So technically the "latest build" is whatever you get when compiling the main branch on pipper's fork. Nobody has has expressly stated that we're doing stable main but it seems to be working out that way anyway.

Thanks very much, peeps. I’ll download that and test it out the next time I’m at home. Much appreciated (including all the work you’re doing on this).

indeed, anything I have uploaded here is very much 'as is' and as we have seen, mileage may vary, but this has helped identify various issues which is not a bad thing.

I still need to add that swimming mechanic, but I'm keen to avoid making any changes to player state until my current PR is merged

code clean up is probably a higher priority, but, I did manage to get stuck at the bottom of a pool of water while playing your mod earlier, sooooooo, fix it! fix it! fix it!

would adding 'damage' after a set time submerged has elapsed be doable?

That PR just got merged so you might want to sync your fork to avoid conflicts later.

What do we think about reintroducing AB3D style health and ammo limits? Would this be a breaking change for the existing game, where stockpiling counters the challenge of some of the later bosses?

In my own playthrough, I've always felt like levels with particular bosses usually contain ammo for the heavier weapons anyway and the virtually unlimited carry and health makes the latest levels just an exercise in throwing around explosives without a care. You can soak up your own face rockets with no consequences and that just seems wrong to me.

I propose placing health and ammo caps, with defaults based on the original game weapons but including some provision for setting new limits for mods, since they will have their own ammo and weapons.

It does feel a bit weird, but I wonder how much of the later levels is designed around that (or assuming players would not get every available pick up because they will miss some areas?)

Damn, I really need to write a new level editor. As good as 303 is, I get on average one crash or lockup per 3 zones when working on anything new.

This took a lot more effort and patience than was strictly necessary lol [ Show youtube player ]

If not I have it here somewhere.
