I will surely care about this mod, I promise.

I am glad to present to you the "Planet Nexion: Conversion"!
It is a mod that adds monsters, weapons and items from "Planet Nexion" Wolfenstein 3D mod to Doom.
Many new mechanics were added/changed/tweaked on top of the original mod.

This mod features:
  • 6 new enemies
  • 7 new items
  • 4 new weapons

Planned updates:
  • Improve the balance (for now it's very hard to play)
  • Add more sounds
  • Add new skelegoyle attacks and moves
  • Somehow insert the whole story into the "Read This!"
  • Make ceiling hangers check if it's an actual ceiling and not a sky
  • Improve enemies descriptions
  • Add README
  • More better screenshots and probably a video trailer

I strongly recommend you to check out the original mod:
(yes, I could not find the mod outside of moddb)

Forgot to mention, it's written in Zscript, so no Zandronum support. Would you mind sharing the error? I remember testing the mod on the latest gzdoom version.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like I've found and fixed the problem. Thank you for the contribution, though.

Oooh... Very impressive. I think i saw your wip vids at some discord server. Didn't know it was actually finished!... Or keep updating!

And i say the overall monochrome feels are really nice and appealing. I'll give this a try soon.

Well my GZDoom g4.5.0 64-bit works just fine, though. Make sure you're running the latest GZDoom with recent mods.

Anyways i played it a little and it's quite interesting. The monochrome aesthetics are quite working and it feels like doom is survival horror game now. However the enemies are overall overpowered and just unfair. Zombies have higher damage output and so do the flying eyeballs, the worst enemy. They does hitscan unlike the imps in vanilla doom and makes your sight darker and screwier. The wobble just won't stop and makes my brain... Simply scrambled. And the game only gives me the melee weapon, so it's definitely unfair in my opinion.

Weapons are okay, but i found BH Generator rather finicky. The projectile sucks me without giving me a second thought as well. But hey, this mod looks promising! Keep it ip.

Thanks for the feedback! I noticed as well that enemies were unbalanced, so I put an option to start with a ranged weapon in options menu. Though it's a bandaid, you made a good suggestion to decrease zombie damage output. I also made eyeballs' damage fall off at distance, but I think I might as well tune their blinding and damage down. Also I would add more safety to BH Generator, since now you can't fire it and go forward at the same time.
