Just to let people know, Doom3World isn't down and out, just down temporally:
Doom3World ain't dead!

Here's the e-mail I recived from it's webmaster:

I'm glad you email me. Been waiting for someone to approach me. The server got compromised, abused for a DOS attack and taken offline by the hosting company. I hope I'll be able to obtain all D3W files back early next week so they can run a fresh install with hardened security. You may want to spread the word about it. All user passwords were stored encrypted. Just in case it's always good to change them after a server breach.

Any news? Got some questions concerning multiple mods in a single instance that's bugging me

If mods have duplicate assets or both have code changes (include a .dll/so/whatever os x uses) then they will have issues together. If they're just asset mods (like a new monster & a new weapon) you should be able to put them together w/o issues.

In my case I'm particularly interested in downloading and testing BloodRayne's Doom 3 Map Builder- I didn't find out about it until after Doom3World went down, but unfortunately it isn't possible to retrieve the download from the cached version of the thread. As I am busy creating a lot of props/models based on Doom 3 assets (which I intend to share with the community) an editor that semi-automates the "room/brushwork layout" process and allows customising/adding details on top could speed up the map work considerably.

whoever said that nothing is ever lost on the internet was proved a lair... again! :)

I didn't realize it was uploaded to d3w until I looked at the cache. Bloodrayne made the Grimm mod, so maybe you can contact him through that: Moddb.com

Well I was thinking of running sikkmod (i assume has some deep changes) and euromod to prove a point to myself about ssao on overly used ambient light. But computer is in pieces, again, so ill have to wait

No clue what euromod is. :?

As far as I can tell, its just an outdoor map of a section of a city during the day. So I'm guessing its just assets and stuff. It'd b a lot easier to explain if my co.outer was working or d3w was up. Anyway the map tries a bright outdoor setting by cranking up the ambientlighting way too high. I think it could look much better with ambient occlusion

I'm guessing you mean the Euro build which was derived from the "Doom 3 can do it too" project?

If that's the case I have that. I'll see if I can combine them.

download sikkmod.
download the eurobuild.
put the sikkmod in your doom3 folder.
put the eurobuild.pk4 in the sikkmod folder.

Do NOT use the other pk4's from the eurobuild mod. They aren't compatible with the last version of D3.

Thanks again Friar! link worked, tried what u said. map loaded, could hear people walking, but black screen, b4 checking to c if my ati drivers were butting in (again) i tried to run a regular mission in both sikkmod and vanilla seperatly. Got error message about some sound thing in console before map even loaded. Hav'nt played doom non BFG in a while, and it seems it doesnt want me to either. So close, yet so far just to prove a point to myself. If u were able to get it running and your familiar with sikkpins ssao implementation, if it turns out well, could u take some screen shots of the place with it on if i dont get this working? I think it might make it look at least twice as good

I had an issue where if I enabled some of sikkmod's features the screen would mess up, so I made sure everything was turned off by default. Since it sounds like the main menu loads try turning off everything for sikkmod then loading the map, then turning on one by one.

Tried that, still black screen. Ended up just reinstalling doom(about time considering the absolute mess the folder ended up from me monkeying around). Renaming the exe(age old amd catalyst foolishness) reinstalling sikkmod and the europk4, and u know Wat? It worked! Thanks Friar! Been bugging me for a while almost gave up. Btw, not sure if u seen the map, but even with just the stock ssao setting in sikkmod, u can c a definate improvement in some cases. I dont know anything about the different types of ssao, and it was right before I left for work so it was really rough, but good to see somehing working. Thanks again

I tried, but he hasn't been online since 8 Jan so might be a while- looks like I'm probably best off just waiting for D3W to go back online.

Well, I've never done any uploading here, I'd rather leave it to the author as I don't remember his name on d3w so I cannot put credits for it. I'll keep the files here to make sure d3w gets it back. I'm reuploading it on filedropper in case you need it.

Thanks for this! It looks like it's the version that was demonstrated on YouTube (28 August 2013):
Youtube.com
I'm not sure if a later version did appear on D3W- but good to get my hands on a version of it to try while we wait for D3W to get back online.

Good news thanks- I thought nothing of it for the first couple of days but I'd been starting to wonder if Doom3world.org had been discontinued or permanently compromised. I'm currently doing another revamp of my mod so am checking out various info on Doom3world- fortunately the Google cache seems to pick a lot of it up, but it'll be far more ideal when the site comes back online!

I've been using the cache too. Handy, but I miss the site. I always found it more useful then modwiki.net because it had practical examples, not just technical explanations.

Worth mentioning there is no middleware at all in UE4. Nor vehicles. Nor extensive gameplay code. It's extremely raw for production.
