The wait is over...

Zakyrus brings us his mod that is guaranteed to get your heart pounding, and the saliva running! If you're after a download that will increase the scare-factor of your Doom III game, then look no further! This mod has been in production almost as long as Doom III has been out, and it shows, the eye-candy of the NightMare Mod is something that has to be seen...and more importantly, played to be appreciated!

"Hell beckons, to show you the way to nightmares..."

This mod comes with the following maps completed, (Zakyrus has stated that more will follow in later versions): Mars City Mars City Underground Mars City 2 Administration

Something to keep in mind while playing the NightMare Mod is that it is intended for high-end machines; The developer suggests higher then a 7800GTX (or the ATi equivalent), anything less, and you will have to turn down the settings...which will allow you to still play, but you won't get the full greatness of the mod.

"Zakyrus NightMare Mod combined with JC_Denton's Enhanced Doom3 will rock your feeble Doom3 World!"

Some of the features of this mod include:

  • Graphics:
    • All objects/scenery cast realtime soft-shadows
  • Gore:
    • All monster melee attacks now cause player to bleed
    • Increased size and amount of bloodsplats on surfaces
    • Enhanced blood effects, and all melee/bullet damage will create blood particles
  • Monsters:
    • Shots to monster's limbs is now reduced (aim for the chest or the head!)
    • Monsters will now hunt you down if you run away from them, instead of returning to their spawn point and standing still
    • Monsters will now wander around after the player is killed (so they don't just stand there like morons anytime you die)
  • Cinematic:
    • All cinematic with walking players have footstep sounds added, this goes for monsters as well.
  • Player:
    • Slightly increased run and walk values; increased stamina
    • No longer start with 48 bullets
  • Physics:
    • All articulated figures(ragdoll) physics now extremely realistic! Bodies fall over very realistically 98% of the time.
    • Weapon physics fixed (monsters will no longer fly 20 feet when you hit them with a pistol!)
    • Fire extinguishers now explode when damaged (watch out, they can kill you if you are too close!)
    • Popcans and coffee cups are destructible and now spray coffee/soda.
    • Explosions are now far stronger and throw everything around.
    • Electronic objects (phones, laptops, etc) are destructable and have their own particle effects.

...And a whole lot more!

Aside from the normal occurrences of monsters that you will encounter, Zakyrus has also placed some random triggers that enable an unexpected monster spawn. Now monsters could appear behind you or from anywhere for that matter! To add a bit of uncertainty to your gaming experience, there are a lot more things in this mod to freak you out, like picking up an item or armour or crossing a new and evil trigger will cause a random monster spawn.

"You guys don't have a clue what you're in for... every time I play this I'm on the edge of my seat (as it should be) and I am the author."

This download also comes with a bonus, an English Voices Pack, which has been enhanced way beyond the original! It comes with many, many sounds mixed into them, Zakyrus has stated that it is scary as hell; This bonus is recommended, though not required.

Even Hell has no nightmare as scary as this!

Refer to the readme for a whole plethora of information!

Using with other mods:

I give 0.0% guarentess that this will work other mods. This is because there are so many things intragal to this mod.
Such as supershotgun, new textures/lights, and sounds, etc, etc, etc. If you use another mod with this, be sure
to check to see that you aren't replacing any files. If there are no files are to be overridden, then the mod will work
perfectly with this one. 

Eg: Skin mods for example will work. Sound mods may conflict.





"I am convinced they are toying with me, allowing me to stay two steps ahead of them. I can see them in the shadows sometimes..." - Simon Garlick  ...May you rest in pieces(and Hell!)

Monsters:
Shots to monster's limbs is now reduced (aim for the chest or the head!)
Monsters will now hunt you down if you run away from them, instead of returning to their spawn point and standing still
Monsters will now wander after the player is killed (so they don't just stand there like morons anytime you die)
Monsters stats(life and stuff) have been reblanced to have more of a classic DooM feel while still keeping a "fiece" combat feeling.
Monsters skills like Imp_leap are even scarier and slightly harder to avoid
Monsters have been tweaked to be for classicalness:
~Zombies: more life, more damge, bite attack added(drains health and player cannot move until attack is over!),
    zombies respawn(20%,40%,60%, or 80% chance depending on skill level), only head damage hurts. They are waaaay scarier now!
~Z-Sec: Better AI, fire rates fixed, weapon damage improved, maneuverability enhanced,-- SOON these guys will have better AI than they guys in F.E.A.R.!

