Quick Monster Firing/ attack


Ok doomworld, I'm looking to improve the firing ratio of my monsters. Currently they fire at normal speed but I'd like them to fire at a quicker speed. I've tried to edit the decorate but I cant pinpoint which field to edit. Less walking more firing in other words. Anybody out there got any tips?

You can add the flags



in your decorate script, right under the code that defines the statistics (health, radius, height...). I don't think that I need to explain what is the purpose of the flags. However, you can add both of them at the same time to basically force your monster to always fire a projectile if he is seeing you (so for example a cyberdemon will fire 3 rockets, walk for one frame and then fire other 3 rockets)

You can also add to the previous flags a third parameter:


that modifies the chance of a monster to fire something. The lower the value, the higher the chance to shoot.


So an example follows:


actor xxxxx 10000

{         Health 10

          Radius 10

          Height 10

          Speed 10

          PainChance 10

          Mass 1000




          MinMissileChance 20

         [Rest of the code]



You simply have to modify the parameters that you want, and to add the States code, but if you have downloaded a custom monster you only have to add the flags in the place showed by the example.


This monster has a very high probability to fire at you if he see you, and will stop for a very short moment between his attacks.
