  4. Oh I goofed up a couple numbers in spawning scripts. Redownload it and try it! EDIT: Oh it actually turned out that all I had to do was import a couple Skulltag item definitions. Otherwise it was just core Decorate stuff! If you had gone with Acs I'm sure something would have exploded, but yeah.
  5. I finally put it out. It's fun and fully playable even if it lacks elemental versions of the higher level monsters.

  6. Once a gameplay mod for Skulltag only ever released to private testers, I got the original creators' (Maelstrom and Starscream) blessings to update the last version that was released to testers, as well as to make a version updated according to my whims! Obviously it's for Heretic. It replaces both monsters and weapons. Here's the original trailer made for the project: To be COMPLETELY frank I'm not sure I'm going to get around to altering the remaining types of monsters. I've got a lot going one, but there was no need to have this sit around on my hard drive. There are some miscolored particle effects I was too lazy to change. Yeah, I know. Regardless it's quite fun as-is and definitely puts a new spin on the game! Breakdown: The mod is based around 10 elements. Gargoyles, Golems, Undead Knights, Disciples of D'Sparil, and Iron Liches (only in Water and Fire) spawn in one of these elements. In the Fulgurite Editition each level will have a primary and secondary element that are most common. Accordingly, the player can obtain weapons of each element. Now of the 10 standard elements, each one counters the next in order, and is resistant to whatever element it counters. SO: Water : Blue Fire : Red Earth : Brown Air : Gold (Cyan in Fulgurite Edition) Acid: Green Steel (Metal in Fulgurite Edition): Grey Glass (Crystal in Fulgurite Edition): White/Light Grey (Purple in Fulgurite Edition) Energy/Power: Purple (Yellow in Fulgurite Edition) There are two other elements that spawn rarely but are more powerful. They are resistant to all normal elements, but counter each other. Light (Sacred in Fulgurite Edition) : White Dark (Profane in Fulgurite Edition): Black Downloads: Here is the original version, changed only to work on the current version of GZDoom. The Fulgurite Edition makes all of the following changes and is available Here.
  7. I’ve begun being really depressed and feeling awful things. I’m quitting the medication I’ve been on that seems to start it, but it’s really bad. Keep having to push through and edit my book and try to keep looking to the future.

  8. It is with immense pleasure that today I am able to announce the date of publication for The Shadow Among The Stars! I sincerely hope you’ll join me in the first book of The Dread Naught Trilogy.

     

    Pre-Orders for The Shadow Among The Stars in Kindle E-Book format will be available December 1st!

    The Shadow Among The Stars will be unleashed upon the galaxy December 15th, in both Kindle E-Book and Paperback formats!

  11. Anxiously eating up Early Reader feedback and editing my debut novel. No more then a couple weeks before I should start Pre-Orders and put out the first three chapters free as a promo. Wow, that’s crazy to type out.

  12. The 20th anniversary Doom 64 theme vs the 20th anniversary PSX Doom theme demonstrates the different tacts taken between the two games so well despite being variations on the same piece of music. Awesome.
  13. A diverse cadre of Early Readers are working their way through the manuscript and helping me ensure that “The Shadow Among The Stars” is the best book it can be. Impressions and opinions of the novel have been good, as seen below (all comments are from different readers): “It’s like 2001 except we send out a tank instead of a recon mission.” “The aliens are imaginative and quite alien (something you don’t see that often).” “Nicadzim is a kickass idea. Reminds me of H.P. Lovecraft's ‘The Book’.” And probably the most versatile quote I’ve received so far: “It’s pretty amazing tbh” Thank you to everyone that’s supported me this early on!
  14. He's everyone's favorite guy! Everyone's awed and inspired by him! And it's not very hard to see why: No one's slick as Doomguy, No one's quick as Doomguy, No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Doomguy's...
  15. God, I love you people. #MancubusTruth Also someone needs to throw together sprite edits matching the modern model vs 94' model with the harness and shoulder pads!
