Advanced engine needed : Any limit-removing engine that doesn't require
IWAD sprite merging is recommended.
Primary purpose : Sprite replacement. I guess that makes it
Title : The Plasticine Cacodemon
Filename : PLASCACO.WAD
Release date : 13/3/2009

Misc. Author Info : Just a fella minding his own business.
Description : A replacement set of sprites for the Cacodemon.
The novelty is that the sprites were produced
starting from photos of a self-made static
plasticine model of a cacodemon, just like id
did. The model was based on the id original,
but is different in its own way. Try to see ;-)
Additional Credits to : TimeOfDeath for saving me the time of making
the included test map (heh). To the Doomworld

since the beginning of the project.

This is more of a "proof of concept" release, to prove that this is a viable sprite creation technique. More info can be found on:
These sprites are based on downscaling and color reduction of high-res originals (at 4x times the vanilla resolution). Upon request, the hi-res originals are available for editing and/or enhancing. Needless to say, using this in your own WADs is allowed
