    • My concern about the gremlins were due to their usual big amount of enemies at once.
      You usualy see many of them at once and they are gibbed quite easily (-35 health), so most probably many hearts would be lying around the battlefield...
      But in principle, they are normal living creatures which have a heart.
      So I will add it to the gremlins.

      The scourge (which is the scorpion by the way) is a diffcult one.
      Yes, it has "borg-like" implants, but I think the most of it is a regular living creature.
      So I most probably give him a heart.
      They never appear in groups, so that is OK.

      What is a "floating ball" ? Do you mean the spikmine ?
      Yes, these should not have a heart at all (they do not spawn any gibs either).

      I will think about the statues and their stone-gems...

      Thank you very much for your suggestions.

      • @seven
        yeah, thats what i meant when i said 'floating ball', the spikemine.
        im sorry about that, had completely forgotten their name
        .
        are you curious about what all there is out there in terms of HD content for quake?
        > then make sure to check out my 'definitive' HD replacement content thread! <
        everything that is out there for quake and both mission-packs, compiled into one massive thread

        • The Rogue Lavaguns should boil the water when you go into it and the water should cool down your weapon.
          Rising waterbubbles around the hot Lavaguns should look great.

          • Nice idea Webangel..I think that could look cool!

              Except the shot of the retro-fitted Enterprise from the series finale. That was just weird. Comon, three war nacelles...?

                I tried it several month back and unfortunately have to say that it is not possible.
                Reason: view_weapons are not really models as all the rest in the Quake world.
                They dont have a real size. They are only drawn/glued on the lower edge of your monitor so to speak. They are only visible in 1st person view by the player himself.
                It is hard to express with my bad english...

                I can of course spawn bubbles when you are equipped with lava nailguns and you dive into water (water level 3). This is all doable with QC, but the spawned bubbles will never surround the view_weapons (like they can do it with other models). They will always be in front of it.
                And the next issue is:
                To get the "feeling" that bubbles are spawned near your view_weapons, makes it necessary to spawn them directly in front of your face so to speak.
                This makes the size of them very large. But if you move only 1 step backwards, you will see them tiny, tiny sized (= their real size).
                These 2 facts makes it impossible.
                I am sorry.

                Best wishes,
                Seven

                • Seven: Any idea why the wetsuit effect works in the demos, but not when I'm playing the game? Here are screenshots.





                  Also, all other particle effects and what not work in game, but not in the demos. Is it possible to change that? I would like record quake done quickest looking as nice as I can.

                  and a final question, the update log of 3.75 says you added ability to use all cheats (quad damage, invis, wetsuit, runes, etc) how is that done? I looked through the code and couldn't find any give or impulse commands.

                  • Regarding cheats:

                    - 'impulse 252' = gives you "Ring of Shadows"
                    - 'impulse 253' = gives you "Pentagram of Protection"
                    - 'impulse 254' = gives you "Biosuit"
                    - 'impulse 255' = gives you "Quad Damage"

                    You can find it in .\00 detailed Readme.txt´s and screenshots\Readme Additional cheats.txt

                      Hello Roy Batty,

                      The "small mod compilation" V4.01 gives you the possibility to use custom biosuit particle effects, but since V3.70 there is no default effect implemented.

                      The reason why you see the effect in the demo is because you use an external biosuit model with hardcoded effect flag !
                      The demo does not make use of SMC´s modified progs.dat and therefore uses the models hardcoded effect name, which is in this case: wizards projectile trail (TR_WIZSPIKE)

                      If you want to have the exact same effect that you see in your demo/screenshot also in your game, it is no problem to do it.
                      Simply add this block anywhere into your effectinfo.txt:
                      effect biosuit
                      lightradius 70
                      lighttime 0
                      lightcolor 0.188 1.76 0

                      But I do not recommend this effect. It is too strong (blinding).
                      Try this more soften one instead (if you want to keep the green color):
                      effect biosuit
                      lightradius 70
                      lighttime 0
                      lightcolor 0.2 0.8 0

                      If you want to have a brown-ish effect color (which fits to Ruohis´s biosuit that you are using), I recommend this one:
                      effect biosuit
                      lightradius 170
                      lighttime 0
                      lightcolor 0.54 0.35 0.17

                      Just try all one-by-one, or create your own effect. It is all up to you

                      The biosuit is the only powerup which has no default effect in the "small mod compilation".
                      We did not like it and therefore did not put an effect in it.
                      But I gave you the possibility to do so (as described above).

                      ===================

                      It is not possible to see the custom effects in the original ID1 demos.
                      I explained details here in my answer to GiSWiG.
                      But it is possible to record a new demo and keep all of the effects if you keep the custom external files as well.

                      You are speaking about the "code", so if you are interested where the additional cheat codes are in the QC-source, look into weapons.qc (at the bottom of the file).
                      Webangel described where you can read more about it in the readme´s of the "small mod compilation".


                      Have fun with the "small mod compilation".

                      Kind regards,

                          I am using 53-56 "slots" from particle font , these slots were used just for muzzleflash of nailguns and supernailguns, you just to reduce the range of "slots" used

                          my custom particlefont particlefont.tga - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download - nahuel scorza Maybe if seven like the idea can fix this stuff

                          • Looks good nahuel.
                            Could you please upload your particlefont to another site as I can never get 4shared to let me get anything.

                            Thanks

                            • Hello Nahuel,

                              This kind of spirit is exactly what the "small mod compilation" is made for.
                              It shall be improved by interested people.

                              Your idea to use a new texture for the fire is exactly correct.
                              But please dont use tex fields 53-56. They are already used.
                              Free textures are: 37-39.
                              These are free and are not used by any effect in the "small mod compilation".

                              I cannot download your particlefont, so I cannot test it...

                              But thank you very much for your ideas.

                              Bst wishes,
