$5. Or cheaper if you get one of the package deals.

Well basically any non-mechanical-gun toting monsters from Doom (Imps, Hell Knights, Baron of Hells, Cacodemons, Pain Elementals, Lost Souls, Pinky Demon, Arch Viles) and any magical based monsters (with no mechanical/cyborg/modern/ etc traits) from Torm's Beastry would fit into Hexen quite well.

I disagree. The Pain Elemental for an example would be a horrible fit, IMO.

Yes. If you get the id Super Pack, the only games that really require Steam to be played (no source port available as alternative exes) are RtCW and Doom 3.

They don't all fit that well, actually.

Well, Hexen is kinda like D&D, and D&D had Beholders. I think any beholder looking monster would fit decently, albeit strangely, into a medieval-magic game.

I can only imagine that the Imp could go in without alteration.

Everything else is too bright or cartoony.

However, changing the Hell Knight's and Demon's color I can imagine them fitting in.

Going unnecessarily further, ZDoom knows how to detect Steam games so if you kept Steam installed you wouldn't even need to move the IWAD because ZDoom would know where to find it in the Steam directory.

Not that that's going to convince you to keep it... :wink:

I wouldn't use most 'doomy' monsters and as it is I have Soul Harvesters which are like 'HeXenized Imps' but I'm thinking of not using even those. But only because they're still recognizable as a type of imp.

Satyrs btw are edited from the Hell Knight sprites. ;)

Also... a little surprise sort of related... it's for DooM 3 but TOTALLY has 2 do with HeXen - a trailer I made:

Actually, yes - I'm a club promoter and I work in security and do modeling sometimnes too-

Oh wait you meant MODDING-wise. Yeah getting stuff done, I'm working on HeXen: Edge of Chaos for DooM 3 and have worked on this too. My levels are bigger, and a 'new and improved' Satyr is done. He carries a bow and has a quiver on his back (and I didn't skimp on the rotations, either - his bow is always on his left as well as his quiver... AND you see him pull arrows from his back before firing). I've been trying to combine a few mods into this one as well such as the Warrior's enhanced weapons, but didin't spend too much time with it. I had trouble with the inventory states where you'd press secondary fire to get the hammer flaming. So I might go about that a different way, simply having the original sprites replaced... or something.
