I absolutely adore those new Pinky sprites. :D

It'd be nice if Zanieon's Knight and Baron sprites were used in this mod.

Also, what maps are all featured in these screencaps?

Not much accurate, but most retrospective like vanilla sprites nonetheless. That's the charm that phobos867's sprites have.

It doesn't matter so much to me. It may be just me... but I'm pretty tired of all the frankensprited Baron/Knight variants. Seeing things switched up with Zanieon's heavily polished D4 rips brings a breath of fresh air.

Now, how about the names of those map sets, please? :D

These are frankensprites? Did not notice. They still look better than original D4 models to me. I especially cannot take the new Baron seriously (that is not Zanieon's fault, as Baron was just like that in the Doom 4). The one here looks more intimidating by far, if only because he strolls instead of running (hence he looks taller than the hunched D4 Baron).

The D4 Barons look cooler. They made some much needed improvements on the original Baron, ever since it was totally neglected in Doom 3.

Having this thing stroll towards you is more intimidating than having it lumber toward you like it's gonna kill you?
Mapset names, please? XD

Either of them looks good and has their own style. And they has own flaws, also. Don't need to compare over their merit and let the others use each one of them whatever they like.

Not that every other ported sprites from other games matches so well as the edits of the original original ones, but this is correct.

It is fine that Phobos867 actually put effort in trying to edit Bruiserdemon sprites to look like the Doom 4 Baron, what i did was literally sprite the Doom 4 baron itself, no way that sprites will fit with the others without a manual editing, otherwise they will look more like Doom 64 sprites.

Yes, I think that Phobos' Baron is more badass for that. He shows in this way that he has plenty of time to kill you and does not take you entirely seriously. Doom 4's Baron looks like a panicked ork in comparsion. Moreover, D4 Barons' appearance is too plasticine (too shiny and too bright shade of pink), and his musculature is weird (shoulders in particular look like unfinished pauldrons). Lastly, his face irks me. His face expression is way dumber than that of the original Baron. Phobos' Baron is similar in face, but has more going for him in appearance in general. And I like how he has his limbs permanently covered in plasma. (Not to mention, I really like Archon of Hell that was used as a placeholder in D4D for Barons, and Phobos one is markedly closer to Archon)
But all of this is subjective. For each his own pick, I guess. It is nice we have a choice which Baron we would like to confront :)

Well, I think we can all agree at least that no Baron skips the #legday :lol:
