    Well, I have decided as I have a cool idea for a mod, I'd better do something about it. So in the last days I worked hard, starting a new mod (yet unnamed, but current work name "Golden Uprising").

    Current team:
    Graphics and story: DoomJedi
    Mapping: Tricob and Ronwolf
    Coding: WLHack(?)

    Story:
    450 000 years a go, an advanced alien race called Annunaki, came from their planet Nibiru to Earth in order to get gold to save atmosphere of their home planet. At first they worked their own "woking class" of "lower" annunaki, but after hundreds of years on working at the gold mines, the workers revolted against their masters. The solution was to create an ape-annunaki genetic hybrid called the Human to work at the gold mines, which eventually in their turn revolted agaist annunakies, with the help "from inside" by Annunak called Enki.
    I still don't know which episode the game will depict, but it'll be either the revolt of lower Annunaks against their masters, or the revolt of Humans against the Annunaks. Maybe the other one will be a sequel/prequel. The decision will also define the main character's background/identity.
    Currently finished:
    all the enemies beside bosses, almost all of the weapons, all the backgrounds, hud faces, some textures and scenery, title screen.

    Current enemies:
    1. Annunaki guard (replacing normal guard)
    2. Reptile (replacing the fast officer)
    3. Nordic (replacing the automatic rifle guard)
    4. Nibiruan beast (replacing mutant)
    5. Imp (replacing dog)

    Weapons:
    1. Electric shocker (replacing knife)
    2. Reptilian arbalet
    3. Annunaki rifle
    4. Nibirian beast's energy blaster
    5. TBD

    There is something called Anubu and Aniku. They sound like your Annnaki. Good luck, but i dont think i can do anything but beta test.

    The Arbalet is addicting weapon, I made the whole animation to it, and it's soo realistic. You'll love it.

    ...well, I see a lot of beta-testing help around here...though currently I need guys like coder and mappers. though all sounds will have to be replaced as well...I have all the sounds I need in wav, and music in mod/s3m format...now I just need to know how to convert those to wolf3d format and insert those in.

    Well, I've finished all the 7 Bosses for this mod - made virtually from scratch (about 95% of the sprite), but keeping original wolf3d quality....you'll be most impressed.

    ...and a new screenshot

    If you'd know english, you'd know that it's called "mistype" and not "wrong spelling".
    Teem instead if Team is wrong spelling
    Reem instead of Team is a mistype. Mistype usually involves letters that are close on the keyboard.

    Screenshots show very limited range of enemies, graphics and themes of the mod.
    The mod actually is much more impressive than can be seen from the screenshots...mainly because of relatively slow mapping progress.

    Oh thank you Smile

    The progress is relatively slow though, because somehow more focus currently falls on my other in-dev mod.
    But don't worry, we are working on it...just recently finished the intermission animation...graphically and even coding-wise it's basically finished, so all is left is to finish the mapping.

    Once Sonder SDL engine is finished, Eridu won't need much additional changes...coding-wise it has pretty little unique coding features of it's own.

    Generally, after playing "Lost World part 1" so far I think epic is a strong word for Eridu. But it'll be an excellent mod...that's I'm sure.

    After playing "Lost World part 1" I think I'll use the fog much more than originally planned...and not only shading.
    Fog doesn't fit Sonder much, but it fit's Eridu very well.

    Actually, new Sonder4SDL engine supports Eridu as well, so Sonder4SDL is basically Eridu4SDL as well.

    So (Eridu being my next mod after Sonder) Eridu will need only mapping, as it's art is done, and coding will be done when Sonder4SDL finished.

    This is good news for how soon Eridu will be able to be released.

    Look of Eridu4SDL:

    Secret of Eridu Empty Re: Secret of Eridu

    Post by Dean Thu Mar 04, 2010 11:12 pm

    Thanks for your interest in the project Stathmk! Smile

    This hasn't been worked for at least 18 Months I'd say. Eridu WILL be made by Team Raycast, the same people that are currently finishing off SonderKommando Revolt. We have all the files, artwork etc. and 1 completed level.

    We haven't decided what mod will be worked on next but it will be either this or Sonder 2, but as a team we will keep working on mods together, that's for sure. It will probably use the Sonder4SDL engine as a base which means it won't take anywhere near as long as the 3 years it has taken to make Sonder.

