I love CDDA. I always get the newest developement version and use chesthole texture pack, and a modified chethole soundpack. I want this game to be the most beautifull, immersive and fast paced roguelike ever.
I find that a good quality sound pack adds so much immersion to the game, and it got me thinking two things -
What if I made a series of pretty split-second gifs (or avi’s?), as many as possible, for different situations within the game and programmed them in, and have sounds to go with them maybe.
For example, If you kill a zombie brute with a crit, a short, satisfying silhuette slow mo- paralactic style gif pops up to amplify the situation. Or have a 1/100 chance for a similar sort of thing to happen with a normal zombie, and have different gifs for different types of weapons and enemies.
As well as cool gifs for situations like engine failure, zombies breaking in during the night, mutataions, drug use, explosions and such.
Played with cool sound effects, It might work and make the game even more awesome. Make those special moments stand out even more.
My other idea was a simple voiced protagonist that says cool stuff under certain conditions with a nice generic badass voice. This might go well along with the clips, with the character making comments when finding weapons, starting vehicles, getting sick, scoring crits and just doing things.
I have a nice voice, can do some nice animation and have basic understanding of programming.
But I’ve never made a mod for anything, other than small random adjustments in scripts or files
and I might need guidance with scripts and stuff…
Just wondering what others think about all this.
