I'm working on a Mega Man X mod for GZDoom, and I intend to eventually make a Total Conversion of MMX1. Would it be okay if I borrowed gameplay elements from your mod such as the dashing and wall climbing? You'd be given full credit for any aspect borrowed, of course! If you'd rather not, I'll totally understand.

I would be sincerely flattered. Please go right ahead.
Is there a place where I can see progress as you develop it?
Not as of right now, but I do intend to start posting my progress on Github and maybe Youtube once I have something presentable.
This is actually my very first foray into Doom modding, so I'm learning as I go. My MMX1 TC idea is admittedly way out of my capabilities as of yet, so it's a project I want to get done on the long term. I'm focusing on modding the player character for now.
I have quite a bit of the player sound and visual aspects done, so right now, my goal is to get this part done, and then I'll get to the gameplay part. Only when that's done I'll start thinking about the TC campaign. I do intend to release the standalone gameplay mod though.
Still, if you're curious, I can certainly show you how it's going so far. It's still very barebones with no gameplay alterations whatsoever, but it's still something. I'll send you a .pk3 file if you want to take a look, though I'll only be able to do so tomorrow night.
Thank you so much for allowing me to use your mod as reference! After posting my initial comment, I downloaded it and spent quite a few hours blasting through the Doom 2 campaign. Absurdly fun stuff, can't wait to try it with other mapsets.
Hey Terminus, have you considered designing your own TC wads to match your characters? It'd be really nice to have one for Booster in particular, since she has such a dynamic moveset that you don't really get to fully explore with most other WADs, and regular Doom enemies don't quite push the limits of her abilities.
I would very much like to, I'd like to graduate from just making mods and turn things into full games.
Fuck yeah! I haven't seen your level design, but just looking at what you've been doing with HND and HAB it's obvious you have an eye for the stuff. Whenever you get around to it, I'd be pleased to see it.
Super cool mod with very creative arsenal! I cannot believe I would have missed it had it not been for itch.io's recommendations.
Thank you for playing!
The only issue I have noticed so far is that I get the following error messages upon launch: "AimingCamera 1: Can't find TID 0" "AimingCamera 10: Can't find TID 0" Thankfully, they do not seem to impact the gameplay.
Out of curiosity, is there a way to disable the main menu music? I have made a special music addon made of Mega Man X midi tracks just for this mod, but I have been unable to override the main menu theme; erasing the ogg file will only give me dead silence and the game will not play my custom D_INTRO!
Finally, have you considered making the mod compatible with Heretic? I reckon it would be fun to fight through those levels with HAB's arsenal.
Oh yeah, and just experienced my first crash with your mod: I was playing Dark Tartarus (thanks for the recommendation, by the way!) and after tasing a Lost Soul, I started slashing at it with the Saber and then, the game crashed. I got the following error message in the console:
VM execution aborted: tried to read from address zero.

I am playing your mod with GZDoom 4.4.2 and ContraDoom_MonstersOnly.pk3.
