Requests For Features / Re: Gameplay and Background Ideas

^ That idea sounds good.

I'd also like to see some form of maintenance/ventilation system we can try and scurry around in. Keyword being 'try'.

Excellent fan-fiction novellas. I am posting them here because I feel they could act as sources of inspiration, with some of the stuff in them...that, and they're great reads.

I agree with Salivanth. The amount of tactical variation and depth, not to mention the gentle-but-large learning curve, is one of DoomRL's strongest assets given how uniquely the game does it, and I'd ask you guys to design Jupiter Hell around these aspects if I weren't already sure you were. Which I am. I'm also reasonably sure you guys are going to include a nice, varied amount of level varieties, weapons, monsters and items to round this concept out. I'd love to see custom soundtrack support as well, not to mention mod support!

I also think the varied difficulty levels from DoomRL are important in that they provide a variety of challenge levels, which is something JH would do well to mirror. Going from ITYTD to N! is what I'm talking about here.

I'm...not sure about the prospect of adding drugs. All I can really say about this is that they should be optional.

I also have something to say about the length of the game. If you're going to try and make it 'short but sweet', I think DoomRL's game length is an appropriate target for comparison. I'd be fine with it being a bit shorter than DoomRL, since I know the lost length will be made up for with rich gameplay.

No matter what, though, I'm confident this is going to be one Hell of a game. I'll probably even contribute to the Kickstarter, that's how much faith I have.

The Spear was the only one I was having trouble with. Thanks for the info though, I'll definitely try that in future. I could use a good laugh in my DOOMRL every now and then.

I don't recall any discussion, but I know I need to branch out. And yes, if I were focusing on melee here then I probably would have survived. :p

This would have been a fucking awesome run if I hadn't died. I guess I should have used my Angelic Armor, but I was saving it for the Mastermind. I'm very proud of the fact that I could conquer Limbo on my first ever try. Easier than the Mortuary, anyway. :p This was also my first time with the Containment Area and Abyssal Plains. Kicked serious asses there as well. I guess I should have used that nuclear BFG, or minigun/plasma rifle, and I guess since I was aiming for the 'viles first and foremost I sorta ignored the Baron. Them's the breaks, I guess.

Since I'm not pro enough for real AoB, I sometimes do self-imposed berserker runs on ITYTD. I've beaten the game a couple of times this way, but this is the first time I've ever fully won. I had a nuke, I decided to do the Lava Pits on a lark and I pulled it off. :p Next on my list is a fists-only run.

Also, Sergeant Dornan is the best Fallout character. Also also, the Lava Armor is awesome.

Found a Berserker Armor on my current run. I'm doing good so far; might as well taunt me with something like this.

Shut up, it's relevant.

I was tempted to e-mail Carmack about it. Anyone else want to do it for me? :p

Discussion / Re: Alternative Background Music for DoomRL
« on: June 17, 2013, 14:10 »
But they will, now that the seed's planted. If you come up with anything, please share. 'Tame' doesn't necessarily mean 'unfitting'. See my example of Air, above, or listen to things like Massive Attack, or for example this track from Jeff Wayne's 'War of the Worlds' (1978!) (check out the full story here [disc 1] and here [disc 2])

Also:

This one?

Yes, that one. It's probably more fitting for a special level or something. Maybe if Kornel bothered to secretly implement Nazi SS somehow. (Maybe the Apostle is a Nazi officer? Iunno.) I've got enough music and types of music on my computer to conclude that at least some of it might be appropriate for DOOMRL, anyhow; even including a little bit of metal. I've got diverse tastes. :p
