HereticPlus [Randomizer] Update 9/21/14

Post by PRIMEVAL »

One day I attempted to make a randomizer for Doom, but it occurred to me how many times it was done. Then I realized how little love Heretic seems to get in comparison and decided to make a randomizer for it. Still work in progress, got some things to work out but it is playable right now. Feel free to check it out and give some feedback.

Also, HereticPlus is a placeholder name and I'm currently brainstorming ideas for a new name. Any suggestions are appreciated!

That's weird, it works on the Doomworld thread (http://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/6 ... er-gzdoom/)...

I'll add a mediafire link in the OP here, but it probably won't be as updated as the Dropbox link.

you might wanna change the name so as to not cause any confusion between the enhancement mod Heretic++.

Sunuva... Okay, I'll change the name of the file in the next update. Blimey, I thought I was being all original.

well, regardless of the mod's name, i took a look into it, and i liked what i saw so far. nothing really gamebreaking and seems interesting enough. there were a few things, though;

- the fire wand seems strange in its behaviour, and often hits you when you're moving forward. also, the wand is very tiny compared to the Elven one.
- there's some text oddities. the heretic and Hexen games never had commas and ellipses in their messages, or stuff like the "yum" for eating an apple, so seeing them in the new items creates inconsistency. unless you're planning to change every piece of text so that it sounds differently, you might wanna change things such as "eating some carrots" and "eating an apple, yum" to "whatever carrots" and "delicious apple", to create consistency. not a huge deal, but i don't like text inconsistency in my Doom engine mods. :p

other than that, nothing worth griping yet. none of the new enemies seem overpowered just yet, and the new items are kind of fun to pick up and see what they do.

Yeah, the FireCrystal I'm still playing around with. I like it's Pros, but the Cons can get annoying. Heh. And I'll look into the text, I actually never noticed that. xD

New update (link in OP), some more balancing with the stronger monsters, small textual nitpicks sorted out, death glitches fixed, and new placeholder name. Check it, yo.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions for a good new, proper name for this mod, please let me know!

Maybe call it Heretic: Depths of Hell or something, since you have a lot more monsters and such?

Aleatoruxx... is that referencing something I'm not getting by chance? lol Quite a complicated name it seems. Thank you, though, for the suggestions. They're noted. Any feedback on the mod itself, though? xD

if you still wanna keep the plus in the name, you could call it HerePlus, maybe. i guess it's not of huge priority until you get to make a titlepic or something, though. i'll get through the updated version soon.

That I'm not so sure on, it may be a bit more complicated than Heretic or Doom. I can always attempt it, though.
