Everything about this is perfect except for a few things:
Shotgun sound is really weird
Maps lag too much (1050Ti and 7300HQ)
Akimbo guns need a separate hotkey like Doom Incarnate does

Other than those things, this is great so far.

The cultists and fanatics can fuck you up really fast. You've already made a lot of great small improvements and revisions to the Blood gameplay, I think it would work well if all hitscan enemies were changed to fire fastprojectiles.

Not sure about that. I mean, the hitscanners in Blood were also bastards. They shoot on sight, and keep shooting while they can. This was a problem that even survived to Blood 2.

Maybe the Blood feeling go away with fast projectiles-cultists. But, anyway, maybe it deserves a try.

Blood's hitscanners were always a pain in the ass to deal with and with bad level design they could even become part of an unfair and unbalanced encounter. But it's fine if you want to preserve bad ideas for the sake of tradition.

It's more so than they fire near-instantaneous rather than aiming first. Just give them the same reaction time as a shotgunguy, it's what I did to my cultists

Hitscanners are not a bad idea, man. Or it'd be bad in other games as well.
A too small reaction time, however, is a bad idea. It makes the encounters unfair.
It is notable that Blood manages to be good even with this problem. Blood 2 couldn't do the same.

I anyway, I'm not saying I'm against(*) a try with fast projectiles. Maybe it could really improve the gameplay, and make the mod better. My fear about it is losing that Blood 1 feeling that the mod so far is able to maintain even with the new features. But, again, maybe it worth experimenting.

:)


(* Which would not matter anyway, if I'm agaisnt o in favor a feature,... as I'm not a dev anyway :mrgreen: )

Good stuff, but there is a chance to relase standalone version for zblood/zbloodyhell?

I love it when fellow bloodites make mods!

The maps feel very interesting, weapons are very close to vanilla. monsters not so much. if possible...

-make monsters move in a straight line to the player
-make rats not count or make them attack the player
-flare gun now has a reload but lacks the very useful altfire. I would say make each flare blast faster, do a SMALL amount of explosion damage comperable to a pistol shot, and also release a small explosion of flame damage in a small radius that catches a small group on fire. either that or work out an alt.

this is pretty neat!

Please don't make rats attack the player, they were one of the enemies in the original game that were objectively terribly designed.

This is awesome :D !
Even if there is only one and a half map done you really nailed the atmosphere and the maps are greatly designed as well!
I kinda fell that Caleb was a little heavy to control in comparison to Blood but it wasn't too bad neither.

I'll be looking forward the progress of this mod! ^^

One and half map done?.. No! There is more maps, that fully working!.. Check out MAP07, MAP26 (Can be chosen through menu), MAP27, MAP29, MAP30, MAP31, MAP32. Just type into console "map *mapname*" (For example: "map MAP29"). Hope you like them!.. :)

Pretty sure Map02 is incomplete.
