This doesn't really look like it's chase cam. More like someone turned a character model into sprites, which then were used as weapon sprites for some awkward 'hey look my gun is me holding my gun!' kind of thing

2: I would like to see the Afrit Noble recolored into the Baron of Hell.
3: I would like to see the Heresy Lord recolored into the Baron of Hell.
4: I would like to see Beyond Doom's Baron-like Nazi Replacement recolored into the Baron of Hell.
5: I would like to see the Cyber Baron edited to have Two Arm Cannons instead of one.
6: I would like to see the Cyberdemon's Baron-like Melee Attack.
7: I would like to see Realm667's Superdemon's Baron-like Melee Attack (Left, Right, and Both).
8: Same as Idea 5, but add Revenant-style Cannons to it.
9: I would like to see the Annihilator + Demolisher Hybrid.
10: I would like to see a Cyber Baron + Arachnobaron Hybrid.

Remember to post them as a full pk3 with sprites, sounds, and codes needed.
And also, post them on Best Ever File Host if you will. Thanks!

Woah, woah, woah, slow down here, buddy! This is PROJECT ideas, not MONSTERS ideas! Plus I don't know how others see this, but I find it kind of offensive that you're basically ordering a bundle of monsters as if this thread was McDonalds or something, sprite work takes a lot of time and skill to create :u

Okay, how about this idea:

Is that a project?

I have an idea! It's a multiplayer objective project called "Rise of the Triad: Domination". In this mod, there are three teams, the H.U.N.T., the Robots, and the Triad. This mod will be centered around the H.U.N.T. and the Triads competing for a certain objective. The Triad will be trying to accomplish one objective while the H.U.N.T. tries to accomplish their own. The robots, however, try to keep both teams from accomplishing their objectives, and if both the Triad and the H.U.N.T. fail, then the robots win. Because having one team have to stop two other teams from reaching their objectives is kind of unbalanced, the robots can only be harmed by explosives, and they are able to go underground and get to other areas of maps quicker. The overall story behind the mod is that each team is aiming for domination for their own reason.

As for the teams, they may have player customization (something that has never really been attempted on GZDoom or Zandronum but could be an interesting feature). The H.U.N.T. and Triad teams compose of 7 roles.

- Troop (Custom H.U.N.T. member, Low Guard default)
The troop is the most basic class. Troops carry small arms and are in charge of protecting more special classes.
- Covert (Thi Barett, Lightning Guard default)
Coverts are sneaky and of course are capable of doing many stealthy things.
- Speed Troop (Lorelli Ni, STRIKE Team default)
Speed troops are fast of course, and are able to use small to medium weapons, and dodge attacks.
- Weapons Specialist (Ian Paul Freeley, High Guard default)
The High Guard can carry medium weapons, and is also capable of destroying objectives.
- Commander (Taradino Cassett, Overpatrol default)
The commander can capture players, and can call Troops for help (AI troops)
- Heavy Weapons Specialist (Doug Wendt, Triad Enforcer default)
The Heavy Weapons is the best class for destroying objectives, and is capable of only using heavy weapons.
- Sorcerer (Custom H.U.N.T. sorcerer, monk default)
The sorcerers can only use magical weapons. They are also capable of becoming super-powered.

As for the robots, all robots are a normal patrol robot, but they can also be super powered?

Super powered is when the class becomes extremely powerful after accomplishing some task. The H.U.N.T. Sorcerer will go on God Mode, the Triad Sorcerer will turn into El Oscuro, and the robot will become NME. The duration or wether or not the player will become invincible is not determined yet.

I like the idea but I think that three teams are way too much for Zandro community because bots cannot do objectives. A more standard approach with one team having an objective and second team trying to prevent it from being completed is more manageable since your player base is 4 (2 vs 2) as opposed to 2 vs 2 vs 2 (at least). I dunno whether such mod exists for Doom, it definitely exist in other games like SW Battlefront (rebels are trying to get some package to the extraction point, Imperials are stopping them) and is quite popular (but only in case there are not much crappy players who are hording frags instead of completing objectives).

I am not sure what do you mean. You mean some kind of customized loadout which can be changed on spawn? Such mod exist - Real Guns Hardcore, basically a CoD:MW. It has even a levelup systém for SP with some SP unique perks.

I am not familiar with the RotT so I cannot comment on the classes. I only played the shitty 2013 remake which honestly was so bad that one would rather commit suicide rather to play it, but I heard the original game was good.

