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.

So far I've been successful in adding the Sikkmod graphics tweaking menu. Now you can set up the game's new graphics enhancements just like you would in Sikkmod. I've redone some of the options in the options menus to compliment the new Sikkmod menu.

I've fixed the sentry robots that you spawn in by console. They now move around as they should when spawned by the player.

doomtrinity will be looking into the SDK source to remove that chainsaw cutting feature where you are pulled into the enemy that you are cutting up. I've grown tired of that feature.

He will also be adding into the game the ability to dual wield the Double Barrel Shotgun. I've found myself not using this gun nearly as much as the others so I wanted to give it a feature that would make me see it in a whole new light. So what better way to make the gun cooler then by letting you use 2.

Anyways that's it for now. More to come.

Very nice mod but why did you increased monsters' healths and attack damages? It's very hard.

This mod is pretty nice, I like the new effects and secondary fire options. However I have run into a nasty bug in the new level only hope. If I save and reload anywhere after the starting area the map crashes to the console saying "couldn't load console". Any attempt to re-load the map again will just result in the same message, so basically if I die I must do the whole map again. I haven't the slightest clue on what to do here, I have never gotten an error like this before.

Well I've finally beaten this mod and I have to say its pretty impressive, although there are some flaws here and there. The error I mentioned above appears to be caused by the Soul Knights. Spawning them the game will still work fine but if I use the teleport command to move them around, this error will occur. Saboath's death cinematic also froze while a soul knight was spawned. Despite some bugs I think the soul knight is just overpowered and makes things a bit too easy, I only found him useful in the additional hell levels but other than that they make things far too easy, saboath's fight was over in less than a minute with one of those beasts by my side. I think (and this is just my opinion) that the soulknights would be better off removed, besides the soulcube is already kind of overpowered enough as it is. Other gameplay issues arose throughout as well. List Time!

Monster quantities:
One thing that I really disliked about vinella Doom 3 was how over-scripted it was and that monsters mostly spawned one at a time, the majority of these being imps. Sikmod took a step in the right direction and added random encounters, however that feature was poorly optimized and caused some annoying issues in curtain levels. I don't know if you ever plan to have a feature like that but if not than I think an overall increase in resistance would be nice to see in Doom 3; and have more powerful monsters port in more often. Like for example, as you progress imps will start to appear in large packs, than they will start being supported by nightmare imps, then revenants, and archviles will start to appear as the more basic hell infantry, imps just being cannon fodder at this point. Same for maggots, eventually pinky's and specters will spawn in their place. And I really like the addition of the nightmare imp from Doom 64. I don't know if you plan to or not but I'd like to see nightmare specters and caccodemons.

Monster Quantities continued:
Another thing that bothered me about the original game was how rarely you encountered certain monsters like, the riot shield zombies, mancubi, pinky's, fire zombies, the chainsaw dudes sort of made sense but I would still like to encounter them more than twice. Now before I move on I'd like to ask, do you plan on having zombies get back up after you, that was a neat mechanic from the old E3 Alpha that the retail game removed.

Redundant weapons:
Alternative fire for weapons was a pretty neat idea, but I think more work should go into them because a lot of the current alt fires just make the weapons kind of redundant. Like the machine guns alt makes it a more accurate shotgun, the plasma guns giant ball makes it an alternative to the rocket launcher, the chainguns alt is basically a rapid rocket launcher. The grenades are fine and I like how you fixed that annoying bounce issue that Vanilla Doom 3 had. I'm not saying you should remove the alt fires, just tweak them and make them feel more diverse because as they are now the weapons feel kind of interchangeable.

Damage system.
I like the aim for realism here, having powerful attacks one shot you does make the game more intense, and in turn you put out very high damage as well. This both seemed to work and at other times not. This seems to feed into the weapons issue a bit as well and overall can make the game too easy, Powerful monsters like arch-viles, revenats, and commando zombies would go down quite easy, greatly reducing the challenge they were in the original game.

Damage System Continued:
Hellknights/Barons of Hell, mancubi, and Cacodemons/Pain Elementals were the only monsters to absorb a good amount of bullets. I Suggest having a mixture of your new combat along with Vanilla Doom 3's. Powerful attacks like revenant missiles and hellknight fireballs can still on shot you and monster can still get critical hits but the damage & health systems should revert back to the original.

Doom 3's physics.
I like the idea of not having the monsters dissolve after death, however this caused the rag dolls to glitch at times. Doom 3's physics system isn't all that great, so maybe its better to have the dissolving demons and gibing return.

Everything I listed here is only my opinion, these are just suggestions to help improve the mod. Its great so far.

Well thanks for the input and feedback but I like things the way they are. This mod is coming to a close and I think the way things are is great. I see your points but I truly think I've found a nice middle ground for all of the additions this mod adds. I never aimed for balance so that's why some features like the Soul Knight are so powerful. He's supposed to be. But the mod kind of balances things out anyways with the instant death attacks that most monsters have. So there's that. Anyways look for the next release soon. It'll have more optimizations and dual double barrel shotguns.

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?
