Here's a little something I've been working on to replace the rotating question marks, I will release this as a separate mini-mod in case people prefer the vanilla question marks. Big thanks to Errol and Trent for helping me get my head around the particle system and CzechDeath for animating the question mark.

Random Powerup Holograms v1.0







DOWNLOAD LINK

Changes to rotating question marks on random powerups to animated holographic question and exclamation marks. Designed to work best with my CUSTOM POWERUPS MOD but will work fine with the vanilla powerups too.

Big thanks to Errol for helping me figure out the particle system and how to attach the sprite to the powerup models, Trent for pro tips, and CzechDeath for creating the sprite sheet for the question marl, and of course Shane for not suing.

What this mod package contains:

  • Animated sprites of a question mark and exclamation mark that will replace the default rotating one, uses the particle system instead of models

Enjoy!

Mod Installation

Place the zmod_RandomPowerupHolograms_AlexTSK.zad into the ZAD folder in your Carmageddon Max Damage install directory

Example: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Carmageddon Max Damage\ZAD\zmod_RandomPowerupHolograms_AlexTSK.zad

Known Issues


Spoiler:



  • The game will tell you you modded the game files and will lock saving and multiplayer - Sadly this type of mod isn't supported by CarMODgeddon yet

  • The holograms may float a little too far above the vanilla powerups as they are designed to work best with my custom powerup mod.



Changelog

Glad I'm not the one that has to sit in that seat. Great work as usual Alex.

Nice work on the new power-ups. I completely approve of the holograms (Unsurprisingly hehe), especially the distortions and slight color shifting. :)

Is eagle IV a remake of the tdr2000 eagle or something new?

Its a remaster of the scrapped Eagle IV from the pre-pre-alpha, the file was named Eagle IV so i just kept it (TDR isnt canon, we all know this)





Speaking of which, also I'm experimenting with a hawk IV counterpart:

Thanks guys, the work continues steadily, almos done with all the unwrapping, the smooth undertray probably won't be included in the mod for obvious reasons :)

Haven't lost motivation however the Eagle IV project has grown somewhat beyond the scope of putting it in CMD, it may still happen one day but I'm not promising anything.

Edit : To elaborate, I'm working on the Eagle IV as we speak but I have broken up the vehicle into a more modular setup so that I can also finish the Eagle MK1 by reusing mostly the same underbody, interior, and engine components from the Eagle IV which will save a lot of time. The project is now intended to be showcased in Unreal Engine 4 instead and be used for my porfolio. I can port it to the game but it will more than likely give lower end PCs a really hard time and the only way I could optimize it is removing a lot of the detail. If there's enough interest in that then I can certainly give it a try. The Eagle MK1 is also expected to be finished some time in the next few months but its the same story for that vehicle (a portfolio piece rather than built to the specifications of CMD)

Continuing to make mods for the game is really hard knowing that a handful of people will download and play said mods for five minutes before moving onto something else. If we ever get a patch or news of any kind I will be here to pick up where I left off but for now I must move on :) I will continue to post carmageddon related stuff on this topic as I finish up if the mods don't mind, failing that I can move it over to my dormant fan art topic.

Man. I think you're too hopeful regarding those patches or news updates.

The way I see it, were not talking about a lack of future patches here but a total lack of Stainless as a whole!

I think this site is all there is and all that will ever be regarding stainless.

They had their chance to inject life into their main franchise and they missed it due to various reasons.

They had that desperate attempt with crashes that failed too. It's done.

Hell, even Cliff Blezinsky failed and shut down his studio a few weeks ago.

The medium is very competitive and there are just too many games put out daily, for anybody to have time to check them all.

Being a medium game dev company is not worth it anymore.

Either you go with the big kids or with the small indies. The medium sized dev companies risk their lives with every new game they put out that doesn't cash in.

Complex games cost too much to produce these days and in the end even when they're good, without enough pr, nobody knows about them and they end up losing lots of potential sales.
