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.

Glad to hear that but I think I'm even more excited for you guys to play it. The weapon enhancements alone give so much more room for tactics. Increasing the amount of firing modes from 2 to 4-5 for every weapon has really taken the mod in a fresh direction while at the same time keeping its main trait of giving a more difficult game to the player. Not overkill difficult but tasking.

I was pushing for the end of this year but it may be early next year. The spider mastermind addition is taking longer then expected and I'm still working on weapon enhancements and polishing things up. But more then likely the spider mastermind will hold things up. I don't mind though. From what I've already seen and played it's well worth the wait.

Thanks for understanding. Hope everybody feels the same.

Just got done adding a scope with zoom capabilities to the machinegun and also 4 fire modes total. Sadly I had to sacrifice the aim down sights feature to allow all these cool features for it but it was worth it. The scope in 1x mode works just as good as the old ads mode. Plus the scope mode fires a homing bullet. So fun.

Replaced my BFG Edition with the original Doom 3 (With RoE) and tried this out as soon as I could, and my god is it gloriously epic. Nice job.

Thanks man. Just wait till the next release. Just got done adding a scope to the rocket launcher with zoom in and out capabilities and was still able to keep the 4 different fire modes for it too.

No I've done so much to each weapon there's no way possible it will work unless some serious editing is done to fuse everything together.

It appears that response is wrong, and I am surprised. All the features of the Realistic Weapons mod have passed on to this mod, and I can tell, by the pistol, the shotgun, and most noticably the grenades. Maybe the creator did do some serious editing. I did not purposely mod the two togeter, the mod is extracted to the base file of Doom 3, but is not manually run. Though everything else is fine, the iron sights, the dual pistols, the secondary fires, all of it is fine. Just the mod merged with Perfected Doom, I guess.

Some of the features from the realistic weapons mod has been in PD3 already. I do not recommend adding new anything to the base folder while running others mods. If u do this with version 7 u will lose a lot of what the weapons have to offer.

This is the best complete overhaul I have seen by far. THanks! Makes playing it again like playing a new game. Love, love, love that you gave options for the DoF, bloom, film grain, etc. How did you do the depth of field, tracers, motion blur? Could you do the same with Quake 4?
