shield occasionally - Gold - will buff other nearby monsters, turning them golden - Mutations! - rare variants of champions, each mutation has a different effect - there are three so far! - Legendoom Compatibility! - Only Legendary Monsters become champions! - Exclusive Legendoom champion behaviour and boosted abilities - Set the Legendoom Compatibility Toggle in the menu - Icons and Particles - new visual effects to identify the champions - can be toggled on and off in the Champions Option menu Issues Resolved - Champion Spectres are no longer un-identifiable - Dark Red champions now drop items correctly - Whole champion system ported over to Thinkers - this should be a more lightweight system compared to the original Actor based solution ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v1.3~ - This is a bugfix update Issues Resolved - Fixed a critical bug that causes VM Execution Abort involving resurrection - Fixed a small issue with Grey Champions' sight checks not working properly ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~New Features in v1.2~ - 2 New champions! - Pink - regenerates 8hp/s - Titan - 3x Health and Damage, 1.5x slower movement speed - when killed gives the player a "fear" powerup for 30 seconds - Bundles! - very early bonus drops.
