Don't suppose you fancy making a full set of that cutesy big-eye caco do you? I know it would only be of novelty value but there aren't too many frames required for a cacodemon replacement.

Sorry, at least not now. :( I'm already working on quite a demanding sprite and then another one awaits my attention... ;)
Maybe by the end of April.

Vader's working on it. There's another thread on R667 about coding this thing up. :D

Looks nice. I remember these things having quite weird homing missiles, they were sometimes able to follow you through sharp corners. I think they only home in every X seconds, but they turn instantly towards you.

If more of these will come, I'll be super happy. Quake has some monsters that i'd love to see in doom as well (fiend <3) , without clashing in styles (model rips are ugly).

Oh BTW I might make brightmaps for them.

Got it just about done! http://dl.dropbox.com/u/67411518/Vore.zip

Its projectile reasonably reliably chases around corners (every once in a while it adjusts in a way where it grazes a corner, unfortunately), it fits the same difficulty level it has in Quake 1, in terms of heath and damage, and its delay is about the same. Vader did the projectile, some slight color adjustment and did another frame so the delay on the missile attack looks better. But yeah, it's just a public beta, at this point.

@Z86: If you could do some brightmaps for the version I just uploaded, that'd be awesome. :D

Hmm, looking this over, I'm not sure I understand how you made the homing function work. Could you explain :P I mean, It can't be as simple as it looks? :shock:

It is! "Can I see my target? If so, adjust my course to intercept him." If the player disappears around a corner, it doesn't home until it can see him again. :P

Surprisingly, it wouldn't. That would just make it slam into corners more often.
