Perfected Doom 3 was started as a simple tweak mod years ago. After realizing that I was still not happy with Doom 3 after making some alterations to weapons and enemy stats I continued to add more to the game. Now Perfected Doom 3 is more then just a tweak mod. It attempts to completely overhaul the entire game with new monsters, rebalanced weapons, rebalanced monster stats, better graphics, new gameplay features and much more. It has been met with great appreciation and acclaim by it's users. This mod will bring many improvements to standard Doom 3 and it's Resurrection of Evil expansion.

5. Machinegun - Increased the bullet damage to 20, now holds 60 rounds per clip, and can fire 30 rounds per second and now has a max ammo amount of 360. The weapon's bullets now having a homing capability which makes it ideal for longdistance combat aswell as mid range combat. Better metallic look and firing sound.

6. Chaingun - Enlarged the clip size to 500 rounds and raised the max ammo amount to 1000. Added a better GUI to allow one to see 3 numbers better. Also upped its firing rate and set its spread to 6.

Also added a glow to the grenade that lights up a small area around the bomb and it now throws out shrapnel upon explosion.
Secondary Mode: Will explode on whatever it hits.
8. Plasmagun - Better Damage. Faster projectiles. Added a radar to the weapon aswell. It fires twice as fast. Plus clipsize is now 100.

Secondary Mode: Fires off a guided missile at a slower velocity that will home in on the enemy that was under your reticle when fired.If there is no one in you crosshair when this mode is used the missile will go drunk and fly in any direction it wants which could lead toserious injury or death.
10. Soul Cube - When it hits a monster it will make a lot of blood spray out of the beast. Knives have a better metallic look.
Secondary Mode: Will spawn a Soul Knight on your crosshair position to aid you in battle. Aim at the floor to keep from getting your Soul Knight stuck in a wall. If needed you can teleport him around the map so that you won't leave him behind using the "Teleport Minion" command. Be warned, due to engine limitations the "Teleport Minion" command can only be used 19 times in a single map no matter if you have a Soul Knight spawned or not. Use him wisely. You can spawn in as many as your PC can handle.
11. BFG - A lot more powerful and now has better explosion effects. Better metallic look, explosion sound, and it now fires off extra projectiles that are guided and will inflict extra damage on the targeted enemy. The number of guidedprojectiles that are fired out will depend on how much the weapon is charged.
Secondary Mode: Fires off a lightning quick bolt of energy that does the same amount of damage as a Level 2 BFG projectile but has no blastradius and only uses 1 round.
12. Flashlight - Set its damage rate to 15 since the fists damage rate is now at 10. It should have a much wider beam. Also, it does not make flesh wounds and it does not make blood spray when used as a melee weapon. Also tweaked the light to make it even more real looking.
13. Chainsaw - Has been upgraded to a metal cutting chainsaw with a glowing, red hot chain. Now has blood splattered along the bar and a little on its body. It cuts and burns through your enemies at the same time.
14. All guns now have the same muzzle smoke effects whether they are being fired by monsters or humans.For example, the Cyberdemon's rocket launcher has the same smoke effect as your Rocket Launcher.
15. All bullet types have the same spread no matter who's using them. For example, The Cyber Demon's rockets have the same spread as your rockets.
16. All ammunition pickups have been changed to make them more realistic. For example, the single machinegun magazine pickup now gives 60 rounds because 1 magazine can hold 60 rounds. And the double machinegun magazine pickup now gives 120 rounds.
17. All bullets now have tracer effects.
18. Velocities have been set for bullet types depending on their size. So the bigger the bullet the faster it can move.
19. All weapons will push the player backwards when being fired. The push amount depends on the weapon, and for some weapons the push will add some difficulty for the player trying to use them.
20. All weapons that have metal on them now have a better metallic looking textures.
21. All damage values for the different bullet types have been balanced out to a very realistic amount.

