Project Re-Blood

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

Added new Voxels patch that should be loaded after the mod. :)

A total blast for when I feel like blazing through a wad as Caleb! I loved Re-Blood so being able to mix it with any wad is perfect.

Here are some issues I ran into:
1) The barrels are still invisible, and TNT sticks still have no explosions (I'm playing 1.43)
2) Three melee weapons seem rather redundant, I'd say leave the pitchfork only (since the kick is on a separate bind anyway, and the machete's sprites use unique hands that don't match with the rest)
3) Spray Can is rather useless, especially considering it's supposed to be a sidegrade to the Napalm Launcher (which is pretty much Blood's BFG). I think it should get a buff, or at least an option to disable it.
4) The Winchester is neato, but seems to be outclassed by Tommy Gun. I think it could use firing and reload speed buffs.

Hi, regarding the barrels, have you checked the r_drawvoxels option? It should be set to TRUE because the barrels are only available in voxel mode at the current state. Which version of GZdoom are you using? Thanks

I'm playing on Lightly Broiled and choking hands still cant be shaken off. At this point maybe they should just be disabled.

I went through and made a few personal modifications to this otherwise super fun mod.
  • 1. Deleted Choking Hands entirely.

    2. Stopped the spinning of the revolver after the altfire.

    3. Shortened the Spin time on the revolver on the reload.

    4 Removed all akimbo weapons from the equipment list. The Revolver Altfire is better than Akimborevolvers, and I hate the fantasy of reloading the akimbo-sawedoff.

    5. Made Pistol so it could autofire and reload without releasing the mouse buttons.

    6. Made it so the Lever Action could autofire but still fires at the same rate.
    also adjusted its ready state positioning slightly with

    Code: Select all

    {A_WeaponReady; A_WeaponOffset(-15, 28);}
    . Didn't help much but it gave it the look of more kick per shot.

    7. Undead Hunter monster was too tall at 70 units because he would get stuck on ceilings. So lowered him back to 56. Doom Note: Barons, HellKnights and Skeletons are all 56 units in Height. With Monsters you can have Radius and Height larger than their actual display rendering. to control the rendering dimensions you use: Scale xof 0.1 to 4.0, or Width only by XScale<insert 0.1 to 4.0> , and YScale for Height <insert 0.1 to 0.4>
    So:

    Code: Select all

    Height 56
    Radius 20 // actual radius rendering dimension is double this number but 20 is the standard and 40 is the fattest normal monster
    Yscale 0.9
    XScale 0.85
    //or just use Scale 0.9 if you want both X and Y to be the same stretch.
    
@Author, I can send you a copy of my modified file if you want to see it.

Hi, I’ll take into consideration all the points except for the point 4 (just because I like the akimbo weapons :D). Send me a copy in private, so that I can analyze the parameters you used. Thanks

Having akimbo weapons is fine, but they need a dedicated function so they aren't bloating the weapon slots.
