Hey, Just wanted to say the execution of the hud and the spritework and reloads is pretty cool.

Basically...

The damage is increased about 20% for all bullet/shell weapons but fire at the same rate to make up for reloading.
Pistol and MG are perfectly accurate.
Shotgun is loosey goosey
Super is same but can do up to 10 damage a pellet - really really op IMO, one less pellet.
Gatling gun is basically same as chaingun but also does up to 12 damage a bullet (50%)
Grenade launcher does 220% more damage but also has shorter range, does not bounce.
Missile launcher fires a little faster and shoots 2 homing missiles with identical damage to rocket.
Plasma rifle got a ROF nerf with the same damage... not a good trade off.\
autoshotgun fires a perfectly accurate slug doing up to 15% more damage x 5 pellets worth of damage.
Chainsaw is double speed.

I guess my question is what exactly are you going for, vanilla or enhanced vanilla or vanilla with some pizazz, or what have you?

If it were me i'd rather keep the damage formulas but have more speedy, responsive weapons.

Adding damage is ok too, but i would say you need to make it uniform. especially with shotguns when you change the spread on the classic shotgun it totally changes the way you play that weapon, as with the auto"sniper"shotgun.

ALSO, would be nice to have new sounds to go with.

Thanks for the feedback ! Some changes have been made : The weapons are a bit more balanced (I guess...) and Quake II weapons sounds are added (Credits to Id Software).

I also need some new sprites for the shotgun (the reloading frames are black).

Hey, check your inbox, i made some tweaks you might appreciate! Might be able to help on those sprites, this weekend i'll be more free.

oh, and i was toying with the double missile launcher and the tracking on the missiles is pretty terrible. is there a way we could have a delayed heat seeking or less aggressive heat seeking like revenant balls?

Pretty good ! It's more tactical but the speed of the sprites will not change for the next update.
For the missile launcher, I don't know what are the reals values of A_Explode() (the wiki says that the explosion and the radius are set to -1 by default)

I did IDFA and console "give all" to check for the heavyMG and railgun, and I haven't got either.
Edit: Tried the other commands, heavy machinegun definitely needs some more punch to it.

Machinegun, AutoShotgun, HeavyMachinegun, Grenade Launcher, Missile Launcher and Railgun are +WEAPON.CHEATNOTWEAPON. You can write on the command give / summon eri(weapon) or write WeaponsCheat.

PowerupsCheat gives all powerups.

Not bad! The overall mod isn't too bad. Adding reloading functions give this mod an extra tactical feel to it. I'm not sure if I want to add reloading in my mod too.

Some criticisms: I feel like the grey rifle is a bit redundant. There's already a machine-gun and the pistol. It doesn't really add anything aside from being a recolored auto shotgun. The dual pistols feel kinda clunky to use. The controls don't feel responsive with them, in my opinion.

Other than that, I'm liking it so far.

What happened to the HeavyMachinegun? Why not just replace the regular MG with it?

The HeavyMachinegun looks like a reskin of the AutoShotgun. But don't worry about that, I can make an addon for the mod.
