most of the monsters are just to stupid and too easy, or too hard. the imps need to do their little side strafe thingy a LOT more. that would make it a lot more actiony. the teleporting guy thingies should be able to teleport behind you so you have to be freakin scared when theyre teleporting around everywhere. i played the game through on veteran first time, so i dunno how the monsters are balanced on the other difficulties, but on veteran, the shotugn zombies and machine gun zombies are to strong. they take too many hits and deal too much damage, they should be a lot weaker, but a lot more numerous.

yeah if i could mod id do it. anyways, i call it AIDS... artificial intelligence deficiency syndrome. ya know.. bad ai.... deficiency... ahhh.

oh and a mod that replaces all the monsters with the original sprite monsters. and they could be 2d and automatically face you and the dead bodies would also automatically face you

they all just rush at you. or occasionally hide behind something. i was thinkin how scary itd be if an imp jumps out and you take a shot and run around a corner... then wait. the imp doesnt come rushing blindly around the corner (like they stupidly do). so you peek around and see that he isnt there. already tension is WAY up cuz you dunno where he is. he could be hangin off the roof, waiting to drop down behind you, or could be hiding in a shadow. tahts good ai. thats the kinda awesome stuff that woulda pushed a great game to awesomeness. oh and the imps really should dodge more. i mean they just walk towards you under heavy fire on veteran. i mean thats supposed to be the hardest, but it was still easy. as for teh zombies gunners being too strong, its not that theyre hard, just really really annoying because they shouldnt be as powerful as they are. the most fun i had was one place in the cave level when you get ambushed by like 7 cacodemons. it was awesome cuz it was hard, and it was a close battle, but the cacodemons werent too strong or too weak. it was a frenzy of plasma and lighting. anwyays, just a request of mine... soo.. howre the kids?

oh im sure this is in the works somewhere, but the doom3 engine and the already present textures just BEGS for an aliens or aliens vs predator mod.

They could have an instinct like that, but consider when they get their hands on you. They do a bit of damage there.

I do miss the hordes though. Those were fun.

some "creatures" should have a lil more intelligence.. ie: imps (imp meaning trickery) ... I'm sure once the SDK gets released someone will make an AI upgrade mod.

yeah i was especially thinkin of the imps. someone should just like lower the strength of the commandos and like triple their number at eash spawn point and voila! instant horde. im sure the fps would suffer on some machines though.

if u open base/script/ai_monster_demon_imp.script and goto line 343 and change the values in line if ( sys.random( 50 ) < 50 ) { above nums are mine. the smaller the first number and higher the second, usually makes the imp dodge more often
