Plutonia Easy

About This File

This patch makes Final Doom's "The Plutonia Experiment" easier. I was really annoyed when I started playing "Plutonia" and found that I couldn't even beat it on the lowest skill setting. I'm only an average player (Doom2 on Ultra-Violence is comfortable) so I'm sure I'm not the only person who had trouble with The Plutonia Experiment.

I wanted to make a simple patch rather than fine-tune every level. I gave up on The Plutonia Experiment after only a few levels mainly because of the Chain-Gunners (long- distance snipers and ambushers who suddenly pop up out of nowhere). So, is all this patch does is get rid of the Chain-Gunners and fix the ammo imbalance caused by the missing chainguns.

Here's a list of the changes: - changed Chain-Gunners to Shotgun Sargeants - swapped chainguns and shotguns - swapped bullets and shells - added the chaingun back to map01 (otherwise you wouldn't get it until map05)

Just downloaded it to test how much easier Plutonia gets. Sadly, it's not worth it. Not even one bit. Since the author will never, ever read this, I will just advise all following visitors not to try this; it will permanently change PLUTONIA.WAD, and if you have no backup, you're kinda screwed. Anyways, 0/5. Keep trying kid

Hello. I've downloaded this mod to see if it was worth... it's not. Sadly, I didn't made a copy of Plutonia first, so you owe me a original Plutonia IWAD file. Because your mod SUCKS! Plutonia is already easy! Why do you need to make it so easy that it's not worth playing? See you on youtube: "Shittiest Doom MOD ever made." Oh, BTW: 0/5. -Martin ... I just saw that I redownloaded Plutonia again! Phew...

Lol, Plutonia isn't hard come on :) If you can beat Doom II on UV, Plutonia won't cause you too much trouble... 0/5

If it's a joke, it's worth 0 ; if it's another "omg I'm hardcore I must play on UV" player, it's worth 0. So, 0/5.

Looks like Sparky needs some skill tuning for Plutonia or is too slow in reaction time. How does swapping shotguns for chainguns and chaingunners for seargeants gonna help unless you have good evasion skills? 0/5

Doom 2 on skill 4 is much harder than Plutonia on skill 1. You should be able to beat it. Learn to strafe (and circle-strafe), hide behind cover, conserve and use ammo wisely, and save often. Plutonia is definitely beatable for an average player, it just takes a little more effort. You gave up too soon. -Stormwalker

Sure, feel free to have fun pistoling the bigger enemies to death on maps with no chaingun. Skill 2 is the way to go on Plutonia if you want it easy. The Casalis put effort into making it fun, balanced and easy. Same for HR, which has finely tuned battles that an automated substitution will royally screw up.

If you really think you can beat Doom 2 on Skill 4 and not Plutonia on Skill 1, I think you really can. Making this patch to replace chaingunners with shotgunners doesn't do any good here. You shouldn't have much trouble with Plutonia on skill 1, but you can't just give up just because it's too hard. Give it a little more effort instead of making a stupid patch to make the game easier than it's supposed to be. Otherwise, what's the point of having a challenge in the game and building experience if the game has no purpose?

 

Some people may find it useful but as for you, the uploader, I think you need to make the description more clear. You could just say "This patch is for people who have trouble with Plutonia even on the easiest difficulty" in the description instead of saying that you can beat Doom 2 on skill 4 and not Plutonia on Skill 1.

This isn't a half bad idea, as Plutonia is my favourite doom level pack but not instantly accessible to people who never played Doom. However, replacing chaingunners with shotgunners? Lamest idea ever. 0/5

Why do u need to make a wad that takes away all the fun and challenge out of Plutonia into a complete baby game? Plutonia is supposed to be difficult. That's so dumb. If you at least tried putting a little bit more effort on skill 1 of Plutonia, you shouldn't have any problems at all. If you really can beat doom 2 on UV, Plutonia on skill 1 should not be hard for you. Replacing chaingunners with sergants is the dumbest way to make Plutonia easier.

I like your patch man, congratulations on your work and not be sad with negative comments after all who wants to play hard are not required to install your patch. 5/5 Stars

This is dumb, clumsy and unnecessary. Plutonia has skill levels implemented, and they work far better than this piece of junk.

Plutonia is intended to be hard. If you want it easy, go play something else! 0/0 - Kirby

Who cares how it was supposed to be, people are free to modify it however they want and there is nothing wrong with that. We live in a time of the wonderful cultural shift where people can not just consume art works, but also rearrange and reorganize them to their own needs. Anyway, this patch does exactly what the readme says and some people might find it useful so there's just no reason to rate it 0 stars.

All of the above comments already described my problem with this WAD, why should I even bother to point them out again. One more thing, this sucks, and it needs to be rewarded with a cacoward. That said, 0/5.

The idea has merit, but it would have been simpler to just swap in chainguns in place of every heavy weapons dude. And it could have probably been done with DeHackEd instead of modifying the IWAD. But why bother though - everything went downhill after DOOM Episode 3 (except for Heretic).

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.
