A total conversion monster/weapon replacement mod with a few maps that will play much like the original game but have a vastly different look and sound. As you can probably guess I'm going for a grimmdark dieselpunk, 40k siege of vraks kind of atmosphere putting you in the role of a fanatical religious zealot on the front lines of an apocalyptic war against demon worshiping degenerate cultists.

I thought you were refering to the issue with the keys but maybe you need to press - and you will see health armor and ammo.

You need the latest version of gzdoom with a doom 2 wad. Drag and drop both the pk3s in this file into the gzdoom exe like you would with any other mod.

Google "winrar" download and install it and use it to extract the files.
It's pretty common.

Hi! Really great job, I can't wait to see the full release!
I've noticed a bug: after a certain point (I think the one where you wait with your soldiers for the incoming attack), you stop picking up ammo for the gun/machine gun. You just walk over them without picking them up.

I think you have got the maximum amount of ammo fire off some shots and see if it lets you pick up.

Hi! No, I checked, I didn't maxed the ammo for the gun. I just stopped picking up gun ammo even if I had room for more. I ended up running out of gun ammo and had to resort using the shotgun.

I've played a lot of Doom mods over the years, and I have to say, this is one of the best I've played in recent memory, especially in terms of total conversions. You've done a fantastic job of nailing the atmosphere of gritty, brutal warfare. Another thing that you captured masterfully is the tension. Yes, tension in a Doom mod. You don't feel like a 12 on the 10 point scale of badness, but like a rank and file footslogger trying to survive. Yes, there are points where you are loaded up on health, armor, and ammo, but not for long(no spoilers, but if you know, you know, and it kicks all kinds of ***!), making it feel very much like a survival horror type of experience. After I finished playing through, I IDKFA'd to see if there were any weapons that weren't included or I missed, and I'm gonna have to do another playthrough and see if I can find the you-know-what. I also can't wait to see what else will be added to the arsenal.

Pros:
Amazing atmosphere, setting art, and sound design meld perfectly
Very tense feeling, keeps you on edge as you're creeping through trenches and bunkers
Good enemy design, monsters match their Doom counterparts while still feeling unique and threatening
Good weapon design, weapons are strong, but handle differently enough from vanilla Doom(feels like a reloading mechanic could be appropriate, to add to the survival-horror feel, maybe as an optional mechanic)
Good level design, not maze like, and appropriately reuses areas when you do back-track

Cons:
There's only one level so far, I need more!

Hi Randomacid. As someone who has vaguely played any wads and just tried this out because I'm going through a 40k phase, what other amazing wads come close to this? I've tried brutal doom but the monsters are either **** easy or very hard. What do you recommend? What are some of the best wads you have played?

Thanks man I may or may not keep that weapon in its basically the "cobra gun" from mikemacdees robocop mod I had it in there for testing with other map wads.
Probably going to keep the standard doom infinite mag as I don't want to stray too far from the basic doom formula (or create too much work for myself)
A common complaint with my maps/mods is the difficulty so I was sure to drop and extra load of health and ammo pickups to make it easier on people and currently there is only one difficulty setting.
Glad you think I nailed the atmosphere was what I was going for the most.
Thanks again.

For reference, I was playing on Ultra Violence. It was a good challenge, and punished bad positioning and missed shots, but was nothing too bad for an experienced Doom player. There was one time where I backtracked to the bunkers to top off my health, so I can definitely see other people who consume those earlier than I did having problems. If you add multiple difficulties in The future, I feel like like this is a good baseline, since it feel like the intended experience.

It's just incredible, all ****** in a **** hole next to the corpses of several of my brothers, the truth is I have high hopes for this project, it's great that you separate the map of the weapons and the enemies to be able to test them separately With other mods, I recommend the painkiller or alien vs predator sound effects for future enemies and for ambient sound effects, this reminds me a lot of necrovision but mainly of this:

Exceptional on all counts.

The mechanics and level design build on the atmosphere just as well as the artistic direction. It absolutely captures a "trench horror" aesthetic with hitscanners that peg you from awkward angles and enemies hiding around every corner. The hitscanners hit hard enough that if you aren't careful, they'll cut through your health in seconds. It really forces you to constantly manage what's going on above and around you as you painstakingly and methodically work your way through each individual threat, right before the level forces you into a fight that no longer lets you set the pace. The mechanical escalation is flawless, peaking at that moment right before letting you come down with some descending action as you work your way back to the exit.