Imps: Moverate is faster, now "stalks" the player, Jump attacks are harder to dodge and much scarier, deadly if cornered.
    Imps have some anims enhanced(used some of crawling imp jump anims for the regular imp) and it looks like a damn velociraptor is leaping at you!

Maggots: Scary as f***, will jump from VERY far away. But have much less life.
Cherubs: Will jump much higher. (No longer say "MAMA!", annoyance replaced with a WAAAAAAAAAAAY better sound)

          Also, they throw imps and zombies at you!
ADDED BARONS OF HELL -- like HK's but way stronger and new sound effects!

PDAs:
Fixed a bug in Mark T. Caseon's PDA


Player:
Slightly increased run and walk values; inscreased stamina
No longer start with 48 bullets (Why did you start with those at the beginning before you even get a gun?)


Physics:
All articulated figures(ragdoll) physics now extremely realistic! Bodies fall over very realisitcally 98% of the time. (still glitches sometimes, but much better)
Moveable objects physics have been tweaked (before, some objects like cones would un-realistically fly all over the place)
Weapon physics fixed (monsters will no longer fly 20 feet when you hit them with a pistol!)
Fire extingueshers now explode when damaged (watch out, they can kill you if you are too close!)
Popcans and coffee cups are destructable and now spray coffee/soda (thirsty burst sodacans coming soon!)

Weapons:
Weapons stats have been reblanced to have more of a classic DooM feel (close to perfect) 5 SG shots = 1 cacodemon death
Grenade - Reduced bounciness and are now destructable (careful now, monsters can shoot at your grenades!)




SDK ENHANCEMENTS:
Dentons's 2.0 Enhancement mod

ALL materials have own surftypes!
~now even electric materials such as power boxes or cosoles have special FX
 (Shoot up a computer console and watch the fireworks!)

Enhanced Particle System:
I used JC_Dentons Particles in addition to some new custom systems I have made.
Now there's electric_fry (when you shoot electronic textures!)

** Particle systems are somethings I really like, so I will be adding my "Ultra-Insane Particle Mod" (not finished yet, but is really awesome so far) I will hopefully also be able to add "soft particles" in a later version (so you don't see those damn edges!)




MAP ENHANCEMENTS LIST:
In this version ONLY maps Mars_City through Admin are "complete"... the rest will come in a later version!

HDR and Fake Radiosity:
Increased the scale of lighting/added fake radiosity to all lights in maps
(tedious I know!) Fake radiosity is where extra lights are added to compliment
the ones already there... just look at the darn screenshots to see what I mean!
~This makes everything more lit up, filling up the extra blackness with
light... one good thing thou...
with everything more visually appealing and lit, everything is actually 
scarier! Why? Since the lights themselves are scaled,
the monsters now have MUCH better looking highlights/shading that are
better than ever before!
 Also, if you like darkness, you can just turn down the brightness/gamma a
lower setting. ...Even in the dark, the scaled lights still make everything
scarier, a two for one deal that can't be topped! (Mod of the Year, please? ha ha. Just kidding..)

Suggested settings:
r_gamma & r_brightness should ALWAYS be less than 1.3 for optimal results
r_lightscale 1 (Should NEVER be above 1.3 with this mod or the lights will look like crap,
I highly recommend leaving this at 1.0)




Monster Encounters
Besides the monsters that are normally in the maps, I have added new triggers
that enable a random monster trigger. Monsters could appear behind you or
from anywhere for that matter!
Also alot more things like picking up an item or armour or crossing a new and evil random
tigger will cause a random monster spawn.

When these spawns occur, a monster is instanly spawned usually into a nearby room (so you don't 
know it's coming!), I rarely used monsters that instanly teleport into the room you
are in (I wanted this to be unique from other random monther systems). Sometimes what
may occur is there are two triggers. One for making an imp drop down from a vent infront of
you. The second makes that same imp instead jump from around the corner behind you.
When you are playing the map, the trigger instantly chooses which imp scenario to create.
Also, for you weenies out there, quicksaving doesn't help as these events are generated
instantaneously! You know you will be attacked by an imp for sure, you just don't know
which of the random ways it will happen! Aha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

By the way, only Veteran is heavily tested. Don't be surprised if you average a level with less than
30 health. (and yes all health packs are still there). I played and tested these levels dozens of times, and
I still get owned almost every time! Ha ha ha ha ha! 


----- END MAP ENHANCEMENT LIST-----



BONUS:

English_VO pak:
Optional is the English VO pack, titled "pak666.pk4"
This pack is not required and is seperate for convenience to those who wish to not
use it. However, the English voice files have MANY, MANY enhanced sounds mixed into them
so it's recommened(though not required) that you play with it.

