It seems that making this change before the eventual source-code release (of DoomRL) might also make the resulting source a little less useful for other people's projects.

There already is a roguelike called Infra Arcana
which is mostly Lovecraft-oriented, but also takes some inspiration from Blood in some of the weapon choices (dynamite, pitchforks, tommy guns),
and  "cultists" as enemies.
I think it's pretty fun.

Everyone keeps asking about automatic shotguns, but that's what the Jackhammer is already supposed to be;

anyway, my horrible idea:

Weapon Jamming & Barrel Overheating:  occasionally firing attempts fail and you are forced to retry the shot, or even reload

(might be a desirable feature to have for certain mods, actually)

How about making the tracker just give you the old Int2 effect with no map data and let the tech get both map and tracker from either one?

Right, I guess I was thinking of replacing both with a single item (that provides 3 levels of upgrades, or 2 for technicians) but your solution is good too, and probably implies a lot less new code.

These seem a bit too plentiful right now, and while they are a neat idea for an item, they often kill the tension for me.

I think they would be better if they were a multi-step upgrade system from the regular computer  map;

IE, the first thing you find is always a regular computer map, the second one could be a "motion detector" that shows the position but not the type of the enemies (or maybe only the ones in a radius of 20 or so) and the third pickup could be the regular tracking map

Same problem with sound here, but the 32bit version works fine
