This mod just gets better everyday. Once this gets to an stable build, i'll make my edits to it. I have many things left around here that didn't find their home yet.

Anyway, the new cocking animation to AR is excellent, but when you finish cocking the gun it finishes and switches to idle frames too fast. Slow it up a bit.

Now, just some nitpicks, these ones you don't need to consider if you want:

- Minigun is going too much down when firing, seems like bouncing instead of a recoil.
- You could use a very small radius quake to AR and minigun.
- Do you consider adding ADS to AR and shotgun just like Weapons of Saturn?
- The older pumping sound from shotgun was better, IMO. This new one remembers me of vanilla pumping sound.
- The clip sound from Quake II is kinda overused. I know, i'm not the right man to talk about this, but... just nitpicking.
- There's a weapon mod made by Z86, but i've seen this in so so many others,there's those projectiles for the plasmarifle and BFG that give a nice effect to the game and i think you've already seen it on XWeapon by railgunner. Do you mind if i send them to you?

Keep on rocking in this mod!

Thanks! It would be quite interesting to see somebody else's take on this mod. :wink:

I've slowed it down by two tics. Feels a bit nicer, and looks a bit better. :)
- Minigun is going too much down when firing, seems like bouncing instead of a recoil.
I feel like this + radius quake = satisfaction. I can change it for next build though.
- You could use a very small radius quake to AR and minigun.
Done. Now, AR has a very small radius quake whereas minigun has a bit of a bigger one. :D
- Do you consider adding ADS to AR and shotgun just like Weapons of Saturn?
Considered & tested for the AR, however, to be honest, I've never really seen the point in ADS on a shotgun. It's easy enough to implement, anyway, so I'll add it. 8-)
- The older pumping sound from shotgun was better, IMO. This new one remembers me of vanilla pumping sound.
Old pumping sound restored!
- The clip sound from Quake II is kinda overused. I know, i'm not the right man to talk about this, but... just nitpicking.
I have trouble finding a different clip sound, and I'm aware that the Quake II sound is used everywhere. I'll roam around. :)
- There's a weapon mod made by Z86, but i've seen this in so so many others,there's those projectiles for the plasmarifle and BFG that give a nice effect to the game and i think you've already seen it on XWeapon by railgunner. Do you mind if i send them to you?
Sure, you can send them to me. I think I have seen those projectiles before. They'll make the game feel a bit nicer, I think. 8-)
Keep on rocking in this mod!

Have fun! Thanks for your feedback! :rock:

Rather than randomly replacing ammo crate, the Rifle should be dropped by Zombiemen.

The problem is I don't really want to replace monsters in this mod, so that you can load it up and play with your own custom monster mods/gore mods. That's why I'm using the randomly replacing ammo crate solution as a workaround. If the need arises I guess I could replace monsters eventually.

Quick question: Is aiming down sights with rifle and shotgun worth adding in? It's very easy to do, but it might ruin the mod for some. Thoughts?

It would be optional, so if people think it would ruin the mod they can just aim regularly. REally I'd do whatever you think is best for your own mod man.

The rifle's animation is fine to go, neat work and glad i helped you! And yeah, You might add aiming to rifle and shotgun. If you don't like the simple ways and want to make the mod fancier.

Led, You might touch the randomspawner to spawn it along with chaingun randomly. It's a good idea, yes?

Well, sweet then. I've added aiming to rifle and shotgun. :wink: They will be ready for next update.
Thanks again for those rifle sprites, Captain J :wub: Couldn't have done it without you. :)
Spawning rifle along with chaingun randomly makes more sense. :lol: I'll tweak the randomspawner for next update.
Overall, I suppose this little project is almost done. :mrgreen:

Edit: Adding a random spawner for the chaingun meant that chaingunners had a chance to drop rifles instead of miniguns.
There's nothing I can do except redefine the chaingunner which I don't want to do since I want to keep full compatibility with monster/gore mods. :oops:

The shotgun is supposed to be a short-ranged weapon. What is the point of giving it ironsights?

To tighten up its spread. Many other mods do this as well.
Besides, the ironsights are totally optional, you don't have to use them. :wink:

Plus, it makes it more deadlier and obviously accurate in long range. So aiming makes it more useful like other guns that are able to zoom.

Updated!
-Cleaned up the Mod Options menu
-Added a new feature - Death Animations. It is in the EXPERIMENTAL category in the Mod Options menu and is turned off by default.
When enabled, a new animation will play when the player dies, instead of the weapon simply being holstered.
The code is finished, however the animation is not. I am still on the hunt for fresh sprites for it. The current ones aren't widescreen friendly.

The newly added first person death animation is looking really dancy, i say!

...But i have been thinking, is anyone made the bloodily mangled version of doomguy's arm? I haven't seen them recently. It might be an excellent use for first person gib animation!

I don't think anybody has made a bloodily mangled version of doomguy's arm. Or, if one has been made, I've never seen it before.
Someone did make the fiery Strife arm edits though, so I could add those in for when the player dies from a fireball or something. :)
What I really would like to do is leave the player's arm in a resting position and leave it at that for the end of the animation, and also (like Powerslave/Exhumed) spawn in a bloodpool that slowly gets bigger, just below the player's viewheight. It would be really awesome. :D
