Rampancy - [2.0]

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.

The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

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

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

Yeah, I get that. But the main question is Why did the Ion Blaster put up white numbers, but the Repeater Gun blue numbers, if the Ion Blaster is the one that's dealing the EMP damage, not the Repeater Gun?
I already told you. Ion damage in Rampancy is set to white. The Ion Blaster in the Star Wars mod does Ion damage.

It's slow, its attack is nowhere near as threatening as regular Archies, it's not very aggressive, it seems slightly less durable, and even if it's able to repair other robots, its sluggishness doesn't seem conducive to its medic powers and it doesn't seem to prioritize its healing duties.
It was never designed to act like an Arch-vile, nor intended to do so. And your last statement is incorrect, the only time it ever isn't trying to heal something is if there's no other robots, or you got right up in its grill. It doesn't like that at all.
Also the fact that maps set themselves up with Arch-viles as OH CRAP moments makes their entrance absolutely hilarious and I love it.

I might increase their speed when they've detected something to repair.
I am definitely not increasing their healing capacity, it's extremely high at max difficulty. A tanky robot like a Maintenance Bot with one of these behind it might as well be nigh invincible.
I won't increase their combat ability either, they are not combat robots.

I apologize if I came off as pushy about the Medibot. It's your mod, so do as you will with it. I was just surprised to see a not-BS replacement for the Archie for once.

As a counterpoint to J's comments on the little spiders, I think they're a pretty clever pinky replacement because they fill the same role but with different methods. Pinkies forcibly block your attacks with their bulk, whereas the spiders draw your fire by being annoying little ankle biters that make one of the worst noises I've ever heard. Either way, you're not shooting at the other things in the room, you're focusing on them.

They're very effective because I find myself dropping everything to deal with the spiders when they show up. I hate those little bastards. But it's a good kind of hate. :V

I half-agree your with point. As clever, new, unique and annoying it is really, i still miss those meat shield-y brutes in some certain monster closet. Original Pinkies tend to make the fight a little more longer, especially in The Ultimate Doom.

Working fine here.

No need to apologize! Forum threads exist so people can share their thoughts.

Ah, cool. :D I just need to figure out a good megawad for this one. I think I recall someone working on a set called "Oops, All Techbases," but I'm not sure what happened to that. Or maybe I'll finally get around to Back to Saturn X E2, the lazy ass.

ADD: Oh, wait, here's "Oops! All Techbase." Has anyone given Rampancy a spin with this one? https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/1 ... ease-rc22/

Really love to play this mod now, the enemies have a certain charm to them that just makes it fun.
Also btw I pieced together a way for the repair bot to work without changing the friendly flag if you'd like.

With some friend mods they don't target the repair bot outside of it's angry range. That may be intended though?

I really appreciate the CVARs you added to this mod. I was just about to critique a couple of points and then realized you already had thought of everything. If there's one thing I can add is that the large floating robot did not quite look as high-teired or aggressive as I'd imagined them being when they shot me. Maybe it's due to their sfx, I'm not sure. I will definitely be spending a lot of time playing this mod. And if anybody could please name some more fitting "futuristic" moor techbase-heavy maps it would be much appreciated!

To be fair, Sonic did the same thing as well. Every single Badnik he steps on, they explode in violent way possible.

The repair bot (archvile replacement) doesn't respect the mapinfo health modifier. Setting MonsterHealth = 5 causes the bot to spawn with 500/2500 health.
Something has to be done about the cyberdemon 'scanning'. Any time there's a cyberdemon on a level you get to hear 'scanning area' every 20 seconds.

This is an absolute masterpiece. Love the robo-dialogue, the robo-projectiles and all of the robo-explosions!

Yeah, nothing will really try and deal with it if it's not actively being a threat.

Can't fix, engine shenanigans.

I'll increase the attenuation.
