About This File

Beautiful Doom is the grandfather of enhancement mods, born in 2008, updated multiple times, and now in 2015 it received the ultimate update. Since then it has improved a lot.

It's a mod that keeps original Doom gameplay but introduces lots of special effects and visual enhancements for deeper and more thrilling Doom experience.

AUTHOR HERE. I'm really unhappy to see that version 6 appeared as an update here, while it's actually quite a different mod in terms of quality and the number of features. It's been five years since previous version, so it's not a surprise.

Has it's minuses but otherwise an amazing mod at keeping classic gameplay while providing advanced scripts.

Not all it is claimed to be. Beautiful Doom in fact makes some noticeable changes to gameplay balance - purely visual upgrade this is not. On the visual side some of sprite replacements look really amateurish and bad, as do some of new effects. There are better SFX mods out there, that also don't touch gameplay in any way (stuff like Smooth Doom that can be combined with particle fire enhancer or some of loads of others compatible SFX mods)

This mod was pretty awesome back in the day. Not so much when played today. It was left in a very buggy and unfinished state, with some pretty questionable changes to base game.

For those who complain about the problems with the rocket launcher due to the shootable gibs when they have auto-aim on... if you're playing with auto-aim, then you're the one with the problem. Try playing without it for a change, it's far more fun, and you'll find that you score more hits than with it on. Anyways, 4/5 for the WAD.

5/5 stars. Suggestions: edit the pistol firing speed to fire 5% faster. I had a blast playing this. its like Doom+ but without the reload. I love it. -Blox5320

Pretty slick stuff, unfortunately some things bother me. Changing the lost soul sprite was completely unnecessary, especially when you decide to change it to something inferior. The pistol sprite looks really odd, the black gloves are ugly, and the chainsaw scraping metal sound is something that would make you commit suicide after hearing it for longer than 30 seconds. The rest is great though, I just wish I could get the amazing lamp/torch lighting that Doom Enhanced has along with this.

It's brilliant, but doesn't work correctly with Knee Deep in ZDoom. 4/5.

Why is there a 512 character limit? I can't think of enough nice things to say about this mod. Simpily put, it's one of best DooM mods of all time. Awesome job, man. 5/5. ~ Lava Grunt

Your voting it down because it doesn't work with something it was never intended to work with anyway? ok.... This mod is over-hyped, a lot of the new stuff is actually ugly, out-of-place odd, and been done countless times before, have 3/5

having to use "only monsters" for auto aim is stupid and green blood for every enemy is retarded. plasma balls look stupid and just kinda fade into the enemy, it looks weaker just by that alone

GZDoom 1.1.04? Just say “latest SVN version, get it here: http://svn.drdteam.o rg/gzdoom/“... “Shootable gibs are cool“ I disagree, it hurts you with auto aim on and using the rocket launcher, when you want to hit the enemies that are behind the gibs (but it is possible to change that in the menu)! Also: why doesn’t the blood stay? It’s like in Quake 4, it’s not good! ...Other than that it is decent 3,5/5!

The author's a dick but the mod isn't. It's rather quite nice, actually. I doubt being a Hitler even makes one's creative works automatically suck. And this is way better than "Mein Kampf." -Xaser

Very good, although the fist & the SSG reload is a bit delayed and no twin handguns. 4/5 - XxZ3cr0t3rn3rtYxX

      What a set of maps. At first I only expected random maps that use use Mario textures, but this is so much more. From the cutesy bullet puffs of the weapons, to the plasmagun sprites, there have been more changes than "just" textures. All together they form a very, very coherent picture which makes you almost disappointed, that there are no Mario enemies in the game.   Even then, the actual quality of the maps surprised me quite a bit as well. Very, very fun to play from the beginning to the end, with admittedly frustrating parts (the map featuring only Archies and Revenants or the map featuring ice and wind. Oh god, the ice...). These are not just simple techbases given a Mario texture paint, these maps are well thought out and tailored to the textures, ranging from grass lands, over desert to impressive castle scapes and even an air ship. I played on TYTD not only because I am a wimp, but also because those maps are really, really hard and have some frustrating moments. It speaks for this mapset's quality, though, that you can live with those moments and still enjoy the maps.   Try it out at least.

      I really dig it! Its feel like a Ultimate Doom take of TNT, but its not at that level either.
      Its a great adventure mapset, leaning more to the  atmospheric and realistic architecture.
      First and second episodes are amazing. Introducing the new enemies as the maps unfold. But midway around episode three it start to lose steam, with a serie of really short maps and then maps really similar to the originals, this is not bad at all, just feels a little uninspireds. Fourth episode on the other hand, feels extremely rushed, with a lot of monotexturing and undetailed areas. Its not bad, but coming as the ending episode it could be much better, specially with the degree of detailing the author showed on the precious episodes.

      All the episodes offers a good challenge, even on Hurt Me Plenty, but don't expect anything near the difficulty of NEIS.   All in all, being one of the few complete Ultimate Doom megawads, its pretty good and i liked the new enemies sprites and the music used, almost all the time.

      No, this is not good by any stretch. First 25 levels feel like they are all the same - colorless, flat, dull and bland. Next 3 look like deathmatch arenas with a handful of monsters. Again, all pretty much the same. The last two are pitch black mazes - oh what fun. As for the secret levels - I abandoned both. Map31 is a maze alternating between pitch darkness and flashing primary colours and map 32 is simply an incomprehensible mess. Possibly acceptable if you just want to kill some time with mindless point and shoot, but not what I would call an enjoyable Doom experience. At least it avoids degenerating into slaughter.

      Pros: Straightforward, lot of action, no button madness. Plays smooth. Classic Doom feeling.
      Cons: Lots of invisible lines blocking monsters. Lots of hitscanners and not enough health packs.

      An enjoyable set of maps of easy difficulty (MAP 07 is medium) in UV with simple design that worked well for me. Finished the whole set in 02:40 min. Certainly worth a shot!
