1. What is this project?
This is a small project that attempts to bring the weapons of the upcoming DOOM game into the original DOOM games. Doing this requires each new weapon to be redesigned and produced so that their aesthetic style is reminiscent of the original DOOM game.

2. Why make this mod?
I originally released a set of weapon sprites on the zdoom forum several years back with a sprite sheet that I allowed people to use for their own mod development. I did indeed put some effort into making these sprites, but most of them simply expanded on existing sprites that other people made. I wanted to go out and develop my own original sprite set that I sit down and draw myself - and this eventually let to the development of this mod because I also needed some fresh inspiration for weapon designs (and what better inspiration than a new DOOM game).

3. How did you create these sprites?
Using some of the footage that I have seen from footage of the new DOOM game, I simply grabbed various frames, scaled them down and painted over them. Easier said than done. My real secret is Photoshop.

4. So... are you actually making a weapon mod?
Half of the work, at least. This project is about producing weapon sprites only. I am not a coding master and I simply wanted to share my work with talented coders who can take my sprites and turn them into awesome weapon mods.

I will upload examples of some of the weapons in various stages of development. Some are finished and others are not. When I am finished all of the weapons, I will upload a .pk3 with PNG versions of each sprite so all you modders can go crazy.

CREDITS: Since I put in alot of effort and hours to produce these sprites I am sincerely humbled to take credit for this mod :) These are original weapon sprites that I have made myself so If you want to use these sprites for you own mod, you are absolutely welcome to, as long as you credit me :wink: Oh yeah... obviously credit goes to ID software for their amazing weapon designs.

Weapon sprites currently in this mod:
Chainsaw
Pistol
Shotgun
Super shotgun
Machine Gun
Chain Gun
Rocket Launcher
Plasma Rifle
BFG 9000
Gauss Cannon

Multiplayer weapons:
Repeater
Vortex Rifle

Nice work! Shotgun's pumping animation looks a little 'weak' to me, though that's just a personal nitpick. Really good stuff you've got here :D

Oh dang that BFG is sexy :o The Plasma Rifle also really stands out to me, great job.

Out of curiosity, how well do these sprites convert over to the Doom palette? I'd do it myself but I don't have access to SLADE or anything like that at the moment.

It could be helped by making it less "linear" and tweaking some of the timings, something like this:

Of course, that's best left up to the modder implementing it ;)

These are fantastic! I was hoping and waiting for somebody to do something like this, right on! The plasma rifle in particular looks absolutely RAD. Great work!
