What is this?
"QC: Doom Edition" is a mod that brings the weapons from the latest Quake game into Doom, with delicious pixelated flavor.
More than just weapons and monsters, it also brings the champions -- different player classes, each one with unique status, speed, active and passive abilities, voice acting, and even lore.
➢ 31 champions to play, each with unique abilities
➢ All weapons from Quake Champions, with faithful firing times for best transferable experience
➢ Weapon upgrades that give each weapon a whole new role
➢ Play Single Player, Cooperative, Survival
➢ Monster sets to mix and match: Doom, Doom 4, Quake, Quake 2, Quake 4. Add any amount of custom sets by community, too!
➢ Play Deathmatch, Duel, CTF, Domination (and more!)
➢ Enhanced bots for both local and online use in Deathmatch
➢ Compatible with GZDoom from 1.9.1 to 4.x+ (for single player + fancy effects)
➢ Compatible with Zandronum 3.0 (for SP and all types of multiplayer)
➢ Compatible with Delta Touch (for Quakin' on the go!)
➢ QCDE maps: a set of 43 maps made for QCDE, both original and demakes from QC, Q1, Q3, Q4, QL and Doom 4
➢ AeonQCDE mapset: a dedicated version of AeonDM (33 maps, Cacoward) with custom item placement for a better Quake-like experience
➢ Optional metal soundtrack by Michael Markie with original songs and covers of well-known favorites
➢ Damage numbers, speedometer, in-game champion info screens, and tons of customization with very sane defaults
➢ Lootboxes! For free!
➢ And more!
Why would you even?
Because sometimes the world doesn't need another hero, it needs a monster I'm unoriginal like that
Other than that, because I always find I want to use weapons from a game, moreso a DM-only game like QC, in a single player environment where a zillion maps are available. There is real fun in using these weapons in a semi-endless solo environment. And while we're at it, we might as well enable the DM part to play with Zandronum.
What's new in v2.5?
➢ The Last Champion: Painkiller. Roster closes at 30 champions. I guess this isn't true anymore. Sorry, not sorry.
➢ 5 New Maps: Vale of Pnath (QC), Lh'owoken (QC), Molten Falls (QC), Placebo Effect (Q4), Quarantine (QL)
➢ Drastic rebalance of abilities in PvE, making them stronger and rarer on average
Developers (the usual suspects):
With champion lore written by: Ivory Duke
With modern metal soundtrack by: Michael Markie
