well, i got doom, played it, and completed it. pleased to say i enjoyed it, though it got me thinking. I was intreged by these ancient marsians, and their oridgional fight against the hords of hell, how they created the soul cube and fled to earth after the purge of evil. It got me thinking about what it would have been like, and thus lead me to think about how this saga would trasnlate as a game. Would it not be cool to play that story? to be the marsian on that tablet holding the soulcube, fighting the demons with ancient weapons and mystic forces, and finly defeating the demons. If it were to be made as a mod it would have to be classed as a TC, it would need new maps, weapons, player models, and voices, although they wouldn't be in english. take alot of work. tell me what you think of the idea and if your interested and give it support we can talk more about it in depth.
yours black fang
Interesting idea, Id play it
Take a very close look at the tablits. Youll see that they used the main character from doom 1 as the *ancient warrior* that killed the demons. Its the same thing as the poster from ulimate doom expect they took his gun away and put in the soul cube. So these "Martians" will be the old skool marines vs the new ones.
this can't be so, the marsians came to earth to escape the demons and that would make the about 6million years old, and i doubt that doom1 is set 6million years before the oridgional doom. They probably used that poster as a bit of nostalger for all those who remembered the old dooms
So any1 who is still interested plz post or pm me, i really thinkl this could work and be really good as a mod
I think it's a good idea for a mod, something a little StarGate-ish perhaps - the only problem I could see with this is the reference :) the tablet you're talking about, from what I could gather, refers to the hero *that will* come and seal the hell hole ; ie - *you* ^^ hence why the researcher working on the tablets goes "you have the soul-cube ? ... oh my god ... it's you, etc. etc." Also explains why the 'hero' is wearing marine combat armor when the two civilisations seem to be so different, no ?
