The_Funktasm's Project Log

Post by The_Funktasm » Mon Jan 05, 2009 14:46

I've started projects before, mostly involving maps, so now I want to start a weapon only mod to fix my problem with finishing them.

I have prepared a design document for my newest idea, which I'm dead set on finishing. Have a look.
Arcade DM Weapons Design Document.

OUTLINE: To provide an old-school, side-scroller styled weapon set for skulltag.
SCRIPTING ENGINE: DECORATE
TARGET WEAPON COUNT: TEN OR LESS
TARGET WORK TIME: TWO MONTHS

WEAPON PLANS:

CHAINSAW: AXE. LOWER SPEED, BUT CAN BE THROWN LIKE A BOOMERANG.
FISTS: RIDICULOUS KUNG-FU AND A STREET-FIGHTER STYLED SPINNING KICK AS AN ALT-FIRE.
PISTOL: DUAL PISTOLS MEANT TO BE LUDICROUS, ONE SHOOTS WHILE THE OTHER HAND GOOFS OFF, PLAYS GAMEBOY AND SOME OTHER RIDICULOUS ANIMATION. THEY WOULD TRADE OFF.
SHOTGUN: BOOMSTICK THAT FIRES MULTIPLE PROJECTILES, ALT FIRES A QUICKER SLUG OR SOMETHING MORE INTERESTING.
SUPERSHOTGUN: FLAMETHROWER WITH LIGHTLY GRAVITY AFFECTED FIRE AND A SWEEPING MOTION, ALT FIRES A JETPACK LIKE THE DUDE IN THE RUNNING MAN.
CHAINGUN: SOME HUGE, SWEEPING CHAINGUN THAT FIRES SOMEWHAT FAST PROJECTILES. ALT FIRES A WEAKER SPREAD THAT SATURATES THE ENEMY WITH LEAD.
OTHER POSSIBLE CHAINGUN: GOOFY DUAL SMG'S THAT TAKE IT TOO FAR, WOULD FIRE NORMALLY, THEN TILT, THEN CROSS, THEN JUGGLE.
ROCKET LAUNCHER: CLUSTER GRENADE LAUNCHER, GRENADE BLOOMS AFTER ONE SECOND INTO A SPREAD OF MINI GRENADES.
SINGLE ROCKET: GRENADES, HAND SWEEPS THE SCREEN TOSSING FIVE GRENADES SEQUENTIALLY. ALT FIRES THREE INCENDIARIES.
PLASMA RIFLE: LASER RIFLE FIRES FIVE RICOCHET LASERS THAT DO DECENT DAMAGE. ALT FIRES A SINGLE RIPPER THAT ALSO RICOCHETS WITH DEADLY DAMAGE.
BFG: TOME OF POWER STYLED PICKUP THAT CHANGES THE GUNS INTO THE FOLLOWING:

TOMED WEAPONS:

CHAINSAW: THOR'S HAMMER, THUNDEROUS BLOWS AND EVEN BETTER HOMING AND THROW SPEED.
FISTS: KUNG-FU MASTER WITH THE ABILITY FOR BETTER COMBOS AND AN ALT-FIRE SONIC BOOM.
PISTOL: DUAL SAWN-OFF SHOTGUNS WITH SIMILAR STATS AND SPREAD TO THE BOOMSTICK. ALT FIRES BOTH.
SHOTGUN: PIRATE CANNON. RIPPER. NUFF SAID. ALT FIRES SHRAPNEL.
SUPER SHOTGUN: UBER FLAMER THAT DOUSES ENEMIES IN FLAME THAT PERSISTS, EVEN ON THE GROUND. ALT STAYS NEARLY THE SAME, BUT CHEAPER.
CHAINGUN: DUAL M-60'S, REPLETE WITH RAMBO YELLING. ALT SWEEPS THEM.
ROCKET LAUNCHER: HOMING ROCKET PROPELLED CHAINSAW. ALT FIRES A FLAMING CHAINSAW THAT DOESN'T HOME, BUT LEAVES FIRE IN IT'S WAKE.
SINGLE ROCKET: THE DYNAMITE FROM BLOOD, SINGLE STICK. HUGE EXPLOSION AND UNPREDICTABLE FUSES. ALT THROWS A BUNDLE.
PLASMA RIFLE: ION CANNON. DEVASTATING SWATH OF PLASMA AND DEATH, ALT FIRES SEVERAL OF THE OLD ALT-FIRE.

GIB STYLE:

RAINS FLAMING GIBS, NARC STYLE FLYING ARMS.

VISUAL STYLE:

GOOFY BUT NOT CARTOON.

PLAYER CHANGES:

HIGHER JUMP TO EVADE SWATHS OF PROJECTILES, TINY BIT FASTER.

MISC:

BARRELS WILL BE ABSOLUTELY DEADLY, AND WILL RAIN FIRE. ASPLODE MEDAL WITH THAT DUDE FROM SCANNERS REWARDED FOR GIBBING YOUR FOES.
I think it could be a lot of fun, but now I need some good goofy resources like huge guns (not huge guts, I've got those already.)
Details as they form.
