    Levels or megaWADs with a "broken reality" theme?

    One episode of Beyond Reality has this kind of feel.

    120 Doomguy Variant Skins: Released+Fixed!

    A default set of female sounds seems like a good idea to me. Puts things on an even field for all the make skins, after all.

    120 Doomguy Variant Skins: Released+Fixed!

    https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=48675&hilit=Ventris Got one set of subtle Doomgal sprites in the Doom Style section of my resource thread here.
  4. I hate nights like this. Got a psychiatry appointment in a few days, but tonight I feel so anxious and sad and alone and angry and ... it’s a lot. My heart won’t settle down, I feel light headed, and I invariably end up getting into a fight with my wife. It’s always my fault. I don’t know what comes over me. It’s like there’s this screaming in my head that drowns everything rational out.

  5. My birthday was yesterday! Help me celebrate by buying my Excellent scifi novel in either ebook or paperback! And then review it. Seriously folks, I need reviews.

    The story behind your custom avatar

    The main character off the cover of my debut novel!

    Anyone else get this feeling?

    I don’t like NPCs etc. dying on my watch. It’s not a huge deal but I always avoid unnecessary deaths, particularly with animals. The only time I ever purposefully killed a non-combatant in a game was in Morrowind when a particularly snooty quest-giver called me “Outlander” one too many times. I then followed him to his home and straight up murdered him. But yeah, just that one time.
  8. Well, I’m on Vero as Dylan Wayne Sanchez. It’s free for life for the first million people, and I do like free stuff, so hey.

  9. I just assumed I was going crazy when that option seemingly vanished, so at least I know that’s not the case?
  10. Finally been diagnosed as bipolar. Feeling the worst I’ve ever felt in my life. Every moment is a roller coaster of emotions. I just feel sick and tired and awful.

  11. Whew! Settling into a new job on Sales, an area I thought I’d never end up in. It’s axtually a really good job that pays REALLY well when you sell. I seem to have knack for it, luckily.

     

    Anyway, sales on my book have been slow but I’m working on the sequel and already love it so far. It’s gonns be so good!

  12. Amazon Kindle Page here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077VNXRHN?ref_=pe_2427780_160035660 First real quick, my public author's page: https://m.facebook.com/dylanwaynesanchezauthor/ I am writing (actually currently editing) my debut novel! It's a hard-ish science fiction novel of high action and a delicious amount of something we all love: monsters getting blown into pieces! This is the first in a trilogy of novels. Blurb (I.e. The back of the book stuff) for 'The Shadow Among The Stars: For those who aren't well-read in Sci-Fi: as long as you don't get lost during the average episode of Star Trek involving engine troubles, the hard sci-fi stuff is explained in an understandable fashion. Content: Splattery violence, language, and backdrop elements that make my super-Lefty political nature blatantly evident. I am self-publishing on the Kindle store in both E-Book and Paperback formats, and the book is currently scheduled to come out in December. It's a little over 110,000 words. I'll be asking for Early Readers (to provide both input for final editing and for launch-day Amazon reviews) at the beginning of September, so keep an eye out for that! Later I'll be putting the first 3 chapters out for free as a promo as well. Anyway, thanks for reading! Tell people about me, follow, share, etc. if you please!

  21. 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.

    Maelstrom's Heretic Element Storm and Fulgurite Edition

    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.
  23. I finally put it out. It's fun and fully playable even if it lacks elemental versions of the higher level monsters.

  24. 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.
