Re: Rampancy - [1.1]

Post by Tesculpture »

Apologies; my previous comments weren't particularly helpful. Either way, this is now my favourite monster replacement mod, both for the new, yet balanced, well crafted challenges it presents, and being able to fight something original that isn't demons. And of course, because ROBOTS.

I only wish there were some map sets to go with it; granted there are plenty of maps with a cyberpunk theme that the robots look right at home in, (some examples being Mutiny, Diabolus Ex and MMDCXIV) but they a)still contain references to a demon invasion which tends to break the immersion, and b) lack a traditionally implemented Icon o' Sin boss fight for the AI Core to replace.

I've just given version 1.1 a go with DRLA 1.1.4, and there appears to be a sprite name conflict between the debris sprites and DRLA's barrels.


If it helps, I'm loading DRLA after Rampancy, no other mods loaded.

1.2 is now released, adding a few neat things and fixing the dreaded debris sprite conflicts.

I guess you're trying to say, this mod goes nice with Lizardcommando's Omega Zero mod?

Just to ask: Does anyone know of a good texture replacement mod to go with this? I know Xim made a full Star Wars texture set; but as good as it is, I just don't think it quite fits here. I'd like something a bit more... Terminator-inspired, I think.

EDIT: Thanks a bunch, this actually fits quite well.

However, I've got a bit of negative feedback with regards to the Roller Bot, the Revenant replacement. It seems that levels that have Roller Bots in them take an eternity to load. I think it might be something to do with how the Roller was coded into the mod. I wouldn't know, I'm not a coder or anything. It just seems odd that this one enemy causes so much trouble with loading times.

I've put about 10 hours into this mod and never run into a loading issue. Try turning off "precache gl textures" in the texture options menu if it's on.

EDIT: Yeah, turning off "Precache GL Textures" did the trick. Thanks.

Still loving this, but have some issues and suggestions:
-The boss robots reference a Final Doomer DamageType called "C4", but the actual DamageType used by C4 in Final Doomer is "C4Explosive".

-Legendary Loader Bots have the special ability to "retaliate extremely quickly if flinched", but Legendary bosses are given +NOPAIN anyway, so the special ability never comes into play.

-The Defender Bots feel a bit underpowered compared to the other robots. Maybe if they fired more pellets, or the pellets did more damage?

-With regards to RL Arsenal, would you consider making the robots vulnerable to the Cyber-disrupting effect of the Nano-modded Steel Beast?

Hey, i see the giant loader has berserk move if its health is extremely downed. But what about the big military walker? It just fires vulcan and rocket like it usually does.

And i really don't want to be that guy who dislikes the whole existence of repair bot, but for real, though. They unintentionally made Plutonia's MAP11 Hunted way a lot easier-- they don't even move right to the teleporter. They just stand in the cage!

So about that. Thankfully and unfortunately, some archvile jumpscares won't gonna work as they intended.

Thanks, fixed.

They're good at attrition, I'd rather not make them worse.

I'll probably be removing that effect anyway, so no.

1.3 is out!
Main feature is a new menu option for scaling how much damage robots take.
