New weapon! See inside.
« on: October 28, 2005, 05:33 »

Why not the soulcube! If you haven't played doom 3 then it's a weapon that never runs out of ammo, but needs to be charged by killing 5 enemies. It is stronger than the BFG! OPTIONAL: It also gives you all the health the monster once had.

EDIT: After a little reasearch I figured out it is in fact FIVE TIMES stronger than the BFG, but that's doom 3, not doomRL.

Also: Maybe a new BFG that can charge for up to 3 turns. (Somthing for the yellow { maybe)

Hmm, I'm very cautious in adding new weapons to DoomRL... the current weapons are quite balanced (I hope)... As for Doom 3 I'm not fammiliar with it (before Doom3 I always thought that the phrase "The levels load so long that I can make myself a tea in the meantime" was an exaggaration. No I know a game that follows that quote literally :-|.

Some games you can go take a pee while you're waiting!

*AHEM*

Yes, the weapons are really balanced I guess. Also, making a stronger one may require making more levels, monsters, etc.

Problem: The games don't string together, maybe they will in 0.9.9, but for now, we lose weapons on victory/death.

Such things should be configurable, and should be there only when you want a different game, having fun with different stuff. That would suit in there perfectly, even if its "unfair" or not balanced.

Exactly, like, maybe doomRL .9.9 will have a start menu, with options, and perhaps a mod menu, with various mods and bonus's and stuff?
