Safe zone / HQ map or mod?

Post by Netheritor »

Anyone know a mod or map that have safe zone? OR any game mechanics that can transport you to said safe zone (maybe creating one)?

The mods example that I know is: HQ in "Stronghold on the edge of chaos"; HQ in "Doom RPG"; and serpent RPG mechanics mod that has 3 shops for hexen, the full mod is called "serpent resurrection".

I'm confused. Did you just answer your own question?

If what you're asking is whether this can be done on any map on the fly without editing them, the answer is no.

I think Netheritor is looking for other mods with safe zones / HQs.

It might be possible to make a universal store/HQ mod, just give the player an inventory item on spawn that when activated sends the player to a unique map that's part of the add-on mod. The tricky part would probably be remembering what map the player was on before they activated it so the game could send them back there when they're done.

Something quickly thrown together. Press a key to go to the HQ, press another key to go back, or use normal exit in HQ.

A catch: the "HQ" map must be defined in the same cluster as the map from which you go to HQ, otherwise the state is not saved and a clustertext is displayed.

If anybody is interested in creating an actual HQ map, I can help with setting up scripts for a HQ mod.

@m8f it would be cool if map-placed items you didn't or couldn't pick up get transported to the HQ after finishing a level. This way you can stock up on health and ammo if needed.

Yes, I want to find mods or maps that has HQ beside the one I mentioned.

Also, thanks for anyone who give advice on how to transport yourself to the HQ. Even though I'm not modder or map maker.

And honestly, I even forgot I create this topic.

Hi, first of all thanks for your patience, I did not know where to contact for a question.
I wanted to use this mod for one of my projects, but I wanted to teleport through a portal, upon activation.The problem is that I cannot do this action via decorate or zscript. Can you help me? Thank you

I... Can't help you. Sorry. But I'm not a modder. Hell, I'm not even a mapper. Like I said above, I even forget this topic I created even exist.
The reason I come back here is; I downloaded your mod from moddb Pega6us. 2 Years, and someone created mod based on my question. Seems weird that your mod seems familiar to me, it's my own topic.
Originally, I asked the question of the topic because I can't happily play with doomrpg mod. Then asked if someone know another mod that transport you to the safe place but still retain the progress of previous map, probably with an inventory or hotkey. Doomrpg just... completed the map and it just restarted from the beginning. Also, who know if I become a mapper in the future.

I have another idea but... I don't think gzdoom can even create my idea. It's base building.
