Discussion / Re: AoSh vs Cyberdemon?
« on: February 29, 2012, 14:32 »
Another option is to get tactical gear (so you move faster), find an invincible pillar, and corner-shoot him to death. (Though now that I think of it, I'm not sure if there is an invincible pillar anymore. Hmmm)

I would have to say the number 2 from the OP would be really really nice. Also, on the topic of wait times, maybe it should be the minimum of your possible actions (fire, move, reload). That might be a bit unbalanced for pistoleros though...

I've always wondered if there was some way back across the wall in AoB/AoMr if a phase takes you across. I've never managed to get across in either (bad luck with phases).

0.9.9.5 / Re: [M][99%][YAVP] Another one bites the dust
« on: January 17, 2012, 21:02 »
O_O  An hour is a long win?!? I must be the proverbial tortoise then. I haven't won in less than two unless trying a speedrun or AoRA.

i'm not sure where exactly you came down the stairs, so I don't know for sure if this is feasible. But, if you could see any cover, you could have turned on running (definitely a good idea in any case) and carefully diagonal walked to it. With running and a full tac loadout, you should be slightly faster than an arachnotron. Another possibility is to use one of the arachnotrons for cover from the other one: they're pathetic in melee, so you practically neutralize the one you're next to, and he dies twice as fast.

Yet another possibility is to switch to the missile launcher, and blast them out of sight. Unfortunately, you only had two rounds in the magazine (from pounding Cybie I'd guess).

Or trigger the homing phase immediately. Honestly, I'm surprised you survived taking out the two arachnotrons with no cover, tac armor, and less than full health. The RNG hates me enough to ensure I wouldn't. :)

Basically though, this was bad luck. But not a lot of it, because arachnotron caves are common in hell, and inevitably (at least on the higher difficulty levels) you'll spawn next to a couple eventually. Definitely not "easily survivable" though.

Thanks! I'll do that next time. BTW, thanks for all those video tutorials. They really help newbies (like me) learn tactics. :)

0.9.9.5 / [U|AoMC|93%|YAVP] Way too much nice armor...
« on: January 15, 2012, 17:27 »
Well, this is my first UV win, and I really have to give credit to ZicherCZ for suggesting trying AoMC if you're having trouble with regular UV. It definitely makes for a tougher school, but it is easier in some ways. Even an unmodded chaingun with no skill can one burst kill formers (not commando) and imps. My tactic in the first few levels was, go to middle of intersection (preferably with some cover) and wait for stuff to wander into your line of sight. Boring, but...

This is actually only the second game I tried this build. Previously I'd been going for an ammochain build, and hoping for the mods for an assault cannon or similar. Apparently I'm a little better with ammo conservation than I am with keeping from being shot at the edge of vision, so Cateye worked nicely. (Cateye + Light goggles + intuition 2 makes for an amazing field of view.)

This game also had a lot of luck in it; I found an Onyx pack at the armory and made a plate armor, which I used for nearly all of the game. I also found a medical armor, a gothic armor (which I nanofibered, and used on spidey. Silly me assumed it did bullet damage. :) and a duelists armor (used in unholy cathedral).

On the other hand, the RNG mocked me with the first sniper mod I've ever seen, so I guess it evens out. ;)

Discussion / Re: Advice on UV?
« on: January 15, 2012, 17:03 »
Thanks ZicherCZ for the great advice! I haven't won even a HMP game yet, but with a little practice I just got my first UV win, on AoMC.

It isn't, as you pointed out, exactly easier (at least after the early game). It merely gives you a constant reminder whenever you lapse from paranoid play to merely cautious play (which is death in a RL).

Discussion / Wiki update question
« on: January 15, 2012, 13:06 »
I'm starting to work on the wiki in my free time, and I was going to start with the new level layout, etc.

Is there a canonical source for where levels can appear? Or should I just run through a few games keeping track, and post best estimates?

My other question was about monster AI changes. Did these change firing chance? If so, how do I find out what the firing chances are? Count as they shoot me? :) (I don't think I'll get a good sample on the mastermind before I die... ) Also, how do I go about finding the damage done by spidey? AoMC, and factor?

Bug Reports / Re: [0.9.9.5] AI exploit - trees
« on: January 15, 2012, 12:46 »
I just tried running an HMP AoB run, and you can, indeed, run them out of ammo. Unfortunately (or fortunately for balance) apparently shotgun blasts go straight through the tree.

BTW, does anyone know why you can't corner-shoot around the trees? The line-of-fire acts like the tree isn't there.

Requests For Features / Fire damage affects fluids
« on: January 14, 2012, 16:24 »
I was just thinking that maybe enough fire (or even plasma) damage might be able to evaporate water off the floor. I can't see it being useful very often (maybe if I'm pounding a former so hard it is obvious it has exotic armor of some sort?) You could also have lots and lots of fire damage ignite acid into lava.... which could be unpleasant, but might be a nice way of speeding up the death of stuff you've knocked back into it.