The addition of non-hitscan enemies really adds the perfect mixture of challenges for the player as well. Despite evoking a similar game feel as Blood (of course I recognize those wails in the BGM), Blood struggles to provide a threat with many of its non- cultist enemy types beyond bosses (and even then with mixed results). This mod does not. The projectile enemies challenge your movement while the hitscanners contest your positioning. Flying enemies and fast tanky brutes threaten to compromise your position if you don't kill them quickly, and the laser cyborgs act as versatile microbosses that manage to challenge you on every one of these factors.

Not too much to say on the weapons as they aren't anything too exceptional from the traditional weaponset except that now the pistol is such a staple in the combat. Now that the damage isn't trash and the machinegun runs on its own ammo system, it fills a strong niche as a long range weapon for picking off the less hardy but hard-hitting enemies. The level design equally works to facilitate this.

The use of low walls to suggest crouching and evoking that sense of crawling through the mud under gunfire, as well as the Killzone-esque use of lit eyes to help the player pick out enemies in the smoky haze also deserve mention. Excellent design there.

The one thing I might suggest is perhaps modifying the functionality of the Nightmare difficulty. Instead of the traditional self-reviving enemies system (not exactly optimal for a game that seems to build on limited resources), consider perhaps a mixture of UV-Fast and Blood's difficulty management. Make some enemies move faster and shoot faster projectiles, while the hitscanners' reaction time is dropped. Maybe even cut down on some of the ammo and medpack drops (I started out scrounging but was quite flush with ammo and had plenty of health packs left by the end of the level).

I cannot wait to see what's in store for this mod. Quite an excellent showing already.

Yeah you pretty much nailed everything I was going for thanks man.
Difficulty is a tricky issue for me personally as I usually make things way too hard I was sure to drop extra health and ammo everywhere, Ill have to spend a decent amount of time tinkering with it.
Thanks bro.

I honestly think that the UV level of difficulty in this mod is still excellently balanced for most moderately experienced players. However, I have beaten all 4 base episodes of Blood as well as 4 mods on Extra Crispy and I wouldn't mind having a kind of no holds barred level of challenge beyond the common difficulty if you're up to offering it.

Of course I understand it might also be a challenge to reprogram the Nightmare difficulty, as not many mods do it. So whatever you're capable of

indeed keys were a huge issue !
yes i pressed - and the health & ammo were appeared but the thing i mentioned is a graphical hud like a rectangle area and put a face from main character and details .
one other thing that i assume can make look wh40-ish is to put a commissar as the first person which talk to you about the red key
and if possible and you like to i recommend to put a Imperium style sword or a chain sword as a melee weapon beside the kick .

Thanks for great demo it was one of a kind and i wish my ideas can help to improve your game and the gameplay .

Ill fix the key icon issue but not having too much experience with hud design I will probably keep it basic like it is now.
I am indeed going to add a chainsword like weapon for close quarter killing and I will expand on the npcs too machine gunners/officers etc.
Thanks dude.

I'm curious to know if you'll ever re-do your stuff into original official works so that you can put it on a storefront like Steam so that people like me can support something like this. I absolutely need this "game" in my life, it really looks incredible and always wanted a WH40K-esque Doom FPS!! :)

Also if anyone cares or is curious to know - I did get this launch and run on Zandronum 3.0 (since it's a sourceport I main and wanted to see out of my own curiosity if it would work). I couldn't tell you what features/mechanics are missing/bugged by using this unintended sourceport but I'm using it now and haven't noticed any game-breaking errors, etc. that I believe isn't from the game itself.

Hey are you loading both pk3 files into gzdoom application at once?
You need to load both files (sorry if you know this) hold down ctrl and click on both pk3s and drag them into the gzdoom app.

Hi! i have a problem for some reason the games fps goes down and when i pause it it goes back to normal fps its kinda annoying and frustrating especially when i get crowded on that one level where you have to hold your position.

nevertheless it is a good game and it has a good aesthetic and a lot of potential.

and seeing that its inspired by 40k it really shows mostly on being a Death korps of Krieg guardsman.

also add a reloading mechanic to give a sense of urgency when shot and make their shot count essentially.or something
