Universal Map Enhancements

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

For some reason using a custom weapon mod and shooting, punching, or otherwise making any splash directly beneath you in nukage or blood causes about 1 or 2 damage to the player, even if the floor is not damaging. I tested this with both Final Doomer and Project Babel, and it is generally not a big deal. However, if the gun ejects a casing--as in Final Doomer's Plutonia Super Shotgun--it will make a splash directly underneath the player, causing unnecessary and sometimes unavoidable damage. Perhaps an option to turn off liquid splash damage could be added? Thanks.

Sorry, but I can't seem to replicate this. Are you using the most recent versions of both mods? Also, is this happening on a specific source port?

Latest version of both mods, using the RC6 gold edition of Map Enhancements, on Gzdoom 4.10.0. I recorded a short preview of this issue occurring on map22 of Plutonia in the non-damaging nukage:

Additionally, the splash from falling into damaging lava--my example being on map07 of TNT Evilution--damages the player fairly significantly even through the rad suit: https://imgur.com/krYp4Yg

Managed to resolve the splash damage from terrain issue. Updated and ready for download!

Be sure to check the changelog in the OP for more details into fixes and added features. 8-)

Without BDV21 there is plenty of missing textures and "errors".
With "UniversalMapEnhancements_V21Beta_RC6.pk3" there is still missing textures and unknown actors.
With "UniversalMapEnhancements_V21Gold_RC6.pk3" seems that all textures are there, but there is still many unknown actors:

Can you, please, fix it somehow?(
The new version that has been uploaded fixes the missing textures/actors, but I also included a patch in the zip that will allow the wad to be loaded. Do note, the patch essentially makes the weapon actors referenced by the wad null, so expect those pickups to be missing in the map.

You are truly a savior, mate! Now all decorations on their places! :wub:
Now I can enjoy playing "Deadly Bricks" with any mods I want and w/o cursed experience of "not having CS:S mounted" to my GZDoom! :oops:
