He doesn't start with a shotgun, though. =P

This is true, but I could honestly see him deciding to forgo the pistol nonsense for that Sawed off you get your hands on =P


Edit: Actually the Private version I'm using along side with an edited version of Hard-doom starts with it (Since you start with the normal shotgun in Hard-Doom), but yeah that's far from "canon".

Another new version.
  • Hopefully should be the last release until Doom Nukem sends me the new HUD.
  • Shotgun reload sequence can no longer be interrupted with altfire.
  • Added some degree of randomness to the sequence length of reload and fire animations, especially for the two shotguns, to cut down the "rhythm" and make them a bit more natural.
  • Pillowblaster's improved explosions are further improved.
  • Rocket launcher now takes 8 rockets to a mag instead of 4, damage and fire rate altered to suit, and rockets are now +EXTREMEDEATH.
  • Added the Imp Variants from realm667, for aesthetic purposes (and appropriate balance changes to make the Impbomination less of a pain).
  • The Baron of Hell is souped up (using resources from mkww-ah).
  • Maybe other changes I don't remember because uuuugggghhhhh.

Speaking of extreme death, the actors which, to me, seem as if they should be the most likely to explode into small piles of putrefying debris (the pistol guys) have a relatively un-extreme looking extreme death. It doesn't feel as satisfying to hit them with the RL as it should IMO. In fact, I'd suggest that the current extreme death might be better employed as a second normal death, chosen with slightly less likelihood than the current regular death. Then I think that a more traditional "explode into red pulp" set of graphics could be made to fill the extreme death role.

I need to finish those sprites someday...

I'm really digging everything so far! I would complain about the bullet icon in the fullscreen hud being really confusing as far as ammo goes, but since we're getting a new hud I won't. Awesome work.

like it lots and the implementation of clips is something very nice yet i feel that the sound and the animation are not sync and maybe the kick from the guns seems too hard, the pistol look odd more like shoting the sky :P

oh no idea if somebody told this but when u shot in angle and is more common to notice is that the smoke from the weapon is no attached to the gun...
leaving smooke in the center of the screen

Spoiler:
Oh by any chance can you make the enemies drop more ammunition? sometimes the ammo is deepleted very fast ;)

What's a more reliable way to spawn gun smoke? A_SpawnItemEx isn't cutting it.

Because it is now the Super Shotgun replacement.
Oh. Well, okay then. :V

Makes me wonder how a bazillion coach guns wound up on Mars, then, though...

Why not make the bullet call
right, hitscans
Why not shoot the smoke as a projectile?

Meanwhile the breechloader has another problem, that it's really easy to accidentally shoot both when you only meant to shoot one. Maybe this can be made "semi-auto" with minimum time required between shots?

One possibility that came to mind while I was thinking about the logistics of a spacefaring mid-future setting is that you might need to equip everyone with some kind of emergency launcher thingy in case they're in space and need to launch themselves back towards something. A primitive breechloader might be thought of as reasonably non-threatening for ordinary personnel to keep.

(Of course, this begs the question of why a gun to begin with, but we can just blame the NRA and other industry lobbyists for that.)

Which maps are you playing with the mod? Most of the time, I find that I'm pretty much swimming in ammo after the first level or so, like some weird munitions-obsessed Scrooge McDuck or something...

Hmm, I suppose there was merit to the old "SmokeSpawner" projectile method after all...

I suppose I could remove the refires and get around to actually adding the alternate fire that I was so against adding...those of you who were wanting it, bear in mind that it will not be any more powerful than a pair of single blasts. =P

this made me chuckle a bit haha. the armories quarter master must have been a mad max fan.

so this seems more or less the final version of the hud before I split up all the assets and make the font for the counters.
I brought back the mugshot albeit modified to look more badass.

EDIT: scrapped the radar and changed positioning of stuff

Second Edit: The face will more or less be transparent as to retain the 'holographic' look, I merely left the alpha untouched for preview purpose.

The Hud face (at least in my opinion) would look better if it was holographic (sorta like the the skull from the last version you posted).

Also: I'm digging your Avatar, DN.

How about spawning gun smoke as A_FireCustomMissile? Worked quite well in my mod, maybe due to the angled weapons though.
