[Request] Help with a weapons mod.

Postby VecterStroke » Mon Aug 13, 2018 2:18 am

I want to make a basic weapons mod that collects different types of weapons from across id games. The weapons have alt-fires, and reloading changes ammo type.
Here is a list of the types of weapons I would Like:

Pistol
Machine Gun
Shotgun
Supershotgun
Nailgun
Flamethrower
Rifle
Minigun
Rocket Launcher
Grenade Launcher
Plasma Rifle
Railgun
BFG
Unmaker (Styled after the one from the Doom Bible).

A major question I have is can I copy weapon decorate code for my weapons if I give credits?

You can probably find useful graphics all over our Resources section with a little digging.

Credits are the bare minimum I expect out of someone wanting to borrow from a mod. Ideally, you'd be asking permission from anybody you're planning to borrow from.

I wrote some tutorials some years ago; they're a bit dated, but should still help you with the basics.

Even with the stuff from realm667? I'm working on a map that uses a bunch of these realm667 submission and have a long credit file with all the information for it but I haven't contacted any of the creators, I'm expectng that they gave the premission to use their stuff for mods to everyone when they submitted it but I'm not sure after reading your post

Realm667 is something of a special case, as most things are submitted there in the full expectation that there is no need to ask. Even they, however, ask that they be credited (and don't just write "thanks to realm667" in your read me file and be done with it).
