Title Doom Realism Mod
Version 1.0 update
Team Leader Cody64
Completion Date 10/11/04 (Updated by Dafama on 14/1/2k8)
This is version 1.0 update of the Doom 3 Realism Mod. With this release, the mod has grown bigger than ever, and I am slowly forming a team! As I Write this, We currently have about 10 members, and by the time you play this mod, we should have even more!
The biggest Feature of this version is that EVERY SP LEVEL in the ENTIRE game has been CHANGED!!!!! These Levels now have MORE MONSTERS and WEAPONS, and the gameplay is COMPLETELY different than on regular D3...This Mod is based on one thing....ACTION!!! You will now go through the levels fighting for your life the ENTIRE TIME! The strength of monsters, and power of your weapons have also been altered to allow a much more intense and realistic experience!!!!! It is advised to use quicksave a lot, because this mod is truly difficult....
This version will give you a small peak at what to expect to see in the new sp campaign we will be adding in the future...One noticeable difference between our campaign, and the current one, however, is that ours will be squad based.....The intense combat will be similar though!!!!
This Version also includes Two NEW monsters that do not replace ANY Current monsters...They are the Spectre, and the Nightmare Imp (The Spectre has been included into the upgraded, regular SP maps in this mod). I hope that you will all enjoy seeing them in action as much as I do!!
Also, to everyone who has been worried that this Mod is not balanced, DON"T BE! You might have more powerfull weapons now, but the enemies (ALL OF THEM!!!!) are more powerful now...And some (Such as the mancubus and Hellknight) even have more HP! Overall, this mod makes the Doom3 gameplay MUCH faster, and more intense... You must use all your skill to avoid taking damage, while making precise aimming... The only game I can compare this mod to is Call of duty on the veteran difficulty, whith the exception that I HAVE NOT removed the med packs in this mod....
Some of you might actually find this mod to be TOO Challenging....For you, I suggest bumping down the difficulty by about 1 level...I play on the marine difficulty, which now is A LOT HARDER.... Also, make sure that you all have Quick Save binded to an easilly accessible key, as you should use it a lot MORE OFTEN than befor...
Please leave ME FEEDBACK, So I can continue to improve apon this MOD!!!!
Needs at least the Doom Realism v0.7a full and the next updates to be installed first.
Unzip and place folder into your Doom3 directory.
To use...Activate in mods once game is started.
Delete Doom Realism Folder...
*Note on Mod*
This mod aims at making Doom3 a more realistic (and hopefully more injoyable) experience. I am trying to improve realism by making the weapons more powerfull, Some enemies stronger, some weaker, and most doing more damage...
I am also upgrading the way most of the weapons fire (This is the year 2145, you know). The most noticeable change in this first release is the rate of fire of the machine gun (around 30 rounds per second)! I was very dissapointed with the original machine gun because it lacked the power and fire rate that one would expect from a weapon made that far in the future....
As time goes on, I plan on adding new sounds, new weapons, and grately improving apon the AI of the enemies (this will need to be done to componsate for the more powerfull weapons). Most of this might have to wait for the release of the SDK... I have already done the coding for the double barrelled (Super Shotgun) found in doom 2, but have not been able to get it to work in game...It keeps crashing when I load it.
I am completely open for suggestions from the community when making this mod. I realise that there are many perceptions of the word "Realism" And I plan on making all futur versions based on what the community has suggested and asked for...
I would also be interested in getting help from other coders, and am in need of a moddeller/skinner (Two things i can't do). If you are interested in helping, please e-mail me at:

to use it...
-New Gun, The Devastator (also not in maps until V.5,not ammo....) Type:
-Mahcinegun has had its fire rate reduced (still fires faster than normal) and is much more accurate (Due to popular demand)....It still kicks a lot, which makes it not dead on accurate (Totally Realistic)
-Gattling Gun Now fires MUCH faster, and has faster projectiles
-Plasma Rifle has MUCH faster Projectiles!!!
-TONS of NEW SOUNDS (look at the file size!!!!) Please tell me which sounds you like, and which ones you think need improvement on...
-Also, All Boss Monsters Have been upgraded to make the battles more ballanced, and the Cyber Demon has been made MUCH harder (I thought he was WAY TOO EASY regularly)

-New sounds for shotgun...(It currently makes two completely different sounds....I'll leave it to the community to tell me which one they like better, and I'll change it for version .04)
-The grenade is no longer on your weapon cycle, press grenade key to toggle it (no more having to toggle past it to get to a better weapon!)
-All monsters are now more powerfull (make sure you don't get hit!)

-you can now jump slightly higher than before, which makes it easier to get on top of those boxes that used to be such a pain to get on...

-Shotgun insanely powerfull (C'mon, a Military isued shotgun in the year 2145 should at least be more advanced than what we have now) Spread has been reduced...
