[Playerclass] Playable Doom monsters

Postby Rachael » Fri Jun 26, 2009 3:23 pm

This is taken directly from my Monster Deathmatch mod. I am releasing it to the Doom community in hopes that someone might find it useful. All that I ask is credit be given to me in the project - any project may use it, or parts of it, as long as I am mentioned somewhere in the credits.

These monster classes should be usable without modifications, and they can be used as actual player classes, or by using ACS or Decorate morph functions. Players can be turned into these creatures offensively or through powerups. It's up to you, really. :)

You might have to note that every version of these monsters is slightly faster than their AI counterparts, and most likely slightly more powerful. I've tried to keep them as close as possible, but variation was inevitable.

I can't tell you how many times I've seen these same kind of mods. You probably didn't know so we can leave it at that.

And you are...?


@SP: I think this would attract a bit more attention if there was a test map or something to showcase the new classes. That way they can be seen more easily without having to hack a map up just to take a look.

I'll see about making one later, then.

I'd like to note that the speeds are incorrect. The player's base (walking) speed is 10, not 8, since he runs as fast as the rockets which have a speed of 20.

Although that has very little to do with anything since you gave the imp a speed of 0.25 which is incorrect either way. :P

The speed formula has to be something like this:

(monster's "Speed" property) / (duration of one "See" frame) * (player modifier value)

The player modifier value is based on multiplying it by 1.0, which would be the player's full speed by default.

I still haven't figured out a very precise player modifier value, but the first two values are taken right from the monster's definition in the pk3. I may have gotten some values wrong, but I really need to figure out what to make the player modifier value before I can fix them all.

Is there some way how to morph the player into monster in a map other than the "monstertest"? Can I use some console command for that? Or, is there some other, more user-friendly mod that can morph the player into monster? Thanks.

And yes, I know this thread is 2 years old. I just look for this type of mod.

Well done, two year bump. :P

Anyway, the console command you're looking for is MorphMe <Morph Class>

I have seen these kind of mods before, but most of them suck, as in they are a WORTHLESS WASTE OF TIME :x . This one is actually pretty decent.

Unfortunately, I always get "morph failed" in the console. I guess this is because the monsters are not defined as a Morph Class in this mod. Well, nevermind.

By any chance, do you know any other similar mod? Could you provide link? Thanks.
