Angelic Aviary is an enemy replacement mod that pits Doomguy against the forces of heaven; beautiful angelic warriors bent upon freezing the earth solid and incorporating it into heaven. All enemies are custom made with new art, attacks, sounds and abilities. Enemies are balanced for vanilla gameplay, but the mod is compatible with almost all custom weapon mods and map packs.
-Enemy replacement types for all enemies including SStroops and Commander Keen. All enemies have new attacks, abilities and behaviors with a heavy emphasis on enemy mobility.
-Highly balanced for vanilla gameplay.
-Universal compatibility with almost all doom gameplay mods. Fight the forces of heaven with your favorite weapon packs!
-Over 4000 frames of custom animation unique to this mod (No realm 667 asset flips). Full 8 rotations for almost all enemies.
-Compatibility with almost all Doom/Heretic maps packs. This includes maps that usually don't allow mods such as Golden souls 2 and Elementalism.
-Unique gameplay with Heretic. Heretic angels have altered stats different from doom angels and have been rebalanced to better fit with Heretic maps and weapons. Gameplay is highly focused on using timebombs of the ancients which many angels drop on death.
-Lots and lots of Easter eggs, including hidden enemies only accessible with select map packs and weapon mods.
Appearances can be deceiving. Behind the cuteness and beauty of their physical forms lie the spirits of warriors who have fought off both hellspawn and man. Compared to demons, angels tend to be more aggressive and dangerous in mobs, but less spongy and easier in one-on-one fights. As the majority of the angels are fliers, they flock in large numbers and can easily surround and overwhelm a slow player.
Learning to prioritizing targets is fundamental, even more so compared to vanilla doom. Certain angels if not put down quickly can resurrect their sisters, summon massive armies or fully charge up to unleash a massive flurry of bullets. Some angels will even require the player to think about when they're going to kill an enemy as killing certain enemies at the wrong time can led to severe consequences. Learning each angel's quirks, exploitable weaknesses, and how she functions alone and in a flock is key to survival.
Note: Infinite height MUST be disabled!! They are alot of flying enemies!
I also recommend turning on freelook and disabling autoaim.
