Ever since Reelism 2 was announced, I knew I wanted to go all in on modding for it and get my gzdoom modding skills back in use for some fun, crazy, and stupid reels. So far, i've made a sizable dent in this plan.
This mod autoloads Reelism 2 for you, so, just run this mod.
Slot 1: Tyketto's Tome Of Power! (weapons are augmented and behave differently. There may be a copy available for outside the reel, too...) WIP!
Almost all of them have effects now! The only ones that don't are
The Aegis: Take half damage for a round. Try not to get overconfident.
Screaming Squirts: Grenades appear behind you every second. Keep moving forward!
Blue Magic now has a Phased Plasma Rifle, from a certain Terminator enemy below...
Heavy Caliber: Four deadly, powerful weapons, limited by a low ammo capacity and rare ammo type. Use them wisely.
Mega Items: No weapons, but powerful items!
Retro Rockets: Blake Stone weapons. [Tomed versions now in.]
PIE ASS (Pirates! Fast melee attackers and deadly ranged attackers. Sometimes drop lucky coins to add more points. Can possibly be bribed, over at Town...)
The Front (Friendly Rebels join your cause to fight off the denizens of the Reel Zones.)
Mid Boss Crisis! (The Baby Bosses. Duke3d and Shadow Warrior-esque mini versions of most of the bosses, with some simplified attacks and less deadly behavior, but overall still very, VERY much a threat to you.)
Exploding LIps (From the Bardo Spaces, they come to fling explosives at you...beware, it's always a Birthday Party with the lips.)
The Great Pig Revolt! (The pigs are pissed. It's your turn to become bacon. Small Hogwitzers, fierce Gamorreans, and experienced Pigcops, all await you...)
SkyNET Returns! (You've been targeted for Termination. These nasty robots are few in number, but are tough, fire fast, and do not infight with each other at all. They even refuse to die when you first kill them...the bastards.)
Star Institute - if you remember the Wolf3d reel from Reelism 1, this one is quite familiar. Just, Blake Stone.
Red Pills - Nerds LARPing the Matrix. Pretty coordinated as a fighting force. Nasty dodging. Still pretty squishy.
DOS Trash - enemies from the less enjoyable entourage of Doom Clones. All pretty weak, but large numbers and a lot of chaos. Still more DOS Trash enemies to be added.
The LARD Special Forces! (a special team of four of the toughest bastard pigs have been called forth to bust your ass. A nasty pigtank and three deadly varieties of Recon Patrol Vehicle will initially cause you trouble, but it's the pigs within them afterwards that'll really give you the fight...)
The Goddamn Pirate Wizard! A two-phase boss who is a master of the elements - he calls out his attacks, so if you pay attention, you can figure out the pattern to beat him... but he'll still be a hell of a fight.
Mr. Falcon - From WW-Terror, with love. Mr. Falcon's been in charge of multiple syndicates for a while now...and, well, he wants to ensure you don't mess with his operations. He's gotten a better grenade launcher since his WW-Terror days, too.
Blue...Lips? - from the deepest depths of the horrors of Bardo Spaces, these giant blue lips are here to summon more Exploding Lips for you to deal with.
Additionally, goodies are to be found in Town...
Including a new superweapon.
Two maps, now...
Additionally, there's some new sounds for the quick draws guns - I wanted them to sound more like they were from a western.
Some planned stuff include Stroggification (become a Tank Commander for a round).
Right, so, as Reelism 2 has had it's big release recently, something i've been waiting for to continue mine, this mod's gotten an update.
Autoloader! Just load my mod, and it'll autoload Reelism 2 for you, too. Learned this trick from the new Samsara release.
Fire Crossbow and Dog Gun now have tomed versions.
Manual has the new reels.
The Strife Rebels, Pirates, and Exploding Lips all have more variety.
Oh man it's good to see an addon for REELism 2 already available. I like AW FUCK Reel the most because it's overwhelming and fairly balanced at the same time. One feedback might be the name itself because it kinda overlaps with Aw Fuck, Skeletons!
I kinda expected it to be named Mid-Boss Crisis or Mini-Boss Madness. Cuz both reel names using F word i guess.
