True, I viewed it more as this was what you really wanted to make, since you can see bits and pieces of the old mod in there. Great work on this one though! It still kind of has that vanilla+ feel that's hard to find in mods these days.
Congrats on the new release!
Kind of a bummer about the health/armor bonuses not applying over max HP, but I guess it has to balance out with gibbing enemies now. Is there a way to get some sort of middle ground on it so we can still overheal somewhat? Some of the necro enemies hit pretty hard.
I actually like how you've done this more. The shotgun was the most frustrating reload in the original, the others aren't too bad. The pistol and SMG last long enough that you can get a decent rhythm in. I kind of miss the pump shotgun, but I can see why you merged them since we had 3 different ones before and the auto wasn't that useful.
Thanks for speeding up the double barrel shotgun from your old mod as well! Much more satisfying to use now.
Cool, an update! Anything big in it?
Great mod, thanks for making this compilation! It seems a bit more put together than CoM right now, easier to find everything as well.
One question I had though, is there a file that explains what all the addons do? Something like complicated economy sounds interesting, but I have no idea what it actually does.
Neat, looks kind of like a Quake shambler turned into a bullsquid,
Does anyone have a working link to this? The torrent is dead and the Google Drive is empty of files.
Also any chance of a torrent link?
So is this built on top of the Cinematic mod? So you'd only need this and it would have everything? When the demo parts run out, does it just revert back to regular CM?
I'm impressed there's any mods at all for this! I wish they'd make another one, The Thing is a great concept for a game if you do it right.
I'm glad you posted this here so more people get to play it! I've played Doomzone for awhile, downloaded off your site and it's good to see you keep coming back and updating things. This has always been a go to mod for me whenever I play new Doom levels.
Any chance of using some of the actual FEAR weapon sounds, or something like them, for the Pointman's guns? To be honest not all of them are good, but the pistol, SMG, and shotgun always sounded pretty beefy.
When it says "removed neutral areas," what does that mean? Are those people still there, but other factions can take over the rookie village, etc?
Yeah, your starting armor is really the limiting factor. I had the same problem running around in the starter loner coat, where even dogs could kill me in a hit or two. Once I upgraded to a proper clear sky suit I barely take damage from most things unless it's a volley of assault rifle fire to the chest or something.
Yeah, I think a better way to go about it is to give the player more options for increasing the carry weight, rather than buffing the base one much. I think the original Misery suits had different carry weights as well, to represent different amounts of pouches, straps to support the armor, etc, not sure if that carried over to CoM with OA.
Everything seems to be working okay so far. The tweaks are pretty good overall, artifact hunting in particular did need a buff, same for stashes having crappy loot. The carry weight feels a little bit high, but not too bad.
Do we need to have all of Axebeard's tweaks for this to work, or is it okay with only some? I've got his Fieldcraft mod, but only parts of the tweak mod, like the better flashlight, etc.
Thanks, this never really made sense to me. Damaged/worn guns, yeah. But unless every gun conveniently gets shot mid-firefight most of them are going to be in working order.
Thanks. Yeah I've definitely been doing backups just in case. Luckily it's pretty easy to get everything working again as long as you save the downloads. No all day Elder Scrolls style modding.
So just to confirm the install order (for STCOM+OA), is it:
CoM>STCOM>Outfit Addon>Axebeard's Fieldcraft>small tweaks?
So you'd drag and drop the base gamedata folder from this, then the compatibility patch for STCOM + OA over it?
Thanks for posting this here, you've been really helpful merging all this stuff over in the /vg/ thread. Is this stuff compatible with an existing game, or would you have to start over for it? And does this no longer include OA, or does it have all you need already in there in the merge?
Pretty good mod so far. I think ammo rates could use a slight tweak though. I noticed I was getting a lot of ammo from zombies, like 30 buckshot, got 70 9MM once.
Would this be compatible with Call of Misery?
Thanks for making a separate page for this! CoM seems like such a weird project, since it started out english with the original mods/addons, then went Russian, and has to go back to English now. Hopefully everything gets translated again eventually.
That's actually something that's always bothered me. I'd rather Loners and Bandits just not even be a "joinable" faction, but just a state of being if you don't fit into another actual faction. CS made things weird by turning Loners into Defiance or whatever.
Are you talking about the Horde guys? I don't really like them either. I like the idea of them, but I think they need a lower cap on how many can spawn, because it gets out of control and lags maps out pretty quickly.
That'd be a good way to stop the player from exploting the armor/weapon drops at a low level. Looks a little weird to still have the DB helmet though.
I'd love to win a copy of the game.
Yeah it sounds fine now that I've played a few levels with it.
What other things do you intend to add? I'm hoping Mark leaves out the flipping demons off and other goofy stuff from the mod, since BD64 is a nice blend of original and BD so far.
EDIT: The footsteps actually aren't too bad in-game, I think they seemed louder to me in the video for some reason.
Looks pretty good so far. I think the footsteps are slightly too loud, though; they could be lowered by like 25-33% I think, at least.
The Doom 3 sounds are always a nice touch. The only one I've never really been a fan of is the Imp, particularly the deaths creams. It gets grating sometimes if you kill a bunch of them in a row since it's so high pitched.