Monster Changes:
1. All damage ratios for monster attacks have been doubled or greatly increased.
2. All ZSec Zombies' weapons and the Commando Zombie's chaingun and Sawyer's chainsaw now do the same amount of damage as your weapons.
3. All Zombies are very tough now. You must get a headhsot on them to bring them down. That includes the ZSec and Commando Zombies. Body shots are harmful but pointless.
4. Monster health values have been tweaked.
5. All characters now have different damage scales for their body parts depending on their size. So if you try to take out a Hellknight with arm and leg shots, it'll take a while, but with headshots and chest shots, you can chop him down much faster. Same goes for all the monsters, NPC's, and the Player too. Arm and leg shots do little damage. Players beware, get hit in the head by a severe attack (gunshots) and it's almost positive that you will die instantly.
6. All bosses' health have been greatly increased depending on their rank.
7. The Cyberdemon's missiles now do the same amount of damage as your missiles. Which means instant kill if a direct hit is made.
8. The Revenant's missiles do about half the amount of damage that your missiles do and they are slower. But they may be able to score an instant kill if a direct hit is made, so do not underestimate.
9. The Mancubus's projectiles do about the same amount of damage as your missiles, just slightly less, and they are slower. An instant kill will be made if a direct hit occurs.
10. The Cyberdemon will now fire missiles at you continuously as long as he can see you. Just like the old versionfrom Doom.
11. All monsters NOFOVTime has been changed. The monsters will pretty much always see you if you are in their FOV range. Which means they won't let up on attacking you as much now.
12. Zombies are now able to be resurrected by the Archvile. So now the Archvile can have all of the monsters, except for the Bosses, at his side.
13. The Vagary's debris attacks now do more damage when they collide into you.
14. The Archvile's Flame Wall attack can now go twice the distance that it originally could.
15. All monsters' dodge rates, except for the zombies', have been multiplied by 4. Expect more dodging from those demon bastards.
16. The Wraith is now much harder to combat against. Expect a more difficult target to hit.
17. The chaingun-wielding Commando's accuracy has been tweaked quite a bit. He's still tough.
18. All of the Z-Sec Zombies' accuracies have been tweaked quite a bit. That way they can't get off a headshot as easily, but they are still pretty tough.
19. Imps now throw barrels at you if there are any around.
20. All enemy AI has been greatly tweaked to make them even more fearsome. Don't expect any of the monsters to just walk into your gunfire, especially the ZSecs.
21. All monsters with metal on their bodies, except for bosses, have a much more realistic metallic look to their metal body parts.
22. Added in the Pain Elemental, Dead Soul, and Baron of Hell which all have their own FX, sounds, and attributes.
23. Added the Spectre Pink Demon.
24. Added the Nightmare Imp which is camouflaged like the Spectre and is twice as hard as the Imp in every way. Plus his projectilesand their explosions are camouflaged.

Deadly Attacks:
These are all of the attacks done by monsters that will severely wound you or kill you instantly.Be very cautious of these attacks, they are very deadly. If an attack is marked instant kill thatmeans that it will kill you instantly if your are hit in the chest or head. You may live if hit inan arm or leg but more then likely you won't. If an attack is marked severe damage that means that you may be able to live through a head or chest hit and you'll more then likely live if hit in the arms or legs.

9. Added a shoulder lamp that you can turn on and off while holding any weapon. It has a smaller light radiusthen the flashlight but is very helpful. It never runs out of energy just like the flashlight.

Blood and Gore:
1. Gibbing is gone.
2. Blood stays much longer.
3. Blood now squirts out of the bullet wound that you put on a monster for a short while. Very cool effect.
4. All monster attacks that should make blood spray now make blood spray. The amount is dependent on the damage ratio of the attack.
5. Added small, medium, large, deadly, and Soul Cube specific burstysquirts. The original burstysquirt acts as the medium sized version of the particle effect with some added effects.
6. Blood is now darker.
7. Added a much better blood spray effect to the chainsaw with smoke and fire added.

Sound Changes:
1. The opening menu music is a song that was actually the foundation for the Doom 1 level song for the first level of the third chapter called the INFERNO. That song was from Pantera's album Vulgar Display of Power, and it was called Mouth for War. True Doom-ites will recognize it right off the bat.
2. Added better zombie sounds.

