Well... a working prototype with most enemies having a few random cyber replacements which seems mostly stable, is done. SO! I myself tested it out with Lithium 1.5.3 and Diabolus Ex - so that could be a good start for those whom are interested in checking it out. = )

Let me know what you think guys, and if there are any strange bugs, or clean-up of the code which I need to do! (oh there definitively is... definitively.)

I highly recommend you to create new thread and rename this addon to "Your Monster Randomizer" while crediting DoomKrakken as the creator of the code it has been based off.
As for the mod itself, haven't found any issues, it's just another good randomizer to my collection. Just repack all files to the root of the archive not to the redundant copied folder :)

You know what? I think I'm going to do that quite soon, man! = ) I've done many additions and alterations since last time - it's probably time to let more of the world actually see what I'm working on here.

LOL! Sorry man... But I'm nerfing the crap out of most monsters! ; ) I'm also altering behaviour, changing hit-scanners to projectile monsters - also looking into adding a few sounds and effects here and there.

Nerfing is kind of necessary in a randomiser-mod, because otherwise certain maps can become nearly unplayable for the target-audience of my remix: N00b's to Doom. (i.e myself)

B-but... isn't randomizer meant to be played with mods that make you OP naturally? ;<<<<<<<<<<<<

Any chance you can make altered version where all monsters are default?? Nerfing is one thing, but changing behavior and switching hitscan to ez2dodge projectiles... That's a bit too much to call a challenge. Altered version with only original\default monsters, plz?

Just a quick heads up:
DoomKrakken has given me his blessing to continue working on this mod. I'm currently slowly rebuilding the mod from scratch, starting with the normal version (not the GC specific variant). I'm revisiting the monster variants, adding some new ones, scrapping some others, rebalancing them so that it is also fun to play in vDoom, etc etc. No clue on any release date, as I am slowly learning Doom modding while doing this.

I am not sure if it is wise to continue my progress in this thread, or it is better to just start a new thread. Any advice would be helpful :)

Its great that you have gotten permission to proceed with developing this! I am very interested to see where you take things. I understand the need to balance things with a more vanilla gameplay style, but at the same time part of the appeal with this specific monster randomizer was it's difficulty. There's a lot of rather OP weapon addons out there that this paired quite well with. It's quite helpfully reeling in the power fantasy feel of gameplay mods like guncaster or russian overkill. So long as that difficulty increase is still attainable, I personally welcome some balancing. As for a new thread, I don't know what to recommend. Perhaps release updates on progress here until you have an actual playable release, then open a new thread for it? Then again, I can see the wisdom of starting fresh since you are remaking the mod from the ground up. Either way, I'd hold off until there is a bit more to show, then build interest in a new thread all its own. Just my two cents. Good luck with things, and thank you for taking the reigns!

I'd say new thread would be needed, since this project originally meant to be GC addon. Not sure if the dude changed his mind in the mid process of it, though.
