The video shows some action with the Spikeclaw monster and the new metal texture set. There are two parts in the video: first part show what Spikeclaws do when they don't know player and second part shows what they do when they know player.

Finally I got the first demovideo done. It shows the Spikeclaw monster in action. They're fast and dangerous. They can catch a running player without any trouble. The idea is to shoot them before they get too close. Now the weapons punch monsters around. For some reason that was a player only feature in Quake. Similarly the monsters get damaged from hazardous liquids now. They're not able to swim yet, but they will eventually.
Damage system has been updated. It includes damage type resistances without armor and with armor. It allows to make a character or armor immune to certain type of damage, or to take more damage. Armors can get destroyed at different rate than what they protect. For an example, armor that protects 100% of the damage could absorb all the damage without a scratch and armor that has little protection might be easily destroyed as well.
Here is the video, I hope you like it:
