INTRODUCTION

Vandomizer is a vanilla randomizer mod for GZDoom. By "vanilla randomizer", I mean that the mod does not include any custom weapons or monsters - rather, it merely randomizes the pre-existing Doom things. The mod provides three different modes of randomization:

Same tier enemy and ammo spawns - Enemies are randomized based on the "tier" of the original enemy, with the enemies categorized into five different tiers based roughly on their health and relative threat level. Ammo pickups are randomized based on the amount given by the original pickup. Everything else is randomized normally, with the exception of keys.

All enemy and ammo spawns - Enemies are fully randomized, with no restrictions on which enemy can spawn. Ammo pickups are fully randomized. Everything else is randomized normally, with the exception of keys.

TOTAL F***ING CHAOS - Everything is randomized with no restrictions, with the exception of keys. Beatability is not guaranteed.

Vandomizer requires GZDoom 4.3.0 at a minimum to run. It is currently compatible with the following IWADs:

  • doom.wad

Fantastic mod. Brings me back to the ol' D!Zone randomizer, only yours has way better balance and options.

Any chance you could update this to work with Freedoom? GZDoom throws an error trying to find the SpawningHandler class.

Freedoom compatibility isn't planned at the moment, but I'll consider it.

Thats SUCH a cool mod. But doesnt work in zandronum and monster packs. Did you think about making a similar mod but as an addon for D4T or something? When Kar En Tuk comes out i think it will be possible to make a randomizer for it.
Also i would like to see the "affect pickups" option separately: sometimes i want to make a wad harder and more unpredictable in terms of monster placement
GREAT WORK!

The reason it doesn't work in Zandronum is because the mod is implemented in ZScript rather than DECORATE, and Zandronum has no ZScript support whatsoever. The readme specifically states that the mod requires GZDoom 4.3.0+. I figured that'd be a strong enough hint that it's extremely unlikely to work in anything else. If anyone wants to attempt porting this to Zandronum, I'm not going to stop them, but from where I'm personally standing, I have no interest in making a version of Vandomizer for an inferior source port with horrendously outdated DECORATE support.

As for compatibility issues with monster packs and other mods, those are an unfortunate side effect of the way the mod handles the replacement stuff, and I'm sadly not planning to "fix" that either.
