It´s a try to make Doom a little bit better.
I don´t say it´s the best thing on earth or better than the original DooM, It was just atry.

EDIT: Changes for V1.1:
-Fomer Humans/Sergants and imps can fall of steps
-imp fireball changed speed from 10 to 18

There will be more changes but I´m still working on it.

Maybe poor choice of words, but I didn't know there was something bad about Dooms original gameplay.

It´s tested with Skulltag, but I think it works with almost all,
because there are no port specific features.

So you're not using DECORATE? DECORATE is port-specific

Hmm, I just gave it a try -- to be honest, the supershotgun is overpowered now. Also, it looks silly to have lots of solid flat chunks of red stuff fall from enemies when you shoot them with it.

Try Nightmare difficulty if it´s to easy for you.

Sounds like a DEHACKED/WAD combo.

Having weak enemies jump off ledges (Imp in E1M1 nukage room) can unbalance gameplay in some areas, especially when some are set up to snipe at the player.

Works fine in zDooM. I'm guessing that all openGL ports will have trouble with the blood sprites lying flat. EDGE boosted the imps range attack to near instant hit speeds.

Nice attempt omegamer, but I believe Doom's gameplay is as close to perfection as can be for a game like it IMO. What's next? Revenant rockets don't chase you? Cyberdemons fire only one rocket at once?

Moreso, the numerous great WADs released over the years have been built around DOOM's gameplay balance, and changing it without careful thought can unbalance things in an inappropriate manner. :P

Most decent "weapon mods" or "monster mods" at least contain some new graphics, to motivate the player to try them out.

If you really want to change DOOM's gameplay that much with a DEHACKED patch, I recommend you make and include maps that are made for and are interesting to play with that patch.

After trying out your mod, I think it breaks the gameplay rather than making it "better". The super fast SSG alone completely ruins the fun for me, because the challenge of dodging attacks while reloading was half the fun of using that weapon. Same for your monster modifications.

Sorry, but your modifications remind me of the good old 1995 or whatever year Dehacked came out and when people made their first steps with it and everyone was astonished about the super fast weapons and other tricks that were possible with it. That's not a bad thing, but for me it seems redundant to make mods like that again nowadays.
