[Release][GZDoom] TurokDooM: Legacy of the Fireseeds demo
« on: April 14, 2024, 03:01:33 AM »
Mirrored from the Doomworld forums

TurokDooM : Legacy of the Fireseeds (tentative title) is a modification for DooM 2, geared towards the GZDooM Engine. This mod is built upon the original TurokDooM mod made by Murden64 in 2008-09 for Skulltag. This current mod is a total overhaul incorporating content pulled from the Turoks 1,2 3, Rage Wars, and Evolution.

I’m releasing a working demo for this Turok TC for GZDooM. After 2-ish years of development and nearly losing all work in a hard drive failure and a 3-year period of personal turmoil. By chance I recovered a build from my old hard drive. Some work was lost and had to be remade.

Features:

·        Fully 3d content taken from the Turok games and from other sources.

·        Level 1’s main path is completable with a lot of secret areas.

·        The Hub and other maps… exist but are in a rudimentary state. The current build of Level 3 is fairly large with plenty of things to see and do, but the map has no actual ending as of now.

·        Lotsa Weapons, some with alternate fires or can use special secondary ammo.

·        Lotsa Enemies, some with special behaviors like running away when taking too much damage.

I’m also releasing several workfiles for modders to play around with. Most of these files are 3d meshes and animations that I could salvage from my old hard drive. Also includes content not actually used in the demo build.

Included as well is an Author’s Blueprint document that thoroughly details what my vision for the completed version of this mod would be. Unfortunately, my current career takes too much of my time for me to continue development of this mod further other than adding some more 3D meshes or adding small updates to resources. The AB really now exists as a general guideline for any modder(s) to pick up from where I left off.

Current demo build: 5.19.24

And I took the task of making the Weapons be standalone. The Enemies will come later.

Here's the Download for the Weapons: https://www.mediafire.com/file/uggn1r5pjbxprji/TurokDooM-LotFWeaponsStandAlone.pk3/file

Great and well done mod, BTW.

While I appreciate the gesture, you should know that I've been making small improvements to the mod, I already replaced the green T-Rex with an Allosaur and I'm planning a lever action rifle in the next release in 2 days.

Check the mirror thread on Doomworld as I frequent that one more often.

For the Standalone Weapon Pack of this Mod, V1.1 has been released! This Version Brought over the changes from the current release of the main mod since the last release of the standalone weapon mod with some changes of my own mixed between.

Weapons:
The Knife and Warblade now have secondary "deathblow" attacks. These secondary attacks affect player movement when they're executed. The Berserk also buffs up their damage. While the main mod has given them new animations and hands in one of the updates, I decided to keep the original hands and animations for both, with the New hands being a Addon down the line.
Updated the Tek Arrow explosion.
Upped the damage of both pistol rounds, Although not too much to what the Original Mod had.
Added two Scorpion missile types for both Scorpion Launchers, Based off of how the Original Mod treats each launcher firing different missile types: The single missile scorp fires a fast, non-seeker missile, while The 3-missile scorp fires slower seeker missiles. Here, Both Missile types can be used by both launchers as they can be switched between at will. They however were edited so the unique movement was removed and the Non-Seeker missile flys faster.
Resolved issue with grenades destroying rocks by bouncing on them.
Grenade Launcher can now switch between "Delay Mode" and "Impact Mode" with the secondary fire. The Lights on the weapon also change between modes.
Added the Freeze Shot Mode for the Alien Weapon, Which allows it to switch Modes between. It freezes enemies and does not have any delay unlike the Plasma mode, But the Blast Damage does two less damage to make up for it.
Included the changes from TBM's Edited Build for the Mag 60 (Fire Rate change), Plasma Pistol (The Beam bayonet now uses the correct sound effects that were in the files but unused in the main mod), Auto Shotgun (The Drum uses a unique sound effect instead of reusing the shotgun's), Firestorm Cannon, Alien Weapon and Scorpion Launcher (Fire rate changes).
Added Lever Action Rifle as a Super Shotgun Replacement. High damage, high precision, low rate of fire, uses it's own rounds (Originally rifle rounds).
Added the Plasma Rifle MK.II as the Plasma Rifle Replacement. Since I want to make it work differently from the original games, I made it as a what-if had it been included in the Original Mod. It has two fire modes: The 1st one is the Zoomed in Plasma Mode from Rage Wars and 2nd one is a Rail-Gun like effect that rips through enemies. It's 3rd Fire mode (The high-powered Plasma Explosion Beam) will be saved for a later version. It uses the unused RW Plasma Rifle Pickup Model while the FPV Model is the one from Turok 2, with one new animation for one of the the firing modes, which goes unused (For now). Note that the weapon is still a WIP: It's Effects and damage will be refined for later and it reuses the effects from Rage Wars.

Items:
Added a new Backpack mesh, which is based off of the one from Rage Wars. Note that it does not replace the original one fully, as both the original and updated backpacks can spawn.
Added new meshes for Berserk (Ancestor's Fury) Blursphere (Spirit Walker) and InvulnerabilitySphere (Body of Stone).
Included the fixed normal arrow pickup meshes, making it so the T2 Placeholder Models are no longer needed.

Other:
Removed some leftover enemy sounds/textures.

Here's the idea I have.

Burnt Enemies (Poachers and Raptor so far)

Sorry that this is the best I tried.

Anyways, when they get killed by the Flamethrower (or other weapons that have the Fire DamageType), they get burned in an agonizing pain.

Yeah I was planning something like that far down the line as well as other damagetype deaths and Turok 2 levels of gore
