Doom mods that aren't Doom

Recommended Posts

Wasn't sure how to search for this, so I'm asking it instead -- what are some good Doom (or Heretic/Hexen/Strife... or hell, Wolfenstein/Quake 1/2 if you have any recs!) mods that break away from the original theme into something else? I guess we used to call these total or partial conversions. Hacx or Aliens TC would be good examples. It doesn't have to be a complete change -- Impie's "Dr. Chaos" series for Heretic work too for my purposes. Remakes of other games into the Doom engine are also fine.


I feel like I know most of the big ones but I'm sure there's some obscure ones people can recommend. I'm especially looking for anything that's conceivably "real world" (i.e. not fantasy) and with a horror theme.

Here's the first map of an Aliens TC I've been working on.



The pk3 can also be used with any iwad and most pwads turning them into alien experiences.

Still no mention of Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl? Classic ZDoom TC, turns it into a cel-shaded beat-em-up with Sin City inspired cutscenes and branching storylines.




Though I should give a content warning:


There's a scene that involves homophobic violence, if you're sensitive to that.


Also gonna second REKKR as well as the Wool Ball games.

This one isn't a full blown TC or something but I suppose worth the mention:

A Quake1 style DM wad (single level) I made a while back called: The Bad Place

I strongly suggest running it along with the QStuff Ultra weapons mod. ~ The mod actually inspired me to make the map.



I believe it ended up in the Quake Champions Doom mod also.

No one's mentioned Total Chaos yet? I have a feeling OP would enjoy that a ton, since it's both "real-world" and "horror."


Funnily enough, I'm actually working on a Doom mod that isn't Doom. Or even an FPS for that matter. It's a flight action game. Really.
