What the heck is this mod?

The Shadow Mavericks MP Mod ("SMMP" for short, MP standing for both Multiplayer & Multipurpose.) is an ever-evolving, wild and wacky collection of our clan's maps and ideas. This mod is designed to be used with Zandronum 3.0+.

As the name would suggest, it is a multiplayer-centric mod that has more than one purpose; It's part weapons mod, part HD visual enhancement, part COOP/DM/DUEL/CTF/LMS map pack, part 'headquarters' mod, part class-based slugfest, part monster replacement, part joke mod, and part whatever-the-fuck-we-want. It's primary purpose though is to provide us with a base for limitless experimentation, and to allow us to make something very fun, interactive, hilarious, and addicting to play.

It doesn't follow any rules, it never takes itself too seriously, and is filled with over-the-top, bizarre, and often hilarious weapons, enemies, sounds, maps, jokes, and the occasional internet meme reference. It's the kind of mod that's best played with friends.

The mod is still considered a beta, due to the fact that a majority of the maps are incomplete or in the process of a major overhaul. [SM] members can contribute their own content such as maps, artwork, sounds, and code where I (StrikerMan780) will merge them into the project if considered high enough quality.

DISCLAIMER:

  • While the core module of SMMP is relatively safe-for-work, minus some profanity and copious amounts of gore, the extras module is free-reign content-wise. The extras module contains nudity, full-blown sexual imagery, politically incorrect/offensive humor, and plenty of foul language.
  • We've provided an "R18+" content toggle in the in-game settings to enable or disable the sexually-explicit content, it's there to use if you're in public, are streaming/recording, etc. It's also good if certain content bothers you, but you still like the mod overall.
  • With all that said, do not say to us or anyone else that you weren't warned or given the option regarding the content. If you're so thoroughly disgusted/offended by it despite being given a choice, delete it and just don't play it... don't complain to us, we don't care, we won't listen, we'll continue to do what we damn well want.

Well, work continues on SMMP.

One of the reasons it took so long for me to start back up, was that I was finally hitting the 32-bit memory limit (3.5gb) in GZDoom Builder when trying to work on the HQ map in SMMP. I've since remedied this by helping ZZYZX get a 64-bit build of GZDoom Builder going. The other big reason was hitting limitations of Zandronum 3.0 and getting fed up with it. Aside from that, I've just been working on other projects (like StrikerDM for EDuke32-OldMP), been busy with life as well; Trying to finish college, dealing with poor mental/physical health, and trying to recover.

Anyhow, with that said I'm working on it again. A lot has changed. I've gone and converted all of the mod's graphics to PNG so that it will play well with WADs that have their own palettes. I've made at least several thousand small tweaks to everything in attempts to improve performance and streamline the mod a bit.

The HUD is totally different from earlier versions, and I've also changed how demonic power works. The "utimate" ability of each class will no longer be a separate weapon, but rather a devastating ability triggered by holding "USE" and the "Special Ability" (like the Marine's flares, and Tails' spin-dash) button at the same time.

The HQ has undergone a considerable number of layout changes. Some of the outdoor area has been condensed by bringing a lot of the buildings closer together. I've also removed some rarely-noticed details like some clumps of grass to help improve framerate. In the end, this results in a more enjoyable experience, and there's much less traveling across empty space to get where you want to go.

SMMP is still being worked on, targeting Zandronum 3.0. Another release is still a ways off.

How do I get this mod working? Always gives me:

Script error, "SMMP_Core_DEV.pk7:actors/healthandarmor.txt" line 202:
Unexpected 'HealthBonus' in definition of 'MaxHealthBonus2'

^ ^ ^ Likely due to me running GZDoom, but when I try it with Zandronum, it doesn't even change the title, and gives me:

Script error, "SMMP_Core_DEV.pk7:actors/checksandtriggers.txt" line 115:
Invalid state parameter acs_namedexecutealways

One, it's not for GZDoom. Second, like it says in the description if you had read it, it is for Zandronum 3.0+.

Keep in mind folks, this REQUIRES Zandronum 3.0+ now. Running in 2.1.2 or lower will not work.
