On the contrary, I found it hilarious when I tried stabbing one with the boot knife and was drenched head to foot in cockroach juice for my troubles.

A far better pursuit would be genetically modifying real life cockroaches so they do this in real life. The new species would be called Instantus Regretus.

Out of nowhere, Ashes just implemented the Bloody Mess perk from Fallout series.

I know. I noticed this in my personal playthroughs of Ashes and my gore mod and it always cracks me up. :mrgreen:

I'll see what I can do about this. This is something that needs to be taken care of from NashGore's side, not Ashes.

Just messing around with my synth (and my guitar of course) due to covid 19 lockdown.
This is my tribute to John S Weekley, Vostyok and Ashes 2063. Hope you like it.

Bloody Mess Trait confirmed. I am wondering if roaches are affected by giving them special xdeath states, that might override the "sploosh" of going to the normal xdeath state. Hmm...

I've been quite busy while I've been away, but I'm not quite ready to show off what I've been upto yet. Project is technically off its Hiatus status, but please wait for further updates. The time has not yet come.

Also, not gonna lie. That remix is pretty fucking dope. :D

Only just got around to saying this, but I loved the first episode of this TC (and Dead Man Walking) and I look forward to the next one.

Hi Vostyok!

Just passing by and wanted to thank you for this amazing work. Your mod is unique in both gameplay and atmosphere and is just competing with one other mod for my overall best doom gameplay experience so far. I'm waiting episode 2 to rank it #1 :D

Just by curiosity, you say in your intro you were heavily inspired by post-apocalyptic games and movies. While I can guess what games we are talking about, I'm a sucker for movies I may not know and I would like to know if you can share some of your favourite ones on this topic (post-apocalyptic theme). We got Mad Max movies of course but do you have others?

As for books I highly recommend the metro serie by Dmitry Glukhovsky!

Thanks again!

Episode One Sterilised Edition aren't made for vanilla, is it meant that need to use the gzdoom port?

Yes, the maps themselves use ZDoom features, the sterilized edition is just to use gameplay mods.

I started Ashes in other port, it is quite playable, although some errors are present.

To Vostyok: Thanks for suggestion. I cannot send PM yet so I thank you here.

Your comment about the easter egg for the metro serie pushed me to replay the whole mod + dmw :-D and I found the postcard room if it what you means ;-)
I also loved the escape from NY references (Plissken direct reference and also Kurt Russel cameo :p). And was that a Judge dredd reference on that map when you start facing a poster for 2063AD comics? :-D

You just know how to talk to your public, I can't get enough of your mod, really great work!

And for all those here that like me are eagerly waiting episode 2, I advise you to play the Ashes monster + weapons with the bloody Steel wad. The maps are realistic enough to fit well with Ashes spirit although they do not have that dusty atmosphere. And It's a great challenge with Ashes weapons. You will occasionally encounter a doom2 monster but that's ok and makes it even more challenging! FAL mod highly recommended for survival in > hard mode ;-)

Yes, if you create a custom "death by stomp" state, bypassing the vanilla XDeath state completely, then you won't get Bloody Roach Mess effect with NashGore.

From a technical point of view, all NashGore is doing is intercepting vanilla XDeath states.

Could tracers for bullet weapons be added in a later build?

@Tesculpture
Glad you liked it! I didn't unfortunately get to include all the setpieces and features I wanted into ep1, partly due to time and partly lack of knowledge. I'm thinking of adding these in (as well as a slightly retooled end map) into a remastered ep1 at some point. I will hopefully add a few surprises as well, but nothing major story wise, so you won't miss anything if you don't fancy replaying the first episode. I am sure John appreciates your comments on the music. The new tracks he has revealed for episode 2 are really something special. The statue will also be explained, btw. Hopefully. Heh.

@Sebrw
Reply sent by Pm. If you notice a reference to something in Ashes btw, it's a good bet its something I've watched or read recently and enjoyed.
BloodySteel is a very good wad for this. A lot of Russian wads are, I noticed. Check out Monster hunter Ltd part 1 and 2 as well.
@Camper
I do enjoy seeing your experiments. I'm working on getting this running on Qzdoom and Lzdoom for older hardware. I will have to see how that goes.

@Nash
Yes, this is what I imagined would work. It works the same in the Bolognese mod for enemies killed with fire attacks. They don't gib unless hit directly, regardless of damage. Maybe I should leave a "bloody mess" option as a cvar for those who like it. Heh.

@TheOldKingCole
Done in my current working build. All enemies shoot tracers and it seems to work well. Not sure if I will be adding this to player weapons, as projectile weapons act weird around scenery/don't quite aim where they say they do. I will experiment.

@everyone
Thank you for all the comments. Please watch this space for more news. I'm getting close to the point where I shall be revealing a bit more of the next saga of the story. :D
