      Mapping: *********************************************************************************************************************

      have more inside bits
      With the new randomised generation this will allow for better indoor house generation.

      create and use md2 roof
      set for the randomly generated stuff

      Create a larger variety of prefabs. Maybe look at md2s for the trunks so that there can be more detail on them? Populate the world with them.
      Maybe make it so that you can spawn less trees in for lesser pcs

      Add some fences and a river to break up the field a little. Maybe even a waterfall
      hedges and pylons too

      Start using grass and plants in areas
      might affect cpu

      Retest and remake the gun range. use it to get the guns up and working.
      This actually needs to be done. I have noticed that a load of them are incorrect

      puke 833 makes some snow, with lowered friction etc. should also change the colours

      Create a mini version of all 3 areas and have that be the outside section for the skybox.
      Remember to set the lighting correctly for the mini houses, as they currently glow in the dark

      maybe get rid of the jail and replace with new new town
      This area is now designated for a randomly generating area, however this will take some work
      jail removed

      Graphics: *********************************************************************************************************************

      rounder clouds so that the spinning is less obvious when turning.

      use decals for wood across doors etc

      bullrushes in lake

      Change the zombie attack animation to be the actual animation
      maybe even a delay before they hit you?

      The ui elements need drawing better (obviously, or would it lose some of its charm?)
      we could do with some better artwork for the you’re dead screen etc.
      leave this until sbarinfo testing, and new inventory complete

      start separating the guns sprites into separate sections?

      make different graphics and script for day 1 2 3 zombies. walking, shuffling, crawling with half a body

      get rid of some of the larger images – do they all need to be there still?

      have cancel on car use have different menu background
      would make it less confusing

      cow ai
      currently the cows just run away from you and keep running, mashing against the wall. It would be good to have them amble around, but run when you get too near to them, or when there are gunshots
      test with zombiecloneflee – just swap the sprites and then set it to move backwards. Might not work when they attack you. could swap the attack to be the correct way round. it needs to only do this when you are nearby tho
      The cows need to give up running when you lose sight from them. Maybe you can take a look at the rats for how to do this

      you can bleed to death by drowning

      shivering when cold
      thrustthing vertical when cold – got this working – cold needs to work

      Scripting: *********************************************************************************************************************

      birds that fly around and land occasionally
      got it working but need to make some sprites

      snowfriction and sound when going through snow. slippy ice
      Make sure it turns back afterwards. Make the ice slippy, and the snow slower. Use the terrain def to add crunching sound to walking too

      button to auto bandage
      This would be useful as it can be fiddly. you’ll have to remap

      low detail mode
      turns off reflection. possibly uses bigger leaves but less. turns off grass. gets rid of snow and just uses colour. changes water so you can walk in it. that could be an option in game, or in a pre map

      use A_ChangeVelocity for snow
      This would make it fall randomly – hopefully

      fix the menu inventory so that it can jettison items when it goes over storage.
      long overdue. This may need to be completely rewritten

      ? Make it delete the items spawned from a locker at night
      Do we even want it to delete these? Test to see what tid it creates. Can this be set from within the spawnitem in decorate. If we do, then
      it it is the last value of this that needs to change: A_SpawnItemEx (string type [, float xoffset [, float yoffset [, float zoffset [, float xvelocity [, float yvelocity [, float zvelocity [, float angle [, int flags [, int chance [, int tid ]]]]]]]]])
      I would do it now, but I can’t test it properly at the moment, so I’ll leave that for later.
      The problem with this is is if you are raiding at night, and you open a locker and the stuff dissapears before you can actually pick it up. What do you think?

      Sound: *********************************************************************************************************************

      Make sure that all of the weapons and items have a sound
      unsure what level of this we already have. Needs review and then sounds adding.

      add noises to all the actions (drinking etc)
      mainly done now, but needs finishing

      ignition noise.

      full throttle theme,monkey island theme

      Accelleration noise?

      New features:

      animal breeding
      it would need to check proximity to another cow etc. You could herd them into a pen or a barn etc/
      cow and chickens. breed if they go near other ones?

      growing crops
      can then be used to harvest this

      Add readable books

      auto generated system using a grid that drops tids in there and possibly changes the floor too etc.

      placeable buildings
      see if you can do it like rust with a snappable grid. You can then spawn in blocking walls rather than have the walls be solid if needed

      multiple cars
      could even have different types of car.

      hil car menu background change
      phil-limit how far you can scroll down on menus

      phil – when in car set the music to the one playing
      play radio in car – have set this to only play for me
      done for just the one player, but add this to the script to set it playing for anyone in the car

      phil weather with random chance to change or stay the same each hour. weighted so it is rarely stormy. stormy triggers lightening
      possibly set a gl flickerlight in the cloud sector too
      possibly change cloud colour with changestate
      for light clouds do this and shrink the clouds and add transparency

      phil inventory

      phil time alive includes the start time. possibly doesn’t work after this too

      add inventory pickup sounds for bottles etc
      inventory.pickupsound “weapons/pernach/clipin”

      car engine running after car explodes.