Well, the thing is that many games/mods are just two teams but having three would make it unique, although I agree it isn't very managable for Zandronum's community size.

As for player customization, I actually mean appearance. Sure it would probably require a bunch of decorate jumps but hell, I bet its possible if one sets their mind to it. Then again, it does seem pretty much impossible to do.

Yeah, the original is pretty good, but you could probably tell that I'm a big RoTT fan from looking at my avatar.

Actually it's possible. Take a look at the Cata-Wepz mod by Catastrophe. You can tell what weapon player is wielding just by looking at his sprite, because there are numerous skins depending on the equipped weapon. Although it would require a lot of sprites, it's obviously possible to have player look different depending on for example his inventory items.

Posting in the ideas thread because that's about what this project is at the moment. I want to make a multiplayer TC based on Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri. I've already got a whole bunch of code for mouse cursor interfaces, moving guns that fire through a free cursor and whatnot so some of the work is already done.

Gameplay wise you pilot your exosuit/mech while giving orders to AI teammates. The missions would work like in flight sim games where obectives are generated and the level is populated by use of scripting on startup.

If anyone is interested in working on this with me, send me a pm here or on the zdoom forums :cool:

Here's an early development screenshot with placeholder graphics:

I got the idea of making a classic Tomb Raider style mod. So I decided to make a small proof of concept map with some TR stuff in it including a lot of jumping and grabbing and platforming and TR inspired traps such as spikes and giant boulders that will crush you. Check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYzJJc408LE.

I really like what I see in that proof of concept video Thomas, the gameplay look great and I think i recognize some of it from something else you made, such as the ladders.
If you decide to make a full project out of it yourself I will gladly provide some help where I can after the rest of my exams. :)

There is a doom raider wad, but it's older so it only has dehacked and no ledge grabbing (thus less platforming). The new weapons and monsters were good as the vanilla content gets boring in new drastic gameplay-altering wads.

And then when the flowers bloom they can sell them and get money. Except they have to spend it on gardening tools and water to grow flowers, so it's not like they can just fill their base with crocuses and tulips, they also have to rationalise what little money they can afford to spend.
And they also can buy rabbits and have them as pets. Except rabbits eat flowers, so that means they earn less the more pets they have, but the pets are adorable. Oh, and maybe have something like 'the fluffiest bunny' competition every couple of minutes, and the winning pet's team gets 250$ as a reward? That would be neat, but a bit difficult to script. Unless the winner pet would be chosen randomly, but that would kill all the fun

Holy crap I'd freaking come back to Doom for that kind of mod

Edit: Players also should be able to throw bunny poop at their enemies' bunnies to make them uglier

I have an idea for a project I really would like to make but Im afraid I can't do it myself.
It would be an invasion project, where player classes would be warriors of various religions (Crusader, Arabian Swordsman, Shaolin Monk, etc.), each having
a special ability that would restore their health, with praying-like effect, and this ability would come with a long cooldown.
Maps would look as religious places (Church, Mosque, Pagoda, etc.), which the players would have to defend, while inside these buildings, there would be a core that must not be destroyed.
And finally, the attacking monsters would be some representatives of evil for these religions - demons for Christianity and Judaism, Efreets for Islam etc.

If I announced such a project, would anyone like to participate?

PS: This would-be-project is not inspired by my programming skills...but the current situation of the world where one religion does not trust another.

You're courting controversy with that idea, to put it mildly.

Who cares. Somebody was hosting a Columbine Massacre mod the other day and 2 people were playing it.

Then there's the masterpiece that is Moonman Doom. Can't forget Night of the Homeless, either.


Doom mods are obscure enough that even an intentionally-offensive mod won't get any media attention, so I think a crusader/holy war type thing wouldn't phase anybody.

Speaking of offensive, I thought about naming a map "The Adam Lanza Sandy Hook Extravaganza".

Actually, controversy would provide publicity, so whatever really. Besides, the mod is about representatives of the different religions working together rather than killing each other, so I'd say it would show off positive aspects rather than negative aspects. Not that the media would care, that is.
Roll with it if you want Madcat, just be ready for a possible shitstorm from somewhere random. ;)

I think western media would not care at all about this. Most probably the islamists would not be happy about letting jewish and cristians into a Mosque, but screw that. All they can do about it is to explode in the comments and that fortunately cost no one a life.
