Fun fact! While we did do some minor brainstorming on many different weapon sets while they were in the lead, we did not start work on any part of 2.0 until the poll results were in.

So yeah.
Shivers and I can be a little horrifyingly efficient at times.

Oh no, I wouldn't be sarcastic about something that's fixed, or broken or needs fixing or whatever. I generally mean what I say when it comes to mod development. I can understand how you could misunderstand me though, hahahaha.

In any case, the end result of science is thus; the projectiles hit twice somehow. Very strange. But yeah, that means the railgun-based attack was doing 5 damage, and the projectiles were dealing 10 because shenanigans. They all use projectiles for dealing damage now, so all are equal. Sorry to all the people who need simple mode, you'll have to wait a bit until 2.0 is done for the fixed Maser.

Thank you for clarifying! I really didn't want to drag that out any longer but wanted to make sure everything was going to be consistent. No hard feelings; the 5inati lives on. In fact, I'll be back with a relevant pic from Credible Hulk's Facebook page.

Me and Yholl did a quick playtest, everything seems to be working nicely. [REDACTED] is the best chainsaw replacement.

Looks Hella Rad, alright! So it pinches the monsters and shock them at the same time or something?

I doubt it'd pinch. It seems to run off of cell ammo...

I'm curious will you be releasing each weapon set as they are finished, or will it all be in one batch?

OH shit, it's gonna be fun mix and matching these sets to see what happens.
Also, a little thing: Spawn BFG ammo as separate actors?

One batch. 2.0 will have three new weaponsets.

Dunno why you'd even want that. You'd be entirely reliant on RNG looking favourably upon you for BFG ammo.

Because it's actually quite fun that way... it's fun in Heretic, it's fun in Doom 3, it's fun in DOOM, it's fun in Guncaster, and it's fun in Trailblazer. It takes the hassle out of juggling massive amounts of ammo between weapons... but it also has its drawbacks, like you said.

Here's another idea... make two BFGs... one that runs off of the same ammo as the plasma rifle replacement, and another that runs off of its own ammo. If you wanna take it a bit further... instead of making each class have two BFGs, just make some of the BFGs have the more "modern" ammo mechanic, and others the more "classic" mechanic. Or take it in a different direction and give each class's BFG a firing mode that requires separate ammo, but keep the original firing mode you have as well, so that players can choose to take from the rare pool of ammo to unleash something devastating, or from their more common plasma ammo pool to unleash something somewhat less devastating.

That seems like changing something for the sake of changing it, not because it would improve upon the existing mechanics.

I actually wouldn't mind if it stayed the same. I was only giving ideas of what to do if giving the BFG a separate ammo type were to happen. It wouldn't improve on the existing mechanics... it'd just be different.

I kinda think giving the BFG it's own ammo type if anything gives the plasma guns a new lease on life. Because when you have both there's very little point in pulling the plasma gun out anymore in a lot of cases, because the BFG is just far more efficient with cell usage. I mean you can fire 80 cells at a spider mastermind at close range with the BFG or around 200 or so. One of those is objectively a better idea.

What, no! I'm talking about something like lil' battery spawning along cell/big ammo pickups. So you can get the shells without worrying about wasting potential BFG shots or vice versa.
Unless it was initial choice to not let us do that, in which case mail me directly into med bay.
