[Abandonded] "Man Is The Warmest Place To Hide"

Projects that have specifically been abandoned or considered "dead" get moved here, so people will quit bumping them. If your project has wound up here and it should not be, contact a moderator to have it moved back to the land of the living.

Could the shotgun be made to not pump every time it's selected?
For the first time it's good, but it would be nice if it was one time only.
Sometimes I want to select a shotgun and use it and not wait an extra second.

And also what's the deal with the two "backpack" belts the player starts with?
They give a lot of shells, but barely any bullets.

Love the new weapons in this update. Are you planning to cover the other monsters like the Archvile or the boss monsters?

Ooooooo this mod is cool. I always thought a doom mod based on The Thing would be cool, and this certainly doesn't disappoint. Couple suggestions though, based on about a half hour of playing:

-The shotgun pumping every single time it's selected needs to go. It's unnecessary, slows the player down, and feels way too "action"-y to fit the tone of the mod.
-On a similar topic, the shotgun's firing sound feels kinda weak, and could use a little more oomph.
-The option to burn corpses to prevent them from getting back up or spawning scuttlers would be a very cool mechanic.
-The reload animations for some guns could use some more bells and whistles, even if it's just manipulating offsets. Though more sprites and detailed animations would be great.
-This could be just me, but the player's hands combined with the use of ketchup give way too much of a Brutal Doom vibe, and kinda put a damper on the horror atmosphere. Perhaps different assets for the gore and/or different hands could work better.
-This is a nitpick, but the fact that some of the sprites are using the same names as vanilla sprites creates some issues with brightmaps.
-The marine chatter on the PDAs could stand to be quieter or have a longer delay between voice clips, because while they do certainly help the ambiance, the frequency and volume quickly makes things sound more chaotic than I would like. A bigger variety of clips would be cool too.

And that's all the suggestions and criticisms I got! Don't get me wrong though, I really enjoyed my time with this mod, and I am very excited to see this develop

- Yeah probably i will remove it
- I will replace the sounds with the ones from CS 1.6 in the next version
-What weapons specificaly?
-I will not replace the hands or the gore, maybe i will add a sleeve to the hand sprites but bothing more
- Hmmm i will look ove that
- Maybe is ignorance but i dont know how to lower the volume on the sounds, do you know of a way? Also there is 2 types of PDA with different chatters maybe i will add more in the future
- About the corpses, sounds like a good idea but my decorate skills are not good enough, maybe i will look into BD destroyable corpses to have an idea

Thanks for having fun with the mod!

I was thinking that pretty much all of the reloading animations across the board could use a facelift, since most of them just kinda move down, make a noise, then move back up. I believe you can lower the volume through the SNDINFO lump, but the ZDoom wiki should have your answer. And I think the addition of a sleeve to the hands would be cool. Hell, I think the addition of various snow-related things would be pretty cool, like snow, people wearing big winter coats instead of doom marine armor, maybe some wind sounds for ambiance or even a new skybox. Dr Cosmobyte's Nightshift mod is a solid example of what I'm talkin' about

I was thinking of using the Artic wolf player sprites but that would also mean that i would need to replace all of the dead marines sprites and the Dying Marine ones
