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.

Of course. The next release will be Perfected Doom 3 with the latest graphics enhancements from Sikkmod. You won't have to do anything except install it like normal.

I've decided to ditch the iron sights feature for every weapon. I realized after incorporating a nice iron sights pistol mod into Perfected Doom 3 that I really don't like using the zoom mode at all. I never use the zoom mode when I play Doom 3. So instead I'm going to convert the zoom command into a secondary attack mode activator. When you press the button to zoom you will turn on the secondary mode for a weapon. And when you push the button to zoom again you'll turn off the weapon's secondary fire mode. So far I've got the pistol's secondary fire mode working fine. It fires every last bullet in your clip at one time. Very powerful. It has it's own firing sound too. The shotguns will have a very tight spread for their secondary modes and the machinegun will fire off 30 rounds at once each time you shoot when in secondary mode. I think the chaingun will have a slower more accurate rate of fire. The rocket launcher will shoot a homing missile, the grenades will explode on contact, the plasma rifle will fire off an explosive plasma round, and the soul cube will release 2 friendly Baron's of Hell that will assist you for a short time. These are just ideas for weapon secondary attacks that i believe I can pull off.

Put it in the doom 3 folder like you did. Don't put it in the base folder. Are you using an ATI GPU?

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?
