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.

fixed the Mars City Underground scripted events that didn't work correctly
made the marks left on walls and objects by the chainsaw glow for a short time
added orange glowing symbols to the branded Hellknights' bodies
added more screen resolutions to the options menu
all weapons make blood splatter on the screen when attacking monsters at close range
doubled the size of the shoulder lamp light
blood spraying on screen from close range gunfire and monsters hitting you now looks the same
added the ability to dual wield the double barrel shotgun
added the sikkmod menu for better optimizing of individual hardware setups and more game options
fixed a crash in 3rd map - Return to Mars City
added particle effects to the nightmare imp fireball projectiles so they can now be seen
removed chainsaw cutting feature where you were pulled into your enemy
spawned sentry bots via console commands now move around as they should

Under Development:

adding glowing eyes to the Dead Souls

reducing bump mapping on some of the lesser seen textures to remove distortion

adding slow motion effects to all of the monsters' deadly attacks to help the player react to them before they strike

add a melee system for all weapons to let the player bash an enemy at close range
- all weapons are done except for the Chaingun, Rocket Launcher, BFG, and Soul Cube

add Last Man Standing Coop compatibility to let players play PD3 with that awesome mod

Ideas Being Looked Into:

I was also thinking about making the adrenaline pickups allow you to slow down time like Max Payne to get you out of a tight jam. Since I removed the stamina feature from the game the adrenaline pickups have been obsolete. So I thought this would be a nice feature that they could be given to add to the gameplay. That or I could just replace them with berserker pickups.

Has anyone noticed that with Venom's HQ menu, you can't overwrite an old saved game? Also, sometimes menus will overlap each other if you open them, resume game, then go back to the menu. Is there a fix for this? at the very least, I want to be able to overwrite an old saved game, so I don't have like 50 save files. :P

Found another big issue with Venom's HQ Menu. The skill level is set to "0" (recruit) no matter what skill is selected with a new game. Did Venom actually playtest his menu after creating it? Seriously, those are some huge bugs, and I will be deleting his menu completely until someone fixes these glaring issues.

Never noticed that. Nightmare seemed like nightmare to me. I'll check that out too again.

I noticed that I am getting horrible lag each time an imp shoots a fireball (fps drops to 20-30). It is related to the projectile lighting, because if I turn "g_projectileLights" to 0, the lag goes away completely. Nothing else lags the game but this. I don't want to remove the lighting effect altogether. Is there a way to tone it down?

If you're not using your own custom config for the Sikkmod enhancements then that's your problem. Just wait till version 7 for the Sikkmod options menus to be available. I'm sure that'll fix your problem.

Thanks for answering all my questions! I appreciate it. I did some more testing, and I actually think that the biggest impact on my fps is the parallax mapping. The imp fireballs are merely the final straw that drops my fps. If I use the original Sikkmod interaction.vfp (which doesn't have parallax mapping), the fireballs no longer lag the game. However, I do like the lighting the best in the Perfected Doom interaction.vfp. Is there a way to disable parallax mapping, but keep the rest of the changes you made?

I'm using a slightly different vfp file then Sikkmod but I'm afraid that the place i originally got that vfp from is no longer available. There was a no Parallax version of what I use too. In version 7 however I'm switching to whatever was in Sikkmod because of optimal performance. All vfp's that come with Sikkmod will come with version 7 of PD3.

I have tried quite a few different vfp files online and taken screenshots to compare them to the one currently in Perfected Doom. The closest match I could find that eliminates parallax mapping is in Sikkmod 1.0, although the highlights/glare are too intense at times compared to the Perfected Doom vfp. The vfp files contained in Sikkmod 1.1 and 1.2 are quite a bit different, and honestly don't look nearly as good. It's too bad you don't have the Perfected Doom vfp without parallax mapping, because I think that version would be the best compromise for the average gaming computer like mine. Do you remember the author or name of the vfp file you downloaded for Perfected Doom? I could attempt to search for it. I think it looks the best by far, and I would be using it if not for the drop in fps caused by parallax mapping.

Just for reference, my computer has an i5-3470 processor with 8GB of RAM and a Geforce GTX 550 Ti (1GB) card. I didn't think a game as old as Doom3 would be able to bring my computer to its knees, but evidently parallax mapping does just that!

Hey VGames, did you use any of the interaction.vfp files in this mod? It contains a lot of interaction files...

I don't think so. I'll look and see if I still have the pack that has them. I don't think I do. I'll reconsider keeping the original PD3 vfp. We'll see.

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?
