Howdy! Noticed the last news post was dated Nov 8th. Thought it was time for a progress report.
Have a few more models to replace. The Lava Golem, Scorpman(model complete), rocket launcher, laser and cannon. Additional play testing has revealed that some of the models already in the mod might need to be changed in keeping with the mod aim of increasing the game difficulty over the serious setting.
The arachnoid was not achieving the goal. It was so large that it was too easy to hit. They also would interfere with each other more than I liked. The new arachnoid is much smaller, resulting in a viscious and aggressive new monster. If more than one gets in hand to hand distance, you better have quick reflexes. ;) The death animations were changed slightly to improve the appearance.
Due to the holiday season and other commitments and interests, the next and probably final Phase 1 version of the Happeh Mod will be released sometime in January.
