  • If no to the previous one, do I have permission from the original author?
  • If no to the previous one, did I put a reasonable amount of work into the resource myself, such that the changes are noticeably different from the source that I could take credit for them?
If you answered no to all three, maybe you should consider taking your stuff somewhere other than the Resources forum.

I dunno, if one is "just" going to reuse assets*, it starts to defeat the purpose of making something new. If everyone simply copies from one another the entire modding community is going to be stagnant in two years. (Not just talking out my ass here. I've practically never reused something in a mod without further editing it myself.)

You could also assume that other modders are entirely aware of a highly visible, very popular project and are still looking for assets from elsewhere because existing ones don't suit their needs. (Even if that need is as simple as "I don't want to just reuse stuff from another popular mod". Again, it's an entirely valid requirement.)

* And yes, folks, code is an asset too. This was brought up before.

Before anyone assumes I'm just soapboxing, Ghastly and I were actively discussing this, and he wanted me to back up this point.

What he said, number one. Number two, the project is to try to remake these things in a way that fits in with the original Doom's powerups, monsters and things. If I used MetaDoom's Hologram like was suggested, I wouldn't have the current Hologram, which fits in quite nicely. So I'm trying not to cannibalize other mods to fill out this project if I can help it.

That said, I don't have a huge issue with using that Megahealth, but I think it needs a little work. I tried it out in-game, and it looks too static. If it had some animation like the lights in the middle pulsing I think it would fit in better. I also am not quite sure who to credit for that sprite.

Also, thanks! The boots and adrenaline work perfectly!

Projectile and Pickup sprites for the Siphon Grenade now done.

EDIT: Added BFG Cell (using DBThanatos' D4T BFG Cell as a base) didn't add the rotating ring since Doom ammo sprites aren't animated.

Hope i'm not making an useless bump, but since this is a thread about Doom modding content from the series' later games, are there going to be plans for Eternal?
So far, we only got a reveal trailer, but this QuakeCon, we might see a few more things, at least.

Whoops, sorry for the delayed response. Been busy with work and other stuff. Yeah, I plan to add the truly new stuff from Eternal as well. I'll wait to see the full game itself before I add anything to the list though.

Speaking of adding things to the list, not sure why it was missing for so long, but added the Artifact from RoE to the list. Leaning towards just an inventory-stored timefreeze powerup for the Doom 2-style powerup, but as usual when I do something like that I'll include another version that's more true to the original. The reason for including two versions like that is the first "official" version for the project is something intended to work fine alongside Doom 2's own assets and the other RoE assets, and a more true-to-original Artifact would be pretty redundant with the Berserk. But I'll include a more true-to-original version as well for people completely redoing the item lineup.

On another note, I hate the name Artifact for it, since it's so generic and the word became a catch-all for powerups in Heretic and Quake. Both Doom wikis say it's also referred to as the Bloodstone, but is it ever called that in-game? EDIT: It's apparently called that in several places in the source code.

Also, Megahealth is done.
