flashlight!

Post by osjclatchford »

its a more 'DooM' styled DooM3 flashlight!

kind of a paradoxical homage. a doom homage to a doom3 item that's in turn from a game that's homage to original doom.....
ARGH my brain hurts.
I tried to design it as if this is the inspiration for the doom3 version, get me?
anyway it uses the doom3_guns.wad's flashlight code as a base but is altered a lot to use my pistol and inventory system from my custom wad...

the sprite is based off of one of eriances hands, an section of the alpha-doom rifle weapon. a bit of the duke devastator and blood flaregun for the angled end. and the duke pipebomb button. I also used hexen's 'mace of contrition' for the basis of the upended flashlight. most usefull!

the pickup was a bast to do. it is actually a null item that gives you two torch weapons (centred one and one with pistol) and an inventory item (that in turn, when activated, simply selects the centred version weapon and replaces itself in the inventory)
the spawn sprite is just the flashlight but the beam of light is a separate actor that is highly transparent and lasts for but 3 tics and is simply spawned over and over again on a loop untill the spawned item is gone , ie picked up...
see, what a pain...
oh and if anyone wants to use, alter, improve or mess about with these sprites, please do; its share and share alike here!...

I know this is a reeeeally old thread, but since someone on Realm667 was making a flashlight using some of these sprites, I figured I'd just drop this here for sake of sharing in case someone stumbles across it:

^^^ Brutal gloves included, and you can throw the flashlight. It'll shoot light all over the place while it's flying through the air and when it lands, it'll remain there and light up the ground in the surrounding area until it's picked up.
Here's the related thread on Realm667:
