Report RSS In the makings of creating a vanilla DOOM overhaul.

Posted by on

Specifically created for DOOM II: Hell on Earth, a mod is in the works for a complete overhaul of vanilla DOOM. Let me be more clear...

The mod is going to contain each of the following:

  • Vanilla DOOM weapons, with the option to aim and reload.
  • New switching weapons animations!
  • A cool name! (I can't think of one right now, but I'm thinking about a "volcano" theme with the name. Maybe "Project: Krakatoa" or something.)
  • Making it as lightweight as possible for lower-end devices (or mobile).
  • Immersive gameplay! For example, it's gonna contain peaking over corners, ledge-grabbing, tilt & swaying, and double-jumping! (You can control movement whilst in the air.)
  • A cool title screen..? (Actually, I'm not sure)
  • Increased value of armor bonuses and health flasks. (much like Brutal Doom's armor/health bonus value system, minus the brutality points)
  • Bullets that you can see flying!
  • Ġ̵͍̣̂͑̚̚O̵̰̲̗͂͝R̸̜̯̳̯̭̲̤͓̤̒́̋̾̋͊̓̕͜͝͠Ë̵̞͓̻̬́̄̀̓̀̇͂̕̕͝
  • C00l lightings!
  • Maybe dual-wielding? (not like Project: Uber's definition of dual-wielding, where you don't dual-wield with the same guns)
  • Custom crosshairs, 'cause why not?
  • Alpha/beta weapons!
  • A quick melee system and the option to kick.
  • G R E N A D E S
  • Smmmmmmmmooooooooth animations.
  • Improved AI.
  • Credits to people from whom I've borrowed from.
  • (unlikely) Angled weapons. Maybe..maybe not.

Things that I'm not adding in:

  • Quotes. Doomguy doesn't need to give me psychotic vibes.
  • Stilleto knives/bayonets. I'm not going that far with melee options.
  • The option to donate. You can chuck your money at the screen but not at me. Keep it. Thanks for your appreciation, though!
  • Different font styles. If I'm going "vanilla" with my mods, I need to stay vanilla!
  • Demon Strength Rune and a Berserk power-up overhaul. (Note: Berserk is still going to be in the game. I'm just not modifying it.
  • Allies, because taking credit for your kills feels way better than just waiting for other marines to get the job done.
  • Somersaulting left/right. If I were to add this, then crouch would have no meaning.
  • Black Gloves, because I just prefer the regular gloves.

I'll post pictures of the work and maybe even release development builds while I'm at it. This could take a few months, or more, I'm not sure. Making mods hurt.

For now, if you want to get something similar to that, just play Daedalus's Complex Doom mod (if you haven't already):
