I suggest the health packs staying put too. It fits the game with a more quake-ish feeling.

My only complaint is the constant flame sound when the shotgun is equipped, which is kinda annoying for me. Maybe lower the volume a bit more or remove it completely.

Oh, and if anyone cares: No problems running this mod with Zandronum 3, at least not with the version I'm currently using.

I have one suggestion for balance reasons, Make the primary fire for the SSG both barrels firing and make the secondary fire the single barrel shot. It just feels weird to have It the other way around.

Agreed, it always feels clunky to have a single shot on the primary.

I feel the exact opposite way - primary fire is typically bound to the index finger and thus implies greater precision.

Of course, I also make far, far more use of the SSG killing 2 guys at a time rather than overkilling 1 guy and getting shot/running away helplessly (or, more typically, getting shot by both of them while trying to get them both in the doubleshot death cone), so I'm biased.

That's not what the supershotgun Is about, It was specifically designed to take out medium enemies and act as sort of a crowd control for smaller guys likes zombies and imps. The shotgun Is the one you want to be using against groups of imps, zombies, etc. It's also faster and more ammo efficient with the exception of this mods flamethrower which works good with panic firing when you get cornered by pinkys or other vermin. Although I am biased myself when It comes to the shotguns.

Classic, decent and interesting mod! It's been fun touching weapons and killing monsters. But i've found some problems to talk about;

- Nice touch on pistol when lacks ammo while pressing Alt-Fire. But the problem is It only fire once even though i only had 3 rounds and i still can use them all up. But nope, it just fires once because my ammo is still not enough.

And i have no idea why is it still accurate, making Primary fire a bit useless.

- Service SMG Mk.II's zooming is kinda awkward; it doesn't zoom further enough and still inaccurate, but with slow firerate. It makes Primary fire more useful to me.

- Don't you think Plasma Combat Rifle is overwhelming? I mean, i can kill baron with one shot.

- BFG 2704's Alt-fire is pretty underwhelming. I mean the sound effects are nice and such, but it sounds like projectile has no powerful sound effects at all.

- Berserk Kit is WAY TOO LARGE! For real man, i guess?

- Heavy Assault Rifle's Missile, Precision Railgun, Plasma Combat Rifle's Projectile and BFG 2704's Alt-Fire Projectile has no decal at all.


And that's about it. Really fine mod to play with. Nice job!

I seem to have found a bug, if you switch weapons while zoomed in with the railgun, you get permanent night vision until you switch back to the railgun and zoom in and out.

The SMG on the cover art is one of them, if everything goes as I expect. But not all of them.

Thanks for the appreciation Cap! Most of those issues (exceot for the BFG2704 sound) will be fixed for the 2.5 that will be coming soon, with a Chaingun in place of the SMG. But she'll will return on the v3 (btw I huge fan of your sprite work). I'm not a huge fan of decals though.

Thanks for the test bud, I'll be sure to include this next time (and I can lower a bit the sound too). I'm more of singleplayer guy.

And finally, I'll not touch on the SSG. She'll stay as it is.

No, it can be played with any Monster Pack/WAD. You'll only have issues if the wad have custom weapons (but nothing a little patch from yours truly can't solve).

Is it also possible to disable the grenade launcher and railgun in-game? Sometimes when I use the mod and then play MAP 30 of Doom 2, I sometimes get the grenade launcher instead of the rocket launcher, thereby making the game unwinnable since the grenade launcher fires in an arc, making it really hard to hit inside the boss' brain.

Hi there! I’ve been lurking on this forum the past couple of years, using and enjoying the amazing mods this creative community seems to crank out on a near regular basis. Well, after having enjoyed your mod so thoroughly and seeing you were looking for feedback, I figured it was high time I make an account and finally see if any feedback I could give is useful to you and the other fine modders here.

First off, let me say that for a mod that’s only in Version 2, you’ve done a great job with balancing. I’ve certainly played mods with worse balancing and yours is doing pretty well thus far. That being be said there some things that could be improved upon. Other people have already covered some of these but I figure it can’t hurt to say it again. I’ve also spoilered each them so the post isn’t just a gigantic eyesore.

Rocket Launcher
Spoiler:

Grenade Launcher
Spoiler:
Shotgun Alt-fire
Spoiler:
Already heavily discussed SMG
Spoiler:
"Precision" weapon suggestion
Spoiler:
Anyway, those are my thoughts on your mod thus far, BRS. Sorry for the length of the blocks, but I’ve been playing your mod more than any other lately and I genuinely want to see this mod get better and figured maybe a bit of detail couldn’t hurt. Other than that, I’m eager to see what you have for us next! :)
