Beautiful Doom is the grandfather of most enhancement mods, including the well-known Brutal Doom. First released back in 2008 this mod aims to improve each and every single object in Doom, making them smoother, more impressive visually and having better sounds while retaining VANILLA gameplay. Keeping original vanilla gameplay is the core of Beautiful Doom. You will see smoke, casings, debris, hugely enhanced gibbing system, smooth weapon animations, but it will all play the same as vanilla Doom plays with (G)ZDoom. However, for those, who don't like fully vanilla things, there are two player classes: the 'Vanilla Guns' class will give you guns that only look better but act the same as original Doom guns. The 'Enhanced Guns' class introduced as number of changes: for example fist and pistol are slightly more effective, and many weapons have alternative attacks which, while not really more powerful, provide certain tactical variety. Choose whichever you want!

Is this mod stand alone? Or does it require the original game to play? Where can I get the original game? Is it on www.gog.com??

Thanks
Eric

Hi, Eric. You need the original game for it or rather you only need one hf the original wad files, for example doom2.wad to play it (you can also additionally use some other wad which contains additional levels). You can buy the game itself on GoG or Steam.

But like most mods this wouldn't work with regular Doom. You need what is called a source port — a special software designed to make Doom work under Windows and which also adds lots of various features, including new graphical effects and extensive scripting capabilities.

My recommended source port is GZDoom. It's free. The latest version is currently 2.1.1 and is located here: Forum.drdteam.org (look at the first post and select either regular or 64-bit version).

To play the game with a source port you simply need to unpack the source port in any folder, then drop doom2.wad in the same folder, and then unpack BDoom_61.zip in the same folder.

My preferable way of starting it after is using command line: "gzdoom -file BDoom_61.pk3", and then a window pops up where you choose Doom 2 or whichever original Doom you got. If you don't like command line, I believe it can be done via dragging and dropping the mod file on the gzdoom.exe file.

I'll write an article soon for people unfamiliar with source ports on how to play it.
