How about here i'll try the paintball idea cause every other person in the mod place just talked shit to me about how they thought i was goin to get all the credit....retards. Anyway, I have no clue on how to map but I wanted to be able to feel as if i'm playing paintball without ever leavin my chair. Any ideas....and maps arn't hard to make at all...i THINK i could do it when i'm not at work or cruzin

If you ask some specific technical questions you might get a better response. And calling everyone retards might not be the best way to kick off.

The maps aren't that hard to make. The basic principle behind deathmatch games and paintball is very similar. All you really need to do is to replace the blood splatter and bullet puffs with those bright paint splotches. Next, replace the shell and bullet ammo with paintballs, and the bigger units with boxes of paintballs. The backpack can be left alone, of course. Next, you're going to need to make a dehacked file (.deh file) to modify a few things. First, make bullet hits an instant death (you'll need to ask someone about that, since I'm not sure how). Then modify those paint splotches so that they will not disappear (it may look a big ugly though). Then modify some of the text a little (i.e. replace 'picked up 4 shells' with 'picked up a few paintballs'). As for the maps, it really isn't that hard to make basic maps. Just open an editor (Wadauthor, Deepsea, DCK, etc.) and fool around with it until you get the hang of it. Just make sure to only put in shotguns and maybe chainguns for your weapons. Since bullets would cause instant death, health and armor become unnecessary, so you can leave them out too.

All this shouldn't take more than a couple of days to accomplish.

I could make all the weapons act like paintball guns and add paint splatters in about 5 minutes when I get home if I'm actually motivated to. Probably not.

Heh, personally I never saw the point in paintball computer games/add-ons. After all, if you've got the urge for a bit o' splashin', why not just go do it in real-life? :)

I'll help. I'll fool around with DeHackEd (I could use the experience) to make the shots instant death (as far as I know all you'd have to do would be increase the damage to 101) and change the text. I'd import the graphics and sounds and music if need be as well. I don't know how to make the paint splatters stay, though, and I dunno if it's possible to make the shots fall after 200 feet in vanilla Doom. I MAY, MAY make a few maps, but I'm involved in something else right now, so it's highly unlikely. I'd be happy to answer questions, though. I dunno, I just think hiding in deep water, waiting for your prey to wander into sight is pretty rad.

Just so you know you can't edit how hitscan weapons work. If you want to make it more like paintball, however, make all the weapons shoot a projectile (like the plasma ball) and make the plasma ball take about 500 damage. If you do it like this it'll be slightly more realistic since you have a chance of dodging the ball as it comes toward you.

Then again, to each his own I guess.

I think real paint balls are a bit too fast to dodge

Wasn't there a .deh file that took all of the shotgun hits and group them together to nearly a single point?

If you use Zdoom, you could edit the decaldef lump to make coloured decals for the various impact marks.

Not really, although simply ducking will get your forehead bruised up pretty badly.

Heh, story behind that one is my dad had a semi-automatic, was shooting at me, and I decided my reaction would be to get down while firing back. He fired six times. The first luckily went over my head -- skimmed my scalp actually, but rolled off without breaking. The next three slammed into my forehead just above my mask, failing to break, cutting me up a bit. The next two actually did break, though. As much as they say the paint tastes terrible, it's only mildly displeasing.

So you see, a paintball is not hard to dodge at all, but it is easy to get chased down by a string of them. Have you ever played?

Yes, and I'm glad we finally got some decent answers this time.

Someone can use what I made as a base. Yeahp, it's got colorful bullet holes and really purdy blood stains. Heh, one time, I think I made a wad where plasma holes looked like the word "EPYO". It was funny, where'd I put that thing...

thx alot guys....and about the paintballs arn't hard to dodge part...they are ez to dodge...if you know where each player on the field is and when they come out. They won't shoot at u if you have good back players. They shoot about 1 case (2000) paintballs a game and keep the enemys team head down...i myself prefer to hear the "WHOOSH! BAM! BAM! hear it hitting the bunker only 2 inchs from my head kinda front man" It's my responsibility to sneak up and fast and nail the guys.

I'll also give you all full credit since i said it would be kewl to play on pc...not for me to get all credit! :-D I would be ballin outta control if this came true...well...if yall need some paintball sounds...just ask me and i'll pull out my gun and shoot some and record the sounds...

maps...arhhhh....smacktalkpaintball.com Watch a movie or two and tell me if it's really that hard....DWANGO5 has more stuff than an average field!

my idea of a good looking paintball gun.....i have a pic and if u want it e-mail me and i'll send u it. It's a BLACK AUTOCOCKER! NICE! :-D I'll also have to get the animations for it l8tr but it's a start! :-D

Take the autococker i guess and convert it to replace the rocket launcher...replace rockets with paintballs...and insted of slow firing rate....speed it up just a tad...since my gun can easily fire around 15 balls a second. anyway....just speed up the rocket launcher a bit...that's bout it i'd say!


Maps are ez though dude...smacktalkpaintball.com and just check some out...pic out some u like and make them. This will be fucking awesome project if someone does it and it works!

Sorry for sounding "mean", but seeeeeriously, there are a whole heap of specialised paintball games out there to find and play. Check the bargain bin at your nearest games store.

If someone does it?

Do it yourself for fucks sake. Why would people spend 54039875 hours making a paintball mod where they can GO AND PLAY IT IN REAL LIFE.

Why play Doom when you can shoot real people?

* Nanami shoots Zarcy.

Anyway, good luck with the simulated simulation mod.

Edit all the weapons to shoot a plasma bolt (codepointers) in DeHacked if you want to get off to a good start. Make them faster and smaller, then edit the graphics to be paintballs. I'd do it when I get home but I keep forgetting.
