+Improved Visuals and new effects:
Many textures and images have been updated and resolution increased. This includes the main menu, cross hairs, particle effects, hud, player model, weapons and some of the enemies. 320+ images were updated and added. 80+ new and updated player animations were done.

+Bug Fixes and Quality of Life Improvements:
The main menu now features an about section. Here you'll find information on the game, the back story and game play tips. Each level now features objectives and tips. Numerous console warnings and errors have been fixed. The player can now carry up to 4 side arms and 3 main weapons. Nightmare mode is now properly supported for those seeking a true challenge.

+New levels, custom levels support and Doom 3 weapons.
All the original Doom 3 weapons have been ported and adjusted for third person gameplay. Each one now features a melee attack and most have a flash light attached. Including other fixes, this allows the use of vanilla Doom 3 user created maps to be played in Rivensin.

BJA's Lost Facility 3 map pack has been ported and included in the download. You can play the levels by selecting them through the new campaign selection in the main menu. The updated version features some minor adjustments for Rivensin's game play. You'll find a majority of the props in the maps can be picked up and thrown or used for cover against enemy fire. This includes vending machines, pipes and even toilets can be hurled at your enemies. Fighting Sarge and running low on ammo? Hurl his BFG attacks right back at him!

+New weapons:
Doom 3's hand grenades have been replaced with a grenade launcher. The current model is a work in progress. Hidden within the Lost Facility you'll find the Assault Rifle. The Rifle has increased damage and tighter spread over the machine gun.

Will you somehow make this a standalone game in the future?

Someday I hope so. However the assets of the game heavily depend upon Doom 3 models, animations and script. The script is the bigget hurdle to overcome to become stand alone.

Lord (Jesus Christ, the Son of God): My heart aches when the ones who I govern live in the midst of sin.
They do not even know it is sin until the sins they commit pile higher and become a tall strong tower.
But I will forgive everyone who breaks down their tower, becomes cleansed, and comes to me.
Your pains are my pains.
Your suffering becomes my suffering.
Everyone who lives in the midst of sin, quickly repent and come back to me.
My path is straight and my bosom is wide and deep.
I have expressed all my love for mankind.
Repent sincerely so that you will not go to Hell.

3 major updates are planned with patch builds as needed. Gameplay/qol/bugs/dhewm port hopefully by the end of October. Then comes the expanded & missing maps update. Final phase will be the narrative elements.

Beta testing will start once I wrap up the last batch of gameplay & qol stuff.

Are you doing this all by yourself, or is there a team?

Just me as of now. In about a month I will be looking for beta testers for the build. I do have help for a source port which will be announced once it feels solid and sure to happen.

I’ll let u know. Will probably start testing sooner rather than later for both the next patch & running on dhewm 3. Testing will be starting on win 64 & 32bit before rolling out linux & mac. Testing will be on going as soon content & hameplay mechanics are added.

Impressive. There aren't much 3rd person shooters running with id tech 4.

Nice design.
