Whoa! This mod is awesome!

everythings great, the amount of crashes that so far do not have any fixes (or people do the "i fixed it so lets not tell anyone" mentality) have just ruined it, until things find a fix or such, this will remain a 3/10

Using this , im jumped into another feeleng into the game. All i can say to the developer of this mod: RESPECT ! You did it just amasing.

This mod is really welcome to be available for the Coop an ROE !

Excellent mod! I had to do 2 things to make it playable;
1) the catalystAI thing which is described by the authors of this mod
2) set Camera/View effects to off in the in-game options

GREAT MOD! I recommend this to anyone who wants a good graphical experience from DOOM 3... Good Woork !

Best looking Doom mod I've ever seen,
Greatly graphically balanced, It feels like a remake of the game for today PCs.

Its just Perfect!

Graphically, the mod is excellent and boasts some serious visual refinements and overhauls that breathe new life into Doom 3's horribly dated visuals. However, technically, the mod is nothing short of a complete disaster. Unavoidable crashes related to certain characters merely speaking to the player is a glaring nuisance that's entirely unforgivable. It's made worse by the fact that these crashes occur EVERY SINGLE TIME these characters go to speak. The first crash occurs almost immediately during the first few minutes of gameplay, specifically the "welcome to Mars" phrase the first encountered NPC utters. Skipping to the next level was warranted, and thankfully allowed, but any hope that the next NPC dialogue section wouldn't cause the game to crash again was quickly crushed. The NPC in question attempted to do a "Mars Sec radio check," which promptly caused a crash. Every. Single. Time. Tweaking some of the settings before loading the aforementioned sections again didn't rectify the issue, any time.

This mod was something that could've been completely enjoyable, but sadly, it's unplayable due to a glaring level of technical ineptitude or incompetence. It's hard to know which.

5/10

Nothing is truly perfect but Doom3 Absolute HD 1.6 is a masterpiece of blended and refined upgrades for a classic game that does it justice and keeps its playability and atmosphere untarnished-Beautiful work!

Just for the time and effort that this mod saves, it should get a 9/10. Don't think that you can match it by installing one or two of the included mods yourself, even after the fiddling with them. There will be tearing, aliasing, light balancing, and missing textures to deal with.

Absolute HD works out of the box with anti-aliasing, soft shadows, HDR, bloom, and all other good things to come out of a decade of modding. Modern lighting mods for other games like Quake and the original DOOM series, can go too far in my opinion. In Absolute HD, the black and white thresholds are a good compromise between dynamics and wash-out, and can be tuned more to taste. All mod options in this package are clearly organized and configurable (straight from the in-game menu for the majority of them).

Thanks to this mod, I'm playing DOOM 3 after years of relative disinterest. For both the effort and good taste that went into it, it deserves a 10/10.

About performance, I'm using a 4670K i5 with overclocked GTX-970, and only disabling soft shadows, the game runs at solid 60 fps with default scale factor 1.2 anti-aliasing (FXAA), which to me looks like 4x super-sampling but limited to the edges, so interior surfaces like tables may be jagged. This is a limitation of FXAA, you could instead force SSAA in NVIDIA inspector (not tested).

In a nutshell, this looks better than Left4dead 2 and runs just as smoothly, while DOOM 3 is over 10 years old.

My only request would be about the variable FOV when walking and sprinting. The narrowing FOV when running takes some of the speed out of a sprint, and I think the FOV change profile is too abrupt. Is there an option to disable this feature completely?

Thanks again!

Having all the mods that I want, Sikkmod, texture mods, and animation mods. Bless you creator for this mod
