File Description

This updated version of Commander Doom is for those of you that currently have Commander Doom v1.1 and wish to update to the newest version released. If you no longer have Commander Doom v1.1, or if this is your first time experiencing this Single player mod, then you should be downloading the Commander Doom v1.2 Full install.

*****

An all-out war broke out in hell, and you, COMMANDER DOOM are right in the middle of it! Will you and your demonic hellspawn send the diabolic bastards into oblivion?

That statement could be enough to make anybody want to download and play this map! ...But, for those of you that want a little more:

Commander Doom starts at your base, from which you can summon demons to fight in your cause. In order to spawn allied demons, you need to capture control points, which are distributed across the map. You can use a little radar on the HUD to orient yourself among the control points, bases, enemies and allies. Capturing control points earns you increased flux of credits, which can be used to buy upgrades. Control points can only be captured, if no emeny units are nearby.

The goal of each game is to successfully destroy the enemy base(s). To destroy the enemy base, you will need to locate the generators, and destroy them (make sure to hit the generators at their weak spot). ...Sounds pretty easy, eh? (If you just answered 'yes', boy, are you going to be surprised!)

You can choose from four different maps with four different difficulty settings. Map 1 Opposing Bases is much easier to beat from a strategic point of view. Map 2 Center Heat is tough to beat even on normal difficulty and requires more optimized strategic thinking. Map 3 Control Room confines you into a room overlooking the battle - you cannot directly engage in the fight, and you are completely dependent on your tactical skills. It's a pretty tough map to beat... Map 4 The Maze is set out in an underground bunker system and requires your tactical skill as well as quick reactions on the field. The goal of MAP1 and MAP4 is to destroy all enemy bases. To destroy the enemy base, you will need to locate the generators, and destroy them (make sure to hit the generators at their weak spot). The generators are usually guarded by machinegun turrets. The enemy turrets can be destroyed, but they respawn after a given delay.

The goal of MAP2 and MAP3 is to control all 6 control points for at least 60 seconds. In these maps, the base generators can still be destroyed, but they are much less vulnerable and better protected.

Some new features in this version are: A new map called "The Maze" A new allied unit: the jetpack-equipped, rocket-blasting fatty Support for Doom3 version 1.3.1

                           Synopsis:
**************************************************************

An all-out war broke out in hell, and you, COMMANDER DOOM are 
right in the middle of it! Will you and your demonic hellspawn 
send the diabolic bastards into oblivion?

**************************************************************
                     Gameplay instructions:
**************************************************************

You can choose from four different maps with four different
difficulty settings. MAP1: Opposing Bases is much easier to 
beat from a strategic point of view. MAP2: Center Heat is
tough to beat even on normal difficulty and requires more
optimized strategic thinking. MAP3: Control Room confines you
into a Room overlooking the battle - you cannot directly 
engage in the fight, and you are completely dependent on your
tactical skills. It's a prtty tough map to beat... MAP4: The
Maze is set out in an underground bunker system and requires
your tactical skill as well as quick reactions on the field.

A game of Commander Doom starts at your base, from which you 
can summon demons to fight in your cause. In order to spawn
allied demons, you need to capture control points, which are
distributed across the map. You can use a little radar on the
HUD to orient yourself among the control points, bases,
enemies and allies.

Capturing control points earns you increased flux of credits,
which can be used to buy upgrades. Control points can only be
captured, if no emeny units are nearby. Press TAB to reach the
tech tree, which offers various units and weapons, as well as
base extensions and allied units. To buy a base extension, 
click on the corresponding double arrow in the tech tree. The 
upgrade will reveal additional units in the tech tree 
interface. To buy units/weapons click on the corresponding 
button.

By pressing the 't' button, you can enter the tactical screen,
which allows you to command your troops to selected targets.
Three basic functions are accessible through the radar screen:

1) attack monster: click on your fighter and then on the 
   monster you want to attack.

2) capture control point: click on your fighter and then on 
   the control point - the fighter capture the point and will 
   move on afterwards and seek new objectives on it's own.

3) guard control point: click on the fighter and then on a 
   control point you already own - the fighter will stay at 
   that point and will only attack, if attacked itself, or 
   if an enemy gets too close to the control point. 

On the right side of the radar, you can find additional 
information about the selected unit and you can also change
the general behavior of that unit to focus more on attacking
enemies, capturing control or having a more balanced behavior.

The goal of MAP1 and MAP4 is to destroy all enemy bases. To 
destroy the enemy base, you will need to locate the generators, 
and destroy them (make sure to hit the generators at their 
weak spot). The generators are usually guarded by machinegun 
turrets. The enemy turrets can be destroyed, but they respawn 
after a given delay.

The goal of MAP2 and MAP3 is to control all 6 control points
for at least 60 seconds. In these maps, the base generators
can still be destroyed, but they are much less vulnerable and
better protected.

Building units needs to be planned carefully. Only one unit
(turret, ally, base extension, etc.) can be built at a time.
Successful assault of the enemy base requires a well balanced 
and well timed combination of units and powerups.

If you get killed, or if all control points are held by your 
opponent for 60sec, you loose the game. If your opponent
destroys your main base, you cannot spawn any additional
allies or upgrades. If you hold all control points for 60sec 
you recieve a megahealth powerup.

Control summary:

'Q'  : buy medkit
'E'  : buy ammo for current weapon (price varies with weapon 
       type

'TAB': enter tech tree/upgrades interface
'T'  : enter tactical interface
'Y'  : toggle between tech tree and tactical interfaces

**************************************************************
                     Instructions for Mappers:
**************************************************************

-the worldspawn entity must contain the entry 'datafile', 
 which points to a set of definition files containing map 
 specific properties, such as enemy units and spawning
 frequency or unit costs. Four different definition files
 with an appended number corresponding to the difficulty
 (0,1,2 or 3) must be present for each map.

-the map must contain the following standard entities

the homebase:

 "classname" "func_homebase"
 "name" "home_base_attractor"

the positions of homebase extensions:

 "classname" "func_static"
 "name" "player_extspawn1"

the position of ally spawning:

 "classname" "func_static"
 "name" "player_spawn"

the position of ally turret spawning:

 "classname" "func_static"
 "name" "player_towerspawn1"

the enemy bases:

 "classname" "func_enemybase"
 "name" "enemy_base_1_attractor"

the position of enemy spawning:

 "classname" "func_static"
 "name" "enemy_spawn1"

the position of enemy turret spawning:

 "classname" "func_static"
 "name" "monster_towerspawn1"

the position of control points:

 "classname" "func_static"
 "name" "control1"

 ... more sequentially named entities can be placed - the
 total number must confirm with the number setup in the 
 datafile definition.

Notes:

a) For proper AI movements, any models should be filled with 
world geometry as close to the model surface as possible, 
otherwise monsters will try to shoot through them.

b) vis_portals in func_doors blocked the AI movement towards 
beacons (not towards enemies though) making the AI very 
inefficient. Vis_portals next to door were fine though and 
still able to block off the hidden geometry.

c) I tried some alternative ways to spawn enemies on 
func_movers to avoid having them appear out of nowhere, but 
anything else than spawning enemies on worldspawn kept them 
from efficient pathfinding.

d) in the current version, the performance bottleneck is the 
number of certain monsters and fighters. Soldiers are the most 
performance hungry entities, followed by imps, which are a bit 
lighter. Maggots and Morgue zombies are pretty light and can 
be spawned in larger numbers. Keep this in mind if you edit 
the monster spawning probabilities.


Please contact me, if you wish assistance for making a map for
this mod.