    Secret of Eridu Empty Can artificial intelligence finish making Secret of Eridu?

    Post by stathmk Fri Jun 23, 2023 5:44 pm

    DoomJedi, I would have loved for this to be finished and released!  Some of the screenshots aren't loading up anymore in this thread.  I do remember that they had a Mesopotamian cuneiform look on the walls.  I do know of Mesopotamia's Sumerian/Akkadian/Babylonian cuneiform language with The Gilgamesh Epic, Utanapishtim's flood, and multiple gods.  So today, I saw on my phone an article about how machine learning or artificial intelligence can translate certain things about cuneiform.  The article even includes that it causes the computer to have "hallucinations!"

    Maybe machine learning can finish making this Secret of Eridu mod?  I had once read an article about how machine learning is now being able to make Doom 1993 levels that are challenging with variety according to beta testers!

    Thank you for your interest in this old project (developed at times where I was a fan of the late Zecharia Sitchin theory/conspiracy and based on his series of books).
    I still have big love and expertise for sumerian culture but I'm not part of weird conspiracies anymore.
    Mod itself - I can freely pass art/plot/level list to a serious modder of serious intent to make such a mod.
    We even have first map made for it.
    We have SDL based exes for it - one based on Femstein and one based on Sonder.

    Indeed.

    That's impressive, sure not part of general public interest/awareness.

    Maybe machine learning can finish making this Secret of Eridu mod?
    Maybe in the future...and maybe even now, but I don't know how to get and apply AI to such mod.
    We still have full plot details of the mod and detailed level list and one can use it as reference.

    I had once read an article about how machine learning is now being able to make Doom 1993 levels that are challenging with variety according to beta testers!
    We have for many year now algorithmic Doom level generators, most famous of which is Oblige.
    So no machine learning is required but maybe they can improve results.

    I typed, "Maybe machine learning can finish making this Secret of Eridu mod?" and I had forgotten to mention that I was joking.

    I think that Zecharia Sitchin was misinterpreting not just Sumerians, but also a civilization or empire called The Hittites.  I'm inferring that Hittites aren't as famous in America.  Sitchin talked about space aliens longer than he should have.  Space aliens!?  If you have a neighbor born in India, Southeast Asia, or Indonesian islands, then ask him his opinion about what would be an extinct breed or species of an orangutan-like hominid called gigantopithecus.  At least 2 American writers want to believe that Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Skin-walkers, or The Yeti are gigantopithecus!  Or they want us to be believe that Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Skin-walkers, The Yeti, or gigantopithecus are giants from The Bible and/or space aliens!

    What's that mad Halloween pumpkin thing with 2 arms, 2 legs, a face, and fangs in the next to the last screenshot that you posted!?

    Feel free to upload those Dropbox photos!

    I appreciate your very respectful email message about how things have changed over the years, you don't have as much time to make game mods, and also who I should contact for permission to archive game mods.

    That's why part of Eridu takes place in space.
    And later on Nibiru.

    In general - Sitchin didn't really knew well Sumerian and all he did was mis-translate and mis-interprete sumerian mythology into his...concept, that includes seeing gold seeking aliens everywhere, Nibiru and other weird stuff.
    Proper Sumerology one can learn on such channels:

    His name in Eridu plot was Imp (dog replacement, described in Eridu plot as "result of a bad genetic manipulation, those are fast and violent, though quite brainless"),
    but all the enemies were taken from "In Pursuit of Greed" Shareware/Demo (which had Wolf3D-sized enemies that needed no resizing - unlike the hi-res ones in the final version, donnow why those are so unused in Wolf3D modding).

    Feel free to upload those Dropbox photos!

    Sadly didn't find spaceship level screens (might look more for those in the future)

    and also who I should contact for permission to archive game mods.
    Supreme Leader Smile of "Blade of Agony" is Daniel aka "Tormentor667" Gimmer, all related permissions should come from him.

    He has accounts on many Doom forums as well (and even on Keen forum)

    That space level is just gorgeous. If ever, at any time, there is even the slightest hint of this project being revived or retooled, please let us know.
