It will never get added to Skulltag, because if you don't know, it was discontinued 7 years ago. I'm making a sort of continuation/remake/emulation of it but that's pretty much it. All that gets added "officially" to Skulltag content is just bugfixes, and even that stopped.

 

What's the point of this? The Skulltag weapons and pickups look perfectly fitting in Freedoom (well, as much as they did in Doom at least)

  1. i dont really care tbh, im just having fun making sprites and other stuff, but i think i said that wrong cause I really meant that ill make sprites for skulltag freedoom version or something like that 
  2. they look more doom-like than freedoom-like

I made it green because when i thought of a minigun for freedoom i thought of a plasmatic minigun and green looked good on it so yeah..

And here comes the railgun!!

I honestly think that it looks amazing, it's just a combination of the current plasma gun and the old super shotgun, just that i took only one barrel and add a few touches

not for BFG10k

I always thought the Skulltag grenade launcher looked like the version FreeDoom would use, and if Doom really officially had a Grenade Launcher, it'd look like the one in KDiZD.

I've already made skulltag content for freedoom, first the doomsphere eyes for the Hud face, and recolors for the imp, the worm, the orb creatures, and the pain lords, I've already developed recolors for the combat slug too, including sprites for the minigun, plus using the classic BFG10k

i don't like it that dark, rl bloodworms are red, not maroon, or dark red there are even some pink bloodworms, but still nice sprites.

Just chiming in to say I like the idea of having Freedoom versions of all the Skulltag sprites, I hope you keep it up. For the most part these look really good so far.

I like this bloodworm better than the darker one.

If anything I would improve the contrast, but not the shade of red.

The other one had even worse contrast problems, the details got washed out in the recoloring.

Thx @Doomkid i will keep it up, and keep in mind these are currently just edits or frankensprites, so they sometimes can look bad or weird.

Ill improve the contrast in later updates

 

And as promised, my spheres!!

I really miss the old sprites, but i like the new ones (except the invulnerability sphere, that's just wrong) so, since I couldn't decide whether i like or not, i combined them (except the invulnerability sphere, that one is 100% hand drawn)

 

Spoiler

Next post will be the skulltag spheres, plus a little surprise :0

 

Keep all those comments coming, I'll happily answer

I guess Abaddon could be renamed to Asmodeus or any other demon name.

What are they though? I always thought they are meant to be eldritch demonic horrors from a hellish reality called "Horizon".

 

Calling them demons (ie. supernatural evil creatures) is not far fetched. Freedoom's Flame Bringer powers (and sound effects) seem supernatural and evil. The official plot texts only call them "monsters". The first chapter talks about experiments, but for all we know the AGM could have been just messing up with something that was already supernatural and evil to begin with.

 

But I agree neither Abaddon or Asmodeus are really appropriate, since both have ties with Christianity which is not really what this is (and christian demons aren't really that horrific either).

Fair enough. If I'm not mistaken, Freedoom's story unlike the original Doom replaces Demons with Aliens, right?. In that case those could be changed to something more alien-ish that (obviously) isn't copyrighted or taken off popular novels, maybe something original if possible.

The problem is that when you hear "alien" you only think of sci-fi futuristic people or genetically advanced races.

In my mind, Freedoom monsters are more like the result of an ancient evil that has been dormant for eons but was awaken in the experiments carried by the AGM, more like mysterious Lovecraftian creatures rather than the stereotypical aliens from outer space whose only real alien thing in them is their biology/technology, like in for example Duke Nukem.

 

So imho, the name should not have anything on it that makes you think of traditional aliens. It should either be a cryptic description (like "The Shadow Lurkers") that keeps the mysticism or some crazy name that's even troublesome to pronounce in human tongue (random stuff like "Zthuggarths") with the intent of it not being something you would pronounce anyway unless it's in some ritualistic chant.


Not that it really matters until someone actually uses those graphics to add them to a WAD. And at that point it would be the WAD author's call.

That's what I was trying to say, I just didn't know how to explain it.
