Here's what DaFama2K7 had to say about his Parallax Mod:
Basically, the Parallax Mapping Mod is designed to give the game an authentic and lifelike adventure; This mod will draw you in even more then the original stock game does, and will heighten your perception of the cyber-surroundings around you. For the more technical minded, this mod is a new technology that simulates physical displacements on surfaces. As a result surfaces looks more three dimensional, it increases metal gloss, and the game looks more realistic. ...In short, it's sweet, and a must have!
Parallax Mapping Mod v2.0 enhances Doom3's graphics engine by applying parallax mapping to all textures. Parallax mapping, also known as virtual displacement mapping, is a recent graphical technology that gives surfaces more depth and realism. Using a heavily modified vertex and pixel shader and a mix of custom and simulated height maps, this mod makes surfaces look more three-dimensional by offsetting bumps depending on your view.
