Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

I hate double posting but I wanted to report a possible issue with this mod regarding Ultimate Doom support. I've had some Doom 2 monsters spawn in as invisible (Heavy Chaingunner, Pain Elemental, and Hell Knight) but still able to attack me while others don't seem to have this issue (like the Revenant).

At the very least I can turn off the spawn rates for the Doom 2 enemies in Ultimate Doom to keep this from happening but I felt like it was still something worth bringing up in case there was anything that can be done about it. :P

There is an option in the latest release that shuts that stuff off completely, or you can look up the probability ratings of undesired creatures and switch them off that way (you know, in case you still don't want Revenants and Arch-Viles stinking up MAP 01 for you!)

That said, this mod reminds me very much of the first Turok game on the N64, which I played to death as a kid (but I hated the choppiness of the second game, which I hear got remedied in the Steam HD release). In Turok, which did play out much like Doom in having a skeleton story to get you started, after you nailed the local creature population, sticking around only netted you "Nightmare" respawns of the same threats well after they dissolved into nothing, thus saving the map maker some face and preventing total boredom as you were pushed into moving on and away from eventual reinforcements.

This Mod does exactly that. It actually keeps you on your toes and helps to recycle any given boring '94 map by offering a fresh coat of paint. It also works with virtually any mod because it's so alien, miscellaneous and stand-alone that nobody can complain about it not working. If it is going to spawn something from SIRENS, for example, if it will spawn the Former Human, it spawns a neophyte instead. The fact that everything is adjustable prevents gameplay imbalances since SIRENS' "Former Human" takes many more hits and seems a little more accurate with her spells.

In other words, this is one of the best mods nobody has ever heard of and I hope that it continues to bug-fix as time goes on!

I made an edit of this mod that is custom-tailored to Hideous Destructor's varied enemy and item sets, for those so inclined. I'd be happy to share the mod here, with Laggy's consent.

EDIT: Also, I took the advice of that first dude about the options menu, and made it so you can always find DCS options in the options menu.

Thanks, that's exactly what i'm looking for, tired of getting lost in maps without nothing to do.

It's been more than a year and I just noticed rocket launcher spawners weren't working. What the heck?
It was a small typo, but it's fixed now.

http://static.allfearthesentinel.net/wa ... v0.05d.pk3 - Regular version.
http://static.allfearthesentinel.net/wa ... onmenu.pk3 - DCS options are located in the options menu. GZDoom only.
http://static.allfearthesentinel.net/wa ... nomenu.pk3 - DCS options can only be accessed through console. (openmenu dcsmenu)

I have plans for an actual update but I've been busy finishing University stuff. Maybe in a few weeks.

I never even realized the Rocket Launcher Spawner wasn't happening, but then again, I shut those off because I don't need a bunch of Rocket Launchers; I expect levels to have those (and when I don't I usually shouldn't need one anyway).

This really gives me some Bioshock/System Shock memories where you never know when and where an enemy is going to respawn in the entire area, amazing job and glad it is compatible with most mods I have checked! :D
