I tried to check the changelog, but you failed to update it.

That's actually true. But at least they actually wrote this one, so it's crystal clear about the update:

Would be funny to pick up the powered down enemy as an item, or at least be able to reprogram the small ones, fill their ammo with maybe cells, shells, or bullets and have them go at it.
Just a funny thought. :P

As for Guncaster, when you kill a robot with the Midas powerup active the golden statue can be a drastically different size.

They're not really powered down, they're burnt out. They ain't gonna be functioning again anytime soon.

That does sound like a cool idea though, I might add a special damagetype to them so that you can power them down and reprogram them.

Might be able to fix that, might not. Should be able to though.

Finally, Rampancy is out, and it's might be one step closer to a System Shock Total Conversion whenever possible.
Also,
"There are no hitscan attacks, all bullets from robots are projectiles."
That's another extra which i greatly appreciate.

Finally getting to try this out and I'm loving it. Pretty much all of the enemies feel great to fight and fill their own niches in unique ways. I've been playing it with Final Doomer, too, and the TNT set feels great with it - It's particularly fun when you get swarmed by sentry bots but you have a fast weapon and you get this huge swarm all collapsing and exploding one by one. I really enjoy how there are multiple versions of some enemies, too, like the maintenance bots.

There are a couple of things that I'm not too keen on, but they might be a matter of personal taste. The mini spiderbots are a cool idea but awful if they appear in swarms - I feel like they're too small and fast to hit reliably with anything that can kill more than one at a time, coupled with how they're small enough that more can crowd around you than pinkies can. I know that you can't account for every kind of encounter and enemy grouping in every PWAD, though, and that's only been a problem a couple of times. You already touched on this, but I also feel like the repair bots are a bit underwhelming as an Arch-Vile replacement; it's cool that it can kind of buff enemies and I definitely understand that there's only so much that you can do when all of the enemies just explode on death and can't be resurrected, but their actual attack isn't anything to worry about unless you get cornered, and I've only had two times where the healing actually made an enemy harder to deal with, because it happened to get into a position where it was healing faster than I could damage it (I certainly won't complain if you don't change them, but I just have opinions about Arch-Viles). One of the scout drone's sounds is painfully shrill, so I dread fighting them because they do more damage to my ears in real life than they do to my health in-game.

I love the choice of sprites (partly because I'm a huge System Shock fan) and the way that most of the enemies behave. The hit and damage effects are really satisfying because it makes it feel like you're using armour-piercing ammo and stuff on them and that your attacks are always effective. You did a great job with the customisation settings, too. Overall, I'd say that you did a fantastic job with the whole mod.

@yholl

What are the best mappacks to play this with? What were the ones you used to do the screenshots in the OP?

That has to be done on Lithium's end.

I have no idea what you're asking.

Could you let me know which one specifically? I'll try and either fix it or replace it with something else.

Can't remember what the first one was. TNT, Dark Tartarus, Memento Mori 2.

I love this monster pack, but there is a balance issue I've noticed.

The bosses, instead of having NORADIUSDMG, have a radiusdamagefactor of 0.2 - while this does make normal explosive weapons a little more effective against them, it causes massive problems for weapons that rely on FORCERADIUSDMG to be effective (the radiusdamagefactor seems to override FORCERADIUSDMG). An example is the C4 and Totenheim from Final Doomer - a vanilla Cyberdemon can be taken down with 20 C4s or a single direct hit from the Totenheim, but Rampancy's Military Bot, which has the same hitpoints from what I can see, can withstand 80 C4s and two Totenheim direct hits.

Do you have any plans to add any more robots, maybe via randomspawners? It would be awesome to have something you could shoot individual limbs off.

I have no plans for more robots right now.
Shooting off limbs is horrendously impossible amounts of work and unnecessary.

Sorry, I hadn't logged into the forum for ages. I had a look through the pk3 and it seems to be SCTDSEE2.ogg, the one with the really high-pitched fizzle sound. I admittedly have incredibly sensitive hearing, so it might just be a me problem, but thank you for looking into it.

(Funnily enough, I was also playing this with the Hellbound weapons and was completely fine with how they react to the Totenheim - the minigun feels really effective against them as it is, and I couldn't find a time when I didn't have two rockets to feed them anyway.)
