Which Doom/heretic/Hexen mod would you like to see revived?

Recommended Posts

This topic is not a copy idea of "Which sourceports would you like to see revived" but a original idea :)

 

This could include gameplay mods or TCs, but not level wads.

By reviving, i mean mods which are incomplete and no longer being developed OR which have not been updated for a long time.

Also give reason why u chose a particular mod(or mods if there is more than one in ur mind).

My response:

1) Stronghold On the edge of chaos: This is a tower defense mod for Doom that tasks you with defending UAC bases across the galaxy against a fresh hellspawn invasion. It consists of a hub like level from where u can access any level u want to play and buy various inventory items and equipment to help u in those levels. This mod is very unique but unfortunately it was not well balanced for singleplayer(it was made for coop in mind). I would love to see this revived and getting balanced for sp.

 

2) Wrath of Cronos: A mod made primarily for Hexen but it can run for doom and heretic too. This mod adds RPG elements like leveling system, stats, unique abilities and skills. This also adds 2 new classes with unique weapons in addition to the 3 already existing hexen classes. Each class has 6 weapons with secondary firing modes. This mod was last updated in 2015 to version 1.8A before the author went MIA from zdoom forums. The mod only works on GZdoom 2.2 or older.

Killian Reed.  It was a sort of sci-fi total conversion for ZDoom that looked like it was going to have a lot of cool and interesting ideas in it, and all built from the ground up on par with something like REKKR.  Was one of the few ZDoom mods that made it to my mental list of "stuff I'm looking forward to".  But then the author just kind of up and disappeared (to the best of my knowledge anyway) along with the mod and that was years ago now.

Fortune's Run for largely the same reasons.

TC? Foreverhood.

With the GZDoom current features, that total conversion would be amazing to see it finished since it has an interesting story that catch you and wanting to see more of it.

 

Mods? I don't know...yet.

Vaporware. I loved the demo.

 

A shame that it was abandoned. It really showed the potential of Eternity engine

Project MSX. It has a few annoying glitches. 

 

It could also benefit from an update that improves the weapon sprites

It's now working on latest GZDooM.

Just get the community-fixed 2d2 version, but it's still not perfect, at least working fine with some minor glitches.

 

Also a Diablo-themed mod using WoC(was using WoC v2c2 as core but now using the WoC v2d2).

(No, this mod still alive, just mention it)

The mod is still ALIVE?

Also is the wrathofcronosr2d2.pk3 the only file i need since i remember(in v1.8A) requiring extra files other than the main file. There were like 4 or 5 pk3 files which were required for playing on other than hexen (aka Doom, Heretic, Strife).

It's alive, by community, Thetis never come back ZDooM forum and his thread...and only the uploader data on allfearthesentinel.net for WoC 2.0 series from last year is the only sign about him.

And yes, if you want play WoC in Hexen IWAD, for other IWADs.

 

https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?p=1057329#p1057329

 

All patches, in case you can't found them on allfearthesentinel.net on my previous post, also that post has original community-fixed 2d2 WAD download link before someone uploaded it to allfearthesentinel.net. These patches will works with 2d2, just working for sure.

 

For Strife patch: https://allfearthesentinel.net/zandronum/download.php?file=wrathofcronosstrifepatch1_8a.pk3

But no one report about if it working on 2d2 so try it yourself I guess.

 

Load them like you did in past(WoC 1.8a/2a/2b/2c/2c2 or whatever older than community-fixed 2d2 version).

https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?p=1057967#p1057967

If GZDooM error out, check load order, then if still nothing change, make sure don't have something automatically loaded with GZDooM.

(Just make sure your GZDooM's autoload have nothing or not exist)

 

For other patches like extra monsters(for DooM IWADs) or something else not above, just remember, some patches maybe IWAD-specific, will/or not working if you loaded with other IWAD's patch(es), some patches for 1.8a may not working on 2d2, so do not expect these old patches would all working...

Though this reminded me of something. Can anyone tell what happened to Zdoom wars?

I guess he just lost the interest about the project anymore or just too busy with other things then even lost interest of DooM and doing other things, he still actives in ZDooM forum but rarely made posts, but he did wrote a novel book last year.
