Aliens Doom TC: Special Edition

Recommended Posts

This is an unnoficial rework and total cleanup of the legendary Aliens TC that came when Doom modding was in it's infancy. Credited as the first ever TC, it was a blast to play and very scary. This update and conversion into Zdoom brings the mod into the 21st century. There are new weapons, monsters, and every level has been scoured and cleaned up.

Please note, I am not in anyway detracting from the original mod, this is a fan edit and I in no way take credit for the original levels or graphics.

There is a lot of new things in the mod, including 4 brand new enemies, factions, 2 new weapons, Alien Trilogy weapons sprites, reloading, fog effects, race specific blood, ambient sounds and interactive scenery. The maps have had a slight reworking and a clean up, as well as a rejig.

heres some shots:

As I said, this is a fan edit, I hope I've done the TC justice because I have put a lot of effort into this!

EDIT: sendspace link now instead

EDIT: Also uploaded a music wad, using the Aliens soundtack

One of the wads much impress me at first time playing doom mods on the "freeware cd" era, together with Innocent crew's "Obituary", and the font of inspiration of my mapping, ported for zdoom. This is awesome!

I'll give a look further...

The fog and clouds could use some tweaking, yes, and it still doesn't look very much like the rain-and-wind-blasted surface of LV426 at all (a problem with the original TC, as well). But the other shots look pretty cool.

How did you fucking managed to rip sprites from Aliens Trilogy? Oh boy, I see my whole infant at those shots. Gotta download it when I get time.

Somebody should make such clean-up for Aliens vs. Predator vs. Terminator too.

Regards the LV-426 sky, this might be of use. I didn't make it and I have no idea who did, but it's been on my hard drive forever.

EDIT: Actually, Imageshack is shite, here's a zip of the full size version.

Granted, IIRC it was originally meant for jDoom. GZDoom wouldn't have too many issues with it, but it would need to be tweaked for software (greyscale, probably). Actually, greyscale would probably fit the fog better.

Hud weapons look hideous. Please revert to originals.

All those blues probably won't be kind to DOOM's palette, but it sure is neat-looking.

Just make it gray.

How the hell did you rip from Aliens Trilogy? I've never found a way... Oh well, If I ever want 'em I'll ake them from here. :)

Anyways, looks good.

Are Jumping and/or Crouching used in this mod? What about Falling Damage?

And that extra sky pic is excellent! Very, very nice! :) But I dunno how to put it in the .WAD to replace the current sky with it.... :/

I'm gonna give it a go right now hehehe

Append: Nice! Very cool! Looks great, but the sound effects are even better--they give me the creeps when moving with much trepidation through the xenomorph-infested areas.

I took some pictures while I was there:

(Yes, I made a .ZIP, and they're in the .ZIP hehehe) There's eight pictures there. Maybe more people should snap some better ones hehehe

I think the new weapon sprites look pretty ass, wherever they're from. I also got killed by the very first alien I found, as it trapped me in a corner; they're way faster than they used to be, and the pistol was useless. :P

Anyway, it's kind of cool to see the TC getting some more attention.

The weapon models, at least in the screenshots, are from Alien Trilogy, an Alien-themed FPS released in the mid-90's. Fairly solid DOOM clone.

Unfortunaly, those aren't the complete set of sprites for those enemies as he says in the thread. This was all he was able to extract.

Dang I wish he had more. And man, outside the game, that Alien looks just awful. The facehugger though is quite cool. I wish there could be more.

How he extracted any sprites from that game though is utter mystery... To me anyways.


By using TiledGGD, according to the man himself in the thread. Though he was only able to extract a handful of the resources while the rest came out garbled.

Judging just from the screenshots, I have to echo these posts:

The depth fog and the opaque, solid gray clouds floating in front of the mountains in shot 2 look horrible.

Thanks for the comments guys!

The weapon pickups I know where a bit of a risk, I took them from a website which obviously got them from a tv screengrab, I may go back to the originals...

as for the HUD weapons....I found them in a zip zomewhere, they are from the Playstation version (i think), Im not sure if all frames are intact, but I think they are a hell of a lot better than the TC version sprites.

Yes there is falling damage, jumping has been disabled but crouching hasnt.

The sentry guns are supposed to attack you, they are a risky weapon to use. They target ANYTHING in their path (just like the movies)
