About: DoomDb is a group in Moddb where you can share all the best kinds of Doom WADs out there! (As long as the rules are followed)

1- Always credit the owner. You should also link the owner's homepage when sharing (although that is optional).
2- Its okay to share/post updates about WADs that you are making. If you are going to do this though, don't spam the page with its stuff. A picture or link is always enough ;)
3- Avoid sharing Terry WADs.
4- Avoid any kind of serious discussion in the comments. This group is for sharing WADs and having fun. If the user persists then the comments/image could get deleted.
5- Always contact the author and ask for permission before uploading a wad up here, unless your uploading wads that give you permission to distribute the file in their readme or if they are very old (more than 10 years). Having their mod uploaded in multiple places by other people can make it difficult to ensure everyone is using the latest version. If you are unable to contact the author, or the author says no, then simply don't upload it.


Top Wads:
Many have debated, many have fought, but there is one source that keeps on recognition to those whom stand out from the rest. It started with Cacoawards, but since then a top 100 wads of all time list was started, to cover every year since Doom's release.


Doom 1 and 2 are long in the tooth but that doesn't stop modders from keeping it running on modern systems. Numerous ports that enhance the game to have many options, features, graphical improvements and bug fixes to keep it in tip top shape. The most notable of which:

ZDoom and its offshoot GZDoom (maintained by Graf Zahl), and Legacy (customization focused ports).
Zandronum (older version was called Skulltag)
Samsara (cooperative and competitive multiplayer support focused similar to Zandronum)
& Doomsday (advanced md2 model, lighting and hi-res texture ports)
Chocolate Doom (or a similar one; DoomRetro, limit-removing with some enhanced features, both are faithful nostalgic ports)

DoomVideoVault - For all the doom communities concept art and videos, this site will keep you upto to date, just follow the tumblr group and follow the youtube link. If you wanna get your art featured, pm the facebook page.

Hope mods will base their code on GZdoom pre-2.x because GZdoom 2.x and higher require a better graphics card (needs opengl 3.x or higher) and alot of people are gonna be missing out on some great upcoming WADs, most laptops dont have openGL 3.x or higher and of course upgrading our machines to the next generation is always going to be met with resistance. Naturally moderators on various doom sites don't seem to care.

Well, aside from Total Chaos!
That one needs the better graphics.

I completely agree with you.
It would be nice of GZdoom could add some backward compatibility :) (But I understand that it could maybe be a very hard task)

Doom Reborn Release Date set for September 10th but we still need peoples opinions on the name alpha or beta since me and brent differ on our opinions

We are asking the community to decide since it's for everyone else

if you don't want to sign up to the forum to vote in the poll leave comments and we'll count you,
But if you don't have an account leave a guest comment but give your reason since just commenting "alpha" or "beta" could appear as spam since all guests are just called "guest" :(

Hi everyone, hardcore Doom fans :D

I'm currently making a fan-made mod that continues the story of Mr. Smiley from "DooM 3: Mr Smiley Head's Safari". If you could lend me a hand for mapping, it would be great!

I finally got my own computer after seven (yes, seven) years with the Doom series (The Ultimate Doom, Doom 2 and Final Doom) as the very first games I got from steam and I am so happy that there is all this awesome free content. I am so ****** off at game companies screwing consumers with crappy day 1 dlc content and half-assed game ports, I am looking at Duke Nukem Forever and Skyrim, there is so much love shown to Doom that I am confident that when I have a family I will give these games to my kids so they can know what true games are. Screw any company that treats people like they are stupid or crap. DOOM forever!
