Fragging Free is a Doom3 single-player modification.

FF has a precise objective: to bring the classic gameplay to the maximum.
We've found D3 gameplay good, but it was too slow and static if compared to older id games.
We worked hard to create something better and now we have a really fast and fun gameplay with crazy fights and much more challenging enemies.

In Fragging Free you'll find lots of action, lots of monsters, lots of power-ups and a well-balanced gameplay that will push your skills to their limit.
"Free" is the word that summarise the essence of this mod: no more limitations (instant weapon change, high walk speed and ut-style dodge abilities, no falling damage, no need to hold a key to run, ...), no objectives to follow, no stupid puzzles to do... just focus on fighting and have fun.
If you love Doom, Quake, Unreal, Serious Sam, Painkiller you know what we are talking about.

MAIN FEATURES:
- Fast gameplay: instant weapon change, high walk speed and ut-style dodge abilities.
- 12+ new huge maps filled with adrenalinic fights, lots of secrets and many outdoor sections.
- 19 weapons: we added what was missing do D3 and adapted the old ones to fit the new gameplay.
- Weapon powerups.
- Demon possession: fight as a demon in 3rd-Person Perspective...every monster has his own abilities and unique gameplay!
- Bullet time mode allows to gain health and move 2x faster. It can be recharged by collecting demons' souls or obtaining new medals.
- New/reworked enemies with new AI and attacks.
- Friend marines with advanced AI: they can choose different weapons according to the situation, they can talk and cooperate.
- Custom Sound Track.
- Drive a vehicle.
- Medals for special kills and map statistics.

If you are looking for a fun and challenging classic-FPS, this should be your cup of tee! :D

Hello there, just wanted to barge in to show my appreciation for this mod. I will just say that you truly captured the same good feel the new Doom games have in Doom 3. Now, Doom 3 in the style of Classic Doom/Quake, let alone getting close to that of nuDoom, is truly a majestic achievement. It is extremely odd how nobody ever made a mod to fix (change, depending on opinion...) Doom 3 like this except this one, and I was genuinely shocked the first time I learned this was last updated in 2020. You deserve a lot of praise among modders, I say -- and the fact you actually patched the main campaign and RoE to make full use of the gameplay changes really elevates it on another level. This is on par with a Classic Doom total conversion, if you seek some recognition, don't let Classic modders trample you, most of them got NOTHING on this.

Thank you very much!
It's not really about recognition, we just loved working on it and we kept playing over the years.
Happy to see you are enjoying it too!

Could you put an ultra low graphics settings option in this?

Hi, unfortunately there is not much that we can do about performance.
Doom3 is single threaded so it does not scale well with modern cpus and there could be some frame drops when there are lots of polygons in a few places.
That said, it should run well. I still use an 8 years old cpu.
The only suggestion I have is that in windowed mode performance seeems to be noticeably worse than in fullscreen, at least for me.
Good luck!

I don't care what the Doom 3 fans say. This is what the game should have been from the beginning. I can't wait to try this mod out.

Is there a way to increase the ammo capacity on weapons? and also if i want to ride a More powerful monster like Hunter Helltime how do i do that because the possession powerup doesnt work on powerful monsters and if i want to be a sentry bot how do i do that?

Hi, you can basically control any monster (ok, maybe a couple are not supported?) through console commands.
The syntax is:

spawn monster_type name monster_name; ride monster_name

Note that in Doom3 there cannot be 2 entities with the same name at the same time, otherwise the game will stop with an error. Reusing the same name is fine as long as the older entity has been removed.

For example:

spawn monster_hunter_helltime name myhell; ride myhell

add 'rideable_timemode 0' if you want to disable the countdown:

spawn monster_hunter_helltime name myhell rideable_timemode 0; ride myhell
