Default Doom 3 GTX Mod










This mod looks amazing so far. I'm guessing the idea is to use the added power of the 7800GTX to crank the graphics up a notch. Check out the GTX Mod Website for more screenshots.

Looks nice, but it seems all it really is, is an added bloom effect. It has that "shiny" look to it now.

Erm... I can produce similar results with 3mood and BJL's Bloom Mod ( http://d3glow.clanugsm.com/ ).

Nope. I also notice self shadowing along with parallax mapping. The lighting also seem different.

Keep in mind that the mod isn't finished yet. They also plan on replacing the models and improving the textures.

That mod cut my fps in half on my 6800GT.

That ain't Doom. It's WAY too light. It may be pretty but it ain't Doom.

I found a list of whats being added to the game.

- Bloom shader
- Parallax mapping
- RealMetal Ex (it's a new version of RM, not a revision)
- Self-Shadows
- Weapons Reflex
- Distance Grow
- Simple effect like sparks

http://doom3.filefront.com/news/GTX_...reenTech;20891

The new metal shader makes it a worthy download IMO. I wish people would make mods like this for good games such as CoR. :P

I honestly never had a problem with the original game and how it looked. Imo it's still the best looking game out now, along with the expansion.

Ok, there's been roughly 10 responses here....where's that one guy who comes in and starts the "doom 3 engine cant do outdoors" thread ruiner at?

I personally don't see the big deal about HDR/bloom honestly. It just looks to me like how a hollywood movie portrays a dream. Kinda makes games less surreal IMO, but then I guess I haven't seen "real" HDR yet.
