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.

I also have the Steam version of the game and have had problems with this mod.

All I did was download the 5.0.0 version and the 5.4.0 version, I put the Perfected folder from the 5.0.0 version in the Doom 3 directory as the readme says, then I replaced the .pak file with the 5.4.0 version.

When trying to run I get this error:

c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\doom 3\Perfected\script\doom_main.script, line 17: file 'script/proj_utils.script' not found

I have reinstalled the game once and deleted all mod files and redownloaded them and tried again. Still same error.

I am running Winderp 7 64-bit with a Radeon 4870. As such I have also disabled the Catalyst AI as suggested. Problem still persists.

Thanks for your time and please help if you can!

Dude. Use your brain next time. Why on earth would you repplace the 5.0.0 pak file with the 5.4.0 pak file? Did you not notice that the 5.4.0 pak file is a patch? Did you not notice that the 5.0 pak file is almost 250MB and the 5.4 patch pak file is only 16MB. You have to use both pak files. I didn't say you didn't need the original pack file anymore, I said you didn't need any of the previous patch pak files. C'mon. Think dude. Not trying to be mean, but man read better. If you didn't need the 5.0.0 pak file anymore it wouldn't be in the downloads section for this mod. Hope this helps.

I have the Steam Version of this game and this seems to crash everytime I load the mod and go to the "Loading Menu" screen.

Any ideas?

I was reading through the comments and realized how I will not be playing this because I actually bought the game.

How depressing.

Well mainly just wanting the flash light on the shotgun and rifle would be cool. Maybe even the pistol if its possible. Not so much worried about the other weapons. :)

I was thinking that too. Just on the pumpshotgun and the machinegun. We'll see. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have uploaded the patch and it is awaiting authorization. Here's what it does:

Bullet casings now disappear after 1 minute instead of 2 minutes which helps to increase system resources during extended battles. The Cyberdemon and the Vagary have had their No FOV times increased to 2 instead of 1 which now gives you a little bit more breathing room in between their attacks. The Sabaoth boss has had his health reduced to 20000 instead of 30000 and his arm and leg damage scales have been increased from 0.25 to 0.5 which means he's a little easier to beat. I've also made the BFG projectile easier to destroy and its frequency damage has been set back to 5. This makes fighting the Sabaoth easier without making him a push over. He's still a tough boss so stay on your toes. The Baron of Hell now has his own custom green disintegration shader effect aswell as his own green disintegration particle effect. Plus his horns now disintegrate too. The Pain Elementals horns also now disintegrate as they should. The rockets and BFG projectiles now do major skin damage to anything hit by their concussion. So the impact result is a lot bloodier looking on whoever is hit by them or their concussion. The rocket explosion particle stream effects have been reduced to 3 instead of 5 to ease up on system resources. The Advanced Video Menu settings now give you the ability to disable or select the amount of Bloom that you want to use, enable or disable Motion Blur, and disable or select the type of DOF that you want to use. The Guardian's ground pound fireballs have had a reduction in their explosion particle effects that has increased game performance. The Chaingun's projectile impact effect has had the heat haze warp effect removed since you could barely see it and it caused major lag when all of Hell was breaking loose. And last I replaced the Double Barrel Shotgun's firing sound with a much better one.

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?
