Arguably everyone's least favorite boss. So why not bring it to Black Ops 3.

By the way I'm open to suggestions on how to improve him (I don't want a 1-1 replica of the Tranzit version) so feel free to give your opinion.
This was the first time I've tried to script a shooting enemy, and I think it turned out alright. Still needs some FX work and sounds.

maybe the boss could add bonus points or a fire sale drop if he was defeated without anyone getting shocked

Been working on some buildables:

This is most likely the last scripted feature I'm going to add (other than the easter egg of the map). As for a release date, hopefully it will be done by summer.

Since I now have some time to work on this mod again, I've decided to start posting weekly updates. So here's what has been done in the past week.

Mapping:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Scripting
-Due to map balancing and a frankly a hellish amount of script issues that I can't fix, I have had to change afterlife to a more soe beast style mode. 
This basically means removing the last stand abilities.

Afterlife now contains the following purposes:
-Shock to power up traps/generators
-Can shock zombies to teleport them away
-Faster movement, low gravity and access to special areas
-Can shock revive other people (custom feature)
-If anyone has any further ideas to compensate the loss of laststand, let me know.I really don't want this to be a completely pointless ability
since it has taken so much time

-Both boss zombies had issues with coop (not attacking player properly) but are now fixed.

-Avogadro fx has been moved over to csc. This should prevent issues from fx not always showing up.

-Finally found a fix for instakill not working. Fixing this also fixed some wonder weapons.
Other:
-Created custom gloss maps for all BO2 and Ghosts weapons, since they didn't have these.

-All snipers now use BO3 style dual-render scopes.

-Started working on custom chalk textures for wall weapons.

-Weaponfile fixes.

Weekly Update #2


No pictures today, there's really nothing to show/I don't want to spoil all areas


This week was the first coop-test of the map (I guess you would call it an alpha build). And of course, there were some good and bad things to notice.

A pleasant surprise was that we didn't really experience any game-braking script issues. There were no crashes and all features worked relatively well.

There was a game-breaking bug though. For some reason the map has these invisible walls, that block access to many areas. These are weird because

there's literally nothing I have placed in radiant in these spots, yet these "walls appear". There doens't appear to be any errors related to this in the compile log either.

I have no idea what this issue is, I have never seen anythinglike this. Hopefully it will get sorted though.

The other concern was the map size. Due to the map being so big, especially earlier rounds seemed to go quite slowly. Will improve on this as well.

Other updates:
Mapping:
-Entire map is now clipped
-Entire map is now zoned
-Added new routes for zombies to get to players

Scripting:
-Re-scripted avogadro and engineer "choose spawn" logic. The older one, which was based on debris/door flags, was inconsistent and had some issues
if the area was opened elsewhere.
-Improved avogadro projectile shooting, projectiles disappearing instantly should not be an issue anymore
-Avogadro now has the ability to teleport to nearby players, if the players are too far away. I'll also script the tranzit style avogadro teleporting soon
-Added shield buildable
-Added traps (thanks to Harry and Symbo)
Next week I will start scripting the boss fight.

I don't want to spoil much, but if you've seen recent updates, you might have already seen mr boss guy ;)

So much for those weekly updates but the modtools have been a pain the last few weeks. First of all the mapfile broke, so pretty much everything mapping wise is the same as it was 2-3 weeks ago. After that, APE stopped working and refused to open.

But anyways, here are some in-game pics (lighting might look different since I have settings pretty low on BO3, looks better in radiant)

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Mapping:
-DETAIL, lots of detail that pretty much disappeared with the map file. So nothing much on the geometry side
-Made huge areas harder to train at
-New lighting, new LUT (still tweaking it)
-Fixed (majority of) invisible walls

Scripting:
-Now uses original BO1 characters to go with theme of the map. (Thanks to The Indestructable Mike Pence)
-New characters also fixed the playermodel revive issue I had with Chronicles characters
-Added Fire sprinters. These start spawning later on and will sprint to the player and blow up. Killing them from distance is your best choice
which shouldn't be too hard since they have low health
-Added origins mud (thanks to Ardivee)
-Upgraded Olympia lights zombies on fire, just like in BO1/BO2 (this is actually scripted in BO3 if anyone wants to use it, works with any weapon)
-Added blue progress bar for afterlife
-Added shock hints for afterlife
-Fixed afterlife jumping
-Scripted MOTD style afterlife number code, may be used in the Easter Egg
-Scripted a "pre game area" where players spawn upon connecting. Host can change gamemodes and start the game, clients have the option to vote what gamemode they want
-Scripted Gun Game
-Pretty much all wonder weapons are now done with proper fx and functionality (still trying to create a tornado fx for the upgraded wind)
-Origins style digsites (may not be 1-1 functionality, since I have never played Origins)
-Boss fight started
-IMS is now buildable and functions just like any other buildable in the game
-IMS now uses the exact same code as any BO3 placable killstreak from MP, so no more issues with alignment/clipping into walls
-Return back to unedited behaviour for zombies, since coop had issues with zombies ignoring players (needs testing)

Other:
-Added Shangri-La zombies from Zombie Chronicles (thanks to Erthrock)
-All weapons that have been in previous zombies maps are now upgradeable (If anyone has good name suggestions for Ghosts weapons, let me know)
-New weapons: Vepr, IA2, UTS, MSBS, MP443 (single and DW)
-All weapons are now in the box, altough you can't pick them up for some reason
-Tweaked zombies speeds and other gameplay balancing

Some early gameplay of the map. Lighting and detail in outside areas is still not finished so they look quite bad.

 Map layout is done, most of the map in general is done. Weapons are done. All it's pretty much missing is the easter egg and bossfight. And of course some things need some polishing. I can't think of anything on the easter egg side, which is why it's taking longer than expected (I don't want the easter egg to be just random soul chests).

Also due to my current life situation I'm only home once every two weekends or so, which is why I barely have any time to work on the map.

I do have an early version of the map in the workshop, which I have sent to a few people, and if you're interested in trying that, you should PM me.
