Less Known Doom mods/maps

Recommended Posts

Yeah we all know Eviternity and Smooth Doom, but Doom is known as one of the most modded games of all time and im pretty sure there are mods and wads that despite being good, gained very little attention to our community. So do you guys know such mods/wads? Mine would be Mutiny (and no, not the megawad)

I'm fond of The Stranger, it seems to have been an anime-inspired weapons mod that is well made but has since been forgotten because of many more modern ones. For maps there's honestly way too many to name you're best bet is to explore idgames and find those with several great reviews or something.

Weapons of Saturns doesn't really get enough love. Same goes for "Shooting Monsters with Guns", which is your standard weapons mod, but you can dual wield certain weapons. There was a version of that mod that used the default Doom guns which was really cool, but it was kind of buggy.

I've been playing around with Nun with a gun.

Fun little gameplay mod, never before has Doom been a more Christian game!

For mods I have found this to be useful for some years and still holds up to Beautiful Doom and Smooth Doom. The Particle Fire Enhancer Mod

https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=28547

 

I usually mix that with a weapons mod of a weapons mod by  Hexereticdoom. I only know the name as WOS_HXTC-U5.PK3. Which is a very early version of this: https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=48074

 

For wads that are rare but I rather enjoy I would say:

Notebook.wad http://doomedsda.us/wad2087.html Episode 3 replacement

and

this:

 

both by RF

 

Lastly I would recommend

Mayan Mishap by Tango https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/s-u/t-maya

Nice to see Notebook mentioned. That wad practically just fell beneath the surface of the Earth.

 

To add just a few more recent ones not already mentioned...

Sinergy by @Crunchynut44

Ozonia by @Deadwing

Mass Extinction and 60 Secrets by @nicolas monti

 

If you've been through the Cacowards, runners up, and missed Cacowards, then @Not Jabba's Review Corner is a pretty good though not fully exhaustive starting point for 2015-2018 (and expanding).

I'll add some selections to your list @piesunisko. These are listed in alphabetical order. They are not in any other order, such as overall quality, difficulty, the order in which they came to mind, or in what order I think you should play them. The mapsets range in size from 6 to 17 maps.

 

Mapsets:

Brotherhood of Ruin

Curse of Blood

Dark Covenant

The Enigma Episode v. 2.0 (Jim Flynn compiled his 9 Doom 1 maps and revised them as a 9-map set for Doom 2)

Flashback to Hell (if you don't like the new sound effects that are included, there is a version without them)

A Taste for Blood

 

Single maps:

Abyssion (be aware that this map was made by Death-Destiny, so it's not for the faint of heart)

Brood of Hatred

Outpost 21 (there is also a Doom 1 version, if you want to try that one)
