If you were sitting around on the weekend thinking "...I wonder when Dafama is going to get around to releasing something again" then are you in for a treat! Dafama2K7 has graced our doorstep and brought, for your Doom III gaming experience, a mod which will spruce up your most important piece of equipment for this (typically) dark game...thats right, your flashlight!
The reason for his creating the NewFlashlight mod is due to the fact that he wanted something more then what is offered in the stock version, although, this handy piece of gear is useful in it's original state with the visual effects of the shadows, and the fact that it adds to the scary-ness of the game; The change that Dafama2K7 has in mind for the flashlight is changing it with a better one! The biggest change will be with the light and shadows it casts and the way it moves is much more realistic, specifically, the shadows move when you are running or walking, like in the real world.
The features of this mod include:
- First public release.
- This mod is based on the fantastic and already modified by Dafama, ai_player.script from Ambient mod that is based on the global flashlight used on the latest Trey CCSM mod that is based on the fixed and tweaked by me great YAFM-HL mod originally made by CHaSE!
- This mod also uses parts of the very good URTL mod made originally by Wrake's.
- This mod also uses some very good sounds from the latest Trey CCSM mod made originally by Ice Trey.
Refer to the readme for more information.
NewFlashlight D3 v1.0 by Dafama (10-06-2008). -firstname.lastname@example.org- Description...: What features do we want for a Flashlight mod ??? I know what i want from a flashlight mod, i want many things, and in part the standard flashlight that comes with Doom 3 is one of the best flashlights made for a game, but maybe a little lower the light and with a too much small radius. But it has good thinks, for example it casts shadows, very good and it makes the scare factor higher, although it can be done better, in fact i have seen one game that does it much, much better, the game...: The Chronicles of Riddick Escape from Butcher Bay. In this game the flashlights are attached on some weapons, but the principle is the same, so what made this flashlights better ? The answer is; because the way the flashlight, they're light and shadows it casts and the way it is moved is much more realistic, specially the shadows move when you are running or walking, like in the real life !!! In Doom 3, for an unknown reason, the first person has this moving casted shadows feature disabled in first person view, but hey, if you enable the third person view you will see the same kind of realistic moving shadows appears like in the Riddick game ! So, why it is static this kind of stuff that makes the game much more scary on a game that one of the main features is that wants to scare the player ??? Well, so it comes my mod, that all it does is just this, to bring realistic moving real time shadows for the flashlight on Doom 3, finally !!! Version history...: v1.0 - First public release. - This mod is based on the fantastic and already modified by me ai_player.script from Ambient mod that is based on fixed and tweaked by me global flashlight used on the latest Trey CCSM mod that is based on the fixed and tweaked by me great YAFM-HL mod originally made by CHaSE ! - This mod also uses parts of the very good URTL mod made originally by Wrake's. - This mod also uses some very good sounds from the latest Trey CCSM mod made originally by Ice Trey.
