I wasn't really planning on making it downloadable for those particular reasons. I was just bored and thought,"hey, I should make other weapon mods compatible with Brutal DooM." :P

Seems like a cool idea, you should post it. BD Lite is my preferred version since I can mess around with other weapon mods that way. Which one are you using, by the way? I've seen so many of them and I'm never sure which one is the best.

Which BD Lite? I don't know, what is the difference?

I might post it, but it's not THAT great of a change, besides regular DooM monsters. Maybe I will make one with the ATM monsters if that's okay with Weasel...

I also have to mention that I had to remove the weapons and classes from BD Lite, making it to where you have to spawn your weapons using:

Code: Select all

Summon Sledge
Summon DNPistol

... Seriously, why? The mod has monsters already, and they are specifically balanced for the weapons (and vice versa). It honestly comes across as a little rude. :?

I just got bored, as I said in the other post. I didn't mean to be rude.

The weapons in this mod are quite similar to BD's ones, to be honest, but they feel very different when playing with them.

Yes, they did. The best thing around here is the Clip based reloads, i think. Makes you think about when is the right time to reload.

Yeah, kudos for the magazine-based reloading.

Funny, that's my least favorite part of the mod. :P To each his own, I guess.

That's how I have been coding my weapons, I thought it would make a person break the habit of reloading after every kill.

If it were truly realistic, reloading early would mean you get an extra round, since there's one chambered in the gun in addition to the full magazine you just slid in.

Yep.

Talking about all this reloading, is a shell ejected & wasted if you pump a shotgun without firing irl?

Sure; pumping it sends out the current shell (if one is chambered) and puts in a new one. Whether or not that ejected shell still has powder/primer/shot in it, that's up to you (having fired it or not).

Not that I usually refer to movies for realism, but you can see this in a scene in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, when Indy asks for some shotshells; a soldier just ejects them from his gun into his hat.

I am not generally a proponent of clip-based reloading, but in this mod specifically I am not bothered by the mechanic. This mod is really good about the last bullets in a magazine being generally useful before reloading, and reloading itself - probably appropriately, seeing that they are clips - is unintrusive for just about every weapon but the trenchgun, which loads based shells. Earlier weapons are much easier to manage ammo for, as well, seeing as most pickups refill one clip per pickup - much less wasteful than Doom's approach.

In a nutshell, I probably would be bothered if weapons took eight years to reload.
