    ah that explains why the particles adjustments i made sometimes work and sometimes not depending on the angle of the ogre.
    i assumed the offset's were in relation to the ogre's rotation and not in relation to the world.

    great to hear though that you'll be adding an option to have the particle-effects positioned for TM's ogre

    .

    cant wait for more updates! looking forward to seeing the carniverean monster, and the reiver will also be cool!


    the spider also climbing on ceilings is awesome, and its cool that he'll be able to jump you from the ceiling!

    crazy idea... but how about making the spider also able to scale walls?
    and maybe even make it able to traverse from ceiling to walls to floor?

    that would make the spider enemy even cooler and creepier imo,
    if it would be able to walk on all surface just like a real spider

    just imagine walking through a hallway and you are about to turn around and there's suddenly one of those critters on the wall right next to you?
    .
    are you curious about what all there is out there in terms of HD content for quake?

      No, seriously, I feel as though it's about time someone suggested an armagon revamp. I'll get it done sometime else when I'm less sleepy though lol.

      • So here are my suggestions for the Armagon battle:

        1. Armagon can spawn gremlins around himself and around the arena.

        2. Armagon can spam grenades/proximity bombs/something else all over the place once his health drops below half.

        3. Armagon has an energy shield (slightly different from the enforcer) with its own health value that he can activate at random times. Basically recycled code with some small changes.

        4. If you get too close to him while his energy shield is active, you will be zapped with many short bursts of lightning like with the generator in hip2m5. I'm assuming this is basically recycled code too.

        5. There is a DP bug when Armagon dies that prevents you from seeing the explosions on his body. I hope this can be fixed : )

        6. I propose a new projectile for Armagon. Like the homing hellknight projectiles, but now fired in a longer, continuous stream (like a flamethrower or something) instead of in a wave. I assume there would be an ideal time for him to use it, but I'm not sure right now.


        Another slightly more personal request I have that might be interesting is for the spikemine to use tr_slightblood when it moves and blood_monster_gib when it explodes. Also, if you ever plan to make it explode into nails, can you make the nail model under a different name than spike.mdl or s_spike.mdl? I guess I'm asking this so it would be independent of what you shoot out of a gun. In SoA, I like using plague's nails, but I feel like those would look extremely weird if they came out of the spikemine. Especially as opposed to Rouhis'.

        If anybody else has their own suggestions relating to this, I would really want to see them, as I feel like the crappy Armagon battle is a serious problem.

        While I'm at it, I have a, quake-related suggestion regarding AI behavior. I found that it was weird how weak monsters would go kamikaze on bigger monsters. So I propose that there be a feature implemented where weaker monsters do not respond to the attacks of large monsters (so we don't have things like knights attacking shamblers).

        Another AI thing I would recommend improving is the fish behavior. How about if a player gets out of the water to kill them all, they try to get as deep and far away from him as they can instead of getting stuck at the top of the water pool?

        • Hello,

          Last night cthulhu visited me in my restless dreams and told me an idea for the spider monster.


          He said: Spiders like to hang on their threads and wait for innocent prey.
          He ordered me to add this into my mod or he will eat me while I'm sleeping.


          I jumped out of the bed and tried my best ... and often failed.
          But in the end it worked.

          She can shoot and jump from ceiling towards the player as well as climbing down and up her thread as long as she feels safe up there.
          Especially in small maps with less wide open areas she can for sure suprise and shock the player who is not expecting monsters attacking from under the roof.
          She decides at map start wether she will jump and hang on ceiling or not. In this clip I set her to replace ALL monsters in a map (only for testing and demonstration purpose).


          I hope some of you will like it.
          If not, I will tell cthulhu and send him to your adress

          Viel Spass !
          Seven


          PS: Pringles Man, at the moment I am working on the id1 version of the smc. As your ideas are mainly hipnotic related, we will have a detailed talk when I work on hipnotic again. Thank you for your understanding.

                • do we need 5.00 and 5.11 to run this im starting fresh? nice work on all the new mods!

                  • Hello Josh,

                    I included everything since the release of V5.11 into this download.
                    The readme explains how to proceed in detail.

                    Please use the new smc_config.cfg from it as base now, as several things have changed.
                    If I ever will release a final version of V5.20 (which is becoming unlikely) it will be a standalone (you can delete v5.0 and v5.11 then).

                    I highly recommend everybody who uses the SMC to download this new update. It is no longer a beta (even though the naming still says it). It has important bugfixes and a smoother gameplay. If people dont like the new things, you can safely disable them as always.

                    Thank you and have a great weekend everybody.

                    • wow seven very cool update loving the pain skins and the spider got the drop on me a few times and some how i think i saw a orge burn to death that was way cool. personally i have mixed feeling about the head gib looking at you at first its cool but if you pass by it twice it dose the head turn thing to look at you. thankyou for your work on quake i hope you keep tinkering with it from time to time. enjoy the weekend

                        • since that we now also have a fancy medieval armor available.....

                          could you perhaps extend the custom model+sounds feature from health to armor,
                          and add an option to use a different armor in base and in non-base levels?

                          so that we could have ruohis armor appear in base-maps,
                          and have makke's medieval armor appear in non-base maps
                          .

                            That would be a really great feature, I was thinking the same thing: medieval armor in medieval maps, ruohis armor in base maps. Awesome.

                            • I actually use armor models based on mission pack: Rouhis for Quake, the unkown model for SoA, and the spiky model for DoE. It works great, although I have nothing against the feature you propose too : P

                              • Just tested with Drake and works fine, even if it's a bit strange if you play and industrial map like Sludge factory (uses Drake mod)
