Aracnocide v4.0 [Update 06/03]

Recommended Posts



Hello guys. This is my first thread on doomworld forums, but not my first project. If i'm breaking any rules by this cross-posting, i apologize and i'll fix any errors as soon as possible. Thank you.

Download links, go to the end of the post!

Description

Spoiler

What is this?
Aracnocide is a Weapon/Enemy/Objects Mod replacement for GZDoom Engine.

Basically all enemies were replaced with different kinds of spiders, scorpions and wasps. But what else does it bring to you?

Features:

  • Choose among THREE classes and use between 53 weapons, to destroy your enemies. Watch your ammo!

  • Many custom resources!

  • Diffculty settings named after spider movies!

  • Very few weapons have altfires, but the altfire key also reloads!
    (Lazy ass excuses to use Altfires, i know).

  • A Quick melee key! Kick those spiders up theirs!

It's always good to remember:

1 - All enemies were replaced with something insect-like. If you're ARACHNOPHOBIC or you don't feel too good with spiders/wasps/scorpions/insects, play at your own risk and consider yourself warned. After the download button is pressed, i can't do anything.

2 - The main file is NOT intended to be compatible with Brutal Doom, TrailBlazer, Demonsteele or other mods that change overall gaming experience. I suggest using the enemies or weapon packs for those purposes.

3 - I like true feedback. I can't say i will add everything you guys ask me, otherwise we would have 80 different weapons in the game (lol). But i like to read your opinions. ;)

4 - Each class has its OWN weapon set!

Recommended Add-Ons

Drugs for Aracnocide: (OUTDATED FOR NOW)
http://www.mediafire.com/file/pth5tz4ec0yg6ow/AracnocideDrugs.pk3

These "drugs" are actually a patch that adds two items to your inventory: Cigarettes and Whiskey. Cigarettes give you health and whiskey gives you armor. Load it AFTER Aracnocide files.

Known Issue: It somehow messes player classes and you can use every weapon in game, including class-restricted weapons. If anybody knows how to solve this issue, i would be glad.

What's frightening than dark ambients to kill spiders?
