May we have a proper thread with links to good   Wads & Mods   for   Heretic & Hexen   ? 

I'd like to request readable links in such format:

 

HERETIC = LINK

 

HEXEN = LINK

 

BOTH = LINK

 

I will start with my first set of recommendations:

 

HERETIC = BLASPHEMER

HERETIC = BLASPHEMOUS EXPERIMENTS

HERETIC = ENDQUEST

HERETIC = FAITHLESS

HERETIC = HERESY

HERETIC = HYMN

HERETIC = ICEBOUND

HERETIC = THE REALM OF PARTHORIS

HERETIC = THE WAYFARER

HERETIC = THE WAYFARER'S TOME

HERETIC = DWARS' HERETIC HQ SFX PACK

HERETIC = HERESYPAL PALETTE

HERETIC = RAVEN MIDI PACK

 

HEXEN = BATTLE FOR THE SPHERE OF CHAOS

HEXEN = SHADOWS OF CHRONOS

HEXEN = TALPARUN

HEXEN = PENUMBRA

HEXEN = HEXEN HD 2020

HEXEN = CRONOSPAL PALETTE

HEXEN = RAVEN MIDI PACK 2

HEXEN = TEMPERED ARMS

HEXEN = LOST LUXURY

 

BOTH = WALPURGIS

BOTH = BRIGHTMAPS PLUS

BOTH = GZDOOM'S LIGHTS.PK3 ADDON

BOTH = NASH'S HP BAR

BOTH = UNIVERSAL ZSCRIPT DAMAGE FLASH

BOTH = UNIVERSAL DAMAGE NUMBERS (DAMNUMS)

BOTH = RETRO FX WITH DITHER

I really need to get into Heretic and Hexen mods. I really enjoy the games, especially Hexen. I guess Doom wads have kept me occupied for so long. 

 

This is a great starting point, I need to make a Hexen map some time.

@game

You can add for Heretic:

  • Masters of Chaos
  • Sitnalta
  • Heretic Treasure Chest
  • 20 Heretics Challenge
  • Hordes of Chaos X
  • HUMP
  • I might remember others but can't remember the names...

For Hexen:

  • Serpent: Resurrection
  • Necrosis
  • Hexmas
  • Wolfen
  • Caldera
  • Tower of Chaos
  • Scourge of Viscerus

And I think that's all that I have on my mind right now...

Ones made by me for Heretic with download links. All of these only for GZ/LZ Doom

Sensible Heretic: A simplification of Heretic that removes Tome normal usage, adds alrfires to some weapons and uses a cool set of Monsters via Mellow Heretic. Comes also as a just a weapons pack without the monsters too. 

                            Download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Goq8jYMaruvqzZ26FTm9KXdzr1BM2zAo/view?usp=sharing

 

Heretic Heroes: NES Heroes and Hexes,  also comes with a Doom 2 version. This is literally my most advanced mechanics mod I ever made. Please read the READme inside of the Pk3 or posted at the description on the ModDB file download page under Read More.  Basically its a for fun mod that places many Platformer Heroes and RPG heroes inside of Doom Engine. 

 

Highly recommended to play on Software Render Mode as it corrects some of the bad clipping that happens in OpenGL mode. This mod is part of my Holy Trinity of Fantasy Doom assets, and literally the most advanced mechanically and started off as the Heretic version. The Doom version is less robust, but contains the same core of mechanics. Much better game play on Heretic.

Bitter Heretic: This one is made by Lagi  and is a literal masterpiece of a gameplay mod.  https://www.moddb.com/mods/bitter-heretic-melee-combat-emphasise/downloads/bitter-heretic

I think that it would also be a good idea to split them based on vanilla/ limit removing/ advanced engine required, and maps/ gameplay/ misc.

You could also include the Heretic Sprite Fix project.

I'll be posting Heretic and Hexen links to my main Collection/project thread. So your new suggestions should appear there soon.

It's all in one place, and sorted alphabetically.

 

You may suggest stuff here, or in that thread. Thank you.

Mods are sometimes appended as a bonus. I don't have a dedicated link section for mods.

There are exceptions where I don't add the wad to the collection. I have to check if it has something engaging to offer first.

@rzh It's a good idea, especially because I also prefer vanilla and crispy, but I wanted the list to look clear and minimalistic and decided not to include compatibility.

 

I'm making custom covers for Heretic and Hexen too.

Disgusting self-shilling but 

HEXEN = STRATOSPHERIC DOMAIN, perhaps?

Nothing wrong with self shilling especially in this case. I had to do the same but only because half the time none of us would even know this stuff exists.

 

Heres a few more that I found and enjoyed:

 

Hero Quest for Hexen-- This is an entire game rebuild of the old fantasy Table Top game called Hero Quest. So brutal. So good. https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=45245&hilit=heroes+quest

 

Hexen HD--- This is a graphics pack for Hexen. This is jawdrop gorgeous. No monster sprites, but clarity was like playing Hexen with Skyrim level graphics. https://www.moddb.com/mods/hexen-hd-2020/downloads/hexen-hd-v102

Yeah, the one part I forgot to say about the Hexen HD is you have to set your Filter to Trilinear or None(Trilinear) in order to get their full effect. Ot at least I had to do that.

That's generally a rule with high fidelity graphics. Ever since Quake 3 games have looked better with texture filtering as high as possible (in my opinion).

Thanks for the tip!

I went through all recent suggestions and 42 wads are now featured with release year and links.

There were a few wads I didn't like and two that refused to run on new GZDoom version.
