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!

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.

Both Rivensin & dhewm3 can run on linux if the source code is compiled for it... something I currently have no access to myself. There are step by step instructions to do so on Dhewm3’s github.
