On the topic of model names, does anybody really pay attention to the (fictional) manufacturer/model names on my guns? I've been giving my weapons little fictional backstories ever since wwhc-diaz, and I have to wonder if anybody really cares about that. I have fun writing them, but is it worth my time?

I personally love them. I see them all the time because I have weapon nametags enabled, but I kinda wish they were also called by name when picked up, the way the second Marston currently is.

I've always liked how you actually give names to the weapons and item/ammo pickups, it's a nice little detail that helps the mod come together. You get tired of just seeing "You got a clip/shotgun!" or something over and over so it's a good change.

The feature of your mod I loved the most really was the -lore.txt. They give extra immersion to the mod, more than just slapping gun on player face and say "C'mon, use it.". Your writing is so good that on my early plays with mod I think Makoto Arms is a real weapon manufacturer. Also, they are good chuckles source (cancer inducing wind-up flashlight, Gordon Frohman works on Maxwell Labs, etc). And the AtM protagonist actually is action movie hero.

Yeah your weapon names are what makes your mods so characteristic. It's like how I know if I'm playing a ww-weapons.wad of some sort. :D

I'd be more inclined to read about them if they really were fictional weapons. Not just re-branded real world stuff.

I enjoy any kind of eagerness to deepen the game world. Little backstories like that are a good thing just on principle, in my book.

that was a bit rude of you to say that.

Also Carbine only wanted to compliment the mod.

Yes, the mod is great, but it's really choking nowadays.

Sure, it could use a little more weapons, but overall, it was pretty awesome. When I first saw this thread, I thought there where more weapons involved.

The special effects remind me of The Railgunner's X weapon mod. They look very similar in terms of effects, and the fact that Weasel and Railgunner used Doom Nukem's weapon sprites for the mods. I also loved the title screen, it looked awesome. The only thing that was a problem for me is the voxels. I could not find out how to turn them off.

That's because X-Weapon was derived from from this mod, Railgunner is attempting to derive further away with the Helsturm edition.

For voxels use the command "r_drawvoxels 0" in the console. If you don't want to do that everytime, a more permanent solution is to outright remove the Voxeldef.txt file.

This mod is pretty sick (In a good way). I had a lot of fun blasting those lifeless bastards with my new weaponry!

Things that I dislike:

1. The weapon smoke. Either improve it's effect or scrap it completely. Not only it's tad distracting, but the effect is awful.

2. The new BFG9000, it is a COMPLETELY USELESS WEAPON. I can't even believe how many shots I fired to take down a single Cyberdemon.

3. The Assault Rifle sprite looks weird.. I dunno what's going on with it, but it doesn't look like an Airsoft Assault Rifle.

4. The Sledge is also a completely useless weapon. Please improve it's speed otherwise scrap it.

5. Where's the Plasma Gun?

Anyways, I found this mod pretty damn cool and I approve.