      stop the sound quicker from the car after explosion

      mention the glass shattering script. have a whole file for them
      have poster decals on walls.

      purple pimp chairs. proper door textures inside the car etc
      use for hitting stuff with the car. have it for the car, or an invisible thing in front of the car. have it flip the tid and deal damage, or just make an explosionuse with the “car is travelling x speed”

      trees in old town
      use some dailytrees here. Start doing a proper mix of the two. especially place in notable areas

      sort doomids for weapons and ammo

      done add the new building textures into the pk3 once you work out which ones you are using
      Done have painting decals on walls

      weapon damage ak

      fix the obituary things

      lower size night textures

      zombie attack animation

      different image behind using the car – steering wheel or something

      test that trees still work now that you changed the tag for treestump

      check that car works now that I removed the see

      cant double input keys

      on eating, can this all be cut down to SCAN ABCDE 7 etc. Give it a test

      ability to plant trees

      put some dailytrees around

      fix weapon numbers

      set proper obituaries for the guns

      why Foof in eatfoo? check to see exactly what it plays. Im guessing this should be replaced

      give the rat eater etc to player on load. same with the arm eater or arm weapon

      dead rat scale is set wrong + is squished. maybe use upturned normal sprite

      new textures for bookcase, bed, bedside cabinet, toilet etc

      only set it to attract meat when thrown – throw, then use tid to change decoratecmd

      i think the longhorn is a bullet at a time
      This can only be fixed when the new inventory comes in, as it would just take one bullet per clip otherwise

      check out the shotgun casing. you probably want to do it as the weapon fires

      /graphics/building. There are some overly large textures there. 1 meg texutes etc,. these need lowering
      include the new images in the building place. separate by site


      remove unused 3d models

      use chance of bleed in decorate to set use its bleed thing rather than acs – currently being sick can make you bleed – does this trigger the same thing tho?
      test this after the giving actor items
      make the petrol pumps trigger stuff

      set a floor height and scale stuff to it
      actually scale the textures to a 1:1 scale so that you dont have to keep changing this constantly

      raining noise
      storm noise
      I think I had a noise for this before? see if you can get this back

      on pain giveactorinventory. take it out of acs
      PainChance “Electricity”, 40
      chance of bleed, chance of breaking bones

      only have windows for places you can go in

      hints on or off

      1. the grey city building with furniture inside can only be accesed by one of the 2 doors because one of the 2 doors is too small for the character.

      test? – make the rats shootable
      make the frogs shootable

      wood boarding to put as decals – can break with an axe?

      paint for the car

      green and red on pumps

      set droppable no on new items

      Rob – Options, Display Options, OpenGL options, Texture options, Set precache GL textures to ON.

      you should be putting it as a 1 player mp game rather than a single player, so that the car etc carries over

      Ugh, ages without any written updates, but tonnes done in the meanwhile.

      Spend some time today working on getting different coloured clothes that can be picked up, but ultimately failed, as you can’t seem to change this for actual players – as they are able to change the setting from within gzdoom. This is a real shame, as I really wanted to have different clothes. Will keep working on it to see if this is something that I can do
      in another way

      Added in all of the new weapons. Created some temporary sprites that can be used as placeholders for now, but will need updating before this is released with another version

      Sounds need adding for all the guns, and the relative accuracy and damage also need fixing. Currently the ammunition all has sprites (for the box versions) and the guns take the correct type, and amount of ammunition etc. The guns with scopes have working scopes.

      I would like to resurect the shooting range which can be used for testing and setting these gun values.

      Added the doomguy pic in the inventory with the head which changes as he becomes injured. It has an overlay for the weapon sprite, but currently these are not set within acs, as I still need to actually draw these sprites.

      Next things that need working on:

      -The selection box for the weapons is not wide enough, so its causing missclicks
      -right click needs to keep the item itself held as a value until you chose from the menu
      -add a box for the description test on the popup menu
      -right click dropping and moving needs doing
      -make it auto-fire the ‘weapon’ (can eater etc) when you select use from within the rightclick menu. That way you can eat etc and see it doing it in the background without needing to remove and readd the menu.
      -maybe a key driven version of the inventory again?

      Full gun sprites need adding for all of the guns

    • #362

      The list of weapons to switch to, and the list of weapon names to show to people are slightly different – phil, please could you take a look and get it to list the other one, but still switch to this one?

    • #363

      Currently rightclicking anywhere in the inventory pops up the box – this should only work on an item
