The Classic Doom 3 modification is a remake of the original Doom game, by id Software. The main emphasis is that of bringing the older game up to date in a modern graphics engine. The project makes use of all of Doom 3's advanced graphical features while retaining the feel and gameplay of the original game. The project will only cover the shareware levels due to many reasons that include the following : - We are bored of converting over peoples stuff and want to create something of our own. - The mod started off as a fun way to learn how to mod for Doom 3, and we all feel we have learnt what we need to make our own project. - A more minor reason is the legalities of remaking anything past the freely available shareware episode. Our latest build is version 1.3.1 which is the final version that we plan to release. This version is numbered 1.3.1 to reflect the fact that it has been tested to work with Doom 3 patch release 1.3.1, and thus works both with Doom 3 on steam and windows vista..
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Classic Doom 3. We love games like Doom III that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
