Oh, yes! Thank you for reporting. Unfortunately i don't know how i can get around this issue, since weapons in Aracnocide are Inventory Items and not weapon pickups, so they'll always be picked up (think on, Soulspheres, let's say).

And good thing you bumped, so i wouldn't have to. Aracnocide is on halt until i can get in the mood to work it again. I've made a big wishlist for this and i don't think i want to update so few things after a long time. So, i know it's been long, but be patient boys. Aracnocide V5 will see the light of day and you won't regret.

Quick double bump because i would like to update the actual status of the mod.

Back like, 2 months ago, i wish i could have something ready for the new year's eve, since it's the birthday release date of the mod. Obviously, i don't have anything ready ATM. But Aracnocide is going to get some more love as soon as i work some small details in Kriegsland.

So, anyway, stay tuned around! Best wishes for you guys. Happy New year!

I think I know a way how you can pull this off. :D

Put A_CheckFlag (DROPPED, "EnterStateHere") into the pickup state, and if a weapon was dropped by a dead enemy, it will have said flag. The second parameter tells the game which state to jump to in this case. So you make another pickup state in which you define half the original amount of ammo. If you can't follow me, I can post some example code :3

As usual, there is a vídeo made for you. This time, its about the Aracnocide Weapons Pack.



I hope you like it, because I liked this version a lot.

Thank you Facínora!

Whoever is watching the video may think: "this version is so different from the original, what happened?"

I asked three friends who i know that like Aracnocide for a little beta testing. I would edit the page and show everyone what's new. But i am enjoying some national holidays at the beach and i am not even thinking about opening Slade3 until monday night. I think i deserve it, right? =p

The main link in the page isn't ready yet. Only the weapons version was uploaded by Facínora, and still, there's sone more work to do.

By monday night (or even tonight if i can), I'll update the links.

Hey, maybe just a suggestion for the mod : Within the weapons choices, I wonder if it's possible to add a M4A1 Colt (Like in the Factonum Mod) and/or some HE grenades?

...It's just some propositions, you can do whatever you want, since it's your mod...

Oh, played the demo by the way. Many sprites and functions have improved and the new class is amazing.

My only beef with it though, is the Franchi SPAS-12. That weapons feels kinda awkward and is not very punchy, particularly with the pump animation where you can notice the difference between the hand sprites.

So, see ya.

Well, wish i could, but i can't fill more weapons in. The slots are more than occupied. But i'll give weapons a bit more of treatment and maybe this won't make you regret it.

So, boys, i received a great gift from TerminusEst13 today. He did a stream with the new class, Stella Gibson in the Scimitar mapset. It's almost THREE hours of pure action! he showcases not only the new weapons, but also the upgrade system. I suggest you grab some popcorn to watch it.

I don't like to promise, but i may upload a better version to make it official in the future, so thanks for following the progress so far!

Game could definitely use a stronger "Insectonator" feel to it, maybe some larger bugs/hitboxes to make them incrementally easier to hit?

Don't worry. Whenever i release the new enemies pack, i'll make the smaller ones spawn as mobs around/from bigger insects.
