Here's another Star Wars/Dark Forces themed mod for GZDoom. I was inspired by previous Star Wars doom mods, especially Ceejay's one for EDGE. It replaces Doom's weapons, enemies and (almost all) decoration objects. I haven't quite gotten around to ZScript yet so this mod is still in DECORATE. Most projectiles are 3d models of Star Wars blaster effects. Gameplay is changed quite a lot, there aren't any hitscan attacks but projectiles typically move quite fast. Infighting is also rare and only happens between imperials, aliens and bounty hunters (they won't attack their own team). The Icon of Sin is also replaced with a more traditional boss enemy... Emperor Palpatine!

And includes new textures and replacement maps from level 20 to 30.
XIM'S STAR WARS DOOM - USER GUIDE
1. RUNNING THE MOD
2. EXTRA CONTROLS
1. RUNNING THE MOD
You can run the standalone version if you don't have doom2.wad for some reason or just want to keep the mod seperate. I have already made a batch file called, Run XIMSWD.bat. If you need to make your own. Here is the batch line I used.
gzdoom.exe -file "xim-STARMAPS.wad" -file "Xim-StarWars.pk3"
2. EXTRA CONTROLS
As well as your typical controls for Doom, you might want to keybind these if you haven't already
ALT-FIRE - Most weapons have an alternate attack, if they don't then pressing alt-fire simply triggers the primary attack
WEAPON STATES - The first three weapons states are used for quickly selecting the grenade weapons. 1 is thermal detonators, 2 is ion grenades, and 3 is IM mines.
