5.56mm Full Metal Jacket is a Doom 3 multiplayer total conversion which takes place in fictive environments all over the world in the year 2020 where the 2 remaining superpowers (West and East) send their best men to outplay the enemy and be first to dominate the area of operation. The special forces teams consisting of battlefront experienced marines, skilled engineers and expert scientists fight it out on a great variation of different maps which range from huge deserted outdoor complexes to the narrow spaced metallic stations of the 22nd century. FMJ is one of the very few multiplayer online shooters that provides absolute precise damage and ballistics calculations. Every bullet fired in FMJ is actually rendered as a single 3d bullet object that travels through the virtual space. Furthermore FMJ makes use of Doom3's introduced per-poly-hit-detection-system. FMJ makes use of the "unified light and shadowing" concept to the fullest and renounces faking or skipping features.

5.56mm Full Metal Jacket is a Doom 3 multiplayer total conversion which takes place in fictive environments all over the world in the year 2020 where the 2 remaining superpowers (West and East) send their best men to outplay the enemy and be first to dominate the area of operation. The special forces teams consisting of battlefront experienced marines, skilled engineers and expert scientists fight it out on a great variation of different maps which range from huge deserted outdoor complexes to the narrow spaced metallic stations of the 22nd century (time travel).

FMJ is one of the very few multiplayer online shooters that provides absolute precise calculated damage and ballistics calculations. Every bullet fired in FMJ is actually rendered as a single 3d bullet object that travels through the virtual space being affected by physical parameters such as gravity. Furthermore FMJ makes use of Doom3's introduced per-poly-hit-detection-system which is superior in any thinkable way compared to the system used in common 3d shooters (hitboxes). FMJ makes use of the "unified light and shadowing" concept to the fullest and renounces faking or skipping features.

Accordingly to your team you receive the full weapon-arsenal available supported by your side. There are 7 classes of weapons ....Fists/Flashlight, Pistols, Shotguns, Sub-Machineguns, Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles and Grenades.

FMJ is a full FPS/3PS shooter combining the best of both worlds letting you play the game the way you want.

FMJ features 25 unique maps and 3 different gametypes which are: Capture the Flag, Team DeathMatch and Capture & Control.

The player can choose from 11 unique player models picking the avatar that fits him most. To enhance gameplay and game-fun fully customizable and voteable AI players have been added to the game which can run in dedicated or listen server mode and render the gamer independent to an internet access. Features like "player inactivity control" or "server banning" are just some of the tools provided to serveradmins.

FMJ version (1.00) has the latest post processing effects added like Motion-Blur, DOF, FilmGrain (4 different steps), Edge Dimming and Bloom (4 different steps) to add even more current-gen eye candy to the game.

FMJ 1.00 is crossplatforming and fully compatible with Windows Vista, Windows XP, MacOS and Linux.

Loving the bot matches, very exciting and good for practice. Although i believe a good idea for a later update (Not sure if there will be) i believe it would be a good idea to have the option if monsters will spawn on maps (Only monsters such as zombies, maggots, trites, etc) it will add more to coop and competitive sense to it as bot players and monster will also attack each other as well as the two teams fighting one another. Although it may never come to this i believe it will make this mod perhaps be the most fun mod i and perhaps most Doom 3 fans will ever play.
