This is the first test release a joint project between Shadow Dancer, Thirst for Pain, Ice Weasel and Jonny the Fox, aimed at making [i]Doom3[/i] a more frightening and intense experience. The
creatures you face will be more vicious, resilliant, and fearsome than before, and some possess new abilities to catch you off-guard and keep you on your toes. Doom3 Remix is designed around experienced and veteran players. New players should start on Recruit difficulty and give the Beginner's Monster Guide a read-through as some of the monsters are now very tough challenges. Enemies have little or no slowdown to their reaction time, meaning they'll dodge when shot at, and attack relentlessly and without warning when they have a chance. All returning monsters do damage on par with their classic Doom counterparts (ie: Imps do 24 damage with their slashes instead of their previous 8) and all new monsters have had their damage upped to similar levels. [b]Some weapon changes include:[/b] [u]Shotgun:[/u] The shotgun reloads one shell at a time now, and must be cocked before leaving the reload state Choose your reload time carefully. [u]Rockets and Grenades:[/u] To compensate for the effects of full locational damage, rockets and grenades now do around 260 damage for direct and splash damage, the ctach is they also do this full damage to you if they blow-up anywhere nearby. Use them with caution. [u]Plasma gun: [/u]The fire-rate has been increased somewhat, but there's a catch: the plasma projectiles now have a small radius damage. Damage zones have been implemented for all NPCs, enemies, and even you, so do your best to avoid taking headshots, but do your best t dish them out. Limb shots will do less than full damage, and some enemies have locations (like the Pinky's hindquarters) which take no damage at all, so you'll have to be precisce about your aim if you want to drop your targets quickly. The developer also suggests the following mod to increase the 'Doom III funness!'
