Skulltag Content (released!)

With permission from Carnevil and the Zandronum developers, Skulltag_Data.pk3 and Skulltag_Actors.pk3 has been merged into a single project, allowing Skulltag to essentially be reborn as a fully separate mod for Zandronum.

Skulltag mods now only require a single archive, Skulltag_Content*.*pk3 (* being the version, e.g. 2.1 for the version targeting Zandronum 2.1), to be loaded with your project.

In addition:
The warnings that spam the console when running or hosting Skulltag Data + Actors have been addressed in the new archive.

The PK3 has been compressed such that you can now explore all the content including the content from Skulltag_Actors with wad editors such as SLADE.

The PK3 will be actively maintained to fix any issues that are present or may emerge as Zandronum updates, and possibly add new (or forgotten) content.

Changelog:
[spoiler]====Skulltag Content Changelog=====

Merged Skulltag Actors
Removed problem flag sprites that spammed warnings in the Zandronum console
Updated maps D2DM5, D2DM6 and D2ST7 to call ThrustThing(Z) directly from sector actions for clientside prediction as suggested by unknownna
Removed faulty unnamed texture from Texture1 lump
Added a \doc directory to store documentation[/spoiler]

About Skulltag:
[spoiler]Skulltag was a multiplayer source port of Doom. Skulltag was founded by Carnevil, and was the precursor to Zandronum which is a fork of Skulltag.

Skulltag itself came with various contents in separate pk3s distributed along side it, including (from skulltag.com):

Runes, new weapons, and new monsters for modders.
50 new, well designed stock maps for any game mode.


Additionally, a large collection of textures which are still used in many mods today.

The main thing is, as Zandronum updates they occasionally update Skulltag_Actors along with it as necessary to maintain compatibility with the engine and Zandronum.pk3 (for instance it was recently updated for 2.1, but all the servers are still hosting the old skulltag_actors1-1-1.pk3 at the moment unfortunately), so any of these changes will have to be merged into Skulltag_Content.pk3. These changes are very infrequent, so it is unlikely at all that you'd need to download many, if any updates.

edit: I should add that they are planning to phase out maintaining or distributing skulltag_actors completely by 3.0 from what I understand.

Having to load less wads is always a good thing

Whatever's easiest for the players and modders.


Plus now that that stuff's not being touched anymore it's probably not necessary to seperate 'actors from 'data.

Any updates to the\a STACTORS\DATA package should use versioning.

I think the thread title is misleading, you are not releasing Skulltag, you are releasing content of it so I'd change the title to reflect it.

Somewhat debatable. From what I understand Skulltag started as a mod, and I guess that's how it will end. :razz:

Unfortunately (and oh so typically) skulltag_content2.1.pk3 contained a bug in the textures.txt lump, so anyone using this must replace it with http://www.[bad site]/download?file= ... nt2.1a.pk3

Is this 'Content' still leading for running SkullTag mods on Zandronum?If so, some remarks:

1. The Skulltagweapons.txt doesn't include the proper Weapon.SlotNumbers, so switching to the Skulltag weapons will be difficult. (As perhaps also demonstrated in https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... p33421)
2. I noticed the Skulltagweapons's Railgun is missing the "RailgunPuff", which is supposed to allow for armor piercing. Was that omitted for a reason?


*edit*

Comparing to the other skulltag_actors.pk3 I have, I see the skulltagrunes.txt definitions missing from your content too. Now, I don't have a clue about Skulltag's history, but to me it seems like your pack has SkullTag content missing?

Runes are defined internally in zandronum.pk3, as well as Skulltag artifacts (spheres), maxhealth bonus, and maxarmor bonus (but not Red Armor)

Can you please update the download URL, I am not able to retrieve the file through BE's services. I was, however, able to retrieve a copy using DevilHunter's mirror.

Thanks in advance,
