ZDoomWars I v 3.0k

Final revision until 3.1. I still plan on making it a pseudo closed beta so beware.

General:

-When upgrading or removing an upgrade that permanently changes a monster, you now default to whichever monster said upgrade affected EG: Removed Ettin Upgrade -> Ettin Summoner is now automatically selected

New Translations – Hexen Templar, Red Nazi

Strife:

-Reinstated ‘A_CrispyPlayer’ to the Strife player’s death state

-Repair Drone: The message for the Repair Drone’s information now stays on screen two times longer than any other summoner

Balance:

Chex:

-Reduced the Flembomination radius from 90 to 78

Bugs:

General:

-Permanent mana would always give a quantity of 1 no matter the pickup.

Maps:

-ZDWARS 17 – Flame Temple: Statue heroes wouldn’t spawn thanks to botched code. Quickly fixed and added the map fix into this pk3 until I release version 1.7 of the map pack

Doom:

-Team Vile Pulses revived LMS Monsters instead of TLMS. I can only imagine the large amounts of infighting and other AI abnormalities this caused

-Team Cyberdemons within melee range would sometimes fire rockets without team damage types. This means there would be friendly fire and even death to players/team monsters

Hexen:

-For the umpteenth time fixed Yeti/Wendigo obits again. I bet they’re still broken just to spite me.

Virus:

-Red team Treadmills could not be removed from battle… not like you’d do that anyway but still

-Related to the last problem, Red Team Treadmills wouldn’t ever fade after being revived more than once

ZDoom Wars I v3.0i

General:

-Created a very basic CVar query list to see which CVars are currently altered in game in real time. Type ‘CvarQuery’ in console to toggle on and off. CVars only will be listed if they’re altered from their default values and this list will automatically fade after 5 seconds

Balance:

Hexen:

-Ettin(Enchanted): I suppose this is balance related. I removed A_RadiusThrust from the Enchanted Ettin magic projectile. This will probably lower the damage some, but it also means Flembranes don’t lose most of their health in two hits

Strife:

-Programmer: Fiddled with the Close Too Close values and states. Watch as I accidentally make this guy way too powerful for its own good, or even more worthless

-Entity: Reverted the Entity’s changes from the prior version with +FRIGHTENED and what not

Virus:

Turret(Spreadshot): Raised the cost by two on all Spreadshot Turrets so now the retrofit cost makes sense

Bugs:

-If ‘ZDW_Herolimit’ was turned off, Silver, and Yellow LMS Leaders; along with Silver TLMS Leaders would not have a cooldown and always reimburse

Doom

-Revenant: Revenant’s cost message on the fullscreen hud said 26/8, not 24/6

-Pain Elemental(Dual): Dual Pain Elemental’s on LMS would shoot 1 soul only and wait two seconds afterwards.

Heretic

-Mummy: Altfire ghost Mummies only cost 3 mana

-Undead Knight(s): The Red Axe projectile from both varieties of Undead Knights were able to pass through ghosts

Strife

-Acolyte: Burned Acolytes hit with the repair drone would die twice instead of fading away

Chex

-Super Cyclops Flemoid: Corrected full screen hud and cost message that stated Super Cyclops can hit ghosts. Should be partially hit ghosts

Virus

-Spore(Upgraded): Upgraded Spores did not fire the upgraded projectile
