Aliens Doom TC: Special Edition

Projects that have specifically been abandoned or considered "dead" get moved here, so people will quit bumping them. If your project has wound up here and it should not be, contact a moderator to have it moved back to the land of the living.

Excuse me please, for this sudden intrusion of mine, but can I ask a few things?

1) How did you manage to extract AT's sprites? I tried myself, but failed :(
And if you were able to do that, maybe it is possible to extract some more sprites from AT (like eggs, facehuggers...), textures, and put them in TC, at least as a separate wad - file?
2) Is it possible to make a...ummm..."facehugger death" state? Just like it was in "Alien Quake", "AvP" & "AvP 2"?

1) I didnt, I found the resources here :P and there should be a topic about AT sprites in the resources section

2) I'm working on it, but at the moment I can't, ive got all the graphics and part of the code ready, I'm waiting on whether A_jumpiftargethealth will be accepted because i need it for it to work!

Oh, thank you very much for your quick reply. Found that topic already :)
Yeah, that will be great if you could add it ("facehugger death") as well.

Played this TC. Really scaaary, if you ask me. You never know where to expect THEM. Lights in and out, and the Hive...
Still, gotta say that levels need to be polished a bit. And I don't mean texture aligning - sometimes I bump into something, that is blocking my way (those "columns" in the Hive). Also, not enough ammo, but more of it will probably ruin the atmosphere of TC.
Music give additional suspense as well, but maybe some tracks from Alien Trilogy might help?

As promised, here's my rendition of e3m1.
http://www.sendspace.com/file/k788hi -accidentally uploaded only the resource pk3 :? , here's both the map wad and resource pk3.

Features
-converted to take advantage of UDMF features
-complete retexturing using modified AVP2 textures
-new inventory items -flashlight and flares
(you start with the flashlight. default key "F")
-rearranged enemy and item placement (you don't get all weapons at the start and ammo is more of a precious commodity)[/color]
PROTIP: Save your grenade and flame rounds for the end
-some minor cosmetic changes to weapons (gunflashes and grenade smoke)
-music from Alien Trilogy (if you don't like it there's always "stopmus" in console)



Some things you should be aware of
-This map has a VERY big surprise at the end. (which can be completely spoiled if you view the PK3 contents, so please finish the map before you go snooping around in the data)
-This map is meant to be played with either DOOM or DARK sector light modes. Any other mode robs it of its atmosphere.
-Because of the heavy reliance on dynamic lights, this wad is meant to be used in GZdoom.
-the playerclass had to be changed to accommodate the weapon changes and inclusion of the flashlight.
-the map has 4 secret areas, but for some reason the UDMF format does not make this apparent.
-the next major update will follow Ben2k9's update to the main wad, but if any problems show up beforehand, I'll release a quickfix ASAP.

Gah. Use Mediafire. That way, downloading won't take ten years.

Incidentally, the problem has always been the exact opposite for me.

I finished again Aliens TC (long time since last time) Good improvement into a classic tc. But i think the aliens attack should be lowered. An ambush when you dont expect, is a reload. And that is not good (also because the map is too cramped) and that will make the game more fun.

One thing to improve, in order to give an amazing effect is the light. A pity that some places could be amazing is better light was used (more light details, and maybe better user of Gzdoom features like earthquakes)

The improved aliens are much better now, and cleaner. I hope new levels are made.

BTW some time ago i found some new levels to Aliens TC. Are those levels compatible with the mod?

EDIT: Yes, Orin's AL|ENS T.C. it works :)