4. Added better double barrel shotgun firing sounds.

16. Added new sounds for secondary fire modes.

Graphics Changes:
1. Added new shaders to make the game's lighting, normal mapping, haze effects, and shadows more realistic. Plus relief mapping has been added for more depth in the maps.
2. Raised the heightmap values for all textures and skins a whole lot. This gives extreme depth to all of the texturesin the game. Rocks look like rocks, fabric for clothing looks like fabric, metal looks like metal, etc. The gamelooks 100 times better. And best of all, it doesn't add any kind of framerate lag.
3. All objects, monster parts, or character parts that should have shadows now make shadows.
4. All objects, monsters, weapons, and characters now have selfshadowing enabled making the game look even better.
5. Added the latest graphics enhancements from Sikkmod such as HDR, SSAO, Soft Shadows, Bloom, DOF, Motionblur, and so on.

3. Added the Spectre to several maps.
4. Added Barons, Deadsouls, Nightmare Imps, and Painelementals to the Hell map.
5. Added the new monsters to several more maps.

Main Menu Changes:
Thanks to 6th Venom I have incorporated an awesome new main menu system that brings the main menu in Doom 3 up to date.You no longer have to restart the game to make video changes and you now have a level select. Plus the visuals are topnotch and I spruced it up a bit more by sharpening the Mars planet texture and increasing the bump mapping for theplayer models in the model select section of the multiplayer options. I also edited the weapon keys section of the optionsmenu to include the double barrel shotgun. So you can set it to a certain key like the other weapons. Plus I added some newadvanced graphics options to allow you to customize the new Sikkmod features.I also added some control functions to the control section of the options menu. So you can select a key for the new features such as the shoulder lamp, teleport minion, and secondary fire mode just to name a few.

Awesome work. What I'd like to do is keep my current copy of Perfected Mod since I've done alot of changes of my own to it and just extract the Sikkmod implementation from 6.0 and add them to it. Upon 6.0's release, could you tell me how to do that?

6.0 doesn't just have Sikkmod stuff added to it. I added some new monsters, added a lot of script to most of the weapon code to include secondary fire modes, added to a lot of the maps, added new commands to the menu system, added new sounds, and much more. Plus I removed many things from 5.4 and replaced that stuff with better up to date stuff such as the explosion effects. You're on your own with that stuff. You've got a lot to do. If you come to a stand still I'll see if I can help you out. But I'm gonna more then likely take a break from Doom 3 modding until I get a lot more material to work with from my friend doomtrinity. So again, see what you can do and then ask if you have trouble. Good luck.

Np. I'll check out 6.0 before I do anything. I may not even bother playing with my current tweaks and just play with 6.0

I just gave 6.0 and I've gotta say that it's quite amazing. I'm so impressed with it I've decided to scrap my own tweaks and just play 6.0

Good job man. This is probably as close to finished as Doom 3's ever going to get.

In the back of my mind, I knew it wouldn't take long for me to change my mind. I've decided their's alot of things within my own version of Perfected Mod that I just can't play without. I'm going to dissect 6.0 much like I did with 5.0 originally, and implement what I like from it into my mod.

Don't worry. This time, I won't be pestering you with newbie modding questions. I've decided to learn on my own this time around. Regardless, 6.0 is awesome. I'll be sure to rate it up.

When I try to launch, it crashes when attempting to load the menu. What (non-steam) version of Doom3 does this require, by chance?

Does this work with the Doom HD mod? if so which should you install first?

Shoulder lamp doesn't work for some reason.... I'm looking at the code right now but I'm inexperienced when it comes to scripting.

Shoulder lamp code is in the source code. So u can't change it. The lamp works fine for me.

What type of graphics card do u need in order to run this mod maxed out including the texture addon? As I'm running a GTX 560Ti and while the game doesn't max out the GPU (it says it's running at 71%) - with the texture mod I can't get a solid 30FPS. I'll reply to this comment on my exact FPS number without the texture mod as I'm reinstalling everything from the ground up to specifically give accurate numbers across the board. But I do know for fact that with the texture mod included in the addons section of this mod, and this mod maxed, I can't get stable 30FPS at 1080P. So I'm wondering what GPU i need?