The Combat_Chatter sounds for MC_Underground and Mars_City2 are out of this world! There
are shattering glass, various gunfire, explosions, marine death, and monster death sounds
mixed in as well as people shouting orders and massive chaos! Much better than my previous
generation ones!






Enjoy the restoration of the nightmarish experience of this DEMO of "Zakyrus Nightmare Mod"!
Though this version is NOTHING compared to the final! Next update (version 0.666) will have the rest
of the maps finished with faked radiosity & random monsters. Updates after that will be all other enhancements
such as destructable environent, etc, etc and everything else on this list.


...until next time...
~Zakyrus (aka J. Jensen)



P.S. Feature suggestions will probably be ignored, unless it's something really cool or practical.

--------------------------------------------------------------

COMING SOON!


AI:
Super intelligent AI & option to have "auto-adjusting difficulty" (increments of g_skill such as 1.2, 1.3, etc)
Enemies will also learn off the players style and will attack in groups if multiple monsters of the same type are together

Articulated Figures:
Soon, I will have AFs that will actually fall over correctly (like they would in real life) mass, volume, and density will be taken into account for each invidual limb. (Let's see if I can make better AF physics than that F.E.A.R. game)

Blood n Gore:
+ My Ultra-Real Blood n Gore system
Blood that sprays on walls/models drips downward

Blood that oozes on floors dries after a few minutes(also can be smeared when wet), can make bloody footprints(that also dry and can be smeared)

Corpses of everything except bigger-sized demons stay (with a simple g_gib command)
Violence option implemented (add seta g_violencelevel "1" in your autoexec.cfg file)
  {Having this turned on will make monsters ooze a puddle of blood and twitch when they die.}
  {blood oozes after 3-6 secs, twitch occurs for 4-8 secs with random tapering intensity)


SDK:
All my SDK enhancemnts added --too much to list here, basics are:
burn_lights, debris_lights, infinite debris time, etc, etc, etc.


MAP STUFF:
All maps finished! (and current ones even more enhanced!)

+More monster triggers (EVERY monster event should have 5 or 6 random possibilites instead of 2 to 4)

Destructables:
Soda machines, Circuit breaker boxes, monitors, more fire extiqueshers, more
airtanks/barrels, more breabkable objects such as pillbottles, binders, and
much, much more! Most places that have explosives have cardboard boxes that explode
aswell.* (*ability to explode with flaming shreds because of explosion coming soon!)

Also! More hazards such as exploding pipes that shoot fire or emit steam!

+Destructable environment (EVERYTHING DESTRUCTABLE)
+ Example: Be able to go into a bathroom and litteraly lay waste to the place. Tiled walls should fragment into peices, with pipes behind them, pipes should be destrutable and spray water. Every type of bathroom decoration (toilets, sinks, etc) will have destructable FX & debris. (this is just bathrooms alone)

+Enhanced AI paths so monsters can climb over/drop off anything!
(If you jump down a balcony or over a railing, you better believe that imp will follow you down no matter what!)
(If a trite/imp/etc is on a first floor, it will climb up the walls to get you)


....


ALSO:

Virtual Reality Hardware: (I hope to add this soon for all you fellow "deckers" out there!)
Z800 Virtual Headset headtracking support
Stereo3D support (must tweak fragent prgrams like heathaze.vfp so they work in stereo3d)
seperate aim and gun tracking for those with multiple inputs/or VR hardware
(So where you are looking and where you shoot are two seperate inputs, this is totally kickass!)

32 surface types (ex: heavy_metal, light_metal1, light_metal2, electric1, electric2, lava, cloth, paper, cardboard, tile, etc, etc) ...each with unique particles and sound effects!!


Smooth models (then ultra-shdadows for models will look good!)
Every model breakable (dismemberment for human/zombies)
My "Ultra Quality Textures Mod" (also unfinished but getting there!)

liquid physics (containter/liquid ratio, container wound_size, liquid_viscosity and more!)
breakable phyiscs
super debris physics (debris lights, burn_lights, debris_stay (need LOTS of ram for all those "tile parts"!)
(maybe also integrate Agea "Physics card" hardware support?)


Renderer stuff: (have to wait for renderer SDK for this stuff ...f**k! :( )
volumetric fog, fire, and smoke >:)
subsurface scattering 
raytracing? (maybe when 32/64GB video cards are out the engine could handle it)
