I take no credit for any of the features this mod offers. I have compiled mods from many different creators into one package, solely for convenience. The only thing I have done myself is edited and/or deleted some of the files to make them compatible with Dhewm3 and the other mods, and adjusted ammo counts/health pickups/etc. If any of the original creators would like their mod removed from this package, please contact me and I will remove it as soon as possible. (I found the AI scripts and audio log mods through links on a Steam forum, both with no discernible author. If you made one or both of these mods, please let me know and I'll add your credit to the list.)


INTRODUCTION:

HD Veteran+ (v2.1) brings a challenging, refreshed, and exciting way to experience DOOM 3. This mod greatly extends the difficulty of the game; the player will take more damage from enemies, deal less damage to enemies, and pick up less ammo throughout the game. The enemy AI scripts have been edited to make them more aggressive as well. To balance these setbacks, your arsenal has been re-worked to fit a new combat style; every move you make is now a careful choice, and can be the deciding factor between life and death. Choose your weapons and strategy wisely!

In addition to gameplay changes, this mod greatly increases the graphical quality of the game. Textures and models have been updated to look more vivid and crisp, as well as the lighting and shadows. AI and weapon models are more detailed, the UI is now in full HD, and the loading splash-screens have also been updated. All of this adds up to make the game much more vivid and atmospheric.

I highly recommend this mod for both new and returning players of DOOM 3. Good luck, and have fun!


INSTRUCTIONS:

DOOM 3:
-Unzip the file using an extraction software such as WinZip or WinRAR
-Place the "HD Veteran+" folder in your DOOM 3 directory (not \base)
-Select HD Veteran+ from the mods menu
-Start a new game and enjoy!

RESURRECTION OF EVIL (v2.0 only for now):
-Unzip the file using an extraction software such as WinZip or WinRAR
-Place the contents of "d3xp HDVet+" into the "d3xp" folder in your DOOM 3 directory -OR- Create a new folder in the directory, copy "pak000" and "pak001" into the folder, then copy the mod files (this keeps the mod separate from vanilla RoE)
-Copy zzz_pak004, 005, 006, and 007sikk from "HD Veteran+" into either "d3xp", your separate mod folder, or "base" (these files contain most of the HD textures and lighting)
-Start a new game, or select your modded folder from the mods menu
NOTE: adding files to "base" will affect your vanilla DOOM 3 installation, but you can always just remove them after playing RoE


FEATURES:

-Stronger and more aggressive enemies
-Fewer ammo pickups throughout the game
-Less armor and health gained from pickups
-High quality models, textures, lighting, and other graphical aspects
-A redesigned arsenal of weapons
-Realistic audio log sounds
-High quality UI and splash screens


IMPORTANT NOTES:

Use Dhewm3 to play this mod!

This mod works best, and has been faithfully tested, using the Dhewm3 sourceport. Attempts to play it with vanilla D3 have been varied; at first there were multiple graphical issues, including problems with widescreen stretching and textures not loading. After completely reinstalling the game, the mod was running smoothly. Upon starting the game again after closing it, however, the graphical issues returned. This mod is also incompatible with the Lost Mission expansion pack, even in Dhewm3; the game will crash randomly, textures will not load, difficulty will remain unchanged, and the UI will not be formatted correctly. If you would still like to try and play it with these issues, just copy everything inside the "d3xpHD" folder into "d3lm". (If anyone who is more well-versed in modding/coding can fix any of the issues listed above, then please do! I am not very experienced when it comes to this kind of stuff, and I'm sure there's a fix that I'm just not seeing.)

If you want to alter graphical settings, please use the "autoexec.cfg" file in the mod folder. Attempting to do so from the main menu may cause problems. Everything you can safely change is inside the CFG file, and you can also add new lines to the file at your discretion. (I have already added a code; an FOV setting. Feel free to change this to your liking)

This mod causes the sentry bots to have a super high rate-of-fire. This was not intentional by me, and none of the original mods included listed this as a feature. Regardless, I think it adds to the game in a positive way, making the sentry bots a very useful ally during harder sections of the game. I couldn't find out what was causing this, so I unfortunately have no idea how to remove it if you don't like this change.

Hope you enjoy playing this as much as I have, and a HUGE thanks to all of the D3 modders out there! None of this would be possible without all of your hard work and dedication.

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs and I'll try my best to fix it.

I'd love to try this but I've either screwed up big time or this is suffering from a whole new, unique version of Sikkmod's old AMD problems. Not sure how to get screenshots in Dhewm but every texture is pure black other than computer screens, lights and reflections.
Tried dealing with the usual solutions to the issues with AMD cards, didn't seem to change anything, so I'm not sure if that's actually what's going on or not.
