Volatile is a 15-20 map pack for ZDoom that will totally get finished someday maybe yeah.
Maps will have very non-linear layouts and focuses on adventure rather than spamming thousands of revenants at you, though it will also fall sideways to dropkick beneath your belt when you least expect it to.
There'll be quite heavy use of ZDoom features, including custom monsters and probably weapons (when I get around to doing that) though I'm hoping to put in some compatibility mechanism so that you can still play it with mods.
The project has basically existed for eternities (since 2011) under an infinite number of names but let's hope I get it finished now shall we?
Regardless of that, looks quite nice. I am seeing a few wall textures where flats should be (examples: the gray rocks in shots 1 and 4); personally I think it would look a lot better if corresponding flats were used. Interested to see how this plays, though. You say it'll focus on "adventure", and I hope you'll still be able to make it enjoyable and not have the maps just drag along. Some sets go for the "adventure" feel and the gameplay really suffers as a result...
Anyways, looking forward to getting my grubby little hands on this!
The "adventure" part mostly comes from that I'm trying to put some kind of inbuilt ""story"" to it, mostly some sort of progression and text screens (maybe episodes, not sure on that yet) and from the non-linear layouts... I have no idea what I'm talking about.
I know the purple's a bit lacking for now but I'll be putting more of that in.
Posted a map lineup of sorts. It's pretty apparent that episode 2 is progressing pretty well (indeed by far most of the screenshots in this thread are from it) and episode 1 is in many little pieces. This is because I originally wanted to do just a deep space episode but that went to hell because I can't organize anything. So what I'm planning on doing is trying to piece together some kind of episode 1 (I actually have an idea for its later episodes now that I think of it), pick up some old maps for it and stuff.
Ah yes. Now I can also use the fireblu torches. Also now that I think of it, the space station is supposed to orbit Earth. Which means that I'll need a suitable new sky... maybe I'll just nick the one from Lunatic.
Oh yeah and I am planning one or two more episodes after this but let's focus on these two now shall we? I'll try get them both released at the same time so we can have lots of fun playtime from the beginning. Or something like that.
Hey nutsackhat what's up with this stupid random bump you just posted in your thread
Fine fine have some screenshots. Including a few from space now that we actually talked about that.
